Mysteries of the Metropolis
The basic setting for the portion of the game at Jungle Jake's is in the world of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files around the time of Blood Rites (Book 6).
We are using the The Dresden Files Role Playing Game System. For those that know what it means we are currently at the "Chest Deep" Power Level (8 Refresh, 30 Skill Points, Skill Cap Superb). Regular game players have a few more skill points then just Chest Deep but it should not be too big a gap.
For those confused by all of that, it means that the game is effectively around the Middle -Lower end of High Power Level (Approximately level 9-12 if you use Dungeons and Dragons as a frame of reference)
Currently we meet at the Jungle Jakes Hobby Store in Hinesville Ga Wednesday nights around 6-8:30 pm.
We currently have a GM and two consistent players with a sporadic 3rd and potential 4th. However we could use another Consistent Player and may be able to support two more consistent players if they work together to develop a story and some connection to each other so that plot does not have to be developed for two individuals.
Anybody interested in playing is welcome to drop by and spectate or message me here with questions. However be advised the location does have a $5 Per Game Table Fee after the first game for any particular individual.
Their is a lot going on in the background of the world but how much is known would depend on the Character Concept.
Their are two main games being played from the base setting of the Metropolis.
The primary game is the one set in the Metropolis some where between 2010 and 2020. The Information above is predominately related to that game, which is the that takes place at Jungle Jake's. The reason for the X in the date is because their is some temporal anomalies related to the city and all that character's from the card shop game can recall about the date is that it is sometime after 2010 but not yet to 2020.
The time line probably disagrees with the time mapped to the part of the Dresden Files series this game's events take place in but I am not concerned about exact mapping to the books.
The other game is predominately set at a fictional school for unusual students called Lore Crest Academy. The School moves around but is located on a Flying Island about 30,000 feet above The Metropolis at the time the game begins. The Metropolis also moves around but is about an hour away from Phoenix Arizona when the game begins.
This portion of the game draws on Influence from the Traveler's Gate Triology by Will Wight, specificially the setting of Valinhall is from this book. More information about Valinhall mechanically is in this game Wiki. More about the world that was the original source for it can be found at http://www.willwight.com
This game is generally played at whatever restaurant happens to be convenient to the majority of the players at the time the game is scheduled.
Stuff specific to the the game at Lore Crest will be marked with the game year, which begins at 3080. However the year is subject to change over the course of the game. This game has a strange relationship with the Dresden Files series. Some of the events up through book 14 have occured but others have not. Although this detail is only really relevant to those that know the books and most of the players in the game are not familiar with them.
