|Fatalism, Chapter I: Intro, Outro|
“A wise man once said that human beings are fundamentally evil. An insane man once said that there is no such thing as a human being. Both are correct. Do you understand?”
You’ve been living a normal life, at least, as normal as a life can be. You’re in school, you’re working, you’re doing something with your life, trying to get by. You may have a lover. You may not. It doesn’t really matter. What you do know is that you’ve been seeing things in the corner of your eye. Horrible things. Things that you don’t know, and that you want to forget. And it’s just your mind playing tricks on you.
Shadows follow you, you think. Paranoia is creeping in. You’ve talked to a doctor, a psychiatrist, someone, and they just tell you they don’t know. Honestly, they don’t know what’s wrong with you. You’re sure that you can deal with it. It’ll pbum.
No. That’s not what happened. In fact, you’ve been seeing grotesque images where there shouldn’t be. There are corpses in the trees. Blink. Not anymore. That person you’re talking to is rotting alive. Blink. Still rotting. Blink. Okay, back to normal. This condition has been increasing, finally climaxing in a nightmarish hellscape of blood in the streets, screaming corpses, unnatural constructs where there were once people, and you in the middle of it all. And then it stopped. That should be the end of it. And it wasn’t. It still pops up once in a while, but that’s it. The images are getting steadily more terrifying and frequent now, becoming less fathomable. Lovecraft comes to mind.
But you get on with your life, in your small village. The time? Right now. The place? You’re all sitting in the Central Parc, this hip place which kind of sucks, actually. By the fountain of a mermaid, a man stands there, looking at you and some others at the park, smoking a cigarette. His hands look old, but his face is obscured by the fedora on his head and the general darkness of the area. No one is in the streets, and everything is quiet and dark, save the steady hum of the lights as they light the area.
The question of why you’re here burns in your mind, and you can’t answer it.
And you have the urge to talk to that old man.
A most pressing urge.
And so begins Fatalism. It is an RPG, much like this one. Characters will be entered, and I will choose. Submissions close at some point in the future. Characters entered should be regular, normal people, and have the following information.

talents: keeping to himself, thinking games, collecting old cameras, child of 90s music
reasons: got off of work(librarian), took a short cut through town that went by the parc, saw the guy by chance(or was it??)
significant others: family moved in different directions after a big divorce, not close to any of them anymore except for an email from his mom once in a while with pictures of her cats. He likes the cats more than his mother. In real life, his friends from college went on to different universities and don’t talk to them anymore. Only friends he has anymore are a couple people he chats with online; Sammy(gamer in new york) and Tobie(book-nerd in england).tame edited this message on 06/09/2008 10:06AM

Name: Jacques Delacroix
Talents: debating, science (maybe not talent but I just don't suck at it), athletics (especially jogging, have to work a little more on it though - haven't done it for a while lately... waste of talent)
Reason for Being at the Parc: peace & silence, fresh air, lingering around, chillin' (with friends), dealing?, having some time alone with someone else
Significant Family/Friends: Significant Family: couple of sisters, a brother, two parents (one male + one female, both heterosexual). I also have a wonderful nephew with whom I love to spend time with. Signifiant friends: one that loves his occasional drinks a lot, one that tries to get chicks a lot, and one whose ultimate wish is to become a hermit somewhere in the quiet woods of the Walloon Ardens, all of them are old high school friends and we all kept in touch. Significant Other? I haven't had enough time for a significant other for past months and the spare time I had I've wasted on RPGs. But holidays are coming up ;), though generally I mostly enjoy the flirting in human(oid) relations.
voila, problem solved!Rastanarcharismarx edited this message on 06/10/2008 11:33PM
