If anyone wants it, my blog has a book people might want to use:
It's called "The Walking Willow; A Legacy of Murder Throughout the Ages" and was written by a H.R. Bleakley (not his real name). It's a study of Slendy activity, and analysis/theorizing. Rather similar to The Navidson Record. It's rather show-offishly written, often wrong and lacks editing, but it's still too close to the truth to be safe to read. It WILL be enough to tempt Slendy; indeed, that's actually why it was made. I've used excerpts on my blog. To make sure you don't contradict anything, the entries are in may, and all begin with page numbers.

Oh, and there are only, like 40 copies. No-one would publish it after people started disappearing.

Feel free to use for all your mythology needs!

There'll be more for this thread from my blog once it's done.

That sounds exactly like something my character would search out, though I'll probably have him fail at it. My guy doesn't actively venture into the slender world enough to get his hands on such a rare item, although I would love to see him stumble across an oppertunity and than miss out on the actual sucess.

As for you Omega, I will find a way to write you in without killing you or diminishing your seeming god powers, but I haven't figured out anything suitable, yet.

This was written up with the Fear Mythos in mind, but a creepy ass TV channel would probably work in pure Slenderman as well.

I was just thinking today about the implications of my having given the Wooden Girl her own TV channel (Candle Cove currently broadcasts on Tower TV). It's got to show more than Candle Cove, right? It gives a nice vector for creepy things too, your character is sitting at home or in a hotel room channel surfing and all of a sudden they flip to something absolutely terrifying.

My current thoughts on Tower TV:

Any television can receive Tower TV. Even if they can't get any other channel, especially if they can't get any other channel. They don't need cable, they don't
need to be connected to an antenna, they just pick it up. It only comes in on channels that would otherwise be static, or the message your cable box gives you when you tune to a channel you don't get. Usually their programs will not show up in the program guide on your cable box (exception is when it's scarier to list the titles of upcoming programs).

Who can see tower TV? Children. Adults who watched Candle Cove as children (it often appears to be staticy to this group, but they can see it). The chronically sleep deprived. Those teetering on the edge of sanity.

What does Tower TV show? Well, Candle Cove every weekday at 4:30. Other than that?

A game show where all the contestants are "dressed as puppets". The questions (asked by a voice off camera. Only the "contestants" are ever seen) are fiendishly difficult and often misleading. There's no mention of what the contestants can win or what happens when they answerer incorrectly but whenever they get a question wrong (frequently) they become more and more distressed eventually breaking down and begging to be allowed to leave. They are never allowed to leave.

Infomercials hawking deranged and depraved products and services.

News footage of disasters/riots/murders caught live on film. Some that haven't happened (yet), some that happened in the past (like their recent coverage of Pompey), some that as far as people know never happened.

The "lost episodes" that creepy pasta's are written about.

The events of your blog, or other parts of your life. You've never seen anyone filming you, but they're showing footage of things in your past (recent or distant).

And as long as they had something She wanted I'm sure the other Fears could have shows on the channel as well.

I'd originally thought of it as actual video footage of your life. On the other hand a puppet show of your life, especially if the puppets looked freakishly accurate, could be even creepier.

Hell someone might even be able to get a blog out of the idea of someone buying something from one of Tower TV's infomercials and the fallout the item/service causes.

I think I may mention how Tower TV (along with Fox News and a whole variety of other things) just can't be picked up in Slender Falls. But nothing more.

I like the idea of Tower TV too, especially since The Wooden Girl is about controlling and one of the overall themes of my blog verse is going to be about people's lives getting controlled and led. Definitely pretty creepy stuff Hunter.

Anymore information you can share on it? Is it currently solely The Wooden Girl's?

Do you need comic relief?

I intorduce to you two Public Domian characters.

Barry, aka "The Masque of Red Death"- Proxy who is a Poe fanatic. His modus operandi is tacking while shouting Poe one liners and preferably, trying to seal people into walls. Masonry is his hobby. He's a comic relief character in my blog but he's reworkable, as long as he doesn't die.

"Richard" aka "Hellsing" the proxy hunter. He's an imcompetent slightly overweight proxy hunter who has never actually killed anyone. He talks a big game. Active around New York, and the surrounding states. Again, do not kill, but if you want a villian for your proxy blog or comic relief for your runnerblog, he's available. There is a deeper story to him that is spoilers For Strike the Set.

Wow, didn't know she had so many in-game fans! :trollface:

Anyway, is it possible to, you know, put the opposite here? Like...declare something to be reverse open source so that NOBODY can use them? Because I really want to put protagonists becoming fears/manufactured fears/blogs being written by fears/just making fears up whenever you want to up on that list.

Right now yeah it's the Wooden Girls channel, it's primary reason for existing is to broadcast Candle Cove (which in my blog is a show that makes the children watching it easier for her to influence for the rest of their lives). However like I said as long as they have something she wants (information, minions that would be useful to her) she could let just about anyone have some time on the station. If you have any specific questions let me know and I'll try to come up with an answer. Everything you see in this thread is what I have hammered out at the moment.

So does this mean that someone (like a young child) could be watching Tower TV and someone else would walk by and see them just looking at static? Or if you and someone who can see the channel are watching together does that mean you become infected as well?

If someone who doesn't fit in the groups that can see Tower TV walks by while someone who can is watching then yes they just see a person starring at static (or on a cable TV the message you get when you tune to a channel that you aren't paying for), just like the end of the Candle Cove creepypasta.

Works best that way. Part of what made Candle Cove so creepy is the fact that most people have actually heard stories like that. Friend of my dad has a young daughter who has watched static on a screen and claimed to be watching a cartoon. I've been told that I myself when I was a kid had the TV on static too sometimes.

Anyway for another question to help with making a decision. All current shows are to do with Wooden Girl then, would any of the shows be shared with another Fear or would it be whole new shows for a different Fear?

Not necessarily all Wooden Girl shows, but the bulk of them. I left it open precisely so other people could add Slender content or other Fear content as they need it. It's just that she's in ultimate control of what get aired. So you're not going to see anything on Tower TV that's anti-Wooden Girl. The Archangel for example could have a show (shared with her, shared with another fear, or all on his own) but she would probably frown on any overt attempts to entice people to embrace him. Unless you're using the puppet show option described above the "showing events that happened in your blog" option is probably done by whatever is stalking you (even with the puppet option they probably were involved). The products and services could be sold by anyone, possibly someone who appears to be a normal human even. As for the news . . . why is that man reporting on the Chicken Pox epidemic wearing a bird mask?

That last part is brilliant. So, so brilliant. I can picture it now.

Thanks for this, gives a lot to think about and helps me start dwelling on possible uses and ideas now.

YES PLEASE. I mean, the Fears themselves are Open Source, so this probably comes with the territory, but just making up new Fears randomly or turning your character into a Fear seems to be cheapening the actual concept. But what the heck, Sturgeon's Law, right?

...Parody/Satire/Comedy is almost always an exception. One Sexy Puppet gets by because 1. it isn't trying to be a serious work and 2. it's an established Fear and not just "Well, I want superpowers/to jump on the bandwagon/to purposely be a terrible writer so my protagonist is a fear now!"

as much as I like the Wooden Girl getting to people via a Candle Cove style show, I don't think Fear TV is a good idea. It's gimmicky and uninspired.

Granted I don't know a lot about the Fears but it seems to me that for at least the Archangel, he'd be more focused on getting a church going, or overthrowing the Pope or something.

Well my suggestions of specific shows for Archangel were mostly in jest. I don't know what he'd do with TV time if he got some I just wanted to be clear that if a blogger had a good idea he could get some time on the channel. Aside from being the channel that Candle Cove is airing on in my blog I was just offering it up as a possible established vehicle to have a character channel surf to something plot advancing, horrifying, or preferably both.

SO.

Whoever followed my blog also witnessed the making of the proxy Pion (French for "Pawn"). He is up for free use by anyone.

Pion is a young man of about 18 years with a short goatee and brown hair. He's got a solid body structure with slight muscles and tends to wear baggy pants and plain hoodies or t-shirts. I will later update this post with a picture of his mask, but he doesn't use it as often as your regular proxy. His eye colour is a greyish blue.

He's semi-conscious while at work - he rarely talks and if he does, he does so in French, usually using short words as a response, even though he can understand what people say to him in English. His face will have a pretty blank expression, although it appears a little bit sad sometimes.

When he snaps out of it - which rarely happens - he talks in broken English and appears very scared. He will also protect his cell phone by all means, as it is the only way of communication with someone important to him.

If you need any more information on him, just contact me. :3

Joe Smokes, a homeless runner who has been running from Slender Man since the month of May of the year 2008(he started seeing him in mid July of the year 2007) is up for grabs to be cameo'd or killed off. Whatever anyone deems necessary :3

He hasn't actually stayed around long my blog long, but he's a drifter. He did what he needed to do. Joe's a drifter sort of guy, who's really against taking charity unless he knows that someone is generally a caring soul. Usually all he really wants is to have someone talk to him and listen to him sing. Joe is a very musical oriented person who enjoys 80s rock, classical rock, old country music, and classical music. He connects well with anyone who has some level of respect for music, especially people who happened to be studying it.

Joe once studied to become a Music Composition professor until money issues and the death of his parents completely fucked things over for both him and his little sister. He gets very emotional whenever anyone asks about his family, so a character should approach that subject with care. He may babble every now and then about how he "couldn't save her" or something about the trees. In general he switches between the mindset of a maddened man and the mindset of a music nerd.

He is a bearded auburn haired man with sky blue eyes who
wears a green Mariners cap and wears a plaid red and black flannel shirt
and ripped jeans along with brown tattered work shoes. He looks as if he hadn't showered in a long time. His preferred methods of eating tend to be uncooked canned foods, or anything he finds in the trash. Every now and then he'll raid a store for some cans to stack in his backpack (as of right now he's without a backpack, but he'll probably find a new one eventually anyways).

Joe is also old fashioned, so he will attempt to hitchhike, whether or not it works isn't an issue for him.

Otherwise, he'll sit on some random bench in the street, staring at everyone, singing, shouting nonsense, start up the usual ruckus until the police comes and usher him away. His preferred places to rest involve bridges which he is also obsessed with. On that note, silent scares the crap out of him. Also empty places.

He does not refer to the Slender Man as "Slender Man", instead he calls him either "Beast" or "Demon" or "Thing". If a character calls him "Slender Man" he'll just lecture them about how it's not actually a "man" (he gets very pretentious about this stuff).

He also takes offense at being called "crazy" or "insane".

In his words, he's "Just your average Joe."

A knowledge of braille and music notes is a definite plus since he writes in his own unique form of code. He's by no means a proxy, but he is paranoid. He hates the Slender Man with a passion, mainly because he knows it's impossible to escape. But he is more than happy to travel all for corners of the Earth until he finally dies. Until then, he subconsciously warns as many people as he can through his music, on his search for people who would listen to his story.

If there's anyone who's interested in giving him a cameo I'm more than happy to give as much background info as needed Smile

As of now, Thage can be safely considered and treated as open-source, so can Fizzbomb. All I ask is you give those two the same loving handling I gave them (or tried to, to varying degrees of success) and not, like, suddenly have Fizzbomb dressing up like a gothic lolita or Thage becoming a hip-hop superstar.
