Although Dr Alphonse Moreau perished on Noble’s Isle sometime in late 1887, his work did not. In 1891, an expedition was sent by the British government to salvage what they could and return any papers or specimens that were still alive. Although the expedition was publicly reported as a failure, it did succeed in bringing back enough information for scientists to replicate Dr Moreau’s work – the surgical hybridisation of Man and Beast.
A small laboratory was established somewhere in the bucolic conutryside of England. The scientists at the laboratory successully reproduced all of Moreau’s techniques and added page after page to their new bestiary. The new creations were studied, both physically and mentally, to see what use they could be in the new century.
The players are hybrids created for experimentation. Do they try and prove themselves useful to their masters, or do they find freedom?
