Menschenjaeger is the story of a young woman named Sharkie. She lives in the sunless, perpetually-dark dystopia of Savlop-2, makes her home in a repurposed shipping container, and is saving up to buy tools and become a mechanic. She also happens to be seven feet tall and strong enough to do a passable impression of a forklift.
One day, an attempt to make a bit of extra cash goes wrong and she loses her job. She makes a few rash decisions and is faced with an ultimatum: live the rest of her short life in fear of assassins, or join one of her slum’s most powerful gangs as a soldier and hitman. She chooses the latter, and must now try to make her way in Savlop-2’s brutal criminal underworld with nothing but a diamond-edged powersaw and her own baser instincts.

Klause Schuar, the Grand Bastard who destroyed the world in his pursuit of magical power, believed to be a only legend by some, is a memory and a horror of the distance past. Though seven-hundred years after the Age of Darkness, the world is birthing itself anew—the roads have opened and the festering plague that extinguished entire nations is no more. Now the newly formed guilds are active. Where monster hunting and dungeon diving are lucrative trades, long dead kingdoms are being rebuilt in this glorious age of rediscovery—The Age of Readventure!
