A very Traditional Don't Starve world, you (your characters) have been lured, tricked, trapped or otherwise bought into this world and you wake up together to find Maxwell standing over you. 'Say pal you don't look so good. Maybe you should do something to survive'. Unlike the usual game you can expect a great deal of manipulation and tricks by Maxwell. In this world you are his puppets and he is going to torment you for his own amusements and ends. You can also expect him to drop in on you from time to time, just so you know who is boss. Why? Well wait and see. 

Name:

Age:

Backstory(just a brief as to how you ended up here):

Appearance:

Personality:

Quirk/Gift/Ability (optional): 

 

Rules

1. Be friendly, nice and follow the forum rules

2. No god modding or controlling other characters, this includes Maxwell.

3.Don't expect me to make it easy to survive ^_^ 

Will start once I have... 3 players!

Oooo looks very interesting :D (Tell me if I should tweak anything)

Name: Conner

Age: 22

Backstory(just a brief as to how you ended up here):  Conner was annoyed. Really annoyed. Instead of some new games or maybe something for his dog even! He got a radio. Not only that but an old radio. His parents said they got it from some antique shop. Really he didn't expect his parents to get him anything since he lived so far away but in all honesty he thought he'd prefer nothing. All the channels on it were only static so he just put in on a shelf for decoration. Hurray. He hated his job as he had to run around fixing everything and his co workers who caused the mess were the ones who got the raise! And now his parents wanted to come over with news that they found him a 'pretty girl so let's get you hitched'... Why him? He paced in his living room until his eyes set on that radio. He picked it up and look it over before setting in down again as he felt defeated by this life. "I just wish I could be able to re-do my life... To start at a beginning again," He got his wish in a way he didn't expect.

Appearance: Conner has messy blonde hair that he'd normally not comb. His eyes a bright brown hidden behind square glasses. He wears a black t-shirt that had a thumbs up painted on it in green along with plain grey jeans and sneakers.

Personality: He is normally quiet and reserved to himself.Mostly he just fumes silently if anything gets him angry rather than take action. He can become stressed easily if things don't go right causing him to pace mostly. Sometimes things can fly over his head, way over his head really and won't get the meaning right away. This doesn't pair well with how he says things before he thinks at times.

Quirk/Gift/Ability (optional):

Another Roleplay, always nice to have! Will you be entering your own character LadyD?

Oh, right, a character:

Name: Sylvia Swayson

Age: 132, although she looks 19. Kitsune age funny.

Backstory(just a brief as to how you ended up here): She has absoutley no clue. Then again, she was transformed so she doesn't really know much about anything that day, but she does know that she woke up here, hungry, alone, and (somehow) with clothes.

Appearance: Sylvia has mocha skin, with dark, silky hair that tumbles down to her shoulders. This contrasts with her eyes, which are a peircing grey colour. She's wearing a thick white coat with a fur collar, underneath which is a black zip-up hoodie (with no hood), and underneath that is a tight-fitting black tank-top. She wears a black pair of baggy cargo pants and thigh-high white boots, which are also fur-rimmed at the top. 

Personality: Being a kitsune (see below), she's highly intelligent, but would normally fall on the "never amount to anything" scope of the education system due to her utter lack of caring about it. Constantly joking around, she can either uplift a party, or annoy them to the point of breakdown. As well as this, her animalistic instincts are heightened, especially when shifted (again, see below)

Quirk/Gift/Ability (optional): She's a were-fox, or kitsune. Mischievous creatures, they often are the foils in many a eastern myth, although no-one seriously believed their existence. She can transform at will, however certain factors will involuntarily cause her to shift. This can be controlled by wolfsbane, which she has a small amount of in her coat. 

(Of course she's not a different Cinnie from 'The Pig Wars'. What would make you think that?)

Alright then! OuO

I'll just use my persona cause I didn't have time to make a character 

-----------

image.thumb.jpeg.3e7f54139f9c9516b422361

Appearance: wears a soft, pastel blue sweater, with a big soft cyan collar. Wears black pants. His eyes are blue, and his hair black, with a stripe of white.

Age: early twenties 

Quirk/Gift/Ability: Likes to stargaze (can use his telescope to boost his sanity at night); he's attracted to the supernatural but at the same time he's scared of the unknown, and constantly feels oppressed by the meaningless of his life; has a pocket telescope; sometimes starts daydreaming, has a tendency to alienate from the surroundings and not give attention to things

Backstory: Was born in the countryside in Italy, and his grandfather introduced him to the beauty of the sky and stars. 

Has had passion for astronomy for all his life, and has been traveling around the world to study. In London he had been accepted to a university specialised in astronomy.

[Forgot to write this, so I'm adding it now] After failing exams in the university, Halan decided to retreat in his apartment in Londong. Before going there, he bought a radio, to listen to the news without having to go outside to buy a newspaper.

He was tricked by Maxwell, who offered him forbidden knowledge of the universe, and he got trapped in the Don't Starve world. 

At least there was no light pollution there but... the Stars were different from the ones he knew.

(Alrighty then I suppose I'll give it a shot :D)

Name: Arca

Age: 18

Backstory (just a brief as to how you ended up here): Arca was soaring through the sky as she normally would when travelling from one place to another, when suddenly she collided with a shadow-like object that came from above. This caused her to crash into the ground, knocked unconscious by the impact. She was a soldier in an army above in the clouds, which served the king of the land up high. There was a drastic change in rules, which she didn't accept at all, and started disobeying the leaders of the army in such a fashion that it got her into prison. She managed to escape it by being extremely cautious, and quickly grabbed all her stuff to do something not a single angel in the world had ever done before; descend the clouds to the realm below.

Appearance: 

Spoiler

ARCAa.png.0abbdea0ba5ce6f95859f245a22708

Personality: Loves to tell stories, and is very friendly. She's all about honour in fighting and won't kill without giving her opponent a fair chance. She's also very cautious and won't underestimate her enemies, and finally, she's pretty well mannered.

Quirk/Gift/Ability (optional):
Is very skilled in swordsplay, and has her own sword that has a crystal-like blade which irradiates a blue glow (not enough light to stop Charlie from attacking).
-
She also has a Halo (around her hair, all the other rings are purely aesthetic) which allows her to live normally, without it she has almost no energy for anything and will die if she doesn't have it on for a few hours.
-
She has wings! Since she's an angel, and can fly with them (duh).

LadyD    3,302

Name: Art Libris

Age: 23

Backstory(just a brief as to how you ended up here): Art- as she liked to be known was book obsessed, you name it she probably read it. She loved to read and loves the library, this infinite thirst for knowledge and new reading material lead her to a dark corner of the library and a very dark book. She read aloud wondering at the strange latin and ended up in the Don't Starve world.

Appearance: Long mousy brown hair, bright intelligent hazel eyes. A smattering of freckles and a few extra pounds hidden under a baggy shirt and casual pants. 

Personality: Smart, sometimes annoyingly so. Stubborn and obstinate with no little bit of pride in her intelligence. 

Quirk/Gift/Ability (optional): Can Read just about anything. Which may or may not come in handy.

Maxwell looked at his gathered selection, he had arranged them in a semi circle, their feet pointing towards him. He looked over each face one by one, there was something that looked decidedly like an angel, that was slightly unexpected. He had decided that more was better, the usual one by one effort was not yielding the desired result. Perhaps this odd group could do it, he had doubts though. All of this he would keep to himself, he waited a few moments until they had all regained some semblance of consciousness. Then casually waving his cigar spoke callously,

"Say pal you don't look so good. Maybe you should do something to survive" He smirked at them and then simply vanished.

Just like that, a strange voice could be heard. As it went away, Arca slowly opened her eyes. It didn't take long for her to remember she crashed into the ground, and quickly started checking herself for any wounds. Strangely enough, she was completely fine; there wasn't a scratch. Looking around, this didn't seem like the place she was in before. She didn't look down enough to notice there were four other people lying on the ground in a curious circle. She got up, and stretched her arms and wings. "Umm... right. I should have probably paid more attention whilst soaring..." Arca said.

Conners' head felt like he bashed it against a wall. Then he realized he was on a floor so he guess instead he hit his head on the floor. He heard a voice coming from somewhere and assumed it was the radio as he lifted his hand to feel the back of his head. As his fear that his head was cracked open was dashed away since he felt no blood he slowly opened his eyes. Well this isn't his ceiling, unless someone painted it like a sky. A sky that moved. He shut his eyes again, he'll deal with it after- wait a sky that moved? Jerking up he took in his surroundings. He was not in his house! His parents were suppose to come over, his dog needed to be walked, and- wait how long was he out? He got to his feet stumbling some and began to pace around. Surely this was a dream and he'd just wake up. Or it wasn't a dream and his job was going to fire him.

(non committal much Battal XD) 

Art opened her eyes and there was a tall strange looking gentleman who told her to survive and then he was gone. She was looking up at blue soaring skies dappled with a few clouds. Sitting up with a groan she realized she was not alone, there was someone else already on their feet saying that they should have paid attention, Art rubbed her eyes. For a second she had seen a halo and wings, rubbing her eyes didn't do much to clear this up. Those wings were still there, so was a  disquieting feeling that something was severely amiss. For one thing she was no in the library, she was in a field or grove of some kind. There was tuffs of thick looking grass to her left, some others to her right and a winged person standing there.

"Excuse me, where am I?" Art asked the person who was clearly wearing some sort of costume, there was a boy stumbling to his feet and of the two options the idiot dressed like an angel seemed the more conscious of the two.

"...huh!!" Arca jumped backwards, facing the lady that was talking while spreading her wings to make herself look larger. She attempted to grab her sword, but the holster was empty! The best thing she could do at this point was to play along. She lowered her wings, and said "Greetings, madame. I have not a clue, to answer your question..." while not letting her guard down. She only now noticed the others, but kept a focus on Art, just in case.

(I kinda wanna join. I'd be nice to get out of that gloomy cave. However, I usually use only one character and that's Dragon Mage. I do have other anthro characters but I'm not sure if that will make sense or apply to the story at all).

Edit: duh, I have human version of my OCs.

Sylvia hurt. Normally she was pretty sore after long transformations, but this was something else. She rubbed her head, before realising she was clothed. How was she clothed? Normally she destroyed most of what she was wearing. She pulled out the fabric, still pretty far out. Really stretchy? Made sense she guess. She was vaugley aware of the cigar smoke in the air. Something about "looking good?" She started to... What the...

"Can someone please give me the herb imy pocket?"

Name: Red Squirrel (Red for short)

Age: Unknown but seems to have the maturity of someone in their 20s

Backstory(just a brief as to how you ended up here): (I don't really have one so I'll just put this down) Red was never unhappy and enjoyed his life living with Dragon Mage an his other friends. One day while Dragon Mage was practicing her magic, something went wrong. The rest however is kinda blurry.

Appearance:

Spoiler

red_squirrel_by_dragonmage156-d8i2vqa.jp

Personality: Red is very intelligent but unlike most other smart people, he isn't conceited or likes to brag about it. Red is kind and caring towards friends and like to help out when needed.

Quirk/Gift/Ability (optional): Red is an average red squirrel (they are real, look them up if you don't believe me) that can walk and talk like a human. He has vast knowledge. Since he's a squirrel, he can't fight and rely's on strategy to take down a creature.

(I hope I haven't left anything out. The only problem is we already have quite a lot of intelligent characters. I have alternate characters I can use such as Fluffy the Bunny, Pink Ted the Pink Teddy Bear (male in case you got the wrong idea.) and Otto the Otter. Otto is a daredevil which can lead to a slightly different backstory and interesting quirks. Just saying).

(Added a few things to the character description)

Halan looks around.

he decides to go sleep, pretending this is just a dream

Everything looked different and unusual, and there were some people around him, unknown people, one dressed as an...Angel?

Halan puts a hand on his chin and looks down.

(-X- is for thoughts, "X" is for speech) 

-Well, if this is a dream then it's my best lucid dream so far.-

He pinches his cheek. It's not use.

He looks around again and stops to look at the Angel girl.

Arca made eye contact with the boy that had just woken up. She tried to look friendly to everyone, but she couldn't help but feel a little intrigued. One was asking for a kind of herbs, and it didn't seem like anyone knew where they were or what was going on. She eased her stance a bit and started talking to Halan. "Salutations, sir. Might you know where we are currently?" Arca asks him. While she does this she positions her arms and wings to look a bit more friendly.

Sylvia fumbled in her pocket. She knew she had wolfsbane, she knew it. The question was, could she...

("X" is thoughts) "Well this is gonna be fun... "Oh hey! I'm part of supposedly mythological species that screws people over!"

She coughed a bit, fully aware of the pins and needles that marked a turn. Two more seconds and she would go full kitsune. 

"What's that movie quote about going full retard?"

A moment later, she popped up from the floor. A soft layer of orangey-red fur covered most of her body, and three fox-like tails emerged from her lower back. "This is why I needed..."

"SQUIRREL!"

"Ah! Behind you!!" Arca yells to Halan while looking around on the ground for her sword. It was nowhere to be seen, until she saw a faint blue glow coming from the leaves of a tree. She jumped up and flapped her wings a few times to get up there, grasped her sword from it and pointed it towards the now transforming Sylvia. "What has happened to you...?" she asks, keeping a solid eye on her.
