Could be interesting, but I think it could use more of a hook. We know people go missing when they swim in the lake, and we know there's a green door in the sewers that can't be opened, but if the RPG is about solving the mystery of what's behind that door, is there anything else for our potential mystery-solvers to work with?

Oh, I could talk about the sightings of Mr. Aleksandrov around town.And the fact that his eyes are pure white, and he has the apparent strength of ten men.Basilisk: Dynamite isn't around here. I mean, you may have retired military, but that strong of explosives aren't common in a small town.

There is this mystical place called the internet.

 

Plus, I see very little preventing us from leaving town for a "shopping trip".

And we now know, apparently, that it is neither a mining town nor a farming town. Mining would have explosives, and certain fertilizers can be made into explosives. And unless Mr. Aleksandrov has the skull thickness of ten men, a hunting rifle would do for him. One in the brain-pan if he starts raising a fuss, and then politely ask his next-of-kin if they'd like to donate his body to science.

Oh, but shooting things is so 19th century.Nah, in seriousness... Aleksandrov hasn't been violent toward anyone.And there's always the- well, spoilers.Explosives can be made, yes. But really? Trying to blow something up near the town's center, near gas mains?When there really isn't proof?

Plus all those disappearances into the lake. Considering that rural fishermen in China use waterproof explosives, I don't think it's completely improbable for a paranoid nut in whatever country we're putting this town in to drop some into a lake on the off chance that Cthulhu's in there.

Basilisk remember that since Demons are possessing creatures a brain dead demon could just be overridden by its host, so you may want to work a bit on your plan. Dovahkiin: While I did design things with mainly Students in mind I'm open to other Character plans as long as the Profiles are well written. Those will be on a case by case basis. Also Basilisk and Ymper, you're leaving me concerned for the well being of the Academy. Of course that would make things interesting.

Well, you haven't told us what sort of town this is, but unless they have support going rather higher than the city council (speaking of, is the mayor in on it too? Does the town have a mayor?), the guards aren't going to have military gear, either. The general feel I'm getting so far points to a rural town, which means low-budget guards, especially if they want to keep it low-profile enough to, say, cover up the fact that they've got freaking guards posted on a mysterious green door in the sewer.

 

And I still don't know what country this town is in. Town name says Anglophone, yet the only named resident we have has a distinctly Russian surname.

Well, while ideas are being tossed back and forth, who would be interested in an RPG set on a post-alien-invasion Earth after humanity has barely survived via the use of nuclear weapons? It would have sort of a Fallout-ish vibe to it, but with less radioactive wasteland and more crashed alien motherships.

Eh, I'd rather not use such a specialization, Humans aren't supposed to really have any innate powers and seeing them casting Fireballs and what not in this RPG just doesn't seem to fit. Besides I already have Smiters who depending on the nature of their contract might be able to perform similar tasks.

 

Anyhow unless anyone has any objections I'll be submitting it with the name Epilogue. Also if anyone is interested in Co-GMing send me a PM with your reason for interest, I'll give you a look over.
