Premise

There is are a plague of murders and killings spreading like wildfire. The epicenter is none other than the city of Justice. Located along the coast of California. Murder Town USA. Here a line of conspiracy theories stretching from the east coast to the west began to weave a web of death together. Each strand created from another death. All seemingly to lead back to a secret organization of powerful women known as Juno. All in search of the smallest of trinkets unearthed by Professor Richard Gerard while he was on an archeological dig in Greece.

Why are they after this? Why so much murder to get ahold of them? Isn't that what we are trying to figure out? Yes, yes it is. The thing is, even when we know what we should be doing, what we are after, what answers we must seek, nothing is ever as simple as we wish it to be. With each murder, with each death more questions come into focus. And those we once thought as our allies have become our enemies. Why? Because as we seek justice for one deed, do we not create a need for another to seek justice in their own right?

It is a grim situation to be in when there are people that play as gods in the dark corners of the world. It creates ruins of madness. Yet in our darkest hour, can we find a ghost of a chance? Perhaps out of one tragedy a new hope can be born for the generations to come. Or maybe, the vicious cycle will continue. As one seeks justice for one situation, another chases them to do the very same. When does it end? Who is evil and who is good? Sure, there are some out there that are truly worst of the worst yet most of the time all we are doing is seeking Justice for the loved ones we have lost along the way.

A new twist to our long growing set of cases has emerged. In the form of an unknown source. A flashing set of dots on a computer screen. A note delivered. A Last Will And Testament. Can we trust the words we are seeing? How many times has the words of Edgar Allen Poe been quoted? Believe nothing of what you read and only half of what you see. How true those words are but what can we do? We must start something and perhaps just this once, the devil we don't know is better than the devil we do. Or maybe we should trust the devil we know just this once. Either way, it does not matter. Prometheus has arrived.


Characters



The Case Files

So many crimes, so little time. Some get swept under the rug, others become a focal point. The thing is that while a case might be open or closed is not the main point. Each case opens anew path to the destination, even if you are not sure what that destination might be. Perhaps they are there just to provide a single clue that could come into play at a later date. Maybe not. The thing is you need to keep track and pay attention. While most Rps are just about Rping, this Rp is less about just typing away and reacting to a situation. It is about solving the mysteries. The large and the small.

Why should you care other than just the fun of closing one of these? The rewards! Oh yes, there are wonderful magnificent It could be a spoiler card, perhaps a free reroll of a blown skill, or even coveted get out of a LLA death! You never know. The more complicated the case, the more important, the grander it is to the overall plot of the RP, the bigger the reward! Below you will find all the case files throughout the RP thus far. Some are closed. Some are still open IC and being invesitgated by the proper authorities.

The Justice Case Files
All cases here happened within the vicinity of Justice, California since the beginning of this RP.



The Grimm Case Files
All cases here happened within the vicinity of Grimm, Indiana. Case Files could include cases from Murder High Reunion.



The X-Files
All cases here happened outside of our main locations but are some how tied to the two main locations.



The World Under Grey Skies

It started in a single set of apartment buildings at a block party. Over the last three chapters it has grown into so much more. Because of this, maps are a most needed thing. Below you will find maps for the two major points of play currently in the rp. There are other cities in play or locations that characters have passed through but their significance is either minor or far to fleeting to be worth the time/effort/details of a custom map with markers.

Maps are broken down into main areas of interest and specific points that have played apart in either Darker Than Black or Murder High Reunion. (These Rps are both heavily connected because of locations.) Throughout the Rp more is being added to them as events unfold. Maps are usually though only most heavily updated at the start of a new chapter. Not ever point is listed out even then though, so make sure to keep your own notes.





The Code

Below you will find three different codes. One is your CS and has to be filled out and submitted to the Gm either via the OOC or PM. The second is your Relation Sheet and is for on going relations through out the RP to keep track of how things are progressing between the characters. Both of these will be updated and added to through out the RP. The third is the uniform header we use for the RP and must be used at the top of each of your posts.
Character Sheet

*Do not use character face claims that are already in use - Check CS tab and all links in the Original OOC post to compare with NPCs to ensure you are not picking a FC that is already in use or has been. Make sure to read the code carefully for instruction as well as ALL the rules in the zeroth post in the OOC.

New comers to the RP at this point must consult the GM for a starting location. No character at this point may be born and raised in Grimm or Justice. You may NOT start a new character already in a relationship with another character, new or old. You may start an RP as knowing another character but it cannot be a romantic relationship or heading that way.



Relation/Clue Sheet - Header

*If you solve the case - Submit your answer and how you came to it to the GM via PM!!!

This is where you keep notes about the other characters or things you see happen in the RP to help you solve the case. Place these under your character sheets in the CS Tab - Just Edit it in - These must be done and updated through out the Rp. There will be deadlines made for updates from time to time and if they are not met it will result in the same as any other rule break - Removal from the RP.

This is not required before you start a new character since you will not know any of the current PC's with GM and RPer approval first. Should you have one, then yes, you better get the relation sheet filled out.

If you where here for Chapters 1, 2, or 3 - At this point you need to clean out all previous clue and relation sheets - replace it with the one below. Make sure that you have all PC's listed that your character has met listed out. Considering most of the PC's are dead, this shouldn't take long.


Remember this is your uniform header code. Make sure it is used at the top of each of your posts and updated with each post. Skills must be changed out when being used. Location must be updated for each post. A non-updated header equals an incomplete post. (This means your counter is still running and you are risking getting removed from the RP.)

Header:
*Headers must be used at the top of each IC post.


Cases

To help the Rp flow better, we are instituting "Cases" - these are assignments where you utilize a collab between yourself and 1/2 other Rpers to make the RP flow more smoothly. Basically how this works is that you will be given a "Case" and be assigned, along with others, to complete said case. You will be given an assignment, a location, assets you need to acquire and/or missions to complete.

*Please note the case technique explained here is unrelated to the Case Files above.

Example:
Case Name: Canton
Lead Reason: Supply Run
Secondary Reason: Hunting
Recruiting: Not currently
Group: Jack, Riley, Bryn


Now you have your case. You will start a collab between all parties involved and the GM, me. I will conduct rolls as you need them or call for them and keep collabing until the job is done or you all are dead. You post it in IC when you get a ~post this~ from me or when you get done.

Here is the kicker - you will be given a time limit to finish the run. 1 week, 1 month (real life time, not RP time) - and you are still held to the posting standards requirements so if you have a second character it is still on your main counter. Any questions, hit up me for answers. I will go over each case as it is posted and walk you through it as much as you personally need.

Tributes

For any that have participated in one of my Rps over the last three years, it is a known tidbit of information that I tend to use music a lot in my rps. All CS's are required to have a song fitting that character on it. I use songs in posts, to drop clues, and more. Some RP's even receive a tribute or two. All of them can be found either in Lady A Studios or Lady A RP Youtube. One particular one that encompassed the first two chapters of this RP can be found below. It was one hell of a ride. So all aboard!

Question about the apartments, do they get randomly assigned or do we choose them? I looked through the rules and couldn't see anything about it, but then again I might just be blind. Lady A can attest to that. >_>

@Charnobylisk I was going to do the random assignment but went against it this time and removed it from the standard list of rules for something like this. Go ahead and pick one as you see fit.

I'd say yes but a very basic one, you don't need to follow the template we use. Mostly just something like;

Name
Alias
Age
Occupation
History

That sort of thing.
