"Think Ghostbusters... but Sexier!" ~My friend, Pipe
Okay this is just an interest check so far, but I am looking for 3-5 people for a small supernatural game. The premise is, all of you will be members of the Spectre, Lycanthrope and Undead Termination Team, or S.L.U.T.T. for short. Your goal is to drive out to locations where there have been reported 'Bump' spottings.
Okay, so the idea I had is the players will be either new recruits or founding members (as the team is fairly new) who are basically specialists in creatures of a mystical persuation.
Background: Thirty years ago, the entire planet was covered in a strange sight... small lights, almost like fireflies, began to fall from the sky the world-over. The Starfall, as it became known as, had little effect initially, most people chocking it up to simply 'pretty lights'. However, more recently, people have started to change. Otherwise normal human beings who were exposed to the Starfall began to exhibit 'magic' powers, up to and including the ability to transform into some werecreature at will, limited and traditional Vampirism, even becoming full-blown undead. These are, by no means, the extent of the side-effects of the Starfall. The most notable side effect being that each person who exhibits these powers shortly go insane after initial development.
The governments of the world organized several taskforces, known as Spectre Cells, in an attempt to control the insanity that overcame those affected by the Starfall. These teams were sent in to assess the threat, and if one exists, to put it down. However, the Spectre Cells' jobs became complicated when modern science determined that the blood, bone, and practically every other part of these creatures, whom they began to call Bumps, could be used in beneficial medicine.
Which is where your team comes in. Headed by three siblings, the Spectre, Lycanthrope and Undead Termination Team specializes in the neutralization of Bumps, as well as the harvesting of the required objects. Your team may get a call for any number of strange requests. Werewolf Blood to purge impurities from the body. Vampiris Teeth, which can be ground into a healing salve which can cure most skin conditions. Even the coveted Banshee Semen, which when correctly applied, is the world's most powerful aphrodisiac. (Hey... not all medical advances have to cure something or heal something... Natural Viagra, anyone?)
This is what I've got for a plot thus far. Any ideas to sweeten it?
