Quick note: This roleplay will probably only be for 18+ simply because I want it to try and explore darker themes. Sorry if this excludes you, but that's just how I wanted it. Rise oh moon for it is time for the wolf to howl. Time for the sky to be filled with his mournful song. The wolf is awake, roaming and longing for your light to show him the path. Rise oh moon, for the hunter is prowling. His moment of triumph is breaking with the glow of your waning light. Your ominous form fueling graceful strides. Rise oh moon, the wolf’s heart is beating, racing The hunt has begun and the ending is near. When the wolf howls….there is much to fear.~Infant Pheonix.Feel the thrill of the chase, the thrill of the hunt. The Dark Moon is Rising. A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope (from the Greek λυκάνθρωπος lykánthropos: λύκος, lykos, "wolf", and ἄνθρωπος, anthrōpos, "man"), is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or a therianthropic hybrid wolf-like creature, either purposely or after being placed under a curse or affliction (e.g. via a bite or scratch from another werewolf). For as long as man has roamed the earth there have been werewolves, and for a long time they were at war with one another. Man feared the dangerous werewolves, and the werewolves fought for their lives. They weren't the only creatures to go bump in the night, but still man would tell stories to their children of the big bad wolves who hunt innocents in the forests. As time passed the war drew to a stalemate and the werewolves hid their existence from the world. They became stories, myths and legends used to strike fear into hearts and provide entertainment. But to this day they exist in the shadows of the world, surviving the only way they can. Plot Overview Although this is open to suggestions and changes so hit me with ideas.... The general idea is that you are a member of a North American pack, blending in with your own human life. It can be whatever you choose, from being a member of a rock band to a school teacher, in whatever place you choose, provided it is in one of the 23 North American countries. But when a member of the pack dies, the Alpha calls everyone back to their territory to deal with the loss. Your character is expected to drop everything when the leader of your Pack calls, but how you react to it is up to you. But as the Pack begin to investigate what happened to your fallen friend, they discover that not everything is what it seems and a long forgotten enemy makes themselves known. An enemy whose hatred for the pack runs far deeper than any man could fathom. And in order to survive, you must band together with your brothers and sisters and fight to the death if necessary. Places would be limited to maybe 6 people with one character each, simply because I don't want to be overrun with a massive group but we could probably stretch it to include a couple more if necessary. The ratio of males to female characters should be 2:1, for no particular reason other than I think more men than women would make it have the 'darker' vibe I'm hoping for. (And no I'm not trying to be sexist). This roleplay should be focused more on protecting the secret of the Werewolves existence even if it means killing, torturing, etc. And when I previously tried to do this with a more female driven cast it turned out to be a big soppy romance-fest. And while there's nothing wrong with romance, and it is certainly welcome in this rp provided it sticks within the rp rules, it's not why I wanted to create it. I get it if that makes me sound like some kind of maniac, but I thought I'd give it a try for once! Interested? Lemme know below!
