    Default Shryke Manor

    Welcome to Shryke Manor, a rp by your friendly neighbourhood Vayre. The general premise of this RP is a Mystery/Horror setting.

    Setting:

    You walk down the path, gravel crunching under your feet as you move along. The area itself is pleasant enough to look at, but something feels… wrong about it. There is a chill in the air despite the afternoon sun, and your pokemon is glancing about nervously.

    Turning a corner you finally see the Manor, it is a gigantic building, built out of a dark grey stone, even from here you can see that it is richly decorated, with balconies and gargoyles lining the walls. To your left is a cliff, the house seems to have been built onto this, using the edge as a wall, to the right a forest.

    As you get closer the air gets colder and colder but you no longer notice this, in the back of your mind a small voice tries to make itself heard, questioning why you are even going to this place, but it is soon stifled. As though in a dream you continue onwards.

    The doors open smoothly as you approach, but by now you barely notice the world around you, moving forward blindly, as everything turns to a dark haze.

    Two circles, one yellow and one blue, break into the darkness, and all of a sudden the presence pushing you forward is gone. In front of you stand two Umbreon, one of which displays the blue stripes of a shiny.

    “Why hello there dear”

    Looking up you see an old woman behind a large oak desk, built into the wall. On the desk lays a large book, filled with room numbers.

    “Welcome to Shryke Manor, what can I do for you today?”

    Npcs:

    Empleh – A strange old woman that runs the hotel, she seems oddly detached from the events that happen around her.

    Nova – A shiny Umbreon that lives in the house, she goes to seemingly random places with a sense of purpose, and often disappears for days. Sometimes weird things happen around her, and sometimes she seems to cause unusual things to stop.

    Seraph – An Umbreon that lives in the house, while he does not belong to Empleh, Seraph is very protective of her, and is often seen following her around. He seems to have some ability to dampen whatever forces affect the house, though only near him.

    Mechanics:

    Shryke Manor is run in sessions, each lasting a day (ingame) These sessions will start at various points of the day, this starting point will be updated in the Current Info section at the bottom of this post

    Each day certain events will be played through, while there will be things tailored to players actions the main story for each day is in a specific place, players must actively find this if they want to be rewarded (more on this later). While each session has its own story, there will be certain things that carry through from each session. In this way players actions could make it easier for future players, possibly themselves, to survive, or maybe make a bad situation worse.

    Death is a possibility, and if you are not careful it is quite easy to die, but if you are careful you should be ok. Often things of this manner will be decided using a RNG, so that everyone has a fair chance to survive.


    Posting will be done in a kind-of order, each of you will post your actions, then I will post a general situation post, as well as the outcome of what happened with your characters. Then you all post again, and so on.
    Joining:

    At the start of each day new players can join, and old ones can check out (if they wish). Once enough characters have joined or enough time has passed, signups will be closed for that day.

    Checking out:

    If you will be unavailable to RP for a length of time then you can check your character out, this means that you can rejoin later if you wish, and your character will not die.

    Death:

    If your character has died you may make a new character after two ingame days.

    Rewards:

    Players who survive a night at Shryke Manor will generally be rewarded in some way, based on their participation in the events, this might be in the form of items, their Pokémon becoming more powerful or anything else that seems appropriate at the time.

    Rules:

    1-Don’t Godmod, this is obvious.
    2-If you feel you died unfairly take it to PM, don’t complain inthread. If you have a good point something could be worked out. Note that if your death is a result of your own stupidity, or from a bad RNG roll, this is less likely to go in your favour.
    3-All players have one pokemon, these should be small enough to fit inside the hotel comfortably.

    This RP isn’t really focused on battling pokemon, all pokemon are at level 25 or lower, with 2 Tm moves if you wish. They can use any moves in their movepool up to their level.


    More will be added as they are needed.

    Name: Shinichi Misao
    Gender: Male
    Age: 27
    Appearance: He has pale-greenish skin (I’ll explain during his history) with black circles tattooed around his forearms. The tattoos are spiked (In the picture not real a piercing) with small curves coming out of both sides all around it with two extending and intertwining around like grape vines stopping with a star shaped tattoo just barely away from the tips. He has dark-brown eyes that almost look like they can consume all shadows, leaving the world full of blinding light. His right ear is nicked at two spots with a jade broach pierced into his bottom lob. His hair is long, black with white streaks, and tied in a bun with a gold locket.
    He wears a white, loose, linen under shirt with cuffs that go up and over his thin, black, leather jacket. The jacket is coated with insignias and religious images sown onto his jacket. He wears black linen pants with thick leather boots. His collar has silvery rims and he wears a metal fleur de leis hanging just around his neck. His outer left pocket holds an old stopwatch with a chain that tucks into his jacket.
    Personality: Always after the truth, his mind is jaded and un-segregated with years of experience as a reporter. He will go to any lengths to discover the truth, even get into fights. He won't stop after finding one truth, because it may be false or incomplete.
    The most studious person you’ll ever find. Shinichi is always researching; even when he is fighting he has multiple questions running through his head (Half are completely unrelated to the fight). He’ll lock himself away in his room for long nights when he can’t figure out a problem and curse himself if he can’t know the answer (Though most of the questions are unspeakably complex that College Professors would have been stumped trying to solve).
    He won't mince words and hates people who belittle, oppress, and/or shun others because of social or physical differences. When he has conversations, he will talk in a monotonous voice and he has very few socially redeeming qualities. He is quiet, standoffish, and antisocial towards times that he isn’t working. Despite this, he is still working to project the truth to people.
    His most redeeming quality is his sense of honor and loyalty. If he makes an alliance, he will uphold it to the end, or until their primary objective is accomplished. He will keep his end bargains and always expect others to do the same.

    Bio: Professor, Battle Tactician, Cook, Combat Specialist
    History: Originally born and raised in Mahogany Town, Shinichi’s father abandoned his mother and him at an early stage in life. After 10 years of living on a ranch, Grey’s mother decided to move to her sister’s house down in Pallet Town. There he met Prof. Oak, whom he begged to teach him the ways of Pokemon studies. After nine years of working under Prof. Oak, Shinichi asked to join the expedition because he smelled a delicious problem waiting to be answered.

    Inventory:
    -A Computer equipped with hundreds of important battle strategies.

    Pokemon: This could be a single pokemon out of a trainers team, or maybe a pet, or a pokemon kept for protection, etc

    Species: Geodude
    Nickname: Knuckles
    Gender: Male
    Appearance: Due to an accident, Knuckles entire left hand was destroyed. To fix it, Shinichi held a variety of evolutionary stones (Fire, Water, Thunder, Leaf, Everstone, Hard, and Moon) in its place (B/c Geodudes are made of rocks, its body should be able to regrow limbs out of rocks) and has given it control over many elements.
    TM Moves: Flamethrower, Thunderbolt
    Personality: As dull as a Rock.
    History: Too tragic to mention.
    Hold Item: Fire Stone, Water Stone, Leaf Stone, Thunderstone, Everstone, and Hard Stone.

    Giles: The Doors will open when the blood flows. The Doors will close when iut flows no more. When Dawn is dead.
    Xander: But why Blood? Why couldn't it be a limp ritual?
    Spike: Because it's always got to be Blood.
    Xander: You know we're not exactly discusing Diner Menus.
    Spike: Blood is Life nimrod. Why do you think we drink it? It's what keeps you going. What keeps you warm. Makes you anything bud dead. That's why it's blood.

    Since I play villains better, could I be the creator of the house?

    I'm pretty good myself, but I can play the good guy if I have to. If no one else joins, do you want to make it a Private one?
