PURGATORY'S PROMISE - UNAVALIABLE
He is the demon lord, investigating a bitter crime.
MEDIEVAL FANTASY, DARK FANTASY, MYSTERY, ADVENTURE • A young demon lord’s master passes away in a mysterious fire, one that ravaged the forests outside of his sprawling manor, but did not touch his home, or the many inhabitants inside. The demon’s lord master had many friends and enemies— all whom he let live in his strange, otherworldly manor, which seemed to have an infinite number of rooms, passages and secret entranceways. In the master’s will, he leaves the manor to the young demon lord, and suddenly, he realizes that his enemies must be kept closer to him than his friends, lest he suffer the same fate at his master.
There is only one person he dares to trust, and that is you— but who are you? Are you an enemy, disguised as a friend? Are you a longtime comrade, hoping to help the young lord navigate this new treacherous life in the manor? Do you know who killed the master, and are holding this information over his head? Or, perhaps— are you the killer yourself?
My hopes for this roleplay— let us navigate these cryptic halls together. Let’s think Victorian for this manor; think masquerade balls, passive aggressive tea parties, lazy days playing croquet in the manor gardens while trying to suss out which amongst the demons set fire to the master’s fire and killed the master outright. I’m hoping for this to play out as a murder mystery, where your character and I must watch our backs and keep an eye open for deceit ‘round every turn.
THE MAN WITH THE DAGGER
He is the poet, the philosopher, who dances with a bitter blade.
KIDNAPPING, DARK FANTASY • 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, a rapist, 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. And while he owes the slaver a body... he won’t let the slaver take this person away.
I want this to eventually be non or dub-con, and eventually grow into something more— romantic, a twisted addiction to this person, what have you. 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.
ALL IS VIOLENT, ALL IS BRIGHT - TAKEN
He is the demon, tormented by an Almighty.
DARK FANTASY • As demons go, this one is one of the most discordian, one of the most chaotic— one of the most unpredictable. In a world where demons dwell in darkness, sitting in lofty manors when they are not preying upon innocent humans, this demon is not privileged to live such a peaceful life. Millennia ago, he made a pact with an Almighty spirit to survive, and ever since, it has been devouring his soul, bit by bit.
To save his soul and sanity, he knows what he must do. He must first kidnap a human, then take him to the Gala— a gathering of demons, where secrets are spilled and spells are exchanged. Perhaps one of these spells or secrets can answer his prayers. The human he must steal is naught more than an object to him— but perhaps the partnership will prove to be more fruitful than he would’ve assumed…
STARLIGHT IN YOUR EYES
He is the Maegi, blessed— or cursed— with an incredible power.
MAGICAL BOARDING SCHOOL, DARK FANTASY • He is a rare being— one of the few hundred on this planet that has the ability to gather mana from the stars. Professors from an esteemed university stumbled upon his village, and he volunteered to be taken back to their school for further study— so they would not devastate his homeland. At first, their experiments seem innocent… But eventually, their practices grow darker and darker…
By his side is you— but who are you? Perhaps you are a fellow student, a roommate, who has taken a liking to him. Or maybe you are a professor, tasked with experimenting on him, but later, cannot do the more extreme experiments? Whoever you are, dear storyteller, let us explore the halls of this school together. There are so many possibilities for both fun and frights in a magical boarding school: think field trips to abandoned magick runes, school festivals, galas and balls… and experiments that leave you sore for days, dark mana rituals, and darker things still…
HE WHO HAS A HOME IS NEVER LOST
He is the once shining knight— now exiled, now lost.
MEDIEVAL FANTASY • A young lord, the second born to his father, was critically injured while leading the charge against a group of rowdy barbarians that sought to ravage the province. After an attack, the young lord walks with a limp, and has been deemed useless by his father, despite the fact that he can still ride and fight, albeit not as well as he used to.
He is sent into the countryside to another lord’s manor — an old friend of the family — to ‘recover,’ but the young lord knows it is an exile. Depending on whether you’d like for this plot to have incest or not, a younger sibling could insist on accompanying him there. However, if not, he could meet the son or daughter of the lord’s manor he is staying at, who helps him recover and deal with the loss of his family, his province, and his people.
Eventually, however, as soon as the young lord has begun to adjust to the idea of never returning home, a letter is brought from his old province — the barbarians have invaded it, taken over, and may have killed his remaining family. The young lord and his companion — be it his sibling or the befriended son or daughter of the lord’s manor he is staying at — realize that they are the only hope for the province, and journey forth to gather allies and take back the ravaged land.
WHAT’S IT GOING TO BE THEN, EH?
He’s up for a bit of the ol’ ultraviolence.
GANGS, DYSTOPIAN, INSPIRED BY CLOCKWORK ORANGE • Oh, my brothers, the old jackal has done it again! The jackal— he’s a wily fox, the leader of this here gang. Moloko’s Boys, they call it— they steal, they fight, they run this town, and the whole town knows it. Nights are spent basking in ultraviolence: their carefree havoc has painted the town red with rage.
That’s why, when a member of their gang— the former second-in-command — is killed and strung up in front of their hideout for display, Moloko’s Boys know they have to seek revenge. And they have to do it proper. If this town thought they were ultraviolent before— just wait until they found out who killed their second mate!
And you— who are you? Are you a new member of the gang the jackal has taken a liking to, and has aspired to teach the ways of ultraviolence? Are you the newly appointed second-in-command, dedicated to finding the old’s killer? Or perhaps it was you? Did you kill the second-in-command, as an opportunity to move up in Moloko’s Boys? Are you an undercover cop, who has infiltrated the gang? Who are you, dear stranger— can you survive this ultraviolence?
[Knowledge of Clockwork Orange is not required to play this game, but it would be appreciated.]
I CAN ALMOST SEE YOU
He was a threat, at first— until you exposed his embarrassing secret.
BLACKMAIL, COERCION, BDSM, MEDIEVAL FANTASY • STRICTLY M/M • He was a mercenary, born and bred, raised to never turn his back on a job ‘til the employer placed cold coin in his hand. So when he was sent on a bounty hunting mission, he thought nothing of the job.
He did not count on his target— you, of course— being so… resourceful. Clever. Crafty. Slippery. You slipped out of his reach, narrowly evading his knife, and in the struggle between the two of you, you flip off the hood of his mercenary jacket, only to find… that he sports a pair of cat ears underneath.
You gawk at him openly— you had thought his kind was extinct long ago. He attempts to get you to forget what you saw, but since he cannot best you in a fight, and he cannot kill you, you’re now his to control. He must obey you, lest he spill your secret. And so, you take him as your servant, and as your toy to fulfill your every need.
This is one of the few plots which I’d like to be only M/M. My character for this idea is closeted— he knows he’s gay, but is very uncomfortable with the idea. I’ve love for BDSM elements to come into play, with my character finding comfort in looking to yours as a master. Your character would take the lead in this story, so wherever we go would be up to your character’s goals.
