    Default [M/OOC] Night of the Raven (Mystery/Supernatural)



    Once upon a midnight dreary,
    While I pondered, weak and weary,
    Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
    While I nodded, nearly napping,
    Suddenly there came a tapping,
    As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
    "Tis some visitor," I muttered, "tapping at my chamber door-
    Only this and nothing more."



    October the Eleventh, Eighteen Forty-Nine

    It has been three days since the funeral. Still I am in shock. The procession was a simple one, and hardly anyone gathered to pay respects. There was not even a headstone to mark his grave. Unfitting for such an inspired man.

    Even in my grief, I must prepare for the proceedings in the coming weeks. No doubt word of his passing has spread amongst our brethren, but All Hallow's Eve is a time of joy. It need not be marred with tears and sorrow. It is a night of celebration, when all our kin may meet in peace. I hear there shall be even more guests than ever before. Just the thought of it fills my soul with anticipation.

    I wish you could be here to see this, my love.



    THE PLOT

    So if you didn't pick up on the references, this is going to be a spooky, Halloween-themed, Edgar Allan Poe inspired RP. Your character, one of the many supernatural creatures in hiding throughout 19th-century America, has received word of a gathering in Baltimore, Maryland, on the night of All Hallows Eve. It is a gathering of the creatures of the night, whether fey, spirit, undead, or anything in between. A celebration of the supernatural, and a place to relax from the scrutiny of mortal eyes.

    But as you arrive at your host's mansion, the site of the entertainment, the evening begins to take a dark turn. Guests begin to go missing, and whispers of deviance and thievery spread amongst the party-goers. Will the celebration be disturbed by unseen forces, or will the mystery be solved before the night's end?

    Looks like you've got an awesome roleplay started! If you would like to advertise for more members, here are some ways to do so!

    First off, there's the Roleplay of the Week. This is displayed on the website's home page as well as on the side bar of the forum. If you think it might help then we implore you to do so! We are always looking for new RP's to advertise. (No, really. We are. Always.) If you would like a little bit more information, or even an example, you can view that here.

    One of the requirements for a RP of the Week submission is that you have a banner. If you're not artistically inclined, however, do not fear! We have several amazing artists on the site who will make one for you. Simply post here.

    Next, you can post in this thread and the staff will display your role-play in their signatures.

    Also feel free to post in the Roleplay Directory. This is a thread that anyone can view at any time to see roleplays that are currently seeking and accepting members.

    Guess who has the entire works of Poe in one volume, an ungodly amount of mythological knowledge, and no current RPs? Hint:



    I'll have to make a character tomorrow though since it's like 1AM and I have to be on the road in eight hours for class

    Update: Decided on gargoyle but still working on a sheet

    Name: Albina Quercus
    Age: 57, though she'll never admit it and you'd never guess.
    Race: nymph
    Appearance:
    Personality: Like most nymphs, Albina has a mischievous streak, but she generally exhibits a gentle and sunny disposition. The pranks and tricks she plays on humans are never harmful. They mostly serve as a means to distract anyone and everyone who passes through her neck of the woods in order to lead them away from her tree.
    Skills: Green Thumb: Albina is a natural gardener, and any plant she tends to is sure to thrive. Woody Doppelganger: She can also transform into a replica of her soul tree. This does not teleport her tree, but merely imitates it to serve as a disguise. (I point this out because actual transportation of the tree would be way too overpowered.) Sparrowtongue: Nymphs can communicate with all living entities (plants included), but animals are the only mortal creatures nymphs trust. While Albina avoids humans, she often works with animals and can request favors of them--especially birds.
    Other: Her name, which literally means "white oak," is a reference to her soul tree. She is bound to this tree and can only leave it temporarily. Nymphs typically remain close to their soul trees in order to guard them, because any damage to the tree will likely kill its nymph.

    It's so difficult to choose a favorite POEm, but "A Dream Within a Dream" is an excellent candidate.
