Hello, and welcome to the interest check for my new Bloodborne RP that I plan to start pretty much as soon as I have a feeling that we'll actually have players to populate it. I have been a huge fan of Bloodborne since it came out, first of its gameplay and atmosphere and later of the world, lore and extensive theorycrafting going on around it, and have been wanting to do something with the setting for years. And now I will.

This RP is going to take place about five years after the events of the game, at least initially in Yharnam, and is going to allow for the freedom to explore the world of Bloodborne and an amalgamation of theories I have collected and come up with on my own. Things are going to get grotesque, dark, violent and overwhelming for the characters as they are pitted against the scourge of beasts, monsters from other worlds and others of their own.
It is a Night of the Hunt unlike any before it, and terrible things are going to happen. Survival is... unlikely. Try to stay alive, or at least kill some beasts before you die.

So, I present to you:

Are there any limits to what weapons we are allowed to wield? I know weapons such as Simon's Bowblade, the Hold Moonlight Greatsword, and (maybe) Blade of Mercy are unique and there is only one of each. Are weapons such as this off-limits? Or at the very least off-limits for multiple people? Are some weapons faction specific?

Those weapons are canonically unique in the physical world, yes, so Hunters almost certainly won't be able to obtain them there... but there are ways to get them in other worlds or in the labyrinth. For most "starting weapons" - that is, for Hunters who are not (false) Paleblood Hunters, who wake up with nothing - I would definitely prefer if people stuck with more basic or faction-specific weapons, yeah.

(Within reason, of course. Factions like the Fire Dancers or the Harrow, for instance, who fight other Hunter factions even when it is not a Night of the Hunt, might have come into possession of other factions' weapons. In contrast, it would probably be very unlikely for an Executioner to take up the weapon of a Vileblood, or vice versa.)

The selection will expand as the RP progresses, but for the beginning I would prefer to keep things like that.

EDIT: As one might guess from the above, (false) Paleblood Hunters will probably have an easier time getting their hands on "unique" weapons since they are able to move between worlds much more easily than others.

I think I'm going to aim for five or six people to show interest before actually making the proper RP thread and possibly start working on an opening IC post to set the scene for at least some of the characters. I could go with fewer, but experience has shown me that you're lucky if half the number of people showing interest actually end up joining the RP, so if anything I'd be inclined to have more.

Even so I really hope people are interested in this. I'm personally excited by the idea and eager to set my plans into motion.

I'll add my interest as well, though I don't know what kind of character to make yet. I'm tempted to make an established Hunter, rather than a new (fake) Paleblood, but the disadvantages for doing so don't seem worth it.

I'll say as much as that there will be ways in the RP to somewhat alleviate some of the disadvantages normal Hunters have when compared to Paleblood Hunters, namely in that there will be ways for these Hunters to travel between worlds, but it's generally difficult to justify equalizing the two lifeforms. Arguably normal Hunters might have an advantage in that they have experience as Hunters, they can be established in a faction and have its support and they have been given/taken equipment from the start... but Paleblood Hunters can probably catch up in that regard pretty fast considering how attractive they are to the factions, and the fact that they will have the aid of the Hunter's Dream.

I'm also interested, by the way. I love Bloodborne.

Well, Jack, you know I'm down ;P
As far as preliminary character ideas goes, I think I'll go with one of the "super not recommended" ones... I'll work on playing a church Blood Saint. Indoctrinated by the church, she'd live under delusions of divinity, basing her self worth off of her ability to bless the people with the gift of the godhead from her veins.

This also means that, should anyone be interested, there is a possible spot for a church hunter to play the guardian and warden for her. Incense only does so much to ward off the diseased, and the scent of her blood drives most beasts mad with desire once they catch a whiff of it.

I am interested.

I've always found the setting of Bloodborne very intriguing, despite never having finished the game nor having known a ton of the lore behind it.

I will ask if we are allowed to have multiple characters, or if we can adopt new characters if our current one were to die, @Dark Jack.

I'm leaning towards Hunter or Beast, but am considering all of the races.

Yes on both of those questions, @Bartimaeus; you are free to have multiple characters and replace dead characters. I will stress that characters introduced after the start of the RP are going to have other starting conditions than the first batch, since obviously other characters (or the GM-controlled NPCs attached to them) aren't going to be staying at the starting locations forever.

And if you're conflicted concerning Hunter or beast, you could make a Hunter of the Harrow and be something in-between.

Sorry for double posting, but I hadn't actually realized how many new posts had popped up here overnight and I just had to comment:

Oooooo boy, Ashgan. If I were to include Blood Saints (and an official one with the Healing Church (presuming the White Healing Church), at that, rather than an undiscovered Blood Saint like Arianna) on the list of "races" and apply a rating to it like the others, it would indeed be way down at the very bottom of the list. Barely stronger than a normal human and with no protection from death, but with some of the most desirable, intoxicating blood in the world pumping through her veins? It would take incredible discipline to resist assaulting her in the heat of the hunt.

At least it might be an opportunity to explore something new that the game never addressed, if it comes to that: what happens when a Blood Saint turns into a beast?

Thank you for the answer ^^
I quite enjoy how you're going about this setting, I will say. And thanks for the suggestion!

Also, if nobody takes up your offer, Ashgan, I believe I may do so.
