Despite my last post, I have been thinking about games and whatnot. I think I’ve decided that Dirty Cities needs to be the name of my crime campaign system. So, what do I call “the game that will let me play The Wire“?
It appears that this game will be at the intersection of The Wire, The Shield, and The Dark Knight. (Aside: yes, I’m serious about this last one. No supers, but similar thematic territory.) I’ve been over some of this in a previous post.
Today, I’m watching The Dark Knight, and it hits me. The Shield has its “Strike Force” and the other two have a “Major Crimes Unit”. So, now, I’m rolling around Major Crimes as a title. It works on a couple of levels. First, obviously, it refers to a Major Crimes Unit, which would be at the center of the game. Second, it refers to the idea that the characters in the game will be, you know, committing major crimes.
I’m going to let it sit for a while and see how I feel about it in a bit. But, I’m pitching it out there for feedback from all of you. What do you think?
