on the 3rd october, 1892, the little-known writer and authority on the occult, g. o. durrant vanished without a trace from his home. in the days that followed, a package arrived at the desk of his friend, a reporter for the paper. contained within was a journal containing over two decades' worth of information on the supernatural beings that inhabit the city and those that associate with them.
and the instructions to share the journal's content with the public, should anything befall the author.
unbeknownst to most, this potential threat has set in motion a struggle between those that wish to keep the unnatural hidden and others that seek to expose the existence of the beings we share our world with. whatever their reasons for doing so, a great many wish to get their hands on that journal, and are willing to do whatever it takes.
but worse is looming on the horizon. the great and terrible old ones have awoken from their slumber of several millennium and look to escaping their prisons through any means necessary in order to continue their path of destruction and consumption across the stars.
