Alright, so, now we need to do a bit to establish who our characters are, and give a bit of life to the relationships. It doesn't have to be excessively detailed, but we do need to put some flesh on the bones, so to speak.

I think on the one side of my relationships, Carrie and I grew up together on the wrong side of the tracks - but maybe she's move on/up/out, and I still live there. On the other side, I wonder if there might be a love triangle of some kind - perhaps I'm madly in love with Eric, who is in love with/married to someone else - maybe even Sam? But who is the "she" - me? Eric? someone else?

Well, firstly - Carrie - do you want to be the "old guard" or the "upstart" in "The Cult"???

I am in the church which is "(deacons, missionaries, outreach workers)"

I quite fancy being the Old Guard - a deacon in a church but also someone quite high in the Cult ranks too! So playing both sides, a decided ying/yang! And of course, also a bare-faced liar!!

I like the idea of being Sam's wife, married after meeting through the church. It seems we have a baby together, but is it his, or Oliver's, or something else's?

Well, Sam, if you want old guard, I'll proudly take the young upstart! Which works nicely coming from the wrong side of the tracks. Perhaps I used to work at Diamond Pete's, before my involvement in the cult gave me access to how to better my life.

If people are basically satisfied with what we've hashed out above, we just need to introduce ourselves properly - I'll go first (since I'm first in the turn order), but I'll wait til a bit later tonight in case there are outstanding questions about anything we've discussed.

It can vary a bit, depending what comes up in the first stage. As long as we're kind of on the same page, we can move forward.

The 'Need to get the truth...' between Oliver and Me perhaps suggests he knew me from before I came to town, or that he suspects something odd about me. Is he hoping I came here because of him?

Hmmm. I think if Eric is an outsider to the town, he (she) could have a motivation for coming to the town that is hidden - perhaps related to the cult? perhaps Eric's marriage to Sam is a sham in both directions - Sam trying to do a Rosemary's Baby demon-spawning on Eric, and Eric using Sam to infiltrate the cult? And that leaves me...madly in love with Eric, but suspicious about why he (she) came here? Hints, clues, etc. that her outward reasons are hiding her true motivation, which are related to the cult (which maybe I'm actually ignorant of?). I don't know, though - just some thoughts I had!

No, I think that makes more sense. I'm seeing her as a younger woman with a magnetic but slightly uncomfortable look in her eyes.

Alright, so, unless there are any other questions, let's introduce ourselves! I'll start, and we'll go round the table - then we'll start the first scene.

I'm Danny. I've grown up in this town, but literally on the wrong side of the tracks, and I've never been able to move out or up. I used to spend a lot of time at Diamond Pete's with my best friend - but she's moved on and up, like everyone else seems to, and so now I spend a lot of time there alone, drinking. For the rest, I'm a general handyman, always doing odd jobs - replace your roof, fix your faucet, pave your driveway, you name it. Some time ago, I did a job for a wealthier family, and I've been obsessed with the woman ever since - obsession turned into something more, and for her own reasons (maybe she wanted a bit of rough? who knows - I sure don't!), shes encouraged my attention. She got pregnant, too - is it mine? - even talked about leaving her husband...but so far, nothing's changed. Now I'm getting suspicious - things she's said, things she's done - it doesn't add up. I have to know - one way or another.

I'm Carla, and like Danny, I grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. We played there together as kids, and hell, caged some free drinks from Diamond Pete's a long time ago. But I've clawed my way up out of that dump. Like I was going to be stuck over there forever! I know the best way to move on up is to make friends with those at the top. So I became a secretary. A good one too. I know when to listen, when to take notes, what secrets to keep, and when to sell people out to the higher bidder. So I joined the one group that I knew had influence in this town and worked my way up. Not that I didn't ruffle a few feathers doing so! And I'd be higher placed too, if it wasn't for that damn man holding me back! What does he know anyway? I am owed a better life than I was stuck with, and I won't tolerate being second to anyone. Not even the Old Ones.

Sorry, weekends are not generally my own now there's four of us!

Okay then. Carrie gave me some things to work from there.

'A deacon in a church but also quite high in the Cult ranks too!
So playing both sides, a decided ying/yang! And of course, also a bare-faced liar!!'



Luca Trelawny is a 4th generation inhabitant of this town. Back in his great-grandfather's day this place still consisted of just 'one-side of the track' but over the past generations it grew and sprawled. The Church, that is The New England Church of God, has been here since his time - he helped build it along with its many secrets. The Trelawny's have held a position within the Church ever since and Luca is a Deacon as his father was.

That's the public side of things, but beneath that, and beneath the church, lies the 'other side'. He didn't run the cult, god no, but he was highly influential within it. Known as one of the Old Ones they were the real power behind things in this town, especially the speakeasy's and liquor production.

Luca had no wife or child of his own. Truth be told he held no love for women or the carnal sins.....and yet....yet there was a baby......

Oh, and that damned woman! Sure, she got the church secretarial job all above board and legal like, but then she stuck her nose in where it really wasn't wanted and discovered the church's secrets. They had had only two choices: off-her as a sacrificial lamb, or indoctrinate her into the cult at the lowest level. The Great Old One went with the later and she'd been a thorn in Luca's side ever since.

I am Abigail Waite, a young woman who has come to town from a remote coastal village. There is a branch of the Church of God there, and I am the daughter of the local pastor. I know the origin of the cult from older days, when the priests were humble and showed true reverence in the face of the gods.

There are some around town who show the proper reverence and that I have encouraged; others who may find their dreams and empires changed and gone. Some stare in lust and others in disgust as I walk by, though they may not know why.

I have recently given birth, though the identify of the father is not apparent. Deacon Trelawny could not deny that the child was special by its marks, and his influence keeps me in the appearance of propriety among the dull townsfolk. The child's arrival marks a change for many in this town...
