I hope this is alright, I figured if anyone might be interested in King's work being put into a roleplay. It would be King's fans.





PREMISES BASED ON THE NOVEL BY S. KING
THE BROADCAST
They'll never hear it coming

Cellphones. Aside from ipods and mp3 players, they're the latest talked about thing and you've just gotta get that brand spanking new Blackberry that came out or you'll feel outed from your friends.

Oh, how ingrained they are in society and our everyday lives that it's almost second nature to have one attached at the ear or hiding inside the pocket of your jeans. People have grown so used to them that they whip them out in the middle of dinner, and the person across from them does the same thing -- it's barely noticed when someone uses them during social events either.

You trust them like the technological best-friend you never had, you freak out when you lose them, and can't handle being without it. It's odd the way this little compact device sways our lives. Do you trust your phone? You must if you spend more time with it than other people.

Maybe, you should trust it less.

Like millions of users you wouldn't think twice of the horror they could release upon you, that it could ever betray you. But that's what the world is about to find out. Someone figured out a way to get to this mindless obsession and habit of ours, they're sending out a signal to cause the most devastating attack that will be known to humanity.

Are you texting now? Are you talking? We hope you know what's coming.

Ooh, cool!
Your quarter. I want it. And I hope oh cool means, oooh, I should join.
Not sure if the quarter actually exists. If it does, I want one, too.

I'm on vacation right now, but I'll check out the game when I get home. :)
Maine should petition to get it done as a special edition. Pennywise should be lurking in the background at a water reservoir.

And that would be cool. Looking forward to you checking it out. :)
Totally interested. :)
:D Well, I hope it interests you enough to join.
