This was freeform

Hello everybody,

I've decided to 'run' a new game on the inn. It is located in the freeform section, so no rules apply other than those of your imagination.

I do have some things I would like you ro reconsider before joining:

1 ) I host this game, which means that I don't make everything up. I welcome you to help me out in this. Still, people might die, which in this game doesn't have to mean anything.
2 ) While I put it in the horror section of the freeform games, this is only because of the horrific scenes. This is not an excuse for strong language or explicit sex, though I know you all like those two.
3 ) I am looking for characters that fit a realistically fantastic mood. There is very few magic involved, so your character that acts like a 20th level sorcerer has no place in this.
4 ) The idea of the game is more simple than its solution: we have to escape hell. And this is hell as we imagine it, not how other people have imagined it for us. Of course there is going to be a lot of resemblance and referance, but this is not going to be like: Ooh, we just had the fungoid forest, according to my planar guide to hell we'll arrive in... shut it! Yep... like that.
5 ) There is no 5

I hope we can all enjoy this little thing. Whoever feels like jumping aboard is welcome to do so. There is no need to send me character sheets or backgrounds. Just make sure you write well, doesn't have to be long per se.

And I can't stress this enough: making your character interesting doesn't mean he has to be a half-dragon barbarian with a doublebladed broadsword. Keep it as realistic as you can. This doesn't mean your minotaur isn't welcome... just don't make him too standard.

Oh, wow

Can't say I'm a big Player type of a person, but I'm interested in escaping hell

well

Yes, Grugg, I had the same Sparta reference attacking me when I read my title.

Skari: I know you like DMing better, but that is exactly what I need for this game. I like freeform where the 'players' have a lot of say in what happens, and help shape the world (or hell, in this case).
You are very welcome to join in!

Very Intrigued

I am very intrigued by this and it might serve well as a writing exercise for me.

oh no

Now I have to live up to somebody's expectations!

Just kidding. I'm glad to have you on board.

Any other takers?

well

I was going to jump in and take the character you had introduced, but I was too slow and you posted again. So I decided to introduce a character of mine from a book I never wrote Lleu Llau Cathedral (pronounced Clue Claw).

one more?

We could still use one more person to join in on this. I have no problem with.. no, in fact: I would certainly enjoy going through this 'experience' with just Alacrity, but since hell's a crowded place, another player with new points of view could certainly work for the better.

Oh hell

Sounds like fun, I'd like to give it a go, but like Death, I'm going to have to be in a bit of a mood to write for it, so I'll sleep on it tonight and probably get something posted tomorrow. And, if it goes bad for me, we can always kill me off

Q&A

Perhaps we need a Q&A section for this game?

How much of this do you wish to control Almerin? I have a very distinct idea about my character and his abilities in the "real" world and in the subconscious world - so I know what his actions will be but not sure how far I should go in manipulating or changing the environment.

Great news!

I'm glay you guys are going to give it a go.

I'll make a Q/A for it, where we can post our questions to each other and post information or thoughts.

As for post count: this was never meant as a fast paced game. We want quality, despair and interesting characters. And as I stated before: this is a joined effort. So Roger, go ahead and change whatever needs to change to make it as hellish as possible. We all have full freedom.

Well, this is interesting...

And I know a character who could work quite well in this...

She was originally designed for a Silent Hill game, although the GM vanished...

Well, we'll see how I do
