Spel, Schnookums, Creeper and I are looking for one more player for a Silent hill based game. It won't be THE Silent Hill but will feel and taste much like Silent Hill, the town's name is Heaven.
I should say this now, I abhor killing PCs without their concent but to add to the feel of the game I would just like to let you know that while death might not come easily (I don't WANT to kill everyone. Where's the fun in that?) if you persist with stupid things (everyone knows wrestling with zombies is a bad idea) or if the situation dictates (***** who had his back against the door to hold the zombies at bay while the others start pushing furniture around to actually block the door, a smart thing, doesn't realise that Pyramid head with his 7 foot long sword is on the other side... oops, now he's been scewerd by a long sword as PH makes his own door.) it will happen, please don't take it personally. I hope everyone is okay with that.
It's modern day, I was thinking of making it the cliche of a bunch of friends get together for a camp, get lost in a spooky old forest, while trying to reorient themselves they stumble across a ghost, mining town. I wouldlike it if everyone knew at least one other character, you can be siblings, friends, significant others, what ever you like.
I would also like everyone to have some kind of deep dark secret (maybe you lust after your sibling, maybe you raped and killed (on purpose or not) someone). I'm pretty open about the age of everyone. I was picturing like college students but it could be 40 year olds getting together with old friends for a little camp.
There will be sex, but any soft, vanilla sex will be up to you to innitiate, anything I (as GM) start will be pretty bondagey. There is a story, it will have a start and a finish (one way or another).
That's fair, although I must ask: Would you be willing to choose a secret for me and reveal it over the course of the story? I ask because one of the reasons that I enjoy the Silent Hill series is that I like to gradually learn just what it is the protagonist is guilty of. Also, would you prefer that our characters' secrets be connected in some way? This could explain why all of our characters are in Silent Hill at the same time and might allow you yourself to streamline the theme and imagery.
You know, I think I do have an idea. I could do that if everyone else is cool with it. It might make it easier.
