Ever since there was a massive outbreak on a disease, doctors had been running around all day, trying to cure it. Loved ones have been lost, and disturbing scenes have been witnessed. However, all these deaths that revolved around a single disease, every victim who was part of it... Were all brutally murdered. That's right, they are found on the hospital beds, the sheets stained with blood and ranging from a simple kill to a torture house. Police officers have been looking for clues on who the mysterious murder could be, and why it were only these people who were killed. They have yet to find the answer. They have been searching, for 5 years in fact, and the killer nor the source of this illness has been discovered even by the most talented scientists. However, one day, the scientists have found an incredible discovery, None of these people have actually died. It was inconceivable, and yet there it was. Although brutally strangled, killed, and possibly disorientated, the past patients were alive, somewhere, but where could they be? That was the one answer that man kind could not have came up with, even though they were barely alive and breathing. There were rare occasions when someone with this had sprung back to life after their wounds were healed, and people cried tears of joy. However, upon questioning, they seemed to have lost all memory of being diagnosed with the disease all together. But the question is what is the disease? Who is the killer? What does this have to do with people sprinting back to life? Why are they not dead in the first place? It was just another mystery to be solved... ~~~~~~~~~ However, in reality, a little girl smiles and laughs as they attempt to solve her mystery. The people who were killed, more or less, were sent somewhere she called it 'the dream'. The dream was a pleasant place, originally a place with no starvation, no hardships, no stress, no poverty, everything was nice, happy, and perfect. At least, that's what it all seemed. They were all playing by the hand of a goddess, who was curious as to how much the human race wanted to live. The dream's appearance revolved around one's mental and emotional state. Meaning when they enter, any previous sicknesses and diseases would be eliminated, and so they can move freely. However, this is the difference between someone who is happy with someone who is depressed. Happy - They will move freely, meet luck, do good in school, work, relationships and everything else. Neutral - They will move freely, however have less luck, and more of a realistic probability of situations. Sad - It will be gloomy for them, and they will feel a slight headache pounding their head. Also, their luck is slightly reduced. Angry - Everything in their eyes and mind is distorted, they can't think clearly, and they are prone to stress. Depressed - Everything in their eyes and mind is distorted, and everything they see will scare the hell out of them. Although this is very simple, these stages affect those in the dream heavily and can result in a life or death. When in the 'depressed zone' for longer than 3 dream days (I will say what time of day it is and when the day is over) then they will be sent to the 'nightmare'. The nightmare is where all the depressed people go, and it is literally hell. They are forced in a sick environment where everything is messed up, however are unaware that this is all an illusion, and the monsters cannot hurt them in the nightmare unless they allow them to. There are 2 states the character can be in here. Depressed - As stated above, however emphasized due to excessive gore and mutant monsters. Brave - The only hope of getting out. If the character is able to think that the monsters cannot hurt them, and has a determined outlook, they may return to the happy dream and begin with 'Neutral'. Those who are able to leave the dream will have a few options on what they want. The only way to leave the dream is to realize that this isn't the real world, and that they are, in fact, dreaming. 1. Return to their old life and have a wish granted. (Wish must be for another person, and the character will live a long life with a very painless death.) 2. Go to heaven and wish for something for their next life, or for someone currently alive. 3. (Elderly) To move onto heaven and wish for something for their next life. Those in the nightmare will have 5 dream days to brave. (Those in the nightmare MUST post in grey font). If they do not brave in those 5 days, they will be sent to hell. (Meaning they will be no longer able to play as that character in this role play.) Also, they can be sent to hell by 'dying'. Although they cannot physically die in the dream, then can emotionally and mentally lose all hope and 'die' like that, automatically being sent to hell. Finally, those who are ALIVE (Meaning not in the dream or the nightmare) will post in GREEN FONT. Rules 1. No god modding. I know it's a dream, but come on. 2. Yes you can fly and you can pretend you have magic powers (Available to Happy and Neutral) 3. Please make it realistic. Don't go from Depressed to suddenly happy all at once please, take time to develop your character's feelings and mental + emotional state. 4. Yes, you may role play as a living person without the disease. 5. Please fill out the character sheet below, and have no more than 2 characters. 6. Absolutely no meta-gaming! 7.
