gainst the backdrop of modern day, there is a world of darkness that plays out behind a drawn curtain of magic and mysticism. This world, filled with the figures of human folklore and nightmares is all too real however, despite its hidden nature. Few in the world of men truly realize its existence, and even fewer still can count themselves as a part of it.
Those that do breach the veil are met with a reality that is surprisingly similar to that of the mortal realm. There is love and hate, virtue and crime, commerce, vice, and opportunity. Vampires, werewolves, ghouls, shades, and demons; all manner of horror, and all living in a world that mirrors our own.
This hidden world of the impossible is where the members of the Bain & Hoyle Investigation and Recovery Company make their living. This unusual amalgamation of individuals is renown throughout the Veiled World as top in their field; if it needs to be recovered, repossessed, found, or even spirited away, Bain & Hoyle is the company to call.
That is where you come in. As an agent of Bain & Hoyle, you and your team will be tasked with carrying out the impossible, the improbable, and even the fantastic. Do you have what it takes to brave this bizarre and magical occupation?
his RP is intended to be a somewhat lighthearted and team-oriented adventure set in a modern day world with a dark, and fanciful twist. The world itself will be loosely set so that the players can create it as the story progresses. Also, players will be free to choose from almost any range of character they would like to play as; from vampires to reanimated skeletons, the possibilities are only limited by the imagination. As far as the plot, details will be given if there is enough interest, but to give you an idea, think Hellboy meets Indiana Jones, meets Ocean's 11.
[x] Have fun.
[x] Play nice.
[x] Please remember that this is an Advanced level RP. Quality over quantity carries the day, so don't feel that you have to maintain a certain number of words just to fill space. Enjoy yourself, show interest in the plot, and everything else falls into place.
The Bain & Hoyle Investigation and Recovery Company was officially founded in London in 1597. Sir Archibald Bain, a prominent member of the English nobility, as well as a influential vampiric trader, along with his long-time friend, and werewolf, Reginald Hoyle, set out to provide unique services to the fantastic citizens of the Veiled World.
From recovery of stolen antiquities, to mystical protection, Bain and Hoyle soon gained a reputation for impeccable service. Through the centuries, the pair's company has grown to global proportions, and its renown along with it. Now, the company boasts branches on every continent, save Antarctica, as well as being an Occult Fortune 500 institution. With their success, the original Bain and Hoyle have long since retired, their days filled with playful manipulation of the human realm, as well as the occasional round of golf. Daily operations have fallen to the Board of Directors, and the individual Branch Executives.
You will be operating from the company's Boston Office. Located in Cambridge, just off of the Charles River, the office holds the title as being the third oldest branch of Bain & Hoyle, behind London and Calcutta. Though the office is capable of handling operations across the globe, the main focus of its agents is the eastern portion of both the United States and Canada, as well as the whole of the Gulf of Mexico. It also works closely with the head office in London for trans-Atlantic missions.
Gender: Male or Female
Age: Both apparent age, as well as actual age.
Creature Type: From human to Oni, and everything in between. Have fun with it!
Appearance: Picture, description, or both.
Skillset: A brief description of how this character is valuable to the Bain & Hoyle Company. Remember that your character will be a part of a team whose main purpose is the acquisition of items, artifacts, and information, for profit. Combat oriented abilities are fine, but just keep in mind that the story is more about adventure and profiteering, and not straight-up warfare.
Background: Here you can describe important aspects of your character, from their history with the Bain & Hoyle Company, to personality traits. Mainly, this section is for both you and the other players to get to know your character a little before we begin. Also, I strongly encourage collaboration between characters pre-RP. That makes it so damn fun.
