Hey mom... Do you remember that time? That time you told me about those creatures Creatures lurking in the morning mist When I sat by the window In the darkness As the rain stopped and heat came Forming a huge mist out in the field You told me then, not to go outside For these creatures, with their ability to sing Could harm me [Journal updated; 20XX August the 23rd] Many children have disappeared in the city of Ordoun and no one knows why. The sudden disappearence of the children have made a huge infect on the villagers. Many move away and now, only 48 remains, including two new families that have bought one huge field from a man who died recently. Reason of death; Old age. My name is Evelina Jordan, and I will be the one to solve this mystery once and for all. In a village born from the harvesting of food, from the huge fields. The warmer seasons around spring, summer and a little bit of autumn, a mist start to appear in the mornings and evening, making it hard to see. And we are there to take of the mask and reveal what lies beneath it. But it is very hard when the people deny themselves, about what's going on around the village. Only to protect themselves but even so, by going into their sacred homes, we will find more than necessary to solve this puzzle. Genres; Modern fantasy, detective/criminal investigation, In real life, mystery If more than one person is interested, then I can probably make this into a group roleplay. The village (Move your mouse to reveal the content) The village (open) The village (close) Name; Ordoun (Pronounced like Ordown) Country; England Province; (Unknown) Region; (unknown) Population; 48 Type; Cultural Coat of arms; Area; 24 hectares (Most covered with agriculture) Description; The village is known for it's long last life of agriculture and the hard working farmers. Not many outside Ordoun have visited this little village and the big families, all who is for the most related (except for two families who took over one farm) have tried their best into keeping the village alive. It is said to have been the most popular back in the middle ages, but faded quickly away when the bigger villages took over. The closest city lies 3 hours away with car and it is surrounded by forest and huge fields. The houses are old and made of stones, tree, hay. Still functional and ready to stay in place for atleast 100 years more. There have been no earthquakes but the village had had a heavy rain season, including 1 childs death. Ordoun is also known for being the 'Mist village', since you have to survive 5 months with the mist. The mist however, only show up in the mornings and evenings, making it clear for the day depending of the weather condition. When the village was of it's most shine, many children started to disappear. Making it the downfall for the Ordoun village. Now with only less than 48 people and children still disappearing, the reason is still unknown as to why children still vanish from thin air. The villagers are all NPC's IF you don't want to roleplay one of the 48. Otherwise you can use the villagers to your liking, making a conversation, a conflict or anything really. However, if you want to use one of the villagers, take it in mind that they are very cautious of strangers since the kidnapping of children have been very huge, they try to not get involved with that matter and can change the subject as you try to talk about it. They are friendly and mean well, even so they do not want to let strangers in their house if they don't have to. They are farmers and the fields are their everything to them, almost everyone is releated to each other in some way except for the 2 new families who moved into Ordoun. It's a small village so gossip gets around quickly, especially the bad ones. - - - Updated - - - Ordoun has a shop, but it's small. Otherwise the villagers have their animals and of course the huge fields to take advantage of. Make sure to take a lot of use of a NPC if I either write one or if you make one yourself. The two families who recently moved in have kids of their own and share one huge fields together which they bought from a man. Yet they have been somewhat accepted into the huge family of Ordoun... somewhat. There are those who still gossip and make bad comments about them and there will be more to come. The most popular person is the one owning the store since well... the person tends to get visiters a lot. I will for now say a person since it can as well be a she as a he.
