We've got rules and maps and guns in our backs
But we still can't just behave ourselves
Even if to save our own lives
So says I,

We Are a Brutal Kind


Fate isn't what we're up against there's no design your flaws are fine




You wake to the silhouette of pine trees against stars. Apparently you're in a dense forest bordered only by mist as far as the eye can see. What is this place? How did you get here? These are questions to which you have no answers. But before that choking sensation of panic sets in you realize that you are not alone. People of all walks of life are waking up around you. All of them strangers...at least strangers as far as you can tell because there's not a single fact about yourself that you can recall. Not your name, your favorite ice cream, your dreams, or the person you love. All of it... gone. The only clue is an old Tarot card you discover in your pocket. On the front is a symbol you vaguely recognize through the brain roots of the popular zeitgeist as belonging to the Major Arcana. Every one slightly different. But on the other side, typed exactly the same, is a simple message:

You have been brought here because you have sinned
Now teach me the meaning of SACRIFICE
This world is ruled by [ Three Gods ] and in exactly 24 hours three of you will become their Bride. In other words... it's a [ human sacrifice ]. Who will it be? Ordinarily the Divine decide such fates. But punishment has to be the most cruel, so this time it's in the hands of the Accused. One of the people standing with you has been chosen as the Elect- someone whose destiny it is to die in the ritual. But lucky them, they get to pick two others to share their [ wedding day ]. However worrying about that shouldn't be your priority. Time is running out, and before the Ceremony approaches you had better figure out who you are, why you are here, and how to escape the forest. In which you are not alone. There are signs of other inhabitants, both human and...not so human. In fact there seems to be a variety of judges waiting in the trees to enact a special [execution]. The cards are certainly stacked against you. Let's see who can make it past tomorrow...

Notes

Heyo! I've wanted to make a Quest RP based on this idea for the longest time, but I decided to reformat it to a Group RP instead. Hope it sounds interesting!
✡ Participants must be okay with character death! However it may or may not be permanent ;>
✡ This RP will include an unconventional CS and a lot of information will be communicated through PM, so be able to keep a [ secret ]
✡ We're going casual so just be able to write at least a paragraph that carries some movement to it once a week
✡ Each player will be able to make up to 2 characters, with a max number of 22 (based on the Major Arcana). The minimum we need to start is 4. There will be a reserve system explained once the RP goes up
✡ I was heavily inspired by Japanese folklore but your character does not have to be Japanese nor do you need any prior knowledge to enjoy


So, ready to enter the [ forest ] ?


Dissolve magically, absurdly
They'll end, leave
Dissipate coldly
And strangely return


We've got rules and maps and guns in our backs
But we still can't just behave ourselves
Even if to save our own lives
So says I,


We Are a Brutal Kind

Not that I'm a creep or anything but I see this must be the horror rp you were talking about!

So minimal and quite eerie. I like it, especially that background. And is that a yokai tag I see? You got me even more hooked. I love yokai rps. Although is there someplace I should be able to click to read more of what it is about or is that part of the idea? Because if it is then you sir/madam are truly encompassing the essence of mystery.

Haha oh yeah, thanks for replying to my query thread! I've been busy so I almost forgot about it but it was helpful. ^ ^;

If you're talking about not being able to see the text, the center image is actually a scroll box. Thought people were used to explorative bbc shenanigans to find it but it's not really clear eheh. Guess I'll just call that the first puzzle lol.

OH! See I had clicked the image and it just expanded it. I should've checked to see if it scrolled down. Dummy me. And hmmmm your username...I think we've rped before.

Hmm Very interested
Unconventional CS? Major Arcana?

I'm intrigued.
Thank you! I'm actually just finishing up the rest of the threads right now so I can tag you when they're posted. ;>

Haha, fair mistake. If the design doesn't lead the user through it then it's not a very good design, so don't feel dumb. ;p

It's possible! I'm not very good with names, unfortunately, but I've had lots of good experiences on this site. :3

I did a little digging, and also because I was reminiscing about it the other day, does "Portals to the Afterlife" ring any bells? (I changed my username a month ago from LifeNovel.)

Ah, yes! That was a great RP, really sad it died off so soon. Haha I'm glad you remembered me, yes. I don't recall which character you played but I do remember that username. :>

LifeNovel? Good to see you again! Looks like it's a real small world, since I have the distinct feeling of having written this before. (This is BlueInPassing from White's Codebreakers lolol)

Yes, yes~
(I played Brie the crazy cook/surgeon of the ship with the cat-gun.)

Speaking of which, *kicks* @The One Called X, think you might be interested in this? If you have the time that is my tuna liege.

Ah, yes! Of course I remember Brie, after all those cat gun memes lolol.
Oof GG Portals, thou shalt be missed

It's really cool you're interested in my RP (well, if you're still interested after actually reading haha). Yeah, it would be great to RP together again. ^ ^

Alright, everyone's been very kind to show their interest but even though we still have some slots available I'm going to have to cut it off for now to leave room for those who already posted and/or in case current players want a second character later on.

If people do not finish their reservations in time or drop the RP I'll open it back up.

Thanks again!
