Mystery Synopsis:

NASA scientists have made an official Doomsday announcement that an unexpected cluster of asteroids will strike Earth in only ten days. They predict this collision will lead to global mass devastation. The top astrophysicists have exhausted all efforts to prevent the disaster, and the outlook for Mother Earth is grim.

The vampire, sorcerer, and werewolf factions have formally announced their existence to the humans and have arranged a meeting to form an alliance and save the planet. The faction leaders believe, with their combined skills, they will be able to band together and stop this catastrophe. But that can only happen if this unprecedented gathering goes well.

The factions will gather in the French Quarter of New Orleans at Dauphine Place - a legendary house of horrors. This will be the first time that supernatural beings have met with humans. Will the alliance save the world? Or, will the apocalypse commence? This is where your story begins.

The expandable team players are duplicate players that may be played in 1 of the 4 teams as follows. If you order the duplicate team players to be prepared with your game, we will divide them up into the 4 factions to be played under the following team leaders. 

Esme Willow – invite up to 42 additional Vampire players as the employees of her Planetary Defense Coordination Office

Plague Redwood – invite up to 42 additional Sorcerer players as the members of his rogue group of rebel Sorcerers.

Kestrel Lynx – invite up to 42 additional Werewolf players as the members of the Greenland Werewolf Clan.

Holly Nox – invite up to 42 additional Human players as the members of her rocket scientist team at NASA

    We were submersed in the story and my friends dressed up and played their roles spot on. Intriguing mystery, details were spot on, and all the extras helped to make this a memorable evening. I'd suggest doing all the challenges. I also suggest getting this boxed set, as it is worth it.
