Trick of the Light
Recruitment drives. When you go through Agents at the rate the Brotherhood does they’re a necessary evil. Normally we’d send somebody from personnel but they’re on an away day. Again. So pack your bags, you’re off to Vegas and the Convention of Magical Americans. We need you to scout the show for any potential recruits, every year there’s at least one true student of the arcane arts mixed in amongst the stage magicians. Not that you should discount the illusionists, misdirection and sleight of hand are just as valuable in our line of work.
We’ve nabbed some press passes for you. Well, we told them you were influencers… whatever that means. So look the part and try not to go too viral, your health insurance doesn’t cover that.

Missing pets. Not normally a big responsibility for the Brotherhood but every so often a flurry of reports gains enough attention to warrant an investigation. 14 cats, 7 dogs, 1 parrot and a capybara have gone missing from this neighbourhood in the span of a week, which is unusual enough to get a Chapter sent out. An Omega Chapter, it’s not worth the time of anybody else.
In other words: YOU.
Tamara Backrel, a Brotherhood videomancer obsessed with horror films, has snapped after one too many late night movie marathons. She’s withdrawn into a pocket reality of her own making, dragging half her team with her. The rest have fallen prey to evils of the silver screen, released in a burst of uncontrolled magics. The Chapter, stuck on Warehouse duty, have been dispatched on pizza delivery duty unaware that their comrades have fallen to one of their own…
