This thread is meant to be sort of the equivalent to the Fernwood Village in the DL boards. It's a place for newcomers to establish a character, and for to give others a chance to use their charactars in a more permanent rp.

It's set in LA, the present. An old apartment building will be our focal point, with perhaps a coffee shop, too.

This looks pretty cool, and I think I'd like to join...

Hmm, DarkMistress, you have any plans for this Greta character? I mean, if you don't, could I play her?

If not, I have a couple of ideas of my own... I'll just have to see which characters would fit best.

Cool pics! :)

Ok here are my two chars. I didn't go into much detail with Rebecca as I did Saleka. I'll add to it later. I don't plan on making these chars super people. I just thought it would fun to play a Werepanthar, not that I'm sure of everything she can do but I'm not going to be over doing her. I don't think that is fun anyway. So mostly I will play her as being human and then some. Saleka is almost normal but she just knows and sees things. Here they are:

Name: Rebecca Sims
Nationality: Half Native American/Half African American
Age: 30
Height:5'9"
Weight: 150
Hair: Long, curly black
Eyes: deep brown
Persuasion: Neutral
Occupation: Bartender
Race: werepanthar

Weapon of choice: Hand to hand Martial arts-Judo. She can use any object to protect herself, baseball bat, knife, dagger, broken bottle, tire iron..you understand my meaning.

Other: Black Harley Davidson Softail "Night Train"..couldn't resist it cause it looks soo cool. :)

Name: Saleka Vash
Nationality: Romanian American(Gypsy)
Age: 26
Height:5'3"
Weight: 105
Hair: Long, straight Chocolate Brown
Eyes: Hazel with flecks of dark green
Persuasion: Neutral
Occupation: Fortune Teller/Reader/Alchemist
Race: Human

Weapon of choice: Knife laced with low level poison. She doesn’t like to fight so she may use this to get away. She knows when someone has violence on the mind so she will avoid that person or creature if possible.

Saleka is of Gypsy blood and can tell people’s future. She can read Tarot Cards, Palms, Tea leaves and Auras. She is practice in the art of Alchemy and uses that knowledge to heal as well as other things when her services are needed. Other then these abilities she is just another person in LA. Her exotic looks tend to draw people to her as well has her friendly nature. She is respected by others of her trade and works at La Luna Bar & Grill.

My character:

Name: Meredith
Age: 25
Hair: Black with blue streaks
Eyes: Green
Skin: very pale
Height: 5'5''
Race: Human

Description: Always dressed in black, sometimes in sexy pvc suits, other times in romantic velvet dresses, depending on her mood. She's suspicious, secretive and creative, works best in the night hours, likes to read and write, going for long walks and trying everything that is dangerous. She is a loner, but likes to party and get drunk once in a while. She's obsessed with her looks.

Occupation: Designer. Meredith started sewing clothes and selling them on the net when she was a teenager. She managed to become well known in the gothic scene and is now personal designer for many bands.

Her apartment is always dark, the walls are painted blood red and there are candles, strange objects, skulls and dried flowers everywhere. She has a few pets: a boa constrictor, two lizards and a turtle.

For Greta? I did at first but I deleted it when I said you could have her. :P So do whatever you want with her..all I did was give you her name, that she leads an interesting life and that she dwells at the apartment. Unless you want me to try and remember what I had written about her...the rest is up to you. :)

I think this is a cool thread and was wondering if I could possibly join. I also wanted to know that if I can join, could my character be like a cyborg or android? The reason is because I have been currently working on a character like this for awhile and wanted to know if I could use him. I thought that his history could be like a scientist created him for evil purposes and he escaped or something. And if I can't use him, I'll think of something else.

La Luna Bar & Grill is both actually. It is based off of a real place I used to hang at years ago. lol

Anyway, it has a place where people can just come to eat and a place that has a bar with a stage for live music and dancing...stuff like that. The dinning room is cut off from the bar area by two large sound proof glass doors to give those who are there to dine only some peace and quiet. Above the main bar area is a deck which wraps around the entire edge of the room for those who want to view the shows from up above or whatever they want to do. This is a place that is known to those who are different but it has it's human clientele as well. There are private rooms in the basement area for special meeting and other stuff. It is open from 11am to (3)5am. Bar closes early but kitchen stays open for those late night snackers. lol Most of the crew, but not all, who work at night are not human due to the types that can show up in the wee hours of the night.

Does that sound good to all of you? That way we all have a place to go and Graffiti you can do whatever you wish with the place. I just created it now it's yours to have fun with. :)

Sure that would be cool. Well here is my characters.

Name:Keith
Race: Android
Height: 5'8
Weight: 203 lbs.
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blonde and short
Age (what he looks like): 23
Occupation: None

Weapons of choice:Hand to hand combat because his programming with weapons are more likely to kill people, and he doesn't want to do that. Yet, if he has to use weapons it would be dual desert eagles. He also has learned how to use most weapons and fighting styles. He is stronger, faster, and smarter than most people, plus he has a chip in his brain that can speed up his body (kind of like the watches off of Clockstoppers) though he can't use it for long.

Keith is a android created to be the greatest fighting machine in the world. The scientist, David Danson, was planning on selling Keith to anybody, if they paid the right price. Yet, before he could find the highest bidder, Keith escaped and came to LA. David was able to track Keith by a tracking device implanted into Keith's arm but, Keith removed it and thought that he had lost David. Now David is trying to use the police to help find Keith.

Name: David Danson
Race: Human
Age: 34
Height: 5'4
Weight: 128 lbs.
Eyes: Hazel
Hair: Brown, short and spiky
Occupation: Scientist

Weapon(s) of choice: A pistol that he created that can short out any electrical device (namely Keith) and stun people.

Hope this is ok with everybody, if not I'll change it up a bit.

Well, the rule says: never control other people's characters!
There can be situations where it's necessary to do it, but there wasn't any need to in this case.
I would personally be pissed off if someone used my characters like that.

Can I join too? I already have a character I want to use.

Name: Kei Bannon
Race: Human
Age: 20
Height: 5'10
Occupation: Part-time jobs/Purger
Weapons: Almost anything, but always seems to have some type of huge knife or knives with him.

Appearance: Messy, dirty-blonde hair that hangs in his eyes, which are dark brown. Average build, has some brutal scars on his chest and neck. Wears a set of metal bracelets on his wrists, and he never takes them off.

Abilities: Seems to be able to sense the inhumanity in anyone. Whether this is literal such as a different race, or someone who is a sinner(someone of an evil alignment) it will manifest its self as an aura around the person. He can move extremely fast and you wont hear him coming either. He also has an amazing threshold for pain. Think like those killers in the slasher movies.

Background: As a purger, Kei has the ability to sense and kill those who are wicked or non-human (demons, vampires, weres, ect.) He would rather not kill though, but it seems that a part of him takes over, turning him into a killing machine.. The bracelets are his way of controlling himself, though they limit some of his powers.

Right now, he is hiding from the organization that created him and trying not to get into too much trouble.

Okay....this is a "home" for characters who don't have a home, right? Well, it just so happens that I have a character who is in need of a home. She doesn't really fit in anywhere, and even though I've been using her for a year now, I don't really know much about her. I haven't had many chances to use her is why.

Name: Mae Darkshield
Age: ???
Sex: Female
Race: ??? (Not even she is sure)
Description: Long unruly black hair, bangs usually hang in her eyes, black eyes which she usually wears a pair of Predator 2 Ray-Bans to cover, pale skin, very slender. She loves wearing leather, and usually wanders around wearing leather pants, a black t-shirt or tank top, black leather jacket ( if it's not too hot), and a pair of black leather boots with 2-inch heels.

Mae has an unusualy power, similar to that of Willow's from Buffy. You know, when Willow went psycho. Anyway, I created this character before I started watching reruns of Buffy, so...yeah. Oh, I have one more character that needs a home.

Name: Aria Savile (Victoria Beltran)
Age: 270 but looks 20.
Sex: Female
Race: Vampire
Description: Long brown hair, emerald green eyes, 5'9", 175 lbs, 32D, full red lips, svelte and strong body, medium sized nose, almond shaped eyes, often said to be a classic beauty.
Bio: Was turned in the fall of 1754 when she was 20. Had been engaged to a farmer's son, who died due to a hunting accident. She locked herself up in her room for three months before her parents were able to persuade to get some fresh air. As she was walking in the woods not far from her home, she came across a strange woman. The woman claimed to know of Aria's plight, and said she could make it so that Aria could leave her old life behind her and start anew.

Aria accepted without a second thought, and allowed herself to be turned. She passed out shortly after, and when she came to again, she found herself in a lavish, yet strange house. She looked all over the house for the woman from the previous night, but all she found was a letter from her "benefactor" stating that the house was Aria's until the other vampiress came back. Also included in the letter were instructions on what Aria should do if she were hungry, and an estimated time of when the other should return home.

The first week was the hardest for Aria, but she was lucky enough to meet another vampire who taught her what she needed to know. Aria has spent the last 250 years traveling the world, searching for her sire, and turning other's as well. Unlike her creator, Aria has stayed with each of her pupils until they were ready to strike out on their own. Her lifestyle has gained her additional homes in California, Ireland, and Spain, as well as accomodations in other lands with other vampires.

(I revised Aria recently, and am quite happy with her now...I may write a story about her.)

Finally finished up a profile for Greta... lemme know what you think...

Name: Greta Van Hasett
Alias: Greta, Vannah, Monk
Nationality: Dutch-American
Race/Species: Human
Job: Spy (see Biography section for details)
Gender: Female
Age: 28
Alignment: Lawful neutral
Physical Description: She has long, near-platinum blonde hair and azure eyes, much like most others of Dutch heritage. Again, like most other Dutch, she has fair skin, a milky white in color. She is tall and thin with legs twice again as long as the rest of her frame and small, elfishly pointed ears. She is a quite beautiful woman who generally wears light, pastel colors that make her seem to glow. She stands 5’11” tall and weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of 120 pounds.
Personality: A mysterious person by nature, Greta prefers being on her own, away from people most of the time. When she is in the presence of others, she tends to blend into the background, content to watch and learn their behavior, but not add anything to any conversations that might be going on. She does this so well, in fact, that most people hardly ever notice her presence at all, which is all good and well as far as she is concerned. She is very intelligent and hardly forgets anything, especially about the people she studies.
Biography: She grew up in Solvang, California; a Dutch community just up the coast from Los Angeles. She had a quiet and rather uneventful childhood, marked only by her reclusive actions even at a young age. She never seemed to play much with other children, and stayed away from them whenever possible. She found her solace in books and imaginary friends, which seemed to be much more to her liking.

When she did try to have more than a few casual acquaintances in high school, she soon found that her odd behavior had caused her to be labeled “weird” and “freak” …so she found that making friends proved to be difficult. The few friends she did manage to make were much like herself, enjoying to read fantasy and science fiction novels and seemed to be entranced in studying people. Several of these friends were artists, while others like herself were writers. Either way, they would often go to crowded places and just watch people, sketching and writing as they did so.

She went on to college at UCLA, majoring in English. After getting her degree, Greta decided against moving back to Solvang, and decided to stay in LA instead. At a bar one night, someone noticed her ability of reading people and offered her a job… one that would employ most, if not all, of her prominent traits. And so, she became a spy of sorts for the local politicians…her major reason for employment was to watch other politicians and find out what she could... as such, she doesn’t have much time to herself and is rarely ever home. She spends most of her time in hotels and cars, watching people and writing things down that could help out her employers.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): She can be stealthily quiet and hard to notice if she doesn’t want to be seen. Has an innate ability to understand people and their behavior, as well as predict likely actions for them. She is trained in a couple different disciplines of martial arts and can defend herself if necessary, though it hardly ever is.

ok, think I have a char I could use, if its not suitable, jsut let me know!

Name: Màrtainn

Gender: Male

Nationality: Scottish

Age: 24

Height: 5'9

Hair: Long, black, keeps it tied back

Eyes: Grey

Build: Slim, toned

Other physical attributes: Handsome, though does seem to display some feminine qualities in his face, finely chisled cheek bones and jaw line, giving him a 'pretty' appearance. Bares a few scars, one across his midriff, his chest and also his left wrist. Slightly tanned, he prefers to wear white or black, rarely anything else. On his right hand, he wears a platinum ring with a diamond encrusted into it.

Personality: Martainn is a calm and often laid back individual. He has a sharp and keen intellect, partly due to his inherent abilities. This can come as quite a surprise considering the upbringing he endured. Always one to give sound and non-judgemental advice, he is often seen as the mediator and peace maker. His view on life is one of fairness and second chances. Though the world isn't perfect, there is no harm is trying to make it such. A great passion for nature in all its forms, he does like to be near trees and country side, however, presently such is not the case, though he can recogise the beauty within a concrete jungle.

Bio: Growing up in the untamed highlands of scotland, Martainn was born to a loving, caring and ever gentle mother, whose serene nature he takes after. This however, is a stark contrast to the robust and somewhat aggressive attitude of his fathers, whom was secretly displeased with his only son's lack of manliness. It did not take long though for this to be readily apparent. For days on end he would take Martainn into the 'wilds', hoping it would toughen the young lad up, much to his mothers disapproval, however she was too frightened of her husband to voice her concerns. Despite his fathers intentions, Martainn would perform remarkably well amongst the roaming Heather moorlands and densely pack pine and oaken forest on the mountain sides. For he felt most at home in such surroundings, always being in tune with the trees and animals that scittered by on a regular basis.

His personality and quirks did not change, much to the fathers disappointment, whom eventually decided to take more physical methods of persuasion. Which resulted in the scar across his stomach and chest, a rather upleasent experience with a knife. The slash on his wrist however, was of his own accord. As the beatings came more regularly and intense, and being locked in his room for hours upon end, Martainn fell into a deep and dark depression. He was always an emotional child, perhaps bordering on empathy, for he felt every emotion deeply and strongly, especially his own, as such, this darkness forced him into himself, deep and far within his own subconscious.

This lasted for a number of years, something from which he did not think he could emerge from. All that kept him alive, was the thought of his mother's breaking heart should he take his own life, even if it was one of misery and despair. However, it was lucky, perhaps, that his father took ill one year, heart problems the doctor had said, and that it was only a matter of time before he would part this world and go to God's loving embrace. The beatings ended. His father, Seamus, was afraid, For here was one thing his physical prowess and hard attitude could not divert nor frighten off, so, oddly, he turned to his son in a bid for forgiveness, hoping it would bring about a change in his condition. Martainn forgave him, though many could not understand why, but he knew, as he could feel his father dying, his soul leaving this world, all the built up emotion flooded the young lad and he buckled under the pressue, falling slightly ill himself, yet unable to sleep, eat or drink.

The day came though, his father died, and his grief was raw and intense. No one could understand the lad's sorrow.... after all, the man beat him for years, subjected him to torment and ridicul. Though, there was one that knew, one whose grief was just as passionate. Martainn's mother understood all too well, she was after all the one who birthed him, and such was the bond of love between them that no words were needed to describe what he was.

Time passed, three years infact, and Martainn found himself itching to travel. This brings us to the present, where he finds himself in America.

Abilities: His 'powers' appear to be of Shamanistic origin, for he is very much intune with the way of 'Gaia' and the earth. He feels strong emotions, and is currently experimenting with seeing the 'Unseen World', namely that of Spirits. He also practices yoga, and an altered, more wild form of martial arts.

Graffiti, here are the stats on Pedar Steele. You can use him or if someone wants to play him..go right ahead. Just thought we could use a Manager with a twist! Fill in the blank with his abilities. I didn’t think they would be necessary plus if you or someone else want him then that leaves it all open.

Name: Pedar Steele
Nationality: Greek
Age: looks to be in his early 30’s
Height:6’
Weight: 190
Hair: Long straight black
Eyes: deep blue almost blackish
Persuasion: neutral….more evil then good but he is not bloodthirsty most of the time

Occupation: One of the Night Managers at the La Luna Bar & Grill

Race: Vampire

Description: Pedar is very charming and handsome but that is just the surface. He has a superiority complex that has gotten him placed in this position by his Master to try and get him to humble himself. He thinks all sub creatures, even lower vampires, are beneath him but for now he will play his part and be a perfect ‘gentlemen’ to the masses. He treats his customers like they are gold but treats most of the staff like they are worthless. After all, he can’t be nice to everyone now can he? He has a taste for were creature’s blood so whenever he gets the chance he tries to charm them into giving him what he craves. He doesn’t want to kill them just wants a taste. He is very old so he does have rare abilities but hardly uses them unless he truly needs them.

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply... took me a while to catch up, what with all the other threads I'm in... >_ton of run on sentences going on. Use commas, semicolons, and periods once and a while, it makes things easier to read!

And second, when roleplaying, it becomes far less confusing if you write in the past tense, rather than the present.

Hope that helps some...

Hmmm..I never thought about the tense I write in..lol Didn't think it matter that much. Why do you say it is confusing to write in present tense? I'm not being a smart ass here, I really want to know why you said that. I haven't roleplyed online all that much so I want to become better at it. If I can that is..:)

Btw everyone, I'm going to be going on a vacation from 7/3(this Sat) to 7/11( the following Sun). I will have access to a computer. Now that is not to say I will post everyday because I may be too busy. But I will be on as much as I can so I won't miss what is going on. Or I hope I won't. :P I guess I just wanted you all to know just in case I don't post for a few days or more. I'm still working a lot at my job so when I get back that won't change much at all. I'm just looking forward to the rest and relaxtion I hope to be getting. :)

To be quite honest, I'm not sure, lol. It just seems to flow better. Think about it; in most stories you read, what tense is it written in? It always just sounds better, at least to me, in past tense. Also, I believe that someone mentioned before (it's been ages and I really don't remember who it was) that it has something to do with the fact that you are responding to someone else's post, and that what you're writing is really a reaction. ...He went into a lot of detail and it made sense, but I really can't remember most of it.. >_<;; The basic jist is that this is happening in the past, even if the past is only a couple minutes ago, and so it should be written in that tense.

I agree with Airi. Present tense just sounds wrong when you read a story.
It's something that normally annoys me very much, but this is not my thread, so it's not my job to decide how people must write.

But I think it would be nice to have a plot or an adventure here. We have lots of characters but very little meaningful interaction.

Either way, it's usually better if everyone just picks a tense and sticks with it.

I'm going to Chicago soon, but I don't know if I'll have computer access.

Sorry I haven't posted either. I was enjoying my vacation. :) I just got back so I'll post either tonight or tomorrow. I'm trying to get back into my regular routine and it's a bit hard today but I should be ok tomorrow.

Hey Graffiti..with the band coming on to play maybe you can know them..that way you can go up on stage and sing..:) They are a cover band..so it could happen..just a thought for ya! ;)

By the way, what happen to Kalia..did she bug out on us? I mean I know it has been a while..but just wondering if anyone knew. I thought the whole mad scientists thingy working with the LAPD would be kind of cool.

Yeah that was what I was thinking. I haven't posted with David because she hasn't posted yet. I have a few ideas concerning him like maybe he can't find Keith and then creates more androids to find him or something. Just an idea.

Here are some perliminary band info

Eric: bassist: He is very much a druggie, having done almost everything in the book, but not really addicted to anything. Other than that, he is a nice guy, laid back, and him and Jack got along very well. He's very creative.

Tom: drummer: A litlle bit more tight strung than Eric, Tom tended to butt heads with Jack. Tom had wanted to go in a little bit more pop direction, to get the hits, and the money.

Lex: rhythm guitar: Lex is very energentic, and intelligent. He has a sarcastic humor, which can be a bit to cutting at times.

Tad: lead guitar: Tad has been described as the new Jimmy Page. He grew up with Jack and the rest, and always had a knack for music. His success actually encouraged the band to form around him. He is relatively quiet, but a good listener. He has devoloped a technique to listen to conversations he probably shouldn't. He only really opens up with his friends.

07/20/2004 7:31 AM

Well you did a great job..because a lot of the bands I knew had people just like you described.

I was thinking that Rebecca left something in the bar and had to go back in so that is why she wasn't standing outside.(edit: ok I think I'm still outside with you all so I'll just leave it at that I can always edit it if I'm reading the posts wrong!)

Oh and I still don't know what is going on in the bar but give me few days and I'll come up with something. ;)
