Introduction

Image
Image

Image

In Dune-May there are vast forests, lakes and a very unpredictable weather forecast. There, where trees outnumber people, lives a small population of human beings. They’re pretty simple folk, branded mountaineer gear isn’t a fashion statement, but things that are reliable are. There’s a town in Dune-May and most people live in houses that surround it, a few live in homes that are a stones throw from the forest canopy. A majority of the houses round there are wooden and the rest are stone.

Image
Image

Dune-May is lucky to even be on a map, if it wasn’t for the stunning views and whimsical history they’d be forgotten about. Dune-May is vaguely known for it’s eerie history, talk of Pixies in the woods and other unnatural presences is nothing uncommon for the locals. Visitors hang on the tales of mystical occurrences and sightings like they truly believe…but it’s all nonsense to pull the tourists in. Right?

Perhaps, I wasn’t sure until this autumn but now I am certain. Dune-May is no fairy-tale. Some serious shit is about to hit the fan and it all started with the new kid…

Image
…I’m not going to tell you it.
There’s a school and community college in Dune-May for all the local kids, this roleplay will be about a small selection of these kids and a mysterious new boy who joins in the autumn semester. That’s all I’m going to tell you. In this roleplay you will know only as much as your character. You will receive Private Messages and group updates in the OOC about plot developments and new information but that’s all for now. Unexpected! ಥuಥ

Main Characters:

[TAKEN] The New Boy: Entering Dune-May at the start of the autumn semester he is a brand new face, and from a glance is eerily attractive. (I said attractive not godly) He seems reserved and thoughtful. Probably shy, being the new kid in a small town is quite a big deal.
Will Private message this character immediately with plot details.

[TAKEN] The Schools female track Champion: A girl who is athletic and competitive. Deeply cherished by schools populace. Ideal date.
Will receive a Private message later on.

[OPEN] The Schools male track Champion: A boy who is athletic, competitive and strong-willed. Deeply admired by schools populace. Bit of a Heart-throb. Ideal date.
Will receive a Private message later on.

[TAKEN] The highland beauty:
A girl who doesn’t need to try hard to look good, she’s natural and doesn’t fight nature with a platter of makeup. Just because she’s natural does not mean she likes nature though. Too intimidating to date.
Will receive a Private message later on.

[TAKEN] The delinquent: Every school has one, this boy breaks the few rules Dune-May school actually cares about. He’s not the kind of big-city bad boy that ends up in jail, but he’s not on the top of everyone’s good-list either. He’s not bad looking, shame his personality is a little bit ugly. Everybody fancies a bad-boy but they rarely date them.
Will receive a Private message later on.

[TAKEN] The Barbarian: A girl who should have been a boy. Difficult, stubborn, head-strong and feisty. Scruffy, slender and a stereo-typical tomboy. You could try a date, if you wanted a punch in the groin.
Will receive a Private message later on.

[TAKEN] The Gothic Gale: A girl who tends to be associated with voo-doo dolls and witches. Not ‘typically’ gothic but as close to gothic as a person gets in Dune-May. Could be described as whimsical. Not considered date material.
Hey everybody it’s my character!

I’m not one to pile on the rules and regulations but I’ll run through a few things:

Image
Swearing, sexual reference, violence etc. Are all things that are accepted and expected in an PG13 role-play like this one. However, unnecessary vulgarity or RPG rule breaking will not be tolerated.

Image
Drop-outs are not acceptable. Players who intend to be away, or are unable to get online for a short period of time will be easily excused with a quick OOC message or PM letting me and other players know. Simply going missing for a number of days will result in your character being dismissed and left behind in the role-play. Pretty reasonable right?

Image
This is the kind of role-play where players should communicate in the OOC as well as IC. It’s nice to have a little chin-wag on the OOC so don’t be strangers, being friends outside of the plot means we’ll stay together longer and enjoy the development a lot more. So much past experience.

Image
I’m looking for a good group of players who know how to play a character well, who are really looking for a good role-play that’s on the small side. As for literature, I’m hoping you’ll be able to write 2 paragraphs per post at least, I’m not asking for a manuscript, just a decent read. If you cannot spell, please use spell-check on your posts, spelling is a pet-peeve! Don’t let it win!

This will be added to over the course of the role-play. Please use real images.

Code: Select all
Name: (Go to font meme.com to create a funky name plate)

Personality: Please write a good amount here. This will be the personality of your character for the beginning of the roleplay, make them nasty, make them nice, they can always change later on just like normal human beings.

Dune-may. Population of roughly 5000. Situated in the wilderness, surrounded by trees, wildlife and foolish myth. An old town built up over the decades by stories and tales of mythical roots to draw in tourists. Everybody likes to hear about the Pixies in the woods, the half-man half-beast’s that come out at night and the unicorns that can only be spotted in the light of a full moon. Outsiders lick up the nonsense like a fat cat licks cream. We locals roll our eyes and humour the legends for the sake of the town.

Of course everybody knows the myths are just a money making scandal. Right?

You couldn’t be more wrong.
You really couldn’t…
- Lyra Maine.






8.30am- Start of Autumn Semester- The beginning of the end.

Leaning against the window Lyra stared out at the forest, it went on for miles and miles, like a green ocean. Birds flew out in clusters before flying back in again. Various trees moved as if something large was pushing them out of the way to make a path but she knew it was really just the wind.

Lyra Maine lived with her Nana on the outskirts of the forest but that wasn’t anything special, the entire town was situated around the same forest, they just happened to live right on it’s door step. The forest was fairly big but from what Lyra could see she was pretty sure it covered a significant surface of the earth.
Their home was surrounded by trees, a steep gravel driveway led up to the old stone house and you could just about see the rooftop peeking over the forest canopy from the main road. It was a solid home, with sooty smoke chugging out of the chimney more often than not.

Moving away from the window the young girl plodded her way out of her bedroom and down the stairs. After a brief break it was time to return to school. She didn’t mind school itself just the people she shared it with. Miss Maine was not Miss popular. Locking up the house she got into her rusty old motor and after a few failed starts, began her drive to the local community school. Her nana worked most days at the local hospital, she was a robust woman with no ability to sit still and relax.

Mulling over the day to come Lyra soon pulled into the school parking lot and blended back into the social status her fellow students had kindly bestowed her with. A group of male youths thumped on the side of her car whilst laughing amongst themselves. Lyra glanced at them in her rear-view mirror and smiled sarcastically.

“Yeah real helpful Mason!” she yelled whilst inching forwards through the school crowd. People always flocked to the car-park in the mornings, it made getting in and parking so much harder than it needed to be.

'You have to be the wind, Maggie. Be the wind. You are the wind. You're the birds high in the sky. Fly, Maggie Mae. Faster. Higher. Go.'

His voice whispered through the trees as she ran past them, leaves and sticks crushing underfoot. Her heartbeat throbbed in her ears, and every breath sounded like an avalanche in the quiet of the woods. Faster. Trees blurred past her vision until there was only the ground and the sky. She had been running for hours and her lungs burned in protest of her relentless routine. She had run the path so many times now, she could close her eyes and never even brush a limb. Finally unable to breathe, she came to a sudden stop by the back road that would lead many teenagers to school. Taking a soothing breath, she proceeded towards campus at a slow and steady jog. Once she reached campus, she made her way to the locker rooms (also known as her home-away-from-home, since she spent so much time there). After a hot shower, she set about getting ready for the school day. She always kept school clothes in her locker, for mornings like this when time escaped her. Once her outfit was complete, she headed outside into the crisp autumn air.

As usual, the parking lot was filled with students who arrived early specifically to socialize. As class president, she didn't get a lot of time to socialize in the mornings but today was different. Since it was the start of the term, she had yet to meet up with the principal to find out what she would be working on for the next couple months. Therefore, just for today, she would have the morning off from all respective duties and get to hang out with friends. As she was going to cross the parking lot, she was cut off by a rustic looking Mercedes. Maggie was never one to judge, but the vehicle left an awful smell behind it. To her dismay, she caught a glimpse of the girl driving it. Lyra. Lyra Maine... and sure enough, Mason and his boys were starting the semester off by terrorizing her. “Yeah, real helpful Mason!” Maggie heard her call to the boys. Oh, Lyra... why do you have to be so.... weird? If you could be like everyone else... then maybe people wouldn't pick on you so much... Maggie sighed and continued across the parking lot to the courtyard in front of the school. Sure enough, her favorite spot under the oak tree was wide open, aside from Hannah, one of her good track friends.

Smiling, Maggie waved to the girl and joined her under the tree. "Going to be a tough year this year. I hear that Southdell got Kyle Porter over the summer," Hannah said as Maggie sat down. "Kyle Porter? Are you serious? I thought he was in our district?" "Apparently someone has some strings.." "God... we really needed him!" "Yeah, tell me about it. Did you hear about Sam?" The girl's chatter went on for some time, and eventually they were joined by the other track runners.

The alarm rang signalling the start of yet another day in hell. Helena groaned and she pulled her soft pink pillow over her head. She kicked her feet under she sheets sending wave after wave of her poka-doted covers over her and finally until they were off the bed. Her little tantrum had caused her to loose what warmth the sheets had provided. Groaning at her lack of foresight Helena forced herself up and she sat cross legged on her bed. The sheets lay in a mess on the floor and she stuck her tongue out at them. She let her eyes drift up to the mirror that hung across the wall and she observed herself.

She wore a light tank top and shorts, her red hair was a mess and sat in waves upon her head. She mumbled something about hard work and then crawled off the bed and made her way right for the mirror. There along the shelf underneath it lay copious amounts of bottles, she grabbed one and after squeezing some of the lotion onto her hand she applied some to her cheeks and forehead.

Helena took a good hour to get ready and when she was done she found herself dressed most casually for school with a black tee, jeans and a scarf. She looked over herself one last time and then went to grab her back which was filled to the brim with school books and with one novel; one of her favourites The Witch and the Warrior She was a sucker for her romance novels and always took one with her where ever she went.
Image
She grabbed a quick breakfast, which was mainly a banana and orange juice and kissed her mother good bye. Helena walked out hoisting her heavy bag higher up her shoulder and she frowned at the fresh air and missed the sounds and sights of the city for the millionth time. She gazed at her mothers car and wished she had her own but they couldn't afford it. She gave the rubber tire a swift kick and groaned at the sudden pain in her toe.

The trek to school wasn't all that long but tiresome all the same. Helena was in a soft pant and her shoulder was in pain but she had made it to school all the same. The parking lot was full of cars already and happy students. She gazed around and looked for a few of her own friends but saw none. She continued on walking when she noticed Lyra driving along looking for a spot. She sighed softly and looked away, it wouldn't do to be associated with her. Instead she spotted Maggie sitting among her friends and was about to see her when she was flocked by the entire track team.

Helena wrinkled her nose at the idea of running and so instead of saying hello she found herself a nice spot on the front of the school steps. They were large concrete steps that spanned across the entire school entrance. She dug out her book and opened it to the spot from where she had left off the night before. She settled into the story brushing her hair back over her neck as she read.

Please have your characters make their way to school or whatever :D exciting stuff. SO PUMPED FOR THIS!!

Re: The First Werewolf

Right sorry people, :) I was actually waiting for the track champ to be submitted cause the player asked for a few days grace but...it's been more than a few days hasn't it so, blah were moving on :) I'm sorry for the wait, I also had exams :( and still do but y'know this can be my timeout break from doing revision and stuff :)

Anyway :) we shall be starting very soon :) just doing the finishing touches okay :D

Re: The First Werewolf

Yeah--is this dead? From my understanding, she was waiting for another person to post a character for the delinquent. I guess I misunderstood and someone else reserved it besides Hal, who went with the new guy instead? Maybe it was a PM reserve? I don't know. But I think she's waiting for that character to be posted before starting.

That, or this really is dead. Care to enlighten us all, OP? I'm quite confused at the moment, and I was looking forward to this... >.<

Re: The First Werewolf

I hope its not... I was really looking forward to this.

Re: The First Werewolf

I have been wondering the same thing... I haven't heard from anyone :/

Re: The First Werewolf

So, this is dead?

Re: The First Werewolf

Hi :). Could I reserve the tomboy?

Re: The First Werewolf

It's awesome :D sorry, i've been caught up with making my own character and stuff :P There are currently two competitors for the deliquient, however I am willing to make another spot for either guy depending on whether they're both acceptable (still waiting on one to be completed) so stay tuned people!!

I'll be uploading my girl soon aswell :) Peace out people!!

Re: The First Werewolf

Hello, there. I love how you set this up with so much anonymity... I'm quite intrigued.
Put me down as the delinquent, if you would be so kind. ^^

Re: The First Werewolf

I see Maggie Mae got accepted ^^ (can I just say.. I love her name SO much.. lol) I hope you like her!

Excited to see everyone!!!

Re: The First Werewolf

All characters in this roleplay play a big part, there aren't really any "in the shadows" characters, therefore even though the new boy comes with a bit of extra responsibility, it's wont be far off any of the other characters :) that's why it's important for players to be dedicated :)

@christy Hope you get back to me soon for Hal's sake :)

Edit: never mind :P ill reserve for you :) ill be sending you a pm tomorrow hall about plot etc.

Re: The First Werewolf

Ah don't let me stop you, go for it! (:
I'll reserve the track star then.

Re: The First Werewolf

Hey! I just saw that ChristyLovesYou is thinking about making the New Boy but isn't sure. If she doesn't want to do it or if I am able to then I would like to play the New Boy. If I can't that is fine and I am good with just reserving The delinquent instead.
