Brookfield, Massachusetts Pop. 3,392
You live here. Life is simple, some would even say easy. It’s a small town, and as in most small towns, your neighbors are your friends and your friends are your family. But you know what they say about small towns…
Last week, Richard Robbins, son of one of the founders of the township (or so says he) fell ill with a bad bout of the flu. He swears it’s nothing, but with Lily Naylor and Jeremy Parkinson both feeling a touch under the weather themselves, Mayor Edmund Kerry has decided something has to be done about all of this unease.
Maybe you’re concerned, maybe rightly so, or maybe you couldn’t give a toss if a few old folks have come down with a tickle in their throats. Either way, you know what they say about small towns…
…you catch a cold, it’s everyone’s cold.
This is a zombie game. No one knows it yet, but that’s where we’re headed. You will start as a denizen of Brookfield. Each character will know each other in some capacity, even if it is only as a passing acquaintance.
I’m going to play this one VERY experimental. I’m going to try to push the boundaries of what Storium can do, how cards work, how outcomes are determined, etc. I’m hoping to figure out a good way to incorporate character death so that the choices you make carries some weight, without cutting players out of the game completely. Rebirth as someone new? Zombism? I’m open to suggestions!
Just know that I’m going to be messing around with the players quite a bit, so keep an open mind.
I also want to encourage a lot of character interaction. As the narrator, I will be controlling the environment and some minor NPC’s, but for the most part, it’ll be up to you guys to determine where your characters fit in and how they help (or hurt) one another’s chances of survival.
I strongly encourage you to make up your own nature/weakness/strength/subplot cards. The ones I have listed here are suggestions only. You can use them, elaborate on them, or make up something entirely original, it’s totally up to you!
The tone of this game will tend toward the darker, more serious side, although a little black humor is more than welcome.
