Index was once a small and close-knit community, but the town located on the western side of Washington state has grown in recent years beyond anyone's expectations. It is the ideal place for those who work in Seattle but can't afford the city's high real estate prices, and for others the natural beauty attracts them to the town. And Index truly is a beautiful place - surrounded by thick evergreen trees, tall mountains and glistening rivers and lakes. While weather is typically rainy with overcast skies even this does nothing to take away from the beauty of the town, and it is only highlighted further when the heavy snow graces the town and caps the mountains in winter. To many, Index would seem like a paradise. And yet lurking beneath this visual beauty there is more to this town than anyone might ever imagine...

Current Time in Index, Washington:
PLAYBYS: Sims from the games Sims 2, 3 and 4 are used to visually represent player’s original characters (no characters from within the franchise are allowed). But, you do not need these games to join and roleplay! If you wish, you can post a thread in our out of character / general forum and list as many physical details about your character as you wish. The members of Index will happily try and make a character for you, and you can choose which one you feel best fits your vision.

AVATARS: Avatars should display your characters face clearly and should be at least 200 pixels tall, and 200 pixels wide.

THREADING & POSTING: When threading with multiple characters, it is important that you post only when it is your turn. This can be acheived by taking note of who has posted before you, and remember you are to always post after them. If you were the thread starter, then it is your turn after the final person has joined your thread.

When creating a thread you are required to place a tag before the title. Here are a list of types of thread you can create and how to tag each one:

[Open] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, with no limit on the number of characters.
[Open - #] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, but there is a limit on the number of characters who can join. Replace the # with how many extra characters you will allow to join your thread.
[Private] Only specific characters can join your thread.
[Closed] This tag should be used for threads that only involve your character.

ACTIVITY: To keep threads moving, people are encouraged to post within three days when it is their turn. If you do not post within three days, and you have not asked people to wait for you, it is possible you will be skipped. Keep in mind this is just a suggestion. While we'd love for everyone to be active every day, we understand that real life and other hobbies are just as important, if not more. We want you to be active because you want to be, not because a rule is telling you to be.

MATURITY RATING: Public threads should all be PG. If roleplayers above the age of 18 wish to post content that could be could be considered graphic then it should be hidden from view using the [hide] [/hide] code, which will enable only those in the threads and administrators to view the content.

About Uncommon Grounds Coffee Shop

Uncommon Grounds is a private and very popular coffee shop. The interior is warm and friendly and so are the employees - most of the time! As well as selling a variety of coffee and such drinks, Uncommon grounds also offers locally sourced cakes, cookies and confectionery and has free Wi-Fi. The main coffee shop is open during the day and evening, however they often have local talent evenings - either booked performances or open mic nights - that run on into the night.

Mary Ann - Mid 50's
Mary Ann is the founder and owner of Uncommon Grounds. She always knows what everyone's up to, no questions asked, though if you engage her in conversation too long she tends to forget what she was doing. She uses the words 'hon' or 'dear' a lot when referring to customers and remembers people's favourite beverages and orders, often knowing what they will order before they have said anything. Despite her love for gossip Mary Ann is a very caring woman with an easygoing, friendly nature and she is often involved in community activities, fundraisers or politics within the town, doing what she can to help. She is very much a large part of the Index community, not just Northbrook.

Sebastien - late 30s
After the substantial growth in Index and of Uncommon grounds, Sebastien joined Mary-Ann to help the business run smoothly. Sebastien is quiet and appears serious, with a very dry sense of humour if he does speak. He mainly deals with accounts and the monetary side of the business though the open mic nights or live music performances are his responsibility and he will personally oversee them. Sebastien is a medium who does have use of necromancy powers and belongs to the Coven of Mediums in Index, often arranging meetings in the back rooms of Uncommon Grounds.
