The evil spirits contained in Pandora’s box have been unleashed upon Victorian era England causing untold madness and despair. Ordinary people are transformed into hideous monsters. You are the last remaining spirit, Hope. Can you rally the few survivors and restore order to the world?
Created for Lilith’s Enticement. Playing as the spirit of hope you can jump from person to person using their special abilities. Also you can shape group strategy through the use of marching formations and movement orders. Beware your influence can only go so far, if a party member falls too far behind you may loose them.
Each person who can join you is an individual with their own strengths and weaknesses:
Some will be fast runners; others will slow the group down.
Some will be able to withstand a great deal of punishment; others will fall from the slightest wound.
Some will excel at melee combat; others had better hide when the fighting starts.
Some will be able to shoot the wings off a fly; others can’t hit the broad side of a barn.
Some will be able to witness countless horrors; others will go mad.
Some will be able to able to convince others to join you; others will have a face only a mother could love.
