You are a member of the Final Defense League (FDL). The FDL was created in response to certain rumors, stories and events of the 1920’s. Many of these events were recorded by the historian H.P. Lovecraft. Lovecraft’s faithfulness to the facts are believed to have lead directly to his death at the young age of 42.

These events – beginning with the rising and sinking of the city of R’lyeh in the South Pacific and culminating in the destruction of Innsmouth, Mass. – prompted the United States Government to create the Final Defense League. The Final Defense League was tasked to find threats believed to be connected with the Old Ones.

In the 1980’s the FDL formally separated itself from the US Government chain of command. It was determined by high ranking members of the FDL that they could fulfill their mission of finding and destroy threats to the US people without questions from military or federal agencies. Instead, agents within the government filter funds to off-shore bank accounts, drug cartels, casinos and other easy to use money laundering agencies. Occasionally, these agents will also pass along rumors and leads to FDL cells.

The FDL now works in small cells. Each cell has the latitude to do the work as they see fit. Secrecy is paramount; both the secret work of the FDL and the secret knowledge of the “Cthulhu Mythos”.
