In the absence of the current rp gms, Devour and Veir, along with consent from Veir and a few other rpers, I am going to be hosting a new rp for people who are interested to join.
You’re sitting in a theater chair, you can only see those to your right and left through your peripheral vision, but what draws your attention is the dark stage in front of you. With a yank the curtains snap open and you’re blinded by a white flood light, as your eyes adjust you could see the silhouette of a man standing jauntily. His right hand on his hip with his left hand hanging down, his legs slightly apart with his right leg bent slightly while the other is stretched in a diagonal angle. You can’t see much detail because of the light that surrounds him but you can see that his clothes are white while he wears on his head a top hat. The light dims and more turn on, evening out the brightness. So now you could get a good look at the man. He wears a clean, crisp, white suit with a crimson tie and he wore a porcelain, shield-shaped mask, a happy expression painted on. The eyes were shallow upside down U’s and it had a big gaping smile, you can only see black behind the expression. “Welcome everyone,” he laughed and spun, ending with a curt bow. “My name is Abra and I have recruited you all to amuse me.”
A map slid down behind him and he waved his hand over it all, “This is the Wonderful World of Me. Now you guys will start somewhere and then make your way around,” he waved his hand once again. “Then make your way through it all to end up here.” He once again waved vaguely. “That’s how you win, by making it through the map, easy no?” The map was as vague as his instructions, nothing more than a circle with phrases written in tiny characters all about. If you could zoom in, you could read them stating, “If you can read this, you’re looking too close and not paying enough attention to Abra.”
Now you must be wondering, what’ll you be going through? Who’ll you have to fight? And I respond with this. Why should I tell?” He chuckled, and pretended to clean dust from beneath his fingernails, an action impossible thanks to the white gloves he wore. “You guys will fight beings of my choosing, they’ll be from anywhere and everywhere, so try to survive. Now look to your left and to your right, be cordial and be sure to wave and greet each other kindly.” He stated nonchalantly, knowing his captives were glued where they sat and could only stare at him. “These are your teammates, be sure to work together if you want to even try to win this.”
He scratched his head and looked from his audience back at the map, “You guys don’t need this anymore right?” He turned back and flames enwreathed the map, burning it to ash and filling the stage with black smog. “Now that you know everything let me ask you a question, who are you?” A bright white light pierced through and a train flew over their heads with Abra at the helm, “First stop! Candyland!” He announced.
You live in a world where there is diversity. From human, to maybe not so human, from cybertech to magic, just imagine the possibilities. Now you create what you want, just nothing too strong or useless or you'll ruin Abra's game, and he gets angry when you try to ruin his fun. You don't want to see him angry.
Now answer Abra’s question, WHO R U? Picture references are okay if you want to add them.
Spoiler for Character Application:
Now you guys will be deposited within a train station. It’s about 40 feet across, 30 feet wide, and in the middle sits a ticket booth that’s the size of a van. There are benches scattered around so choose your place to spawn. The scenery is strange to say the least, it seemed to be two dimensions that were joined together, with the station and train tracks that stretched from one horizon to the other being the stitches. One half there is a desert, the sky had no clouds and a hot sun blasted down on the hard, cracked, sandy plains. All there could be seen on the cracked, dry land is heat mirages and swirls of sand, neither a cactus nor tumbleweed to be seen.
The other half is truly a Candyland forest. The sky is a baby blue with candy floss white clouds, the sun practically dancing in the sky. The ground is covered in grass that looked to be made of licorice. The trees were a mixture of pines and oak. The oak leaves were made of glass-like sugar and the trunks were peppermint sticks. The pine trees have trunks made of dark chocolate filled with caramel sap, the needles are white chocolate shavings and the pinecones are made of milk chocolate. As you admire the scenery you get attracted to the sound of snapping branches and turn your head to see Abra snapping twigs off the pine trees and when he turned to look at you, he popped a pine cone into his mouth. He seemed to not be impaired by chewing as he gulped down more and more chocolate, “Welcome to Candyland. Now that we’re here let me explain how to reach me.” He finished and walked away, soon his muffled steps turned into clips and clops as he stepped off the forest ground and onto a path that seemed to be made of jolly ranchers. “You simply follow this road to me. Now you have to follow this road, if you step off the path and get lost, then well…” He laughs and began walking down the path.
PM your character sheet. Limit will be… I don’t know. I’ll let people PM me characters for a week, then I’ll choose. I’ll post on this thread who are accepted, so watch for edits, and then once everyone is ready, we’ll begin with people posting their first move.
