So, this is going to be a part of the canon of Dashnet City. I will be getting back to the main RP. The Depths, maybe I'll come back to it, maybe I'll just say how it ends and go from there. Broken will be entirely scrapped, as it's been so long that I've forgotten what I had planned for it, plus I don't think I planned for much plot relevance anyway. But this is an important part of Dashnet City canon, that I will be getting into now.
You're invited to a poker night at Sapphire's mansion. During this poker night, you . . . well, you get hammered, everyone gets absolutely hammered, people get violent with each other, and you get knocked out. You wake up and a lot of shit's happened since. You soon come across the corpse of Sapphire, lying on the ground. And things only get crazier from there.
We're going to have limited spots, with 1 character per role.
I've done a die roll behind the scenes to determine who the murderer is. All roles were included except the Detective and the Victim, but including other NPC roles.
Characters who are not taken up by the time it's time to start the RP will be taken up by NPCs.
Characters already present and their roles:
Sapphire - The Victim
Recently deceased. Everyone had a falling-out a while back, but he decided it was high time to get the band back together again. Turns out it wasn't such a great idea, because he kind of got murdered by someone in this house. (Ability: None.)
Damien Morse - The Ex-Mayor
Ex-mayor of Dashnet City. Everyone knows him. He's a great guy, and a bit of a push-over, if I'm being entirely honest. Absolutely distraught over Sapphire's murder - he's the only one who's kept in touch with him since the falling-out, though they still haven't been on the best of terms. Knew Mark since they were kids. (Ability: Immune to the Lawyer's "lie detector" ability.)
Wilfred Solus - The Colonel
Used to be a member of the DCAF(Dashnet City Armed Forces). A bit out of touch with the situation, it seems. He claims to care, but he isn't affected at all by Sapphire's murder. Always has a gun on him, with a bit of a trigger finger. Seemingly trying not to focus on the murder mystery at all, instead preferring to just joke around and enjoy being at the mansion. Also, hated Sapphire after the falling-out. He has some secrets about him . . . especially since he seems to keep appearing out of nowhere. (Ability: Can teleport, change outfits or obtain objects automatically when not in direct line-of-sight of anyone.) He carries a revolver around, too.
Redwill Holmes - The Detective (Brainstorm)
One of those who were less than happy with Sapphire after the falling-out. Despite that, they do care and they're trying to figure out what happened. All of their previous partners are dead - each death more tragic than the last, and some of them being very ironic, which somehow makes them more tragic. Takes on the Lawyer as their new partner. Very skilled at what they do. (Will be PMed if there's a clue in the room they're in.) This role carries a handgun.
Brainstorm's notes: Not gonna say much about myself now, detectives are better mysterious than open-book, but I like asking questions or otherwise being quiet, I prefer wearing black and grey, and rubbing my chin, and I’d usually fall into my thoughts when I got stuff to think up, usually unnoticing the world around me I’m also of medium height, pretty thin, dark brown hair, same eye color, too.
Dask Winterspoon - The Chef (iceklaus)
Sapphire's chef, was not involved in the falling-out. Can act downright scary at times, but is just trying to do their job without interference. Their Little Buddy (a ceramic chef statue that, coincidentally, looks like them) is a camera, which allows them to know if someone sabotaged the food or something(nobody did). (Ability: Will be PMed anything suspicious that happened in the kitchen from the time of the poker night starting to now when near their Little Buddy.)
Iceklaus' notes: Always holding a sharp and shiny cleaver named Sally, I always treat cooking as the most serious thing, a nutritious and safe meal is always the priority.
Rob Frake - The Technician (Lava_Entity)
Another employee of Sapphire's. They were affected by the falling-out, but mostly because their boss got frustrated and ended up shouting at them fairly often(the Butler doesn't get this treatment because they were his friend, and remained loyal to him during the falling-out; the Chef didn't just because the guy scares him, not gonna lie.) They understand technological stuff, obviously. Was only working here because there's no other job openings. They're good at what they do. (Ability: Can repair things much easier.)
And, character roles available + basic descriptions:
The Butler - Sapphire's butler, and also a friend of his. Was not involved in the falling-out at all. Out-and-out neat freak. May or may not be a drug dealer. (Up to whoever plays them whether they are or not. It has little affect on the actual plot.) Knows the entire layout of the building - there's not a secret about the house they're not privy to. (Ability: Will be PMed about hidden areas and the like nearby them.)
The Lawyer - Good friends with Damien since college. Also trying to figure out what actually happened. Only just met the Detective today, and almost immediately took a liking to them. Wasn't hit too hard by the falling-out. They know how to get information out of people. (Will be PMed if another person is lying to them about something.)
To join, just state a name and the role you play. You cannot pick a role already taken by a main NPC or another player. You cannot join as the same character as Dashnet City. You also cannot have the two characters sharing a name between the different RPs, as the canon is shared. (Looking at you, Brainstorm. Gotta come up with a creative name here.)
HOWEVER, Broken is going to be scrapped, so you can re-use characters from there. You can also re-use characters if they were booted from Dashnet City, however re-using a character and then going inactive again will mean you probably won't be accepted in another thing if there is another.
