>PCs are members of the underground sneaking into the quarantine zone. They're out to gain magical power from the area, loot shit to sell on the black market, do research and scouting for the factions (government or otherwise), figure out what caused all this mess, and maybe find a way to stop the flow of nightmares from the decapitated head of a forgotten god.

I was gonna homebrew Shadow of the Demon Lord and throw in some Unknown Armies stuff I like.

>> No.78026516

How does Unknown Armies work? I have heard it mentioned a lot, but dont really knows about it.

Also, what will you homebrew from Shadow of the Demon Lord?

>> No.78027548

IIRC, in UA all magic users are crazy, and draw power from their specific insanities.

>> No.78027593

>Urban Fantasy S.T.A.L.K.E.R

yeah sounds good

>> No.78028895

STALKER except with eldritch magic instead of radioactive magic?

Sounds like fun.

>> No.78028989

>the thing splits open and spills out nightmarish bullshit without end
What kind of nightmarish bullshit?

>> No.78029997

>lands in downtown Manhattan
New York is almost as overused for stuff like this as Tokyo. Fuck up Beijing or Toronto for a change. Or Baltimore but a tide of eldritch nightmares would probably make the place better.

>> No.78032618

This fine anon has a point, why not mix things up a bit? What about Chicago, have Sue reanimate?

>> No.78034757

>radioactive magic
How would radioactive magic interact with normal magic?

>> No.78034799

I too enjoyed playing The Secret World.

>> No.78034820

Sounds pretty cool. Hard pass on New York though. How about somewhere in the Midwest?

The eldritch abomination fears the Denver Broncos

>> No.78035779

I know shit about US, but why not some city of Montana?

>> No.78038101

Why Denver?

>> No.78040665

Got the Denver airport tunnels, and big enough for people to recognize but not too big to be overused.

>> No.78040856

So >>78029997
Or Manchester

So Darker Than Black?

>> No.78042750

>Got the Denver airport tunnels,
Ugh, there's how many conspiracy theories about those again?

>> No.78044504

I just had a thought, who or what did the beheading of said forgotten god? Could be a plot hook.

>> No.78044524

How the hell does the government cover up millions dead and a gigantic human head falling from the sky cracking open and spewing demons?
