The setting is this: On March 6, 2000, the entire planet was shrouded in unnatural darkness for three days. This was due to The Nightlords, a secret cabal of supernatural beings from another dimension, and their shapeshifting minions, who then quietly seized control of the world's governments and corporate powers. It was also during this darkness that thousands of people learned that they had become inhuman monsters. These shapechanging beings are called the Nightbane, for it was at night that they become monsters. It is now up to the Nightbane to save the Earth from the Nightlords with the rest of humanity unaware of their secret war.

* BodyHorror: The Stigmata Table has plenty of stomach-churning possibilities for a Nightbane's Morphus. Issue #1 of The Rifter included the Gross Stigmata Table for those who thought the regular Stigmata Table wasn't gross enough.
