The Sins of the Night Seem Bright by Day
Film Noir. Everyone is gritty, debonair, sexy, and has a strangely appropriate name. We all know it, and if you don’t love it you’re probably a Red.
Sin of the Night is a story-driven adventure set in the scenic city of Santa Marina. Though I have the general story arch planned out, I hope to have it ‘evolve’ as the action progresses. For instance, if the Detective misses some vital clue I’ve laid out, or some lousy whore pulls a knife unexpectedly, the action could go in a completely new direction. What I’m going for here is some hybrid of DnD, Whodunnit mystery, and Choose-you-own Adventure. As such, there will (hopefully) be a good deal of comedy thrown in with the general sexiness and degenerate atmosphere of the Noir.
What I need:
I only need one other person to make this work as a roleplay, but the whole “Whodunnit” element wouldn’t be much fun. If I could get a group of 2-4 (possibly 5) other people, I think this could work quite well. Depending on what I get, the story and characters change around slightly, so we’ll see.
You are allowed to create your characters, almost freely. Each of them will have some constraints which will be given to you before we start; i.e. The Detective has to actually be a detective. Along with this packet of information you may receive some vital ‘clues’ your character is privy to. Whether or not to reveal them is up to you.
At certain times, I (as an NPC) will (for the story’s sake) attempt to maneuver your character. i.e. a Police inspector may ask you come in for questioning. You do not have to go along, but be warned of the consequences.
Your characters can die. I promise it will not be sudden or unpreventable. If this happens and you wish to continue in the story, I can give you control of a current NPC, or work with you to add a new character to the plot.
Mostly to be created by you. It starts, however, in the office of Detective, with the offer of a new case that promises intrigue and danger in the sexiest way imaginable.
Detective – The only role that really needs be in the story. The Detective can be male or female and will be chosen based upon who gives the best back-story
Damsel – This is the role I will likely be playing. (Unless there is a HUGE outpouring of people, then I’ll give it up and just do NPC’s)
Crick – (M/F) If played by a man, a ‘sidekick’ to the Detective. If played by a woman (Crickette?), this character also works as Detective’s secretary.
Others: Open to people, but I can play them as NPC’s if needed. Most of the information on these characters will not be revealed except to those who are playing them. Depending on if anyone shows interest these parts can be small or large.
Lilac – (F) The name is changeable, though flower-names only please. A woman of rather ill repute.
The Parents – (M/F) Mother and Father of the Damsel character. Can be played by one or two people.
Commissioner – The head of Santa Marina’s police force.
The Doctor – (M/F) A doctor. Of medicine, maybe?
If there is interest in this I’ll post more details (such as more on Santa Marina, or individual characters by request)
*Note, if interest is high and all goes well, there is a strong likelihood of sequels*
