Goonies never say die!

Premise
Picture, if you will, a quaint, small town. A town with a lot of history and a lot of tradition. Picture, if you will, a town with dark secrets, where the ghosts of the past still creep in the walls: A library that was once the old town courthouse, where three women were hanged on the charges of devil worship. The local high school where the prom king and queen have died in a car accident every year for the past 15 years. The theater which on rainy Sundays plays films that should not exist.

And then there’s you: the young teenagers who are stuck in the town. Literally. You cannot leave. Something is holding you here.

Silence, Earthling! My Name Is Darth Vader. I Am An Extraterrestrial From The Planet Vulcan!


Hey folks, my name's Drew. It's been a minute since I worked on an original RP, since I've mostly been tied up with GMing and running RPs based on existing properties. Though the Final Fantasy one I'm doing is...pretty much stuff I'm creating as I go along. Anyways, this RP is inspired by a lot of great films from the 80s and television shows from the 90s.

Thematically here's what I'm shooting for:

Focus on character: The RP lives and dies on how the characters interact with each other, meaning characters need to build realistic and interesting relationships with one another. Good banter, close friendships, and rivalries, that kind of stuff.

Focus on the town as a character: No, this does not mean the town will "talk" or do stuff, but the places that the characters explore and investigate need to be interesting and engaging just as much as the characters. I'll include a few concept pieces about different parts of the town further down in the post.

Realism in a surreal reality: Shit is supposed to get crazy in the RP. Spooky things, unexplained things, etc. That means that Johnny the Track Star isn't suddenly pulling out a Colt Python and blowing away the ghost in front of him because he's secretly a spirit detective. The fun is uncovering the secrets and finding ways to stop what's happening, not to brute force it.

Wolfman's got 'nards!


Anyways, a premise for the RP:

You are a teenager living in Everbrook, ages ranging from 15-19. You get around by borrowing the family station wagon, riding your bike, or walking. You might work at the local supermarket, an intern at the library, or cut grass. The world is supposed to feel like a town from the 80s era of films like ET, The Goonies, or newer shows like Stranger Things. The weird thing is, the time period is meant to be somewhat modern. The town is meant to feel anachronistic, and that is the first hint that something is off about the town.

The town itself is full of creepy places that seem to exude anxiety, and even worse, something is keeping the main characters from leaving during the summer. The roads get blocked off if they try to drive to the next town, family vacations are mysteriously canceled, or university tours keep getting rescheduled. That leads to the driving force of the band of misfits to band together, uncover the secret of the town and free themselves from whatever hell is waiting for them.

And no, it's not a clown.

Let's look at some concepts of the town!






So, that's the gist of the RP! I'm really just wanting to put out feelers for this RP, and see if anyone is interested in the concept. If I get some interest, I'll throw together a character sheet, OOC, etc. I'm pretty good at cranking these out fast. Also, if you have questions, ideas, or pitches, I'm always happy to listen to them! I love expanding the lore and I am not the god of good ideas.

Silent Hill meets the Goonies and Twin Peaks is an interesting choice.

Color me interested! I love almost all the movies listed and meme’d/gif’d, plus the concept seems unique and full of mystery. :)

Service is great if you’re calling in town, but getting calls out doesn’t always work!

Excited to see the level of excitement for the rp already! I’ll make an actual good ooc without the memes and better looking structure! And character sheets. Actual character sheets too!

Apologies but I think I won't actually have time for this after all. I hope it works out though, because this is really cool.
