[Interest Check] Play-By-Post Horror RPG.
 
Yo sup bloods it's me it's me it's EM DEE PEE.

Lately I've been considering running a play-by-post RPG set in the (new)World Of Darkness setting. The story would involve a group of unrelated characters finding themselves caught in a web of supernatural intrigue at a country bed and breakfast. There'd be cults, freaks, monsters and all sorts of scary shit. Investigations. Fights. Fun.


The gameplay would basically involve making and controlling character (or selecting from premade stat templates, whichever would be easier) with stats and skills. For example one character may have a lot of physical skills and be good at breaking shit, and another character could be good at investigation and logical reasoning, etc. Your character's skills would determine their chances of success; a smart character has a better chance of finding clues while a stronger character would have a better chance kicking a brainwashed cultist's head in, a social character would have a better chance talking themselves out of a sticky situation.

I would act as a storyteller\dungeon master type, mainly to handle the enemies\nonplayercharacters and maybe do any dice rolls that are needed.

There'd be light roleplaying. Put on your wizard hat, bitch.

I was considering having this be a play-by-post game, but was also considering doing it maybe as a weekly thing. That way everyone that shows up can play, and we don't have to wait for people that are on vacation.

Thoughts? Ideas? Comments? Good idea, bad idea?

I assume you would just hand out the options for the roles and abilities?

Not used to many RPs, so excuse my naivety to the idea.

I'm willing to make it depend on people's experience, there would be some general guidelines (i.e. your character has to be a regular human, they can have some background in the occult but they can't be IVANNA THE DEADLORD VAMPIRE). People that are more into RPs can fill out their own character sheets, those that are new can tell me their character ideas and I can help put them put together a charsheet.

Sounds fun but I've never played D&D so i'm kinda new to RP games.

This would be pretty fun, I'd definitely be up for. I like the idea of making my own character though (obv within the guidelines) as would most people I think so yeah, if you're doing this count me in.

I am pretty interested but got no idea of the world, settings, character abilities and all, so will watch a while before signing up.
