Kult is a contemporary fiction universe, set in the world of large, dark, industrial cities. It is a world where human wickedness is mingled with terrors from other parts of a true, unseen reality. Under the surface, primitive passions still held at bay by the morality of past civilizations grow and fester until they erupt in sick perversions. Occult teachings can be used to establish openings into different worlds, and tap power from the unknown. But few if any humans know anything about the powers they conjure up. Sooner or later, they are all consumed by demons they cannot control.
