Tried this before and had some people forget about it (missing 2 very central characters) sooo it ended quickly. Anyway I thought I was done with the concept until I watched "Cabin in the Woods" and my brain turned back into mush.

here is the original post

Same everything applies! Post your ideas for plot, and if there's a popular one, we go with it. We had some strange witchy thing last time, but didn't even get to a point where we could set it all up. Considerer everything scrapped from last time entirely.

Last time our starting plot (horror story aside) was college students taking a film class going on a camping trip where their eccentric teacher tells a horror story that inevitably ends up being true. Please post if you have a different idea for the setting, and if you have an idea for the campfire story itself. I also would not be oppossed to doing a "Cabin in the Woods" rp in which the characters would be able to escape based on clues.

Also character concepts are also welcome! Last time we kind of stuck to cliches (which in this genre is 100% acceptable) but don't feel limited to that! This is a just for fun rp, so there is no need to create complex characters. Not saying tropes are encouraged or discouraged, but they are acceptable.

The main five cliche characters are usually as follows (via Cabin in the Woods itself):

The Whore: Niki (Will)
---Also a bitch, also dating Curt.
The Athlete: Curt (Nuggets)
---Handsome, dumb, cocky.
The Fool: Logan (Nytie)
---Loves. the. weed.
The Scholar: Rory (LeAloha)
---Smart, Irish, and conservative.
The Virgin: Holly (Laurels)
---Messy appearance, very introverted, hates blood.

Additional and optional ones include:

The Follower: Holden (Nuggets)
---Ties to act like Curt, awkward otherwise. Friendly if Curt isn't around.
The Movie-buff: Damon (Daemon)
---Also a stoner, motorcross fan, and dare-enthusiast.
The Comedian (Always brightens mood, doesn't take anything seriously. Probably overweight.)
The Goth: Rachel (Aristeia)
---Selectively friendly, depressive, typical goth.
The Wannabe: Missy (Nuggets)
---Tries to be Niki's number 2, desperate for attention.

More Original Characters

The Biker Chick: Diz (Deamon)
---Tats, bald, attitude.
Angry Homosexual: Alec (Jimmydalad)
---Angry, smart, and hot for Curt.
"Positive" Girl: Erica (Will)
---Open minded good girl.
Rude guy who can''t get any: Luke (MrMissMrs Random)
---Meh grades. Occasional asssshole.

Other necessary characters will then be the killer(s) and one or more authority figures.

I wouldn't mind reusing the character I had from the other version:

Holly Thorwald: The Virgin

A girl with messy blonde hair and large glasses, Holly is an Art History major who is pretty shy around her classmates and can be a bit intimidated by loud people. Sometimes stutters and is a bit afraid of blood.

So yeah.

I'm up for taking part in this again.

Elizabeth "Diz" Gray - A tough no-nonsense girl who enjoys Metal and Punk and doesn't take shit from anyone. She won't back down if someone if trying to intimidate her or starts an argument with her. Has a large number of tattoos and a shaved head and always seems to wear a pair of tatty boots.

Totally didn't copy and paste that character from the last thread. *shifty eyes.*

I'll save Damon in case we need to add some more characters later.
Kimiko Kao - - - - - - - The Lagniappe
Travis "Trav" Lynch - - They Stumbled Into Faith and Thought
Cameron Herrig - Ω - Ω - Shock Me

This looks great, I can never resist a good horror movie. If you need people I would be delighted to play, but likewise if you want to keep the original cast feel free.

In an incredible show of unoriginality I was going to do a gothy character but if that is too close to deamon's character / you want the more central archetypes done first then I will edit this.

Rachel Venn (Goth archetype) dresses fairly typically of the stereotype, in black with some purple trim. She is selectively friendly with a moody outlook. She tends to see the worst in situations and people. Fairly calm, if depressive, personality but will has a low tolerance for people and will insult those that annoy or antagonise her.

In terms of plot I liked the witch idea mentioned before, specifically the idea of her giving people premonitions of their/ other people's deaths (mainly because I loved the Final Destination movies). It also allows allows for reincarnation and the like via 'magic' or supernatural forces. Magic is also a great excuse for plot holes.

I dibs my character Alec again. His dickery has yet to fully shine.

Alec Litwin - A gay boy who often gets bullied. Sarcastic and bitter and enjoys playing video games. One of the smartest kids in the year.

Depending on who else is taking part, this is subject to change.

This all sounds pretty interesting. I think I might join in.

Characters I'll start to brainstorm. Maybe a bratty younger sibling of one of the older main cast that is a Tagalong.

For ideas I always say the "Haunted House" is a classic, preferably with curses and both supernatural and mortal enemies.

Ok, back from school now.

Niki Lopez- Bitch (maybe whore) archetype:
A hot, skinny, bitchy latina. She has brown eyes and black hair that reaches down to the middle of her back. Could be going out with a guy in the group. She's self centred, shallow and could be best friends with one of the girls in the group.

As well as Joe's list of archetypes, I had quite a big list on the previous topic that had a few extra types:

Archetypes


My original idea from the last thread is here:
Original Idea


Other ideas could be a haunted house, or something like the house from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Another interesting idea come from a film I watched a couple of months ago called Shrooms. Basically a group of friends go on a trip into the woods to find shrooms to get high on or whatever and when they're in this hallucinogenic state a killer comes along and they're all freaked and not sure what's real and what's not.

That's all I've got so far.

This looks fun. I'm going to try and go for the scholar:

Rory McTaggart: A somewhat plump Irish lad with a high IQ (one of the smartest kids in the year) and self-esteem (somewhat condescending). Despite his book smarts, he is the type of person to comically miss the point and cause an accident. Harry Potter geek, unfit and clumsy. Conservative and may or may not bash on Alec.

As for the idea, maybe they're all Freshman, and it's a prank pulled by the upperclassmen. They invite all of them to a party/bar/whatever, get them all drunk by giving them alcohol or spiking the drinks, and dump them on the side of some mountain road or national park. Of course, there's an escaped murderer about, and you can all guess what happens next.

We dont HAVE to match the archtypes, make what ever kind of character you want! Also, Goth and Biker aren't too similar, so don't worry about it!

First post has been updated, and looks like we're sticking to the plot of the last attempt. Feel free to add more details to characters, we are just waiting on a few to be named and briefly described.

Do you think we should change the killer into a more menacing looking antagonist? I think the kids wouldn't be that scared if they saw some old witch lady hobbling towards them, but (using Texas Chainsaw Massacre reference again ;D) if they saw some huge deformed guy running towards them with a chainsaw and wearing one of their friends faces as a mask it would make them feel much more scared and in danger. Also, how does the killer kill people again? I forgot. XD

It'll be menacing.

Also if we are sticking with the College class scenario, MrMissMrs Random 's character is going to need to change. I'll be handling the professor, I'll be handling the ghost lady, and if we are still missing any of the main cliche characters (right now I think we just need jock) I'll take that role as well.
