It was just past midnight when the call came in, a regular occurrence on the "bone shift". Established nearly a year after the collapse, Strike Team Antares is a small group of 30 individuals - the elite. Those few who could both survive the horrors of the eternal night, and lead others to safety. Each one of you has been through hell, and survived. But not just survived - acted as a light in the darkness for those who might follow. Dispatched in small groups known as "talons" you venture into the dark places and retrieve that which was lost.
