Hey, victims!

-- I mean, um, guys. Yeah. Guys. *eyedart*

So. First order of business: time frame. The preplaying for this plot is going to run from November 2nd to November 16th, with the in-bar IC timeframe spanning about twelve hours of November 18th. I know this is a month later than expected, but grad school, predictably, kicked me in the shins, and I can't get it set up any sooner. If we get the preplaying wrapped before the 16th, then hey, go us! We can push the IC date a little earlier if everyone's amenable. Considering how we're scattered over multiple time zones, though, and how I'm usually not online during the day due to RL commitments, I wanted to set aside a decent-sized chunk of time just in case.

On November 18th, doors are going to begin materializing in the walls of the bar. If your pup has an entrance post (or is threading with another pup that's taking part in the plot), it'll happen there. If not, I'll also have a centralized "entrance" post of my own that you can tag into. The doors'll lead into a long, ash-black hallway; as soon as they close behind your pup, they'll vanish.

Then the fun starts.

Like the book, the threads in this plot are going be structured kind of unconventionally. The best advice I can offer? Be prepared for sudden jumps to other threads and posts within the house. I will always link you to where you're supposed to go when a jump happens.

For easy reference, I've posted the objective list of facts about the house that Zampanò outlines in Chapter XVI here. I'll also add that magic and other supernatural powers will work to an extent, but they'll be muted and extremely difficult to use, like you're trying to access your abilities through a two-foot-thick wad of cotton padding. Beyond that...go wild with it. This is the epitome of "the only thing you have to fear is fear itself." Whatever baggage your character brings into the house is what they'll find there; it's literally a blank canvas, free for them to draw their own disturbing impressions on it.

(...of course, if you wanted to e-mail me or comment here with some of your character's prime phobias so I can shamelessly exploit them, I wouldn't say no. ;) )

Questions, comments, input, ideas for what you want to see in the plot? Let me know!
