The dimly lit, dreary streets of Maysville were cold this time of year. Though the temperature was clearly below freezing, the only precipitation the town ever got was a murky rain. Your shoes squelched as the mud from the ground crashed with the pavement below.

Ten minutes ago, you woke up in the forest. The infamous Haunted Hoffmann Hills, you awoke in, though there were no hills at all. Maybe the townsfolk just wanted alliteration, who knows?

Thoughts ran through your head as you scanned the empty streets for people. Was I kidnapped? What did they want? Who were the other figures who woke up in the forest with me?

Your group finally spots a house with a light on. Under normal circumstances, you’d find it suspicious that someone was awake at four in the morning, but now you were grateful for any sign of life.

What do you do?

Awesome! Quick question! Do all of our abilities have to have a consequence, or would a lower-tier ability be consequence free? Also, are we allowed to come up with our own consequences, or would you prefer to assign them yourself?


If the ability isn't superpowered/supernatural, you can have no consequence with it. (like, good at skipping stones). You can come up with your own consequence if you want to :D I might try and give suggestions, though.
Could you be more specific about what ability means in this case? Maybe an example of an ability at the upper limit of what you would accept?


@CDT0925 Sorry about the vagueness! An ability is just something your character is uniquely good at, or a special power they can control. The character can be a brainiac, able to solve complex equations with only their mind or super strength, able to lift cars and trucks with little to no effort at all.

I'm looking at the Kids on Bikes system RPG for reference and i think i'd say the upper limit is, for example, altering the speed of time. This ability is powerful, so it also has drawbacks. Maybe the character can't control how long they speed up/slow down for or they age rapidly if they try to use it.

Abilities can be mostly anything under the sun, as long as they have about equal consequence to the player. Another example could be telekinesis, but can only be used if the character is inebriated enough.

Consequences don't all have to be psychological/physical. For example, the brainiac can have a hard time socializing with others, as they've spent most of their time studying. Or the character with super strength is feared among the students/peers, even if they try to be friendly.

tl;dr Abilities are just special things your character can do, compared to other people. You can have almost any ability, as long as they have a suitable weakness/drawback.

thanks! :D

"Don't be a stranger! We're naturally welcoming."

Concrete Organs


Something lurks within Maysville, NC. From dead rats falling from the sky to statues moving at night, nothing here is what it seems. A strange allure keeps the town from realizing its true nature, citizens chalking it up to hallucinations or urban legends. Put your ear to the ground, and you can hear the town’s secrets being whispered in your ear.

On June 13, 2010, several citizens of Maysville disappeared in the near Hofmann woods for 72 hours. Nobody knows what happened in those unaccounted hours. They were spotted unconscious on June 17, at 4:47 am, everyone having a strange scar branded just below their collarbone.

i am testing things how do you put columns here
Worry not! I have confidence in your ability. Your initial post gives me much hope for an interesting RP. Out of curiosity though, will this use a game system, or is it more of a free RP?


thank you :D i was thinking major events/combat could use some altered 5e system and everything else would be mostly free rp. nothings really set in stone yet but i do want to incorporate some 'leveling up' mechanic or just get more stats based on what you do in the rp. example, if you're a bookworm and spend most downtime in the library, you'd gain more intelligence points or something like that.

have any of you seen roleplays that worked like this before? i still want to keep the casual/free aspect of it and make it easy for beginners to pick up
@CDT0925 that's awesome! i feel a little underqualified now haha

i'm still working on the setting and overall plot and you're welcome to give suggestions if you want!
