Most often we play D20 Modern with young (18-20 year old) characters who were friends through school (different schools, brought together by family tragedies).
Lately, we've done an alternate universe version where these characters were bitten by Vampires (2 of them) and Werewolves (2 of them) and 2 of them are still human, but ultra-geek-gadgeteers.
We use a mixture of D20 Modern, D20 Future, Urban Arcana, After Sunset, a medley of Blood and _______ books, some house rules, and a bunch of World of Darkness books as reference material.
