Nightmare Night Special Roleplay! (Open until October 31st)

Post by Diamond Shine » 10/9/18 01:52 AM

A few things about this roleplay.

I, myself am not going to partake in the roleplay, my role will be that as the narrative and those of NPCs. You and those who join you on this adventure are welcome to start your entry and departure when you feel the need of it. Shall we begin? :3

It's a cold windy Autumn night. You find yourself in a dark study of some abandoned castle that once belonged to a very cruel ruler in this area of Equestria. Your only source of light at the moment is the pale yellow autumn moonlight shining through the windows as the shadows of barren dead tree branches are cast upon it as well. The silence of the room is at most eerie, not even the chirps of crickets rang out in the grass below, only the howling of the wind was to be heard. No memory of how you go there or why you're here, all you need to know is you must escape....and you're not alone...

After regaining consiousness in such a strange, dark place, Eye does the first thing that any mare in her situation does.

She panics.

The only light coming from the windows didn't help, as she started to trot in place, her heart racing and breath accelerating in shock, until her logical side finally kicks in, ordering her body to calm down, and assess the situation.

Dark room. A studio, by the looks and arrangement of the furniture. It wasn't a first floor, as the ground couldn't be seen from the closed window. Probably a second or third, judging by the tree that casted a rather eerie shadow over this room.

How or why she got there, the Arcanist didn't knew. She doubted that she was alone, and she couldn't feel her horn at this moment, wich meant no extra sources of light, nor a quick getaway.

This could be interesting... If she wasn't trapped against her will. And probably kilometers away from home... And with the faint feeling of impending doom lingering in the cold air.

So the mare started to look around, after her initial panic attack, hoping to find, either somepony, a door out, or a candle, lantern or gaslamp to light the way.

As the Gryphoness finally awakens, Rayna would gasp as she inhaled heavily before coughing roughly, sitting up and taking a look at her unfamiliar surroundings. It is unknown to her how she got here, and she had a bad feeling that there may be hostiles hidden within the area. She did notice that there is a light source coming from the windows, and the environment was completely silent.

Rayna huffed and stood up as she realized that her crossbow was not with her. What matters now is that she needs to evacuate from the area. She took a look around for anything that she could take and make a torch.

Rayna would also see that she's not alone, not with a hostile but a seemingly friendly mare who awoke in the same area as the Gryphoness did. "You awoke here too? Seems that I'm not the only one..."

With Rayna the Griffoness and Eye the Arcanist had finally stirred from their unconsciousness in the dark, eerie study. Studying the room was a good thing, in the far corner beside an unlit candle on the wall was what looks like to be a door,

This door would then break the very eerie silence as it would let out an audible creak as it opened slowly,...but nopony or creature was seen opening it. As if it was some paranormal force at work. The now open door led out into a pitch black hallway with many doors lining it, a single torch by the great large stained glass window at the right end of the hallway that featured a green coated earth stallion with a red mane and tail observing what looks like to be another stallion, an unicorn, wearing an executioner's mask and wielding a large cleaver with his magic, as he himself stood over a table with a mare strapped down to it, she was looking at him desperately. Like she was begging for mercy.

It should be clear to them, they are in some old castle that once belonged to some ancient and deranged lord or king who enjoyed exacting brutal methods of punishment. The goal is clear, they need to work together if possible and get out as soon as possible!

Which door would they try first? They have the options of a decaying wooden door directly across from the room they are in, a velvety cushioned red one near the window and single torch, a velvety green cushioned one a fair distance from the red one, another rustic wooden door in the room next to them, and on the other side of hall end was two double doors that were royal blue and had the depiction of a yellow dragon on it.

Upon hearing the gasp of the gryphoness within the room, the Unicorn squeaked in surprise, her heart still throbbing in the back of her mind after the recent shocking revelation. However, she looked non-aggressive, and just as confused as she is, so Eye sighed in relef.

Offering the Gryphoness a nod of confirmation, Eye sets sights on the candle, that she's quick to scavenge. At least until the door opens by itself, with the mare standing right next to it. All colour drained from her face as she felt something push it open, even with her horn numbed down. She didn't like this place one bit, the sooner they were out, the better.

Taking in a deep breath, the mare peeked out of the doorframe, looking at the right first, then the left -Looking first for any figures in the dark, then taking in the details of the hallway, and the stained glass to the right, wich send shivers down the unicorn's spine.

Several doors around, one more grandious and decorated than the last. The idea that the most decorated ones would be locked or trapped crossed her mind, until she saw the most dilapated one, in the opposite side of the hall.

Looking back to the gryphoness, Eye gestured for her to come closer, then pointed towards the door directly ahead, hinting that it might be worth checking. Perhaps they'd get something to light the candle and the torch. Moving in total darkness was never a good thing, considering what could be lurking in there.

At least the gryphoness had claws to defend herself against the lurking shadows. Eye had a horn, but it probably wasn't pointy enough to pierce too deep.
