"Waking up in a log cabin isn't normal, is it?" Thirteen people wake up in an unfamiliar log cabin. They don't know each other, they don't know where they are, they don't have any device to connect with the outside world except for a old flip phone that barely works, and they don't know why they're here. They all have dates and times tattooed on their wrists, and a slip of paper in their pocket that has a predetermined role scribbled on it. When they open the door, they find themselves in a carnival in the middle of a forest. They need to find out why they're here, who got them there, how to work with the strangers they're surrounded by, and how to get out before the deadline written on their wrists. Dead End Carnival is a Horror/Mystery/Teamwork roleplay that takes place during modern times. The characters have two weeks (RP time) to figure things out and get out of there before people start disappearing. --- OOC: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/dead-end-carnival-ooc.76934/ IC: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/dead-end-carnival-in-character.80603/ Interest Check: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/dead-end-carnival-interest-check.76295/#post-1594705 --- Alright! So this is where you reserve roles and put your character sheets! The roles and character sheet are below! Also, this roleplay has thirteen people, no more, no less. If we don't have enough people by the time October ends, I'll allow you guys to have more than one character each. Please use anime pictures! Roles (Yes, there's a carnival theme, and yes, a lot of them are messed up emotionally.) The Ringmaster - Taken - StarryNIGHT - Kenshin Yashiro The ringmaster is the leader of the group, for the most part. They are one of the only three people who can use the barely working flip phone and get certain information (like where to find food and the bathrooms, for example) from the "crazy mastermind", as the group has dubbed it, that got them there. He or she should be relatively good at leading and getting along with people, otherwise, things will be bad from the get-go. The Star of the Show - Taken - Haruka - Juliet Blake The star of the show is used to the royalty treatment where they come from. They don't want to get their hands dirty, and they expect everyone to bow down to them, not that it's going to happen much. They actually understand most of the group's feelings better than everyone else because of their odd personal experiences. The Strong One - Taken - Salsacookies - Ronald Bones The strong one is the one person who can break through any door or obstacle in their way. They are physically and mentally tough, and are always supporting others throughout the roleplay. Most characters see them as a bit of a role model, and at least slightly brash and headstrong. They sometimes get into fights with the others, but they usually don't last too long. The Tightrope Walker - Reserved - Incandescent - None Careful and cautious is the best way to describe this character. They always analyze everything that comes at them, and are less willing to take risks compared to the trapezist, and contortionist. Sometimes, they appear cold, aloof, and uncaring, but they actually care about everyone, and don't want them to take fatal risks. The Clown - Taken - Elemental*Stars - October Ó Rinn Affable, loud, and always joking around, the clown is one of the nicest people in the group. They're probably the only reason why everyone isn't miserable or trying to kill each other. Even though they talk with everyone, exposing their true self, they aren't friends with anyone in the group. They just know people on a surface level. The Fortune Teller - Taken - Elemental*Stars - Primavera Escarrá The fourtune teller isn't ever afraid to speak their mind, even when people will dismiss everything they say. They try to get along with everybody, but they're especially close to the magician and the assistant. They put on a fancy act for everyone, but behind it is a kind person who wants everyone to be happy. They're one of the three people who can use the phone, and are able to know how each person in the group will disappear. The Contortionist - Open - None - None The contortionist is an attention seeking risk taker. They love to try new things, and desperately want to be like the star of the show, and to be loved. They'll rush ahead in a dangerous situation, and will sacrifice themselves just to be remembered. The Ticketmaster - Taken - DapperDogman - Blane Frost The ticketmaster prefers to stay way out of the spotlight, and keep things running smoothly. They smile and pretend to be a nice person, but they're very jealous of everyone's happiness. They're one of the people who can use the phone, and can see a brief history of the people in the group. The Trapezist - Taken - memento mori - Iris Cavendish The trapezist is a risk taker like the contortionist, but they tend to do it for the fun of it all. They leave everyone else in the dust, and prefer to be either alone or with the contortionist. They're very blunt and straightforward, and have a tendency of getting everyone mad at them. The Animal Tamer - Taken - Raven - Skyla Welby The animal tamer doesn't mind being left out. They've been left out all of their life, after all, so what's one more abandonment to them? They make friends with the oddest people, and often animals and inanimate objects. They have a tendency not to trust people easily, so they aren't ever in the center of attention. The Sideshow - Taken - AllisonHushx - Cara-Lee Simpson The sideshow is a complete oddball. Most people think that either they have a few limbs missing, seem to have a few brain cells missing, or both. They're full of off the wall ideas, but they rarely talk about them because they know that the group will reject them. Also, it's probably a bad idea to call them "sideshow" to their face. The Magician - Taken - memento mori - Kieran Spencer The magician is an expert liar, good at pretending that they're not hiding anything, that they're the opposite of what they are. He/she is very affable, and is "friends" with everybody. They have the exact opposite problem of the clown: they know a lot about others, because people trust them, but nobody knows anything about them. The Assistant - Taken - MiraiNikki021209 - Evanangeline "Eva" Winters The assistant is one of the youngest members of the group, and is very reliable and trustworthy, but often ignored. They are always trying to find a way to help, but sometimes, they get in everybody's way instead. The assistant smiles often, but sometimes hides depressed, lonely, and even angry feelings behind that smile that they're so proud of.
