So. I have been working on this setting for a little while, and I was wondering. How big would the interest be for a horrorcentric adventure in the early days of the American Civil War? This will not be straight up taking names for Lovecraft works, as much as it draw from inspiration from the mythos in general, as well as mixing with several other myths and legends.
Its the very early stages of a war that is gonna change the political landscape of America forever. The South and the North are at war, brothers against brothers, fathers against sons. There is a turmoil spreading as the nation is divided into you the Union and Confederacy, but a whole other war is about to start. Legion has risen, and while the world has no idea of this, the demi-gods influence is already creeping across every facet of the war. Men fallen to desperation take up unholy deals in order to gain power, ghouls feeding upon the left behind corpses of southern dead. Union soldiers massacred by unknown assailants. Villages burning but with no soldier in sight. A epidemic is spreading, cults are growing, spirits are restless and now, now every Faction with a stake in the new world is moving to find the source of this evil. They have no idea what is coming, and neither do.. you,
You are members of organizations tasked with eradication of unnatural creatures and vile beings. You may belong to any faction, or you may make your own. (Provide me with information regarding said organization if such is the case) . For better or worse, you are all drawn to a small town in south western theater of war. South is still holding strong, but this village is suffering. A strange loss of pigment in the natives skin, grey spots on their eyes and the telltale signs of Ghoul packs roaming the countryside has been spotted. Now it's is your job to clear the mess up, you just have no idea how deep it runs.
