The Dresden Files RPG Las Vegas- Dumb Luck IC/OOC

Dresden Files Las Vegas PBP

What is this?
This is a Dresden Files RPG campaign set in the city of Las Vegas after the Changes book of the Dresden Files series. I was inspired to do this after reading through the preview of the Paranet Papers which provided all of the details on Las Vegas.

Can I play?
Absolutely, in fact I’m hoping to get four players who can give. However I do have two requirements for anyone looking to play in the campaign. First, please have a copy of the Dresden Files RPG book Your Story which will include all of the rules you’ll need to know in order to play the game. Second, please download the preview chapter of the Paranet Papers which provides all of the information about Las Vegas.

Character Submission Guidelines
Anyone can express an interest in the game, but whatever you do don’t submit a character concept. I’ll choose players from those who are interested and we’ll work out the characters then. I will let you all know that this though, this will be a Chest Deep campaign so you’ll have plenty of options when it comes time to create your characters.

Posting requirements
In an ideal world I'd like people to post once per day, but I realize that isn't always possible.

Three things you should know about Las Vegas.
1) The Unseelie Accords are not binding there. Yeah.
2) The White Council rarely sets foot there because of the inherent senses of wrongness about the place.
3) There is a presence that dwells beneath Las Vegas channeling the power of the collective sins of the city into, this is the price it demands in order to maintain the seal on something far worse. The last time the seal failed the surrounding area was scorched into a desolate ruin. We call it Death Valley.

For the moment I've included some information about all of the major themes/threats, faces, and places. Notice there's still plenty of room for us to tweak Las Vegas to add our own creative touches, which is quite nice. I'll wait a week before choosing players just to give folks plenty of time to check their schedules.

Themes/Threats
Theme: City of Sin
Aspect: Nobody Escapes Temptation
The Idea: Regardless of its source, Sin City is fill of temptations tailored to your every desire- sex, money, fame, even doing good. You can't walk down the street without rolling the dice.

Theme: Big Risks, Big Rewards
Aspect: All In or Not At All
The Idea: The bets the city cares about are the last few bucks in your pocket that separate you from homelessness, or the raid on the vampire den that your entire cadre goes on, knowing it could be the trap that gets you all killed.

Threat: Chaos In the Dragon’s Wake
Aspect: Unavoidable Collateral Damage
The Idea: The Dragon used to keep things under a perverse kind of control. Accepting that a certain amount of in-fighting was necessary, he did a good job of providing an adequate supply of sin to the demon without letting the fight break out into the streets. Now that the head has been cut off the beast, there's no telling how ugly it's going to get; the worst par is that the victims of these fights are everyday people being swindled, sold, and sometimes slaughtered as part of the factions' disputes.

The Balance of Power
The Status Quo

What is the mundane status quo?

The dragon’s passing has gone unnoticed by most mortals living in Las Vegas, but that is slowly changing. As the delicate balance the dragon had maintained begins teetering towards chaos all the strip shows and free buffets in the world won’t be able to distract them from the war going on all around them.

What is the supernatural status quo?

With a major power vacuum opening up in the city virtually every faction is moving to fill the void left by the Red Court.

Movers and Shakers

Who is In the Know? The White Court, The Winter Court, Wyldfae, The Summer Court, LVPD Special Vice Unit, Some Mafia Families, Servants of Ishatr, The Cowboy
Who is In the Dark? LVPD, Human Traffickers, Criminals

Who Wants to Maintain the Status Quo? Red Court Flunkies, Human Traffickers, Wyldfae
Who Wants to Rock the Boat? Winter Court, Servants of Ishtar, LVPD Special Vice Unit, Summer Court, The Cowboy

    I'm super down for a DF RPG game.

    Should we float character ideas at all (not making them, just ideas) or wait until you pick players? E: read that line wrong. woooops
    I snagged myself this is a late birthday present to myself. Maybe I should read it now.

    Just because I know people will want plenty of time to read through the information on Las Vegas, and possibly refresh their memories about how the Dresden Files RPG works I'd like to restate that I'll wait a few more days before choosing players. In fact the announcement won't be made until January 6th so you've got time.

    You should read Craig Schaefer's Vegas trilogy and steal gratuitously from it if you want ideas of ways to use Vegas as a supernatural backdrop.

    Three?! Man, I don't know if I could narrow it down past ten (Grave Peril, Dead Beat through Changes, Cold Days and Skin Game).

    Seriously, books 7-12 alone each had at least one amazing scene I don't know that I could cut.

    It isn't easy, but I manage. That said I do agree that there is at least one amazing scene in every Dresden Files book that I would be sad to see removed from the series as a whole.

    In terms of world.building there are two things I love about the Dresden series - a) the "physics" of magic are just right to make Dresden powerful without feeling Superman-y and b) the way decisions have consequences. Also, gruffs.

    Once I get a response from everyone indicating they are still interested we can get started on character creation.

    Holy crap. I was honestly expecting to be a spectator on this one, with all the great people interested.

    I'll start looking at some character stuff.

    We're reading Rifts. You should too. You know you want to. Now With Ninjas!

    They tried to bury us. They didn't know that we were seeds. 2018 Midterms. Get your shit together.

    Just a few notes while people are throwing around ideas for characters. For obvious reasons Red Court Infected won't be an available choice. Sorry.

    Also keep in mind the White Council rarely sets foot in Las Vegas. As that is the case anyone with the high concept Warden of Las Vegas will have a huge neon target on their back. I applaud those who give me such easy ways to put their characters in the crosshairs, but I do want to give fair warning.

    Las Vegas is also a haven for minor talents, those who have violated the laws of magic, Wyldfae, and other misfits.

    The White Court is also big here and various Houses are represented to varying degrees.

    What are the chances we could swing a live session for brainstorming characters out-of-thread instead of waiting on posts. Not all of character creation, but just throwing ideas out and making connections before we hammer out details? IRC, Steam chat, Skype, something like that?
