Historical Hearsay [Plot Signup]

ATTENTION YOUNG HUNTERS AND HUNTRESSES!

Are you brave, strong, and seeking adventure? Do you wish to prove yourself as the prodigal hunter of you generation? Or are you simply exceedingly poor?

Then I may have the MISSION. FOR. YOU!

Recently, one of the rarest and most elusive Grimm on record - the elusive AMALTHEA - has been spotted on the outer edges of the former settlement, Mountain Glenn. This particular is notable for the particular specimen embedded in its back - an ANCIENT, IMPORTANT, and EXTREMELY COLLECTIBLE sword! I desire this piece for my PRIVATE collection, and will pay handsomely FOR ITS RETRIEVAL! I don't care about your age, skill level as long as the sword is in PRISTINE CONDITION!

I'm seeking a team of approximately three students, perhaps with a professional hunter escort, in order to retrieve the sword. If you care to apply for the job, simply reach out to me at 555-555-5555. The monetary reward will be approximately 100,00 lien per student.

I look forwards to hearing from interested individuals soon!

Sincerely Yours,
Mr. Mallard.



"...Right, with that out of the way, here's what we're dealing with: an Amalthea actually has been spotted on the outskirts of Mountain Glenn. For those of you unaware of the Grimm's reputation, it's a harbringer. Whenever one of those shows up somewhere, some sort of natural disaster will usually hit the area within seventy-two hours of it's initial sighting."

"Assistant Headmistress Printempts wants eyes on the ground, tracking it down and maybe taking care of it, best-case scenario. We see an Amalthea approximately twice a decade, and never in the same place. If you want a chance at making history, then I suggest accepting this invite ASAP. If you're signing up, pack enough for a few weeks of wilderness survival. We don't know how long we'll be out there."

"The monetary reward for that sword or whatever is just a nice bonus. Stupid student debt..."




Welcome to the plot signups for Historical Hearsay, a PC v. Grimm thread, aimed around tracking and (eventually) hunting down a new grimm of original design known as the Amalthea, soon coming to a Grimm catalogue near you. The thread will be written choose-your-own-adventure-kinda style with the stipulation there's a full chance that will change, depending on how the thread progresses. The theme is mystery, and your OC will be tracking the Amalthea through dangerous, generally-uncharted wilderness.

Moreso than anything, this is a thread that I want to be a story for interested participants. There's an equal chance you'll succeed or fail the mission, though I'll do my best to nudge you towards the former - and you may end up a happy medium. However, it's also dangerous. The Amalthea is a mysterious grimm by in-universe standards, with much of the information surrounding it based around rumor and legend.

Basically, you're going to be facing some unique stuff.

I'll be reaching out to those who sign up to ask about something you want to accomplish in this thread for your character (within reason, you're not going to get an auto-win), whether it's a emotional realization or simply something that'll let them get a cool scar. You'll be welcome to change this at any given time, as well.

I'm opening up slots for three poeple, because that feels like a good number to hope for given the current activity levels of the board. If more are interested, I'll open it up to four. Characters will be chaperoned by Malina Nahualli-Roth, who's been generously loaned to me by Dr. Gustave because I didn't feel like creating an entire staff character.

Slots are listed below, and they'll be updated accordingly. Please tell me the name of the character you want to enter, and link their profile:
1. Diana Farran
2. Lucas Meridiem
3. Isabella Aozora

If you've got any questions, feel free to DM me here or on the Discord. Preferably the Discord, I'm way more responsive there. Before you sign up, it's appreciated if you know you'll be able to post consistently, though I'm not in a rush to write this.

Overall, thanks for reading, and happy hunting!

I'm certainly interested, probably with Diana could see some potential with bringing her on a longer mission for medical/healing semblance utility. Then again she is a first-year and probably not the strongest fighter for a particularly strong grimm.

I'll throw Lucas in here, though that currently brings the count to two support types. At least there'll be a 4th year to balance it out
Smokey Emberstone Beacon 1st Year and the Immovable Gunslinger of Team DASE "I've got more than enough firepower to beat you" "You've only got one bullet!" "Like I said, more than enough"

Aurelia Lumen Beacon 3rd year and the Warhorse of Team (TBD)  "Lay down your weapons, lest you wish to taste my steel!"

Wabul "Toast" Paka Shade 1st year and the Acrobatic Swashbuckler of Team (TBD)  "Hey, I'm gonna go jump off a bridge, who's with me?"

Lucas Meridiem Haven 4th year and the Hermit of Team (TBD)  "What's so great about 'bittersweet'?"

Clara Meridiem Beacon 1st year and the Blast Magician of Team (TBD) "No one likes just plain ol' bitter"

August Flare Beacon 1st year and the would-be ruler of the world "Join me, and witness the Brightest Future!"

I'll sign up with Isabelle. She is only a first year, but she is good on the offensive and shines the most when she has solid support.
Isabelle Aozora - The Scaredy-Cat
Lyssa Andromiko - The Raging Racist
Vivian Xanthia - The Cyborg Wonder
Cassidy Uaine - The Benevolent Monkey
Iris Anahi Isoba - The All-Seeing Eye [Soon™]

Right, I left this up for a week in case anybody else wanted to sign up, but it looks like everyone who's interested is already interested.

Party participants have been edited into the original post. I'll reach out to y'all on discord soon, and throw up a starter post sometime in a few days. Keep an eye out!
