This would have been very disturbing anyway but then Pet's eye popped out and started rolling along the bottom of the boat. Great. Maybe she would be so fortunate as to have a kraken surface nearby and pluck her off the ship with one of its tentacles and kindly drown her. Petra Sleptova in Land, Ho!

SWP 9: A Pictish Curse!

Site-Wide Plot 9: A Pictish Curse

Almost a year ago, muggles began an archaeological dig near Hogsmeade, one that swiftly proved deadly and so was taken over by the Ministry of Magic. As the dig wrapped up, though, the (presumably) unthinkable happened: the artifacts were stolen, in a case that remains open today. The missing artifacts weren't seen again...

Until now.

The cause of two deaths on New Year's Eve has been traced back to one of the stolen objects, leading the Ministry of Magic to fret that there are more out in the world. And so there are.

Enter the (belated, sorry!) latest SWP from the Charming Team: A Pictish Curse!

Active Threads Looking for Participants
Unintended Consequences

Though this new CYOA starts as a solo venture, the choices you make can lead you to other individuals... or your doom. Those who participate fully will earn not one, but TWO stamps:


This plot is opt-in. Those who choose to participate directly must do so by filling in the form below and submitting it on or before February 29th, 2020—your adventure will start once you do! Those who prefer to be a background character can pop into related open threads, discuss newspaper articles, or serve as a played-NPC (that's totally a thing, guys) in another player's quest!

Code:
[b]Character:[/b]
[b]Risk Level:[/b] Misadventure, Long-Term Effects, or Born to Die (maybe)
[b]Affected or Engaged:[/b] Does your character have one of the artifacts (affected), or are they interested in some freelance investigating (engaged)?
[b]Obtained:[/b] IF AFFECTED, does your character seek out an artifact, or acquire one through chance?

Please keep the following in mind:
  • There is a maximum of two characters per player to be actively involved.
  • Students are limited to "Misadventure" level of shenanigans. Please note that student paths will inevitably be shorter than adult ones.
  • Any thread your character is engaged in set after your first SWP thread may be interrupted by the Suggestionizer ;)
  • Please aim to post at least once a fortnight in your solo threads, and at least once a week in your pair/group threads. (Real life happens, of course!)
  • When you're given your options, some will have clear outcomes whereas others will have hidden outcomes, much like an RPG. "Graceful exit" options will always be made clear, as will anything that can kill your character (if on a potential-death-path).
Happy shenanigans!

Maddie has recently returned from the social season in Moscow, and living with a middle class Russian family. 
Her inheritance is common knowledge.

Please come back and post once it has actually happened as I can't really plan anything when it's both vague and specific xD

Generally speaking, these items can only be purchased from ~sketchy shops as they're, you know, illegal.


Are your characters stuck in the smalltalk loop?
Does your imagination feel like it just can't perform as it used to?
Mid-thread crisis getting you down?
Unable to get that post up?
Is your relationship suffering because of your inability to satisfy your partner?
SUFFER NO MORE!
With a little intervention from @The Suggestionizer your RP life could be back on track in no time!

Known side-effects include: chronic ridiculousness, immense satisfaction, itching, uncontrollable laughter, burning, deep regret, despair, shock, horror, incidental dismemberment, joy, and death. Use at your own risk!

I'd been vague about it previously. Let's say departing Jan 9th unless another date would work better for you ^^
