I intend the named people it the description to be NPC's controlled by me. players will need to make a name for themselves and a little back story would be nice as it would make it easier to set up the connections and story arc but the back story isn't necessary. I can improvise. also to help emerge players, find a pic to post so we will know what you look like in the world. I would also like to let it be known death is a possibility in this game. Now that doesn't mean I'm gonna kill you for no reason. just that you can't act stupid in this game. your choices have consequences and influence the outcome of your characters. this will be a casual RP no dice or stats more like a community story where i as the GM control the NPC's and move the story along accordingly, and you as the player, use your actions to help develop the story
Nomizawa is a small town in the middle of Japan, hours from anywhere else. The town's secluded location has made it very much like it's own isolated entity. Nomizawa is managed by three family's; the Matsu, Daidoji, and Bayushi. The Matsu Family are in charge of the police force and education of the children of Hinazawa. The head of the Matsu family is Matsu, Yoshino. The Daidoji family are in charge of agriculture, and the arts. The head of the Daidoji Family is Daidoji Ranmaru. Lastly the Bayushi family govern the whole city and the other lesser family's. The Head of the Bayushi Family and the town of Hinazawa is Bayushi Biyakuya. The Sakimu festival is a time to remember the ancient spirit Orochi Ryu-sama the spirit of the Hinazawa river. The festival is ran by the Daidoji family. The main event of the festival is a bon dance done by Ranmaru's daughter, Daidoji, Orihime. Afterward the people of Hinazawa place little floating rice paper lanterns on the river in remembrance of the spirits of those who have died founding the town if Hinazawa. Just recently a new shop has opened it's doors to the people of Hinazawa, The Sakura Tree. A sushi bar ran by Higurashi Saya, the newest resident of Hinazawa. New residents don't happen very often in Hinazawa, due to the head family's desire to keep the town isolated, and cut off from the outside world. Although as of late, Biyakuya-sama has realized the town has become stagnant, and it needs a new breeze in it to give it life.
Our story starts, as most do at the dawn of a new day the construction of the Sakura Tree now complete, and the new resident due to arrive any moment.
the student's are busy at the school house with Asahina-sensei, planning the arrangement of the different booths for the festival. While the kohai(underclassmen) prepare the decorations.
I plan on participating in this as well as Mitsunabe, Akamaru
