"By a route obscure and lonely"
So, the Camino de Santiago begins in about a week. There will be plenty of walking, talking and time for shenanigans, to be sure. In addition, for those who are interested, I realised that the Lovecraftian RP I've been considering hosting or a while could easily happen during the Camino itself. While things like Pathfinder are rule and statistic heavy, something like a Lovecraft RP could easily work as a primarily spoken game.
My plan is that for about an hour in the evening, when there's time to kill, we can have these short, spoken sessions, where I'd have my notes.
PS: Thanks to devius for editing the title picture above as requested.
I will not be revealing much information about this RP, because that would be defeating the point. Suffice to say, it's not Lovecraft, it's merely inspired by Lovecraft, because if you knew what to expect, there'd be no suspense. In fact, I do not want players to discuss their characters with one another; at least not before we start playing. Discovery should happen in-game.
What you do need to do is come up with the character and let me know about him or her.
Here is a suggested format:
Brief physical description:
Brief life summary:
General education and skills:
Most positive life experiences:
Most negative life experiences:
Life goals and dreams:
As you can see there's a bit of overlap for some of those lines, but it's all important information. Private Message me the information or send it over Skype.
How your character ties into the story
Your character begins on an Arctic cruise ship from Canada. You've already been to Greenland, and you're heading down to Iceland and you will disembark in the United Kingdom. The cruise has taken you to see icebergs and Arctic wildlife.
What you need to decide are your reasons for being on this cruise.
If you want your character to have gone onto the cruise with the intention of getting swept into the plot (like a private detective) rather than getting involved by accident, we can discuss the details. Otherwise, you just have to decide what brought you to the Arctic cruise. Stress relief? Lifelong fascination with Inuits, whales, and the cold? Etc
