Things to expect from this rp: Content Rating Guide: Character Death, Gore, Graphic Violence, Language: Mild, Mindfuck Posting Expectations: Intermediate to Advanced Genre: Murder/Mystery GMs: Hipster Rin, Reveries in Red (why is this important? Keep reading!) This roleplay is a murder/mystery roleplay that centers in London in the year 1817. Starting with one murder, and escalating to many, the roleplayers must roleplay as a member of the police force, a coroner, a solo detective, a member of the Scotland Yard, or any realistic occupation for this time period and follow clues, hints, and riddles given by the GMs to find the suspects and narrow them down to solve this crime spree. That's right. The GMs, Reveries in Red and I (plus another friend or two who helped us make this if I can get them to join Iwaku) already know the culprit(s) and whodunit. You, as the rper, won't have a clue until you figure it out. The GMs will still roleplay, of course, but we're not allowed to solve the mystery (as we already know the ending, duh, that would be pointless). To spice things up a bit, we might even include other members into the suspect pool through IM. The culprits aren't always limited to our characters. After this mystery is solved, a new cast of characters may be put into use and another mystery formed. After all, London is a large city full of intrigue! Rules and Expected Behavior Don't be a tool: Yes, I'm serious. "Being a tool" in my terms basically means don't godmod, powerplay, or be a Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu. Stick with the Content Labels: This will be a mature roleplay, that is true. But anything not warned about in the title is not allowed, or only allowed in PM. This will not be an 18+ roleplay, so keep that in mind. Being a jerk is not allowed: Or, you're specifically not allowed to be a jerk. Your character can be the AntiChrist for all I care. But if I catch you bullying another member, harassing, insulting, or otherwise going against any of Iwaku's rules, you'll be issued a warning or kicked and reported, depending on the severity. Be Realistic: This was an issue back in the original version of this roleplay, on another forum. If it didn't primarily exist in this time period, don't use it. I'll be a little loose about the language used, but not overly. The biggest issue was a bunch of women having roles that wouldn't be common at the time. It's okay for a few women detectives and so on, but please don't flood this post with them. Please? (PS: Making women is not discouraged. Just don't make them all detectives, because most of the men will probably ridicule them or ignore them.) Character Forms Username || Character Name || Gender || Age || Profession (Description of your character. Include physical appearance, habits, likes and dislikes, and anything else you find worth mentioning. I won't require you to add a personality, since most people don't stick to the personalities they post in their original form anyway.) I think I covered about everything. I'll get started on my forms, and if you have a question about anything, Red and I will try our hardest to answer them.
