You know, I've always thought about this and I don't really see any RP's going through with this kind of idea. The idea is like a character goes through the Five Stages of Sorrow because of a death of a loved one or loved ones or lost someone like they leave forever but are still alive. Everyone has to basically go through with this because no one really lives forever like parents and grandparents. If you don't know what the Five Stages are, it goes in this order:

Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance.

Denial, a person goes through some sort of illusion that their loved one was still alive somewhat and thinks that everything is fine and same as before.

Anger, a person finds out that he had been lying to him/herself and becomes somewhat angry at what had happened in the past and shouts out his/her frustration as to why this had to happen. The person can take out his/her anger out on others, him/herself, or to the world/fate.

Bargaining, a person will bargain anything, even his/her own life, to give back his/her loved one back or postpone the death of the loved one, even though they are not God and can't bring back the dead or lost loved one.

Depression, a person knew that he had tried everything and begged to bring back his/her loved one, didn't work and he/she sinks into deep depression and sadness from the realization. He/she is still grasping the concept of death and the event.

Acceptance, a person is not happy at this part, but he/she accepts what had happened and either moves on or does not forget about it. They are not happy but they can at least no longer live in illusions and move on.

What do you guys think? Comment in here if you want to participate and tell what kind of sorrow that your character has to deal with. Or you can just leave feedback, whatever you wished.

Here's the accurate page of the Five Stages of Grief/Sorrow: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%BCbler-Ross_model

(Keep in mind what I just said is just for someone who's suffering from the death of a loved one, there are other things for the Five Stages such as children seeing their parents divorced, break ups, etc.)

Sounds a bit diferent to all the other roleplays. I find it interesting, if you create this roleplay my character will have lost a loved one, his old caretaker. Dular's parents were a bit mad :p thats why he had a caretaker (Character bio in progres :) )

Glad people are noticing it :) well I'll let you all know how I will sort all of this out, like will we view each character's sorrow in different segments? All together? Etc. I'm still thinking about that.

I think it is a good idea though not all people go through the stages the same way and some people skip stages all together just depending on life experience and many other psychological and emotional factors so it would be a character to character thing. For example many orc characters would be like ok a death....yea its important to die with honor did he do that oh ok then good or oh well thats sad well I won't be die that way. So it can be a cultural thing as well. For example any soldier would have a hard time after a war like the one that has happened to be going through those stages after so much loss they would be numb. This is just my two cents on the matter of this being an rp you would have to look for the right characters or do it on a person to person basis how each deals with it and goes through things or which stages and all that.

Yes I see your point. But still it was just something I thought up, and wanted to see if anyone wanted to join this kind of RP because it's different.

Alright I got an idea: I'll be playing a demon or someone within the world of the Five Stages of Grief and that person sort of 'opens' the truth in the eyes of those who are going through the stages. So here are the people interested in this:

Zirik, Yohannes, and Malcolm Ophicius.

I'll start it soon.

Good, I will likely do a character story first, and then my actions in here will be based off of that.

alrighty, I'll start it in the next two days, to give the guys who are interested in this some time to see if they are still interested in it by replying.
