-Plots To Tickle The Muse-I'm currently digging horror, extreme, and really gritty plots. Further ideas in likeness of these more vague themes can be found below!

(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.
[♥]"Criminal Corrections" [Neo-Noir, Bondage, Extreme, Whatever else.] ★New!★
I want to do a role-play based around three prime gang powers. Each gang would be more of the ominous sort. I'm thinking a Doll/Clown/Grim Reaper (sorts) theme to make some sense of the more abstract and unsettling almost horrific touch of story writing I want to tackle here. Each archetype would epitomize these three gangs. My own character would be a higher up from the Doll's group. Your character could be any character from either group. I'd also be open to considering a fourth, or something a bit outside this design of the archetypes I've mentioned here for the game. Although, I still want a really gritty, and harrowing sort of semblance to the game. These characters wouldn't be your average drug pushing cartels. The atmosphere come be either Neo-Noir crime drama (kinda Gotham/Sin City esc) or we could go the dystopian route where the world has been more or less undone by something. I'm happy to consider either approach, and keep my horizons open for possible flexible change.
I'm really just looking for a game about conflicting interest, violence, drama, extortion, extreme themes, and maybe some screwed up love - surrounded by a cast of really foreboding individuals. All these characters would basically have a killer semblance to whom they are. None of them would be sheepish. You're free to work around the inner qualities, touches and whatever else of who you might want your character to be. My end game is to do a role-play that's about these different groups going at one another, with some smaller outstanding problems popping up every now and again. I'd also prefer to write against someone with a more dominant mind set, that can respect my preference to playing switch types, as I am in many games that have me playing the main dominate role, and would like to explore the other in a bit more reluctant (my characters) address. I'm also all for making history with character A (mine) and character B (yours) to make a better connection between the two, beyond the differences of affiliation they might find themselves within.
Other then that I'm really happy to take the story in any direction one might prefer upon possible suggestion.
[♥]"Some sorta grindhouse/slasher game" [Horror, Extreme, Whatever else.] ★New!★
Bad girl rehabilitated. Or something like that anyway. A really (and I mean really) bad girl with a long history in gang related politics and criminal accounts, finally ends up losing her power. I'm unsure as to how, but for a while there's been a lot of interest in the subject of her gang. All girls, all really menacing, and baring a certain dependence to themselves. It's not the first time some interested people have tried to steal them for themselves. This time it's different though, as the queen bee of the gang finds herself in a very undesirable predicament. Among the political elite someone with enough competency has managed to claim her for themselves. The self proclaimed 'Devils Daughter' (among many other names) has been apprehended, but she isn't going to jail. Instead, she finds herself somewhere else, and in the hands of someone much more enigmatic then under a jail guards revision.
I'm basically looking to do a plot where my character (some notorious criminal with a feisty name) finally gets in over head. She gets stuck in a situation where someone manages to keep her confined, to the point where she's bought by someone with an interest in 'owning her'. This character wants to rehabilitate her in a sense, but not completely. It's more about taking the perfect mess of a criminal, and trying to turn her into something else. The city is going to the dogs, and what better way to fix it by reformatting some of it's more notoriety problems. They love her fire, her menace, and they want to bottle that for themselves. It's a long road ahead for a woman who's basically ruled a large portion of the streets for the last good few years, and finding her place in this new role isn't going to be taken very lightly.
I don't want to do a simple bad girl going good erotic kind of game. On the contrary I want that theme, just done in a more morbid sort of way. A story about a really nasty young woman meeting her maker in the form of the corrupt elite, in a city that doesn't grant much place for heroes, or overall decent folks. At least not decent folks without a really nasty closet case of darker secrets. I'd prefer this plot to run more in a mid to short term longevity.
I only say slasher since the general concept of the game would incorporate around a lot of NPC's (of less important relevance) getting cut out of the bigger picture. Puns aside, there's really a lot of ways to tackle this more generic idea. I figure the pairing to be able about a killer and their special victim. This victim might be a little more then extra blood on the end of a knife, as we might be able to add some sort of greater context to whole killers hunt of this particular victim. I'd really just be looking for a game with a fair share of bloodshed, extreme themes, and anything a bit more horrific that might fall in between. 'Horror-kink' is fine as well, given the context of the plot, and is certainly something I might like to explore. That said, I don't want a game that's solely about gore-tastic plot-less smutty nonsense. I say 'Grindhouse' in more partial term to be completely honest, because I'm not against a large quantity of these things, just so long as they don't extract the entire plot. If there's anyone who might be interested in this more tentative pairing then I'd be happy to further make plot work of the idea, based on those grounds of interest. I'm not against any particular cliche horror scenario either so please, if you feel intrigued by the idea of getting behind a horror-flick style killer, then by all means I'd love to play special victim in opposition to that.
