The origins of Gotham City are some shrouded in mystery. Many millenniums ago, an evil warlock was buried alive beneath what would one day become the central island of Gotham. It is alleged that while the warlock laid in a state of torpor, his evil essence seeped into the soil, poisoning the ground with his dark, corrupt touch.
That wizards touch surpassed the tests of time. Over the years, filling citizens with paranoia and running the city over with crime. The wizards existence was forgotten, but not without consequence. With crime at an all time high, Gotham birthed vigilantes as a sort of beacon of hope for the every day civilian with the misfortune of calling it home.
The heroes are unaware that the multiverse is about to become home to even more misplaced individuals. A world can only hold so much old magic before it begins to crack at the seams and things from other dimensions seep through.
The misplaced individuals arrive in many different ways with only whatever was on their person thanks to a fracture in the very structure of the fabrics of the multiverse. The old wizard's magic touched even the visitors. A fraction of memories scattered and lost upon arrival. Several paths lie in front of you, will you aid in the heroes plight in attempt to repair the world around you? Will you make a new life for yourself? Or will you fall to the side of madness with the people who thrive in shadows. The choice is yours.
