Welcome to the NYC nightmare. New York Noir is a collaborative roleplay set in a world where the good struggle and the wicked thrive. Perhaps the seeds of this city were bad to begin with; these tangled avenues are blighted by crime, high-rising into shadows that glitter with unfeeling decadence. The cult of celebrity is more powerful than religion here, and cold authority forgets to police the concrete forest—provided your pockets are deep enough.
The dream is not tame.
And there are wolves.
In Noir, you will find hard-boiled detectives, corrupt officials, dirty damsels, cultists, and tarnished knights. If you’re lucky, you’ll discover in the virulent heart of the metropolis, someone of such rare-blooming innocence that they stun you. Such flowers were never meant to survive the poisonous fruit—perhaps they will succumb to the pressures of the city? New York is full of the vivid sensory; it is alive, erotic, and humdrum. And it is bloody.
Allow yourself to be seduced. You may well be saved.
