• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A post-to-play forum role-playing game on the Wayfinder Experience forum, created and run by Klawz. The story takes place in the fictional village of Babylon, NY. It revolves around a group of middle school students and their teachers.

On hiatus as of March 20, to be brought back after Electric.

Player Characters

  • Levi Haystead: An introverted nerd who was raised by his parents to be strictly Christian. Associated animal: Horned Owl
  • Hayden Newbury: A constantly bored dreamer who can't wait to get a chance to leave the small town.Associated animal: Caterpillar-as-Metamorphosis.
  • Akira Date: A Kamen Rider Expy who lives a rather normal life, with better-than-average grades and a tendency towards kindness. Associated animal: Fox

  • Aidyn Gainey: An artistic boy with a Dead Little Sister and a talent for music. Associated animal: Kestrel
  • Faymek: A New Transfer Student who is looking for a group to join in with immediately, but is picky about his friends.
  • David Gost: A drifter with friends in every social group. Not a part of the adventurers' party.
Tropes used in One for Sorrow include:

  • Five-Man Band: The heroes seem to be shaping up into this.
    • The Hero: It remains to be seen who will become leader, though one will doubtlessly emerge.
    • The Big Guy: Levi Haystead is the largest candidate for the position, although that has more to do with his intense belief, rather than any physical strength.
    • The Smart Guy: Nearly all the players could fit into this category, but probably either Erica or Levi.
  • Teasing Creator: Klawz makes a habit of giving cryptic hints in out of character conversation. It's gotten to the point that he's been known to compare himself to Andrew Hussie jokingly.
  • Perspective Magic: Used at one point with a small dreamcatcher, for an unknown reason.
  • Upgrade Artifact: Totems. They reflect aspects of people in the form of animals, and give power boosts to their possessors.
  • Urban Fantasy: At least at the beginning.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Hayden Newbury.
