Genre: Modern Mystery
Rating: R – Violence, Sex and everything in between.
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Timeline: Present Date
It started with a letter arriving at the Chicago Police Department; it ended in murder.
On May 25th the first letter arrived in a simple unmarked red envelope baring a strange symbol and an encrypted note. Inside were clues to a murder in the making, beginning with the first sign of the western zodiac. They thought it was a hoax, but in the end there was a murder. Ashley Ridings, an in house singer at the Aries nightclub, was found in her dressing room stabbed with a knife using a ram’s horn as it’s hilt. When a second red envelope arrived, police took it seriously. Working night and day to try and decipher the clues. A second murder happened – Joseph Taurus was found hung by a rope tied to ox horns adorning his office walls. Again, a third murder happened; twins born under the sign of Gemini drowned in a hotel fish aquarium.
It’s now June 18th with three murders and no leads. All the department has is a new letter with a new clue. A special team has been formed to work on the investigation. How many more will be killed before they find the Zodiac Killer?
Players can be one of the official investigations team, someone else in the department, reporters, someone close to or related to the police department, someone related or close to one of the murdered victims, or someone that could possibly BE one of the future victims. Remember, if you play someone that could BE a victim there is a possibility that your character can DIE in this game!
The Zodiac Killer is an NPC and sends a red envelope to the police department with clues to the next murder. Characters have to try and decipher the clues if they want to save the next victim, but so far there is very little in the way of information about the serial killer and his methods. What is for SURE is that he is going in order of the Western Zodiac and his victims either have the sign on the zodiac or is directly related to something with the name of the zodiac.
This plot is character driven. That means, things will happen depending on what the characters do in the game. If they play their cards right, they could save a life, if they take too long, someone will die. If they get too close to the killer the character themselves could be in danger!
There is also the possibility for other killers. Copycats or other random events. It’s all a matter of how the characters drive the game!
Zodiac Murders – Official Game Info
Our Plot Details are located Here: [url=http://space-kitten.org/rpg/zodiacmurders.php]Zodiac Murders[/url]
Welcome to the first official game since… a really long time! XD Being an official game, that means we have… [i]expectations[/i]. Nothing too difficult, this is basic Roleplay 101! I’ll explain everything here in this thread, and if you have any questions… just ask!
[b]Basic Plot:[/b] A serial killer is murdering people using the Western Zodiac as his calling card. He occasionally sends [i]red envelopes[/i] to the local police & news stations with clues to his next murder. As an NPC his actions will rely on what characters do in game. (For example, if characters aren’t able to reach the next victim in time, someone might die. Or he might attack any characters that get too close to his identity.) This game is 100% character driven. Players are welcomed and encouraged to plot out stories for their characters, as the NPC and game will mold around what you come up with! Any character could be a potential victim. Whether you design your character related to a zodiac thing, or whether you lag badly in doing your posts… your character has the potential to die. (Where we won’t kill an active player’s characters without permission we WILL murder any characters from missing players if you’ve been given notice.)
– Players can start new threads and new locations whenever they feel it necessary. If it’s a new day or a new location, it’s good to start a new thread. Make sure your thread is labeled like “Day 1” so we don’t have issues with timelines. Do NOT wait for me to start YOU a thread, because that is not my job! That’s yours!
– There will be a sticky thread where CLUES are listed. Any characters that work for the police or news will have been able to stop by their station and learn those clues. Clues learned by characters thru gameplay will be listed under a special category called “DISCOVERIES”. Whether or not characters tell the authorities about their discovered clues, is up to them!
– Bios must be Reviewed and Approved by Diana before you can play. Post your bio in the “Application” thread. Your review will be sent by Private Message (in case there’s anything embarrassing!). When the bio is approved, it will be split from the thread and moved to our Biographies forum.
– I don’t care if you post 3 lined posts or 10 paragraphs, as long as you know the difference between practical and redundant. It doesn’t take 5 paragraphs to say hello and walk in to a room, just as it should take more than 1 paragraph to describe walking in to a new scene. (see posting guidelines below.)
[b]Participation Wish:[/b] 1 post a day.
[b]Participation REQUIRED:[/b] 1 post a week.
[b]Participation Lagging:[/b] 2 weeks of no post time = a killed character. You’ll get 2 warnings/requests to post.
I understand that not everyone can be online to post everyday, nor can we always post once a day if we’re waiting on someone else to post. HOWEVER, I really really encourage players to get involved in wild posting sprees with their partners when they can. ENJOY getting online and playing with wild abandon! XD Be excited and impatient about when you can post next, and eagerly awaiting the next exciting moment in the game! THAT is what makes an rpg fun and successful!
If take longer than 2 weeks for you to post you’ll get two requests/warnings, and then we’re killing your character. Unless you have an excuse and seriously can not be online for X amount of time (in that case, just let us know!), there is no excuse for not being able to post and keep up. It takes 10/15 minutes to type up a quick post. We don’t expect novels. If you’re bored/stuck, just say so, and we’ll DO something about it! We will come in your thread and shake things up just for your entertainment! Laggy Players can ruin a game for other players, so please have respect for your partners and try to post as often as possible.
Be practical. With practical posting, you can keep a game moving fast with little lag time or boredom! Here’s a few tips to know what sort of posts are needed soon.
[b]Long or “Novel” Posts[/b]
Don’t slow up the game or waste energy writing a novelesque post when it’s not necessary. There are quick and simple scenes, where you will have quick paced moments between characters. These sort of scenes do NOT need epically long posts and can get boring REAL fast when people have to read through a bunch of flowery words just to get to a short and simple point.
— You are painting a picture of a new scene. This lets all the other players know where they are, what they hear, what is around them, who they are with, ect.
— Your are introducing a character to a scene. It’s good to describe what they look like, what they are wearing, ect, so that other players are aware.
— Backgrounds or flashbacks. These are “illustration” moments where it’s good to use a little creative writing.
— You’re just having back and forth conversation with characters.
— A fight or action scene with another character/NPC where you can only do so much action yourself.
–You’re REdescribing something you’ve already stated before.
[b]Short or “One Liner” Post[/b]
Short posts are ideal for quick and fast paced scenes. However, a short post can leave other players hanging and wondering “what do I do now?” if they’re done when “something” needs to happen. When you must make a short post, always consider “will this post make an difference in the scene if I removed it later?”
— You’re just chatting or socializing. Idle conversation gets boring fast, so typing long posts for these would just drag out a scene longer than needed.
— You’re involved in a high action scene with multiple characters. If you are not controlling the NPC or multiple characters, you need to make the post “to the point” so that the next character can react. If you add too much in an action scene post, it will get confusing and players will miss some of the actions.
— A scene is getting SLOW and dragging behind. A short post would not have enough content to push the scene forward.
— You are starting a new scene, because no one will know what’s going on.
[b]Thread Getting SLOW and BORING:[/b]
Sometimes players get carried away with idle conversations and scenes between characters. These scenes are good for developing relationships between characters, but they DO get really boring if you drag them out too long.
If you are in a thread where the idle chat is just getting BLAH – Use a “Long” post to introduce EVENT or ACTION. This is a perfect moment to stumble across a clue, have a bad guy attack, or even just have something random or stupid happen like a freak fire or a clown parade.
Be aware that the thread might also have “reached it’s end”, where it’s time for characters to move on to a new scene. Try starting a new topic/scene.
If you’re dying of boredom, but have no idea what you could do to living things up… ASK. We’ll throw an NPC post at you and stir up trouble!
UNASKED BUT NOW ANSWERED QUESTIONS!
[i]Can I play multiple characters?[/i]
[i]Can I be THE Zodiac Killer or have my character directly related to him?[/i]
No. That guy is 100% NPC. For ease of being able to alter the storyline at any moment, we can’t have any characters related to him or playing him.
[i]Can I play a copycat killer or other bad guy?[/i]
Yes! Feel free! <3 [i]Can I suggest possible clues or find X clue in my thread?[/i] Yup! We have a "Clue Box" thread where you can suggest clues that could be found in game, and we will be crossing out the ones that have been found! [i]Do I HAVE to have my bio reviewed?[/i] Yes. XD I have to make sure your bio meets requirements. The biggest "issue" will be making sure you character is not too similar to any other characters in play, or that your bio contains enough information to really KNOW the character. [i]Can my character have powers, even just small ones or be a magical creature?[/i] NO. This is a "realistic" game. All characters must be human, and there will be NO super natural events. [b]BIO EXPECTATIONS[/b] This is really simple. A quick list of what I am reviewing in your bio. If you can follow these guides, your bio will likely be approved without problem! - A character that is as unique and different from other characters in the game. Make sure you read the biographies that have been approved before yours. For example, if too many characters have dead parents I'm going to say "hey, that's getting cliche in this game". Or if too many characters have the same color eyes. Or if too many characters are working the exact same sort of job. Or if too many characters are trying to fill the "stoic badass" or "super sweet girl" roles. Bios are accepted FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, so if you want to be able to play a certain character type or plot point, you need to finish your bio ASAP. - A well developed background history of the character's life up until now. This is MOST important, as your character's history is what GIVES them their personality, and what has made them the kind of person that they are. What ever personality you give them, something in their past has likely helped to make them that way. - Whys and Hows. If you have any interesting or peculiar, even super special traits about your character. Or even just a completly bland character, make sure you have some sort of reason or explanation for it. Example: Katie is so horrified of dogs she can't even breathe when she sees one. That sort of thing is just asking for a reason why behind it! Example: Jimmy hates cops. Hatred of cops don't come out of no where. We must know why! ...OKAY! I feel as if I am forgetting something. c____c;; In the meantime, I am now officially accepting applications or answering any questions. This game will begin [i]immediately[/i] as soon as your bio is accepted and you have someone to play with. XD See the OOC Plotting Thread to discuss characters and find partners to get involved with.

Genre: Modern Real Lifey Soap Opera Drama
Location: Emerson, Pennsylvania
Timeline: Present Date
Emerson, Pennsylvania is a fast growing city; home to several wealthy families, established businesses and of course the occasional nutcase. It’s a city like any other, but when skeletons come out – everyone has their story. Jeremiah Douglas has recently passed away – his death striking unsettling news to many people. A single event that ties the binds of otherwise unconnected lives.
Like in any soap opera, you are playing a character in this interesting city. There’s no such thing as a quiet normal life for someone living in Emerson. There is always a mysterious murder, a cheating lover, a stalker, a big trial, dead babies, kidnappings, charity balls, and bitch fights. Life is a never ending whirlwind of dramatic events. Events that [b]you[/b] bring to the table with your characters and their history.
Our story begins at the end of Jeremiah Douglas’ funeral. He was an interesting man – but with secrets! Characters might know this man – or think they knew him! His death will bring up mystery and complications. How does it affect [i]your[/i] character? You tell us. >:]
In a soap opera there are many character stereotypes! This list is just a few of the most common ones. Because this is a modern date real life setting, supernatural stereotypes are not allowed. These stereotypes are just suggestions! If you have your own unique ideas, by all means, run with them! Anything is possible in a soap opera!
Old Money Families: There are always a few “old money” families in a big city that seem to own many of the business, properties and even people in their pockets. These families have been around forever, possibly even able to trace their families back to European countries, and they are always surrounded by loads of personal drama or tragedies. There is always a murder or two in the family, missing members, bastard children, money woes, divorces, the black sheep, the queen bee, and of course a deep dark family secret.
Professional Criminal: Be you a mobster, professional thief, drug dealer, or embezzler, there are bound to be those very prominent professional criminals. But beware, when more than one comes on the scene, there is always a scuffle about who is the best and who gets the gold!
The Cops: Cops come in the form of detectives, police chiefs/commissioners, FBI agents, spies, and undercover cops. A cop can be the good guy hero, always looking to catch his man… or end up being the bad cop – paid by someone else to cover up crime, or being a criminal themselves. Cop characters tend to get in everyone’s business, especially when there is illegal drama unfolding!
Teen Drama: One can’t have a soap without everyone’s kids going around and causing some trouble. Runaway teenagers, boyfriend stealers, prom night, or kids just getting involved in grownup affairs. You can count on the teens and kids to create their fair share of troubles!
Foreign Heir: A mysterious foreigner that just so happens to be; A) really really rich or B) heir to a royal thrown. In some cases all of these turn out to be false, and sometimes they are true, and then… they disappear or end up murdered! Whichever the case may be, this person is always very mysterious and very little is known about their past until something very major happens!
Savvy Business Person: Those smart, beautiful people that have their own business or are excellently perfect at what they do. Lawyers, doctors, owners of night clubs, a giant business empire or one really popular establishment. Almost all of the character stereotypes tend to be one of these successful people.
Goldi Locke is a hired maid to work on the home of the Berh family. Only she discovers all isn’t “just right” at the Berh home, and finds lots of Mafia No-Gooding!

The Horrible Truth of Uthlav Dulanc
To keep a place running “perfect” it requires a heavy hand. Anyone that breaks a rule or shows signs of illness is “removed”. Elders and people with signs of illness are taken to fuel the massive shield that’s protecting the city. Criminals are treated the same, if not expelled to the “Savage World” outside of the wall. Everyone is told and believes that these people/prisoners are being taken to a happy lala place.
The rules and laws of the city are strict. Everyone wears the same colors and styles, you do the job you are given, you live by curfews. You do not speak out against the council or cause any sort of unrest to the people.
Outside the Walls
The Savage World outside the walls is a wild uninhabited wilderness. Giant beasts, from mammals to dinosaurs. There are cannibal tribes of humans, but also tribes of people dispelled from the City. Still, no one in their right mind wants to be back inside the walls, unless they are freedom fighters or “terrorists” determined to open the eyes of the denizens inside.

…but that’s never really how stories end.
On his wedding day at the wedding feast, the Sorcerer came and he was mighty pissed. That Witch the prince and his princess killed during their harrowing tale was his wife – and he fully intended to have his vengeance. He killed everyone at the dinner. The King and Queen, Lords and Ladies, even the Princess Bride. But the prince… he had a special punishment for him. The Sorcerer locked the prince away in his own dungeons. There to rot for the rest of his life, knowing his wife was dead and that the Sorcerer ruled his kingdom.
Years later… The kingdom isn’t doing to well under the Sorcerer’s rule. After all, he is an evil sorcerer, and they tend to only care about power and crazy experiments. The land is dying, the people are hungry, and the Sorcerer continues to sit in the castle not caring a lick about the world outside.
And so, when it seems like hope is lost, there are the brave few, the unnoticed ones… the people that you never hear about in epic tales. A plot to break the prince (the rightful king!) out of the dungeon and take back their kingdom!

“Here is true peace,
Here is true calm.
All this time I’ve loved you,
And never known your face.
All this time I’ve missed you
And searched this human race.
Until the end of time,
Until the seas run dry,
Until the earth stops turning.
To find the one I’ve waited for.”
“It’s a love letter.”
“Hell naw, it’s a riddle to some hidden treasure!”
“You’re both wrong.” A tall woman known as Crys interrupted the bickering males as she entered the small cavern. It was well hidden in the side of the mountain, one would have never known it existed unless you were right on top of it. Thank Daren for being a fool and tumbling down the side of the mountain after his precious gun.
“Close, though. It’s an ancient legend leading to what the villagers believed was a god.” A chuckled from behind led the three companions to turn around. At the cavern entrance was the Professor and his assistant. He looked genuinely pleased at their find. “The legend itself is more complex than that, I believe. A village girl fell in love with a god that she worshiped faithfully, though she had never met nor seen him before. So enamored with this god, she left her home to search the world for a way to reach heaven.”
Daren raised a disappointed eyebrow at the story. “Does that mean there’s no treasure?”
Crys and the others rolled their eyes, but the Professor merely chuckled again. “Quite the contrary. The girl eventually came across a great temple filled with many riches.

[solid][hdor]ABOUT THIS ROLEPLAY[/hdor]
THIS IS A REBOOT. If you have ever played in one of my “Katrinka” roleplays before, FORGET ALL THAT. I am starting this universe over from scratch to give myself a chance to play plot things I never had a chance to. :D Feel free to bring back an old character to start fresh with too!
This is a SOCIAL ROLEPLAY WITH IMPROV GMING. That means the object of this roleplay is to interact with other characters, and from those interactions I will create a plot and story around you. The more interesting and developed your character, the more you interact, the more awesome the plot turns out! This roleplay in particular is about creating relationships and can lead to flirting or sexual situations, thus it’s for 18+ members only. (Because I am an adult. t__t)
My roleplays are NEWBIE FRIENDLY so even if you are terrible at roleplay or have never participated in a ChaRP before, this will be easy for you to get involved in. :D Ask questions, let me know when you need help.
As always, if you have any questions about this plot or roleplay, just ask away![/solid]
[solid][hdor]FILL OUT AS YOUR CHARACTER[/hdor]
Whether you are there by choice or not, the staff at Katrinka’s made them fill out the form before they could go further inside! This needs to be filled out AS your character.
Age: (You must be AT LEAST 18 to Sign up!)
I’m Looking For: (Males, Females or Both!)
Returning Member: (Have you used Katrinka’s Services before?)
My Picture: (A picture OR a physical description.)
I Describe Myself As: (Your personality from your point of view!)
Others See Me As: (Your personality from OTHER people’s point of view!)
My Interests Are: (Things you enjoy doing!)
A Bit About My Life: (A little background history about you!)
PLAYER NOTES: (This would be anything important about your character that they would not want to list on their “application”. This could be a formal character bio if you wish or just any brief notes. :D)
[solid][hdor]EASY CHARP TIPS![/hdor]
[SIZE=4][fa]fa-asterisk [/fa][/SIZE] Don’t worry if another player is doing something similar to your idea. DO IT ANYWAY! Similarities and things in common happen in real life too. Everyone also plays differently, so two characters who are both “sweet and shy” will still end up being totally unique people. Two assassins could create a fun and interesting conflict!
[SIZE=4][fa]fa-asterisk [/fa][/SIZE] Talking to other players about their character before the roleplay is a GREAT way to create connections and background for your own!
[SIZE=4][fa]fa-asterisk [/fa][/SIZE] Post SHORT AND FAST. Charps are very quick pace and contain a LOT of players. Players can’t wait 20 minutes for you to write a wall of text. If it takes you longer than two minutes to type your post, you are taking too long and might get lost in the action. This is an exercise in quick and concise writing!
[SIZE=4][fa]fa-asterisk [/fa][/SIZE] Like in Real Life, a character may not be able to acknowledge or notice your character immediately because they are engaged in doing something else. (For example a new character walking in to the room, but the other characters arguing about muffins and do not see them.) Don’t get discouraged if you go can’t get someone to interact with you right away. [I]Just keep posting[/I] and doing actions with your character, or even approach others who also seem to be idle and it WILL happen.
[SIZE=4][fa]fa-asterisk [/fa][/SIZE] Do not take events in the roleplay personally or assume that bad reactions are because they think you/your character sucks. Everyone is playing a character and reacting to things as their character would![/solid]

YOU are someone looking for someone. Most people are here looking for love. Some are looking for a hot piece of ass. Others might even have unexpected motives. Your reasons for attending the Singles Mixer are entirely up to you. Players can get as creative with their characters as they like BUT keep setting in mind.

The plot is entirely dependent on YOU, so make sure you have an interesting character and an idea of what you want to do/accomplish with it. >:D Your beautiful Hostess Katrinka will occasionally nudge your character towards people she thinks you might “hook up” with if you are getting too shy.
Anything might happen, so lets have some fun… >:3
