While I'm in a holding pattern with the other new folk, I thought I'd spark up a quick Noir RP. If you're a noir fan, please feel free to pile in! I'm imagining this as a small group scene, but if I get one other player only, a nice short story will do.
I'll start, so I'm gonna grab an off-the-rack PI Sam Spade kinda guy. Feel free to chime in as femme fatale, client, femme fatale client puppetmistress (woohoo!), competing PI, villain, whatever.
No profiles needed. OC talk follows text (in brackets).
First person POV from your character, please.
Feel free to start a non-intersecting thread (eg: mafia kingpin going about his day to day) with a view to meshing narratives later. Feel free to world build. It's generic noir at the moment, so by all means add a steam punk or urban fantasy or whatever twist if you want to! Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law when it comes to worldbuilding.
And, of course, noir is ripe for spoofing - tropes and characters and whatnot. Feel free to take this not-seriously :) I've already added extra cheese.
I'm going with a bit of slapdash tone and grit to set things up, but feel free to take this from setting to scene quick as you like. I'm here to just go with it.
Cheers! I link forward to playing with you.
