Setting Information

At one point, the idea was to present the entire setting in a sort of epistemological manner. Everything would be presented through stories. Some might be radio interviews, personal letters, and other recordings left behind from the time before. However, game fiction has a bit of a bad reputation, and not everyone would enjoy having to sift lies and propaganda to get the actual elements of the setting. Hence, the two mirrored chapters representing in character and encyclopedic views of the same concepts.

Cold Hard Truth
The academic series of articles on the setting.

Undead Fairy Tales
Vignettes and letters of a more personal nature, hinting at the zone.
