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:
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.

This thread is officially considered a no-posting-order thread. This means you are free to post whenever you desire, however there are some rules and guidelines you must follow in order to keep this thread running smoothly.

Please do not spam post, this means do not post consecutively one right after the other of the same character. Every post should be separated by a different character.

Please make sure your posts contribute. If you are making your entrance post or out post content is not nearly as important, however if you've already made your entrance post, please make sure you contribute to the thread in one way or another. I.E. Interact, give people something to reply to.

Wait for replies. Yes this thread requires no posting order, however if your character is interacting with someone, please wait for said person to reply before posting again.

Try to avoid writing very large posts. Entrance posts can be long, and out posts can be long, however everything in between should be on the smaller side. I understand it can be hard to keep it small when a lot is happening and your character has a lot to react to, and that is completely understandable and fine, but if you can, try to keep your posts on the smaller side so it's easier for everyone to follow.

Read. Because there is no posting order, make sure you read everything posted in this thread, as everything may be deserving of a reaction.

Venture off into your own thread with caution. Big group threads can be hectic, but they can also be a lot of fun, especially when there is no posting order. So if you desire to venture off into your own separate thread, do know that people may be enjoying themselves in the group thread and you may end up disappointed if no one joins yours.

Lastly, just have fun! And don't forget to link your characters outfit in your entrance posts!

Gunn Mansion

Attire Requirement:
Formal - Theme: ''Film Noir''

Decoration Theme:
''Frozen Castle''
The below images have colored borders to indicate which rooms they represent according to the layout image beneath them.

When your characters enter, their coats will be taken and they will be offered a glass of champagne, which they can of course decline and instead ask for something else, or head to the lounge themselves and order something more to their taste. The first room your characters will enter after leaving the entrance area, will be the ballroom which features live music and a dance floor, where most likely people will already be dancing. Tables surround the outer edge of the dance floor, for those who have either danced too much, or had too much to drink, or both. XD The dining hall offers a quieter setting where your characters can order something more filling to eat, and the lounge offers a quieter setting to enjoy a drink in comfort. <3
