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.

Worker bees swarmed the Index-Pickett Historical Museum. I’d dug deep into my bank accounts to garner the attentions of every independent cleaner, moving company, electrician and builder. The place wasn’t decrepit but it had suffered at the hands of a curator that liked things antiquated. The type of man that thought preserving history involved transporting clientele into the dark ages as soon as they walked in the doors. All the lighting appeared to be almost as old as the building itself, so I immediately begun replacing it all. Even as cleaners vanquished colonies of dust bunnies, the floor was continuously littered with ceiling debris and grit from various packing crates. Instead of dividing my workload into two sections, organizing and categorizing what inventory the museum already had and then bringing in parts of my own collections, plus on loan exhibits. I had just shoved everything into one very chaotic basket. Very unlike me.

Squeezing myself between packing crates I signed countless clipboards and touchpads to accept new display cabinets as well as new exhibit items. Simultaneously trying to decide what to keep, what to dispose of and what to send to another Museum or put into storage. The whole time my mind was stuck on the avalanche of occult paraphernalia that had been haphazardly stationed in the upper most section of the building. Two exhibits I knew were always going to remain the same. A homage to the Skykomish Indians who had populated the region well before settlers had and the influences of Gold Rush fever on Index and the surrounding small counties. Throughout the building I had found various animal skulls, some damaged, others pristine and had decided that one cabinet at least was going to contain the skeletal remains of animals found now and in the past within the Snoqualmie National Forest.

That’s as far as I had gotten because any thoughts of the forest made me think about that white tree. The shadow creatures and the pale delicate necromancer who I’d gotten into informal debt with. What was even a worse distraction was stumbling upon a selection of nymph-like statues in one storage room. Random pieces given the content of the rest of the museum and moving them upstairs myself had not only proved to be tiring but also tipped my thoughts to Michelle. They were practically naked and all had expressions that suggested they were Succubus in disguise.

Standing in the vast room that covered the entire upper most floor I knew I was going to need further help. The current staff were aging and hadn’t looked too comfortable when I had revealed my plans for renovations. They were comfortable with the dimly lit location as it was. Happy to drift in and out when it pleased them. What was going to be tricky would be attempting to hire not just someone who could take care of the main Museum of which all objects and information was public domain but a second someone who either knew about the supernatural or was a species not quite human.
