This is a beginner game for players new to Storium.
Random Lake, Wisconsin. Population 8,594 at the last census. Home of the Random Lake Rams, the famous Art’s Diner cheese bratwurst, and lately… well, some strange happenings.
This Storium is set in the spring of 1993. Bill Clinton has just taken office. Cheers and Saved By The Bell are in their final seasons on TV. The kids in town walk down to the local video store to rent Terminator II on VHS or Mortal Kombat for their Segas. Parents go to PTA meetings. High School students lounge in the park and drive around the courthouse in their crop tops and letter jackets, while the old folks chat over forkfuls of apple pie at Art’s.
But small town life is not all that it seems. The local police department is about to uncover the greatest crime in the town’s history, and no one in Random Lake will be prepared for what’s to come.
This storium is in the style of Twin Peaks or True Detective, small town life with a dash of magical realism. There will be no werewolves or vampires here, no faeries or wizards – and no smart phones or the internet either, unless you’re one of those nerdy kids with AOL or Prodigy! All characters will be ordinary human citizens of a small 1990s town with an undercurrent of the otherwordly and esoteric.
I’ll be crafting the story around the characters you create - and don’t be worried about making mistakes! I’m here to help. :-) Please no players with more than 2-3 games under their belt, and players with no game experience will be warmly welcomed. So roll up to the diner counter, grab a plate of pie, and remember - the towels aren’t always what they seem.
All beginners are welcome, but I do ask that you read the story up to the current point, the Host’s Rules, and Game Info before you apply so you can jump in.
(You can see these in the extended game description at the bottom, once you click ‘Learn More’.) Hope to see you in Random Lake!
