My name is yuuo
, I am your friendly moderator and game master. And I'm only friendly to players, so warn your characters that I'm not so nice to them.
I might be able to be bribed, though.
Anonymous commenting is currently on, though that will change once everyone has at least one character journal to respond with. Please feel free to introduce yourself and your character choices in the comments.Premise:
The idea of a roving Silent Hill is a fictional response to a real life missing persons case, described in the community profile. In this particular game (and we can always reuse the comm to go back to Silent Hill if I get a GM itchin' again), Silent Hill is a place that isn't concretely tied to the 'real' world. It moves, and people can disappear into its shadow realm without realizing it.
This game will feature characters from many canons.
To deal with this, all characters will start in their homeworlds, and The Game Master (hereafter referred to as Goddess) will concoct something to drag the characters from this homeworld into a standard earth setting. Depending on what characters y'all give me, and what characters I pick as player characters in response, that 'standard' may have some modifications.Mechanics:
Every player has to have two characters. All characters will start together, and then one by one, one member of each players' characters will disappear into Silent Hill. Your characters must
be inclined to look for each other if the other goes missing! If you want to team up with another player for your partnered characters, go for it.
(Example: If I use Van and Celena from my Lady Disdain series, and Zanne didn't have characters already chosen, she could take Van, and then she and I would have to come up with another partnered pair so that we both still have two characters, one in each world. It'd be easier if you just played both members of the pair, though.)
From there, we'll have two running storylines- the people in Silent Hill, and the folks trying to find them.
We'll figure out how to handle large threads later.Required Reading:
This is more reading for me, but writing from you guys. Once you have decided on your characters and linked them in a comment here, I need you guys to write a brief profile on your characters' journals in a new post, so I have some information to work with to landscape this place. You can deal with journal profiles however you want, but I need a post to work with, so I can comment and ask questions and have those questions and answers where I can get back to them easily.Communication:
We currently have a Slack channel on our team. Silphy, if you want, there's a browser option so that you don't have to have a program downloaded. Slack is nice in that if you leave the program/browser window, when you go back in next, Slack will have all the interactions you missed there. So no having to stay in the room to get backlog.
If Slack is down or you can't get in for whatever reason, send me an email, and I'll get everyone caught up somewhere else, if necessary. I think we all have Skype, if nothing else.
Questions? Concerns? Ideas for how to run from here? Reply, folks, reply!
