{The Story}

In the summer of 2015 a mixed group of college graduates decide to go urban legend busting across the world with a small camera crew for a series of TV specials to be broad casted on a small time network. It would be their first official job straight out of college. They went around debunking American urban legends like The Suscon Screamer and The Ghost of Stow Lake. Of course sometimes the legends were harder to track down than any of them thought and they only got a few good episodes out of the whole ordeal.

When each of them settled back into their respective lives none of them thought their small poorly made show would receive so much attention. Within the next year the show had garnered a large cult following. None of them really knew why until they went back to review a few episodes and found a very strange phenomenon in each episode. There was a strange shadowy figure that showed up in several shots of each episode. This shadow would have gone completely unnoticed if one wasn't looking close enough.

Soon enough pictures of the shadowy figure made its way all over the Internet and the show hit such high views it was placed on a larger more well known network. The former grads were tracked down and offered a deal that none of them at the time could really pass up - a high paying job to make another full length season of the show. This time however they wouldn't be restricted to just the American Urban Legends.

{Plot}

The small crew will travel the world debunking urban legends...or will they? While the show is meant for the debunking of the urban legends the crew itself has another agenda entirely - find out what exactly the shadowy figure is and why its following them around. Along the way dangerous things begin to happen, and the legends that they thought were made up begin to reveal themselves as entirely too real.

But is it real? Or is it simply in their heads....

Nicky Samson || Age: 28 || Gender: Female || Role: Host || FC: Cassie Steele || Somnium Carceri

"Nicky was the first to be approached to make the first set of TV specials and is the one who gathered up the rest of the crew. Holding auditions and choosing them based on their capabilities and knowledge. She has always been superstitious on some level, with a grandma who practiced voodoo you can't really escape that kind of thing but she doesn't outright believe anything. After the set of specials was done and over with she took a job as a waitress, because even with her experience on TV nobody would hire her. When approached to make a full season of the show Nicky couldn't say no especially after she began to see the shadow figure for herself and started suffering from night terrors."

Connor Whitmore || Age: 26 || Gender: Male || Role: Co-Host || FC: Jack Falahee || Mistress of Disguise
"Connor Whitmore is the smartest person in the room… or at least he likes to think so. A sly, laconic, heart-breaker; Connor is used to getting any prize he lays his eyes on, ensuring that he and his friends will constantly be in competition with each other. No matter how dirty the deed, he’ll go to any lengths to earn admiration. But what’ll happen when he is pushed a step too far? Will his natural confidence be able to carry him through a much darker journey?"

Ana Issac|| Age: 25 || Gender: Female || Role: Investigator Two || FC: Malese Jow || RedRavenChronicle
"Ana spent her life being the brunt of an inside joke that she just couldn't figure out. Mistreated by her older sister, bullied by her peers, picked on by professors who didn't give a damn about her situation. She found her only solace in her best friend Maya. It was Maya in fact who told her about the interview for a spot on the crew of legend busters. Ana got the job, much to her joy as it got her away from her oppressive life just for a short while. But things begin to happen around her afterwards, and it wasn't until she saw the shadow for herself that she realized things were becoming too real. She wasn't sure about taking the job a second time but knew if she didn't she would never find a way to sleep without fear."

Benji Qualls || Age: 29 || Gender: Male || Role: Cameraman || FC: Toby Kebbell || Duct Tape
"Benji was always the quiet type and normally would shy away from anything that would remotely put him in some sort of spotlight. However when he found out that there was going to be a group going around to debunk mysteries and the unknown he all but jumped at the opportunity. Being a film student made applying twenty times easier for him because not only was it for something he was familiar with, it was a way to push himself to be more open and to be one of the camera operators meant the perfect way to be in the action without being the center of attention. After the group disbanded he picked up a gig filming and photographing weddings along with his brothers."

Image
Chell Stevenson || Age: 24 || Gender: Female || Role: Camerawoman || FC: Alexandra Daddario || Afreerobin
Chell is not what you'd expect from a camerawoman in a horror show. She jumps at the slightest sound and is very jittery. If it weren't for the fact she can't really do anything but hold a camera (not to mention she absolutely loves working them) and that this show was the only one to hire her she'd be long gone.

This still doesn't mean Chell doesn't like her bit of adventure. When there isn't murderous monsters around or the threat of ghosts she'd be the first to set off. She's a bit of a strange girl in that way but most can't help but like the perky yet dainty attitude she gives off

1. Follow all of the site's main rules.

2. Be prepared to write at least one post every two-three days. If you go a week without posting you will be booted without question. If you have a legitimate reason for not posting you MUST inform us so we can ghost your character along without having to kick you out. Leaving without telling us will result in a death for your character.

3. I will not accept a character that has not been reserved first in OOC. At least tell me you are going to take the character that way it is fair for everyone. You will have 24 hours to submit a WIP, and after that you have a week (so seven full days) to finish the character (there is no possible excuse as to why you cannot finish them in that amount of time.)

4. Maturity is a must - the characters will be adults at LEAST in their mid twenties. There will be gore, there will be cursing, and mentions of violence.

5. Romance isn't a key point here but is allowed on the terms that you do not scar us forever with it.

6. Do not godmod, bunny, meta, or soapbox. Thanks.

7. When reserving please include a short description of the character to be placed on the front page. Don't worry if you aren't quite sure on this part yet you can wait until you are sure and I will still save the character for you. If you want to change the FC I won't be against it but you must provide the FC and gif you are going to use instead, and if you have trouble finding gifs I will help you out ^.^ . Also, include the password: Your favorite urban legend (this can include creepypastas).

8. I will provide a character sheet for anyone who wants to use it, but otherwise you may use your own layout.

Re: Legend Hunters

Hey, I'm so sorry I haven't finished my char. I have been working on movie project since last Thursday every day after school and weekends were full 18-hours day. So when I was able to go sleep at 2am I didn't even remember it. I tried to post warning at some point but the site was offline then.

So I promise I'll try to make my char in the next 24 hours, but if I don't feel free to drop me out. Again, I apologize.

Re: Legend Hunters

    I'd love to take the Linguistics/Investigator 4 role off your hands! Though, I noticed that the gender of the character is female. I'd much rather play a male but if you're concerned about it throwing off the gender ratio, I completely understand. Regardless, I have a faceclaim on stand by for each C: Just give me the go ahead. I could probably get the character sheet done before the weekend.

    As for my favorite Urban Legend [don't know if you're still looking for passwords] that would probably have to be Bloody Mary. It's a classic and she was one of my favorite characters from the comic and video game The Wolf Among Us

Re: Legend Hunters

Linguistics/invest 4 has opened up officially I suppose. Two other characters have yet to be completed ill give them the day to finish.

Re: Legend Hunters

Im recovering from a few days of serious Halloween partying. Im going to check the character progress right now. Im going to give everyone till tommorow (t be fair I've given a lot of time already to get the characters done) to get their characters finished. Anyone not finished will be rejected.

Re: Legend Hunters

Hey, just popping by to see if we were going to be beginning the roleplay this week or if we need any additional roles filled, I have a friend who may be interested in joining.

Re: Legend Hunters

Thats fine with me as long as it gets in. I will put in your reserve now.

Re: Legend Hunters

Hey I would love to reserve the last available character, the investigator one ^^ Also is it possible to get two days for posting the WIP? I have a really long day at school, we probably won't finish until 8pm

Edit: Ops, almost forgot something. But yeah, I don't really have favourite urban legend. I have heard so many that I can't choose one. However in Japan there's pretty scary stuff, Kushisake Onna is one that still creeps me out.

Re: Legend Hunters

Hey Somni wanted to check in and tell you I'm almost done with my character. She should be finished by early tomorrow morning.

Re: Legend Hunters

Reserved ^.^

Also, everyone will be given an extension due to the site being down.

Re: Legend Hunters

    [ignore me. message received.]

Re: Legend Hunters

Hi there! Might I reserve the male Co-Host, but change the FC from Silvestre Rasuk to Jack Falahee?

Password; I like the tale of bloody mary, can't go wrong with a classic!

Re: Legend Hunters

Sure thing, theres a character sheet a few posts up if you aren't sure how to make them (I'm just assuming since your new but I probably shouldn't just assume lol.) Ill edit the front page now.

Re: Legend Hunters

Hi there :D I'm new here but not new to roleplaying....May I please reserve Malese Jow?
I really like the dover demon and jersey devil type urban legends.

Re: Legend Hunters

Three spots left to reserve :D If all goes well we can start sometime next week.

Re: Legend Hunters

Awesome! Thankya very much I will edit the front page now. :D

Re: Legend Hunters

You've forgotten something ^.^ But you can once you edit your post with that something you've forgotten.

Re: Legend Hunters

I am intrigued, I would like to reserve the head of tech/investigator 3 If you please... Also Can I change the face claim to Aldis Hodge?

Image

My favorite urban legends would be , the lady in white, the hook man, and Bloody Mary.

Re: Legend Hunters

Awesome, I'll get the info up on the front.

Re: Legend Hunters

This looks interesting i'd like to reserve the Cameraman and change the face claim to Toby Kebbell.

I have no idea what my favorite urban legend is but I enjoy The Hook, Area 51, The Rake, The Babysitter, The Lick...others that I can't think of.
