Active recruitment for the game has stopped for the moment.
If you are still interested in participating, please do continue to post your interest in this thread so that we can keep track of who is interested and what character you are interested in playing, as there will likely be more openings for characters as we go along.
Also, just as a note, from this point on, we will most likely be looking for certain characters for the game. So unfortunately that means not everyone that shows interest will be accepted into the game, but please don't let that stop you from posting interest.
Nestled on a hill in the woods in the outlying area of Inverness Scotland, a Gothic castle stands out in stark contrast to the trees surrounding it. The ancestral home for a pack of werewolves, they had lived and died there for countless centuries, under the rule of the Alpha. It was the perfect place for such creatures, tucked in amongst the lore and legend of Loch Ness, no one would even notice a pack of werewolves living right under their noses for centuries. Or so they thought...
There were rumors floating around that the humans had begun to become suspicious about the 'family'. Word had gotten back to the pack that humans were starting to piece together different things of the family history, and were beginning to put two and two together, the suspicion that their was something quite different about the 'family' occupying Lochlomand castle.
Now their semi peaceful existence is being threatened by the possibility of being discovered by the humans, and a turf war about to erupt along their borders. A coven of vampires has moved into the area, their coven bordering the werwolf's territory. They have moved in as close as they possibly can to the werewolf borders, but not so close as to encroach on their territory......yet.
The coven bent on killing the long standing Alpha of the werewolf pack, thereby, hopefully, throwing the pack into chaos, leaving the territory unguarded long enough to allow for them to then take over and making it their own.
Not an easy task to be sure, but the elder vampire and coven leader is both wise and crafty and has formulated a plan to put things in motion to do just that. The Alpha would die, and the territory would be theirs, it was only a matter of time.....

Now for a bit about the actual game itself:
This is the first group game that I've ever thought about running, so please be patient with me while I learn the ins and outs of it all. I will have help from a couple of awesome people, so you won't be left to my ineptness alone. *grin*
This will be a free form game (modern day setting), the story taking place from the view of the vampires and werewolves, and possibly the occasional human, or other mythical creatures. The vampires are scheming to kill the Alpha and then take over the werewolves' territory. There is the possibility of much deliciousness for plot twists and turns, as well as wonderful interactions between the two groups ranging from fighting to lust filled encounters. Romance, intrigue, drama, sex and violence are all wonderful possibilities.
Please keep in mind that this is a game in which longer replies will be required. There may be times that shorter replies are needed, but if you are prone to writing replies of less than a paragraph, this probably isn't the game for you.
Some other things to keep in mind. There will be cross gender writers in this group, so anyone applying must be open to that. No one will be forced to write with anyone, but since there will be that element involved, players should at least be comfortable with it.
The game will be taking place in the Extreme section of the boards to allow for what ever sort of interaction the writers want to have take place. Not everything involved will be extreme in nature, and those story arcs containing extreme material will be labeled as such, but prospective players must be at least comfortable being in a game that will contain such elements.
The nature of this game will be very dark, thus the vampires will NOT
be of the Twilight variety. So anyone interested in playing a vampire will need to know that there will be no
sparkly vampires allowed. The basic idea for the tone is similar to the Anita Blake novels.
Also, there will be need at some points during the story for a few people to play multiple characters. Not everyone will be required to do such, but it would be nice if a few people are open to doing so should the need arise.
So if you are interested in playing you can reply to this thread.
In your reply please let me know the following information so that there will be a good mix of both characters and writers to maximize the fun for everyone (note: The role of the Alpha wolf and the Elder vampire leader are already taken since they are key roles in helping the story progress):
1.The type (vampire, werewolf, human, etc.) and sex of the character you are interested in playing
2.If you prefer the person writing in the scene with you to be the same sex as their character, or if you are okay with cross gender writing.
3.The sexual orientation of the character you would like to play.
4.If you are willing to play more than one character.
Once I have an idea of how many people are interested, and the number of different characters in the mix, I will then post up an OOC thread for character profiles and such, so no need for detailed character write ups at this point. Just looking for the general idea of who and what before anything gets started.
Thanks for your interest! Looking forward to writing with some of you!
