In 1945 random everyday objects across the globe begun to behave in strange and extraordinary ways.
No one knows exactly how, or where the objects abilities come from. Our scientists theorise the strange and unpredicatble abilities are connected to our advancement into the nuclear age. The science, for now, is beyond our understanding and the best we can do is contain the objects to prevent them from causing harm or ending up in dangerous hands.
Urban Mysteries Co, an exploration and trading company, came into posession of an object in 1945 which could locate other empowered objects. Since then Urban Mysteries Co have tasked themselves with responsibility to identify and contain the objects.
The abilities of a particular object are often unpredictable, in some cases they are benign such as the ball point pen that never runs out of ink, others can be practical, fantastical or simply dangerous. There appears to be no way to predict how an individual object will behave without trial and error.
Strange and mysterious objects are at the heart of Urban Mysteries Co cases. Check our archive of objects that have been discovered so far.
