"There's a million stories in the naked city. One of them just melted your car."
Enter a world where the mean streets go on forever and the only justice comes at the end of a gun. Experience a unique take on the gritty world of noir, tailor-made for the role-playing experience. It’s a universe of gumshoes and gun molls, of dark deeds and hard choices. But this isn’t just any noir world. The laws of physics can be broken here — like every other law — leading to criminal warlocks who ply magic like bootleggers smuggling gin. Inhuman “gaunts” — men twisted into the form of inhuman monsters — rule the streets, while private detectives provide justice for a price. It’s a world just a shade off our own, where the skyscrapers loom taller and the shadows yawn wider. It’s a world with a dark riddle at its heart, one which only the brave or the desperate have the guts to seek. It’s a world on the cusp of the abyss… a world waiting at the edge of midnight.
