RUNAWAYS
"I just wanna go someplace where nobody knows my name"
Toccoa, Georgia. the place to be. Though

that only seemed to be said by tourists.

one hospital, one cinema, one grocery

store, one elementary/middle/high school.

everyone knows everyone. A group of

unknowing teens all attend the same party

one hot Friday summer night. They all grow

closer as the night progresses, sticking

together. As the night slowly came to an

end, the group decides to make one more

stop before they go back home. A decision

they’ll grow to regret. They go to the

nearest alleyway to clear their minds, but

they aren’t alone. They peek around the

corner at the perfect time, the same time

a murder was being committed. Not

knowing how to react, they stood there in

shock for longer than they should’ve. The

three shadowed men see them, the group

sees the men. They quickly leave

and try to forget what they just saw. As

they discuss their options and keep

walking into the darkness and away

from the crime scene, it seems they had

been followed by the same people, but

this time they were joined by 5 more

shadowed men. Panicked, they start to

sprint away from the mob of men,

finding themselves at a junkyard. Then, an

idea struck them. What does every witness

or criminal do in this situation? Flee. Not

that they were criminals, but that seemed

to be the only option for them. Some

argued they should wait until the next day,

but some argued that that gave the gang more

time to plan their next move. So they grab

their stuff, hijack an old van from the

junkyard and head across the country.

Perfect strangers, running from the

certainty of their endangered lives.

what could go wrong?

Interested, but would it be possible to play one of the guys shadowing the kids?

I was thinking a jaded contract killer, or something of the sort.
Oh, that's a very interesting angle! How would you ensure that you interact often enough in the story for them to be a major role? What did you have in mind, any ideas? I'm already forming a few, but I'd love to hear if you have any! This character could be a good driving force that reminds them why they can't stop running, and why they can't get too comfortable in any one place. I really like this idea!

Potentially interested!~ Might join depending if the other interest checks I'm taking a look at take off or not ^-^
Well, I hope you decide to join! This would be a ton of fun to do with a large number of people! I want there to be plenty of opportunities for drama, suspense, and intrigue, as well as potential friendship or romance in the midst of danger!

I think he'd be a force that appeared once the characters got a little too comfortable, forcing them to always be on their toes. Potentially he either feels bad for them and is opting to give them a headstart, or alternatively he doesn't want to hunt the kids, and is being forced to by whichever gang enacted the killings. I'm leaning towards the first option, with him feeling guilt and constantly trying to justify why he's going after what amount to a bunch of children, perhaps sabotaging his fellow hitmans efforts in an effort to 'make it fair'?

But I'd be interested in whatever you have to say/your ideas, I imagine they're a fair bit more thought out then mine. :v

Actually, I hadn't even considered those ideas, but they are really good! I like the idea of him sabotaging to try to level the playing field -- or battleground depending how you view it. My ideas were more along the lines of infiltration, perhaps they picked him up as a supposed hitch-hiker where he tries to lure them into a sense of ease since he's an adult figure that they can maybe look to for guidance or protection, or maybe he was more like a literal shadow in that they saw him lurking everywhere they went, slowly fueling their paranoia and fear. There's honestly several ideas in which you could play him out, but it depends on how bad of a bad guy you want him to be, or how sympathetic you want him to be towards, essentially, children being dragged into the dangerous world of gangs and killers.

Oooh, I like the shadow idea. Perhaps the climax is him posing as a delivery man and striking when he thinks the time is right?

The infiltration idea is especially devious.

Right?! Gosh, these all sound like so much fun! Perhaps we could even do some sort of mash-up of the ideas? Take various elements that we've already discussed to make a more complex character with opportunities for growth, redemption, conflicted with oneself, etc. We could make him a far more interesting character than just the shadowy hitman that reminds them of what they witnessed. But I may be getting ahead of myself! I just really loved your ideas!

Ahhh, I am loving these ideas! I'm a huge sucker for these tropes cx
Is it alright if I add a section for what my character brought with him for future reference?

Absolutely! That's actually a very good idea, and something I didn't think to add to the character sheet!
And I love exchanging ideas! Its so fun to work together to make the story more interesting and fun!

How many people are we looking for to start? ^-^
I'm aiming for about 8 people, including myself. So I need about 4 more people to join. I'd really like to get two more male character and two more females if possible (I like symmetry), but just 4 more characters in general would be nice. If not, I hope for at least two more before we begin. If anyone else joins after we've started, I'll just say we picked them up as hitch hikers along the way.
