I'd like to suggest setting something up based on the show "Copper". For anyone who hasn't seen it, the BBC America website gives a good run down: www.bbcamerica.com/copper/
The setting - New York in the midst of the Civil War - offers an interesting change of pace. The canon storyline also has plenty of quirky relationships to keep things exciting, and it's bound to only get more engaging when people add in their own original characters. I definitely think this could work!
For those who may or may not remember me, I played Mikhail Bakunin in the Lost RPG for a while. But I think that was more than five years ago at this point. Very happy to see the place still thriving even after all this time!
