They had not seen what hit them. They had just been about to give Beckie a little lesson for turning down clients, when the guy in the hoodie had showed up. He was not tall, he was not muscular, he had ripped apart Fernandez and Roger like they were made of paper though. Lou had put twelve rounds in the boy. He had stood up as if nothing had happened. That was when Lou had run. He had never run before. He had taken the next door, the stairs and ended up on the roof, finally catching breath and reloading his gun. Was the guy still there? Was he ... what was he? What did he care? Lou turned around and pointed his gun at the door. He would shoot his head! Yes. He would try the head. Without a brain he had to die, right? The door was open. Lou inhaled shortly, as he realized that he had closed it. "Hey! You got no idea who I am working for! You got no idea what kind of trouble you are in! Man, just leave and we consider this a misunderstanding, okay?" He looked around frantically. "What do you care about the girl? We would not have killed her! Just wanted to give her a lesson ..." He stood there and breathed. The voice came from behind. It was the voice of a young man. "By cutting her face?" He hurled around and there he stood. Lou could not see his face, but it was the same boy in the hoodie. "Man, it is business ..." "I know. And see who learned the lesson after all." The boy stepped closer and Lou pointed the gun at his head. A moment later Lou screamed into the night as he made his way down all the seven levels to the pavement. Up there on the roof stood the young man in his hoodie and looked down at his work as the working girls surrounded the smashed body of their "protector". None of them did anything to help him. His crusade had begun ... ________________________________ Villain ________________________________ Welcome to Villain, the game where you do NOT play the superhero. You won't even play anybody with superpowers. No, this time you play the ordinary guy or ... the villain. A criminal, a corrupt cop or maybe someone working for the organized crime. The city you live in is Detroit and the game will explore how the criminal underworld reacts to the new threat of a young man with extraordinary abilities appearing on the scene and suddenly making them the hunted. It was also be a Gangster story, as the arrival of this new player causes a considerable power shift in Detroit. The most powerful criminal organisation in Detroit is run by a man called Lindsay McCarthy, who has controlled gambling, prostitution, money laundering and arranged countless dirty real estate deals over the last few decades. His organisation is broad and has few rivals, as even the drug trade is reliant on his connections and protection. There are Gangs, outside organizations and so on of course. You do not need to be part of his Empire, but if you ever walked the dark side in Detroit you will probably have heard of him. ------- Characters You can play any character who is a criminal in the broadest sense of the word. You can also play anyone associated with crime in general. If you are high level or on the streets, a lieutenant or a foot soldier, a corrupt cop or even something else entirely is up to you. I believe the game will offer something for all of those. Even Cops, journalists, lawyers or politicians (good or bad) might make sense, as this story has a broad perspective on what our "hero" does to the city. It is not necessary you play a bad or evil person. You can be a hero in a city full of villains. Any shade of grey is welcome. You can have morale standards and a code of ethics. You can also be a psychopath or cold blooded killer. That is entirely up to you. ------ Character Sheet Name: Age: Looks: Nationality: Occupation: Short Bio: ----- 1. GM word is law! 2. No Godmodding or anything alike whatsoever ... 3. All CSes for approval to the GM. 4. This game will have a maximum of five players. If surprisingly more people submit CSes I will choose those CSes I feel most fitting. 5. I will update the game at least once a week (trying twice) and if a player does not respond to updates for some time I reserve the right to take over to move the plot along. 6. Character Death is not what I aim for, but it is a possibility. 7. You can control NPCs within reason, but not kill them (except permitted) or write them to solve all your issues. McCarthy and the "hero" are off limits. If there is any doubt what you can do, shoot me a PM.
