Fall From Light (Fantasy Survival/ Monster Game)
« on: May 08, 2012, 07:22:50 PM »
The premise of this roleplay is the reverse of one of my previous roleplays, wherein the creatures of fantasy were hunted down mercilessly, the people of good and bad (human and non-human alike) would have to flee a city besieged by an army of horrors. I want to start with three or four survivors and maybe two or three monsters, (Template below) the survivors, (Women preferably, but female monsters would open up an entirely new realm of possibilities, doesn't matter), will have to flee from safe point to save point (different threads), being picked up by the monsters and dealt with, leaving it up to the other survivors to either leave the member, or save them (If left, the number of posts is sorta left to the monster, but you can decide whether or not you want to keep your character or create a new one.). A multitude of characters would be used, the monsters need to be unique, I don't just want three tentacle monsters, maybe a ravening swarm of small monsters, maybe a gigantic daemon, or a hellhound, (tentacle monsters are cool, just not en mass. I'm going to write the first paragraph and give an idea as to the sort of Armageddon will be happening.

                    Sitting at the base of a towering mountain, a city for all goodly folk shines brightly, clean white rock making up towering spires and flying buttresses. A bustling market in the height of growing season is the centerpiece of the large city, a place where every race is there to buy or sell goods of their craft, Orcish hides, Dwarvish smithing, Elven art and human agriculture. The people in the square were as diverse as one could imagine, but in a single moment, all eyes turned skyward. The sun was being blotted out, a sudden solar eclipse was upon them, followed by great fissures opening in the ground, gouts of flame hundreds of feet high flaring out. A rumble could be heard, and the mountain seemed to crumble, a great torrent of rock beginning to slide and tumble towards the city. Then, the monsters came. From the seas came great serpents and writhing masses of tentacles, from the earth sprung forth demon hounds and hellish lords and the skies rained fire and blood, winged devils bringing terror and death. The world went mad then, rivers of blood to come.

So the survivors would start out in the city and escape via a tunnel in the mountains, running from sanctuary to sanctuary. The demons would of course, pluck the survivors from the locations, prompting the gauntlet run to the next safe-zone and they would have their way with the captured survivor until rescue or the decision to create a new character happens.

Templates:

Survivor

Name:

Gender: (Female until special circumstance.)


Bio/History: (Who they are, what they did, how they survived)

Appearance: (Picture or Paragraph)

This is the first time I have done a roleplay like this in particular, and I hope you take interest in the idea.

I'm interested. Does it matter if I'm either a monster or a survivor?

Question. Is this going to be like a survival/horror game with a sprinkling of smut, or is it going to be more like smut with some survival/horror aspects?

Either way, I'd be interested in playing a monster.

To be honest, since i'm not planning on playing myself, I was going to leave the actual content of the roleplay to the players. For example, I have an addition to that template there that adds things like their "Class" and their particular abilities and weapons. I didn't pull that out immediately because I didn't know whether or not people wanted smut or an actual horror/survival rp, because I am fine with gming either, but if I wasn't playing, the latter seems to be more fun.

I guess I'm the first interested escapee player then.  I'm just settling on a picture.

I'd be interesting in playing one of the girl who's trying to run away if this idea is still open.

I'd also be interested in playing a survivor as well, I figured I should get a go ahead before coming up with the character though. :)

I was pretty sure that this thread was murdered, but if you want to try to revive interest, I certainly won't object.

Sorry, I didn't think a week was too long for something since I've seen interest threads be silent for longer then suddenly come back and begin in the past.

No guys, I'm thrilled that there is still interest, If you want to make a character, make one.

My big question is, one you asked before, but I don't think it was answered. Is the game going to be more smut or survival horror focused? I ask because I have an idea for both, but knowing which ahead of time is important.

I'd be interested in playing a survivor as well if this game is still going.

I thought I answered it I thought, but either way, I would cater it to what the majority wants, so I might run a poll, but at the moment it is smutty.

Well here's my current character submission then. Does this sound good?

Name: Samantha Estevan
Gender: Female
Bio/History: The daughter of a minor merchant Sam had lived a live of relative luxury for most of her years. Her father had provided her with whatever she asked so long as it was within his means. What she chose to learn was horse riding and how to survive in the wilderness. Though her excursions were always with some sort of escort she eventually learned her way around the surrounding landscape.

It was thanks to these skills that she was able to survive. Without any real combat training, she'd only learned how to use a staff properly by her teacher's insistence, Jessica stayed to the shadows and managed to evade capture so far.

That's a good start, if this thing manages to revive itself after all this time, I will be amazed.

What sort of character sheet would you want to see for a monster?

From what I have seen, the likes/dislikes of the roleplayers volunteering are pretty okay with extreme (I guess this kind of thing attracts that) so I would make it as unique as you can, with tentacles or hounds or humanoid but different, what I really want to see are extremely unique demons, I don't want to see your cookie cutter eight feet tall humanoid stuff.

Is there still room for survivors? I'd like to try this out if there's still room for another :>

Ideally, I want three or four survivors and two monsters, mind you these monsters have to be unique as all hell. Submit as soon or as late as you want, I'll call it when I think i've reached the limit of my GMing Capabilities. Again, looking at the ons and offs, everybody is okay or into extreme stuff, how do you guys feel about that?

Name: Crystal
Gender: Female

Bio/History: (Who they are, what they did, how they survived)
Crystal was an apprentice hunter, working for her father, before Armageddon  They were well known enough, providing a range of hides and meat to the markets and tanneries.  She was a quiet, introverted person even at seventeen years of age, and had never liked the hustle and bustle of the city.  She loved nature, and spent entire days just watching the animals live their lives.  She hunted by necessity, and was sure to use every bit of the animal, and honour its death. 

She was in the city selling a load of hides when it happened, and only survived through a combination of her skill with the bow and dagger, and her willingness to run like hell.
