Now imagine playing small town teens doing strange illegal things while trying to keep them hidden from the sheriff, lest he calls the magical cops.This campaign has either ruined urban mysteries for me or then made them even better.
Because I just finished watching 3 seasons of Stranger Things, and while I liked the series very much, I kept catching myself thinking: "Yeah, at about this point OCD would roll in if this was the real world - er, wait..."
But that is probably how OCD detectives feel when watching series like that. "Okay, bullets hardly hurt the monsters coming through the strange portal. They are obviously demons. And this is supposed to be a secret government facility. Government would have already called in their mages! This is bullshit!"
But when there is a suitable point in the campaign, I really need to write in an event where small town teens get caught doing something strange, tell the sheriff / police chief about weird things happening in town, and instead of dismissing them the sheriff opens the safe, checks what the little red folder instructs to do, calls the number listed, and then magic cops from the big city arrive.
