Il Padrino is a continuation of the events of La Madrina Run 1 (November 2021) by popular demand. New players are welcome, as long as they have no issues with the fact that most of the character secrets have already been revealed.
We once again slip into the roles of the three mafia families La Rosa, Conti and Bel Sito in 1930s New York. The Italian mob rules the streets of the city, but the continuing chaos of the economic crisis and the approaching end of prohibition, as well as the death of Padrino Gaetano la Rosa, have forced the families to join together in a syndicate and share common paths.
Personal goals and the shared past of the three Italian immigrant families will have a significant impact on their cooperation with each other.

New York, 1932. The 37th presidential election is coming up and the Great Depression has worsened since the events of a year ago. The economic crisis and prohibition have caused the crime rate to rise brutally. The struggle for bare survival is fueling distrust, avarice and greed among the city’s citizens. To make matters worse, criminal gangs are sprouting up on every corner and bloody street wars for power over individual city districts occur almost daily. Hopelessness and despair make citizens vulnerable to all forms of oppression and exploitation.
To avoid a civil war among themselves and to cope with these challenges, a year ago the La Rosa, Conti and Bel Sito mafia families, in accordance with the wishes of the late Padrino Gaetano La Rosa, joined together to form a syndicate, at the head of which Leonardo Conti was elected.
But a death in the new Quintino leads to the fact that, according to their self-imposed rules, the families must meet again within a year to elect a new Padrino and a new Quintino.
What has happened since the last meeting? Has the family grown together, as Gaetano wished, or have loyalties only shifted? What will the new election bring? A confirmation of the previous Padrino and Quintino or a complete reorganization of the syndicate?

If you have not participated in Run 1 or would like to play a new character, you can indicate your general preferences for character traits and game content. Since our game is partly intransparent, and some characters have facets that the short descriptions do not reflect, we will assign characters largely based on your preferences. We therefore ask you to fill out the registration form as accurately as possible; however, we cannot guarantee anything due to the high amount of individual work required beforehand.
We welcome all non-binary, genderqueer, etc. persons at our events and will strive to provide you with a character that you feel comfortable with. Regardless of what your gender identity is outside of the game, you can play either gender. However, since we strive for visual authenticity, we ask that all players adjust their appearance to represent the gender they are playing as convincingly as possible.
