A Shadow Over Chicago
Chicago. A city of passion, a city of extremes. Broiling hot summers, and freezing winters. With a poverty stricken South Side with nearly barren strips of abandoned lots; and an opulent North Side with vast mansions and some of the richest people in the nation. Its people are as different as its weather and neighborhoods.
Unseen, unrealized by many of the citizens of Chicago, a dark shadow has drifted over the city. A storm brewing on the horizon being feed by the hatred, rage, and corruption of the people. Racial and class tensions are tense and near breaking.
If the humans of the city are any measure of the growing self-destructive tendencies of the city, then it is the denizens of the shadows, the supernaturals who represent its boiling point. Vampires, werewolves, and mages alike feel something coming. They are more aware of the growing tensions, of the heat growing beneath the surface. And they are note unaffected by it, if anything they are affected by it more then any human.
