The Consumption (Game)

Wed Oct 15, 2014, 4:45 AM
A quiet calm settled over the academy. It had been years since any truly dangerous event had occurred -- the tournament notwithstanding, but the victims had signed themselves up, so no one pitied them.

But things would be different this year.

A strange sickness has been passing through the academy, one unlike those seen in the past. In the daytime, everyone appears normal... but in the night, that's when disaster unfolds. Those who have been affected by the virus become zombiesque monsters -- the extent of which is determined by how sick they are -- and attack other students to bite and transmit the sickness.

They call it the Consumption.

:bulletred: :bulletred: :bulletred:

Consumption Game Rules

:bulletred: A number of students have been selected as carrying the sickness. If you roleplay with them, your character will start carrying it also. Report anyone your sick character roleplays with so they can be recorded as being sick also!

:bulletred: When a student starts carrying the sickness, they will earn a black bullet next to their name in the game roster below. They can then start biting people and transmitting the illness.

:bulletred: To BITE a student and increase their sickness level, draw or write about the character getting bitten by yours in the night.

:bulletred: To HEAL a student and decrease their sickness level, draw or write about the character getting treated in the daytime. Using medicine or a potion would be useful, yes?

:bulletred: If a student reaches five bullets, they cannot be normal in the daytime, they're a monster all the time and biting people during daylight hours also!

:bulletred: You can bite a teacher and get them involved too.

:bulletred: :bulletred: :bulletred:

Consumption Levels

:bulletblack: - Character is carrying the sickness, but does not transform at night. They might impulsively bite others if some emotion overcomes them. Or if they hate you.

:bulletblack::bulletblack: - Character will attempt to bite others at night, but looks relatively normal--maybe some bags under the eyes or a slightly pale skin tone. Might be somewhat deranged at night, but can be reasoned with. The bite is relatively normal.

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack: - Character looks a bit more ragged and loses their tone for a pale white during the day. At night, they have sharper teeth and claws, and their eyes glow. They are impulsive but can somewhat control themselves. The bite is deep, and they might rip a chunk of flesh away in the process.

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack: - The transformation has begun. At night, this student is becoming monstrous (how that looks is up to you). Maybe those closest to them can reason with them. Their thirst for flesh hungers. A bite might mutilate a victim.

:bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack::bulletblack: - There is no going back. A cure needs to be found and administered. This student is now a monster and knows no pity or love. They will attack anything indiscriminately. They will also be trying to eat the people they hunt down, so they might not be so easy to survive...

Consumption Records

It starts here... the original "patient zeros". Where did it come from? Who knows... someone suspects it came from the medical tents in the Tournament... but you better watch out because things are going to get bloody very soon.

Get biting and start causing chaos!
Or... try healing people... but no one cares to do that, right?

All submissions should go to Sanctioned Events. This means you'll earn 1.5x EXP for participating in this game! It'll end on November 1, when a vaccine will come out and heal everyone. Though mental scars never really go away, do they...?

Quick FAQ

Please read the Group Rules and FAQ for more information.

:bulletred: How do I join the group? :bulletred:
Fill out the application and submit it to the Students folder. If the application is accepted, you will be sent an invite.

:bulletred: Do you have to be an artist to join? :bulletred:
No - you can ask someone else to make your application picture (or commission it). Other submissions can be roleplays or stories.

:bulletred: What are the activity requirements of the group? :bulletred:
One deviation (roleplay, story, art) per three months. You don't have to pass your classes but your student might be sad... granted, it's not hard to pass a class if you turn in a quick picture, short roleplay, or short story twice in three months.

:bulletred: When is the chatroom usually active? :bulletred:
6:00 PM - 11:00 PM CST is usually when we have the most people.

:bulletred: How many classes do I have to register for? :bulletred:
Minimum one, maximum three.

:bulletred: What creatures can I use for my student? :bulletred:
Anything supernatural or paranormal - but ensure the character isn't too strong as a beginner.

:bulletred: What submissions do you accept? :bulletred:
Pretty much anything - we accept logged roleplays, short stories/long stories, artwork (traditional or digital), plushies or other traditional work of your characters -- as long as it's related to your OW character or another OW character, or the recognizable setting.

:bulletred: What is EXP used for? :bulletred:
It is most useful in tournaments, but as a general rule, EXP gauges how strong a character is in comparison to his/her/hir peers.

hello <": I'm super sorry to say I'll be leaving this group. I just don't have time for alot of my groups.
Bye, and I hope your group continues doing well!

I'm sorry, but I am going to leave this group. I don't have time to do it anymore. Goodbye.

This was a really hard decision for me, but I think it's the best for me.

I have a quick question. 
This group is mentioning "students" often. I was wondering what a "student" is, how a person is supposed to submit in a "student", and practically how this whole thing works?

Check out the frequently asked questions of our group! That journal page also includes a link to more information about RP groups, so you should check it out. :D

If anyone is interested in some quick RP with my character Gorduelle send me a note, even if it's just an introduction or a passing of a characters in the hall way consisting of about 2 to 6 posts.
Yekrutslover Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
:iconlazeplz: This is an open offer? I would love to RP with Gorduelle, he is probably the best-suited character for this environment, to be honest.

I'll send you a starter, hopefully that's good? And if not, I can fix up something shorter, or we can do something with my OC Theon instead of Brünhilde but I hope you don't mind!
BigMeatyPaws Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Will there be more tournaments in the future?
viralremix Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014

KeplerNova Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
How frequently do they occur, anyway?
