Game Description

Electricity just doesn't work, whether from a power plant or from a battery. Local people think that it's an EMP satellite, and more than a few blame the Chinese. Some people argue that a state of war must exist, but nobody knows. There's no news except the rumors and guesses that local people come up with themselves. It is unknown whether this is a local phenomenon, national, or global.

I leave the actual starting location up to the cast. My only requirements are that it is somewhere in the "lower 48" of the United States, and all the cast members start in the same locality.

Cast members should be "average" people, though backgrounds of course may vary. Scientists, ex-military (even current military on leave!), medical, laborers, service workers, all walks of life are welcome. Consider hobbies, upbringing, or anything else in creating your character.

I greatly desire these players to be mature, and a good sense of humor always makes a game more enjoyable. This is going to be my first attempt at being a "Game Master" on Myth-Weavers. I've been a player in other games for about three years now, and I think it's time for me to run a game of my own. I'm choosing to use "The Window" as it is a very simple, role-playing heavy, and free to use rules set. That being said: I expect to stumble. I expect to make mistakes. And I expect to learn from them.

My own background is military medical in nature. I am going to try to keep this as "realistic" as I possibly can. Player input is always appreciated, however, especially if you have ideas on other issues that may or will arise.

How you, as a cast, choose to go about that is entirely up to you. If you want to rob and murder your way from one town to another, that's fine. You won't offend my sensibilities. If you want to try to set up a Utopian society somewhere, that's also fine. My goal is to simply facilitate however you choose to tell your own story.
