    Paris, 1881. It is a wondeful time. Many frequent the local theater; the Opera Populaire. This theater holds a interesting story. Some of you may recall the strange affair of the Phantom of the Opera, a mystery never fully explained. The Opera Ghost, as the Phantom was sometimes known, haunted the Opera leaving messages of threats or warnings, detailing how the theater should be run in his view. If these messages are ignored, a disaster will occur. The Ghost also demands a salary of 20,000 francs a month. Messieurs Debienne and Poligny, the currents managers, are retiring and leaving the theater to two new managers, who are oblivious to the Opera Ghost, Messieurs Richard Firmin and Giles André. Firmin and André are looking to change the theater, with fundings from their new patrons, Comte Phillipe de Chagny and his younger brother, Vicomte Raoul de Chagny. Christine Daaé is a uprising soprano who has known Raoul since childhood. The Phantom has also been taking an interest to Miss Daaé and has been giving her voice lessons in secret, under the guise of the Angel of Music.

    Gameplay:
    This is a RPG based off the Gaston Leroux story and the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. You may pick an existing character or create one yourself. Whoever wants to be the Phantom has a special role. He is working in secret, possibly murdering someone or kidnapping people. We will be following the overall story, with some minor alterations, this being a RPG, afterall. Taking some elements from the musical, you may post in song. I don't want this to be just us quoting the musical, I want to keep it a game.

    Example.

    Erik:

    "Wandering child, so lost, so helpless, yearning for my guidance," Erik sang to Christine as he watched her walk through the graveyard. SHe was so beautiful in the moonlight. If only she loved him....


    Christine:

    Christine heard her Angel. She sighed and sang, sadly, "Angel or father, friend or Phantom, who is it there staring?"


    Get the idea? Songs will happen rarely, as I try to focus on story, I will make a post of when to start what song.

    Rules:
    1. No god-moding
    2. Send Character sheets to me through PM to approve them.
    3. If you have any suggestions, I'll be happy to listen to them. Just PM me.
    4. You may have up to two characters.
    5. Try to follow the overall story, but that doesn't mean, don't be original. Make Raoul and Christine feud at some moments, perhaps.
    6. Have fun.
    7. One minor note, every character is eligible for a sudden death. Blame the Phantom, not me.

    Name: Robin Darcy
    Age: 19
    Height: 5ft 7in
    Weight: 130lbs
    Appearance: Short blonde wavy hair (past the shoulders) usually worn up, pale, fair skin and an unsusaul shade of blue color for her eyes.
    Personality: Despite her incapabilaty of seeing, she makes up with her beautuful singing voice, and the Phantom takes note of that. She is polite and quite, I wouldn't say she's "shy". She kind of has low self-eestem, because, well, she doesn't know what she looks like.
    Voice Range: Soprano
    Biography: She has always been an orpahn, when she became of age, she left the orphanage and came to the Opera House, she knows Madame Giry fairly well, and she agrees to keep Robin at the Opera House to learn to sing and to dance(even thought many people laugh at the idea of a blind woman can learn to dance...) She met the met the Phantom, once. And she wishes to learn more about him...
