Okay, Signal Lakes is the western tip of the Bermuda Triangle, the Signal of the Lakes attracts all kinds of paranormal things and creatures and energies, and it's all the worse because of the chaotic influence of The Triangle, right, sure.
What nobody ever said before is that all of that makes the ley lines in Signal Lakes a lot more powerful than other places, or more concentrated, or something? Well, that's not totally surprising when you think about it, but there's another catch...
..Apparently, when the stars are right or whatever, the magical potential of All of The Above manifests,
It's basically a nigh-infinite source of mystical power, and every powerful paranormal creature and faction around will be coming for it...
..And you, your fellow Teenage Creatures, and your city are going to be caught up in the fight over it....
IWATC is a narrative-focused urban fantasy RPG where it doesn't matter how strong your werewolf is, or how fast his vampire is, or how beautiful her fae is…what matters is how these characters feel, what drives them to do things, not how inherently capable they are of accomplishing them. What keeps the viewers of Buffy or Teen Wolf or any other young-adult urban fantasy show coming back every episode? Is it the Monster of the Week? No, it's the angst and drama of the young adult characters' lives, how they face the paranormal shinola they're wrapped up in. Come play a character that could star on such a show, and see how their angst and emotions drive their story.
Player characters in IWATC each have a Trope, summing up who they are or what purpose they serve in the story. If you get a character sheet that says "Ditzy Cheerleader" or "Computer Nerd", you already know how to play that character. The rest is figuring out what it means when your Trope is a Werewolf, or a Ghost, or a Hunter, or whatever.
