"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. Itís a universe of gumshoes and gun molls, of dark deeds and hard choices. But this isnít just any noir world. The laws of physics can be broken here ó like every other law ó leading to criminal warlocks who ply magic like bootleggers smuggling gin. Inhuman ďgauntsĒ ó men twisted into the form of inhuman monsters ó rule the streets, while private detectives provide justice for a price. Itís a world just a shade off our own, where the skyscrapers loom taller and the shadows yawn wider. Itís a world with a dark riddle at its heart, one which only the brave or the desperate have the guts to seek. Itís a world on the cusp of the abyssÖ a world waiting at the edge of midnight.
