THE FESTIVAL OF THE DAMNED.

Once a year, at the first Full Moon of Autumn, the local village of Rowanfel celebrates [b]Reaper’s Night[/b] with [i]The Festival of the Damned[/i]. A tradition that goes back for a thousand years as a way to appease still-roaming spirits and prevent them from harming the living. Very few remember the origins of everyone’s favorite traditions. Why endless sweet baked goods are shared. Why a stag is sacrificed and it’s antlers burned in the bonfire with dried bushels of sage. Why you are only allowed to light orange candles. The festival is a fun day of spooky things and celebration! People are contented to be merry, celebrate with their friends and family, and enjoy this traditional heralding of the fall.

But on [i]this[/i] Reaper’s Night, a group of troublemakers have decided to wander out to the cemetery and have their own party. And this may be the greatest terror of their lives! Someone will make a [i]grave[/i] mistake and learn why superstitions and traditions are no laughing matter.

[color=lime][b]PLOT BREAKDOWN AND CHARACTERS[/b][/color]
You are a villager of Rowanfel. You are most likely one of these young people that are sneaking out to the cemetery, though you are not limited to that! You can play a human or magical creature. Magic is okay too! Bios are not required, but I would LOVE to see a quick blurb about your potential characters, because it could help me put together some plot points. >:3[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
