Note: This is a demo released for NaNoRenO 2020

A city of snow, hearts forged in steel. Doctor Imani Ward carries the scars of a war long ended, and our own burdens as we move forward.  With the Doctor's help mending the wounds of others, both in body and mind, our pasts begin to bind us together, memories echoing into the future ahead.

Assist your patients, as you've done throughout your career — the days carrying on, one after the next.  Provide aid to those in need, forging your bonds with those still here.  Your job is not yet over, your mission still unaccomplished.
