    @Harlequinn and I are starting an RP for Halloween! (A little late, but who cares!?) It is simple, with a few rules but mostly free will.


    Vote for the 2 premises you like best, and submit your character sheets!


    Abandoned Space Station –

    You are part of a retrieval team sent to a large space station (big enough to comfortably house 200 people. Includes living quarters, an academy, a large number of labs, including a large botany lab, and an indoor pool) After radio silence for 5 years, the team receives a tracking signal, and are sent in to refuel the station and send it home. Suspected cause of silence: hull breach.



    Zombie Outbreak – Hospital –

    You are in the hospital when emergency services put the whole place into lockdown. The dead are walking the streets and ripping people apart. The Hospital seems safe for all Hospital staff, visitors and patients... for now. (Note: if your character is bitten, you begin to RP as a zombie)



    Haunted Mansion/Island/Asylum –

    Standard ghost story. If chosen, will also vote on the location and how we all came to be there.



    Croatoa – small mountain town –


    You live in a small town set in the mountains. There are only approx 80 people living in the town. Everyone in the town vanishes suddenly without a trace except for the small group you find yourself with. Can you discover what happened, or will you go missing too?



    Remote Arctic Research Outpost -


    In a small research facility in the middle of the Arctic, one of your team members turns up horribly murdered. Comms are down, there is no way to call or go for help. Is there a killer amongst you, or something far more sinister?



    Rules:


    - No double posting

    - 500 worlds per post (this avoids people needing to catch up reading multiple huge posts)

    - Everyone can post at their own speed – no pushing others to post. If you don’t want to wait for others, you can progress on a story line of your own.

    - Everyone can have up to 2 characters. It would be great if we “lost” a few characters along the way, and people will be more willing to part with a character if they have a back up.

    - You character bio will not be a part of your character sheet. If you want people to know anything about your character, it has to be incorporated into the story.

    - Each character must have at least one deep seeded fear. If your character is confronted with that fear, they must respond appropriately

    - To avoid any over powered characters, all characters are human. Your skills and speed/strength/brains are the only thing your character excels at. That doesn’t mean they have to be terrible at the other things, but if you chose brains and find a door that needs to be kicked in, you either enlist help or use that noggin!

    - No supernatural powers. If there is a twist to your character that you want, contact either myself or @Harlequinn for approval

    - Either myself or @Harlequinn will be controlling the antagonist. That’s not to say you couldn’t meet with, say, zombies, in your own posts. But if we want to throw zombies at you at an inconvenient time, we will!



    Character sheet:


    Name:

    Age:

    Appearance: (picture if possible please)

    Skill: (one per character):

    Fears: (at least one per character):

    Posessions: (up to 5 small items in their pockets, though have to be things you realistically could have been carrying with you before knowing what was going to happen. No guns. Each scenario will have a number of items that each player will own)

    Strength: Dexterity/Intelligence/Physical (if want to choose something else, just float the idea first)

    As for the speed/strength/brains things, don't worry too much about it, as there are no hard stats.

    It's basically just there to avoid characters that are too well rounded, and to give others an idea of which kinds of actions are believable for your characters, and which are not.

    Yep! You can do it at anytime, or edit it based on which scenario we go with :)

    This thread will be communication for anything to do with the RP, and we will start an IC when it starts for story posts only :)

    Yeah absolutely lol the rpers on this site have had a habit if writing incredibly lol posts lol 500 is a reasonable amount for peopke to read, but you don't have to make it that long either. Looking forward to your character sheet!

    Still have a few days on the poll so no rush :)

    Pfft. If I join I’m making a silent protagonist who only responds with “.......” to everything. Best character ever.
