Hi everybody! It's Deb here with a new character I'm hoping to bring in. Her name is Sophie; she's 17 and kind of quiet in big groups but can be a bit more forthcoming in smaller ones. For most of her life, she's felt like she was mostly known by her sister's accomplishments more than her own and that lasted even after her sister disappeared a couple of years ago. She's trying to become her own person so I'd ideally like to have her falling into a crowd she's more regularly spending time with than floating between but she'd know a variety of kids because she has been inconsistent with who her crowd is.

I'd especially love if anybody wanted to put their hands up for their teen to be the one she held a seance with over the summer. I'm picturing a small group of 2-3 others and I'd love if one is a bit experienced in the paranormal too.

I'm also looking for any young adults (late teens, early 20s) who knew her sister and may have been in her circle of cool jock types. Brooke wasn't the nicest person to Sophie and encouraged her friends to be pretty dismissive of her but whether they listened to not would be up to the player.

It's midnight here so I'm not going to ramble too much longer but that's just a couple of ideas to get the ideas going. I'm happy to hear others too. I'd love for her to have an after school job if anybody needs coworkers, maybe have her be on a sports team etc.

Cheers.

Hello hello again everyone! Meg here! I’m bringing in [info]neilanmc’s younger brother Torsten McLellan. Torsten used to be the biology teacher at Chamberlain, that was until he went missing over a year ago. Torsten has found himself in a very interesting position. It seems like he’s just dug himself out of a shallow grave with no memory as to what happened or what’s been going on for the last year of his life. Now my theory is that he was accidentally shot by someone in the woods who buried him in a shallow grave so as not to incriminate themselves but I’m open to ideas here people.

I’d love anything for him. Former students, students parents, ex girlfriends (or maybe like ex flings cause homeboy cannot hold on to a girlfriend to save his life). Eventually someone from the hospital to see if he’s had any brain damage, anybody who might have been disgusted or disliked by him.

To talk a little bit about him, he’s kind of an asshole but in the most witty and charming ways. He probably doesn’t have a lot of friends per se, maybe a few acquaintances. Please hit me up! I’d love to have some lines out there.

Hello you lovely people, I'm Tori and I'm currently in the middle of working up two characters to join you wonderful people.

The first one here is Chloe Garcia PB Ariana Grande, she'll be a nurse born and semi raised (spent the summers with grandparents) in PP. Ever meet those people that are so aww inducing you get sick of them? She's one of them. She's mostly bubbly, never has met a stranger (she will delightfully yammer at anyone), and is only slightly addicted to coffee. Right now I'm wavering on making her either telepathic or telekinetic a trait that was passed down from one of her parents. She would absolutely adore a good friend or two if anyone is willing.

Secondly I have Ian Richardson [tentatively Colton Haynes PB], he's gonna be a recent transfer on the police department. He's only slightly creepy in the fact that his sole reason for transferring was to stalk his obsession [info]whispered after stumbling onto one of her cam shows. Besides that he's a pretty okay guy if you put his sociopathic stalking tendencies aside. Anything for him is welcome.

Heyo! New person alert. I’m Meg and I’m thinking about bringing the gorgeous Neilan McLellan played by none other than Richard Madden. Neilan moved there about 4 months ago to publicly take the job as the new orchestra teacher ( as long as that line isn’t taken) for Chamberlain High. However, the real reason he moved to this middle of nowhere town was because his brother had settled there and went missing a little over a year ago. I’m hoping I can grab at some lines with people who may have known him. I believe as of right now I had him working at the AIR facility but really anywhere will do if t means someone might have known him locally. He’s kind of playing his own private detective since local police were of no help to him. He’s also a DJ at Cherries on the weekends so anybody who frequents it or works there would definitely know him. Just kind of wanted to throw some stuff out there before I finish him. Hit me up!

Hello everyone. I'm thinking of bringing this guy - Logan Blackwater (he had that name before I noticed the woods!) - into the game as a witch that maybe lives on a houseboat because no water boys scare him. He's old, he's a grump, he's a recluse. He would not tell people that he has a lot of friends - and I can't see him putting himself out there enough to have a 'family' - but a lot of people probably know him, and he knows quite a bit about the town and its history, having lived there all his life and survived.

Anyway, he could use just about everything, including a person or two that bothers him consistently. It would also be cool if the other witchy families knew him or at least knew of him? Hit me with your ideas, I'm super excited to get going!

HEY!!! I'm Ashley and I want to bring in a ghost/poltergeist! Her name is/was Xoey ( Like Zoe ), about 25/26 years old and perished in the 1990 Mercy Hospital fire. Playing with ideas of why she was there and what face I should use, the girl pictured..? Vanessa Morgan, Ashley Greene, Katie Cassidy, dark haired women suggestions!?

Come throw some ideas at me, babies!

Morning, everyone! Nick here again (or Nico, if it’s less confusing), with a second character that’s just about ready to app, because it was only a matter of time. (SHRUG EMOJI.)

This is Luis Portillo, 33 years old with the face of Alfonso Herrera. He was born in Point Pleasant and lived there until he was 13, because his sister went missing two years earlier and his mother couldn’t take staying there any longer. While away, Luis went to college, got married, got divorced, and soon after that, in 2013, returned to Point Pleasant. He worked at Books & Beer for a while and tutored kids in Spanish on the side until he got certified to do his actual job in the state of Maine as well, and he’s been a high school guidance counselor and occasional substitute teacher again ever since. He’s also going to be a foster dad to Roan Blake, but that’s a pretty new development for everyone involved.

Luis is, overall, a nice guy, usually mellow until the first drink when he becomes pretty jovial, and probably a little too tactile—he’s always the guy with an arm around someone’s shoulder, a hug, etc unless someone tells him off—and he’s the first to offer a shoulder and ear to anyone who needs it. What he also is, however, is paranoid. He moved back into town with his mother’s maiden name instead of the last name he had when they lived here, and he believes there’s a greater conspiracy behind the disappearance of his sister, so he has been gathering all information that he can get his hands on.

So. This got longer than intended, but that’s the run-down on Luis, and I’m excited to plot with you all and throw him your way!

Hey! James here again, and this is Roan.

Roan's fourteen or fifteen, and is new in town. He grew up with a mother who didn't want him, a "step-father" who wanted him even less, and all the requisite neglect and abuse that goes along with that. There was an incident finally, and CPS removed him from the home.

I'd love it if CPS sent him to live with his father, who up until this point had no idea he existed, but I know that's a big ask to people who have adult male characters with backstories plotted out, so I'd settle for having him taken in by a foster family if that's out there, or just placed with NPCs if there are really no takers.

Roan has a power, too—he can find things. And I don't mean, he's really good at getting under the sofa to see where you dropped that loose change. I mean, if he closes his eyes and concentrates on the item, he can see where it is, and then just... go get it. It's one of those powers which is useful here and there, but which isn't earth shattering or awe inspiring.

So yeah. Does anyone feel like taking in a sad, broken boy with a bit of an attitude problem but a heart of gold?

Hi there. I just noticed this game and had the muse bug hit bad so I thought I’d toss some info out there and see if it’s kosher or too completely out there. What I’ve got so far is that Ben (name subject to change) here was stolen away by AIR with his identical twin when they were young children, Ben developed his gifts while his brother seemingly didn’t, brother was disposed of permanently in a way that made it seem like it was Ben’s fault (gotta have that maximum trauma), Ben continued on getting stronger and stronger, and, while he was one of the ones who plotted the escape, it came a little too late for him and he was transferred somewhere else before it could be put into action. He spent the next seventeen years or so being a lab rat and has only just escaped (...don’t ask for details yet, still hashing that out) and come back to Point Pleasant looking for answers/revenge.

When it comes to powers he’s got telepathy and telekinesis, both pretty darn strong and with the potential to be a good psychic all rounder, but the telekinesis has been more developed over the years by his handlers since it’s the most showy/useful/easy to exploit. He’s been made to do unpleasant and uncomfortable things with it and that plus decades of being treated as something not quite human has him half believing he’s a monster. Add that to the fact that he was kidnapped in the very early nineties and has very few real world adult skills and he’s kind of like a fucked up, telekinetic Kimmy Schmidt.

Thoughts? Anyone interested in possible lines? Am I nuts? Let me know. (Seriously. I’m considering having his dead twin’s consciousness still be hitching a ride in him. Is that a bridge too far with weirdness?)
