    open/close all folders 

    A-C 
  • Abusive Parents: Cecily and Cassa had abusive fathers and it's a sore subject for both.
  • Accidental Aiming Skills: Gill, as he manages to pierce Donovan in the place where his heart should be.
  • Action Girl: Cecily North and Cassa Sforza.
  • Action Survivor: Tony.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: After Silas tells Alucard that he talks to much, Alucard just chuckles and agrees with the assessment.
  • Adorkable: Fang.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Alucard and Cassa call each other “Big Troublemaker” (Alucard) and “Little Troublemaker” (Cassa). It’s actually cuter than you’d think.
  • A God Am I: Donovan does not hesitate to call himself a god.
  • A God I Am Not: Cassa dislikes being compared to a god, even though she owned up to it once.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Donovan's death at the hands of his "wife", Josephine.
  • Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: Cassa drunkenly insulting the witchcraft god and leaving her weapon at her seat probably wasn’t the smartest idea.
  • All Deaths Final: All players who die in the show are permanently killed off. They don't resurrect in their homeworld.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Cecily with Donovan, Cassa with Alucard, and Gwen with Draco.
  • Alucard: The roleplay has one. Whether he's actually Dracula or just loves anime remains to be seen.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Cassa. She says she has always been more interested in women, but is in a seemingly happy relationship with a man.
  • An Arm and A Leg: Donovan and Alucard both lose their arms in the Silent Hill world.
  • Anyone Can Die
  • Armor-Piercing Question: It's more an Armor-Piercing Speech, but Cecily's speech to Alucard about his trying to kill Cassa. He's surprised by how much it affects him.
    • Ember verbally attacks Tony and Gill over their shortcomings: Tony's perceived uselessness and Gill's lying about hunting vampires.
    • The Morrigan asking Donovan why he hasn't killed the entire group yet. It's one of the few times Donovan is left speechless.
  • Artificial Limbs: Cecily has a prosthetic arm of her own design. She even offers to build Cassa new legs.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Fang.
  • Awesome Mc Coolname: Tony Hellsing and Gill Mc Fearson.
  • Back from the Dead: The Players' deaths in Silent Hill don't stick, although they're not completely alive yet. They have to go through The World Ends with You first.
  • Badass Boast: Cassa and Donovan both give one to each other during their fight.
    Cassa: *after Donovan says he'll erase her* "Oh, you can try to erase me. It wouldn’t be my first time. A better monster than you tried and failed! I’ve seen life after death and it’s nothing but a never-ending void filled with your greatest sins and your biggest regrets. I’ve been there and I came back stronger, with powers than you probably can’t even dream of, you unimaginable bastard. But, I have something to say to death. Not today.”
    Donovan: "A better monster? Did you know, Cassa, that there are no vampires on my world? Not truly. The word doesn't exist there. It is common elsewhere, I've found, and it applied to me well enough that I've taken it for myself. But... a vampire, I am not. Nor are the creatures I have sired. Nightborne. I was the first, though. In a time of desperation I prayed to any god that would listen... and finally one did. A being of chaos, he made me what I am. Got carried away, I think. Stuffed me with too much. No creature I have sired can do all of the things I can do.The Man in Red, they called me. Still do, actually, though these days I am more of a legend I suppose. What I'm saying is this, there is no monster better than the one before you now."
  • Badass Bookworm: Cecily North. Medical doctor, engineer, wielder of a hyper-diamond warhammer and wrecker of your shit.
  • Badass Crew: The Players of the BDRP.
  • Badass Gay: Cassa (Bisexual) ; Cecily (Bisexual)
  • Badass Normal: Tony and Gill.
  • Badass Longcoat: Alucard wears one.
  • Bag of Holding: Cassa seems fond of them and even shoves an angry goddess into one.
  • Bar Brawl: Cassa and Cecily were forced the fight the Morrigan in the Hog's Head.
  • Batman Gambit: Donovan is running one against the ENTIRE team.
    • He runs a smaller one in his fight against Cassa, deliberately allowing her to bite his fingers so that enough of his blood, which he can control, is in her body so it can kill her.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Between Cecily and Donovan.
  • Berserk Button:
    • NEVER call Cecily a cyborg or tell her that her friends died.
    • Do not threaten or insult Cassa (Or say she died) in front of Alucard.
    • With Cassa, don't threaten or harm any of her loved ones.
    • Don't tell Donovan that someone is "a better monster". Don't threaten Cecily. Don't kill anyone he feels he has sole right to kill.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Cassa is hard to truly make angry, but when she is, expect less-restrained-than-usual use of powers.
  • Bi the Way: Cassa and Cecily. Cassa casually mentions she's "always looked at girls more". Cecily seems to have a crush on Cassa.
  • Big Bad: Lucius P. Slender.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: “Grimm”. His actions have been pretty diabolical, thus far.
  • Bigger Bad: Lucius is the game master, but Donovan is the one the rest of the group needs to be worried about.
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: It looks like many of the characters come from unhappy families.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Cassa has spoken in Italian a few times.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Donovan using his acting skills to fool the rest of the team in false security.
  • Blood Magic: One of Donovan's vampiric powers.
  • Bloody Horror: The Silent Hill basement and the lake.
  • Bottomless Magazines: Cecily’s gun had self-replenishing ammo.
  • Broken Pedestal: Donovan, to Cassa. She's furious at the fact that he lied to her and refers to him as a monster when he tries to kill her. However, now that she has conveniently forgotten her death, the rapport between them and her trust in him is intact, for now.
  • Break the Cutie: The game seems to revolve around this.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Alucard and Cassa have shades of this.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Cassa loses all of her powers in the Silent Hill world.
  • British Stuffiness: Cecily. Donovan is considerably much more loose.
  • Bullying a Dragon: The Mother implies that Donovan is doing this by killing Cassa and that it won't end well for him.
  • Came Back Strong: Cassa reveals she's been "erased" before, but instead of staying that way, she came back as a reality-warping living god.
  • Canada, Eh?: Cassa and Alucard live in Canada in their world.
  • Characters Dropping Like Flies: For a while, characters were joining and leaving very quickly and only a handful of characters have been mainstays of the roleplay.
  • Characterization Marches On:
    • Cecily: She started the role-play as a fairly serious Proper Lady who could barely care about her teammates or their well-being. While she had a sharp tongue, she very rarely swore and was prone to fainting. Now, she is a berserker-style, foul-mouthed combat medic who refuses to be a victim and who serves as one of the driving forces of the group. She's also a defrosting ice queen who clearly does care about her teammates in her own way.
    • Cassa: She started as a hot-tempered, foul-mouthed, prideful woman who did not shy away from using her reality-bending powers and also did not hesitate to get into verbal fights with Cecily and Strada. She has become The Pollyanna Team Mom of the group, more humble, unable to trust herself with her own powers and very rarely uses a swear word. She's retained some of her prideful mannerisms, especially when she gets backed into a corner.
  • Chew Toy: Alucard. He's been shot in the stomach by Cecily, shot through the throat by Lucius, choked out by Gill's scarf, cut in the chest by Pyramid Head, had his arm ripped off, kicked in the hip by Cecily (after killing her), and is now the target of revenge from Donovan. Thank goodness he's a vampire or else there's no way he'd survive.
  • Clothing Combat: Gill's scarf is useful in a fight.
  • Choke Holds: Gill's scarf puts Alucard in one when the latter tries to attack Officer Bennett.
  • Combat Medic: Cecily, being the group's main healer, strategist, and enthusiastic fighter.
  • Combat Pragmatist: When told to partner up in TWEWY, Gill deliberately chooses one of the strongest people there: Donovan.
  • Commonality Connection: Most characters have found things in common that deepened their relationships.
  • Compliment Backfire: Cecily called Cassa the "sweetest, nicest mongrel" to Alucard's face.
  • Consummate Liar: Lucius Slender and Donovan Shier.
  • Continuity Reboot: The Silent Hill restart.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: What Lucius can do with the quarter is cool, but what he does to the tree group is just wrong.
  • Cool Sword: Cassa with her rapier, and Donovan with his techno-sword.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Cecily, impaled on a teammate's hand in the Silent Hill world.
    • Cassa's heart is sliced to ribbons by Donovan's blood magic in the Silent Hill world.
    • Tony is stabbed by a fiery blade.
    • Gill is strangled with his own scarf.
    • Fang is poisoned, picked apart and crushed, then immolated.
    • Silas and Alucard drown in a lake of blood and alcohol, more than likely eaten by the things living in the lake.
    • Donovan gets disintegrated.
  • Crush Blush: Cecily turns red when she compliments Cassa, calling her sweet, nice, and beautiful.
  • Cry into Chest: A drunken Cecily does this to Cassa in the Firefly world.

    D-G 
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Almost all of the Players have, or are implied to have, a dark past.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Cassa. She has dark tan skin and black hair, but follows an oath and a code when it comes to using her god-like power and is a very kind person. Compare to Donovan's Light is Not Good.
  • Deadpan Snarker: All of the characters have had a snark moment.

  • Defiant to the End: Cecily and Cassa.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Cecily, in spades, to the point where she defends Cassa's honor.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Donovan, with no one being the wiser now that Strada and James are gone.
    • Gill (and possibly Tony) is now wise to his game, having been present when Ember revealed Donovan's past.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: Lucius Slender is not above threatening the team with this.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Cassa punches Vaati straight in the eye.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Even before his hunger came back, Alucard's proposed punishments for Cecily (after she called Cassa a mongrel) were a little on the excessive side.
  • Dramedy: The entire Big Damn Roleplay.
  • Drinking on Duty: Everyone goes off in search of the portal or other worthwhile pursuits. Cecily and Cassa hit up a bar.
  • Drop the Hammer: Cecily has an impossibly cool war hammer now. It’s only a matter of time before she bashes some heads with it.
  • Drunk with Power: Donovan gives off shades of this, most recently in his battle with Cassa, when he explains that he was the first of his kind and no other Nightborne he's sired can do what he does.
  • Dwindling Party: Once Cecily dies in Silent Hill, the group dies off one-by-one.

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Donovan has his wife and daughter, Josephine and Dahlia.

  • Evil Counterpart: Donovan, to Cassa.

  • Family-Unfriendly Death: True to Silent Hill's nature, no one died a pleasant death.
  • Famous Last Words:
    • "I don't want to go..." - Rufina

    • "But, I have something to say to death. Not today." - Cassa (Silent Hill death)
    • "No." - Fang (Silent Hill death)
    • "Can you please let us go?" - Tony (Silent Hill death)
    • It is a bit hot in here. Wherever here is. I really should be going home, I'm sure I have clients... Or maybe this was the week my mom was visiting. Who remembers right?" - Gill (Silent Hill death)
    • "We're gonna need to bail. I think I've got a way out, but I need to know if you can run." - Alucard (Silent Hill death)

    • The Big Damn Trio: The three "main" characters of the roleplay: Donovan, Cassa, Cecily.
    • Council of Doom: The group of villains in the roleplay. So far, it consists of Lucius, Donovan, and Catherine. Lucius is head of the council. Donovan is the backstabbing vice-head.
  • Fights Like a Normal: Despite being able to warp reality, Cassa does not use that awesome power in a fight.
  • Fingore: Cassa bites Donovan's fingers hard enough to draw blood when he tries to rip her tongue out.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: A rather quick case between Cecily and Cassa. By the end of the Firefly world, Cecily was already admitting that she might miss Cassa if she died. In Harry Potter, Cecily confirmed their friendship (If slightly one-sided). Playing through a deadly game together will do this.
  • First Law of Resurrection: Rather than the actual role-players wanting their characters to come back, it's written that Lucius makes it so that they're being resurrected so he can avoid punishment by "the higher ups" for letting them all die in Silent Hill.

  • Girly Bruiser: Cecily, especially with her hammer.
  • Glass Cannon: Cecily and Cassa.
  • God in Human Form: Cassa is a living god. Donovan is a vampiric god in his own right.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Donovan may very well be a case of this, having pleaded with different deities during desperate times. However, the deity that answered was a chaos god and it turned him into a psychopathic living god that is now a legend in his own world.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Cecily and Cassa. They are NOT kind to their enemies.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: Alucard and Donovan, thanks to their vampiric abilities.

    H-J

  • Humble Hero: A few of the characters, but reality warper Cassa takes the crown.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Donovan, a very powerful vampire in his own right, is planning to kill reality bender Cassa, the most powerful character in the show/roleplay.
    • He finally achieves this, killing her while she's powerless in Silent Hill, although he admits it wouldn't be as fun as it would've been if she had her powers. However, Cassa's death didn't stick, so he may have to kill her again.
  • Hypocrite: Cecily defends Cassa's honor in Silent Hill, but when Donovan defends her honor against Alucard, she gets angry and attacks him.

  • In Vino Veritas: Cecily undergoes a Personality Inversion when soused.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: We think Cecily suffers from this very much.
  • Intoxication Ensues: Cassa, after taking a hit of Laudanum. She spends the rest of the Firefly world completely high and utterly useless.
  • Ironic Echo: Cecily and Cassa's deaths are similar to one another. Both are killed by the vampiric love interest of the other, die in painful ways, and each were trying to defend the other (Alucard attempting to kill Cassa. Donovan threatening Cecily).
  • I Take Offense to That Last One!: After all the battles he's fought in his own world, even sparring against Cassa, Alucard is insulted that he has to fight a frog in TWEWY.

    • And now: "I'm Cecily North, I'll be your physician this evening." *pulls out hammer* "I understand we'll be setting some bones. As I'll be wrecking your shit."

    N-P

  • Official Couple: Alucard and Cassa.

  • Only Sane Woman: Of the two women in the game, Cassa is the more rational and sane one.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business:

  • Ship Tease:
    • Cecily/Donovan. They've flirted, Cecily has called him good-looking, and Cecily is the only one Donovan shows a somewhat-genuine concern for.
    • Cecily/Cassa: Cecily has been laying it on pretty thick that she sees Cassa as more than just a mongrel.
    • Donovan/Cassa: They've shared a couple of sweet moments together and Cassa has kissed him on the cheek.

  • Shooting Superman: Alucard's thoughts reveals that shooting him in the head wouldn't work to kill him.
  • Shot to the Heart: Donovan gets shot, only it doesn't work.

  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Alucard and Cecily have racked up the highest swear count so far.
  • Shout-Out: The roleplay is CRAWLING with them.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Donovan, in spades. He never raises his voice when fighting Cassa, calmly, but excitedly describing how he'll erase her and how much fun he'll have doing it.

  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation: Cassa’s capable of this, creating a gun and now a war-hammer for Cecily in the space of a few seconds.

  • Stronger Than They Look: Most of the characters, but special mentions go to Cecily and Cassa. Cassa, after being beat to all hell by one of the Golden Goddesses in the Legend of Zelda world (Broken hand, arm, concussion), was able to keep standing and capture Din a bag. Cecily, after being shot with her own bullet, thanks to Lucius, in the Harry Potter world, bandaged herself up, took some local anesthetic, and kept walking. Damsel out of Distress indeed.
  • Stun Gun: Cecily has one in her metal arm.
  • Summoning Ritual: Donovan uses one to summon Morrigan, a deity of witchcraft to fight Cassa. He uses Rowena Ravenclaw's body.
  • Superpower Lottery: Cecily, Tony, and Gill are the Players' three non-superpower members, although they all have weapons are aspects about them that make them heavy hitters. Alucard is a vampire with shadowmancy powers. Donovan is an ages-old vampire with a plethora of related abilities, like blood magic and shapeshifting. Cassa, the winner of the lottery, is a telekinetic reality warper.

  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Alucard.
  • Team Dad: He’s an evil, murdering bastard, but Donovan plays this role well.
  • Team Killer: Donovan has already killed Strada and is currently contracted to kill Cassa.
  • Team Mom: Cassa, due to being one the most compassionate characters in the roleplay. It’s only a matter of time before she goes Mama Bear on someone.
    • She finally embraces this role by comforting Fang in the Silent Hill world.
    • Cecily calls herself and Cassa the group's den mothers in the Silent Hill world. Cecily's maternal instincts are noticeably lacking.
  • Team Normal: Tony, the only normal member of the group.
  • Team Pet: Fang.
  • Tear Jerker: It takes a heart of stone to not cry at Rufina’s death scene. What makes it worse is that her last words are the exact same as the Tenth Doctor’s from Doctor Who.
  • The Corrupter: Donovan tries to be this to Cecily in Silent Hill. Alessa tries to do it to Cassa as well.
  • The Mean Brit: Cecily, who has said only one nice thing the entire roleplay.

  • The Nicknamer: Cecily and Alucard have trouble referring to people by their actual names.
  • The Older Immortal: Based on his powers, Donovan has been a vampire for a lot longer than Alucard has.
  • The Pollyanna: Cassa is good at locking emotions away in order to keep a sunny disposition. Helpful in the game, but one can’t help but wonder what’ll happen when she finally cracks.
  • The Power of Acting: Donovan's skills as an actor is practically a superpower in it's own right. For the majority of the BDRP, he's had the rest of the main cast (especially Cecily and Cassa) wrapped around his finger.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Cecily delivers one to Alucard once she's out of earshot of most of the group, calling him out for attempting to kill Cassa.

  • Trapped in TV Land: The entire plot behind the RP.
  • Trigger Happy: Alucard is only too happy to have a chance to shoot someone.
  • Televised Torture: The game show the characters are playing through is basically this.
  • Training Montage: In TWEWY, Alucard reveals that he and Cassa have sparred in the past. It can only be assumed it was a part of a training montage.
  • Tranquil Fury: Alucard is capable of this.
    • Cassa is even more tranquil. When Donovan tried to erase her, she calmly drew her sword and blew up his arm.
  • Tsundere: Dr. Cecily North is a Tsundere Type A. Cassa Sforza is a Tsundere Type B.
  • Undignified Death: Tony and Gill. Tony gets stabbed with a fiery blade and Gill gets strangled with his own scarf.
  • Unfazed Everyman: After some difficulty in the beginning, Tony has accepted his predicament, and his superpowered teammates, in stride. He did have some issue with his death in Silent Hill, but that's perfectly understandable.

  • Villainous Crush: Donovan on Cecily, as well as Slender’s crush on Catherine Faust.

  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: The Morrigan asks why Donovan doesn't just kill the group since he believes himself capable of doing so.
  • Wild Card: Donovan has no solid allegiance to the rest of the cast, and his cooperation with Lucius Slender had to be bought with a wish ticket. It can be said that Donovan is in it for the chaos.
