OOC: Game Concept
So what Iím thinking right now is a urban W:tA game set in Oakland, CA (since thatís the urban city that Iím actually familiar with). Iím planning on starting with an item acquisition/heist/bodyguard gig (details to follow), but I want to see what character concepts yíall have first--sometimes certain character concepts throw the plot in whole other directions (you know who you are ^_^).

EDIT: also, I should warn you that I've been listening to a lot of Night Vale.

Children are being kidnapped. Evil humans? Agents of the wyrm (bsd/fomori)? Or is the pack seeing how everyone else views it when kids are abducted for initiation rites?

Werecrocs in the sewer?? New ally? New foe? Something worse?

Kinfolk have joined a neo nazi hate group. Can they be saved? Who or what funds the group?

Alameda naval base gets a new owner at the same time Rokea show up. What's the connection? Can the rokea be convinced to not commit whole sale slaughter on the island?

There is a large wave of fomori showing up. What's causing it? New drug on the streets? New tattoo shop only open at night and specializes in body modifications? Or are people feeling so hopeless in the new WoDBay Area economy that spirits can possess much easier?

Camarilla/Sabbat (or any faction vs faction like brujah vs ventrue) turf wars are threatening the Veil, how does the pack respond?

Some powerful fetish has shown up in the hands of an enemy. Can the pack retrieve it? What happens if another pack is trying to get it too?

Kinfolk becomes fomori, can they be saved?

Pentex subsidiaries are taking control pf all the local SPCA and animal control departments. Stray animals are reported at an all time low, but what happened to them?

Chinese and Japanese millionaires are buying up Bay Area properties and using them as vaults for expensive artwork and historical artifacts. So are Kindred of the East. Go from there...

Red Talons want to set all the big predators free from the local zoos.

Celebrity chef feeding banes to customers. Can the pack convince Zagat to reduce the restaurant's rating? - adding this before we forget it.

BSDs want to start a caern in the Oakland hills.

Worse, the hipsters are ferectoi-formori. they are gentrifying the poorer neighborhoods creating tension that results in greater and more powerful banes flooding to the umbral reality of the area...converging...growing... MELDING...
