Noir, very noir

Our game of Mortal Coil just got very sleazy tonight. It's LA Noir style with the PCs embroiled in some kind of Tong warfare, Mafia boss disappearance, hunt for a mysterious package.

Paula's PC Ginny, a Police Chief's runaway 16 year old daughter now a junkie hooker, decided to define the fact that she could enthrall men. The price I set was that she had to have sex with them. This lead to Ginny having sex with an orderly at the Sanatorium to escape from her room. Then she found Simon's PI PC Matt in a padded cell having been beaten up by the Police Chief's goons. He was too badly injured to resist her advances and was enthralled to get her away from there.

Then Ginny escaped from Matt and gave a taxi driver a blow job to drive her back to her pad. Of course he was driving so slowly that Matt easily followed her and got her back.

And then the LAPD used a human sacrifice to a totem they stole during a raid on the Dragon Tong to prevent anyone from using magic in the Police HQ.

If that's noir, it's porn noir. Voyeuristic porn noir. Excellent! I like the last para, stated matter-of-factly.

I love how the price-setting mechanic just nails (no double entendre intended) completely molds how a game's flavor develops.

It is good.

Here's a selection of some of the other magical facts we've defined in game:
A recently dead person can give up information but you can pick up a passion of theirs (conflict)

Magic can be used to remotely communicate within anyone I have met in the last 24 hours but they will know my true intent.

The Dragon Tong have an item that deactivates magic in a place but it requires human sacrifice to power (1/month) – the item is a large golden dragon

You can curse people who have injured you but you can't heal until the curse is deactivated.

The Gandolfinis have a Moorish magical artifact, a figurine that answers a question but any gain from this will be paid for threefold.

Oh shit, you just reminded me that I forgot to do an AP on our one-shot noir-supers game - More Than Human.

Is that M&M Noir or are you using something else?
