S is for Silent Hill

I've mentioned in previous blog posts that I love Silent Hill. I've loved the games, movies, comics, and music... By the gods the music is fantastic. If you want to use Silent Hill in your World of Darkness game, check out the aforementioned post.. It has a link to a fan made Silent Hill sourcebook. The mist shrouded town is an obsession of mine.

World of Darkness Stats

The Stained Man
Quote: "*sound of glass being stepped on*"
Variant: Any
Background: The Stained Man (also referred to as the Painted Angel in some texts) is an inhuman creature made entirely of glass. The creature vaguely resembles an angel formed out of pieces of broken stained glass. Despite its appearance there is a sad beauty to the it.

The creature typically uses surprise to spur targets forward. It can merge into any glass and lie and wait. It uses this ability to ambush its prey. This is only a partially effective tactic though, because the creatures high static rate tends to alert visitors of some incoming danger.

Description: An angel comprised of multicolored glass, the Stained Man is an unusual site in Silent Hill... something of beauty.Due to its makeup, the creatures skin is smooth and jagged at the same time.

When it decides to speak, the only thing heard is a cacophony of broken glass.In addition to the static that normally accompanies Silent Hill monsters, the sound of crunching glass is a sign that the Stained Man is near.

Storytelling Hints: As a Guardian, the Stained Man is like a force of nature. It tends to "play" with its prey over multiple encounters before finally going for the kill. Also, unless laying an ambush, it is often accompanied by Penitents.

The Penitent
The Penitent are a group of Faceless (see Silent Hill sourcebook) that appear that are very similar to the loathsome Nurse Faceless. The main difference is that the Penitent wear sexual version of nun clothing and wield crucifix handled daggers. .

  1. Ok. I have never played this game. My sister-in-law had it a number of years ago and told me I Would like it, but I never tried it.

    I am really slow on my video games.
