Would there be people interested in a small group game in a noir setting?
I'm thinking 1940s, shortly after the war.
The exact plot details can be discussed, but as far as characters are concerned, I'm thinking private investigators, sassy and smart secretaries, femme fatales, gangsters, coppers (both dirty and honest ones), perhaps an idealistic female newspaper gal (trying to break the glass ceiling), ...
Or any other archetype which would fit into such a setting.
I would like a lengthy and collaborative brain-storming session in terms of the actual plot before I get started. Naturally, I would need some interested parties before I can start with that.
So feel free to state your interest in here (as well as possibly what character archetype would most interest you).
If you want to know what atmosphere I am hoping for, then think of these features: "Double Indemnity", "The Naked City", "Where the sidewalk ends", ...

[b]Role:[/b] (a short description of the basic character archetype, e.g. "weathered detective", "night club chanteuse", "gangster moll", etc.)
[b]Background:[/b] (a short bio of your character, I would like at least two paragraphs, somewhere in the 300-400 word range. More is allowed. Just give us enough to get a feel of who the character is supposed to be.)
Some extra info: I would start this game in the Spring of 1946. The war is over, though many G.I.s only recently returned from the conflict. Conversely, many Rosie the Riveters only recently (and some quite reluctantly) went back to their lives as stay-at-home housewives and/or mothers. In terms of the Los Angeles crime scene, Bugsy Siegel is still alive (though he would only be around for another year at this point).
Please send your character sheets to my PM inbox for approval prior to posting them in this topic. Thanks!
