PostSubject: Mystery Roleplay   Wed May 29, 2013 6:42 pm

So I was inspired by a game one of my buddies was in, and I want to do something similar here. I know how I want to run it, and I feel like it'll be fun. However, for the experience I want to create, the players won't know what this is all about until we start.

I would ideally like to run this with 2-4 people, 3 being the sweet spot. I want to keep this roleplay fairly concise, and it's easier with fewer people. It also makes it asier on me, as I'm not very experienced actually running a roleplay, I usually just participate.

Interested? Here's the deets. The setting is modern day Toronto. You are a person on the subway in the city. It's one of those subways that has no division between cars, and when it's on a straight track, you can see all the way from end to end. You are sitting/standing in the back of the subway. That's all you have to work with.

When you submit your character, I reserve the right to make tweaks if I find something I feel I have to tweak.

Character Sheet:

Name:

Age:

Sex:

Picture (Optional):

Occupation:

Bio (Tell us about your character. Who they are, what they've been through, how they are, etc. Also, feel free to talk about their family/people important to them. If you would like to include details that you'd like to keep secret, just PM me.):

Items (Here you include anything your character has on them. They have to fit with who your character is. Be descriptive. If you don't say you have it here, you don't have it.):

Name: Jayde

Age: 19

Sex: Female

Picture (Optional): n/a

Occupation: n/a

Bio: She is technically an "orphan" but does not talk about her past to anyone. She is an only child. Her father was in jail for most of her life, but when he was released he killed her mother before committing suicide. She is very smart but dropped out of high school as a sophomore (right after her parents died). Jayde did not drop out right away. She held out the rest of her freshman year. Her grades dropped quickly and she joined the "stoners" and "drinkers". When she first attended high school, she was the "popular" girl who everyone knew and loved. Now, she is constantly on the move, and nobody knows her story. She is withdrawn and hates social situations. She is very cold and sarcastic, but on the inside, she listens and takes to heart what people say. Her clutch was drinking at first, but now it is music. She writes, listens, and plays music. Contrary to her behavior and passions, her appearance is very normal. Though she does wear a lot of black, she still looks like the "popular" girl. People do not immediately disregard her, or tag her as "that girl". She has long dark brown hair and golden-brown eyes. She captures the attention of many, but doesn't pay much attention.

Items: Phone-in this modern day, everyone has a smartphone. Hers is NOT an iphone but an android. It has little doodles on the back and is kept very private. (this is what she is mostly seen on, whether it is for music, distraction, or just to avoid people)
Earbuds-she is normally wearing mostly black, but her earbuds are always the burst of color on her. She has 3 different pairs: pink, blue, and red. (these are almost always in her ears, they either connect to her phone or her ipod, no one really knows or cares)
Ipod- this is an old version of the apple ipod touch. It is black.(She is assumed to have this on her, but she rarely takes it out)
Notepad-not really small but not large either. It is black and is kept very safe. She never lets anyone see it. (She writes her music in this mostly but sometimes she doodles or writes little notes. These are where you can see the true Jayde.)
Pen-black. (She is rarely seen with any other color.)
An over-the-shoulder bag- black, and not too bulky. (She keeps her notepad in this most of the time.)

(I really liked this Character and was sad I couldn't use her! So here's an opportunity!)

GABRIELLE "GABBY" BARKER
NAME: Gabrielle "Gabby" Barker

GENDER: Female

AGE:
17

APPEARANCE: Gabrielle feels like she is the shortest girl for her age. She is 5'3, barely cutting the height difference between child and teenager, even though she is 17 years old. To compensate for this height, she wears her long, bushy hair down as many times as she could, framing her face to make her appear older than her height otherwise suggests. Makeup is usually worn when she has to get ready for something important or greet someone who she she would fear cringe at the sight of her naked face. Other than that, her face is normally clear of any makeup. Her eyes are a luminous hazel, a speckle or green or two mixed into them, not that anyone really notices that factor. Her attire assist of body-fitting dresses, also a habit she took on to make herself look older than she is. Oddly enough, Gabby will never be caught walking in any heel of any sort, whether it goes with her outfit or not. She simply can't walk in them.

PERSONALITY: Exaggerated and quiet, letting her expressions speak for her. She is attentive to any and everything that someone relays to her, nodding, smiling, or quickly confirming that she either understands or does not. Not a bucket of bolts but more of hidden curious: the one that always raises their hand at the simplest of questions. She is always found accurately expressing what she wants to say by giving the right facial expression or body gesture for it. Animated, in short. She doesn't like being the center of attention or butt of a conversation, but is always quick to be the listener. She can sometimes be extremely stubborn, but will learn to squash the debate or argument with a quick grin.

BIO/HISTORY: Gabrielle was born into a family of 3, being the youngest of all the children. She lived the spoiled life, receiving gifts from her parent's for absolutely no reason and being all too happy to accept them. She got along fairly with her two older brothers, though having staying in the house with that was male dominant, it made way for her to become something of a tomboy herself. When she started high school, it was time for her to drop the baggy pants and shorts and actually look the part of female more than acting it. Never having been kissed except one time at a park in which the guy nearly ate her face, Gabrielle stuck to hanging around females and females only, a direct change in how she was raised.

With her brothers both off to college themselves, she made something of her life without the influence of the boys, starting with Art Class: A slab of plaster opened up a window of opportunity, and the talent seemed feminine enough, so she spent most of her time in a room or in a study, thinking of her next piece. From time to time, she was asked to spend time and hang out with the girls, one mostly being pleas from her best friend Katie Slocum. The only time she agreed, however, was when it involved food or movies, because Katie was a guy person and Gabby was...not.

Art being the only thing she could express her opinions through, Gabby submitted certain pieces she believed was fair for being worth something, the others being nothing but statues in her room as a reminder of her mistakes and potential to do better. The art somewhat got her shoved into the second lowest rung on the Popularity Pyramid, which started the influence of the clothes she wear: from tank tops to dresses, skirts, and slacks. During the third year of her ongoing crush with her fellow Art classmate, Paul Maddox, she finally succumbs to her weaknesses and goes with him to an Art Show hosted by a big time art buyer by the name of Gertrude Merxi. She took a tiny, plaster sculpture of the mocking bird with her, and Merxi immediately fell in love. Now with over 4 of her art sold to Merxi, Gabby's innate eye of art at such a young age reached the ears of more and more art buyers, though she never really made any pieces unless her Art Class asked for them.

ITEMS:
Hair necessities: A brush, A flat iron, Hair s ray, and a Water bottle.
An IPhone with a cracked screen and it's charger.
A half-empty sketch book with a box of pencils and 3 Sharpies.
Half a corner of sandpaper.
2 boxes of Animal Crackers.

I'll save a spot here anyway. If I don't post a CS by tonight, give the spot to somebody else ^^;

NO MORE MYSTERY!!!

http://agasaria.forumotion.com/t91-awakening-part-1-to-hell-and-back#1393

There is the first post everyone, go ahead and start it up.

I will leave sign ups open for one more day. If someone still wants to join, they have until tomorrow night to post a character sheet. At that point, the story will be ready to officially pick up steam and no one else can join until part 2. Which reminds me, yes, there will be a part 2 and a part 3, but they will be different genres. I will post new sign ups for each of those chapters when they are about to start.

Have fun!

Mostly, but there will be a few differences. Different genres, so different character sheets.

Well the character sheet itself kinda has a spoiler in it, so I'll PM it to you, and you can just PM me your character, or you can just save it elsewhere.
