Occult Investigation Society
The Occult Investigation Society was founded in 1810, the merging of an order of the Roman Catholic Inquisition, a school of magic users, and the British government.
Dedicated to exploring the unknown, preserving the paranormal world around them, and keeping the darkest corners of the world at bay, the O.I.S. was rather successful for nearly one hundred years.
In the fall of 1910, the O.I.S. found itself under attack by a powerful group of necromancers.
Slaughtered nearly to the last man, cornered in the last stronghold held by the OIC, the remaining member of the Societies ruling council was forced to take drastic action.
Now the very things the Society once observed studied and hunted have been let loose upon the world to push back the night.
