The MH&L Game is named for the McCreasy, Hannah and Leahy Engineering firm - Founded in the 1960s by three engineers and army veterans.
This world is Earth in 2012 (When the Game Stats) - it is a world of suspense and espionage action.
The PCs are "security" personnel hired by MH&L to provide security for MH&L Facilities and operations. They are functionally corporate mercenaries, although their mission profiles vary dramatically depending on what MH&L Needs.
There is a rumor that MH&L may have connections with some intelligence agency or other but this is not conforimed. MH&L frequently gets contracts for infrastructure projects funded by the International Monetary Funds or High Powered Wall Street Banks.
