Storm Shelter's World

Storm Shelter can be described as The Expendables or Hawaii Five-0 meets The X-Files. We like to say that Storm Shelter is set in a cinematic version of the real world or cinematic reality. This means that some elements of the organization and the world are slightly more fantastic than in actual reality. For instance, Storm Shelter will wind up involved in adventures that your average private security company might not encounter. We do allow some paranormal abilities on a very restricted basis (i.e. no superhumans). The majority of our stories will be basic action-adventure with an element of the fantastic or paranormal tossed in on occasion.

Game Date

The main story starts in January of 2017. There are also options for writing character backstories as well as other

The main Setting is the state of Montana, United States of America.
