The Mystery of Marie Roget by Edgar Allan Poe

The Mystery of Marie Roget author: Edgar Allan Poe

s were arrested and discharged. St. Eustache fell especially under suspicion; and he failed, at first, to give an intelligible account of his whereabouts during the Sunday on which Marie left home. Subsequently, however, he submitted to Monsieur G----, affidavits, accounting satisfactorily for every hour of the day in question. As time passed and no discovery ensued, a thousand contradictory rumors were circulated, and journalists busied themselves in suggestions. Among these, the one which attracted the most notice, was the idea that Marie Rogêt still lived - that the corpse found in the Seine was that of some other unfortunate. It will be proper that I submit to the reader some passages which embody the suggestion alluded to. These passages are literal translations from L'Etoile, {*10} a paper conducted, in general, with much ability.

About the Author

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.

The races (all are RPable) include: <br> (Major Races) <br> Humans: Do I really need to explain what a human is? The main advantage of humans is their adaptablity. <br> Elves: These are nimble, wise, and beautiful beings. They appear to be human, except for their small frame and pointed ears. Elves live for hundreds of years, sometimes even a millenia. They have a rich cultural past and have long memories. Elves tend to associate mostly with other long-lived rces, and only accompany humans if they have few other options. They are extremely wise and intelligent due to their long life-span and possess very refined senses. Their ability of sight makes them deadly archers. As well, they are skilled artisans and craftsmen, and when it comes to crafting artifacts of beauty, none are the rivals of the elves. <br> Dragons: Dragons are fantastical beasts, appearing as lizards with wings, horns, and elemental breath. They can vary in size, ranging from the size of a mouse to the size of a mountain. They are also colorful, coming in every spectrum of the rainbow. Some are even able to change color. They are known for both befriending humans and elves and ravaging their cities. They are also known for being quite wise, living for hundreds and thousands of years. <br> (Minor Races) <br> Dwarves: If you had to describe a dwarf in one word, you'd say tough, because that is exactlt what dwarves are. Tough. They live in Clan-based societies and live up to three hundred to even five hundred years. For the most part, dwarves live underground in giant cavernous cities, but can be found in most cities. They are characterized by their large beards, stout frames, and small four foot to four and a half foot tall bodies. Don't let their size mislead you, though. Dwarves are the toughest of the standard races. Their compact bodies are hard to hit, and if you do hit them, they barely notice it. <br> Nymphs, Nixies, and Pixies: Nymphs, nixies, and pixies are nature spirits, inhabiting forests and meadows everywhere. They have delicate, beautiful features, and are usually always female. Only pixies have wings, however. All are capable of minimal magic. <br> Argonians/Draconians/Lizardfolk: These are reptilian-like creatures, though built like humans. They have lizard tails, scales, a reptilian muzzle, lizard eyes, and sometimes horns. However alike seeming to dragons, they cannot breath fire and do not have wings. <br> Centaur: Centaurs are half-humans-half-horses. They are brutal, war-like creatures, skilled archers and swordsmen alike. Although they have a reputation of pillaging, they are reclusive, rarely befriending any other race. <br> Merpeople: Merpeople are half-human-half-fish creatures, with a human upper half and a fish-like lower half. They have beautiful features and beautiful voices, sometimes driving men insane with love. They inhabit all waters. <br> Kitsune: Kitsune are cat-like people, with a humanoid figure but with fur, a tail, and cat ears. They have excellent night vision and make deadly assassins. <br> Harpies: Harpies are bird people, with a human body, though their arms are also wings. Whatever their hair color is, that is what their wing color is. Often shunned by other races, they are wanderers, sometimes terrorizing humans. <br> [ Other races are available, though they must be accepted by a leader first. ]
