Dropping the Veil
“Humans for the most part don’t have a clue.
They don’t want one or need one either. They’re happy;
they think they have a good bead on things.”
Agent K, Men In Black
A Brief History…
Once upon a time, humans lived knowing the supernatural was real. Supernatural beings preyed upon the humans, as it was their nature. Humans always had the advantage of numbers, but advancements in technology bolstered their strength and the supernaturals found themselves no longer the hunters but the hunted. The Fae, being outsiders to this reality, could retreat back to Never Never-Land, but the others had nowhere to go. The leaders of the various supernatural groups approached the Fae seeking assistance. A treaty was forged and the Supernatural Accords struck. In exchange for numerous benefits, the Fae cast a cosmic level Glamour upon the world, pushing knowledge of the supernatural into myth and legend, protecting them from humanity for all time…
The world as we know it
There is an energy throughout the world, greater in some places and less in others. Some people can tap into this energy and turn it into power that can make things happen, commonly referred to as magic. Use of such power leaves a mark upon a person, which other users can sense.
There are 3 types of users, Learned, Granted, and Natural. Learned users are those that must study and practice. Granted users are those that have their power given to them from beings with even greater power. Natural users have a power that just comes naturally.
Everyone has some kind of connection to this energy, even if they can’t do anything with it.
