I am the No-body, and I'm here to tell you that you are dead. I rarely converse with lost souls in Limbo - after all, I'm just the middle man; a gate-keeper to whatever lies beyond this place - and let me tell you, it is not pretty. But yours was no ordinary death, so I have been specially requested to guide you through this place.
If you want to get out, you will have to pass through three portals - let me rephrase that : Three correct portals. Finding the portals will prove to be child's play, but getting through them will be a lot more difficult than you think. To get through, the red orb of light on your forehead will need to have the right amount of luminosity. Keep away from Sunlight, Hunters and souls with white orbs - they will decrease the luminosity of your orb and misguide you to the deepest layers of Limbo where escape will not be possible - without my help, that is.
The first portal is located in the Forest of the Dead. A boat will carry you across the lake to the forest. Although it will seem to be the case, you will not be alone. There are several other lost souls who have been stuck in the Forest since the beginning of time. The only way you can converse with them is through thought - in a place like this, the mind is as transparent as the body - so hiding anything from anyone will not benefit you. Just like you, each soul is identified by the color of the orb that resides on their forehead. From time to time, you may also encounter souls without an orb - these are the eternally damned, the ones who have decided to stay in the Forest and escape all the monstrosities of the higher mazes. Do not approach them, do not listen to them and do not talk to them - for they are known to steal orbs, and once an orb is stolen, the soul will cease to exist.
If you are afraid of venturing into the unknown alone, you may request the presence of another soul - a fair warning, however, is that nothing comes without a price tag attached to it. The souls that are willing to help you will more likely than not want something in return, so act wisely. I have never been inside the Forest, but from what I have gathered, it appears different to different people - even groups of people. Regardless of whatever it appears to be, one thing is for certain - it does not want you getting out.
Once you step into the Forest, all means of communication between both of us will be severed. But don't be disheartened, for I exist there as much as I exist here. The souls there know me by a different name - some of them call me God, I have always wondered why.
I will talk to you once you get through the first portal - if you do.
Chapter 1 : Forest Of The Dead
The voice that calls itself 'No-Body' disappears and leaves you on what looks like the bank of a river. In front of you lies a boat tied to a wooden stump with an iron chain. You may choose not to board it and wait for something to happen, or - you can choose to do the opposite and make something happen. To those who wish to enter the Forest, remember - right is left, and left is right.
Orb Color : (This will be your identity. Example, if your orb is red, then the rest of the souls will call you as 'Red', or something close to it, like 'Crimson'. Shades pertaining to a color are also permitted.)
Time of Death : (Just what it says.)
Cause of Death : (A brief paragraph describing how you died.)
Life prior to entering Limbo : -
Appearance : (No anime pictures, please.)
1. Standard RP rules.
2. I want a fairly detailed CS.
3. You character can die at any time, but will be notified before it happens - so be prepared. Be very, very prepared.
4. You can always come back as a different soul if your character dies - if you were accepted once, then the rest of your characters will be auto-accepted.
5. No more than two characters per player.
6. The first chapter will end once all the souls reach the correct portal.
7. Please, for the love of everything that lives and breathes, do not quit mid-way without informing.
8. Yes, this is a dark RP, but without fun, it is as good as nothing.
9. Put "This is just a dream" at the end of your CS if you've read the rules.

This RP sounds so awesome...
Orb Color: Emerald green
Time of Death: 15.4.2010
Cause of Death: After a trip to London with work for celebration of him being promoted, he got very drunk and stayed up until about 3o'clock in the morning and was stupid enough to drive home. Of course, he crashed, but he actually survived the crash. It was only when a lorry transporting an oil tank crashed into the wreck of his car and burst into flames that he saw a bright light flash before his eyes and he departed from earth...
Life prior to Limbo : -
Name: Derick Renbow
(If you know who that is and what program he is from then you get a cookie. )
Profession: Derick was an accountant at a very succesful insurance company.
Personality: Funny and charming, can be quite kind and loving but is aggressive and protective over his loved ones...
History: Derick was a bit of a ladies' man and had a lot of money and a big house. He worked at an insurance company as an accountant and would often try to sweet-talk the women who worked there.
Accepted. You forgot something that's written in rule no.9, though.
GAAAAH! I KNOW HIM, I just can't put my finger on it! It's three in the morning here, so my brain juices are pretty much dried up. I'd be forever grateful to you if you'd hand me that cookie.
*Cries in a corner*
Sorry. This is just a dream. I really can't be bothered editing my CS though...
About the guy. I will give you a hint. He is a knight from the tv series Merlin. Now you just have to get his name.
*Evil grin* I KNOW NAO! IT'S PERCIVAL!
He's such a bad-ass! And a handsome one at that.
Exactly!!! *Throws cookie towars you while you are stood on a small pillar surrounded by lava.* Hope you know how to catch!!!
*Tries to catch cookie, but survival instinct kicks in and lets the cookie bite the dust-er-lava instead.*
N-no more cookie...
*Gives Tom a castle made of cookies*
