Envoy :T don't make fun of the newbies.

Anyways hello Heartless Redemption, for starters the Slender Man is not real. This site is dedicated to the tons of fiction out there that's been created about it.

The thing that draws a lot of people to this mythos is the fact that it's so free-form and that there are very few things that are considered mandatory about it. I would suggest watching some of the more widely-known vlogs, and reading some of the popular blogs to get a feel for what's been done, and what kind of elements may or may not work out. I'd be more than happy to give you a list of recommendations if you'd like!

(And in case you were confused by Envoy's post, Slender is the name of the popular game based upon it, not the name of the creature itself.)

And you should always try to make as many jokes about $20 and wifin' in the club as possible. We really, really, really love that joke. XD

But seriously now, we'd be happy to help you get some recommendations. I'd start by checking out at least Marble Hornets, but there's quite a few other great blogs and vlogs out there. You can check the vlog and blog threads here, or check the finished series area for some that you can read/watch and get a feel for. Literally anything can be done in this Mythos, from the incredibly, bleakly dark to the ever so slightly hopeful and light. Even parody's been done with some success. It just depends on what type of story you're trying to tell, and how you want your Slenderman to act in the story, what he's capable of, etc.

Technically, not even that's true anymore since the name of the game was recently changed to Slender: The Eight Pages with the last update. So there's no real reason to call him "Slender"; Envoy was just kidding around. Smile We tend to do that a lot around here.

It's still an abbreviation of the game name much moreso than it's the name of the creature in it. And given that Envoy is known to have a less-than-stellar opinion of the game and fans who came to the mythos because of it, I felt it necessary to make that clarification.

Hey, the less people that mistake the game as being the origin point for Slendy, the better. Very Happy

Is this going to be one of those "in-game" pseudo-documentaries that treat Slender Man as a real creature, or is it going to look at the 'verse as a whole?

Either way, you should read this. It's a great overview of Slender Man.

That's probably one of the best sources of info about the mythos I've seen.
