Hawaiian Noir is a hard boiled, cynical world full of crime, betrayal, and murder. Taking place in an exotic paradise. Where the the weary world's veil grows thin and darkness creeps over.

A little Sample,

Horror/Fear/Sanity check
Sometimes people encounter an act of violence, or entity that floors them. Something truly horrific, weird, or strange. So seeing an angry savage dog wouldn't require it. But seeing an angry savage dog foaming at the mouth, the fur on its head slicked back by blood and gore, yes. Seeing someone shot, no. Finding a pile of corpses that have been machine gunned, yes. A group of people walking at night, no. Encountering the "Nightmarchers", yes. Reading about Kahōʻāliʻi, no. Encountering Kahōʻāliʻi, yes.
When making a check the character must roll over a target number. The roll receives a bonus from willpower. If successful, they have pulled themselves together and operate normally. If they fail they must run away or stand frozen in horror. They also temporarily lose 1 willpower point till they have slept. Characters regenerate one point of temporarily loss will every time they sleep. So if they lose more than one in a day it takes days to regain them. Now if they a roll a 1 it is an automatic failure. In addition to the effects of a normal failure they also permanently lose one point of willpower, and gain a mental disorder.

Menehune are a mythical people of small stature. They live deep in the forests and hidden valleys of the islands. They are superb craftspeople. They build temples, fishponds, roads, canoes, and houses. Its thought that only one small tribe of these diminutive people still exists.They are good at hiding in their jungle habitat. (+4 to sneak when in jungle)

Hawaiian Noir

OK, so inspiration struck. I'm writing again! Hooray! I'm working on some Hawaiian Noir material. The wife started watching TatauA supernatural murder mystery set in the Cook Islands. Its been really inspiring. More on the way shortly.

So while I have been stuck with my writing. I have been doing some art. I still hate it (My own pieces that is). But it gives me a fantastic release. I feel I'm getting better little by little. But that's not saying much. But heres some more inspiration.

Work  is annihilating my life and killing my creativity. I'm so sapped right now. Writers block and poor man funk all mixed together. Cant focus, and ideas fly out and away from my head like hawks with jet packs. With only the glimmer of the idea that they will return. I hold that glimmer in my pocket tightly like a coin. I just cant insert it back into my mind, to restart that creativity pinball machine. Alas, I present a few pics. Its all I can do. They fire my imagination, which then quickly smolders under the heavy rain of customers, and crazies. Hopefully they will find you in a better mindset than I.
