Penny Dreadful-esque Inspired Supernatural Thriller
The year is 1905, The Gilded Age;

When Unknown hands, pulling strings from the shadows, cause Empires to rise or fall.
While the wealthy meet behind closed doors; playing games of chance with the lives of lesser men, an ancient evil begins to stir.
As Nations build their war machines, and technology extends the reach of Death, alliances are forged and broken.

The line is drawn, the die is cast.  As the world hurtles obliviously toward the abyss, and primeval powers from beyond the stars awaken, What will YOU do?



"Long-Shadows: Horror The Gilded Age" is a Post Victorian (Edwardian) inspired supernatural horror thriller; Taking elements from Classic & Modern sources and weaving them into a fascinating and vibrant game setting.
[that we hope you will enjoy] .

It runs on player friendly Unisystem (Cinematic), which is easy to learn for even novice players.
[It's so much fun.  Please join us.]

The GM's are experienced (over 20 years running games), and responsible for several long running games on RPOL.
[...we have puppies =) ]


New players wishing to join should submit 3-4 character concepts for us to consider.  Once we (Player and GMs) agree on a character concept that will be a good fit, character creation can begin.
 [...and ice cream]


What I'm looking for:
o  Serious players who want to work with me to create this game world.
o  Players who are willing and able to post at least once daily on weekdays.
o  Players who can and will post at the very least two hundred and fifty words.
o  Players who know how to use spell check.
o  Players who love a Supernatural Horror setting and want to contribute to an ongoing, ever expanding story and develop their characters.
[I can't believe you need more convincing.]







What you can expect from me:
o  I will post often.
o  I will never kill your character outright unless I believe it to be abandoned. If you die it will be because of your actions or because you have left the game.
o  I will work with you to develop your character and will write specific plot hooks to facilitate that development based on what we agree for your character.
o  I will be firm but fair and strive to maintain what I feel is theme/flavor of this world.
o  I will work with you to develop a character that you will like, but also one that will work well in this game setting.


[..who doesn't love puppies and ice cream?]



If this sounds like the game for you:

Send a RTJ  (w/ an age verification statement & writing sample).
Once your concept is approved follow the guidelines in the Character Creation thread.

[...just get in the van.]
