A brief overview, wherein we quickly bring you to understand the sequence of events leading to the present and enumerate the manner in which they differ from what you may already know.
At the start of the American Revolution, a clever occultist discovered what he surmised was a way to rip open and reconfigure all of time and space. Instead of being ridiculed, as he was in our history, the First Continental Congress, convinced of his plan’s feasibility, funded him completely. The combination of capital, talent, and luck enabled him to tear open a rift and push the entire continent of North America through.
Such massive magical energies cannot be released without consequences. The occultist was vaporized instantly, the mystic powers tearing his body to it’s component atoms. Simultanously, ninety percent of the population underwent radical transformation, becoming creatures out of myth. Many once peaceful animals became enraged beasts and many of the mentally unstable lost all semblance of civility.
In this world gone mad there are now dozen of factions and countless opportunities. Capable adventurous people are needed more then ever before. It is a time of grand schemes and petty self preservation, a time for mighty heroes and great deeds. It is your time to rise and take fate into your own hands.
