BURNED CIRCLE – Recruiting for a Dresden Files RPG Game (Closed)
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but didn’t have the time to do properly. But, now I’m ready to get started.
Rule System: Dresden Files RPG (FATE based)
Needed Books: At least read over the FATE SRD here. the DFRPG book “Your Story” is a plus, novels or graphic novels are a plus as well
Number of Players: 3-4
Posting Frequency: At least every other day, I won’t be posting much on weekends
Dresden Files RPG
The FATE system is a fairly rules-lite role playing game, which DFRPG is based on. You can find out information about FATE by using online resources (listed below). You can also purchase the DFRPG in pdf form, although I think its worth the physical copy. Not everything is the same as pure FATE, and DFRPG adds a bunch of new subsystems like magic and supernatural powers, but you’ll understand everything that goes on in the game by reading the online SRDs.
I’m working on a rules primer, based on one I use for tabletop sessions, for anyone who isn’t familiar with the rules and would like a quick jump start into the system.
The Dresden Files is a series of fantasy novels by Jim Butcher set in the modern day. In the books, magic is a real thing, but well hidden from the view of the public. It is high on intrigue and supernatural, and the DFRPG captures the feeling of the novels very well.
This game will take place in the city of Atlanta, a travel hub with lots of people coming and going constantly, including the supernatural community. Things are always moving, and the PCs are thrown into adventures high on mystery and danger. The main focus will be on supernatural beings (practitioners in the art, creatures, etc.) who use the hustle and bustle to hide from prying eyes, while preying on the citizens. The PCs will be drawn into protecting those who can't protect themselves while stopping evil plots and uncovering mysteries surrounding the inhabitants of the city as well as some about the city itself.
The events of Storm Front are yet to happen. As time progresses, the events of the novels might occur, but that will just be background material with a few noteworthy world-changing exceptions.
Allowed Templates: Pure Mortal, Champion of God, Changeling, Emissary of Power, Focused Practitioner, Minor Talent, Sorcerer, True Believer, Were-Form, Wizard
Power Level: Submerged
I’m looking for PCs who are selfless heroes, those who want to change the world for the better and worry more about others than themselves. Once I see if there’s interest, I’ll post up character creation guidelines but for now keep in mind that I’m looking to run a very heroic bent game, not a mercenary game. PCs should also be able to move around in human society without problems.
You don’t have to use a template if you don’t want to; although I will closely look at anything you give me, no matter what. Character creation is going to involve the cooperative aspects of the DFRPG, with collaboration being an important aspect of character generation, so for now keep PC ideas to the basics. I’ll help anyone who doesn’t have the DFRPG with their character building. Trust me – FATE character design is not complicated.
In the DFRPG, the first part of character creation is city creation so that you have an idea about the setting while you’re detailing your PC. Therefore everyone will take part in city creation in at least a small part. I’ve got the ball rolling already, but it’s a collaborative effort. Everyone playing should feel like the city is their city.

Anyone interested post here with a very brief description of the kind of PC you’d want to play, maybe a template and a High Concept.
Once I have 3 or 4 players, we’ll consider this game on. At that point, I’ll post up more detailed rules for city and character creation.
I hope others read this and get excited about the prospect of the game. I know I am.
