A plane flying from LA to New York. arrives to find everyone gone, it looks like there wa ssome sort of panic before they all vanished, cars wrecked, broken windows, etc etc. (Think final scene of Resident Evil) the passengers of the plane wander the abandonned city trying to find out where everyone is, but to no luck, they do find alot of very strange unexplainable things, and some think they aren't alone.

what do y'all think?

Whoa, what? I like the first plane idea. The Nuclear Holocaust deal has been done before but the spiders in manhattan blows my mind. I'd be interested in playing either your original idea or that crazy spider deal. If you're looking for any more ideas though a variation on the 'Holocaust' them would be a world-wide disease that has no cure (sort of like AIDS but it kills you quick and spreads easily). That'd be good for some mass panic.

yeah but however, that too has been done (see steven king's the stand) Okay well, that's one joiner, but I need just a few more before we start.

I might be interested in the plane idea, depending on what's going on, but it seems to have a lot of potential.

The spider one reeks of cheesy B-movie, though, no offense intended.

it reminds me too much of 'eight legged freaks' that was a bizzare movie.

and soooo scientifically inaccurate, lol.

Could be up for the plane one- it's been long enough since I saw the Langoliers that it's just a memory- but will need to see it more fleshed out before I commit ;)

Well the results are in, ppl seem to want my dissapearace game.

And in my own defense of the Spider game, I have never seen eight legged freaks, but everyone tells me that is what it is like, I wrote a short story like that so I figured Game idea!

anyway, further info on the plane game is as follows:

we need a total of about three characters per person. You can do less, but please no more (Don't worry about me having four, it will be back to three soon enough) NO LATE JOINERS!!! since the people on the plane may very well be the last people on earth we can't have characters just show up.

I will do:

The Pilot
The Co-Pilot
Flight attendant
Ian Carson

as for everyone else, we just need the passengers, I don't want too many, so only a few ppl will be alowed to play, so start thinking up your characters. Keep in mind, 98% of this game is character development, so make them interesting.

I will probably make my first post sometime soon to get the game underway and give you a feel for it.

Don't forget, the whole thing will probably remain unexplained, but we need to throw in little hints and clue that don't reveal much, along with alot of weird unexplainable things.

(Stuff not being where you put it, hearing thigns moving, thinkign you see stuff, finding things arrayed oddly, whatever)

any way, I'll await further input, and I will keep you posted on when the game will start.
