The October Society.
An esteemed and exclusive club with a private member list and even more private agenda. It is whispered about over brandy and gossiped about amongst socialites. It is the mystery and wonder of London’s collective fog-shrouded and gaslit secret societies. It is, The October Society.
So…this is intended to be part The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, part Penny Dreadful; think an alternate Victorian/gaslight era (I intend to play fast and loose by actual historical holdings, worried more about fun and story than facts..so you don’t have to be an expert on the era)…with a sprinkling of Lovecraft/Cthulhu lurking in the background and a dash of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, and gothic horror (Stoker, Shelley, et al).
I have provided an array of natures, but custom natures are certainly welcome. As far as strengths go, I want you to create your own. I’d like the strengths to be in the sense of quasi-powers, think Dorian Grey, Dr. Frankenstein, Dr. Jeckyll, Sherlock Holmes, The invisible man, Mina Harker, Captain Nemo, et al. Be creative, be true to your character, and nature…I’ll request revisions if needed.
Same with weaknesses and subplots…what is your history? What do you want? What are your flaws? Create something compelling.
I’ve added a sample of each to provide potential structure.
I’m thinking that five or six characters might be a good number to run with, so I apologize in advance for those who apply and I do not accept. If that happens, I might run a clone game…
I’d like to see players write in third person, present tense, using italics for internal thoughts.
Looking forward to a fun, exciting, character driven story!
