Survival horror in a research station at the edge of an eldrtich location
This roleplay, which doesn't have a name as yet, will focus on a team of researchers investigating the properties of an eldritch location. Loosely speaing, it will be based on thefirst arc of the horror blog The Sick Land, up until he moves into a new base and it moves into cosmic horror
The station is the deepest modern outpost in the eldritch location, with a two stories below ground, two above, and one ground floor. This is the living quarters, machine shop, garage, and storage area of the outpost. In a seperate building is the specimen collection area and laboratory. The purpose of this base is to determine the effects of the location on life. It is funded by a mix of military and private interests, and is largely trying to figure out how to use the location to bugfix their genetic experiments.
The reasoning is that since the place can take a valid organism and mutate it into an even more valid monster, then low doses of it should be able to take an invalid embryo, and mutate it into a valid one. Other branches of it are interested in mining the deeper parts of the place for either interesting pharmeceuticals, investigating the source and history of the place, or figuring out it's physics.
The base is at the beggining of a string of progressively more primitive outposts, and the research town that has sprung up well beyond the edge of the place. This is where the bulk of the reserch and military operations are based in.
