Luminas

Luminas was an information journal about the Obscure World, published mostly for the benefit of the Lighted World citizens, in order to fill the vacuum left by the disappearance of Lumière sur les Cités. The information presented therein is varied, but perhaps not entirely reliable. See Télépénombrateur.
