Pavor Nocturnus|||Official OOC

Post by GamerScribe » Wed May 17, 2017 2:40 am

Interest Check|||Officers on Duty[Coming Soon]|||In Character Roleplay Image By the daylit hours you are considered a regular person. You may attend classes or hold a day job or just bum around on a street corner begging for change. By day you're anyone and anything you choose to make of yourself... but by night things are different. When you sleep you don't dream. Rather than taking part in The Great Show, as your boss calls it, you work behind the scenes.

You are a member of the Traum Police Department. It is your sworn duty to uphold the laws and protect the people of the realm of sleep. Both it's natural citizens; thoughtforms who perform The Great Show, feeding off of human emotion and attempting to guide and preserve humanity in order to ensure their food source... as well as the Visitors who are unwitting stars of The Great Show, humans like yourself who are unaware that what they are seeing isn't just jumbled thoughts, but a literal theater of the mind crafted to entertain, to frighten and to teach.

Most days the job is simple; Patrol Myriad, the city where the Dreams live, and maybe venture into a Visitor's Dream Theater to break up a disturbance or check that everything is up to code.

But lately there have been problems. Usually Nightmares, Mara, are good folk. Solid actors just looking to make themselves stand out a bit from other Dreams. But in recent days people have been talking... word on the street is that a few have gone rogue. These Night Terrors are causing humans to wake up bruised, scratched... hurt. And in Traum Dreams and Mara alike are winding up dead by their hands.

So the big boss has assembled a task force to hunt down these rogues and deal with them.

Welcome to the team.

Pavor Nocturnus is a modern-fantasy collaborative roleplay wherein you will take the role of an officer of the TPD, solving crimes, catching criminals, and facing physical and psychological monstrosities to keep both dreams and people safe in the dreamscape.

While we are presently full up, should we open our doors to future members the CHARACTER SHEET is presented here;

Have a question how does a recruit, comes to the dream world? Like is he going to be presented to Sandman, when he 'awakes' in the dream, or just pop out of existence in the middle of Myriad?


And what kind of personality he as?

'Recruit' means that you are a recent hire who hasn't earned their place yet. It doesn't mean that you have never been here before.

The first time a recruit enters the dream world is the interview; and they do so IN a dream theater; everything is precise, everything is staged. You 'awaken' in your dream and the Chief is there to interview you and due to the nature of the Dream Theater it feels natural and you go along answering the questions and whatnot.

But the first time after that you would likely come to in the Sleepwalker's Respite; a pleasant modern apartment complex about a block away from the station. The Chief bought out the 13th floor several centuries back and any officers who don't have another place to enter the dreamscape do so there. If you've been around for a while you can steer yourself, somewhat, when you enter. Some people buy property, or just linger in a given spot for an excess of time. Attuning themselves to that area so that if they think about it before they fall asleep they can come to there.

When you wake up in the real world and leave the dream world you don't just vanish. Your form shifts, becoming like smoke, and rises to the aether. When you fall asleep again the smoke-like essence reforms as you in your 'spawn point', so to speak.

I think you might be mixing up the Chief and the Sandman by the by; they are two separate individuals.

If you want to know the Sandman's personality you would have to go talk to him IC.

The Chief is a jovial, intelligent and charismatic individual. Typically he is cheery and hard-working, generally holed up in his office all hours of day and night making sure the place stays running. If upset... Well; don't upset him.

The coin of the realm is the Lucre, their value is roughly equivalent to the US dollar; if only because that's the currency I'm most familiar with.

Lots of officers call them Dreambucks.

Starting salary for a member of the Traum Police Department is 24 Lu an hour, with senior officers and higher ranking members earning more.

Huge apologies, Scribe, life went a bit insane there for a bit. I've just started playing catch up but as of next Tuesday I'm away for another two weeks.

So I can either get my CS in and just jump in when I'm back or otherwise give this one a swerve. It's up to you. :smile:

Posted in the IC, was hoping more of you would have done so by now, hence the long pause...

Sammy; get a CS in, jump in when you get back. I've reserved a spot this long and we haven't really taken off yet. Depending on the timing of your return compared to the IC events you'll either just be a bit late to the meeting, or we'll find you a solid in elsewhere.

Okay; good info. Thank you, kindly. Seeing as people were intended to break into teams anyway we can start this back up with just one or two more.

And if I get no feedback by week's end I shall open a spot up for any interested parties.

Looks like I never actually got round to posting a sheet for this and if I had character notes saved somewhere, I can't find them! Definitely still up for getting involved if you'll have me though, Scribe.
