Overview
The Shadow follows you.

Within the light in the darkness, inside the black of the soul, and through the pain of existence is the Phantom ... at least, that's what people say. Ghost stories like that can't be worse than the reality of many unexplained murders five years ago, though. But, there are some that can see past the stories to the truth. Some can see things that are not the truth yet still not a lie. There are also some who see the weak and hopeless only as prey. Indeed, the capable people are those who tread life without falling into its many traps. They are the surivivors.

But now, the world is changing, the sky is on fire, and people are once again disappearing. And, there are stories of something not quite human stalking in the night. Perhaps something both malevolent and omnipresent. Boogiepop ..?

For in this world, everything exists. Anything can happen at any time ... and everything does happen all the time.
