Plot? What plot.

Here we can discuss plot arcs and what we want to happen in the near and distant future

After we decide on something we'll update the 'Current Events' section in the intro tab

Cay and I were talking about having the high school reenact the witch hunts in Salem with an interesting mystery twist to it.

So! Plot. Yes.

Cass and I have been spit-balling a bit and what we've got thus far is the reenactment as cass previously stated, or like a baking competition (seeing as we have a few bakers) or fair type situation. Nothing monumental I know, but it could give this rp at least some direction

If any of you have ideas, this is the place to post 'em!

I like the baking idea. :) but I don't think my character would have much interest in the witch hunts. Not saying I don't like the idea, just not sure how either of would get involved in that.

The witch hunt thing would be cool, but it seems like it'd be a bit difficult to get everyone there for it. The fair or the baking thing seem like they'd be a touch more accessible to me, but really, I'm pretty cool with wherever we end up going with this.

idk, maybe it's trite, but the government or some other force could want to contain the town to smite. The name Van Helsing comes to mind but I've been watching Demons a lot lately.

I think the government thing, if we use it, will be a large, further in the future arc

But, it seems like we're going with the fair thing? I think it should be sorta like a farmers market situation. All the shops show off their best stuff, have an excuse to make a little extra cash and get their name out there. The townsfolk can socialize, maybe there will even be some games or a bake off

so cay and i've made a biker gang called the Cult of Domesticity, which is less of a biker gang and more of a neighborhood-pta fusion group, but biker gangs are cooler. Anyways, they run the local newspaper and would help put together farmers market events and such for the town, so we need more characters to join, maybe even be the leader because it's a highly esteemed position, so it needs a highly put together person. npcs are more than welcome if you dont want your character committed. in order to join, the character needs a two-wheeled transportation device.

I think Adam would fit nicely. Advice column, anyone? lol. I figured Adam drove a motorcycle and Howard doesn't really drive anyway.

EDIT: And I love the fair idea. Should be a lot of fun.

I also had an idea for a possible plot thing in the future. When Forget Me Not brought up Van Helsing, I got this idea that one of his descendants became a witch out of necessity and, in a fit of rage over a horrible act of a supernatural creature, created a curse. This curse called the Helsing Curse by most who know of it, causes anyone who has it to become angry and increasing violent the more they are around a supernatural. At it's worse, it causes the victim to fall into a feral state, almost unable to speak as their sole focus is to kill said supernatural. Unknowingly, when the Helsing witch cast the curse she also but it on her entire bloodline, damning each of her descendants to a life of hunting the supernatural or madness and isolation.

Of course this would be EXTREMELY bad for a community like Bluffington where most of the town is compromised of creatures, fae and other such beings. So I figured it would be almost like an outbreak of a disease as the only kind that are unaffected are Gods and it's the citizens job to find out who placed the curse in the first place.

What do you guys think about it? I have more ideas, but this is the most recent, sleep deprived fueled one.

Oh that would be perfect! Now all he needs is a vest (maybe even a tie?) embroidered with their emblem

Sleep deprivation is the greatest creative juice. I really like that idea! I think we could do a lot with it, cass agrees with me and would have said so too, but sleep is apparently more important.

I had a small idea for my character and Fox.... Would it be kind of cool to have had them meet like hundreds of years before? Or maybe a couple of times? Just spit balling the idea. I put a small intro to that in my post but it doesn't have to lead anywhere if no ones interested. :)

Heheh, I like how everyone is developing a plot between characters and Lif just knows almost anyone because she probably flirted with them in the past.

So with what's going on with Adam, I had an idea for a possible plot thing. Essentially, it would be that Adam took in so much info and skipped so many corners with the spell (which is why the writing on the pages is so frantic and crazy) that he is now in essentially a magical coma. Howard could ask for help from the town and this could bring a lot of the townspeople together. Maybe even a trip inside Adam's psyche and mind?

What do you guys think? If you don't want to do it, I still have a way to help Adam so don't worry about it. This is also another sleep deprived idea, by the way (man, I need to sleep lol)

im down for that, Pegg! It's a helluva different pace for this rp (is it really though? magical phenomenon an all ) but it should definitely be interesting
