The Faeland (OOC) [Survival Horror/Action Fantasy]
^^Play to enter the Fae^^
My little message to you...The Fae world has live alongside our world for thousands of years, interacting with us and changing us as it sees fit. Fairies are magical creatures, blessed with the uncanny ability to be filled with love and hope, more than any normal human being could even understand. But what brings fairies to our world? There have been many myths about them, but no one truly knows the sordid past of these tumultuous creatures. Lately the Fae world is calling upon the children of the Earth, urging them to come into the Fae, but for what reason? I wish it was that easy to answer, but to be totally honest, the story canít be predicted. I've tried my hardest to figure out what they wanted from me and the others, but now I'm stuck in this limbo of wandering wonder. I can't do this all on my own...when I was a child this world I had encountered was beautiful, almost perfect. The dreams of a little girl flying with the fairies and swimming with the mermaids is common and even cute...but when I returned ten years later...I had found this world wasn't like it used to be. And it was tasked to me to understand what the world had brought. But I failed them...and now here I am lost in this world, never to escape. Hopefully the next few to enter here can fight the darkness and reclaim the light stolen from them, before turning insane by the forgotten memories of old. I give you this word of advice my children.
Never forget who you are...it will save your life.
The world has been seen through the eyes of many, it is all so concrete that anything beyond that is utter madness. But there are a few who are able to see beyond the veil that shields their eyes. The light within them allows for the sight of otherside, the realm which their minds have locked away. You are one of those individuals, who lives in two realms. One you know well and the other you can understand. The Fae realm is calling you, pulling your soul into this fantasy world that you can't begin to understand and it needs your help. The darkness is plaguing the Fae realm, creating monstrous creatures that have an intent on killing everything that has light within them. You...are trapped in phasing worlds. You enter a room and end up in another world, fall into a swimming pool and end up in a mystical well. Can you survive the horror that is held within this realm? And more importantly, can you figure out why you're connected to it?
The FaeLand is an RP focusing on mystery, horror/survival and a little action. It revolves around individuals who have been dreaming about a fairy world and also have been having trouble differentiating fantasy from reality.
Characters are faced with survival aspects and also self exploration. You create your history but is your history true? This is where the mystery comes in and you'll be faced with revelations that will make you question your future decisions. This is relatively a sandbox RP, but there are plot points that will challenge your survival skills and knack to uncover information. You will be dealing with three worlds, worlds that transition at random points. You will be blessed with weapons and you will be blessed with one magical power.
The first world is Reality. This will take place in Renmarc. You'll live your daily life normally, intermixing with the cast or going off and doing your own sub-plot. And yes you can create your own story within this world. It'll actually help me figure out what to do with you. Reality is what it is. Concrete, nothing magical nor special. You'll be a student, professional or whatever you want. You can collaborate and already know the other players of this RP or be a complete virgin to any knowledge of them. This world will be your playground, you can create locale and add to things I've already implemented.
The next world will be Dark Faeland. This is the place that fuses with your world. You are the only one that seems to witness and experience this unnatural change. It'll happen slowly or extremely quickly. One blink can send you into a dark forest or walking through your house can create this new surrounding of a dank world you know can't be real. Most of Dark Faeland is usually a the distorted Fairy World realm, everything that was once beautiful is turned into a disgusting, sadistic representation. Memories of Reality also show up in this realm, such as landmarks, streets, houses etc. There are key locations I've created but you will also be able to create this world as well. Dark Faeland is home to the darkness, it's much like Siren, Silent Hill, L4D and Slender Man in atmosphere and gameplay. You are completely vulnerable to death by the creatures that inhabit this world. You will be forced to hide and run in order to stay alive. Weapons will be scarce, most things are either rusted and unsuable. If in Reality you were holding a some kind of weapon, you will bring it with you to this realm. Giving you an upperhand, however you'll never know when I will make a transition. You will only be able to use your power one per transition, so make it count. And the magical weapon you assign yourself will only be available when you have a boss battle. You can die during a boss battle, but working as a team should make it cake. But remember...you don't have to be cordial to everyone. There are phases in the Dark Faeland that'll make it more of a challenge...that's explained in the world section.
The last world will be the Fairy World. This place is small in retrospect due to the corruption by the darkness. This world will be the hub and much like a saferoom. You'll gain more knowledge about yourself, others and information you want to know. You won't hang in this world a lot. This place doesn't have the capacity to hold so much light like it used to. The Fairy World you'll be able to practice using your abilities and weapons here. With each mention of your powers in your post it'll become more powerful. Which means you'll have to essentially have to use it in order to make yourself a badass. You have to start with a spark to get a flame. The more bosses you defeat, the more of the Fairy World will be revealed to you, as well as your connection with it.
The WORLD (Year 2015)
The world you know, the world that you have lived the most amount of time in since birth to your age now. Itís concrete, void of spirituality and magic. Reality is Earth, a place that is not known to have natural magical energy or fantastic realms within it. You are located in a fictitious town/city called Renmarc, which is located on the east coast. Itís been around for 500 years, small but bustling. Itís much like Minneapolis, MN. Diverse, seasonal and rich with cultures from various countries. Renmarc is mostly filled with people of Irish/Dutch descent, but it has slowly become multicultural allowing many parts of the city to be mini countries. Downtown is filled with Little China, Mini-Tokyo, Sub-Russia. Uptown has Frenchtown, Italy Square and Kenyan grove. Downtown is a haven for the younger adults who want to dance, experience life as a mature individual. Uptown is more chill, hipsterish and very fancy. Usually the rich residences live in this vicinity. The city lies within the middle of all of Renmarc while the suburbs encircle it. Wilderness is scarce in Renmarc unless you travel further out, a few hours and itís completely forest. Renmarc is open to your imagination as well, so you can create it too. Most of your time will hardly be spent hereÖso donít get too attached.
Renmarc is a very peaceful town, combining old structures with new ideas.
Fairy world is pretty much what all little girls imagine it to be. Glitter, bright colors, winged creatures, sweet thoughts and magical fairy dust. Fairy World is beautiful, the skies are always blue and the sun is brightly lit. Nature runs abundant, the trees are alive, the flowers speak, and the sweetest creatures live in this realm. Music was always played and games were the best festivities. The Fairy Queen lives high in the tower of the palace of fairies. Magical energy runs abundant in this place, almost everything has magical energy which is vital for life to live in Glaenia. But the darkness came, and corrupted all of Glaenia, and took all the creatures inside with it. With the magic being slowly absorbed and the darkness spreading the balance is becoming unstable. The only untouched place was the Fountain of Undine.
ē Fountain of Undine- This is the hub where the characters will go in the Fairy World. Itís safe from the darkness, the reason why is unknown. The fountain lies in the very center of the floating landmass. Itís filled with the most vibrant water ever seen by human eyes.
ē Fairy Palace- The dwelling place of all the fairies of every type. Itís large, has many doors and is usually filled with laughter, trees, flowers and mirrors. ITís very natural in appearance, ivy on the walls and the lack of true structure make it quite stunning. As the darkness now fights to control the kingdom the palace gets more and more frightening.
Dark Faeland/ Crixis:
This used to be a part of Glaenia. It once was beautiful, filled with life, color and mystery. But the darkness overtook it, mutating it into a world unrecognizable by the last remaining inhabitants. Crixis is a world filled with infection. The sky is much like the color of a sunset, without a moon or sun in place. But overtime the darkness comes, and with every passing hour the sky becomes darker and darker, only creating a world filled with unknown entities, after that you need a flash light or some form of light to see. The surrounding environment is dirty, black, water is either murky and sludge like, sometimes blood spills from the earth. The trees are dead, grass is dying and gray. Everything that once was beautiful has become twisted. And not only that, but this world blends in with your memories of locations youíve been, creating a familiar but mysterious world to you. This world is filled with creatures that cannot be returned to their world. You will create this world as well but there is direction from me as well. You will be extremely vulnerable...because these creatures are more magical than you are. You will only have the weapons you come in with or the weapons I give you.
Fairy Lords Palace
Grandmother Tilda'Wyan Manor
ē Rising- The sky has itís sunset hue and the creatures of the darkness are scarce. This is usually the time you want to do exploration and character development. Itís relatively safe.
ē Depth- The Sky has reached a dingy gray hue, clouds are swirling closer together. This is a time to get to some location and hide out. Hopefully a transition happens to stop you from getting too deep in. Usually trolls and brownies appear.
ē Darkness- The darkness has come, the freaks come out. Itís best to stay quiet and avoid noise at all possible. You are only able to see with some kind of Illumination.
Transitions are when the worlds begin to fuse, separate and everything in between. There will be times when I make notice a transition is occurring, and Iíll let you know which world weíre going to. Transitions can save your life sometimes and possibly even put you in danger. There are three transitions. Reality to DarkFaeland, Reality to Fairy World, Darkfaeland to Fairy World. Now while in Dark faeland there are three phases, (RisingÖDepthÖDarkness). The lower the phases the more dangerous it is. So for example, Rising will have very little creatures to deal with while Darkness has a vast amount. Iíll explain them in the world description.
This world was once inhabited by a multitude of creatures. Mainly fairies ruled this world, but other Fae things lived among the land. But once the darkness set in it took most of the worldís living beings and turned them into horrific violations of nature, cracking the very hearts of light within each of them and turning them into fiends, deadly demons. Most of these creatures are deadly, some are relatively harmless until the darkness takes over which sends most of these creatures into a frenzy.
DarkFae- These are the darker sides of the Fairies that were mutated by the darkness. They are the size of an average human. Their skin is usually pale, veiny, eyes swirling in black muck. They have long finger nails, mouths that can open extremely wide and suck the life right from the body. Their wings are usually broken and dried out. They usually are runners; they move pretty fast and can climb walls like gravity is no issue. These fairies usually separate from one another, so you encounter them one at a time. If you see many in one placeÖrun.
Banshee- The banshee used to be the musical fairies, having voices of pure gold and much like an electronic synthesizer with an opera like tone. But that darkness turned their tunes into exotic poison. The sounds are beautiful at firstÖbut once they get close enough it turns into a screech, able to deter the senses. They are able to glide on the air, they are known to wear ragged white dresses, covered in dirt and sometimes blood.
Elven- These used to be Elves, the fairest, smartest and most wise creatures in the whole kingdom, but the darkness took and them and created a vicious defilement. They usually bend their bodies in weird ways and crack bones in their bodies to intimidate their victims. They climb walls, move incredibly quick. They have white skin and silver hair; their hands were removed and replaced by large blades. Their teeth are jagged, ready to penetrate skin. Usually they run in packs of three. One is always stronger than the others.
Trolls/Goblins- The darkness accepted them, but didnít infect them. They are the nasty souled creatures. They are probably the sanest in all of the land at the moment. They lie and trick in order to get what they want. They usually have very strong arms, wield heavy blunt objects and smash things like they belong in the mental institution. They are the only creatures that can actually communicate through some kind of spoken language. Trolls roll in deep, always have backup and they carry horns that signal for more reinforcements. Giants have also been group with them, but there hasn't been a giant in hundreds of years.
Brownies- These small creatures resemble small elves but look a lot more like little hairless gremlins on wings that are the size of your hand. They are usually aggressive, have large teeth, able to bite through skin easily, chomp away like they were at old country buffet. Since they are small and have wings they are very bothersome and extremely dangerous. Hiding is the best thing to do because killing them is hard when youíre dealing with a swarm.
Kobolds- They usually hang around the water, awaiting their next prey. They used to be cute reptilian like creatures. Now they look like dying dragons, puss sores, decrepit and yearning for flesh. They essentially look like crocodiles except more humanoid and a lot more ferocious than I make it sound. They are able to render themselves invisible and are able to swim swiftly.
Custom Enemies- They are creatures that have spawned from the minds of the light bearers. You can PM about a creature you would like to implement. You'll actually control this creature and use it to attack yourself and or others. No one is safe. I'll add it to the list if it fits within the realm.
**** Fae: Magical creatures of legend, usually dating back thousands of years in various forms. It's also a compilation of the magical world put into one directory. Fairies: Winged humanoid creatures, usually extremely beautiful and invincible. They usually wear loose clothing, have vibrant butterfly like wings with intense patterns, very hypnotic. They have magical fairy powers and fairy dust that can do a serious amount of damage if placed in the wrong hands. Light Bearer: Beings that are naturally born of goodness. Even the most mischievious of individuals can be Light Bearers. Humans are all LB, even the evil ones. The light inside them keep them alive and give them the power to fight the darkness. But a lot of light can blind a man, sending him to complete darkness. Darkness: The darkness is unknown to the fairies. Only the Fae Queen knows about why the darkness has come. The darkness is usually seen as an infection, distributing a black ooze substance into the earth or living being and alters their outside look and taking away all natural will. The darkness is able to absorb magic and most importantly internal light. Power: It's the collective power found in every being of light. They are able to produce one of the many spiritual elements in all of the Fae world. However since the darkness appeared, it took many of the elementals...creating ferocious beast that can only be beaten with another elemental. Sylph, Salamander, Undine, Gnome. Witch: Are usually female fairies who have allowed their darker persona's to take over, creating a much more unbalanced fairy. Usually witches are cast out of the FAE and put into the human world to avoid more destruction.

Selphie is one of the last fairies to survive the darkness corruption. Being one of the youngest fairies out of everyone in this realm she is indeed immature but nonetheless insightful. Selphie was a court fairy to the Queen. She assisted in the making of festivities, played pranks on other creatures and was to help the Queen find a suitable male mate to impregnate her. However the darkness came and swept all the fairies into a spree of destruction. Selphie witnessed the darkness corrupt the hearts of the family she knew. The ones that resisted the darkness were either killed or flew away to the human realm. But Selphie stayed, and she decided to travel to the one place that could keep her safe, the Fountain of Undine. Selphie found out she was infected and in order to save herself she had to rip her wings off, to stop the darkness from spreading. Selphie knew that in order for her to find any kind of hope she would have break the seal of Alsiiey. And with that this is what brought the humans to her world.
Selphie is witty, emotional and overall very strong as a person. When faced with danger she acts as if she is the only one that can stop it. Bravery is no problem for her and making decisions that are difficult to some, come quite easy to her. Like most fairies she is loving, maternal and a natural codex. Selphie is the one that will assist you in your journey, to fight the darkness. Hopefully she can do just as good a job as the wiser fairies in this land.

Name: Stefani Age: 24 Brief History:If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. Stefani has never had a firm grasp on reality or others. She was an imaginative and creative child who made up words, spent whole hours talking to herself, and imagined whole nonsense-filled worlds the way children do. The thing is, she never stopped. Stefani can't remember how long she's been in the hospital's 14th floor. The floor filled with crazies. She's been here longer than a minute, but less than a significant passage time. Stefani isn't crazy, not in the traditional sense. She's extremely sensitive to the ripples of the Fae world that intermingle with the real one and has been branded as disturbed by conventional wisdom. The crazy thing is, being told you're crazy enough times by supposed experts has a long standing effect on impressionable young girls. She grew up believing in the Fae world more than her own, but has come to question both the worlds and can't seem to prove she exists to herself. And contrary wise, what it is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see? Mystical Weapon: A unique wristwatch that is always too fast or too slow, depending on the time of day. Only during special situations it can manipulate the ebb and flow of time over a small Area of Effect, usually between Stefani and whatever danger she's facing. The effect is random and can't be controlled by her. Power: (To Be Announced In Game) Past History: Stefani was born to careless parents who were young and in love. So in love with each other. It's a sat truth in families, but people can and do love others to varying degrees. Everyone is loved. But some are loved more equally than others.
But Stefani wasn't looking for her father or her mother's caress. She had her sister Beth. Older by two years, but as soon as Stefani could walk and talk she had Beth following her around as they made unintentional daily trips into the Fae world. To them it was a game, and they carelessly shaped and manipulated their own private playground at their leisure. However, as Beth grew she started to become more rooted in reality. She refused Stefani's invitations to her misadventures and tried to root her sister in the here and now.
The idea alone of staying rooted in Renmarc was scary and the world's colors were so dull...but Beth held Stefani's hand through it all, and that made it not so bad. Her sister took Stefani's world and expanded it infinitely by introducing her to the real world at the age of 14. She helped Stefani make friends, forge relationships, and get in touch with people. Even though Beth had completely forgotten the Fae world, it refused to forget Stefani and tugged at the edges of reality constantly. A flash of light, a snicker from nowhere, a tree that bloomed leaves that colors of the rainbows. They distracted and pulled at Stefani. But Beth held her hand and Stefani stayed in Renmarc.
Which made it much harder when, one morning, she found her sister dead in her bed. The sheets were stained scarlet, and her wrists were split open. The stranger who was her mother ran up the stairs and saw Stefani crying hysterically over her sister's corpse.
Everything slips from then on.
Stefani barely remembers the months that crept on by, or when her parents decided to intern her at an 'alternative' hospital operating out of a refurnished hotel.
She was too busy slipping into the twisted horror that had become of her childhood escape.

Hey, sorry for taking so long. And for it being 'eh.' I'm probably going to twist the words a little but I felt like I needed to have something up 22 hours after saying I was working on a CS! Lol.
I'm just putting it out there right now since it might be an issue, I'm totally cool with changing Mystical Weapon if it wasn't what you had in mind.
The way I saw it working, if it is acceptable, was just using an online dice rolling system to keep me honest.
@Shine, Definitely no problem on getting the CS done. You could have taken your time , but the character looks great and the information given is perfect. Now the weapon, although I had more of a conventional weapon idea, I like the concept of it so it's accepted greatly! And I already have an idea of what I'm going to do with Stefani
@RocketFox Awesome, can't wait to see it. I wish you would have done the layout for my RP, you are amazing at your craft! ^_^

A L E X A N D E R MC G E E R D twenty-eight [x] male [x] graduate student
it was always you that i despised[•]A beautiful lie : this was everything Alexander was, and then wasn't, he was [and is] a human being of superficial habits, skittering across the surface of everything and never wanting to delve into deep. Perhaps it was a fear of the knowledge within that thwarted his person from inquiring further, maybe it was past bourne events that made him skittish in the revelations that threatened to peel open his heart and soul. He was [is] a massive contradiction, glancing towards the wilds, seeing the Fae flit to and fro across the brush, calling his name, inviting him to their realm of bright, saturated ecstasy and desires. He'd never concede under their siren-laced whispers, he was an adult with adult ways and habits and ignorance. He'd stop believing because he's had to grow up fast, quick, be responsible. No longer could he linger through the vegetation or waters of swirling sunlight and taste the citrus of the sun. He'd allow himself to forget all and become blinded to their tantalizing gestures. Alexander stopped believing so long, he let the memories fade into myths locked away into his subconscious in favour of his harsh reality ; he'd love real mortals, instead of Fae lovers, he'd dance with a woman rather than a glittering siren. Alexander was a guardian shedding his light, letting it dim and flicker, allowing himself to be warped into a typical man of the world with secrets that lurk, deep and dark, within his superficial self.
really don't deserve it[•]Given from the breast of a Siren : a sword of shining light, humming with the faint wisp of song. The length and caliber of the design is influenced by Alexander's belief into himself and the world, including others. If his faith is to dwindle into ignorant bliss, the weapon becomes no better than a wooden shaft ; dull and useless.
of me, my dearest mother[•] x x x
if i had died i would have never felt sad at all[•]An only child, doomed [it would seem] from the start of his life. Left to the affections of a smothering mother and a harsh father with a flawed perception of his family : a mere trinket to wear around town. Of Dutch descent and with traces of Irish stubbornness woven into his genetic pool : Alexander was a boy in the posh up-town of the Renmarc. His Dreams were the only thing he could allow himself to get lost in, chasing after hypnotic wings, lying in fields of candied roses and lilies and whispering his secrets to the clouds which formed into dancing fae that kissed his brow and nipped at his skin. A Prince of the mortal world, bourne to the King and his wilting Queen, a faery tale of classic and old proportions that was dashed with a little bliss and dark humours. Alexander would sleep, just to dream, and escape the world, he'd wonder off into the trees, call for his friends and let the Sirens sing to him ; call him a good boy, a handsome boy, their wonderful, little prince.
He grew up too soon though, he had forsaken his dreams and his wishes because the King was dying and the Queen, well, she needed someone to hold onto. Was it healthy, for the little boy [now a man] to love his mother so? Was it wrong, for the woman to cling to him and weep and beg for the death to be gone from her life? Alexander didn't know that he was being used, and soon, he'd come not to care. But there were moments, in his supposed sleep, where he'd be wrapped in bliss and pleasure and see the Sirens calling to him, brushing their fingers against his brow. The Fae continued to try and bring the boy back home, they'd sing to him on the breeze as he continued on living his mortal life that was dull and brooding. Alex grew up though, he ignored them still, he'd walk on home with his chin tucked into his coat and he'd breeze right on past the swirling Fae whom basked in the sun. Until finally, he saw them no more, and instead he'd meet a girl so pretty and yet lost. She murmured of a darkness to come, of a death to be had, and he'd be lost along with her. Alexander didn't know who she was, or if she even existed, but he could not ignore the lost and forlorn frown upon her features.
Alexander is running still, but he doesn't know where. All he knows, is that he can't stop, and that he'll cut a path through the world[s] and free himself from himself.
