Pulp Adventures: Life in 1920s Miami and Beyond
Welcome to Pulp Adventures: Life in 1920s Miami and Beyond

This is a moderated roleplaying game dedicated to the Pulp genre, in the manner of Indiana Jones, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Nero Wolfe, the Supernatural, The Mummy, and the Shadow. We are focusing on story quality over rules.

The moderator, aka GM, is in charge of NPCs, plotlines, scenes, and scene changes, and success determinations for PC actions, it is a moderated game. It is NOT D & D.

It has become more of a freeform game (after the character generation) and imagination is encouraged. This game has a plot and sub-plots, and will feature action, adventure, derring-do, swashbuckling, weird science and cliffhangers. But we stick very close to the nature of the character details. And we stick very close to historical accuracy.

So now that you have some idea of what's going on, you can PM me for a RTJ if you like the idea.  The game is currently set in June 1925 in Miami, Florida. And the PCs will be normal human types with something extra about them, something that sets them apart from ordinary folks, some skill, item, or advantage that makes them 'special'. They are Advanced Class characters in the Pulp era, but not superheroes. Just 'special', in their own way.

This game is about the Good Guys & Gals (and the sort-of-borderline guys & gals).

The GMs will be posting to the game at least twice a week, possibly more often if we can manage it, so please be patient if you're a rapid-fire poster.

In a Resource thread, I have compiled a host of historical information about 1925 and Miami. I try to keep the technology and knowledge level based upon as much historical facts as possible, with a little creative license along the way. You may want to look through the Resource thread for ideas. There is also a thread about Generation of characters and various Character classes available. There are additional characters in the storyline that are available to play. This is a pretty flexible setup and I hope it will be a fun game.

If you want to play a character right out of the 1920's, this is your game!
