Every Year since the dawn of civilisation, the same gatherings and rituals happen again and again. Before deep winter begins, the longest and darkest night is celebrated. It varies across cultures and places, but in the World of The Entity, it really means only one thing: the longer the night, the more sacrifices. Some things just never change. What does change, sometimes, is the setting in which they happen. The Entity has decided to make the repeated last hours of its victims a cold-blooded Killing Festival. Winter colours, decorated Hooks, Firecrackers, Gifts and Achievements.

Welcome to the Winter Fog!
