I finally got around to writing up a little something about the X-Files-esque setting I first mentioned Here.
There is an international organization that exists to protect humanity from horrors beyond the laws of science and rationality. Nearly every government in the world provides funding for this organization, and backdoors into their computer systems and records allows for its agents to impersonate government employees and to purge any evidence of the supernatural.
You are one of these agents. You will die unnoticed, unremembered, and likely in terrible pain. Through your sacrifice, humanity will live to see another day. Welcome to the Occult Containment Directive.
Generally, the OCD doesn't know the exact details of what is going on, simply that something isn't right. PCs will be provided with details of any anomalous activity, but should not be given suggestions as to the nature of the anomaly or how to neutralize it, they will need to find that out during play.
The OCD has 3 main priorities, listed in order of importance below:
- Ensure that the public is no longer threatened by any anomalous phenomena
- If feasible, retrieve any anomalous objects for further study
- Attempt to prevent any civilian casualties
- Martial Artist
- Walks with a limp
- Severe phobia
- Missing an eye
- Haunted by the spirit of a dead loved one
- Missing a hand
