Mystery & Horror Updates & News

I've recently started working on this new section after having an interesting chat with a Member that wanted to start up a custom collaborative writing effort based on horror / apocalyptic era.

I pondered putting it in Member Wars but it is too saturated with Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder now. I also noticed that of the Role-playing Game Boards we have here none of them specifically catering for Horror.

Therefore, this new Board: "Mystery & Horror Role-Playing Games" Will serve as an extension of Member Wars Role-playing Game where all the customized non-Fantasy Medieval material will go. This board should also mean that we have all genres covered.

At present, my objective is to style it a little 'darker' tone than the rest of the site to more adequately meet its objective.

Please note the limits in the following Post:

Customization Added

Since the Mystery & Horror Role-Playing Games Board is an extension of the Member Wars Board I could not leave out all the facilities that come with Member Wars. Therefore, today I have added an array of specialized icons for both the Players and the Game Masters that will be participating here. Additionally, I have fixed it so the Character Sheets and other Role-playing Game related features are enabled. Later I will do a couple of styles for Character Sheets and announce it here.

Solo Role-Play Gaming

It is likely that a Board like this (Focus on Horror & Mystery) will have writers who want to conduct Solo Role-playing Games which means they will act characters out without the intervention of dice or other players just like a novel. To make this flow well without interruption I have just coded the following:

1. A Solo Role-playing Game will now be open for Posting by the starter but for everyone else they will see it as "Closed" With a message stating that it is a Solo Role-playing Game . This prevents other Members / Players from Posting in a Solo Role-playing Game when they should not.

2. The Solo Role-playing Game 's starter will still have access to use the Text Role-playing Game Creator as a GM to style their Posts with a unique avatar and possible Character Description depending on what kind of story they are developing.

3. To the bottom right of every Post in a Solo Story will be an option to comment on it. Of course you also have the more direct way of awarding Charm.

Reign of Call of Cthulhu

Since it is likely that Call of Cthulhu will be the dominant Role-playing Game of the Mystery & Horror Board I have implemented the following buttons and links to help everyone get to the right place / information:

* Cthulhu Start Guide
* Cthulhu Reviews

These are also shown in the Role-playing Game Reviews Board. Member Wars will also have a 'Horror' option to here.

Avatars: More Cthulhu related Avatars have been added for both the GM and Players.

Character Sheet Styles

I am still to activate all the features of the Mystery & Horror Character Sheet. Thus far you have a wide variety of Avatars to choose from and now you have 10 unique Styles to make your Character Sheet fit the 'look' of your Scenario or Character. Select one and test.

Dark Cosmetics

In an effort to make the Mystery & Horror Board very unique in its appearance I've added colors to default features to tone down the brightness. Examples of this include: a darker quote box with light text, dark buttons and the Dice box even has its own Cthulhu dice.

NOTE: If you do not see changes it is likely that your browser is caching the old style sheet, please refresh your browser to see the changes.
