Well, there does seem to be some interest in what the title says from what I gather in newbie’s discussion. So to avoid getting it off topic, I thought we should continue here.
Basically, the idea is to have a series of games based on Universal Horror archetypes. I don’t want to use the word monsters in relation to characters like the Hunchback of Notre Dame and the Phantom of the Opera because seriously, labelling people with birth defects as such is just disgusting.
So here, I’m going to list the archetypes:
Vampire (We can say Choice of the Vampire fills this, but that’s more Anne Rice style and you can come up with Dracula style instead.)
Werewolf (Maybe Mishell’s game can be fill this role?)
Creature of the Black Lagoon
The Mad Ghoul (Basically a kind of zombie which harvest hearts to drink the fluid from.)
Phantom of the Opera/Hunchback of Notre Dame (If you choose to do this, please treat the subject sensitively.)
I think that’s all of them. So here, we discuss who wants to do what. I have mentioned before that I’m interested in doing a mummy game, but as I’m currently busy with Samurai and can only begin next year, I wouldn’t mind if someone else wants to take it . I’m a Universal Horror nut and thus already have ideas for most of the archetypes.
Also, it’s completely fine if some of you want to collaborate. Not sure why I felt the need to say that because it’s not like there are rules against it, but I did it.
