Homicide: The Scoop

Homicide: Mythic GM Solo Play

This is the Mythic GM game context for my Homicide solo play game. It's getting pretty long, so rather than insert it into each post, I'm going to post once as a page and update as I go. I'll also post the current snapshot every few turns so readers joining in late aren't completely spoiled by this summary, since it will reflect a later stage of the game.
