What do you know about the world you've found yourself trapped in? Next to nothing.
You are a lonely person, whether that means you simply avoid people or that you've lost everyone you're close to. You come from any time period present or past, you come from anywhere in the world. You're incessantly creative. An inventor, a scientist, an artist, you have a need to make something, to discover something. This leads you to be curious at the worst time for it:
You were curious; too curious. When the whispers rang in your ears you answered, and they led you into a slow descent into madness and the occult. Whether it was imagining voices in the radio which told you to build a special door, or voices in your head that inspired you to try to summon pure shadow, or something else entirely, you made the mistake of tempting the shadow creatures. You made the mistake of playing right into their game. The dark hands slithered from the shadows, struck, and dragged you into the ground with them. As the shadow hands drag you away you hear the sound of a music box, and a long shadow with the absence of darkness for eyes watches you slowly sink away. That's all you remember before you come to deep in the forest with a dark man standing over you. What does he say?
"Say pal, you don't look so good. You should find some food before nightfall. Don't starve."
You're scared of him immediately and just as soon as he says this, he disappears into the shadow of a tree. You don't see him again for some time. You're more focused on picking possibly poisonous berries off a berry bush, and avoiding the creatures you for some reason know are called beefalo because you don't know yet they're only dangerous when they're in heat, and making axes so you can chop down enough wood to build a fire at night. As darkness closes in each night, your sanity begins to drain away, you can feel a deep monster in the shadow, you know if you let your light source die, it will be upon you. The only way to restore sanity is picking flowers and sometimes sleep or standing close to the pigmen which camp in the grasslands of this place. But is sleeping safe? Probably not.
When our story starts, you've been alone for 20 days in the Insanity. You've set up camp or tried to explore this awful place. If you've explored, you've found that this world is seemingly endless, and that it may very well be an island but there are no beaches, at the end of the world, there are only inhospitable cliffs down to a dark ocean. There are terrifying creatures made of shadow that stalk this world and as soon as your sanity starts to slip you can see them. Most of the time, they don't attack. They skitter past in your periphery and the shadow hands return some nights to take your fire, and you have to rebuild it before it goes out. Sometimes the hounds, the black or blue or red wolves, come for you and you must make spears or take your axe to them. You're starting to forget what home looked like.
You've seen skeletons and graves here, you've seen monsters, rabits, birds, pigmen, giant spiders, and beefalo, but you've yet to see another living person inn the Insanity besides the dark man who greeted you on your first day. And then you meet the others. There are five of you altogether, none of you know more about the Insanity than the last person, none of you know why you're here. So do you choose to trust the strangers in this strange world, and attempt to discover why you're here or what this world really is, or do you decide to go it alone when winter is probably just around the corner and the world just seems to be becoming more hostile?
Either way, the priority, first and foremost? Don't starve.

What year and place did your character come from before they were dragged into the insanity?
{[b]Statisitcs:[/b]}
Each character has three scores; Sanity, Hunger, and Health. As a DM this makes it easier for me to figure out how much your characters should be hurting in any given field on any given day. You'll have a bassline max stat of 150, 175, or 200 in each stat, so choose what your character is best at. For example, a character with a statblock like "Sanity: 200, Hunger: 150, Health: 175" is going to go insane slower than other characters, but starve quicker.

i. reserves must be made in the ooc, with the password.
ii. this is going to be a roleplay which is done in a more traditional 'storyteller and players' way; I'll be orchestrating the environment entirely, and I would much prefer it you don't make presumptions about the environment or world without prior checking with me, since I have a lot of big plans for this roleplay and the way I'll run it.
iii. If inactivity or an inability to play comes up, please inform everyone in the ooc.
iv. reserves last for 48 hours. Please have a WIP up by then. I understand work and school but do realise this is a small roleplay which I'd like to fill quick.
v. we'll start as soon as all roles are filled. I don't anticipate a lot of interest in this roleplay, so should there only be enough for three additional characters (besides mine) we can start then. If by some miracle there's more interest than roles I'll add a spot or two.
to make a reserve, please tell us your character's country of origin.
vi. this goes without saying, but respect in the OOC please, and respect one another while writing as well. I am strict about godmodding. Three strikes and you’re out. I will also not tolerate bigotry or hatespeech in the OOC in any way shape or form.
vii. viewer & player discretion advised, mature roleplay, mature content, etc etc etc.
viii. rape is off limits. period end of story. the DM is an assault survivor and wouldn’t like to read about rape
ix. I may be the DM, and want my final ruling to be understood, but I try to be an easygoing DM who trusts their player’s instincts and common sense. Please talk to me about concerns, questions, anything.
x. I’d like to see at least a strong paragraph, if not more than two. I want a relaxed roleplay, but I don’t want a lazy one.
xi. please reference the wikia for Don't Starve if you want to know about the flora and fauna in this world or anything else, really. I'm running off the wikia myself.
xii. Romance is fine, this isn't a romance-based roleplay but I understand character relationships are very important to the running of a roleplay, so I might even encourage romantic or close platonic interaction between characters. Sexual content must be taken off board, though. Drama is also encouraged, it spices up a roleplay pretty well.

Re: Don't Starve

I've completed Chris, with the exception of the titles and name image. My preferred website appears to be down and RPG seems to be facing some troubles as well. Other than that, everything else is good.

Re: Don't Starve

Sorry I haven't gotten my character sheet up yet. :) Hopefully I'll have it up by this evening. Just wanted to let you know I hadn't abandoned this.

Re: Don't Starve

Moonstruck
Reserved for you! Thank you, I'll put it up now.

Mei & Tania
Your two characters are still not accepted, for the purposes of the roleplay.
Tania, feel free to take the next two days to complete your character
Mei, please add more to your 'appearance', 'personality' (some more flaws and depth would be lovely!), and 'history' (how she came to the Insanity, please, this isn't a roleplay about the characters' lives previous to the Insanity, it's about their lives within it. We need to know how she got here.) sections, and please fill out the 'Statistics', 'Family', 'Friends & Lovers', and 'Inventory' sections. The 'strategy' section isn't necessary but you can fill it out if you'd like as well.

Re: Don't Starve

I'm reserving a spot for a male character.

Origin: New York City, 1955

FC: James Dean :DD


Image

Re: Don't Starve

Apologies, but I'm beginning to believe you haven't read the roleplay's concept.

Re: Don't Starve

I'm not sure I understand? She's born in 1995 if that's what you mean. Sorry, with the FC choice I had to make her younger.

Re: Don't Starve

Apologies, everyone!
I had the roleplay set to 'does not require approval', which is why there are suddenly a bunch of WIPs accepted, please don't mind them, it was unintentional and should be fixed now!

Also, Peter is up if you all would like to use him as an example.

Re: Don't Starve

No problem. I'll just keep her up and let you look at it when it's done. :) She should be done later today.

Re: Don't Starve

ALL - CHARACTER ANNOUNCEMENT
A little explanation for two things:
Firstly, electronics of most sorts don't work in the Insanity, although your character may or may not know that depending on the circumstances. The level of tech in the world will be explained on a case to case basis; so expect some of my messages to you to be about that in the near future.
Secondly, I thought I might clarify a little with the Health/Sanity/Hunger stats. Basically, the number you're choosing for each is their 'max limit' for each stat. A person with 200 health can't raise above 200, and is probably much less likely to die of damage than a person with 150 health. A person with 200 sanity can't raise above 200 sanity, and is probably much less likely to go completely insane than a person with 150 sanity. The same is true of hunger.

TaniaSoulEater
Nonbinary characters are welcome and encouraged. Also, love the FC choice! However, I do seriously need what year she's from for the main page.

Re: Don't Starve

Okay, I've got a WIP and running. I'm sorry if she's really bad. Tomorrow I believe we will be up in Taipei, where the computers are much better (this one doesn't support GIFs so I couldn't add any). Let me know what you think, anything else you feel I should add, comments, criticism, everything. Thanks! <3

Re: Don't Starve

By year I'm assuming you mean age? I'm thinking early twenties. I was also considering making her nonbinary? Since you've put a ban up and I know, an overly large number of females is not great.

EDIT: Never mind, ignore that last part. I'll work something out.

Re: Don't Starve

ALL - CHARACTER ANNOUNCEMENT
Due to TaniaSoulEater's availability for the roleplay, there is now a temporaryfemale ban. Nonbinary or Male only, please! I'm opening up two more slots simply because I didn't expect this much interest. We'll still start when we have six roles filled.

TaniaSoulEater
Happy to have you, I'll reserve you a spot! What year is your character from?

shadowseductress
For some reason my looking at your character made her accepted. I apologize! I understand she's not ready yet and if you'd like to abandon that sheet and create a new one so your progress isn't up there, feel free!

Re: Don't Starve

Okay. I'm moving up north in the country today, but come nighttime, either today or tomorrow, I will try my best to get a WIP up. I will let you know by tomorrow night. Thank you so much!

Re: Don't Starve

shadowseductress
I'll reserve a spot for you, thanks for joining!

ALL - CHARACTER ANNOUNCEMENT
I'd prefer the other two survivor spots are left to males or nonbinary characters unless you have a particularly good reason to play a female.

Re: Don't Starve

I would like to reserve a spot!

I was thinking of being Scotland, year 1994

Faceclaim is Audry Kitching

Image

Re: Don't Starve

Mei
I'll reserve a spot for you, thanks for joining! What year will your character be from?

Gentlemiss
He's one of my favorites! I try not to overuse him so this is my first roleplay with him on this site, but I love his expression and he has such a wide range of style. Happy roleplaying to you!

TaniaSoulEater
I think it depends on how active you can be while overseas; I can't hold a spot for you until the fifteenth, but if you can have a character/WIP up within two days and complete it thereafter, as well as showing at least minimal activity in the roleplay while overseas, then it won't hold up the roleplay and we can have you.

Re: Don't Starve

Hello! I'd love to take a spot, but I'd like to mention a little predicament I have here. You see, I am currently overseas, and I won't be home until the 15th. Might you still be willing to take me?

If you do, my character will be from Germany, and while I haven't decided on a faceclaim yet, it'll be a girl. Thank you!

Re: Don't Starve

I'm full on RPs right now but, Brendon Urie <3. Love that FC choice so much! Good luck with your RP!

Mei

Re: Don't Starve

May I reserve a spot?

My character's country origin is California, USA.

And my FC would be AnnaSophia Robb.
