High Concept: Defending the Saving Remnant at the end of someone else’s world
Genre: Urban Horror/Dark Fantasy
Overview: To the 350,000 souls still living in Haven, the world has come to an end and they’ve been plunged into a watery Hell.
At the end of the day, the Senior Partners saw it as a simple hit. Admittedly, the target was a particularly troublesome world and its inhabitants, but the principle was the same: find a shooter, do the job and create plausible deniability.
Jenna Crowne, one of the firm’s most trusted junior partners, took to the job with her usual zeal. Worlds died, she surmised, when they were fated to die. Thus, the easiest way to kill this world and all the creatures upon it was to bring about an apocalypse. A manageable one.
Using ancient and grueling rituals, the city of Haven was stripped from the world’s memory and planted… elsewhere. The rituals drew creatures from across the creations, as they were supposed to, and the prophecy began to fall into place.
And now, as the waters rise and monsters knock at their door, a few brave souls try to fight the machinations around them and return to a world that has forgotten them.
