Suggestion: Rising Darkness

Post by Mr. Riverwood on Wed Feb 11, 2015 5:39 pm

DISCLAIMER: IDEAS HERE ARE OPEN TO CRITICISM AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE. PLEASE SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS IN THE COMMENTS BELOW

This is the general idea:

        Beings of evil and negative inclination are flocking to Haven to create havoc and chaos. They come in many forms from spirits to grotesque forms of life. They can appear randomly and if any role-player feels inclined can oppose these beings or bend to their will. This will provide some story and some extra action for a role-players character.

Some back story:

      The world Haven is wounded. Following the events of the invasion, scars run deep both physically and psychologically. This is creating an emotional imbalance across the entire world. Much magical energy has been weakened and this leaves the planet vulnerable to many varieties of extra planar beings. An assortment of darker beings have become attracted to the planet, looking to profit or frolic in the chaos. They all can create havoc by controlling or manipulating anything they encounter.

How the encounters will work:

      This is going to be a creative endeavor to have people come up with the best they can in terms of supernatural evil. People should still abide to the common sense of not intruding on an rp without permission. Others can still role-play solo without impeding anyone else. When it comes to these encounters, the actions of these “evil” beings should be palpable enough for them to interact with the world. If one character is intangible to other characters then it should not be allowed to interact similarly.

Crafting a character:  

      The best way to describe the overall event is temporary. These villains would interact with the setting in a subtle way by creating small changes. Since many role players base their characters actions in Haven these villains can create an atmosphere to create the intrigue and interest.
     To encourage some thought we can analyze some good ways to make these living nightmares. Some of the most common ways involve psychological horror by attacking the victim’s personality with illusions and even dark secrets it resists to know. By having a character that thrives off the emotion of others, it can be entertaining to bring battles to even more complex levels of fighting.
      While manipulation and madness can be one weapon, and physical ones can be the other. A characters greatest drive could be the pleasure of torturing others. Ruling out these strengths is important for creating weaknesses. This balance is key in helping the character thrive in certain situations and avoid other threats. These vulnerabilities could range from magical to physical and even impairments it has.
      The possibilities and combinations are endless but the most entertaining ones are the well-crafted. It is wise to balance these character abilities with weaknesses just as equal. Without these, some of the fun involving these beings might run out fast. Truly frightening monsters are the ones almost tangible yet lie beyond our grasp.

Some final thoughts:

       I only propose this not only to make some other characters already present have something to fight but also make their actions seem more lifelike. How is your character flawed? Do these flaws show the most when secrets are revealed it wanted to stay hidden? Does your character bring out the most in themselves in a conflict? These questions are something for you to answer yourself.

I liked Draco's other suggestion, though I can't post because the forums fuck up everytime for me.

I like this idea. I might implement a bar on the forums for everyone and they can adjust their alignment from light to dark so they can setup how they are.
