34 Newton Road



Intro

The crisp morning air tells of the change from summer into autumn. Staring up as the house in front of you, you take a deep breath to calm your nerves. This is it. 34 Newton Road. Your home for the next year as you carry out your education at Cambrucks University.
The house itself was a lucky find; 3 floors with a converted basement as well, 5 bedrooms, 2 showers, large garden and all of it stood a little less than 2 miles from the university itself. The rent had been ridiculously cheap as well for the area even split between your housemates. The little old lady who owned the house had asked for 4 months rent upfront, you hadn't thought much about it at first, just a little old lady needing a bit of money pronto. It was only upon living in the house you realised the truth. The house was infested with demons.

What is 34 Newton road?

'34 Newton Road' is a role play about university students living in a house share which is infested by demons. The students have paid 4 months of rent upfront to their seemingly harmless old landlady and are hence stuck in the house for 4 months (minimum) unless they wish to spend more money else where. The role play focuses on the interaction and living arrangements between the students and demons; it can go in other directions however if feel like this is a good starting point.

The house

The house has 5 bedrooms; 1 in the basement, 2 on the second floor and 2 on the top floor which is a converted attic.
The sitting room, dinning room and kitchen are on the 1st floor.
The only bathroom is on the 2nd floor but there is a shower room in the basement.
The house is 2 miles away from Camburcks University which is where the students attend university.

Demon Lore

-Demons in the house are bound to the house
There are rituals which allow the demons to be bound to an object as well such as a necklace but this would mean that the demon would have to convince the human to preform the ritual and there will be restrictions to how this affects the demon.
-Demons in the house feed of emotion
Each demon has an emotion that they can consume. They do not necessarily need to consume this emotion to survive however it makes them stronger and generally is desired. To achieve this emotion to be produced the demons will have to manipulate situations within the household to make 1 or more students present this emotion. Demons can get these 'emotion-meals' from NPC but it is more effective for them to get them from the students.
-Demons in the household can allow themselves to be seen or not seen by the students
The students in the household can see the demons if the demons allow them to as they have signed a contract to the property. Characters who don't live in the household cannot see the demons at all as they have not signed a contract, however if characters that do not live in the household preform a ritual to contact the demon(s) then they will be subject to the same rules and be subject to the same harassment as the tenants receive.
-Demons in the house are lower level demons
As the demons in the household are bound to the house it is safe to assume that they are lower level demons without supernatural powers as they cannot break the boundaries of the house. Higher level demons can break most boundaries unless they are placed down by a group or a strong priest, witch or warlock.
-Some demons can have supernatural powers
Not all demons have abilities as most are low level demons, however depending of their specialised 'emotion-meals' some demons do, for example, demons who have a preference for lust can change their appearance to their desired appearance or the person they are trying to trick's preference in appearances.
Discuss with me if you want your character to have an extra power.
-Demons can manipulate physics slightly
Depending on the action it can tire the demon out, however the demons in the household can do actions such as walking through walls, walking up walls and on the ceilings and float. Feats such as walking through walls doesn't take much energy however if the demon was to support/raise/float and item/themselves for a long period of time it can take a lot of energy out of them and they may need an 'emotion-meal' to raise their energy meals.
-Demons do have emotions
Demons do have emotions like humans; they can be hurt emotionally, be angry, happy ect; however a demon feeding of another demons emotions is highly looked down upon.
-Demons can eat and sleep but its not necessary
A demon if it has a preference can do these activities, however, they are not necessary for their survival.
-Demons can interact with the physical plane
The demons can pick items up and interact with physical items. They can do this whilst being visible or not visible to the tenants, however if a tenant sees a demon holding an item whilst the demon does not wish for the tenant to see them, the tenant will only see the item suspended in the air or however the demon is holding it.

General rules and stuff to take into consideration

-Please try to post at least once a week
-Don't be annoying
-Try to be grammatically correct
-Talk to me (beeve) if you have any questions about lore ect
we'll work it out together
-If a character (NPC or Player) is killed by a demon the students would be advised to not blame this upon the demons as authorities will not.
- The students can train in 'witchery' if they wish to learn how to protect themselves or learn more about rituals and the supernatural however they will have to find a teacher.

@Dealdricover all she's a good character , however I'm not too fond on the mind reading aspect as it doesn't necessarily fit with her emotion type; also I'm not too sure how a 'contentness' emotion-meal would work? maybe it would be better to change this to a more active or extreme emotion such as intense apathy?
If you can link the mind reading in to the preferred emotion in some way I'll allow it but I'm just a little unsure on how that would work at the moment x

@Beeve

Well, if someone is not content, she could read their mind to see what would make them content. That way, she could if she was in the mood make them content so she could get a meal. mutual relationship.

Name: Ravus
Nickname: N/A
Age: Appears late 20's
Gender:
Sexual orientation:Heterosexual
Appearance: Ravus manifests as human — bearing one hell of an aura (palpable through temperature shifts/sense of unease depending on his mood). Often times he's usually spotted in the staple white shirt, tie, black trousers, shoes. Also has the bad habit of smoking and goes as far as lifting cigarettes from unsuspecting "guests". His hair is in constant disarray. His expressions are usually apathetic at best, or cold and severe at worst, any other emotion he hides under the veils of stoicism.
Personality: Ravus absolutely abhors his confinement. He believes he's been punished or is cursed to exist trapped within the property grounds of the house and never able to move on. A limbo with no finality. According to him, the outcome won't change any time soon. He'd rather be alone than commune with anyone, human or demon and only seeks them for their provisions. If he can't attain satiation for whatever reason he'll resort to smoking.
Emotion preference: Affection/Love/Like
Extra powers:Manipulate the etheric phenomenon that revolves around a person or object. An individualized ability limited to his surroundings. (Can't pass the property line — he's tried.) He can sense "auras". At times, he projects his own within the surroundings on objects, or anyone within ten meter distance to his will. However, it can put a strain on him if he abuses the power so he keeps it contained. Yet, it isn't like an internal switch. He can't turn it off, it is like attempting to hold one's breath. Eventually, he has to let it go. When he's in a bad mood, the space around him will reflect that.
Things they are easily affected by: Exhaustion, rock salt, and being reminded of his own inability to move on.

@mmarage I'm basing this off English university as that's what I'm used to; this meansthat your character would only be able to take 2 subjects at degree at a time
