DruSM157 Oddly kind for such an angry man.

Member Seen 4 hrs ago









Everbrook is a small Maine town, located about an hour away from Portland. A town with a lot of history and a lot of tradition, and is, 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. Besides its bloody history which goes back to its founding in 1735, the town itself has always prided itself on being very safe. There's almost no violent crime. The only major deaths tend to all fall together, usually in 10-year increments. 1990, 2000, 2010, all had a high record of runaways, accidental deaths, and suicides. But it's a safe town to raise a family in.

Summer has finally arrived. Quarantine in the state is lifted. And the newest anomaly in the town is this: you and several other teenagers are unable to leave the town. You cannot leave. Something is holding you here.



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.

The story will follow a cast of 10 teenagers, who may be the next victims of some dark curse.



















1. Please try to be mindful about posting in the RP. If something comes up and you find yourself unable to post, let the others and myself know beforehand so we can plan accordingly.

2. Respect the other writers and characters. Don’t try to take centerstage with your character. This is a group story and everyone contributes to the plot.

3. If you have a twist in mind, work it out with me first, please. As GM I want to make sure the story makes thematic sense and is enjoyable for the entire cast. The reason why I ask so much from the character sheets is to help shape the story around these characters.

Hey, I’ve got a few questions and hoping you could clarify a bit.

On the top it says “Your Name”, does that mean characters name or our name? I am just asking as if the name section below says the name goes here. I just want to make sure I am handling the profile correctly. I also debated if it was like for nicknames up top or if we wanted to put fancy writing of the characters name but added the down below to make sure we all can read it? Please advise.

My other question is about the personality section, is it alright to list positive and negative traits or are you looking for a few paragraphs that show the different aspects of their personality?

Thank you for your time! :)

The characters name. You can also include nicknames there as well. The fancy writing will be the very first “your name” above your picture. You can use the characters nickname there if you’d like

For personality you can list the trait and give a short (1 sentence) description of what that means. For example,

Bookworm: Jeff has always been a voracious reader, preferring books over most media, earning him few friends.

A little thematic music while folks are working on sheets and getting ideas together. I'll make a sheet as well to showcase exactly what I'm looking for in a little bit. Right now I've got to do distance-work junk.

There's only so many sections!

I did mention their names, though. I'll try to mention what they do in the extra info section. IDK how much info you want since you asked for me to keep things small.
