    Ridgeton High Secrets

    Discussion in 'Archive' started by naturemage, Dec 9, 2011.

    Modern day Ridgeton is a rural town located in the Northeastern United States. It is small, so everyone knows one another. At least, that's what you've heard, being a new student and all at Ridgeton High. You and your family moved here, and it seems the people in the town want to get to know all of you. But, there is one thing you know: you can't reveal your secret. You mustn't. It could ruin your future, your social life, humiliate your parents, it might even get someone hurt. Of course, you might want to try and find out what secrets the other new students have...

    Rules and Specs

    Story

    Back-story
    Ridgeton High is beginning a new school year, and some new students have just moved to town. Since everyone at Ridgeton knows one another, the present students try to get to know the new arrivals. However, each new student has some secret; something that could ruin their life, their reputation, get them in trouble, even hurt someone. This could change Ridgeton!

    Storyline’s beginning
    The first day of school at Ridgeton High

    Setting
    The setting of the story is in the current day, in a small town called Ridgeton. It is located in a rural area in the United States, and has small town features:
    - Screenies! (movie theather)
    - Italio’s (the popular pizza place)
    - Poppy’s (small store owned by “Poppy”, a kind old man who has lived in Ridgeton his whole life)
    - Reggie’s (grocery store)
    - Pac-a-man (arcade)
    - Ridge Park (large park)
    - Cliff point (the local point for couples to go to for “privacy”)
    - Ridge Police Station
    - Leaks (bar)
    - Morning High Café (coffee shop)

    System
    Mission (with a bit of freedom)
    Scenario (something happens, characters react)

    Need at least five players! I'll start.
    IMPORTANT NOTE!! DO NOT POST YOUR SECRET!!! SEND IT TO ME IN A PRIVATE MESSAGE. THE GOAL OF THE GAME IS TO FIGURE OUT THE SECRETS OF THE OTHER PLAYERS!

    I apologize, but I am not getting enough interest for this RPG. I am choosing to close this, and I will be starting another one that I have been working on.
