Goal Of RP: Find out who killed Lucy Taylor, why they did it, and stop them.

Premise

On June 20th, 2016, the world almost came to an end with the beginning of the biblical apocalypse. The events which took place in Altsoba county surrounding this, tainted not only Altsoba, but the area around it as well. Though, twenty-six years before, Altsoba and the nearby county of Silver Falls were picturesque, quaint and perfect paradises in rural Washington. No evil dwelled there, and it was a wonder that one day such a horrid event would take place, focused on a place which was so peaceful.

But every small town has its secrets.

Almost exactly twenty-six years before the Altosba Massacre, the small town of Silver Falls, ten miles south of Altsoba awoke to tragedy. Hidden away in Silver Falls' Forest Park, the body of the homecoming queen - Lucy Taylor, was found, crucified on an upside-down cross. The grief and mystery spread through the small town like wildfire, with one thing being clear in everyone's mind - this was not a normal murder.

With the arrival of Donald Baker, an FBI agent sent to investigate the murder, more curious questions began to pop up - a single letter was found sewn into Lucy's tongue, 'P', and reports of strange sightings around town after dark began to spread, tales of monsters, ghosts. Quickly the town was taken over by paranoia, but most of the residents still held a strong desire to see the truth of the matter, who killed Lucy Taylor?

With only a few clues to go on, and the increasing paranoia spreading through the small town, a meeting is called at the town's community centre on June 14, it would be made clear what was known so far, and what was to take place. Dark things are on the move in Silver Falls, and unless stopped - may threaten far more than just this little rural community.



Characters

Active:
  • Donald Baker

Deceased:
  • Lucy Taylor - ???

Known NPCs:




Town Details and Specifics




Locations:
  • Area 1 - The Business District
  • Area 2 - The Residential District
  • Area 3 - Lake Knowledge Hotel
  • Area 4 - Silver Falls General Hospital
  • Area 5 - Silver Falls Community Center
  • Area 6 - Harris Lumbermill
  • Area 7 - Silver Falls Forest Park
  • Area 8 - The Anderson's Mansion


Characters can live in Sunshine Apartments, in a house on either Graze, August or Lumber streets. Pacific North University is just forty minutes away from Silver Falls, so some college students do tend to move into the residential area or rent an apartment. Beyond this, temporary accommodations can be found at the Lake Knowledge Hotel.



The Lore

This RP follows the lore outlined in the guide to the abandoned hope universe. Anything outside of this thread as new additions will be outlined here. All necromantic knowledge is immensely uncommon considering that this RP takes place before the Altosba massacre, and so any characters with explicit necromantic knowledge must be discussed with the GM beforehand.

  • Communication is Key
  • The world is controlled by the GM - All NPC's, weather, what you see, what you find, what happens, everything. So if it isn't in my post, it didn't happens
  • If you wish your character to have "connections" please run it by the GM first to ensure it is acceptable and isn't already being done by another.
  • Randomization and LLA are used in this RP - Please refer to Lady Amalthea's tutorial for a description if you are new to this concept
  • Posting Habits
    • Minimal of 2 well developed paragraphs per post
    • Must IC post once every 7 days (It is your job to keep up with when you need to post. Your last post hits Day 8 and I remove you from the RP.)
    • I do not accept no inspiration as a reason not to post
    • Keep up with all IC and OOC posts
    • No word in IC or OOC after 7 days is grounds for removal from the RP.
    • If you need additional time to post you must notify the Gm by day 5 of your counter. Extensions will not be granted after that.
    • No spamming OOC
    • Under Extras in the CS mention how you take your coffee so I know you at least skimmed this...
    • Minimal 2 posts between your last
    • There is no additional time granted due to forum glitches unless the forum is fully down. A week to post is plenty of time even if the forum glitches a day or two
    • Collabs may not be started after your day 5 counter
    • If you are collabing and your partner vanishes or does not reply, you must finish the collab and post it before the timer runs out
    • If your collab partner vanishes you are granted temporary minimal bunnying privileges to complete the collab
    • If your collab partner vanishes, you need to make the Gm aware so it does not count against you
    • Know your personal posting limitations before applying to join
    • If you cannot post, you must contact the GM and make me aware, you will be granted extra time to post (do not take advantage of this) - I realize real life comes first but you know your schedule better than anyone, if you join it is your responsibility to keep up and not hold up the rest of the Rpers. I will work with you, just let me know what's going on
  • Spots are not first come first serve
    • Gm will review completed CS first
    • Gm will review previous Rp's and posting habits
    • Gm will then notify you if you are approved
    • Character deaths will happen, no one is safe - it will be randomized and you will be notified when your death approaches. (This does not mean you are out of the RP, it will mean however you need to make a new character should you wish to continue - I recommend having Back Up Characters Ready)
    • I am looking for long term highly dedicated Rpers. This RP is within the same universe as Abandoned Hope, which finished after eight months.
  • Once Cs's are approved, relation sheet will go up and must be completed and added to CS
  • Rules and Cs sheet will be added to and changed as need be depending on problems or points that come up.
  • Under Extras in your CS please post a link to a post you have done in the past to show you have read the rules. If You submit a CS without this it may be declined.
  • Special - To New Comers To The Guild - Pm The Gm for a tid bit to add under extras instead




Character Sheet

Below is the character sheet required for the RP. There are a few specific requirements for backstories which is necessary for all characters - in that every character must have some degree of relation with the late Lucy Taylor. This is not to say that all characters must be locals to Silver Falls (though this is certainly encouraged), it simply means you must have a fair reason for why they may not be a local and still be associated with her.

Considering that this RP takes place before Abandoned Hope, you are more than welcome to bring in an ancestor or family member of any character you played in Abandoned Hope. However, this character can not be of any direct relation to characters in Abandoned Hope (No fathers, mothers, etc.) as there is still the chance they may die in this RP.





Relation Sheet

You will record your thoughts and opinions on other characters. To start the RP, you are required to have one relation to start with. If you're having trouble coming up with one, let me know and I can sort it out for you. There'll be periodic moments throughout the RP where I ask that you update these.

There is also a space included for your observations. Clues and points of interest can be placed there, in order to help you follow the story as it progresses. This is imperative to the RP, after all - this is a mystery.

Assuming I could join this, could I be a serial killer? Maybe I was vetting Lucy Taylor before killing her and suddenly she shows up dead?

@Bishop

I'm afraid that'd be a bit too on the nose for what I'm looking for. Characters who look a bit suspicious are all fine, but for the most part, i'm looking for characters who fit in fairly normally with a reasonable, happy rural community. Think any of the characters from the first season of Twin Peaks.

@Pundii Can I play the sheriff of the town, or something of the sort? I looked up the show and just thought I'd ask before creating the character.

Somewhere around their 30s maybe? I'd say 32 as a minimum, perhaps.

I've been working away at my CS as well. This is probably the most complex CS form I've ever filled out, so it's been kind of overwhelming, yet it's also made me work really hard on getting my character just right.

@S0up@Mike73@HushedWhispers@FantasyChic@Morose@Nallore

Alright friends, I've finally got my CS up, and I'm going to be aiming to start us off next Friday the 15th, so please try to get your CS's done by then. There'll be a small grace period shortly afterwards to get them done, but the sooner the better.

@FantasyChic

Your CS is good to go, you can add it to the characters tab. ^^
