(Map Development Finishing) The Farm

Hello everyone, I will be creating a new custom story called The Farm.
It will be my first custom story but I will work on it to my best knowledge and hardest effort, it will be a medium-long custom story with a good balance of chase, jump, and psychological scares.

________________________________________________________________________________​

I do have a YouTube channel in which I might upload updates on the custom story within the next month: http://www.youtube.com/user/xXGrangierXx

Story Outline:

Setting:
  • Colonial Era;
  • Western Virginia, Colonies of Great Britain

Characters:
  • Main Character: Gabriel Barnes (22)
  • Secondary Characters: Gregory Wright, William Powell, and Paul Hayes
  • Enemies (The Turner Family)
  1. Father Turner
  2. Mother Turner
  3. Nathaniel Turner (In between sibling)
  4. Ruth Turner (Female) (Youngest sibling)
  5. Cynthia Turner (Female) (Oldest sibling)
Storyline:

It has been a glorious day for today is Gabriel Barnes' birthday. For this occasion, his father has given him his very own carriage along with two, well-kept stallions. He is so excited he cannot wait to tell his best friends, Gregory Wright, William Powell, and Paul Hayes, who are all drinking at the tavern, the great news. When he arrives Gabriel's friends are astonished at his present! They are so happy for Gabriel on his birthday they buy him some drinks... A little too many. Without Gabriel's common sense, his friends tempt him to take them out on a ride in his new carriage. Along the road he starts getting even more involved with the peer pressure. William tells him that he's bored, he says he wants to see some action. Gabriel falls into the pressure and spurs his horses to go as quickly as they can! When all of the sudden, some flickering of light passes by his eye, he thinks to himself, how is there light all the way out here in the brush? Then, he hears a loud neighing sound and both horses start to buck off the carriage!The horses buck free and send the group tumbling into a ditch. Before falling into the ditch with the rest of his friends and the carriage, Gabriel catches the sight of a snake slithering past them, he knew it must of startled the horses, he somehow thought in all the commotion. As the crash of the carriage goes of and a spew of red comes from his arm and the back of the carriage, he sees the light again. He attempts to crawl away before the lantern they had lit burns the carriage and Gabriel himself. He hears a grunting and a large, odd shaped human figure shuffling in the brush on the other side of the road.

There is something coming for them.

Turner Family Story:

When the town was first created the Turner's were the most renowned family to live there, respected immensely by the rest of the settlers. Richard Turner was fascinated by the power of Christ, he was a little too religious for some of the settlers though. It seemed to them that every move they made, Richard would be the first to criticize them about their sin. Accusing women who knew a little more than men, claiming witchcraft against the girls. It got to the point where he attempted to kill his own son for breaking the code of abstinence with the town's teenage beauty Elizabeth, claiming he was the son of the devil himself. He was only stopped by their neighbor's son, a peer to Richard's boy, named Isaac Barnes. Telling the news of the poor boy, named James, the town took arms and stormed the house. They set fire to Richard's home before he knew what all the noise outside was. He quickly claimed his wife in the household and dashed off into the woods. Meanwhile, James had gone to Elizabeth's house and convinced her to escape with the Turner's. Elizabeth and James found the trail of his father and mother and found them setting up camp in the brush. They were never seen again. The town got through what had happened that night a short month later. Everything went on normally.

20 years after the incident, Isaac Barnes had a son named Gabriel. Along with the birth of their neighbors children, all of them being male, in the circle of homes they built. 8 years after the birth of Gabriel, Paul, William, and Gregory; Isaac heard two faint scream in the woods. Almost to the point where he couldn't figure out if it might have just been some sort of animal. The next day a shocking site feasted upon the eyes of the circle of neighbors, right where the Turner's house used to stand, hung on a rope were Richard and Mrs. Turner. Scratched across their forehead, with what seemed to be as dull as finger nails, was the word "SIN" in all capital letters.

I like the story, indeed. Needs some work of course. Will post some ideas soon.

On terms of voice actors, I will defiantly let you all know, as for a female voice actor I will most likely need one. I'm starting on the first part of the custom story now Big Grin

I will let you know, for Ruth and Cynthia Turner most likely, the girl I had planned to do it turned out to be not so good. Dodgy

RE: New Custom Story: The Farm

I could also have a try at voice acting, if you'd like.
However, I have zero experience.
And a small accent.

I'm female.

I'll accept any first timers! This is my first time making a custom story, even though I'm getting the hang of the editors really nicely though Big Grin so I won't judge anyone too strictly since I have no room to speak, I'll get a few lines down and tell them to any voice actors later!

I'm not saying you won't be needed, but I could really use someone who has a good country accent, 50-60 year old man voice, since me or my friends can't do it. Sad
