So this would be a game about facing a conspiracy to take over the world, in the modern world where the magic is coming back and with it, elves, dwarves, halflins, orcs, goblins, and so on. I'd like to have a mixed party (some humans and some non humans).
Under the cover of a private security firm, DragonClaw Security trains and maintains a police of sort for the supernatural. And you might just catch their eye and be proposed a nice job with plenty of benefit and on the job training opportunities... But first, how your story started...
If you are human, it was just a normal night with you eating out at this new medieval fantasy themed fast-food chain. The food was said to be pretty good for a cheap fast food, and indeed it is, with options for vegetarians and vegans, as well as more healthy fare than most fast food if you're willing to go for things less tasty than greased fries and bacon burgers. Though the usual options are still there. Then the place gets robbed by little people who trigger the alarms and start to try and kill everyone inside. You help protect the patrons, though some of them aren't as helpless as the masses... Is that a sword? Was that a... Lightning bolt?!?!? Did the bodies of the little people just disappear?!?!?
If you are not human (also known as a shadowkind)... You were living an adventurous life in a world full of magic, where battles are solved with swords, spears, maces, bows, crossbows, black powder guns, and spells... Orc pillaging bands, goblin raiders, you dealt with it. And one day, you just woke up in a whole different world. You remember closely held beliefs and memories of things you have personally experienced, every other historical or geographical information is just a blur... (Say, unless you have personally met the king, you don't remember anything about him.) This world is full of horseless carriages, always full of noise and light, and full of strange tools made of a magic you have never seen before... You find out soon that you legally don't exist, communities form in the slums, taking in the new arrivals and protecting each other... But some things never change. Orcs robbing stores, goblins smashing closed shops and looting everything shiny... You have become a mercenary of sorts, flushing giant spiders' nest out, rescuing hostages from goblin street gangs, and that night, you were enjoying a nice treat (like some "ice cream", it's very tasty) at the Prancing Pony. The humans there call it a "fast food" and they are right, food is served very fast there. But more importantly, it is where every mercenary hangs out, just like the taverns where you came from, so gossip and employers can be found if you know where to look... And goblins were stupid enough to try to rob the tavern, full of mercenaries, and trigger an alarm spell. They decide to kill everyone inside, so you have to protect the people. Most of the humans seem not to be really combative, but a few of them are actually putting on a good fight... And like every one of those who come from your world, the bodies of the dead are reclaimed by their world... Most humans seeing this try to convince themselves that it didn't happen. You know they don't want to accept magic as real. But a few are willing to accept it.
So if I could find 4 people willing to post 3 times a week that would be great. I'll post details for character creationlater, but I would like human characters to be "virgins" around magic and shadowkinds characters "virgins" around modern day technologies. Not to say they can't learn and become experts just that they don't start with the knowledge. :)
