Bootleg and Moonshine's

Bootleg and Moonshine's


The eighteenth amendment was a pain in the keg. As our motto goes: If you can't buy it, we sell it at Bootleg and Moonshine's Speakeasy Diner.

645 readers have visited Bootleg and Moonshine's since affliction created it.


In the 1920's, Ravenswood was like any other part of New York - busy, bustling, and dry. The eighteenth amendment put a stop on the sale, production, import and export of alcohol nationwide. Of course, there are a lot of alcoholics in New York - enough to keep an underground business afloat!

1922, chalked on a large black section of the speakeasy wall.
Under Becker and Mercurio's Cafe and Bistro, we present to you Bootleg and Moonshine's Speakeasy Diner, where every hour is happy hour, and the latest in security mechanisms to keep our business and clientèle safe from authorities. We are family-run, and open 18 hours a day.

Our terms of entry for customers:

  • You will be searched for firearms before entering.
  • You may not invite additional guests without our approval. Guests which we may approve will be 'checked out' by us to prevent our speakeasy becoming swarmed upon.
  • No-one speaks of the brewery or speakeasy above ground. Staff have been trained to ignore any comment that could cause discovery of the business.
  • No beverages may be taken above ground.
  • No drink goes unfinished.
  • Only authorised cops allowed into the speakeasy upon production of a special badge only.
  • Never ask to enter the speakeasy. Simply order a an alcoholic drink with your meal, and you will be escorted to one of our 'special tables.'
Staff rules:

  • No one speaks of the Brewery
  • No Alcohol Above ground
  • No daytime drinking
  • Don't drink on Sunday
  • Do what you have to do to hide the evidence
  • No cops in the brewery
  • No Mafioso in the brewery
  • Friends of family/romantic partners must be verified with the owner before being allowed in.
  • No drink goes unfinished
  • The owner must know of all business transactions
  • Someone is underground at all times
  • Stay in Ravenswood unless otherwise allowed


The structure is simple. Characters can be any of the following:

  • A member of the family (working in the brewery/diner)
  • A police officer in support of the business.
  • A police officer with no knowledge of the business or the speakeasy.
  • A regular customer.
  • A crime family thug/member.
  • A romantic interest for one of the other characters (one perhaps working for another crime family?)

Members of the family must always abide by the rules above for staff.
Police officers who are authorised by the owner will possess a marked badge. No badge, no entry.
Regular customers are expected to follow the rules pertaining to entry, or else they may not be allowed back in.
Crime family associates are allowed in the speakeasy, but only if they are not carrying a weapon, or agree to leave it in staff possession during their stay.
Staff are authorised to carry a sidearm at all times in the diner, as are police officers who are allowed entry. Mafia members may carry a sidearm, but they will be required to leave it when entering the speakeasy.

I will be trying to 'guide' a plot, playing as the owner of the business, and the chief of police. The mafia boss (who is open for play) has no knowledge of the speakeasy to begin with, but when he does, he will obviously want to make money out of it.

Toggle Rules

  • You may only control your own characters - do not suggest their reactions to any speech or actions you may provide.
  • This has been tagged as an adult RP due to the possibility of murders, violence and the like. This also covers romance, and the extent of language allowed, within the jurisdiction of the site rules. Please consider this before joining, as this RP is definitely not suitable for people under the age of 16.
  • Whilst being serious in character is expected, remember that real people are controlling the other characters, and they do have feelings too. Don't post anything that you know, or should know will hurt another player's feelings.
  • You may not kill another character without the respective player's consent, which must also be relayed to affliction beforehand.
  • Keep with the times. It's 1922, so don't be texting on your iPhone, or checking your digital watch. Try and use lingo to match, and not modern slang.
