Earth is a blue and green planet orbiting in eternal night around the cursed sun. Half of the world is dark and the other half is hit with daylight creating an illusion that the universe is bright but it isn't.
All of the billions of humans dying every second become a ghost. Ghosts are not restrained by Earths gravity and so are propelled out to space. Ghosts are then attracted by the gravity of dead planets. When the planets are in alignment the dead can return to live on Earth.
When this happened to mankind for the first time the Earth was overpopulated with zombies and other undead making life impossible.
Then thousands years ago a ghost calling himself The Grim Reaper stayed at Earth to cull the ghosts from Earth that didn't leave and to make sure Ghosts passed on and didn't interfere with the living.
The Reaper trained to aid his task, 13 mortal ghost hunters. The harvesters, who betrayed the Reaper in their quest for immortality.
They crucified the Reaper on a cross within a sealed camber in the core of a hell. A Demon ruling this hell, the Devil Of Death arrived to take over the Reapers title and claiming all of Earths souls.
The harvesters found a way to stay on Earth forever as animated corpses by devouring the life energies of the living.
Stealing the secrets of death,they created the art of necromancy and formed black cults that will pest the Earth to its last days. No longer ghost hunters, the harvesters sought to become gods through the black magic of necromancy. Being immortals, they have gathered secrets through the millenniums and they trade souls to demons.
A repentant harvester had a pang of conscience and trained a new generation of harvesters, giving them the task once given to him.
In 1930 a old comet arrived passing Earth, as it did so Earths gravity no longer repelled Ghosts.
An army of space ships with aliens and ghosts are ready to invade Earth and enslave the living.
There are other dangers however and they are on Earth.
Living humans that are trained with being reborn wraiths possessed their mothers. A race of risen zombies that cannibalize their living counterparts to remain on earth.
An undead demon has come to Earth seeking to take over the Grim Reapers Title. In so doing he turned zombies to vampires and possessed them with demonic evil which enhanced their powers.
The new vampire race was divided into high clans and low tribes. Each was possessed by a different aspect of the devil of death.
In the 14th century what is called the Vampire War started. Vampires rebelled against the devil worshipers that created them and and mutated. However without the demon the vampires quickly weakened and died. With a thought the demon turned them back to zombies or killed them.
The new vampires fled to the east where they learned to transform themselves and gain power from following strict religious codes and philosophies. They learned to drink soul energy called breath instead of eating normal food, or even sustain themselves from pure meditation. Through strict fundamentalist sects the vampires found a way to sustain themselves with another power source than the demon.
