The world has entered a new age. The age of pleasant rural life has given way to a shining future of industry and mechanism. Gone is the backbreaking labour in the fields, to be replaced with indoor jobs away from the variances of weather. New institutions of medicine and education are being founded all over the world, leading to new, healthier prospects and living conditions.
But with this bold, new world comes are darker aspect; those who want to dominate the world and turn life into a living hell. To deal with those, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (LoEG) was created, a collection of dedicated men and women, determined to snuff out the Forces of Evil (FoE) and create a kind and generous world for all.
