CORE – The Red Tower

Capone’s reign has ended, and it remains to be seen how much of Chicago’s corrupt infrastructure will be dragged down with him. As two-bit criminals scramble to establish themselves in the power vacuum, the exposed corruption presents an opportunity for muckraking socialists to provoke the downtrodden into revolution. Meanwhile, the government must intervene to stop the Commies and audit the more legitimate business holdings listed in Capone’s infamous ledger.

Two agents for the Treasury’s Bureau of Investigation and two inspectors for the Food, Drug, and Insecticide department combine their efforts in an attempt to clean up Chicago’s notorious meatpacking district.  What they found would shock the world. . .

. . .if anyone would believe them.

The Red Tower, written by RPPR’s Caleb Stokes, was used to playtest the CORE RPG rules.  The scenario was streamlined and simplified for playtesting purposes, and this session does not represent the breadth of options the scenario provides.

There were still plenty of scary things.
