Scenario: The game begins with an alternate ending to Season 4. Instead of accepting Wolfram & Hart's offer, Angel has declined and decided to do things his own way. Angel Investigations is still in-tact and operating out of the Hyperion Hotel, though they're hurting for business -- badly. Things are still in a state of disarray as Los Angeles struggles to recover from the Jasmine incident.
Meanwhile, Sunnydale has been destroyed, imploding during the final battle with the First Evil. While this is good for humanity overall, it causes a few problems for the Scooby Gang, the members of which are now looking for a new mission statement.
