Setting
skyline.jpg

Så langt er det skummelt lite å si om settingen, egentlig.

Fantastiske, solfylte San Fransisco. Byen med trikk, pyramidetårn, tre magiske søstre, en gigantisk chinatown, pyramide-skyskraper, årlige festivaler og Alcatraaaaaaz. Hjembyen til de fleste karakterene, oppholdssted for resten av dem.

Men, selvfølgelig, det stopper jo ikke der. Nettene er mørkere. Skyggene er dypere. Menneskenes hjerter rommer ondskap (mye som i virkeligheten på det punktet, egentlig). Dette er et 'frisco som skjuler monstre i sine dybder, en by der ugjerninger foregår daglig, usett av media. Okkulte brorskap møtes ukentlig til utrygge ritualer, mens pelsbekledde vesener flyr over takene i sin søken etter blod. Fortidens skygge strekker sin hånd langt inn i framtiden, og karakterene vil snart finne ut at ingenting er helt som man først tror.

Velkommen til World of Darkness á la Henrik.
