In the town of Scanton, interesting times are ahead. A venerable shop owner who sells very valuable objects and antiques for a curious price has moved into town. He enjoys to play mischevious pranks on victims. Some claim they have seen him in their nightmares. Scanton is discovering dead bodies, mostly from nearby communities and dug up graves, littering the streets and dumpsters in several businesses. Several hundred thousand inhabitants currently inhabit the town. . . but as a peaceful place, there had only been fifteen murders in three years up until recently. As of now, it is March 24th. Currently, there are already over thirty murders in three months.

St. Moira’s Asylum has been up and running for the past forty years. Unfortunately, the Asylum has only been somewhat morally restrained and compassionate for the first ten years. Ever since then, it had slowly descended into a living Hell. People experimented on, transformed into zombie like automotons or worse, some patients outright murdered, and even some perfectly stable people sent to this Asylum and then somehow escaping with souls far more evil than serial killers.

Meanwhile, a Carnival has arrived outside the city limits. The Carnival attracts tourists and locals alike for it’s unusual curiosities. It’s Gypsies, genuinely interesting mutated workers, trinkets and unusual people are bound to make a vast fortune.

The Gooding Estate, which lies just outside the town limits as well, is home to the reclusive Gooding family, a very wealthy clan-like family with billions of dollars. They are one of the oldest families in town, and some say that their family is cursed with witchcraft. Some say they have ties with the Mafia, which brings us to - The Mafia.

The Family originates from outside Scanton from a much larger family. They run amok the countryside, managing to dispose of evidence regarding crimes, violent or not, with alarming effectiveness. They have connections inside and around Scanton for everything from drugs, prostitution, and valuable goods, such as black market weapons.

Outside city limits, there is a hunting lodge, disguised as just a fraternal society, like the shriners, etcetera. Huntsmen, survivalists, etcetera do make their lodgings there, but it’s also based on ordinary people who make their living hunting down the supernatural horrors of the dark. To their chagrin, sometimes they have had to make morally questionable decisions in order to survive or save the town.

A new religion is at odds with several other local Christian Churches, Voudo and secretive occult traditions. This religion worships a Pantheon of alien, ineffable creatures and monsters that consider most Humans nothing more than bugs to be crushed underneath their boots if they are to be noticed at all.

Normal people, who have no idea that the place inside our country they inhabit is now a festering Hellhole of demons and supernatural insanity, are about to receive a rude awakening about the reality of the universe. They must gather with each other to survive.

Sorry you have a point. grin

One introductory post, your every day lives. No Freddy Krueger chases or anything yet. . . then a small profile. Your name, age, sex, a small history, and personality. ((Also, appearance)).

Alrighty, I’ll get to work on that. Are there any limitations, like on species and (since this site’s obsessed with them) abilities?

Frig, I was thinking about being an angel or something to restore faith in the older religions while this new one is trying to take over ^^"

And your new religion sounds vaguely Lovecraftian XD

Age: 19

Hair Color: Brown

Eye Color: Brown

Height: 5’11”

Occupation: Works at a small local restaurant, saving up to get a higher education

Personality: Mildly antisocial. While he tends to get along well in social situations, he occasionally fins himself faking emotions to get others to act a certain way. Has a few friends, but tends to not branch much outside of this group, so if one wants to befriend him they will have to make the first move. Likes to relax with friends, but when it comes to actual work he prefers to be alone. Outside of this streak his mental health is normal, and he is considered quite friendly by those who take the time to get to know him.

Other: Insomniac, takes melatonin to fall asleep at night. Lives on his own. Has attempted various drugs in the past, specifically psychedelics such as LSD, but currently does not do any drugs or take any medication besides melatonin.

Accepted. . . grin

Okay so guys . . . should know, Witches and the like do exist, but most of them aren’t your local Wiccan teen or even a practicioner of Gardnerian style magic. It’s all in-universe, although “Witches' might have contacts with the real deal who can help them learn a little hear and there.

Also, the weird magicks of Lovecraftian like monsters are “available”. For a little bit thought, you’ll need to make do with ammo, axes, etcetera. And running away, hiding/etcetera.

Of course. If we started of being able to go toe-to-tentacle with Lovecraftian horrors right of the bat, it wouldn’t really be a “horror” RP.

When will the RP start up?

Rep: 107

Name: Mike Addison
Age: 23
Sex: Male
History: Mike is a Mafia rank with a blurred line of judgement on the margins of loyalty and betrayal. He is very capable and can do more than hold his own in a fight, and is mostly cooperative with other members and obedient to his boss. But he’s willing to sell out his comrades when the opportunity is favorable. He has only stayed in the boss’s good graces because he is good at making incidents look like accidents and framing others for his shadowy deeds when necessary.
Appearance: Tall, with short blonde hair and blue eyes, wears a pinstripe suit with a matching fedora and black dress shoes.

Alright now the rest of you can catch up if you want. . .

The City of Scanton, once a small town of only less than a hundred thousand less than fifty years ago. The City grew from around three quarters of a hundred thousand to five hundred thousand inhabitants because of job opportunities, lush, brilliant scenery near other states in California, close proximity to other cities, softer earth quakes, which can do happen, close proximity to Las Vegas in Nevada up north, cheaper land prices than other areas in California, and of course other reasons.

Scanton had a twenty year phase as a University Town.
These days, however, there are more than a few problems arriving in the city. Few murders as far as anyone knows, a mildly annoying mugging problem, and rising recreational drug use, due to it’s close proximity to Nevada, and of course things the whole country is suffering from, teen pregnancy, etcetera.

But there’s more to this high quality city than meets the eye. People aren’t just dying from the occasional mugging gone wrong, revenge killings in a heat of passion, hate crimes, etcetera. People are dropping like flies in a way the city has never seen. No one knows what’s going on.

However, at the moment, our protagonists don’t know a damn thing about the things that go bump in the night. Right now, there is a Film Festival being held in Scanton , near a large theater, while there are tents and vendors outside, showing films of many genres.

There are nearby arcades for those who are interested.
