The Asylum
To start things off, I would like to mention that I have recently severely cut down my involvement in games. While this means I will have plenty of time for this game, it also means that I will not be expecting more than 7-10 posts a week.

The Asylum is a freeform fantasy-nightmare game set in the world of Emilie Autumn's 'The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls'. Slight modifications have been made to the story line, most notably Emily did not become an inmate of the Asylum TWVG, as well as a modification of Queen Vic's era to include a steam-punk movement. This will likely do little more than flavour the game here and there, like a dash of pepper in a good soup.

Players will be taking up the roles of inmates in The Asylum. Whether truly mad or not is of little consequence, as we know that, at the time, a woman had to do very little to land herself in an Asylum.

"Who are you?"
"I am your Captain!"
"Where is this?"
"Awareness is the enemy of Sanity... for once you hear the screaming, it never stops."

Oh, I am interested in this, playing an insane character will be great for rp.

Right on, Purity.
Time to put on some coffee and get those creative juices flowing!

Interested. Will be busy today, so maybe no app today...

I'm intrigued. I will work out the details of an application later tonight or tomorrow morning depending on how my day goes.

Interesting. I've never heard of Emilie Autumn's 'The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls,' though.

Wicked. Application coming. I'm not familiar with the books either, what year in the 19th century does this take place in?

It's half autobiography, half fairy tale/delusion. It's a good read, more so if you're a fan of her music.

It makes me think of The Yellow Wallpaper. At least, the introduction you have here.
