Due to a desire to better the Pleasanton system, Pleasanton has moved to Vietnamese Noodles. You can find the main thread here. Please make sure to read over it!
Once you have, please resume business as usual in our new location! Thank you.
The Old Opening Post:
A quaint little town, where nothing bad ever happens.
Set within the quaint little British town of Pleasanton. However, under the calm exterior of this town lies a dark secret... What that secret is, well, let's just say it's something so terrifying that some people would even kill to keep it a secret. The question, then, is where do you fit in? Are you perpetrator of this conspiracy? Are you an unknowing pawn in it? Are you an innocent bystander? Or are you something completely different, with your own secret set of goals?
Whoever you are, one thing's sure. There's something going on in this sleepy little village. Something strange...
In the RP, you take either the role of an insider or an outsider. Either a villager, a denizen of the town, or someone who's found their way through the forest and chilly, English fog to this little haven... From there, you will be let loose to explore the town. Of course, it is at the GM's discretion to trigger events as they please. Yes, this includes events which seem to come from absolutely nowhere. However, I assure you, everything that happens has a reason (either plot related or due to some sort of circumstance.) Basically, take this RP like improv. Just roll with whatever happens.
Now, as for what I mean by pseudo-mafia... Well, since a majority of the way this RP works rests on the unknown and surprises, forgive me if this seems a little vague. Unlike mafia games, this RP doesn't really have... sides. However, it does have secret character roles, goals and twists. Not every character may receive one, so don't panic if you don't. In that case, simply make it your goal to uncover the secrets off the town or whatever you figure your character would do/is after.
How To Play
Private conversations and actions within this RP are totally supported. Just use PMs! Or, like, contact me in another way that has a log. For example, Skype. However, if you are holding a private conversation with another character via PM or Skype, please make sure to send a copy to the GM as well.
If you have any special game mechanics or abilities, they will be explained to you. Don't worry.
Do note that death is possible. So, be on your guard for the possibility of it.
Speaking of which! Certain careers/roles within the town have special limits. Typically, there will only be 2 of an occupation maximum. However, things like the Mayor can only have one applicant.
Outsider counts as a special role. Write that down as your career (in addition to your main career, so "salesman/outsider") in your app. At maximum, there are only allowed to be 4 outsiders in the town at any given time.
In any case, as long as you're not breaking site rules, or performing a major RP faux-pas, you should be fine.
