Bear with me, dear reader. I want you to take a look around your home. Draw your eyes from the screen for a moment and really look. What if I revealed to you that everything you see is not the same. The furniture, you're computer, your books, and all other possessions have been replaced by a perfect copy while you were at work.

Take your time. Explore that possibility, and tremble at its implications. It wasnt a secret, I didn't hide it from you. Given the opportunity, I revealed it without hesitation. You haven't stepped through the looking glass to a secret world of terror and monsters, you have turned from the cave wall to see the world for what it truely is. It's like the universe has shifted an inch to the left, and you're one of the few who noticed it. Welcome to The Web. There are monsters here, many seeking to consume those who don't even know they exist.

  The Web is a modern horror setting for fiction and table top roleplaying. It is not a world of secrets, merely a world some understand more than others. Those in the know stand united against the darkness. It terrifies them. Their stories are tragic, sometimes horrifying, and often wonderous. Be cautious. The Web has a depth that never ends. The more one connects the dots, the deeper into its byzantine structure one goes, and it's not meant that we should voyage far...



 

Listen, I don't know you. You don't know me. Just hear me on this. Don't ask, don't even think about it. If you need help to forget, see your doctor for some meds or just self medicate. Try the uppers first, then the downers. If all else fails just drink. A lantern has been lit in that brain of yours, and its best to keep it dim. The brighter it is, the more its light will reveal and if that doesn't scare you consider this: That light... that beacon... It doesn't just remind you why you feared the dark as a child.
By casting its light on what lurks in the shadows, you may forget that you are the source of that light... the beacon reveals you too...
