Dark Journey's OCC
« on: February 14, 2014, 09:26:27 AM »
So you want to Discover the Person you Know you Can Become?

Great! here's what's needed:

Your character must have, or have had at one time at least once, an ‘Important Impact’ on the world or the lives of other people.  More than one ‘Important Impact’ will also be accepted.  I’m not asking for international celebrity or power, but your character should be able to (or used to be able to) ‘make waves’ in certain circles. The circles could be as large as the international business community or as small as a town's popular quilting club.

Your character must be currently experiencing at least a minimal amount of turmoil or burnout in their professional or private lives that makes a ‘vacation’ with Discovery Outdoor Adventures seem like a good idea, or perhaps just a necessary diversion.

The physical fitness level of your characters must be such that they can handle an ‘outdoor adventure’…or at least think they can. A certain level of ‘pot-belly ignorance’ is fine, but moderate to severely handicapped characters will probably not work out.

Have a secret or two. You know, the kind that would be scandalous among your normal circles, but probably wouldn't do too much harm if set free out here in the wild…

As for an actual char sheet, I'm happy with a bare bones style for ease of play.

Specifically

A brief bio of where they live,  if they happens to have any noteworthy friends/enemies, their career etc..

List a few relevant skills and areas of knowledge (with  a % representing their level the higher the % the higher the expertise/skill level, this way if/when skill checks become necessary it's easily handled.)

Also any particular possessions of note brought along for the journey and either a brief paragraph of description or a pic off the net that best fits the characters appearance.

Just PM it to me and we can sort out any specifics in private.

Oh and as to the type of "horror" this game is, well you'll just have to play to find out. ;)

Don't let me scare you. :wink: I remember Silver saying she was waiting for Kassy to finish her character, but I don't know why that would preclude anyone else from posting.

Apologies for the lack of posting, things got hectic recently, but things should be back to normal now, post as often as you like and I'll be replying every day to every other day.

Oh and caesar193 are you still playing? Haven;t heard from you in a fair bit so just checking ;)

Two suits and a young girl posing as a teacher, not a very traditional horror cast. Echo, what kind of tentacled monstrosity will you be playing?

Seems like you four are it so feel free to post as often as you like, things are going to get quite interesting (in the Chinese curse sense of the word) shortly.  :cthulhu:

I suppose I run a finger over the resin and smell it. Hopefully it's nothing too gross.

@Ceaser,  is it possible for you  to post more then once every 3-4 days please?

If not kindly let the rest of us know so we can adjust our expectations accordingly. ;)

Its been a hectic week so far. Once the weekend comes I'll hopefully be free to post every 2 hours :wink:. I'll try and post today, though.

It's become apparent that this game just isn't working out for whatever reasons, and interest levels seem to be on the low side (with 5 days or longer in between PC posts it's going to take until Halloween real time for anything horrific to actually occur in this game)

So I'm going to pull the plug on it and let it die a peacefully quiet death.

Thanks everyone for your participation and time, look forward to seeing you around the site!  8)

Any chance of this seeing a revival?

I'd be interested in taking part as I didn't get the chance the first time round.
