The age of man has ended, and an age of monsters has begun. Nobody really knows where they came from, but ever since they showed up twelve years ago, the most troubling matter has been how to kill them, before they kill us. Bullets and arrows bounce off of their hides without leaving so much as a scratch, and even weapons made from steel strong enough to cut them are corroded away to nothing by the caustic mana in their blood. But they’re not invincible. A couple of government-sponsored programs have been created to fight them, using their own weapons to turn the tide of war against them. You are one of these new “Slayers”, having joined the program and survived the training exercises, although only time will tell if you’ll show the same aptitude in the field.

Nope. I'm going more for storytelling than complicated mechanics here, so the only thing to know is that a D20 will be used to resolve actions.

Do I invent the perks and quirks myself?
Yep. So long as it's nothing horrendously overpowered, anything goes, provided you pay it off in quirks.

At the time of the age of monsters, Yukkuri hid back underground before resurfacing to find that the surface world was covered in monsters.

You were planning to have a 15 year old magical girl kill Witches by drinking them under the table!? It's original, at least.

With a low humming sound, the door to the train you're on slides open, revealing the world outside. You've stopped in front of what seems to be a large metal blister rising out of a treeless plain, although you recognize it from one of your lessons as the entrance to Fort Arundel, one of the last human population centers on the planet, and the main Slayer base in Europe. Several men and women in deep blue uniforms stand on top of the structure, and one of them, a tall man in his thirties with a head of shaggy brown hair quickly climbs down and hurries over to your group.

"Hey, how are you all doing? I'm Jacob Wendell, Siphon expert and your new squad leader, which means that I get half of your rations every meal. Well, that last bit's a joke, but for at least the next month or so, I'll be in charge of making sure that you six don't get yourselves killed. Now, it's been a while since my training days, but I remember that train ride from the academy taking the better part of a day, so how about we get inside and do introductions over supper to unwind a bit before I show you around and go over rules."

Kyle salutes. Then he nods while smiling. He didn't really like his team that much.
