We all have grown up believing that vampires, werewolves, and other things that go bump in the night are make believe. Legends and myths of mystical creatures were just things to dream about, read about, or watch on movie screens. But what if they were real?
Welcome to Windy City MUX, a non-World of Darkness Modern Gothic-Horror RPG set in Chicago and roughly based off the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton1. It's a world where vampires have rights, zombies don't, shapeshifters are discriminated against illegally, and humans raise the dead for a living. In short, it's a modern world that will often look the same to you and me, but the monsters that we all thought were storybook creatures are out mingling with the rest of us.
And they aren't nice.
