    About this game

    A warning was written nearly 90 years ago about the otherworldly threat of Cthulu.  The mystic known as Howard Phillips Lovecraft wrote of Chthulu and his followers, but he was largely ignored as a minor writer of fiction.  The world is now learning its folly as ancient Cthulu stirs and Deep Ones have begun to emerge from the world's watery depths to claim their place, but the Deep Ones are not the only ones with power.  While many of the world's superheroes have fallen under the initial onslaught of Cthulu's hordes, there still lies hope for humanity in an unlikely source... supervillains. 

    Premise

    This game is set in an alternate reality where the Cthulu Mythos and superheroes and villains collide.  The cult of Cthulu have finally awakened their alien god and his minions have emerged from earth's deepest bodies of water, including Lake Michigan.  This game takes place in Milwaukee where only one hero protects the city, but has many supervillain enemies.  Will the villains help defend humanity, or will they take advantage of the ensuing apocalypse for their own ends?
