Bad Things

Bad Things

0 INK

Based off the HBO hit show True Blood, Bad Things, explores the imagination of it's fans and even people who never watched as well. All characters and plots are to be original and inspired by the show.

1,570 readers have visited Bad Things since DEEReye created it.

Introduction

In the world of True Blood, vampires have recently come out of the coffin due to the creation of synthetic blood by the Japanese called TruBlood. Humans around the world are uneasy about creatures of horror stories being real and even demanding rights that the humans themselves enjoy. It also raises the question about what else is out there but just isn't in the light. The only thing that is certain is that the modern world is in for a struggle when it comes to dealing with the supernatural.

Races
Races: Humans, Vampires, Shifters, Weres, Changelings, Faeries
- Humans: They are the most common race in the world. They are fruitful in numbers and hold a sort of monopoly over how well vampires can assimilate into their society. Their greatest weapon against them is sunlight. Human beings are very versatile.
- Vampires: The newest race to be introduced to the public, they are dark powerful creatures. Old ones can change shape and some even fly. Experienced vampires are capable of glamoring humans. Despite having TruBlood, there are some who resent being outed and want nothing more than to live as they once did. Every race does have a better side though which is reflected by the ones who make a effort to ease into human society. A few vampires have even became political, starting groups such as the American Vampire League. They are also allowed to run businesses and it is illegal to kill them. In some states, it is legal to marry one however.
- Shifters: Not much is known about the shifter race. They appear to be human but they have the ability to change into any animal they desire as long as they have a model nearby to base their transformation off of. They are not known to the public.
- Weres: Races who appear human at certain times but take full animal forms during the next. They are not known to the public.
- Faeries: The faerie race are dependent on the moonlight to survive. They use their magic to hide their eccentric features and the glow they emit when the moonlight touches them from the humans. They cannot hide their true forms from other supernaturals. Faeries can detect lies and have unnaturally colored features such as eyes.

There is no telling what else is out there...


Things to Know


TruBlood: The drink of choice for conservative vampires looking to take the edge off their hunger. It tastes horrible but it is available at almost every convenience store.
V: Vampire blood that is being taken as a stimulant. It's effects are but not restricted to enhanced senses, visions, and accelerated healing. It is highly addictive and is very lethal in large amounts.
Fangbanger: The name practically says it all. A fangbanger is a person who, openly or not, associates intimately with a member of the vampire race.
Vampire Districts: There are five vampire districts. Each one has a sheriff that holds up the rules set up by the tribunal.
Fellowship of The Sun: A religious group that is anti-vampire. They have been working their way into the political world. The former leader and his family were possibly murdered by vampires.
Turning: In order for a human to become a vampire, there must be sharing of the blood. Then the victim must be buried underground for a day's time for the transformation to be complete.
Tribunal: The vampire court. All vampire law breakers are taken to them to receive punishments.
Silver: The metal severely weakens a vampire no matter the amount.
Hepatitis D: A disease found in the bloodstream that has no affect on humans. But when exposed to a vampire, it an paralyze them for up to months at a time.

Note: Those who are not vampires do not commonly know about the districts, tribunal, or ways to kill a vampire.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

I wouldn't know where to start on questions, Rawrr! I'm also repeatedly being distracted by staring at Brendon Urie now. He's being very attractive, for sure. Lol. =) Mon ange watches the show as well, and I hear bits and pieces. If you want to educate me moreso on it, though, I'd be very grateful! =)

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

I'm still here. :) And I've been following the show to the latest episodes. If you have any questions, I'll be glad to share info with you. :)

Cer

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

I read of that. I hope the repairs went/are going well, at the least. I hope that this is up and running soon, though, too! It was such an awesome idea, and I hear the actual show is amazing. I have yet to see it, I will admit, but I have been looking forward to this for quite some time. It has been lurking in the back of my mind. I wonder if the other writers forgot?

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Well it might also be possible damages to their home. I hope they have none, but it might be that. But yes the lack of talking could also be a part of it.

Cer

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

I've been wondering for a while since no one was posting on the OOC thread or anything. DEEReye hasn't been on since June. I imagine this could be why the lack of roleplay happening. How terribly sad for now!

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

i have no clue. I hope not.

Cer

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Did this all just die? =/

Cer

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Same here. I didn't think to check this at first. I hope all is well, and the repairs go smoothly. I'll wait until you post first before sending Anathema on to Leonide's house. Also, I can add in extra males, if we need a few more.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Oh no I hope everything is ok.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Sorry for the wait. We experienced flooding where I live and repairs had to be made. The RP is open to posting. Anyone can post to anywhere they'd like. Except for Leonide's house unless a character is seeking trouble.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

i've been writting lots for Gretel's bio and her mother. what're you all doing to pass the time? anyone with a vamp wanna link our chars? Needa be like 400 yrs old though.. x.x

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

How do you know if ur approved or not? Becuase,I submitted an application. I'm just wondering not being impatient.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Umm... i was wondering when we will start? sorry to be impatient lol

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

http://www.roleplaygateway.com/roleplay/bad-things/

Just send a profile application.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Do I need to post the profile anywhere, or will you just accept? Thanks. =)

ETA: The link in the first post doesn't work.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

Thanks so much for the interest! I was starting to worry about battling off all the females. I will have the first post up by tomorrow night.

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

heya folks, and DEEReye, how're.you all doing this fine night? Finally found the "post reply" buttion. Well.. Folks call me "Elvey" for short, and i've finally gotten the urge to pick up a fem. character, but I saw DEEReye wanting more male cast members.. So, DEEReyes, if you like I can replace my current with a male or work on doubling, just means more char. plotting to do.


on a side note.. OMG! I thought I lost my post when I bumped my back buttion but thankfully my phone saves it in temp. memory.... Β¬.Β¬"

Re: [OOC] Bad Things [ True Blood RP ]

I can play two characters and create a male as well if you'd like.
