Title: Come and Play With Us~~~.....
somewhat based on the Vocaloid song "Circle You, Circle You"
In the forest, you were always told as a child that there was an abandoned mansion at the heart of that very forest and that there was a kept secret in that same mansion. You doubted this story, but wanted to see the mansion at the very least. Several years later, you and a group of friends go off into the woods and find the mansion as how it was described in that story.
In an abandoned building forever in the shade,
at the end of the lifeless corridor,
is a room, inside which,
some forsaken children dwell.
At first, finding these lone children in the last room of the mansion was somewhat surprising. It was unclear if these children were here for a long time or not, but they didn't seem sad or depressed in a way.
We have been waiting forever
for your arrival!
We're so happy! We're so happy!
Let's play nicely, shall we?
Not wanting to upset these children, you and your friends promise to play with them. Yet, they might want to reconsider their promise as their "playdate" progresses.
Circle you, Circle you
just so you can't escape,
Circle you, Circle you
what game shall we play?
During the night, before daybreak,
we can become buddies!
Circle you, Circle you,
"Who stands behind you right now?"
Inside this child-like innocence, a game of fate will begin once you set foot into this mansion. Make sure you don't lose~.
Just to clarify for those who have not heard about the song this rp is based upon, it's basically a group of friends finding a bunch of orphan children at an abandoned mansion, and inside their innocence, something beyond death is with them. Any takers?[/QUOTE]
Title: Sweat (Modern Rebellion)
GM: Warden of War
So, I began thinking of this whilst watching the History channel. What if someone who shared the ideals of the infamous Hitler came to power? So, I wanted to make an rp about it to see
It is just a normal day in America; birds are singing, the wind is blowing, and the sound of artillery shells blasting into the ground echo throughout the states.
"This just in, America is under siege by Communist forces!" the broadcast begins playing on he news channel, mere moments before all channels are overwritten by President Dannel's Face, the backdrop being the Oval Office.
"My dear Americans; you fiercely loyal men and women of the red white and blue. As many of you may have heard, the foul forces of Communism have infiltrated our country; defiled our land. We are doing our best to twart them, but our best is not good enough. As much as it pains me to say this, our beautiful America is going to be overrun. I wish I could give consolation, but I cannot. The most I can do is tell you to not back down. Fight tooth and nail for your country. I don't have much more time, but Americans! Take up arms! Defend yourselves against--" a gunshot drowns out the President's last words, for last they were. As millions of shocked Americans watch, the elderly president's head seemingly explodes before his corpse slumps in the seat. More gunshots and shouts fill the audio, and suddenly, the face of a young Asian man fills the screen.
"Měiguů shž wǒmen de!" he says, before the screen goes black.
This will be a rebellion roleplay, where the last of the free Americans try to retake their lands. And, possibly, save the world while they're at it.
"When I was a little girl I used to imagine this place filled with lush trees and vibrant flowers, tall grass and skies filled with blue. It smelled like hot cider, the air tasted like cotton candy and my eyes were open to the world that I saw as true. Everything was good, it was peaceful and worries were none existent. I remember telling my mom about this place, she said I was just using too much of my imagination when I dreamed. But it was real to me, I could feel it...sense it. There were beings, kind and sweet, with wings like butterflies and skin of varying colors. They made all things possible in their world, and told me I could join them one day. But as I got older I lost sight of that world and began to focus on my reality. High school was the wonderful time of boys, clothes and accessories. I guess I really lost sight of what I truly loved and began to lust after things that weren't important. God I wish I could go back...how I miss it so. The land of the fairies is where I wish to go, but sadly I have no idea how to get there..."
So the rundown is that you'll create a character, unique and simple. Oh yeah I forgot to add the second part of the little story.
"I had a dream the other night, I was in complete darkness and a red door stood in front of me. I was afraid to open it, see what was hiding on the other side. As I stepped to turn the nob the world around me began to become clear, the darkness fading away. The door broke away and I was back in the world I have left, the land of the fairies. I couldn't help but smile, to be back in the world that I had visited as a child was more elating than receiving a certificate from graduating college. But something was happening, I could feel it. My smile left me instantly, and the sky above began filled with blood, the sun looked like the moon and it gave no light. The grass, the flowers, the trees were all dead, the lakes were bloody and putrid. I was hyperventilating, I wanted to escape. The world I had left was now different, more disgusting than I could have imagined. A voice spoke out to me, I recognized it. The fairy that I had trusted when I had first encountered this world was right behind me. I turned around to see her, glistening like the sun was inside her heart. She smiled softly, a reassurance things would be okay. But her glow began to vanish, her skin becoming grew, noticeable veins and her soft eyes became filled with darkness and she had teeth to match the ferocious appearance she now had taken on. She looked at me like she didn't even know me...her screams filled the air, it cracked the sky and was powerful enough for me to retreat. I turned around to run but I was halted, to see more creatures like her. They were death on wings, filled with darkness and pain. Their hands were ready to grab me, nails ready to enter my body and teeth prepared to gnaw at the very bones within me. I closed my eyes tight, trying to get back home...and luckily I did. But now my dreams seem to be blending in with the world I have now...I don't even know when I'm truly awake...sometimes I don't even know what door will open to another side...and it's getting stronger."So this RP will be a Survival Horror/Fantasy Action/Real life kind of thing. It'll take place in three worlds. Reality. Fairy World. Dark Fae World.
The real world and dark fairy world seem to blend in together. You end up in new places that you usually know are something else. Surroundings change, environments feel and act differently to you but no one else. The more isolated you become the deeper into the Dark Fae World you go, and thus trapping you into that darkness. The Fairy World is a place where you go when you sleep and sometimes accidentally ending up when in Dark Fae World.
Why is all this happening? Well that's what you are going to find out eventually. You seem to have a connection to the world that is drawing you in. Your connection is unknown to yourself but others(other players) seem to know more about you then yourself. You'll travel between all worlds to figure out what the fuck is happening. As you travel you begin to realize more things about yourself that might bend your own reality of who you have become in all the years of your life.
Reality: This is the world you've known for all your life, it's almost like it hasn't changed in the slightest. Everyone starts in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Fairy World: This is the place where fairies run abundantly. The world is beautiful, lush and is pretty much how your imagination would conceive a world with magical creatures. You'll add onto it, because it's also what your imagination can create. It's extremely open however most of the fairy world has been transformed by the darkness.
Dark Faeland: This is the bastardization of what humility and love is. This world has become a garden of complete and utter death and destruction. Anything in a psychotics mind is in this place, and remnants of reality and Dark Faeland have fused together, thus creating a haven for the monsters that lie inside...waiting for beings of light to enter.
The creatures will consist of many magical beings described in the fae world, however since you'll be dealing mostly in the Dark Faeland you'll be up against there...darker inner selves. They are filled with hatred and spew death, they want the light inside of any creature and they will take it out anyway possible.
All things will be updated in the OOC if this jumps off. I'll go into more detail there, but I just want to see if this peeks interest.
Featured Role Plays
Title: Humans VS Magic Users
This is an rp centered around war. There are 2 sides 1 side is the human side the other being that of a magus sort of class. Humans invaded the Magic Users lands and now they are trying to push them out. Each side is trying to wipe out the other so they can leave in 'peace'.
The humans have some forms of technology guns, poisons, cloning, gene splicing (meaning that although humans cannot control magic doesn't mean they don't have abilities), and others that may be added. (no lasers or heavy vehicles though sorry)
The Magic-Users have of coarse their magic. (for now keeping it to only 1 element) Elemental include fire, water, ice, wind, earth, lightning, dark, light (and other elements that you can think of that i might of missed...)
Title: Naruto RPG: Rise of the New Generation
The Sage of Six Paths was alive and ruled over all of the nations as one single entity whilst maintaining a seemingly everlasting peace amongst them. On the Sageís one hundredth birthday the Sage passed away, creating the moon in the sky and sealing the body of the Juubi within it. The Sage was the first Jinchuuriki of the Juubi. Before dying the Sage split the Juubiís chakra into nine Bijuu which he divided and sealed amongst the land in hopes to hide their power from the world due to his mistrust in mankind.
After the Sage passed, his six students were left to rule the continent. Five of the students became the Kage of the Five Great Nations and the last student was left to be the Shogun of the Land of Iron. The Sage also had two sons, the elder of which being an ancestor of the Uchiha Clan and the other being an ancestor of the Senju Clan. These eight individuals proved to be ninja of such a high caliber they could alter the landscapes during their battles. In the history of Shinobi they are regarded as the fathers and mothers of modern Ninjutsu. After passing down their teachings to the next generation, these ninja passed away and left the world to itself. They kept the peace and stability to the best of their ability, yet they could not hold it together after they passed away.
Over the years, each village slowly grew distant from the others and became involved within itself. New Kage took power and over time the values and teachings of the sage were lost. The peace shattered and soon fighting began. The First Shinobi World War began during the time when the Second Kage each lead their villages. During this time the land was divided up into countries and each border was drawn up. Militaries began to stockpile and grow. There were no clear winners of the war, only losers. Every country lost men in the war with the result ultimately being nothing more than a stalemate in which all sides signed an agreement to cease military action against one another. At the end of the war the Five great Nations were left with much tension which has rolled over onto the young, growing generation.
Title: Silver Leaf Chronicles: War Beckons
"The tides of war is upon you young knights and sorcerers, but fear not for I have found the path to heaven and to the gods themselves. So hold this world alight with your raging fires and know that I shall return, triumphant."
-Last words of the Mad King Illonizes
It has been thousands of years since the Mad Kind descended into an ancient tomb of the old world, never to be seen again. His words still live however as a curse, shattering the once glorious empires of old into squabbling, petty states and kingdoms. It twisted races to try and eradicate one another. It drove the elves to split, creating the Luni that became blinded by their own light, the Mandi who began worshiping death in hopes of rebirth, and the wild elves, forever hateful of the cities and their ways.
His curse caused the serene Tindras, a mighty people of the sands, to forsake their god and loose their immortality. It cursed them with fleeting and shortening lives. It made the Dwarves lose themselves to greed and gave the humans a unquenchable thirst for power.
Worst was the fate of the Shadowborne. Their own darkness became a curse, their kind mistaken for demons and hell-fiends. Their status as scholars tainted by false rumors of necromancy and vile experimenting.
Uliar, the world of strife and endless war lies on the brink of a new disaster, just as it began to truly recover for the first time. It's the old tombs uncovered in the north that whispers of a second coming, the birth of a new Mad King. This is the story about those that would play a part in this new crisis and how they helped shaped the world.
