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.

Hiking Trails | Sunny, but still with an early morning breeze for now | 8am


OOC Message


I stopped my steady, energetic climb on the upwardly inclined path, pausing to take a big, deep breath of fresh air. This was what Index had always been to me, no matter how much it had built up over the years - nature, the outdoors, birdsong, the rustle of foraging wildlife and most importantly, the clean, brisk scent in the air that Cali just couldn't beat. It made me feel alive. Every inhale was like a bite from a high-powered energy bar, though I had enough of those carefully packed into my backpack just in case, along with an assortment of other supplies.

I realised I was charging ahead too fast for Sof and waited for her to catch up, rocking on my heels with pent up energy. Quote Begin So, what do you think of hiking so far?Quote End I asked. My grin practically stretched from ear to ear. Quote Begin Amazing, isn't it?!Quote End

I was practically gasping for air as my knees started to tremble, so I lean up against the bark of a tree to gather my breath before trotting up the path to join Ru. This wasn't how my hikes usually planned out, I would march at my own pace and takes breaks to not only relax my breathing but to also admire the beauty of the foggy woods of Index; but this would not be the case with Ru as leader. Or I guess it just goes to show that I desperately need to get in shape, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

I glance up at him to see he finally got the hint to hold his ass up for me. I tilt my head back to the trunk and intake a gulf of air before pushing myself off and marching up the incline.  Oh, it's just a blast! I call out grinning, and throw two thumbs up. I really was having a great time though, I needed to clear my head and what's better than hiking with a good old friend, now roommate. Plus...I'm still having difficulty getting Benjamin out of my mind. It's almost to the point where I am seeing him everywhere. Hopefully today will be different, hopefully. Once I'm finally at his side, I jab my index finger into his chest.  You sir, need to slow your roll. If your evil plot is to leave me in the dust to be mauled by bears just so you get my house with the awesome wifi, it's not going to work. I have my eyes on you Hemmingway. I narrow my eyes at him, yet find a way to crack a smile.

Quote Begin Spoilsport!Quote End I shouted back as I watched Sof slowly walk towards me, sticking my tongue out at her. When she neared and poked me I grabbed onto her finger. Quote Begin My evil plan... is to get you fit!Quote End I grinned jokingly, but lowered my the power of my smile a bit and let go of her, but continued with the taunting. Quote Begin Which isn't going to happen leaning against a tree... but, if you need a break, we can take one, or up a bit further there's a fork in the trail with a bench.Quote End I grinned wide again, raising my eyebrows and inching forward again, trying to encourage Sof to push herself.

Quote Begin C'moon, I know you love your books and being inside, but out here is the kind of stuff people put into books. Hey - maybe it'll inspire you? Quote End I was still partly joking, but also thought that more fresh air and exercise couldn't do Sof any harm. Quote Begin You could write an adventure story about a dashing young man, expertly navigating his way through some wild forest...Quote End I slowly continued walking as I spoke, sidestepping so I didn't have to break eye contact with Sof.

My grin widened when my finger was snatched by Ru. That indeed is an evil plan. I nod my head, tucking my hands into my bomber jacket once he released my finger. I have a little bit of energy left me in, let's keep going. I didn't want to admit it, but now that I'm living with someone as active as Ru, I see many energized hikes in the future. I took a deep breath before pushing my boot off the dirt and continuing up the trail. 

At times I would use the trees as leverage to give me an extra boost if I felt the urge to rest again. I just need to keep telling myself that the view will be totally worth it. I'm going to be honest, Ru's remark really opened my eyes.  Wow...You make a really good point, Ru.  Luckily among the necessities I have packed in my bag, is my journal. Ru's point sparked a bit of motivation in the pits of my stomach, and it showed when I tried to match my pace with his.  Hmm, I wonder who that might be..\ I manage through the giggles.  Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever dabbled with an adventure story before...And I've written a lot of stories. I scanned the terrain as I try to recall any adventure stories that might stick out. But I come up with nothing.

I felt extra pumped as Sof agreed to keep going, but had to fight to try and contain my energy and not race ahead of her again.Quote Begin Yeah, I wonder...Quote End  I stopped and struck a pose, pouting out my lips and giving a bit of a gun show so Sof could get a headstart, walking casually out of the ridiculous pose with a grin and soon catching back up. Quote Begin You've seriously never written an adventure story? C'mon, I know I'm not exactly a bookworm like you, but even I know they're the best. Maybe today'll be the day you finally get started on one - with your main character already sorted, it'll be easy as pie.Quote End

We fell into step, side by side as I tried to pace my longer strides to match Sof's speed. It felt so exhilarating, being surrounded by trees that stood taller than houses, with just the faint birdsong and hint of running water playing as a soundtrack to the great, vast outdoors. Quote Begin So... what's happening with you, recently? It's hard not to notice that you've been stuck in your head more than usual.Quote End I smiled cheekily at Sof, raising one eyebrow at her. I had my suspicions Sof had a crush, what with her becoming even more subdued and preoccupied recently, almost distracted.
