The Roleplay will be divided into two parts, a prologue and the main story line. The Prologue will basically "set the table" for the events of the primary storyline and is very necessary for the structure of the Roleplay.
Below are basic descriptions of the Prologue and the main story. Please read them thoroughly.
The prologue takes place at a rather wild beach party in Florida during spring break. The group of friends that the Roleplay is centered around is attending this party, and of course my partners' character has been invited, seeing as they are dating one of the "group members".
At first everything is going smoothly, and the "new member" of the group is enjoying themself thoroughly between partying hard and making new friends.
However, later that evening is when things go awry.
A rather cruel prank is pulled on someone's sister, and it ends in a rather bad manor.
This results in the young girl fleeing from the party in shame and humiliation, which ends up costing her her very life in s tragic incident.
This simple half-baked prank and it's horrific outcome sets in motion an even more horrifying string of events in the very near future to come...
THE MAIN STORYLINE
The main events of the Roleplay will take place later in July, well into the summer after the spring semester has ended.
It has been well over two months since the death of the young lady at the beach party, and her brother, who is one of the members of the "friends group", is still battling the trauma and depression of his sisters' death.
His friends, who he has since distanced himself from, due to their involvement in the cruel prank that cost his sister her life, are all still feeling the guilt from last spring to the deepest.
One day from the blue, the brother reaches out to the friends group and invites them all on a camping trip in the gorgeous mountains of Tennessee, at a luxurious camping lodge that his father recently purchased.
Eager to reconnect with their old friend and enjoy a week in the majestic high mountains of the Appalachians, they all eagerly agree, immediately packing up and leaving for Tennessee.
Completely unaware of the violent and hellish future that awaits them there.
Please note that this is a very raw rundown of the Roleplay. Further details and information will be discussed between myself and my partner, whomever they be.
The characters below are the friends from the group that this Roleplay will revolve around. Please note that there are only names and pictures provided.
This is partially for the sake of the Roleplay, as I want my partners' character to properly meet them at the party and in Tennessee and learn as much as they choose to about the different characters and form bonds and so on.
Mark Krenzler (The Brother)
Jade Krenzler (The Sister)
Remember, as part of the "interactive storyline", it is up to my partner to discover and learn as much about these characters as they wish and form relationships. Both positive and negative.
This regards to my partner and the character that they shall create to incorporate into out thrilling story.
For the most part I am very flexible and have no real restrictions. Of course as you can see above I am looking for a female partner and a reliable, hardy female character.
Now, when I say reliable and hardy, I mean a steadfast, level headed, physically able, "average every-day" college girl. Not a ritzy, pampered Beverly Hills princess who's response to getting dirt on her shoes is to release an ear-splitting squeal. (I actually already have one of those in the group.)
On that same token, I also do not want her to be Xena the Warrior Princess. A 6'2 female body builder that could easily disarm and body slam a physically fit male basically nullifies a fiendish blade slayer.
-I postponed this Roleplay two or three days past when I had originally intended just for two people, one of whom still could not meet the deadline because his plate was too full, and another who I wasn't even sure was going to show.
-Aside from you @Holy Soldier, I had two other players who were being forced to wait for days on end, and if they had indeed split paths from here, then the Roleplay would have only two players left. Not very ideal for how large I had planned for this to be. (3-5 people aside from myself.)
-The last minute departures of "Burning Kitty" and "AngelofOctober" demoralized my faith in this Roleplay going very far.
-While "AngelofOctober"'s departure was techinally on me, I grew tired of their empty words. First they promised to have their character ready on Tuesday, then Wednesday, and then this morning were still not prepared. If I had continued to wait and postpone the Roleplay further, it would have been next Friday before we got this show on the road.
-My frustration at the ordeals above just literally killed my patience and drive and I said to meself "to Hell with it, this is just pure frustration for me now."
Honestly I'm unsure @AngelofOctober, we'll worry about that once everyone has their character up.
Although I can assure you it will not be warp speed" posting. But neither will it be one or two posts overall a day either. Dinnae' worry, we will iron out that small detail once we are ready for the story to begin.
Also, I would really prefer for the remaining players to have something up by no later than late tonight.
I hate to issue "deadlines" but we have 3 other people awaiting the beginning of the Roleplay, and it's a bit unfair to make them wait a-whole-nother day or two.
