Warwick, New Jersey. June, 2014.
Another pallid day in the small town.
The school’s little league is well on the path to being state champions.
Ricky Buster’s hardware store got vandalized again—Probably by those Mason brothers.
Sherry Marigold has been voted Prom queen.
After one too many, Alex Vorren wrecked his car last night, and escaped with a few bumps and a trial date.
Today was just another day in small-town USA.
It will also be the last.
From Ashes will take players from the peace and hum-drum of everyday life, right through the eye of the needle. From peaceful modern life, to dark apocalyptic horror.
New players, before submitting characters, please read previous scenes, especially scene 1 in its entirety, as your character would have encountered the same event, though possibly elsewhere. Also, please review existing characters to diversify the natures/strengths/weaknesses.
As it starts in a small town, characters are encouraged to create existing relationships with existing characters. I will also allow players to assume some NPCs that already exist in the narrative if they’d like!”
Player’s are encouraged to modify nature/strength/weakness cards, but please try to keep your characters very human, and very real.
Currently, we will be accepting 1-2 new players. There are many ways for you to enter into the story, but currently, the group is split. Scene 4 has the details.
Small back-and-forth dialog between all characters (narrator-controlled and player controlled) highly recommended. I’m very interested in inter-character banter and relationships.
I’m anticipating adult content and themes. I will do very little to censor content unless it gets REALLY bad, or is completely out of character.
Let’s make a great story!!
