Caitlin is a normal young woman, fresh faced out of college, working hard in an office acting as the head Honchoís secretary. Sheís got a lovely soon to be husband, born from a high class family whoís literally rolling in dough. The young woman has good friends, loved ones and with a little luck, and some night school courses she just might be a CEO someday. Then maybe, just maybe sheíll be able to relax.
Everything is perfect or so sheís been telling herself... But, somewhere deep inside she realizes something is wrong.
One day a young woman shows up seemingly out of nowhere (Exact mode of meeting is up for discussion...) And through a bit of twists and turns and other Drama, she pulls poor Caitlin into the world on the other side, normally unperceived by Ďnormals.í Magic is a reality, gods and goddesses walk the land, other strange creatures come up from the dark places, and our normal young woman is thrust into it, doing her best to deal with it as the world that she knows rejects her.
*This idea is heavily inspired by Neil Gaimanís books Neverwhere and American Godís I am looking to keep with a similar feel. No truly world shaking magic, just small displays of supernatural power that sets the otherís and eventually Caitlin apart from the the people who haven't awakened.
** This could work as a one on one, or as a group game... Either way I want all players to help create the World Behind the Curtain. If this does end up turning into a large game I would like players to take the role of "the others"
*** I would prefer a woman to be playing the young woman Caitlin encounters, and she will be a love interest, once barriers are broken down by her newfound situation.
