AN IMPORTANT POINT:

The characters are spending the night in a house with no electricity, no heating, no water, no food.

And OH yes, it's the 31st of October! Okay so may be in Texas and Los Angeles it's still blisteringly hot in October, but in more Northerly climbs it's actually pretty cold at night at this time of year.

Please give some thought as to what items you want your character to bring.

Could I do a male character that looks quite feminine, yet still considers himself male?

Sure, Androgyny is definitely allowable.

Cool. Looking forward to seeing her.

Yay, looking forward to it.

Hmmm.... A new employee of a hospital or an employee of a new hospital? Not that it makes much difference I suppose.

I love the way all the characters so far have brought a phone with them.

I have absolutely no issue with this. Please feel free to have your phones with you.

Exactly! This is why I have no problem with people having them.

Oh, by the way, if people want to drop out of the game and actually post that they leave the house, they can... up until midnight. After that... well, there could be a problem!

Oh and, anyone who survives until dawn will be awarded a signature button saying "I survived Chrystal's Haunted House"! I would do tee shirts but a) I can't afford it and b) I'd have to ship them all over the world.

Haha, Chrystal!

Anyway, he has his lucky dice!

Well you know this is right up her.... uh... Street, yeah, street! That's the word.



Oh By the way, everyone who is interested....

IF there is something you definitely want to happen to your character, whether it is something I've listed in the things that may happen, or whether it is something totally different, send me a PM to say "Can I have this happen to my character please?" And I will see what I can do

I am trying to come up with a character, Chrystal, but I am lacking in inspiration at the moment.  :(

Which is weird because character creation is usually one of my favorite parts.

So, it's looking like this might be a hit! Of course that all depends on how many players "chicken out" when I actually start things off.

Those I've PMed back asking you to change something, please don't take it personally, I am just trying to get the right feel for the game.

In case you're wondering, by the way, there will be no system as such (this info will be at the start of the OOC thread when I open it, so don't panic if you loose track of this post), just your evil GM being evil.

Basically, I will post first, describe the first room everyone enters. Certain items and places in that description will be highlighted in red and probably underlined too for good measure.

When your character touches a highlighted item or enters a highlighted area, I ask you to stop your post at that point and either wait for a GM post, or give me a nudge if one is not forthcoming!

NOTE: if stopping your post at that point will result in a short post then that's fine, however if you would rather not post short, then you can send me a PM before you post saying, "My character is going to do this, what happens?"

But if you do that and change your mind, then your evil GM will probably have the event happen to your character anyway!


My own character will be appearing fairly soon!

Go for it.

And as I pointed out to BeckyAnnn with the geeks, there is no reason we can't have more than one jock.

After all, he'd look pretty silly out there on the ice all by himself!

Ah... yes. I have managed to approve all character sheets sent to me so far. (one still needs a slight adjustment but is approved pending that.

I have even managed to approve my own!

And  I seriously cannot believe how unprepared for this most of the characters are! *snigger*

If anyone wishes to add anything to their equipment list, you have until I open the OOC thread to PM me and tell me what you want added!
