So for, Halloween, me and my friends are playing a game based on the Stephen King universe of works. we’re going for something where the characters start out baseline humans and maybe awaken a few special abilities along the way. The age range of the characters would vary. Personally, I want to play a kid because I think King’s best stories are coming of age tales, but the other player may want an older one. So any suggestions for emulating King’s works in game?
The GM, who is a huge King fan and begged to run it after I made the suggestion, mentioned Fate because he likes it and thinks a story-focused game would be best. I agree, but feel that Fate gives too much power to the players and horror, I think, needs a firm GM hand. Of course, I’m more than happy to be shown wrong.
