get that murderboner on


THE MURDERGAME MEME


    It's practically everywhere, so you should know the drill by now: take a few characters, put them in a brand new setting, whether it be a city, a prison, a school, you name it, and then suddenly get told that there's only one way to escape, and that's by one thing alone: murder.

    Because you know, that's definitely a good idea, right?

    But it's not that simple, of course. Each time a murder happens, there's going to be an investigation, and then a trial. Naturally, more often than not, you have to find the culprit or else. However, there are some games where the culprit can get off scot free... but that's only for you to figure out.






    MURDERGAME TYPE:
      1. Investigative. This type of murdergame relies on having specific culprits per trial, each one handpicked as a culprit or victim.
      2. Mafia. Specific characters are chosen to be either a group of killers or a single killer from the very beginning. Other roles may also be given to other characters, such as Doctor, Gunsmith, etc.


    SETTING:
      1. School. The type of setting that you would see in Dangan Ronpa, your mastermind has kidnapped you and forced you to go to school! You may or may not have some special "titles" to go along with it. Sure, you might be trapped, but at least it's a nice place to stay.
      2. Island. Have you seen Survivor? Basically, you're trapped on an island meant to survive; of course, the essentials may or may not be given to you, depending.
      3. Prison. No wonder you're in a murder game! You've done something really, really bad, haven't you? The rooms in this setting will most likely not be as comfortable, but hey, it's better than having to sleep on the cold hard ground.
      4. City. You're trapped in a rather spacious city where some rather strange happenings are going on. You somehow can't leave, but at least there's a lot of buildings to go and visit and you can actually see the sky! Too bad murder is still a thing.
      5. Wildcard. Hit me with your best shot, I'm sure there's some setting out there that can make for a good murder grounds.


    PROMPTS:
      1. Welcome to Hell, Enjoy Your Stay! You've only just woken up, so you don't exactly know what's the situation. But you don't seem to be alone; there are others who are with you; maybe they might know the answers?
      2. So How About that Murder? You've just been told by your Mysterious Mastermind that "hey, you've got to kill to survive" and that... can't possibly be right, can it? Can it?
      3. MOOOOOOTIVE! It's been quite some time and your mastermind is pretty much sick and tired of all of this fluffy and sweetness to the point that they've put their hands down and decided that they've got to do something about it. But what's it going to be this week?
      4. So Do You Want To Be A Mole? Probably not, but it seems that whoever is overseeing your game thinks that you'd be great to be the game's spy.
      5. Roles, Roles, Roles! Specific to the Mafia set up, sometimes you're given a specific role. Maybe you can pass out weapons or guns to people. Or perhaps you can speak to the dead. Maybe you can block someone from killing for the evening. Whatever it is, you're special. Just make sure not to get killed. (For ideas on roles, feel free to utilize this list here!)
      6. So you're Mafia now, eh? You are one of the elite. The ones chosen to vote for who dies each week. Whether it's by choice or by chance, you've got a dirty job to do and you have to do it... or else. But hey, at least you're not alone! You've got some buddies to help you do the work with you.
      7. What's that? Somehow, somewhere, you've managed to find some sort of machine that takes a special kind of coin and pops out some sort of item? Who knows.
      8. Free Time Events Throughout the week, you're free to do as you please, so what are you going to do, even with the threat of murder hanging over your heads? Might as well get to know your fellow captives, right?
      9. Kill or Be Killed Whether you're mafia or just a solo killer, it's time to start your murder on! There's plenty of ways to do it. So how's it gonna be done this time?
      10. IT'S INVESTIGATION TIME! Ding dong bing bong, a body has been discovered! Whether or not you'll actually find any clues, however, to who did it might be a bit of a toughie.
      11. Let's figure this out The trial starts and everyone's eyes are on everyone else. Whether you're given a list of suspects or not, there's a killer to catch! But will you catch the right one? Or scapegoat someone else entirely innocent?
      12. I remember...! In some murder games, memories are key. Every Sunday, you remember something from your past that you've somehow forgotten. But why was it lost in the first place? And why are you remembering it now, all of a sudden? It is a mystery, truly.
      13. And the mastermind is-? Is it truly someone outside of the group? Or perhaps it was one of your friends after all? It's time to finally finish this, solve all the mysteries, defeat the evil twisted things, maybe get the Golden End and go home.
      14. WILDCARD Anything else that I'm missing? JUST JAM AND PLAY IT OUT!

( I am completely interested in playing out Ran as an unwilling mafia member, her reacting to a very heavy motive or memories, but I can work with other things, too. )

[ This madness has been going on for closer to two months than not, now, and slightly over half of the people who were originally here alongside them are dead now. Either having been murdered, or having been executed for failing to fool them with their murder. The whole facility has started to feel underpopulated, arguably even lonely. Those that are left, well. There's a certain inevitability to the idea that one of them might kill one of the others, so it can't be said that there's complete trust, but it certainly can be said that there's a bond of necessity.

Even with all the losses and all the motives so far.

There's been some hope - discoveries they've made which might point towards the mastermind, little things which implied that they might bring back the dead. At one of their get togethers last week someone even whipped out a ouija board to confirm they are around in some capacity. Basically everyone has someone they knew and liked (probably several, honestly) on the other side by now.

It's really for this reason that the motive this week is so insidious, it's using that limited hope against the survivors. Namely, the mastermind has promised that they do in fact know the dead are still around. But they're going to erase them out of existence if there isn't a murder this week.

... Like with basically every motive, Kiritsugu's face is impassive. No surprise there, really. However, he does do one of his tell-tale signs of when something's bothered him particularly much - reaches into his pocket for cigarettes which aren't there, stops short, and then goes back to impassive. ... Some one will kill this week, that's a certainty now. Even with what they've unearthed, there's probably not enough time.

A very distant man ( to say the least ) the assassin's not really been one for comforting people. But he does scan the room for reactions and lingers for if anyone did want to talk to him or is reacting particularly poorly. ]

[ Ran was not only the daughter of a private detective, she was in love with one as well, which meant that she should have been used to seeing bodies drop, bleeding and dry. But this supposed "game", as they called it - a disgusting term that made her feel sick to her stomach - was a lot worse than being followed around by a god of death, a shinigami.

But in spite of that, Ran had decided to form bonds, to make the attempt to trust even if things looked grim.

She held hope in her chest, knowing that there couldn't be anything worse. But then the motive was thrown in their faces, not only confirming the idea that the dead still existed in some shape or form. The motive itself makes her turn almost pale, it's nothing in comparison to the breakdown she had for previous motives - especially the one where they spoke about killing other captives, people that didn't deserve it even more than she did - but it's still horrible.

Even though she was strong and even helped out a lot in the investigations and trials, this is still something that causes her to freeze up, aqua eyes widening in shock— ]


They can't...

[ Lips quiver, almost as if she's trying so damn hard to convince herself that nothing's going to happen. That everything's going to be fine. But it's only when the tears start, a sign that she can't stop them even if she wants to.

She hates it, she hates it so much, and yet she can't stop herself from shaking. ]


Haven't they already had enough?

[ this whole first day of confusion, twenty or so strangers all meeting under the morbid circumstances of being in this... well, it fancies itself something else, but it's basically a bunker, as far as Kiritsugu can tell is finally over. The interminable silence. leaving them unknown, is finally over. Thus far, the man hadn't really spoken with anyone, instead, tapping on the walls the whole time for structural weaknesses (none, of course) and testing to see if his accel worked (it didn't) or if he could find any weapons (he could, but nothing preferable thus far).

Well, and studying the profiles.

For that reason, he does know the name of the girl who happens to be standing next to him then they call got called to the central room from the PA system to hear the showy presentation of the mastermind. Once the initial surprise - the parameters of the game - are revealed, Kiritsugu allows himself simply listen to it on auto-pilot. More of his senses are better spent studying the reactions of the others. Dull, but piercing eyes dig into everyone in the room to gauge their reactions - obviously starting with the girl next to him.

Kushida, right? ]

Um...

[ She can feel the eyes on her, and it's getting a little uncomfortable. While her profile doesn't seem to be rather straightforward - she's sixteen, a student, and likes making friends, there's just something about her that seems a little off, as if there were something missing.

The reaction that she had when the initial announcement happened was one full of tears, fear, hands held closely to her chest. Her legs were shaky and she felt as if she could barely breathe, much less speak.

But she soon tried to pull herself together, enough so that she could insist that they not take a part of this so-called 'game' of theirs. ]


You're Emiya-san, aren't you? Emiya Kiritsugu-san. Did you want to talk about the situation? I think we should be working together to get ourselves out of here, so...

[ The motive this week dealt with secrets. Of course, Kikyou already knew what hers was, so there was no need to look at the envelope; instead she just beams at Naoto as she tears the envelope into several shreds until it drops onto the floor and she places her fingertips together, looking as if she did nothing wrong.

And in her eyes, she didn't. ]


We don't need to look at these, right, Shirogane-san? After all, we shouldn't be killing people in the first place! We should be making friends instead.
fortunesgun: (Thinking)

[personal profile] fortunesgun 2017-09-12 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
[Naoto can't say with certainty what's in her envelope, but she has a very good idea. She doesn't have the confidence to destroy it that Kikyou does, but she does know that it's nothing she'd kill over.]

I agree.

[Killing is bad, and it doesn't take a detective to realize this.]

But I am worried. Whoever set up this 'game' gave us these envelopes with the expectation that we'd kill each other to protect the information inside. That seems like a rather weak motive, unless those responsible know that there's someone here who has a secret they'd be willing to commit murder to keep.
