Original concept for game and artwork is credited to AliceInLace.

Original recruitment thread can be found: here.





Why do we have a new Recruitment thread?

To put it simply, we are under new management. Though our original GM was AliceInLace, she has stepped down from the position of GM, and though everyone involved in the current game is sad to see her go, we understand her reasons for doing so. With that being said, she appointed her Co-GM, Outlaw Fallen, to become the new GM, while keeping the mods the same (myself, and msa24680). Through some revisions, we have created a new and improved recruitment thread that we hope will capture some interest!

With that being said, it should be noted that we haven't gotten too far in our game just yet. We are currently on our second IC event, which is a welcoming ball for all students/faculty. Meaning, adding new characters into the mix at this point in the game, is no challenge, whatsoever!

Please read on and post your interest here, in this thread, or contact one of the members of the staff if you have any questions, concerns, or general comments.

~The Staff: Outlaw Fallen, msa24680, Mellific




We Are Always Accepting New Characters

*Last Update: September 28, 2015*

Many years ago, the times were dim for anyone who was found paranormally gifted. Many have heard of the Salem witch trials that took place but that was only the beginning. Witches weren't the only race that blended in the normal world of the mortals. Many wars raged on between the races until eventually, they all disappeared, presumably moving into hiding. Over a century later the times have changed thanks to many authors and writers bringing forth the races in a more favorable light rather than the gruesome way they had been previously portrayed.

Blackwell was a well known name in the paranormal world as one of the wealthiest families still in existence. Soon after the paranormal community was liberated from their hiding, the head of the family proposed an idea for a school. It would be open to some of the most exclusive families of all races, essentially paranormal royalty. The students would attend the school and learn not only about their own culture but also about the mortals they now interweave with.

The school only features the best of the best, either your family has a large fortune or your scores were high enough to be considered for the preparatory school. The students with still find that many races refuse to get along, and some family feuds go back to the dark ages. However, they all must work out their differences if they wish to receive the best training available.

What they don't know is one man is still out to bring back the wrath of the dark ages and he is willing to go through whatever it takes to destroy not only the school, but the paranormal's as well. As these young adults are trying to figure out themselves, each other and intimacy... can they handle a bad guy on top of it?




Welcome

Blackwell Manor is a tale that has been building for quite some time and a concept that seemed to translate well to a fun group game. At this point, the game has already begun, but it is never too late to join and we are always seeking new interest. There are many opportunities at Blackwell, from student roles to faculty roles, and (almost) every fantasy species imaginable! 

Some specs of the game is that it is a plot-driven sandbox. Meaning that while there is an element of free-range to play how you want, there is also a major plot in place that will be helped along with use of events. The game is for EVERYONE, we are very LBGTQS friendly and encourage everyone to join. The races also have a very wide range, everyone is of a fantasy race such as: Witch, Vampire, Elf, Fae, Shape-Shifter... the possibilities are endless as there are very few we would turn down.

If you have any questions/concerns/comments, please feel free to post them here, or send them via PM to one (or all) of the staff members, mentioned above.




Character and Story Details

Characters

Seeking around 3-5 professors of various classes. Ages would be 25+
Students will be unlimited and have an age range of 16-23.
ALMOST any fantasy-based race will be accepted. The biggest exception to this would be humans, unless the human is a hybrid.
Powers must make sense to your character and have a limitation. This will prevent OP characters.


Story

Setting is modern day, which includes all modern technology.
The entire roleplay will take place around the school. The exception will be the (eventual) occasional school-wide trips to a small town nearby that is just for the paranormal.
More will come as it's talked about.




Roll Call

This is the current list of active characters in the Rp. Included at the bottom are characters who are On Hold and Retired. On Hold simply means that the typist has been incommunicado/inactive in the game/OOC and will be placed On Hold until the Staff hears from them.

Glad to hear it! Bear with me as I'm still in the middle of rerouting our links and creating new ones for the revised version of this Rp.

Our Character Creation thread is up but not complete just yet. Did you have an idea for a character? Student or Professor? :3

How about a character that appears human, but is possessed but the ghost of his ancester who was a very lustful witch. At night, the witch takes over and transforms him into her original form. During the day, she whispers in his mind and can influence him discretely.He has a latent talent for witchcraft and has been sent to the school to develop it.

Student. I have rough ideas bouncing in my head. Is there a type of student that is more prominent? A certain race that's already overplayed? Was wanting to do something a bit more original.

Students who appear human but are actually hybrids or, in this case it sounds more like the human body is a 'host' of sorts, is definitely something we can work with. We'd need to see a full bio to really get to the nitty-gritty details of it all, but it's not off-limits. The only exception to characters we'd accept would be humans who are fully human. This is a school for the paranormal, after all. :-)

Your idea is an intriguing one! I'd love to see it written out in a character sheet. I am currently revising the bio sheets to make them a bit easier to read/understand. So, give me a few moments and I will link that thread to you once I've finished, then you can certainly write up a bio!

Oh yaay! hehe I had two ideas bouncing around my brain for a while, but the game had been going for a bit and its hard to work into a game that's been going for a while. But I saw this and my muses perked up and I had to poke. :P

PS your Fenris looks like a ton of fun!

When the original GM made this she wanted to make sure it was easy to swing in and out of the RP with little to no problems. All of us who RP here know how awkward it can be to try and get into a game that has been going for a while so we have a tendency to be active in helping newcomers come into the group and helping them settle in~ <3

Why thank you~ <3 He was inspired by quite a few characters and Mel helped me finalise him. ^^

Working on trying to get this second character done now. I got a bit tipsy celebrating my new job and didn't really get back to it last night LOL.

Will do! I'm hoping what I came up with works within the game :)
