YAY!! Remiel you made my day. I will set it up in the Non Adult section as a way for newbies to join in and get to know the regular members.
I want to make it totally freeform and open. That is we will be playing as people walking into the shop and asking for a story night. Chat between yourselves, with the others and so forth. When the story begins it will be totally IC and the fun begins when the lights go out! No! Not that kind of fun! Just to make it spooky.
If you are in the game and want to drop out that is fine, the GM (me) can arrange for you to be executed or busy with a task elsewhere, your choice. Then if you are a missing character you can be pulled back into the story by being finished with your task, resurrected or make a new character. Does that sound workable?
