Step into a London lit up by the Elemental spirits: the fiery Dragons, the airy Fumis, the watery Chads and the earthbound Magogs.

Welcome to 1764 London…our heroes Marisee and Robert are the elemental detectives chasing clouds across the city to stop the vengeful shepherdess and prevent London slumbering for eternity. Get ready to enter a world where magic sparks just beneath the surface can we solve the mystery of the millennium?
