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.

I studied Kai with a look of annoyance on my face, what other option is there? If Kai thought I wasn't afraid at all, then he was wrong. It was important to have a little fear, but it was also important to stay calm. It wouldn't be at all helpful to anyone if we were to panic because that was completely unproductive. The only option here was to move calmly and rationally towards solving the problem. If I lost control of my emotions and my powers then I would become a problem myself. I could understand why he was frustrated, but that didn't mean that it was the best response to the situation.

My expression relaxed at his apology. I was being too harsh on him anyway. I'd had my own struggles with my emotions and powers. I couldn't- didn't expect Kai to have it all figured out all the time. His impressive library was helpful in itself even if he didn't have the expertise that I wanted in a partner. Finding that kind of expertise would mean finding another necromancer anyway and if that necromancer was someone like my mother then I wasn't sure that that would be any better anyway. Whatever was happening with the book the text message was nothing outside of what many warlocks experienced when training and dealing with their power. It required work to achieve mastery of any skill.

I listened to his suggestion and explanation silently, lips pursed. What exactly does this entail? I couldn't even begin to imagine what I would ask for in return if I were to accept his offer, but I wasn't really sure what he was asking of me. He said that he wanted to see the shadow people, so would this tether give him that power? Would it be like he was getting some of my power? Would I get any of his fire magic in return? How closely would we be tethered? Would he be capable of other death and life magics once we were bound together? Was it even safe? If he couldn't control his own fire magic then was it safe to give him death magic of any kind? I would need to know a lot more about what could possibly happen with this type of magic before I agreed to anything, despite his offer to give me whatever I wanted in return.

Is this some kind of power sharing? What do you mean by 'safety net'?

I wasn't sure why I was even considering it. This kind of bond made me nervous - we would be closely tether together in order to fight the shadow people which were already quite threatening without me being almost at the mercy of another warlock who didn't trust me and whom I hardly trusted myself. Our shared experience in the woods had earned him some points in my book, but we had hardly come out as best buddies. I couldn't bring myself to really feel comfortable with the idea that he had suggested. Yet I also knew that I was even less comfortable with the shadow people that had tethered themselves to us, and I recognised that at this point I wouldn't be able to get rid of him so I might as well utilize him.
