Some mysteries are begging to be solved.
Others will destroy those who try.
The Edge of Midnight is full of mysteries. Some hold the key to abilities that let you stop bullets in midair and ignite gas tanks with a wave of your hand. Others lead to the identity of a killer or a trail of dirty money. But whatever the mystery, there are men and women who simply can't let it be. Whether pursuing raw power or the cause of justice, warping reality or just keeping another bastard from getting away with it, they know how to uncover the truth. This book contains the source of their wisdom, from hard-bitten P.I.s to diligent cops to warlocks bending the laws of physics to their will. The answers are waiting; do you have the courage to ask the right questions?

About Exile Game Studio, LLC
Exile Games is based in Seattle, WA, where its founders came to reside following a series of calamitous and near-apocryphal events that don't really bear closer examination. Following a heated dispute over the hollow earth theory, they fashioned a crude set of dice from rocks and shells and set about creating new and innovative roleplaying games to pass the time. They were eventually rescued, and vowed to exact vengeance by sharing with fellow gamers all they'd created during their banishment. For more information, visit www.exilegames.com.
