So, I've had an idea. I've been wanting to start my own RP thread for a long while. I was talking to Colonel Mustard about it, and an idea struck me. Remember the Dark Brotherhood mission"Whodunit?" You play the assassin and have to kill off each member in any way you please?
What if we did that...but the killer is assigned by me, to be one of you?
The layout of the house is sketched. The basic idea is, you create an entirely new character, you CANNOT use an already made character, and I'll tell you why. Not only will you, the players, not know anything beyond the appearance of another player, but there will be causalities as they killer cuts his or her way through the house.
The participants are lured to the house by a common acquaintance, baiting them with the common "If you find the chest of gold, you win!" scheme. I will be DM'ing solely, so situation control will be up to me. Character interactions will be left up to you. "Winner" gets to live, quite simply.
If you'd like to join in, all you have to do is write your character's appearance, down to the dress and scars. Anything noted when you look at someone. Then, write the rest of the character sheet and send it in a PM to me.
For clarification: Only put the character's appearance on this thread, send the rest to me. That includes the "real" name.
Hope people join in! I welcome questions!
p.s. Hate to be nit-picky, but please.no were-creatures or vampires. Why? because it would be too easy for them to solve it or overpower anyone they'd come across.
So, we all sign up, you pick the killer, and only the two of you know about it? Sounds like fun.
"No were-creatures or vampires", so elves and magic are allowed? *crosses fingers*
Is this TES universe, or just generic fantasy?
Yeah, elves and magic are allowed since they're an "accepted" form of supernatural. And it's the TES universe.
Yeeesss. So in.
Right, 'public' profile is here. I'll PM you the private one later on this evening, Liz, I've got work I need to be doing for the rest of the day.
Name: Aranios Sayle
Appearance: Tall enough to suggest some Altmer blood somewhere in the family line, Aranios' face is boyishly handsome and clean-shaven. He has short blonde hair with a slight upward tuft at the front, brown eyes, a slight nick in his left ear and a winning smile. He is obviously athletic, though not as heavily muscled as a professional warrior, build more similar to that of a gymnast than a brawler. He walks with a swagger in his step, and exudes an air of cocky charm and ease.
He is always well dressed, and for this party has attired himself in a sleeveless doublet of red velvet, black trousers and a long-sleeved white shirt. He also has three rings on his fingers, and any with the ability to perceive the arcane would be able to see that they are magical in nature.
I'll sign up too.
This intrigues me.
This is a great idea, Hollow. My roommates and I used to host murder parties like this in the dark ages before the internet. Lots of fun. And costumes.
Just to be sure, the only person doing the murdering is the one you secretly assign that role, right? It’s not a free-for-all?
Exactly. If I assign KC to be the murerder, no one else can be the murderer.
I've decided The Pale instead. The swampy atmosphere would add some creepiness.
So that's one full character sheet sent in! Who's the next brave soul?
Also, don't worry about making a character fit to be a killer. If you know me, you know I like to surprise people and will pick the most inconspicuous person if possible.
On the one hand, it sounds so interesting.
On the other, it's set in Skyrim.
One last thing: Are you talking 4th era Skyrim? I'm assuming you are.
Yeah. But don't worry, I'm setting the scene entirely. Don't worry about current events or anything of the like. The whole world is set on the property of the mansion.
Dunmer, early forties. Typical red eyes, ashy grey skin. Charcoal hair in a topknot, small sideburns. Scowling face, with neck tattoos in the general shape of some daedric letters.
Red-and-gold Dunmer outfit from Dragonborn with flared sleeves, black cloth boots, and a sturdy leather belt with a Cyrodiilic steel longsword and scabbard.
Uh...thanks for posting in the thread telling us you won't be doing it XD
I overlooked it to criticize you. Just like a woman XD
No wonder I´m single!
Ok, nuff unnecessary posting
Glad to have you aboard!!!!
Breton Male in his late-thirties, appears older with graying tribal-esque hair and beard. Raw complexion, with smile wrinkles and creases beginning to show in the face.
So that's three profiles in (I'm counting Callidus' unfinished one)
In order for this to work, I'd like at least two more people. who's the next brave soul?
Why am I the only woman in the RP?!
Reminding y'all I still want this.
A little busy here!
So do I!
Kobby wanna join!
Name : Percival Devereaux
Hair Color: Reddish brown, goes down *past his ears.
Eye color: Steel gray
Build: Medium. A bit skinny at the same time though.
Kobby, take out the description and history! Remember, just the physical appearance!
Oui. Gracias :]
All I need is the rest of Callidus' profile, KC's, and we're good to go.
KC, do you mind if we start without you? i know finals are a bitch, so I can save you a spot, even if someone bursts in.
Yeah go ahead. I'll try to whip one up tonight.
Alright, the first post is going up! Oh, this is going to be long XD
Age: Late forties, early fifties.
Appearance: Most notable feature is his tail, or lack there-of. Boots is missing about three quarters of his tail. He has dark gray scales with a tan on his chin and neck that continues under his plum colored shirt. Everything about him looks worn. He is alcoholic, but has a fair amount of muscle.
Also, whoever wants to be the "traveler," go ahead.
Appearance: light brown freckles splash his face, wiry blonde hair the olor of straw cut just above his ears. Green eyes. Small, about 5'5''
Appearance: head shaved, wears a warm hat to cover hair. Wears a raggedy grey dress. Sharp Dunmeri features, dark ashen skin.
Appearance: Thin, lanky, red hair. reddish Birthmark on the underside of his chin the size of a small apple. Brown eyes.
All servants wear worn, grey clothing.
Well, since I'm here, I might as well have Enarvy as the first guest to arrive.
I do have one question though: If everyone has been invited to the mansion, with the promise of a pot of gold to be found, can we get a name for the person who invited them?
Introductions will be made at the parlor.
As soon as Rohirrim posts, we can begin officially
Rohirrim has posted. SHANKS MCGEE CAN COME OUT TO PLAY!!!
Rohirrim, what have you done with my stablehand?! Why is my coat-hanger outside? XD
Jon is outside, showing the people in. Anaya is inside, where it's dry, lol
I was gonna get into that later, but once the first murder occurs, it's encouraged that everyone makes an alliance to find the killer and the gold.
Yes, the killer can be killed. And if you suspect someone, you need to let me know, and the person know, so the appropriate posting and actions can be taken,
KC, I'm rolling lol
Attire: Black gowns and robes to allow her large pregnant belly to be comfortable.
Post a response, if anyone likes. I'll be back on in the morning.
*Looks at picture*
Now why do I get the feeling Belladonna's more than a little crazy?
That's the power of Helena Bonham Carter's picture, lol
EDIT: Okay, love y'all and whatnot, but there's only one Dunmer servant woman. Inside, with the door closed, in the study.
Please pay attention to what the servants are saying and doing, because it's sort of important to what's going on. I'm not even saying that to be an asshole, what they say and do will provide clues as to what's going on, so skipping or skimming over their placement and words isn't wise. Remember, this is a mystery, and just because the first murder hasn't happened doesn't mean you shouldn't pay attention.
Okay, go ahead and ask any questions you may have before we head to the second floor. I've got a drawing of the floors in case anyone is confused.
I'll need a few hours before I can make an appropriate reply.
Did you want me to wait for you to reply before heading upstairs?
Me too, please.
Once I get home, sure.
Any more questions? Ill be posting a response tonight.
Not from Boots! He is too intoxicated to care about anything other than immediate needs.
PLEASE don't have him pee til he reaches the urn! XD Poor Anaya lol
Oh! Just to clarify, y'all-
I have the first victim already lined up. it's none of y'all. don't worry. I want things to be fair, and want everyone to be able to have a chance at the gold. I have a throwaway character in store already.
Cool, good to know.
I'll try and get a post up tomorrow, if I can; I'm getting my arse kicked by an absolute killer of an English essay right now and I want to get that out of the way before I do any RPing.
Mkay. I'm making sure no one has any questions before we move to the last (and bestest) floor. Once that's finished, I'll give y'all a rundown of the various secret doors, passages, and hidden goodies the place has.
Physical appearance: Straight blonde hair, blue eyes, tan skin. Complete opposite of Belladonna, yet they are blood kin. Wears something blue at all times. Hair is down, wearing a silver sapphire pendant with the stone in the shape of a heart, several silver rings, all enchanted. Always has a mischievous look in her eyes.
If y'all wanna poke around or go chat up Angelina or whatever, feel free. No one should have to double up on rooms unless they want to. Talk to each other, there's several hours before the seventh bell and dinner.
OH MY GOD LOOK NEW CHARACTERS TO PLAY WITH
(Safe for work, image just too large for the forums)
Age: Appears around twenty-four
Race: Breton/Imperial mix
Appearance: Bright red-hair, deep blue eyes, very freckled. Height is around 5'4'', curvy, well-toned body. Wears dark-colored clothing, never wears dresses. Wears a single silver dagger on her hip with a fire enchantment.
So there's now eight guests...
But only seven bedrooms...
So someone's going to end up sharing?
Sure will. And since Selvia is late and getting her room, she'll share with someone.
Just FYI, probably won't be posting for the next 24-48 hours or so as I won't have any internet access. I'll sort out the dialogue with Anaya when I get back.
Also, it was the study Aranios was suggesting meeting her, not the library. Just so you know
Alright, turns out I do have internet access. I can still RP, hurrah!
KC, looks like Boots left Percival hanging lol
Sorry. Maybe I should just withdraw from the RP. I don't have the concentration for it right now. Kill Boots, turn him into an NPC, or just pretend he was never there. I don't care.
Yeah. I don't want to hold anyone up.
Okay. I'll write a post tonight, send it to you and see what you think, okay?
Is there à spot for me? You said you wanted more women so.....
KC is opting out, so of course! You've read the rules and such?
Working on it My dear....thought I might go with Rianne this one....be back with char sheet
Nooooo no no, you don't want a known character. That's one of the rules, minque. You gave to make up a new character.
Yeah, I know.
Natasha, no last name, imperial/Dunmer....24years old....
Cool. You can make your intro post whenever just remember it's raining heavily. And to send me the rest of the sheet in a PM.
I Will.....now it's kinda late here and I need to think about My char...so maybe I'll need some more time are you cool with that?
After minque, everyone, that's enough people.
Okay...we can start again lol
*Collectively prods everyone*
Come on guys.
*Prods everyone again*
I'd like it if someone else posted, but if no one else does by tonight, tomorrow I'll post a move along and go to the dinner.
I have a question on behalf on Enarvy: Is it considered bad manners to use telekinesis at the dinner table? He's not really one for being served.
Not at all. Also, Angelina made it a point to sit next to him.
Heh, I'd been considering asking about the seating arrangements.
It's a long table, able to seat about ten people. Belladonna is at the head. Anyone else an sit where they like.
I post soon
Right, I've stopped being snowed under with a combination of job and essays. Let me have this weekend to recover, then I will post. Promise.
I'll probably post something this evening. Tomorrow at the latest.
What Cal-Boy said.
Tomorrow, definitely tomorrow.
No one posted lol
Okay, so Colonel is out, Silence is out, KC is out, that leaves Rohirrim, KoB and Callidus, plus myself.
Now, we can either continue, or no. I'm leaving it up to y'all.
I'll join again, only if there is interest though.
Minque is never here
Percival isn't sitting next to anyone specific, so anyone can interact with him
Minque never sent me anything about her character, so she wasn't officially in the RP. She only expressed interest.
How about this, if I up the ante on the stakes? The winner of this gets a prize. That's right, if you figure out who the killer is, bring me evidence AND make it to the final scene, then you get a prize from me.
Ooh what's the prize?
Gehhhhhhh.....if y'all were ladies or men who fancied jewelry, I'd handmake you some jewelry, but lol
Maybe a handwritten letter? A personalized story? I don't know, I'M NOT TALENTED!
All those prizes seem nice.
What about brownies
If I wasn't sure that they'd go bad on the way to wherever they were headed, I'd so do that, lol
