A castle has erupted from the ground somewhere in the ancient forests of Eastern Europe and has begun spewing forth legions of what can only be described as the Undead. Ill tidings are everywhere as something unnatural claws it’s way to the surface of this world. Strange eldritch portals are emerging from thin air as more monsters pour out...but with these monsters from other worlds come heroes as well...
Welcome to Collide, my forum roleplay thread! Rather than have a detailed plot and storyline in mind I’ve decided to introduce something more open-ended to everyone. The down and dirty gist of the plot is as follows: someone or something has raised a giant, Gothic castle and it’s surrounding buildings seemingly out of the ground itself. The area around the castle is an ancient span of old growth forest which straddles the border between two third-world countries. Shortly after the castle appeared rifts in the fabric of space and time began to open up for miles around it. More monsters spilled through-- villains cast adrift through space and time--but something came with them. Heroes of the realms--the Belmonts, the Morrises, and other heroes lost to myth and legend. It is the siren call of this castle which draws would-be heroes and their dark counterparts to an uncertain fate...
This unique setup will allow for an interesting mechanic: there very well may be two Alucards in the same room at the same time, two very different Simons, and the like.With this in mind let’s review the rules for this Roleplaying thread:
1.) Respect your fellow players at all times. While I understand that your PC (Player Character) may be mortal foes with someone else’s, there is no reason to take the tension of the RP thread to the larger forum abroad. We’re all part of this forum to enjoy Bloodstained with our fellow fans.
2.) With regards to multiple people playing the same character I am going to cap the limit of repeated characters to 2. Any more than this will become confusing and I sincerely do not want to see players fighting over their favorite characters. With this in mind OC (Original Characters) are completely welcome. They will be bound by the same rules as all other characters however, as detailed below.
3.) Fair play is fun play. There will be no tolerance of god-modding, auto-hitting or other violations of basic forum role-play etiquette. There is to be no permanent killing of any PC unless it is agreed on by both parties. With this in mind not even the immortal Dracula and his perennial minion, the physical manifestation of Death, can ignore every attack. A defeat does not signify character death.
For convenience sake I have included a small character skeleton to help new, up-and-coming roleplayers flesh out their OC while still leaving enough wiggle room for characters to develop in an organic way:

On this note I will personally make the first post tomorrow in order to get the ball rolling on what I hope will be an excellent thread that carries us all the way to the debut of Bloodstained itself!
