Introduction

Image


The clocks read 11:58PM in Forest Grove, Oregon on a brisk fall Friday. The students of Pacific University could be found doing an abundance of things. Some were partying, becoming more and more inebriated as they downed shot after shot of alcohol, some were studying madly for their next big test, others were joking and laughing with their friends over a game of Cards Against Humanity, and others were just about ready to get to bed. What they didn’t know was that the Midnighters of Bixby, Oklahoma have broken the seal and when the clock struck midnight time would freeze for everyone…well almost everyone.

11:59PM. In Bixby, Oklahoma at midnight time freezes and another moon rises, emitting blue light everywhere. The rain is still, looking like tiny glimmering specks in the air. The cars on the highway have stopped. The dogs have ceased their barking because they too are frozen. The moon rises and sets for an extra hour and every night is this way. This is called the blue hour. It is that special hour between 12:00am and 12:00:01am that only few are able to experience. The only humans who manage to escape the time freeze are the ones who were born exactly at the stroke of midnight. Unfortunately, the rules have changed and this blue hour will now occur everywhere in the world.

12:00AM. The dim blue light sweeps over the Pacific University campus as well as the entire pacific time zone. Spilled beer is static and floating in place. Lifeless bodies are frozen in conversation all across the western seaboard. Everyone is still…except for the select few. The Midnighters who attend Pacific University are experiencing the blue hour for the first time in their lives. Some are stricken with fear, unable to move in the space at first while others’ curiosity takes them to unimaginable heights. They discover new abilities they never knew existed. Some may read minds, some may breathe fire, or even fly. This blue hour is an escape for them…unfortunately they aren’t the only things that reside in it. Darkness looms around the corner and it is on a high speed path straight for our Midnighters.




You will be role playing for one of the five known Midnighters at PU. You will start the role play blinded and alone. You will not know what power you possess or how to use it. It is up to the five role players to figure out what they are and what their purpose is by testing it during the blue time and/or researching it during the 24 hours that people aren’t frozen. Researching won’t be easy seeing as this has never been heard of before and a test gone wrong in the blue time could prove fatal. Are you here to escape from the world or save it? And save it from what? Can you do that while dealing with the struggles of college and becoming a real human? Are you even a real human?

This role play will be like none ever done on this website. It will combine the awesome qualities of serious literary role plays as well as action filled Dungeons and Dragons style play when the blue hour comes. This will require dedication and a serious time commitment in order for it to be fun and successful. A minimum of 3 posts a week will be expected from the 5 authors. If you cannot handle that please don’t waste our time. If you have never read Midnighters do not fret. That is actually a plus! It means you will be learning about your character as they learn about themselves and it will make roleplaying even more fun and interactive.

Once your character is approved please PM me with what would be your first post describing where your character is and what they are doing right before their first blue hour. We will have a quick 1x1 role play in PM going through your character's first time in the blue hour. This will be your time to figure out as much as you can about yourself and the world before I take off the training wheels. The first posts of the actual role play for all the characters will be a descriptive version of their midnight adventure and the morning after.

Good luck, role players. You might will need it.

Toggle Rules

Read Carefully

RP Rules
  • This is a literate roleplay with a Dungeon and Dragons style twist.
  • Prove to me your writing skills through your character sheet. Don't expect me to accept it just because.
  • Have your characters build new rivalries/romances even with NPCs.
  • All the general RPG rules apply
  • Reservations are only 48 hours, I will accept a mostly finished WIP
  • This is an adult roleplay.
  • You can not change FCs.
  • Character request can only be done in OOC. Do not PM me about them.
  • You can not post pictures anywhere but OOC. Headers are the only photos allowed in character posts.
  • Tasteful links are allowed anywhere.

Midnighters Rules
  • If your character does something in or outside of the blue hour that is not possible I will comment IN your post in red. You will have 24 hours from the time of my comment to edit your post. This should happen less and less as your character learns their abilities.
    EX: Billy is surrounded by creatures. He trembles as they crawl closer to him. He flies away. <---Billy cant fly
  • If your character SHOULD experience/feel something that you are unaware of because you don't know that tenant of their power I will insert a sentence or two into your post. Once again, this should happen less and less as you discover your powers fully.
    EX: Billy walks into the room and sees his friends. Billy's hands begin to feel warm, he ignores it and smiles at his buddies.
  • If your post is great and everything checks out I will make the first word of your post blue signaling to other writers that it is okay to respond to your post.
  • Do not respond to a post if it does not have the blue marker.
  • Do not refer to the Midnighters Trilogy or online sources to learn about the universe and/or your ability. You are cheating yourself and making the journey less fun/realistic for everyone. If you already have prior knowledge please make it so your character finds out about it on their own accord. If I can not answer the question, "how did he/she know that would work?" then I will call godmoding and you will be forced to edit your post which is tedious so lets avoid that.

Re: Midnighters: Portland

You have been approved, Wednesday! Now you must PM me with what Mat is doing on a Friday night at 11:58PM so you can have your first blue hour with me!

We are almost there everyone!!!
Keep it up.

Re: Midnighters: Portland

And thanks for the reserve! I've just finished him up, although I think the personality bit needs a lot of work. :s

Re: Midnighters: Portland

But actually I have no idea what's happening!! I can't write! I'm sorrrrry!!

Re: Midnighters: Portland

Toast! Your character profile makes me cry.

Image

Also, since you both (Minor and Toast) asked so nicely, I'll be submitting a character... soonish. I can't promise a profile completed before Friday. Everything for my Eagle Scout has to be turned in this Wednesday, and that's what I'm doing until then. And after the 22nd, I'm set for life. For life.

Re: Midnighters: Portland

I made a small mistake in some of your PMs. The moon that rises and sets during the blue hour is BLACK, not blue. It emits blue light though.

Kind of like the sun is yellow but it emits clear light.

Re: Midnighters: Portland

Malice, your character has been approved.

Could I reserve Male 1, please? I'll have him done hopefully by tonight wheni'vedealtwithourotherrphellotoastyehuehue

Re: Midnighters: Portland

Hey there, I'd like to reserve Missy please!

Re: Midnighters: Portland

Mermaid, you will not be able to PM me until you've made 10-15 posts here first, so if I were you I'd just post randomness or ask all of your questions in individual posts. You can also send me your 1x1 posts via email or Facebook until your PM hold is lifted.

Re: Midnighters: Portland
