Gadgeteers are the people who make things and put things back together – and they do it exceptionally well. These people are vital resources for everyone on any side of a conflict. Call them grease-monkeys, gearheads, gadgeteers, techies or whatever, their role is the same, making the toys better and putting them back together after they get broken. Gadgeteers are often a vital part of any team but they are rarely in the spotlight, usually their work is behind the scenes making everyone else’s job easier.

As long as there have been folks with free time and streets where they could roam, there have been street gangs. Traditionally, gangs are groups of hard-living individuals united by some common bond or theme. This bond may seem trivial to outsiders such as living on the same street, belonging to the same church, or working at the same profession but for those heavily into the gangs it can be an all-important distinction. Although they usually consist of a majority of men, many gangs accept female members … as long as they’re tough enough and are willing to pledge loyalty
In the nineteenth century, science gave the world steam engines, telephones, vaccines, and dozens of other marvels that form the foundation of modern technological achievement. Despite these glorious accomplishments, this was also the time in which darker ambitions festered in remote castles, basements of sanitariums, and secluded universities. This twisted, “mad” science did not make miracles; it made monsters of flesh and bone.
Fey folk come in many forms; among the most often seen manifestations are the brownie, the fairy, the leprechaun, nymph, and the pixie. These are not the only forms that the fey folk come in, as they are associated with everything in nature and some artificial constructions as wd1.
Cults have existed nearly as long as civilization. Humanity is a fractious, conflict-prone lot that seeks a homogeneity that historically has proven impossible to achieve. Since the dawn of time, people have tried to convert others to their way of thinking. This has been true of philosophy, strategy, efficiency, and perhaps most importantly, religion.

Unfortunately, for every person who lives the good life, there are many who exist in abject poverty. The sun sets hard on the downtrodden as they face heartbreaking choices. Which child do they feed today? Can they survive another night in the elements? Things the fortunate take for granted such as sanitary water, education, medicine, and even the simplest of hopes are mere fantasy for much of the world.
The transient nature of traveling shows such as carnivals and circuses lure all manner of strange characters and mystical entities. lt’s for good reason that carnie folk are highly superstitious; interlopers carry with them a sort of supernatural baggage that flourishes in the soup of sin and innocence that pervades the big top. One of the many types of paranormal denizens of the traveling show are the evil downs.
Parapsychologists believe doppelgangers to be unique in the parapsychological world because they arc living spirits. In other words, although composed of the same energies as ghosts and poltergeists, they are not the produce of the spirit world, nor do they belong to one who is deceased. Doppelgangers are little known in a “natural” stare, and generally only become known when they impose themselves in the lives of victims. At that point, the damage they can cause is tremendous.
Although modern people might prefer to presume otherwise, humans were not the original masters of the planet. Long before the first pyramid, before the invention of the wheel, and before the first human word was spoken, the Mesozoic Era (248 to 65 million years ago) was known as the age of reptiles. Earth was quite different when dinosaurs dominated the planer. Its climate was warmer, and mild seasons promoted the growth of lush foliage. There was no polar ice, the sea level was higher, and the continents were still joined to form Pangaea, the supercontinent.
One of the most curious obsessions that necromancy has is the fascination with animating individual body parts without some kind of unifying structure, namely, a torso, to connect chem. While a floating head may not be a combat effective as an axe-wielding skeleton or as good at manual labor as a zombie, these “spare parts” given life have uses all their own.
