From the creator of Through Broken Lenses and Daemoniucus Altor comes a story of hope, loss, sacrifice, violence, protection, a search for meaning and control, and blood.
You are a gravekeeper working by yourself at the cemetery that’s been in your family for as far back your family tree and you can trace. Orphaned at a young age, you take the responsibility of maintaining the graveyard in the small town of St. Anne in the American Midwest.
At the same time, through a good use of life insurance unlocked after your 21st birthday a few years ago, you have used your chance to pursue your higher education in the local Clear Lake College. Perhaps in the hopes of moving up in the world, elevating your small local cemetery, or just because.
However, all is not well in this small Midwestern town. Frequent attacks by strange, violent creatures in the dead of night have left many citizens worried for their lives, and many others in grotesque and bloody half-eaten piles that barely resemble their former selves. Meanwhile, you have the other job passed on to you by your family tree. To serve as the first, last, and only line of defense between the innocents in your town and these monstrous creatures that feed off of humans.
Harness your rage to strike out against the injustice of being hunted, or sharpen your mind into a dagger to cut cleanly through the threat. Hold onto your humanity and connect with those around you at the risk of placing them in danger, or push them away and become the lone sword in order to protect those that you are sworn to.
The choice is yours.
Uploaded chapter 2 (Well, most of it. Like 90% of it. Last scene needs to be finished but I feel like this already had a pretty good cut-off moment).
Added a new character, introduced in chapter 1
Re-did the brutality/precision system to make each their own independent stat. Easier to keep track of. Might require some tweaking in the future.
