What makes a RolePlay dark? Many people, myself included, will openly tell you that they like a dark, gritty story. But what exactly makes a story dark? The darkest story I've ever RPed was something that originally should've been something very lighthearted. A merperson was captured and put on display in a casino. The story itself was loosely based off a silly dream I'd had, but it quickly turned into a dramatic affair. Language barriers, a wide array miscommunication errors, stockholm syndrome, and mental illness quickly turned what could've very easily been a silly romantic comedy-esque story into something that I could only describe as very dark in nature. The story itself was silly and nonsensical. But the characters made it something different. But every RP is different. And it makes me curious. What were some of your darkest RPs? And what made them that way?
