What do you really know about what goes bump in the night?
Image You’ve been hearing stories about bloodsucking vampires and flying witches since you learned how to walk. But what if they weren't just stories? All legends have to come from somewhere. Of course, most of these stories have twisted and distorted, so none of the legends are completely true, some have even been changed beyond recognition.
If these things really do exist, why don’t we know about them? It’s simple. When children tell their parents there is a monster under the bed, or someone in the closet, their accusations are shrugged off. Children tend to be much more open minded about this sort of thing, of course. At that age, believing in mythical beings is considered healthy, good for the imagination, normal.

Once you reach your teenage years, however, you realize that these things are all too impossible to be true. Where is the proof, the scientific facts? If you don’t see it yourself, then it is fake, just another story to be told around the campfire. That isn't to say that people don’t see these things. It is uncommon, of course, for most are good at covering their tracks, but not unusual. People always react in different ways. Some people’s minds can’t decipher it, the impossible and terrifying images they see. These people tend to shrug it off as ‘seeing things’, or their brain slowly changes the memory, until they just see a human in the memory, or nothing at all.

Others have tried to tell others, warn them. Most of these people are silenced first, but those who aren't usually all end up in one place – a mental hospital. A lot of people who have seen creatures tend to be diagnosed with schizophrenia, because of course, if someone sees something too impossible to be true, then it isn't true, and therefore the most logical situation must be correct.

These creatures are out there. Some of them are harmless, but most of them could kill you in an instant, and most of them have the perfect disguise of a human body. The only thing keeping them at bay are the few people who believe in monsters, and feel it their duty to kill it. There aren’t many left – most of them die young, and not many choose a dangerous life for their children. So they choose to tell them the lies children across the world are hearing– that there are no monsters, no reason to be afraid of the dark, even though they know better.

The town of Intimsake is known throughout these monster hunters as one of the most magically populated towns in America. Humans live among these mythical beings, not knowing that they live in a slaughter house, and that they’re the meat. Any monster hunter that takes a stroll through will most likely be dead by morning. Only the stupid or reckless hunters visit this place, and rarely get back out alive. As soon as a supernatural creature finds out you're a monster hunter, you're screwed. Monsters don’t tend to like hunters, see – they’re not too keen on people who kill their family for a living, except of course, hunters don't get paid. Though, a lot of monsters who have never encountered hunters don't even know people like them exist.

» One; you can have as many characters as you want, as long as you keep the gender roles even, so if you want two characters they must be the opposite genders.
» Two; Drama is welcome, but keep it out of the OOC. Also, no changing, killing, seriously wounding etc. another person's character without first asking permission.
» Three; This is an easy roleplay to God-Mod in - don't do it or I will track you down and give out to you. Not literally, but seriously, no witches who always get perfect spells done in ten minutes, no perfect aim, no super strong/brave character who never feels fear or pain, no character who always manages to dodge bullets, no perfect aim. Got that? Good.
» Four; As far as reservations go, I shall give you twenty four hours unless asked for more or a WIP is up. You can only reserve up to three characters at a time.
» Five; If you have any questions ask. And yes, this is a rule, because I don't want people assuming things they can't do, or not knowing things they should, etc. Oh, and check the OOC often, there will be important stuff posted there every now and again.
» Six; This is semi-literate, which means no less than three hundred words a post.
» Seven; For the character sheet; go crazy, make it colourful, wth pictures, etc. { the better it looks, the more likely it is to be accepted. }

I would love for you to add more (like seriously, seriously love), e.g. likes, dislikes, fears, relationships, strengths, weaknesses, opinions on vampires/werewolves/witches/hunters, etc., but the ones in bold are the required ones.
» Nine; Include your favourite colour in your reservation so I know you have read the rules.
» Ten; Have fun? I don't know, I just thought this should have ten rules. Oh, and please note that I have the right to change the rules, or anything else at anytime. I AM GOD, muahahaha.
» Eleven; Another one, because I remembered something, hooray! I gave all siblings a surname so not to avoid confusion, and all love interests, etc., given can change through the course of the roleplay, these are just who your character starts of liking, etc.
» Twelve; Oh, & fun fact: feel free to swear and sex it up, but fade to black. We really don't need to know about that. Uch.
» Thirteen; Yupp, another rule. I MAKE FIRST POST. Got it? Good.
