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.

Thread takes place in an older Greek Revival style home. It was once quite grand but has fallen into disrepair. It was large for its time but by modern standards it is not particularly huge. The grounds surrounding the house are not well cared for. The house had not been used for years but recently there has been more activity here than usual. It's rather late at night. Story continues here.


Nobody had been in the house for years. It sat forgotten, too hidden by overgrowth to be bothered with even by the kind of people that like to spend time in abandoned places. That's why it was the perfect place for the woman to take up residence.

She picked her way across the overgrown yard with an antiquated lantern in one hand, it was enough to light her dark eyes but little else.

She was there for a few months before she started receiving a visitor. If someone were to look in on the women as they sat together in an upper room of the house, that person would be shocked by the stark contrast that existed between them. The older woman had dark eyes and dark hair, and dressed in traditional Indian clothing in bright colors. Her visitor was so pale that she appeared to be paper white in some lights, and wore modern clothing that was black from neck to toe.

The women spent a few hours every week together. Sometimes they read in silence, others they argued.

One day they sat together reading for an hour before the very pale woman said something to the other and they began to argue. The pale woman left in a rush with a flashlight in hand. As she was walking through the underbrush that surrounded the house, she suddenly froze and looked around, her eyes narrowed. There was a crack, and the woman barely managed to leap out of the way before a large tree branch fell and landed right where she had just been standing. With an angry look on her face the woman took out a cell phone, read something quickly, and then shoved it into her pocket and moved swiftly into the night.
