Hello, and thank you for even taking a look at this recruitment thread in the first place.
I will try to be as brief as possible, as most of the pertinent information regarding the RP can be found in the OP of its OOC thread, to be perused if you decide that the broader idea of the RP interests you. You are also always welcome to ask any questions you might have, and I will try to answer to the best of my ability.

Why a recruitment thread now?
This recruitment thread is being posted now in part because March 10th has been the date of the annual event “Return to Yharnam” since the game came out, and though I cannot track down any information regarding the event being repeated this year, I still hope the timing will mean that any Bloodborne enthusiasts out there are reinvigorated about the game and its lore. Ironically I realize that it might also mean that these very same Bloodborne enthusiasts may be playing the actual game rather than spend their time here, but I'm still hoping to catch some interest.
The reason the recruitment thread being posted at all, meanwhile, is due to it having lost practically its entire cast of players since its beginning over a year ago. Each disappearance came with its own explanation, though several seemingly just disappeared without a word. You will pick up the story where the old cast left off, and I will let you be the judge of whether this is a deal-breaker or not.

Setting
Night of the Hunt takes place about five years after the events of the game, and starts out in a mostly rebuilt and revitalized Yharnam. Scarred by the horrible events of the Night of the Blood Moon (the IC way of referencing the events of the game) the city and its infrastructure has changed some, though blood ministration and -healing remains the primary features that lure newcomers to the lands. The Healing Church was essentially founded anew, since the old church was all but annihilated, but has also fractured into two fractions: the White Church and the Black Church, each with their own virtues and agendas, existing in a fragile state of peace. The Vilebloods have resurrected, stronger than in the game, and new insurgent factions – the Fire Dancers, the Harrow and the Followers – have emerged, all fighting the church and each other, while simultaneously contending with the ever-present scourge of beasts.

Story
Night of the Hunt is, as will become evident in due time, not limited to one night; it will become clear that another paranormal event akin to the Night of the Blood Moon is taking place, causing this night to last indefinitely until forcefully ended. This occurrence coincides with the Healing Church having just conducted a major experiment, in which they tested a discovered means of artificially creating Paleblood Hunters; Hunters who are linked to the Hunter's Dream, like Gehrman, Eileen the Crow, Djura and the player in the game. They tested this on a large amount of subjects, all gathered in one place, and all who slept the sleep of metamorphosis. These Hunters resurrect from death, can relatively easily traverse the borders between the Waking World and the Nightmare, and they can perceive things from the Nightmare... but these “false” Paleblood Hunters are not perfect replicas of the real thing, though the exact consequences of this will be for you to discover.

Players
I have heard multiple times from various players I have played with that they either don't feel like they are on my “level”, or that of other players, in terms of writing quality, or that they end up taking a long time writing posts to produce something they feel is worth posting. Others yet have downright declined posting at all because they feel that they don't have “enough” to write about.
I get the feeling that this RP being in the Advanced-section comes with a stigma of expectation, but I want to put this here so you know: while I appreciate good writing, reliable posts are more important than long posts, and good roleplaying is more important than impressive writing. It is okay if you don't have much time or energy and can only muster one or two short paragraphs once in a while; it is okay if your character don't have much input to the situation, anything is better than nothing.


I think that about covers my sales pitch for the RP. Finally, for your consideration, I decided to include a longer IC teaser portraying the RP world in action. Please note that this is not representative of my expectations of you or my usual IC posts, and can only be written like this because I play every character in the scene. My posts will almost always be significantly shorter than this.
Enjoy.

Are you guys still recruiting? I've had my eye on this game for a while and just recently started seriously playing the video game again (didn't get very far the first time) so I figured now might be a good time to throw my hat in the ring. I'm just going to warn up front though that I'm heading into finals season so I'll try to post frequently but I can't make promises in that regard. I'm also more at home in the casual section of the site but I'll give it my college try at writing above my weight here.

Yes, the RP is indeed still open to new applications and recruiting. Don't worry too much about the advanced tag on the RP; as I already wrote in the interest check writing ability (and/or willingness to put in huge amounts of effort) isn't paramount, and not being constantly active is also acceptable as long as you keep us/me informed so that people don't end up waiting for you to post before doing so themselves, and (in extreme cases) allowing some mild puppeting of the character to keep the story moving.

Feel free to throw in an application over in the OOC whenever you like, and to speak up if you need information or advice.

@Dark Jack I'll try to get something up soon-ish. Got a lot to read through in that OP first post before I really have a lay of the land.

@Dark Jack Sorry for the double mention here but I have a quick question after reading through all the OP stuff. If I play a human from the start, am I able to become a False Paleblood hunter or am I only able to become a regular hunter?

It is possible to be infected with false Paleblood before becoming a Hunter, thus effectively making you a false Paleblood Hunter, yes... though it will probably be a lot more challenging. The batch of false Paleblood Hunters currently under metamorphosis or in the currently active scene were created en masse as a test of the treatment, to see how well and reliably it worked across a broad range of subjects. Anyone receiving the treatment to become a false Paleblood Hunter henceforth would do so after the procedure had been tested, meaning that the Healing Church would already know that it has a high probability of working, which in turn will mean that the church will be a lot more selective about who they decide to effectively turn into immortal soldiers.

A character would need to either be very highly favored and deeply trusted by the Healing Church to receive such an offer (as opposed to just being made a Hunter, which they would be much more eager to accept), or they would need to steal the means to infect themselves with false Paleblood and then become a Hunter.

Oh! Gtocha, sorry I had it mixed up on how how false palebloods were created. I'm gonna think about it because I like the idea of playing a human who's completely outgunned with all the stuff going on but long-term I'd like to explore the mysteries of false palebloods.
