In 2014 all Hell broke loose. Strange occurrences and creatures began popping up all over the world; what we once enjoyed as spine-tingling scary stories soon became the stuff of reality as supernatural beings menaced cities and towns after dark. Matters quickly escalated until the world was suddenly plunged the world into darkness, allowing the vampires and werewolves to run rampant and threatening humanity’s freedom - and very existence.
Until daylight returned.
Though nobody is quite sure how, the effect was broken and humanity was able to rally its forces to fight back, often levelling entire city blocks in its attempt to banish the supernatural beings that had taken root there. It has now been three years since the ritual was broken and the world is recovering - and fighting to wipe out the threat that still lurks in the shadows.
Some have fled to the country, hoping that isolation will protect them. Others have clustered in the cities, relying on safety in numbers as well as a heavily-militarised police force to keep the wolves from the door.
In Edinburgh the once-beautiful city has been ravaged by air strikes and military intervention. Those that remain there must deal with the fact that the streets are not always safe to walk alone. People still cling to normality where they can - attending university, raising families - but for those remaining life has been altered forever.
