The world is slowly spiraling out of it's orbit of false tranquility into the grim truth as to what is happening to it's inhabitants. The world is changing and far from the better, no, it's actually growing worse. If pollution and global warming wasn't enough, something else decided to spin itself and lodge itself into the proverbial engine of it all.
The economy in the Western world teeters on toppling in on itself, hundreds of thousands lose their jobs, their homes, divorce rates up high... so many things that can just get the average man or woman angry... well, that's the problem there. It seems people are grown more prone succumbing to this irritation, this blight that is kicking them in the face, in fact... they take up arms and lash out at it, but the problem is, they don't stop there.
It's 2008 and there is seriously something wrong here. The Violent Crime Ratio has nearly tripled since it was last categorized to 12% and it seems to continue to rise. But it isn't just the US that is suffering, the entire world is slowly descending into chaos and further down the path of insanity. Riots, break ins, murders, serial acts of depravity, it's turning over and over again so much you can guess what's on the news tonight. Many homes, many city buildings slowly turning into the "new hood" and the places not even the bravest cops or even thugs dare travel... and yet no one has any clue as to why this is happening. Something has to be stopped before the insane are the only ones who judge who is sane or not.
Plunge face-first into the darkness to find out the truth before it's too late, but don't forget to shine the light or the darkness may consume yet another soul.
People of different backgrounds, pasts and other occupations from a street bum to that of a beat cop find themselves banded together as they're brought closer to the truth and to the source of insanity, but will they solve this mystery before it's too late or will they succumb to the insanity that is slowly clenching it's dark, heavy death grip around the neck of the earth.
This game is a hybrid game I intend to run. Using various elements of survival, horror, self-discovery and the usual bit of splatterpunk throw in. It'll be a system game using the core nWoD rules, so mortal creation only. This will be a violent game with many dark themes involved. Using the nWoD core rules to keep the system simple, streamlined and deadly.
Now, go out my children and kill their pain.
