As the old saying goes, between Sanctuary and Paradise... lies only the Darkness.
These are ancient lands which bear pathways to far away Realms. These are called Paradise by the Eldritch. These pathways are jealously guarded by the Fae and the Therian as well as their kin.
(Imagine Werewolf by Night, or if Supernatural and Dukes of Hazard had a pilot episode together, like Grimm or Once Upon a Time.)
Atlanta Metro Area
The Crossroads of Gothica are known to shape destinies. This undercity is known as Sanctuary to the Empyrean. These territories are hidden by the Radiant and the Grimm and their allies.
(Imagine Iron Age comic action from Dr. Strange to John Constantine, with some Neverwhere or the Labyrinth added to taste.)
Between There Be Dragons
The world of Shade holds many hidden dangers. There are many monsters hidden in many closets, under many beds, but worst of all within the hearts of the wicked. Some of these threats are only misguided or misunderstood. A greater elemental evil known as the Demogorgon has lain sundered in the glory of Creation. Always it creeps and plots and gibbers madly as it seeks to destroy our world and so recreate its own seething cauldron kingdom of chaos from long before the age of mankind. Cults dedicated to one of the four aspects of the Demogorgon spring up from time to time like weeds. All of the Shade community lies hidden from modern society by ancient accords and dedicates itself to safeguarding Creation from all such malice.
