"Hello beautiful ladies! Er... well, bros too I suppose. You may know me, I'm Bob! The mysterious, enthralling, most intelligent super being
-ehem- stuck in a skull! Anyways you're probably wondering why I'm floating around looking up skirts, not that that's
any of your business, but I'm actually on a hunt to scrounge together some folks to take on the immense forces of darkness crushing down the fabric of reality. There's no pay, no fame, and a slim chance of success. Well, less than slim, more than likely in the negatives actually. So what do ya say?
"Oh don't give me that look, you're not my first choice either! I would have placed bets on that Templar dude, but he's retired. Jeez and don't get me started on my washed up ex-owner... Harry's part of the problem we're all in this mess! Personally, I would have joined Summer Court if I had to, but Harry doesn't always have the best of luck. Ah well, you mortals say life's hard and all that.
"By the way, you got Life Insurance? No, never mind, let me give you the run down real quick.
"Alright, so the terrible Erlking is on the loose. You know, deviant master of the Wild Hunt; who summons a miasma of breeding darkness, which envelopes his troupe as he rides across the earth tearing victims apart on Hollow's Eve? Yeah, that one. For some reason this Sidhe has gone as crazy as one can get. He's found a way to keep his spree of terror occurring every night for the past three days and it's not even Halloween! He's been slaughtering anyone in his path and what's worse is that with the powerhouse of owning the mantle of Erlking, the seams holding the Nevernever together are starting to unravel, spilling all sorts of big bad nasties over downtown Chicago. What an asshole, right?
"For the record, I would have gone straight to Harry. Not that I'm a wimp or anything, he is
Chicago's go to wizard and
the Winter Knight. I've got better things to do too. Like watching that spin-off porno series of Big Boobs Covered in Chocolate on Netflix. Only problem... no one knows where he is! Pfft, leave it to tall, dark, and unshaven to disappear at the wrong time.
"You think you can find him? Be my guest. There isn't much time before this whole city collapses and all that will be left is rubble. I'm thinking of packing my things- er, unless of course we can figure out why the Erlking has lost his marbles and find Harry along the way. That's ideal you know, hiding behind Harry has always brought me out in one piece in the end. What? I've got self preservation skills!
"So you're thinking of joining a rag tag group of wannabe's? That's great! Fair warning though, we might be running around searching for all sorts of clues first. That's how Harry and I started off, back when I was his partner. We'll most likely run into a couple of his friends... the ones that don't
want to kill him, mind you. Hm, probably some that do too now that I think about it. They might have some ideas as to where that grizzled mug wandered off to.
"I'll get the rest of this Scooby-Doo gang together and we can all meet up at McAnally's Pub. It's still somewhat protected by the Unseelie Accords. I'll see you there!"
*Preferably a game for those who know the Dresden File book series by Jim Butcher, if not -there's a link at the top.*
**This is ONLY an interest check NOT an OOC thread. There will be an OOC and character approval threads posted if there's enough people to actually join in.**Here's a more in depth look at how to understand this world's magic
All genders are welcome, Bob just likes the ladies so he caters to them more. Just wanted to make that clear to everyone! I might end up playing a bi dude myself.Character Types
A player may have one character. Characters should be original and either Human Fighter, Human Practitioner, or Human Changling.
Throughout the story your character will develop and gain higher skills such as fighting styles, magical knowledge, or transform into a Fae being.
Your characters might also be interfered with by demon possession, vampire enthralled, dark god blessing and so on.Character Starters
Characters will start off with the clothing on their back. As you search areas you'll pick up objects that may be useful and others that might not.Character Template & Where to post them

***Send Templates to PM
All Canon characters are fixed NPCs in the game. They offer shelter, knowledge, and supplies. Throughout the plot they may act as your saviors or your enemies.
The environment is controlled and players can move freely within the area, but not past it until they've solved a puzzle or completed an event-which will be announced in the OOC thread. If the group is stuck they're allowed to use Bob once per event/puzzle -though, if in a dire situation a player can roll for Bob's interference and transport the group. It's a 50/50, you may be thrown into a safe zone (low) or danger zone (high) and it knocks Bob out cold until the next event.
Reminder: This will be placed in Non consensual Human section.
Safe zones are the best place to get a bit of kink on while characters rest up, but sometimes you just can't keep your enemies from trying to catch a feel before they kill you. What's worse becoming a sex slave to the Winter Court or getting your throat ripped out? Who said you can't be wantonly flirty when nervous or in near death situations?
Greater overtones of Fantasy/Adventure. Lower undertones of Horror/Humor
Minimum of once every 3 weeks. If idle for a month a PM will be sent with warning. The next week, deletion of character.
Players may only have one character. If your character dies, your soul hovers between life and death. You can either roll every 24 hours to get the D20 or wait for the group to find someone who might be able to reattach your soul to your body. While in shade mode a player can move more freely, and relay information through Bob for the group. Unfortunately in shade mode a player cannot interact with the environment or people. Warning, if you hover out of reach from Bob too long, things have a tendency to be attracted to you. If you're eaten... game over.
***Game rules are still being developed along with full plot/events/puzzles. If there's a good amount of people interested then I'll continue on with development.***
