You open your mailbox one day to find an unusual looking letter amongst the usual bills and junk mail. The envelope has a rustic atmosphere to it. It doesn't have a return address on the outside, simply your address. You turn it over to reveal it is sealed with red wax, an insignia melted into the wax. The insignia reads 'Devontic Manor and Estates'. You open the envelope and you find a hand-written letter. It reads...

You turn the letter and see that the directions lead you to a remote location out in the forest about two hours away. You're unsure about this letter. It seems mysterious. And what had you done that made them see you? How did they see you? You figure you might as well go, seeing as you've got nothing better to do on that day.

Little did you know that going to this "Party" would be the worst descision of your life.

And possibly one of your LAST...

"Damn...."

It appeared as if he failed in his attempt to bring Emma back into this party. It upset him a bit, but what could he do? It'd be strange to beg her to stay, and pushing it would just make him appear to be a creep. So, he prompty gave up, and watched as she buckled herself, and turned the key to start the Prius....

The car didn't start.

She tried again, recieving the same result as a gift. The next action carried out by Emma was an attempt to call someone, which has results similar to her car. While he did have a light urge to laugh at the situation, because he could tell that she thought the world of her Prius, he realized that'd just piss her off, which her car and phone have already done.

"You can't be serious!" she shouted, slamming her palm against the steering wheel.

Dalton opened his mouth to suggest the cause for this; cold, possibly, but was cut off by Leo before anything could be made audible.

"What the FUCK is this?"

Dalton snapped around to see Leo with what appeared to be black ash ruining his jacket and some on his face. With a shared glance to Emma, he jogged back over to the door along with her to see what all the commotion was about, ignoring yet another but smaller gust of wind. It was more like a light breeze.

Sieben Gäste.
Keiner mehr, keiner weniger.


His eyes rested upon a message on the door that appeared to be in German. Unfortunately, Dalton only knew how to speak 'Merican, as he liked to say just to piss a few people off. Obviously he wasn't a retard and knew that it was in fact English he spoke, but some people didn't seem to notice that in his tone of voice.

"Seven, you say?" he asked lightly after Emma translated that one word. "Seven what?... Seven... guests?" he threw out an idea. This was mainly because the second word started with the letter G, but he couldn't read the language, so he'd have no problem being told this wasn't the correct translation of the second word.

The temperature had dropped another few degrees since the group had gathered in front of the old mansion, and Chloe wanted desperately to get inside and change. It seems the had in fact over dressed for the occasion, and under dressed for the weather. Leo approached the old door, and soon a thick cloud of dust plumed from where he seemed to have slipped. Stepping forward she gripped the railing and leaned to see Leo covered in dust. It was difficult to hold back her chuckles.
"Are you alright-" she proceeded to ask, but the sight of the German on the door made her pause, "You're right, Seiben is Seven..."
Though the German was lost on her she began rooting through her bag, pulling out her tablet. Quickly with her fingers she tapped across the screen, and entered the phrase into her translator app. "Seven guests...No more, no less. she stated, slipping her tablet back into her bag.
"...I take french so, translator tools are a must....So does this mean that the door won't open until there are seven of us here?" she asked as she stepped up next to Leo, paying no mind to the dust in the air.

Oliver watched Leo walk up to the mansion, he also noticed the girl deciding to head home. Probably not the worst decision in the world given the nature of the surroundings and the looming mansion that stood silent before them. Go make nice with the pretty girl who is leaving? Go help the kid from getting lost in the creepy Manson family manor? Yeah, not much of a decision there,Ollie thought as he turned to go after the girl. One of the other guys was already jogging over to her. Without missing a beat Ollie rounded out his turn and headed to the kid at the door. You win this one Romeo,he thought grudgingly to the man who had beaten him to the girl. He reached Leo's side just as he was uncovering the words on the door.

"Creepy German is always a good sign..." he muttered, mostly to himself.

The girl he had decided to go talk to walked up next to him to examine the words on the door as well. Well that worked out nicely,Ollie thought to himself, smiling a bit.

Sieben means seven, that's all I know,the girl next to him said. Ollie's smile slowly went away as he looked closer at the door.

"Well if Sieben means seven, I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say that Gaste means guest and if my math is right," he looked around at all the guest, "we just about hit that quota."

"You're right, sieben is seven," said the flashy girl. Both Dalton and the taller guy had guessed the following word meant "guests". Emma nodded, but the second line still flustered her.

Keiner mehr, keiner weniger.

The word keiner had sparked in her mind, but the translation just wouldn't come to her. The flashy girl slid out her phone and clicked around, then looked up.

"No more, no less."

Emma snapped her finger, the translation kindling the phrase like a light bulb. A mental "duh" appeared in her mind. "I take French, so translator tools are a must," the girl added, then brought up a good question: will the door only open if there are seven of us present? Emma shrugged, then further inspected the handle. "Doesn't look like it'll open; maybe the host is waiting until everyone is here to unlock it."

She looked back at her car and sighed, then turned to the tall guy. "We didn't get your name."

Re: Domus Damnatorum

Sorry I haven't been able to post.. Been really busy and I'm going on vacation on sunday... I'm gonna try my hardest to post tonight but its gonna be hard...

Re: Domus Damnatorum

Sorry, been busy with work. I just got off and need some sleep but I'll be on tonight

Re: Domus Damnatorum

I'm just waiting for the others to read the German.

Re: Domus Damnatorum

Yeah, I share that same shit schedule.

I ended up RP-ing up until five and then went to sleep, only to be awoken at seven and I haven't slept since. Also, it is 12:40am right now, so I'm still surprised I am even awake.

Kinda been lurking because I don't want to really post in this state....

BUT DALTON WILL CARE! YOU BEWARE!

(That rythmed and it feels weird using my name in a third-person tense.)

Re: Domus Damnatorum

No no, it's especially sweet! I like him

And I absolutely understand; if I manage to get 2 hours tonight, I'd have 4 hours in all including yesterday!

I don't know why I stay up so bloody late honestly, my body will just shut down one of these days

Re: Domus Damnatorum

You can't blame him for CARING!

He's nice at heart, you just have to get to know him....

Also, running on a low tank here, so I won't be posting until tomorrow for fear of a shit post.....

(I got less than two hours of sleep last night...)

Re: Domus Damnatorum

Well damnit mate, I was gonna have Emma get to her car, have it not turn on, and basically give her no other choice than to stay and at least enter the mansion

I'm still going to incorporate that somehow

And I'm trying to give an idea of Emma's personality/what's in her head, I wouldn't just leave the roleplay lol but whoo, nice guyyyy

Re: Domus Damnatorum

*Sighs*

I swear that this happens in a majority of the RPs I'm in on FF.net.

So many people to meet at once that we don't interact with one and they get depressed and leave..... of course, this girl doesn't have the ability to control wind, so she's not really a threat, but Dalton can't just let her leave......

He'll have to be the nice guy....

(As if he wasn't going to be already)

Re: Domus Damnatorum

I like how this is going~

Re: Domus Damnatorum

So now can I make my entrance post into the story?

Re: Domus Damnatorum

I'm accepting your character now.

Re: Domus Damnatorum

So I have a few questions.

I just found this place and want to be a part of this RP. I hope there is still room, it looked like you were looking for 2 more people.

Also I made a character profile for here already. Does it have to be accepted by someone or did it just not actually show up?

Re: Domus Damnatorum

SUPER DUPER IMPORTANT NOTICE. IT'S MANDATORY THAT EVERYONE IN THIS RP READ THIS.


Okay. Now that that's out of the way.
This is for the purpose of story and universe events.
If you see a post made by me, xArmageddon, that looks like this:

[STORY POST IN PROGRESS. DO NOT POST]

That is called a [WARNING POST]

Do NOT make a post if you see a [WARNING POST].
If you see a [WARNING POST], its there to be sure nobody interrupts an important [STORY POST].
A [STORY POST] is an important event that occurs, a universal happening, or otherwise "Game Master" controlled aspect.
(Much like something a Dungeon Master would do in Dungeons and Dragons)

EXAMPLE: If a [STORY POST] was about to be made saying Door X locked behind Person A, but Person B posted about going through Door X while I, xArmageddon, was typing the [STORY POST] and Person B wasn't aware of the [STORY POST] about to be made, it would conflict.

Ya dig?
It's just to prevent conflict.
So bottom line.

If you see a [WARNING POST]:

[STORY POST IN PROGRESS. DO NOT POST]

DON'T POST UNTIL THE [WARNING POST] BECOMES A [STORY POST].

Just refresh every once in a while.
I'm working on the [STORY POST] as you read the [WARNING POST], so just refresh until I'm done~
I hope I made sense :3

Re: Domus Damnatorum

Sorry about having a late post.

I hate needing to put so much Catch-Up in a single post.

I wasn't paying very good attention.

And I have 2 potential RP-ers to take the last 2 guest spots.

BUT If you guys know anybody, feel free to tell them about this.

Re: Domus Damnatorum

I changed my character a bit, hope you don't mind. Going to change my post, too! I feel a tad more comfortable not playing such a wimpy girl

Re: Domus Damnatorum

Let the posting begin.

Re: Domus Damnatorum

I'll message him.

Re: Domus Damnatorum

About cant.... he told me in another forum that he wasn't going to be on. I'm not sure if it was just because he was quitting that one or something else, but.....just saiyan....

Re: Domus Damnatorum

Brilliant! Can hardly wait for this to start :)

Also, just to inform you ahead of time: I won't be able to post over the weekend! Hope this doesn't move too quickly
