There's a place I'd like to go somewhere out west
It's not specific, and the pictures show it best
I know there's trees, I know there's sand, I know there's grass
I know it's somewhere in the past

-MGMT, Love Always Remains

You find yourself in a dark place. The sky is covered by dark clouds and the only vegetation aside from the dry grass seems to be some thorns and bushes. There also appears to be a foggy swamp with some reeds behind that hill over there. You can't remember how you got here. In fact, you can't remember anything. You gaze down at your paws and notice that it's too dark to see them properly. As you lift your head, you notice the black silhouettes of two nichelings with glowing white eyes approaching you. You consider running away, but they seem to be the only ones who could provide an answer to your growing amount of questions.

-Another one? This soon?

-It was like this the last time, too. You returned at the very end of it.

-Do you think this will end the same way?

-...

-Hey, you! Uh... we're sorry you're here.

-He's trying to tell you that you're dead and everyone forgot about you.

-Guiding! You can't just say that!

-But it's true.

-Yes but you can't- You have to say it nicely! Its a really though thing to hear!

-That's just the reality of how it is and we're all living through it. No need to soften the truth.

-Anyways, uh... You should come with us. We'll explain everything and get you introduced to a few people. You might even like it here!

 

Place of the forgotten ones is a roleplay where no one can remember anything about themselves or their past. Each nicheling is a silhouette and the only thing standing out is their glowing eyes. Getting lost could easily mean wandering aimlessly forever. The glow in a nicheling's eyes gets fainter the longer they go without having any sort of interaction with anyone as even the forgotten forget them.

Many will of course have the goal of remembering, as having your past be an empty void can be an overbearing burden. Nichelings may remember small bits, like what a warm summer morning smells like, or what it felt like to be next to their mate. However, fully recovering one's memory without knowlegde of their name is impossible. And names are lost to time...

Whenever a nicheling gets a small bit of memory, their eyes flash a color. This color is usually the eye color they had when alive or a color that is of significance to them. Their eyes will then stay a very light, almost white shade of that color. At first it's barely noticeable, but as they gain more memories the color gets brighter. If a nicheling goes a long time without gaining more memories, the color will slowly fade (as will the memories).

The third era is sort of a soft reset to the roleplay, with events of the previous thread remaining canon but having happened a while ago. This is due to a lot of the previous members having left the forums leaving their characters possibly getting lost. If you had a character in the old thread, you are free to migrate them here.

 

To join, submit a silhouette. Draw one of your nichelings in silhouette form or make a new character for this purpose. Don't reveal which character it is to other players. The idea is that no one remembers anyone. Don't use names, but your nicheling may gain a desription after interacting with others. This description can then be used in the place of a name when referring to the said nicheling.

(Starting out with a nicheling who's previously gotten lost is also an option now (just don't kidnap other people's unused characters without their permission lol). This means that not only does the nicheling have to regain their memories, they also need to rediscover avareness and their sense of self)

(I'm open to suggestions for a better, less confusing name. It's currently called the third era because the Guiding has the longest reaching memory out of the nichelings currently there and she can remember the two previous eras, those being the old rp and the time before it)

Fangs awoke from his foggy, dreamless slumber. He wondered for a moment, trying to find a reason for this. The swamp was dark as usual, with a thick mist hanging in the air being the only notable weather condition. It was quiet aside from the sound of the swarming bugs. Still, in a way he couldn't explain, there was a shift in the air. Something was different.

He got up, careful not to wake up Guiding. She'd just worry about him getting lost like she always did when he went out by himself. Her worry was pointless. He wouldn't wander off. Not again. Not after he'd already lost himself once.

Besides, he didn't have a reason to go anywhere. Everything beyond the hills was just the same dull landscape over and over again. Even if he were to run into someone, they'd be a lost cause and he'd be lost himself before ever having the chance to lead them back home. Guiding's company was all he needed. He only hoped she'd feel he was enough as well.

As he got up the hill the reason for the change of athmosphere became apparent. Off in the distance stood a shadowy figure with a glowing pair of eyes.

 

(wow my rp skills have really rusted since the last thread lol)

(I don't want this to start without me so I'm just gonna sublit like before. Maybe I'll do a silhouette if this thread doesn't die. Also anyone feel free to draw one for me and I will probablyy use it!)

The silhouette of this nicheling shows a short snout and runner legs, with spikes on their back. They appear to be fully grown.


-They're generally adventurous.

-Is drawn to water, gets a specific scent when near it, and sometimes sees things around and in it.

-Eyes sometimes flash black, and sometimes flash blue.

The spirit opened their eyes, and slowly got up from their sprawled-out position on the ground. Their mind was almost as empty as the space they were in. They stood there,  bewildered, foggy. 

The spirit sporadically felt as if they were floating. They felt almost not even there...
