Saving this for later, now that G+ is dying:
The Doctor has just died. The surviving companions has fled to the TARDIS to escape the Doctor's killer, a powerful living being with bad intent. One of the companions is a spy for the killer. Each companion has a reason to trust one other companion, and reasons to distrust everyone else. When the clock runs out, the killer will get in. Will the companions figure out who the spy is, or be able to fight off the killer when they arrive?

First intro happened in grade school at after school care. Older kid ran a one on one RPG that he concocted in his head - probably inspired from an early Final Fantasy. Then, I lay fallow for a decade and awoke to the PC game Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption.
First played, bought, and run: D&D 3.0. Shortly after playing D&D for the first time, I played Vampire and it became my favorite RPG for the next decade. Then I discovered story games!
