Today should have been a normal day in Faustsberg. The city was bustling with activity as any was wont to do on an early saturday afternoon. The earthquake that had shook up the city six months ago had laid waste to many of its more ancient buildings and neighborhoods but the majority had been left untouched, rescue efforts had been prompt and organized. victims had been found, saved, cared for and buried according to their needs, and reconstruction was well under way. In half a year life had mostly returned to normal for the majority of Faustbergians but little did they know that on this sunny weekend afternoon, another disaster was rearing its head, gaze locked on the innocent metropolis. One that this time would be much more subtle and sinister than the quake that had shaken it earlier. One that, without affecting even most of the people in the city directly, threatened to snuff them all out without care and without mercy should it come to pass uninterrupted.
