Looking to tell fantastical stories [F/F, F/M, M/M]
« on: May 07, 2014, 10:41:38 PM »
Helloooooo everyone~! Kismet here. The semester’s winding down, and  it seems like I’ll actually have some stability for a loooooong while. And so, what does one do, when burdened with free time and a brimming muse? Roleplay, of course! But first, you must be wondering— the question must be burdening you! Who is Kismet?

I. WHO IS KISMET?
    — I’m a roleplayer who plays all genders, all sexualities, all pairings. I play male characters, female characters, and I play F/F, M/M and M/F. I have a few trans* characters and genderfluid characters up my sleeves too, so I’m also open to pairings with literally anybody.

    — I’ve no limits to any mature themes. Swearing, violence, gore, blood, sexual content: I’m fine with it all. I will respect any and all limits that you may have, though.

    — Currently, I can promise a post every day. However, I will admit that if for some reason, I’m posting slowly or not fast enough, the best thing you can do is add me on a messenger: Skype, AIM or GChat, and I promise you I will post faster. If you’re not someone who likes to be friends/stay in contact with with their RP partners, that’s fine! But my muses always run faster if I’m friendly with my RP partner, we get along, and like to exchange ideas.

    — The only requirement I have of my RP partner is the ability to tell a collaborate! As you’ll see in my ideas, some of them are fleshed out ideas, but a lot of them are plot snippets. I want you to help— RPing should be about telling a story together! I’m looking for creative partners who are willing to put their thinking caps on~

    — I PREFER to RP through EMAIL, however, I realize that not everyone likes to do so, and will RP through threads. You'll get brownie points (and faster posts, since I can RP during downtime at work via email) if you'd like to RP via email, though!

    — As a side note, if we were plotting something before and you're still interested in the RP, please let me know! I'm always open to ideas!

II. OKAY, YOU SEEM PRETTY CHILL. LET’S RP!
    — Below, you’ll find my ideas! As I’ve said before, a lot of them are plot snippets, and some are more fleshed out than others, but all of them are completely open to be changed and all of them are looking for your input! I’d really like to see how you’d like to add on to an idea, change it, tweak it, etc. I’m very open and flexible, so let’s give things a go!

    — Please PM me if you want to RP!  Also, when you PM me, I’d rather you say more than “Let’s do X idea!” Send me your ideas for the RP (it doesn’t have to be a lot. Something like, “Hey, I have a mage that would be fun to play with Bob. She’s feisty and domineering, which would be interesting to match against Bob’s shy, blithering nature.”) will catch my attention.

    — Also, even if you don’t see an idea here that you like (gasp!) if you have an RP idea that you’d like to swing by me, feel free to send me a PM anyway! I tend to like fantasy RPs - as long as it has some fantastical element, I'd be willing to try! Give me your all!

    — Lastly, I haven’t been on E for a while, so I’m vying for a clean slate here. Even if we RP’d before and something happened where it dropped or something, we could always try again!

III. RP IDEAS SMORGASBORD

i. OF NOBLE PURSUITS
O power plays and the games nobles play.


MAGIC DETHRONED.
“This is our sweet little secret.”
[M/M, M/F] In which I play a male (and a female character too, if you wish/like doubling up characters). You may play a character of any gender.

MAGIC DETHRONED.
In a kingdom where the use of magic, witchcraft and sorcery is banned, and all those who use it are sentenced to death or worse, a noble lord has perished, presumably of old age. This noble lord, known for making the deadliest rifles and guns in the land, leaves behind a son and a daughter. His son inherits his estate and his father’s secrets: in the dungeons of their castle, his father had employed many the mage, witch and sorcerer to construct his guns— their deadly secret is the mana that is embedded in their seams. No one is the wiser, and the son must carry the burden. His sister, forever a fan of a pretty drink with a sugared rim, and handy with a silver dagger, handles the shadier aspects of their father’s business— silencing those who may uncover their family’s secret. But how long can this stayed buried? When will someone find out?

Are you someone that finds out? Someone that helps keep the secret? Someone with ulterior motives? Let’s talk possibilities!


ASCEND TO OBLIVION.
“I’ve tried to be a lady, truly.”
[F/F, F/M] In which I play a female. You may play a character of any gender.

ASCEND TO OBLIVION
The lord and lady of a well-to-do province keep their youngest daughter cloistered from the rest of society. Most people think it is because of her stutter and her gripping shyness, but the real reason is far more severe. Their youngest daughter is half-demon — as the lady of the house was forcibly taken by a demon during a raid on their province. This daughter’s demonic side can take over at random, and she frequently has the urge to feed on souls and cause havoc and spill blood. Fed up, the lord decides to hire a specialist to see to the problem.

Covering as her speech therapist by morning, this hired professional has been tasked with either completely expelling or extracting the young noblewoman’s demonic side, but that is easier said than done. Perhaps this hired professional is someone who’s had to deal with demons before, or is an alchemist, an apothecary, something that labels him as a ‘professional.’ This is a scrapling of a plot and may need a bit more fleshing out with a partner, but it’s an idea that’s been buzzing around my head for a while.

ii. MAGICAL SCHOOLS
Scurry back to your dormitories, hush your twilight owls.


YOU LOST THE STARLIGHT IN YOUR EYES
“You misunderstand. I volunteered for this. I have no right to complain.”
[M/M, M/F] In which I play a male. You may play a character of any gender.

YOU LOST THE STARLIGHT IN YOUR EYES
In an esteemed mage’s academy, he’s a special addition to their ranks— a mage who has the ability to control astral power, the power of the stars. His kind is a rarity, beings thought not to exist, but he has been brought here to be studied, as well as play the part of student. You are drawn to him, at first by his ability, but then by something else, a feeling stronger than you can describe. But the professors’ curiosity about the astral mage’s abilities soon turn from curious to cunning, to crafty, until one wonders if their experiments are truly for benevolent purposes. The school is bright and vibrant, but with every light, there must be a shadow, and there are secrets this school is covering up that uglier than the catacombs within.

I’d absolutely love to go for an old-fashioned mage academy feeling here— where students wear robes, where magic experimentations are done, to have light-hearted fun as well as throw in dark themes in the mix. I’m thinking there will be school field trips to ancient magic sites, school festivals, galas and balls, but there will also be experimentations on my character as well, along with some other dark arts, if we can think of them. This is a plot I’d really want a creative, imaginative partner for— it’s a craving I’m dying to fill, but I’d need your help to make it great!

MIDNIGHT, BLACK EARTH
“I have no rivals. Only mana, and the black earth I’ve pulled it from.”
[M/M] In which I play a male. You may play a male character.

MIDNIGHT, BLACK EARTH
In an all-boys academy, where students who are adept with magic attend—nestled deep in the rolling countryside, where the next town is a train ride away— a student has struggled with his lust to learn more magic. He is an adept mage, the best in his class, and rivals even the teachers’ abilities. There are some who are afraid of his power, but why he takes his studies deathly serious is a mystery to all, even his peers. He has absolutely no rival… except for one teacher (* or student).

This teacher/student is the only one who challenges him, who pushes him to the next level, who goes the next step and even offers to teach him forbidden spells—because how can anyone truly be the best, if they don’t ascend to new heights? The rival only asks one thing of the student— no matter where you go, I must always follow, as your right hand. His strength only ostracizes him from his peers, until not even the school can contain his power.

You are someone to be feared, his rival tells him softly. The world of magic has a new king.

I’m interested in either playing out the student who seeks a rival, or the teacher/student who becomes his rival… For the rival-seeking student, I think it’d be interesting to see a slow change of him becoming an innocent, hard-working kid, to someone who seeks to be challenged, to someone who becomes an entity to be feared. The rival, in turn, becomes someone who is interested in his ambition, and wants to see how far he can rise— almost like it’s a game, to him.

Their relationship would be sort of snarky, filled with wit and sarcasm, but a slow accepting of one another, if not sometimes begrudgingly. What happens as they attempt to take the magical world by storm, amass followers, and become a ruler, is something we’ll work out as we go along— but I think it has a lot of potential!

iii. BOUND BY THE PACK
We are wolves. Our paws crush the earth. We sing the earthen song.

 THE DAGGERHOUND.
“You’re running on borrowed time. The drow will eat you alive.”
[M/M, M/F, F/F] In which I play a female or a male (the character can be any gender). You may play a character of any gender.

THE DAGGERHOUND
Someone who is more animal than man lurks these forests — they call him the ‘Daggerhound,’ for people have claimed they’ve seen someone who looks human running on all fours through the forest, with a dagger clenched in his teeth. The rumors scare even the most hardy adventurers and explorers from trekking through these woods, but one explorer decides that the forest may have hidden treasures or secrets hidden in its depths, and journeys out to it, despite the rumors. While travelling, the explorer realizes that it’s not the rumors of the Daggerhound that people should fear, but the drow — a vicious race that lurk the forests, coming up from their underground homes and slaughtering or imprisoning anyone who steps on their sacred land.

It is the Daggerhound who rescues you from a close encounter with the drow, and upon meeting him, you realize that he is not so scary — if not... primitive. He is able to communicate with you, however, and tells you that you are correct, that there is actually an ancient city buried deep in the wood’s depths. He has been protecting those who dare to travel in this forest for some time, and agrees to help you look for the ancient city. You may get your wish, and you may find what’s been cloistered, but the journey is dangerous and harrowing. The drow fill this forest, and they will not hesitate to punish you should they snatch you up in your depths. Can you trust the Daggerhound to keep your safe, when he’s naught but a wildman himself?

FOOTPRINTS
“The forests were all we had left.”
[M/M, M/F, F/F] In which I play a female or a male (my character can be any gender you wish). You may play a character of any gender.

FOOTPRINTS
The werewolves had lived in the forests on the outskirts of the sleepy town for millennia, but when a fire burnt down all they’d known and loved, they instantly who to blame. The mayor of the town, whose ancestors held a shaky, begrudging truce with the werewolves, has always sought an opportunity to strike back against the beasts. Now, without a place to call home, the werewolves have taken refuge in town. “This is only for a time,” the werewolf chieftain promises, but how long can beast and man stand to be in each other’s embrace?

iv. DEAD & BACK AGAIN
Death looked you in the eyes. You spat in his face. “Not today.”

 YOUR TIME OF DYING
“You’re not supposed to be here.”
[M/M, M/F, F/F] In which I play a female or a male (my character can be any gender you wish). You may play a character of any gender.

YOUR TIME OF DYING
They call him the Morning Star— a spirit that approaches you during your final moments in life, holding a lantern out to you, welcoming you to your death. The spirit has helped many dying souls find peace in their final moments, ushering them on to a life so much better than this one. But this time, there is a mistake.

You were never supposed to die. For what reason or another, your death was of the most unjust caliber. You have a destiny ahead of you that the world needs you to fulfill— for whatever reason, the world needs you to survive. Somebody wanted to see you go— someone wanted to stop you from taking in another breath, and maybe they would have succeeded, if not for the Morning Star.

You are trapped, in a dreamlike state, hovering between life and death. In the real world, you are in a coma, but in your mind, you struggle against death, despite the odds. The Morning Star is your only guide through your own psyche, and it is he who will help you find the way out— back to life, back to the world of the living.

This is a roleplay that I’d love for someone to use a character that they’ve always wanted to develop a bit more— we’d literally be exploring their psyche! I’ve left the terms vague so any character can be used— for whatever reason, they are important to the world, have a task they have to accomplish, and the Morning Star will help them face their fears and doubts, navigating them through a dreamscape. Even if they manage to get out of the dreamscape, it’d still be a great roleplay to continue from there— with the Morning Star helping them accomplish whatever goal they need to complete.

HAVOC IN HELL
“What do you have to lose? You’re already dead.”
[F/F, F/M] In which I play a female. You may play a character of any gender.

HAVOC IN HELL
You died, and now you’re in hell. You’re not really sure what you did to deserve this. You weren’t the best person, probably, but you certainly weren’t the worst. Or maybe you really were a scumbag— perhaps this is a fitting punishment for you. Or hell, maybe you really did go out of your way to live a good life. Whatever type of person you were doesn’t seem to matter. You’re dead, and you’re trapped in Hell.

Hell is not full of flames and lava— it is merely a dark, mountainous landscape, where the sun never shines, where light never peaks. It is here you meet a mysterious figure— a woman that other residents of hell call the Harbinger. She says that there is no such thing as Heaven, that everything you were ever told was a lie. There was never any hope for the salvation of human souls. The god, or gods, that lord over the human realm indiscriminately send all human souls to Hell.

She is mounting a resurgence, and wants you to join. Together, along with her band of misfits, she plans to take their fight to the gods, to bring hope to all of the human souls trapped in the pit of despair. She intends to kill the gods— and wants you to fight at her side.

v. ODDS, ENDS ‘N OUTCASTS

 STORMS BRING STRANGE LOYALTIES
“Just who the hell do you think you are?”
[M/M, M/F] In which I play a male. You may play a character of any gender.

STORMS BRING STRANGE LOYALTIES
Despite how short he is, despite how young he looks — eighteen, at the most — he’s a mercenary, hardened by the streets. For whatever reason, you have something he needs to complete a mission — either an item he needs, or information that’ll point him in the right direction— but you decide to be a pain, to not give him what he’s after. He is, after all, so young and so serious, but near adorable when teased; shouldn’t he lighten up a little?

You flip off the hood he’s wearing, and find that he’s sporting a pair of cat ears. His eyes widen, and he pulls the hood back over his cat ears, shaking his head. You can’t tell anyone, he pleads. This is a secret, you hear me? In a world where hybrids— people with animal-like traits— are seen as abominations, this secret is a matter of life or death.

I was hoping if someone wanted to use their knowledge of his cat ears as leverage to keep him around; as blackmail. I’d like for the character who he needs information from to decide to “keep him around” for whatever reason, maybe as his personal mercenary, doing odd jobs for him, or what have you, etc… But I’m open to suggestions!


POET OF THE ABATTOIR
“I could take you close enough to catch the stars, but far enough to escape their flare.”
[M/M, M/F] In which I play a male. You may play a character of any gender.

POET OF THE ABATTOIR
He is a poet, a philosopher, and a man well learned and read, but he only dreams in one color — ruby red. He is a murderer, a slaver, someone who takes pleasure in spilling crimson blood from veins. But one has to make a living, so on nights when the midnight sky is extinguished from stars, he takes men and women off the streets and sells them for profit — hell only knows what happens to the lot of them, or where they go. One night, he decides snatch someone up, as usual, and it is the usual song and dance, perhaps — but he has so much time before he has to turn this person in. Eventually, he gets to know this person, and something about them is... different. He has always believed that the world is so very black and white, that the only color he can rely on his ruby red, and that he is the only actor in this hell, cursed to coexist with ‘extras.’ But this person is different. And while he owes the slaver a body... he won’t let the slaver take this person away.

It’s up to you what kind of character you’d want to play for this — as long as it’s someone you think can entertain a beast, we should be in the clear.

Re: Looking to tell fantastical stories [F/F, F/M, M/M]

HI
Saw your post yesterday for fantastical stories.  I am a female and like to play F/F type of plays.  I have been playing for sometime, really dont have any off's except for no kids, animals (unless changelings) and bathroom stuff.   Violence, gore, etc is quite all right.  I can play different roles, evil, good, can be more sub or total domination.  I love hunt and hunted type of plays, enjoy violence in them and sex as part of the story line.  I also enjoy dark, moody, mystery type of plays, the fantasy, medieval side I particularly enjoy.   I write 3-4 paragraphs if I really get into the play,  enjoy an open style of play where creativity is allowed to run rampant, use expendable NPC very much to add depth and help move play along.  Since I have work and school,  writing nights and weekends is difficult for me, but answer one for one during week days.   One suggestion I have that might fit well with yours is:

An ancient organization that existed before time works in the back ground to control governments, police, hospitals, etc,  just about all aspect of peoples lives.  My suggestion would be my character's  father was an archeologist that during his research came across a common thread running through all civilizations that he managed, with the help of his own developed software program, was able to strip away the layers of secrecy that the organization had built to hide them and allowed him to just start seeing into the outer edges of the central core of who made up the central core before he was killed.   My character would be trying to unravel who killed her father and be unaware  that she is being hunted by an assassin on behalf of the "ancients" as they would think her father has given her his computer program and data and told  her about them, their plan and they wish to torture her to get the information out of her and then make her "disappear" along with anyone she comes into contact with.   The "ancients"  as her father found where here on earth before the beginning of time and have worked in the background to guide mans rise from the evolutionary pool to where they are today.   One thread would be that man is raised and developed by them like we do cattle today,  to feed off of their life forces which they have learned to strip the souls of men and women and that living energy sustains them and would want to protect that all cost for if humans found out, there are too many humans now to control.  or possibly, they are quite unhappy with the results and have a nefarious plan they have set in motion to wipe out mankind as it is known today and start over and this they will use whatever methods they need to protect that plan and carry it out.     Possibly can weave it into one of your thoughts?
