Teaser

It is bleak. The only sound is the wind howling and the occasional creak of a tortured tree, its lack of leaves allowing it to withstand the blasting cold from the east.

It is lonely. As far as the eye can see there are no lights, no sign of habitation, no people, no comfort.. save one. Absolute black against a dark angry sky. It is large, forbidding but maybe a haven. Its stone walls reaching for the sky.

It look abandoned. Who would want to live out here, especially in winter?

A good question?

Is it one you would like to answer?

****************************

Back at Uni, there is a notice on the board that catches your eye.

Quote

Looking for adventure? Want to explore the wilds of England? Looking for others to share the cost of a campervan, those mad enough to consider this venture in early December. Interested? Text 08713 454928.


****************************

Characters can be from anywhere in the world but must be 18-21 and currently studying for a degree at York University.

This is not a first come first served game as such (only if I don't get enough apply! grin ) and a bit later I will ask for concepts once I have decided the details required. Game will be systemless.

hmmmm... I must be curious. I just read about the University of York and how the British university system works. I'm a kid from the West Coast.

Well fortunately it is not set in the university. wink

And you do know Dugan that the text number is just made up! grin

Anyone have any questions whilst we are waiting for any further interest? smile

Yes, I was just joking about sending the text Gypsy. grin But I do have some questions. Just how big is this campervan? Six or more and everyone will not be strangers for very long, or are you looking to have everyone know each other fairly well prior to signing up? Will the trip be starting during Christmas break between semesters or is it merely a weekend out somewhere?

I have specs! grin It sleeps 6. And yes I agree it will be cosy but we are talking students here! grin Neil will tell you that when he was at Hatfield uni and they said he should get digs, he was offered a fifteenth of a common room floor in the dorms area. Best they could do apparently! grin

I'm easy on whether folks know each other before hand. Term ends 6 Dec, so I was intending to set the game around then. Figuring a week tops. smile

Bit more info. There are two doubles and two singles but I expect everyone will be in sleeping bags as the weather will be around freezing!

Travelling is a little better as there are two 3 seater benches in the front of the vehicle.

It sounds quite cozy. Hygiene is a factor! I assume this is non-pandemic times?

a Covid Camper <shudder>, no thanks! grin



So Ken, Mina, Neptune, Dugan & Pande all seem to be serious expressions of interest. And that would be enough to get started. smile Let me know if you have any second thoughts, otherwise I will start putting stuff out on Sunday.

Still room for at least one more! grin

I am interested. always interested in the games you run.

I was struggling a bit with character concept and hadn't spoken up yet. Not confident i can do a reasonable brit character and York is a mystery to me in terms of lore and legend, even geography. I felt i could swing the the harry potter game because there was enough fantastical about the setting that I could fake that... but then i realized i could run an irish character... one of the Travelling Folk... Tinkers... she would be well used to living in a caravan. But getting a chance to leave the life and go to school- hmm, might seem like a betrayal to her kin and clan... but many youth are tempted by the modern society.

Firstly I can possibly squeeze 7 (even more cosy) grin And I am quite happy if you =all= play Americans. wink At University and not being brits you have reasons to band together, share the same interests, clubs etc. and therefore are more likely to know each other, be friends etc.

So I will create a character sheet (simple ) and invite you all to fill it in and send it to me via PM. We can then have any discussions needed and finalise characters. Still have some prep work to do so thinking we start in a week or so, plenty of time to think about your character. smile

Cheers!
