What is this?
A gothic horror adventure for 3 to 5 people. Think Van Helsing, the videogame Bloodborne and Dark Souls, any number of novels, from Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
In essence: Humanity was too late to muster a united front against the creatures of the night. Now it is up to you to venture beyond the walls of your home to put an end to this evil before mankind is no more. You must go to the Crimson Citadel. You must kill Zuevollos.
What system are we using?
A wafer thin one, to be perfectly honest, to speed up proceedings as much as we can. It’s called World of Dungeons. It’ll take you a few minutes to make a character for the game, and from there I’ll simply have you roll 2d6 + a relevant stat to determine the outcome. You can attempt anything, for when there are no hard rules for what you can do, as long as it’s fair to the fiction (like you can’t sprout wings), you can try to do it. In this sense you likely have more “moves” and abilities than a character from a more complex system. Watch an episode of Netflix’s Castlevania for an idea how you can traverse and attack—you’re tougher than a regular joe, to be sure.
World of Dungeons:
What is reality, man?
Woah. Good question, me, who is writing this. Throughout the game I’ll be asking you questions, and your answers will become fact, canon
, something that immediately exists somewhere in the world. You’ll have the chance to create your own horrors, your own locations, your own historical facts, and so on.
Are there post requirements?
I’d like you to. Once a day would be nice, more if you’re in the mood. I’m going to try to keep things quick on my end, as I plan to include you all in my posts, meaning you can respond in any order most of the time. You’ll see as we begin play. Other than that nothing special is needed, posts can be long or very short as you wish.
