Welcome. This is an RPG created by your truly, Photon.
An island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, nothing more than a few acres of reefs that are sticking outside the ocean. On top of them is a grimly looking, enourmous, black castle that is showing signs of old age. Huge cracks in the walls, some strange plant life crawling around the walls, as if gripping the castle with its elderly, dried and wrinkled hands.
Hundreds of rooms and over thirty floors on the inside, look extremely abandoned, with no one ever trying to clean up. Rooms, that are locked, floors that are unreachable, and some of them which don't even exist in our reality. Rooms, where a step on the wrong tile can show you a stairway to heaven, or grant you a quick, but grisly fall to hell. At first glance, the only residence inside is corpses, some of which are over decades old. But if looked deeper, into the very insides of the castle, many more living beings can be found, as facinating as they are frightening, all created by a the same mind of a madman.
Rules: Standart RPG rules apply as always. No power-playing or God-modding. Try to make it as fun as possible, play at your risk yadi-yadi-yada...
Character setting: Your character wakes up in one of the rooms on the bottom floor. I will be the GM type of character for this, i am the evil mastermind behind the plot. I will reside on the topmost floor inside my own room with a switch, trigger, button for every room, cage and trap. My goal is for you to never make it out of here alive.
Everyone will wake up in their own room alone. HERE IS THE MAIN TWIST SO READ. Your memory has been wiped out. You don't know your name, your age, your mother's name, your educasion, profession, hobbies, likes, dislikes... You don't even know if you have five toes or six on your foot. YOU DON'T KNOW YOUR ABILITIES EITHER. You have no idea that they exist, that you can use them, how to use them, control them, etc. THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOUR REFLEXES ARE GONE. If you are a qucik, martial artist type, you still got the moves. If you got super strength, you can still toss around a couple of tons, IF YOU TRY. If you got super speed and you try to run faster, you will run faster. So simply, you don't know your abilities... REDISCOVER THEM IF YOU WISH TO SURVIVE.
There are traps, beasts, zombies, ghosts, and the general hellish party to acquaint you through the entire castle. Their only goal in life or after-life is to kill as many of you as they can, or die by your actions.
Not ever door will open to you, as some doors are fake and lead to a certain doom. Some staircases are absent or completely blocked. Some lifts won't work. There are secret passageways, fake walls and mirrors. Be creative, and don't say "I walked through another door" in almost every post.
Interact with other players. "United we stand, divided we fall." Together you stand a higher chance of getting all the way to the top. Of course, you can lock them in a room with a couple of snarling werewolf/gorilla cross and let them die. Reason you would want them dead is, the lift to the control room would only go upstairs once and would fit only one person. There are no team victories and couples. Only one makes it to the top. Of course, you cold team up and when you get to the lift, fight it out to see who wins the entire RPG.
A note to characters with teleposrting skills. "There is a spell on the castle that will not allow you to teleport between floors, (so someone won't go "I tELapUrt To THee LasT Flor!!!! I PWNnnNnNN!!!1111!"), however once you "Remember your powers" you may freely teleport within rooms on the same floor that you reside in.
Also a note to the flying characters. No, you can't fly out of a window, fly to the very top window and say "I MadE ITT To Thee LASt FLuuR!! I aM SOO KeewLL!!11!!". Make your posts fun for the others to read up on and yes, you have to get to the top the hard way.
All of you will wake up with note inside your hand. The note reads the following.
"Hello (insert name of the player). Yes, that is your real name. However, thats the only thing you know. You don't know where you are, why you are here or even who are you. Scary thought isn't it? It's like waking up inside someone else's body, and having someone else's conscience. No this isn't a dream... For, dreams are never this evil. It is all but my sweet nightmare, and you are just a small part thats unlucky to get caught up in it. Dont run. Dont scream. In fact, I wouldn't even try to whimper if i were you. Death lurks within every shadow, within every light and it's looking for you. Right now, your chances of making it out of this place are none. You want answers? Find them, but remember, your are not alone. You are never alone inside Hell's Labyrinth. I would love to wish you luck, but you won't find Lady Luck here... Her rotting corpse is all that remains... Farewell..."
