The Story of TheBoanthropic and The Society
The Society is a hedonistic cult that lives in a compound somewhere in the Los Angeles. Led by a mysterious man known only as the Founder, this leader is rumored to possess incredible powers, including teleportation, inter-dimensional travel, and some form of immortality. Though the Society espouses love and spiritual oneness, there is a darker side to their activities lurking just beneath the surface.
One of the members of the Society, a young woman named Mary, is pregnant. It is rumored that the Founder plans to use the baby to enact a ritual related to the story of the Moonchild, a myth of dark magic and the antichrist. To prevent this, a Resistance cell has formed within the Society.
However, another force is at play that also wishes to stymie the Founder’s plot: TheBoanthropic. TheBoanthropic are entities of pure energy manifested from the intense trauma experienced by people who endure severe, dehumanizing emotional abuse and manipulation that strips them of their memory, will, and identity. They are ethereal beings that have come to earth to intercede and guide a group of willing humans (who they refer to as Pilgrims) towards the goal of preventing more pain and suffering at the hands of people like the Founder.
As Mary’s due date fast approaches, the Pilgrims must to continue to aid the Resistance by rising through the ranks of the Society as all sides wait for TheBoanthropic spirits’ return to earth.
