Introduction

History of Poveglia

Poveglia is a small island located between Venice and Lido in the Venetian Lagoon, Italy.

It has an unfortunate history and is considered by some[who?] to be a hot spot for ghosts. During Roman times it was used to isolate thousands of plague victims, and during the three occasions when the black death spread through Europe, the island was effectively used as a lazar house and plague pit-it was considered an efficient way of keeping the infected people separated from the healthy. It is believed that over 160,000 people died on the island throughout its history.

The island was home to a small community until it was abandoned around 1380, during the War of Chioggia between Venice and Genoa. In 1922, a mental hospital was built on the island. Local lore states that a particular mental health doctor tortured and killed many of the patients, before being thrown to his death from a bell tower.[citation needed] According to that same legend, he survived the fall, but was 'strangled by a mist that came up from the ground'. Its ruins remain to this day.

Today, the island is abandonded beside a small village on the outskirts of the island.

The Roleplay

About a few weeks back Don got a call from his brother Kenny who had went to the Island of Povelgia to research it's mysterious past of the mental institute built on the island. The call was fuzzy and much couldn't be made out. Don figured it was his brother messing with him and hung up thinking nothing of it.

About a week later Kenny's wife called Don up telling him Kenny has gone missing. Don being worried went to Kenny's office were he met Dr. Maxwell, Kennys' research partner. Maxwell told Don his brother's last message intailed he made a huge discovery but it cut off there. Don has decided to assemble a team and head to the island to find his brother.

Don sat in the lobby of the Hugo Lab center waiting for his group to show up. He sent out a Email earlier that week for adventurers to come help him. They were mostly to friends so he knew who was coming but he was nervous. He looked at the tickets he had for his group and sighed.
"God I hope this doesn;t turn into something bad!"

Dan looked at the email one more time and sending a reply saying "Here is my number if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call or text me Thank You!. :P :) :D". Before heading out to the location the email said, he wrote the address down on a piece of paper forgetting he had a printer. As he left that morning he updated his Facebook...Xbox 360...and any other social things he had to read this. "Going on a trip to some haunting island by Italy. Don't know when ill be back..love you all <333333!!!" he then shut down his computer and grabbed his cell phone and keys and drove to his destination. When he got the sign read " Hugo Lab Center " he then looked at the paper he had written on to check the address and name. "Correct!" he said out loud. He parked his car in the parking lot and started to walk up to the gate that was surrounding it. He looked at the time to early for it to open. He sat on the ground waiting for it to open. He looked through his text messages his friends sent him while sitting there.

Don sat in the lab starring at the floor for about half an hour untill he finally heard the first car pull up to the building. Don stood up and began walking towards entrance. He pulled the keys out his pocket and found the right door. Don opened the door wide open and looked at Dan. Dan was an old friend from college he knew. "Hey yo! Dan." DOn said walking outside. "How you doin?"

Don watched Dan walk inside ahead of him. Don smirked then kinda let sorrow take him over.
"Could be better." He said walking in shutting the door behind him but not locking it. "I'm guessing you read the Email so you know the situation I'm guessing you know what's going on." Don cleaned the lense on his camera hanging around his neck. " We kinda might be in danger on this island. You up for it?" He said looking at the door than back at Dan. Don digged in his jacket pocket and pulled out a ticket. "Heres your plane ticket." He said handing it to him.

Brye didn't bother changing her clothes, it didn't matter anyway. She had a shower when she hid in the car wash, and put back the clothes she had. She had several supplies wrapped in a gym bag. She had been chosen by a scientist of Hugo Lab to go on a trip to a haunted island. She was certainly up for it, nothing could scare her, after all. Or so she thought. Even though her nights on the streets would be scary to the average non-homeless Joe, she still had some hint of a heart under all the grit.

She arrived at the laboratory, as clean as she could get, and with her bag of supplies. She saw the door of the scientist's office and knocked, "hello?" she said with only a slight inflection.

DOn slightly jumped and turned around to the person at the door. When Don looked he was surprised to see Brye. She was an old family friend back when he was in high school. He had lost touch with her a long time ago. In fact when he sent her the email he wasn't sure if she'd come at all.

Don snapped out of his train of thought and waved at her. He walked over and opened the door. "He Brye. Long time no see." He said with a smile.

Brye was taken aback by Don's greeting, then she remembered. "Hi Don," she said with a smile, "I came 'cause I couldn't resist this opportunity. I only just checked my e-mail from the Library computers. That's the only way for me nowadays, the bank took my family's house long ago." She looked down upon the blood on her shirt, "Don't mind the blood. I got into a nasty scrap with a guy twice my size, needless to say he ended up in the hospital. That'll teach him not to hit on me at happy hour. Anyway, I came as fast as I could, hence the unkempt appearance".

Don smiled and pointed towards the back.
"Theres actually some women clothes in the back. If you want them?" Don said smiling and pulling a ticket out his pocket and handing it to her. It sucked to here she was doing so bad. Sean continued smiling threw the sadness. "So I hope you know why we are going...right?"

Brye obliged, "Thank you so much!" She used a near by bathroom to change after she had taken her ticket and slipped it into her bag. She came back fully cleaned up and dressed in the clean clothes, "I have no idea why we are going, all I know is that the island is full of ghosts. Does it have anything to do with them, perhaps?"

"I'm not exactly sure. You see my brother went to Povelgia about a month ago now. He never came back." Don looked at a folder with the info on the table. "It says here, The Island of Povelgia was onced used by England when the plague broke out. They shipped there sick and even dead there. Eventually they just sent people theyy thought were sick and made them suffer till they died." Don's eyes widened. "That's not the sickest part of the island. Though there were corpses everywhere on this island they decided to build a mental hospital on the island. This was long before the Mental Institute Code of COnduct was written so the people who were sent to this institute were treated increadibly unfair. Rape and murder happend all the time. But there was one doctor in particular. His name isn't listed but he preformed expirements on his patients. One day he mysteriously fell from the clock tower. Ironicly he lived but lore says he was strangled by the fog on the ground"

(All this crap is real. I kid you not)

(Oh, I know it's real. I seen Ghost Adventures, an episode where Zak and his crew go to the island. Zak was possessed, I believe.)

Brye leafed through some of the information. "That's just plain sick, and I've seen dying hobos on the streets coughing bloody mucus up when taking their last breaths. I even helped some of the hobos on my street along to their final rest if they felt that they were suffering way too much."

Brye smiled and nearly jumped ten thousand feet into the air, "Of course! I can't WAIT!" She took her ticket from her bag, she'd be needing this soon.

Dan took the Ticket as he sat down. Then he saw another car pull up, a chick came out. He watched he come up in raggedy clothes. He then saw it was a friend of Don's. Dan then saw that she went into the back and change, she now looked better. He then listen to here story and then finally said something "Hi, My name is Dan..How are you?" He looked at her with curious eyes. Wondering how she lived like that. He then turned to Don waiting for her answer and said "So when do we leave to this place?" He sat there for them both to answer.

"I'm okay. My name's Brye Niasa. I'm betting that we leave soon, but I can't be too sure since I'm not the scientist. If I was, I wouldn't live the way I do, I'd be driving a brand spankin new Caddy rather than a beat up junker of a pickup truck" Brye smirked and giggled.
