As they move against the enemies of their society’s psychic overlord, his agents must balance their own misgivings and their team’s allegiances with the needs of the mission.
The city is enveloped by a choking malaise, an invisible force sapping it’s inhabitants and industry. Is it an conspiracy, a twisted secret, or something even darker?
