Weird War II: Fate of the European Theatre
Dourshire Manor is the centre for all things dealing with the Office of Strategic Intelligence. Located in rural Cornwall, well away from other targets and places of interest, the OSI conducts much of it’s formal training here. Well outside the view of curious onlookers, newcomers to the OSI are physically tested, mentally evaluated, and handed knowledge known to only the elite few trusted with the fate of the war within a war.
While certain OSI agents may be selected for additional training with the SOE, MI6, or other, more traditional, services; for most Dourshire is the end of an education into a world they likely never knew existed. Collections of texts, runes, and hieroglyphs from the world over that have been recovered by many of the OSI’s parent organization have been deposited at Dourshire, both for their protection, and to assist in the education of those new to Second World.
While not officially the residence of any noble family, nor the seat of any parliamentary district. Dourshire is often visited by Sir Anthony Eden, who takes a personal interest in those joining his organization. It is also rumored that the US Army Chief of Staff, General Marshal, often visits and is interested in expanding his own nation’s role in the organization.
