The Slums of the Ripper, a chilling and dangerous ordeal.
Greetings, I am here today to propose to you a slightly different roleplaying experience than you are probably used to, that of mortal characters. What I mean by mortal is that their mere existence will be fragile for the sheer number of dangers and misfortunes, resulting in character deaths and maiming. Here is a small premise I came up with to try to make you see my way:
Life is difficult for those in the slums of Victorian London, no matter what others say, especially in the dark alley of White Chapel during the reign of Jack the Ripper. It is the first of May, and as the frost of the chilling winter leave the filthy streets of London, so do the relative security allowed from the unkind winter, and thus start a series of grisly murders, accompanied with even more, attracted by the scent of blood and misery permeating the London slums.
A pandemonium of fear and death was unleashed by the sole death of a lowly prostitute. Will this be the start of the end? Or will crime shift and change into a less destructive form? That remain to be seen, as a group of lowlifes, linked by pain, poverty and moral ambiguity, will try to survive the upcoming year.
Add to this black magic, necromancy and Promethean being and you get the Slums of the Ripper.
Now, we will all be in this together, and will be the judge, jury and executioners of who will survive and who will die, making some pressure for good showings and careful planning for us all if we want our creations to survive more than a sole sunrise. For this only a small number of players will be needed, as such power is better managed among a small yet like-minded group. Great planning and involvement in the OOC will be required of any who join, so I would like you to take a moment to see if you are ready to put some of yourself in this project.
Thank you for your presence, I hope to hear from you below.
