"But at the same time we can’t help but feel that with all this potential, the city and culture somehow disappoint us."
Carey McWilliams




The City of Angels has many names. You've seen it all before on TV and movies with all of its cliches. Hollywood, The Skyline, Washed Up Actors and Sunny Beaches. All of it has a strange air of normal except not. Eccentric is the right word for it. Each of its neighborhoods carry a special culture and air about it that's unique to it. You can go anywhere in the world but yet... you'll never find another Los Angeles, or the people in it. However, Los Angeles is going to be much, much, different in this universe with the rise of superhumans (Or, Deltahumans as they're called). Certain agencies out there are trying to maintain some semblance of normality but there's nothing that can change the upcoming storm.

Originally set in my Recollections Universe but I decided to give that a break lest I burn myself out on the setting. I was reading up on some Worm fanfics and I wanted to make an RP somewhat like that. However, I wanted to give a different type of GMing a try: I wanted an RP with a heavy player involvement on how the storylines goes and what type of characters are there. Basically I wanted to pitch a plotline to everyone every so often and we all vote which direction the RP goes in and somehow we'll try to have a coherent storyline. I also wanted every character to have their own story arc and be heavily involved in whatever storyline we come up with (you guys will see). Which is part of the point of this interest check; I wanted to get everyone's opinions on how things will go.

Lemme start...

1. Discord RP? Y/N. This is just a suggestion mainly bc I never did one before.

2. Semi-Sandbox, or Linear RP? I say Semi-Sandbox because pure sandbox RPs never last forever, but I think a more linear approach may be better.

3. What should the cast be like? Now this will determine a huge part of the rp and how the plots play out. From the top of my head we can do something liiiike...
- A group of normal peeps caught in the wrong situation
- A gang of Deltahumans (I thought about a primarily female gang)
- Members of the Deltahuman enforcement agency (Known as FAMA)
- Something else? I'm open to a wide variety of idea


From there we can start hashing out stuff like the plot and the opening arcs.

1. Nay
2. Linear
3. I'm down for a girl gang. Or couples on a retreat to either relax and have fun, fix their failing relationships, or try to reconnect.

1) No preference (though I already clicked the join link for you rdiscord, my username there is tal0n)
2) Linear is probs best for this
3) I'm down for a female gang or member of FAMA

1. Never done a Discord RP, so not really sure what that entails.
2. I can do either, but I feel linear will make it easier to follow for all.
3. I prefer the gang or the FAMA idea :)

Really interested in this, hopefully once I'm into the flow of home working I should have some spare time for this :).

I like the idea of playing a female gang and their adventures throughout the city.

Perhaps their rise in the criminal hierarchy in the city? Them claiming more territory, moving in on other gang's territories etc.? Could be interesting to have them start from the bottom and work their way up :)

Yeah, the gang won't be that exclusive.

Yeah that sounds good and maybe some stuff to mix it up. I did want to style it after Worm.

hawt

Now... I'm going to have a vote on the gang's name, the plotline, and maybe if the gang starts assembled or not. I have ideas of my own buuuuuuuuut imma let you guys pitch stuff.

Unlike other RPs set in the Black Fall universe, I'm going to not make this as lore intensive.

Having them pre-assembled makes it a little easier to start things off, but having them come together during the RP gives a little more scope for character development. The only question is how you'd then bring them together? Have one character that goes out of their way to recruit them? Have two gangs that merge to form this one?

I think the general consensus is going towards a gang forming out of the ruins of LA after a natural (or perhaps Superhuman) disaster.

Harpies, Sirens, Daughters of Chaos, Phoenix (born from the ashes of ruin). Ghosts of LA is a good title.

Allow me to rate your gang names!

Harpies, Sirens, Daughters of Chaos, Phoenix (born from the ashes of ruin). Ghosts of LA is a good title.


Harpies meh.

Sirens maybe.

Daughters of Chaos sounds a bit too... what's the word for it? Wordy.

Phoenix, I like that one the most.

I have a few names. Misfit Angels or Rejected Angels.


Did you get this from a random gang name generator? lol

But individually Angels/Misfits sounds good

Potato pals.


Alright gang I found our name!

Though I'm still leaning on either Furies (or maybe Erinyes if they wanted to be a pretentious gang), Phoenixes or the Sirens

Gals Pals is also a good name for a gang.

I was thinking about the event that caused everything to go tits up. I think we've established that it should be a Deltahuman that destroyed LA - but what exactly do you guys suggest it be and how? Because, for once, I'm drawing blanks. I might be lame and say it was an Endbringer expy (maybe it's still in the city).

Also, should we start after the chaos, have a mini prologue showing shit going tits up and just skip afterwards, or play through it all.
