Daemon - A human connection experience
The Authority – this world’s God – is dead. He has been killed by bold and visionary people, including some of you. Others of you were on his side. You will play scholars, low nobility, scientists, nomads, people formerly of The Church, or people identifying as witches to celebrate the victory, mourn your losses, and explore the possibilities under the new world order. Soldiers are returning from the war on The Authority, and the world has sunk into a state of disillusionment for some and euphoria for others. Imagine the divine entity that was as natural a part of your life as breathing the air around you – gone.
Some of you helped bring down the frail, pathetic being holding humanity in his grasp with false teachings and zealots doing his bidding. The Magisterium, the harsh church of The Authority, is no longer and you will be forced (more or less willingly) to question all its teachings. But now, another problem has occurred. The Magisterium dropped bombs filled with powder many places in the country as a last, desperate act. Some scientific instruments are measuring strange phenomena and there are rumors that the power affects the bond between human and Daemon. Therefore, Parliament has asked some of you to come to the Blackett estate and remain there until further notice so they can ensure everything is alright. There is probably nothing to worry about, so you have all accepted the invitation and have come to investigate.
Lady Philippa Blackett has welcomed everybody with open arms since she had already planned a marvelous weekend to celebrate the war heroes. Her brother Lord Edward was an officer that was killed in the war, and she is overjoyed to offer a free space to look into matters never previously investigated. She has also insisted that you celebrate the victory of science and free will with some of the returning war heroes. They will certainly need help processing the horrors of the war, and perhaps their own actions, so a little party should be a good start to help with that. Also, there is a sense of ecstasy amongst those of you who are ready to enjoy a new regime, toast to the fallen, and have important discussions regarding the new world order.
So, you have accepted the invitation for different reasons.
Some of you seek conciliation.
Some come to seek answers.
And some come to start a new world.
