Alright so here we go. First of all thank you all for your patience.
Secondly I'd like to mention this again, this game is based on
, not a copy, of Under the Dome. The problems the people face will probably be similar but the reason why the dome is there or how the dome behaves might differ from the book or the tv show. Why? Mostly because I haven't seen everything yet nor did I read the book. But also because I am not going to copy a book by the Master himself. That would be heresy.
You have already planned on some characters, that is good. I want them to be somehow connected so we can run one or two story lines in the game without people being left out. You are free to have your character have secrets, big or small, in fact it would be very nice to have a lot of interesting characters but keep it realistic. I don't mind one or two characters plotting something big but if everybody has plans and secrets to take over the world, that would be too much no? When in doubt, send me a PM with your plans and we'll take it from there.
What the dome is, does and why it's there will become clear through the game. The characters (and the players as well) will be kept guessing what is going on. The game will start with the dome being in place already and people slowly realizing they are trapped. More about that in the opening post.
So about the town. Glenwood Springs is roughly halfway between Denver, Colorado and the Utah border.
The dome has cut the city off roughly like this.
It's roughly 10 by 10 km. Plenty of space.
Characters then. Few things I really want:
- A picture of a real human being. Can be nude, sexy, anything, as long as it's a real human being. No neko, anthro, hentai or anime.
- A creative character. As a GM I will lead the game but you are still required to be able to play out your own character.
- Stick to Elliquiy roles. No minors.
Bit of an explanation about the sheet then. It's pretty straightforward really. The address is something I added just for visuals. Pick an address from the map in the above link. If you are shop keeper or hotel or whatever, add that location as well.
The connection could be anything, sister, brother, neighbour, colleague, good friend, secret crush, anything. Be creative but don't be invasive. Last but not least, the question if your character can die. Don't be alarmed, even if you say yes, the chances of it happening are small, I just want to know if you are willing to sacrifice your character for the good of the game. You are obviously allowed to create a new character or even play two characters from the start on.
Depending on the number of players, I might need some help in leading the game. If you are up for that, let me know and I will let you in on the secrets of the dome :)
That's that for now I guess. If you have questions, feel free to ask and get creative with your characters. Post them here please, not in my PM.
So last I have a question for you all regarding myself. Obviously you can all play characters that are blissfully ignorant about the dome since you are as well. I'm tempted to play a character myself but obviously I know what's going to happen. So question, should I play a character as well or stick to being a GM?
Hope to see some good creative characters.
