Ok, I know we have an expansions thread already, however its a bit messy and I know Titan Forge was going to create one in the future. So here I have created one that hopefully will be used to appropriately catalog your ideas for

1)a second season or a second session if you will, in the madhouse.

2)potential expansions for either the existing game or future ones.

To keep the thread tidy, please only post in the following format.

THREAD RULES.

-WRITE YOUR IDEAS IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT

1-TITLE OF THE GAME OR THEME
2-EXPANISON OR SECOND SEASON
3-CORE CONCEPT AND SETTING
4-CHARACTERS
5-VILLINS
6-ANY SPECIAL GAMEPLAY TWEAKS OR IDEAS

I will reserve the first post after this and the next one so that I may catalog the ideas if things get too messy at the top of the thread. I will do so with the persons name that originally posted it as credit for the idea.

1- Frightmares and screamscapes

2 Second season

3- This would be a literary fairy tale themed game featuring the twisted mind versions of peter pan, Alice in wonderland, Goldilocks, Hansel and Gretel, the return to oz and any others that fit the theme. The themes would deal with abduction, madness, psychosis, abandonment, fantasy and fear. Key themes of many of those tales and their twisted authors.

4-Alice, Dorothy, Hansel, captain Hook, Goldilocks (and potentially their authors?

5-Twisted versions of The lion, tin man, the gnome king, Cheshire cat, scarecrow, Gretel, Baba yaga, the three bears, gnomes, sprites, Tinkerbell, peter pan, and other fairy tale tropes.

6-I would like to see some sort of system where moral ambiguity takes its toll on your sanity. You could abandon people or turn on other players for bonus's but it would lower a morality stat which would see you suffer in some way.

it's kind of inspired by Todd mcfarlane's twisted fairy tales, ZZenescop's tales from wonderland series and Fables.

1-Broken Glass and Fractured Reflections
2-Expansion
3-Doorways into 'alternate realities' based off a patients main fear.
4-none needed
5-various
6-Each patient would be given a 'main fear' or something at the beginning that tells them the mini-boss they must confront.

Each mini-boss exists on a separate tile that has an 'entrance' and an 'exit'. The entrance to them are on the existing asylum tiles, one being perhaps the TV, one a Bathtub, one a closet, etc. When entering these you 'enter' the tile (transported), which requires you to fight the mini-boss for that tile to open the exit.

Each turn that you haven't fought the mini-boss, some effect is triggered in the game. This is representative of the patients fear of a particular thing (water, tv monsters, claustrophobia) and overcoming that fear, which would reward them with a new ability.
