Written In Blood (Saw Movie RP) Interest Check

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby AmethystXIII on Fri Jan 14, 2011 7:44 pm

Hey RPG,

Anyone who knows me probably knew I RPed as Jack the Ripper back in '09 under Waste.'s Shadow Weavers RP. I love playing serial killers and murderers or any just regular 'ol bad guy. I love swearing, blood, agonizing riddles, etc.

That is why I am wondering if anyone is interested in doing a Saw-like RP. I wouldn't base it off the movies, but would rather create my own characters and plotline. Of course, I would play "Jigsaw" (not necessarily using that alias, but his persona yes). Someone would need to play "Amanda", could be a male or female assistant who has previously survived one of "Jigsaw"'s 'games'. I will NOT tolerate betrayal by the cohort. Meaning if the assistant wants to be a murderer, let he/she have done it before surviving the game, and then realizing that everyone should have a chance to "Cherish" their lives.. And then I would need the detectives, and victims, etc.

Obviously, I would keep it modern. The year is 2010, month of April (I like spring for horror settings, I don't know why..), and the characters have all at least heard of the modern horror movies like Saw, Friday the 13th, etc., etc.

What is required:
- A good imagination.
- A willingness to THINK. Thinking can save characters' lives, ESPECIALLY when they work together. I will probably have a hard game in the beginning, then an easy one, then harder, etc. The number of games I choose depends on the period of time I choose for the contestants to play. In the movies, this is one hour. I may make it a half hour, or four hours, or eight hours. You get the idea. You're at the mercy of my hands.
- Not necessarily a page-long post, but at least 150 words (to give you an idea, this post will be just over three times that size). The more you explain what you are thinking and doing though, the better, because your actions determine how long you will survive.
- Good, developed, non-Mary Sue characters. I need to know these characters and be able to see them if they are to play a part in my game.
- The characters do not have to have something in common, since multiple people are going to be playing different characters, and it's hard to have one thing in common among all the characters. This is one thing unalike the Saw movies. While I will have all of my contestants here, it is imperative that they are corrupt in one way or another, as a purpose for me having you all play my game.

HINT: Each contestant is given a tape, as is customary of the Saw movies. Each contestant is individual, yet the contestants are a whole team playing a part in this game. Your ears are the most valuable thing for your survival. Live or die, make your choice.

Note: During the time this game is under way, I will be keeping a character journal in which I record my observations of your characters' behaviors. Only the cohorts know of this journal and are aloud to read from it. However, contestant players may read the journal and PM me with anything they're interested/curious about.

Character Slots:
- "Jigsaw" type character (unnamed yet) - Me
- Cohort / Helper - Upfallen
- Perhaps secondary Cohort / Helper - BGGenesis

Contestants:
- Contestant One - Upfallen
- Contestant Two - Tyce
- Contestant Three - Littlesun1
- Contestant Four (optional)
- Contestant Five (optional)
- Contestant Six (optional)

Detectives:
- Urealisticreflection
- Essa
- Optional Slot
- Optional Slot

If you are interested, please post what character you would like to play. I would like to keep the male-to-female ratio fairly even between the contestants. I would also like at least one of each gender detective. The gender of the cohort(s) is wholly up to you to decide.

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me or ask here. Thanks!

Character Sheet:

Code: Select all
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Gender:[/b]
[b]Age:[/b]
[b]Physical Attributes:[/b] (Body structure)
[b]Appearance:[/b] (Posture, Common outfit types, can have a picture but must have a good description anyway)
[b]Distinguishing Features:[/b] (if any)
[b]Personality:[/b] (Have fun with this)
[b]Strengths:[/b] (What your character excels in, could be anything)
[b]Weaknesses:[/b] (Include fears/phobias/bad habits)
[b]History:[/b] (This is where I want you to really get detailed)

Saw. I love Saw. Count me in. I'll play either the Cohort, a Contestant, or both if that's possible.

Excuse me, I need to go have a fangirl moment now.

@Upfallen O_o; Well, sure, you're in. Also I don't know if there will be too many people interested anyway so you could probably have both characters. I think it goes without saying that the two characters have no affiliation with each other, other than maybe recognizing their faces or something. Also, which do you prefer, forum or the roleplay tabs?

Haha, sorry for my overenthusiasm; it's just that I've always wanted to do a Saw roleplay but have never found people competent or willing enough for it to work.

I prefer the roleplay tab; the forum still gets me all mixed up.

Bump... What is it that people would like to see first? I don't want to give away the first room without knowing the number of characters joining...

Since no one wants to, I could play a detective. I was honestly thinking about staring a Saw RP of my own just a few hours ago.

Thank you for displaying your interest, I was getting worried that there weren't any other people interested in this sort of thing. Feel free to start making up a character sheet and if you have any ideas or suggestions go ahead and say em! Same goes to the rest of you guys :)

This is probably going to be a really small group if we don't get more people interested but I have faith that my contestants will have the ability to think. Oh, and I am not having mercy for you guys at all when it comes to your characters. Really think when you do something, don't just do it and hope it works. Do it and be able to see yourself coming out the door of this place.

Alive.

Hello, I'll play the third contestant; if the spot's still open. I've only seen one or two of the movies, but I love the psychology behind Saw, and Stephen King, and all that messed up stuff!

I'll play a female, since they seem to be the minority right now. I've got an idea for her, but I feel like a horrible person now that I've come up with it... Hopefully it fits the criteria for a kidnapping (and hopefully I’ll be able to keep up, although that’ll only happen if my character’s a better thinker than I am)!

Wilkommen am die Familie!

I'll put up the RP and OOC, and you guys can start putting up your character profiles and the like. ( If I have a problem with it, I'll let you know but I don't really think I'll have much of a problem with any of them, unless they're not descriptive enough in areas that I need them to be. )

Will edit this post when everything's ready (kinda busy today so it might not be until later tonight).

Count me in too.

I would also like to play as a detective, if that's ok?
