setting
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:
rules
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.

Gayle Shaffer | Vampire; Ancient

Ma'am was one of those things that made me realize just how much I'd perfected the art of changing my personality, and how much the times helped to mold it. There would have been a time when I would have accepted no less than ma'am, or maybe even thought that it wasn't formal enough. Now, I sought to shed the austerity. Ma'am in these times meant to be respectful but had warped into something moderately insulting, suggestive of old age. And my age was both a sense of pride and an insecurity. It was both empowering and isolating. I wanted to be new, but I never completely washed away my past lives. That was why I was here.

I didn't want to get my hopes up, and I never did, but Lillium seemed to know just the right thing to say. That was exactly how I saw myself, someone who couldn't sit idly by, and someone who was going to make the dreams and wishes of every one of my kind come to fruition. She along with many others would admire me so. And maybe my Noelle would be happy again. Maybe Noelle could add to that wall of photographs I had once seen in her apartment. Those photographs would serve her even better than these rare paintings served me. She was actually lucky, what a time to be alive, and what a time to begin a new life as one of us.

I took the card, briefly glancing over it and then smiling with a nod to Lillium. You simply have to know when to go, I assured her. I will be in contact, Ms. Ainsworth, I paused as I sensed the presence of another vampire, and I knew it had to be the artist behind tonight's gallery. The age felt appropriate. I must excuse myself, someone is here I need to speak with. I stroked her hand briefly, with a smile, something I genuinely liked better than the handshake I'd resisted earlier. I turned and quickly disappeared into the crowd.

"Yes, of course." I said softly, watching Ms. Shaffer move away through the crowd with my card still cradled in her palm. The lack of contact information offered in return for my own card didn't go unnoticed, but I had no doubt that that invitation still stood and that Gayle would, indeed, be in touch.

Once more I raised the glass to my lips, watching her disappear among the people thronging the gallery in likely search for the artist. I moved in a different direction, taking in the other works until the increasing crowds of warm bodies around me began to be too much. The sound of pulses began to ring over the susurrus of conversation in the large and echoing space, my mouth suddenly dry despite the liquid I sipped. I set my glass down and went to collect my coat, adjusting my hair over the collar before stepping out into the cold air. I needed to get home; or find a bite on my way there.
