      Whisky Nocturne

      WHISKY NOCTURNE

      And thus another doomed ship departs.

      Mm. The writing bug has me again. And as it began to itch no-Name suggested something that might appease it, in a somewhat serendipitous manner.
      Another play at ANTI-HEROES. Which is a fucking stupid idea.
      But with a rebranded new name and look because it'd be nice to see new faces playing.

      But I'm willing to play it out again until I get bored.

      The Rules

      Spoiler for The Rules:


      Character Submission
      Spoiler for Character Submission:


      Background and Premise

      This is the story Anti-Heroes Blond was going to be. Perhaps. With a variety of new ideas and the usual mish-mash-up of various cultural influences.

      Primarily it is the story of a maverick band of misfit army-convicts who are let loose in the warzone, trapped between the forces they once fought for and the enemy. There will be jungles, there will be savages, and they will be wildly, wildly Lovecraftian gods to combat.

      An old-school adventure story with plenty of ridiculously fantastical adversaries and mishaps for the intrepid players to overcome.


      This really marks the beginning of a shiny new era for Forum RP Games, along with - I hope - an array of sparkly other new games that I'm pushing people to do.
      Most crucially this game is about me proving to the staff that I can make what was Arcane Arena into an active, fun old joint with plenty of kooky cats having a pretty jive old time in as it should be, rather than the stagnant inactive wasteland it became.

      And of course, proving to the staff that I can do this marks Stage One of my inevitable rise to the position of Head Admin. Your joining up and participation with this game is a vote for me as GodKing of all DV. And if that isn't encouragement enough I don't know what is.

      So fill in a neat little character sheet from above and post it here, whether you're new to it all or not, and just watch as the fun unfolds. It's easier than my rambling makes it look.

      Easier for you. Not for me. I have to write fucktons. ._.

      Character Name: Jack Heflin
      Gender: Male
      Age: 26
      Appearance: 5'9"; Hair is black but shaved off. Average build--neither too scrawny nor too muscular. Caucasian. Green eyes and a rounded jaw.
      Favoured Weapons: Rifle or pistol.
      Talents: Decent at medical practice. High stamina and speed.
      Persona: Meek with periods of determination and strong will. Intelligent but lacking in any combat experience. Once Jack gets to know a person he can be very personable. Has perhaps an unrealistic view on the good of mankind and holds a desire to help people.

      Atta kids. Five is a good number of characters to start with. So we'll call that the initial round-up.

      Not that this should stop anyone wanting to join from posting a character sheet, mind. I could always do with having back-ups around.

      Will write up a Prelude shortly to set the scene and get the writing juices going, then write up a Chapter One for you to react to. Hang about, kids.

      EDIT: A list of Dramatis Personae just up. These ought to be the principle character for awhile. Just to prove I have plotlines thought out.

      To newer players, you don't need to start worrying about responding or do anything until Chapter One. And I'll make it very clear when you need to start playing. The dramatis personae, the prelude...these are just warm-up setting-setters I usually run through before the game begins, as such. You can read or pay no heed, is up to you.

      Kiza and GA are pleasing additions.



      Prelude almost written. And so the cycle of demand and false promises for work on my part begins.

      Prelude is done. Got distracted and wanted to put up something, so failed to squeeze in all the ideas I wanted.

      Will force them on the coming first chapter, which signals the beginning of you kids playing along.

      Oh. And.

      Teehee. ^______^

      But seriously dome or death.

      Edit:

      Read now. Good writing as usual. Love it (especially the dome part).

      Oh and I chanced on this before and must say it's most epic. Brings back the memory of when I made you slave over Dominion's doomed third chapter and then took the next train out to fairyland. Sorry about that. ;.;

      Well that's just aces, kiddo. Just. Aces.

      Fire alarms woke me up 04:30am. All irritated and awake now. Plastic Beach pumping out. Goddamn I might write Chapter One now. And kill all you fuckers off. Yeah. Goddamn.

      Hmmhmmhmm.

      Base structure of the first chapter written out, but I still need to sort out player details and fill in a few blanks.

      Anytime now. I might stretch it to seven players and put Daichi in it. There's feasibly room.

      In the midst of typing up the first chapter. Before I collapsed into sleep last night it seems I scribbled up an entirely new opening to it, as well as a whole fucking new plot line that deviates wildly from original plans. Oh well. Typing it up faithful to sleepy me.

      What messes with my head is that I hand-wrote all the [i] bits where I felt emphasis was needed. And often it wasn't. At all.

      An entirely unrelated picture montage now that does not in any way reveal my sources for derivation.

      BOOM. Aaah.

      Chapter One. Done. Yeah. I said I was doing it.

      That was difficult. But next time it should be easier. Because I'll have you kids for inspiration. And I don't have to write out any more backstories for awhile.

      No Daichi yet. Sorry. Realised how hard six players alone are.

      Still. I liked that. It varied in quality wildly. As per the latter half is Godawful and the first half is simply awful. Effort levels.

      Some nive varied backgrounds for all your characters, enjoy reading those through. They might contain details that affect you later on in the game, or they might not. Lord knows.

      So, actions ought be in for next Saturday. But I'm not being too strict about it just yet.
      Do do do do do do do do try talking to one another. Here in this thread or elsewhere.

      If you don't communicate it'll end up being a fucking killfest for those keys. Or something. And that's not fun. Work together. Or scheme against each other. Something compliccccated, not mindless.

      Atta kids. I'm done for now.
