Roleplay Name: 11 Days and Fire
Roleplay Genre: Historical tragedy
Setting: Pompeii, 79AD
It is 79 AD. Strange tremors are shaking the Rome that the Emperor Titus has inherited. In 11 days hundreds of people will lose their lives to the fire god: Vulcan, this is their story...
Your character's name must be Latin i.e. ending in "-a" for a woman, and "-us" for a man. Each person has three names. First, family, and clan.
1.Lucius Caecilius Iucundus and Quintus Caecilius Iucundus are father and son. LCI, as the oldest Caecilius Iucundus, formally takes the name "Caecilius", his wife, Metella calls him Lucius. Put "Metella semper est in atrio" in your first post so I know you've read this! QCI takes the name "Quintus".
In conclusion: The eldest male in each family is the only one to have an occupation, bar maybe his son. He takes the family name as his own. Everyone else takes their first names. Slaves have but one name.
2. If you're going to make a historical reference; make sure you know what you're talking about!
3. Sorry, girls, but female characters WILL be oppressed. That's the way it was, I'm afraid.
4. I decide when the days change. What with time difference and all, a real time RP wouldn't work.
5. Have fun!
5. All characters MUST be in Pompeii by the eleventh night, and everyone dies
It's a tragedy! What did you expect?
[b]Occupation:[/b] (If you are a woman character, I may not accept on grounds of profession.)
NB: Personality we become apparent by the way they react to the tremors that I will place throughout the story.
Olivius Dextrus Decendus
Aedile (head of events) and Gladiator Owner
Tall with black hair, slender, and has a regal air about him, possibly due to many signum rings (look it up)
Nemo (Meaning "nobody")
Mysterious Gladiator who never removes his mask
Stocky build, with a heavily scarred torso, and long, black hair.
Other: No one knows his name, not even his owner: Dextrus.
