THIS IS SERIOUSLY THE BEST SURVEY THINGY I HAVE EEEEEVEEEER DONE
I. Choose up to five (5) of your favorite original story characters that will embark in this role-play. If you don't have five (5) then leave them blank (or create a character on the spot!) Be sure to give a little description of them:
Delvin Cole, a sorcerer who knows it all but isn't very experienced.
Annelise Scarlett, a steampunk inventor who comes off mean, but just looks our for everyone's best interest.
Felix Issacs, a resourceful, young, tattooed man who is able to access the dreamworld mainfraime without the use of a tryptic scope, but at the cost of sanity.
Frederick Belmonte, a nervous but tough half-zombie who used to be a rockstar, but got bitten and turned before his will overpowered the Z-virus.
Karrigan deSainte, a twenty-three year old engineer who lost her arm and parts of her abdomen in a car accident during the fallout of WWIII, only to have them replaced by her own prototype prosthetics, but the radiation in the air has fused them to her and the fuel they use has mixed with her blood.
II. One of your characters decides to make a grand entrance into a random tavern. How does that go? Pick either Character One or Character Four :
Delvin flips his hood up, smirks and draws a confident breath. He focuses and conjures a small fireball in his right hand and a wind spell in his other. He fuses them and sends a plume of fire swirling around himself, and uses the wind to float down through the window, but the spells reverse and he ends up crashing into the floor in a fiery comet.
III. Jealous, Character Three tries to make a grand entrance as well but somehow fails… why is that?
Because though Felix is usually pretty savvy, he is distracted by small, mild hallucinations and focuses rather on entering the tavern safely.
IV. A character is surrounded by many enemies and decides that the only thing they can do is fight! How does that go? Pick either Character Two or Character Five
Annelise smacks the button on her shoulder and activates her wing and stomps on the button in her jet boot, sending her wheeling into a powerful, jet-propelled roundhouse kick that knocks all the foes back, giving her a chance to escape.
V. Character Three is depressed and decides to get drunk.
The visions intensify and Felix's head throbs for hours, until he eventually breaks and sits catatonic on the floor, hallucinating and breathing in jagged spurts. Felix does not make this mistake more than once.
VI. An event like no other takes place and Character One and Character Two get into a battle to the death. Who wins?
It seems pretty evenly matched, until a familiar that Delvin conjures turns on him when he tries to imbue it with shock and instead ends up damaging it. It lunges for him and knocks him down, but Annelise delves into her hip-pack and throws a bit of jerky closeby, drawing the familiar's attention. She uses the moment to rescue Delvin and the two settle their differences. In retrospect, Annelise's resourcefulness (and love for dried beef snacks) won the day.
VII. Character Four or Character Five accidentally drink a love potion. Who do they fall in love with first? Character Two or Character Three?
Karrigan drinks the love potion because she believes it to be an alternate fuel that could supercharge her prosthetics, but instead it makes her pass out. She waves up to Annelise, who is tending to her and wiping her forehead. The potion takes effect, and the next few meals are filled with awkward silences and fights over the seating arrangement. Annelise investigates Karrigan's behaviour and concocts (with Delvin's aid) a cure potion. A few days after consuming the beverage, Karrigan confesses to Annelise that she's felt that way since before the potion, but her feelings are unrequited; Annelise has her sights set squarely on Delvin.
[That's okay, though. I'm sure Karri will find love one day ;D]
VIII. Since Character Four or Character Five are under a love spell, how do they try to spoil their partner?
Karrigan shines and buffs Annelise's boots and wing, and makes her own recipe of beef jerky. :>
IX. Character Two tries to steal from either Character One or Character Five. Do they succeed?
Annelise slips her hand into Delvin's hood as he sleeps, and lightly bends it upward, exposing his scarred face. She grins, and lightly steals a kiss, without his notice.
X. Character Three throws a slumber party but only invites one person. Which character did they invite?
Felix invites Delvin, because he notices the outcast attitude that Delvin carries, and he actually gets him to open up a bit. They have a great time and Delvin conjures up some snacks without a single hitch!
XI. All of the Characters get together for a 'wholesome' dinner… does it go well? Give details.
Delvin is obsessed with turning water into wine because he read it in a book once. Karrigan is pouting and glaring at Felix, who asked if she had a fork attachment for her prosthetic arm. Felix is trying desperately to cut his steak with a spoon and knife, since he has no fork, which Annelise has stolen to create 'the ultimate dinner utensil.' Frederick flinches, wildly uncomfortable with his position between Annelise and Delvin because he knows in his heart that Delvin might turn his water to lava by accident or that Annelise might steal his plate while he is watching his water glass.
XII. Mysteriously, Character One dies. Character Three and Character Five are the only ones around. How do they react?
Felix drops to his knees and weeps openly. He only just began to feel like he had a little brother, and now he's gone... The sadness overwhelmes him. Karrigan does her best to express her sorrow, but there is still a tiny, tiny part of her that wonders what this means for her and Annelise. Upon thinking of this, she instantly becomes remorseful, and her attention is refocus and she begins to mourn for Delvin.
XIII. Character Three gets into an accident. What were they riding? How did it happen?
He was out riding his brother's motorcycle. He hadn't been on it since his brother died, so he was feeling somewhat strange. Out of nowhere it began to rain, and Felix started to tear up, so he swerved a bit and ran off the road, the bike flipping and coming to rest against a large rock at the bottom of a hill. Felix rolled and took a great many bruises and scrapes, and a few cuts, but more or less he made it out fine, with the exception of a single cracked rib.
XIV. Character Two tries to get a job with the help of Character Three and Character Four. How did that go?
Felix and Frederick suggested Annelise try a job working at a local music shop, since they knew a lot about instruments, they appealed to her by pointing out the various mechanisms on instruments, which turned out to be this particular instance's downfall... She did well for a few days, but she was eventually fired for taking apart seventeen guitars and three drum kits to make a new instrument called a "Ralldip," which incidentally became quite famous and became the most popular instrument in modern rock music. She is credited with its invention, but the music store where she worked keeps the royalties.
XV. Character Three or Character Four decide to leave a tavern. How does that go? Why did they leave?
Frederick decides to leave the tavern because he is having a hard time controlling his urges as a half-zombie. Responsibly, yet woefully, he exits the tavern, and immediately runs into a zombie feasting on an innocent villager. The sight sickens him and he no longer hungers. He steadies his magnum and takes it out in a single shot to the head, in view of all the townsfolk on that side of the village. Upon seeing this, the innkeeper rushes to him and thanks him profusely, while apologizing for his earlier rudeness. (Seeing Frederick usually causes most people a great deal of shock and terror, so he is used to it, though it does make him sad.)
XVI. Character One wakes up in the bed with a random character of your choice!
Delvin yawns and stretches, wiping the sleepies from his eyes and enjoying the linens of his familiar bed. He rolls over and screams, falling out of the bed and onto the floor. Frederick wakes up and lifts Delvin back up onto his bed. "Sorry, man, Felix needed the bedroom all to himself... Madel dropped by..." he said winking and nudging Delvin in the ribs.
"You could just ask next time..." Delvin trailed off and rolled up inside his covers selfishly.
XVII. A character of your choice becomes a supreme being and creates the world in their image.
Delvin spends months isolated in a cave, thought to be dead, but he trained and focused all his energy within himself, multiplying his power exponentially. The world began to whither and melt, and all the technology of the world that wasn't related to Anne or Karri fizzled out. The world was born anew, rivers flowing with purple, glittery miasma, mountains rising high and topped with frost. The world was bathed in magic, and all was peaceful and quiet.
XVIII. Before we go, all of your characters want to take a moment to ask you (their creator) for something that they have always wanted.
1. Delvin: Is there some sort of spelltome that can make me better at magic? Or-or is there an enchantment I can use on my hood to fortify magic skill? OOH! Or maybe an enchantment that fortifies enchantments? Or maybe...
2. Annelise: Can I have more jerky, please? I'm running a little low today... :<
3. Felix: Hey, did you hear that?
4. Frederick: Will the world ever be safe again? I'm fine with the way I am but... Can we stop this thing? /broods
5. Karrigan: When do I get to fall in love? All I see are straight people and gay guys. >:I
THAT WAS SO GODDAMN FUN, I LOVED EVERY SECOND!!!
