The world is a fairytale come to life but there is no beautiful lands or noble knights, not anymore in the year 2017.
Corporations aren’t corrupted by the greed for money, but for magical essence and ran by a powerful creed of wizards and witches. The mafia is not run by families of criminals but cruel and intelligent elder dragons and their loyal and cunning lieutenants the dragon blooded humanoids, the drakeborns.
California is a free state, a city of anarchy and Marshall law. The perfect home for criminals and monsters. Unfortunately, all of that is about to change and nobody will see it coming. Vorric, a corporation has been slowly building their strength by recruiting mages and silver tongued negotiators, ready to make their move and claim order over this chaos. Lucas Pepperidge steers the wheel, a wealthy and young blood mage with ruthless determination.
They aren’t the only ones who want control, a powerful gang have been bringing in business through the black market you work for. Shra’Veneer, the emerald serpent, has her fingers in every illegal errand going and everybody working in shadows works for Shra’Veneer, even if you don’t realise it, and she doesn’t share her little kingdom in California, especially not with Vorric.
You tried to stay out of the tension between the corp and the dragon for as long as you could remember. Surviving as a black market smuggler to keep food on the table and a warm bed, you don’t need anybody else in this chaotic world but you and your pet and faithful friend, a hellhound with cybernetics. You can’t help but sense that this tension will turn violent fast, a war for territory in this little piece of hell, and you will have to pick a side whether you like it or not.
-Pick your race! Be the ever adapting human, the charming and quick witted elf, the technological geniuses’ known as dwarves or the intimidating and powerful orc.
-Become a street mage, a shadow rogue, a future knight.
-the iron age is over! Baseball bats and switchblades replace swords and shields, rifles and handcannons replaces bows and quivers.
-Will you choose to sell your soul to work for Vorric? Strike an eternal partnership with the emerald serpent Shra’Veneer? Or will you piece together your own movement to take down the two giants?
-Choose to be good, evil or neutral.
-meet and work with fellow shadow dwellers, anarchists, crooked detectives, drakeborns and business suits… Or work against them.
Inspired by Shadowrun, one of the best turn based games I’ve had the joy of playing. The only similarities will be modern age fantasy races and cyborgs. Lore, story, characters and everything else will be my own original creation.
Currently writing more NPC character sheets
