The Bones from NAAVA

Naava: Kostiděj

Jan Nepomuk Pabersky and Dr. Ryzner – assistant and archeologist-amateur – investigate the mysteries of old, lost treasures and bones of their ancestors, trying to save them from the unrelenting greed of collectors and the imperial police waiting for them in the Prague nooks and crannies.

Steam and night. Earth and light. We find ourselves in Prague of the late 19th century where the ancient is still alive, but the industrial revolution is knocking at the door. Our heroes, Jan N. Páberský and his mentor, amateur archeologist, Dr. Rýzner, uncover a web of intrigue and greed hidden behind a lofty goal of education and cultur. Old artifacts and mysterious items are recovered from the depths of the earth and then they end up in hands of those who might be able to harness their power. Páberský and Rýzner fight for these items, stolen from the public eye, to be restored to their rightful place – a museum. But what will they do when the ancients still whisper riddles from the dark – and tie the world with the one long dead with gold, bones, and blood-soaked earth? Páberský and Rýzner must face not only the bloodthirsty occultists – they also must battle and defeat those who would like to enter our world from the hidden domain that was dormant for ages – Naava.
