The tunnels and passageways under London (made up mostly of the London Underground train/subway network) recently experienced a mysterious explosion. The government line is that a dirty bomb was detonated in one of the deeper passages of the Underground, but reliable information is sparse and conspiracy theories abound.
The Underground (Open Area)
The London tube network. Crowded with people in a rush to be somewhere else. These days there are more than a few cops, keeping people away from the unsafe areas. The tube is haunted by ghosts of those sheltering form the blitz above.
Primary Aspect: Rush Hour
Other Aspects: Eerie Tunnels, Mind the Gap, Impatience & Paranoia
Faces: Man About London, Dwayne Stevens, [ghosts and commuters]
The Underground (Restricted Area)
The network of tube tunnels, sewers and passages under London, specifically the areas seeing restricted use since the ‘bomb’. They are a nexus of forgotten secrets, dark passages and mysterious rooms, now colonised by strange creatures. Beshilu gnaw and swarm in numbers, cults chant, and malefic beings just beyond reality stir. A modern underdark. Ghosts of those sheltering from the Blitz above haunt the twlight, brushing shoulders with the shades of those killed during recent events. The shadow is a place of darkness, malevolence, fear and whispers.
The draughty tunnels are hard to navigate (special maps help with this), and getting to these sections at all requires slipping past (admittedly poor) security.
Aspect: Labyrinth Under London
Other Aspects: There’s Something Down Here…, Rats!, The Walls are Breaking, Dark Whispers,
Faces: The Preacher, the alpha of the Big Issue pack, Entity under London
