Detroit Rock City. Motor City, Motown, the D.
Let me tell you about the murder capital of the United States. It's a dying city that's eating itself alive, filled with desperate people trying to claw out a decent living for themselves. The ones that live here are hard to kill - they're survivors.
Detroit is known for three things: It's the tombstone of the American auto industry, the city that sees the most murders in the country per year, and it's got a killer music scene. This place is dangerous and wild. It's the epitome of the concrete jungle...
...and you're about to meet some of its predators.
Mr. Shopping here.
After "The Ties That Bind", I had a couple of different story concepts that I wanted to run with. One of them turned into "Scars of Russia" while the other was a D&D game that's gone into a semi-permanent sabbatical (don't you hate it when that happens?) With time to focus on something new, I turned back to a place that's always inspired my World of Darkness writing - Detroit.
I touched on the city in my Vampire game but I wanted more. "Detroit Rock City" started out as an extended solo for a player who approached me after reading "Ties" here on RPG.net. She very bluntly asked me for a game, and who was I to refuse? I started working the solo into a campaign, and that's when Viskarenvisla got involved.
Jericho Marx and Sebastian Weiss are the stars of DRC. The game is set in December 2008, Detroit.
I run this game online and use a White Wolf dice rolling program to make sure nobody is cheating. I’ve compiled all that I have so far into a novel format for easy reading. You can tell our contributions apart because they're in turn-based order. I'll throw in names or colors later on when the two players meet up in the log. From time to time I'll suggest music for the scene, usually what I have my players listen to during the actual session.
This game is intended for a mature audience. Some politically incorrect slurs/viewpoints may be found within, but I assure you, these are the machinations of character and NOT, I repeat NOT any actual views.
Obviously this game belongs to my players and I - please don't reproduce it without permission.
