IC Thread ~ Coming Soon!! You sighed, settling down onto your bed. For some reason today just didn't seem like a good day. Glancing up, you took notice of the small, porcelain doll that sat upon your dresser. You didn't know why you bought it. Something about the little girl was just.... different. You looked closer at the doll, studying it almost. It had long, brownish red hair and wore a black gown. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary about it, but for some reason you found it odd. Suddenly as you looked on, her porcelain lips curved upwards in a smile. Now you knew you were imagining things. Dolls didn't smile. You knew that much. Climbing out of your bed, you wandered closer to the dresser. It was almost as if the small doll was beckoning you forward. You came to a halt in front of the wooden structure, staring skeptically at the non-living girl. The world around you began to fade to black as you continued to look on. The doll raised her hand in greeting and smiled at you again. That was the last thing you remembered. ~~~~~~~~~~ Cracking your eyes open, you glanced around only to note that you weren't in your room anymore. There were other people scattered about you on the ground. They looked like they were just waking up as well. You climbed to your feet. You noticed that you were in what appeared to be a forest. Around you the other people began to rise, asking questions about where they were or how they came to be there. You were about ready to begin inquiring as well when a clear yet quiet voice washed over you. "You are in the Dreamland.." It stated calmly. Whipping your head around to the source of the sound, you seen the porcelain doll, only she was now your size. She looked at you sadly, almost as if she were regretting what was soon to happen. "But why are we here..?" One of the other people asked. "..and more importantly how did we get here..?" The doll sadly shook her head. "He has brought you here.." She said softly, looking at the person. Another question was asked about who he was. "He is the Puppet Master Ace..." She intoned, looking between all of the people that were gathered around. "He brought you here to..." She trailed off, looking at her own hand. "..to make you into his puppets. He believes you to possess qualities that he wishes to acquire." Another person stepped forward. "Then why didn't he just make us into puppets? Why dump us in the woods where we have a chance to escape?" They inquired, a fierce look on their face. They looked as if they were ready to attack the poor doll. You didn't know why, but you believed that she didn't like this 'Puppet Master' very much. "He enjoys his games..." She said, giving us a sad smile. "He is giving you the chance to escape, but it is useless..." She said, trailing off again. "He always wins..." With that she disappears in a swirl of leaves, almost as if she were summoned away. As everyone began to mill about wondering what to do, a voice ran out from the clouds. "Let the game begin, pets..." ~~~~ Character Sheets Name- Gender- Age- Ability- (This ability is currently unknown by by its wielder. This is why they were chosen) Personality- Appearance- Mine Name- Ace Dominus Gender- Male Age- Unknown Ability- Creates puppets out of humans. Can almost completely control them.

He is sadistic and will find almost anyway he can to torture his prey into submission. He immensely enjoys breaking the spirits of those who he goes up against.

She longs to help people, and yet she is forced into the servitude of the Puppet Master. She tries to see the good in everyone, and this was her downfall. She stumbled across Ace when she was younger and thought of him as a lost soul. She tried to befriend him and in return he pulled her into his dream world. Alaina was his first puppet, yet she is also his favorite. He often uses her for missions and such even though she isn't that strong. She wants nothing more than to be free of his control. However, no one that has been pulled into his dreamland has been able to save her or the other puppets yet. Name- Dakota Rayne Hirana Gender- Female Age- 18 Ability- Control over fire.

She does have a soft side though, but it takes special people to get it out of her.

Obvious. No god-modding. 2. Respect the other people. If your character wants to bitch slap another character and cuss them out, go right ahead. If you want to bitch slap another person and cuss them out, take it out of the thread and preferably to a moderator. I'm not going to handle your petty arguments. At least not nicely. 3. Damn, shit, ass, etc... If you don't like it, don't continue because there is going to be much more of it in the future. 4. Literacy. Learn the word. Love it. Because I do. I'm not going to go all grammar Nazi on you, just please... please... respect the English language... After all. Good grammar is the difference between helping you Uncle Jack off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse. I will behave. Until i 2ee 2hiit liike thii2. OR SHIT LIKE THIS. I do not want to feel like I am being screamed at through text. I, however, will not murder you for one or two misspellings. Everyone makes mistakes. I understand this. Just, like I said. Please don't abuse the English language. It is a beautiful thing. 5. One liners are the enemy. Can we have at least a paragraph? Is that too much to ask? If I see a single sentence post, I will go beyond flipping my shit. I understand writer's block is a common issue, just please don't drop below three sentences. 6. If you have read these rules in their complete glory, please put "Escape the Dreamland" in your character sheet. If I do not see this, you do not get accepted. Plain and simple. I will tell you that you can have a place once you've read the rules. 7. All characters must be approved by me before joining the role play. This is to prevent stupidity and, once more, to prevent shit flipping. 8. Only two characters per person. That's it. No more. We're not having the RP revolve all around one person and their gazillion characters. You are allowed either two captives or a captive and a puppet. 9. If you are gone for more than a week without giving me a valid reason before you disappear, you will be removed from the RP. We're not all waiting on one person, we want to keep moving. If you are going on vacation or something tell me before you leave. 10. @Petricus Euryale has the same power I do. Listen to him like you'd listen to me. He's my fiance and partner in crime. His words are law just like mine are.
