Enchanted Woods, OOC
Welcome to the OOC of Enchanted Woods, I hope you will enjoy yourself here!
What is Enchanted woods, you ask? Well, it's a small group rp that can be best summarised with this premise:
Deep into the kingdom of Belvernia stands a cursed forest once known as the holy Lunastei Forest, now cursed into a life of eternity and misery after it's source of magical power, the Spring of Life, became corrupted by the bitter tears of a woman abandoned at the altar by a holy man. Those tears, their essence concentrated by sorrow and hatred, mixed with the holy water and transformed the whole spring into a pool of desolation and formed a curse where all the now wretched water touched would be condemned to an eternal life of damnation. After two centuries, the trees and grounds of the forest, gone mad after such a treatment, curled into themselves, making it impossible to escape the cursed woods until the curse was lifted. The animals themselves changing into terrible monsters, the woman who instigated it all herself turning into a wicked witch.
Since then many poor travellers lost themselves in the wood, turning slowly into the terrible Fey themselves. Not all is lost, however, for some trace of innocence and purity remains in these woods in the form of children who became lost or abandoned in Lunastei's Forest. You are yourself a new 'resident' of the forest, and must find those now warped children if you ever want to evade your now nearly inevitable fate and restore the once serene forest to it's former glory. The journey will be long, however, and your mind and body will likely suffer greatly, but please, for all the souls trapped inside this cursed ground, persevere!
Now, you may wonder about the gameplay and what you can and cannot do now, and I will gladly answer you!
This game is played by exploring the undying woods and performing quest or even solving puzzles toward freeing the forest of it's curse, searching for what you were even here for an/or even accumulation enough power to get to the top of the cursed woods' hierarchy and get information or even freedom that way, though the later means you will spread the curse with you. With each successful endeavour you complete you get a number of one to three Fey Point (FP), used to change your character either physically or mentally to better face the trial he or she is faced with. You are a normal human at first, so no strange powers allowed at the start!
Also, you may note that this is a fairytale setting, where every living thing is capable of communicating with each other, so talk to everything if you want, they may even answer you!
Now comes the rules, they are pretty simple ones, I think.
Respect the TOS and the Casual Standards at all time!
Be polite to each other in OOC, no drama in this thread!
Use Spellcheck and be careful of your grammar.
Don't make the NPCs talk on your own or give yourself quests or challenge, it's my only job and I like it :)!
Now that that's done, here is the CS:
And that's it! Fill this up and post it below. If I say it'S accepted and the IC is up you can post whenever :)!
Name:Jayne Ann Simmons
Personality:Jayne is very outgoing, has a slight anger issues if things don't go her way. Jayne is generally a happy person most of the time and will stand up for others if they in some sort of trouble however she will consider if it is worth risking her life for that particular person.
Prior History: Jayne was brought up in a great household with her mother and her father however her father sadly passed away when she turned 13. Her mother finally found someone new when Jayn was around 15, she didn't like the guy one bit and the guy didn't like her also.

Greatest Fear: Spiders and clowns
Beside the fact that clowns don't exist in this world you're set :).
Name: Mamoru Yakuma
History: Since the beginning of the Shadow Clan they have always secluded themselves from other races. For some,it was because of their feeling of superiority over them. For others, it was due to their fear of being persecuted due to myths about evil deeds the clan had committed in the past. However,the true reason that the Shadow race hid themselves from others....was due to a lack of trust. The Shadow Clan refused to trust anyone outside of their own race. To them,the only friends and family one needs are cousins,family members,and others from their own kind. Even going so far as to have arraigned marriages to keep their clan self-reliant. However,despite their attempts to remain isolated from the rest of the world,both monster and human alike, nothing can stop change from occurring. With each passing century,the future generation's curiosity about the people and world around them would grow. Still,none would dare to go against the races traditions....except for a brave few.
Marcus had never been satisfied with his current place in the world. Forever hiding in the dark,watching the world move on while his people were stuck in the past. He was tired of reading about the world,he wanted to see it and experience it for himself. The other people in his village considered him to be a trouble maker,a dreamer,but most of all.....a bad influence on the other children. It had gotten so bad that they had expelled him from going to his town's school. While his family loved and supported his ideas and beliefs...they weren't willing to follow in his dream. It was around this time that the came in and offered him an escape from his world of black and white. However, the only way to do that, was to become the leader of the clan. He wanted to offer another choice in life, not only for himself, but for everyone in the village ! Taking one last look at his home town,Mamoru begins his long journey to the Enchanted Forest with all his hopes and dreams on the line.
Personality: He's always been the type with an insatiable hunger for knowledge. To always want to know why things are the way they are. Although sometimes his inquisitive nature has lead him into trouble on more than one occasion. Still,despite what kind of trouble he gets in,once he decides on something he won't stop until he completes his goal. Although...sometimes the methods he'd use aren't exactly what could be called...legal. Unlike the people from his town...or clan even,Mamoru tries to give people the benefit of a doubt and causes him to be a little bit over trusting. If he had a choice Mamoru would rather be betrayed then close himself off from the world. To him,to be alone and forgotten for the rest of his life is one of the things that scares him the most. He feels the best way to save himself from that fate is to go againts the rules and restrictions that time and tradition have placed on him. Although he doesn't like getting people angry or even getting into fights,he'll only fight when it's the only way to achieve his goals or protect the things important to him.
Habits and quirks: He easily gets distracted by something new or something his never seen before. He also has a bad habit of stuttering when he gets nervous. Can usually be found with a book in his hand.
Likes: Enjoys looking at the stars at night,reading books and learning about other cultures,likes to try new things,and watching fireworks.
Dislikes: Hates being compared to the other people in his village,people who believe the myth and rumors about his clan,dislike people who complain about something without trying to change it.
Sorry, Prof, but they are supposed to start as normal humans.
So if I remove the shadow abilities we're good ?
Hi, I noticed in the IC you mentioned a cap of four participants. Just curious if you've reached your quota.
Okay :) thank you
