// The Story //
This town was once considered fairly normal, the crime rate was rather low and the people were friendly. Things were as they should be in a small town such as this. That was when it happened. It was a perfect summer night. The moon was mostly full in the sky and the stars twinkled cheerfully above. There was a light breeze that night, the breeze softly pushed away the days heat. As the day became yesterday and tomorrow became today the town would celebrate its two hundredth birthday. There were festivities planned for that day, a celebration in the park with fireworks when the sky was dark enough for them. The town would have been filled with smiling faces and cheerful people. Too bad that never happened.
That night the people of the town slept in their beds but were not safe. As they slept the shadows swallowed their consciousness’s and took over the town. They used this night to gain a corporeal presence. The shadows grew stronger as they devoured more and more people leaving their unconscious minds to wander the shadow realm. The shadow realm is a place that is neither here nor there, it exists as a parallel in between worlds and time. To the people who were swallowed by the sinister shadows it appears as a dark and maleficent version of the town they had grown up in. Dangers lurk at every corner and they cannot leave this town. Their bodies lay in their beds in what seems to be a comatose state. The town is unreachable and sealed off completely. The area around the town is completely sealed off in both the real world and the shadow world.
There is a way out, if you can find it. If the people were able to regain their corporeal forms they would weaken the shadow’s hold on their town and eventually drive off the sinister beings. But it won’t be easy, you probably won’t survive the horrors that the shadow world holds for you. In this world you can trust none for even your closest friends can be corrupted and turned against you. The longer you stay in this world, the more your grip on who you were before slips until you are indistinguishable from the shadows themselves.
Your characters have woken up in the shadow realm where nothing is as it seems. You can feel the seductive pull of insanity creeping its way into your soul. You know that the longer you stay here, the more of yourself you will lose. But you notice something else. A knowing deep within yourself. Something that once lay dormant within you in your reality has blossomed within you giving you an ability you never had before. It grows stronger the longer you are here, the more you fade into the shadows, the stronger your ability becomes. You have a choice, you can wander the darkness with no hope of returning to your former home or you can fight the shadows and pull yourself through, back to your world. Either path will be filled with difficult challenges.
