    BURNED CIRCLE Recruiting for a Dresden Files RPG Game (Closed)

    This is something Ive wanted to do for a long time but didnt have the time to do properly. But, now Im 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 wont 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 youll understand everything that goes on in the game by reading the online SRDs.

    Im working on a rules primer, based on one I use for tabletop sessions, for anyone who isnt familiar with the rules and would like a quick jump start into the system.

    Game Description
    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.

    Player Characters
    Allowed Templates: Pure Mortal, Champion of God, Changeling, Emissary of Power, Focused Practitioner, Minor Talent, Sorcerer, True Believer, Were-Form, Wizard
    Power Level: Submerged

    Im 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 theres interest, Ill post up character creation guidelines but for now keep in mind that Im 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 dont have to use a template if you dont 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. Ill help anyone who doesnt 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 youre detailing your PC. Therefore everyone will take part in city creation in at least a small part. Ive got the ball rolling already, but its a collaborative effort. Everyone playing should feel like the city is their city.

    Recruitment
    Anyone interested post here with a very brief description of the kind of PC youd want to play, maybe a template and a High Concept.

    Once I have 3 or 4 players, well consider this game on. At that point, Ill 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.
