So, based on an idea from Lovelygirl, I've more fully developed this idea.
Camp Whatsitcalled (name suggestions welcome, I'll think of something eventuall) was a popular summer camp for years. Up in the mountains, surrounded by trees, with a lake or a river (leaning towards lake, but flexible). Cabins in multiple quads (different age groups, different genders, although I'm undecided whether it was a coed or single gender camp), fire pits, main lodge, old basketball courts, soccer fields, etc. Everything you could want in a summer camp.
Except about 4-5 years ago the owner got sick and couldn't manage it, couldn't afford it, and it shut down. Its been empty ever since. More recently there has been talk of selling it, and rumors that a big conglomerate will buy it and turn it into a vacation resort. This may be its last summer before being bulldozed.
I want this to somewhat less character dependent. You character might only come up to visit memory lane one weekend and then disappear. Or come up every Tuesday night while she's in the nearby town on business. Your character may bring a sleeping bag and spend a few weeks, even the summer.
I'd like a variety of characters. Can be multiple ages, the camp was open for a long time. Don't have to be former campers, could be a spouse having heard all the stories, or a drifter/squatter taking advantage of empty buildings, also if people would like to play couples, friends, etc, having some pre-existing connections would be great, even if its old camp friendships rediscovered. Can even cycle multiple characters per player if you want
I'm considering my character being the young daughter of the owner.
Any thoughts on the camp or characters?
