Title: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on October 29, 2011, 04:39:01 AM
This is a sort of timeskip from the Lucid Nightmares RP (http://scottwesterfeld.com/forum/index.php?topic=6930.0). 3 out of the 5 players we started with had to drop it, so WELCOME, NEW PLAYERS! You can play a lucid dreamer, a muse, or a half-cyclopes (which, in this RP, is closer to a vampire than they are to the big bad giants of Greek legend.)

The story so far:

The Greek gods of the dreamworld are at war with one another. King Morpheus (of memory) and King Phantasos (of creativity) banded together against King Phobetor (of nightmares.) Their powers come from special gates: Morpheus had gates of horn, and Phantasos had gates of ivory. Phobetor was building the gates of reflections, and the other two feared that their brother was stepping up his game in some arms race. They tore it down. The nightmares have been irrepressible ever since, and the mortal world is beginning to notice.

A plague of encephalitis lethargica has swept the waking world, because of the battles in the realms of dreams. The only ones immune to it, are those rare people who are able to take their waking memories and logic with them through unconsciousness, when most other people forget. This awareness allows them to have superpowers in their dreams, too. These are the lucid dreamers.

Character cards for muses and cyclopes will follow shortly. The character card for a lucid dreamer follows:

Name:
Age:
Nationality:
Waking Life: What is your character's history? Appearance? Does s/he have any favorite routines, fandoms, or hobbies? How does s/he interact with the people around him/her?
Dream Power: Start with just one for now.

Hey, can I join? I don't understand much of what you've written, but I'm sure I'll catch up.

And which teacher, Clouse?
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on October 29, 2011, 09:36:32 AM
Basically, in this RP you're dreaming about being in a Greek myth. You can be a mortal, who goes about their modern day life, but when they go to sleep they can control their dreams a little, enough to be superheroes. You can also be a winged humanoid muse, or a vampire (I just call them medians or cyclopes to keep with the Greek mythology theme, but they're really vampires.) The latter two don't wake up, because they are... well, they're dreams.

I think Clouse meant character, because I had a plot for each of the 5 characters that joined the last one. Don't be too sorry, Clouse, it's no use sticking around if you're not having fun ;)

Post by: Miss Lucy on October 29, 2011, 09:47:56 AM
Of course you may  :) Sorry about the confusing boggy-down details. I just get more excited thinking up plots and settings that I forget about characters, and RP just seemed to be the obvious outlet for that.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: FlamingStar on October 29, 2011, 10:13:36 AM
Oh no, that's fine! And can I be a guy. I'm always way better at being guys. Which might worry me somewhat, but it doesn't.

Name: Darcy McLaughlin
Age: 18
Nationality: Ooh, I'm gonna make him an Australian, just like me!
Waking Life: Auburn hair, longish, blue eyes, tall, tanned, very Australian accent. He was born in Australia, and lived there for ten years, before his parents split and his mother movied to (where-ever this is set). He is sarcastic, shrewd, intelligent etc. I think there was something else, but I forgot it.
Dream Power: (some help here guys? not sure what would be a good one)
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on October 29, 2011, 10:36:34 AM
Some of the characters that dropped that I made plots for around their powers included: being able to conjure and control four elements (this would have led to Atlantis), being able to conjure and control light (this leads to more exploration of the nightmare world), being able to read people's minds and emotions (this was supposed to be the key in a murder-mystery at the end of the last chapter that hasn't gotten resolved yet.)

Four elements sounds cool.... *pleads*  ;D
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on October 29, 2011, 10:59:50 AM
Oh, fiddlesticks. I got my charrie cards mixed up (since there were so few players, I wrote them down on actual index cards.) Nerd_herd might still be playing Bree, but I don't see why there can't be two elementalists now if so. Clouse was offering his shapeshifting powers, which would have developed into creating dream characters and races. (But, admittedly, in a tiny workshop of a sculptor and not in a vast underwater city run by a Titan Empress.)
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: FlamingStar on October 29, 2011, 11:01:15 AM
Oh, that's all right. I'll have something else then. You've really planned this out, haven't you?
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on October 29, 2011, 11:05:43 AM
Well, you're not all completely railroaded. The murder-mystery, for example, was going to have various consequences depending on who the dreamers agreed to prosecute. I knew who really did it, and what would happen if they put any of the innocent dreams in prison, but they all still had a choice.

Er...the deluge of information the players had to juggle, was probably what killed the LM RP. I'll do my best to keep it sweet and simple this time!
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: FlamingStar on October 29, 2011, 11:07:01 AM
Pfft, complicated's good! I'm looking forward to this now!

She step-father is Irish, but she dislikes him very much and refuses to have anything to do with him. She keeps her father's name. She's got sharp ice-blue eyes, white-blonde hair, a slender frame and she usually sticks her nose in the air. She wear's her great-grandfather's military jacket all the time, combat boots laced up to her knees, and tattered jeans. She's a little snobby, but she's quick-witted and courageous. Usually. She has and extreme fear of spiders, and an interest in any kind of myth.

How about shapeshifting? Your character can take the form of any person or living thing that she wants. Later in the story, she'll be able to have a dream-item that can take any shape.


FlamingStar, I PM'd Nerd_herd and she's dropped her charrie too. You're our new elementalist! Yay!

Title: Re: Winged Muses RP

Oh, and my charrie also has an annoying penchant of calling people by their last name.

Vladi and Damon wake up from the dream in the previous RP. So much has happened that you've forgotten the exact waking life details provided by Rory, Jack, and Bree. Luckily, the art website that you met at is still up and running.

Darcy, Pandora, and Max all go on with their waking lives, too-- wherever they are in the world.

Doctors Without Borders and The World Health Organization are alarmed by the spike in what they've diagnosed as encephalitis lethargica Type 2. They have not yet found whether the cause of symptoms are prions, or viruses, or what-- but hope that a powerful general innoculation combined with a new (but safe) kind of neurotransmitter, will prevent more cases.

That's why the government says that it's Line You Lot Up To Get Stuck With A Needle Day for everybody at work and school! Yaaay-- owie. Have fun.  :)

Post by: pageinbooks on November 01, 2011, 10:09:57 PM
Vladi woke up, feeling a bit groggy. She rolled out of bed and went downstairs. Her parents were already gone to work, so Vladi ate her breakfast alone, thinking about her dreams, as she usually did.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 02, 2011, 09:20:19 AM
Max sighed and turned over glancing at her clock ugh stupod school I just wanna go back to sleep. Max rolled oit of bed and stood shakily and yawned she glanced out the window at the still dark dky wishing it was the weekend.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 02, 2011, 09:27:46 AM
Vladi flipped on the news and was alarmed to hear that the sleeping sickness was still spreading. She wondered how many people she knew were being effected, and shuddered at the thought.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: FlamingStar on November 02, 2011, 03:03:53 PM
Darcy opened his eyes. It appeared he wasn't still asleep, which was a lovely surprise. He'd had a few false alarms when the power had gone out, but everything was fine now, and for that he was glad. He rolled out of bed and pulled on some jeans, remembering that it was Needle Day yet again. And that would mean that Annoying-American-Girl-With-High-Pitched-Scream would be having a field day. He sighed and found a t-shirt.


(where is this set?)
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on November 02, 2011, 04:29:17 PM
(where is this set?)
(When your characters are awake, it's everywhere-- Britain, Russia, Belgium, Australia... When you're asleep, you can all meet in the dream world. We can ignore time zone difference so that your characters can chat online or something while awake. Unless you want to move to Britain, where two of the characters are anyway. It's really your choice. You're also permitted to powerplay any characters that don't have players-- your parents, classmates, coworkers, people on the street, etc. :) )

Post by: holywalrus2 on November 02, 2011, 07:26:59 PM
(I think I'll be in Ireland...)

Pandora rolled onto her back, the light of morning blazing even through her eyelids. "Mon Dieu," The girl groaned. "Why does school have to start so early?"  She muttered to herself. She dressed herself in a T-shirt, jeans and pulled on her boots. She bounded down the steps and went into the kitchen. "Good morning, ma cherie." Her mother said. What's she so happy about? She thought. It's Needle day.

Post by: pageinbooks on November 02, 2011, 09:37:02 PM
Vladi noticed a note on the fridge from her father. She took it off the fridge, and read it aloud. "Dear Vladislava, Remember to go down to the hospital and get your shot today. Your mother and I dont want you to catch this sleeping sickness. love, your Father."
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: FlamingStar on November 03, 2011, 06:58:32 AM
(um, walrus, why does and Irishwoman keep speaking French? Or was she originally french?)

Darcy looked out the window at the horrible English weather. He didn't know who had decided it had to rain all the time, but all he wanted was a bit of sun. Just a little bit.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 03, 2011, 07:00:54 AM
Vladi sighed, then headed down to the hospital for the shot. As she walked, she wondered how the rest of the dreamers were coping.

Post by: Flight girl on November 03, 2011, 10:51:53 AM
Max dressed quiuckly in a loose fitting t-shirt and cargo pants moving carefully and quietly as not to wake the other kids. i dont want to deal with spohie and brenna bawling at me for wakin them. She shook her head to try and get her hair to settle in place then went downstairs taking the stairs two at a time, jumping the last four. She walked into the kitchen and spotted a note on the table. probably from mary. Max read it quickly.
It read:

Kids,
They are giving out shots at school today.
Make sure not to miss school.(that means you elliot!)
I dont want to get sick so get your shots.
                     Mary

must be for that sleepin virus they says been goin round. Hehe personally id like to catch it, then I could sleep all day long.max stood momentarily thinking about how nice it would be. Max sighed then picked up her backpack, and an apple. She walked over to the door and sat down on the floor and tied on her chucks. She stood with a sigh and walked out the door and slammed it loudly behind her. She smirked That probably woke everyone up. max walked down the street heading for the bus stop.

Max climbed pn the bus. She figured shed just duck im the bathroom to hide while they gave out shots.

When Vladi got home, she slumped on the couch and closed her eyes, then opened them again as the phone rang.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: FlamingStar on November 03, 2011, 01:09:33 PM
Darcy sat in the hospital as the needle slid into his arm. He'd decided to skip school and get the needle at the hospital. He tried not to wince, then thanked the nurse and hurred outside.

Max reached school then since they were doing shots first sat down in the bathroom

(She's originally Belgian, but her step-father is Irish.)

Pandora pulled on her green military jacket and zipped it up. She grabbed her backpack and slid it onto her back. She was almost out the door when her mother called out to her, "Don't forget your shot!"
"I won't, mother."

Post by: pageinbooks on November 05, 2011, 12:57:20 PM
Vladi frowned as the other end of the phone disconnected. She shrugged, then put the phone back on the hook, then stretched out on the couch. She soon fell asleep. In her dream, she was in this room, full of shelves. As Vladi looked around, she could hear the faint sound of water in the distance, a long ways off. The shelves closeest to her held these crystals, about the right size to fit comfortably in ones palms. Vladi approached them for a closer look.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on November 05, 2011, 01:11:08 PM
A woman with eight arms dropped down from the ceiling, catching Vladi around the shoulders.

"BOO!" Arachne shouted, and cackled.


(For those who were in the last game, no resets. Arachne's really in this scene for real, I promise!  :-[)

Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 05, 2011, 03:06:47 PM
Vladi jumped, cursed fouly in Russian, and went intangible. She had a distinct dislike of people trying to scare her, and Arachne wasnt exactly her favorite person.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on November 05, 2011, 05:13:11 PM
"There she goes again, the little dreamer," said Arachne. "She's no fun."

"You're not here for to have fun, you wretch!" said someone who came up from the aisle. He looked like a middle-aged human man in an industrial apron and goggles, but was either made of or covered in white chalky sand.

"You're not here to guard the crystals, pig!" Arachne retorted. She folded four forearms primply.

"Away with you, nightmare creature!"

"How convenient. I hear that King Morpheus of the dream realms, summons me, his loyal subject. I'll tell him the golem's fallen into a grump. That means you." She spun a parachute and floated slowly away on the gentle breeze, as the sand-man shook his fist at her and grumbled.

He wiped his sandy brow with a sandy hand, (which didn't help to make anything less sandy,) coughed some chalky smoke, and announced, "All dreamers who have found their way here, please do not touch the crystals. They are memories of non-lucid dreamers. The spots without crystals, are where your own crystals would be if you did not know that this was a dream. Because you kept the memory of the waking life, your crystals are with you, somewhere in your dream-bodies. Other crystals are damaged, or have gone missing-- these are the crystals belonging to people who suffer from an illness that you know of in the waking world.

"These crystalline formations are woven by good King Morpheus, from the waters of the river Mnemosyne. Follow the sound of the water, and it should lead you to him."

Pandora slid onto the bus, and closed her eyes. She waited for five minutes before arriving at her school. She didn't live very far from it. A large line was forming at the entrance door for shots. She went to the back, and whenever somebody offered for her to go before them, she accepted. She wanted to get it over with.   
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 05, 2011, 10:59:08 PM
Vladi heard the sandy guy, and cautiously became normal. "are you the sandman?" she asked, curiously.

Post by: Flight girl on November 06, 2011, 02:00:44 AM

(okay)
Max sat down in her desk in the corner. She paid attention to class for like five min then fell asleep.
She found herself standing in a room full of shelves and on those shelves were boxes. She could faintly hear rushing water in the distance. wow I wonder what this place is. Its so cool in here. max started walking over to the shelves to see what was there.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 06, 2011, 02:37:35 AM
Vladi saw another person in the room whom she assumed was a lucid dreamer. "hello." she said.

Post by: holywalrus2 on November 06, 2011, 03:07:43 AM
Pandora was quickly at the front of the line. Once it came time for her shot, She sat down, rolled up her sleeve and held her arm out to the nurse. She kept a neutral face, but as she was injected she clenched the edge of the sterile and odd-smelling chair she was sitting on. She finished and walked back to class, aware of her tiredness. Maybe I can sleep in class, Pandora thought. It's only social studies.

Pandora sat down at the back of the class. Luckily for her, they never did any work in social studies. She closed her eyes, and within less than five minutes, she was asleep. She woke up in a room filled with shelves. Two other girls, about her age, were there. She could hear rushing, running water, like freshwater rivers flowing over rocks and pebbles. A man, covered (or so it seemed,) in chalky white dust was there. And there was a woman... with eight legs and the likeness of an arachnid. "Sacre bleu!" She shrieked.

Max glanced over "hey look its a french chick!" She looked around the room finally spotting the man and the spider creature "HOLY *beep*"
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: holywalrus2 on November 06, 2011, 03:29:55 AM
Pandora's eyes were fixed upon the creature, carefully watching it. She knew that she might have a panic attack, like she always did around large spiders. Or she just might faint. She felt lightheaded, until she realized that it was just a dream, only a dream.

"Belgian, actually," Pandora said, still continuing to stare and feel sick.

"are you ok?" vladi asked the other girl. She looked to be about to hyperventilate.

Pandora shook her head in response.

"I- I'm fine, just freaked out.... Where are we?" Pandora asked.

"You are in the palace of High King Morpheus of the dream world," said the sandman, with a bow. "Welcome. I'm Pygmalion."

Pandora raised an eyebrow. "Morpheus? Isn't he a minor greek god of dreams?" She asked.

"He is," answered Pygmalion, "But he is High King over his two other brothers. King Phantasos is allied with the High King, but King Phobetor is not. Our war against Phobetor is what has been causing the sleeping sickness in your waking lives, and Morpheus needs your help."

Pandora rubbed her arm where she'd gotten the shot in memory. "Alright. Sounds... Interesting." She tried to sound indifferent, but her eyes glinted with excitement.

"You kids just follow the sound of the water," directed Pygmalion. "I'm going out, to Cliopolis. Don't see much point in working at a time like this, though." He added the last part to himself, but shook his head sadly.

Vladi said nothing, but headed toward the sound of the water.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 07, 2011, 01:01:10 AM
Max nodded,intrigued, she started heading towards the sound of the water listening closely
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 07, 2011, 02:53:56 AM
Vladi kept walking, wondering what the water sound was coming from.

(okay)
Max sighed then had an idea she started running faster and faster until she was almost gliding then kicked off the ground and started flying. She let out a yell of joy as she zipped around
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 07, 2011, 09:55:47 AM
Vladi saw a girl start flying and laughed.

"Wow!" Pandora exclaimed. "Awesome."

Max chuckled "its easy you try"
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: holywalrus2 on November 07, 2011, 11:23:03 PM
Pandora attempted... and she did fly, but not as a human. She had turned into a hawk.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 08, 2011, 01:52:29 AM
Vladi pouted. She couldn't fly, but she could hover a bit. . .
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 08, 2011, 07:25:40 AM
Max spun through the air flying along As if by magic or by invisible wings.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 08, 2011, 07:35:58 AM
Vladi sighed and kept walking.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 08, 2011, 07:37:44 AM
Max giggled and circled back to the others "come on you slow pokes, lets go find where the water is coming from"
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 08, 2011, 07:40:18 AM
Vladi gave an irritable look. "Not all of us can fly." she pointed out.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 08, 2011, 07:44:20 AM
Max's expression fell "sorry" she mumbled
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 08, 2011, 07:46:51 AM
Vladi's expression softened. "Well, its alright."
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 08, 2011, 07:50:07 AM
Max sighed and floated down to the ground
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP

Vladi kept walking briskly.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: holywalrus2 on November 08, 2011, 05:21:36 PM
Pandora turned human again and walked next to Vladi. "What can you do? I'm sure it's way better than flying."   
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 08, 2011, 10:42:24 PM
Vladi smiled, and shook her head. "well, its a matter of opinion." she said, and dissapeared.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 09, 2011, 08:25:32 AM
Max was confused "Where did she go?"
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 10, 2011, 04:27:06 AM
Vladi laughed, which was probably creepy, considering.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 10, 2011, 12:33:05 PM
Max was creeped out
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 10, 2011, 12:36:34 PM
Vladi reappeared in front of max as she was walking.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 10, 2011, 12:42:18 PM
Max jumped "AH!" And shot straight up into the air
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 10, 2011, 12:44:37 PM
Vladi looked apologetic.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 10, 2011, 12:45:10 PM
Max floated back down "sorry"
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 10, 2011, 12:46:13 PM
"no its my fault." vladi said.

Vladi kept walking toward the water.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: holywalrus2 on November 11, 2011, 03:48:19 AM
Pandora was grinning like an idiot from her newfound talent. She wondered what else she could into.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: pageinbooks on November 11, 2011, 03:56:30 AM
Vladi wondered what was making the water noise.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 11, 2011, 07:33:57 AM
Max started walking towards the noise again, it had been getting progressively louder "i think we're almost there"

You all come up to a waterfall, and High King Morpheus who appears to be weaving crystals out of the water. Arachne, a talented weaver, stands at his side looking bored (this is not her kind of weaving.) Damon is with her. (Right, sora22? Where are you!)

Morpheus looks like the eldest man you admire and feel most comfortable around in real life. No matter who it is, whatever race or fashion sense, or even if you only saw this man once in waking life when you were too young to remember, Morpheus appears like him.

On the floor is a very large, rolled-out scroll. It's a map of a valley. The mission is simple: go to the granite mountains in a dream world, and find a gourd-shaped valley filled with clouds and mist.

This is the Nephele Valley. Nightmare creatures have invaded it. They all look like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, if gollum had no eyes and only a mouth the size of his face with two fangs. They like to stab prey with their teeth and drink their blood.

The objective is to rescue the muses who used to live in the Nephele Valley, before the nightmares invaded. The nightmares herded them all into one of the caves.

So, will you blow the mists away and burn the nightmares with light and fire from above? Tunnel into the cave and rescue the muses out from under the nightmares' noses? Something else? Make a plan together. Good luck! :)


By the next post, you will all have reached the Nephele Valley.

Pandora looked around; the whole thing was amazing. She saw the huge spider-woman, but she'd gotten over the shock. She realized who she was. A talented weaver who'd challenged Athena to a weaving contest and won. Athena punished her for winning and her boldness to challenge a god, and turned her into a spider. She would've felt a twinge of sympathy for her, if she hadn't been deathly afraid of spiders.
"You're Arachne," She said, her fists clenched.

Post by: pageinbooks on November 12, 2011, 02:11:42 AM
Vladi looked at the man. He looked like the old guy at the paint shop, and she frowned.
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Miss Lucy on November 13, 2011, 10:09:48 AM
Arachne turned sixteen black marble eyes towards the dreamer who said her name. "You're Pandora. I met a Pandora once. She was always ready for a pity party. Are you the same, or can you fight when you have to?"
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: Flight girl on November 13, 2011, 12:04:19 PM
Max listened intently
Title: Re: Winged Muses RP
Post by: holywalrus2 on November 13, 2011, 07:54:03 PM
Pandora forced a laugh. "You mean the one who released all the evil spirits upon mankind?" She asked, but it was rhetorical. "I can restrain myself when need be. She cannot. As for fighting, I am not sure. I'm sure it shall depend on the opponent." She said. She wasn't sure how she answered so bravely and fluidly to the spider woman, but her answer seemed correct.
