Publisher blurb from the back cover:
Lost Roads is a fantasy roleplaying game that follows migrants on their journey through a harsh, unforgiving world.
Humans, once rich with magic and resources, exploited nature beyond its means. The sun turned cities into kilns and the sea crept steadily inland. Towering floods and withering droughts led to displacement and social collapse. Modern society fell to pre-urban levels of technology. Those who did the least to cause it suffered the most.
WE ONLY GOT ONE TRY—AND WE FAILED.
Now your community travels the Lost Roads in search of home. Wield the magic of nature, bear the scars of survival, carry the fire of shared humanity, and risk betrayal from those you have no choice but to trust. Do you have the resolve needed to carry your loved ones through the Storm? Without you, there are no roots from which a new society can flourish.
