Eldritch horrors from alternate dimensions are opening portals into our plane of existence for reasons unknown. It is up to you and your band of friends to close them. Fend off otherworldly beasts, gather clues, and perform the ritual. But be warned, the madness may lead to a member of your team to turn traitorous. The world rests in your hands. Complete the ritual, before its too late!
