Anita Blake Roleplaying Game (RPG) in Chicago
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 based off the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series by Laurell
K. Hamilton. It's a world where vampires have rights, zombies don't, shape-
shifters 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.

Hog Butcher for the World,
Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,
Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler;
Stormy, husky, brawling,
City of the Big Shoulders:
They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I have seen your painted women under the gas lamps luring the farm boys.
And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to kill again.
And they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: On the faces of women and children I have seen the marks of wanton hunger.
And having answered so I turn once more to those who sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer and say to them:
Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.
Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the little soft cities;
Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning as a savage pitted against the wilderness,
Building, breaking, rebuilding,
Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white teeth,
Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young man laughs,
Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has never lost a battle,
Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse, and under his ribs the heart of the people, Laughing!
Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Hog Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation.

-- Carl Sandburg's "Chicago" (1916)
