Hello, thank you for taking the time to check out my interest check! I'm not very savvy when it comes to coding, so I'm opting to stick more to plain formatting than with an intricate, multi-tabbed post. My name is Aegis and I've been semi-active on the platform for a few years now. However, I've yet to host something on here; Soon, that changes (hopefully).
Right now, this is mostly just a base outline of my idea that I'm going to flesh out more as I see if it's a concept that actually interests people.
What is TIRED?Recently, I was rewatching Rec2 during a date and I was reminded how much I loved its claustrophobic atmosphere and oppressive, supernatural horror. The way it marries itself to the zombie genre in a religious take on the infection was something that spoke to me and made me think, "I want to be in an RP like this."
TIRED is a love child between classic supernatural horror and action horror. I envision the players stuck in compact hallways choked with nightmares, a constant mental battle coming to terms with a situation beyond normal reality, and a pervasive sense of dread that weighs down each character. TIRED is a story about people thrust into mind-shredding circumstances beyond their control and forced to contend with the otherworldly using their will and material means.
Where does TIRED take place?TIRED takes place in a catholic church compound, Saint Madison's Cathedral, located just outside of Saint Madison, a small midwestern town. Sporting gothic architecture and dimly lit corridors, The Church is a semi-remote, multi-story building that is home to a large following of devote believers every Sunday. Rumors swirl through nearby Saint Madison speaking of strange late-night gatherings of clergy, and a strict visitation police even for the congregation itself. Nothing outright concerning has taken place, yet. Still, a blanket of dread seems to have set itself upon Saint Madison from the direction of the church. Previously active members of the community, top members of the church have begun to retreat from the public eye.
Who are you?
The players take the role Saint Madison PD, specifically their SWAT team. On a normal Sunday night, a call came in from the church consisting primarily of screams before cutting out after the members of Hathaway's congregation were strangely absent from the town. Due to the nature of the call, a police response is organized.
Each player should have:
- A dark secret prepared for their character that they withhold from the rest of the team. Ideally, something morally corrupt or downright sadistic-- not just simple shoplifting or something slight; there's no need to share this with anyone aside from me even in OOC, but you can if you'd like.
- General information in mind for a potential character sheet.
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this rather rough, impromptu interest check if you've made it this far! I'm mostly just striking while the inspiration iron is hot, and I hope to work out a lot of the rough edges as things get rolling.
