The game has ended! Murder IV: Monokuma Rising No matter who you are, no matter what life you've lead, it happens on what you would have considered otherwise to be a normal and boring day. It comes upon you suddenly, your world beginning to twist and spin. You could be walking your dog, or you could be in the midst of a heated debate, either way, you feel your whole body go completely numb. Your vision fades to an indiscriminate blur, spinning wildly. Swirling and twirling and whirling and curling... into a thick, syrupy, viscous pulp... and the next second-- Darkness. That was just the beginning. You eventually woke up in an unfamiliar place-- a school. A strange plush bear calling himself Monokuma welcomed you to your new life, a life of murder and danger. You were kidnapped, you believe, but how and why escapes you. The bear seems to be the culprit, but he can't be all that he seems, can he? ... And what's that about zombies? Though this Murder Game incarnation takes heavy inspiration from Danganronpa, it will still follow the Murder Games rules. What are those rules, exactly? Well... Traitors: There will be three traitors for this Murder Game. Each round they will PM me who to kill and the method of death. In no way, shape, or form are they permitted to release their role in this event. I'll be picking three people at random to be the traitors, though you'll be able to pass on the role if you do get picked. If you do hope to get this role, try and think of a reason for your character to commit murder. This can be to fulfill a wish, to protect a loved one, to change the past... any character can be a traitor with the right motivation. Students: Everyone else is a normal player (Or a student, as Monokuma will refer to everyone). Vote for who you believe the traitor after each murder, from there, after the round ends, the majority vote will win. We'll see if everyone guessed right! Will there be other roles? HMMM... Keep in mind that each traitor is allowed to be an unreliable narrator. By no means should one vote solely based on the inner thoughts of another character, as it's entirely possible for a good guy/girl to be one of the traitors! It would be preferred that your characters have IC reasons to vote the way they do, as voting will be an IC action, though you won't be reprimanded for voting solely based on OOC reasons. 1.) Absolutely zero knowledge is required of either the previous Murder Games or Danganronpa to participate, I promise. (And as I'm sure someone might be wondering, I'm using NISA's translation when it comes to Danganronpa terms) 2.) Only fandom characters and AUs of fandom characters may be apped. I'll be accepting very few OCs. Also, people from real life can not be apped. 3.) Your characters will keep their abilities and powers, but keep in mind these powers will be heavily nerfed, so that characters with no powers would realistically be able to take on those with powers in a fight. 4.) This has been a pesky problem in the past, but PLEASE keep OOC chatter to a minimum. We have an OOC section on our Murder Group here: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/xfa-groups-th...c-section.5402/ 5.) It's highly suggested that in this RP (And in any RP, really) that you make an effort to interact with the other characters. A lone wolf is no fun and kind of suspicious! 6.) So no one is ignored, it's suggested that you skim over everyone's posts. You don't necessarily have to read it all, but look for your character's name! Due to the amount of characters, if you can, tag those that you plan to interact with in your post. 7.) If you're a traitor, all kills are done via PM -and- after the collaboration of your fellow traitors as to who to kill. In no way are you allowed to tell what your role is to anyone, doing so will result in immediate expulsion from the Murder event. 8.) If you're not aware, if you're sentenced to die by a traitor via PM... it's an insta-death! But don't fret! Once you die, there's an “afterlife” game, whose plot will be told once the first player death occurs, and eventually, you'll find your way back to the players! 9.) I can guarantee you the first day will be absolute CHAOS. Why? People will be writing prologues, trying to find partners, etc. So, like rule #5, try to find a partner ASAP, keep calm, and try to skim through everyone's post, searching for your name. Eventually, as the Murder game continues on, it'll come at a steady pace... well, maybe not, there are +40 people. 10.) There will be moments where players are asked NOT to post; this is usually before large updates or mid-round updates. Please comply! 11.) No godmodding, no matter your role! I really hope you know what that term means. I may have to godmod players a bit for certain points in the RP, but I promise to keep it to a bearbare minimum. 12.) This one is kind of important! I'd love for everyone vote every round, but I realize some people might just not have the time. At the very least, I want everyone to post at least once each round. As each round should last a few days at the least, that comes to posting at least once every few days, which is pretty fair I think. If you become inactive and don't post, your character will likely be eliminated in some manner. You may app up to two characters, but keep in mind that if you do, they must be a duo, meaning they're from the same canon and are likely to hang out with each other (So two hated enemies? Not so good). They will function as a single character, meaning they will only get a single vote between them and will both die if one is targeted. Appearance: Character Name: Age: Attributes/Powers: [Your strengths/weakness, skills, and abilities are included here] Personality: 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"] Canon: [What they're from, basically] Item of Importance: [ONE item, weapon or outfit of importance to your character. This can be items/weapons they are likely to have on them when they black out. If its an item/weapon, it must be not very large. No bigger than, say, a broadsword Provide a picture or a description if you can.] SPACES CLOSED Cast List: @Akibahara as The Noob and The Engineer (Battlefield Friends) @Joellie as Edward Kenway (Assassin's Creed) @Archmage Jeremiah as Risa Megan Ward and Connor Lassiter (Unwind) @TheColourlessRainbow as Ley von Crimson River and Rufus Wilde (Grand Chase) @Ziogen as Revya and Gig (Soul Nomad) @Dallas as Don "Wardaddy" Collier (Fury) @Verite as Kirei Kotomine (Fate/stay night) @york as Ruby Rose (RWBY) @Zadok shadows as Zane Bowerstone (Fable) @Krieg as Arya Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire) @Klutzy Ninja Kitty as River Song (Doctor Who) @MrDubWubs as Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail) @StarryNight as Chrome Dokuro (Katekyo Hitman Reborn) @Raven as Wuya and Jack Spicer (Xiaolin Showdown) @DapperDogman as Intersection's Pretty Boy (Undying Love) @Chello as Loki Laufeyson (Thor) @Nassione as Korra (The Legend of Korra) @Conrad Norwood as Robin (Fire Emblem) @Xibilation as Elizabeth Swann-Turner (Pirates of the Caribbean) @Reaper Jack as Lilia Kjaernestejd (Innocentius Luna) @Gummi Bunnies as Erika Furudo and Dlanor A.
