[MV] Something's in the dark...

Something's in the dark...

What's This?

January is here! It's the coldest - and sometimes the darkest - time of the year. Normally, this is the time to bunker up with friends and family and indulge in food by a warm fireside, enjoying the happiness of pack life. This January in Mistfell Vale, however, there's something strange in the dark that isn't supposed to be there...

How Will This Work?

This is an episodic plot - that means that as the month goes on, more and more about it will be revealed in this thread... so keep an eye on it! ;)

All we know now is that there is something strange and mysterious lurking in the pack's territory, and along with it comes some mysterious events that can't be explained... Mistwalkers might experience:

  • A tall, dark figure. There is a tall, shadowy, vaguely Luperci-shaped figure that can be seen around the woods at night, sometimes with a cloak, and sometimes with what seem to be antlers... but before you can get too close, it vanishes.
  • The smell and sight of rotten flesh. Occasionally, one can smell a disgusting, sickly sweet smell of rotten flesh and viscera. If you are unlucky, you might catch a glimpse of it out of the corner of your eye.
  • Strange whispers. In a lilted, unearthly voice, one may hear whispers and whines, nonsensical, crazed.
  • Hunger. Mistwalkers may experience a "sense" of severe hunger that vanishes quickly after leaving the immediate area.
  • Cold. Even when inside, Mistwalkers may experience sudden chills that have nothing to do with the weather...

Feel free to have your character reference or experience any of these occurrences in threads around the pack and theorize about what is going on. There might be a prize for whoever participates in the most plot threads at the end of the plot!

Timeline

This is the timeline for the plot - but not all of the events have happened yet! This timeline will be updated with plot-important threads and interesting plot-related threads that crop up around Mistfell Vale.

  1. 01/07/19: Felix and Evelyn spot something strange in the woods, and experience some unusual phenomena.
  2. 01/13/19: Sedona sees, smells, and hears frightening things while in the stables.

A Frightening Development

By now, many of the pack have seen some manner of illusion, whether by smell, sight, or sound... mutterings are starting to spread, although they've not yet been stoked to a full panic. That may be liable to change in the upcoming days, however...

What's Happening?

Two characters in the next few days will experience a sudden change for up to half an hour - they'll lose control of their own bodies entirely and do and say things that are entirely unlike them. These actions might be small yet strange - like muttering about being hungry, or staring at packmates unnervingly - or they may be more unsettling, like trying to attack a packmate, or babbling nonsense in the middle of town.

It's up to the players of each character to decide what their character does under the influence of this mysterious presence. Each thread will need to be AW+, and will be stickied in the Mistfell Vale forum. These threads are first come first serve!

If you'd like your character to become possessed, please reply to this thread with your character's name and which date you'd like. It will be then your responsibility to start the thread - remember to make it AW+! :) Upon signing up, you'll be PMed with more information; this possession may leave your character with some more insight about what's going on in the Vale...

I'd like to claim Zuri to be the one possessed on the 20th. Can actually work with some of the stuff I have started for the spook event.
