The Underground

There's the London we all know.

And then there's the Underground. The real Underground, a secret world of supernatural forces and strange creatures that walk the city streets hidden in plain sight. Witches, vampires, werewolves. Shapeshifters and humans with extraordinary powers. Ghosts. And the Other Realm, where the fae dwell, and where magic leaks out into every corner of the city.

While the parties of Westminster fight their political battles, there is another much more dangerous power struggle going on. It's a battle for territory, and it is fought by the various supernatural factions that claim dominion over the city.

Will peace prevail? Or is conflict inevitable? Let the story begin...

WELCOME TO THE NEXUS (setting)
"The greatest tragedy that can befall us is to go unimagined." – N. Scott Momaday
The thing is, there's always a portal. Sometimes it's a door, sometimes it's a shadow, sometimes it's a step to the left when you should have gone right. However it happened, here you are: in the in-between of everywhere. Maybe you can get home, maybe you can't. Maybe you're alive when you shouldn't be. Maybe you're just looking for a great organic farmer's market. You're here now. Might as well make the most of it.
WHAT TO DO (story)
"We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, we travel to be lost." – Ray Bradbury
Ever wonder where the magician's assistant goes after she's put in the box? Where the trickster god goes when he steps out of the panel? Where the forgotten corners of the world go when the maps are redrawn? You're about to find out--you're one of them now. You can go just about anywhere from here, if you're brave and foolish and know the way. Or you can wait for it to all come to you. The lost puzzle pieces of existence are cobbling themselves together again. Want to help?
