**RPG based on Fatal Frame 3: The Tourmented**
History of RP:
In a secluded mountain area, there laid a manor owned by the Kuze family. In this manor, a ritual took place, the Tattoo ritual, which involved the Tattooed Shrine Maiden. It is said that dreams of lost loved ones cause ill to the world, and only the shrine maiden can prevent that ill from coming. People come and give their pain to the shrine maiden by having the ‘engravers’ tattoo her with a snake and holly. She is then sent to the Hanging Prison where she lays with the Holy Mirror. The mirror is her love, which she must shatter (by looking into it), and sever all ties to this world. She is then moved to the Thorn Shrine, where she is nailed into place, by the four pacifiers, should she stir from her eternal sleep. Before the ritual could commence, the priestess witness her lover’s death, causing the ritual to fail and spreading ill upon the manor.
It is said that many have had a dream of entering the manor, the Manor of Sleep, after loosing a loved one. The dream consumes them, and after a few months they turn to ash. It is also said that to follow the dead inside, is to give up your life. Is there a way to survive? How do you escape your worst nightmare?

She represents the South and has her own room filled with red dolls. She usually helps the living who wander the manor.
**NOTE: Only I will be playing ghost roles. You MUST start in the Manor as a MORTAL HUMAN. If youd like, start off normal and then PM me if you wish to die and become a ghost. But you MUST PM me first.**
*There will be other ghosts (needle woman, Kuze family head, etc) however, they wont have a major role in the RPG, therefore they have no character sheets.*
Please refer to the Manor map when role playing. Ive also included some general FF3 info for those who want to read a bit more histroy on the concept of the story.
