[Interest Check] Roaring Twenties

Post by BrookeDi » Sat Aug 25, 2018 5:57 am

The RP: It's 1922, and the country is booming socially, economically, and culturally. President Warren G. Harding is President, the war has ended, and people are living. The story will take place in New York and will include politics, mob activity, prohibition, protests, betrayal, art, jazz, and more.

The story will most likely center around Wheeler Pharmacy, but I imagine additional settings will be available as needed. While they do sell milkshakes, medications, sodas, and more, the owner operates a side business. Although it isn't widely known, Wheeler Pharmacy does money laundering for the Italian Mafia. What people do know is the fact that the drugstore acts as a front for a speakeasy hidden in the back, and a primary seller of bootleg alcohol.

Character Creation: Characters who will frequent the pharmacy and/or the drugstore, employees or patrons. Maybe a member of the mob or two. Perhaps, two players willing to act as a police team trying to shut down the speakeasy and discovering the mob activity associated.

Additional thoughts: I think that once a week I'll post something to move the story forward. If I decide to do that, it would be the same time/day every week so that way everyone has at least a week to resolve whatever actions/mini story arcs, etc. that's going on. This could include small or large time skips and other methods of moving forward. I'm not sure how well that would work out, so if you're interested in the RP also let me know what you think about this idea.

I will post character sheets once I see that there are players who are interested.

What do I need from you: Just express interest, and we can get moving with OOC/character sheets/and writing!
