>Okay, so, baseline human against the equivalent of hateful monsters that will never suspect a dude with a Molotov Cocktail to actually throw it at them, because they think they've got my mind fucked. Got it.
Close, but not quite.
Depending on who you are, you can access strange powers known as Edges, to help combat the monsters.
Keep in mind that they're not as powerful as every other supernatural, who can do things like throw people into shadows forever, jump through computers and punch you through the internet, turn into horrible Angel like beings, Possess other human beings to kill you, eat you with a single bite (and the car you were trying to hide in), or, in the case of Mages, completely destroy your reality and replace it with their own.
Oh, and also the world's going to end in a few years.
And yeah, you'll notice that the World of Darkness, ESPECIALLY the Old World of Darkness, is a lot like a crazy horror comic book. That's part of the fun.
