Dark Streets




The city is all around you, a hungry, embracing darkness, it is an insatiable machine that draws in lives and grinds them to ruin. We dress it up with parks, with developments, with fucking shopping malls, but that dosen't change what it is. Beneath the glitz and glamor, behind the broad defensive walls of the suburbs, beneath the feeble glare of streetlights, the city is a relentless monsotorous beast, gorging itself on a cornucopia of flesh and corruption. And that is just the humans.

Beneath the streets dark forces are at play. Coven's of vampires move through the night, stalking their next victims. Strange fae courts dance to music no mortal can hear, granting gifts to mortals that twist in their hands to destroy their very souls. Dark things from the infernal realm ride behind the eyes of inconspicuous business men and leering insane wizards plunge daggers into the hearts of their sacrificial victims. Worse yet these forces move against each other, grinding mortal and magical alike between their titanic metaphysical mass.

A storm is coming.

If you want to survive the storm, you had best get busy...

Welcome to my very ill advised attempt to run an Urban Fantasy game. You should be thinking along the lines of the Dresden files, Supernatural, Vampire the Masquerade, with a touch of The Wire and True Detective. This is a Noir Rp, if you ask yourself if you need to be more Noir, then you obviously haven't gone noir enough!

This will be a story about survival against the odds and against powers

Alot of the detail will be workshoped in the RP but the characters will all be members of the extended magical community in a major US city. Magical influences are always clandestine, preferring to pull the strings from the shadows. The cops may be working for vampires, but they probably dont know it. This dosen't mean you have to be a magical creature, you can be a mundane who through skill or training or bad luck is pulled into the underworld and knows the real score. If you are a magical creature you are probably low powered and you are on the outs with your own faction for some reason or another. You also have a way of blending in with the normals, it could be a glamour, it could be a baseball hat.

Some ideas: Wizard, Vampire, Werewolf, Fae, Hunter, Oracle, ect.

I will be accepting four players total. Period. End of story.

You will be expected to provide significant input to the plot and the setting. You will also be expected to have friends, allies and enemies who will be caught in the crossfire. Lone super hero orphans who sprang from the ground fully formed and ready to fight evil need not apply.

I like dark streets, and most of my wardrobe is black.

Which is to say that, I need some more noir in my life.

In terms of range of supernatural entities i'm assuming we're allowed to use from all cultures?

I'm brainstorming on if I should be my Celtic trickster or just go full on human detective.

What is a noir story without a troubled detective?

It's a bit conventional, but I'm feeling a recently embraced vampire.

I'm going to keep character submission simple

Name:
Character Concept:
Trouble:
Scene:


Example:

Not a real character

Name: Alexandria Flores
Character Concept: Drug dealing wizard
Trouble: My pockets are stuffed with my fathers blood stained money
Scene: A short scene which lets me know who your character is.

Characters will be accepted based on merit, not first come first serve.

@POOHEAD189
Tiefling. May also be the antichrist considering he was born to and raised by a satanic doomsday cult, but he tends to ignore that in favour of being a genuinely decent person.

My concept so far (based mostly on a vampire mafia):


TL;DR: Police Woman turned Vampire Mobster




As it's Friday though, not sure I'll get much done tonight (must dance, drink, and be merry).

Since I am somewhat pressed for time, (and I did not get a chance to try him last game) I will be resubmitting Caber, though I reread him and added some edits! Hopefully he is good enough to be accepted :)
