A Dance of Darkness

A Dance of Darkness


Well, the place seemed innocent enough. It isn't. The ones who dwell in those toys- They are Role Keepers. And now you have to participate in a game- A game where only the strong survive.

725 readers have visited A Dance of Darkness since FallenSeraphim37 created it.


Now there is a shop that only a few had seen. The most who have seen or heard it had ignored it. But then a few daring people went into it. It was a basic toy shop, really- It was filled with stuffed animals and dolls. The shop keeper was odd. He would give out a bracelet that had a chain attached to it with a certain title engraved on it to whoever got one of the toys.

The strangest thing was- If you pulled on the chain, the toy would reveal its true form- Its true form as a Role Keeper. You must participate in the game- Or else your own Role Keeper will be forced to kill you. While this would strengthen your Role Keeper, you would lose your life. And if by any chance your Role Keeper became attached to you romantically, it might kill itself.

Now, let's move on to the Role Keepers, shall we?
