The fog, always the fog. Without it, the city would still be a place like no other, but it would not be London. The sights, the smells, even the legends would not linger so without the thick, characteristic vapor to drift upon. Without the fog, the sound of chamber music would not carry as far as in Chelsea, nor would the consumptive coughs in Spitalfields alleys echo so in the night. The smell of perfumed hair entering or leaving Covent Garden Opera House wouldn't linger so in a fogless night, nor would the sulfurous smoke of cheap coal mix so piquantly with the smell of the open sewers in Whitechapel. So many contrasts here, seeming all the more pronounced at night. But what the night can amplify it can also mask: the bloodlust in a murderous eye, the arc of a keen scalpel, a surprised gasp savagely cut short. Day or night, this is a city of extremes and contrasts. This was the city of the Conqueror, the Lion-Heart, the Bard, the Virgin Queen... and now, the city of Jack the Ripper.

Hideous monstrosities are all around us, but they only come out when the sun is spent. They're like roaches - where there is one, there are hundreds; beneath you, in your walls, in the shadows, waiting for darkness to open their door. And like roaches, they are survivors - nuclear holocaust, ice ages, drought, and famine haven't wiped them out, and neither will The Spookhouse.
An ungodly evil inhabits the shadows. Werewolves, vampires, ghouls and flesh-eating zombies lurk in every darkened corner and under every unlit stairwell; their bloodlust sated only when preying on the innocent.
As an agent of The Spookhouse, a secret government agency that investigates the forces of darkness and evil, you have one purpose - to seek out and destroy these creatures. You hunt, as your vile quarry does, by night...

The six tubes sat side-by-side before an amorphous console of pressure slides and heat-contact buttons. The formo-glass, half misted, failed to totally hide the black, sealed containers within, lying still and at peace. Written on a plaque attached to a metallic support sheet above the tubes were the words "Project Awakening". An unnecessary announcement, Rex though, considering the meager audience who ever be around to appreciate it.
