It’s 1937. Nazi Germany is in ascendency, having consolidated power around Adolf Hitler, passed the noxious Nuremburg Laws in 1936 and re-militarized the Rhineland in 1965. The annexation of Austria is mere months away. Imperial Japan is at war, having invaded China and occupied Shanghai.
In America, the Depression rages on, with millions out of work despite President Roosevelt’s best efforts with the New Deal. The spectre of war in Europe has everyone on edge, though some — including hero Charles Lindbergh — speak highly of the Nazi regime.
The heroes are members of the Wardens, a loosely-knit secret society with offices in New York, London, San Francisco, and Hong Kong. It is an organization comprised of men and women of action — troubleshooters, adventurers, and mystics — who have sworn an oath to protect the innocent from threats both mundane and magical.
