Recently... Something mysterious has been happening in Argent, the city formerly known as San Francisco. It's been nothing but a compilation of deep web internet threads and spotty speculation, and is certainly not the first thing on everyone's mind due to the war-torn state of the world, but recently... People have been reported dying, and coming back to life without recollection of their deaths. The event is so infrequent, and well downright outrageous, that it's not taken seriously by media. They're far more interested in reporting frivolous things like sports and music, to distract from the post-apocalyptic state of the world... To take everyone's minds off of the fact that they're trapped within Argent, and the world outside that once was home is now a toxic wasteland of disease and chemicals. And of course, there's Gravefall. The organization that always seems to be around, but is never really discovered. The group that takes over television channels frivolously to place their gaudy red logo of a Phoenix, broadcasting the fact that they're going to "save the world"... A ragtag group of people working behind the scenes, not even brave enough to show their faces, who busied themselves with petty jobs like posting on internet forums and spray painting their logo across the city claimed they could save the world.
Hah. This world wasn't even worth saving.
Gravefall is roleplay group run in a Dungeons and Dragons sort of moderated style, where I (Dragons-Roar) serve as the Dungeon Master. Your character will die, be changed, develop either independently or through modification using the in-group mechanics. We are a group focused on moving through the story, so we're very active, and are only looking for other people seeking an involved roleplaying experience!
Every two weeks OR once a month, groups will get together at a time I have assigned for them and complete an approximately six hour roleplay, where your character will go through some event in the Gravefall world. Here is where the action happens! Because of this, you need to be able to devote at least six hours to one of our timeslots every two weeks, listed to the side of this box.
Artistically, we are also a group meant to push each other to improve and create content for the world of Gravefall. Concept Art-esque pieces are encouraged- The development of the aesthetic of Gravefall is a group effort. When you become a member, you become part of the world, and are welcomed and encouraged to create pieces of a professional quality for the group, that can also double off as portfolio pieces. However art isn't something required to stay in Gravefall, we simply encourage it. What we care about more than anything is your personality. What do you bring to the table for our community?
We're a huge family always looking for new members, but since we're so close knit we are very selective about who gets accepted. I also dedicate a lot of time to every member, so too many members is an issue... We always try to keep membership low. If you want to become part of our family, shoot us an application!
For an example of how the group will pan out, check out my last group, Death Hunters:

We're a group that does not follow the traditional application process. We like to interview people before they join, as our highest priority is that new members fit in the group personality-wise rather than skill-wise (though art and writing skills are still important.)
Steps: 1. Send me an email with the application filled out. The application may be in the inbox for a while if you don't fit any of the current groups. If you are rejected, I will reply to the email telling you so. 2. If I like your application, I will add you on Skype for a text interview. 3. If you pass the interview, congratulations! You're in the group. I will give you instructions on how to make a character. Usually I will give you two weeks to finish your character reference.
These are the times we do guided roleplays that are OPEN FOR NEW MEMBERS. You only need to match one. All times are in Pacific Standard Time. Plot Roleplays are once a month.
