    Default There is Something in the Woods

    So, my wife and I have just finished and published our first roleplay game - There is Something in the Woods.



    It's a one-off survival horror game, perhaps more of a storygame than classic roleplay. You're stranded. It's four days to the nearest town. And there is *something* in the woods. The mechanics focus on group dynamics and the balance between group and individual survival, as well as ensuring everyone contributes to the story.

    I appreciate it's a bit cheeky coming on here to share something, but I figured that, with Halloween around the corner, this might be of interest to a few folks. Also, it's free to download here.

    Warning! The game text itself is a bit sweary.

    A very interesting system, I like that it's nearly DM-less, and I love the mechanics encouraging you to screw your friends over.

    Okay, stupid question:

    Where can I find the rules?

    One of my favorite hobbies is criticizing popular members and moderators for anything they do wrong. So nothing personal.

    I know I promised to stat a lot of things, but my life got busy and, well, my life got busy. I'm not very active on the forum for now, but I will be fulfilling my promises later.

    Oh my gosh I love this. So elegant. So simple. So... beautiful.

    Great job. I plan to play this soon.

    Okay, I've only read the overview so far, but there's one thing I have to say:
    I love how blunt this manual is.
    If you take self-centered actions, you aren't making the group "more vulnerable" or something, you're simply making them "closer to ****ed." This is genius.

    Thanks for all your kind words! (And, yeah, I accept it isn't obvious how to download. I may try and tweak that...)

    If anyone does play then it'd be great for you to let us know how it went. There were some awesome games during playtesting - everything from girl scouts that wrote a creepy song for "Mr Smiles" to a mafia hit team that got in all sorts of trouble trying to dispose of a body.

    I'll post a journal written from an IC point of view after we run it. Kinda want to write it anyway, so I may as well share right?
