Cast of Characters and General Discussion

Postby VictoriaSilverwolf » Fri Jul 24, 2020 8:10 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 1967. There is another forum set in 1795. 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/STODDARD FAMILY

Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, 50-ish, widow, head of the family, relations noted below

Roger Collins, 40-ish, brother, separated from wife

Carolyn Stoddard, 20-ish, daughter

David Collins, 10-ish, nephew (son of Roger)

Barnabas Collins, 30-ish, distant cousin

OTHERS

Victoria Winters, 20-ish, governess for David

Burke Devlin, 30-ish, businessman

Matthew Morgan, 50-ish, servant to the Collins

Sarah Johnson, 50-ish, servant to the Collins

Sam Evans, 50-ish, painter

Maggie Evans, 20-ish, waitress (daughter of Sam)

Doctor Julia Hoffman, 40-ish, physician

Jason McGuire, 30-ish, drifter

Willie Loomis, 20-ish, drifter

Professor Timothy Stokes, 50-ish, scholar

Joe Haskell, 30-ish, fisherman

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.
