It’s 1997; cellphones are expensive, big and ugly allowing only phone calls, televisions are likewise large and ungainly things, there is only basic internet, no Google, Facebook or YouTube in fact there is little function or related use unless one is a programmer. Gas is fairly expensive for it’s time, other products are decently priced and available. The Human Genome Project is nearing completion. There is war overseas but it has little effect on those in the United States and even less on those in the remote regions of the Pacific Northwest.
There have been werewolves and other creatures living quietly and in relative peace here for centuries or even millennia. They keep to themselves, stay out of sight of the mundane people who have taken over the land and do not make themselves known or even have an established homeland so that there is no more evidence of them than the other natural creatures. They even have human allies who live in the region who keep the secret, many supplying a small amount of livestock in exchange for protection against other predators.
As the world has contracted under increased urbanization, clearing land for lumber and mining and eventually agriculture and settlements, werewolves of other types have been welcomed into the wilderness areas of the northwest despite their cultural differences. Unfortunately this is also the era of spy satellites, black sites and bottomless pits of funding for weapons and projects research and the werewolves have been noticed. The only interest of the U. S. government is incorporating werewolf skills and physiology into the modern soldier.
Now there are Special Forces moving through the region, looking to capture a sample for further research (dead or alive). The community of werewolves have agreed to work together - even those of questionable values and evil spirit have been convinced that now is the time for survival and all have put aside their differences for the sole purpose of staying alive. This is the burgeoning story of how this happens - whether the werewolves survive, are scattered or die out is up to the players and the choices they make.
