When is a city actually two cities? When it is New Dunhaven, the Dusk City. The sprawling metropolis might seem like a single ever-growing urban area, but two cities occupy the space: the city inhabited by the law-abiding citizens of New Dunhaven, and the shadowy world of the criminal cartels that exists just under the surface of lawful society.
New Dunhaven's size and the density of its population sustain thousands of stories taking place at once. Careers on the rise, tragic falls from grace, political and religious strife, and fortunes won and lost all touch the lives of individuals and groups at every moment.
That's more than enough to occupy the everyday lives of law-abiding citizens. But beyond the mundane stories, just out of sight and hidden by a veil of deception and cunning, lies a vast criminal underworld. This city within the city consists of the Right Kind of People - those who blithely break the law for power and profit. Seemingly legitimate businesses serve as facades for cartel operations, and numerous supposedly upstanding citizens operate as agents of the cartels, living innocent public lives but secretly engaging in criminal deeds.
Your job is to steal a precious gem, in renaissance Venice.
Will you make your cartel proud or will you die trying?
