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.

Sooner would have been better, but of course I wanted to get things right. Perhaps it would give me more time to obtain blood. The more I spoke with this man the more I wanted to learn, but on my own of course. He was providing a framework whether he knew it or not and I would simply build on it. A week would be very helpful, and would give me time to obtain anything that might be helpful. I felt more relaxed and it was a strange realization but I came to find that some of the mild intimidation I felt was yes, his wealth, his knowledge, etcetera but in actuality some of it was the fact that I had been reclusive by nature. The conversations I’d had in the last few months had been with the dead. Maybe some pillow talk with Michelle, if you could call it that, some romantic gestures with Claire and I was grateful not to worry about that anymore. I might have burned a bridge there but it wasn’t a very useful bridge to begin with. And Logan. Although I didn’t feel I was necessarily finished with Logan Byrne. Going back to my point, the more I spoke with this man the more comfortable with the normal conversation I was feeling. The easier it was for me to feel the most “normal” I’d felt in ages.

It’s not like I expect a stranger to clear their schedule for me. You’re doing me a favor. I can protect Sof-... Her. I took another sip of my water and picked up the menu again, re-examining the choices now that I was feeling that emptiness in my stomach. Protein. I needed protein. Chicken club? Bacon? Cheese? Done. I returned the menu to the table and looked up to him at his words. It wasn’t his expression; that was now  hidden behind his lady drink. It was the tone in his words that were so familiar to me. I didn’t feel that sadness now; I had hope. I wouldn’t even call it faith because faith was reserved for the unknown and my plans were a sure thing. But I did understand his pain.

I’m sorry you’ve felt that kind of pain. Perhaps too forward, but I tried to keep it vague. Should we move on? I hope you still have an appetite, I’m starving.

Saying I was not hungry was the understatement of the century. If it was possible for a person to exist without a stomach, I was currently walking proof. Mentally beating myself up for getting mixed up with another Necromancer after avoiding them for so long made me sick. Once upon a time I’d had them as customers, I’d even had one as a friend and then my eyes were opened. Disposing of Necromancer based artifacts hadn’t been something I’d been willing to do. So unfortunately, I did have products that would be of use to Shane. Even though there was no contract that literally bound me to this transaction I couldn’t and wouldn’t back out of it. No matter how much it set me on edge. I didn’t and couldn’t know whether Shane was genuine or not. Whether he was hiding the true nature of a Necromancer or really was an exception to the rule. The rules had to be absolute.

“Better give me your number so closer to the date we can nail down a time.” I just had to regard this as any other business transaction. I didn’t have to think so deeply about this. We didn’t need to eat food and talk about my upcoming family Christmas or share ghost stories. Least of all did I want to register his sympathy about my experiences with Necromancers. Not only did I not want to talk about such painful memories, he would certainly bringing up the rear of any imaginary list of people I would have that conversation with. All the relief of seeing someone I loved was now forever tainted.


“Wish I had the time but I have a lot to do before I start work….as in my other job.” Giving him a genuine grin I stood up and straightened out my clothes, running a hand back through my ice blonde hair. “I’ll get everything prepared and then flick you a text, I always have my phone on me, always.” As a customer in the middle of a contract, he was entitled to twenty-four-hour assistance. It said so on my business card.
