The Supernatural Carnival
« on: October 31, 2019, 10:07:20 AM »
Post your RP links here!
instead of us all having a single massive group RP that's difficult to follow


Getting To The Carnival
  • If someone lives in the caravan park, they'll have to use the back road.
  • The private road that leads to the carnival grounds is long and goes through some light forestry.
  • Around the first corner is a Ward roadblock. They are wearing their SECURITY emblazoned uniforms.
  • Every vehicle is stopped and the driver is chatted to in a friendly manner about the private function
  • Ignorant folks are turned back around and have to drive out
  • People in the know (whether by invitation or a mention of an advert in the paper/mag/online) are let through
  • There are Wardens patrolling the borders of the not-completely-fenced carnival grounds
  • Visitors to the caravan park will find it difficult but not impossible to access the carnival

At The Carnival
  • Two huge grassy fields are setup for parking with several attendants showing people where to park.
  • One of the fields is directly opposite the front gate. This will be the first parking spot.
  • The second field is farther down the private road, closer to the caravan park. About a five minute walk.
  • A fence surrounds most of the carnival grounds. Sometimes wooden, sometimes chain-link, sometimes not a fence but a ditch (and where people might be able to sneak in).
  • The front gates are wooden and large, and are open all the way and tethered to itself
  • Just inside the gate to the left is an area that during the daytime has a blood-bank van to take donations. Everyone who gives blood will be given a Donor Showbag (refer: showbags below)
  • Just before sundown a Brannigan's van (the 'blood cafe' that operates at the Academy) will arrive - they stock animal blood for free but also have whatever donations have been taken by the blood-bank next door
  • IMPORTANT: There are signs everywhere banning vampires from direct drinking while at the carnival
  • Food Trucks - Hot Dogs/Corndogs, Hamburgers, Cheese Toast, Ice Cream, Coffee/Tea, Pretzels, Funnel Cakes, Doughnuts, Cotton Candy, Popcorn
  • Food Stall - Snacks & Slushies (Lots of packet stuff like chips and such, bottled drinks plus slushies)

  • Food Stall - Very Vegan (A selection of dishes as the name suggests)
Cute 3m x 3m tented stalls (unless otherwise described) with either information or a place to sit if necessary.
  • Information Kiosk
  • Join the Ward - A recruiting style stall for Ward signups

There is also a display board declaring what times Ben will appear: 7pm-8pm and 11pm-1am.

  • I have NFI, if you want a particular sideshow game, just write that it's there :cool:
  • At the duck-fishing stall, if a punter picks 3 ducks and still scores less than 10, they win a booby prize. Said prize is a cheap pen with the words 'BOOBY PRIZE' printed on it and a spring-loaded bobblehead at the top that looks exceptionally similar to Jake McCloud
