Imagine a quiet(-ish) town where everything appears to better than normal, a throwback to a more innocent age where everyone knows their neighbours and doesn't feel the need to lock their doors or put burglar bars on the windows. But being this facade is an extremely well organized and crime syndicate, this organization has done such a PR job they've managed to convince most people they don't exist, they've turned a town that was a wretched hive of scum and villainy into something that's closer to Leave it Beaver.
The quiet criminality of the town is going to be broken when a small group of bikers arrive in town and a plan is formed to displace the current crime boss.Inspiration from other media
If you took Banshee, Breaking Bad & Springbeakers and stuck them in a blender then that is the sort of feeling the game is trying for.
Welcome to Charles Springs
Welcome to the town of Charles Springs, population 13,478. The town was founded in 1783 and has seen a great many changes over the past two centuries, originally established as little more than a logging camp and trading post it was the discovery of natural spring waters in the hills above what is now Glenn lake by Edward Charles that gave the town it's name. The fortunes of both Edward Charles and the town were vastly improved as the 'perfectly clean and clear mineral waters' were sold to well-to-do New Yorkers as cure for everything. The Charles family owned most of the town which included building a mineral water bottling plant and the towns first paper mill, an industry that has survived in the town until the present day.
The town's fortunes and industries continued virtually unchanged until 1920 and the advent of prohibition, when Charles Springs turned into a hub bootleggers in New York State with the forests and mountains providing hideouts for any number of stills and store houses of Canadian imports. Along with the booming alcohol industry came organized crime and it has never been too far under the surface of life in Charles Springs. The rackets and the bosses might have changed many times since 1920 but there is no part of life in Charles Springs that hasn't been touched by organized crime at some point.
And right now another big change is headed towards Charles Springs, change that will disturb the current order and will leave everyone having to choose sides, a change that is riding into town in a cloud of dust, a cloud of dust left by....
The game is going to be freeform and will end up in the Extreme Human section.
The reason it will going in that section is because of the violence elements of the game and not because of any sexual elements.
Because this is a modern pulp game it shouldn't be a big shock if players end up good ol' knock down, drag out fights with all ensuing blood, bruises and broken bones which places it firmly in the Extreme section. However that doesn't mean that absolutely anything goes, anything that wouldn't be suitable for BDSM section has to be agreed on by all players.
