Forest Role Play

Forest Role Play

In the middle of a huge sea of trees lies a tiny town.  

The forest used to be called Silva Vivus Umbrare, which, when translated from the old language, means the Forest of Living Shadows, but the people just called it the Woods. Still, the forest lived up to its old name.

The trees moved during the night, uprooting themselves and gliding across the earth to a new spot. Sometimes the guards on duty at night would catch a glimps of an elk or deer gliding through the trees with a tall, graceful figure on its back. Occasionally, a larger creature slipped past the guards and stole away a cow or pig or goat.

But even with all of the dangers which surrounded them, the people of the town were proud to say that through the half-decade of the existance of the town, they have never lost a person to the woods or to any creature living in the woods.

Until now.

This year, during the Cilana festival, a time in the spring when the people cut down all the trees which have grown at or moved to the edge of the town, three young children disappeared.

Alana, an eight-year-old girl with frizzy red hair and a quick smile, Jakob, a serious five-year-old boy with sunburned skin from too many naps in the open, and Zena, a talkative seven-year-old girl with intense blue eyes. Their disappearence stopped the Cilana festival and threw the town into chaos.

The townspeaple knew that the three would never have gone off into the Woods by themselves, for the fear of the forest was too deep set in everyone, so the townspeople could only think that they had been kindnapped or stolen. Although the townspeaple were frightened and scared and the parents of the children were frantic, only a few people dared to go out into the woods.

You, along with a small group, have decided to venture into the forest to see if the children can still be found. Your bravery has given the town new hope, and the townspeaple have provided you with weapons, tools, and horses. You will leave on the new moon.


Hi everyone! 

Here's the character sheet. (One character per person, please.)

Age: (Around 12-20 years old.)
Gender: (Can we try for an even boy/girl mix?)

I'll post my character once this thread shows up, and I'll start the roleplay on Saturday, July 25.

Other notes: Don't be afraid to move the story forward! Feel free to introduce your favorite kinds of magical creatures, write memorable settings in the forest, and put the charries in danger!
If anyone decides to drop out, which I hope will not happen, consider putting up one last post to take care of your character, whether to have them return to the village or be trapped somewhere or die. (Wow, that was slightly depressing!)

Write you soon!

By quirks, I mean habits or characteristics that make your character interesting or unique. For example, maybe a character has a habit of staring up at the sky, or a wierd fobia of insects, or is randomely very good at imitating bird calls. That's the kind of quirk I mean. :-)

Name: Ash

Okay, here's my character:

Name: Sebastian Whitacre

Age: 15

Gender: Male

Appearance: Tall, with bright blue eyes and dark brown hair pulled back into a short ponytail. He has a course green tunic, and has a bow and quiver slung over his hsoulders. His rope belt has several pouches and a large knife in a sheath hanging from it. His brown trousers are tucked into a riding boot on his left foot, and are rolled up on his right to reveal the bottom of a sturdy peg leg.

Personality: He's very serious, and always alert, like his father, who guards the town, taught him to be. He's suspicious of anything remotely magical or mysterius. He's taken their mission to heart, and so he gets irritable if anyone jokes around or doesn't take things seriously. He would rather attack a magical creature than try to speak to it. He doesn't smile much, but when he does, his whole face softens.

Quirks: He talks to the horses and woodland creatures as if they can understand him. He can ride very well even with the prosthetic leg, but even though he's very good at using it he can't run as fast as others.

Flaws: He doesn't trust very easily, and holds grudges.

Shipping: Open to shipping with girls around his age.

Other: He lost his right leg when a manticore attacked the town one year before the events of this story. Zena, one of the missing children, is his sister.

Can I join?

Name: Bradley

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Appearance: He has deep, chocolate brown hair, that's kinda combed out, but kinda messy, too, since he LOVES the outdoors. He has a grey t-shirt with a denim jeans jacket, with denim jeans and black sneakers. He also has tan skin, pale blue eyes, and a brown hat.

Personality: He can be shy, and kinda friendly, but also defending, and he can be a bit of a hot-head at times...

Quirks: I don't know if this is a quirk, but he can make friends really quickly. He also LOVES apples, especially the Red Delicious kind.

Flaws: He can get hurt easily, so if he trips over a tree root, he'll kinda just lay there for a minute, and he'll start bleeding where ever he hit himself hardest.

Other: N/A

Ohhhh, okay. 

I don't have any idea what quirks he's going to have.

When I make a character, I usually add things as I go along. Right now even I don't know much about him. XD

He is a skilled horserider, though.

(July 18, 2020 - 1:28 pm)

Name: Azi Kumar

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Appearence: 5'9, with medium/dark brown skin and a pointy face. Light build and curly black hair, with a huge smile. He has two long daggers that he holds in a reverse grip, and usually carries on his back.

Personality: Azi loves magical creatures almost as much as people, and takes it upon himself to protect them. He thinks they're misunderstood by the village, and knows a lot about them because he likes to spend all his time in the woods. He's a bit of a reckless daredevil but he doesn't like to be in the center of attention. He's very stubborn and will stand up to people who challenge his beliefs. Otherwise, he's pretty sweet and protective of the people he cares about.

Quirks: He likes to play the banjo to annoy people. He's very good at it, and abandoned other less annoying instruments in favor of one that would get people to leave him alone. In general, he's pretty musically talented. Also, he's highly claustrophobic and hates cats.

Flaws: He can act pretty confident and chill on the outside, but he's also hiding a lot of anxiety underneath that. He's kind of insecure, and used to fight people a lot to deny it. He hates admitting that he's wrong, and sometimes his reckless nature puts his friends in danger. Other times, he is relentlessly cheery and won't leave people alone. He's a little up and down, I guess.

Shipping: Boys and girls

Other: His mom died when he was nine, his dad and older siblings all live separately, and he's close to getting kicked out of his house because he doesn't have a lot of money. He's spent a lot of time in and out of the streets and he's been working since he was eleven. He's made his peace with it all, at least on the outside.
