Murder Mystery I (OOC)

Postby Murder Mystery RP » Wed Jul 07, 2021 10:39 pm

Remember the RP that Owlograd started a few months ago? This is it now. (but by Drew Durrnil this time!) The premise is just like Owlograd's version, where a murder takes place in a small town and a group of suspects are chosen to find them.

Rules:
  1. An assassin shall be randomly chosen among the participants in this RP. They will be given the password to this account, which would change every round. (Note: There might be twists, and any of these rules may change)
  2. I shall post clues about the assassin intermittently, while still letting the RP go on as usual.
  3. The RP will end either when:
    1. The assassin is killed;
    2. The assassin's identity is discovered; or
    3. The assassin gains a large enough advantage over the innocents that the assassin is declared the winner.
  4. The assassin shall only post as the assassin on this account. The assassin shall use their main account to act as an innocent.
  5. This RP must follow site rules (e.g. No ERP, PG-13, Trolling, or other rules violations).
  6. A player must fill out a full application form (listed below) and be accepted to enter this RP.
  7. Players shall get kicked out of the RP for inactivity. If an assassin gets kicked out of the RP, an active player will be chosen as the new assassin.
  8. The assassin must not reveal their identity or share the password to this account.
  9. Only IC posts shall be posted onto the IC thread. The OOC thread exists for a reason.
    1. Mods will not be considered as characters, and shall be excepted from the above rule when acting in an official capacity.
  10. Only one account (excluding this account) per player shall be used in this RP.
  11. This is an English-language RP. No posts in another language are allowed.
  12. No godmodding.

Drew, you did it, you finally brought back Murder Mystery! I'm definitely coming back for this one.

Application Form:
Nation Name: Eshialand
Character Name: Darren Westwood
Character Description: A 26-year-old grocery store clerk, Darren lives most of his life unnoticed, and he doesn't mind that. He's rather introverted, but not obnoxiously or suspiciously so. Once you get talking to him, he's actually a pretty nice guy, and he's known for making store-goers days just a little bit brighter. His clothing includes a simple purple shirt, a pair of blue jeans, and a black wollen hat.
Character Backstory: Darren never wanted to live in this town. He used to live in the big city as a young boy, and his life was great there. That was, until his father accepted a transfer at his job, forcing a then 11-year-old Darren to move many miles away right along with him, to the sleepy town where our story is set.

When Darren arrived in the town, something about him changed. He grew more distant, preferring to enjoy the comfort of his own imagination more than what little the town had to offer. He accepted his current job at the grocery store when he was 18, in a bid to make enough money to leave the town behind... but that was 8 years ago now, and here he still is, trying to make the best out of what his life has given him.
Warden of The Order of the Grey Wardens since February 10th, 2021.
I allegedly did well in these tournaments:
1st: Baptism of Fire 75, World Junior Hockey Championship 17
2nd: World Cup of Masters 4
3rd: Elephant Chess Cup 1
4th:
Quarterfinalist: Jenna Raven Cup 1, Quidditch World Cup 11
...I'll always be your friend!

Just one minor question, are disabled characters allowed too? I mean if such a character is chosen as the assassin there are many ways to kill someone by using a wheelchair as a weapon…

Because this had caused problems earlier I have to specify that I will not bring politics into the RP. Just FYI.

UCA- and SM- opposed. Semi-isolationist, pro-autarky but not against some international cooperation. People and the regime willing and ready to annihilate themselves and any aggressor. Counter force first strike nuclear policy. Ruled by very anti-democratic tomboy Queen Alexandria, with her head of government- First Minister Teilga and funny war crimes Fieldmarshall Von Ludendorff-II. Anti democratic but will not try to spread fascist ideas because why

Bob wears a top hat and a nice vintage striped suit with a monocle on top, he also just wears a ski mask for some reason. Bob doesn’t like to talk with strangers which makes him an outcast amongst his peers.

Once 32 he had earned enough money from generous people and robbing said generous people to get a carriage and a horse and ride the long way. It took him a few years and a few towns he stumbled upon to finally find the town, and he actually decided to settle down and get some things done and all that jazz, a now 38 year old Bob just sits on his porch and drinks his morning coffee with his decade old suit, top hat, And monocle.

Disabled characters are allowed, but you cannot use a wheelchair or other device meant to overcome a disability to kill someone or get an unfair advantage over other players.

What’s the point of creating a separate nation just to do this thread, Drew?
I cannot take any music later than 1980, with a few exceptions.

I’m at the right end of the center-left. You could potentially call me a neocon, because when I bite, I bite down hard.

Katherina is a 22-year old 167 cm tall woman working part-time at a bakery and part-time at a bar to pay her late father's debts. Even though she is usually pretty cheerful, infecting people around her with that happiness, but her mood can change quickly and angering her is very easy. During her free time, she often contacts her older sister Margaret over the telephone, as Margaret is the only person she thinks she can rely on. Katherina can often be seen wearing a dress, a light blue scarf and a jeans jacket. She has dark blonde long hair (usually in a ponytail) and grey eyes.

Character Backstory (must be at least one medium-sized paragraph long):

When Katherina was 8, her father moved to the quiet town where the murder is about to happen. She and Margaret were very close, often seen together when Katherina was younger, especially after her father started gambling and spending most of his money there. At 24 years of age, Margaret moved away is pursuit of happiness somewhere else, while the 16 year old Katherina was left behind with her father. Only 2 years later, her father died, leaving Katherina alone in the town to pay her father's debts together with Margaret. Katherina started working part-time at the bakery around that time and three years
later also started working at the bar.

Application Form:
Nation Name: Barapam
Character Name: Kim Bong Cha
Character Description: Kim Bong Cha is a North Korean intelligence officer. She's now abroad, officially on a diplomatic mission but also in order to spy on the West. She usually wears a uniform. While she's an adherent of Juche, she's still a pretty good hearted girl, but at the same time she has no problem with killing enemies of the DPRK.
Image
Character Backstory: Kim Bong Cha was born in Pyongyang 20 years ago. She's from a prominent family, her father is a general and a cousin of the Supreme Leader. It should therefore not come as any surprise that Bong Cha had a very priviliged life. But even if the influence of her powerful relatives opens many doors, there's still things she must learn on her own. Therefore she's now in [insert name of rp location] to get field experience.

It might be worth noting that she thinks she has diplomatic immunity...
