Blake WWII

Either one is good for me. Modern will be New Orleans, and so will likely have Zombies.  It is pretty standard Dresden Files, so let me explain my vision for WWII

The team will be a group of mortals or light supernatural characters who are all members of the OSS.  They're behind enemy lines, far from support and the weird euphemism begins happening.

We'd be looking at starting with 6 refresh, so there's not really much you can do in a supernatural sense.  I'd prefer if the max refresh that is spent on power didn't exceed -3 (after catches and other drawbacks of course), with each of the charcters growing organically during the course of the adventure. (IE a White Court Virgin going full White Court in play at a necessary moment).

Nazi Vampires, Ancient Horrors, and maybe even a Unicorn or two, Europe will be your entire setting and you'll go where the mission, or investigation, takes you.
