Dresden Files Game

Sigh...I have to beg forgiveness, I was looking at the wrong month when I scheduled this and as I work during that time slot on Thursday I have to reschedule.

Update: Definitely On for Sunday the 16th.

I would prefer to have game on Sunday as I like to have a longer time-slot to run in, but it will depend on the majority of players schedules so its not set in stone yet.

Here's the basic of the Setup of the Campaign I have Planned:
---
Blood in the Water

High Concept(s)
: The Happiest Place on Earth (Disneyland, sunshine and good times!)
& Old News is Good News (Positive Influences of the elderly population)
Trouble(s): Blood in the Water (Chaos in the wake of the Red Court’s destruction)
& What Lies Beneath (Supernatural and Secular Corruption)
Overview: Miami is one of the wealthiest, cleanest, brightest and most colorful cities in America, full of the beautiful and wealthy as well as the poor and the old. The Miami lifestyle and day-to-day living has been broadly influenced by a wide variety of cultures from Caribbean to Cuban and Puerto Rican cultures as well as the wealth of experience available to the many elderly residents who have retired to the area. Underneath it all lays a continually shifting and changing criminal and supernatural scene ranging from drugs and porn to the White Court’s struggling for control against both the Fae courts and the Merfolk who have recently emerged from the deep waters of the Atlantic. Intermixed with these struggles lesser practitioners, Voudoun priests and various Men of Faith and Knowledge struggle to survive the tides of violence all around them.
Timeline: The events of this Campaign take place shortly after the end of “Changes” and deals in large part with the destruction of the Red Court and its associates.


Themes:
Power Vacuum:
The destruction of the Red Court Vampires has sent shock-waves throughout the supernatural and secular communities of Miami. With the deaths of the Vampires that controlled the businesses many of the local businesses have been sent into a tail-spin as the former allies and minions have started scrambling for control and the formerly tenuous balance between the various power structures has been spun out of control as they too scramble to pick up the reins of power that have been left behind. Many of the Red-Court controlled businesses have likewise suffered from a rash of fires and other random acts of destruction. These power struggles will form another major part of the campaign.

Missing Persons:
Along with the destruction of the Red Court power structure many other people in the secular and supernatural world alike have gone missing; many are suspected to have been suspected been at least semi-infected by the Red Court or were known allies that have been hunted down and killed by the former rivals of the Red Court. Amongst the missing is the Grey Warden, the only White Council representation in Miami. No Grey Wardens have come yet to investigate his disappearance, though any White Council wizards in town are free to investigate and if a Player Character wants to be a young Warden then the missing Warden is, or was, his Master and Teacher.

Martial Law:
In the wake of the Chaos that follows the destruction of the Red Court, Crime has seen a rapid and noticeable rise. This is not an unusual occurrence in major cities across the world, but given the suddenly increased influx of drugs, weapons and the sudden lack of control over the organized crime operations previously controlled by the Red Court has gotten severely out of hand. With the sudden and mysterious death of the Mayor the deputy mayor has stepped up to take his role and asked the Federal Government for assistance, which has been rendered in the form of activating Florida National Guard units to provide additional aid as needed and the Coast Guard has likewise seen an increase in activity.

Yes there are 2 each of High Concept and Troubles...just too much going on to NOT have two each! Not to mention some Hidden Themes etc...
---
I will have some Themes and Faces for the meeting, more should be made by the group to help flesh out the city some more.

I had expressed interest in playing, but is there going to be room for me? If I can't jump into this game as a player I'm going to GM that Dark Heresy game that I mentioned on here awhile back...I would prefer to play (due to workload) but I'm down to do either.

I suggest at least showing up.

Speaking candidly, I am only interested in playing if we have the option of starting at a submerged power level.

If there are too many people to sit in on the first game, we can probably make two groups. Perhaps one of the games can start with a higher or lower refresh or something.

I'm not as concerned with power level as I am with availability...Sunday absolutely does not work for me. Mon-Thurs nights are about all I have.

^^^ That's too bad. :(

Maybe if we have an excess of people and they need another player something could be worked out.

My power level issues have been put to bed. I've talked to both potential GMs now (I think) and it seems like everyone would be willing to work with me and my quirks. :)

The best thing about doing this at dragon's lair is that the squid jerky I love is sold right next door. :)

I hear that, I'm hooked on Mushi cakes. I highly recommend you give them a shot.

Just as an update; my game is full, in fact a bit over-full as I have 8 People currently.
