    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all.

[Interest Check] A Killing Game RP

Right! This isn't a sign-up thread, first of all. I'd prefer to, you know, check interest first to see if people wanna do this.

Basically, I had an idea that's probably not very original, right. Danganronpa has a really interesting premise which allows for a lot of character interaction, so... why not have a killing game... game?

In essentia, everyone would make their own character. It'd probably involve each character being an Ultimate, but I'm open to whatever.

Like in Danganronpa, everyone would be trapped in a large area, with rooms dedicated to each character, and a wide variety of premises to interact in. Of course, also like DR, the game revolves around the promise that if you can kill another character, you become the Blackened, and if you succeed in not being caught, you can go home free. However, the Spotless attempt to find out who the Blackened is, by way of Class Trial. If the Blackened is found out, then they will be punished by death. However, if the Blackened escapes, everyone besides the Blackened is punished.


The game would revolve around characters interacting, likely in DM's for privacy, whereas larger gatherings would happen in-thread. It's clunky, I know, I'm trying to figure out how to make it work better. Anyways, once someone decides to murder, they will enter a 1-on-1 chat with the DM (me) explaining how they attempt their murder. I'd make sure that each murder is /possible/ to solve by adding in a few pieces of evidence, and making it suchly that the evidence can be connected in a cohesive way. I'm still working on it, and I might not be able to find a fair way, but I'm checking to see if people are interested in this sort of thing.

Big WIP.

oh, yeah, something else to note about danganronpa for those who haven't played it: the executions tend to fall on the side of gruesome, and while i'd be fine with writing them, i don't know if people would want to read them. i'm definitely going to cw them, but i think the rp as a whole should probably be 17+
