FAE5 of 51 of 1

The year is 1861 and super powered people were revealed to the world last year when a group of super powered individuals devastated both the north and the south armies (and the surround land for hundreds of miles) so badly it forced the USA and CSA to declare a truce before another wasteland was created. In the wake of failed unification, Texas, The American Indians, and China all decided to stake a claim on part of western America. All of this results in continental America being broken into multiple regions, all trying to hold their own.

As one of the people who has super powers, do you now show your true nature? Do you keep it hidden? And finally, do you try to help mankind or leave them to their fate?

The Investigators must uncover the mystery that has killed many and doomed others in the tiny village while struggling to keep their lives and the last vestiges of their sanity intact.
