LexOccultum: Alter Ego
Europe¸ the 1 8 th century. The church is losing its grip on men struggling with old beliefs and dogmas. Alchemists¸ occultists¸ and secret societies dig deep into old mysteries and ancient obscurities. The Enlightenment is not only about breaking free from old institutions and structures¸ but also about discovering what has been hidden for hundreds of years¸ even millennia. The Illuminati¸ the Freemasons¸ the old Templars¸ and other secret societies hide in dark chambers¸ plotting for a new world order¸ or seeking to uncover the mysteries of dark arts and ancient wisdoms.
The nobles and aristocrats are a dying breed¸ living in decadence and excess¸ while the common people suffer in poverty. This is an era of enlightenment¸ but also of ignorance. Few know anything about the growing darkness; the vampires and other offspring of the devil. While conspiracies grow below the surface¸ kings and priests preach about submission and obedience. But who is to save men from this twilight of the gods¸ from falling into the darkness and being consumed by evil? Is it true that the apocalypse is coming?
LexOccultum takes place in a fictive historical 1 8 th century¸ where the occult and supernatural are real¸ but not yet in full bloom.
