A new drug has hit the streets of Bellingham, WA called BM38, a potent injectable liquid that seems a lot like PCP in some ways, and a lot like heroin in others. It can cause intense feelings of euphoria along with increased strength, heightened perception, and more and more recently, violent tendencies.
It's thought to be supernatural in nature, threatening to cast a pall on the ongoing public 'outing' of supernatural creatures, not to mention it has the potential to unravel the civilized world as a whole. Where'd it come from? Who's behind it? How do you stop it? Find out!
We'll be using the Werewolf: the Apocalypse general rules and system for the game, but I've tossed out all of the mythology and setting provided by World of Darkness to instead set the game in Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series world.
You needn't have read the books or know a whole lot about the world to play. The basics are:
- Werewolves are made, not born (though the tribes and much of the werewolf powers still exist).
- The fae have been 'out' to the world for a while now, the werewolves are just starting to come out, and the vampires are being kept under wraps (heh).
- You won't be playing or interacting with any of the characters from the series (though they may be mentioned here and there).
Those are the very basics, and really all you need to play, but if you love the world like I do, hopefully you'll get a kick out of the game. :)
