MOP - Intro.1 - Introducing Agent O'Brian

The Ministry of the Occult and Paranormal Intro - 1:

Long Back Tavern - Boston, MA
Early October, 1889

I sit here drinking my beer contemplating my next steps.  My name is Michael O'Brian.  I am...well...was, an agent for the United States Secret Service.  My new assignment is just that.  New.  I am now the American representative of, or to, a new agency collaboration between the United States and the British Empire called, "The Ministry of the Occult and Paranormal."


"What the hell does that even mean/!"  I believe my face may have telegraphed that very sentiment as I sat across from Director Edward Thornton in his office.

"There have been some strange...situations, that we feel need to be investigated and dealt with - and we feel you're the right man for the job." He said.

When I attempted to ask a question, he shoved my reassignment order across his desk to me and said, "I know you have questions.  Address them to your British counterpart when you get to England."  I was then promptly ushered out.


So.  Here I sit.  I have been authorized up to 10 additional agents or consultants as part of the U.S. contingent, but I've been told I need to speak with the British first before selecting them.  So I'm on my own for now.  Hopefully they have coffee in England.

While I probably shouldn't be writing any of this down per instructions about "secrecy" given to me by the director...I feel that as one of the founding agents of a very strange agency...I may some day want a record of events so as to be able to accurately tell my story.  

(Note - I was given an address to send my reports to.  A place called "Wardenclyffe" on Long Island.
