19Hour Clock Tower

"We only take advantage of the way the Tower runs. It's why all of us are here."
The massive Clock Tower stands as the sole establishment in an area enclosed by an infinite ring of forestry. When Sirra wakes up on an unfamiliar riverbank, she finds herself in a place far from her world. That one can only return from the way they came is a fact, and it becomes all she can do to uncover the mysteries surrounding it — why can it exist without a connection to the outside? Who are the people that claim to be its caretakers? And, most perplexing of all, what is the Clock Tower's relationship with Sirra?
It begins to turn.
