It is dark. You can not even see your hands as you rub your eyes. You do not know where you are. It is too dark to tell. A sweet glow seems to sneak in through the window. Is it a light? No, it is merely your eyes adjusting. It is dark inside and outside. Why is it so dark? You remember it being sunny and bright earlier. You do not know how much earlier, but you know it has been a while.
It is dark.
And something is moving.

“To Each, Their Own”

General Rules and Info

In this RP, you and your comrades will attempt to survive. In order to survive, you need to escape. In order to escape, you need to know why you are here. You will need to know where “here” is. You will need to know what is better left unknown.

For this RP, you will create a character according to the interview sheet below like in every other RP. However, this RP will be conducted a bit differently than the previous ones on this board. We will not be using the Mobsters set of game and posting rules, but a more traditional type.

1.) I am your GM, Game Master, (Thou shalt have no other GMs before me). If you don’t know what this means, it simply means that I control everything that you don’t. Time, NPCs, events, luck, and the map are all able to be changed when I want them to. The only things I don’t have control over that you do, are your actions.
2.) You are your character and only your character. Pretty obvious, right? You can only say what your character does and how he/she/they does/do it, not the results and reactions of said action. This means you can’t say “I go over to the drawer and pull out the gun” unless a gun has already been discovered in that drawer.
3.) We will NOT be using the one post per game day rule. Instead, you will post your action and what you hope to achieve by doing it, and I will eventually post something that tells you the outcomes. You CAN post more than once before I say something, but only to change your action or to speak to other characters/NPCs. For example, if you are going into a room, but someone else knows that that room is not a good place to go in and they warn you in their post not to go in, you are allowed to post after that saying “I listen to the person’s warning and don’t go in. Instead, I go downstairs and light something on fire” (or other alternative action). However, if I post before you change your action, it still stands.
4.) The time of day/night does NOT change after every one of my posts. It changes when I say it is now night or day. You are allowed to make normal actions at night. Death can come at ANY TIME, not just at night, and to ANYONE. Always be ready.
5.) I will be contacting you guys separately through PM’s or some other form of communication to give only your character little tidbits of info that only he or she knows, like things going on inside their heads.
6.) If you have a question, ask me in a PM or similar form of communication. If a bunch of you have questions, feel free to make a post in the OOC thread and I will get to it.

Example of Gameplay:

GM: The sun crawls over the horizon and pierces your eye lids. You wake to find that it is morning. Go.
Player 1: I rub my eyes and look around the room. I make sure everything was as we left it last night.
Player 2: I spring to my feet and try to find some food for breakfast in the kitchen.
GM: Player 1, you notice nothing different. Player 2, you find a box of in one of the cabinets.
Player 2: I dish it out, making sure there is one bowl for each player, and proceed to eat mine.
Player 3: I push the sheets off of me and leave for the kitchen. I sit down at the table and begin to talk with Player 2. “Morning, how’d it go last night?”
Player 2: I continue to eat and talk with Player 3. “Eh, reasonably well. We didn’t find anything, but nothing found us. That’s a plus.”
Player 1: I walk over to the closet in the kitchen and open it.
Player 3: I jump from the table and try to stop player 1 from opening it. “Wait! I checked it yesterday, it was rigged. Don’t open it!”
Player 1: Hearing player 3’s warning, I decide against opening the closet and instead proceed upstairs to look around.
GM: Player 1 decides against opening the closet thanks to player 3’s warning. Up stairs, he finds a locked room at the end of the hall. The others contain various pieces of furniture and boxes.

Character Creation

Name: This should be obvious.
Basic info: Things like age, looks, and general demeanor.
Background: Give them a bit of background info, like nationality, parents, interests, and how they respond under pressure.
Item: When you wake up, you will only have one, smallish item with you. A smallish item is something that you can carry easily with one hand and won’t cause massive amounts of destruction on purpose (i.e. grenade).
Other: Put whatever you want down here.

The game will begin once we either get eight players or the flow of players stop.

Ohh Ohh I wanna play!

Name: Sharon Young

Basic info: 23, Short cut, dark brown hair with same color eyes. 5'9" and 200lbs, but its evenly placed on her so she just looks a little overweight. Kind and outgoing, a bit of an excentric with a streak of bravery from time to time.
She's usually wearing loose fitting jeans and the random t-shirt of choice from her closet. She also dons a pair of green goggles, cut off finger army green gloves, and her brown hiking boots.

Background: American, loving parents raised her well in the a-typical two story house with a brother and dog in the suburbs.
She has an intense interest in the paranormal and mythology so she is like a walking encyclopedia on those subjects. When she finds something new she obsesses over it until she finds out everything she can about it.
She hasn't been under pressure to many times but when she has, she handles it with a calm alarm. After the threat is gone though, she freaks out.

Item: Flashlight, with fresh triple D batteries in it.

I'll give it a go.

Name: Gavin Baker

Basic info: 19, messy blond hair, brown eyes. 5'10" and 140lbs, with long limbs. Quiet and withdrawn, but quick to offer help to others. Usually wears hand-me-downs, mostly browns and greens, as well as a threadbare tan scarf.

Background: American, raised by a single mother with an older brother in a working class neighborhood. He's interested in philosophy and enjoys observing how others act. He handles pressure well, but is often slow to react, hesitant to face the results of his actions.

Item: pill bottle with seven capsules left
Other: allergic to bees

Oooh, I'm in.

Name: Victoria Arcene Bellar

Basic info: 17, long, auburn hair with olive green eyes. 5'8'' and a bit underweight for her age and height, but barely enough to be noticeable. Quietly witty and very instinctual, Victoria has a primal instinct about her and does not have very much difficulty deciding right from wrong. She doesn't speak much at all, and her sense of humor likes to hide beneath the shroud of near silence, but when Victoria speaks it is with wisdom and careful consideration. She doesn't trust people easy, but when she considers someone as a friend she will throw herself under a train for them. Also has a nasty streak about her; when scared or enraged she will become frighteningly aggressive. Normally wears a dark v-neck graphic tee and long boot-cut jeans accompanied by purple and white Ed Hardy high-tops. Hair is often loosely tied in a ponytail, bangs still present from the right side of her face across her left eye. Often wears wraparound sunglasses.

Background: Victoria was a villager from villagers; with proud Greek parents she grew up in Athens for the young part of her life before moving to America. Personally, she prefers Greece much more. Raised in a bungalow with many furnishings, Victoria has very few wants and very few needs; her parents worked their hardest, but even still the family never had much. Having been bullied at school and a hard time making friends, Victoria retreated into the arts, namingly painting and photography. For her 7th birthday, her parents saved up their money and bought her a camera after they noticed their daughter going around with her fingers in a rectangle, pretending to capture the world within them. Since then, Victoria has had a quiet life, graduating from high school and then heading off to university, camera in one hand and heart in the other. Victoria loves to daydream, and whenever she is inspired she draws about it or writes stories. She doesn't approve of believing in ghosts, or anything paranormal for that matter, and tries to find a logical explanation to prove the theories wrong. She prefers to be alone, but will gladly accept company in dangerous situations. Under pressure, Victoria will freeze like a deer in headlights most of the time, unless of course she's the one who discovers the threat. Directly after dangerous encounters, depending on the trauma, she will often be in a calm haze-like state, in which she is analyzing what just happened. If she is the one who alerts others to danger, she feels a certain responsibility about her and will make sure that everyone gets to safety before she does, formulating plans and routes to get the group out of the situation as quickly and as safely as possible.

Item: Sony Handheld 'Bloggie' digital camera, one quarter of the battery used

Name: David Kenning

Basic info: 22, carries himself with an air of false superiority. Dresses sharply casual, has light blue misty eyes. Very light skinned, with flaming red hair, and no freckles.

Background: He is a CE (Computer Engineering) student at Berkley, barely scraping bye. The rigorous curriculum keeps him in constant agitation and stress. He has no real friends, and has only made acquaintances with a programmer named Rafael. David's parents are divorced and his father is currently living in Germany with his company, and is estranged. He maintains minimal contact with his mother who lives in Chicago and works at a waitress at a small cafe. He is involved with a small group of Computer students, most of whom he views as morons, and he has absolutely no room for human relationships

Item: The 1 TB external hard drive he keeps in his pocket always. He keeps everything in this drive, and leaves nothing on his personal computers that isn't 100% necessary. It has a great volume of information mostly pertaining to His school career and personal interests, which all involve computers.

I'm importing/slightly updating my character from the aborted Landsman Hospital RP since he never got used, and I liked him. XD



Name: Leslie Villamizar

Basic info: Male, mid 20's, 5'10/177cm height, very average weight.
The product of a unique multiracial blend, Leslie has an average complexion that would easily lend itself to tan if he went outdoors more often. He has dark, sharp features, and wavy brown hair that isn't particularly neat, but never falls into his eyes and face. Generally has a fixated gaze at whatever is at hand, and therefore, rarely makes eye contact, but not due to shyness.

Background: His parents were Cuban immigrants and had everything from Asian, South American Native, and Haitian genetics between them. He was raised in a somewhat lower class home in the United States with a sibling who doesn't talk to him much anymore. With his long nimble fingers and dexterity, he sometimes makes a living by stealing whatever he can get his hands on, but his real passion is Illusions and Sleight of Hand tricks.
Leslie has a tendency to automatically run and flee from trouble when the option is available. When he is assuredly TRAPPED in a situation, however, he can become a little more analytical, albeit more likely to swear. His personality tends to err on the side of paranoia, but it manifests in preparing for things that may happen ahead of time.

Item: A small pouch clipped to his belt contains 5 full, injectable rounds of insulin, and 2 empty syringes with needles intact.

Other: Leslie is ambidextrous (meaning equally skilled at using his right and left hand) but tends to pretend he's right handed around other people. He is also Diabetic (In this case, as long as he eats frequently, his glucose levels are stable, if not, he needs insulin or he may collapse.)

Oh, I've really wanted to get in on the roleplaying on this forum!

Name: Rosalie Hiedler Schmidt
Basic info: An aryan disappointment, Rosalie has blond hair, blue eyes, and a stocky, petite frame. She stands at 4' 11" , weighs 120 lbs and has no large personality to make up for her small size. She is generally timid, dislikes new things and loud noises, and spends a lot of her time writing small, macabre stories.
Background: Rosalie was born under two neo-Nazi parents who received their political and social views from grandparents who had been budding stars in the Hitler Youth and later migrated to America to escape the sinking German country. (Hiedler, her middle name, was the original form of the surname Hitler) Rosalie grew up embarrassed of her radical, offensive parents and disappointed them to no end. She had little interest in the stories of her Grandparents and the ideals of the underground neo-Nazi party budding in Southern California. She is currently a secretary for a small, single person law practice and studies creative writing at a small state college.

When under pressure, Rosalie can stay relatively calm, unless she feels physically in danger or personally attacked by someone she trusts. During those moments she becomes very quiet and can act erratic and violent.
Item: A small notebook filled with scribbles of characters and outlines, complete with a pen that can write in zero gravity.

Other: Leslie has an untreated borderline personality disorder, she often splits people into two camps: those whom she loves, and those whom she hates. These camps change quiet frequently and are rarely revealed because of her social anxiety.

Has an interest in Criminology and is fascinated by serial killers. Is a total skeptic and does not believe in the paranormal. Usually wears torn up skinny jeans and band shirts, with plain black and white high tops.

Background: A piercer at a tattoo shop. Growing up, she and her younger brother Eddie lived with their parents in a small house in Indiana. Her father was an alcoholic and fought with her mother constantly. Eddie ran away at 15 and hasn't been heard from since. When she was 17 her father and mother died in a car crash, her father had been drunk at the wheel. She was sent to live with her strict grandparents in Seattle. She didn't get along with them, and struck out on her own at 19. She is friends with a few people at the shop but not very close. In tough situations, she generally gets angry and curses a lot, but can usually fight her way through it.

Item: A Bic lighter, 3/4ths full.

I fear by the time i post this the slot will be taken but here goes (I rushed this so the slot wouldn't be taken while i was writing this...)

Name: Jacob Beenoors

Basic info: Jacob Beenoors is thirteen years old and has a black mohawk, his eyes are blue with dark circles under his eyes. He usually wears a leather jacket- not matter what time of the year it is. He is only 5"3 and weighs about 98 pounds. He barely eats and he loves horror movies. He doesn't talk much but he is very open to his friends and trusts people. He is a kind person despite his dark looks.

Background: He doesn't have much of a story, all he knows is that he grew up by himself in this world. He had no parents to begin with- he has no idea where he came from. He lives with his older sister who also doesn't know where she came from either. He grew up as a sad child, missing out on most things a child would enjoy. He mainly grew up watching horror movies and quickly became obsessed with the dark things in life. He loves animals and is very passionate. He had always loved drawing and writing.

Item:
Pocket knife

Other: Aspergers Syndrome

I must unfortunately decline this character submission. You are eligible to create a different character or modify this one and reapply. If you would like to know why it was declined, send me a PM and I will reply post haste. You will also have a 24 hour period that starts after this post to send me a character that is acceptable for this game. In that period, your character would be the only one I accept. After that period is over, if someone sends me an acceptable character before you do, I will have them take the available slot.

Hm, it does need more detail, like his personality, height, interests, etc. Until then, I can't really accept this character, either. What you have so far is good, but needs more.

Name: Alice McLeod

Basic info: Age eighteen, of lean, sutrdy build and average weight and a few inches below average height. She has messy light brown hair cropped short and dull green-gray eyes. Alice is most accustomed to a loose T-shirt (of varying color), jeans and a pair of well worn sneakers. She has a tendency to snark at others and seems to be content to work on her own though she can and will work as a group if needed. However, if she must work in a group Alice seems uncomfortable to be around others.

Background: Her parents were of English (her mother) and Scottish (her father) descent; though both parents were born in America, and so was she. She got through school with average grades, and was in the middle of applying for college; she works in a small coffee shop though she has no taste for that sort of caffinated drink. Alice is often listening to music and likes to draw (though she is quite far from being the best), often carrying around a mechanical pencil and small sketch pad. She loves to study history; especially Eurpean History and is hoping to teach said subject in the future.

Item: iPod Nano, third generation, earbuds are plugged in and wrapped around the ipod to prevent tangling; battery is 1/5 empty.

Other: Fidgets often when doesn't have anything to keeps her hands occupied.

Questions:

Do our characters hear/are aware of ONLY what is posted specifically in response to our own actions? Cause for Queen Morgause's action, I saw that only Crusergirl was made aware of what I can only assume is the same sound.

Also, if more than one person is peering into/standing in the same hallway (for example) will you state so or imply they can see one another? Cause I'm unsure if you're talking about different hallways or the same one.

EDIT: This thread should probably be renamed to be the "Out of Character" thread.

Well, the first issue I am going to leave to common sense, really. If you all are, say, in the same room when someone says something, then you all can hear it (unless they whisper it to a specific character or something like that). If you think you'd be able to hear it in the given situation, then so can your character.

The second issue, yeah. If you can see them, I'll make it clear.

And yeah, I'll go ahead and change the name of the thread.

So......did this game die or something?
I know we're waiting for a response from some people still but my impatience is getting all flustered.
Just curious.

Please pardon my impatience. Smile
