Age of Heroes: The Gods That Walk Among Men

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

- Ephesians 6:12

The Year is 2007. An age punctuated by the loss of innocence.  Recent events on the world stage, have made the world a more dangerous place.  War, Plague, Famine and Death stalk the Earth again.
The wages of our sins writ large; a proverbial slice of hell, caught in the digital Möbius of the 24 Hour Cable News Network.

For most people, it is a time of fear and upheaval. In a Post 9/11 World, fear of foreigners; or worse, domestic terror cells, have replaced The Red Menace. Beset by invisible enemies, the United States finds itself in two major wars on foreign soil; one for revenge, and one for profit.

While the global community faces its latest existential threat, the veil between worlds has grown thin.  A devastating war in the lands of Fae, has come to an uneasy armistice.  Refugees from both sides, and those unaligned, have fled to other realms, including earth.

While alliances shift, and the Governments of the world scrutinize their citizens, in the name of safety, they turn to drastic measures. Malevolent forces; once commonplace in the ages before literacy and reason, and those thought long dormant, once again stalk the night. They prey on the naivety, and ego-centrism of human society.
Now in the face of mutually assured destruction, will they lend their strength and skills to the tasks at hand?  Or will Humankind stand alone?

The United States Government is assembling a team of highly trained specialists, to push back against the darkness.  Their mandate is to maintain the illusion of humanity's global dominance, and to mitigate the threats of Supernatural Evil.
