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.

Shadow Manor (House 319) | Chilly, but calm | 5:00pm

It was a dark and dreary night.. Well, not THAT dreary, it was more relaxing honestly. The low hum of the radio buzzing away about the most unique news (Lions, Tigers and Vamipre sightings, oh my!) and the occasional christmas song to brighten the mood. Yes, today was the perfect day to conduct my new social experiment. I had my hopes that a subject, any subject, would have arrived by now. Did I not put out enough flyers? Would the payment of $200 not be enticing enough? Well, perhaps not to those in my neighbourhood, but that's why I extended the reach of my paper route towards the more... Ahem, more unfortunate districts.

Perhaps my mistake was in how I put them up; I was never a fan of staples, or tape, not even pins put justice in their placement. No, I had to make sure they were really stuck. So I plastered just about every telephone pole, bush, fence (and even a basketball hoop) with a thick industrial paste before slapping my special advertisement on them; bearing my award-winning smile and an offer I'm sure few could refuse. Yes, I'm quite sure that the officials at town hall will whine about property damage, but this experiment was about something so integral to the human psyche that minor matters of material goods were naught. Tonight I would find out about this "Christmas Spirit" that everyone was so talkative about. 

Thats all the radio could seem to spout about these days, songs about Santa and snow... And it isnt even snowing yet! But I didnt have a moment to lose, people were already giving me dirty looks today when I was out and about. Whatever this christmas spirit was, I had to have it; there was no other option. Alas, all I could do was wait and pace about in my socks (I had lost my shoes in an earlier incident and I didnt quite feel like digging out a new pair of shoes from my walk-in closet).

To give myself peace of mind, I flopped down in my favourite armchair; the leather whining slightly from it's friction against my suit. A gloved finger of mine cut the radio off with a flick of my finger and I closed my eyes, projecting my thoughts outwards. I'm no psychic or anything, but it's reassuring to remember the details of my sweet little home. The white siding, topped with a black roof and a metal chimney. Spots of green brushery peeking out from between the house and the curious U-Shaped pavement, connecting to the street at the ends. Within the U, you (or u?) could find a peaceful little garden; soon to be smothered by the chilly embrace of winter snow, but for now sported several plant variants. Berry bushes, fruit trees, even a nice tall evergreen growing in the center. I kept it all as more of a hobby than actual sustenance, but I still made sure it was all accessible by an inlaid cobblestone path.

I would have to remember to dress up the tree later on, as advised by the christmas specials that I had watched as part of my initial research into the phenomenon; but I had time to wait. I wondered if anyone would come so late at night, but I had to keep hope. As they say, tis the christmas spirit.
