    Game: Requiem for the Knight
    Type of game: Thriller
    Role type; Canon with an original twist/Original character
    Role Status: Open
    Description of the role: The spiritual successor to Batman - Fall, I seek two characters to play the roles of the Dark Knight and the Joker. Obviously, these will need to be committed players and also be able to handle the mental intricacies of such characters. Auditions will be held for several months before the launch of the game, which gives you plenty of time to develop a complex CS and style for your take on Gotham's hero and villain. There is no canonical connection to Fall in this game.

    If you wish to play a different character from the series, or perhaps craft an original one, you are more than welcome to do so.

    @Reynar_Tedros gave me an idea for a short-term game, to wrap up on Halloween...

    THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT (Earth-based)

    Hi! We here at Haunted! are recruiting paranormal investigators for our new reality show, a short-term investigation that we hope to wrap up on October 31st. We've got openings for a cast of eight, to investigate an old house (don't worry; the owner gave us permission). We can provide some of the standard spook hunting equipment, but will require a three day commitment, with a few nights spent on site. We also ask our cast to be willing to record a video diary component, so our viewers can get a feel for your thoughts.

    My first time as GM, and I am thinking of a free-flowing storyline with a lot of opportunity for input by players. Updates standard as well as via PM. Could be zany, might be creepy, up to you. In any case, I am hoping to wrap things up on Halloween, so a long-term commitment shouldn't be necessary.

    Producer (GM)
    Camera & sound --NPCs, but could be players
    Team Leader
    Gadget Guy (has every kind of ghost-hunting gadget imaginable and has invented a few of them)
    Gullible Guy (the one who manages to be attacked by every demon and screams at the sound of rustling leaves)
    The Mystic (usually wears a lot of black, wanders around communing with the Other Side)
    The Newbies (have no clue what they're doing, but they're eager to dive in; we envision 2)
    The Historian (has dug around into the history of the house)
    The Skeptic (is pretty sure there is a scientific explanation for everything that happens) -- @Kurisan has claimed this one.

    Wrap up date is October 31. Anyone interested?

    Game: Paradoxical Echoes

    Type of game: Original Trilogy Canon-Legends Hybrid, 2 BBY

    Role type: Imperial (Stormtrooper, ship Crewmen, TIE Pilot). We're trying to avoid "special ops" characters or anyone higher then a Sergeant (for Stormtroopers), Ensign for Crewmen (exceptions listed below), and Flight Officer for Pilots. We're trying to develop characters to that "special" level through story.

    Role Status: Open (multiple openings); key openings include aboard the Star Destroyer Darkest Night include:

    Description of the role: Characters that can grow upwards & outwards; we don't want Rambo and we don't want Maverick. We want...that guy who died in "Rogue One". Yeah, that guy or girl, who no one remembers. But dang it, his/her death meant something...even if it was to make Disney billions. But the point being, we want Han who becomes an unsuspecting hero of Han Solo in "Solo".

    Our game has reached a way-point of shorts and now is the best time of any to jump in. We're about to launch off into the Unknown Regions and get into the meat of the game and go towards our second game. Please PM me if interested. :)
