Ski Lodge;

You are dreaming. You don’t quite know how you know that you are, but somehow you do.

The scene comes into focus slowly, like an adjusting camera lens. The first thing that you see is the rain. It dominates the space, great gray sheets of it slashing down, smashing into the ground you hover above- which you realize is also water. You are floating above the ocean and it’s pouring. All right, not the strangest dream you’ve ever had. If anything, it’s quite boring.

And then the island comes into view. At first it’s just a smoky outline in the distance, a fuzzy mass of land on the horizon, blinking strangely. But without a warning, you are suddenly much, much closer, now hovering just above the rocky shore. You see the terrain all laid out ahead of you, much of it obscured by the still falling rain. It’s stone and rock, mostly. Some vegetation here and there.

But what really catches your eye is the lighthouse. You know it’s a lighthouse because of the white and red candy-cane stripes and the shape of it; it looks ripped straight out of an old photograph. The give-away, though, is the single piercing beam of light cutting through the dark and mist and rain, sweeping in a wide circular motion over and over and over.

You blink, and when your eyes open, the scene around you has once again changed. While you can still hear the lashing rain and winds, they are more distant now, and you realize that you are standing inside the lighthouse, both feet planted firmly on the ground for once. It’s a neat and tidy space, and in the center of the circular room is the light, spinning around and around and around.

There is a young woman sitting there, next to the light. Her dark gray hair is pulled into a tight braid and her eye color is almost black. A splash of freckles across her nose. She would be wholly unremarkable if not for the fact that she is staring right at you.

She leans forwards and beckons you with one hand, and you drift forward, not really able to stop yourself.

You reach her seat, and the girl looks up at you and smiles a small haunted smile. A single strand of hair slips from its tie and falls across her face. She says, “Oh, hello there. Are you looking for a little adventure?”

You wake up.

There is a form for you, sitting innocently on your bedside table, and it looks like this:






Useful abilities (magic not allowed):

Biggest fear:


Are you scared of ghosts?:

Is the ocean forgiving?:


At the bottom, written in little loopy curves, are the words ‘Please come, dear friend, and join me at Wayfarer Island. Adventure awaits you and nine other lucky people. -Storm.’

You are holding a pen before you even finish reading it all. Something deep in your mind is telling you not to fill out the form, but you disregard it.

After all, how much damage could a little adventure do?

Name: Darkvine

Pronouns: she/her

Age: I appear around 12, but I'm really not sure.

Appearance: long, shiny raven-black hair, bright gold eyes, slitted like a snake's. a few of my teeth are long and very sharp, hard not to notice when I'm smiling. my hair has a streak of bright green running through a bit of it on the left side. this is my 'rebellious streak', and I'm rather proud of it.

Personality: a bit like the ocean, actually. sometimes I'm calm, friendly, content, and a bit playful. occasionaly, though, I have the fury of a thousand raging hurricanes, shouting at the top of my lungs like the roaring wind. for the most part I'm pretty nice though :D

Useful abilities (magic not allowed): I have rather sharp fang- teeth. I said teeth. rather sharp teeth for eating very quickly and efficiently. my senses of hearing and smell are three times better than a normal human's, too.

Biggest fear: hundreds of wasps, hornets, and tiny ants crawling up my legs and onto my face... *shudders*

Luggage: my laptop, IPad, stylus, wireless headphones, a slightly glowing sword with an elaborate blue hilt that has a shiny, yellow, triangle-shaped gem set into it (yes, Zelda fans, this is the Master Sword. or at least an accurate replica.), and my tye-dye black/green crocs. 

Are you scared of ghosts?: nope! I might involuntarily shriek if jumpscared, though. then attempt to strike up a conversation.

Is the ocean forgiving?: no. the ocean is as cold and unforgiving as a Darkvine after her beloved crocs are stolen from her and worn by someone else.

Other: I play Legend of Zelda, watch The Mandalorian, and read Keeper of the Lost Cities, if anyone would like to talk about that stuff.

Name: Tenebrous (Will accept 'Tenney' as a nickname.)

Pronouns: She/her

Age: I'm in the 15-17 age range!

Appearance: I'm in black and white like an old movie character, and for the most part my clothes are too; except for rare, small details of color. 5'8 with bright eyes, and a nose that's slightly on the bigger side. I don't mind it though, I rather like it. My outifit, hairstyle, and makeup look would change depending on what historical era I was dedicating myself to for the day.

Personality: That's a hard one... I guess I'm eager to learn about new things, a history nerd, and not easily daunted? I do my best to be as kind as I possibly can to people unless they're doing something terribly wrong. I can't start a conversation for the life of me, but I love talking to people. I can also be pretty uncoordinated and I love to draw the things I learn about.

Useful Abilities: My history and georgraphy knowledge. I have some knowledge about nature, health, and classic literature too.

Biggest Fear: Being forgotten. 

Luggage: Clothes, accessories, toiletries, chocolates (I might be addicted), sketchbook, HB pencils, eraser, books, Swiss Army knife, First Aid kit, rose perfume, and my history textboom.

Are you scared of ghosts?: No. They're just humans who have met awful fates. I pity them.

Is the ocean forgiving?: I can't say. It's mood changes with tides, weather, and seasons.

Other: My voice sounds like an old movie recording, but the quality, tone, slang, and accent would depend on what time I was dressed as.

Talking is hard for me sometimes. When I get happily excited, I fumble over my words.

Can't wait for this to start!!

Age: 13

Appearance: I am slightly taller than average and slender, with a fairly feminine

socially awkward, weird, and, admittedly, a bit eccentric. I am an
outcast, and am often alone, but rarely lonely. I am often found
daydreaming about going on an adventure, writing, drawing, reading, or
spending way too much time on school assignments. I am adventurous,
mischievous at times, creative, quick-witted, and have a slightly dark
sense of humor.

Biggest fear: being forgotten

Luggage: Necessities, my sketchbook, pencils & pens, a stack of books, a
journal, a short sword with Celtic engravings, a dagger, and a bow and
poison-tipped arrows.

Are you scared of ghosts?: not at first, but if they become a threat, then yes, I will be afraid.  

Is the ocean forgiving?: we mere mortals are not entitled to the ocean's forgiveness, however while the ocean is often cruel, it is sometimes kind as well.

Name: echo. (i used to be echo hallowswift but that was too much of a mouthful. i changed my cbsona, too :D)

Pronouns: she/her.

Age: 13.

Appearance: i meant to copy and paste my appearance from another ski-lodge but i lost it T-T. short black hair that fades into a light grey-blue. i have blue-grey eyes with long lashes that look like i'm wearing mascara--i'm not. i wear a light grey-blue tee with white on the edges that says "yer a wizard, harry, so come to a snape-infested castle with me." i wear a white longsleeve shirt under my tee. i have dark grey-blue glasses, too, but sometimes wear them, sometimes not. my nails are painted dark grey-blue with white lightning spidering down them.

Personality: brave and calm, usually scowling. i'm quiet but can have a good time. i dislike spiders entirely. i have a slow metabolism. i'm a survivor, though usually look a bit standoffish until someone begins to talk to me. i'm very clever, perhaps too clever for my own good.

Useful abilities (magic not allowed): oh, if magic was allowed--i should have lightning--but oh well. *not me guilttripping, lol* i'm quite clever and i figure things out easily. i'm a good rhymer and i'm great at rapping. i'm great at climbing as well and i enjoy scaling trees. i'm great with a sword, too.

Biggest fear: spiders, but that doesn't stop me from killing/getting away from them. and death, too, so i'll likely do everything i can from not dying again--i'm a former valkyrie and still am an einherji, so i died once already--if i die again, i'm gone.

Luggage: clothes, walkman (cassette player), cassettes, earbuds, blue-grey iphone with white striped and clear case, my arctic fox (his name is jerbo, THANKS) and my sword. THE SWORD IS KEY.

Are you scared of ghosts?: not at all. well, perhaps occassionally. i actually have one living in my house right now, irl, lol. but that's another story.

Is the ocean forgiving?: it can be, but it can also be treacherous.

Other: i'm bringing my sword and fox. >:3 also my white pegasus, but he can wait outside.
