    About the adventure

    A Monster of the Week Game set in DC Comics' Gotham City. Batman is missing and word has gotten out on the streets of Gotham. It is up to the Hunters to save the city, and possible the Bat himself. Classic villains will be present, with plenty of chances to explore the city and learn clues to unravel the mystery. High amounts of story telling and role playing opportunities. Combat will not require maps and crunch, rather focusing on free form and narrative story telling. GM really loves the Rule of Cool (if your dice do, that's another story).

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players will need a mic, a webcam would be preferred, but not mandatory. An understanding of Michael Sands' Monster of the Week is optimal, but not necessary. Bring to the session 0 an idea of a character, and how they will fit into a standard Gotham game.

    What I provide

    I will be bringing a safe environment for players to play in, in my own dedicated Discord server for these games.

    Gameplay details

    I will send out a questionnaire to get a list of lines and veils from players so I can compose a document of lines and veils from the players. A Session 0 will talk about the setting and where we would like our story to go, and specifically where we would not like it to go. Players may message me in game if they would like to avoid a topic as it comes up in game, or simply use the X,N, O method. We will also utilizing "pausing" and "rewinding" and "Fast forwarding" options.
