A WHIRLY WOLF CHRISTMAS
DECEMBER 22ND WEDNESDAY @ 12PM NOON TO 3PM CENTRAL TIME​

Merry Christmas from the Whirly Family in Montana!

The Whirlys are a family of werewolves living their best life in a small town out in Montana. They may not all be related by blood, but this pack deeply cares about their wolfish family and friends. Their yearly Christmas celebration is quite the sight to behold -- and you're invited! Just make sure to bring old Grandma Whirly a present or you'll be sure to suffer her wrath. And maybe don't partake of too much Holiday Punch unless you want to be feelin' real sick over the weekend. Maybe leave your "never knew werewolfs were real" friend at home, or they're going to be seein' a whole lot of fluff and naked butts wildin' around.

Hope to see you there!


EVENT INFO


WHO: Everyone is invited! Character Bios/Pics are not required, but totally encouraged! Post 'em if you got 'em.

WHAT: You are going to the Whirly family Christmas party! You can be a blood relative, married in, a close family friend, or even someone that ended up to this party by accident. Werewolves encouraged, but anything else welcome!

WHERE: Join us in the WHIRLYWOLF chat room. You'll find the link to our chats in the CHAT tab when it's time to play.

HOW: This is a SOCIAL SETTING WITH IMPROVISATIONAL GAME MASTERING. That means the object of this roleplay is to interact with other characters, and from those interactions I will create a plot and story around you. There will be fun silly moments, where strange events will happen and your characters will have to work together to resolve it. With this ChaRP "lol random" behaviors are discouraged -- what your character says and does will have in game consequences, so choose wisely!

My roleplays are always NEWBIE FRIENDLY so even if you are terrible at roleplay or have never participated in a ChaRP before, this will be easy for you to get involved in. :D Ask questions, let me know when you need help. I often give tips and direction out of character in the main chat room when people need a little direction.



EASY CHARP TIPS!


Try to show up a good 10 to 15 minutes before the ChaRP is to begin. That way you can read up on any important info, and it makes it easier for your GM to know how to start off the ChaRP when there's a head count.

Don't worry if another player is doing something similar to your idea. DO IT ANYWAY! Similarities and things in common happen in real life too. Everyone also plays differently, so two characters who are both "sweet and shy" will still end up being totally unique people. Two assassins could create a fun and interesting conflict!

Talking to other players about their character before the roleplay is a GREAT way to create connections and background for your own!

Post SHORT AND FAST. Charps are very quick pace and contain a LOT of players. Players can't wait 20 minutes for you to write a wall of text, and if there's too much text they won't be able to read it fast enough and will MISS details. If it takes you longer than two minutes to type your post, you are taking too long and might get lost in the action. This is an exercise in quick and concise writing!

Make sure your character name is mentioned in every post, close to the start of it if possible. This is especially helpful when there's many players, so we know who is playing what character.

Like in Real Life, a character may not be able to acknowledge or notice your character immediately because they are engaged in doing something else. (For example a new character walking in to the room, but the other characters arguing about muffins and do not see them.) Don't get discouraged if you go can't get someone to interact with you right away. Just keep posting and doing actions with your character, or even approach others who also seem to be idle and it WILL happen.

Do not take events in the roleplay personally or assume that bad reactions are because they think you/your character sucks. Everyone is playing a character and reacting to things as their character would!

1636757459579.jpeg Name: Darya Levrenteeva Orlova

Age: 16

Gender: Female


Eye Color: Gray (Wolf: Grey)

Height: 5' 4" (Werewolf: 8' 8")

Weight: 120 lbs. (Werewolf: 405 lbs)

Ethnicity: Caucasian (Russian)

Description: Darya is slender with toned musculature. She has wavy shoulder-length black hair, pale skin, and blue-gray eyes. She prefers Goth clothes and makeup.

Background: Darya's father Lavrentia Orlov was a rising star in the Communist Party in the Soviet Union, quickly rising to prominence in Gosplan, the Soviet economic planning ministry. When the Soviets collapsed, he readily switched to capitalism, becoming one of the leading "oligarchs" in the new post-Soviet financial industry. His "work" consisted of arranging for buyouts of formerly state-run industries and resources (mines, lumber, oil, etc.) for a fraction of their worth, and moving billions of rubles overseas for himself and other oligarchs. When Vladimir Putin came to power and started cracking down on the "oligarchs," he moved to Brussels and became even more prominent as an international financier.

Like her new "stepmother" who is only a few years older than she is, Darya was supposed to be a pretty ornament on her father's arm, the Perfect Daughter. To this end, he has provided her with a finishing-school education, dance classes and training in savoire faire. She's been trained in martial arts and combat marksmanship (pistol), so she could fend for herself if Russian mafia or some other enemies of his should get past his bodyguards and security systems. But Darya has always hated her father for the way he exploits people. An angry, rebellious girl, she eschewed the expensive Italian high-fashion clothes he bought for her, preferring aggressive punk and Goth clothes and jewelry. She was always getting into trouble, hanging with the wrong crowds...until things got even worse.

She went on a date with a rebel biker boy she was sure her father would hate (the primary source of his appeal), but when she nervously started to allow a makeout session, he bit her and seemed inclined to force himself on her. with a sudden burst of kung fu elbow strikes, punches, and kicks, she was able to break free and get to her street-racing bike, but she swore she could hear him howling after her...like a wolf.

Darya began having nightmares of running through forests on four feet, howling at the moon, the hunt, the feel of hot blood splashing down her throat. She grew more violent with time, and started developing odd quirks, like preferring to eat meat raw. One day, while her father had her on an extended business trip to Germany, she was found naked in a field next to a viciously-mauled cow. Her mouth was dripping with blood, and more was splattered over her body. She herself was not blamed for the cow's death, since it had clearly been killed by the slashing fangs of wolves, but the police decided she must have somehow found the kill after the wolves left.

Lavrentia decided that his clearly insane daughter was too much of a liability, so he committed her to a sanitarium in Romania, the kind of place where she could be put away forever and forgotten. Drugs, electroshock "therapy," and other more primitive and barbaric "treatments" failed to cure Darya of her "condition."

To the contrary, when the Moon waxed full, Dr. Tepescu and his orderlies found out the hard way that her "delusion" was a horrifying reality. One of the members of the Whirly pack, who closely followed anomalous reports of the werewolf variety in order to find and rescue newly-turned werewolves before their inexperience and lack of self-control could result in disaster came to her rescue, but not in time to save Dr. Tepescu and his orderlies from the consequences of picking the worst possible time to administer a cruel new "treatment" to Darya.

Despite her suspicions and inability to trust, Darya heeded the "how to be a werewolf in civilized company" lessons she received on her way to Montana in the USA, where she is about to make her debut in werewolf society at the Whirly Family Christmas Party...
