New Game Proposal - The Veil

Postby Frange1 » Thu May 24, 2012 12:43 pm

I am at a very preliminary point in working on a new game concept. It would be loosely based on the concept of Hellboy. i.e. a motley crew of heroic monsters and heroes tasked to defend humanity against worse exmaples of horror and fantasy creatures.

I do not have a lot of details worked out, but there would be few limitations on what sort of characters could be played. The only restrictions I have currently identified would be...
  • No Aliens
  • No comic book superheroes
  • No truly evil characters (although evil origins are ok)

Please post here if you are interested. I'm hoping for 4 - 5 players. Bassed on response, I'll look to put together some additional details.

Thanks.

cool. Pyrokinesis works. Setting will be contemporary, modern day, though details of people in office and such will be altered.

Make that three? ;)

I think three should be sufficient to run, but by no means the limit. I'll start working on details. I should be able to have something put together after the holiday weekend.

So far participation is as follows:

IronQueen
Cobalt
Liltroll

I think I'll play a paranormal investigator that used to waste his time chasing Bigfoot and going to haunted houses. His life changed when he was attacked by something and learned that the monsters were real.

On board. However, I'm commuting two hours each way this week.
