Right, well I better get into this WHO HAS THE SCARIEST PICTURE THING
Yeah, take that you guys. See what you made me unleash?
Well, you two are all about movies, so I'll talk about some of my favorite horror Roleplaying games.
Well who couldn't see this on here? The staple of horror roleplaying. A group of investigators runs around for a session and a half, try using magic or just run low on insanity points, watch the party crumble and the one poor sucker who lives to tell his stories... in a mental asylum.
This little Indie game by Brian St.Claire-King is a nice find. It focuses on the player developing weird powers, and trying to find out the mysteries behind the powers, and the world as a whole. Different from Call of Cthulhu in that the players actually use powers commonly based on very interesting classes.
Well, Little Fears is a game based around children aged 6-12 fighting off creatures from a area known as closetland, where those monsters you dreamed up as a child. Very unique game in that you are roleplaying a child. The horror in this game feels a lot more real then the other games on this list. You actually were a child rather than a bum fighting off people with a nailbat.
Well, the occult underground welcomes you. This popular game runs on a lot of things being unknown to the player, in a generally weird world. This game isn't as horror based as the others, but with a proper mood it could be a interesting horror based game. If you ever end up reading a copy of In Dark Alleys, you'll notice a lot of similarities between the two, but with different focuses.
Zombies! Classic horror trope! No other game I've seen does zombie actions better, and there are many interesting options for the game, (Fallout style world superzombies anyone?). Can be modified to fit in nearly any time frame, and who doesn't have fun trying to survive zombie apocalypse?
Well, those are some examples of horror roleplaying games out there. If you want to give these a try, bother me or ask someone else. I want to try getting a game of each done sometime during October.
