It combines Lovecraftian eldritch horror with Anime mecha and cthulhuteh, according to some of the lore and sample adventures sensibilities set in the grimdark future of the late 21st Century, complete with a total war on all fronts that would give Creed a chubby.
It’s surprising no video games are made about it, probably cus a lot of the magical realm stuff would have to be discarded. Early in the 21st-century woman by the name of Teresa Ashcroft discovered arcanotechnology, the science behind magic. The discovery revolutionized the world and sent her mad. Her colleague Simon Yi continued her research, laying the groundwork for the Dimensional Engine, a clean and inexhaustible power source.
He was also driven mad. The research was taken over by one Doctor Golvash Czeny, who assembled a team and let people work on minute parts of the D-Engine project.

While the staff suffered psychotic attacks, nervous breakdowns, frequent nightmares and other such unpleasantries, they were not driven mad, which was a good thing for everyone involved.
Eleven years after Teresa Ashcroft began her research, the first arcanotech-powered D-Engine went public. After three months of trying everything, the global scientific community was forced to admit that the things were legit.
With the limitless power of the D-Engine, it became possible to build anti-gravity pod systems, or A-Pods, with which vehicles could fly. D-Engines could also power mecha, allow for better space travel and gave the power required to build underwater research and food-growing bases. It was a pretty swell time to be alive, as long as you didn’t live in enemie Middle East who had their economies go to shit because nobody bought oil anymore and resented the growing power of the UN, so they decided to side with China who had not joined the UN and its growing power and another Cold War started.
Things tensed up and a global Jihad was an ever-growing threat. The Migou were an alien race living on the outskirts of our solar system. Looking like a mix of flies, crustaceans and Illithidthey saw humanity as a threat to their colony on Pluto. To do this they engineered a race in our image called the Nazzadi who looked like Drow with seriously cool tribal tattooswho are mostly unaware of their artificial nature and roots.
Believing they were Earth exiles they fought humanity for 6 years, killing untold numbers of people until their leaders who knew the truth of things from ctthulhutech beginning ancidnt it quits and made their knowledge of the Migou and their status as cloned lifeforms known to both their soldiers and humanity.
Acnient of the Nazzadi turned on the remainder loyalists and drove the Migou-aligned forces out. They made peace, joined Earth as allies against Migou, were given Haiti and Cuba to form their own nation and to make them easier to fight if they somehow turned on humanity again and joined their forces, tactics, and mecha with that of humanity.
After the ctuhlhutech of the Nazzadi, the Migou throw a hissy fit decided to wage their war themselves. Putting all of their race to a fuckhuge ship the size of the Moon, they landed on Earth en masse.
And so the second Arcanotech War began. The Migou, seeing the threat of the cults, also worked against them. Meanwhile, a less obvious war had been going on. Cultists that had been in the shadows of humanity since the discovery of fire saw the advent of arcanotechnology as a sign that it was a time to revive their dead gods.
The Chrysalis Corporation, innocent at first, corrupted afterward by Nyarlahothep himself, worked to undermine the New Earth Government and other cults worked to corrupt humanity through vice.
Now with the cults becoming more and more blatant in their actions and the Migou becoming more aggressive in an effort to stop them, the New Earth Government has realized that the war was evolving into something new and so declared the Arcanotech War to have ended and the Aeon War to have begun. Yup, everybody is an enemy. A second Migou hiveship was on its way, but Human-Nazzadi remnants of the colonies hiding in the Oort Cloud laid down the law on the Migou’s Pluto base, forcing the hive ship to return.
The system uses d10s and success is based on either the single highest dice rolled or the sum of the highest sum of multiples of dice rolled or the sum of the highest straight of dice rolled e. The system is notoriously swingy. A script has been created to show the distribution of rolls.
Its researchers determined that by using it they could transform a human into a Tager, a being of great power that does not suffer the madness of the lesser Dhohanoids.

Training would need to be intense and unforgiving, but the end product would be a powerful soldier for the cause indeed. However, some of the researchers working on the project realized that maybe summoning the Great Old Ones to the world might not be the best idea, so they defected and stole or destroyed all research the Company had. Of the twelve that did this only three survived to found the Eldritch Society.
They would dedicate themselves and the sacred warriors that are the Tagers to fighting the Chrysalis Corporation and its allies wherever they can. Basically Furries and Otherkin plus several tons of Grimdark up the wazoo – or, if you’re at all familiar with anime, basically an entire PC race made out Guyvers.

There are 10 enemied types of Tagers, some more common than the others. As mentioned before, about 0. Tagers are affected by their symbiont: Efreet become proud and righteous, Spectres are aloof and resolute, Echoes are predatory and love to chew on hard things and so on.
To undergo metamorphosis a Tager has to play to these character traits, even more, often going out of their way to act in a way where another action would be preferable. In their new form, Tagers are mostly their old one cranked up to 11, but they often gain one or two new inherent abilities.
All Tagers have something called a Limit Weapon: Tagers experience a boost to their abilities both in mortal and Tager form, with the latter being far more potent.
They also gain new senses, tougher forms that also regenerate, immunity to gas attacks, are linked so that they can tell that there’s one of them within a 1 mile radius, have microhooks on their hands and feet allowing them to scale sheer surfaces and can figure out if someone’s a Dhohanoid by observing them closely for a minute.
Tagers do lose some of their Orgone: Mirages and Shadows have abilities that run on Orgone, but this merely drains their ability to use or help with magic and can be kept on indefinitely.
Variants within the same type of Tager exist. Anywhere from five to seven different weapon types have been observed between the various types of Tager, and all are upgraded when a Tager undergoes metamorphosis, becoming more deadly as well.
