[Advanced Male Needed] Human/Ghost Romance and Mystery Roleplay?
Heya guys. Thrown up a new one for you. Let me know if you're interested.
After the death of his great-aunt, a young man inherits the last vestiges of his family's former grandeur; the crumbling, decaying Thornwith Castle. The castle has been neglected for many centuries, and the family has neither the funds to maintain it nor the heart to sell it. After the young man moves in, strange things begin happening; figures on the stairs, objects moving by themselves, and the laughter and and music of masquerade balls echoing through the now empty halls. The flashbacks and memories that the house keeps replaying seem to be connected to one Isabella de Riviera, a young girl who died under suspicious circumstances in the early 1300's. Isabella is the only ghost in the house who can communicate through the veil of death that separates the two time lines, and she is even able to hold a physical form for brief periods of time, but she does not remember anything about the manner in which she died, her memories blanking out hours before her untimely demise. With many figures implicated with the eligible young maiden; including the lustful King Tertian, whose desire for her bordered on obsession; the poor noble, Florian de Nessus, whose love was rejected by her family for fears he would not be able to support her; the Queen Consort, Iris, whose shaky position at court due to being unable to produce an heir was further threatened by Isabella; and the King's foremost advisor, Lucian Serinelli, who felt it his duty to avoid a royal scandal...at any cost; it is up to Isabella and her new companion to decipher the tangled webs of lies and deceit that led to Isabella's death. If her body is found, Isabella will be able to cross over into the next realm; but fate and love may have other ideas.
So, here's what this roleplay is going to entail.
- A large, extensive cast- In the 1300's, Thornwith Castle was the hub of the kingdom. To reflect this, there will be a lot of characters, both major and minor. There will need to be places for all the main suspects who interact with Isabella, but there will also be many smaller parts to play. I will definitely play more than one character. I expect you to help me and do the same.
- Flashbacks- There will be a lot of flashbacks. Most of them will be that the house has 'regressed' back into Isabella's time period, giving the male lead an insight into major events and defining points in Isabella's time line. Isabella and the male lead will still be able to interact, but within these points the focus will be mainly on what happened at that event. Flashbacks may also focus on defining points that other characters had, things that affected their decisions and attitudes towards Isabella. Any major point to do with a major character will probably be flashbacked, even if it is just small. It'll help develop the story.
- Mature themes- There probably will be sexual interaction. In fact, it's almost definite. Don't apply if you're not comfortable with that.
This roleplay will be a fully literate, novel style roleplay. Past tense, full sentences. Good English and grammar are a must, and creative flair is always encouraged. Given I don't always have as much time as I want to write, I'll probably provide two, perhaps three decent sized paragraphs per post. I expect you to at least match that, but I don't want to be waiting forever for a six paragraph post. I need at least two or three posts a week to not feel neglected. If you can provide more, I'll love you forever.
Honestly, even I don't know who killed Isabella yet, so that's something we'll need to discuss. I'm perfectly happy for your input, in fact, I'd love it. I can't think of everything.
Any questions? Reply, or PM me. I am perfectly happy to roleplay on this site, but if it's easier for you to email me posts then I have a RP email set up. Show a serious interest, and I'll provide it.
Hope to hear from you soon.
