    Small Supernatural Private Eye RP

    Would anyone be interested in playing in a fantasy noir detective story GM'd by me? A team of no more than five, at least one with some sort of "power," and at least one without.

    Now I know the premise sounds simple, but this will be a fully formed and functional mystery. Any questions about the setting or other details left vague? Or, anyone want in?
    Who am I? Oh, don't worry. I'm just the Entity of Greed. No, no, I don't want anything from you. I just want to help, in any and every way I can. No strings attached. Of course, you will owe me a favor. A big one, by the looks of this mess, but hey! What are friends for?

    Well you know I'm in. I'm just not sure I can start right off the bat. And, if I do, I would only be able to post during a limited time frame (after hours at work).

    That'd be great. For balance's sake, would you rather be powered or unpowered, and if the former, what supernatural ability would you prefer? Anything that would help you investigate would be ideal, think Devil Summoner, Phoenix Wright, Pushing Daisies, et al.

    Hmmm. I feel like there will be more "powered" people so I would totally be okay with an unpowered person. But I'm really quite flexible, as you know. So if there's a power you would love to see my play, I could and would certainly take on that role.

    I'm suppa helpful, ain't I? :3

    That's fine. But this IS a noir detective story, so if you wanna play off archetypes, that's perfect. Remember, Batman is a detective too, and having a bored billionaire with boy ward is also acceptable, although I wouldn't let you be quite so rich.

    However, these are not hard and fast rules. Character creation is as loose as you want it to be.

    All this being said, I'd be shocked if, for example, we end up with no femme (or not so femme) fatales.

    DC? Batman? Psh, plz! You know me and my love of all things Iron Man. If I were to rip off any character, it would certainly be him. Bwah ha ha <3

    And women of that kind, roleplay-wise, are the best. I have to say "roleplay-wise" because I feel that, if I'm not self-conscious, I could and do fall under that definition at times. Oops. /casual eyeroll here/

    But jeez, I have so many options. I haven't even decided if I want to be male or female yet. What kind of images will we be using to bring our characters to life? Drawings, 3D renderings, photographs? Perhaps that will help me narrow down my character's personality and gender. B|

    Comicwise, Iron Man is too political to appeal to me, although after the deal with Mephisto and the return of his alcoholism, he's a bit more interesting, though I still won't read him. But that's a moot point, as Batman's title is "The World's Best Detective," which would be why I referenced him as opposed to Spidey, Daredevil, etc..

    I would prefer photos or drawings, but... All I ask image wise is that they are black and white, so convert them to black and white. While it is noir, it's not the 1920's, so characters of all races, creeds, orientations are acceptable (contrariwise, your character is allowed to be a smarmy sexist, racist asshole and speak like Gatsby or Bogart, in fact the latter is encouraged).

    Not even a little bit; I'm basing the story around the characters so if you would PM or VM me and we'll build a character idea that'd be perfect.

    Yo, so I found this noir detective monster comic, considering maybe heading this direction (monster people), what do y'all think?

    It seems interesting, but I kinda want to keep my first character entirely human.

    I usually am. But this time I tried using tags such as #original #realistic and I found that. I'm pleased with the search B|

    Yup, he looks like a pretty PO'd PI. You know who he kinda reminds me of? Lamont Toucey from HINABN.
