General Plot: Plain and simple, the plot is that Chase, a young superintendent of an old apartment building in Chicago has been haunted for years by nightmares of his dead twin sister who died at birth. Over the years his nightmares began to manifest into something much more real and much more horrific. Eventually these paranormal manifestations turn into a hatred, a grudge, an animosity so intense, that it begins to affect not just Chase, but the other residents as well, pulling them into his nightmare and resurfacing some of their own. Setting: Old Apartment building for present time. Anywhere else for dreams/nightmares/hallucinations/flashbacks. The Apartment Building is actually three 50 floor buildings connected by corridor bridges on the 25th floor of each building. Each building has its own gym, swimming pool, boiler room, 2 shared laundry rooms, and in the center of all three buildings is an outdoor courtyard that's surrounded by brick walls. It's a pretty big setting. Style: Survival horror/thriller. It is in modern time. We'll say it's 2010 in celebration for the new year coming up. My approach to this was thinking of a combination of Silent Hill, The Unborn, and Paranormal Activity so if you've seen all three, you'll know exactly where I'm going with this. (If you haven't seen all three I HIGHLY recommend that you do, not for this thread though, just because they're amazing!) So this is a completely open thread, I have no limit as to how many residents live in this apartment building so I don't care how many people want to join this. Character Sheets: Name: Age: Gender: Appearance: (picture, description, or both) Accessories: (just items on your character that might be worth mentioning. Could be work related, or personal items) Profession: (Pretty obvious) Weapon of Choice: (Absolutely NO GUNS!! What this thread boils down to is survival. Kitchen knives and such are allowed. Mostly I expect 2x4's, crowbars, baseball bats, or surprise me with something else, as long as it doesn't go Boom, Blam, Bang or Pew-Pew-Pew, I say go for it) Back story: A brief description on your character and how they came to live at the apartment. Stuff like that. Include any personal nightmares or things that occasionally haunt them from time to time in their life. The nightmares and such are completely optional, reason being: Chases’ dead sisters’ spirit is the main cause for the paranormal activities that occur in the buildings. Her reality begins to merge with ours and she’s bringing all of hell with her. So if your character doesn’t have any haunting or nightmare issues, they’re about to get some in the worst way possible. Those who decide to give their characters a back story with nightmares and/or haunting, then she will bring those out for your character to face, along with her posse of evil demonic spirit creature things (hence why we all will be using weapons later) <?xml:namespace prefix = o /><o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> Feel free to post a character sheet or any questions/suggestions. **NOTE** If you decide you want to play a small family that lives in the apartment, that’s perfectly fine, you don’t need a character sheet for all members of the family, just the main character of the family you plan on playing as. Just be sure to describe the Family in the “Back Story” section. <o:p></o:p> My Character:<o:p></o:p> Name: Chase Briggs Age: 25 Gender: Male Appearance: Chase is an average looking young man. He stands at 5’7” with a slightly lean physique. His head is covered in short black hair and he has dark hazel eyes. He wears his work uniform most of the time which consists of steel-toed black work boots and a dark gray jumpsuit with a patch sewn on the left side of the chest that says “Chase”. He wears the top half partially unzipped, showing a plain white t-shirt underneath. Accessories: Black leather belt that holds a key ring, the very large Maglite flashlight, a small tool pouch that carries a couple screwdrivers, small pliers and wrench, and a small flashlight. Profession: The new Superintendent of the Apartment Complex. Chase went through an apprenticeship with the old “Super” soon after he moved into the apartments when he was 20 and has since become the new Super. After 5 years of working this job, Chase practically knows and gets along with just about everyone in all three buildings and knows each building like the back of his wrench. Weapon of Choice: Lead Pipe Back story: Chase was born in Ireland as a twin but due to complications with the birth, the doctors were only able to save one child and that happened to be Chase. His twin sister died a half hour later and an hour after that the mother died. Chase was then adopted two months later and brought back to the U.S where he was raised in Chicago, Illinois and lived a normal life, for the most part. The orphanage never mentioned to Chases’ adoptive parents about his dead twin at birth, but at the age of 3 he started having nightmares and visions of her and as the years progressed, he just felt an eerie connection with her spirit that haunted his dreams. Eventually he began seeing her while he was awake, her face always slightly covered by her dirty long black hair, her head slightly tilted to her left, and her skin was an unhealthy pigment, but deep in Chases’ heart, he felt he knew exactly who she was, and more so he could feel her hatred towards him and felt that it was growing into hatred for anyone still alive. At the age of twenty, when Chase got a maintenance apprenticeship at the apartment complex he moved into on his own, the visions and nightmares stopped. He went about his life happily working in the buildings, getting to know all the residence over the course of 5 years, never realizing that this was just the calm before the storm.
