As stated in the Inhabitants section of the User Manual, there are various classes and professions that can be selected, which can be anywhere between what fits your play style or personality to just who you want your in-game persona to be! Below, you will find more information regarding the inherent abilities and bonuses to each class as well as the different sorts of equipment you may have at your chosen profession's disposal!

Choose wisely, your class and profession are currently locked but may open for change in a later update!

               Blade

As the name would suggest, a Blade class character uses an array of bladed weapons to fit their fighting style, preferences or just personal taste! Being up-close and personal types of characters, all Blades gain an inherent bonus of +10 defense upon character creation to ensure they're a bit tougher and able to get up close and keep their enemies distracted while their support stays healthy in the back, while support helps keeping them healthy in turn!

Single - A Single Blade character uses a one-handed weapon in whichever hand is preferred, freeing the other for another item such as an enchantment with inherent magic ability where Skill Points are not required, or a shield for added defense (all characters can defend, of course, but not as well as a Single Blade with a shield). This class is designed for versatility in that regard and we consider it the "beginner" class, if you will, best suited for those new to role playing games to enjoy the experience without too much difficulty and a good fighting chance.

Examples of skills for a Single Blade include:

Bash - Use your off hand equipment to strike an enemy with a high chance to stun.  1 min. Cooldown

Flurry - sacrifice off-hand defense for a barrage of lightning quick thrusting strikes on enemies within range in front of your character. 2 min. Cool down

Dual - Unlike the Single Blade, the Dual Blade profession utilizes both hands to deliver non-stop damage per second to enemies, though their speed is balanced with lower damage per hit. Fast and typically built to be agile characters, rather than tough as the Single or Heavy may be, Dual Blades can use either a matching pair of weapons or a different sort in each hand if they want to vary the enchantments or skills the weapons may inherently provide. 

Examples of skills for a Dual Blade include:

Cyclone - A short range area of effect attack where your character spins around rapidly, striking enemies within range of the surrounding area for standard damage, delivered at a much higher rate than standard attacks might per enemy effected. 4 min. Cooldown

Quick Escape - Find yourself in trouble and surrounded by a group of enemies and your hit points aren't looking so good? Drop a smoke pellet and slip away unnoticed to heal up and return to battle! 10 min. Cooldown

Heavy - Slow, but tough and powerful, Heavy Blades prefer the use of large, two-handed weapons with incredibly high damage output per hit to make up for their lack of speed. Usually built with high defense to be the "tank" characters of the group with their close-to-mid-range attacks suited for getting the attention of groups of enemies. Note: Heavy Blades can have points assigned to Dexterity but this won't be much help with their rate of attack.

Examples of skills for Heavy Blades include:

Single File - Have a group of enemies rushing toward you, one following step with the next? Raise your large weapon over your head and bring it down with such force that the Earth below is scarred from the impact, dealing massive damage to effected enemies. 4 min. Cool down

Mighty Swing - Heave your weapon and swing it with such force, enemies within the surrounding area of your season's range are devastated with high damage and knocked back with chance of stun. 10 min. Cooldown

              Magic

Magic class characters act as support for their team, either with buffs for allies, debuffs for enemies, heals for party members or curses and status ailments for enemies, these witty classes keep their distance whenever possible to stay out of the eyes of foes while they keep their fighters protected and healthy. All Magic class characters receive an inherent bonus of +20 Skill Points to ensure they can adequately support their team without running out of SP too quickly per spell cast.

White - White Magic characters are the backbone of any good party, serving as the primary providers of attack and defense enhancements as well as protective and healing spells. They're not much good in a close-up conflict and are rather fragile unless their defense is increased with level ups. 

Examples of skills for White Mages include:

Blessing - Heal a party member between 35%-50% their maximum HP value, certain equipment can be found to help that number remain constant or even raise the rate healed. 3min30sec. Cool down

Armor of Light - Single target - target character is coated in a suit of thin armor made of solid light, increasing their defense by up to 50%, effectiveness inherently increases with caster's level. 20 min. Cooldown

Black - Chaotic and irreverent, Black Magic characters tap into the forces of darkness to bring ruin to those who would oppose them and their allies. Black Mages work opposite to White, rather than healing allies, they cause harm to enemies in various capacities and instead of protecting allies, they weaken foes and even cause damage over time. Like all Magic class characters, they are best suited to fighting from a distance, but an enemy would be lucky to get close enough to attack.

Examples of skills for Black Mages include:

Soul Rend - Single target, the enemy is afflicted with a dark curse that tears away at their life force from the inside, causing 3% of their maximum HP to be lost every second over 10 seconds. Effect and duration increase with level of caster. 5 min. Cooldown

Try it - A dark haze surrounds your character, damaging enemies around them at a low rate but also compels them to flee, making a tight situation a little more managable. 10 min. Cooldown

Element - Element Magic characters master the forces of nature for both attack and defense, or specialization in one or the other. With some spells suited to inflict elemental damage and exploit elemental weaknesses of enemies and some made to protect the caster and allies from the additional effects of elemental damage added to attacks, an Element Mage is suited for specialization in raiding parties, but is also great to have in a party in general.

Examples of skills for Elemental Mages include:

Flashflood - Close-long range area of effect, the caster summons the raging waters of rivers and lakes to wash away opponents and put out fires, both dealing damage with additional water elemental damage as well as pushing enemies back a short distance with the rushing water. 10min. Cooldown

Lightning Rod - Once cast, lasts 3min. All electric elemental damage is nullified on the caster and party for the duration of the spell. 5 min. Cooldown

             Trigger

As dangerous as they are unpredictable, Trigger characters are the swifter of any class, able to maneuver around an enemy and pepper them with short-long range attacks using ranged weapons of varying effects. While made to be fighters, they are tougher than Magic class characters, but have less longevity than Blade class characters, making them optimal secondary attackers and constant defenders of support characters. All Trigger class characters receive an inherent bonus of +10 Dexterity, keeping them quick, agile and easy to manuever, but not to follow.

Bow - Bow Trigger characters favor the ancient and dependable art of the bow and arrow to take out enemies from a distance. Bow Triggers have a unique advantage where their arrows can be enchanted with elemental damage for a limited time at the user's choosing to add elemental damage and exploit weaknesses, which can be combined with attack skills to best suit any given situation! 

Examples of skills for Bow Triggers include:

Arrow Rain - Short-long range area of effect, the user shoots a special arrow into the sky that splits into a hundred smaller arrows, which then rain down on enemies in a container area. Area of effect and number of hits increase relative to level. 5 min. Cool down

Roll - At-will skill, the user rolls in a selected direction, granting them invulnerability for the duration of the dodge, but can be hit when on their feet before the next roll of the user chooses to roll in succession. Dependable, but by no means a method of constant invincibility.

Click - Bang-Bang! Click Trigger characters are gunslingers who use handguns and variations of them, one in each hand. Their attacks are effective from range but generally low in damage per hit, making a battle one-on-one potentially lengthy against a high level enemy when not in a party. They have the unique trait of being able to equip weapons that deal extra elemental damage of a set type per weapon and can use a different type for each hand.

Examples of traits for Click Triggers include: 

Fwoosh - A quick, short range dash that projects the user in the selected direction, making them highly agile and hard for enemies to follow. They are vulnerable to attacks during the dash. 2 sec. Cooldown

Point-blank - Inherently active skill, every shot fired at an enemy within a close range distance is a critical hit, dealing +100% damage per hit before elemental effects, if any.

Heavy - Heavy Trigger characters are the ranged equivalent to the Heavy Blade, dealing incredible damage but at a very slow rate between short and long range depending on their equipment. They use larger guns such as assault rifles, sniper rifles and the like. Like Click Triggers, their weapon may inherently deal extra elemental damage of a single type per hit.

Examples of skills for a Heavy Trigger include:

Burst Fire - Assault Rifles only, fire three rapid shots per attack with no damage penalty. 5 sec. Cooldown

Headshot - Inherent active skill, when an enemy is hit in the head with an attack, damage is increased by 200%.

         Unreleased

Blunt - A master of blunt weapons or unarmed combat, built to do damage and nothing else and made to be suitable for advanced players who are better off alone.

Mind - Telekinesis, mesmeric ability and the ability to project illusions into the minds of others, Mind class characters are made to disorient the enemy for an easy kill.

The various classes have a wide variety of weapons available to them that can be found, dropped by enemies, bought in stores or customized with skins or blacksmiths in game.  Skins are purely cosmetic and have no other in game benefit.

Single Blade - One-handed swords and daggers are the standard equipment of this profession, such as katanas, rapiers and the like. Skins can be found in game or purchased from stores to make the weapons in game become Axes, Scythes, flails and other One-handed melee weapons.

All Magic class characters have use of any staff, wand or other augment they find for their class, though they can be enchanted in shops or with items to give bonuses for skills of their professions. Skins can be found in game and at vendors to alter the appearance of their equipment to fit a variety of aesthetics, such as large candy canes or other festive objects.

      Now would be a good time to start discussing events. Obviously I have a few in mind, but let's toss around some ideas for things to be happening around the town.
    • TheSourestPatch
      By TheSourestPatch
      I'm a simple kinda guy with simple expectations and requirements for anyone who I role play with, especially in groups. 
      - I'll say up front, this role play is gonna be what you make it. Want to have a fun night for your character while others try to survive until sunrise against ghouls and goblins? Great! Wanna get corn syrup everywhere while others are at a friend's Halloween party throwing down candy corn shots? Awesome. Everyone's Halloween is different anyways, if you want to participate in what I or another member orchestrate, have a blast. Wanna do your own thing? Do it.
      - I don't believe in the term "advanced" or "expert" when it comes to my role plays. I've had wonderful partners who has some longer responses, some shorter responses but were a joy to play with. I, myself, love detail and I'm guilty of writing the occasional novel in a role play when my imagination runs wild, but I don't want post length to intimidate anyone. In all my years role playing, "advanced" just means "more words", even if it's all pointless filler or repeating things in different ways to make a post longer. More words =/= better role play. Anyone can join, all I ask is that you know what you're doing and can form proper sentence structure.
      - Do what you will with your characters, but I like to go by the logic that my characters are never really safe. Choices made with other characters can alter their fates. I'm known elsewhere for being bad to my characters and in many cases, there are fatalities. Food for thought.
      - Sexy time - Sex is a horror staple and obviously a big thing on this site, so go to bone town. Some of y'alls are into your characters getting humped by monsters. Go for it. Some aren't. You don't have to, that's not what this role play was made for but you can do what you want. I expect you all to coordinate what will happen between who amongst yourselves and I'm no exception to this rule. HOWEVER I don't want to see this role play become nothing but steamy scenes. You can make a thread separately if your characters are in a private place if you want.
      - Player characters are not to be killed without that player's agreement. I shouldn't have to have side conversations about this. Those posts will be ignored and after one warning, ya done.
      - More specific rules for characters will be added in the character information section which is yet to be made, for specifics on characters, see that section when it's up.
      - I encourage new ideas! Don't make up a thread or location without running it by me, so I can keep track of what's haopening, mostly, but if you have an idea for a story, monster or place where something is happening, run it by me and we'll make it work.

      I love Autumn. I love everything surrounding the season. The not warm, not cold breezes. The scents of pumpkin, fire and marshmallow that float through the air. The cheesy horror songs and movie marathons. Most of all, I fucking love Halloween. Naturally, in celebration of the rapidly approaching spooky time, I wanted to do a role play to share the spirit.
      Initially, based on the best kinds of Halloween movies, I wanted this to be an "Anthology" role play, or, essentially, various smaller, self contained role plays that all happen on the same night, in the same town, with the potential to cross over with one another and intersect stories, whether they be camp or serious, bloody or funny. The idea of characters from separate stories bumping into each other has always had it's draw for me.
      However, looking at this realistically, the limited market for spooky role plays, the varying imagination scales and attention spans of dreamers would clash and things would fall apart in that sort of format, much to my dismay, so instead it will be one bonkers story with various locations. I wanted everything to be evident, all the Halloween and horror cliches, representation for classic activities, the works, and also pay homage to a lot of my favorite creature features.
      More to come, but feel free to throw in your two cents.

      Blackberry Falls Extra Information
      It is the modern day, and the place this roleplay finds itself in is Blackberry Falls, a city situated on a large island that is perhaps a little larger than the United Kingdom. This fair, bountiful land is split between two separate countries; Ashaea, and the United Federation of Families which has settled in on the island in recent years. The Capital cities, Blackberry Falls and Xantall’ar, sit on opposite ends of the island, separated by other, smaller cities and a wide expanse of forest that dominates the island. The cities have settled on the southern end of the island, and just to their north is a large cliff that runs from one side of the country to the other. Beyond the cliffs is the rest of the island, dotted here and there with towns and villages. The river that spills down the cliffside splits into two large rivers, with one headed towards Blackberry Falls and the other heading into UFF country, so that both reap the benefits of the strange water.
      For the moment, the relationship between the two countries is an uneasy peace. They mostly stay out of each other’s business, although there is limited trade between the two. Between the borders of the two countries is a de-militarised zone, that prevents either side from being able to send any kind of military into the other country. This has helped maintain the delicate truce that the two countries share.
      Blackberry Falls is a large, modern city, filled with large skyscrapers, which displays the wealth and development of this human metropolis. One of the things that Blackberry Falls is famous for is its BlackBerries, due to their high quality and abundant Blackberry harvests. There is something in the water of the island that causes the BlackBerry bushes to grow far larger than normal, and the berries to be the most delicious in the world. It also helps the inhabitants of the island stay healthy and helps them live longer.
      The time of Blackberry Falls is the early 21st century, and despite the violent economic climate, Blackberry has fared extremely well. This is largely in part thanks to the trade that Ashaea has had with the UFF and their major corporation, Keza Corp. Ashaea has their own corporation, EDANCorp, that has filled Blackberry Falls with technology that suppasses any that other human countries, although it is a few steps behind what Keza Corp has been able to produce, because the UFF tends to keep their own technology to themselves. With the combination of the trade with the UFF, their own self-sustaining ways and EDANCorp, Ashaea has remained prosperous while other economies have faltered. 
      For humans, Blackberry Falls has turned into a technology empire, and there are thousands of jobs available for the citizens to apply for. They are also in the lead for the latest medical technology for humans, and it is home to one of the most state of the art human hospital, Blackberry General Hospital. The UFF is home for the most advanced technology in the world, and they actually have the most advanced hospital in the world, Keza Corp Hospital, however due to their restricted borders and lack of interest in sharing what Keza Corp produce, their technology (medical or otherwise) is not available to those in Blackberry Falls. Even if it was available, the UFF is made up of species that have a different biology to humans, Neko’s and other species, so the technology would not even be of any use.
      As with any city with a large population, crime does still exist and there is even a Black Market there. However, Blackberry Falls keep their prison population low by only putting the most violent offenders in the state-run prison. This keeps the most violent people off of the street, while leaving in peace those who do something as benign as smoking weed in their own home. 
      Blackberry Falls is a place where people come and seek their fortunes. Everything about the city is something that most people can only dream of. However, like every city in the world, it has its poor, run-down areas where people live in poverty and where the crime rates are the highest on the entire island. For those who are unable to make the fortunes they dreamed of, this is where they usually end up. The city does all it can to improve the areas, however with the current rising house prices due to the demand, there is little they are able to do apart from support numerous charities that help out in the impoverished areas. 
      One thing that the UFF and Ashaea do share in common is that both of them are quite strict when it comes to immigration and customs. The UFF is a lot more strict than Ashaea, with the chances of getting in if you’re a non-UFF species being only slightly higher than the chance of getting to the moon as an untrained Astronaut. Ashaea is less strict than the UFF, however they have similar restraints as Australia and New Zealand, especially when it comes to the importation of food which has the potential to destroy their agriculture and bring the economy to its knees. The currency that is used in Blackberry Falls, is the Blackberrian Dollar. It’s one of the most valuable human currencies on the planet, which speaks of their strong economy.

      Notable Laws:
      Ashaen Rights Charter Freedom of Speech, expression, press and religion Citizens have the right to carry firearms (As long as they are not a convicted felon. A concealed weapon requires a permit) Citizens have the right to defend themselves Right to privacy The Right for a Fair Trial by Peers Innocent until proven guilty by a Court of Law. Property Rights, as well as Search and Seizure Rights Drug laws: Possession with Intent (To sell) for most Narcotics, is illegal. Simple Possession of a Personal Amount is decriminalised, so someone in possession of a small amount of Meth will not be charged for it.  It is illegal for someone under the influence of any narcotic drug (With exception to Nicotine) to be operating a vehicle, or heavy machinery. A crime committed while under the influence of narcotic drugs (With exception to Nicotine) will have additional charges such as "Committing a Misdemeanor/Felony while Under the Influence". Just because it's legal to consume drugs does not negate any responsibilities from the individual. Cannabis is Legal to possess in any quantity and it is also legal to grow at home for personal use.  The selling of Cannabis, along with Alcohol and Tobacco requires a license. The age in which it is legal to purchase Alcohol, Tobacco and Cannabis is 18.  It is illegal to supply either of the three to minors. Prostitution is legal, under the following guidelines: You do not solicit minors under the age of consent (16) Within a fully legal and licensed brothel. Brothels have a duty of care for their prostitute staff such as medical screenings, contraceptives and security. It is legal to prostitute in your own home. If a prostitute is out on the streets, they can only solicit between the hours of 10PM and 6AM. Citizens are responsible for their actions, even under the influence of drugs Age of consent is 16 years of age. Obviously, things such as murder, rape, fraud, etc, are illegal. So characters will be sought after by the Police if these crimes are committed, and the Police alerted to. Otherwise, the Police are very active in the communities and other places and have a very good relationship with the other civilians. List of things in city:

For most of these places, what they are is quite obvious, although when I do eventually create a map for it, I might label some of the places on it. Some of the places will get a bit of a description here; however, some of the much larger places will have their own Extra Information, which will be linked below as it would be far too much information to contain to this single extra information. Despite being in their own extra information they are linked to Blackberry Falls, but may have their own limits in place. As the extra information is approved before it is added to this list, then the limits must be observed to be able to roleplay in Blackberry Falls.
