It's the late '40s. WWII is over, but the destruction and loss of human life has caused rifts beween the real world and an evil, dark world. Not only do you have gangsters to worry about, but supernatural serial killers. That's the realm you find yourselves in Capers Noir, a new RPG supplement up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
In CAPERS Noir, you portray a character with extraordinary abilities living in a world filled with nefarious criminals, corrupt cops, and creatures that lurk in the night. You join up with others to unravel mysteries and deal with the darkness, all the while building your criminal empire...or enforcing the law and bringing criminals to justice.
CAPERS Noir offers a complete 1940s Los Angeles backdrop that carries the CAPERS time line forward 20 years. It also includes new content that can be used in the CAPERS game with no modification required:
- Expanded character options
- Expanded rules for investigations and falling to corruption
- New powers
- Additional GM guidelines and tools
- Monsters that lurk in the night
- The world of dead things and decay...The Gloam
CAPERS Noir is a game of criminals, cops, mystery, and monsters in a world filled with dark corners. Your character will explore this world, all the while hoping they don't fall to corruption, both political and of the soul.
The campaign is well above its funding level with still 28 days left to go.
