Occulta Mundi- Perception is not Reality
A Brief History of the Bureau
The Bureau of Abnormal Deterrence was founded after a raid in Massachusetts, during the winter of 1927-28, initially staffed by a combination of Navy and Marine personnel, and agents from the Treasury Department and the Bureau of Investigation.
“Occult Occurrences”, as they were known at the time, were in an escalation pattern during the Twenties and Thirties, meaning the BAD was born into strife, and had to come out swinging.
And swing they did. Many of their early missions trickled down into the minds of the pulp writers of the time, leading to increased awareness of the supernatural, and therefore increased incidents.
It was during these birthing pains that the First Protocol was established, marking the need for secrecy that continues to this day and many of the techniques that we use today were developed.
