(I play the criminal 'femme fatale' figure in this game)
A neo-noir spiritually modern city plagued with criminal disease, and corporate corruption. Old town is a hot spot for criminal activity. That's always where crime never seems to surprise. The police have difficulty handling the kind of crime, and some of the characters that operate more frequently out of Oldtown. There's gangs there that aren't like other gangs. The kind of groups that do more then just upset the natural order of things. The kind that's made a name for themselves all matter of ominous ways. That said, there is more to these people, despite the very slim chances you'll ever get in attempting to figure that out. The gangs make their own law in Oldtown. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't. Since as long as anyone can remember Oldtown's been in somewhat of a silent war between crime and order that's begun to feel more like your every night through day routine.
As of lately though things have been more upset in the natural order of this crummy city then normal. Some say something big is about to happen, but nobody really knows what it might mean. People are running scared. Others are taking action in ways that's unlike their usual behavior. People are acting different, and fragile regulations among Oldtown's characters are starting to be overruled by someone, or someones, that's really making a chaotic mess out of what was thought to be the bottom of the cease-pool. It's been enough to cause a stir between some of the police and the gangs. It's because of this that there's some strange temporarily alliances are being made, under the agenda of more traditional contrary parties.
I was thinking for this plot the initial pairing would be an odd one. A criminal x detective sort of character with a overlapping problem that has them working together. Both characters would be acting outside their obvious jurisdiction, given they'd be working with someone who's often perceived as their enemy. Alternatively this could be a one time situation where the usual 'good' & 'bad' guys, find some common ground in something. However, all grudges and habits tend to die hard. The detective in this (YC) has been hot on the persistent trail of trying to take my character in for years, but she always seems to be one step ahead of him. Whether your character is a novice, a hardened veteran in their authority field, is entirely up to you. Regardless, he isn't used to her line (or her gangs) group of thinking, which has made tracking and managing them difficult. They are one of the primary strengths in Oldtown among the gangs after all, and they aren't like the hoodlums that push drugs, or mug people in back allies. Oh no, this group is something far more fiercely unsettling, as much as they are almost exotically beautiful. One should never let their guard down around them, as that seems to be the first mistake of far too many that have tried their lucky with them before. Furthermore, she has never cared to kill him because she always saw him as a sort of negligent admirer. She's an odd one, but she's also dangerous as well, and a great deal more intelligent then most might think.
I was thinking the role-play could start with tense terms. A potential kidnapping of a associate of the law is a big play, but right not my girl needs all the help she can get. With a bit of adverse discussion and dispute, these two work things out. The detective needs a lead that the police don't seem to be providing, and my girl is running out of time. After all, whoever is trying to play her group and the law, isn't going to be one waste time.
I was thinking these two could go on a sort of adventure together. A classic mischief and obedience butting heads at some common means of entwine that has them stuck working together to unchart something bigger then both of them. It's a game of cat and mouse with the usual candidates playing a much bigger game.
[♥]"The Dread Dolls" [Modern-esc, Gangs, Neo-Noir, Mature Themes, Crime, Extreme, Whatever else.] ★New!★
Gangs. Dystopian. A lawless world, and some real bloodcurdling anarchy..
I'm really just looking for a plot that deals with said things above, in a world that would be set after ours. More or less, something went down and caused a major fall out of society. It could be a mutant pathogen, or a nuclear accident. Etc, etc. Bottom line is the world is a really gritty place now controlled by two types of people. Number one, the gangs - and such roughened ludicrous gangs they are. Organized savages might better describe them. Number two, the few rich elites left in the world that saw the inevitable coming, and built a fancy little city (with a huge wall) in the middle of a former American wasteland. Nobody gets in, or out, of the city unless it's by appointment, and you can bet the gangs on the outer rim don't get many of those. There is a third group, although this third group are a more neutral survivor 'detachment' type. They have their own small society, but they constantly live in fear of the gangs, and the oppressive super society that overstates them, often using them as no more then outsourcing at the trade of 'charitable' defense of the new threats, and old, of the modern world. This middle group lives in a middle ground where living is quite difficult, as they find themselves between the dangerous outer rim, but beyond the safety of the more selective societies more grand defenses.
Anyway, my main idea here is to explore the sort of life these different 'gangs' live on a daily basis, and make some story that's based between two of these gangs, or between one of these other parties. The catch is these gangs aren't just your run of the mill survivors that sulk around a giant wasteland, that once was some kind of grand civilization. No, these gangs played a fair share in the demise of society, or so the rumors say. Rumors aside, they aren't helping the current world be a better place, as all they care about is their own survival. They are not your common criminal scavenger sorts. They respect loyalty, and they abide by a common goal. Each goal of each gang is different, as they have different principles, but none of them are the sorts of characters you'd want to accidentally run into. Why, well because they have a very interesting way of defining themselves. They epitomize themselves alike figures out of a horror movie. The end result being that they are nothing short of acting into the more unsettling mindsets that they've come to know. This freakish kind of living is reality in some places.
For the plot in specific, I'd like to work with someone who's open minded, and someone who might be interested in developing one of the other two gangs (the third can remain more partial and co-collaborative). There's more gangs then three of course, but these named three are the big dogs. The basic idea for the plot is the gangs don't exactly get along with each other, but every now and again some newbie, or anomaly, that just can't stick to the rules, decides they have an interest in another person, from another gang, or something alike that anyway. You can see where this might end up. How these two meet is entirely up to use to decide. There could have been a gun fight for turf. There could have been a rush to ransack a food cache, gone very wrong. Or we might even say it happened in a less climatically obvious way. Whatever the case, these two know one another, and one of them has some reason to be interested in the other. Maybe character a. saved character b. Despite being on entirely different sides of a conflict. Maybe character b. helped character a. get out of some sort of unfair predicament? Maybe characters a. and b. have been sleeping with each other the whole time, living a very up and down relationship while screwing over their own, as they try to find some sense of romance in the other, that feels anything but straight forward? There's quite a few possibilities, as I am just being general here.
Lastly I'd like to write with someone who wants something more then a slow 'life after civil society' sort of story. I can't get into stories like that. I find them very dull. I'd like to work with someone who might have an open mind to more action, theatrics, creative character building (in spirit of this more lawless and impartial world) and isn't squeamish with a fair share of bloodshed on the side, in making this game come to life. Ideally I'm looking for a story that's got a lot of grit, a fair bit of romance (even if it's more heated and difficult), and a fair bit of science fiction (of the more apocalyptic sort). I'm more or less limitless with kinks in respect to this more dark ideas (so long as they are more plausible for this kind of plot, and don't break any of my hard limits).
If this idea clicks with anyone, by all means send me a PM and I'd love to chat further about my thoughts for the game.

So who are the Dread Dolls? Simply put, they are an assortment of mysterious women that can exist as a large gang (or a smaller gang). The members within the club are all female and all wear eerie doll masks that leave their true identities undisclosed. Who these girls were before they put on these masks is unknown, but in the present, each of them has a unique and important name, that all plays a unique role to their more family oriented arrangement. Each 'doll' is more skilled and powerful then people suspect. These women have basically been made into killers, each one of them having different preferences for how they defend themselves and defend their sisters. They are extremely dangerous, and known for their sadist means of retribution among getting even, or worse with their enemies. They are also partially good at giving their enemies or opposition a very difficult time, as they are well organized, beyond the more anarchist feel they carry within their actions.
I play the Dread Dolls in a multitude of environments, and different depiction levels. Often I prefer them to exist in worlds where things are falling apart, or the world may have already fallen apart entirely. My ideas in correlation to this group can be found below. However, I'm not against working out almost any crime based plot with them. I will say that they fit best in Neo-Noir, or dystopian based environments.
Both stories deal with dark themes/mood/characters. Depending on who I play within this group may alter my approach to the plot, but all plots revolve around the same group.
1. The world is crummy place, but it's fairly modern in existence. Corruption runs rampant, and crime is at an ultimate high. The world (or at least our city) is spinning out of control and there's little being done to fix it. There's a lot of things going on, as the world inevitably is starting to collapse from the problem. Perhaps your character is someone who has hurt the dolls in the past? Perhaps they are apart of another gang that commonly feuds with this group? Or maybe your gang has just more recently discovered them? Maybe they are a detective who's trying to put some leads together on these eerie beauties that have been begun to rise around town and inevitability gets stuck in a weird almost intimate Cat N Mouse scenario with one of their more prominent characters? Maybe this groups actions are disturbing other common gangs, and criminals groups, as they find their place in the criminal underworld? Maybe your character is more of a vigilante, one who hasn't seen something quite like this before, and is adapting to the problem? Either way, one thing leads to another, and your character is led into some sort of danger by their meddling in the business of these porcelain beauties. I'd prefer to focus a single doll, while she leads some sort of conflict, or even weird game of cat and mouse, with your character. Perhaps she grows to like them? Or perhaps your character is naive enough to think that? We can elaborate on this plot further if it appeals to you.
2. I am a bit more tentative about this plot at the moment, but left it open for possibility: The other idea focuses solely on the idea of an FxF relationship. Your character is a victim, until her life turns around. One night she gets abducted by some anomalies. Perhaps your character is someone who's been abused, mistreated, or worse, and the dolls are looking to expand their family. It seems simple enough almost like an opportunity given the circumstances.The twist is the dolls are anything but soft and compassionate individuals, preferring to reform their members into new girls for the sake of making them stronger then whoever it was they once were. What that means is a bit more vague, as this group has all kinds of characters. Some of which seeming more relate, and other girls seeming much more unusual. This plot is focused on the descent of your girl from meager survivor of a cruel society into initiation of a life of unimaginable, and quite unsettling liberation. Maybe in discovering her inner darkness she might find more strength, or peace with herself?
Everything was normal (insert name of wherever it is this takes place) until one day the government announced it would be doing a full civil test with it's citizen in a specific city. For one month this city is closed off from the rest of the world for a full scale competition. This all sounds interesting, until you consider what this contest entails. While in the city for an entire month, all laws are overruled and subject to total absence. For that entire month the city enters a state of total lawlessness. You can bet not everyone wants to be there, but some people couldn't get out. Furthermore, despite the recklessness of this order, there is a catch. There are 'contestants' in the city. Contestants are people that signed up for this event specifically, and are considered 'players' in the game. The game involves surviving the entire month, while taking out other contestants in however means they see fit. As you can probably guess, this is not a friendly game. This is a game that brings out the utter worst in some of the least suspecting kinds of people.
With the city in total pandemonium the only way to grantee survival is to either play the game, or hope the game doesn't find you (which is unlikely). Among all the citizens the contestants have remained mostly secret, and limited in number. Finding them is difficult, unless one is willing to pay attention to this new gruesome reality around them. Additionally, these contestants are often known to cause a real mess in hunting for the others, sometimes being foolish enough to paint targets on their head by this more unsettling trademarks, as they fall in line with creating almost killer avatars of themselves. The prize is anything one could possibly wish for. Or so they say. The problem is that this whole situation has a lot of people showing their inner crazy, and that's made a common day modern urban environment, a battle ground for certain doom for the unwary, where not everyone is looking to play.
Using this concept our story would be about our two characters. Your character can be whoever you want, but they must be a contestant, just as mine own will be. For a while these two have been hunting other contestants, doing only what they need to because it's the only way to make this game end, and getting there has proven mind altering on it's own. Our story begins when our two contestants manage to track each other down, thinking one has an advantage of surprise on the other. Only it turns out both are hot on the others trail. This leads them to find themselves in a heated confrontation, one that ends with another contestant taking them by surprise. They have no choice but to work together to remove this other contestant, and they quickly learn that working together might be better off. They grow on each other quickly, despite their obvious reasons for doing what they are doing, and have chosen to do, but once they move further down the list will they return their interest back on each other, or possibly find themselves too closely entwined to go down that road? Maybe they've retained some humanity after all, but it takes the other to help them see it again. Either way the city is burning around them, and they both know that there can only be one winner of this contest.
A couple things to note
-If you've seen Purge/Hunger Games, it's kind of a mix of that.
- I'm looking for interesting character concepts. Characters that have inner darkness, and might wear them on their sleeve in benefiting off this twisted contest. I'd prefer to avoid generic naive types (unless they've developed from that sort), as this plot desires to carry a bit of a more macabre semblance to it, and who these contestants might truly be, beneath the faces they used to live by each day.
