It's 1924, and the Florida coastal city of Miami is growing at a rapid rate. Fueled by new arrivals and an influx of money, business is booming. Especially the illegal ones because the Prohibition Act of 1919, meant to make the nation a dry one, only made it more of a thirsty one. Moonshine, bootlegging, speakeasies, and a big appetite for having a good time meant that crime certainly paid and paid well as the criminals moved in to rake in the profits. It wasn't called the Roaring Twenties for nothing.
Here is your chance to step back in time and roleplay with other fans of this fascinating era in the American experience. A wide range of roles is available. Gangster, copper, flapper, news reporter, private eye, Fed, thief, con man, gambler, jazz musician, nightclub singer, and just ordinary folk caught up in it all - all these and even more await you.
While it is a historical-based RPG, we are not sticklers for exact history. We are more concerned with making our own fictional stories than being chained to actual events. We are going for the atmosphere, not nit-picking the details. That said, we expect our players to try as much as possible to keep their characters, their possessions, and their attitudes fitting into the 1920s, not the 21st Century. Google is your friend if you aren't sure and always feel free to ask us if you have questions.
