Synopsis: A world of sci-fi and horror. Outer Darkness is set seven hundred years in the future, against the background of a war between humanity and a savage alien race. Mankind has mastered interstellar travel and colonized the galaxy. but during our travels into space, we’ve discovered a horrible truth. When a body dies, its spirit is cast into space, into the terrible, infinite “outer darkness”. Turns out, space is filled with spirits, ghosts, demons and all manner of necro-essences… that are lonely, scared, confused, corrupted, or just plain pissed! Demonic possession, hauntings, cosmic horror… all as commonplace on a Starship as extraterrestrial encounters and alien attacks. Outer space is terrifying.
