What Lies Beneath The Darkness
Ravenswatch. One of the largest cities of our time, ever pulsating under the drums of the new factories. Beyond the veil that keeps common citizens in oblivion, factions employ all resources available in a never-ending battle for control. And that includes us.
We are The Horrors, beings divided between humanity and the supernatural. Our human facade is useful for our masters, since it allows us to navigate society undetected.
But it is our dark powers that interest them most.
The night calls us. It is time to set foot into the dark alleys once more. There's a new mission to carry out. Through the shadows we dance, as we inspire even more stories for the local legends.
Ravenswatch is hungry, and it cannot wait.
What lies beneath the darkness is a gaslamp fantasy game about intrigue and struggle.
You play as a Horror employed by a faction to expand their dominance over the victorianesque city of Ravenswatch, while you fight to balance the human and supernatural natures that inhabit you.
Who are you going to be?
♦ A Reluctant Vampire?
♦ A Wild Lycanthrope?
♦ A Repentant Fallen Angel?
♦ A Restless Specter?
♦ A Cryptic Witch?
♦ Or a Mischievous Fae?
You will face the dark streets of Ravenswatch performing missions for your faction. You live an internal battle between your human links and your dark instincts, between what you want and what your faction demands.
