What is the DAO?
The Department of Abnormal Occurrences (DAO) is a worldwide organization dedicated to dealing with strange situations. DAO Agents operate in a world filled with metas (non-baselines), mystical-aligned, magic users, aliens, humans (baselines) and more all trying to find a place in this crazy world.

What is the TAC?
The Abnormal Occurrence Threat Assessment and Containment (AO-TAC or TAC) is a sister organization to DAO dedicated to the more military side of dealing with strange situations. TAC and the AO TSU solders who are all part of TAC focus on containing the dangers associated with metas (non-baselines), mystical-aligned, magic users, aliens, and more when the individual makes the wrong decision or becomes a threat to peace or prior to the event, secrecy.
The main foci of TAC are: training the AO TSU and the regular military for preparedness for emergencies related to these non-baseline types, Study of DAO findings as related to countering the advantages of non baselines and items of military significance, and Containment. TAC is in charge of the blackest of black sites. A prison designed to contain the most dangerous of the Cryptid, Meta, Alien and Mystical threats
Storium Games that form the Universe
DAO Stories come in many forms. There are the larger, Season Storium games that are structured similar to how Seasons are used in Television. There have been two seasons of the main DAO storium, one season of Safe Haven Games, one season of Monroe Academy, one season of Project Mogul: The Brazel Ranch Occurrence, one season of DAO Vault 13, two seasons of DAO Academy and one season of TAC: Case File. During a season, agents may be sent on Fire Team Missions. Some Fire Team missions have their own Storium Games and some are found within the larger Season Storium games.
DAO Storium Games
Game Detail Pages contain information about the Storium game mechanics and general structure. DAO Story Pages/Dossiers contain information about the plot and narrative. Some games have multiple Story plots/Dossiers. Check the quick guide to all Storium DAO/TAC games for a quick review of stories.

Types of Beings in the Gnomeverse
Alien - of non-terrestrial origin, may be mystical or not. example: Vruul. See DAO Alien Encounters for more information.
Cryptid a.k.a. Mythical - may be created or born, but while terrestrial, they are certainly non-human. Hybrids generally fall into this category. Example: Chimerae
Mystical - empowered by the conscious manipulation of energy. example: druids
Meta - similar to superheroes, these folk may be manipulating energy, or shooting lazer beams, or super strong but they aren't consciously using magic. example: Brick
Angelic/Demonic - The beginning of time here was a war brewing in heaven. The archangel Lucifer and his faction opposed the archangel Michael coming to represent the sides of evil and good, sin and grace. There are never just two sides in a war. In this case there were those who didn't or wouldn't take sides. The war raged, yadda yadda. And finally god stepped in. He cast down the fallen and Lucifer created his own enclave, Hell. God, in his wrath he cast down also the doubters, the cowards and the peaceniks, but Lucifer did not welcome them for they did not take his side either. The were forced to take refuge among his second, chosen children. Since then some have remained neutral, but others have courted the favor of one side or another. Abbadon is one such.
Norms - Some, hell, most folks are just Normal, but that doesn't mean they can't do the job. Besides, some Cryptids are more human that some humans. So we call them Norms. example: Bryant
Grab Bag - We've met alien mages and meta cryptids, there's no hard and fast rule saying you can only be one.
Other - Some beings just don't fit in any of the boxes, so we made this one extra fitting. example: Roza
And FINALLY a shout out to diversity - there is also no rule saying that you can't be both Autistic AND a Mage, or Wheelchair bound AND Meta.
