Default Survival Horror RP - Any takers?

Having recently finished cacking myself over Alien Isolation and noticing that the RP section seems to be moving down a more slow moving contemplative route, I was wondering if I could muster up any interest for a survival horror RP.

The setting would likely be set in the lower levels of some Hive city, set in 30/40k (perhaps some of the unknown horrors of the Great Crusade would work better than the known baddies of the 40k setting). I would name an antagonist because a) this is just an interest thread so such a thing is not fixed yet and b) what you don't know is creepier I think. You would take on the roles of random Johns/Janes trying to survive and perhaps work out what the hell is going on. Some might have combat experience, others won't. The chief aspect would be character interaction and trying to survive, not combat. High probability of fatality if you are silly, although people could rejoin as different characters.

So, what do people think?

Also my 30k tacticas, for those of you interested:

Yep, I'd definitely be interested.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

I'm always interested in seeing the 40k universe from different angles so I'd be up for it.

You have my attention

We stand upon the precipice of change. The world fears the inevitable plummet into the abyss. Watch for that moment - and when it comes, do not hesitate to leap. It is only when you fall that you learn whether you can fly.

Well, 6 is enough for me to feel this is worth doing. I'll formulate an actual coherent story-line ant such like and then I'll set up a recruitment thread. Watch this space.

Probably neither, especially not marines since part of survival horror is to instill some form of fear in the characters.
