It's the best Halloween ever; you have a pillowcase full of candy and there's a full moon out. Houses are still open to trick-or-treat from despite the fact it's midnight, and there's a Halloween fair going on next to the local graveyard. After being tricked into entering a nearby mansion, you're stuck inside - suddenly being thrown into something called the 'fun house.' Inside this fun house, every horror can come to life. Rooms filled with clowns, mirrors, spiders, food, spirits, ghouls, zombies, and much more lurk around every corner, and different versions of the town from past, present, and future Halloweens have been built throughout the rooms. The layout of the fun house changes every midnight. The only ways to escape are to visit all 13 past, present, and future versions of the town during midnight, or find the end of the fun house. You have six months to find your way out.
I'll end up drawing a map of the town and mansion/fun house if we eventually need it.
M'kay, I didn't really feel like explained that much of the RP in the History section, so here's a better explanation:
Wisely is a man that built the mansion and fun house two years ago to experiment with people's reactions. The butlers, maids, and other servants he has are known as Time Tellers - and only his most trusted Time Tellers help confuse the humans trapped inside the fun house.
Inside Wisely's mansion, there is an enormous door that leads into an unbelievable realm that he constructed called the fun house. Once you're trapped inside the fun house, there's no escape. You begin inside the current way the town you were trick-or-treating in looks like, and as you meet different houses you slowly get sucked into new rooms of the fun house. These rooms change every midnight, and the longer you're trapped within a room, the more it 'reads' you and begins to shape into your worst fear. When the rooms change at midnight, they can either revert back to normal or become worse.
Sometimes the exits to rooms disappear, and the only way to move on through the fun house is to battle the fear trapped inside that room. After the fear is defeated in an exit-less room, a new door will appear that will lead you into another room or town, depending on where you're at.
Wisely was a very intelligent man, and was able to predict the future Halloweens the town the RP takes place in. He built these dead-on predictions, and left a clue in each town he built. He also recreated past Halloweens from the town. He's created 6 past, 1 present, and 6 future towns - leaving 13 towns to collect 13 clues from. If you can collect all 13 clues from these towns, you are released from the fun house.
Wisely also created dolls of the humans that lived in the town. They have lifelike abilities and appear to be human, but sometimes these dolls malfunction...
Alice is a spirit that will give you hints on how to defeat fears and get through tough spots in the mansion. She also knows what each clue is, and the layout of the mansion. She enjoys gambling for information, and gives her information in riddles. If you get her riddle correct, she'll return whatever object you were gambling on for the information. Be careful when gambling with Alice.
OOC: Any more information that is needed, please post in the OOC - [link]. I digress, shall I begin?
The sample characters I have in the sign ups - [link] - are the characters I will be using throughout the RPG (which is why I said please no copying them).
IC: Luna was wondering around by herself when she spotted it; the exit. She had been at the Halloween fair for four hours, and her feet were getting tired. "I wish this broom could really fly..." She grumbled to herself, glancing down at her witch costume as she passed through the gates and past the local graveyard.
"Mine can fly," a cute voice called. Luna jumped and looked up from the ground. Just a little past the graveyard now, the fourteen-year-old was at the foot of a deep emerald hill. At the top of the hill, a gloomy mansion lurked with a little girl dressed in blue sitting in the doorway. "Come over and see~!" The girl hollered, jumping to her feet and running inside the mansion. Luna couldn't help but notice the girl looked like she was glowing, but figured it must've been the lighting. Deciding against her better judgement, Luna began to trudge up the hill and towards the mansion doorway.
She smirked. "Mine can fly," Alice said, uncrossing her crossed legs and looking down at the girl dressed as a witch. She was sitting on the cold doorway of Wisely's mansion, doing just as he had commanded: luring a new person in. She had been doing this ever since the first opening of the fun house. The six-year-old's eyes flashed at the memory. "Come over and see~!" She cheered, popping to her feet and running inside the darkness of the mansion. All of the lights had been killed to scare away trick-or-treaters... not that the mansion wasn't scary enough by itself. Alice paused a few feet inside to see if the girl would follow her. Hearing footsteps, Alice quickly ran farther in. Hopefully she'd be free from the fun house this Halloween.
Wisely paced around the wide ballroom of his mansion. "It's Halloween," he mumbled to himself, footsteps echoing. "I wonder what group of people will be lured in this time..." He had instructed a few of his time tellers and the ghost Alice to help draw a small group of people into his mansion. Each year, the people and children were different. Each year, less and less made it out alive.
"The humans have been selected and preparations to bring them in are being made." A time teller told Wisely before quickly leaving the room. Wisely cracked an evil grin at the floor and laughed. That was quick, he thought to himself. I wonder who all has been chosen...
"I hope they're fuu~un," he chuckled to himself before leaving the ballroom to go organize the fun house.
OOC: Right now, our goal (for the humans) is to be lured into Wisely's mansion. Please post before I make my next post, or else you might have to catch up with the others (I'm going to try and put you all into the fun house within my next post). Have fun~
