With a nod, Louisa took the spy glass and pivoted on the spot. Breathing as deeply as her maroon corset would allow, she set down the aisle through the healing house of her village. The beds were all full of patients, the setting sun reflecting off of a variety of metallic body parts into Louisa's chocolate eyes as she passed each one. She hiked up her floor-length copper skirt and stepped out of the house and onto the wooden stairs, ascending quickly towards the roof.

Her father now injured, her mother still missing from her last quest, she alone could seek out their lost family heirloom. Reaching the top of the building, she fiddled with the keys that had been looped into her belt and hopped into the airship that was awaiting her. The deep, rust-colored balloon floated above the ship, attached with golden wires glimmering in the rays of light. The wooden deck was worn, but ready for another adventure to add to the list of treks the ship had seen. It had never failed her family. "And it never will," Louisa breathed to herself as she started the engine, steam puffing out from the back of the craft as it started to rise away from the roof.

"Onward and upward. No point in looking back. He'll be here when I return."


TASK
In pairs, your task is to roleplay a quest for a hidden object in a steampunk world. The object can be whatever you and your partner would like.

The only catch is: each of your posts must contain a literary device from
this website. In every post, you must use a different literary device from the list, and underline it to make it clear to see. You may repeat literary devices within your post, but it may not be underlined again.

RULES
1. All HEX and RPC rules apply.
2. You must work with one partner for this roleplay. You may not start a roleplay without first engaging a partner, as planning a roleplay should be a joint effort. However, please do not show your partner your roleplay posts (e.g., for proofreading purposes) before posting in the RPC.
3. No open roleplays are allowed. All roleplays should be closed to only two participants. Furthermore, you may only participate in one thread for this RPotM.
4. All roleplays must be created in the RPC and titled "[Closed to usernames] November RPotM". Please post the link to your roleplay in this thread.
5. Your roleplay must take place in a steampunk-themed world, whether it be an original or canon world. You may use original or canon characters, so long as the canon characters are from the canon steampunk world you're using.
6. Your roleplay must incorporate literary devices from the webpage linked above.
7. To be eligible for prizes and participation raffle tickets, each partner must make a minimum of three RP posts, and each of your posts must be at least 350 words in length according to Google Docs. A word count at the bottom of your posts is useful but not required.
8. All entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM HEX time on November 30th, 2019.
9. If there are less than three roleplays that meet the requirements, each individual participant who meets the requirements will receive a consolation prize of 5,000 Galleons and a ticket for the Participation Raffle. No other prizes will be awarded.
10. Please post any questions you might have in this thread or send an owl to
Kasey.

Best Steampunk World-Building: 1,500 House Points + 3 tickets to the monthly raffle (each)
Most Evocative Use of a Literary Device: 1,500 House Points + 3 tickets to the monthly raffle

I like the requirements. We could underline totally random stuff and start passionate literary discussions among the judges about what literary device it might be.

Steampunk is a genre that is generally new to me, but I'll give it a try.
Please tag if interested.

@snowleetah Does it have to be a different literary device each time or can you reuse them?

The main literary device that you underline must be different in each post. If you're using multiple each time, though, you're welcome to reuse some, so long as you definitely have a new one underlined in each post.

Iโ€™m not too sure what this means:

Can we create a Steampunk world and use CC? Or does the Steampunk world have to already exist?

Hi there! What we mean is, if you're going to use a canon steampunk world (so one already created by an author or TV series or movies or something), you can use characters from that canon world. Or original characters.

If you're going to do your own world, you should create you're on characters. Canon characters can only be used within the world they are canon too. So, for example, Harry Potter characters could not be used.

Hope that helps!
