The long march to freedom begins here. The world’s attention is drawn to the Americas as the stirrings of revolution begin. As both sides draw up their plans of war, other forces lurk in the shadows, far more sinister than any could imagine, prowling massive forests and forgotten tunnels, with too few heroes to combat them. An ancient enemy sows seeds of strife, and a much larger battle than is about to begin, one for the very soul of the world, is about to begin. While Colonists cry for freedom and Loyalists struggle to reconcile with England, dark enemies gnaw and plague the unsuspecting. In Boston, the siege grinds on, but the end is in sight. The time is coming to break the yoke of tyranny on the city that sparked the revolution. Secret plots, sinister cults, and occult mysteries abound as you explore the city of Boston during the last days of the siege. You are there at the start of the American Revolution, caught up in a series of events that will take you from one end of the city to the other.
Victory in Boston, however, is short-lived. Spring, 1776. The Second Continental Congress works at creating a new nation. But as they debate, shadowy forces prepare to strike. Welcome to Philadelphia. William Penn's model city is one of the richest in the Thirteen Colonies, and stands at the heart of the Revolution. Home to book shops, thinkers, and a growing intellectual class, the city hides those with knowledge of a more questionable nature. With the leadership of the Revolution quartered here, the city is awash with plots, intrigues, and innumerable dangers meet – and it is far from certain whose plans will succeed. As Congress works, the Heroes scour the City of Brotherly Love for a friend's missing son. Not all is as it appears, and soon their simple quest turns into a race against time to prevent a tragedy that could kill the movement of American independence before it has truly begun.
