The Beta Agency
The Beta Agency, often simply known as “the Beta”, is a private investigation and security agency based on Ash, but operating throughout the whole Horizon system. The services offered by the agency are diverse, from advanced forensics consulting
to highly focused incursions in Horde controlled territories.
Given the number of specializations required, the Betas, as the organisation’s agents are called, have very different backgrounds. The Agency pays well and isn’t against hiring freelancers, if they need them.
The Beta Agency in Play: One of the greatest problems of an RPG campaign is finding a reasonable motivation for the heroes to stay together. Being part of the Beta, even as freelancers, can be a good way of getting the party together. For this reason
in the backgrounds of the pre-generated characters below you’ll find a subsection titled Recruitment, describing how they got involved with the Beta. If you prefer to use the characters without the Beta, simply ignore that part.
