Engulfed In Darkness

Engulfed In Darkness


Stay in the light, they can't get you in the light can they?

573 readers have visited Engulfed In Darkness since gezzygezzy created it.


Sometimes, do you get that feeling that something is watching you? Or at night when you turn off the lights you get scared for some reason? Well you have good reason to. Their are demons, they love to eat, but are on a specific diet. They eat peoples souls. They are pretty much indestructable in demon form but they are not unstopable. These demons can only travel in the dark and the lighter it is the less powerful they are. If they are out in the light completely they die without a trace, because the lighter it is the more transparent they become. But at night, when it is dark and all your lights are turned out they take their full form, along with all their powers. They are like ghosts, except the ghost myth actually came from these creatures. Their power grows with fear and feeding, but it seems like light is the only thing that makes them weaker. They don't seem to be affected from lack of feeding.

Now five boy demons have came to your peaceful town of West Hills and have targeted five girls houses. Only they find that when they tried to take their souls in their sleep, they couldn't. It intrigued them and after a while made them addicted to the girls. They want them to join them and be thier mate, together for eternity. But how could the girls be theirs for eternity if humans die?

This frustrated them so they talked to the older, smarter demons and found out more than what they had hoped to. If the girl willingly gives her soul and is, in return, given demon blood, she will become a demon as well and they will be mated. But they also found something else that few know. They can use somebody's body that they have fed off of as their host and can go in the light. The only downsize about that though is that their powers are restricted to petty tricks: Flickering lights, moving shadows, parlor jokes to a demon.

Their is of course, a problem with older demons, they get interested in the abnormal. The ones that they asked about followed the demons back to the town and have been studying it. Some of them hadtaken an interest in the girls as well, but others, the more evil ones just want to eat their souls as a sort of game.

Will the girls fall in love with the demons and become one themselves? Or will they be tricked or even forced into it? Will the older demons get to them first? Can the humans beat the odds and somehow beat the demons?

Stay in the light. They can't hurt you in the light. Can they?

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

I am out as well. Hopefully you guys can kickstart this roleplay soon. Have fun.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Alright guys, Im officially out. Havent heard anything from the GM in a week. Good luck.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

The problem here is an in active GM

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

No! This can't die! *cries*

I think we just need more demons, then we are set! The other people aren't like needed or whatever...

I suggest maybe maing a Roleplayers Wanted thread? Or maybe asking around in some of the OOC's - as long as it is not against the roleplays rules, of course :)

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

when will this rp get moving? Get it together or it's gunna die out

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Hey Gezzy. Just to let you know, Ill be on a plane most of Monday, so I will not be able to reply at all Sunday and Monday. I should be back in action on Tuesday though.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Can i reserve a demon?

Re: Engulfed In Darkness


I have not been on lately and haven't gotten the chance to get my character up and running! I can probably get her up tomorrow, day after at the latest. BUT I DO APOLOGIZE!

Also, I think the answer to Silver claw's questioni is they can use the body they fed off of even if they have already used it once.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

I submitted my character, but I'm having trouble with the image sizes.Hopefully I can get it fixed, but just know that I'm trying.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

alrighty, thanks, ill have my character submitted asap.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness


You say that the demons can inhabit the bodies of those they've fed off of. Can they keep the body they're possessing, or do they need a new one once they leave?

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Character has been submitted, hope she is acceptable :3

It's fine. Reservations last for another day.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Sorry, I had to go into work before I could finish my character. I shall have her up today. Sorry about that.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

I'll reserve demon #3

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

If any girl spot is opened up, may I please reserve it? I will most likely have a character up tomorrow :)

Oh, and btw, I love the Paramore avatar icon :3

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Yup. I'll take an older demon too.

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Okay then, I shall change the reservation. Silverclawedmouse I think I'm going to lock in your demon reservation then?

Re: Engulfed In Darkness

Please Kay, go ahead and take the girl :) I thought this may happen
