I don't know how much time I actually have for RP (I'm spending way to much time with DP as it is given my homework load... Errrrgh) but... I would still love to know the story behind Catwoman. Something with missing children would be cool, if we can think of a new spin to put on it. Hey, maybe Mr. Stewart can just make his film around whatever we come up with in here!
Mmm... Going off of what was suggested... An unknown arsonist. But nobody in the town seems particularly in a hurry to find out who's doing it, they've just gotten really good at building fireproof houses. Everything is fireproof. Nobody wears long hair, very little electrical appliances are used except in complete safety, NO CANDLES, no lighters or cigarettes (sorry, York!), etc. Except... There's this one torch in the middle of the town square that is ALWAYS kept burning. Nobody is allowed to go near it. Despite this rule, it never seems to go out. (I don't know what's behind all of this, just making stuff out of my head.)
TOWN NAMES: I like Coldgrove too, especially weird if mysterious fires keep happening. I also had ideas for other stories involving a little town called WEST HAVEN, except the local kids always called it FESTERHAVEN. "MAPLE KEYS" sounds pleasantly innocuous too. These were all names for stories I was planning but I don't mind if they get used here first.
Are the Outsiders FBI agents or just people moving to the new town or whatever?
The only RPs I've ever dabbled on (years and years ago) were really free-flowing things with no combat systems or statistics or anything... Just pure storytelling. So someone might have to explain the rules to me.
