New Home, the Capital of the Underground, has become a demilitarized war zone, lightless and echoing with the cries of the savage, mindless beasts that run its roads in search of food. Blood, gore, dust, and blockades choke the streets, the windows of the empty homes staring like corpses. The city reeks of death, the air heavy with rot, ruin, and decay, and looming over the war-torn city, the palace stands dark and cold, draped with vines the thickness of school buses.

Lesser monsters run in packs through the city, and common monsters, such as Burgerpants and Bratty, battle to feed themselves and hold their places of power.
