[Jost Gravity Falls meets Little Hope.
Set in 1972.
Somewhere in Salem, is a place with a dark history, a paranoia that pervaded a settlement at the centre of the 17th-century witch trials. But now the town has been restored and turned into another historical town filled to the brim with plenty of history.
Cold Springs is the name of the town. A small town of only 600 in Salem, Massachusetts. Plagued by the witch trials that killed 50 innocent people, including women and children, in 1692. Some say the town is cursed and haunted by the spirits of those who died. The town is slowly dying due to the shutdown of multiple factories and important workplaces that kept the town afloat, forcing many of the town’s residents to pack up and abandon the town in hopes of better opportunities elsewhere, though many still remain, clinging on to the last bit of hope they have left for the town itself.
[u [b Cold Springs Notable Landmarks]]
[u The Black Cat Bar] - The town’s one and only bar where you’ll find half of the town’s male population. Sells the once iconic alcoholic beverage - Witches Brew.
[u The Church] - Built in the 1800s after the original church had mysteriously burnt down.
[u The Museum of Witchcraft] - The town’s original church remains renovated and turned into a museum. This historical church once offered information on Cold Springs past, especially its sordid history dealing with witchcraft. Still up and running, but dying alongside the town.
[u Execution Site] - A gallows where most of the witch trial executions took place. Said to be the most haunted part of the town and many of the residents steer clear.
[u Massacre Memorial] - A place to remember all those were wrongly accused of witchcraft and sentenced to death. The second most haunted place in town, but many still visit, unlike the execution site.
[u The Graveyard] - Split into two. One side of the graveyard is for the more recently deceased, the other is for all those who died during the witch trials. The third most haunted place in town.
[u The Courtroom] - Where all those who were accused, judged, and sentenced in 1692. Rarely ever used anymore for modern crimes, and mostly just functions as another historic landmark for tourists to visit.
The rest is what you’d expect for a small town; the local grocery store, another historic landmark dated back to the 1600s, the police station, the timber factory, and the local homes.
So, I imagine this to be a paranormal story that follows themes of ghosts, witchcraft, satanism, and possibly cults too. The town is highly religious and still believes that witchcraft is evil and of the devil, including astrology, paganism, and more. I imagine that there are a few people in the town who have gathered together to form a small cult centred around hunting down and prosecuting accused witches. But that won’t be the centric plot as our characters will be discovering the secrets and mysteries of the town along the way, including the origins of the supposed curse, possibly paranormal activity, witchcraft, and satanic imagery too.
This will be following at least two or four people who live in the town and are interested in the history surrounding the town enough to want to seek it out. I will accept one character being a visitor or tourist to the town instead of living there if you want to go in that direction with someone.
[b ROMANCE] is allowed but should never take over the actual plot. I also ask that the romance is a slow burner and at least realistic enough to be believable. If I feel that two characters aren’t fit for each other and have zero chemistry, I won’t continue their romance. PM me if you want to romance any specific characters.
[b CHARACTERS] can be whoever you want. I ask that you at least make a small and vague profile for them in your application. I just want to make sure the characters actually suit the role play. I also ask that you be open to doubling and playing as multiple side characters as I will be doing this too. I will not be responsible for every single character in the role play apart from your single one. Characters can either already know each other prior to the role-play or be strangers, but this is a small town with only one school, so they’ll most likely at least be aware of each other’s existence.
[b POSTING] should be at least once a week, but I’m extremely understanding. I will wait for at least a month until I lose all interest in role-playing further with you. Communicate with me if you are struggling to post.
[b THREAD] is open for a lot of planning and development, and because of that, I ask that you are open for regular communication and plot development with me. I will deal with all the big stuff, but if I’m the only one creating conflict and moving the plot forward, I will grow bored and lose interest very quickly.
[b MATURE CONTENT] such as explicit language, death, violence, intimacy, and disturbing topics are always allowed in my role plays as long as you abide by standard ES rules. If anything ever goes too far and you are becoming uncomfortable, always let me know.
