Concept
Star Horizon is a tentative survival horror role-play concept. The concept is inspired by a number of conventional elements spread through a variety of different science fiction horror . It's direction is to use a semi-sand box experience with a strong GM-driven interactive story. The setting would take place in an isolated, but rather vast Space Station; known as Star Horizon. The station would be located in the far reaches of deep space, while taking place in a futuristic set piece. The station served as an experimental science and technology facility for several years before going dark. Communications from the station have been down for several months.

The dangers of this setting would be divided into several different forms. There would be the  environmental concerns of the station staying habitable, as it's been slowly falling apart, following a devastating and mysterious power surge that originally led the station to go dark. Additionally the last transmissions received from the station came with strange disturbing sounds of several unknown origins. Something has gone terribly wrong at Star Horizon and whatever that is has only grown worse in the last several months. Non environmental dangers on the station would come in three forms; Parasitic, Biomechanic, and Occult.


Player Characters
The PC's (player characters) would play the protagonists in this concept. The protagonists would be crew members who were put into cryogenic sleep, several weeks before the devastation. These characters would be awoken from cyrogenic sleep with distorted memories, caused by the actions of a mysterious station android, that would be played by myself. These characters would be able to remember who they are, and what they did on the station, but they would know nothing about what has caused the current circumstances that would start the game. The ultimate goal for the player base is to survive, and unchart the mysterious of the Star Horizon. I'd encourage exploration and interaction not just with fellow players, but the world itself, which will be as expansive as players may desire it to be. The expansion of the space station will actually depend on the players desire to explore it, further opening up access to it's many levels and further secrets. Or the cast can simply try and escape. The protagonists would be put into a group of six to eight, depending on the final turn out number of interest. I'm only looking for a maximum number of eight other writers to fill up roles. Myself is not included in that number as I'd be playing a few characters meant to lightly guide the story forward, but would not consider these characters as true members of the cast.

 There would be only one player group that may later be divided into two smaller groups, for story-telling purposes. Players would not be limited to these groups however, and may go and come as they please, among the station. The focus of the game would surround around the central cast of remaining crew members that would be the only known survivors left on the ship. Each crew member would fit an archetypal role, that's fitting of a space station, to bring something to the group. Each character would be different from the next. There will be no doubles of any one archetype, making each character unique in their skills and weaknesses. The goal of these survivors is to work together as each of them brings something vital to the group. The group would grow among one another and cooperate to overcome certain situations and would be encouraged to work as a team, rather than individually.


As it currently is; my list of roles for the cast would be as follows. I may be open to openning up one more role, that isn't already listed here. However, the role would need to stand out from the other characters tropes.

The Researcher (The Brain)
The Security Officer (The Brawns)
The Engineer (The Tech)
The Medic (The Doc) - Reserved
The Pathfinder (The Pilot)
The Scraper (The Scavenger)
The Citizen (Simply someone who had residence on the station prior to events) - Reserved
The Hacker (Likely a convict)

Alongside character sheets I'd be implementing a very simplistic points sheet to help manage character strengths. These strengths and weaknesses of these characters, would factor into the experiences that befallen them in the current dangerous circumstances that have consumed the space station. I'd be expanding on this system after enough interest is shown for me to proceed forward.

What to expect from the game
  • Survival horror / Isolation
  • Alien/Occult/Psychological forms of horror
  • Mystery
  • Story Driven
  • Science Fiction
  • Semi-sandbox
  • GM driven
  • Prompts and choices
  • Freeform choices
  • Dicerolls to assist with exploration and combat
  • Minimal character sheets using small numbers to assist with balancing strengths and weaknesses
  • Inventory / Item system; to regulate & track player inventories.

What we're searching for from players
  • One paragraph minimum
  • One post a week minimum with exceptions
  • Willing to work together with other players
  • Appeal toward horror, adventure, with slight drama
  • Realism; to the spiritual sense of the game. This is a horror game.
  • Open to potential light archetypes that differ from one another

Where to from here?
As I stated above; this is a tentative interest check. If the concept appeals to you please let me know here. You may feel free to reserve character roles at any time. Once and if this thread picks up enough interest, I will expand briefly on some of the information provided here at that time. I have further ideas for a story and details to add to the stations creativity. I will post these once and if this interest check collects enough interest.

I love survival horror games! Planting a flag of interest here. Though I'll have to see if I can dedicate the time to it. I'll have a lot on my plate come June.

Been mulling over this for a bit, sounds like a cool idea...I'm getting a distinct Pandorum and Event Horizon vibe.

The Researcher position sounds like it'd be fun  ;D
