What is a Man OOC
"Dracula. Does the name fill you with rage? Does it make you want to glad that such abominations have been removed from the world? Does it feel you with excitement, triggering a deep sexual and dark fantasy buried in the catacombs of your mind? Does it make you want to laugh, that such humans actually believe in such silly superstitions? Does it turn your pupils into dollar signs to think of the unforetold riches and wealth belonging to the King of the Damned? Hate. Lust. Sin. Arrogance. Greed. These things plague even the best of us mortals.
Castlevania, Manor to the Lord of the Undead, was said to appear once every hundred years, out in the black sea, near Romania, according to old legend. However its been over a thousand years since an incident or rumor of its appearance has gone around. A lot can happen in a thousand years. Old heroes die, leaving behind their spawn, who barely believe in the stories of a place they've never seen. Then they die, leaving behind their own spawn who believe it even less. Ultimately it gets erased from the history books of the common folk. Perhaps the curse of ignorance and carelessness is indeed worse than that of vampirism itself."
The basic plot is as follows. Dracula's home has risen again and several people are going to search for it. Each person is going to be there for their own reason. Within the castle are many dangers that will require the characters to form a temporary alliance until they find Dracula. The characters are as follows
1.A Vampire Hunter(Nate)
2.A human or two looking to become a vampire(ciera)
3.A Vampire looking to return to Draculas' side(Joel)
4.A treasure hunter(Amber)
5.A cultist trying to kill Dracula and take his powers(Derek)
6.A journalist looking to disprove the existence of Dracula as superstitious nonsense
If you have your own Idea of a character you would like with your own, let me know and ill consider it. Otherwise just call out which character you want and start working on a bio for them.
This is set in like an old london steampunkish time. Think cobblestone streets, horses and buggies, but with pistols and magic. The RP will start with somewhat of an intro post into your character hearing the rumor or preparing to leave to search for Castlevania. After that there will be a little bit of a time jump, where your character will find the castle through whatever means they can(most likely a boat). Once inside all the characters will eventually meet and so on and so forth.
This RP is also a bit of an experiment. While I would technically be GMing it, i don't want it too be that way. I want this to be more of an event. The story and characters will be pushed forward by us as a group. Feel free to take liberties to keep it interesting. When we finally make it far enough, i will be controlling Dracula. But here's where it gets interesting. Anybody will have the ability to use Dracula. If you have an Idea, perhaps a confrontation or interaction between your character and Dracula, send me a message with your idea and upon approval, you can post as him as well. I'm hoping this will make for some crazy plot twist or such.
So here's the Deal. I'm an old Rper... It was my childhood. However I haven't RPed since around 2008. I've grown up and do not have the time. I believe most of the (invited)people in this RP are in a similar situation. So this is going to be a once a week post requirement. We are all busy but I think we can all manage to throw out a post a week. To keep anyone from being left behind, there will no one is permitted to post more than twice a week(Unless all members have already posted that week) except for maybe dialogue only post and even then don't go crazy. If you fail to post within a weeks time I will contact you and see whats up. I will be as lenient as possible and try to find a acceptable outcome.
Open for anyone. I will allow multiple characters that are one of the six even though i'd like to have one of each. Just let me know.
What my guy looks like:http://http://asset-3.soup.io/asset/1263/4237_362f.jpeg
Name: Koresh Applewhite
Weapon: 13 barrel revolverhttp://1.bp.blogspot.com/_59GYpEVAu0..._pepperbox.jpg. sword cane with a silver bat inlaid on a ivory handle
Bio: From a family of weath and power he had anything money could buy and plenty of it to waste, until about 7 years ago he learned about the truths of the dracula and how he could harness the untapped power that he held. ever since then he has made it his mission in life to obtain this power, on his quest he started telling people about what he had learn and gain a following willing to die for his dreams of being a immortal GOD.
Name: Desmond Alexander Belmont
Appearance: Desmond is about 6'2 and a little over 200 pounds. He is a bit large and muscular. He has short black hair and a goatee. His skin is an untanned white from most of his hunting being done at night or in dark places where vampires lurk. All of his clothes are black along with his Trench coat which is the Signature for his Branch of the Belmont family. He wears a necklace with three vampire teeth on it, signifying the three vampire lords he's killed.His facial features are more rugged as result of his style of training.
History: The First thing anyone will notice about Desmond is that he's rather large for a vampire slayer, which are more typically slender and quick. This is due too his upbringing. His father died before he was born while hunting a powerful vampire lord. His mother, Unable to support herself, and scared for her safety, remarried before he was even two years old. The person she married was a barbarian of a man. Standing at over 6 and a half feet tall, He'd spent his enire life fighting wars. As a battle hardened brute he trained Desmond, the only way he knew how. Instead of being quick and agile like most slayers before him, Desmond is strong and powerful. As custom with most Slayers, Desmond made his own weapon, which is a Silver sword called "Nightsbane". Being forged of silver and quenched in holy water it serves him well against the undead.
Desmond never met his dad. The only thing he has left of him is his trench coat, which he himself retrieved from the castle where his father perished when he was seventeen. A year later he returned and after a grueling battle involving a lot of luck on his part, killed the vampire who took his fathers life. Along with the training from his step dad, Desmond has spent a lot of time studying slayer literature, which was passed down through the generations. This has given him a vast knowlege and understanding about the creatures of the night. Along with these studies, He has learned a few blessings. While not directly magic, Desmond can say quick prayers that result in varying affects.
Personality: Desmond's personality tends to range a lot depending on the situation. He is usually quiet and silent. However in combat or intense situations will become more talkative. He has very little patience, which sometimes makes him foolhardy. On one hand he is intolerable of vampires. and on the other understands their plight. He feels he does them a service by relinquishing their life, although he does take joy in it. He hates the disease of Vampirism more than that of an actual vampire. He does not have any sort of social life as he exist only to exterminate the undead and interactions just take away from that.
