Murder on the Boardwalk

It is the height of prohibition in the late twenties, and the underground mob scene is prospering in major U.S. cities with rum running, loan sharking, protection rackets, illicit speakeasies, and gaming halls. To unite the underworld, crime bosses from Atlantic City, New York City, and Chicago have agreed to establish The Commission at the Atlantic City conference. This ruling body will oversee all mob organizations in the United States and serve as the supreme ruler of the underground.

Varied opinions have been formed on how The Commission should be managed, who will be the boss of all bosses, and if it should even be created. The disagreements have created hostility between rival mob factions, but the crime bosses have given their word to conduct themselves with integrity at the conference. Nuggy Jones from Atlantic City has agreed to host the meeting at his residence and place of business, the Karlton Ritz Hotel on The Boardwalk. Mobsters from the most prominent families are starting to arrive in Atlantic City, and tension is building in the air.

This is where your story begins.
