I've had an idea for this RP ever since I read a book called "The Satanic Verses" Granted, it's not so much the story as a whole that brought on this idea, but rather a part of the book.
So, I wrote it up a while ago, intending to make it a site, but realized it was a little too small to make a site out of. But now that I've joined E, I thought I'd explore it, see if I can get interest.
The idea of the game is that people all over the world won a free vacation. No one knows where, but it's all expenses paid and first class accommodations. Unfortunately, the plane crashes in mid flight and the survivors wash up on the shore of a desert island.
At first everything seems alright. They are disheartened to know they are lost and have to wait for rescue, but the tropical island is fertile with edible plants, and some of the food from the plane survived, so they know they can survive.
However, voices start talking to the survivors. Voices that only they can hear, voices that offer them a step towards escaping the island if they do deeds.
As a survivor, your job is to do a deed, or choose not to do it, while also interacting with other survivors. After each deed or lack of one, something about you changes as a consequence. These deeds can be small like theft, to large things like say rape, but I assure you, each one can cause significant change to your body, a change that may not be what you intended.
If that's hard to understand, let me give an example:
A man lays dying. He's contracted a disease and is not expected to live and keeps on demanding water as he slowly wastes away. You are told by the voice to replenish this man's thirst by giving him water. You do, and because of that, you are able to keep him alive 5 days longer than expected before he dies.
The next day when you wake up, your eyes are red and you have grown a pointed tail.
Though you thought it was a kind deed, you prolonged the man's suffering all those days instead of giving him peace, which earned you a devilish change.
The idea is that the game is mostly freeform on the island, but every so often, you are told in private to do a deed and you must do it or refuse to do it (Possibly in a thread independent from the main thread.) Once the deed is done or ignored, your body changes and you have to live with what happened in the main RP thread. I was also thinking about making a list of the people and what changes have happened. The deeds would of course take into account the person's O/Os
Any questions or ideas I'm all ears and up for PM or replies here
