The Estate dispatches operatives to Duvall, Michigan (population 1,200). Once a thriving iron-smelting town on the shores of Lake Huron, Duval has fallen on hard times, much like Detroit and Flint to the south. The Estate fears that something Strange related is happening in the small town. Residents report odd sounds and weird lights at night, alarming smells, and most worryingly, a rash of suicides by Duvall residents.
Your group of operatives is sent out on its first official investigation to learn if the activity is Strange related, and if so, to put a stop to it.
Note: This is a variation on a published scenario for The Strange.
About The Strange: Beneath our universe lies a chaotic network of dark energy called the Strange. Few know or even suspect its existence, but for those who have discovered it, everything is different. These select few know the Strange hosts numberless recursions, unique but limited worlds with their own laws of reality.
You are quickened—one of the few on Earth aware of the Strange and able to access the alternate realities that lie in Earth’s shoals. You know these worlds are often governed by rules of physics, science, or even magic that are different that our own. You know they often hold powerful artifacts that can bend reality back on Earth. And that they contain dangers unlike anything back home.
To the world at large, the Estate is a philanthropic institute interested in funding research in several scientific fields of inquiry. While that’s partly true, the Estate’s actual goal is to protect the Earth—and all of its life forms—from all threats to its existence from the Strange. As one of only a handful of organizations cognizant of the dark energy network, the Estate is uniquely positioned to deal with the threats the Strange represents. Operatives have several goals, including investigating any events that could be related to the dark energy network.Tags: Adventure, Dark, Drama, Graphic Violence, Horror, Intrigue, Investigation, Modern, Play to find out, Sci-Fi, Serious, Strong storyline, Suspenseful, tragic horror
