In a world much like our own where modern technology is but a tool for ancient evil. In the darkness creatures and secret societies dwell and conspire while mega-corporations dominate the light. The unseen vampires, magical folk, and other beings of this world, hide amongst the mostly clueless human masses while manipulating and controlling them for their own benefit.


Harrowed World is a 'grimgothic' setting combining gothic trappings and aesthetics with a grim dystopian atmosphere. To match this dark setting, protagonists of Harrowed World stories are not morally superior heroes but flawed and often morally grey people who are usually not entirely human.
