It is meant to simulate and play upon the deepest fears of mankind, in a fashion that does not necessarily represent a physical consequence, but such that it is mentally crippling as well. Some of the themes and reoccurring features of ‘A Butterflies Wing‘
A Fearful Festival!
Patients[the PCs] at a psychiatric ward have been granted permission to go to a nearby town for a massive festival that the town holds annually, provided they pass a psych exam to gauge their level of progress. The festival they are scheduled to go to is a Halloween themed festival, that the doctors think will help the patients get over their fears, and perhaps be reintegrated into the world outside the routine filled walls. However, its not long before things seem to take a turn for the worst. The doctor that interviewed the patients is found dead in his office, and though no one knows, his death was the result of one of his deepest fears, snakes. How the snakes got into the room is unknown, but what is known, is that the doctor‘s notes have all mysteriously vanished, putting the staff on edge. Tidbits.
While the patients don‘t know what‘s happening, because the workers at the ward have decided to withhold this information, they soon become, along with various members of the town, hunted by someone who knows everything about them - even their darkest fears. Now they must figure out who it is and what they want before they find themselves face to face with the thing that may ultimately be their death - Fear.
I got the idea to do a psychological horror from Katelyn, mostly because fuck her I didn‘t wanna join hers, ilykatelyn I‘ve never actually attempted to run one.
Things will be kept realistic, with real fears, and not ones that would take someone a very long to time find. None of this “Oh I fear a very rare dogwood specimen that only grows in for a week in the uncharted depths of the Amazon Rainforest.
I do allow small plots to be formed and played out over the process of the RP.
You may die, and you should probably expect that.
People from the town are also playable.
