This RP room is supposed to have a horror/mystery/drama theme, and a basic continuing plot that somewhat imitates the events seen in a few popular collections of online video entries, and creepypasta tales. For those who are familiar with the Slenderman Mythos or the stories following the youtube accounts of TribeTwelve, Marble Hornets, or the Everymanhybrid team, the plot shouldn’t be hard to keep up with.
Premise: Welcome to the pet-friendly creepypasta series, a chilling unfolding of events relating to the various horror mythos many have come to know. Be warned: the events to pass surrounding the characters of this story are not for the meek or the lighthearted. This is the realm of terror and fear, of paranoia and horror. Ye have been warned.
Welcome to the city, survive if you can.
Edge is unique to say the least. It’s a place that lives up to its name for its unusual location which borders a very large forest on one side, and an expanse of semi-arid plains on the other, both sides with fringing suburbs and the heart of the city at the border of these two areas. Edge initially started as a small boomtown due to the timber industry becoming focused on a portion of the forest to its west, and the opportunity taken by many to use the plains to its east for agricultural purposes. However after a short while, the timber industry’s opportunity near Edge was crushed after the forest became restricted as a nature preserve, causing a great deal of businesses in the city to go under due to the sudden decrease of working residents. Current day, Edge is sustained primarily by workers and residents from the nearby plains, and the businesses that had taken root in the city itself in the past.
-Since the area had quieted down so much in the recent years, Edge along with all its surrounding suburbs have been made pet-friendly.
-The once bustling small city has become hardly more active than the original town it started out as, giving the place an almost dilapidated appearance in certain areas.
-while the suburbs are dotted with small stores, gas stations, and parks, the city is the location of the major stores and services such as the police department, schools, and entertainment venues.
-At least 30 to 40 percent of the standing buildings in Edge City are empty and have been standing for lease for decades.
-While it’s technically not covered in the city’s ‘pet-friendly’ ordinance, pets regularly use public busses without trouble or question, so transportation between even the furthest edges of the suburbs and the heart of the city isn’t something difficult to manage.
-East Suburbs: Very widespread homes and a few small stores, outside of the city limits and not far from an interstate highway. Further properties are small farms.
-West Suburbs: Closely packed neighborhoods in a woodland setting. Many of the more expensive homes of Edge can be found here. Rumored to be an area with an extensive history for disappearing pets.
-Edge City K9 Training Center: The largest service animal training facility in the county. Works in tandem with the City police department.
-Downtown Edge: Arguably what was the original setting of Edge City. Many of the buildings in the area are ancient, and have been condemned for years.
