The Mystery of Merkan Manor

There was once a man name Charles Merkan. He was born into a wealthy family and inherited the family estate and wealth. He had it all, money, power, love. The estate was built high in the mountains, 20 miles from the nearest town. One night, Charles and his wife and children sat in front of the fire place. It was a stormy night and the electricity had gone, Charles made a fire for light and warmth. The next day when the maid and butler came to do their daily chores, the family was no where to be found. A search party was organized to find them but they were no where near the house or the town. There were no signs of a murder either, they just disapeared. The house fell apart and was unihabited. It became a "ghost house" for children ghost stories and legends. People say that during the night there you hear weird animal noises outside. People constantly disapeer around there and other weird things happen. Now, it is 50 years later and most have forgotten this. Without anyone knowing or hearing about it, invitations to people that are completely differn't have been sent out in the mail. All are inviting these people to a dinner party at Merkan Manor, everyone travels far across the country to the dinner party. Now, they are fighting for their life with every moment they spend at Merkan Manor. Can they survive long enough to figure out the mystery of Merkan Manor?

Ok, in this RP you play as one of the people invited to dinner. At the beggining of the RP everything will seem wrong, then things start happening that are out of place (I control that).

07/13/2007 1:25 PM

Azrican, what are you doing? That post was everything it shouldn't be, you bunnyed someone without asking, it was short, you didn't do anything with your character. What are you doing?

07/13/2007 3:51 PM

Oh it's so nice to make normal length posts... hope it continues.

Ur, it's your mansion technically, right? So I would think it would seem logical that one of your NPCs would answer the door, no?

TBH I [i]really[/i] don't see the point in posting a one-line post. If you're in a rush you're in a rush, just leave it- it's not going to move too quickly to keep up, thing rarely do around here. Which is great for us non-American time-zoners.

07/13/2007 4:25 PM

Name: Evangaline Augusta

Age: 29

Gender: Female

Occupation: A British antiques dealer, specializing in rare jewlrey.

Items of Trinkets: A gold locket worn around her neck, set with an exquisite blood diamond.

Appearance: Evangaline is tall and slender, with narrow hips and broad shoulders. Her hair and eyes are both the color of rich coffee, warm black bubbling to umber around the edges. Her hair is sleek and kept in waves that brush her shoulder blades. She wears a red dress, vintage silk that brushes noislessly against her tan legs. Her heels are black and tall.

Personality: Evangaline is cunning, shrewd and a merciless flirt. She runs her own buisness, so she must keep on top of things. There is something about her manner that seems almost antiquated--an anacronism. Her laugh is deep and full and used often; she has a perniscious temper, making it hard to tell if she is laughing at you or with you. She is cold, she is calculating, she is beautiful and she knows it. Warmth is not one of her strong suits.

Bio: Evangaline grew up with her parents in South Africa; her father was a doctor and her mother taught the children of the village they lived in. Though very close to other English families, the Augustas spent most of their time with the African people, and Evangaline grew up side by side with the young ones of the village. Consequently, to other "civilized" people Evangaline seemed wild and opinionated, but her parents loved her vivacious nature and did nothing to curb her.
When Evangaline was twelve, she and her parents moved from the village they called home and pushed deep into the Congo--there had been a massive outbreak of Milaria and her father felt compelled to help.The Congo frightened Evangaline, she'd never experienced the level of disease or the political turmoil that abounded there. It wasn't long before Evangaline's mother was brought down with Milaria, a case severe enough to kill an englishwoman who had always been strong and resistant. In a last ditch attempt to save his wife, Evangaline's father commandeered a battered jeep and tried to make it through a war-zone to the nearest city. He was shot ten miles from the village, his wife dying later in the night. Evangaline had slept through it all.
At the news of her parents' deaths, Evangaline was snatched from the only home she'd ever known--Africa--by english relatives and swiftly deposited in boarding school in London. For the next four years of her life she was ridiculed and shunned because of where she had come from and the work and deaths of her parents. Evagaline became a fighter and grew cynical and cold. Although she had been accepted at Oxford, Evangaline open her own shop straight out of boarding school dealing in antiques and curiousities. She is known all over London for her rare jewlrey and knowledge of African artifacts. She goes back to South Africa nearly every year, but has yet to go back to the Congo.

07/13/2007 11:56 PM

Name : Jamie Tan

Age : 18

Gender : Male

Occupation : College student and a chef in his dad's chinese restaurant

Items and Trinkets : A buddhist amulet which hung over his neck with a red thread.(His parents got the buddha image amulet from a temple a tied a thread to it and gave it to their son for protection)

Appearance : Jamis is slightly taller than his average asian counterparts and is slim. he has creamy brown skin and is slightly tan like a typical asian. He wears a black t-shirt with his dad's chinese restaurant advertisement on it and a dark blue bell-bottomed jeans.

Personality : He is cheerful, energetic and well mannered. A carefree person and does not like luxury.

Bio : Jamie comes from a poor family. His dad worked himself to the ground to open their family restaurant. The business is poor but enough for his family to pay off his college fees and live a contented life. Since Jamie is the only child in the family, his dad passed all of his chinese culinary skills to Jamie at an early age. He plays basketball once in awhile as a form of exercise. He does represents him college from time to time but the restaurant takes up most of his time.

His parents was shocked when Jamie receiced a letter to the dinner at the manor as its a few states away and they have no friends or family members there. However, Jamie was reluctant to go as he does not like the luxuries the mansion have to offer. His parents persuaded him to go as such a chance does not come often for a poor family. Jamie gives in in the end and decides to go. Well, he might learn some new culinary skills to help his dad's business.

Sapphire, just a note that you should always wait for a GM to accept you before you post in the story. Your accepted.

Sapphire, just a note that you should always wait for a GM to accept you before you post

And also please pay attention to what the other posters have written- three of us have already described it as a [i]mountain[/i], and not at all as,a tiny hill, and my char is driving a battered Beetle- engine's in the rear so it's an older model.

07/14/2007 3:38 PM

Name: Nickolas Arden
Age: 36
Gender: Male
Occupation: A Historian with slightly different views

Items or Trinkets: A personal journal /w pen

Appearance: Tall with a slender build and well toned. He spends much of his time indoors so he may seem a bit pale. His hazel eyes display wisdom and sparkle with curiosity. His hair is an untamable auburn beast. It's a standard cut of medium length. He wears a tan colored suit and black tennis shoes.

Personality: A bit eccentric and not the type to be in social events; he is a loner by nature and enjoys meaningful conversations. (In his case, any kind of knowledge is meaningful)

Bio: His father was a paleontologist and his mother was a chemist. Both were well respected in the halls of academia. When Nikolas, (always fascinated with all forms of history) decided to become a historian it was no surprise. The halls of academia welcomed him warmly, more than happy to have another Arden join their ranks. However, His refusal to conform to the "norm" and his insistence that supernatural powers played a large part in the history of man made him an outcast. When asked to teach a class on Greek Mythology he taught it as fact much to the dismay of his superiors. He has been reprimanded on more than one occasion and was recently given a choice. Shape up or ship out.

07/16/2007 9:37 AM

opps.. my bad... sry sry...

07/16/2007 10:06 AM

Ok, here is a note. Zombie is gone for a while so please refrain from interacting with her character.

07/16/2007 12:59 PM

Thanks for the note

07/16/2007 9:44 PM


so like i should edit my post ??? or just try and go around it ?? lol...

07/17/2007 1:32 AM

NAME: Yelena Kafadarov-Davis

AGE: 23

GENDER: Female

OCCUPATION: currently unemployed

ITEMS/TRINKETS: One handkerchief, white, with flowered embroidery and the initials 'YJ' in the corner.

APPEARANCE: Yelena has an overall washed-out appearance, with limp brown hair hanging loose to her shoulders, watery blue eyes framed by thick wild eyebrows, and pasty, pale skin. She is wearing a black three-quarter length dress, with a green-and blue asian style robe worn loose as a jacket. The large, billowy sleeves make her look a bit lost among the fabric; it is not exactly flattering. Her short stature is brought up a few inches by strappy silver stilettos. She is not a heavy woman, but she does not have much muscle mass, lending her a soft, rounded appearance. Her hands, however, defy this: the fingers are long and slender, with neatly trimmed nails, unpolished and unadorned. She wears no jewelry or makeup.

PERSONALITY: Yelena is quiet, reserved, and somber. She seems too old for twenty-three, but is surprisingly quick to laugh. A lack of self-confidence makes her prone to leaning on others for support, but she tends to trust indiscriminately and unwisely. Her vivacity and dramatic flair lurk under the surface; sometimes all it takes is one ringing piano chord to bring back echoes of the child prodigy she once was.

BIO: Yelena knew almost from the day she was born that she would grow up to be a concert pianist. Every day her mother would tell her this as she tucked her into bed; and before long it became taken for granted. Dutifully she studied the piano, throwing all her effort into practicing out of a desire to please her mother. Precocious as a youngster, Yelena was always friendly and talkative even with grownups. Everyone showered praise on the girl, and her young logic deduced that when she played the piano, people loved her. Her first professional concert was at the tender age of eleven. It did not occur to her until high school that she was not playing out of any desire on her part, but simply because it was what was expected. This realization brought a natural desire to rebel, and so, upon graduating from high school, she ran away with her lifelong piano teacher, Lukás Janovsky. They eloped to California and nothing was heard from Yelena until two years later, when the concerned parents saw an article in the newspaper about Janovsky's arrest for alleged sexual assault against former piano students. A month after the article, an emotionally unstable- and newly divorced- Yelena returned to the east coast to live with her parents. She would not tell them details and, despite their urgings, she refused to touch the piano.

Your accepted.

07/18/2007 1:37 AM

Meant to get a post up yesterday but had a very busy and trying day- bringing pup to vet now but will get one up later.

Please forgive me for this DW, but I can't hold back the teacher in me any longer-

Your accepted.


I tried! I really did!
It's not as if it's important but it's a pet peeve- that and there/they're/their, lol.
Teacher + grammar nazi = uncontrollable pedant ;)

07/18/2007 8:21 AM

nanuk, I've got the same problem. It's gotten to the point where I'm actually keeping running tallies on minor spelling and grammar mistakes in this thread...not to sketch anybody out or anything. Just for my so-called sanity.

So, yeah. What I meant to say was that I might have some major discrepancies in my posts; I'm using a cell phone as a computer for the time being and I can't reference previous posts without losing everything, so if you see something messed up, please tell me. Thanks!

07/18/2007 8:43 AM

Oh wow- that must be [i]really[/i] irritating. I even find texting a pain, lol.
A couple of people at the moment seem to be in the same boat of using a phone- but you seem to be doing fine so far!

It's gotten to the point where I'm actually keeping running tallies on minor spelling and grammar mistakes in this thread.

I don't think even I go that far, lol.

07/24/2007 7:15 PM

So, should Nanuk, since your the only one left basically, should i just bunny the other people? The undeniable fact that they have not been seen for a while provides me with a good thing, if they are gone then they provide me with people to kill off ;).

07/24/2007 7:23 PM

I'm still here! I just figured I would wait a while so other people could post, but I am still here. : )

07/24/2007 8:47 PM

I'm here. I'll have a post up later to night. Sorry about the delay. I've been wrapped up in a project of mine.

07/25/2007 7:27 AM

I guess they haven't all left, lol.

Zombie said to bunny Evangeline if needed, so I suppose you could include her reply to Merkan in the next post.

And then if others don't come back by the time we set off you can get to killing!

07/26/2007 7:43 AM

Sappire frost is the only one who has not shown for a while, what oh what to do. I think ill just have him tag along silently and if sappire doesn't show for awhile, then *silence* [i] My cruel sense of executions will be satisfied [/i] lol

07/29/2007 7:55 PM


Man, it was a long two weeks. I've got some pent-up twitches, so there be some verbal abuse from Evangaline, but remember I love you all and that I ran out of medication four days ago :]

Ah, it's good to be back.

07/30/2007 2:19 AM

Hope you and Jay (*sobs*) had a fab time.

Now let's get writing...

07/30/2007 9:03 AM

YAY, Posting.....

08/02/2007 9:14 PM

Hmm...murder/mystery. Well DW, you say I should get out of SW more often. Got room for one more at dinner?

NAME: Shawn Roberts

AGE: 25


OCCUPATION: Accountant

ITEMS OR TRINKETS: A Hamilton chronograph (aviator's wristwatch) that was part of his inheritance from his grandfather, a WWII US Army Air Corps pilot.

APPEARANCE: Standing only 5'8 and of slight build, Shawn has light brown hair and hazel eyes. He's wearing black cargo khakis, a dark blue polo shirt, black leather jacket, black sneakers, and a dark blue baseball hat.

PERSONALITY: Shawn doesn't have the reserved meekness stereotypical of accountants. While usually quiet, he will initiate conversation, and has no problem making jokes, even if at his own expense. He will listen to others, but has and expresses his own opinions as well.

BIO: Orphaned at a young age when his parents died in a car accident, Shawn went to live with his only other living relative, his grandfather. A quiet loner who spent most of his time reading books, it was his grandfather who encouraged him to be more outgoing. Though smart, it took Shawn five years to graduate college, his first freshman year showing that he learned his grandfather's lessons a little too well. He finally graduated with honors and got hired into a large corporation with some help from a friend of his grandfather, who happened to sit on the board. Shawn learned to keep his professional life seperate from his personal life, living by a principle he calls "accountant by day, Bacardi by night." He had no problems with this until his grandfather recently passed away, leaving him no other family and in a state of depression and self-imposed exile. When the invitation came in the mail, his grandfather's friend encouraged him to go because "your grandfather would want you to meet new people" and allowed him indefinite leave from work for "medical purposes".

I think venturing out of SW corner bodes well for your future mental health.

08/03/2007 7:11 AM

I am fairly new to this type of roleplaying; would making someone's character make an insignificant movement like I just did constitute bunnying?

wearing black cargo khakis, a dark blue polo shirt...

*gasp* a walking bruise! :o

08/03/2007 8:02 AM

Depends on how sensative the owners of the char. are.

Stoic my boy, an accountant you say, *mutters* yes, should be easy enough to kill, yes. WELCOME ABOARD!!! ;)

08/03/2007 4:53 PM

Lol, what can I say, he prefers dark shades. And if I wanna get technical, I could say he's still mourning. Have grandfather die...oh, let's say...a couple weeks ago, and he got the invite day after burial? *shrugs* I'll just post now...

08/05/2007 11:30 AM

If I didn't love you two, I'd kill ya's for that...lmao.

You'd try, but end up unconscious due to a poison capsule, you TRAITOR.

*feels all warm from the love*

08/07/2007 9:59 PM

08/07/2007 10:20 PM

08/08/2007 12:42 PM

Bye Sapphire, hope to see you soon. :) Do note, that your character WILL be killed off ;).

08/08/2007 2:59 PM

Sorry that was so short, but don't know whether Charles wants to announce anything else, or whether we're all supposed to chat or whatever.

Also, what's on the menu ;)

08/08/2007 3:04 PM

Also, what's on the menu ;)

NOT, poisoned food ;)

08/08/2007 4:06 PM

Was going to make a joke about the food being poisoned but figured, firstly, Evangeline wouldn't be impressed, lol, and secondly if we were to be bumped off it wouldn't be so quickly- else the front door would have opened with a shotgun ;)

08/08/2007 8:14 PM

I was thinking more of a guillotine blade that would slice you in half as you walked through.

08/09/2007 9:05 AM

Stop giving him ideas!

Almost makes me curious about what static electricity would do though...

Fillings are a pain enough without more electricity, thanks. lol

08/09/2007 6:34 PM

Stop giving him ideas!

Lol...just cause YOUR characters always end up having to come save/redeem MINE whenever I do...

08/10/2007 6:17 PM

Guiotine, Shotgun, yes yes *scribbles something down on a piece of paper*

*looks at nanuk and stoic* WHAT, OH WHAT! *puts paper in pocket*


I love having all of your characters life in my hands, its absolutly wonderful. *evil smile*

What would your reaction be if after dinner the butler comes up to you and says "Mr. Lector would like to know if you enjoyed your meal?"


Now, for plot things, please do not advance the story to far, I want every detail to be recorded. After dinner, we will go drink coffee and wine in the library and have warm conversation. Remember, you need to be lowering your guard, everything seems normal but not really. Since your human, you try to justify the un-normalness and then something bad happens.

Woops, sorry, that was part of my master plan, lol. Dont want to reveal that to the victims, i uh mean, guests...............

08/10/2007 6:41 PM

Will comprehend dinner and conversation over my share of a case of beer and food. I'll try to post tomorrow.

08/10/2007 6:54 PM

Hey guys, sorry for slacking lately, we've been having eight hour marching band rehersals and i'm totally crashing. I'll try to post more, don't kill Evangaline yet :p

08/11/2007 8:42 AM


Lol, love it.

08/11/2007 10:03 AM

Stoic has all taught us a valuable lesson. Curiosity killed the Cat.

*pulls out master plan, mumbles something, then puts it away*

08/11/2007 7:56 PM

Dang it, you use the wrong spoon I tell you. ETIQUETTE people, ETIQUETTE.

Evangaline just has to be snooty, it's in her dna :p

08/12/2007 3:57 AM

Poor Yelena! Of all the people she could've picked to talk to... I don't see this ending well, lol.

08/12/2007 7:05 AM


Etiquette? From a guy who cares less about it? Lol...

Hey, Shawn made an attempt to remember. He just decided he'd save the staff a few dishes to do.

Yeah...that's it...

I'll post later...gotta go help shingle a roof right now. Don't y'all just [i]love[/i] helping relations?

08/12/2007 8:21 AM

Bah, that was massivly short, sorry guys I gotta get to handbell practice!
Longer Post Later :]

08/12/2007 1:10 PM


I was expecting poor Yelena to get a lecture on what makes bisque different from just 'soup' lol.

Handbell practice, eh? Cool.

08/12/2007 7:05 PM

Longer post later...sounds good. Figure I just gave Evangaline something to talk about. Or make snide side comments. Either way, good for conversation.

08/13/2007 2:03 AM

Yeah, I also fear for Yelena's remaining mental confidence...lol, although we will see how it goes.

In the vein of excuses for short posts, I'm being forced to go bowling at Mt. Fuji, of all places, but I will try and post more when I get back, if applicable.

08/13/2007 2:29 AM

go bowling at Mt. Fuji

... in Japan?

That's a long way to go for a game...

08/13/2007 5:22 AM

But we should be ready for her to do a long post by then.

Say hello to Naomi Yoshiko if she's still working the cash register at Fuji.

08/13/2007 8:41 AM


Have you changed the spelling or gotten confused, lol.

08/13/2007 8:41 AM


Have you changed the spelling or gotten confused, lol.

08/13/2007 9:41 AM

Aha- now there's the Evangeline we know and love!

I knew it'd be veal. It [i]had[/i] to be veal to complete my food nightmare.
Cruelty followed by cruelty... lol

08/13/2007 10:08 AM

Merkan, Merkin, whatever...... *spins around in a circle* LALALALALALAL, HEHHEEHHE :D

08/13/2007 11:50 AM

The food torture just keeps comin' Nanuk :p

08/14/2007 10:42 PM

Hey guys I'm gonna have to pull out of this. Some things of a personal nature have come up. I'm just glad it happened before I really did anything here. I wish the RP well and have fun offing Nick.

08/15/2007 5:02 AM

Best of luck.

And don't worry...we'll make sure he gets a gruesome death worthy of...well, worthy of something, lol.

08/15/2007 5:42 AM

I'm sorry all my posts are so short, please forgive me, my only internet access is my cell phone and I'm doing my best : (

08/15/2007 6:29 AM

You're doing fine, pet- especially considering the somewhat intimidating presence poor Yelena is faced with ;)

Some things of a personal nature have come up

Good luck.

Funnily enough I was just thinking last night how to get your char more involved in the chat. Problem solved, I guess ;)

08/15/2007 4:14 PM

Ok, Concerning the fact that Im VERY busy at the moment, and my post in the check in and out forum. This is how the RP will move forward whilst I am unavalable, Nanuk is in charge ;) If I put Stoic in charge we would all die, well, we probobly will all die anyway so........... WAIT, WE WOULD DIE UNDER DIFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES!!! Anyway, Nanuk is in charge, just go through dinner. You don't have to bother with John, as for Merkan, have him reply charmingly and witty, no anger in his voice.

After dinner, ajourn to the library and wait for further instruction. :D

08/15/2007 4:26 PM

Er, you're supposed to [i]ask[/i] people if they want to be in charge!

My first act as ruler is to demand that all calf carcass be removed from the table immediately!

oh the power...

08/15/2007 6:18 PM

oh the power...

Nope...it won't corrupt you at all...I'll be hiding in the wine cellar until DW gets back, lol.

And don't worry...infamous? delirious? ID? Lol, no worries, your posts are fine. Shawn will give you $20 to knock off Evangaline if the lights go out though. Maybe a small push down some stairs?

Hey, you know we're gonna make it upstairs sooner or later, esp with the whole "the upstairs is off limits" line. Good thing Shawn wasn't there for that part. Hell, he doesn't even know the host's name yet. The bad part of being late...:( Lol

Ill handle the upstairs, ignore that for now.

08/30/2007 7:09 PM

So, is the final roster in this?

And Infamously Delirious (ID?)

I can kill saphires and Dalmar's characters.... I think I know what I can do next, Sorry dinner took so long, it will be ending soon.

08/30/2007 8:03 PM

Don't forget the maid and butler...staff always make good bodies to kill off.

09/02/2007 8:04 AM

Gah, sorry I've been MIA lately, school's started again and it's eating my brain. My Government teacher needs to DIE she is the stupidest woman on the PLANET.
Anyway, I should be able to post today.

09/02/2007 5:25 PM

No worries. Hey, better than my former gov't teacher, an old guy who was completely stuck in his ways and should've retired at least 10 years before he finally did. Oh well...

09/06/2007 6:14 AM

Mmkay, here's the deal.

In my ESL (snigger) classes I occasionally get free use of the computer, but unfortunately it's only once or twice a week. Therefore...

I will spend every precious moment of technological contact on this thread. Try to, at least. But I might be a little slow.

09/11/2007 4:57 PM

Ok, Im trying to figure out how to post here. I know what i want to do, just having a little writers block. Just letting you know so you don't wonder if this is dead.

09/13/2007 10:02 PM

Oh good. I was really worried that it was dying. This is the only thread I am in so I wasn't really sure what to do with my life! But uh, ok. That's good to know.

09/17/2007 5:02 PM

It has occured to me that this should be in the horror/paranormal section instead of here. lol

Second, this is a question to all RPers, what would you guys prefer, the plot to be more paranormal like (magic, mystic things, werewolves...) or more realistic (guns, knives, agatha christi for instance)?

09/22/2007 6:06 AM

Ok, that took a while to post/figure out. What do you guys think?

09/23/2007 8:19 AM

Oooh, love it, visions of Sherlock Holmes... (have you ever read the one where the lady gets a pair of human ears for chirstmas? one of my personal favs :p )
I don't know about paranoral, maybe a twist that [i] could [/i] be paranormal, but we're not really sure?

09/23/2007 8:30 AM

I have been reading a bunch of Edgar Allen Poe short stories prior to this, lol.

09/27/2007 6:50 PM

Just a quick note to everyone, its gonna get a lot worse, lol. *evil grin*

Stoic says we should call the police, excellent suggestion! When everyone responds to the death scene I will call the police.

(Note sarcasm)



Hehe, for those who are reading this, your cheaters. :D I oughta kill the lot of you. Maybe I will disconnect your brain from the rest of your body......... :D

Hehe, for those who are reading this, your cheaters. :D I oughta kill the lot of you. Maybe I will disconnect your brain from the rest of your body......... :D

HA! That would mean you'd have to find my brain first, and I believe that left when my sanity did!

If, on the off chance you do locate said brain and sanity, could you please have them come home soon, it's after dark.

09/28/2007 5:11 AM

Gar, knew there was something I meant to post in yesterday. Apologias, amigos!

Won't be back till midnight Sunday, so will be Monday evening at the earliest I can post- if you want to go ahead just bring Nina wherever you want her.

10/08/2007 4:57 PM

Has anyone seen Zombie or Infamously? They really need to post here, I don't think I have the heart to bunny them along without them saying something, this is a pivitol moment in the plot.

10/18/2007 1:09 PM

I think I should just go on without them....

10/23/2007 7:34 PM

Sorry, sorry, sorry! I posted, finally. Sorry...sorry.

10/23/2007 7:57 PM

Now, I know I'm just a little bit late (ha), but is it to late to join as a guest arriving late?

10/23/2007 9:07 PM

Sorry, sorry, sorry! I posted, finally. Sorry...sorry.

SHE LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!! *picks ID up in a bear hug, sets her down when he realizes she can't breath* oops....

Oh, by the way, welcome back. :D

Now, I know I'm just a little bit late (ha), but is it to late to join as a guest arriving late?

Up to DW, but you should be fine...

10/24/2007 12:16 PM

Now, I know I'm just a little bit late (ha), but is it to late to join as a guest arriving late?

That would be alright, post a character sheet and we will review it.

Welcome back ID! :)

NAME: Daniel Forester

AGE: 24


OCCUPATION: Musician (Played at bars and anywhere else he was paid to.)

ITEMS OR TRINKETS: A Guitar case containing his acoustic guitar, about 50 picks which he constantly loses, and a small notebook.

APPEARANCE: Daniel is about 5'11, has dirty blond hair, and hazel eyes. He wears faded blue jeans, and a black-and-crimson-striped button-up shirt over a gray T-shirt.

PERSONALITY: Very lazy and laid back most of the time. He's slow to anything except play the guitar, but eventually he gets everything done. Almost always in a good mood.

BIO: Daniel loved his guitar and enjoyed his career as a musician, even if he wasn't famous and making enough money to own an actual house. But luckily, he liked the apartment he lived in and the lack of strict regulations and rules it had.

After getting his invitation, he simply set it aside, unwilling to go buy the supplies he would need to make the trip to the mansion. He left the house with his guitar case and a small suitcase with clothes, but had to make constant stops along the way to get the supplies he forgot, or just hadn't bought in the first place.

[Is this OK?]

Lmao, stoic. That is all. :D
