The harvesting of magic from the other side has gone on relatively well, with an occasional slip or two, around the world for hundreds of years now, with the Danelon having a firm grip on the situation; expertly exploiting the energies to make themselves even more powerful, with an occasional upstart group or wild keymaster getting in the way every now and then.
However, a door is being opened on Alkatraz Island in the middle of the night in San Francisco, and the regal creature with his wife coming through the gate is far more than anyone had prepared for.
Now San Francisco is about to be plunged into a magical crisis that threatens to expose the Danelon, reveal magic to the world at large, and result in countless deaths.
The heroes must find the way to defeat the emerging royal pair and then also perhaps decide if the Deanelon really ought to be forced out into the light, and what to do about magic as well.
This world is based heavily on the King Midas Story (the most famous of them as there are in fact, many ancient myths about the foolish king,) and also a few major plot points will be based on Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice” while also combining this with the “Keymaster” world. However, the basis in Shakespeare is very loose and no knowledge of the play is particularly necessary or even helpful..
This game will have horror elements but will also involve quite a bit of action and sci-fi elements as well.
King Midas and his Queen will be more anthropomorphic and less lovecraftian than is typical for most of the nightmare creatures inherent in this world.
