It is July of 1950, a US Naval Intelligence station in the Mediterranean learns a Vichy collaborator, Gerome Toutain has surfaced in French Algeria. A member of the the mysterious Ordre des Chevaliers de Salian and collaborator with the infamous Ahnenerbe, it is believed that Toutain holds a great deal of information on the Axis’ occult aspirations and activities during World War 2.
The newly formed Threat Assessment and Containment taskforce has been ordered to apprehend Toutain for debriefing. His wartime knowledge could prove valuable and he may know the whereabouts of other fascists who thus far have escaped justice.
This short game is about one of the first TAC (Threat Assessment and Containment) missions, taking place a year after organization’s creation. This story is part of the DAO (Department of Abnormal Occurrences) universe.
The tone of this game is two-fisted action adventure that is somewhere between Indiana Jones and Captain America: First Avengers. There will undoubtedly be occult idols, tommy guns, fascists and fedoras!
This game is specced for six players, three from other DAO games and three from open invitations. Players will rotate in as other players retire but part of the reason for this game is to get more Storium players involved in this awesome world created and maintained entirely in Storium games.
1950 America. Anti-communism grips America as the Federal government and concerned citizens seek to root out possible 5th column communist agents and sympathizers. It is a time social conservatism while thriving materialism and an economic explosion stirs changes in social dynamics and norms.
1950 French Algeria. Tensions run high in the colonial holding as native Berber populations chaff under French rule. Political parties vocally agitate for independence in the cities and Bedouins increasing flout French authority in the country side and vast deserts.
