~War in Wonderland~ [Interest Check!]
« on: October 26, 2013, 06:42:14 PM »
What happens when two worlds collide? You find yourself waking up in a strange place. A world that you never thought to be real. It has to be a dream, right? Nothing is real, it’s all a figment of your vivid imagination, yes?

Four individuals are about to embark on a journey that will test them in ways they never imagined. When four unlikely people are thrust into a the mysterious world of Wonderland, they must figure out not only how to find a way back home, but how to survive long enough to make it there. This isn’t your mom and dad’s Wonderland.

The Red Queen looks to take Wonderland for herself, though the White Queen seems to have the same idea. They have found their way into the mythic world, bringing with them their vast and loyal armies. But what happened to the Queen of Hearts? Come to think of it… where’s Alice in all of this?

All questions and more will be answered as the story moves along. The four would-be adventurers must ban together to unravel the mysteries of what has happened in Wonderland. With the fate of the world and its inhabitants hanging in the balance, every second wasted is a second that the two Queendoms are tearing Wonderland apart. There will be magic, major battles, bloodshed, tragedy, love, betrayal, and much more.

The four unlucky souls have been brought to Wonderland through rabbit holes, and they weren’t brought willingly. Every one of them was stolen away in the night, abducted and transported to the magical world. When they awaken they will find themselves in unfamiliar surroundings. How far would you go to save Wonderland?


Welcome to Wonderland, where not everything is what it seems.



GM Note: This one is important so please read.

I am looking to make this game a smaller one. There will only be four people total (three and myself) so we can keep this story moving along at a good pace. Every character will be flawed and different. They won’t be ‘heroes’ and ‘saviors’ right from the start. Each one of them will have a unique gift that surfaces once they are in Wonderland, which is why they are specifically chosen to begin with. Please do not make your character some ‘perfect god or goddess’ type. Each character will grow into a person of greatness within Wonderland. Whether that be a hero or a villain of some kind.

Various characters in Wonderland will look to shape and mold the four for their own selfish reasons. Both Queens will want them captured dead or alive (to start with) as they are foreigners and clearly stand out from the usual inhabitants of Wonderland.

So when you are creating your character, PLEASE create them with flaws and make them more realistic. Wonderland will bring out the best (and worst) in them but they will also have the chance to rise to greatness and realize their true potential. As for the ‘unique gift’ that each individual possesses, I am not going to limit what your imagination can come up with, just make it somewhere along the lines of magical. For example, my character will grow to become a skilled fighter and swordsman.

As of now This is the roster for the game.

1.   Bennett Grayson (My character)
2.   Dakota Sanderson (Caela)
3.   Johnathan Davis (Twisted iN Tux)
4.   Annalise Ambera (ladia2287)


I did this to make the gender ratio even. Another important thing to note is that NONE of these characters will know each other whatsoever in the beginning. They will all be dumped in the same area together, but will not know each other prior to being brought to Wonderland.

I have put up a request for a female character for Bennett’s love interest. I do love a good romance story :P There will be elements of romance and love so that’s why I did that. As for the other male and female characters, they can have a romantic interest in each other or not, that is not up to me.

If you are interested, please know that you must stay dedicated to this game. I don’t want people dropping out after the first week. So only those serious about sticking with the story should reply as interested please. I promise you this story is going to be incredible. ;D

What time period do these four people come from? Modern? Do they already know what Wonder Land is or will they be totally lost once they get there?

I was thinking of it being a more modern time period.

The way I see it, most of them wouldn't recognize it right away. The story is so popular however, they would realize fairly quickly that they were in Wonderland.

Yep yep...what sort of ages were you thinking of these characters?

Do you have a CS format you prefer, or should we just freehand it?

I was thinking on the younger-ish side (not too young of course) I was thinking 17-22 age range.

I hadn't thought of a CS format yet. I was going to wait for someone to post up one and then probably go off of that.

WIP
Name: Dakota Sanderson
Age: 18
Height: 5'4
Weight: 127lbs

Personality: Dakota is brash and impetuous, often acting without thinking things through but always with the best of intentions. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body, but that doesn't mean that her impulisivity doesn't get her, or others, in trouble at times. When the best laid plans go awry she is always apologetic and tries to make amends. Behind the impetuousness however is a bright mind, a kind heart, and a nature that is loyal to those she cares for.

Background: Dakota had a rather benign childhood. Her parents both worked to provide an slightly upper middle-class upbringing. They had a nice house that had aged into a cozy home and she got most of the things she wanted, though her parents often made her work to earn them in order to teach her the value of working for what you want. Her grades in school had been excellent and instead of a job, her parents had encouraged her to volunteer with an eye on her University applications. She only missed graduating as Valedictorian by 0.02 percentage points.

Unfortunately, she also graduated with no real ideas about what she wanted to do and, much to her parents chagrin chose to defer University for a year in order to spend time up at their vacation house by the lake where they often found her writing or painting fantastical landscapes based on the simpler views of the lake and mountains around her.

Off to a great start! I'll post mine up here in a bit.

WIP
Name: Bennett Grayson
Age: 20
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 205 lbs

Personality: Bennett means well and usually has the best intentions in mind. Though he always seems to have the worst luck. The guy can be a bit clumsy, often tripping over his own two feet. He isn’t without a little confidence though. When he believes in something he will go for it head on. Ben is stubborn and has to be reminded sometimes that it’s ok to not have all the answers in life. He is incredibly loyal to friends and will selflessly put the needs of others in front of his own. Generally outspoken, he has no problems facing the truth though he is less likely to overreact if he can rationalize something.

History: Hailing from England, Ben grew up as an only child to parents who showered him with items versus love. His parents were both quite successful in their own respective career fields which left Ben to basically raise himself without the constant watchful eye of a mother and father. While they did love him, the simply didn’t take into account how a child would change the dynamic of their small family. With successful parents, Ben was pushed into all types of activities from sports to extracurricular academics.

He tried for several years to follow a path in football though as soon as he was ready to head off to college, he decided to drop the sport altogether and focus on trying to find his way through higher education. He was well-liked for the most part. He was looked at as the sweet guy who tried his best to stand out. Once he went off to college, things started to change for him. He found an interest in various activities but still found himself lost in his own life. He is still searching for his purpose.

Attention, ladies and gentleman. May I present the lovely...

Annalise Ambera
Name: Annalise Ambera
Age: 18
Height: 5'1
Weight: Please forgive my lack of knowledge of the American weight measuring system. If no one objects, I am putting her weight as 87kg

Personality: Annalise is largely introverted and quiet, generally preferring the company of books, or sewing, or other solitary pursuits to that of her friends. She can appear a little selfish and spoilt at times and will persist if she thinks she can get her way, but in general is loyal and caring to those she cares about.

Background: Annalise is the youngest out of three daughters of the widowed Lord Thomas Ambera of Middleton. She has spent a lifetime being sent to the finest schools, wearing the finest clothes and socialising with the creme de la creme of High Society. For her eighteenth birthday, her father presented her with a very special gift; a locket in the shape of a book. She wears it always but has never shown anyone the black and white photograph of her mother that is inside.

Jonathan Davis
« Reply #18 on: October 29, 2013, 09:54:05 AM »
Jonathan Davis
Name: Jonathan Davis
Age: 19
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 180 lbs

Personality: Friendly, honest, sweet, and wholesome, these are all excellent words to describe Jonathan, that is, if you don't know the true monster that lurks behind the All-American mask he wears. Quick with a kind word or a noble gesture, Jon was fast to learn at an early age that he had the ability to easily manipulate people with his charming smile and winning personality. A thief and liar at heart, the young man rarely thinks twice before skillfully stabbing someone he "loves" in the back.     

Background: Born into a large, Catholic family, Jon would be the last in a line of ten boys. The youngest and, therefore, the proverbial "baby of the family," he was treated as such for many years, coddled and spoiled well into his early teens. However, once he reached high school, the kid gloves came off and his parents insisted that he learn to walk on his own two feet. Thankfully, Jon had the smarts - as well as, to his parents chagrin, the immediate support of his brothers - to get him through this seemingly rough transition.

His twin siblings, Jake and Ed, two years his senior, helped him the most. Throughout Jon's freshman and sophomore years, the three were inseparable, but then the twins went off to college, leaving their baby brother to his own devices. Little did anyone know, by this time, Jon had managed to perfect his deceptive disposition.

Playing up the role of the perfect son and student, Jon used this persona to his advantage. No one would ever suspect him of stealing from his classmates - which he did often - or lying to his teachers - which he flawlessly achieved without batting a lash - or cheating on his tests - which garnered him top honors. By the end of his senior year, he had managed to weasel his way not only into the position of valedictorian, but that of class president, star quarterback, and prom king.

Believing himself to be an unstoppable force, Jon couldn't wait to sink his teeth into those he would meet upon entering the Ivy League school of his choice. However, fate clearly had a different plan for the young man, one that involved being whisked away to the strange and mysterious world of Wonderland.
