20th Annual Midnight County Fair
chris'coding
The town of Midnight has always been a bit of an odd place. One that attracts the strangest of people, and an oppressive veil of secrecy that covers every move. Tucked away in the quietest corner of Colorado, there aren't many strangers who stumble across it. Decently sized enough to not feel like you're holding hands with your neighbor, but still small enough to know everyone and their kids. Small enough to know all the... odd rules. Rules that even the most daring and rebellious kids wouldn't break. Whether or not they believed the urban legends was a different story.

The Midnight County Fair is an event that is always looked forward to by the locals. Every summer the fair comes to town, setting up for two weeks and providing plenty of cheer and fun to teens who may be bored my their otherwise monotonous lives. A little old-fashioned and rundown, the fair has it's charms but also a strange aesthetic. The one place in town with no rules, it's no surprise that the youth are drawn to it. Well... one rule. A strict curfew at midnight. One that people have joked about breaking but none have. At least not until this summer.

Cameron Bayley, a crucial member in your close-knit group of 7 friends. He's always been quite the dare devil. On the first day of the last week, you all dare him to stay behind after curfew. No one actually expected him to do it but it's been a full week sense you've seen him. So on the last day of the fair your little band of friends stays after midnight. But are you guys paranoid or did that ride just start on its own? You swear that animatronic wasn't looking at you before. And you're having a nagging feeling that someone, or something, is watching your every move.

Rules
*****************************************************
questions: definitely feel free to ask me any questions you may have about the plot. i am probably the least intimidating person on the planet and i will try my best to answer any and every question you may have

cast size: for purposes of organization (and the fact that this is my first attempt at running a group rp) i will keep the cast very small. Only looking for 5 other player, may be flexible and accept more but this is where i want to stay

characters: i was going to, but i decided against creating very basic character archetypes to give y'all the most freedom. that being said, please be aware of the personalities of other members when you apply. i don't want 6 badass, scared of nothing characters. also this is meant to be a fairly close-knit group of friends so perhaps your loner character wouldn't fit too well here (of course, feel free to try it. i'll read all the characters thoroughly)

writing: i intend for this to be a bit of an atmospheric horror roleplay so all members should be able to contribute to the atmosphere. this means i am looking for writers on the detailed side as opposed to the casual side
the length: because of the above i will be expecting a minimum of 2 paragraphs (or 250 words). more is definitely welcome

the activity: unsure of this as of right now. i plan to run this roleplay using a chapter format where each player will be required to post at least once per chapter. the length of each chapter will be discussed ooc once a group is picked, but with the detail requirement in mind each chapter will last at least one week (so one reply per week minimum but more is welcome... just don't spam and keep 2 or 3 replies in between your last)

spots: as there are a small number of spots I will not make this first come first serve. don't be discouraged if there are people who have applied before you. also as mentioned, i am willing to drum up one or two more spots if characters are just that compelling

god modding: feel free to add to the roleplay's atmosphere. feel free to have your character react to something in the environment. do not control anyone else's character. do not have things in the environment attack other people's characters

lastly: obviously, follow all RPN rules. and please enjoy. this is my first baby. can't have people not having fun!

I haven't done a realistic/modern RP on here for about five years, but this seems like an interesting opportunity to try something new! :D
