The Hidden Hour

Post by BrookeDi » Thu Jun 07, 2018 4:47 am

The Hidden Hour
AKA: Camp Maika`i
Any questions, please contact me or we have a problem! :>

Camp Maika‘i is a Summer Camp in Maika‘i, Hawai’i designed for high school-aged students with disabilities. Some of the campers, though, are also Midnighters.

Between 12:00 am and 1:00 am, time freezes for an hour creating an extra pocket of time called the Thirteenth Hour. Most people are frozen during this time, but some, the Midnighters, have the world all to themselves. However, they aren’t the only ones who exist in the Thirteenth Hour. There are creatures, Thirteenth Hour Beings (THB), that exist only in the thirteenth hour. They are frightening creatures that most try to avoid. They are not infallible, though.

Those with a disability, mental health disorder, or some other stigma, who are also Midnighters, have abilities during this extra hour. Their abilities in the thirteenth hour usually relate to their disabilities in regular time. Blind people can see the THB, and perhaps they see further away than the average person. Deaf people can hear the THB marching through the streets, and an amputee might have a truly phantom limb at their disposal.


It’s 2014, and you play a Midnighter at Camp Maika‘i. If this is their first time at the camp, they’ve noticed that there are more THB around at the camp then there are wherever they are from; if this is not their first time at camp, they are likely to notice that there are more at the camp then there has been in previous years. Nothing has happened relating to the THB in the history of the camp, but this year, the THB want something.

More about the THB:
For the most part, THB appear as large groups of warriors that march, searching for Midnighters. They are generally silent, and hard to spot. These are not just Other Beings, they are hyper-intelligent, who plan meticulously. They exist in a plane alongside ours, but for an hour every day, our worlds overlap. They believe that Midnighters are the secret for them to escape their plane, and move into ours permanently. During this hour, they also can steal Midnighter and non-Midnighter alike from our plane of existence into theirs.

Some THB can change their physical form, some are serpent-like accompanying the rest, but most are soldiers. They are often trying to lure Midnighters by mimicking the voice of other Midnighters. There are different types of THB that your character could have encountered.

The THB are susceptible to the powers of the Midnighters. A punch from a phantom arm or strengthened limb would do more damage than a blow from a Midnighter with a different kind of ability. Through the powers of the Midnighters, they can be defeated.

Last Name, First Name:Durand, Leontine 'Leo'

Age and DOB (mm/dd/yyyy):17 March/2/1997

Street / City, State / Zip:
514 E 133rd St, Chicago, IL 60827

Picture:Image

Details of Disability: (Please be as detailed as possible. Include medications, aids, etc.) Anorexia Nervosa binge/purge, autism, bipolar depression, severe anxiety, insomnia

150 mg Lexapro, 20mg Abilify, 100mg Trazadone, PRN 10mg Xanax, 20mg buspirone
Allergies: mold allergy, lactose intolerant

Emergency Contact and Relationship to Child: Antoine Durand/ 630-723-2369/ Father - Adele Durand/ 630-192-3489/ Mother

Additional Information: She's been struggling a lot with the eating disorder recently and she's been in a depressive rut these past few weeks... expect a severe manic episode. She's not exactly herself with the medications, we think the addition of buspirone has really put a damper on her personality. She's been sleeping a lot and has been a muted version of her artistic, caring and extremely intelligent self. It's hard to tell though, as the ED and the Bipolar effect that too. Her insomnia has always been bad, but it's been getting worse and she tends to refuse her Trazadone. She has loads of trouble making friends... has trouble connecting with anyone, even therapists. We recently moved from France to Chicago, but she's excellent with english

Parent/Guardian Signature: Adele Druand Antoine Durande
Off Topic
Powers During The Thirteenth Hour: She has the ability to feel what others are feeling and thinking by touch or sight and can manipulate their emotions. She's also extremely brave and talkative.

Powers During The Thirteenth Hour: Laurence’s arms regrow in a ghostly form, dark and shadowy with lines of blue running through them. The arms are partially transparent, and in the centre small sparks of blue can be seen every now and then. These limbs are able to touch the THBs, and any that come into contact with them recoil as if burnt.

Last Name, First Name: Solomon, Matthew

Age and DOB (mm/dd/yyyy): 17, DOB 04/16/1997

Street / City, State / Zip: Creek Drive, Chatanooga, Tenessee

Picture: (I don't really use pictures for RP, so I've provided a detailed description-I hope that's alright!
Matthew is a tad old-looking for his age, though not in the ways of facial hair or height. His expression is almost always serious, as if he's pondering how to fix some complex problem, but coming up short on ideas. His eyes are a dark brown, and due to his blindness, he appears slightly cross-eyed-so he typically wears square tinted classes to avoid drawing attention to them. His hair is light blonde, and slightly wavy, particularly at the nape of his neck.

Details of Disability: (Please be as detailed as possible. Include medications, aids, etc.)Matthew was born blind, and had somewhat limited access to health benefits growing up. He is fluent in braille, which is how he accomplishes schoolwork, and walks with a cane. He likes the idea of a seeing-eye dog, but has no money to afford one.

Allergies: Slight seasonal allergies

Emergency Contact and Relationship to Child:Angela Solomon, mother

Additional Information:Matthew was raised a devout Christian, being from a biblical part of the South, but is troubled due to not agreeing with all of his preacher's teachings. His blindness is simply a part of him, and his biggest pet peeve is people treating him differently because of it, particularly people who treat him as fragile. He also has a little sister, Dinah, whom he adores.

Parent/Guardian Signature: Angela Solomon, written in neat, cursive print.
Off Topic
Powers During The Thirteenth Hour:Matthew doesn't regain his sight, but his sense of direction is very much heightened during this period of time. His eyes will occasionally burn a bright gold for a few moments, and create almost a 'deer in the headlights' effect to the THBs-however, he must be looking at them in order for this to work, so it would be best if he was physically turned and pointed in the right direction. This abilities comes seemingly at random, and lasts in short, three-second bursts up to a minute or so, at which point Matthew will start developing a migraine.

Last Name, First Name: Victor Blaine


Age and DOB (mm/dd/yyyy): 16 years old (06/13/1998)

Street / City, State / Zip:
Brick St./ New York/ 231-781

Picture:https://ibb.co/bJqmzo

Details of Disability: (Please be as detailed as possible. Include medications, aids, etc.)
Victor suffers from narcolepsy. He's been diagnosed with it when he was 4 years old. He may fall asleep at any point of the day, so he needs to be observed very often, especially during physical activities. His medications are to be taken reactively and only when he falls asleep more than three times during daily activities- then and only then he needs to be given two tablets of Xyrem.

Allergies: Slight allergic reaction to animal fur, it doesn’t require any medication but we've packed him a bit of Claritine, just in case.

Emergency Contact and Relationship to Child:
Ellen Blaine, mother,
166-321-982

Additional Information: Victor has a very hard time socialising with his peers due to his condition- he’s very often not ‘there’ and is very easily distracted. It would be our sincere request to encourage him to seek contact with others. Victor is also very often woken up around 1 A.M. For some reason that’s when he most often experiences nightmares. If that happens, please do your best to calm him down (he’s always shaken after such episodes) and leave the light on when he falls back asleep.

Parent/Guardian Signature:
Ellen Beatrice Blaine
Off Topic
Powers During The Thirteenth Hour:
Victor falls into a trance for the duration of the 13th hour, during which he manifests a spectral avatar he controls. The avatar has enhanced senses and while its skin is a lot more durable than Victor’s original body, any injuries sustained by the avatar appear on the original body as well, and vice versa. During the trance Victor is not able to control his original body. The avatar has a couple more functions but Victor hasn’t discovered them yet.

Good morning (or whatever appropriate time of day it is for you)!

I wanted to apologize for the delay. Some personal stuff came up for my co-gm, and it was unexpected. She won't have a computer until the 17th, so I think we will be getting started then. I hope you're all still interested, but if not I completely understand. Thanks for your patience!
