Night Wave is a “Modern Fantasy” setting but rather than being set in a point in time that is “now”, it’s set in the 1980’s. In that way it could probably be called “Retro Fantasy”. Within the setting all of the locations are roughly what we know in the real world and many of the stories will be set within the continental United States in various Metro Areas. The setting will reuse a few characters drawn from the “Codex Alkotas” setting redesigned for the setting until new setting specific characters begin to take form. Any borrowed characters will have their backstories tweaked in order to fit the overall story.

Night Wave will not reuse fantasy species from “Codex Alkotas” though and will try to make use of real world mythology to fill out the setting instead.
