Welcome to Torna, a city split down the middle between to rivaling families and nestled in the urban landscape of Ginosa. You've come here of your own volition, even signed a contract to gain admittance here. But, perhaps somewhere along the line, you should've read the very, very, very fine print.
Your contract has been delivered to one of three: the Salvaggios, the Vallettas, or to Commissioner Spade. The reigning families are locked in a war not only against each other, but against the Ginosa Police Force as well. The contracts in their possession are used to conscript you into their service. Aiding the family by performing your assigned role well will bring you great rewards and significant power within Torna. Opposing the family by performing poorly, rebelling against authority, or defection will bring terrible punishments.
Despite this jockeying for power, the GPF has more than just the families to worry about. Corruption among its own ranks, a dwindling supply of detectives, unreliable informants, and a rumored group of vigilantes creating chaos on the streets plague the department. Commissioner Spade will ask those whose contracts he holds to aid him in his mission to bring justice back to the city. Agreeing will get you positions within the department that make use of your skills. Refusing is an option, he will not force your hand, and will aid in finding you a safe place to stay. But, that doesn't come recommended. Sometimes, even bad things happen in neutral territories.
Whatever side you're on, know that there is no going home until the contract is fulfilled. Make allies quickly -- either among each other or the city's elite -- for deception, betrayal, and death lurk around every corner. And if you're clever enough to survive the obstacles around you, you'll discover that something far more dangerous lies in store for all.
The Glass Key is a panfandom noir game that draws heavy inspiration from crime dramas and mafia-related media. There are mysteries to uncover, turf wars to win, crimes to commit, crimes to stop, and a host of other issues for characters to deal with as they find their footing in a city that isn't quite what it seems. The environment is a malleable one: character actions can and will have a direct impact on the world and the direction of the plot.
