In an alternate timeline, the Emperor of Albion is one of the most powerful on Earth, stretching across North America, Great Britain, Iberia and North-West Africa. Its armies are famed for winning, and its vice-royalties govern securely. The twelve chivalrous Grand Orders have long since turned into entities more akin to mafia and corporations, but they get along, apart from that of the Serpent which has gone off on a darkened path of its own. Cyclops, the giant computer network takes information and gives answers, manned by masters and acolytes of its own. Giant airships tie the provinces together and in Albion City, the Emperor and his court hold sway.
But now mysterious globes of light are coming out of the jungle, supporting the Fulani rebels and attacking Albion’s outposts throughout West Africa. Worse, there seem to be lights in other locations within the empire. And now the Grand Order of the Serpent rears its head.

Never The Dawn takes place in an alternate world where the Earth is divided up between several competing empires. Within one of these, Albion, strange events are beginning to manifest themselves, not least on the battlefront in West Africa.
With the world divided into several competing empires, Albion finds itself at war with more than it bargained for in West Africa. It slowly emerges that this is just a part of a larger pattern, and various agencies and chivalric orders begin the quest to get to the bottom of things.
The story begins in Timbuktu, capital of Albion’s vice-royalty of West Africa, and centre of the ongoing war against the native Fulani. Only now it appears that they have gained the aid of much more formidable allies, allies that the Viceroy and his staff cannot begin to understand.
