---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

⊗ A history of the Slenderman ⊗


The Slender Man is a creature or being with various nebulously defined characteristics and abilities. Slender Man generally appears (in modern times) as a tall man in a black or grey suit, red or black tie, and white shirt, with no eyes, mouth, or clearly defined facial features. It has no hair, and generally has normal-looking bare hands. Slenderman typically is depicted in imagery and literature as between 6 and 15 feet tall, depending on the situation, and in video as around 6-7 feet tall. Because of its inexact nature, and differences between series, no one has yet determined what it is. Currently, the two leading theories as to what the Slenderman may be are the Tulpa Effect and Quantum Theory.

Slenderman's original abilities included invisibility to select people, adult humans, or anyone without use of a camera, the ability to change height and body shape, the ability to shape its arms into tentacles, and the ability to sprout tentacle-like appendages from its back and shoulders to be used as additional arms or legs (or simply to instill fear into its prey). Slender Man also had connections to children, with many of the original stories revolving around disappearing children or featured Slender Man being sighted in photos with children.

EMH, TT, ML, and DH all contain some sort of video and/or audio distortion, indicating that Slenderman has some sort of effect on modern digital instruments. This does not appear in any of the original accounts- however these mostly make use of photographs and video of primarily lower-tech varieties. EMH Has applied this distortion to be the effect of "Sigma Radiation", a radiation given off by Slender Man and The Rake. Sigma Radiation is also contagious, as it entered Evan's blood-stream when his arm is brutally maimed by The Rake.

EMH and ML also make use of "Slenderwalking", a term created to describe Slenderman's apparent teleportation, appearing, and disappearing at will. EMH independently indicates the use of selective invisibility to groups or individuals through head tilting, and also spacetime warping/teleportation between locations. Similar abilities were seen in early Slenderman accounts. EMH also hints at the affecting of mental health or control of it.

Slenderman has no exactly defined or specified history, however contributors have placed early sightings of Slenderman-like beings known as Der Ritter and Der Großmann in early 1600s German and before, where it took the dress of a knight or royal figure. Germanic fairy tales and mythology also makes use of the creatures to be used as cautionary tales for children.

Photographs from the early 1900s were the next confirmed reports, where imagery of Slenderman can be found in classical black and white and sepia imagery. Reports from this time indicate sightings in America, the UK, and Russia, as well as reports of child disappearances.

By the mid-1900s, some rare run-ins occured in the warzones in Germany, apparently Slenderman's native land. Soldiers were the primary targets here. In America and Canada, reports of missing skiers and children appeared, coming from forested areas of the nations. After a spree of building burnings from unknown causes, several deaths and a few surviving witnesses, it could be gathered that the Slenderman had the following traits:


  • Slenderman will find interest in a victim for reasons unknown
  • It would then contact the victim, if it is a child, presenting itself as friendly
  • The adults he stalks have a common trait: they have all been through a terrible tragedy in their life, even if the tragedy was made by Slenderman directly
  • If an adult, it would stalk the victim for long amounts of time causing what is known as "Slender sickness" causing massive paranoia, nose bleeds, nightmares, hallucinations appearing to only the sick person, and many other dangerous symptoms.
  • Eventually, it would abduct the victim into nearby forest, where they would be killed.
  • In 'messy' cases, it may remove evidence of its existence by causing fire of their home, place of work, or school

Death of the victim originally occured through an odd means- the victim would be impaled on branches of very tall trees while still alive, and bleed to death. The organs would be individually removed, then placed in plastic bags. They would then be replaced into the body in their original positions, plus the plastic bags. The victims' corpses do not show any sign of a struggle. In the late 1990s, technology shed more light on the creature through the use of commonplace cameras and camcorders. Slenderman was recorded and photographed stalking potential victims many times. In the late 2000s to early 2010s, several individuals recorded ongoing stalking and attack scenarios of themselves and their friends. These video accounts are codenamed Marble Hornets, EverymanHYBRID, DarkHarvest00, MLAndersen0, and TribeTwelve. As well as certain Rivn videos.

Darlene gasped in surprise as Evan suddenly approached her, his eyes filled with intensity. She stepped back from Clementine as Evan came closer and closer to her. His eyes met Darlene's; the way he glared at her made Darlene feel a bit unsafe being near him. Evan simply stated that Darlene needed to leave. She dropped her jaw in awe. This was not part of the plan.

"Evan, listen," Darlene gently placed her hand on Evan's chest and gave a slight push. He didn't budge a bit. "I can't just leave. Like I've said a million times, I want to find this girl. Faith. I don't know where to start, though. The reason I came here was to ask you if we could search together," Darlene looked at the others. There was a new guy she didn't recognize in the diner. She rolled her eyes at him and returned her focus back to Evan.

"Maybe we could all search for her together," Darlene slowly took a step back, finally looking away from Evan's eyes. She now knew that he was not someone to mess with. However, that didn't stop her wanting to find Faith.

Alex continued to stand awkwardly, not sure if he was intruding on something he wasn't supposed to see. The woman addressing Evan seemed only slightly cowed as Evan stared her down. That alone was impressive; Alex remembered times that Evan's glare would cow him into a near-catatonic submission if not scare him away completely. Not only that, but his tone held that icy tone that meant something unholy and terrifying was bound to happen. Alex was about to intervene when the woman spoke, surprising Alex again in that she managed to defy Evan's death glare. However, what she was saying had more of an impact. Immediately he knew why Evan had summoned him. Faith. Alex forced himself to stay calm, knowing that thinking about Faith made his black moods come with a vengeance, then decided to announce himself to Evan, who clearly hadn't heard him come in. "So that's what this is about. I should have guessed."

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Please do make a remake! I'll join for sure. :)

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

I'll probably restart this. I'm awfully confused on what happened to everyone. I'll post an edit to this post with the new link, as well as a post on the actual RP.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Hey is this still alive? If so, and if you wouldn't mind, I would love to rejoin this since I was in the last one. I would be using the same character.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

I'll do just that. Probably later, though.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

No idea. Perhaps start PMing people?

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

I'm just glad you posted... And it's good for how short it is~

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Real sorry about the shitty short post, but it's the best I could manage. I've been really busy lately with classes and such.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Really anyone could post at this point if they wanted, except for Darlene. I figured I'd wait for the other Characters' reactions before I responded to Darlene.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

I was supposed to post, wasn't I.

I'm really sorry; I've been really busy with summer classes. I'll see what I can do.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Sorry guys. I skipped town for the weekend, but now I'm back home with my beloved laptop. I'll post as soon as I read the new posts you guys put.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

I'll post after you Armageddon.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Hey Armageddon, Id like to revive my character from the other one if im not too late :P

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Sorry for such a late posting with my character. I was busy with life today, but it's up now!

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Hey, just as a heads up, there's a few things about this RP I wanna mention...


  • After the first night searching and everyone goes home, they have to resume their normal lives in the morning. Job, etc. You can use this time to just talk to other characters or NPC's for information. Someone might know something that could help you out on your search.

  • There will be several times that your character may be alone or with only one or two other players during the day, and at that point, I'll control NPC's and such for you to talk to. You can use this time as a way to get to know other characters better, build relationships, that sort of thing.

  • Everyone has a cellphone or house phone, so keep in mind that if two characters are far apart, you can just call and talk as well. Don't forget you're able to.

  • Your character has a low chance of dying, but a slightly higher chance of being taken by Slendy and turned into one of his Proxies. (Pretty much a servant for Slendy, like Alex or Masky in MarbleHornets)

  • If you have a question about how the RP will work, don't be afraid to PM me!


Just thought I'd say :)

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Hooray.

Thanks for picking me, all in all.

Re: Slenderman: The Story of Halbrooke

Hey DeviousWolf I think it would be interesting if your character and mine had a history together with Ethan as Frank's former partner/apprentice. I'll pm you with ideas later. But, for now when we meet up later, we have a sort of love/hate relationship with Ethan sort of distrusting Frank, and Frank being standoffish towards Ethan. But, nevertheless they work together like they used to to try and find the girl. Sounds good?
