from the introduction:
The purpose of this game is two-fold. One, it is designed to provide souls, thoughts, minds, back story, mythos, some antagonists and defined rules systems for the one major supernatural group that has not yet received an official “Monster: the Noun” game line. It is not “Risen: Second Edition.” These people are not the Crow. The Zombies in this game are unmistakable for anything other both the traditional voodoo Zombies and the cannibalistic Zombies from those infamous George Romero films.
The second purpose of the game is for it to be played. A game is useless if you don’t play and have fun. To this end, parts of the game are designed to be “modular,” or easily altered and modified to suit your group’s needs and desires. Basically, it’s intended to make implementing White Wolf’s Golden Rule a bit simpler.
