OPEN SIGNUPS A Night in Terror Town, a horror rp

Discussion in 'GROUP RP PLOT INFO & SIGNUPS' started by Jeremi, Oct 7, 2017.

  1. Please see the group's General Chat / RP Discussion / Discord Server for OOC talk.
    You can check out the wiki for more info.

    A Night in Terror Town



    The rp will be starting October 15th. Sign-ups will continue past the game starting, but only for a little while.



    Premise


    You were hoping this be a just like any other normal day.

    You were wrong.

    You find yourself waking up on a chair inside a derelict bus station. Quickly you find that you aren’t alone inside as more people are seemingly having the same experience as you. Gathering your thoughts, you make your way out of the station. The town outside does not look any better than the bus station interior.

    It seems like the entire town is deserted leaving you stranded in a ghost town. The only thing you hear is the crows screams through the broken glass ceiling. Anyone with powers trying to use them find them to be greatly diminished which is peculiar by itself.

    On top of that for some reason you can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching you. Soon enough you realize that you have been dragged into a game of survival as horrifying monsters and death traps try to kill you at any chance they can. Even seeking sanctuary inside the buildings might not be enough to save you from the entity stalking you. How did you get here and how are you going to escape this living nightmare?


    Character requirements

    Your character needs to be horror or supernatural themed, but I will be rather flexible when it comes to what is considered supernatural. For example things like Gravity Falls, the Adams Family or Mortal Kombat would be perfectly viable and anything in-between.

    Even characters that aren't from conventional horror or supernatural series like say Vamp from Metal Gear Solid or Sabrina from Pokemon work. If you're unsure where your choice stands just ask here and we'll work something out! As long as they live up to the spirit of Halloween then it should be good!

    Duos are not allowed.

    Mechanics

    The threat of death exists by many hazards. Living or otherwise. The players will have to think up the best way to get out of trouble lest their lives will be forfeit.​

    Rules (courtesy of @Verite and @Atomyk with some modifications)

    1. Naturally, all of Iwaku's rules apply here.

    2. Please be respectful towards everyone. As the GM my word is law, but I imagine there wont be a lot of problems.

    3. If you're a newcomer, welcome! Though the Murder Series is a mass fandom roleplay with its own original lore that's been built up and up for a while, don't let all that intimidate you, you don't need any past knowledge of the Murder Series to enjoy it! That being said, as a fairly tight-knit community, we suggest and encourage you to join our Murder Group to keep up with updates and meet the community. Also see our Discord server!

    4. No OOC talk in the IC, please. Take it to the group or Discord. By extension, OOC drama isn't permitted anywhere either. If you have a problem with someone, take it to PMs and settle it in a civil manner.

    5. This should be a given, but no godmodding / metagaming! If you don't have a clear idea on what those are, see this post here.

    6. Players of all posting levels are welcome here. That being said, please at least put something whenever you make a post. We'd like as little IC posts being nothing but image spam or so as possible. Speaking of image spam, please only post a maximum of three images / GIFs per post in order to not flood the page with images that make it harder to load.

    7. Due to the intended speed of the game, it is practically a requirement to seek out other users to be your "posting partners" so that you have some people you can stick with. Using the tagging system is absolutely required. This is actually very important. It's fine (and encouraged) to only keep up with a few characters / players for the majority of the game, as that is far easier than trying to keep tabs on everyone. Summaries and important GM posts will be made prominent.

    8. Please post once a chapter. Chapters will generally last from a few days up to a week, so you'll hopefully have time. Not doing so will result in your character possibly being removed from the game. At the very least, PM me if anything comes up and I'll do my best to keep you around.


    Template


    Appearance: Self-explanatory. Just a picture is fine.

    Name: What is your character's name? Do they generally go by an alias / nickname?

    Age: Chronologically, how old is your character?

    Canon: What does your character originate from?

    Powers / Abilities / Equipment: What is your character capable of, and if they have notable items they carry around, like weapons, is there anything special about them? While I'll be lenient with what to nerf and what not to, naturally, you know the drill. In any case, even just a Wiki link is fine.

    Short Bio: What is your character's backstory in a nutshell leading up to how they came to come here? Once again, pretty much just a Wiki link is acceptable.

    Other Info: Optional. Just basically any extra info you feel is necessary that I as the GM should know about.

  8. Appearance
    :
    [​IMG]

    Name: Bray Wyatt

    Age: 30

    Canon: WWE kafabe


    Powers / Abilities / Equipment: Brays powers and abilities are hard to quantify. He has some sort of mystical abilities from teleportation to know a person's history, from summoning other strange feats. His full powers are not known. He is alsoa skill wrestler.

    Short Bio: Bray's history is not well known. He said he was born in Laffite Louisiana, where his father was a shrimp boat captian. His father apparently abused Bray and his father died in a boat fire, and he "went away" from awhile. All of that points to Bray setting the fire that killed his dad.

    Bray taught himself to read, and latter a woman only know as Sister Abagail save him and other children, tasking them to a capain in the woods. Apperently, Bray was instilled the fact by Abagail that he was meant for great things. He was "a leader of men" and "chosen before he was born." he truly loved Abigail, even if sometimes her love was tough love. Apparently he was there when she died.

    Brays goals are not clear, and neither his moral code. Sometime he claims "the devil and god are a lie" and yet he calls himself a "god." He claims he has "followers", which he does, but then claims "he only has brothers and sister in the name of cause. To quote him "His ends justifies his means."

  9. Appearance: [​IMG]
    Name: William 'Penny' Adiyoi
    Age: Early 20s
    Canon: The Magicians
    Powers / Abilities / Equipment: Spell Casting - The ability to use magic and cast spells through complex somatic movements.
    Personal Abilities Discipline - Traveler Teleport Can move objects mentally with generally little to no movement. (This is significant because nearly all spells, including those involving moving objects require some sort of hand-movement. However it is not known if this ability can be associated with his discipline as a Traveler or if it is a self taught one.) Psychic- Can hear into the thoughts of others
    Multilingual- Penny knows multiple languages
    Short Bio: Penny.
    Penny also appeared in Murder game 0:Genesis in which he played a minor role helping the survivors and befriending Lucifer Morningstar before returning home.
    Other Info: Gives no Fucks about things. Hates Taylor Swift.(edited)

  10. You've been walking 'round in cycles
    And you've had your ups and downs
    When you passed out, we made contact
    Extremely deep underground


    [​IMG]

    Name:
    Sammy Lawrence
    "The Prophet"

    Age:
    ???
    Nebulous and vague at best, it seems he's stuck in his thirties or so.

    Canon:
    Bendy and the Ink Machine

    Powers / Abilities / Equipment:
    - There's not a lot to defend yourself with in a rotting cartoon studio; however, Sammy's taken up an axe. Recently that's been used for knocking out hapless victims to become a part of his strange and bizarre 'rituals' for his 'lord', but an axe is an axe is an axe, so don't doubt it's chopping power.

    - We're not so sure how, but Sammy's bodily composition is...Basically entirely ink. That might come in handy if something tries to bite him (ink poisoning can be very dangerous you know)...Or if someone just happens to need something to write with.

    Short Bio:
    Sammy Lawrence was formerly the music director for Joey Drew's animation company. He wrote a bunch of songs he...Largely considered kind of stupid, got very annoyed with his boss's bizarre business practices (who puts an important drain pump in his office which he wanted to be very quiet!?), and eventually developed a sanctuary that makes use of a sound-based lock. The details of how he went from a decent person to...This man made of ink is rather unclear, though it's certainly a thing that happened. What was once a grumpy music man is now a strange and bizarre cultist, making his rounds in a nearly-empty studio and performing rituals so his 'savior'--A children's cartoon character, Bendy the Dancing Demon--Will notice him and set him free (perhaps from his prison of a body or perhaps from the mortal coil, that's never really clear with him).

    He enjoys the banjo, chocolate cake, and the song 'Willow Weep for Me'. Also, don't expect his memory of his former self to be...Exactly stellar.

    Other Info:
    - I'll be writing him pre-the events of chapter two, if anybody's a stickler for accuracy (like me)

    - His personality is probably going to be a bunch of personal speculation and headcanons if I'm being honest with myself, but like I said, stickler for accuracy, keepin' as close to the game (and twitter Q & A) as possible

    I've been drawing seven circles
    And that's where he can be found
    'Cause these creatures need their sheep
    So he can free us from these bounds


    Whoa, I'm alive? Yeah, I'll try to keep up with this one and not die, I promise! You're all lucky my Sammy muse has been so high

  11. fx_portrait_rottytops_1.png

    "No, this isn't my costume. Why would a zombie want to dress up as a zombie?"

    Name: Rottytops

    Age: 16 (speculative, as it's never determined, in addition to her being undead)

    Canon:

    [​IMG]

    Powers/Abilities/Equipment:

    Sanity: Unlike most zombies, Rottytops still holds onto thought higher than a boundless lust for brains (although she still has her cheat days) She owes this to the wonderful substance known as coffee.

    Olympic Runner: Whether she was on the high school track team before undeath, or developed the skill after undeath, Rottytops possesses impressive speed and endurance on foot.

    Detachable Limbs: Rottytops can freely detach and reattach any of her arms and legs, assuming she has the proper amount hands to do so, hers or otherwise.

    Other Info:

    "This is my costume! Awesome right?"

    What's Halloween without a little dress-up? For the RP, this is how Rottytops will appear, unless stated otherwise later on.

  12. Kel'thuzad

    [​IMG]

    "Now...Bow before Kel'thuzad!"

    Age: Well he is an Undead so...

    Canon:

    [​IMG]

    Powers / Abilities / Equipment:

    Since Kel'Thuzad is a Lich, he has access to some strong spells, this includes:

    (Most of his magic will be taken from Warcraft 3 and Heroes of the Storm)

    Frost Nova: Summons a icy wave than can temporary freeze an enemy.

    Frost Armor: Envelopes himself in a icy barrier that shields some damage and can slow enemies if touched.

    Chains of Kel'Thuzad: Can use his chains to trap an enemy, and then send that chain towards any object, may it be a organic or a structure. Lasts for a few seconds.

    Frost Blast: Kel'Thuzad summons a giant meteor of ice and throws it at the enemy, dealing huge damage should it connect.

    Kel'Thuzad only has a certain amount of mana he can use before he has to recover. So he needs to carefully reserve his spells for important matters.

    Kel'Thuzad is somewhat immortal, as he cannot die though natural cause thanks to being an undead, he must be slain in battle in order to truly die.

    Short Bio:

    Possible spoilers from the Warcraft series inbound,

    In a nutshell...

    Show Spoiler
    Got into some freaky stuff, plagued a bunch of villages, was killed by a whiny guy, was resurrected by an undead whiny guy, summoned a giant blue smurf to bring havoc, did more freaky stuff, was given a sweet new suite by the Lich King and was later killed from random punks in his suite alongside his roommates.

    If you wish to read the full, unabridged story of Kel'Thuzad, click this link: Kel'Thuzad


    Other Info: This is technically my first time here and I wanted to see what the hype was for these kinds of RP.

    (Also GM, if you want me to edit or discuss things in the post, such as making the short bio unabridged from the getgo or discuss how my character wil work in this RP, let me know. I'm up for changes.)​

    [​IMG]

    Name: Yuri

    Age: I'd say, about, 18

    Canon:

    [​IMG]

    Powers / Abilities / Equipment: Yuri is just a standard high school girl with no special abilities. She DOES, however, carry an antique knife from her collection, her poetry notebook, and a horror novel.

    Short Bio: Yuri is your average quiet Highschool girl. She has an interest in horror stories and writing deep poetry. She joined the literature club at her highschool and soon fell in love with... The only boy there.

    Other Info: I won't really try to spoil anything as it's an experience one needs to have for themselves. But yes, it is a horror game. And tbh, IDK if I'll actually play her. We'll see first post, I guess.
