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.

[Private] Underground Meeting

Sitting quietly at a wooden table, I waited patiently for Nicholas to arrive. I had made sure to clear a volume of space for his arrival, though I was sure he would be careful. Nicholas was a very cautious warlock and very exacting in his methods. I think that's why we got along so well when we first met five years ago in the Newham borough of London. A nest of fledgling vampires had started feeding unchecked upon the local population, and our meeting was entirely coincidental. For several hours, we had each other's backs, warlock vs vamps. Thinking back on it, it almost seemed more like a John Woo movie than a real memory. I never learned exactly why he was there that night. As for me, I think I was feeling particularly self-destructive at the time.

I glanced at the white stone walls that lined the cellar. There were four alcoves that branched off the main room, each about ten feet square, and each with a small wooden table and a few chairs. She even had candles on the tables. I smiled at how quaint it all seemed.

Edith Lewis had established the Measures of Thyme shop as a neutral ground for warlocks and witches to be able to meet and parlay in peace -- the sigils of peace and fellowship were all over the shop, if you knew how to look for them. I had only just barely noticed as I walked past the shop one evening, and she was friendly and kind when I inquired about them. I wondered just how many warlocks might have visited her shop or used this cellar. It was hard to guess, Index had exceeded all expectation.

The cellar seemed perfectly safe, but I was sure to sense for enchantments, all the same. Nicholas and I were friends, but I didn't want to test our friendship by unwittingly luring him into a trap. I knew he'd check for them himself as soon as he arrived. The walls were treated with some faintly magical powder that repelled groundwater. I could sense from the groundwater concentrations around me that cellars in this part of town were rare. Everything else checked out, clean as a whistle. I felt a little guilty for not trusting her.
