    This roleplay is the 14th in a series of fandom crossover RPs referred to as the Murder Series, named such due to most of the games carrying a murder mystery theme or something similar. This particular iteration is based off elements from the Danganronpa series, the Alan Wake series, and series inspired by Twin Peaks. Absolutely zero knowledge of the canons involved or the previous RPs are or will be required for this game.

    You wake up on a school bus driving down a lonely road deep in the Pacific Northwest. You're not sure how you got there or why-- you just don't remember. Were you kidnapped? Is it memory loss? What else could it possibly be? As you try to wrack your brain for answers, you can't help but notice that this bus is packed with other people and you likely don't recognize a single one of them.

    As the bus winds its way along the forest road, you soon find it's on its way toward a quaint little town called Bright Falls. No one can be sure if they've heard of it, and it's not entirely clear if the town is everything it seems...

    [​IMG]

    "Hey! Wait a minute!"

    [​IMG]

    "That sounds way too sinister! No, Usami is here to help! I may not look like it, but I am your squeezably soft teacher, and I am your chaperone for your school trip! I'm going to accompany you students on the trip of a lifetime! You'll take in the scenic sights of Bright Falls while you enjoy yourselves some authentic outdoors living in the town's national park! Let your heart embrace a simple lifestyle in order to cleanse your soul!

    So, just have fun!"


    [​IMG]

    Every single character will be referred to as a "student", but they have no real role. In that sense, essentially, there are no roles in this game and so everyone is on equal ground.

    However, this does not mean the game won't involve murder mysteries. Unlike past games, NPCs are the characters the players have to mistrust. In this game, the NPCs (played by myself and my co-GMs) will be the murderers, and the players will be roped into investigating their crimes.

    The plot of the game will revolve around this string of murders and the tone of the ending will rely on the players' ability to investigate the clues and pinpoint which NPCs committed the deeds.

    [​IMG]

    "Wait! No way! No one will die, that's ridiculous! There's nothing dangerous about Bright Falls! Everyone is so nice and welcoming! Besides... we won't even have to run into any of them! We're just camping out in the woods! Fun!

    Please, everyone, don't worry about a thing!"



    [​IMG]

    1. You must follow in accordance to Iwaku's rules.

    2. No OOC talk in the IC. Please take all OOC discussion to the group's General Chat and all roleplay discussion to the group's RP Discussion.

    3. No godmodding or metagaming. It is heavily preferred that most discussion related to the RP's investigations occur IC as opposed to OOC. If you're unsure what godmodding or metagaming is, refer to either WORKSHOP - Godmodding and Metagaming or this blog post.

    4. Players of any writing ability and preferred post length are free to post how they like. One or six paragraphs, as long as it's in-character, it's fine. I also have no qualms with players wishing to use pictures or gifs in tandem with their posts, but do please keep image spam to a minimum and try not to use very large pictures. If you do use a picture, please make sure to include text as well, as posts consisting of just a picture/gif, no matter how in-character, will be considered OOC talk or spam.

    5. More of an addition to the above rule, do try your best with spelling and grammar. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it needs to be understandable. An on-site guide to grammar you can read through for help can be found here: WORKSHOP - Grammarholics Anonymous - Your Grammar Guide!.

    6. Some certain actions and events might require dice rolls, but only if I say so. It won't be a common thing.

    7. Due to the speed of the game, it is practically a requirement to seek out other users to be your 'posting partners' so that you have some people you can stick with. Using the tagging system is absolutely required. This is actually very important. It's fine (and encouraged) to only keep up with a few characters/players for the majority of the game, as that is far easier than trying to keep tabs on everyone. Summaries and important GM posts will be made prominent.

    8. I won't be allowing duos for this game. Only one character can be applied for.

    9. OCs are allowed, but only up to a limit of five. I would rather fandom characters outnumbered OCs.

    10. All character powers, no matter how big or strong, will be removed. This basically includes any supernatural or fantastical ability beyond that of a regular human/alien/robot/whatever you choose. Characters that require their powers to live or project themselves in some manner will be able to live/take on that form without the use of their powers. There will be an in-character reason for these power nerfs.

    11. Please post once a chapter. Chapters will generally last from a few days to a week in length, though that time will likely increase as the RP goes on. Not doing so will result in your character possibly being removed from the game. At the very least, PM me if anything comes up and I'll do my best to keep you around.

    12. Be respectful toward everyone! Have fun!

    [​IMG]

    "Everyone, I have some of my own rules in place to promote a peaceful environment and healthy living! Please keep them in mind!

    1. Extreme violence is prohibited on this trip. Please live peaceful and relaxing lives with your fellow students.

    2. Be considerate of each other and work together!

    3. Littering is not allowed. Let us coexist with the forest's bountiful nature in "mutual prosperity".


    4. Destroying any National Park property is expressly prohibited!

    5. The chaperone cannot directly interfere with the students. An exception to this rule is made if any student violates a rule!"


    My Co-GMs will be @Jeremi / @Josh M / @Ringmaster / @T.O.M. / @Verite
    They all will be playing NPCs at various points in the RP on top of their main characters.


    [​IMG]

    This is covered in the rules above, but remember that only one character may be applied for and that all characters will have their special abilities and powers nerfed.

    Ultimate Title: [Think of a title that either embodies your character's personality or something that they are exceptionally good at, such as "Ultimate Positivity", "Ultimate Carpenter", or "Ultimate Hero". You may not use a title someone else in the cast is already using]

    Item of Importance: [ONE item of importance that means something to your character. This is the only item they may have on them when they appear in the game. It can't be a weapon]

    Oh sorry, wrong Morikubo, here's the right one.
    (The history and description is undetailed, likely outdated and doesn't keep up)

    [​IMG]
    You do not know what ultimate pessimism is until you've met Morikubo Nono. Once you get to know her, you will begin to question how she got her earrings. Nono was always known to be afraid of what is believed to be virtually everything. Not even the trees of ten earths is sufficient for her list of phobias. But hey, look at Verite's app. Down there. Ninth post from the page. See?

    Apart from her flamboyant father who works at a photography studio(which is how she got to work in a talent agency via connections as a rookie idol), the only people she seems to trust is her Producer and a few friends. She's pretty afraid of her other friends, and I don't blame her, neither should you.

    Now that she is in an environment void of any familiarity and full of outdoor elements, Nono must face her ultimate nightmare. No shelter, no desk to hide under, no Producer, no Dad, no fri- YOU GET ME. What is this place? As long as it isn't camping, it'll be good.

    She is very prone to crying and frightened hollering. What is frightened hollering? Well, I know someone who knows and he simply commented, 'even the very concept of life and death cowers before it'.
    Her aspirations do not lie in music, but as a to-be writer.

    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    (A young Darv on the right, battling the Sodden Knight, who's armour he now dons)

    Name: Darv

    Age: 32

    Origin: Markdor

    Occupation: Kraeken Hunter

    Character History: After shipwrecking on an island while on his way to escort a princess to her wedding, Darv was sure he would meet his end on the beach. He had a broken leg and his weapon was shattered
    Through some luck, or perhaps the will of fate, he managed to find an oar, and use it to reach a nearby sanctuary

    After repurposing the oar, by adding a crude iron blade to the head, he took up learning how to wield polearms, preferring to keep out of arm's reach, due to his still broken leg. It was this training that saved his life when it came time to do battle with the island's many stalwart guardians

    After felling his first great foe, the Sodden Knight, he glanced down at his fallen form, realising that even men like himself, who would give their lives for their duty, could lose their purpose

    The rest of his journey is too long and detailed to list here (And it's also kinda spoilery for anyone who might possibly be interested in the 2D Souls-like game he comes from)

    Just know that by the time he had reached the heart of the island, he had slain a total of four 'gods' and had found true purpose, in hunting the terrible Kraeken that plagued the land

    Name

    Kyoko Kirigiri

    Age

    Approximately 18-19 years old by now

    Origin

    Japan

    Occupation

    N/A

    Character History

    Kyoko's past is one that is shrouded somewhat in mystery, even to those who know her fairly well, though snippets here and there are known, such as her mother dying when Kyoko was of a very young age. She is of the survivors of the Hope's Peak Academy Incident, alongside a few select others, and with them, she went on to found the Future Foundation in order to fight the greatest threat in her world, known as the Ultimate Despair. That's the basic gist of what she'd let you know, at least.

    She has ties to a certain little-known organization known as the Coalition, though what her relation is to them is known only to her. That is... As far as she knows. Though anyone can venture a guess.



    Ultimate Title

    Ultimate ???

    Item of Importance

    A photograph.

    She ain't telling you what it's of though.

    Other Details

    Her chest size is 32 inches.

    Item of Importance:

    If the GIF wasn't obvious enough, his item of importance is his baseball bat.

    Canon: Teen Wolf

    Other Details: Stiles has been previously posssed by a nogitsune, has died for a a brief moment to save his dad's life. He also is generally right on who to trust and who not to trust. For example, he did not trust Theo, ,Matt, Jackson and Peter Hale, all antagonists in the series. Also, this interaction is just for bonus points/ I like it.

    Name:
    Corrin

    Age: 21 (best guess)

    Origin: The Kingdom of Hoshido/The Kingdom of Nohr (this is complicated.)

    Occupation: Princess of Nohr and Military Commander.

    Character History:

    Avatar (Fates)

    (Specifically the Conquest route.)

    Ultimate Title: Ultimate Protector

    Canon: [What they're from, basically] Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest

    Item of Importance: A white rose that she wears in her hair.

    Personality: Corrin is a kind soul. She will protect the innocent, and is very understanding. In combat, however, she's very fierce. She's protective of those she considers friends and allies, and will defend them.

    Other Details: Corrin is incredibly adverse to killing. She'd much rather just wound someone than outright kill them. She cares deeply for human life, and will begin to freak out if she sees someone else being hurt. This is one of her weaknesses. She's also weak to family members, and things that can actually harm a dragon.​

It's been through it's fair share of turmoil over the years but it's always stood strong! No matter the odds stacked against it. Which makes it as strong a contender for this event as anybody else. So without further ado, here comes the next character to make a splash in the MGs!
