"They call it New York, though I don't see anything new about it. Just another cesspool for the hopeful and the desperate. Which am I? I a little bit of both I guess... I have to be, to accept this assignment. My editor thinks I can look at this city from different sides of the spectrum. Discover the light and darkness that dwells in this city that never sleeps.
Arriving by airship gives me a good view of the city. Always blanketed by a light fog called Aether, skyscrapers going through it like spikes. From a distance it seems peaceful but as we drew closer it is bursting with life. Carriage pulled by horses share the streets with contraptions they call "Aethermobile". More like loud smokey bastards to me. Though I cannot deny this city's advancement in technology, being able to use Aether in machines goes beyond most people's imagination.
Crime however, has always loom over this city like a shadow. There are whispers of a syndicate known only as the Top Hats, who is unofficially, governing this city after rising from all other gangs that litters in its alleys and back streets.
I look at the city as it seems to swallow us whole as our airship prepare its decent, I prepare for my own..."
Think of Steampunk - GTA - Batman Animated Series, where players start off as Normals (non-powered people) and the GM, through story telling, turm them into Powered and they have deal with it however they want.
Suggestions and comments all welcome. Thanks.
Glad to be back and seeing this board is still up and flourishing.
More power to the Boards!
