OOC Information: Like any good opera, there's many a twist and turn and plot thread throughout the entirety of the story. And like any good opera, there's music. So here's the rules for this forum role play.
This is a rock opera. The setting is Ebonhawke. All actions and such are to be described by each player (if two players want to collaborate and make a post, go for it, then there can be a duet!). And each post MUST contain a musical piece. At some point in the description, the player's character must break into song while performing their actions.
Seeing how this is a rock opera, only rock/hard rock/heavy metal pieces will be allowed (though, a good R&B would suffice as well). As I don't expect everyone to be able to rattle off a rock lyric the likes of Led Zepplin, Queen, Meatloaf, The Who, or the Rolling Stones, previously recorded pieces are allowed as long as they compliment the actions that are taking place. At the end of the post, make a notation of the song used, and even add a youtube video if available.
As stated before, two players may collaborate on a post, as long as there is a song at some point in the action that makes sense with the actions taking place. Players are also allowed to bring in random NPCs to suddenly do backing vocals (and if you want to play the confused player who doesn't know what's going on, that's fine (then you can play the "how does everyone know the lyrics to this song" card). But at some point, that player must have that character break into song.
Multiple plot threads can be used here, if each player wishes to add some different directions, and always make sure that if a player wants to collaborate with another during the flow of the story (which, to be honest, I have no clue how it will play out), make sure to contact that other player and work to create a post.
I'll be making the first post here tomorrow night.
