Harper Becker gathers a group of women that she met over her life to join her on a cruise for her twenty-first birthday. Whether they were best friends in childhood, met in college, found each other online, a dating relationship, maybe they had a meaningful moment on the tram and kept in touch ever since- Harper had some kind of connection to each of these women. However, none of them truly know each other nor their impact on Harper's life. (You can ask to PM me if you need ideas for a character backstory).
This little cruise is all fine and dandy -they go out on a small yacht that Harper's family owns- until a major storm comes out of nowhere. The women crash land on a small, deserted island and have no way to contact the outside world. The first couple days, they get to know each other and hope for the best as they wait to be rescued. However, everything changes when Harper Becker is murdered.
Hello! I saw the trailer for The Wilds on prime video and wanted to do this. It isn't in any way based on the plot of The Wilds 'cause I haven't seen it, but I was in the mood to do a deserted-island roleplay and murder is fun to write too, so why not? I will be roleplaying as Harper and another character, I figured we could roleplay the beginning of the cruise, the crash, and them being stranded for a day or two before the murder.
The identity of the murderer will be chosen by good ol' random.org, so every character must have a reason to murder Harper Becker (keep it a secret). The reason to murder Harper must be something with depth (not just "I was hungry, and she wouldn't give me food". Make it part of their backstory!) I will secretly PM whoever is chosen to be the murderer, and the idea is that we will roleplay the women getting to know each other and trying to figure out this complex situation. If your character is the murderer, don't make it obvious so we can slowly unravel the mystery!
If you have any questions about Harper and what her relationship could be to your character, feel free to ask! I don't have Harper's backstory set in stone, so there's plenty of wiggle room to help develop your character's backstory! If you have any other questions, please ask because I'm sure I'm forgetting some important details haha. I will get a character sheet up after a few people join :D
Andrew's rules apply
Keep swearing to a minimal (so not every other word), but it is allowed
Violence and gore are okay, but don't overdo it (don't be writing extreme gore in every single post, one bloody description is enough to cover it!)
Let us know any triggers prior to the start of the roleplay, and posts with said triggers will be marked accordingly if applicable.
Write at least a paragraph for each response
Ask to join (idk if this needs to be a rule or not but I figured I'd tack it in there anyways haha), and I reserve the right to say no
