    You were probably your average Joe.

    You worked at the corner store, gained meager pay, got home, ate, played videogames, slept, woke up, got dressed, ate, went to work, rinsed and repeated. You had the average life, your girlfriend was nice, your parents didn’t really bother you, that stuff. It was all just pretty damn sweet until you opened that email.

    Or maybe you were a teen.

    You got up, groaned about how much your parents sucked (how ungrateful!), brushed your teeth, took a shower, got dressed, ate, opened doors (and if you were feisty, you slammed it pretty damn hard), went to school, groaned about school, went home, ate, played videogames, played more videogames, then went to sleep. You were a freaking monster. Till you opened that email.

    It doesn’t matter who the hell you were, your life was changed.

    It was an email encrypted with the file DEADMAN.exe. Maybe you thought it was a virus as it first popped up on your screen. It said, DEADMAN PROGRAM INITIALIZING. You think. Maybe you were in shock. But when you blacked out, your last thoughts were probably, What. The. Hell. You woke up on a boat next. Next to thirteen other cots (that makes fourteen, for your information), in your regular clothes. It’s a luxury liner, and in fact it is still in use today, but the name is changed and it has been modified beyond recognition. So that, you know, you don’t try to blow it up for some reason. At first, it seems like, oh cool, a cruise, for ME! Or maybe you’re paranoid that there’s something wrong, you didn’t sign up for this. It’s not till you notice it’s not moving that you hear an announcement on the PA system. An announcement you’ll remember for the rest of your life... of course, if you’re not dead already.

    “Hello there! I can’t tell you my full name, but welcome. Call me the Organizer. Or the Doctor. Or That Bastard In Control. Hahahahahahahahaha! That was supposed to be funny. Well, anyway, you probably think you deserve an explanation, right? Well, you don’t, but I’ll give you one anyways, since I’m a nice guy. And a nice-looking guy to boot, haha!” This voice is sadistic and nearly childish, but it’s obvious he’s an adult. His laughs, though, are reminiscent of the laughs of a mad scientist.

    “You guys are my new lab rats. Well, at least, you were. And you still are, in a way! But not really, haha! You’re now going to participate in what I call the Game of Death! It’s a really fun game, trust me! Just get a cut on your thumb or leg or arm or something, and I’ll explain more! Go on! Get some blood out! Gogogogogo!”

    Somehow, you manage to get a wound of some sort. With blood. It might be on your hands or on your arms, although you could possibly have it in other places.

    “Well, now, I think I have to explain what’s going on, since you don’t know.” A gruffer, less sadistic voice appears. It doesn’t scream drill sergeant, but it is certainly deep. This is obviously someone else. “I’m not afraid of giving my name. My name is Adam. Simple, simple Adam. As far as you’re concerned, I’m the brawn of this operation. Because if you don’t listen to us, well, simply enough, me or my men will kill you. And,” he adds with a chuckle, “I think I will have a lot of fun doing it too. But hell, lemme explain to you what happened. You have powers. Not stupid, cliche, Superman powers. But they’re all different.” He snickers this time. “Baseline is, you can control your blood, in different ways. There will be a sheet near where you woke up that explains in detail. This is called Branch of Sin. But be careful, because you don’t have an endless supply of blood. Don’t worry though, we’re going to have a lot of fun! All you have to do is perform certain tasks. But before I explain more, your first task will be given in a few hours. We have to... make some arrangements. Have fun till then... while it lasts.” A laugh punctuates the speech before it is signed off with the eerie sound of a “Bzzt!”

    You have a few options. If you return to your cot, there will be a small bookbag under it with some of your essentials, a few changes of clothes (including a swimsuit, or alternatively swimming trunks) and something special to you. On top of it, there’s a report of what they injected into you, whomever “they” are. It includes blood type, what it does, etc. There is no one left on the boat besides you twelve. There’s a pool on deck, and there’s also a buffet with freshly cooked food and beverages- strangely, the kitchen crew is nowhere to be found. For accuracy, you have three hours and thirty minutes [IC] to do what you want, which includes meeting up with the other eleven. If not, you can play around with your new Branch of Sin. It is suggested you do everything in this order. Although you can if you want, I don’t suggest you eat the food later into these hours. If you look out into the horizon, you can’t tell if you’re really close to land or if you’re far. It might scare those faint of heart.

    Misc. Storyline/Setting

    This takes place in the present day, beginning on June 30th (IC). In addition, the device on which you downloaded DEADMAN.exe, for storyline purposes, was portable. The program can be downloaded on any device with a screen and color filters.


    For those of you who need references for your stuff, here you go. It’ll be updated whenever I feel like it, which means whenever I deem something necessary to put in. You can request for me to put stuff in here too.

    Deadman- A person in the Game of Death with Branch of Sin.

    Branch of Sin- a strange power, or virus or something, that was injected into you during your sleep. You have no idea how you got it, but you can control blood in different ways.

    BP- OOC. Means Blood Points, which is the amount of energy you have. The more blood points, the more you can use your Branch of Sin. Your BP is determined by your weight plus a number from one through thirty RNG’d, divided by 3.

    RNG- OOC. Random Number Generator. I might use it often.

    Possible Powers

    Just some suggestions. Obviously, you can make your own as there isn't enough for all the slots, as long as you explain it and it isn't OP.

    Projectile- Simply what it sounds like. A ball of blood of varying sizes not exceeding a foot. Usually launched at enemies, or you can just ram at them with it in your hand. Your hand is usually the vessel used to shoot said ball. It’s not always spherical; it can also more oval, but usually retains a round shape. BP depends on the size of the projectile launched and the force it was sent with. (2+ BP each)

    Talon- Usually blood from the side-arms. It solidifies into a shape similar to a talon. Used mostly for close combat. Usually great for opening wounds and slicing enemies, and can block. A bit heavy though. BP depends on size only. (15+ BP per talon)

    Whip- A whip used to do what it implies. Can come out of nearly anywhere, although it is designed to come from the earlobes, strangely. BP depends on size and speed. (10+ BP each whip) Liquid, but is extremely fast.

    Claw- Coming from the knuckles, it turns into sharp, curved blades like claws, created for the purpose of slicing opponents in half. Their size varies, but the larger the more BP. (4+ BP)

    Blade- A large blade created from blood. It’s something you would really prefer to avoid, as it has varying shapes and sizes along with a sharp edge. It’s solid, but doesn’t require constant blood flow. The larger, the more BP. (30+ BP each) It comes out of your body as it's own object, so it's very versatile.

    Eye- A bomb. No, I’m dead serious. It comes out of anywhere really, and floats in the air, detonating at will by making blood fly all over and pierce through enemies. Extremely dense, so each one takes a lot of blood. The more effective, the more BP. (10+ each)


    1. Follow all forum rules.
    2. Don’t disrespect the GM or your fellow RPers.
    3. DON’T disrespect the GM or your fellow RPers.
    4. No god-modding. If you’re not sure if it’s god-modding, ask me. No Deus ex Machina either out of a fight unless it’s not really a serious fight, I say so, or you need to catch up.
    5. No bunnying without permission.
    6. If you drop out (please don’t!), give someone control over you, or make one last post where you disappear or die or something in the IC.
    7. Keep IC, IC and OOC, OOC. You are not to put any posts for either in the opposite one except for your sample post or, in the case of OOC in IC, within parentheses at the beginning or end.
    8. If you’re going to joint post, inform me beforehand and the rest of the OOC. I don’t want it to end up seeming like bunnying.
    9. You can create NPCs and kill them at will. You can also play a second, minor part, but it cannot be a Deadman nor can they become a major character without an SU.
    10. If you read this- the password- inform me that you ate pie somewhere in your SU. Preferably at the end.
    11. Don’t kill other players unless I say so, unless you’re in the OOC. Then you can kill everyone you want.
    12. Look at the original post frequently. This is more of a tip, but I’ll update parts of it often.
    13. No health class. Kissing, yes. Make-out scene, you’re pushing it. Health class... no.
    14. If you’re here and expect no blood this isn’t for you. I mean, it revolves around blood. Just bear in mind that some of us have less of an affinity for intestines than some of you do.
    15. I expect a decent length for each post. A paragraph at the least, which in my mind is at least five lines.
    16. I am all-seeing, but if I miss something amiss for some reason don’t hesitate to PM me about it.
    17. Reservations last a week, but if the spots fill up and there’s a really really really deserving SU and only your reservation is in the way, you can potentially lose it.
    18. You don’t have to be extremely active, but at least once a week if we’re in a stale period. And if you’re going to disappear and you KNOW it, tell us beforehand.
    19. I recommend that you guys get to know each other well. Just a tip, you’ll be together for a while.
    20. Lastly, don’t be afraid to ask questions. In this post I may seem a bit formal, but I’m not that bad. I hope.
