**This is for any people that still don't have the plot understood quite well.THIS DOES HAVE SPOILERS!!!**
So after watching vids on SH: Origins and playing SH1 and SH3 nI think I got most of the plot down. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE MOVIE!!!
You can also try to correct any stuff in here and just discuss about it.

So there was this kind of mad woman named Dahlia Gillespie and was the leader of a strange cult. She had a daughter named Alessa, who had incredibly physcic powers. Kids at school called her witch and not even Dahlia supported/helped Alessa.

Later Dahlia and her cult decide to burn Alessa alive as a sacrifice for a God to be born. But thanks to Travis from Silent Hill Origins who used the Flauros (I think) to be able to split Alessa's soul in two.

**EDIT**: One part of Alessa's soul stayed in her body while the rest manifested as a baby somewher outside Silent Hill. This baby was found by Harry Mason and his wife and named Cheryl.

Alessa ended up in the hospital with severe burns and almost dead. Dahlia's plan was ruined... for now.

Seven years later (not sure) Harry and Cheryl planned a vacation at the resort of silent Hill. While driving down the road Harry sees a cop with her bike. But suddenly a mysterious figure resembling Alessa appears on the road causing Harry to lose control and crash. When Harry wakes up Cheryl is gone.

**EDIT**: Harry goes into the foggy town of Silent Hill in search of Cheryl. Ashes (that look like snow on the PS1) are strangely falling from the sky. Later Harry sees a figure looking like Cheryl going around some alleys and stuff. Harry then goes into a dead end and the gate is protected by a dead monter/zombi person. (You have to die in order to continue I believe)

Turns out everything was a dream. Harry wakes up in small diner looking place. The cop he saw last night is there too. Her name is Cybil Bennet.Cybil tells Harry that something weird is going on and there are these weird creatures around. She gives him a gun and tells her to be careful. So aftersome exploring Harry ends up in the Silent hill church were he meets with Dahlia Gillespie. Dahlia just talks some nonsense about God and demons blabla and gives Harry the Flauros.

After more exploring Harry goes to the hospital where he meets Michael Kauffmann. Strangely enought the hopsital gets transformed by the Otherworld. There he meets Lisa Garland. After more exploring Lisa gets transformed in a "Puppet Nurse".

Harry starts to see "visions" of the past at certain places. Later Harry meets with Cybil at the amusement park but Cybil has been transformed into a monster too. After killing her he meets Dhalia again and Harry uses the Flauros and gets kinda transported to God's Lair. Alessa is there kneeled down at the middle and Cheryl is besides her. Both girls get kind of morphed together and a full-grown Alessa. Kauffmann appears and throws a bottle with some substance that is supposed to kill Alessa. But something goes wrong and The God that Dahlia and her cult had been waiting for is born. After killing the God, Alessa appears again with a baby in her hands. The baby is both the God and a reincarnation of Alessa. Alessa gives the baby to Harry and opens a portal to escape the dark world.

Depending on your game the ending is different. In one ending Cybil appears alive and not in monster form so she escapes with harry. Kauffmann tries to escape but gets dragged down by Lisa into the Darkness. In another ending only Harry escapes and Kauffmann gets attacked again. So at the end we see Harry running down a foggy street and away from Silent Hill forever.... Or that's what he thinks.

A very nice post, but probably better suited to the General Silent Hill Thread (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=125206) ;)

Your perception of what it's all about might be still a bit too simple, you got the gist, but there's so much more symbolism underneath everything that happens, and also the things you labeled "after some exploring" also contain parts that carry the story.

Lisa comes to her revelation AFTER Harry killed Cybil at the Amusement Park, there are only mere signs of something odd happening to her until them (eye twtiching and evil glare FMV).

The same goes for Harry seeing past events, although he explored the Hospital's basement before going to the 'other church', he did not see the doppelgangers until he entered 'Nowhere'.

The fog is also cause by White Claudia in bloom, this plant was used by the Order in experiments at the time when Alessa was burned, it causes hallucenagenic gases when the plant blooms.

Ok you miss something, the other 2 endings as well, you can make the game without the kauffman appear when you don't help him + you forgot to tell the story of the school when he reach a bloody note "To school" + Harry also see the picture of Alessa in the hospital alternate after he sees her personal in school + Lisa don't transform into a monster until he get into the place called "Nowhere"
You can save Cybil by the way ;)

I think he's speaking of the canon storyline where only the Good ending is relevant.
