It was the summer of 2012. It was said to be one of the hottest summers in the past 60 years. July 4th was coming up and the whole nation was prepping to celebrate the time of year where they were liberated. Heh, it's kinda funny. Not alot of people were free then. Most don't realize it. People are now kinda soulless husks. Whether stuck in a dead-end job, with the wrong partner or whatever thing, people seem to be bound and content in this sad system. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer and it seems like everything is set up perfectly so that people don't give a damn.
My father told me we were put on this earth to be happy. And I'm a believer of that. I mean, we all take responsibility for our actions and sometimes bad things happen. But this... something about this isn't right. The whole idea of some sort of secret organization behind this sort of thing seemed silly... yet, there was something odd about all this. However, all great schemes came to an end... Nature had a way of introducing fun surprises in our lives.
My name... I'll tell you that later...

Welcome to World Hidden In Shadows! A tribute to those secret government conspiracies and fringe science stories all through a neo-noir styled story. We will all have our roles. However, to those who don't know
Film noir- a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. TVTropes has a term on it, but it's the classic styled pessimistic world with hard-boiled anti-heroes, femme fatales and thoughts over morals and existentialism.
Here, everyone will have their role and such. I will help everyone out on their role, but let's try and keep it diverse. Like, if you're gonna be part of the force, we won't have many cops (probably 2 as a pre-existing team). We'll have many roles like the Detective, the Conspiracy Theorist, the Femme Fatale, the Dragon Lady, the Cop(s), and so on and so forth.
This is taking place in the modern times and will start out in New York City, but will start going over the country. We'll be going into some stuff regarding the government, the CIA and foreign affairs, so this will be fun. What starts out as a simple case unfolds into a massive conspiracy regarding fringe sciences and new world orders and such.
