Monsters lurk in the night.
Countless vampires prey on the innocent, primitive shapeshifters indulge freely in their rage and dark spirits possess and control the living from beyond the grave. No human is entirely safe from these Horrors.
Some creatures are even more dangerous - they drastically alter reality itself to fulfil their own desires. They do not share the reality of the Masses, but instead place themselves above and beyond it, pursuing their own dangerous dreams. Through their power, any madness can be made manifest. Any dream, any nightmare, any lust or desire can be realised. Any base urge can be fulfilled through sheer force of will.
Call the Reality Deviants whatever you like — willworkers, magi, mystics, shamans - but know that they are the Ultimate Enemy. Divided, they isolate themselves from humanity, working secretly within their Chantries and sanctums as reality unravels. While forces of order work to restore the world, a thousand dangerous magical visions tear it apart.
The force of chaos is strong, but there has to be some force of order to oppose it. If the world cannot protect itself, someone must bring order to the world. Humans can uphold their own mundane laws, but a few heroic souls must fight the evils that average society can't detect or recognise. Someone must work to drive back the darkness. Of all the hidden societies in this dark, forbidding world, only one upholds order and reason and hope.
We call it the Technocracy.
