Road to Hamelin [looking for players]

Concept: You play as the children that were taken from Hamelin by the Pied Piper, and your goal is to return home. Since you play as children, you are not particularly good at fighting, so it is more about finding allies and clues to get you back home.

This RP uses standard RP rules:
no power-playing, that is, you have no say in the result of your actions, only the actions yourself.
stick to your character; don't suddenly ignore their weaknesses or strengths


Character sheet:

Name:
Gender: male/female
Age: 8-14
Personality: (Make sure your character has strengths and weaknesses personality-wise, and make sure they aren't essentially you)
Parents: (what are your character's parents like? Make sure this ties in to your character's personality. at least 1 parent needs to be alive)

Introduction:
It is the second of april, 1284, and there has been an infestation of rats in your home city of Hamelin up until last night. The Major, sir Egre, had gotten desperate, and had promised gold to anyone who could rid the city of rats. A mysterious figure showed up yesterday, dressed in green, and offered his services to the city. After sir Egro accepted, the mysterious man instructed everyone to plug their ears the following night. As night fell and everyone had plugged their ears, the man started playing his flute, and all the rats in Hamelin started to dance behind him. He walked out of the city gate, towards the nearby river, and drowned the rats. When he came to pick up his reward this morning, however, the major said that one hour of work is not worth gold, and gave the man a single coin. "This will not do", the man replied, but the major ignored him. Now, during the Sunday Mass in church, we can hear a familiar tune: the same tune that was used to get rid of the rats, and all the children are staring to dance out of the church, towards the Mountain of Rocks.

That is the last thing you remember as you wake up in a damp cave, lit by a faint blue light coming from the cave entrance. Near your group is the Rat Catcher's pipe. It appears to be made from a blueish crystal and is cold to the touch.


please refrain from posting any actions until we have enough players

Re: Road to Hamelin [looking for players]

The mouthpiece seems to be made from a different material than the rest of the wood: It's not as cold, and doesn't shine the way the crystal does. The pipe itself is adorned with spiralling patterns, which start at the mouthpiece with a straight line and then spiral outward. in the corner of your eye you catch the glimpse of something green.

Re: Road to Hamelin [looking for players]

Damon examines the walls, hoping to find any kind of secret exit or hint of where they are.

Re: Road to Hamelin [looking for players]

There don't seem to be any oddities on the cave walls. When you look towards the cave exit though, you notice a small figure dressed in green. It sees you and makes a sound that can best be described as "in between a laugh and a scream".

Re: Road to Hamelin [looking for players]

Damon cowers near the other children, hoping the figure won't notice him.

Marc covers his ears and shuts his eyes, trying to block out the terrifying noise.

Azalea picks up the flute and puts it in her pocket, thinking it might be useful later.

Re: Road to Hamelin [looking for players]

The flute does not fit in Azalea's pocket. The green figure sees the flute and exclaims. "The dream flute, I must have it! Shila will punish me, she'll take my beard away!" the figure appears to cry for a bit, then stares at the flute and starts walking towards it while making the same laughing sound as earlier.
