Game Type

New World of Darkness / Mortals Game

Setting

Gotham City
Alternate DC Universe Earth using various Batman sources (Comics, Animated Show, Games, Movies, Etc.)
Batman has vanished from the shadows of the city, very early in his career. Bruce Wayne's story has him listed that he was in a "car crash" for his current handicap state. The various crime families and psychopaths that infest the city are starting to notice the disappearance of the Bat now and the city is becoming a cesspool of lawlessness once again. The game is primarily using the movies Batman Begins/The Dark Knight as its main source in the dark reality of the world and the fact that no other superheroes exist. This doesn't mean that some of Bat's villains with superpowers aren't going to show up at some point. I may throw in some known DC characters as their non-super selves around in the news or in Gotham City itself still just for the fun of it.


The Rundown

With the start of the new school year I have lost a few players. Because of that I'm going to reopen up a game ad to see if I can round up another player or two so I can at least get the group back up to a full size for what I wanted. So again I am looking for *2* players to refill now open slots. I will be leaving the ad up with no cut off at this point in time until I can find said replacements. I highly recommend people look over the game forum to get an idea of how the world is set up and what is going on within it.

Now for anyone that didnt see the original ad I will give the the setup once more: All characters will be part of the Gotham City Police Department, as sworn officers. Because of this there are a few minimum requirements to builds, since I do honestly want realistic officers. XP will be handed out to players after I get a base character presented to me and it is approved. I don’t give out extra XP before general character creation is complete to have people prove they can make well rounded characters and avoid people from front loading. Not knowing if you’re getting 5 or 30 XP forces you to build a workable character out of the gate. If you want to be a detective and can’t make the minimum at creation, keep in mind the additional XP I will be giving out. As you can be a newly promoted Detective if you can meet the requirements at that point. Let me know if you will be planning to build for a Detective please. Also keep in mind I will most likely be paring characters as well. It is very likely that the two players I accept will be working together as partners on patrol or as detectives together depending on the applications given.





Allowed Source Books

World of Darkness Core, Dogs of War, Asylum, Armory, Tales from the 13th Precinct, Midnight Roads
If it comes from ANY other source book, I MUST approve it first.

Game Description:

Gotham's Finest
Batman has vanished. The Caped Crusader is no longer patrolling the streets of Gotham. Crime and corruption have once again begun to flood the city streets. Can the men and woman that walk the thin blue line of the Gotham City Police Department handle the evil that threatens their city? Will they risk everything to protect their city from becoming Hell on Earth or will they become part of the cancer if only to manage to survive?

cool. Always love to see long Personality descriptions.

Minor notes.

1) please make sure proper preqs are met. I don't mind concepts based off existing characters from other media. Matching them exactly however will probably not work well in this game. Unless the character themselves in an officer.

2) Kristen Bell is already used as a NPC photo. Not a major concern but could be confusing if said NPc comes into the scene and I decide to post photos

Nah, using it as a framework. Throwing in firearms as a focus automatically pushes it away from the "lighter" character of the show into a grittier reality. The core similarity being the theme of using social skills to deal with the criminal element more and get around things. That and a PI background dovetails perfectly into a detective position after a deputy internship accompanied by a psychology major and criminology minor. *shrug*

No worries, I'll find another pic I like, lol.

@Ryfte - Firearms/Brawl/Athletics need to total 5. I think the larceny dots will need to wait for XP later.

I also need to know what allies/contacts you have specially such as City Hall, Hospital, whatever

Okay... I shifted her much more towards firearms, lol.

Kicked firearms to 3 and her merits are now...

Allies (gun club) - 1
Fighting Style (combat marksmanship) 2
Striking Looks - 2
Sworn Officer - 2
Technophile (firearms) - 2

So she's they type of girl that has books about guns and hunting on her coffee table, a gun room, etc.

My kinda girl.

Only other thing I see is Health should be 6 dots instead of 7 since you didnt raise any in Stamina. And a spec to replace the lockpicking that was dropped. Otherwise looks good now. I will get you a private thread up in a minute so we can nail out XP and any equipment concerns.

I threw in a "first kill" blurb at 16, heh.

Edit: And dropped the health as you noted. I missed that, lol.

Its good. I like the PI background it opens up options for me to use some more NPCs for interaction with the characters. Always a bonus for me. Private thread is up now.

Went with Joe from Eureka as the picture for her instead of Veronica, lol. You didn't happen to use her for an NPC already did you?

Deputy Jo Lupo? aka Erica Cerra? Not that i can recall. She should be fine
