REVOLVER CASTING CALL  Closing: 10/1/2017

When the world fell magic replaced technology. In between massive cities controlled by a magical nobility and tiny villages where the old magic rules are wastelands of desert controlled only by the strong. Annie Oakley is a null, a person born without the ability to manipulate magic at all and an aura which breaks down magic used against her. Stolen as a child to protect her from execution at the hands of those who fear her kind's ability to nullify their magic Annie once worked as a Revolver, a null who uses dead technology to kill and maim for a price. Now having left the organization which trained her, protected her, and contracted her out for a price Annie drifts from town to town in her Ford taking any contract she can get to keep her in gas and cigarettes, all while trying to avoid her former partner Jessie James and his attempts to re-recruit her for The Null. When an old friend calls for help finding a lost kid Annie takes up the cause and ends up finding herself lost in the ancient city of Yen, a magi-tech metroplois which is controlled by an all seeing Goddess Tychee and ruled by a corrupt noble court. With the help of her companion DOG (the mutant dog) Annie races against time to save a child's life all while trying to dodge a mysterious force which wishes her dead.
