Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen! It's Bane here and good old Dr. Crow. You'll have to pardon my lateness as I am a little late with this challenge. For those of you who don't know. I believe that one of the more important things in roleplaying is getting in character. It does not only make posts more interesting and fun to read, it makes roleplaying for your partner and yourself more fun as a whole. You know? It will feel like less of a chore. We all hate the feeling of chores don't we? Along with getting character, it can also help make posts a little longer. Ask yourself (or your character I supppose) what their doing? How they're feeling? Etc, etc. Even if your post is a one liner, those can become more interesting when you're fully in character I assure you. Now because I am late on this particular Challenge I'm going have two situations instead of one! HOORAY! And then you will pick one (or both if you like both I suppose) and use a character you are using, planning out, or just thought of on the spot to react to it. Let's get started shall we? Situation 5: The wind blows drastically to the east. The smell of animals and burning wood races over the people rushing through the streets. Though some of the people aren't really people at all. Where their face would be is a shadow and does not have any visible facial features. Some feel sinister while others don't. The wind causes fruits and other goods fall out of crates. People rush to get them. A man visibly around his mid thirties picks up some of the food. He taps a native on the shoulder. "What's going on here?" He asks the native. "You mean you don't know? Every year they come, the Shadow People..." It is an old woman's voice, but she does not turn around to face the man. She keep her head forward. "Shadow people?" "Yes the shadow people," The old woman snaps back at him, "They are creatures that judge your character decide if you are worthy enough to stay in this world... sometimes they bless you take you away to fight for them. That is a great honor. You look like a sturdy man perhaps you will be chosen..." The old woman laughs and then fades away. A shadow person approaches your character and touches them on the shoulder. It does not say a single word. (What it's going to do after that is entirely up to you or perhaps your character already knows hm?) Situation 6: "Come one come all to Elrick's Circus! You'll see things you never thought possible. A man whose half-tiger. Don't get too close he bites. There is a girl who can talk to animals in their language. And even a man who can live without his head. But that's not even the most dangerous..." There is a tall man standing outside what appeared to be a large circus tent. His eyes are slightly sinister looking though it was just how he looked. He wore white gloves and a very nice and recently tailored business suit. Next to him was a girl who could not be older than ten who looked rather afraid to be alive and she clung to his side. "Won't you come in and have a look see?" The tall man asks your character his smile making him look even more sinister than before.
