As mentioned in one of my recent entries I'm going to be running a Beyond the Supernatural
game with cavebearranting
and a few other people here in Wakefield.
I had a few ideas that I was playing about with, but I've settled on one now. I'm gonna write about it here but not mention any of the major plot details.
About six months ago a gruesome spree of vicious murders spread across the English countryside. 20 people were killed, until the police finally discovered the murderer; a lesser Demon.
The beast was slain, but at the cost of a further six police officers. Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith submitted the Occult Investigation Bill
to Parliament, which was surprisingly voted for unanimously by both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, enacting into Law on October 1st 2007 as the 2007 Occult Investigation Act.
This act provided the basis for the creation of two government departments: the "D
epartment of S
esearch" (DSR), and the "S
aranormal, and O
is tasked with scientific research into the Occult, Magic, and supernatural Biology.SPORE
is tasked with investigating all crimes that are deemed to be related to the Supernatural, Paranormal, or Occult. They are charged with apprehending, and in very extreme cases slaying, supernatural criminals.
The characters will at first be the only operatives of SPORE at it's inception and will have special dispensation from the government (making use of the 2007 Occult Investigation Act) to bend some laws to protect the public.
And that's all I'm gonna say about it for now. Anything else will spoil the game. ;)
