The Culper Agency OOC
Lex enim solus.
Those are the words scratched above the building of Culper HQ.
So, here's our plot:
There is a world beyond ours. It's called Sorcia. Sorcia is a land filled with strange things such as magic and monsters.
Occasionally, portals open up between our worlds. As such, they are not separate.
The Culper Agency was founded in 1775 as a spy ring, but was re-purposed as a sort of response team to Sorcian threats.
Shortly after WW2, the United States Government had managed to turn a few small pieces of Sorcia into US territories-all done in secret, mind you. The Culper Agency has jurisdiction to enforce the law here.
Recently, a cult called the Black Talon has been selling 'heroin' to some folk. In fact, the Heroin is spiked with Enthogen which gives folks magical powers, or causes other magical effects. Occasionally possession, for example.
The Culper Agency is now sending a team to investigate it.
Will you join them?
Some concepts to understand:
The AfterLife: Heaven and Hell are real places that people technically could travel to from Sorcia. However, little is known about these places. Anyone who's traveled to hell and back committed suicide or is catatonic-ally insane. Anyone who goes to heaven never wants to come back. As such, these areas are very much off-limits.
Magic exists, and usually works by giving people psionic powers such as elemental magic or telekinesis.
'Metamorphisis': As a Sorcian creature becomes more 'strong', they occasionally develo new features. For example, a Medusa like creature will Metamorphisize into a lamia and then a draconian creature.
Technology: The Culper Agency has advanced technology to be sure. Namely
here's a list of Races:
-Humans (Homo Sapiens): Natives to Earth, obviously. Not much to be said about them. Some have started immigrating into Sorcia, those blessed with the knowledge of their existance. And of course, the Culper Agency itself makes sure humans are involved.
-Sprites (Sorcia Celestia): The most common Sorcian race, they have wings and halos. Evil Angels are often reffered to as 'demons', while good ones are referred to as 'angels'. It is believed that they might be formed from human souls that don't live for very long (ie, they die as infants or before they're born). As they metamorphisize, they get more wings or bigger, better wings.
-Succubi (Sorcia Androgynia): An all female race with horns and a pointed tail. The bane of Men everywhere. Mating with one causes a narcotic effect, like a drug. It also causes some pretty nasty side effects, similar to drug use. In worst case scenarios, it can lead to...unpleasant results. For starters, they can impregnate men, and occasionally they'll change their victims into Succcubi themselves. They are legally not allowed to...well, exist. However, magic can transform them into members of another race, so that's their escape route if they want to live in legitimate society.
-Dryads (Sorcia Florias): Plant spirits. They have green skin, pointed ears, and plants for hair. They can control plant growth. They are attracted to plant life, and like to live in forests. As they Metamorphisize, they get taller and more plant like. Most Un-metaed Dryads are only a foot tall or so. Fully Meta-ed ones are as tall as trees.
-Gorginoids (Sorcia Heppetta): People who have reptillian features. As they Meta, they go to being gorgons to lamias to draconian creatures. They are occasionally able to breathe fire.
-Ungolates (Sorcia Ungolis): They look like a person from the upper torso and above, but beneath that they have features similar to a hooved mammal. They go from Satyrs to centaurs to pegasus like centaurs. Some of them have horns of various sorts, also.
-Other Races: You may be other things also, just ask me.
