___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ CW: Chicago is a schema based around Chicago during the 1930s, during the Great Depression. It has been in development for around six months now, so I decided it was about time it got a thread here. It has been worked on by Aqscout and I, with help from users such as the lovely @NightAngel. If you're interested in helping, whether it be with the development itself, community management, mapping, or anything else you can think of, add me here. The RP itself will revolve upon the inhabitants of Chicago itself, whether it be the bootleggers fighting the prohibition, the various gangs roaming the streets, the Chicago police force, or just your average soup-kitchen worker. RP is planned to be much more fast-paced than most serious roleplay, but not without its limits. Everything is pretty malleable at this point, so if you have suggestions, we'd love to hear them. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Chicago Police Department is one area of the RP we can be extremely accurate with, thanks to the wonderful documents such as these. It will play a very active role in RP, but will not be the sole focus of the entire schema. (Also, just a note here: how great is it that police officers used a 357 magnum as a sidearm in the 1930s? That's just convenient, man. Anyway, back to the post itself.) The PD will have its hands full, as weapons are everywhere - it's America. Prison is a very real possibility, as is court and lawyers. (Sidenote, if anyone would like to help out with keeping the law roleplay realistic, I've no legal experience, so I'd really appreciate it. ^-^) ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Industry is a major focus in Chicago: foundries, soup kitchens, and all manners of industry. Labor is extremely cheap, since thousands are unemployed. This allows for the employers to have complete and total control over their workplace. However, illegal industry is manifested in the form of the bootleggers around the city, making moonshine and happiness. Got an idea for a shop you want to make? Let me know so I can make the items for it. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The map has been a work in progress. It's mostly assembled from scrapped projects of mine, and is remarkably small currently. However, here, have some screenshots I took that highlight what's already made. Spoiler: Map Screenshots Oops. There's only one so far. Sorry A lot's left uncompiled, probably should do that soon. I'd do it now, but I'm tired and going to bed when I finish this thread. Night night. If you'd like to contact me personally, here's a link to my steam account. There's a closed dev group here. There's an open announcement/hype group here. (Click 'here'.) Let me know what you guys think of the idea, I'd love suggestions. The only thing holding the project back right now is my terrible work ethic, so inspiration is helpful as well. Thanks! With that, my Deathwish Coffee is wearing off and I'm going to bed for the time being.
