Silver Chronicles (Paranormal Hunters Rp)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby RydeDawg on Sun Mar 18, 2012 7:09 pm

"Ever since man has walked out of their warm safe caves there has always been a struggle with stronger more powerful beings for survival. Though what these beings didn’t count on was that Man was blessed with two things that set him apart. Man was clever and their will for life was unmatched. Thus began the wars with “Monsters” from the woolly mammoth to more sinister creatures. The kind of creatures that, like how the stories say, go bump in the night along with those tall tales grandparents would recite. Humans needed to bridge that gap of power so they created weapons like bows, spears, and swords to fight these beings. Always a losing battle unless the human would outsmart those monsters. And those humans who got good at killing these monsters would be known as hunters. Stalking, praying, and killing on the same creatures who did the same to man, and as the years passed so did human hunting skills. Devolving stronger and better weapons due to wars which only thinned the line between the hunter and the pray. But as man’s understanding of science grew so did his disbelief in the creatures that once haunted his ancestors. The Para and Supernatural activity of ghosts, goblins, and witches all went dark of human understanding. The creatures like Bigfoot, Nessie, and thunderbird all just legends. But there are those that know the truth. That these monsters are still out there and the darkness that we humans have placed them in has only made them that much more dangerous. That’s what we’re here for. To protect people from the evil that still exists in this world. And keep their miserable little world normal so society can continue as a whole. We work in the shadows so that we don’t disturb the peace of people’s minds. We Hunt in the shadows because that’s where our pray hides. When those beings go bump in the night we’re the ones that go bang. What lies before you now is the opportunity to do more good in your life then you could imagine. A calling that goes above and beyond the call of duty for any one nation, and a true way to connect with your ancestors. We hunt. We kill. We Protect. We are God’s light in the darkness and we shall overcome. Welcome to America’s Federally owned Monster Hunting agency. Welcome to Silver." Yours Truly, John Smith


So it seems you have received a letter from the mysterious, John Smith. One would call that an honor if they knew who that was and what "Silver" was. Well if your an experienced Monster Hunter then you just might have an idea. Long ago a secret society with no name was established in the American Colonies when the English crown still had control. These men and women were trained hunters and detectives of the paranormal whose job it was to protect the people from the mysterious creatures of the night that the colonies may have had to deal with. A branch of an already existing secret society with no name that traces it's roots to medieval europe. Where in medieval europe? Well, no one really knows that. Though after America cut it's ties with Britain during the American Revolutionary War it seemed the secret society was here to stay. Staying funded by the money the government would funnel into the organization and it's members. Though denying the existence all together for the sake of keeping society as normal as it could be. As normal as a society could stay with the existence of creatures of all kinds. From folk lore to cryptozoology.

"We have no name because we don't exist. The government gives us the money and the connections then we just have to hope for the best. If we should find our assess caught up in some deep shit then that same government isn't going to cover for us. We keep to the shadows because thats where our pray likes to hide. We hunt in secret because we try to keep everyone's miserable life as normal as possible. When things go bump in the night we go bang. But if you want to call us something--call us Silver." --Member of Silver.


Setting: So the setting of the story will take place in 19th Century America. Around the year 1858 just after Japan has opened it's borders for Trade to America and only a few short years away from the Civil War. England is going through it's Victorian Age, America is known for it's Wild West, and Japan is still Feudal. Weapons are becoming more advanced. What went from single shot muskets goes into Colt's lever action rifles and single action revolvers. In the roleplay you take on the persona of a Monster Hunter who has either been a member of Silver or is becoming a member of Silver. Solving cases of different monster related actives. From the popular Vampires and Werewolves to hunting down creatures of Native American myth and tales. As well as Bigfoot, Thunderbird, Yeti, and other possibly large animals. Don't be fooled though because real magic is active in this universe still. Silver solving cases where Slaves have killed both masters and innocent people using voodoo as a tool of revenge. Demons are Hellish beings that like to play Human in order to steal souls.Vampires come in different versions with different weaknesses, but for one thing their body doesn't just turn to dust or fade away. So hunters have been hung for Murder when being unlucky enough to get caught by local authorities. A hunter might see a Vampire but the police only see a person. So Hunters need to cover their tracks. A few missions might be placed in Japan as Silver will be collecting hunters from around the world as America becomes a melting pot and immigrants may be bringing their magic and monsters with them.

So do you have what it takes to be a member of Silver?

Count me in on this. Likely to be playing an Asian hunter who uses traditional weapons and tactics.

I'm interested, I enjoy the paranormal genre and don't get the opportunity to play the hunter often, if at all.

Sounds great I would like to start seeing attempts for profiles up. Now I don't really have a preset profile that I want from anyone but I do ask that you make the profile well organized and detailed. Keep within the stories timeline and don't pick clothes or weapons that wouldn't be found in the year 1858. So that means doing research. I don't want to see a rolling block rifle, or colts SAA Army revolver. While there may not be as many weapons in 1858 then in the 1860s we will get into those years in the story if everything goes well. And if things go exceptionally well then the rp may bloom into a series of Historical Fiction mixed with Folklore. Going into the 20th century with characters such as Tesla and Edgar Cayce and maybe into the 21st century or maybe further backwards into the past.

Ryde, when you get a moment could you post a character format for us to use? Or a page, preferably.

Is there a tab/forum page we're submitting these bios to? Or are we simply just shooting you a PM?
