Music To Hunt By
"Now listen here, son. You wanna hunt, that's fine by me, butcha gonna get yourself killed if ya rush off half-cocked. Whatcha need to do is research. One, how ya gonna deal with the ghostie? Bullets won't hurt it. Iron'n salt'll make em poof away, but that ain't gonna solve the problem. Naw, whatcha wanna do is find out where the bitch's buried, dig'er up, 'n salt'n burn'er bones. Now if ya wanna thank me, buy me a damned beer."
The supernatural exists. Ghosts, vampires, spirits, malicious gods...All of them are real, and most of them eat people, or at least kill them. Most people don't believe in the things that go bump in the night, but a few, usually those who've lost a loved one to something's dinner, know very well what's going on. These are the people who've forsaken their homes and jobs to take on a more righteous occupation: Hunter.
This is a personal horror game featuring a healthy amount of comedy. It's based on the TV series Supernatural, but a complete knowledge of the series is not required. In fact, all PCs will start off with extremely basic knowledge, so even if you are a fan of the series, be prepared to have your character bumble around a bit. It's part of the formula.
Allusions to pop culture are a must, as are one liners and snarky comments. Collaboration between players to create family units is very much encouraged.
(Addendum from Idea Thread: After thinking and thinking again, and then having a friend that doesn't watch SPN read over what I had, I decided that to include more information would be futile. For those that know the series, it would be redundant, and for those that don't, well...It would be a disservice, because their characters will learn anything they need to know in-game. )
- Code: Select all
[b]Birthday:[/b] (Day, month)
[b]Appearance:[/b] (Hunters are usually pretty scruffy-looking, but can be either suave or wholesome. Details are really important here. Jewelry, scars, tattoos, whether your forehead crinkles up all weird like Sam's does when he's worried, etc. Get into the minutia. Most characters in the show have a appearance schtick, like Bobby's trucker hats or the fact that Sam and Dean rarely change clothes.)
[b]Personality:[/b] (Self-explanatory. Be thorough. Anger issues, dislikes, likes, often-used nicknames for others, etc all goes here.)
[b]History:[/b] (Keep it short and concise. How did you become a Hunter. Are you grouped with any of the other PCs in a hunting or family unit?)
[b]Theme Song:[/b] (Read the second paragraph [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supernatural_%28TV_series%29#Music]here[/url] to understand the weight of classic rock. You don't [i]have[/i] to use a classic rock song, but it would fit with the musical themes of the show if you did.)
[b]Do you mind if your character is/becomes something supernatural?[/b] (Yes/no question here. Examples include being one of the Special Children, becoming possessed for a long period of time, turning into a vampire or other creature, becoming a vessel, etc. You as a player cannot actively CHOOSE to be any of these things. You can just tell me you don't mind it and see where the game goes.)
(Pick at least TWO of the prompts below and write. Write in the same writing style that you will use for the RP. Don't pare down or conflate anything. Just write how you would if you were already playing the game.)
