All Flesh Must be Eaten interest check
« on: December 19, 2013, 12:22:06 AM »

In 1947 the Rocky Hill Hotel, located on the coast of Maine, was destroyed in a fire that claimed more than fifty lives.  In the decades since, the ruins were neither destroyed nor renovated, instead they were gradually reclaimed by the forest.  Now, on Halloween in 2013, several groups will go to investigate the rumour that the ruins are haunted.

Is there any interest in an All Flesh Must be Eaten game using the above premise?  I see the characters as being from a mix of backgrounds.  Television paranormal investigators who are there to make a Halloween special, teenagers/thrillseekers from a local town there to have fun, police to chase off the trespassers, and so on.

I would be interested.  What books are you planning to allow?  Would this be zombies, ghosts or a surprise?

I own All Flesh Must be Eaten Revised, Atlas of the Walking Dead, One of the Living, and Worlds of the Dead.  So I would be allowing/using those.

Zombies mainly, starting with a small outbreak and possibly spreading into something bigger.

Tentatively interested for a teenager, say 19 yo, but I can't confirm availability before the holidays.

I'm not in a rush to start things.  I may start expanding on my thoughts a bit over the holidays.  When you have a chance (no rush ;) ) please post a character concept.

Always a fan of trying a new system.  No ideas on concept yet, but have some time off and will get the main book and check it out.

Can we add 'wealthy entrepreneur interested in revitalizing the property' to the list of possible characters, as well as 'well informed, yet deceptive real estate agent'? I'd be willing to play both roles.
Do zombies count as property ;D?

Either of those ideas would be fine. :-)

What brought the service member there?  Is he retired and working with the TV crew?




Just a bit more information on what I am thinking

The Rocky Hill Hotel was a three story structure designed in the shape of a Y.  There was a parking lot and fountain in front of the building, with the lobby located at the center of the Y.  Between the two arms closest to the ocean was a large swimming pool.  While between the remaining arms, facing the forest, was a garden.  The parking lot was set off across the entrance road, which ran through the woods to hook up with a local highway.  Of course, the hotel itself was now gutted by fire.  The parking lot, garden, and swimming pool had been largely reclaimed by the forest, and the road was now a rough dirt track.

The nearest town was Blueport, located fifteen minutes by foot through the forest, or roughly half an hour by road due to the need to take a road out to the highway, drive along the highway, then down another road to the town.  The hotel was known among the locals, but generally avoided.  Those that believed such things tended to think it was haunted, while those that didnít were well aware of a spate of animal attacks and accidents that had claimed dozens of lives over the decades.

Retired, a local guide they hired

I may be up for this! I'd need to know more about the CS though. Could play a Ghost Hunter or someone else.

Ah, okay.  Sounds good.

CS?  Campaign setting?  I am thinking modern day, more or less like our world.  The rough location is mentioned in the first and a later post.  I will probably allow characters to be Survivors, though if someone wants a second character for some reason, I'll probably allow them as a Norm.  I'll try to get things more organized soon.

A rough and tough Texan who may dress like a snob, but he most certainly knows his way around a Smith & Wesson, hunting knife, and sword-cane, all of which he'll be packing upon his arrival. He's not a dumb man. He's read the reports.

The reports would mostly be local.  One or two deaths every few years, so it wouldn't be well known elsewhere.

I'm interested. Thinking of a kid who went along with some friends for something to do on Halloween. I think that would work better if there were other teen characters, maybe we could work out some history and connections together? If not, might have to have a few NPCs... they could always be the first to die.

Also, I have been interested in AFMBE for some time, but never played before, and it's been years since I've looked at a book. My inexperience won't be a problem, will it?

The sheet looks fine TheHangedMan :-)  Inexperience is fine.

For everyone who is interested, please post a character sheet and background. 

I don't have much to add to the setting at the current moment, so below is just a repost of other information for the game.  In terms of the paranormal investigation team, they would work for a cable tv station.  The size of their team and their budget would depend on how many players want their characters to be a part of that group, and what roles those characters would be taking.  I will probably run one or two NPCs at least for each group (teenagers, investigators, etc), but don't want to end up running too many.

     HISTORY
Erik was born in Blue Port to a biker babe and biker dude. Still, they were pretty good people, as far as parents go; maybe better than most. Needless to say, when he got older, they taught him to ride, and how to ride damn good.  As a kid, he worked out a lot with his father, and this trend continued into his teenage years. Around the age of 14, he started taking a youth martial arts class, and from there, his interest expanded to "stick fighting"(fighting with a staff). He's a natural warrior, made all the stronger with Iron Palm and Iron Body training.

He can be somewhat elusive at school, generally being quiet, but the girls like him for his ripped body and cool, relaxed attitude. He usually keeps an eye on the 'twerps', makes sure the jocks don't mess them up too badly... and when the jocks do get carried away, they usually wind up accidentally breaking their arms by accident. Some may say Erik helps them break their arms, but nope, he never admits it, and doesn't get caught.

Erik also has a passing interest in biology; specifically, human biology. He likes to learn how the body works, both so that he can take better care of himself, and also because it helps in a fight.

Currently, Erik's dream is to become a big time martial artist, and compete professionally.
