For those new to Storium, this is a beginner game (players/writers with no or limited previous game activity.). We will focus on learning how to use Storium. Each Scene will have Challenges that are designed to help you learn different aspects of the awesome Storium Universe and we will complete about 2 scenes for this Storium game (a shortened story for a beginning game).
The story revolves around a cohort of cadets at a training academy.
It is your first day at DAO Academy located in the Catskill Mountains in New York State, USA. You are a rookie recruit for the DAO. The Department of Abnormal Occurrences (DAO) is a worldwide organization dedicated to dealing with strange situations. DAO Agents operate in a world filled with metas (non-baselines), mystical, magical, aliens, humans (baselines) and more all trying to find a place in this crazy world. You are on your way to becoming a DAO Agent. You just have to survive your basic training at the Academy.
The Academy is set in the extended DAO universe. Examples of other games in the same universe include DAO Season 1, DAO Season 2, and DAO: Vault 13. There is also a DAO Wiki
Don’t be daunted by the extensive history. Each game is a self contained story. No previous knowledge is required.
The world DAO Academy is set in is similar to ours. Though there is a fantasy twist. In this world, the supernatural and the fantastic exist. Aliens have visited. Fey toy with mortals. Scientist fiddle with the very fabric of space and time.
The average denizen of Earth had no idea there were magical and meta mixed in. It was the DAO’s mission to help contain the meta/magical world. This was easy when Metas and magic was “hidden”, existing on the fringes and edges of society. But times change and more are aware now of Metas and this makes the DAO’s job a lot more complicated. The world is in a time of transition.
This is set in the storyworld of Department of Abnormal Occurrences created by @Twisted_Gnome - thanks TG for letting us play in the DAO sandbox
