Murder IX: Right Hand of the Crimson Moon Themed around Type-Moon, notably Fate/stay night and Tsukihime, along with some possible elements of Fate/Extra, and Raildex, notably A Certain Magical Index with some elements of A Certain Scientific Railgun. In context of the Murder Series, it will chronologically follow Murder VIII: Legend of Zelda Extravaganza and Murder VIII½: Illusion Breaker. In context of Type-Moon, it will take place concurrently with the events of Fate/stay night and Melty Blood. In context of Raildex, it will take place during the British Royal Family Arc and DRAGON Arc, before leading into the World War III Arc. It should also be noted that this follows alternate versions of the Document of Constantine and Battle Royale Arcs, as well as the epilogue of Tsukihime and the prologue of Fate/stay night, resulting in some details being changed from the original franchises due to the events of the earlier Murder Games. Synopsis There are infinite worlds out there. Dimensions different from our own. And there are some who can travel between these worlds and dimensions. To some, this is known as the Multi-Dimensional Refraction Phenomenon, or more simply, the Second Magic. It is a power sought after by many. One legendary artifact is rumored to be able to perform the Second Magic, to travel through these different dimensions, known as the Jeweled Sword of Zelretch, wielded by the mysterious Kischur Zelretch Schweinorg, one of the oldest and most powerful mages ever. Power in itself is an item sought after heavily, and those with power can only seek more. Like so, a powerful yet ambitious magician named Fiamma of the Right, also known as the head of the organization God's Right Seat, has managed to acquire a fake copy of the Jeweled Sword of Zelretch from Rin Tohsaka, hoping to obtain absolute power. However, the misuse of the copied, false Jeweled Sword has created a rift in space, time, and reality, causing the dimensions to collide into one another and essentially combine, bringing together worlds undergoing great wars. However, this also results in a group of unlikely "heroes” banding together to defeat Fiamma of the Right and restore balance to the multiverses, guided by those who wish to aid them. However, the road will be difficult, filled with many obstacles. Traitors will be lurking within the band, as well as a number of other obstacles in the way. Will they be able to restore the balance before it's too late? Roles Survivors - The standard role. Your main objective is to thwart the schemes of the villains and uncover the Traitors before endgame. Traitors - The murderers who will attempt to destroy the group from inside out by killing a Survivor each round, acting for possible reasons like being mind-controlled by the villain, voluntarily working for him, etc. Agents - A small group of participants who have the ability to investigate suspects and determine if they're Traitors without fail. Like how a Traitor may only submit one kill per round for the most part, Agents may only choose to "investigate" one person per round to see if they are guilty. Notes 1. I'd highly advise joining the Murder Series group if you're a newcomer. You'll be able to interact with the other players there, among other people, in the chat thread, and keep up with the game in the RP Discussion thread as well! This is also useful to prevent any OOC talk inside the IC, which is greatly discouraged. 2. Compared to previous Murder Events, this will have a slightly different afterlife system. While those who have been murdered may still get the chance to be revived and reunite with the main group, these opportunities, compared to other events, will be few and far between, as this afterlife system will involve a background plot that will eventually tie into the primary plot. 3. As a student, I'd like to say in advance that there won't be any GMing on my part on weekdays until around 3:30 PM CST at the earliest, though I'll likely be available for the majority of the days on weekends, not factoring in the possible homework and testing that I'll have to focus on as well. Still, hopefully this shouldn't be too much of a problem as long as the co-GMs I've picked, @OrlandoBloomers and @TheSpringwoodSlasher, do well at keeping it afloat in my absence. I'll do my best to keep in contact with you all in the Murder Series group, so don't worry about me disappearing too much. Character Sheet Appearance: What does your character look like? Picture optional. Name: What is your character named, or what do they go by? Age: How old is your character? Canon: Where is your character from? Not needed if you are signing up as an OC. Powers / Abilities / Attributes: What are some notable things that your character can do, is good at, etc.? Personality: What's your character like? Weaknesses: Any notable weaknesses or flaws your character might have? Fears: What's your character scared of? Noble Phantasm: Optional. Basically your character's "ultimate attack." Will only be usable when your character's power is restored and after two successful "dice rolls." Will be explained more in-depth inside the game when it starts. Rules 1. Naturally, Iwaku's rules apply here. 2. Knowledge of the previous Murder Games, or the Type-Moon or Raildex franchises, are not required to participate in this. 3. Only a limited amount of duos are allowed in the game. OCs are free game though. 4. Depending on how strong your character exactly is in their respective canon, they may have to nerf them so they don't completely own everything in sight and essentially prevent any godmodding. There's no fun if there's no challenge after all. Meta-gaming is also not allowed, though concerning Traitor votes, OOC voting will not be punished. 5. 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. 6. Due to the size and 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. 7. To traitors, all kills will be done through a special group PM. To agents, all investigations will be done through a similar PM. By extension, duos will act as one character. Thus, when one dies, the other part of the duo will also be killed. Same goes for when they are investigated, and when they vote. 8. In the sign-ups, reserves will only last for roughly 2 days. If you have not made a character sheet by then, your reserve will be revoked, though you may still make a character sheet if there is still available room afterwards.

THE IC HAS ARRIVED Murder IX: Right Hand of the Crimson Moon | IwakuRoleplay.com The IC is up and going! Do note that I'm still accepting sign-ups for the time being, and they'll probably be closed around the fifth (out of eight) chapter or so, so there's still plenty of time if you haven't made a sheet yet! Reservation expiration As the rule I put has stated that reservations are supposed to expire after two days, your time is up: @Atomyk (duo) @Thuro The Assassin Potato (duo) @OrlandoBloomers (shame on you co-gm) @coralprime @Josh M Do note that even though your reservations have expired, you can still sign up for a character, so I suggest you hassle on 'em. Heck, I even gave some of you guys an extra day! Anywho, remember, the intended day for the IC to start is coming very soon, so hurry it up! Approximate Starting Time Just lettin' y'all know that the IC should go up at around roughly Friday, September 25, around 4 CST at the earliest to possibly Sunday, September 27 at the latest. We'll see. Appearance Name Illyasviel "Illya" Einzbern Age Biologically appears to be around 13 Canon Type-Moon Powers / Abilities / Attributes Powerful mage. Full extent of her powers are to be revealed in the RP. Personality Illya is cheerful and outgoing, upbeat and generally exhibits a positive attitude. Possessing a friendly demeanor, she is easy to talk to and tends to be playful and mischievous. Deep inside, however, Illya is lonely as she has no friends her own age to play with and is often stuck inside the Einzbern castle honing her magecraft. She asks those she feels comfortable around to call her "Illya." It can be said that Illya gets her outward personality from her mother. Like her mother, she is kind and has the qualities of a child. However, she also has a measure of her father in her, as she can be callous and kill others without remorse. Weaknesses Childish and somewhat naive. Not used with much social interaction, despite being somewhat outgoing. Fears Being completely alone. Noble Phantasm The Dress of Heaven - To be revealed in the RP.
