Set in the universe of the Netflix movie, Bright...

Ladies and gentlemen, the story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.

This is the city. Detroit, Michigan. Motown. I work here. I carry a spellbook. You might think that a cop doesn't have a lot of use for a spellbook in this modern age. It's 1984, not 1684 after all. However, ever since I was promoted to Detective and transferred to the Corktown precinct, I've learned that a good officer has to be prepared for anything.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Player are asked to prepare an ordinary human who could have been present for "the incident". A brief description is fine, though full-blown character work is fine too. I'll fill in details for players who just want to do minimal work ahead.

The date and place are infamous. Did aliens land on earth? Was it just a weather balloon? Crazy theories have abounded about what really happened that night. None of them come close. You would know; you were there.

Adventure and mystery. Consequential choices.

Sitting abandoned in a remote area of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, the Old Pine Lodge has recently gained interest as the subject of a new horror movie. Per IMDB, the structure is the site of many unsolved mysteries and thought to be one of the most haunted buildings on the east coast. As part of a publicity stunt for the movie premier, several guests and a small film crew have been invited to spend a weekend at the Lodge. Anyone still remaining within the building at sunrise on Monday, will share in a cash prize.

The game is afoot! (Sorry folks it literally could not be helped).

Holmes and Watson are dead - that much is sure, but are they gone? Spirits are restless, extraordinary gentlemen are about (what did Captain Nemo know and why did he want Holmes's violin? In fact why does everyone you encounter seem interested in it? What was Holmes mixed up in? Where is Moriarty? How is Mycroft involved? And what is a hell hound doing roaming the streets of London? So many questions and all you have are two corpses and a violin....so far.

But opening night might turn out to be closing night, when Ms. Claypool's lifeless body tumbles onto the stage in the middle of Act 2.

Who committed this dastardly deed, and why?

September 1983. Summer is at an end and it's time for classes to resume. While the Ministry is still rounding up the occasional Dark Wizard, things are quiet in Wizarding England. The Daily Prophet's only truly sensational stories all summer were of a werewolf roaming Knockturn Alley and speculations of American squibs trying to undermine the Statute of Secrecy. Now it's a short trip by train back to Hogwarts with its familiar common rooms, staircases, house ghosts and house rivalries.

Summer. A time when Rowling just glosses over months and the Decree Against Underaged Magic inspires creativity among young witches and wizards. You and a group of students are starting a volunteer rotation at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries. Some of you are genuine volunteers, others exploring careers, a few serving a rare summer detention for Madam Pomfrey, and one or two working toward extra credit. How bad can a few weeks be in London over the summer of 1983? You'll be surrounded by healers even if it goes wrong, right?

The Marchessa of Guilt is dead by her own hand. She very nearly damaged the Estate of Guilt itself. Now her Imperator and its Powers sits in Judgement before Lord Entropy under suspicion of treason against creation. Your Inquisitorial Familia has been called in to clear or condemn them. You are Nobilis, once mortal, now the leading expression and guardian of one small part of reality; A Sovereign Power.

The trail of evidence leads to Silent Peaks, a sleepy mist-shrouded town in the Pacific north-west, sometime in the near the present. You and your fellow Nobles will seek answers there. But if you fail to find them, you may share the Doom that has taken root there.

The Great Detective summoned you out of the blue, as he is wont to do. There was no substance as to why your particular talents were required but, as always, you answered the call.

Arriving at the stoop of 221B Baker Street, you were not greeted as normal by the redoubtable Mrs. Hudson but by the slightly ajar door...you called out hesitantly, entered cautiously only to find the corpses of Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson. Others of the Irregulars have arrived as well and the group of you are left with a horrific scene and the mystery of who killed the world's greatest detective.

An Irregular Affair is a mystery, an adventure and an entrée into a broader story that may take players far afield from their current lives in the Great City and roles as members of the Baker Street Irregulars. This game may become a continuing affair.
