It’s always cold this time of year in Chicago but lately in Melrose Park, on the edge of the Huppert Woods, there is a special chill in the night air. Something has disturbed the mausoleum hidden there aside the old Orfeo Estate and there’s been ashen corpses showing up throughout the park and surrounding neighborhood. Local legend has it that Lord Orfeo who was a prominent member of Chicago society a century ago was actually a vampire who came on a boat from Moldova, intent on continuing his bloodline on the new continent. There is panic in the streets as people fear that he has awoken, renewed his quest, and now he has company…. The dark lord has called upon his army to rise from the Resurrection Cemetery in nearby town of Justice, IL. Will you escape from the caves and catacombs or will you become one of them?
Melrose Park may seem like a sleepy suburb, but it is indeed about to be shocked awake. Within the walls of an old industrial building, a supernatural portal has opened to another place—and time. It is a window into a post-post-apocalyptic world where the trees, animals, and blue skies are no more and all that is left is desolated urban sprawl. Streets, shops, and even casinos, have become hunting grounds for the mutant criminals and tortured souls that come out at night in what has been dubbed the “Dead End District”. The government, police force, and military are no more… leaving only “The Judge” to rule the land. You will be dragged before him and must submit your fate to his whim. Or will you break free and escape the hellish tribunal?
