Copperhead County is my Forged-in-the-Dark game of real-world American crime and corruption, set in a fictional Tennessee county in the year 201x. RIYL the Breaking-Bad-Better-Call-Saul-iverse, The Wire, Justified, your Grand Thefts Auto, and other contemporary American criminal action-dramas.
You'll play a crew of outlaws trying to make a dollar in this cold world by undertaking an illegal quest for loot. You'll probably steal some stuff, maybe fight some goons, perhaps engage in tense negotiations, possibly enjoy high-octane car chases, and so forth.Copperhead County is a Forged in the Dark roleplaying game about organized crime, political corruption, and life and times in the modern American South. Your characters start the game broke and hopeless in America. Can you be your own bosses, build your own business, and live the dream? Can your crew beat the establishment, the good ol’ boys network, the entrenched machines, and become the big fish? What kind of lives will they live during their pursuit, and what sort of triumphs, hurts, and heartbreaks will they experience? That’s what we play to find out!
We might do one or two jobs depending on time. The primary job is The Waffle Hustle:
Character creation will be done at the table, with all-new re-designed playbooks making their debut at GPNW.Your crew is new, hungry, and broke: a bunch of misfits with no prospects except a willingness to operate outside of the lines of law-abiding society. If you're gonna get ahead in the American rat race, you're gonna need a leg up—and to step on a few toes on your way.
Luckily, you've got a tip that everyone's favorite local motorcycle enthusiasts, the Heathens MC, have a stash hidden inside an unlikely location: a highway-side outpost of the beloved all-day-breakfast grease-pit the Waffle Huddle. But how are you gonna break into a place that's open 24/7?
