The Abyss

Recommended Posts

And so it's said,

So it's told;

 

If you walk 5 hours too far into the forest,

you'll see things you're not meant to see.

 

Things like;

 

1. A rusted metal square, perched atop a pile of bones.

(Human, perhaps.)

On the square is scratched in frantic scrawl;

'HERE . IS . YOUR . GOD'

You don't know what it means.

You don't stay long enough to find out.

 

2. A splintered and dead tree.

it's hollowed out.

Inside you see more bones.

 

 

3. A blade that doesn't appear to be shaped for human hands.

It whispers to you.

It calls you.

It leads you back to the tree.

 

4. A brick wall.

The only sign of life inside the forests depths.

On it, a giant eye is painted in red and gold.

The eye blinks at you.

You're not scared anymore. 

You blink back.

 

5. A crumpled piece of paper.

Theres nothing written on it,

You turn it over in your hands.

Your hands have blood on them now.

 

 

 

A group of travelers find themselves lost in an endless and silent forest.

They have to get out.

Something's coming.

 


 

Quote

 

This role-play is largely up to user interpretation.

Here's a base idea;

 

~5-9 Strangers lose themselves in a mystical forest.

~They see strange and ominous things and eventually come to the conclusion something evil is coming.

~They must escape.

 

 

Rules and other stuff to know;

+ Humanoid characters only, meaning just plain old people. (If you'd like, they can have minor magic abilities or slight cosmetic abnormalities.)

+ Your humanoid character can have a companion! Wether this companion is a regular animal, or a fantastical beast - go wild! Make a two-headed lizard that speaks french if thats what your heart desires!

+ Max 2 characters per person. (Companion creatures count as a character!)

+ Don't kill off others characters/creatures without their permission.

+ I will play as both a narrator and a character, and state certain events that occur in the forest (Eg; Somewhere in the forest, a bird drops from the sky. There's something strange about the bird. It's feathers burn to touch.) The player/s may then decide to have their characters stumble across the bird. I'll write these events in All bold and italics, as well as put them into a quote.

+ Please don't make your characters super over-powered! Be that in physical or mental skill. Be realistic; every human has weaknesses and strengths!

+ Once again, be realistic. Human characters may not have special magical powers or skills; companion creatures may have powers if you'd like.

Hello! I'm Mage and I'm here to approve your roleplay! It's a pretty cool concept and I like it. It's meant to be mysterious, so you don't need to put more into setting.

 

A few questions though: When you mean humanoid, do you allow anything humanshape like anthros or lizard people? Or only humans/elves/animal-ear people/etc.? Do they all come from the same world, or did they somehow all get lost in this forest?

 

Also caught a couple typos and grammar errors for you:

its --> It's

A regular period would do instead of a semicolon at the end.

Somethings coming.

 

Travelers, one L.
Somethings --> Something's

loose --> lose

No comma after "things" (comma splice)

something evils --> something evil is

Period instead of semicolon. Anywhere else you have a semicolon, you can turn into a colon, like so:

 

Name:
Gender:

Age:

(etc.)

(multiple instances)  Forum --> Form. A Forum is a place to post like this board, a form is a sheet you fill in!

 

~~~

 

I think that's it for now!
