Heroes of this dark era must deal with the Great Depression, constant cold war between the North and South, the unrelenting industrialization of the modern world, corrupt governments, and more than a few terrors lurking in the darkness. Those who struggle against this evil are steely-eyed private dicks, fast-talking grifters, wild-eyed inventors, and shadowy houngans. With enough moxie—and more than a little luck—they might just be enough to turn the tide.
