Sewn-up smile
Jigoku Apts. is a multifandom game inspired by J-Horror (those scary Japanese movies) and survival horror. Welcome to a real "ghost town". And nowhere is more haunted than the only place you have to live. There's a piece of candy in your mouth when you wake up and that's supposed to make up for any pain and fear that's inflicted on you. More importantly, you're left a roll of red tape. When used to tape up the doors and windows, it keeps the ghosts on the other side of the door on the other side.

But sooner or later you're gonna have to open the door.

Important Places in the Apartment

+The Apartments.
The apartments, otherwise known as where you will be staying. Nine stories high with 100 rooms (give or take) per floor. Some of the rooms unoccupied are easy to break into, giving insight into who might have lived in them before, while others remain oddly barred at all times. The 8th and 9th floors are unoccupied by tenants, and treading there (especially after dark) is dangerous to say the least. The squeak of rusting wheels will follow you, the grunts and whispers of someone close by, but always just out of sight. The feeling of malice and hunger here is more than tangible, and few can stand it for more than a few moments at a time. Still, it is the only way to get the the roof, where the potential for gardens, or a swimming pool exist.

+Apartment Setup
Each apartment is a two-bedroom suite set up in the manner indicated in the link. Decor is different in each apartment, sometimes eerily suited to it's new owner, and sometimes painfully opposite. [This is something left up to player discretion within reason. Ask us if you're uncertain!]

+The Tape
Tape will become your saving grace many times. Often, it will take more than you think to close up every small patch and crevice, but in the end, that seems to be the only way to keep out many of the dangerous creatures that seem intent on haunting you. Tape is scarce at best for the most part, so use it carefully.

+The Laundry Room
The horrors of a laundry room are usually limited to faded colors and dingy whites. But a laundry in the basement of a haunted apartment is another story. Yellowed newspapers found throughout the apartments have a front page story about a missing girl, age seven. Her sundress was found in one of the washing machines, still stained with blood after several cycles. Exactly what happened to her and the location of her remains is unknown. While in the laundry room, one can expect flickering lights, water turning a strange rust color, the occasional garment coming out with a blood stain, or the image of a little girl standing behind you reflected in the glass while loading or unloading the machines.
