Leashed-Witch Looking for a Hunters Game
Leashed-Witch Looking for a Hunters Game

Hey everyone, I'm hoping to find a GM who would be willing to run a monster/witch-hunter style game with a slight twist.  To be specific I'm hoping to play a version of the Boxed Crook trope taking the role of the 'leashed witch' to a group of hunters.  Good examples of a similar idea might be Witchhunter Robin, where the Craft-user members of the team are kept under close watch for signs of them going too far and becoming Witches, and even Hellboy to some extent, though that dynamic is a little more amicable than what I'm envisioning.

Obviously this sort of story trends toward darker subject matter and would probably require a Mature or Adult game depending on how the player group goes.  The nature of the scenario is such that there would be a fair amount of in-character tension between the hunters and the leashed witch.  I consider that dynamic to be rife with potential for interesting interactions.

As far as system goes I'm fairly flexible.  I'd prefer something with a bit more crunch to it than Freeform, with nWoD and CofD being personal favorites though I'm open to anything really.  Just running as a mortal with a few of the supernatural merits from Hurt Locker in a party of tier 1 or 2 Hunters could capture the right feel fairly well I think. I'm also familiar with Fate Core and Dresden Files Accelerated, either of which could be a good fit.  More esoteric options might include Hero (I have 6e), and CJ Carella's Witchcraft.

Ideally this would be a game with other players taking the role of the hunters, but I'd be happy to talk over a solo version as well.  If anyone is willing to run such a game or think it might be fun to play as one of the hunters feel free to chime in!

Still interested in playing through this concept, and since it came up with one offer, I will note that I generally prefer to play male characters.

I'm not sure if this would interest you, but there is a long-running 2nd edition oWoD game that your character might be able to fit into with some tweaking. There aren't any real Hunter PCs, but there are plenty of other types of supernaturals in the game that could be your Handler if you'd like. If this is something that might interest you, I'm happy to link the game. If not, I wish you the best of luck in finding what you want!

Thank you for the invite, I'd also like to keep looking for a chance to try out the full hunters version if anyone is willing to run it!
