    • Everyone had heard the rumors of the haunted mansion deep in the woods. People who ventured into the house rarely returned. It was only rumors of course. If it was true, why hadn't they just demolished the house? Of course it wasn't true and everyone knew it. So what can go wrong when 11 teens decides to have their test of courage in that mansion?

      Soon the teens finds themselves fighting for their lives as a seemingly invisible enemy is killing them one after one.


      • No Godmodding, otherwise the ghosts will eat your face!
      • The group can have max 15 members, which includes extra characters. These 15 members are all students at the same high school, which means everyone knows someone. Characters that are 17 years old or older can have a drivers license. Younger people needs to ask another teen or outsider for a ride.
      • Anyone can die. ANYONE.
      • Once your character is dead you can either leave the roleplay or come back as a ghost. The ghost can either try to warn or harm people.
      • Newly created ghosts does not have the same powers as old ghosts. They cannot touch things or be heard except if they become incredibly emotional. They cannot get the extreme power to kill people. They can try to use phones to be heard better, but the result might not always be what they've expected.
      • Only the GM can kill people, and the killings will happen randomly. Be prepared to die at any time.
      • Kissing is okay, but if your characters runs off to bang somewhere, I cannot guarantee your safety. (Going off to have a sweet love scene in a haunted mansion is considered a suicide mission. You might survive, but you're making it so much harder for yourself.)
      • Wanna quit the rp? Tell me, I'll kill off your character in a worthy manner.
      • Real life is real, but I will still ask you for at least one post a week.
      • If you haven't replied to the rp for weeks, and not given any explanation to why, your character will disappear in the maze of the mansion. You will still have a chance to come back for as long as your character is lost in the unknown, but at some point I will declare the character dead and its lifeless body will be found by the other characters. Tell me in the OOC when you're ready to post again if your character has been lost in the unknown, and I'll introduce it back to the main route. (They won't be unharmed)
      • No one liners. Each post should contain at least one paragraph with eight sentences minimum. There's no max roof, but if you decides to write a novella (10+ paragraphs), make sure to put a summary in a spoiler.
      • Once the rp starts, there will still be chances for people to join. A character can be lost in the forest, their car can have broken down, a student can be late, or a police might have seen all the cars and decided to check out on the people trespassing etc.
      • When we take in random travelers, it will be announced on the top of the page and you should use the unfortunate traveler character sheet when signing up. (Except if you play a late student, then you do the student sheet.)

      An old abandoned mansion is hidden deep in the forest. It is said that the building is like a labyrinth, once you’re in you won’t be able to find your way out. Some stories even suggest that there are ghosts in the mansion that keeps people lost, or even take the liberty to kill them. There is even a story about who the ghosts were in life and after death.

      A hundred years ago there was a man who loved his wife dearly. To show his affection he built her a mansion. His name was William Bennett, and her name was Elizabeth. After ten years of work the mansion was finally finished and they moved into it together. Shortly after moving in, the inseparable couple slowly seemed to be growing apart as Elizabeth spent less and less time with her husband. Obsession overtook her and she locked herself up with her paintings in the attic. As time went by, William started to hear rumors about Elizabeth having an affair with his best friend Eric. Blinded by jealousy and grief, William poisoned his wife and watched her die a slow painful death.

      Eric Thompson had fallen in love with Elizabeth the moment he saw her, but at that time she was already married with his best friend. He hoped that Elizabeth would leave William if he suddenly got aggressive and jealous. A rumor about Elizabeth being unfaithful would definitely give that effect, but it all went horribly wrong. Once the news of Elizabeth’s death had reached him, he knew exactly what William had done and he immediately hurried to the mansion.

      When he arrived at the mansion, Eric banged at the door until a servant opened it. Fear didn’t even have a chance to enter his mind before Eric shot the poor man in the head. Eric then moved forward and killed any servant who passed him while he searched the mansion for his old friend. One servant was able to run away after having been shot in the shoulder. He had the chance to flee the mansion, but he did not take it. Instead he ran towards his master’s working office to warn William of the oncoming danger.

      William refused to take his servant’s advice to run away while he still could. Instead he just sat there and waited for Eric to find him. The servant soon heard footsteps coming closer, and as he did not wish to get killed by a mad man, he chose to jump out of the window from the third floor. He did survive the fall, but with broken legs and no help for miles, he died of blood loss hours later.

      Entering the room, Eric directed his gun towards Williams head while asking, “how could you?” William just looked at him without giving any answer. A tear ran down Eric’s cheek as he pulled the trigger, killing the man who he once had considered a friend. A loud scream of anger and sorrow echoed through the mansion as Eric couldn’t hold back his emotions any longer. Some say that his heartbroken scream still can be heard in the forest surrounding the mansion.

      It took weeks before people started to notice the absence of mister Bennett and his wife in town, but eventually the police were sent to the mansion to investigate their disappearance. As they knocked on the door, no one opened, and when they walked inside no one was there, not even the corpses of the servants. Only the corpse of William and Eric could be found inside the mansion. Eric Thompson hanged himself in the attic, surrounded by his beloved Elizabeth’s paintings. Eric had written a last message, telling everyone what he had done, how he had massacred the servants, but not one word in the letter explained what he had done with their bodies. Only one servant was ever found, the one who jumped out from the window and had crawled into the forest in an attempt to escape.
      Now they are haunting the mansion.

      Elizabeth is said to haunt the attic where she can be surrounded by her beloved paintings. Some also says that she roams the corridors, searching for something or someone, but no one knows what or who, though certain rumors says that she once was pregnant, but misfortune hit and she had a miscarriage. After that she could never become pregnant again and she became heavily depressed. Her paintings were the only thing that could give her comfort. Might she be roaming the corridor in search of the child she never could give birth to?

      Eric’s ghost is sometimes seen hanging in the attic where he killed himself, but he’s more often said to be walking through the mansion in his endless search for William. It is said that if he sees a girl in the mansion he will take her away because he mistakes her for Elizabeth. The girl is never seen again. If he sees a man then he will assume that it is William and brutally murder him.

      William is mostly seen grieving in his working office, but at times one can also find him walking in the corridor. If he sees a man he will beg him to end his suffering, he will beg to be killed, but if he sees a woman, then he will most likely kill her as he will think that it is the wife whom betrayed him for another man.
      Even the servants are said to haunt the mansion. No one knows what they do or why they won’t move on to the other side, but rumors say that you should never follow a servant, because they will make you get lost in the labyrinth-like mansion.



      • Can we create a ghost character?
        - At this moment, no. Your character can turn into a ghost once s/he dies, but you cannot play a ghost that already exists in the house. Later on I might allow people to play servant ghosts or people who died in the house in between the massacre and the teens coming there, but they won't be able to kill anyone without permission from me.
      • Where does this take place?
        - In a fictional part of England named Hamel.
      • What's the school's name?
        -Haydon bridge high school. (Named after an old bridge with lots of (uninteresting) history that no teenager really cares about, but the towns proud history teacher keeps bringing up over and over again.)


    • Name:
      Age: (Between 16-19)
      Sex: (Biological sex (+ gender if their mental gender doesn't fit their biological sex.))

      Bio: (A short or long biography explaining your characters personality and history. If extremely long, make a small summary at the end)

No items can appear out of nowhere because it's convenient for your character. NO WEAPONS ALLOWED. Pocket knives is the only exception.)

      Fears and phobias: (Every character needs at least one big fear. Please be creative. It won't be fun with ten characters that has a phobia for spiders. They will play a big role in the rp.)

      Transport: (Did your character drive to the mansion, or did they join in someone else's car? Max five people per car, at least three drivers needed.)

A hand gun or a normal knife is okay as long as they have a good reason to carry them around.)

      Fears and phobias: (Every character needs at least one big fear. Please be creative. It won't be fun with ten characters that has a phobia for spiders. They will play a big role in the rp.)

      Reason: (Why did they walk into the mansion? Did their car break down and they were searching for shelter for the night? Were they out hiking when the weather suddenly took a turn for the worst and they happened to be close to the mansion? Did they just drive by, saw a lot of cars that shouldn't be there and got curious? Is your character part of the police and decides to arrest whoever is in the mansion since they're trespassing?)

  2. Name: Alice Hawk
    Age: 18
    Sex: Female
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    (Source)​

    Bio:
    Alice is a girl who prefers her own company. She enjoys making short films and documentaries during her spare time and hopes for it to become her job in the future. The interest for film making comes from her father who makes animal documentaries for a living. Sure he was rarely home while Alice grew up, but she still knew him through his work and he always inspired her to follow her dream.

    She is often seen with a video camera and records every thing that happens to pass by her lens. Most people gets annoyed with her constant filming, thus she doesn't have many friends, but she cherish the few she have, at least when she isn't absorbed in her own work. Being surrounded by people has never been her thing, a couple of close friends whom she speaks to a couple times a week is more than enough for her.

    Items brought along:
    • Bag
    • Small video camera
    • Pencil
    • Paper
    • Extra memory cards and batteries for the camera
    • A sandwich
    • A bottle of water
    • Cellphone

    Fears and phobias:
    • Human contact
      Alice has always had a problem with skin to skin contact, and not even her closest friends can touch her freely. This has of course made relationships almost impossible, thus she has avoided them.
    • Heights
      When she was younger, Alice fell from a tree when she tried to film an event from a birds perspective. After that she became terrified of heights.

    Transport: Drove her father's car. (four seats available)

    Name: Ellie Laynon
    Age: 18
    Sex: Female

    Bio: Ellie is a rather level headed girl, emotionally. She likes having fun with others but she also enjoys staying at home and being alone. She gets annoyed rather quickly when common sense is not used. Other then her phobia of Libraries and how easily it is for her to get annoyed over certain matters, she is very normal. She grew up, the oldest of four siblings, two brothers and a sister. After Ellie's traumatic incident, her family moved to a new city and the Laynon kids went to a new school, making new friends.

    As years passed, Ellie began to hear about the abandoned Mansion and how it was haunted and scary place; a common story among the elderly. Although Ellie had no interest in going to this mansion, her younger brother, the second oldest of the four, had signed up for their schools test of courage. A group of students from the high school she attended were going to the Mansion for that years test of courage and their parents asked her to drive him there, so Ellie had no choice but to sign up.

    Items brought along:
    Fears and phobias:
    • Libraries: In Ellie's old town, there was a closed down library that she liked to go play in when no one was around. It was an old place that was like another world to her and she would often times play there with her friends. One day she was there with her friends but there was an accident, an old book shelf, lined with old books, fell on her, pinning her and breaking her left leg. Instead of helping her, her friends ran off screaming and left her alone and crying until late into the night and early the next day, when police found her and she was brought to the hospital. Ever since she has been terrified of being in a Library.
    • Being Pinned
    • Being left alone

    Transport: She drove in her car. [Has room for three more people.]

  8. Name: Nathaniel Laynon
    Age: 17
    Gender: Male
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]

    Bio:
    Nathaniel is a very studious and quiet person. He doesn't actually care about his grades, he just finds random subjects interesting and a strong dislike for human interaction. He'll only speak when needed. He's also a bookworm, even when his sister's accident occured. But he does feel somewhat guilty for not understanding better, that's why he borrows books for her without complaints. He found out about the mansion through his friend and immediately jumped at the idea to go, especially because of his recent fascination with architecture and everlasting interest in history, completely disregarding the whole ghost story.

    Items brought along:
    • Backpack
    • Cellphone
    • Flashlight
    • Notebook
    • Pencils
    • Sandwich
    • Thermos (tea inside)

    Fears and phobias:
    • Being underground: He won't admit it but, this is one of the main reasons why he can' twitch documentaries with any hints of someone about to or is buried. He unconciously imagines what it feels like to be in their place and hates it with a passion. This fear even leads to him being unable to go anywhere below the ground floor of a house.

    - Mirrors: He knows the science about how it works and even knows what it's made of, the only thing that fears him of it is when it's in a dark place. He's not sure why, but it makes him uncomfortable.

    You were supposed to write down your characters sex, not sexuality ^^ So you should write if she's biologically female or male (which in this case would be female)

    Except for that the CS looks good and she's accepted :)

  16. Name: Olive Cavanaugh
    Age: 16
    Sex: Female
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    (Credit for art goes to prinnay)

    Bio: Olive was a foster youth for the first five years of her life before being adopted by a kind young couple, who happened to have three other adopted children. Her parents doted on all of the children equally and Olive grew up wanting nothing (well nothing big. Likes most kids she wanted the lasted game systems and what not).
    Olive never had a problem making friends because she was an over sharing chatterbox who people tended to like. She was goofy and always excited about something, so when she got to high school, she was almost always the life of the party.

    Items brought along:
    Polka dot backpack
    Digital Camera
    Three water bottles
    Hair scrunchies
    Wallet (ID, Target gift card, Insurance Card)
    Smartphone
    Headphones
    Large bag of trail mix

    Fears and phobias:
    x Equinophobia - A fear of horses, when Olive was younger as a treat for her eight birthday, her parents took her and her siblings to a petting zoo. Olive enjoyed the experience until the very end when she was roughhousing with her brothers and she accidentally fell into one of the horses enclosures, and knocked into an ill tempered mare who then kicked her. Olive didn't suffer many injuries as the kick was a warning, but the memory of being faced with a massive beast that was huffing angrily into her face, has given her a fear of being near them or even looking at pictures of them.
    x Homichlophobia - Fear of fog. In sixth grade, Olive went on a trip to England with her entire class. During that trip she happened to get separated from her group and while trying to find them she got lost in a fog. The sight of a fog doesn't scare her, it's the fact that anyone or anything can be hiding in it, waiting to assault her.

    Transport: She rode in Sapphire's car.

  19. Name: Christian Creel

    Age: 18; soon to hit nineteen.
    Sex: Male, last time he checked.

    Appearance: Christian is a young man of average height, usually wearing a fairly serious expression upon his solemn face. His hair is sandy blonde and kept in a messy style, usually kept under a grey fedora Christian wears often. His eyes are of a sturdy brown colour, and his skin is pale upon his lanky, non-muscular build.
    Picture (open)
    [​IMG]


    Bio: Christian's childhood wasn't the best, to say the least. Growing up with a dead mother and a heroine addict for a father was hard, but bearable. Christian's father was kindhearted and not abusive towards Christian, but the heroine always ruined everything. Soon, Christian's father was hospitalised due to an overdose. Realising his errors, Christian's father spent all of his remaining funds on sending Christian to a good boarding school before he passed away.

    With his solemn and serious attitude, Christian didn't make many friends, but soared academically. He was bullied for a little while, but soon the bullies were humiliated due to a cunning trap Christian set up to get revenge. Christian continued to get high grades, and soon moved to college. He plans to be a detective one day.

    As soon as Christian heard about the mansion, he refused to believe any of the rumours about the place being haunted. Figuring this would be a good way to test himself, Christian became determined to prove the mansion wasn't in any way paranormal.

    "I'm going to get to the bottom of this - at all costs."


    Items brought along: Christian is wearing a slim grey jacket, a white dress shirt, grey dress trousers and a pair of neat black shoes. He's also wearing his favoured grey fedora. Inside the pockets of his jacket and trousers, Christian owns:
    • A small, black notebook along with a ballpoint pen.
    • A Swiss Army Knife.
    • A tiny black torch (or flashlight, whichever you prefer.)
    • An old-fashioned mobile phone. It has a high battery life, though.
    • A pack of various coloured chalks.
    • A magnifying glass. Cliche, but effective.
    • Two glowsticks. Eerie green colour; still in the packet.
    "I'm sure to come prepared."

    Fears and phobias: Although Christian is brave, there's one thing he can't stand: bats. Bats freak him out and completely break his brave demeanour; he doesn't know what it is about them that made him faint the one time he saw them.
    "There'd better not be any bats in this damned place. Otherwise..."

    Transport: Christian's drove in with his grey Ford Mondeo. Not classy whatsoever, but it was all he could afford with the little funds he had remaining. And hey; it's a pretty reliable car.
