Sheila Stix is your is your average small time gangster. She might not have the most legal job in the world, but how else is a goblin supposed to pay for all those trips to the mall? But when an average trade goes horribly wrong, its up to Sheila to find the culprit before her boss decides to punish her for her failure with a brand new pair of cement shoes. And those don't go with ANY of her outfits...
This is a Noir-inspired prohibition-era D&D story where Sheila needs to look for clues and gather information to try to track down the culprit responsible for the death of her fellow gang members as she tries to recover the goods and money.
Sheila is, what some might call, a “pathetic weakling” and even with her trusty gun, isn't very well suited for combat. She'll have to talk her way out of her problems using a debate-based “combat system” using conversational skills instead of fancy weapon techniques or magic spells.
Characters: (well, 3 of them, anyway)
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
In any other game, our 'hero' would be a low level cannon fodder random encounter enemy, worth about 200 exp and maaaaaaybe a potion drop. As a lackey of the Viper Gang, she and her cohorts often get saddled with dangerous and thankless jobs, but money is money, and Sheila's shopping habit ain't gonna pay for itself.
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
The leader of the Viper Gang, whose ruthlessness is only matched by her greed. She can be especially harsh with her subordinates and does not tolerate failure.
Alignment: Lawful Good
A rookie cop on the RCPD. Although being a sorcerer with electric powers makes his eyes glow, he doesn't seem that bright.
So why not give it a whirl and tell us?

Fixed some typos and bugs. Fixed a map passability error and prevented the last boss from dealing the finishing blow to himself, which was a thing that could occasionally happen.
