A New Dark Age Has Begun

By 2052, the American Dream has become a nightmare. While elections are still held every four years, they’ve become little more than spectacles played out to give the theocratic government a veneer of legitimacy. Most Americans live below the poverty line, and one third live on the streets. Some resort to cannibalism to get by and all quiver in fear of the Inquisitors, female telepathic assassins who police the populous for thought crimes and who act as judge, jury, and executioner.

And in the shadows, lurks an even greater evil, something that goes about unseen, for America’s downfall had come about not by chance, but by design. We are all held hostage by unimaginable forces, who see us as nothing more than pieces on a chess board.

Darkness in America and its eight sequels takes place in a massive universe that spans millions of years. The stories below flesh out the back stories of some of the individuals and factions that inhabit it, a few of which you will not encounter until much later in the series.
