SXPD: The Rookie is a collaboration between Mighten Ink, Little Chicken Game Company and commissioned by OneBigGame.
Welcome To New Royale Somewhere in North America, there is a lawless hidden 52nd state known as 'New Royale'. The entire state exists outside the conventional authority of the United States government and is privately owned by the richest man in America, the reclusive Mephistopheles van Gold. Its skyline punctuated by the colossal and iconic Tower of Archon, New Royale is the American Sodom and Gomorrah; the place where you can get anything, and do anything you want…as long as you can pay the price! To maintain its unconventional sense of law and order, New Royale is governed by an edict commonly referred to as Mephistopheles’ law. And those laws are enforced by an extraordinary, all female police force; the SXPD.
In the state where crime is legal, there are still outlaws, and all outlaws must be brought to justice.
For centuries, women in black uniforms, identified only by a unique number, have protected the state of New Royale from its enemies and preserved its unconventional laws.
Armed with the Super Veloce device (SV) nicknamed ‘the juice’; a powerful neurological and biological stimulant that alters perception, enhances physical skills and abilities, the women in black have proved themselves a force to be reckoned with.
Governed by Mephistopheles van Gold’s right hand, the ominous mistress Diabolika, commanded by enigmatic and strict Dominas, the officers of New Royale maintain Mephistopheles’ law by exacting swift and often brutal justice.
They have no name, no knowledge of their past, no future, no love, and no desire; these women live to serve and protect Mephistopheles’ law. They are...
For as long as New Royale can remember, many have sought to bring an end to Mephistopheles van Gold’s empire, but none have proved more divisive than the Secret Order of the Black Seraphim.
A deeply religious terrorist organization whose leaders resemble wretched versions of the comic book super hero, the Secret Order rule New Royale’s criminal underworld in the name of a sinister deity known only as ‘Her Infernal Majesty’.
Led for hundreds of years by an unholy trinity, armed with cutting edge weapons and technology, the Order has raged unholy war against New Royale and its populace. They believe ‘Her Infernal Majesty’ will be born in the fires of New Royale and she will bring about the end of man and the purification of the world.
"...As the evil one’s city is devoured by Hell’s flame, its deviant shall be justly consumed in rivers of molten lava, fire and brimstone.
Witness the rise of Her Infernal Majesty! Witness the end of the old and the beginning of the new!" From the Order’s Burning Book
Black metal artist ‘Samael’ had an epiphany after reading the Order’s sacred ‘Burning Book’. The occult obsessed rock musician formed a motorcycle cult of end of day warriors, and retreated underground, waiting for the day they will be called into action by the Secret Order of the Black Seraphim. Every member of the Black Sons of Samael swore an oath to stand against Mephistopheles van Gold and the enforcers of his law, but as one young SXPD officer discovered, at least one Son of Samael may not be what he seems...
Legend has it a dark spirit masquerading as a woman lurks amongst the members of the Secret Order of the Black Seraphim. Going by the name ‘Doctor Obeah, the spirit is served by lesser entities possessing man-size rag dolls, bound only by a word written on the head. Unusually styled masks or helmets conceal the word, and the designs often influence the spirits’ personality. These dolls are fiercely loyal to Doctor Obeah, and those she instructs them to serve. They are strange, they are many, they are the Obeah Dolls...
According to ‘The Burning Book’:
“...A torturer, an executioner, a vengeful one and a destroyer will seal the fate of the evil one.” Wealthy quadruplet sisters obsessed with spiritualism claimed to be the living vessels of torture, execution, vengeance and destruction, each dedicated their life to ‘Her Infernal Majesty’ and the Burning Book’s prophecies. Trained in the art of war, equipped with a deadly arsenal and identified by an abstract skull graphic on their obscenely muscular torso, the four sisters became militaristic extremists. Self styled ‘soldiers of the apocalypse’ obsessed with their role in the Order of the Black Seraphim’s holy war. Often served by Doctor Obeah’s ‘Obeah Dolls’, Destruction; The Destroyer, an expert of weapons and explosives, is the youngest of the four, and the one many claim to be the calming influence over the sisters, and the one keeping the lid on Pandora’s Box. The unholy trinity knows that without Destruction, her sisters would be uncontrollable...
