"People fear death even more than pain. It's strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess death is your friend."
- Jim Morrison
: Some say that death is just a chapter. Those people are wrong. Death is not an event in life. We do not live to experience death. This fiend knows death. It breathes death. Where it goes, bloodshed follows. It is not a person. It is not a thing. It is an idea, an embodiment of evil that cannot be tamed. The Reaper is still on the loose. It has to end. It will end. We are doing what it takes to bring this monster to justice. That's my promise to you.
1. Obey all SPPF Rules and all Games Section Rules
2. Don't flame/bash/spam
3. Role playing is allowed and encouraged. Don't go overboard, though. Don't affect the plot too much, and don't find any magical fixes. RPing is mainly to develop your character more. That's the best way to show me how to play your character.
4. You can vote if you don't have a character in the game, but don't RP if you don't.
5. Please don't rush me. I have other projects that I work on, so I may take time to deliver the goods. Bumping the thread is okay if it starts going under.
6. Your vote needs to be justified, otherwise it won't be counted
7. Unlike games like Poke Drama Island, and pokemon big brother, you can change your vote. This game takes some cues from mafia and it is encouraged that you defend your character from people's justifications and try to sway their opinion.
8. During the Immunity phase of the game, you cannot vote for your own character to get immunity. Sorry, I just don't want a 10-way tie every time.
9. Don't nominate a pokemon that was used in a previous MOTR.
First is the sign-up. Everyone can choose one male and one female to sign up with. I will be selecting twenty, but based on what characters I think work and are interesting. This is not first come first serve.
After that, I will RNG who The Reaper is. This is similar to Mafia, in which the goal is to try and guess who The Reaper is based on actions, reactions, and clues.
I will start with the Introduction/Day Scene. After that, you vote for who you think is The Reaper. After that comse the Night/Elimination Scene. If the person voted out is not The Reaper, that person is executed. If it is The Reaper, then the game enters the next stage.
The Reaper will stay in the game after being caught. After that happens, after the Day Scene, people vote for who gets immunity and the deaths in the night scene are randomized. If the person who is voted for immunity is selected to die in the Night Scene, the game ends and the survivors win. If one person remains besides The Reaper, The Reaper wins.
I will introduce some NPC characters, either new creations or characters from the past.
Spoiler:- Sign Up Form:
The Sign-Up Form
Species with Smilie:
Personality: Backstory is great, feel free to include some of that but make sure the personality is there too.
Personality: Robin is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he is not an idiot either, more a man of regular intelligence, with an impulsive nature, ready to just get to the punch without fully thinking through what he's doing. Fortunately, his job has always been simple, so his nature has never gotten in the way. Due to his impulsiveness he has been seen as unhelpful, and is usually neglected when large plans occur at different events he may go to. Despite how everyone sees him, his heart is in the right place, and he hopes to one day find someone to keep him grounded.
He lived most of his life alone living on the streets, due to his parents death. The cause of the death having been from his own older sister, Juliet. He has always had a fear of evolving since the dramatic occurrence at the age of Four.
Species with Smilie: Enoch the
Personality: Enoch is pretty much obsessed with death. The bare thought of death excites him and make him all warm and fuzzy but he is very soft spoken about it. As he could be a in regular conversation and then out of nowhere he will start talking about blood, death or anything involving gore. Enoch uses this as somewhat a shield. He is upset about his parents sending him to a wizard school(where he was tortued) that he hides the pain by always putting on fake simile and referencing pain of all kinds but even in this he is a flirt...a shameless flirt. No matter what he bounces back to talk to a girl but he doesn't know how to act so he may do something......insane involving blood or death to impress a girl. Also he likes to try to enact curses by scarificing animals but he lovess dogs and has no intention of hurting them
Occupation: Enoch covers up his love of death by being a morgue worker which makes his love of death dig even deeper.
Erika turned out nothing like I intended her to but she still ended being one of the most critically acclaimed? I guess I'll put trust in your writing once more.
- - - -
Species with Smilie: Altaria
Gender: Proper-enough Lady
Personality: Erika's estranged "sister"... after Erika stepped out on her family. Excels at being lady-like in all aspects (most of the time), you could say she was the preferred sibling in most ways. Carrying a jubilant air about her, she'll usually look for something that her partner in talk is fascinated by then jump in from there. Having mastered both talking and listening, she can carry such conversation well into the night.
Having been involved in some of Erika's early cases, Evanna knows what it's like to be under fire, and now keeps on a cool demeanor when under pressure. Now, quirks... ... ... her humour is usually on the perverted side, and she will sometimes use rather clever word-play. She is also rather vague about her age, though she can't possibly be over 25. As a side note, she's quite unsettled by authorities, and won't act on their behalf unless she's sure it won't hurt someone.
There's also another thing, but it's a secret~. Meaning I'll PM it to elaborate.
Occupation: Concert pianist. She will gladly play a piece for anyone interested, and will even teach you some chords.
Sample sentences: Well you'd best be keeping your wits sharp. "Those who get too big for their britches will be exposed in the end." Haha, I crack myself up. X3 (World-play)
I find that quite fascinating! Mind telling this dame more about that? (conversation)
Well, I may not be an aristocrat, but I do try to please as many people as I can. And for simply 20 dollars, you can join in- nono, I'm just pulling your leg. ^_^; (Freudian slip?)
She doesn't have any royal lineage of the sorts, so most of her fancy speak is improvised and will occasionally make little sense. Occasionally.

Species with Smilie: Dunsparce
Gender: Jolly ol' chum (Man)
Personality: A naive but jolly middle-aged Pokemon. He tends to use a lot of self-deprecating gags, often making jabs about his blindness or short stature. Despite these setbacks, his nose is really, really, REALLY sharp. He can smell anything from old books to rare ores to seme... spaghetti from miles away, and almost effortlessly (He often uses scents to tell Pokemon apart). Not exactly a people-pleaser, but he enjoys the company nonetheless. In fact, he may enjoy it a bit too much.
Perhaps you could say he puts a lot of blind faith in others, pun intended. He's also willing to cooperate with authorities and, well, pretty much anyone without malicious intent... probably. Usually his nose distracts him from doing a job in an efficient amount of time, but do wait for him to pull through, alright?
Occupation: Miner; that tail of his is stronger than one would think. He always has his mining hat on, even though he knows full well the light is useless to him. It droops over his eyes, but hey, he doesn't use them.
Sample Sentences: Ain't that a bad way of thinking there? It's not because I doubt him that I'm saying this, but because I wanna' trust him... y'know? (Beliefs)
I suppose some people can just see farther ahead than I can. Because, y'know, eyes. (Telling a [subtle] joke.)
*sniff sniff sniff* ... ... Two dark-types, both girls, and.... a male grass-type. I find that guys have a sharper smell than girls, sort of like sharp cheddar, but it's definitely not a bad smell, you know. Oh, and they're all dead. (Sniffing out a crime scene)
stuff like "ain''t" and "y'know" are pretty much his only slurs, but don't abuse them too much. As with the last sentence, he drops the slurs when he's trying to explain something properly.

Name: Elysee (Ellie-sea) Species with Smilie: Sableye Gender: Female Personality: In a word, Elysee enjoys playing people like instruments in her game of life, using them only when she needs them. Elysee is also very dominant, and rather bossy, enjoying to be in the lead rather than being a follower to someone else. If she feels like her position of leadership is being compromised, she'll react in a usually brutish and dominant fashion. However, Elysee is also very comfortable in her own skin. She's able to express herself in the way she'd like around anyone, having an 'I don't care what you think about me' attitude. She's easy to get along with as long as you treat her with respect and a tolerant and understanding attitude. She's more likely to respect someone with a lot of intellect who's able to make an intelligent conversation, so try not to approach her with faulty facts and mindless drama.
Short Backstory; Elysee was born an only child, meaning she always got exactly what she wanted as soon as she asked for it. She grew up believing this was how others should treat her too, resulting in her extremely dominant and bossy nature. She was very rebellious in her teenage years, and still holds true to this fact. She'll always stand up for what she believes in, and will probably assert her opinion very firmly if you try to sway her.
Gender: Genderless, but has a feminine personality
Personality: Lux grew up in a dark mansion atop a lonely hill, only being comforted by the many toys her parents gave her while they were away. She was always a distant person, and treated her parents more as strangers than family, only being comforted by the dolls that she had grown up with. She turned into a fine, young woman who was always on the more gothic side, preferring the night and the moon. She never did grow out of her dolls, and always sang to them. She had a beautiful voice as well, a rare blessing to her. She can rub off as creepy or dark to some people, due to her constant seclusion and asinine muttering to herself. Though, once one gets to meet her, they realize how lonely Lux is, havign a void in her heart that would never seem to fill. She often sings to give her self solace, if she doesn't have a doll with her.
She treats others formally, but coldly as well. She isn't one who gains trust easy, and trust is one vital thing that she needs from a person when working with them. Lux does however, get a tiny bit warm when she is around another she trusts, and having her as a friend is something that you should cherish, as she charishes every friendship she ever makes, but if back stabbed, she will hold a grudge that will last the test of time.
Occupation: Opera Singer
Sample: I see that you're a fan of my voice, but tell me this. Why do you think you're special enough to hold an audiance with me? I simply give the world what I want to give it, that is all (Talking ot a fan)
Hello my dear friend, how are you fairing as of late? I know that you've been recently hit by a storm and lost some love ones, my condolenses (Talking to a friend)
Chicken... Moon...Potato.... You know Alice, isn't tonight such marvelous? Let me sing you a song (Muttering to herself, and talking to her dolls)

look forward to the future every day, because that's whats keeping me going. Tumblr
Personality: Devil is a family watch dog in his home, though he isn't very good at his job, because he gets distracted very easily. He's got a bit of a wandering mind, and being hyper, often tends to chase things: squirrels, mail deliverers, his own tail (which he occasionally succeeds, with painful results), etc. Besides chasing, he also likes burying things: Bones, squeaky toys, important evidence to the guilt of murderers... That sort of thing. He quite commonly pants and slobbers, and while he is able to talk, he kind of has a bit of a speech impediment which causes him to replace a lot of consonants with Rs (Rike Ris). Devil seems to be a music fan as he enjoys barking along to music, especially to songs played on the fiddle, which is his favourite instrument (maybe because it's a dead cat?). Most of the time he tries to do what he's told, but he tends to be too hyper to be obedient, especially because he goes crazy around food. Though one thing he's very good at is coming when he's called. He will always come when he's called. Even if his name is just mentioned and whoever said it had no intention of calling him. Even if you used the word "devil" without even meaning to talk about him in particular, if you speak of the devil, he'll- *turns around* Oh, hello, Devil.
: Row Ro You Ro?
Personality: Sapana is a psychiatrist who majors in dream interpretation. She is a specialist in the specific field of gustatory dream analysis, which is the analysis of patients’ dreams by tasting them. This is, as one would expect, a quite drowzee-specific field, and Sapana is the most skilled of such analysts due to her exceptionally acute palate. Utilizing this, she can taste her patients’ dreams, and use this information to figure out what causes them troubles and anguish, and quite often, what a solution would be to them.
Sapana often is supportive and helpful, ever offering a hand to anyone who has problems to help them fix it. However, behind this she holds slight troubles of her own. You see, Sapana didn’t choose to be a psychiatrist. It was long her dream to use her exquisite tasting abilities to enter the wine-tasting business. But her mother advised her against it, having barely won a fight against major alcoholism at a younger age (Sapana’s grandfather was a spinda and raised her mother by himself; like many spindas, he was quite fond of the bottle himself). So her mother pressured her to use her tasting abilities to help others instead. Sapana usually tries to be positive about helping people, but secretly, her own biggest wish would be to find someone who would help her overcome the pain that giving up her dream caused. Sapana finds it hardest to fight these feelings in the presence of wine, which will somehow cause her to let go and try some, despite her mother’s strictly forbidding her to consume liquor. Note that Sapana still always adheres to the policy of never getting drunk. To her, it’s the tasting that’s the pleasure, not getting hammered.
Sapana generally is pretty sharp in terms of how minds work, and can make pretty good guesses of how people are thinking, even before she tastes their dreams (which she never does to anyone who doesn’t ask for it). Sapana’s acute sense of taste can also be useful for other things, like, say, knowing exactly what’s in the food she’s served, including unsavoury plot-related ingredients, etc. That said, she’s more adept at giving words of wisdom and advice than forming strategies like a detective might be. So, she isn’t so much a chessmaster as a master of helping-people-get-over-losing-at-chess master.
All fear the vampiric ghost skeletal uber mr. mime caterpie!
Species with Smilie: Vulpix
Personality: She was born in a family of Ninetales who loved '80s culture, so she's really into the '80s culture, she also likes chewing gum, roller skating and just being ditzy. Due to being the first female (She now has 8 brothers and 3 sisters) she was named after their favourite female singer Samantha Fox.

He can talk to you willingly about stuff he likes but if he doesn't know said thing, then he'll query what it is. He was born in Genoa, Italy then in the age of 2 he moved to Chad, 6 months later he moved to England where he stayed for the next 34 years before moving here to be a singer.

Species with Smilie:
Personality: Almond is a reporter and is always asking the importent questions but she is seemingly invisible. In most situations she is ignored and her questions are almost never answered. She has grown a tough exterior but it doesn't do much as people rarely notice her. When someone does notice her she can come off overcoonfident and powerful. She appears like this because is she exetremely afraid of the male gender. So when someone notices her and break through her tough exterior she will be terrified of them if they are males.
Species with Smilie: Scizor
Personality: Kenneth has always been rather different from other Scizor. To start off he's shiny, which may sound great, but it's not. As a child, this caused him to be bullied and this is where his bitter attitude began to form. Each day his hatred and anger grew and he often spent his time alone in his room. Due to the inability to take the bullying, he ran away into the wilderness. There, he trained and all his anger was unleashed in his training. In the wilderness, he found a Galvantula and Volcarona, who became his new parents. To them, he showed his almost never seen caring and happy side. However, no one else has ever seen this side of Kenneth. Nowadays, he still has the anger from his youth burning inside him. His bitter personality has now led him to his current occupation, a "guitarist" by day, and an assassin by night.

Species with Smilie: Jellicant
Personality: Icarus exemplifies all characteristics of your regular english gentleman. He's polite, has a weird sense of humor, always wears a suit, hat, and an eye piece, among other things. He was born to a wealthy family over in Manchester, and from a young age has always had a laid back attitude to most things in life. Icarus fills his days with crochet, and regularly attends dances with his wife, Floreen. Despite his jovial outside manner, Icarus struggles with feeling of ineptitude, as he feels his life has been wasted. These feelings and the pressure to act right may induce some strange moments with him....
Personality: Sam used to be a studious nerd who would quietly sit at home and do his homework. He did not have many friends at the time and his mind always wandered to what life would be like if he had a social life. That moment came when Sam was exposed to a high school party. In fact, he enjoyed himself so much during that night that he dropped everything from his past to become more social with his peers. Now, Sam is a party animal. He drinks more, stays up longer, and does the crazier stunts than his peers. Though he is still a bit quiet and awkward when it comes to normal days, he enjoys a higher social status.
Species with Smilie:
Personality: Swizzle grew up competing with her siblings for the small amount of food her parents brought home. Being the youngest, she had to fight her way to the top or she would perish. She even had to survive in a sketchy environment ridden with violent pokemon. Joining gangs and partaking in illegal actions are what caused her to live through adulthood. Now, still an active member of gangs that both thrive and fall, Swizzle has adapted to be of a hardy and dominant nature. She will not back down on a physical challenge, no matter the cost and she is always taunting others with sassy or sarcastic tones that could bug even the calmest of pokemon.
Occupation: Gang member

Message me if you want a 6th gen battle!~FC:3909-8006-3272
Personality: Paz was born in a small, backwards Latin American country torn apart by a vicious civil war. At the age of 6, Paz and her mother fled their village when the battle came towards them. They went over the country's border to a convent that was accepting refugees. While waiting for word that the war was over, her mother fell victim to a strange illness. With no connection to her family or home, she was forced to live with the nuns. She was introduced to the ways of the Lord and within years her life revolved around her faith. At 18, she decided to leave the convent as a travelling missionary and spread the word of God. The memory of her childhood makes her kind and empathetic towards those down on their luck. Her devotion to religion, however, makes her resentful to those who sin and even moreso those who flaunt their sins. When in dangerous situations, her first course of action is usually prayer, followed by actual...y'know...helping.
(I almost added that she frequently talks in Spanish, but you would probably hate me if you had to go to Google Translate every time you wrote an episode)

Eventually, as he entered puberty, little bubbles on him began to grow, and before you knew it he had new siblings! However theses siblings were the worst thing that could ever happen to Greggs. They argued, and bickered, the only thing that they seemed to bond over was comic books and Dungeons and Dragons, which don't ask me how they read/played them with no hands because I have no idea, but they were happy, even though everyone else looked at Greggs as if he was crazy when he'd talk to his giant zit brothers.

Species with Smilie: Xatu
Personality: Sage is a loner, who prefers to spend time with his thoughts than with other Pokemon. Due to this, he has a reputation for over thinking things, and when he does decide to voice his opinion in a discussion, it tends to be overdeveloped and lack in common sense. He has a knack for remembering and/or noticing details that nobody else pays attention to, but if he has an opinion that he believes is right, he will hide it from others. When Sage comes out of his bubble of thought and attempts to be social, the result tends to be disastrous. He likes to show off when he is in a social mood, as he believes this is the fastest way of gaining friends or admirers, but most Pokemon dismiss his attempts at showing off to be childish and immature. Some subjects are touchy for him, such as arguments and first dates, as if one of these subjects is brought up, he'll cover his head and make noises that sound like someone being strangled until the subject is changed. He sees himself as a bright intellectual full of wonderful ideas that he preaches if he can't think of any new 'wonderful ideas', and again is dismissed as childish and immature.
I'll add another character later, glad to see the new MotR is up.
Name: Jeri D Redding
Species with Smilie: Munchlax
Personality: Jeri is a rather stupid woman, picked on about her weight, and her intelligence, the fact that she found her cousin Stephanie Christie attractive, and of course, her ginger-ness. Jeri tried to reshape herself into something different. She first tried being a worker at a gardening store, but was soon fired for calling her boss an Inferiorite. So she went on a journey to become a famous Youtube Let's Player, but due to her overusage of terrible puns, she got little to no viewers. So now she has decided to live her life the only way she knows how, as a Superiorite Pungeon Master.
Occupation: Superiorite/Pungeon Master.
