PostSubject: « Le Cirque de Rêves »   Sun Aug 26, 2012 9:00 pm

First topic message reminder :

{Sydni's role-play}
This roleplay is based off my favorite book, The Night Circus.

-=| Storyline |=-
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque de Rêves, and it is open only at night.
It is the year of 1905, and you are an entertainer at Le Cirque de Rêves, the Dream Circus. The circus travels to a new town, country, or even continent every week. Though, this is not your everyday circus; there's something strange about it. Possibly the fact that the performers are not your everyday performers either. Most possess magical abilities.

You are trained to be the best entertainer you can be and make Le Cirque de Rêves as memorable as possible. In the midst of this, something is not right with the circus. Maybe it's because Friedrick Thiessen, leader of the rêveurs was murdered. Maybe it is because of the oppressive heathens of the circus, réalistes. Maybe it is just your imagination. Anything is possible in the Circus of Dreams.

-=| Types of Entertainers |=-
Pyromancers: These people play with and can produce fire, of any color. Whether it's juggling balls of fire, shooting flaming arrows, or just spawning fire, they do it.
Contortionist: These entertainers have superhuman-flexibility. They can bend themselves into a box, form a human pretzel, etc.
Illusionist: These people can produce unbelievably realistic "illusions". They can even give themselves false appearances.
Animal-tamer: These people tame animals to perform tricks. (i.e., panthers, bears) Their secret is their obedience charms.
Fortuneteller: These performers can tell others their futures by use of a crystal ball, tarot cards, palm readings, etc. (There is only one. She is an NPC. maybe if anyone wants to be her apprentice?)
Acrobat: These entertainers walk the tightrope, swing on the trapeze, etc. They can actually perform magic that defies the laws of gravity and enable levitation.
Dancer: These people are usually foreign. They entertain by dancing with ribbons or performing dances of different cultures unique to them.
Manipulator: These people can manipulate or distort objects, animals, and sometimes people. They can do things such as make a cup bigger or change someone's face.


-=| Performances |=-
You can choose to have your own tent or to just have little shows around the circus grounds. Each have their own benefits. Tents allow you to always have a place to perform. While with just appearing anywhere, you have to find a clear, open area to entertain. On the other hand, performing out in the open allows you the opportunity to be more spontaneous.

-=| NPCs |=-
Non-playing characters. These characters are people part of the storyline who can be freely be controlled by anyone. Though some NPCs are 'taken', you are allowed to have relationships beyond friendship, if you wish. Also, some NPCs are dormant, meaning they serve no purpose besides giving you a back-story because they are gone now.

Other than this, performers can be in the circus by:
1. Being found performing in the streets.
2. Are asked to elope with the circus and run away from home.
3. Born into the circus


-=| Character Form |=-

Back-story:
Entertainer:
Special Abilities:
Tent?(Yes/no):

-=| RULES |=-
1. Deaths are allowed.
2. Do not use others' characters without their permission.
3. All characters (excluding "clients") must wear black, white, and/or silver. "Too much white and people assume they are wedding gowns, too much black and they become heavy and dour." Characters do not have to stick with two outfits; they can vary with each performance if you wish.
4. Everything in the circus is black and white. Food, clothing, tents, animals, everything. Although you can get away with grey and silver.
5. When a character is not performing, they must wear casual-clothing. This means do not stick to black, white, and silver. You are free to wear any color you wish.
6. Keep in mind that this takes place in the early 1900s, starting at: February 1905.
7. You are allowed to bring characters outside of the circus into the circus. They must possess some sort of talent that benefits Le Cirque de Rêves.
8. You are allowed to make no more than two characters who are not members of the circus. These people are called rêveurs; they usually spend their free time following the circus to wherever it goes. You can identify these people by what they wear, which is pure black and white, with one splash of red such as a scarf, a rose in the lapel, or a tophat-band. If your character is a reveur, in the "Entertainer" section put
"None: Reveur". Also, a reveur will most likely not have a "Special Ability". They just really love Le Cirque de Rêves.
9. Entertainers are not allowed to perform their "talents" on other people. Such as, manipulating someone's face hideously or "tame" a client into being your butler/maid. This obviously excludes fortune tellers.

-=| Locations |=-
So we know where we're at, where we're headed, etc. Don't want confusion. I'll have to update this every now and again! We might not hit all of these dates. Sometimes we can jump days, weeks, months, or years. Depending on what happens. When we're not in a city, we're on the circus' magical train traversing to the next city. (If -- is between dates, that is when we skip over time.) (!!!The week in RED is the current one!!!)

"Scusi? My name is Lewis.." he responded.

Ethel eyed him skeptically making Lewis uncomfortable.

Lewis's face flushed slightly. "What does she want from me?" he wondered as he shifted his weight to another side of his body. "So...what did you two come to me for?"

"Same thing. Lucas, Lewis.. They both start with an L and end with an s," Scarlet shrugged. "We came here to bug you for a while. Keep you company y'know."

Lewis pondered this for a moment. Lewis sighed, "All right. What is your name, miss?"

Lewis shook his head slightly and bowed. "Lewis de Angelis," Lewis said smiling. "You know, where I am from, girls usually curtsy when meeting new people."

"Where I'm from, the ladies bow their heads just like the gentlemen," Scarlet stood up tall. "Think of Lucas as a nick-name. I'm not good with names."

"All right, miss," Lewis smiled and looked at Ethel. "Ethel Cowell, if I remember correctly?"

"You have remembered correctly, Mr. de Angelis," Ethel replied and curtsied mockingly.

Lewis raised an eyebrow and laughed. "Lewis, please. I would prefer not to have multiple nicknames if possible."

Ethel chuckled lightly. "I am quite aware. I just wanted a decent laugh," she smiled slyly.

"Good to know that I can humor someone," Ethel smiled.

Lewis raised an eyebrow and spoke, "I am quite swell, thank you. I have only been preparing for my show and bracing the cold."

"Quite," Lewis responded.

Ethel looked around the room in boredom.

Lewis glanced at Ethel and noticed her cold expression from their previous encounter had faded into a neutral look; her voice that said, 'I will not take your tomfoolery' now played a more casual tone. Lewis did not know if he should feel relieved or worried with these changes. "How are you, today, Scarlet?" he inquired.
