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 linked to one small aspect of the DAO - DAO Vault 13. The DAO has many places around the world where it keeps the assorted mystical, magical, power objects it collects and recovers. These secure storage areas are generally referred to as Vaults by the DAO organization. DAO Vault 13 is different from the other DAO Vaults as it is part of a network of 13 ancient vaults located around the world. The origin of these special vaults and their original purpose is shrouded in myth, rumor and legend. Much is unknown or shrouded in mystery regarding Vault 13, but it is very useful in containing powerful and special objects. It is known that these Vaults are able to contain mystical energy and provide a safe place to store multiple items that in other places would become volatile as the effectiveness of an object placed in a Vault is dampened. Various organizations and individuals have looked after and used the 13 Vaults through time. The Vaults are linked and there must always be 13 Vaults. If a Vault is destroyed, another must be created and connected to the other Vaults through a ritual that has been passed down through the ages by the Vault Scholars, a group that has been following and studying the Vaults for hundreds of years. At this time the Vaults are controlled by different groups who form a Vault Consortium. How the DAO acquired responsibility for Vault 13 and became part of the Consortium is classified. Vault 13 was recently destroyed. The DAO has been working to reestablish the Vault. If a Vault is not reestablished with in the time and guidelines, the entire Vault network will begin to breakdown leading to a potentially apocalyptic catastrophe.
It is up to you to make sure Vault 13 is ready and open for business. Good luck, you are going to need it.
This is a very short story designed to take place during the opening of the Vault and the first object retrieval mission.
The feel of this game is a bit of Friday the 13th the TV series meets Warehouse 13 meets X-Men. Oooo so many thirteens ;)
