When the lights go out and all is quiet, the manor truly comes to life. Boards creak, windows shake, and the inhabitants wonder if it's simply the old bones of the aged mansion, or something more sinister. With a host of guests to watch over, there's no time to ponder the strange noises. When the first body appears, the once unexplained noises now tell another tale. A tale of murder and wonder. None will escape, not until the killer is found, or all have been lost to his will. Will you survive? Hello, esteemed guest! We are the respective personal Maid and Butler to our honorable Lord. Our names are unimportant, what is important, dear sir or madam, is you. You have been selected among the vast pool of applicants for further screening in participating in a dinner with or esteemed Lord Taylor Upton. The purpose is of course to determine who will inherit his fortune. Money is a powerful motivation, and we would only ask that the best be introduced to each other in order to select one fortunate heir or heiress among you. While Lord Upton is unable to greet you personally, please take the time to complete the survey below, so we can further be acquainted. As of late, his health has been on the decline. We cannot express how important it is for your utmost and speedy cooperation before his inevitable, and deeply sorrowful, death. The Lord does not have much time left, and he has expressed his need to so generously donate his estate to one lucky individual. Once the survey has been completed, please deliver it to the Manor address supplied on the invitation. We will let you know if you will be among the lucky few to join us for a weekend of splendor. Name: Name Age: Age Height: Height Description: (either an image or description is acceptable) Personality: Personality Occupation: Occupation History: History What reason do I have to doubt you?: (AKA why are you the murderer?) What reason do I have to trust you?: (AKA why wouldn't you be the murderer?) We appreciate your prompt reply, and ever look forward to having you as our guest for the evening. Every player must create two characters. Be able to post at minimum once every week. Post on time, if you are absent too long it is grounds for dismissal. One liners are not allowed. Grammar must be at an appropriate level, with few or no spelling mistakes in a post. If mistakes are found, you are expected to fix them. Do not take control of another player's characters. Discussing the identity of the killer outside of the thread is prohibited. This is meant to keep them a mystery as long as possible. That being said, if you are selected to be the killer, do not tell anyone. You are allowed to discuss character aspects and alliances in an OOC thread, but please refrain from discussing the plot anywhere else. Again, this is meant to help keep things a mystery. Once all the characters have been approved for the roleplay, I will select a killer anonymously. Consult with the GM ( @Lillian Gray ) if you have further questions.
