[Modern AGE] Neon Noir

Neon Noir is an ambitious project I am taking up in my free time in March. Although I’m not technically in the month, I am trying to do this NaGa DeMon style. If you haven’t heard of National Game Design Month, look it up. It’s a cool idea!

Neon Noir is a setting that is inspired in part by Batman: the Animated Series, Disney’s Gargoyles, Dark City, The Flash (1991), Hackers and series from around the 1990s, as well as some more b-movie noir films. It’s not that A-list movies aren’t inspiration, it’s just that where else do you find mad scientists and robots? Although a lot of the initial inspiration comes from superhero media, this is not a superhero setting! Instead, it will follow Investigators in an alternate 1990s world of weird science and psychic phenomena. It will look like a mix of the 1940s and what the 90s thought the future would look like (Hence BtAS). Although it’ll be high action, guns and knives are lethal, and using your wits and words will be as encouraged as your fists.

The system I am basing it on is Modern AGE, and in this month I will be working on not only a setting book, with new rules specific to the setting, but also a full blown adventure path. Lookout for the First Case soon!

I'll certainly keep my eyes opened for this one. The 90s were my second choice of era for a Modern AGE one-shot. I'm doing 1912 first.

I have the rough edit of the first adventure. If anyone is interested, PM me and I'll send you a link to it. I'd appreciate any and all feedback anyone's willing to provide before I polish it and make it public!

This sounds really interesting. I'm a big fan of most of the things inspiring the setting. How is progress coming on it?
