Horror RP - Sign Up:

Let your worst nightmares come true!

The premise of this roleplay is that you roleplay a person who has been kidnapped by a Mad Scientist, and has placed them in an induced coma, while plugging their minds into a computer world which is meant to be an endless nightmare. The protagonists must band together to survive in this cruel world, because if they die in this nightmare world, they'll never wake up.

The nightmare world is a culmination of everything that is fearful and dark, whether it's psychological fears, primal fears, personal phobias, or mythological terrors.

In this world, the protagonists will discover powers or abilities that they never had in the real world, and the enemy they fight is not only the simulated world (everything in that world is out to get them), but the turmoil inside of them as they struggle to survive.

First you must submit a character. They must have the following:
  • Name:
  • Appearance:
  • Back Story:
  • Personality:
  • Powers/Skills:
  • Weaknesses:
  • Fears:
  • Other Info:

  • Name: Nicole Hollis.
  • Appearance: Has long, unkempt blood-red hair, with indigo coloured eyes, ivory coloured skin, and a dark gray trench coat.
  • Back Story: Nicole was brought up in an abusive home in her childhood, and had run away to join a gang. They were arrested by the police after committing arson and burglaries, and Nicole was put in welfare before being released at age 18. She worked at a rest home, but didn't show much respect for the elderly people she was caring for. Three years later, she was walking home to her flat one day when she was abducted, and woke up in the Nightmare world.
  • Personality: Nicole is hot blooded and melodramatic. Generally apathetic, but with a mean, aggressive streak. She has an iron will that will see her through a situation, even if it kills her. Generally reserved and introspective, but with a power of will that will cause Nicole to take charge of those around her. She isn't the most intellectual of people, but is very sharp and cunning.
  • Powers/Skills: She starts out being defenseless, relying solely on her cunning and basic affinity with weapons from her days as a gang member. But as time goes by, she becomes a more competent fighter, and develops a basic affinity for telepathy and clairvoyance from her time spent in the Nightmare World.
  • Weaknesses: She is arrogant and insufferable, and acts like a complete douche around her friends and allies, often losing their trust as a result. Nicole also thinks she is stronger than she really is, and will often charge head-on into danger and almost-certain death.
  • Fears: She has nightmares of being burned alive, due to her guilt over the arson she had done when she was younger. Nicole also fears being drowned from her days of child abuse, and fears being locked away for all her years while being kept out of the outside world.

Hey DJ, just a question but, is this gonna be a DM-style RP? Like, you (as the DM) are in charge of all NP Cs, or do we (the P Cs) write NPC dialogue as well?
BYOON~!
The other P Cs can write NPC dialogue as well. I mean, I won't be here all the time, so players would need to keep the game moving while I'm gone.

  • Name: Aleister Sykes
  • Appearance: 6' 1'', smooth cornsilk hair, hazel eyes, is most often seen wearing his favorite leather coat
  • Back Story: Lived in a small Oregon town until he was eight. He had a good friend in Simon Michaels, who he'd play games with out in the forest every day. Months before his eight birthday, Simon disappeared. On the day of his birthday, Simon's remains were found scattered in the forest, arranged like an altar. The police didn't find any useful evidence, barring a small postcard. Written inside, in Simon's blood, was the simple message "Happy Birthday Aleister". His family moved shortly thereafter, trying to help him move on and forget. After years of therapy, the college sophomore Aleister has just about forgotten his old friend.
  • Personality: He appears calm and placid on the surface, but actually has a great deal of trouble trusting people, often preferring to hold them at arm's length. This proves to be a great barrier in making relationships, and thusly he has few friends. If he does grow attached to something or someone, he treasures them deeply and will do everything in his power to see no harm comes to them.
  • Powers/Skills: Has an exceptionally analytical mind and is an excellent actor.
  • Weaknesses: Paranoid, occasionally bordering on the obssessive-compulsive, has difficulty forming relationships
  • Fears: He fears losing control, and will do everything in his power to stay in control. He is also afraid of being alone without any means of contact with the outside
  • Other Info: Hobbies include writing and cooking. Is currently a part of his college's theater group

I hope I can jump in so to speak, despite your starting already :D

•Name: Elanor

•Appearance: Small, almost fairy-like in composure, light-blonde shoulder-length hair pulled into a wispy plait, big light-brown eyes that don't focus.

•Back Story: She doesn't remember much. She's blind, see, and she doesn't know since when or why; must've been recently because she's not comfortable with it at all. All she recalls is voices, bright like her sister's, calm and cooing like her mother's, comforting like her doctor's. And a recent, more malevolent voice that crooned in her ear whenever the other voices weren't talking.

•Personality: She's gentle and timid, still unstable with her blindness. She's thoughtful, but she's often so unsure of herself that she commonly relapses into silences, and finds it hard to voice her opinions. However, her determination is stone cold, and if the situation comes, she will do whatever it takes, even if it means her death, or someone else's.

•Powers/Skills: Physically, she's nothing. Mentally, she's incredibly insightful and finds purpose in actions and reactions, patterns in random sequences. She has a gift for reading people, seeing things from all perspectives. Essentially, in mind she's brilliant.

•Weaknesses: As said before, physically she's nothing. Without her friends she's helpless.

•Fears: Hearing or feeling something and not knowing what it is.

•Other Info: I'd rather her not be the Dog, even though she'll probably die :D

Thanks for reading :D

Can I start now?

Yep.

Do we all start off in a burning building, or is that just Nicole's nightmare?

EDIT: Don't worry, I already posted anyway :D

All the characters start off in the burning building. But, technically, the characters are all in a nightmare world that's not really real at all.

If you have any more questions, you should ask them in the discussion page.
