Welcome to Cold Creek. Its a quiet place to be. At least that's what the faded and worn sign that was barely visible through the thick grey fog stated, the hooded lights hanging on the sign flickering and giving off a sickly yellow glow that barely illuminated the cracking surface of the old sign mounted near the road leading into town. It supposed to be a popular tourist destination based around Toluca Lake. But something doesn't feel right. The weather was supposed to be clear so why was there a thick swirling fog covering everything?

Your instincts tell you to get back int he car, turn around and go the other way.

But you were supposed to met the others at Lakeview Hotel.........ignore the feeling of wrongness you get back in your car and leave the observation deck and head into town.




Game Info


Rebooting this but making a lot of chances.


A simple introduction: Cold Creek is a Silent Hill inspired mild horror free form sand box centered around a small isolated town called Cold Creek. It's a historical town that was once a populer tourist destination but a series of tragic events and falling number of tourist forced many stores to close, peopled moved out and the town became abandoned.

Cold Creek  is ruled by a powerful supernatural force that changes the town randomly into a nightmarish place populated by monsters that are physical representations of fears and guilt.

You do not need to anything about the Silent Hill series at all to play.

-This is a semi sand box meaning you can add onto the town, make new locations, make new monsters, new NPCs and the like. This is a game designed for players to add onto it

-Explore as much or as little as you like. There is an entire town and the surrounding land that can be explored.

-While a semi sandbox in nature, this game will focus on story arcs throughout the city. These are optional and the players are free to make thier own

-This game is open to every one

-Given its long dark history Cold Creek has become a very populer destination for ghost hunters, some of which have vanished over the years.

-The ONLY location that has human living inhabits is the mortar inn placed on the main road, just before the turn off to Cold Creek. It used to be a populer place for tourists to stop by when traveling to Cold Creek, now its a run down dump that is frequented by shady people, long haul truckers, ghost hunters and prostitutes.



History

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Built along the shores of Toluca Lake, Cold Creek appears to be a mid-sized town tourist town that is surrounded by wooded hills and rivers.  The lake itself has a long history of drownings, suicides and disappearances including a DUCK watercraft full of tourists, several small watercraft collisions.   

Going back more then four centuries, Cold Creek's history is plentiful and dark. To the local tribes of Native Americans, the Toluca Lake area had been known as "The Place of Silenced Spirits", and was long considered to have a kind of spiritual significance and an air of mysterious power. It was considered to be a holy place, where many rituals were conducted in accordance with the indigenous beliefs.

The late 1600s saw the arrival of settlers who would force the indigenous people from their sacred lands. These settlers would remain in the area until the turn of the century. At the start of the 1700's, an epidemic swept through the surrounding area surrounding Toluca Lake. With a large portion of the populace dead, the settlement was abandoned. It wasn't until the start of the 1800's that resettlement began.

Cold Creek was eventually abandoned after Lake Toluca became infamous for being a suicide spot along with the many tragic accidents that happned in the cold dark waters. 



How to arrive

So many ways. Your character can be a native of the town, someone who moved there or even a tourist who though the small resort town would be a nice place to take a vacation. Other ways your character can arrive:

-Take a wrong turn and drive into town.
-Get lost in the woods and find themselves telaported unknowing to Cold Creek
-Something as simple as being transported in a vehicle and waking up to a vehicle devoid of other passengers that has gone off the side of the road
