I Might Make a Story, and I need some Characters!

Discussion in 'Creative Discussion' started by ManyAchievables, Nov 9, 2019.

  1. So, I'm thinking about making a story (shocking, I know), and it's going to be a slasher-like story. I need some characters for the killer(s) to kill, and some small ideas for what the characters can do before they are all gonna die. Oh yeah, the characters you make are going to die, except for one that I shall choose at random to be the sole survivor of the story. This could go well (have a character fit for the role to be the survivor) or it could go horribly (the least competent one survives).

    The story is that over 300 years ago, a rich guy at a nice mansion hanged himself. The place has been abandoned since then. Your characters will throw a graduation party, though most of you will not survive. One person is exploring the mansion, and finds a book that tells them what the heck is going on. This'll help later on when they need to take down the "big bad" of the story.

    Some rules:
    1) No gross things in your character bio (18+), I know this is a slasher story, and that is a bit of a convention of the sub-genre, but not here, please.
    2) Make your character plausible in the present human world. Don't give him/her a bionic pair of laser goggles. This isn't Jason X or Leprechaun 4: In Space.
    3) All other Pokecharms rules apply.

    Character Bio:
    Nickname (Optional):
    Age (Teenager):
    Physical Appearance:

    I guess that's all I have to say! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I really hope I can find time to start writing after I get all the characters I need. I'd like to have around 8, and I will list the characters you have submitted down here.

    Teenagers ( 7/8 ) :
    -Kaya Reile (17 years old)
    -Evan Waller (17 years old)
    -Bellamy "Wrench" Blake (18 years old)
    -Nick "Crash" MacQuoid (15 years old)
    -Stella King (18 years old)
    -Alex "Lock" Cage (15 years old)
    -Ikehara Yoshisuki (17 years old)

  2. Name: Kaya Reile
    Nickname (Optional): Kai
    Age (Teenager): 17
    Physical Appearance: Red hair and green eyes with a slim stature and caucasian descent.
    Outfit: A black top with a white graphic on the front along with torn white denim jeans.
    Personality: She's your typical rebellious teenager, although she does have some more grounded facets. Beneath her "alpha girl" facade, she is lonely and anxious.
  3. @EeviumZ Accepted! She sounds like an interesting character.

  4. Name: Evan Waller

    Age: 17

    Appearance: Evan is tall and skinny, with slightly tanned skin, hazel eyes and dark hair. He wears a v-neck t-shirt, jeans, and tennishoes.

    Personality: Evan is somewhat introverted, but is a good friend if you can find a subject you both enjoy. He loves ghost stories and has done some investigating himself, although he’s had no luck.

  5. @RenzFlintrock Accepted! I feel like he might be either the survivor or one of the last few, but only possibly.

  6. Thanks! He’s a character I originally designed for Gravity Falls/Legend Quest type stuff. He loves reading the legends, but he’s never actually encountered one. Not for lack of trying, if course, just hasn’t had any luck.

    Hey Achievables, if I enter in a character for you, will you accept it if they are 15?
  10. Go for it! Just keep to the rest of the rules and it'll be fine.

  12. @Kasumi Daiyamondo Accepted! I wonder how he'd interact with some of the other characters.

    I think he might be the one who that has to reason with everyone...But who knows.

  14. Let's be honest, Kaya's going to be the one that finds the killer and immediately dies.
  15. Well, I was gonna make it more like Alone In The Dark rather than something like Friday The 13th. It isn't going to be the same guy that kills everyone, with maybe one or two deaths from something else, there's going to be multiple monsters and spooky things.

  16. Ah, that makes sense.

  17. Sounds perfect for Evan... by the way, I found his original profile today. He had a completely different name lol.

    Also! @PlayfulFox47 ! You might like this, I don’t know.

    Name: Stella King
    Nickname (Optional): N/A
    Age (Teenager): 18
    Physical Appearance: Dark brown hair in a ponytail, green eyes, slender face with sharp features. Stands at 4'9.
    Outfit: A tee from one of her many fandoms, blue jeans, and grey sneakers. She also has a pair of gray rimmed glasses.
    Personality: She is that quiet bookworm that you know. She tries to stay out of trouble and is reluctant to do anything risky. She's a huge nerd and is commonly found waiting in a long line for a book, game, or DnD release. She is also highly intelligent.
  19. Playful, do you think Evan and Stella could have been in the same D&D campaign?
  20. I honestly could see Kaya being an avid DnD player when she's not putting up her facade. Truly, she's not the person she shows to the world - she actually hates being the "alpha girl", and underneath she's really soft-spoken.
  21. Yay! They can have a D&D club!! (Assuming they would all be willing to join. Evan can DM.)
  22. @PlayfulFox47 Accepted! Also, this whole D&D club idea sounds cool! I'll try incorporating that into one of the chapters of the story.

  23. (Imagines the group rolling to see who goes to investigate the creepy sounds)

    Yeah, this could be pretty fun...
  24. Alright, well, I guess 5 people will do for the story. I'll start writing it probably next week on Friday or something, since that's when term break starts for me.

  26. @Mihoko-chan I'm currently low on characters, so I would like if you could give me a character.

    Nickname: Lock
    Age: 15
    Physical Appearance: His hair is pretty much a white-blonde colour and his eyes are bright green.

    Personality: Alex is short-tempered and impulsive, and can be prone to making mistakes when he becomes agitated.

  29. @Mihoko-chan Accepted! I feel like he'd make a great dynamic with Nick and Evan.
  30. Thank you! So....have you already made the story or are you waiting for more characters?

  31. I plan on beginning writing this Friday, as by then I will have 2 weeks of free time to work out the plotline and some of the deaths and all the other stuff.

  32. I just realized how much Evan will both love this and also be dying of fright. I’m not sure if I ever mentioned this, but he’s mostly used to tales of friendly or spoopy ghosts, and doesn’t know about many, if any, dangerous ones.

  37. Hey, so I kinda ignored this for a really long time... sorry about that. I'm going to try to get the first part done soon, but I would like some suggestions for the title of the story.

  38. Hmm.... ‘Graduation... from life!?’
  39. Whatever you decide to name it, I really look forward to reading it!! Would you mind tagging me when it comes out? I meant to ask earlier, but I guess I forgot.

  40. I'll most likely just post a link to it in this thread when I finish and release it.
