Of the Forest

Of the Forest

0 INK

There's rumored to be a village, hidden deep in the forest that no one has any information on. What they don't know is that there's more to this tiny little village in the forest, more than what they would ever think.

839 readers have visited Of the Forest since γƒͺンーけゃん created it.

Introduction

(You know what? I'm sorry, I really am! I couldn't hold back making another one! God dang it! Yeah, I feel really guilty now for lying... What to do... What to do... Well... if you'll forgive me for making another rp so early, take a look at this one too, yeah?)




The Village in the Forest




Image



There is said to be a village in the forest, deep within the forest. It's only found by those who are able to get lost, its location being unknown and always seeming to change, if someone were to visit there often. But those that say that have met the people and seen the houses are always shunned for visiting such an unholy place. Why is it called unholy? Because it's said to be the home of demons, ghosts, and anything else that should not exist or be found, or even be spoken of. It's against the rules of the religion everyone follows, because the village near by is a very religious one, believing in vanishing spirits and abominations no matter what.

This is always, and has only been suspicion though and intuition, the religious exorcists having to have never seen the village with their own eyes. No one really believes in these things, demons, spirits, they're fake and unreal obviously because no one has ever seen them. The regular villagers just act holy and innocent so that they would not be punished by the religious leaders who have taken control of their lives. Well... at least, most of them do.

There are always those few people who chose to leave the village while the religious ones are busy, and try to find the village in the forest for themselves to discover the truth. But searching gets you no where in this case, you only struggle to find something that doesn't exist. Until you finally become lost. That is when the hidden village will finally reveal itself to the lost wanderer and invite them over for a stay.




The People of the Forest



Image




Demons
They're exactly as you know them, people, or things, or creatures from hell. Well, in most cases they are. In this case, they're simply spirits of objects or emotions, mostly negative emotions or dangerous objects such as anger or a knife. Often, they're created by a strong emotion someone else felt, and if true, then this demon will most likely follow around the person. If severed from this person, both struggle to survive, so it's essential that they stay close. If a demon is created from a weapon, then there's not much to worry about other than having to carry around the weapon wherever they go. Demons, like most unholy creatures, live just about forever. Demons, putting aside the fact of not being able to transform into anything, take on a usual violent personality, or an envious, or lustful personality (Try to relate to seven deadly sins).

Youkai
Youkai are very similar to demons, but unlike demons, they're created by an animal or a plant, but never a human or object or emotion. Youkai tend to be formed out of random, making around only four or five of them around the area because it doesn't occur too often. But when it does, a Youkai is born almost like a human, just not born from two parents. Instead, they're born from what they're created by. Other than that, they'll grow like a regular child would, though unlike demons, they have a limit on their life, living to only a few thousand years old rather than an eternity of life. Youkai also can also transform into what they were created from (Ex. Wolf Youkai can turn into a wolf) while demons may not.

Humans
Humans of the hidden village are much different from those of the religious one. The humans of the village in the forest are mostly humans that visit often, now knowing to get lost before searching for the village, or travelers from an unknown area that stop by for part time jobs, seeing friends or family, or just checking on the village in general. They're nothing very special other than that most have special skills like being a master at art, or dance, or music, etc. This talents usually surpasses a regular professional of a regular human, no matter how hard they trained and studied or how old they are.




The Roles



Image




Blacksmith ~ The blacksmith is the one who makes the swords and weapons for everyone, especially for the demons since many are created by a weapon and may need one to replace a broken one or lost one. The blacksmith is a respected person by the village, though he/she also takes on another job of nightly patrols around the village.
*Not a very hard role to play, just make weapons and add in walking around the village at night once in a while* (γƒͺンーけゃん | Yuuta Masaki | )

Innkeeper ~ The innkeeper is the person who takes charge of the inn where many of the travelers and humans stay at during their one night stay, or perhaps long if they innkeeper allows it. He/She is one of the people who gets the most respect from the majority of the village as he/she has an important job to persuade visiting humans to stay.
*Also not very difficult. Just run it like you would with a hotel* (OPEN)

Headmistress ~ The headmistress is the person who watches over all of the village, taking responsibilities for any crimes or injuries (rare) and making sure no one does anything stupid like allowing an exorcist inside (if they ever find it) or starting a riot by accident. This person gains the most respect from everyone and anyone in the village.
*Probably the most challenging, but still not very hard. Can act normal or have a certain strict side to her and be sure to add in watching over the village! If you need any help if you're going to play this character, feel free to ask, I don't mind helping out at all! Also remember that even though you may be the headmistress, you, too, have freedom to do what you'd like!* (xLevesquex | Sayo Nakazawa | )

Chef ~ There is only one restaurant in the village, and only one chef to cook all the food. He/she must be quick, and professional since many people go there for the meals. If not, it'll be a bit difficult to run his/her restaurant. The chef is also one of the few who get a lot of respect because of the challenging job he/she must take on.
*May be slightly difficult because this person has to be cooking quite constantly, but you'll get free time to roam around! Just add it in a post or two now and there!* (OPEN)

Guard ~ The guard is the person who takes patrols with the blacksmith at night. He/she is the one who also has a job similar to the headmistress, watching over the village very closely, but unlike the headmistress, he/she must also protect the village, especially from dangerous people like exorcists if they were to cross into their village by accident.
*Quite an easy job to fill in. The blacksmith and guard will most likely be close friends while the guard will also be close friends with the headmistress because of the job similarities* (The Keywork | | )

Performer ~ This young man/woman is a traveller, but not just any traveller. He/she is the entertainer of the village. This person puts on plays, gives music out, and is practically friendly with anyone and everyone there. He/she is a regular at the village, and is well known throughout the parts, even in the regular village of humans.
*Another easy role, quite similar to a traveller, but this person gets a bit more respect than any traveller would*
(Mashotu | Tsuru Vite | )

Trainer(s) ~ These two (One male one female) are the trainers of the village. They both specialize in three subjects such as swordsmanship, art, and stealth, etc. They train just about everyone in the hidden village (sometimes even lost humans and travelers) to protect themselves often, and other useful things that will be needed to live there.
*A little more challenging, but would definitely be fun to play The two trainers should share a bit of a friendship rivalry to see who's the better teacher, but you can ignore that if wanted as it is only a guide line! It would be appreciated though!*
(Female~ DreamerOnTheStars | |
Male~ Arik223 | Michio Hayashi | )

Lost Humans~ These are the humans that walk into the forest, either trying to get through or to look for something, and eventually become lost and can't find their way out. During this time, they'll find the hidden village, and probably end up staying there from being convinced by the Youkai, Humans, and Demons who persuade them to stay. *Easiest role to play. This is unlimited while there will be only one of the other roles above this one. From here down, the spots are unlimited!*
(Keen | | )
(OPEN FOR ALL)

Travelers ~ Travelers are mostly humans who come from an unknown location and end up finding the village, not by mistake like the lost humans, but on purpose as they are regulars there and known by the workers. They posses an unusual skill to be a professional at one hobby, perhaps more than an adult would be, which is why they're quite often admired and accepted by the village, despite most of them being humans, or an unknown race.
*These can only be played by humans or unknown races! No Demons or Youkai!*
(γƒͺンーけゃん | Sakine Dedori | )
(OPEN FOR ALL)

(Note that no exorcists will be played! Those will only be NPCs! Also, note that all the roles may be either one of the three races except for the travelers who must be an unknown race or human and the lost humans which must obviously be humans!)

Kumiko released a breath of relief as she sat up from her cramped position, and watched her newly brown hair spread around her. "Finally.." Its been the transformation from the cold to the heat and as always, her body changed for the climates. The relief was amazing after its over, since its so painful, but she got more used to it after a hundred years or so.

Yawning, she slipped out of the sliding doors and began to inhale the warm air. What bliss. No sting, no pain. The air wasn't like poison anymore. It was just.. Air~ And as a gentle breeze came, Kumiko welcomed it with insist, until she froze at a strong scent. Of not just one..but two? 'Human...And Michio.' The other male trainer who she appeared to have a sort of rivarly? OR was it a one side thing? She'll never know what the other thought of her exactly, but their relationship was fine. A little sparr here and there.. but no blood. No real fights...

They were pretty close, if she had to say anything.

Brushing her hair behind her ears, she closed her eyes and concentrated. The energy flowing in her body seemed to shift and physically she began to shrink. Her arms shorter, the same with her long legs, but they held more muscle.

Opening her eyes, one of the many features that remain the same, she sprinted off towards the direction of the two. But in the meanwhile, she couldn't help but purr slightly. It felt so good to run once more. Her legs stretch and the rest of her body seemed to just slide into place~ This kind of pleasure happens once every year, as the painful transition is an annual thing.

She couldnt help it, and she let out a cry of simple joy. Small but expressive. And it was the only thing heard from her as her steps were as silent as the night... Even the birds remained preoccupied as she passed. But she was sure that michio could sense her. They both were trained after all. Running up a tree, she climped onto a thin but well covered branch before relaxing.
Below were the two, and she was correct- 'A human..' Letting her brown and black spotted limb hang, she watched their interaction without a thought to bother.

He sensed it, even now as she hid in the midst of the forest he sensed her, as she sensed him. Michio glanced at the strange man in the woods, another lost traveled who has no idea what he stumbled upon. Michio shook his head. "My name's Michio, I'm one of the Villages trainers. Your not the first human to stumble in our territory." He pulled out a dagger from his side and cut a piece of cloth he carried around. He approached Tobi and wrapped it around the wound. "Its nothing serious, but I would go get some rest if I were you. Don't cause trouble." Michio waved the lad off and walked a little deeper into the forest, he knew Kumiko would follow which was a good thing as he needed to speak to her. Michio didn't want to startle anyone else, someone might end up hurt, so he decided to have his interaction out of sight. He walked a little deeper and stopped. "You can come out now Kumiko." He looked up at the tree's, "Lots of lost human's coming around lately, better be on our guards." He waited for her to show herself.

Re: Of the Forest

Can this be a thing again? γƒͺンーけゃん, pls.

Re: Of the Forest

Will get posts in later today, been busy.

Re: Of the Forest

I'll join, sounds fun. I'll make a traveller.

Re: Of the Forest

Beep boop.

Oskar post is up.

Re: Of the Forest

Mmm... Well, most likely not, but go ahead and add in what you were thinking of putting down, if you were going to put anything down! I didn't put much thought into that, so I can't say there are any restrictions on any abilities just yet.

Re: Of the Forest

Quick question, are there skills that are abnormal besides transformation?

Re: Of the Forest

Yeah! And I look forward to him when he's finished!

Re: Of the Forest

I would love to take the Male trainer if possible probably will make a character tonight!

Re: Of the Forest

I didn't think I'd make another rp for another whole week... Well, that didn't work out so well as obviously seen here xD

And I'll put you both down right away!

Re: Of the Forest

I think I'll make a lost human. Will submit a WIP version of the character soon.

Re: Of the Forest

*face palm* no worries i thought i wouldn't make another character but.. Meh
Ill take a female trainer :D

Re: Of the Forest

That's fine! Ask as many questions as you want as long as you're sure of yourself!

And yup! That'd be also correct! The regular village will probably be mostly played by NPCs other than the lost humans who will visit the hidden one, so yes, the specific roles will mostly be for the hidden village!

Re: Of the Forest

okay, i feel retarded but uh, another question. All the specific roles listed are for people residing in the hidden village right?

Re: Of the Forest

Thanks! I'll write ya down right now!

And yup! You've got it down!

Re: Of the Forest

Sooooooo, essentially there are 2 villages - one 'normal' one with the people acting somewhat like a puritian society, whereas the other village is the 'abnormal', hidden village where demons lay await? Did i get that right? XD

Re: Of the Forest

Y'know what, I'll join this one too.

I want the Guard, by the way.

Re: Of the Forest

You know it llD //slappeddead

Yeah! I'll put you down right now!

Re: Of the Forest

LOL. You're great at keeping promises. Anyways, could I please reserve the headmistress?~
