    It was a typical slumber party; watching movies, eating popcorn, playing board games, talking gossip. At least, for the most part it was. Just as everyone got ready for bed, seventeen-year-old Miyako suggested that they play a different kind of game. A game she called, M I D N I G H T - M U R D E R

    A simple game to pass time. After writing "V" for "Victim" on three small sheets of paper and "M" for "Murderer" on the fourth, they're folded and placed in a pile. Everyone picks one and secretly takes a look at their "role". Then, you turn off the lights...

    If you're a victim, your objective is to stay out of reach of everyone else.

    If you're a murderer, you have to find a victim and tap them three times.


    Once a victim has been tapped, they're supposed to say something like, "I'm dead!" or "I've been killed!" At this point, everyone else gathers around as the victim takes a flashlight in the dark and tells the tale of his/her death (makes it up for fun). After this, the lights are turned back on, and everyone sits in a circle to bring the "court" into session.

    One by one, we cast votes on who we think the murderer is. When majority rules on a person, you check their slip of paper. If the person is truly the murdered, he/she is sentenced to death by the court & its game over. If the majority is wrong, then the actual murder springs up and mock-kills everyone else for dramatic and comedic purposes & then it's game over.

    That was how the game was played...[/align][align=right]
    But in reality, it was quite...different...

    • When the game commences in the roleplay, everyone who is playing rolls a five-sided dice twice (separately). [2d5] Based on your first roll, I'll determine the murderer and the victims. Based on your second roll, I'll determine who "dies." ~ then you can rp it :)
    • I will post the "setting" of the room beforehand so that you can actually roleplay the "gameplay"... i.e the lurking and hiding in shadows when the M searches for the V. The Vs can like talk or crash into each other or things and whisper and M can too. Its like a normal, catch me in the dark game except no one knows who the murderer is.
    • Victim tells his/her story
    • The court is in session
      The Murderer is guessed correctly~ end of game.
      The Murderer is guessed incorrectly ~ mock killing
    • Normal life continues~
    • Next day, news of a person's death is heard.The person's description and death will match that of the victim killed in the game. If the others' were "mock killed", there will be parallel people killed, too.

    [align=right]
    The question is...Now that you know~[/align]
    [align=left]
    Will you keep playing..?[/align]


    ------Just in case I didn't make this clear ~
    If you play, then you can't be the one who dies~ its always the person you described. But if you don't play, you might be killed...However, can you play with the guilt?

  9. *comedic sigh* Alright alright, this is the first one that I have really really really liked in a looooong time. If that means I have to play dice then so be it. I'll have a sheet up tomorrow.
     

  10. Name: Noriko Takahashi
    Age: 17
    [​IMG]
    Occupation: Student; working through her junior year.
    Connection to Mitsuka Case:A strange one, to say the least; recently Noriko's drawings have depicted events leading up to the death of Mitsuka with frightening accuracy.
    Personality: Noriko is normally quiet and anti social, watching for the slightest hint of danger from anyone. She is prone to violent outbursts or prolonged periods of intense focus (mostly on drawing)
    History:
    Norkio was an art student, with a fine social life and a bright future ahead of her.

    Until around a few years ago. Noriko went off the deep end, and is now a full-blown paranoid schizophrenic. Her parents keep good care of her, and she's mostly non-violent, but Noriko is a deeply disturbed young girl. Her drawings are filled with images of death, she keeps a knife within a foot of her at all times, and she is constantly worrying about threats, real or imagined. Noriko is allowed to go to school, and keep her weapons, as she's usually pretty stable. Usually.

    She's cut her hair recently, so that there's less for someone to get a hold of. That should give you a good idea as to how her life is lived.

    Death Scenario: Strangled (facing her killer) on a rooftop.
     
  11. Wow, creepy, but great~ She's totally in~ love the mystery ;]

    **By the way, after realizing that I never considered what big images would do to the image to the right layout, I changed it. Sorry for the trouble Miru <3
     
  12. Maine
    The pair barely had time to react as Anderson seemingly predicted their attack. One second Nyx and Maine were about to hit the man, the next second Maine was slapped across the face by a sword and sent flying. Shit... Nyx fared better as she was simply knocked off course. Once she recovered she slipped back in the ground, circling Anderson. Occasionly she would make a quick strike with her hand in order to further distract Anderson.

    At this point, Maine was beyond frustrated. Here he was completely inexperienced in swordfighting and ordered to fight a master. What was he supposed to get out of this session? He slammed his fist into the sandy ground and as his hand sank into the coarse sand, an idea hit him. Discretely scooping a handful of sand, he stood up and slowly approached Anderson, sword in front. When he was at the right distance he threw the sand into the face of Anderson, following it with a stab to the chest. The man wanted something surprising so Maine was going to give him what he wanted. With any luck the sand would blind Anderson and give Maine a much needed opening.
