Worterburgh, the campaign that is, was originally a Doublecross game modified for an urban fantasy setting. This Shard takes several elements from the Doublecross Roleplaying Game and connect them back to the greater Worterburgh Universe.
Currently, only a single sliver compose this shard. However, given how different it is from anything else, it can be considered its own Shard. Once, this world might have been a fairly average low-supernatural world with a fairly standard history. That, however, has all changed with the emergence of the so-called Renegade Virus, which is an exceedingly inaccurate name given it is a supernatural infection and not biological pathogen. Most of the world population (as well as some animal species) are infected by this ‘corruption’ of sort and when the conditions are right they manifest powers. Often violently. Those affected by the Renegade Virus are prone to a mental and physical degeneration at a rate which would take often decades to metastasize in other shards. The resulting loss of sanity can transform them into monsters.
Other, more ‘normal’ supernaturals have existed and still exist in this shard, but most of the attention is focused on these super powered humans right now.
