High School. A time for making friends that will last your whole life. A time for making enemies that will haunt you forever. A time for arrivals, departures, and revelations.
You just had maybe the worst night of your life, and it's about to get worse.
It started at the dance. Dances are supposed to be fun, right? Social gatherings where you can make friends and get closer to the ones you already had. A romantic atmosphere great for that first kiss.
A brawl broke out during the dance. You're not sure if it was a gang or a simple disagreement between friends escalating or what, but it happened and ruined the night you'd been looking forward to. Whether you ran like a wuss, or participated and got really hurt, or had to be carried out by a friend, or something else had happened, you found yourself ending up with other people who are just as mad as you are.
But at the same time, you all want this night to get better. Or to maybe get some payback on the people who ruined your perfect evening. These other people who you bumped into, whether you knew them before or not, seem pretty cool, and you've (maybe) found that you want to stick with them in the future, or help them get their revenge, or some other thing.
You all decided that maybe you should try out an occult ritual. Whether it was to summon a demon, or to grant a happy future, or some other option, you all opted in and contributed.
That was the stupidest mistake of your life.
Carrion Riot is going to be an Unknown Armies (or some other system, if the players desire something else) horror multi-shot inspired by Corpse Party that's expected to get real lethal, run by some Owie Radish Jew. Survival is unlikely, and if you ask real nice Aori might let you roll up a backup character. Depending on how many players there are, the plan is to split up all the players into groups of 2-3 that each individually have one session, and, for those who survive the initial session, a finale session where all the survivors finally meet back up and try to find that light at the end of the tunnel. If there's few enough players, Aori will just run the whole thing as a oneshot.
Starting time is pending and will depend on schedules of those interested. The current starting time is looking to be Monday, January 28th, at 5:30-6 PM EST.
Character Creation notes: This'll be a street level campaign, with all the default skills as well as a Free "Bond" skill under the Soul stat that starts at 15% for everyone, no cost. Players of course can propose unique skills. No Adepts or Archetypes , sorry, although Authentic Thaumaturgy is allowed.
Unknown Armies can be torrented from http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/4996019/Unknown_Armies or downloaded from http://www.mediafire.com/?ebztbjoxuur63bi (apparently "http://www.atlas-games.com/unknownarmies/" is needed as a password, but…I don't think it really is.)
