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.

Lilith Alysbury | Wolf; Warlord/Battlelord

“You know what? Fuck it.” I’d never wanted to talk about this fucking memory. However hearing doubt in someone else's words when they had been given such a big fucking thumbs up from the Ancestors…well I was going to die what did it matter? Whenever I’d hit a Wolf who followed one old tradition of the campfire pack story I’d skirted around an obvious one. How I’d gotten my rank. “Do you know how a Warlord is chosen? Every pack has their own ways of making a decision. Some Alphas like mine don’t give a fuck about what would be appropriate. Would you honestly look at me and think I was Warlord material? That my Pack Master made a choice based on my fucking ferocity?” I grinned. I mean seriously? I’d always wondered how Wolves could look at me in human form and think, fuck yeah what a bad ass. Dominion hadn’t turned me and given me my rank without the Ancestors approval. My pack hadn’t even turned anyone in many long years. “I didn’t deserve my rank.” Couldn’t remember if I’d ever admitted that out loud before. Now I’d dared anyone to prove that I wasn’t worthy of my Golden eyes. I was a kamakazi pilot. “But the trick is. The Ancestors still have to sanction it all. Having them okay that shit kinda means that it's meant to be a thing and technically they directly chose you. It’s up to you what you do with the big thumbs up but they aren’t retarded referees Olympia.” Maybe she would appreciate the lame sports comparison there.

Now there was a question. How fucking glad was I that Olympia had been avoiding Wolves? The whole bar just smelt of human aside from my present company. “Many Wolves do. Any that didn’t seem to immediately shun me I made sure were regretful of their generosity, no matter how remote.” The Pacific had been a mixed bag when I’d first arrived. Odin hadn’t wanted me in his territory but Onyx had never seemed to mind too much. “No Wolf in their right mind wants to be a Lone. Most are made that way for a reason. I heard that Onyx exiled Ollurian.” I had to smirk though. “Not that I’m saying I’m a ray of sunshine and we should be best pals or anything. I don’t mind if you don’t like me. Just take what I’m offering regardless.” What the fuck was I even offering? Did I even have time to sit down and give her every scrap of teachings I had actually absorbed? The answer was no. Fuck no.

“That’s cute.” I gave her a withering look. “I’m not saying as soon as your eyes change it’s like putting on sunglasses that warp reality and make Lones look more…interesting?” Since I’d never been given the impression what Spiritual Leaders saw of me when we connected was entirely positive, I couldn’t find many words that fit the bill. She obviously had little experience with Prophecy, which didn’t surprise me coming from the black hole that was the Pacific and it was likely she had never experienced what I was talking about. It was an off shoot of the same premise. “Prophecy is broken down into segments. Some wolves will ask for personal prophecies. The pack as a whole or the Alpha himself may ask for a general prediction. When in proper harmony you’ll get messages you didn’t even ask for. However, all that complicated shit is based on making a connection with spirits. If you play switchboard operator you see…I guess it’s a representation of the Wolf's soul.” Sona had ended up explaining this to me using drawings in the dirt. Nothing grew at the base of the tree we sat under, near the river. Had to hope that Olympia had an imagination and could grasp the concept.

“Wait….have you ever gotten a prophecy?” Had she ever spoken to the Ancestors through her own Spiritual Leader? What was her name? Something fucking difficult to say that started with O. The more Olympia spoke the less hope I had. If she didn’t believe she was very spiritual then chances were she had never bothered with anything to do with her Spiritual Leader before this had all happened. She would need to make a connection of her own before she could hardline anyone else in. “Hey you!” I called the bartender over and gestured with my hands. “Napkin and a pen?” He nodded though obviously annoyed that I hadn’t been overly polite with my request. As soon as it was put in front of me I grabbed the writing implement and began scrawling on the paper.

“I can give you some basic herbs to use just to speak with the Ancestors. There’s quite a number of suitable ones, some more dangerous than others.” Didn’t know whether it was appropriate to give her directions to the Pacific Scrying Bowl or not. Wouldn’t Onyx do all of that? He had to have some shit left over from their own Spiritual Leaders to give her. Technically I had mostly sought her out to get a ritual of my own just to feel the Ancestors again before I went through this damned detox. Since that was obviously not going to happen now, all I had for her were some kindergarten beginner tricks. “You don’t need much now, it’s when you’re joining more than just yourself to the Great Spirits that all the bells and whistles come in handy.”
