In Penumbral Shadows, the players are members of Firewall, a secret organization dedicated to protecting the scattered remnants of transhumanity from threats that could wipe it out once and for all. Firewall is an organization outside of the spectrum of governments, funded by private individuals and organizations that recognize the threat to the collective existence, even if the normal human organizations are too occupied with obtaining power to recognize how close we came to extinction in the Fall.
For more information about what your players would know, peruse the table of contents below. Keep in mind when doing so, this brief was given to you by your Firewall cell, and its biases are informed by that source. What you read may be tinged by that fact.
