Jason Voorhees Fan-Made Chapter
New Killer: The Slasher
The Slasher, or also known as Jason Voorhees, wears a yellowish hockey mask (similar to Part 6's), a black, long-sleeved button-up, and khaki pants (a mix of Part 3 + Part 6).
A standard machete, similar to the machete Jason used in Part 6.
Difficulty Rating: Intermediate
(based on the amount of time and effort that is required to properly learn to play him and use his Power effectively)
Jason Voorhees was born in Crystal Lake of New Jersey in 1946. His mother, Pamela Voorhees, treated him as her own treasure, a gift that she prized. She loved and cared for her boy, while his father, Elias Voorhees, did the exact opposite. In fact, to add insult to injury, Elias was a horrendous man, a man capable of beating his loved ones and drinking continuously. Pamela eventually left Elias to leave all of the abuse behind, something a woman like her didn't deserve. Pamela got received a job as a cook at Camp Crystal Lake, a camp suitable for young children, where the counselors were careless adolescence. Jason, being a young boy with severe birth defects, had a complicated time fitting in with the other children. He was tormented and bullied by the younger kids, as he didn't resemble one of them. The day finally came when he was drowned in the colossal Crystal Lake by the other children at camp. The children shoved Jason in the water, laughing mercilessly at him as he couldn't sustain himself in the water. He eventually drowned; his mother working not knowing of what occurred. His mother eventually discovered what had happened, and she begged officers to try to find him. When they stated they couldn't due to bad weather, this caused Pamela to go crazy. In 1979, Pamela savagely murdered every reckless counselor she could come across. She came across a girl named Alice Hardy, a girl that put up a fight with Pamela. Alice dragged Pamela over the camp, trying to reach safety. The time came when Alice decapitated Pamela on the beach, ending their brawl. Alice later woke up in the hospital, after experiencing a nightmare where young Jason drowned her in a boat, in Crystal Lake. The succeeding year, however, Alice discovered Pamela's head in the fridge, causing her to scream when she spotted it. Jason, now as an adult, stabbed Alice in the head with an ice pick. As soon as he dropped her body, fog rolled into her apartment. The world around Jason slowly turned black. The time was his, the time to shine. He could brutally murder survivors who came in his path with ease. He had one task to do. He had to kill for Pamela, he had to avenge her.

Christine Higgins was one of the people that encountered Jason Voorhees before he went on a killing spree. At a young age, she, along with her parents, traversed to her vacation house over the summer in order to get away from her original residence. At the vacation house, Chris and her parents got into a quarrel over returning home late from her date. This resulted in her mother slapping her, causing Chris to leave confused, frustrated and wanting to harm her parents, as her mother never done this in her life. Chris sat underneath a tree, waiting for her feelings to pass. She eventually dozed off into a slumber. She woke up, hearing the strident footsteps behind her, reasoning it was her dad looking for her. She turned around and noticed a man with a deformed face and a knife. She fought back, but he kept attacking. Chris eventually lost consciousness, waking up on the cold forest floor. There wasn't a trace of the man in the vicinity of Chris. She arose and saw a campfire close to her. She trembled as she was even more perplexed, wanting to return home. She sat by the campfire, thinking of a way to get home.

The map is an all-time favorite, Camp Crystal Lake. Most people know what it looks like, but if you don't, it's a map with a lot of cabins, a large lake, and a center cabin where all the counselors 'join' and hang out. It is mostly forest with trails that can lead you through the forest if needed.
The realm is Crystal Lake, which is the hometown of Camp Crystal Lake.
