The First Time

The First Time

0 INK

A well known Professor has been asking for assistants, and is paying handsomely! If only they knew just what they'd be doing...

806 readers have visited The First Time since The Soul one created it.

Introduction

"Perhaps it would be best... To start from the beginning. I was young, and eager, just like you are now, when the professor asked us to come with him, for adventure and wealth. With that kind of stuff in mind, who wouldn't go? If only we knew... Oh, if only we knew..."


This horror RPG is about your adventures with the professor. I will only accept original characters. You have to be human, other than that, have fun exploring with the professor...

Characters to note:
The professor. "Hand me a vial, if you will." A tall young man who is energetic and optimistic. he has black hair, pale skin, and hazel eyes. He is never seen without a lab coat. He has lately been closing himself off from the world, but has recently been putting out help wanted signs for additional assistants who will get paid outrageous sums of money, and the promise of an adventure. There is a date, April fourth, that he will no longer accept assistants, so it is assumed that he is going on a trip. What kind of trip, though, is talked about extensively, as most believe quite thoroughly that the professor is getting into the darker side of science, the side that will get him into trouble. What little did they know just what kind of trouble he and the band he was getting together would go through...

Isabella, the main assistant. "Please be careful!" A tall young woman who is said to idolize the professor. It is said that she knows his real name, though she denies it. She has been with him ever since childhood, and is obviously deeply in love with him. Her affections land on deaf ears, however, as the Professor sees her as merely a valuable asset, as she knows his needs better than anyone else. Isabella once tried to leave and live a normal life as an accountant, but just couldn't live without him, so came back. Ever since then, she's been his loyal sidekick, going everywhere with him. She is quite cautious, and is always putting safety before all else.

The roles
This is more to make things easier with making characters.

Guard. "You will scare away everyone by putting your hand on the gun at your hip." For reasons he will not disclose, the Professor insists that some 'assistants' he hires be guards, and be armed with a colt 45. He also has been secretly buying a stockpile of MK14 rifles and ammo for both types of guns. The characters discover this when they join, and may or may not be worried about what may occur in the near future.

Lab assistant. "You will help me directly, hand me vials and equipment when I call for it." The professor seems to want quite a few people who have knowledge of anatomy and how the mind works. He is willing to say that the work they do will be 'Nothing they will ever do again, hopefully!'

Extra. "You will replace anyone who runs away. Hopefully you fill the role well enough!" The Professor is willing to take anyone, be it a bum off the street, or a criminal just out of jail. He claims what he does is legal, but only because no one has done it yet.

The assignment sheet. "Just fill this out, then we can see just where you would fit best in the whole... Operation.

Risako looked towards the creature. She remembered that it's feet were mangled after what Sarana had done to it, when she glanced at it's feet again they were completely healed. She wasn't sure shooting it would kill it, but took aim for its light source and fired, she missed. Again she took aim, this time slightly to the left, again she missed. Her next bullet skimmed and ricocheted off the coppery structure of the lantern. One more shot and she hit it. All of this took place within two or three seconds. The light didn't go out however, she simply shattered it's outermost glass casing. Of course the light won't go out, it's a flame. Risako paused and studied it's lantern as it ran back into the abyss that was the hallways. She guessed the flame was burning some sort of alcohol to make it blue.

"Professor, I think it's time we take a different approach."

The creature seemed disturbed by the bullets, but not the sounds. It raised the lantern before the glass shattered, exposing the flame. It took a few steps back, then 'looked' in the direction of the group, and started walking towards them.
"Uh, I believe a swift retreat is in order..." The Professor said, backing up. As the group retreated from the creature, which approached slowly, making no noise, the lights flickered for a second, and a strange sound came from the way of the artifact, something like a moan. "Is it toying with?" Isabella asked the Professor. "Perhaps, though I doubt it. I think it's trying to get more of these... Things out." He paused. "Which means that there might be another one behind us now..." He said, looking down the hallway.
Sure enough, a blue flickering light appeared, held in a lantern by another creature, exactly identical to the other. He looked at both Craig and Risako. "Aim for it's head, the 'face', if you will." He said, looking at both of the encroaching creatures nervously. "Both of them at the same time would be nice."

Sarana looked at the two things surrounding them, more scared than she had ever been in her life. She pulled out the vial of acid, taking off its lid. She readied for a short scuffle, and stared into the thing's eyes. She swirled the acid, getting it active, and then chucked half on to the creature in front of her then the thing behind her. Risako and Craig shot at the things as she did this, and they then quickly fled while the creatures screamed. They ran around the house, eventually finding a small room that was hard to spot it made itself so small looking. They dove into the room and blocked the door, panting, pumped full of adrenaline. "Shit."

Re: The OOC

nope no idea

Re: The OOC

Anyone know what happened to Makaay?

Re: The OOC

Just in case someone did not notice, we started posting in 'Places.'

Re: The OOC

This looks very interesting. Can't wait to start.

Re: The OOC

One more, then I'll start the first post.

Re: The OOC

All I was looking at was more like three people, so we just need two more. If more sign up before we start, the more the merrier.

Re: The OOC

So how many characters can be made before we start? Like, to we have to wait for six people to join or whatever?

Re: The OOC

Perfectly alright. This would be the second RP I have started on this site, but I am in several RP's that are progressing smoothly. I'll PM you if I have any concerns! :)

Re: The OOC

Hi, I'm going to put up a character soon. This is my first roleplay so if you have any feedback or suggestions don't be afraid to share.
