The World of Darkness is not about someplace long ago and far away. It’s our world today, but different. Looked at from a global perspective, it seems the same. Looking closer, though, the details differ. The house down the road isn’t just abandoned it’s haunted. Nobody goes to the old quarry anymore. Some teenagers didn’t come back. That new nightclub is so cool, but creepy. Did you see that guy who kept staring last night?
Characters in the World of Darkness can blur the line between reality and the occult. Indeed, that’s what it’s all about. Exploring a world of mystery that tries to keep itself hidden. A world that punishes those who look too deep. But those who refuse to look suffer even worse. They’re rocked on seas of conspiracies of which they go unaware. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. There are no easy answers, and knowing is not half the battle. It’s only the first shot in a long, grinding war against the shadows.
