Womenís Murder Club IC
Iím a huge fan of author James Patterson and his Womenís Murder Club series has knocked my socks right off with every installment. The last couple of books have been quite of a let down, so it came to my attention that perhaps I could run a game of similar interests. If youíre not familiar with Jamesí WMC series, itís pretty good. Detective Lindsey Boxer of the SFPD solving crime.

Iíd likely run this free-form, with the player size from 4 to 6, taking place maybe 25 years since her retirement. Fabulous friends of Lindsey are Claire, the Chief Medical Examiner, Cindy Thomas, journalist of the press, and Yuki Castellano, Assistant District Attorney.

This would be an alternate timeline of the future where all characters from the book are either deceased and/or retired and will continue with all their children forming a new murder club and solving murder mysteries together.

Just checking for an IC. Thanks!

I love this concept, but my own lack of knowledge of the WMC series makes it difficult for me to definitively put my name down. I wonder if others might not be restraining themselves for a similar reason.

Well for reassurance, knowledge from the actual books would not be a requirement. This will be an entirely new cast of characters, solving murders with friends. The rating would likely be Adult, or mature depending how this IC goes.

I'm restraining myself because I don't know if it's a system game.

OP says free-form.

My bad. I don't assume the word likely as an indicator of a guarantee. I've on occasion been told both that it is, and that it isn't. Not knowing which might be part of my neurodivergence.

Nah, there's definitely room for it to be ambiguous.

In that case, I'd love to play this freeform or not, but it definitely sounds like there might be a bit more interest if this were a system game.

Do you have a system in mind, if there's more interest that way?
