GROUP IC: OPEN SIGNUPS - Freak Show Come one, Come all. To the best Freak Show of them all. There are tales, Oh yes. Of Children who play at night, Of People who walk the streets. They disappear. Oh yes. But fret not, traveler. They are found, believe me. But they are not the same, oh no. They are changed. Altered. Different. But quite the same as the night they left. Will you care to watch my show? I am the Ring Master. And these are my puppets. "You see my puppets, do you? I assure you, I made them myself. Arent they beautifully grotesque? You'll come watch them play, wont you?" You are the creation of the mind of the Ring Master. Taken from your loving home and into the rough life of the circus, changed and altered forever. Your goal? Escape. Leave. However. You are bound to him by magic. Sorcery. Spells. You cannot walk, run, swim or fly away. There is a barrier barring you from the outside world. You cannot interact with the crowd for help, or fear punishment after the curtains close. "You address me as Master. Do you understand, puppet?" Character Sheet; Name Age Appearance Origin Personality Alteration Special Ability Act How long have they been in the circus? Are they new or a veteran? Feel free to add anything you'd like to the CS :) The Ring Master is to be played by the GM (me) Your characters will play as pieces in this game the Ring Master has created. You are taken from your loving home and reconstructed into the Ring Master's own image. For instance, a little girl transformed into a living marionette doll, and her act will be a living puppet in the circus. Rules; -Minimum of 3 paragraphs; NO one liners. -Posting requirement skill; adept. You don't have to be an expert, but grammar and spelling is key with the exception of a few errors. -Max of 2 characters per person. -This is a plot based roleplay. Your character will not be the 'superhero' of the RP and allow everyone to escape. The Ring Master is in control, which is played by the GM. We will discuss plot direction in the OOC thread. -DO NOT go OOC in the IC thread. I will remove you from the RP. If you have something to say that is not in your characters dialogue, you say it in the OOC thread. -Have fun with this roleplay. Its meant to interact with other characters. Don't be that one character that is by himself and has no speech each post. It is a morbid roleplay, but its also meant to be fun. -Be as creative as you can be. Characters have no requirements when it comes down to it. They have to be altered in some way, and the rest is up to you. -You cannot start posting in the IC thread unless I have accepted your CS. My own Characters; "Come one, Come all. To the Dark Carnival of Wonders." The Ring Master. My Age is insignificant, Pet. You address me as Master, and nothing else. See you do, and you will be punished. And oh, my Pet, you do not wish to be. I am not cruel, less you make me upset. Do you wish to upset me, Pet? I give you shelter and provisions, yet you still loathe me. Why is that, Pet? I am your friend. We are here to entertain. Aren't you? ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ "Who, Me..? "I don't know where I am.... I'm scared.." Age 10 Payton Aegis Payton originates from a small town off the coast of Long Island, New York. With a small family of five, her parents and sibling, she was living a low and comfortable life. Until the Carnival, however. After being taken away by the Ring Master, Aegis has two small ears poking from the top of her head, a small cat tail that hangs from her lower back, and two fluffy paws that extend from her ankles. Aegis is not new to the circus. She is closest to the Ring Master in terms of being there the longest, and is often in charge of welcoming new Acts in the circus. Aegis can jump to magnificent heights, up to 15 feet with no support but her own legs. Her Act in the circus involves jumping from net to net, leaping through flaming hoops, ect. Aegis is small and sweet, in charge of the newcomers because of her charming nature. Her voice is almost the chime of bells, and her temper is not easily lost. She is caring, as well as nurturing for being at such a small age. She has no recollection of her family after being altered, so her only memories are of that of the Circus.
