I lost Miko during the Kuro incident. She was driving
when the light from the missile exploded over Tokyo. It must have blinded her
because her car was found wrapped around a tree, her body covered in petals
fallen through the broken window.
When I found a message from her on my phone I thought it
was just an old one I hadn't erased. I kept it, playing it back just to hear
her voice. It helped, just a bit, to have a few moments when I could pretend
that she was still alive. But more messages starting appearing on my phone. Now
I just want them to stop.
Because the girl who keeps sending them isn't Miko, and
she won't stop screaming.
The year is 2046, and something dark has returned to
Japan. With an international blockade set up around the beleaguered
country following the Kuro Incident, there is no escape. In addition to the
meteorological side-effects of the Incident, some people have noticed a
sharp rise in disturbing, mysterious and supernatural occurrences. The
authorities refuse to acknowledge such obvious sensationalist delusions. Do
you have the strength to face the nightmares?
Kuro is the core rulebook of a new near-future game
setting influenced by unremitting Japanese horror. Dare you stare into the
The Kuro Incident - Miracle or Curse? Only time will tell
how history will remember the events of 4th May 2046. The accidental
launch of a Panasiatic Federation nuke at Japan would have devastated the
country, but we were saved from this fate when the missile vanished seconds
before impact. But saved by what? The violent winds and electromagnetic
storm which followed offer clues to the event that science has yet to
decipher. Some people have reverted to ancient superstition to explain what
happened, muttering about spirits and the 'Wind of the Gods'. But such is always
the case in times like these, especially as the consequences of the blockade
grow more severe. Personally, I'm sure that we'll find a diplomatic
solution before the year is out and, at the very least, not being nuked
will always seem like the better option!
