Mechanics for Horror, Fear, Sanity, etc.

I haven't got a full post for today that has anything revolutionary to do with 0e. I just thought I'd throw out there what is ruminating in my melon at the moment.

I have been considering how to inspire emotions in players and characters alike. I know many guffaw at the thought of a game mechanic to do just that. I realize people have strong feelings about introducing such mechanics also. I am contemplating such mechanics because of my currently only medium to role-play is Play-by-Post (PbP) and conveying such sensations through PbP is different and more complicated than in a Face-to-Face (FtF) game.

So, my thought in a nutshell, is if you don't know if you are scaring them with your words, frighten the shiat out of them with your mechanics...

More on this as I develop it,
TB
