The roaring twenties was an age of gold and prosperity. A time where great evil still walked the land, hidden in the shadows of the night and the dark recesses of man’s heart.
The spring after the last war, people hungered for unheard of prosperity and riches. But that which moves man moves other, more evil things.
Fear not, for the Magdalene Order seeks out these evil thrill seekers, putting an end to their belligerence and greed.
Most skilled at this art, Sister Rosette and her contract bound assistant Chrono exorcise and dispose of these monsters, leaving nothing but wrecked cars and destroyed buildings in their wake.
