____The Suicidal Clock Chime____
Close your eyes

Death follows life, keeping beat with heavy foot steps. From the moment we are born we are dying. Simply put, death comes to us all. But so does guilt and anger.

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces
Bright and early for the daily races
Going no where
Going no where
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression
No expression
Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow
No tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday
Happy birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen
Sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me
And I find I kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles its a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Enlarging your world
Mad world

____The present____
Sleep dormant

This story is one that starts not at the beginning or end, but the middle.

The unpaved streets are slowly giving way to the hard concrete of modern cancer. The land of bright lights and dim alley ways await you. This is where you live your character's life, day to day. Memories have their way of being scrubbed away in this city, the heart beat of the glittering metropolis made up of current hopes and dreams. It is very easy to find yourself lost in this melting pot of culture borrowed, old, and new.

As humans, we are mostly concerned with our present lives and our futures, our pasts a fog which hangs over us like moss, a topic of conversation over coffee.

Welcome to Silent Hill.

The nightmare song

Welcome to Silent Hill.
Welcome to questions with answers whispered on the wind.
Welcome to darkness that over powers dawn.
"There are motherless children crying, and husbands with no morals.
They have all forgotten me.
But I still remember you.

I remember you as well as I remember 'that place'.

What is it that you will have died for, faithless one?
The namless god is vomiting, heavy with child. A child that will play in the garden of good and evil. But oh how she will smile.

In that place where my heart was forced to no longer beat, plant a seed in the ground that has grown cold. Warm it with the blood of the the lamb, and lament not the loss. Sorrow will become the magpies that feast on the eyes of beauty."

Faith. A word that is made up of only five letters is a word that carries with it the entire world. Faith is that which makes us or breaks us. Faith has equal parts in war and peace. Faith is something that is as easily tainted as it can be changed. Whore is faith, as everyone has had her at one time or another.
Raise up your hands and take faith by the throat, for faith has never held any stock in YOU. If there is a god, perhaps there has been a time where you did not believe that it was listening?
We have all asked:
"Why me?"
"Why her?"
"Why now?"
As we sob we ask a multitude of questions. But the one remains, "Why have you forsaken me?"
Everything has a beginning and an end. Trembling, a blood soaked finger reaches out from the time that came before-stopping the clock. She missed him. She wants nothing more than to feel his arms around her once more. Her bones are as broken as her hopes as she lays in a pool of her own blood. Why her? Why someone so innocent?
There is a pattern to madness, and she fit the bill. His hunger for her would set into motion a story which would forever change the face of religion.
His love, his life-- the first sacrifices to greedy gods.

Welcome home?

____Out of Character____
Liner notes

Normal Silent HIll will contain its own seperate growth and story line. Not all characters who participate in the normal story line has to have a part in the Nightmare story line. Like the Silent Hill games , Nightmare Silent Hill isn't always avaliable.

More locations and story lines may be added at any time, please post requests in the Out of character community. If at any point another community is needed to house part of this game, they will be made.

This game is one for original characters only, although inspired by the video game inspired (that means no copyrighted characters). An in character journal is required and must be updated at least once a month. Activity within the community journal is expected to be more frequent than that, however.

If you need to take leave from the game, for whatever reason, please let either esperandote or thebitterseason know. It is good etiquette to let others know when you will be absent from the game. Those who go six weeks without updates in either journal (community and personal) will be given warnings.

  • 1st warning

  • Chances to come back into action or go on LOA status. Given after 6 weeks
  • 2nd warning

  • Chances to come back into action or go on LOA status. Given after additional 4 weeks
  • 3rd, and subsequenty final, warning

  • By this point the player has said nothing and had been out of the game for 10 consecutive weeks. Character is then written out of the game, also removed from all communities.

    The nitty gritty

    1;No trolling
    2;No flamming
    3;No sticky paws/thivery
    4;Game is rated Mature, so act that way
    5;Take out of character arguments to the proper messengers
    6;Listen to the game Admins and mods, not doing so will result in banning
    7;If you want to promote your own game here, ask permission first! We deal in banner/button exchanges only
    8;If you have a problem with another player that can not be resolved between you and that player, then the admins and mods will intervene
    9; When in the in character community, please remember to stay in character. Keep out of character posts within context and in the right areas

    ____Game Status____
    The how to

    Please be sure to make use of the subject section of the posting form, this will help in keeping posts sorted.

  • Short and sweet does not win the race

  • Sorry to say it, but there is a minimum posting rule. No one liner posts EVER. The posting minimun is one paragraph. There is, however, no limit to how long your posts can be.

  • Be paticent

  • A good post takes a while to write most of the time. Role playing is another matter of give and take. Give someone a well thought out post, and they will take said post and give you gold in return. It may take anywhere from 15 minutes to a whole day for you to get a reply. Feel free to read through other posts or post in the OOC during down time(s).

  • No god-modding

  • Do not make moves for someone else's character, do not make up dialouge for someone else's character. Characters can and will die at the hands of other characters, but play it fair. There are no one hit kills, no character always wins, perfection is very boring and unattractive. If you are to engage in character killing, talk it over with the others involved.

  • If posting with specific person(s) in mind

  • [Your Character] (Atten)tion [Other Character(s)]. (Still leaves thread open to others though)

  • If posting to the ether/open ended posts

  • This is simple enough, the basic form for posting in character.
    [Character name]~[Character Location] {OPEN} (That way people know who and where you are, and that you are indeed open game)

  • If your game is private, between yourself and specific players
    {PRIVATE}~[Your Character] & [Other character(s)]. (Private games should not be disrupted. Please announce private games before they start)

  • If a thread has come to a close

  • Threads should not go on forever. The shelf life on any given thread is ONE WEEK (after one week please finish up the thread and then move on). Some threads simply come to an end before that. To keep people from posting in the ether of a finished in characer exchange please put {CLOSED~} in the subject line after the last post has been made.

  • If posting items with are not safe for work

  • The real world has violence and sex in it, you just don't have to read it. Often times people post/read from locations in which their computer is public or shared. We don't want to get people into trouble, or put them into a possible uncomfortable situation. If your post contains graphic sexual or violent content, please tag your posts as having such. [NOT SAFE FOR WORK] in the subject is required as well as post cutting.
