First three people to post a comment are the adventuring party. I do all rules. World is like in the “soulsborne” games, you can have some cheap combat powers but nothing amazing. Should have some kind of weird signature weapon, like giant scissors or a sharp hat. When you get bored of the game (or just want to make room for a player to replace you) let me know and your character will get an exotic death or reward commensurate with how long you lasted in the game.
Out of character or metagame comments in parentheses. No more than one comment per person between comments by me, altho I’ll let you have a parenthetical out of character one if you really feel it necessary. I might be willing to edit a mistake in a comment for you if you like. I’m favoring past tense but I’ll probably slip up and I know most people prefer to RP in present tense, so whatever on that.
IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT
The spring felt like summer already, but what were seasons anymore? The moon was somehow always visible despite the cosmically gigantic black clouds boiling around it, the air alternating bitter little lashes of rain and muggy swells of humid vapors. Thunder rolled and lighting cracked like snake tongues or vague sheets of ghost-like energy. As you awakened to the world, you hated it.
Something drew you from the place where you were. Something shivered your timbers like the veriest of pirates. You awakened in some kind of mild bondage from which you can escape – wound over with vines or wires, half buried in dry mud, etc. You were wearing interesting and minutely detailed garments. You had a name and looked cool.
(Describe all these things, and your escape, and how you feel about the drawing and the shivering upon your soule. Go.)
EDIT: STILL ROOM FOR ONE MORE.
