Obelisk operates multiple teams of agents. One team, nicknamed Team Gwar, is filled with its most inhuman employees. A changeling, a man possessed by a goddess, a half-ghost, and a Valkyrie find themselves working together to protect the Ozarks from evil. Their first job is to investigate a series of odd incidents surrounding the local collegiate community. Of course not everything is as it appears..
Springfield, Missouri, the third largest city in the state, is quite small by national standards. It is a college town and the national headquarters of the Assemblies of God. It is a place where the business world rubs against the rural. It is a town in conflict with itself every day, and the general public is unaware of the day-to-day goings on of the behind-the-scenes. The area is full of history and folklore about its past, some of it is dismissed as “just a story,” while others are found to be horrifically true.
I’m here to tell you the “stories” can be just as horrific as the “truth.”
In this episode, we are introduced to some of the team members of Obelisk, a secret agency that protects the Ozarks from supernatural evil. Learn more about the campaign in this thread on the RPPR forums.
