The ''Dark Matter'' setting, also called ''Dark•Matter''[[note]]Following the pattern set by the [[TabletopGame/StarDrive Star*Drive]] setting using punctuation in the middle of its title.[[/note]], was first published in 1999 for TSR's ''TabletopGame/{{Alternity}}'' RPG, then recycled for its ''TabletopGame/D20Modern'' RPG. This is a world where [[ConspiracyKitchenSink every]] lunatic [[ConspiracyTheorist conspiracy theory]] is true. There really are [[TelepathicSpacemen psychic]] [[TheGreys grey aliens]] [[AlienAbduction abducting humans]] and [[AliensStealCattle mutilating cattle]]. [[TheIlluminati Illuminati type groups]] really are working to bring the entire world under their control. [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Bigfoot]]? He's out there too. And TheGovernment is [[GovernmentConspiracy covering it all up]]. The players are field agents for the shadowy private organization known as the Hoffman Institute, devoted to investigating the activities of psychics, cultists, and "xenoforms" and protecting humankind from the tide of dark matter seeping into the fabric of the universe that's the ultimate cause of all things paranormal.

* StrawFeminist: In the CDC, there's a group called the Gynarchy (the name really says it all). But if your interested what the Gynarchy is actually doing, they are looking to eliminate the need for sperm in the whole reproductive process because they think men are obsolete and once men are out of the equation, women can TakeOverTheWorld.

* UnitedNationsIsASuperPower: True to ConspiracyTheory lore the united nations United Nations is working to create a OneWorldOrder with a secret army flying around in {{Black Helicopter}}s. It also started to secretly settle ''the moon''. Untrue to conspiracy theory lore, some of the descriptions paint them as [[WellIntentionedExtremist Well Intentioned Extremists]] with good reasons ''why'' they want a OneWorldOrder and a rather sympathetic vision of what kind of a state it would be.
