Mythos Complex is rated M because Ru was too lazy to figure out what it actually fit.
However, the following themes may or may not occur in this RP: extreme violence (namely via monsters); various deaths, including suicides; adult themes, including language and possible sexual encounters (sexual encounters depends on the characters and this still does not permit cybering, for Ru does not like that and it's a no no on RPA); and drug use (this will only occur if there is a character who enters as a druggy, otherwise it will not be there).
For sure occurring themes: extreme and excessive violence; deaths and suicides; excessive language; and sexual tension (I am not sure it will go passed that, but I listed sexual encounters just in case).
Flittering about in the jagged, rough air of the downtown region are many rumors concerning the apartment complex known as Mythos Complex and the suspicious, gruesome deaths of its inhabitants. Quite frequently dead bodies are found outside of the building where it appears the renter thrusted themselves out of their window to their demise against the cold, hard, unforgiving concrete that bashed their face into their skulls. Occasionally the resident is found in worse conditions even the most daring of journalists can't stomach to speak of. Numerous reports have been made of these curious incidents only for the investigators to conclude the victim committed suicide, but with over fifty reports within the last year leading to the same conclusion it leads one to wonder… why? And this only addresses one of the smaller, yes, smaller as in less important, rumors that comes along with living anywhere near Mythos Complex. The other rumors, however, are special.
Ghost stories, most may insist. Throughout the complex’s history residents had complained about hearing mysterious voices urging them to leave the vicinity immediately, though whether they were threatening or warning them varied on the apartment number. The most bizarre reports expressed that they were hearing noises they had never heard before residing her; these noises they claimed to be that of some sort of monster they felt may kill them if not dealt with immediately. With this said, the majority of the locals have concluded these ghost stories and monster tales to be accurate and decided that they must be the cause for the deaths over the years, but none were ever courageous enough to face it.
The only people who dare to live in Mythos Complex are the daring, the poor, and the skeptical.
Which one are you?
It is a survival horror concerning monsters and the supernatural, so compare it to horror movies like that, if you have seen such kind. The most common reoccurring scenes in those are the ones I listed as for sure occurring, though I acknowledge plenty of those movies DO have sex scenes. I am just not sure if any sex would actually happen, since that depends on the players.
In this RP, your character is a resident of Mythos Complex and is presented the chance to finally get rid of these heathens living deep below your home. Obviously, if you choose not to follow then the RP is quite boring, now, isn't it? So, it is highly preferred that you choose to follow the group.
Your goals: destroy the monsters, stop the curse, and survive.
If you want your character to see something, i.e. a spirit, then PM me because I control all spirits, monsters, etc. encounters.
NO CHARACTERS HAVE ANY PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH MONSTERS. The players will meet the monsters IN Mythos Complex during this RP when the group meets up with the monsters and not before. Your character is welcome to have had a past experience with spirits, however, just not monsters.
-->All RPA rules apply.
-->If you are going to be a slow RPer, then inform me. If you are going to leave, tell me. If you are going to be gone a week, THEN TELL ME. Ru HATES it when someone just DISAPPEARS from a RP and if you do not inform me ahead of time or within two weeks of disappearing then I will KILL YOUR CHARACTER.
-->Ru = GM. GM = God. Thus, listen to Ru.
-->I absolutely adore literacy, seriously. With this said, I am probably more likely to be an ass and kill you off if you make lazy, half-assed posts just outta pure anger. I'm not going to state how much I want per post (though, I will give you a hint, Ru usually requires two paragraphs per post... not 2-3 sentence wimpy paragraphs either).
-->A DIE MUST BE ROLLED EVERY TURN PER CHARACTER.
1D20 must be rolled per character, which means ONE twenty-sided die must be rolled per character. If you have two characters, then it would be 2D20 instead, got it? This will be explained better in How to Play.
If the RPA dice rolling system doesn't work, then use this
. The last dice is the D20 we are using. RPA Dice Rolling is explained in Dice Rolling and Sanity Points.
-->ANYONE CAN JOIN AT ANY TIME. ALWAYS ACCEPTING. When rooms are out, however, you MUST play a character not from Mythos Complex or someone who is rooming with a WILLING player; no players are obligated to take in roomies.
-->One character per player, excluding the GM. You may make a new character upon your own character's death.
-->Tune aka La di da (or whatever she changes her name to) is my co-GM. She won't be accepting profiles, but anything she says is valid.
-->Only I can implement dice roll results. So, when one of my posts states so-and-so received a result only my post is allowed to act on it and put forth the result.
-->Only one roll per round. A round would be from my post to the next one of my posts. So, if you end up posting more than once after one of my posts, but before the next one I make, you would only put your dice roll in the first post, as I will ignore any rolls after that one in my next post.
-->ONLY I CONTROL PARANORMAL EVENTS. ONLY I IMPLEMENT DICE ROLL RESULTS. GO AGAINST THIS AND YOUR CHARACTER WILL BE INSTANTLY TERMINATED.
-->If your character dies in the game you are allowed to create a new one, however it does not mean you get to keep the same room; this game is first come first serve.
First off, creating your character. Simply fill out the character sheet that is at the bottom of this post, post it here, and wait for Ru to respond. The more details, the better.
Now, actually playing in the campaign.
PLEASE USE THIS EXACT CODE. I DID NOT MAKE MY CHARACTER SHEETS PRETTY LOOKING FOR YOU TO RUIN THEM.
And I know that it may be a bit much, but the better I know your character the better chance I have at making this a scary campaign.

Hey, the name's Howl. Howl Osborne to be exact but that doesn't really matter right
now, does it?
So, I'm a... I guess you could say resident at this place called Mythos Dormitory. For
some weird reason they chose me to advertise this place properly.. HA! Are they in
for a shock. Only come here if you seek out adventure and don't mind being scared
shitless just don't tell them I told ya that, a'right? That might get me kicked out and
my folks would be ticked. So keep this between you and me.
I mean... it looks nice and all but it's a bummer. It's pretty much a place parents send
their kids so someone else takes care of them and they'll still go to school. It'd be kinda
sad if you didn't go to school being as all the schools are right across the street! Ironic
huh? You'd think it'd be on some street with a lame name like "School St." too, right?
Wrong. It's on Walnut Road... I'd honestly prefer School St. Anyway...
There's three buildings on campus. Two actual dorms then the main building. Where
you go is based off of your sex and the availability. Like... if you're a girl you go to the
left in the girl's dorm, the right the boy's, get it? The middle is the main office with the
office, der, and a library for some dumb reason. The dorm buildings have uh... I believe
it's what? Three flights? Originally the older kids had the top flight cause they're "cooler"
but the office got fed up with it so if there's an available room you got it! That simple.
Even if they put a little ten year old kid with some nineteen year old, they didn't care.
Oh, I forgot. It's for "all ages". Pretty stupid, huh? Anyway... I'm making this shitty
place sound freakin' sweet! They must be proud of me.
Now... wanna know what's wrong with it? Well... besides the stuck up bitches 'round
the place and the crappy office workers... they say it's haunted. Now, I'm not one to
believe in that crap but I can't help but get suspicious, ya know? I mean, maybe
they are hiding something in the place or maybe people just wanna get us all riled
up. Either way... there's something wrong with it especially on the top floor. Thus far,
in my... four years? of living here, four kids have committed suicide and three were
found dead somewhere round campus. Creepy huh? They can't figure out why.
Well, it's YOUR choice'ta believe me or not and your parents choice'ta have your
ass here. If ya see me around, wave.
