July the fourteenth, 1883: Being rather rudely awakened after a night of drunken revelry; Half-Rats is thrust into a rather dire situation. Utter calamity has erupted in the streets outside of the general store which he calls home - calamity of the most unnatural and horrific kind, that is. Now he and the shop keeper, Mr. Trask, must hold out against this infernal host of creatures together. Will they survive the night?
Abandoned for a year - the former home of that late, eminent citizen who owned the stoveworks. Gas is still supplied to the home, though it has not been kept up in quite some time due to unbeknownst circumstances - though some wild rumors fly about town as to the truth behind the owner's death and why it has not been peopled or touched for a year's time.
