WebMage postulates a universe where the gods and other supernatural beings of mythology are alive and well and breeding offspring in the many layers of reality which make up the multiverse. Ravirn is a young computer geek like many others you might meet on a college campus. But there is a difference. Ravirn is the descendant of Lachesis, the fate that measures out the thread of life. Ravirn refers to her as his grandmother simply because it would take to long to prefix it with the correct number of "greats", even if he knew how many there should be. Now, you would think that a college student with access to the servers that run reality itself would be living on easy street. But then you haven't just discovered that your great (to the who-knows what power) aunt Atropos (she who cuts the thread of life) has decided to end free-will itself and you're all that stands between her and all of humanity across all the realities.
