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.

The time after Ben left me alone in the hospital was a blur. Somehow I made it home alive despite the tears on my face and the rain that had started to come down in earnest as I drove home. When I pulled in to the drive my beloved home stood eerily in the dark forest. I didn't bother to pull in to the garage and instead stumbled through the rain to the door. I felt cold and weak yet the tiredness I was feeling at the beginning of my shift had faded.

I was soaked from the rain and my own tears but I didn't stop to remove my shoes or coat and instead dripped water through the house as I went from room to room, turning on every light and television and radio that I could find. I don't know what I was thinking except that I didn't want to be alone in a cold, dark, silent house. When I'd finished my first task I turned on the gas fireplace in my living room and stripped off my wet clothes so that I stood naked in front of its dry heat.

I took the afghan I kept draped on the couch and wrapped myself in it. I folded my body until I was in a ball on the ground, my wet hair leaving a puddle of moisture on the rug, and I cried. Why God? I asked, over and over.

When my tears finally stopped flowing I sat up and stared into the depths of the fire. How could it be so cheerful when all I felt was despair? What am I going to do? I asked it, my voice hoarse from crying. At first, the question felt rhetorical. Like there was no answer.

But there was. And it wasn't just going to fall from the sky. I had to choose what I was going to do. Was I going to let Ben control me just because he had become a monster? He had allowed himself to be controlled, but I was not. I was going to find this 'Army of God' and I was going to ask them for help or join them or something. Ben would not have done this to me if he had not feared them, and with a name like Army of God they could surely help me.

I'm going to St. Paul's, and I'm taking Ben down.
