Gotham's Finest:

Gotham's Finest - Forum
World of Darkness

Game Type

New World of Darkness / Mortals Game


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.


Please post applications in this thread.

Character Sheet

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?

If what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, I should be a damn demi-god by now.

That actually sounds like it would work great, I thought of him as bouncing around until he found his "fit". Not really worried about what he was doing, so long as it was out in the field.

background added!

awesome Hex I'll have a look here shortly.

As for everyone else thats expressed interest... Comon' guys! Lots of people saying interest but not a lot actually being posted. I'm considering taking more than 2 people since I'm backing off some other games to primarily focus on the ones I'm running a bit more. However to do that I need more applications!

With more spots, then sure, posting app slowly... just fyi

@Hex - If you're done and happy with the character at this point I will go ahead and make you a private thread on the forums later this evening. We can hammer out some last minute details and additional XP. Then work on getting you into the game.

ya, I'm happy with him. As I get more into his mind I'll probably make some small changed, I know I'm prone to doing that. Of course I'll run any changes by you first.

I might be up for this. I was interested in the Promethean game up a while back but didn't have time to finish my app. A detective type huh? I'll stew on it this afternoon and see what I can flesh out, lol.

So this would be Ernest Dills partner huh? Another detective?

What about a slightly older "Veronica Mars" type character? Short, petite woman, approximately 23, father is a PI ex. cop etc. Actually model the structure on the show characters, lol. That way I can get "up and running" REALLY fast!
