The city by the bay has been watched over by a wizard of growing power.
Rumors say he made a deal with a devil, that he worked for the fae, even that he nearly destroyed the red court.
But one thing we all came to reply on: when trouble came, he was there. He got us through zombie uprisings, demon attacks faery wars and more… we are not sure what we will do without him.
But now the wizard is missing. No one has seen him in months. We all hoped he would just reappear, as he has so many times before. But he hasn’t.
Nature abhors a void, and so do big bads. That same well-informed rumormill has it the last of the black court has an eye on the city, a disgruntled White Court heir is considering setting up shop here, and there have been sightings of outsiders… it’s time to do something, or this could become an unnatural free-trade zone. One where the trade is mostly in human lives.
Some say, we need to step up and protect the city now that he is gone. Others say, we better find him pronto. Still others say, why are you bothering me?

Notes: Based loosely on the Dresden files, using that world and rules, but not those characters. Moved to an alternative San Francisco, because I know that town best.
Pacing: I’m a prof on spring break, so I plan to keep this game flying forward until Monday. I won’t wait for all characters to make their move, but one can pop in and out as needed. If that’s you, pick a character who would pop in and out– a faery godmother, perhaps.
Characters: Just don’t overpower yourself, otherwise feel free to make up whatever you feel.
Tense: Third person, past. I know Dresden files is 1st, but if we do that, it will just be painfully confusing. Also, please be generous with line breaks. It makes online reading easier.
Story vs RPG rules? I’m oriented toward story, so I’m happy with others writing others character dialog in character. I’ll even use your character if needed…. if you hate that, just pipe up in the commentary, and hopefully all will respect each other’s preferences.
As well, I’m very good at improv, so you as player can shape the plot, add NPCs or villains. Go for it!
If you don’t know the Dresden world, that’s fine, jump in! I can provide references as needed. tl;dr wizard private eye in a world where pretty much every kind of supernatural thing exists.
This is my first narration, but I’ve RTFM, and willing to take notes. ;)
