Marcus, Keri, Jimmy, and their friends (the Pawns) are a group of late-teens/early-twenties young adults born in an alternate universe where the history of the United States diverged from what you learned in school. A fifty-first state, Paonia, appears on their maps, and it is here that most of their story takes place. The Pawns are involved in a series of outlandish adventures, during which they've learned that their universe and their own lives are being manipulated by a group who call themselves the Players. The Players extraordinary powers stem from their possession of nanotechnology that was used in the creation of this alternate universe. The Pawns know that at some point, they will have to take on the Players, but for now they are busy just surviving the adventures that they continue to stumble into.
