fallcity is a murder mystery game that is starting up this weekend! In this small town, nobody is innocent, but some are more not-innocent than others. Was the fire that killed that little girl 21 years ago really an accident, or was it murder? Was her mother's death a month later an accident, or murder? There's a film crew coming to town to do some on-location shoots for the movie based on the book about the fire. And there will be more murder!
My character Nathan Griggs (extermi_nate) would love his ex-wife to come join him and their son Elijah Griggs (egriggs) in the game. She's 47, and her name is currently Laura Winters, though we're both open to you renaming her if you don't dig it. Laura and Nathan dated in high school, and then he got her pregnant in their senior year. Her strict father nearly exploded, and ultimately all-but-forced the two of them to get married, which they did the day after graduation. Their son was born that summer. Nate and Laura really tried to make the teenage-parents-young-marriage thing work, but they ultimately divorced amicably shortly before their fourth anniversary. Laura got full custody of their son, and Nate skipped town for four years. When he returned, he tried to be a more present father, but then he left again shortly after the above-mentioned fire and death of the little girl's mother. He returned shortly after your son turned 16, and has been attempting to mend the bridges he burned with his son. You've remarried, but there's friction between your step-kids and your son.
And now that the film crew is showing up in town, surely this is all dredging up old memories. Are you suspicious of your ex-husband's timing of having been in town for the fire, and leaving not long after? Or does first love continue to blind you to his potential dark side? How's your relationship with your son? Do you maybe know something about everything that happened 21 years ago, but you've been keeping quiet all this time?
Come join us! :D You can leave me a message on the dropbox in Nate's journal, or reach me via email or discord (both listed in his bio).
