Prodical Son
A Renraku executive hires the team to extract his runaway son
from a cult organization called Arcane Inc. This cult/company promises
that all people are inherently magical and that through proper training
and discipline, it is possible to be magical. The school is basically
a sucker trap for rich folks who wish they were magical.
The company does however, have magic. Its four leaders are in
fact hermetic mages, one of which cloaks himself in a shamanic tradition
so as to through folks off. Through fancy illusions, and a few mind
control spells, these four have swindelled a great deal of money from
several thousand people. The leader is an initiate who quickens spells
to their 'followers' and leads them to believe it is their own magic
manifesting. In addition to these mages, the company has hired several
bodyguards to protect the compound which is located in the woods of
the Fort Lewis district (basically put the compound somewhere away
from the real world).
Last question- is the son truly magical? You decide....
