1950 in Vienna. It’s the dawn of the Cold War. The wounds of the Second World War are still fresh, and the city is divided. Control is shared by the victorious Allies, but the influence of the Nazis still lingers in the back alleys and the corridors of power.
In Checkpoint Midnight , the players will take on the role of espionage agents engaged in the Great Game between the occupying powers: France, England, the USSR, and the USA. But they’re not just any agents . They’ve all been touched by the strange, the uncanny, the supernatural . They’ll use their fantastic and terrifying abilities to navigate the treacherous political forces of their new home, and perhaps even prosper there.
