Cracks in the Facade
The century is coming to an end, and the empire is still standing strong. However, small cracks has begun to manifest in its foundation.
The age of the freethinker is approaching, and influences from the four corners of the world are arriving at great speed at the London Docks. The uncomfortable londonite is seeking his tranquility in a Limehouse opium cellar, while his precious society is threatened by oriental hedonism and the free spirited americans.
Some people however, are adapting quite nicely and allows themselves to keep an open mind while staying true to the british customs and civil behaviour. The open minds will in time stand as a firm contrast to the age of reason. However, they are attracting the attention of suppressed knowledge and forgotten stories from our darkest past.
Some stories are so old, that they will imprinted their meanings upon society over and over again. The freethinker is a gateway for old stories and deep knowledge, and he has just started to read them out loud.
Old stories, who are cracks in the facade of the British empire.
And a story has always more to it,
just as there are many names for God.
Which one is yours?
