Hello and welcome! Come here to discuss the plot of the Rp or anything that happens to be on your mind. Have any questions? Ask them. Just want to chat? Go for it!

As a side note. I'm not going to start posting until another person joins and we discuss some of the plot. I want everyone to have a say on what's going on in the Rp. Also, no shows until we get a Ringmaster.

I posted a character sheet for the Ringmaster. And I made him into a she, seeing as you said that it didn't have to stay male - I thought it would make things interesting. I'm hoping on making her someone that's confident, commands respect, looks down on the weak, strict...etc, but not overly cruel. Not to say she's gonna be sweet and kind and everyone's going to love her. She's still meticulous, making people redo their routines over and over, and she is mean, but not vicious or always angry. If you get the meaning? But anyways, I left the last part blank. I'm kind of not sure how she came about. Is she in on everything, or is the Ticketmaster the only person that knows everything that's going on? Would really appreciate your input. (:

Wow, you got the Ringmaster down just how I wanted her to be. I'll have to change the gender in the intro thingy but yeah. She sounds perfect we'll develop her more as the Rp goes. She is in on everything. She is the boss of the circus and the Ticketmaster is simply there to make sure that she, or anyone else, doesn't go overboard. You can have her interact with the Ticketmaster if you wish but I'm mostly reserving that character for "scaring" some sense into the other characters and picking out new talents at the shows.
Hm... shall we start in the main tent with everyone practicing for their acts then? Also, since we are seriously lacking clowns we can use them as NPC's. Yeah, now that I think about it that may be the best way to get everyone to interact. What do you think?

Oh, okay. I was thinking the Ticketmaster/Ringmaster relationship was different. So she's the boss over everything and is the one that forces everyone to stay? Does she really answer to the Ticketmaster, then?

That's as good a place as any to start; and guess we could ahead and begin. But I think for the RP to really take off we need a few more people, maybe some more guys? But I don't know, haha. Whatever you like.(:

The Ticketmaster doesn't do much. He's more like a silent guardian that looks over the circus. In the end he only wants what will keep the cirque alive. He picked the Ringmaster and allowed her to become as powerful as she is. They are connected but if he feels that she is abusing her powers or if she is putting the cirque at risk he can and will step in. He doesn't take orders from her or anyone but he's not against her... at the moment. Does that make a bit more sense?

They both force people to stay. The Ticketmaster isn't human and has made the contracts bindings very literal. The Ringmaster also doesn't want anyone to leave and (hopefully for the sake of plot twists and side stories) people will sneak away from the cirque and the Ringmaster could send the Ticketmaster to "fetch" them.

Ah, okay, thanks! If needed, send me a PM to inform me of any specific plot twists, sub-plots, or any information needed to run the cirque. If not, I'm just gonna kind of play it by ear. :) This is gonna be fun!

I submitted my freak and animal trainer. I was wondering if maybe my freak/werewolf could be one of the ringmasters favorites or something because he favors her. If not, that is fine. (:

I was hoping that the freaks would stay at the bottom of the barrel but this could be interesting... What do you think Reianna?

I posted as well. Since I am not aware about Ian being favored I have him in his cage.

@Angel: No need to reserve a clown or freak as they're numbers are unlimited (for now). Go ahead and take your time and submit your profile. You'll get your spot. ^^

@Kelsiikhoas: Yeah... my brain just gave up on me. I'll stay on a but longer and see if anyone else wants to join (plus I want the others to post their intros before we move on), otherwise I'll post again after work tomorrow. ^^ Your post looks good though. You'll probably get a replay about Ian's situation tomorrow.

I think it would be really interesting if Shae had a favorite. All the other freaks would probably feel jealous, or angry or something. Which could spark some pretty fun side stories.(: So, yeah, I'm fine with that. I can't post now (on my phone) but I will ASAP!

Okay, so I can post now. Are you going to change it so Ian isn't put in the cage; or do you want me to just post?

EDIT: Or, you can leave your post as is, and I can have Shae unlock the cage? So then Ian is held to the same rules, but Shaelynn breaks them for him, personally. So no one else is held accountable sort of thing. I'll go ahead and post, and when you get on you can tell me what you like best and I can edit it. (:
