Beacon Hills RPG will pick up immediately after the season 2 finale. We will work on an episodic basis, for 13 "episodes". Each episode will take place over 1-2 weeks in game, and will vary from 2 to 4 weeks RL time. The game will run with an overarching plot (based around a season "bad guy") and smaller, player driven plots to keep character interaction and development up.
Holds will start on JULY 3rd, with first ads being on July 10th, but actual game play won't begin until August 17th. In the interim, there will be a variety of activities designed to keep interest and activity up including, but not limited to, character development exercises, open sandbox play, crack threads and in character memes. The hope is that by opening the holds early, we will have a full cast by the time we're ready to start the game.
Further information on plot will be revealed after the S2 finale, to make sure it follows S2 canon. Some ideas on the table thus far are a rival pack coming to challenge Derek and Scott, misunderstandings with a local coven, or someone with a vendetta against the Hunters causing the Argents to have to team up with Derek and Scott's packs, other supernatural creatures being discovered (vengeful spirits perhaps?), or something completly different. Once there is a firm idea of where S2 will end up, a decision for the plot will be made.
