Welcome to the Maundbury WikiEditMaundbury is an experiment in shared worlds fiction: an open-source, crowd sourced Gothic Horror setting for use in fiction and gaming. Maundbury is a small New England town. The current year is 1968. Anything written or created for the Maundbury setting must be set in this year or before. Feel free to create histories, small settings (mansions, graveyards, churches, etc.) town personages past and present, etc. Try, when possible, to incorporate the work of other authors, but feel free to deviate as needed. Any original written content at the Maundbury Wiki is free to use in whole or in part, provided credit is given to Maundbury Wiki.
In terms of inspiration, think of Dark Shadows, Hammer horror films, the fiction of Edgar A. Poe and H.P. Lovecraft, and the gothic horror literature boom of the sixties. Contributions should be all about subtlety and atmosphere. Supernatural elements may be present, but should ideally be shrouded in mystery and probably hidden. This is a town of old families, hidden horrors and dark secrets.
