It is a story worthy of Greek drama. Humanity discovers the secret elixir that will bring us prosperity on an unimagined scale, enabling the construction of fabulous cities, travel faster than the speed of sound, communications at the speed of light and the means to bring forth bounty from barren land. But just as we raise ourselves to these god-like levels, we discover that the potion is poisoned. By drinking it, we are upsetting the natural workings of the world in a way that will soon destroy the very basis of our civilisation.
There is one small voice of hope, however. We have discovered the secret just in time - and we possess both the knowledge and the power to neutralise the poison and make all well. All that is needed is for the world's peoples to put aside their differences and work together for a common goal. In this devilish test set by the scheming gods, can we pull through? Can we make it?
