    and that wraps Noir, with two particular exceptions. Stilietto, who didn't get a picture, and Silver Knight, whom's best served by taking the writeup for detective bullock from DC Adventures Universe and maxing his ranks in luck

    They might also have appeared in Annual 2, as I'm not sure if I ever saw 1, yet I know who they are.

    This reminds me of one of the first play-by-post games I ever played in, something set in a film noir/cyberpunk cross that ended up somewhere between Snow Crash and Blade Runner. One day I need to return to that world of dark streets and bright dreams again and run a game in it.

    You can mix noir stylings with magic -- Bloodshadows did so rather well, as do the Garrett P.I. stories that inspired it -- but these in particular aren't really effective mixes, no.
    Check out my new super hero/science fiction novel, Unbelievable: A Tale of the Exotica Chronicles.

    from Halt Evil Doer!, Katherine "Kitty" Richardson was a heroine and decorated Canadian super-agent, until when during a mission she was sucked into the Faerie realm of Otherworld. While to her, Avro was only there for moments, over a decade passed back on earth by the time she returned, to a world where the iron age of heroics came and went in a bloody swathe, leaving heroes like her feared and mistrusted, while her own life lay in ruins from being presumed dead. Avro's idealism and determination were put to the ultimate test as she had to not only rebuild her life, but the organization and reputation of her old team, Hero Force One
