To Heligan (and Back) - "Mythos" Chronicles 2d20
« on: October 08, 2017, 05:05:46 PM »
To Heligan (and Back)
"Sometimes an inheritance isn't always what you hoped for... or expected"


The game is set in 1920/30's England and the game style is Pulp Horror.
(Whilst it's unlikely to contain mature themes... please expect some tongue in cheek humour, poor puns and appropriately shocking grammar in the narrative (and, umm spelling ;) ).

System: Based on 2d20 Mutant Chronicles rules by Morphidious but set instead in a contemporary European setting and run in the vein of the Call of Cthuhlu rather than Warhammer 40K. 

Materials Needed: None. Though a little knowledge of the era and setting (1920's Europe) may prove useful. Characters are PREGENERATED, if you especially want a specific character then provide me with the details and I'll generate one. Saves time. Trust your GM.

When the game starts I will set up a number of  threads in the Game Board.

1. In-character Narrative Thread (IC). When posting in this thread All posts made by players must start with the characters name. Any physical actions taken by your characters in this thread should be posted in the manner of an intention to perform, not an assumed action. Especially when the outcome may be doubtful, like combat. 
PLEASE subscribe to this thread.

When I post I summarise the actual results of those intended actions of all the characters in a narrative form. 

2. Out of Character Casual thread (OCC). Talking about stuff whilst not in character, this may include queries, requests for information etc. It's also a good place to post what a characters intended actions might be for the future and letting me (and others) know when you expect a planned absence.
 
3. Behind the Veil. Basically this is where I will post ALL the mechanics of the game in a virtually transparent fashion. I will handle ALL the dice rolls by using the dice-roller then post them within this thread, before writing the narrative results in the IC thread. This, in the past has worked well, though can be time-consuming, reduces clutter in the IC thread and time taken to generate die rolls from individual players.  Trust your GM. ;)

4. Game information Thread. where I'll post character descriptions, character sheets, maps and other stuff like that.

Once the game starts I will puppet unused characters to keep the action going (see comments above re: the OCC thread.. ) I'll treat the game open with regards to recruiting, but the maximum number of active players is six.

The backgrounds for the Pre-gens are in this thread http://www.realroleplaying.com/rmsmf/index.php?topic=9083.msg340544#new

Once the game starts I'll duplicate it in the Information thread.

Thanks for reading this.

Ok, those two are reserved. :)

I'm just assembling them into a format that I will post here. ( If I can remember how to do attachments... ;) )

*edit* Yes, having sussed that out, they will be in PDF format. Probably get it done sometime this weekend.

I don't schedule, per se, I just post, then people reply when they can. I check the boards most days. I'd like to see people posting about two-three times per week..

If people don't post regularly I'll puppet the characters until they return.. or if someone don't post for more than a month without telling me before hand I'll release the character again for someone else...

ATM Percy is active, Tim is taken but an inactive player), all the rest are available.. ;)
