Venice, 1795. A great tear has opened, ripping the heavens open. The Rent in the Sky sank most of Europe beneath the waves, but the City of Canals stands unscathed. Positioned to take advantage of the situation, the people of Venice are fast becoming a new world power.
Yet life under the Rent in the Sky isn’t without its problems. Bubbling under the surface of the city is a madness, fuelled by Eldritch beasts that have found a way through the Rent from another reality. The Rashaar are silently growing in number, living in the canals. While their existence is kept secret from most, the Guild makes secrets their trade. With hands in pockets across Venice, this shadowy band of thieves is becoming more powerful than even the Doge would like to admit.
Taking to the streets at night to conduct their elicit affairs; the Rashaar and the Guild frequently clash, met with rival gangs from all over, masked and armed. Violence is common under the light of the Rent, the canals often run red with the previous night’s deeds while the city carries on with its business and revelries.
