Welcome to Halloween City!

Post by JerriLeah7 on 17th August 2011, 2:23 am

Welcome to Halloween City!!
If you are interested in "dressing up" on our forum for Halloween, this is the opportunity for changing not only your avatar and signature, but also your username.

Although this town looks perfectly normal (during the day), it is rumored to have mysterious, magical things going on during the season of Halloween! This place has been known to be haunted, to be cursed, and to consist of many things that are not human at all! Simply fill out the Application below and post it here and our Housing Representative will determine if you can live in our City with us!

Note that if your character is not a tourist/newcomer and already lives here, they aren't merely "dressing up," but have had their costume become reality due to living in Halloween City for so long. This side affect of visiting the City is a secret from Newcomers!

If you are a newcomer/tourist, however, you may come dressed up, and your costume will only become reality at night, which your character will not expect or have any prior knowledge of its occurrence!

OC Layout:

Name: What username would you have during your visit to our city?

Age: How old is your character?

Gender: M or F?

Description: What does your character look like? If you are already a resident and have been for a while, what does your character look like at night?

Residence Status:
Would you like to already have lived in our city for a while, or be a newcomer moving in? Note that anyone who is already a resident is fully aware of what occurs at night and takes part in it, as well as they may or may not know staff member characters. If you are a newcomer just moving in, you are aware of only the rumors of this City, but not the reality of it. You are fully human and have never transformed into anything else at this point.

Species/Race: What would you like to "dress up" as for Halloween when you transform at night?

Back Story: How did you character come to find Halloween City and what is his/her past?

Gender: Male

Description: Day: Brown skinned man of a lean, yet strong build with long black hair kept neatly tied back, and gray eyes on the rare occasion you can see them. Wears loose formal attire of black slacks, dress boots, and a button-up shirt with the top three buttons undone, a green jacket that flares at the waist, circular shades and a green fedora. Night: His black hair turns wild and white and his eyes become variegated--though you'll never see them. He wears a hooded cloak, a vest, pants, and boots, all of a green so dark that it's almost black. Etchings all over his arms, legs, head, and body of intricate designs that seem to change at will with an inky smoke that occasionally rises off of them.

Residence Status: Lives in the shadows. Has an office, but there are also rumors of various dance clubs and music halls.

Species/Race: Shadow Walker. The ability to move within the shadows and go wherever shadows lie. To command the shadows, envelop and bring them to life and/or craft them in a myriad of useful ways. Shadows hear and see everything, so be careful what you say and do.

Back Story: Genus came to Halloween City a number of years ago, though nobody's ever sure of how many, called by the shadows. There, he answered the call and has been the unofficial go-to guy for information. Need to find something? He's your man. He may even find the occasional beat down for you if the price is right. He's also the guy you go to if you need something fixed. It's also rumored that in the night music fills the shadows and the shapes of people dancing their life away can be seen out the corner of your eye.

Note to all RPers:

1) ALL ABILITIES AND POWERS work both during the day and night. However, all abilities and powers, with the exception of those that belong to thread runners, will not affect Halloween City as an environment.

If you set a tree on fire during the day, the tree will not burn and the fire will go out over time. At night, however, all abilities may come into play and affect said environment.

2) This role-play is a somewhat short one. Due to this fact, I cannot help those that become inactive. If you don't post, time in HC will move on without you. I must keep the main plot moving.

3) If a thread runner and/or staff member tells you that your character could not do some certain ability or reaction in their thread, you will heed their words and edit your post or be removed from the RP. If you disagree with said thread runner and/or staff member, take it up with me.

4) If you are to be absent for a certain period of time during this RP, I request that you give prior notification and list one or two other RPers to handle your OC for you.

5) It is imperative that you include both the description of your character during the day and night. If you exclude one or the other, I will write one for you.

6) Remember that this RP is NOT in the Forbidden Darklands. Keep to the forum rules and be courteous to all fellow RPers when out of the Darklands, please.

7) Have fun! If you have any questions at all, ask us!

Purely out of curiosity, she decided to look into the rumors so that she could find a place to settle down and thus she ventured into the city.

He began traveling, usually accompanied by female companions, when he turned 18. It was in his travels that he found Halloween City [which was where his travel companions left him, fearing the rumors that surround the town] and made it his home.

Her sudden change and her parents’ rejection of her left her bitter, and her bitterness has only intensified with age. As such, she generally avoids social interaction unless she deems it necessary.

Name: Alexei Stefanos

Age: 19

Gender: M

Description: Alexei is approximately 5'9" and sickly pale with a frail build. His hazel eyes are ringed with dark circles and his shaggy hair is charcoal brown and dusts his collarbones. He is typically seen wearing a jacket or zip up sweater over a plain white wifebeater, jeans and slightly battered white Chucks. At night, he sprouts broad, twisted black wings and his wrists are shackled. His complexion brightens a bit. Photographic evidence!

Residence Status: Resident for nearly a year.

Species/Race: Fallen Angel

Back Story: Alexei was very ill as a child and spent a considerable amount of time in the hospital. His condition has finally stabilized over the past few years and so once he reached the age of majority, he decided to take advantage of this fact. He left his hometown to see the world and ended up hearing the rumours of Halloween City. It intrigued him and so he went. At first, it was alarming but he's adapted to the place surprisingly easily. Due to spending the majority of his childhood isolated, Alexei is a bit shy, reserved, socially awkward and has a hard time making friends. However, the residents of Halloween City all share a unique situation which makes it easy for him to feel close to them.
