The morning dawned clear and mild across the L.A. basin, and for yet another day America was the colossus that stood astride the world...tall sleek buildings, streets bustling with shiny new cars, military waiting around the world for orders.  Trillions of dollars moving like blood through the arteries of banks, fiber-optic networks, cash registers.  Just another day in the life. 

And as good a day as any for it to all come crashing down.

It was a story that began on the morning news with grainy, jerky pictures of two oil tankers ablaze...and a President who reassured the people all was well with the world while at the same time moving himself and his staff to an undisclosed, secure location.  It began with a case of law and order and mistaken identity spewing a hail of gunfire, and ended with burning cities and chaos.  For long ago, a hole that never should have been dug found a secret that refused to remain buried...

This is a modern game that will feature normal, everyday characters.  The game will include a touch of sci-fi...but only a touch.  There will be no death-rays, no warp drives.  The focus will be on mystery-solving, intrigue...and raw survival before, during, and after things fall apart.  For the world of the city was rough enough before civilization fell (which is when the game starts).  It gets rougher still.

Interested?  PM me, E-mail me, or, better yet, look my up on Yahoo IM at handle "pbemmaster".

Definitely freeform...die-tossing will be infrequent, and done by me behind the scenes.

Basically I'm looking for typical, everyday characters.  Secretaries, students, bartenders, surfers, cab drivers, teachers, etc.

Sounds interesting...

Allrighty then.  Looks like we're live then.  Now, how do I go about getting us a room on up in the nosebleed section where anything goes?  Start cranking out those characters.
