You will play the role of a young reporter who has just moved to New York City in hopes to make their “big break.” 

You’ve recently received a lead that suggests magic is here in Midtown, among some of the most popular Manhattan sights! 

Your lead instructs you to meet him in Grand Central, where he’ll provide you with everything you need in order to discover a Secret Society of Magical Persons. 

Yes, that sounds just like another rubbish lead (magic, pfft), except that this time your gut tells you to follow it anyway. 

Be careful, magic was banished here in America over a century ago. This is a dangerous mission, but an even bigger story!
