Free-Style Role-Play

Demon Hunters 2045

There aren’t any more countries, only monsters. Corrupt is the norm. There are no rights, only various levels of privilege. This is demons versus the cyberpunks.

The players operate as a team remotely, over the web, only a few, even one or none, risking the streets and deadly exchanges of martial law firearms. Everyone has a handle, an avatar, a cartoon impression of reality. All are ashamed of their bodies. Shun having anyone see them offline, exposed and frail. Your bigger fear is certainly not death, but Hysteria, insanity, mental collapse. No HPs, though, you are either in the action or out, determined case by case with each card flip of the Tarot events.

Are the characters high? Not enough to stop fighting demons. Maybe because they fight demons. There is no grounding context. Maybe in some forgotten life you were a doctor, professor, lawyer, civil activist working in the system. Not anymore. The civil system was a fantasy, illusion! See through the vagaries of consumerism and celebrity. Roam the city, avoid being punished for anarchy. Find the demon’s true minions and slay them. Kill the bosses too. Oh, is that all?!?

Free-Style Role-Play uses a Quick and Dirty system. The players are not going to always control precisely what happens in combat. Often the player selects a broad action, and the result is generated from a set of outcomes. Yes, there are dice rolls. Wouldn’t be a game without such.

Yet instead of rolling D20 and consulting the Hit Chart, you take actions in free-style fashion and compare your Swaggering and Divine Weaponry against the generated event. A Tarot Deck of 78 cards, major and minor with or without inversion, spawns the combat actions and often allows each player to improve his character’s abilities incrementally over the adventure.

What would you do for near limitless power? If you have an answer, you are not a character in these stories seeking redemption and salvation. You would not be an archetype in this game. The characters here would do anything to stop the demons from obtaining that goal. They would never seek to be that power-mad and driven to evil.
