Tokyo Drifters - Premise

On the 16th of October, 1985, JAL flight 771 from London to Tokyo experienced some minor turbulence. During the incident, flight personnel were forced to restrain elderly passenger Ugaki Murai, after several female passengers complained Murai was splashing them with an unknown substance. Murai was detained on arrival in Tokyo, where he told officials he was 'blessing' the women to ensure their safe passage. After several hours, Murai was released without charge.

Within the following year, eight women from flight 771, including two JAL flight attendants, fell pregnant. Each woman died within 8 hours of giving birth, from a postpartum hemorrhage. Due to the varied geographical locations of the women and the time lapsed between births, a connection between the pregnancies, deaths and flight 771 was not made.

In 2015, the eight children (now 30) shared the same dream - that of a red light engulfing the city of Tokyo, Japan. Unable to explain their actions with family or friends, the eight strangers, each from radically differing backgrounds and situations, are leaving their home country and making their way to Tokyo.

They are The Drifters. They are The Light.
They are The End. They are The Beginning.


Tokyo Drifters is an urban fantasy, in which eight unlikely strangers are forced into a world they didn't know existed. Will they band together to discover their origins? Or will they turn on each other?

Each Drifter has been imbued with the abilities of a Japanese demon, spirit or deity. The greater their abilities, the greater their weaknesses. Will they choose to use their abilities to help others, or cause suffering? It is up to you.

Tokyo Drifters is a GPSL that focuses on character and plot development. We are looking for dedicated players with a strong imagination, who love working with complex characters, partially guided mystery story-lines and building a world from scratch.
