Cast of Characters and General Discussion

Postby VictoriaSilverwolf » Fri Jul 24, 2020 7:57 am

I will be using the Ghastly Affair system in an attempt to create something of the flavor of the supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows. You don't need to know anything about the system or the TV show to play.

For reference:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Shadows

This forum is set in 1795. There is another forum set in 1967. These may effect each other, but may also be inconsistent; consider them to be different universes.

I will use pre-generated characters. Most will have their own secrets and agendas, often in conflict with each other. Expect lots of private messages between players, and lots of deception.

This is something of an experiment, so bear with me. To work out for the best, several players will be needed.

For now, select one of the following characters. Everything you need to know at this time is listed below. More information will be given to you after selections are made.

THE COLLINS FAMILY

Joshua Collins, 60-ish, head of the family, relations noted below

Abigail Collins, 50-ish, sister

Jeremiah Collins, 40-ish, brother

Naomi Collins, 50-ish, wife

Barnabas Collins, 20-ish, son

Sarah Collins, 10-ish, daughter

Millicent Collins, 20-ish, cousin

Daniel Collins, 10-ish, cousin (brother of Millicent)

THE DUPRES FAMILY

Andre DuPres, 50-ish, head of the family, relations noted below

Countess Natalie DuPres, 40-ish, sister

Josette DuPres, 20-ish, daughter

OTHERS

Victoria Winters, 20-ish, governess for the Collins

Ben Stokes, 50-ish, servant of the Collins

Angelique Bouchard, 20-ish, servant of the DuPres

Reverend Orville Trask, 30-ish, clergyman

Lieutenant Nathan Forbes, 20-ish, naval officer

More information to follow once we get some people signed up.

Away for seven days. If there are not a few more players interested by next week, we may just call this an interesting experiment that never really got started.

Is it too late to sign up for this? If not, Millicent Collins sounds interesting.

After another seven days away from the computer, I'll see if there is any more interest in this. At that time, I may start a very simple, skeletal version of the game, just to see how it goes.

Meanwhile, here's the main setting, the mansion of the Collins family, which will be known as the Old House in centuries to come. It is located on the Collinswood estate, located above the fishing and shipbuilding village of Collinsport, located on the coast of the District of Maine, the northernmost part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
