In 1654 Cromwell era Britain, witch-accusing traditions are at their high. But this was all to end as a pumpkin-shaped meteorite wrecking Britain into a barren wasteland. This was more than a meteorite, it gave off toxic "Neurowaves" to attract the worlds scariest and toughest fighters to the almost-apocalyptic wasteland to fight to the death under influence of the foreign anti-Pagan Halloween fighting tradition. The curse is set as the combatants have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide on Halloween Night.
