This isn't so much a pitch as me getting my thoughts out there for some eyes to look at this.
Set in modern day Boston, a spree of crimes related to a mysterious cult has managed to hit headlines- and the mayor's desk. Pieced together from officers chosen amongst the Boston Police Department, the FBI, and other law enforcement agencies, the Crime Response Task Force has been assembled.
Their mission: Investigate and stop the murders plaguing Boston.
Players are the agents of CRTF. Mostly police officers, detectives and other agents on loan from other agencies, the CRTF is relatively small, but dedicated.
Turns out the cult in question is one of many seeking to find a way to allow the denizens of Hell to access Earth. Heaven and Hell both have limited access to Earth, where Angels have been able to maintain dominance for eons. But now, Hell is coming close to a breakthrough.
After finding out the truth of the cult they've been tasked with stopping, the CRTF will be brought fully into the emerging conflict when they (The PCs) are invested with power- allowing them to take a more active role in the coming days.
The goal would be that these powers would eventually make the PCs principal players towards the end of the campaign. So to start, it would be fairly low-power, although PCs are law enforcement which makes them a bit above Average Joes, with the capability for them to get much stronger as it goes on.
Anyways guys, I'm hoping to hear some thoughts from you guys, and I should have more details after I get some sleep. I've gone and stayed up until 5AM again
