While Cedar Falls has been deemed strange and unusual in its own right. The strangeness seemed to be a bit more commonplace three years, in 2012, before Actaeon Tech moved to the outskirts of town. Many of the townsfolk are convinced that most stories were nothing more than urban legends made by bored teenagers. In 2015 the town's newly elected Mayor Bryers began to aggressively pour time and energy in advertising the town lakes and nature walks to boost tourism. It wasn't long before Actaeon Tech got involved, donating money to Cedar Falls and offering sponsorships to various festivals. The town got used to seeing their name long before their facilities were finished in 2019. It was said that Acteon operated out of a small facility in Normont years before. Rumor has it, they were looking to expand operations right around 2015.
Around 2012 the "anomaly", as many involved refer to, occurred. Many people and mostly supernaturals found themselves suddenly thrust into Cedar Falls. No matter who or what, the stories of the anomaly are very similar. A portal opens to an unsuspecting traveler. When they step through they suddenly found themselves miles from their original home, in a house/apartment with all their stuff, in Cedar Falls. The oddest part is everyone seems to not notice their sudden arrival, it's as though they have always been there. Some folks even claim to see them as "just moving in last week". All those that experience this anomaly have something in common before the appearance of the portals... a want to escape from their current lives. But who can they really tell, in a world that doesn't believe the strange and unusual is real?
The truth of the matter is most strange and unusual things in the world exist and are likely your neighbor. Many supernaturals retreated to the small town of Cedar Falls (and many others) as a way to "live normal lives" among humans without any trouble.
From 2012 onward things began to get a bit more complicated. Rumors of hunters and experimentations of humans and supernaturals began to spread among various supernatural communities. Many of these rumors were connected to Actaeon who was believed to be a front for a global hunting organization in efforts were to keep the supernaturals in the shadows and to protect humanity. Hunters and those that strive to put supernaturals in their place have been around to play hero for just as long as supernaturals were labeled the villains.
It's no wonder Actaeon has had their eyes on Cedar Falls for so long ever since the recent reports of anomalies reached their ears. Though the recent break out of January 2019 has added some new players to the mix. Experiments and Hybrids who managed to escape from the labs of Actaeon, perhaps they might be willing to share their story (if they even were able to remember them).
The stage is set, are you none the wiser to the greater mysteries that walk the town? Have you found yourself flung into the middle Cedar Falls because of a wish to escape? Have you broken free from the torment and torture of Actaeon? Are you a supernatural who just wants peace or reason to cause chaos? Whoever you might be, you can ensure that your place is welcomed on this side of darkness.
