Harrowed World is a 'grimgothic' setting combining gothic trappings and aesthetics with a grim dystopian atmosphere. This world is much like the one we know; the same countries exist and the same sorts of people live here but there is more below the surface. Supernatural creatures and monolithic secret societies puppeteer from the shadows while megacorporations dominate the light. Vampires and magical folk, among others, covertly fight amongst themselves and with each other for influence over the mostly clueless human masses. Technological advancement only sees them tighten their hold. To match this setting, protagonists of Harrowed World stories are not morally superior heroes but flawed and often morally grey people who are usually not entirely human.
Alex Burton is a computing graduate from the North West of England (UK). Having finished university (those unfamiliar with the British education system should note that college and university are separate, and there is no middle school). he spent some time volunteering at two primary schools in his local area. Having received support in both primary and secondary school he wanted to give something back as it were.
Of note is how peculiar he finds it to refer to himself in the third person.
