((PLEASE READ ENTIRE JOURNAL…INFO @ BOTTOM IS IMPORTANTEDIT: DEC 2, 2012: Everyone has until Monday, 11:59pm December 3 to get in your applications. The paranoia begins...December 4 MUAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA))
*Places Lafou the python back into his tank and chuckles* Since becoming a Voodoo demi-god, I've felt the insatiable need to put my powers to the test…to see just what I can do. I've decided…I want to play a game…
*Shadow holds a rat by its tail over Lafou's tank and then drops it in. Lafou bites and crushes the rat before eating it*
Ah, but what game is a game without rules? *Looks to one of the loa Voodoo dolls* Cheat? Me? Of course not! But I won't need to if the plan goes well *rubs his hands together*
BEWARE you goodie goodie two-shoes! You rich fat cats! You spoiled rotten scoundrels! You will ALL PAY! While you go a wassailing and preparing for your CHRISTMAS celebrations…I've decided to offer a little Christmas SPIRIT of my own! MERRY CHRISTMAS, you FOOLS! What will you be getting from me? HA! If you SURVIVE, you get the satisfaction of knowing you truly CAN defeat face the worst without your petty spells, handy tools, or special gifts. YOU shall be as helpless as babes with nothing and nobody to help you! HAHAHA will you SURVIVE to wish your loved ones a MERRY CHRISTMAS?! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
*Shadow laughs evilly in the background…soon followed by all the loa masks and Voodoo dolls*
((Gonna try to say this in character but will OOC to clarify things. Think of this like a Disney version of "Saw" and "Are You Scared?"))
Ah yes, the rules:
1. All magic abilities, special tricks, and tools possessed on each victim shall be rendered gone and useless! ALL of you must face this game as mere pathetic humans…no more special than the lowest nobody.
((So there will be no magic items or usage. Just the ingenuity and wit of each player. The tools for each obstacle or puzzle will be provided in some way. Likely riddles and such will be provided if it's not entirely clear where your key tools and items are. Each stage's setting will also be chosen by the villain accordingly until the victim finally finds his/her way out. Don't worry…we'll be noting each other constantly to be sure we can all agree what happens when. All characters are free from death but will likely be harmed in some way, via bumps and bruises or gashes and bloody cuts and broken bones. Only the villain decides when the stage is a Freedom stage…but we will discuss it in notes.))
2. The series of obstacles must be faced ALONE! You will have NOBODY to hear you scream and nobody to rescue you. You must rescue yourself or you will PERISH!
((Each character will be facing their deepest fears and discomforts in a series of stages. As we said…no one dies per rp rules, but the characters must somehow face these obstacles and solve these puzzles to get to the next stage and closer to freedom. To us, it's nothing…but to them, it's life or death.
3. As mentioned, I will decide what your world will be and what shall be in it!
((Each villain is given a certain number of victims, depending on how many rper's want to play with us. The villain decides what each setting will be, any booby traps, if any, through each stage of the game. Victims are restricted to only what is in those settings. Pay careful attention to the descriptions each villain gives. While the game itself is not timed, there may be booby traps on some stages that may make your decisions time-sensitive…like a room flooding for Pocahontas, or an aquarium leaking for Flounder [I know he doesn't have a player], or a puzzle, such as in Goonies where a mistake will cost the player space or make it harder to get to the door. Also be aware of YOUR appearance. The villain in charge may change what you look like for a particular stage…and be careful of temptations. Again, don't worry…we will be noting each other often so players are aware of what's going on and can add input and give permission for certain events))
4. You will never know when I'll be coming for YOU!!!!!
((This is more of an OOC comment sort of journal. If you would like your character to be in this game, say so…I'll post a thing to fill out at the bottom so we know what to work with. REMEMBER, YOU know this is going to happen but you character has NO idea. This will NOT be occurring in the chat room at ALL. You also don't know WHEN your villain will strike. At ANY random point, your villain [the one we decide ends up with you] will attack on your character's comment section [normally knocked unconscious or kidnapped with a bag over your head or whatever] and you will be placed in your first stage. You will NOT be noted when this will happen. It's a SURPRISE Muahaha! You will be noted afterwards
NOTE: Keep in mind that this game does NOT have to affect your other threads or your chat games. Chats can go on as normal…Your regular threads can also go on as normal unless you personally choose to have it so. However, if you journal your placement in the game…remember, no one can help you and the game will continue in the original comment thread…so be sure to remind people, if you journal your game placement or update your game placement via the journal, remind them that this is something your character must do alone…or even link them to the journal of the villain running your game…in case they forgot and aren't playing the game themselves.
Likewise, if after your game is finished, you don't have to even acknowledge it happened unless you would like to do so))
((ONE last OOC msg for this journal. Comment below OOC to let us know your character will be in the game…. I will update as often as possible. You have one week, starting Nov 27th [USA time] until the 3rd of December [USA time]. Which means on the 4th…we will be randomly assigning your character to one of 2 or 3 villains [as a third villain will be arriving if the list of players is very large].
Here's what we need from you:
What Makes Them the Most Uncomfortable/Most Emotionally Disturbing Thing:
Things They Find Difficult/Greatest Weaknesses:
Obviously we know your name but it's for organization purposes. Weaknesses is similar to your character flaws but more in depth…what weaknesses do they have that can be used against them? Remember, we'll gladly note you as the game goes on so we can all agree and have a fun time with this creepy game. Anyone is welcome to "sacrifice" their characters to the game LOL, I mean, make them victims… Even villains are allowed to be offered up to play…just be sure you give us something to work with so the game isn't boring. Just remember, after the characters are divvied, you will have no knowledge WHEN you'll be hit….but after your hit, the noting will begin to make gameplay easier
If you have any questions…just ask…even in the comments and we'll fill you in.))
Merry Christmas…and have FUN HAHAHAHAHAAHA!
