I'm looking for someone that's willing to RP in a specific setting/overarching plot I tried to do as a group RP a few years ago under a different SN here. It never panned out as a group thing, but I recently came across my notes and was struck with the desire to try it again.
Before I get into that, I want to say right off the bat that this RP will potentially make you uncomfortable if you have issues with things happening to people that are 8-15, abuse/violence, and other 'trigger' or adult situations. Do not apply if you are one of those people.
Because of the nature of the RP, this needs to be done via PM.
The universe/lore for this is based on that thought up by an author named Laurell K Hamilton for her Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series. Below is basic information about the setting, and safe for work info about the plot. You do not need to know anything about the series. I can either link you to a wikia that has information about the series you can browse at your leisure, or can just info dump the information into our OOC.
That stuff aside, here's the pitch.
**Very Basic Rundown of Setting**
Vampires exist. Were-creatures are real. Magic is not just in fairy tales. This is the real world. The real world is full of monsters, legends, things of fantasy. Some are endangered, some are extinct, and some even live among us.
[City TBD], like most other cities in the US thanks to legalization of vampirism (giving them the same rights as the living) back in the early 90s, has many vampire owned/employed establishments. Sure, it still is pretty difficult to be a lycanthrope here, but it falls right in line with the rest of the country; most people don't want lycanthropes teaching their kids, or working in their offices, and certainly not treating wounds or protecting them from danger even if that paranoia and discrimination is akin to fearing someone with AIDs doing those same things. Those with magical gifts are looked at sideways by most regular people, and sometimes treated with the same level of prejudices as lycanthropes and vampires; some choose to keep their abilities to themselves and practice in secret others are open practicers because bills need to be paid and those that can raise the dead or commune with spirits are highly sought out by both private and government employees, and even a few are scared of their abilities - seeing them as curses instead of gifts. Special laws have been created to protect or act against witchcraft and other preternatural acts. Witches, vampires, and lycanthropes caught breaking those laws are executed within 48 hours of conviction as it is difficult to contain such individuals in prisons. Vampire executioners are recognized as federal marshals to allow for ease of job when bringing such convicted individuals to justice. Like most states, the [City TBD]'s police department cannot afford a new division to deal with preternatural crimes, so they make use of the Regional Preternatural Investigation Team (RPIT) for such problems; they just luck out that the local RPIT is based in their city.
**The basic plot**
Years ago, young preternatural beings disappeared. After a series of gruesome murders, the disappearances stopped and the missing youths returned. Now, not even two decades later, the disappearances have started again. Three children have disappeared in the last three months, as far as the detectives know, and the case has finally turned over to RPIT now that the preternatural connection has been revealed. The RPIT detectives are without a clue again, but they count themselves lucky that the murders haven’t started. Yet.
So, like I said, you don't have to have read the Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter series to do this with me; I am willing to info dump everything that you may need to know regarding the lore/universe if you're interested. This will be based in a city/state/region of our choosing, though I will say it does need to be in the US and that I'm most familiar with the New England area (the series takes place in St. Louis, just for reference and we can certainly use the canon city if you want.) I have some personal flare for the setting that I didn't put in the setting dump, because it doesn't have to come up; I want to discuss it with my partner first.This doesn't have to involve romance; it's mostly a murder mystery RP kind of thing. The pairings can be any kind of mix and match of humans, witches/psychic humans (long list of abilities that can come up for psychic humans), lycanthropes, or vampires.We can be detectives, private investigators, members of a lycanthrope group (the same or different) trying to figure out what's going on, witches/psychic humans looking to find loved ones, a mix of these options, or even an alternative plot in which we play individuals that were abducted.Could even double up, and play both individuals there were abducted and individuals trying to solve the abduction/murder case.
Lots of possibilities, everything can be discussed. As far as romance is concerned - it doesn't have to be there, as I said. Physical relations can be a possibility with or without romance, just like real life so keep that in mind. If you want to maybe involve romance/'adult interactions' between our characters, let me know while we're discussing things; some of the characters I have for this are non-romantic/asexual, while others have specific preferences.As far as rules go, outside of you needing to be 18+ - I'm pretty light for the rules. Give me something to work with - i.e. at least decent five sentences, though I definitely appreciate more - and try to use proper grammar and spelling. Autocorrect and errors happen, but try avoid it happening a lot and in every post.Also, be okay with doing character sheets; we can discuss how elaborate they are, but I like having something to reference rather than looking back through posts to see if I've gotten an important character fact/name/description correct.
Sorry about the walls of text; I tried to keep it as simple as possible, but wanted to make sure to have the main stuff clear enough from the start. Same goes for the froffy coloring - thought it might help highlight things better.
If you're interested in this, I would prefer you
It would help if you tell me a bit about yourself and/or if you have any initial thoughts or questions regarding the plot or setting; doing so shows me you are interested in putting forth effort as a partner and not just playing a role in the story I may tell.
