Yesterday, a circus came to the city. They pitched their colorful tents just at the edge of your neighbourhood. Just another gay and happy event during this summer, exciting for kids and annoying for those that dislike clowns or loud music.
It's a boring and hot day for you. Like most young adults, you could be planning vacations or cursing the need to work during the summer. You could be in love. Oh yes you could.
What's that shouting? Someone calling for help? Well, there's nothing here but a colorful car with clowns giving free tickets to their show in two days from now on. No one saw anyone shrieking in fear here.
(note, this game will contain some pretty serious violence, altough gore and sexuality will be kept separated from each other. No site limits will be breached.)
Hello everyone and let me invite you to this frantic game of laughing horror. It's b-movie horror, so you can expect some serious fear and a hefty dose of macabre, but not much psychological introspection. The game will likely go into Heavy section and it's going to be a system game, but with a very simple ruleset.
I know there was a b-movie rules light game proposed a while ago and died, but i'm hoping to try the idea again. All people that were looking forward to that one, including the wonderful gamemistress, please consider giving my 'b-game' a try.
I'm looking for at least three people, though i'd prefer more than that. Due to the game being horror and due to the action being confined to one part of the city, it will be easy both to 'bow out' and to 'join in' the game without breaking the plot.
I'd propose that characters be young adults, from 18 to late twenties, and as cliched as possible. While i'm not setting any particular time period, my mind is somewhere around 60's, 70's or 80's. And it's America, but the kind you see in movies of course.
If anyone wants to play a character from a different mold, we can come to agreement. Just keep within the 'b-movie' range.
Themes of the game are also up to discussion. If any player is creeped out by a particular theme, please let me know and i'll try to find a solution pleasing everyone.
there will be a lot of bondage, fetishes of all kinds and kinky distress of all kinds.
there will be violence and some gore, but not connected to anything sexual. killer clowns can hack a player apart with cleavers *or* subject him to erotic torture, but those things will never be linked to each other.
there will be some survival horror feel and some paranoia about clowns preying on people. there will be a need for good planning if one wishes to survive, but death will not always be result of mistakes. (and see previous point)
there will be themes of imprisonment in the haunted circus and the threat of becoming the clowns slave forever! *points finger threateningly*
For the system, i am undecided yet. I'm open for propositions. My current favorites would include:
The Pool, Wushu, Risus, nWoD.
