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.

Hook, line and sinker. The very fact he wouldn't pass it back revealed how interested the priest was in the book. A smirk edged its way onto my face and I watched him, watched the way he handled the book.

Fifty thousand. Cash... My teeth made an appearance in my smile, much like a shark setting its eyes on a small but tasty fish. I put my fingers out, counting down a figurative list. Your personal help with finding whatever jackass tore up the leader's office, your word that I'm a good little Army of God minion, and my personal use of your private office in the future when I need it. I.. think that about covers it. I smiled again and lowered my arms, folding them across my chest. Oh no - wait. Also exempt from money charges to the silver bullets I use. Or just toss a few boxes in for free. Up to you. So, how does that sound?

Nothing about the journal was unique aside from the markings inside. False leather bound. What appeared to be standard ink in it's pages. No label or symbol on the front cover, or even on the binding. It wasn't eye grabbing or physically unique at all. Probably intentionally so. But what was scribbled on the pages within already had my mind swarming with possibilities. Possibilities to get me back into the organizations good graces. A way for me to turn my two weeks into another lifetime of oath bound alliance.

But when what she said next left her lips I nearly stumbled over my own still feet. I could physically feel my knees go weak. I was an understanding man, a forgiving man, but I was no fool. Her list kept growing and growing, and with each word, that patience I'd worked so hard to maintain since I was a child was slowly being chipped away with each demand. I was feeling swindled, and my jaw dropped and eyes went wide. I stayed like that for for a moment, wondering if she was going to start laughing and say this was all just some big joke, but she didn't... Ten thousand, I will help you find the culprit, and I will clear your name. But that's the best I can do. Considering even my offer felt like I was giving more than I was gaining, I felt it fair enough in her favor. Even if I did feel this was something she should have given to me free of charge. And had she have given it to me free of charge... She just might have earned most of the things in her list. If you want perks like an office and reduced prices, you will have to earn those like everyone else I am afraid.

The guy had obviously never been blackmailed for sure - that was certain. He was an ironic picture of innocence, the very first thing I'd found out about him as a person that made me dislike Helios since my snooping about his life. Considering some of the things I'd found out I'd been expecting something very different.

I shook my head and crossed my arms, my smile falling from my face but my intense gaze not missing a beat. I took hold of my shotgun within the large pocket of my jacket and made sure it was placed conveniently if the priest decided he'd give me a show of the knives I'd heard about. It always paid to be careful of the quiet, seemingly boring ones. I'd found they were always the people who turned out to be the most crazy or ruthless when the time came for it. Right. For a start, don't shit talk me about earning things properly as if that's what all you priestly hunter leaders have done because I know it isn't so black and white, so cut the holier-than-thou crap. And now I've got that out of the way... I think you'll want to reevaluate 'the best you can do' - unless you want Father Williams and all those other pious priests to find out about what you've been doing with Ginger... I stepped closer to the priest, getting up in his face, Mr Snow. I sneered. And don't worry, I'm very understanding. I'll even help you sort out a payment plan if that's what you need. My grin stretched back across my face. Time for his move... if he had any left.

I used my hand to push my hair back, and it slid down the back of my head to rub the shorter hairs on the back of my neck. I sighed, but that sigh turned into something else, I could feel it growing inside of me the more she spoke. Why are you a hunter? I asked her bluntly, refusing to tear my eyes from hers as I awaited what I hoped would be an honest answer. I wanted to know why she was a hunter, because right now I didn't feel she even really cared about the cause. I'd been in her shoes before, desperation made humankind do things they wouldn't have ever even dreamed doing. And I wanted to sympathize, but the past few weeks had been taking me down a dark path, and I felt like I was losing myself. Someone else was being reborn.

And then something very particular left her lips, and my eyes narrowed. I shoved my hands into the pockets of my jacket and still, unable to tear my eyes away from hers. How do you know about that... My voice was quiet, despite the volume of my mind. For the first time in a long time my poker face disappeared. There as tension in my brows, my fists were clenched and I was fighting to keep a grip on my patience. Like I said, it'd been a rough few weeks, and I wanted to be forgiving, understanding even of her situation, whatever it may be, but it was difficult when I was face to face with extortion. I can't do fifty, even if I wanted to. I admitted. Money wasn't exactly something I struggled with, but considering she brought this to my attention during my probational period, there would be questions if that kind of money just up and left my account. Twenty-five, max. And I'm sure that's plenty considering the rest of your extortionate demands are going to be met. I did not back down. I just stared at her, eyes still narrow, expression still less than dissatisfied with my current situation.

I laughed, a low chuckle as I kept up the priest's eye contact. Was he expecting a poor, sorry sob story? He was going to be disappointed. I licked at my lips and grinned. Because I get paid to do what I love. I replied, my gaze not wavering once but my mouth closing, smirk growing smugly. Shooting things.

I took a step away and turned round, confident I'd gotten Helios' attention and proven how serious I was already. I smiled widely and looked back to him. He didn't even bother denying it. I had him trapped like a little, tiny fly on a web, one that wasn't even struggling as the spider closed in. Watching, listening, waiting for opportunities. People talk. Whores talk, especially about clients like you. My lips pursed as I enunciated each syllable, making it clear that I knew all about his dirty little secret. 'Ginger' hadn't taken long to break and spill how much Helios freaked her out after I lent a kind ear... So many girls like her were easy. They were all dying for someone to listen to them, sometimes literally too. I'd never have guessed it, looking at you. But then it's always the quiet ones who end up being the biggest freaks... and sick kinks aren't exactly uncommon among priests, are they? I should be thankful I'm not dealing with some kiddy fiddler.

I turned back round on my heel and walked back up to him, right up to him, studying his face. Twenty-five cash up front... and ten per cent of your pay check each month, on top of everything else. I think that's more than fair... and a girl's gotta eat. And don't worry, I don't want people to find out about this just as much as I'm betting you don't.. wouldn't be much use to me if you got fired, would you, Helios? I looked him up and down, Oh, and don't try anything stupid, old man. I wouldn't want to mark that pretty face of yours, especially as it might get you all excited, huh? The control, the power... I loved it. It made my nerves feel alight, every fiber in my body alert and on fire in the best way. I thought it was better than any orgasm I'd felt - I never felt so alive when I was holding something over someone. I reach out and patted Helios' cheek, still smiling dangerously at him. And we wouldn't want that, would we?
