Welcome To The Last Day Of Your Life...
It calls out to you...this mysterious mansion. Perhaps, you have seen it in your dreams, or went there to seek shelter, or perhaps it was a dare from friends, your reason does not matter how you got here. All you know, is that you are now here, and you are now stuck. You may or may not be alone, it varies on your own situation. Having allies does not make the situation any less frightening...and deadly.
Once inside the manor, you might curiously explore...but, the second you decide to turn back? The door closes. It's locked, sealed by a sense of "magic", although, everyone's experience varies. It might rain outside, or you might hear pure silence, you might see ghosts, feel the impending sense of doom, hear a piano, hear a shattered noise, cries, clawing, it might start raining, mist might mysteriously appear outside the window, it is entirely random from the second you step in the mansion. Fast forward, you run into a mysterious black cat, maybe you decide to ignore it...or follow it. The decision is entirely yours...the decision is always yours.
Will you make the wrong decision? Will you die? Will you fall prey to the house, or be swallowed by your own darkness? Will you get forever stuck, will you escape? Will you find love or friendship in your fellow companions, or will you find yourself ripping each other's throats out? Will you use your wishes wisely? Will you solve the mystery behind the house, and the little girl who haunts it? Will you find the one who is behind it all? There's only one way to find out...
...step into the darkness...
About The House
Little is known about the house at first, however, you can easily find out more about it, if you do a little investigation, if you are observant, or if you befriend the mysterious black cat that you can follow. There are a few things you should know about this house, though. For one, the experience alters from person to person. For example, one person in your group may be plagued by a certain demon that no one else but them can see. You might not be able to see ghosts, or see them. Some of you might see terrifying pentagrams, or chocolate bunnies depending on your character's personality/thoughts/attitude/age. Another thing, this world has different time compared to the real world. A few hours here can mean months in the real world, but no one is really sure...no one has ever escaped.
The house, you'll find out quickly, has a frightening and dark atmosphere. This can cause people to lose sanity, lose track of what they were doing, or "get lost in their own darkness". You might just wander aimlessly for an eternity and never notice. Illusions are quite common as well, and so are nightmares, so be wary about how you act. You will begin to forget things about your life in the real world as you wander, in the beginning, you will most likely forget how or why you are there. Scavenging in the house is permitted, although you'll find a large amount of cob webs, dust, and moss more than anything. There is hundreds of different rooms in the manor (you, the Roleplayers, can decide all the rooms), an armory included...but, who says our enemies are mortal?
Visions, ghosts visiting you, and illusions are extremely common in the house, they can either tell you about yourself or about the manor, depending on who you are.
Lastly, the most important rule of the house for you to know for now...is that you get a set of wishes. There is no set number behind the wishes you get, it is entirely random for everyone. You may have hundreds, or only a few, but once you make a wish: there is no going back. Wishes act as your lifeline in the manor...well, aside from your actual, you know, life. If you use all of your wishes, your time is running out and you will either disappear, die, well, it varies so it can be practically anything! You cannot wish your way out of the house, or anything of the sort, because in order for a wish to work, it has to be bound to the manor...and you must want it to work.
Well, that should about cover it about this killer manor, except for the threats...you know, your "enemies".
...don't trip in the shadows...
Oh yes, and this is manor is filled with them! You can create your own to go with your characters own personal storyline, and you may also suggest some, here are some of creatures you will find in the manor:
Baron: A blood red ghost with a cloak, very stoic and frightening. It is mentioned if you see Baron's face, you will enter a series of nightmares, in which it will be impossible to break out of. Baron has a blood red butcher's knife, but is blind, so Baron can only find you if you are loud enough for him to hear you...or if you sabotage others for Baron to find.
Karl: Another blood red ghost, who is known for a sadistic and cruel attitude. Screams like a banshee, making your ears practically bleed, and the noise usually rings in your head, sometimes causing mild causes of insanity. Karl has hooks for hands, and tends to play with his prey for a while, and usually has his eye locked on one target at a time, and usually haunts that target for a while.
This mysterious cat can either be seen as a threat or an ally, depending on the decisions you make and how quickly you can solve the puzzles to escape your death. This cat seems to have knowledge of the house, too bad he can't speak...yet. This cat can either lead you to your death or your escape, and seems very skittish, but friendly. He'll purr if you pet him, and lead you to certain rooms in the house if you offer him a "treat", if you make him an ally, that is.
A girl who has no senses, she appears to be dead. Her appearance is very traumatizing, and has no eyes or legs, and is hellbent on killing you...or maybe she is trying to speak to you?
A demon and friend of Elise, Midas is the incarnation of Greed. It's impossible to run into King Midas until one reaches further into the mansion, where they will meet both King Midas and Lady Elise. King Midas might have the key to escaping the house...or your death.
A mysterious girl who inhabits the mansion, she is friends with Midas. A lot of visions, investigation, and ghost visitations will lead back to Lady Elise. She speaks little, and dislikes people, and appears quite young, but possessed. She might know about the manor...or not.
How This RP Will Work
This is a pretty deep RP, which involves a lot with overcoming fears, finding your inner self, and greed. Wishes are your way of survival, and your desires are what matter in this manor, which is the incarnation of greed. The more twisted your character is, the better, trust me. I won't require biography for this RP, because I think it will be fun to discover your character as you do, because your character will slowly lose memories over time, depending on who you play as/how you play.
There is no one way to play this RP. You can win or lose, and there is no specific path you need to take. This is an entirely choice based RP, you can make any choice you want! You have the freedom to anything you want, there is no specific set storyline, and there is more than one answer/way to escape, depending on what your character wants. You have the freedom to be any character you want, any age, personality, attitude, background, etc. There is really no limits, and there is no limit on how many characters you can be.
You can introduce any villains you want, run them by me real quick, but otherwise, you can do what you want. You can be some sort of special medium or whatever, just don't be shooting magic the entire time [black magic is sort of allowed, though]. Weapons, cursing, all that good stuff is allowed. You can die and introduce new characters any time.
You can interact with the enemies or kill them. You can fall in love with others, and you can make friends, or stick as a loner. You can enter the manor with animals like a dog, you can enter with other people! There is really no limits to what you can do in this RP, so, go forth and have fun!
Er, I haven't decided if I'm joining yet, but I hope you know that the first picture you posted in the opening post isn't working.
Also, wishes without limitation? How does this RP even function then? Can't I just say something like "I wish for omnipotence," then do whatever I want? Being restricted to the mansion isn't a problem if I can get even one wish like that.
