And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal...
The stars of heaven fell unto the earth,
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together,
And every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men,
And the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman,
And every free man hid themselves,
And said hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne.
-- Revelation 6:12 - 6:16
Scotland, and most of the world, is locked in the grip of an economic downturn. Society is quietly shaken by escalated international tensions over arms races, and increasing cultural clashes between differing races, creeds and religions. Suicide and unemployment rates are up, marriage and birthrates are down, and the general feeling reported through myriad media outlets promotes a bleak outlook of despair. Quality of life regressed from its peak with blame seeded in mutated pathogens causing widespread outbreaks of illness, global warming, dramatic increases in violent crimes, and every tumble and turn of a jittery stock market. No one has answers, only accusations. Humanity seems to have reached critical mass, and some are saying that Nature means to correct the problem herself.
Edinburgh is a city on the brink. The great artistic capital of the north, settled upon seven hills, is the epicenter for something of unmeasured scientific and mystical significance. It is 2011, and everything about the world is going to change.
Revelations: Edinburgh is a game using the nWoD system, with Mage and Changeling supplements, and a unique theme.
