Don't slip and fall, now, little inspector, for a false move could be your last... Jack will come, and only you can stop him! Status: Open and Accepting Applications! Rating: PG-13 - Contains mention of murder, prostitution, some blood and dead bodies of fictional origins. Disclaimer: While the events have roots in the mysteries surrounding Jack the Ripper, only London as a city along with Whitechapel and other districts will be real, along with the Victorian Era as a whole. First Stop; The Overview! On the night of May 6th, 1888, in the Saint-Jude Hospital in Oxford, a peculiar event took place in the morgue. That peculiar event was only noticed the following morning, however, and the various doctors present promptly called on the scene, the matter pressing for it's morbid and frightening nature; a body was gone and the guard on duty that night laid half eaten on the paved floor, a trail of blood resembling bare feet leading out of the dissection table and to a wall where the simple name Jack was written in the crimson liquid. The missing corpse, or monster as some of the less stoically minded finders whispered between them, was one of unknown origin, having been found strangely intact yet dead two days prior in Whitechapel. Most of the fact and evidence found that night also were lost or destroyed in the panic of the poor doctors, and that will cause you quite a bit of an headache. Why? Ah, have you forgot? You are a newly minted constable of London, after all, and your first district just happens to be Whitechapel... where said corpse was found. It is thus your and your fellow policemen's job to uncover the mystery, find the corpse and take the perpetrator of both the grave-robbing and murder to Justice. Good luck... you'll need it, for in a few months all hell will break loose upon your district should you fail. Second Stop; What you need to know... You will start this tale as a new cop, in a lousy one room lodging in Whitechapel that you will have to pay for every night with some of your salary, the later you will receive every fortnight as the amount of eight shillings, this small stipend needing to be buffered with bonuses gained by doing tasks for your local constabulary and by solving small cases. You will start with barely enough to feed and house yourself, I won't lie, but with hard work and a quick mind you will gain ranks in no time. Speaking of ranks, the following will be the ranks you can gain during the roleplay: Police Constable Sergeant Inspector Chief Inspector Work well and you may even survive the coming storm... The second part of this section is how each day will unfold: Each day, from 6 AM to 8 PM, you will be free to do as you please, from working on cases to sleeping to even make a life for yourself, your time separated in individual hours that you can spend as you will, though you must sleep at least eight hours during that time and eat at least one hour, reducing you healthy time to five hours. When 8 PM strike, it will be time for you to take on the uniform and do your duties, with things getting from boring and safe to dangerous and frightening depending on the digital dice you will throw at that time, the ten sided dice getting more and more dangerous and potentially rewarding the higher it falls. After each such shift, you will give out a report to your superior and, depending on how you do,be given more cases to solve as you will. Be aware that your first priority is survival, followed only second by Jack's case. Now, for those who are a little more sociable, you can share you case with others in order to complete them faster or with greater ease than you would normally, the downside being of course a downed pay, though only a quarter of your solving bonus will be removed from your payroll, so it is still a very advantageous option. Finally, every IC hour, or round if you prefer, will be summarized by me before the next one commence, giving out consequences of failures and rewards of success. Fell free to get creative and explore, while in daylight, thing are far more safe!
