Pat Benatar - "Promises In The Dark"
YouTube Video
Never again, isn't that what you said
You've been through this before
You swore, this time, you'd think with your head
No one would ever have you again
And if takin' was gonna get done, you'd decide where and when

Just when you think you got it down
Your heart securely tied and bound
They whisper promises in the dark

Armed and ready, you fought love battles in the night
But too many opponents made you weary of the fight
Blinded by passion, you foolishly let someone in
All the warnings went off in your head, still you had to give in

Just when you think you got it down
Resistance nowhere to be found
They whisper promises in the dark

But promises you know what they're for
It sounds so convincing, but you heard it before
'Cause talk is cheap and you gotta be sure
And so you put up your guard
And you try to be hard but your heart says try again

You desperately search for a way to conquer the fear
No line of attack has been planned to fight back the tears
Where brave and restless dreams are both won and lost
On the edge is where it seems it's well worth the cost

Just when you think you got it down
Your heart in pieces on the ground
They whisper promises in the dark

Sex on camera is such a popular theme for so-called "Reality Shows." From Real World to Big Brother, from Temptation Island to The Bachelor and so many more, it's become a mainstream pastime to the studios.

Now a new one is being offered. Instead of taking the predictable stereotypical people - the Troublemaker, the Angel, the Brat, the Slut - the studio is trying something different. Instead of having perfectly great-figure late-teens and early twenty-somethings who were all too eager to get wild with the other participants, this time they decided to make it different. Darker, for sure, and possibly more sensual.

Promises In The Dark is that show. Applicants have to be mid-twenties through mid-thirties, and only people who have had bitter, traumatic separations or divorces are accepted. People who have been abused, had their "Significant Other" cheat on them, or worse. The directors don't want the abusers, the cheaters, the thieves, and the amoral punks - those people don't deserve the same sort of second chance, as far as the directors are concerned.

However, just because the accepted applicants are all the "good guys and girls" of their old relationships, that doesn't mean that they will be here. The studio is going to play tricks and traps, games and goals, and try to get them to betray each other in one way or another.

Who can win? Will there be any winners at all, with love conquering all? Or will it be a frozen wasteland, with everyone even more callous and distrustful than they started?

You decide...

- - - - -

This will be a free-form RPG with 8 to 12 players/characters, evenly divided between Male and Female. Although the emotional knifes of the characters are designed to keep it from being a wham-bam-every-which-way sex-fest right from the start, it may end up being quite kinky over time; it will be created in the Bondage Small Groups forum, and hopefully we can work our way into the Big Groups area.

Scheduling/Speed: Since this is a game where all of the characters are essentially involved with each other to a certain degree, we need to make sure that relative time is consistent. That means that you don't do a three-hour travel-and-exposition* in the same time when a couple of other players are getting frisky. This game will be expecting a general posting speed of two to three posts per week. There are two exceptions to this: If you're having a conversation with another character (or having some wild sex), post as many posts as it requires; and the first week, which is going to likely have a LOT of character interaction, the expectation is suspended. Also note that this is a guideline. Try to keep the other posters in mind, but if you need a fourth and fifth post in a reasonable in-game time frame, do it. Don't stress about having already posted your three for a week.

In Character/Out of Character knowledge: Please try to keep a reasonable awareness of what your character knows, separate from what you as a player know. If two characters sneak off into the jacuzzi to explore each other's bodies while everyone else is having dinner, there's no reasonable expectation that your character knows what they're doing. Keep in mind what your character knows, and don't react to the events that they don't know.*

* Both of these were violated in one post in my last game. While a couple of characters had snuck off to a bedroom to try some D/s play, another ran out of the building, Parkoured his way across town to the jail, carried on a detailed conversation with his thuggie brother, Parkoured back across town, stopping to pick up a very loud stereo system, which he placed right next to the window of the room of the still-halfway-through-sex pair. All in one post. Don't be that guy. ;)

Sounds very interesting.  I would be down for this.

Seeing myself as a too-nice oafish guy who married "the woman of his dreams" in the early 20's to find out that when she got more successful with her career, she traded up to a new husband, kicking him to the curb.

Is that what you are going for??

Yeah, that's exactly the basic platform for a character we're looking for. An excellent start!

Offline Top CatTopic starter

Something else to think about: how your character behaved AFTER the betrayal and break-up is just as important as the betrayal itself. Did your character withdraw from others, becoming a wallflower, a recluse, or even a hermit? Did they carry on life as normal, without sex? Or perhaps they became one-night wonders, who found people of the opposite sex to play with, but never called for a second date?

There are many possibilities here.

Added the YouTube video of the song in the OP (spoilered inside the spoiler), for those who aren't familiar with Pat Benatar's awesome song that's being used as the inspiration for this game... or those who just want to hear it.

We've got 1 and 1 so far, people. Do you want to let them win by default?  :P

Oh, and for a little more fun, here's a sample of one possible origin:

You colored me interested awhile back. Definitely up for this!!

I'm playing with a few ideas for my character, but I'll give you a general idea soon.

Okay, we're at two ladies, one dude. Need at least two more women and three more men to convert this from an Interest Check into a full open/requests game.

Offline Ron Don Volante

Very interested in playing a woman!

Offline AndyZ

Showing some interest in this, may go for a female character if that's allowed.

Edit: One thing I should ask: how dark do you want this?
« Last Edit: June 13, 2014, 12:03:21 AM by AndyZ »

Offline Top CatTopic starter

@ wisdomcube and AndyZ: I have no problems with you guys playing female characters here, provided there isn't a conflict with other female players wanting to play female characters. Of courst, it's entirely possible that we could get some ladies who wanted to play the guys, here.  >:)

As for "how dark" - if you're talking about your back-story, you can make it as dark as you like, provided that it doesn't make your character completely devoid of any interest in the opposite gender. The crews are going to be screening and blocking emotional psychopaths. ;)

Similarly, severe events during the "show" are going to be monitored closely, so there's not going to be any cutting off another character's penis, here... Bobbitt-ladies are not going to get very far. ;)

Offline AndyZ

Heh, much darker than I was thinking.  I imagined stuff like attempted suicide and maybe some self-mutilation.

Offline Top CatTopic starter

Attempted suicide, fine. Self-mutilation, lightly okay. If she'd be disturbing for most people to look at, the crews would screen her out.

Offline Torterrable

I feel like it might be time for me to try another foray into group roleplaying.

I'm interested. Thinking of a character vaguely Infinite Jest-esque. A previously small-time successful lawyer has been hit with an odd revenge by a drug-user criminal, which will not be described unless needed. Needless to say, however, this revenge was rather...unique, and has triggered a crippling phobia in his wife, which lead to their marriage degrading. The wife turned to drugs, turned to mystics, a variety of things that could have rendered her legally insane, to cope with her phobia. She singlehandedly ruined their marriage, their finances, everything... He divorced her too late and split the little that was left with her, her lawyers sharking most of it away.

Offline Top CatTopic starter

That makes four ladies and two gentlemen... still need two more men to kick this off. =^_^=

Offline LackingInHeart

I may be interested in the role of a dominant male.

How dark do you intend this role play on getting?

Update:  By that I meant, how dark as far as the traps in the game?
« Last Edit: June 15, 2014, 01:01:23 PM by lackinginheart »

Offline Top CatTopic starter

Yes, Lacking, you playing a male character is just fine. The game is going to be "hollywood dark" - there's going to be some deliberate backstabbing "traps" - or the opportunity for the characters to lose points by refusing to backstab, that sort of thing. Not really dire, but certainly manipulative.

Offline Top CatTopic starter

We're at 4 women, 3 men - I'd like to see one more male character before we turn this into a full-fledged game invite. If we don't have a solid starting set by... let's say Wednesday, then I'm going to shelve this and try something else, and open this up again in a few months.

Offline Top CatTopic starter

Last bump...

If we don't get one more player/character by tomorrow night, I'll relaunch Porn Scholarship (another group game that I ran before, but got nuked by dropouts and trollish disruption) for another attempt. Those of you who have been here will certainly be welcome to join. I won't be running it quite the same, though - the true nature of the scholarship's funding won't be obvious during IC sign-ups, this time around! ;)

Offline AndyZ

Would it help if I dropped to make things even?

Offline Top CatTopic starter

Would it help if I dropped to make things even?
Not really, no. I want a minimum of 4 per side, to keep it from being too unstable or limited. With 3 and 3, some of the planned scenarios become very restricted.

I do appreciate the generous offer, though. =^_^=

If there's is not our final player, this will get rebooted perhaps in fall. It's a good idea and needs exploring. Curse you, slow days of summer!

*nods* What Greytrail said. If we can't get an eighth player, we're not going to abandon this, we're just going to shelve it for a few months and try again later. I'll give you all notice (unless you tell me not to) when we try to launch it again.

@ wisdomcube and Andy, would one of you volunteer to switch to your "natural" side as one of the male characters? That'll make us at 4/4 and make us good to launch.

@Kerri: Don't sweat the inexperience too much. We'll start slow-ish, and ramp things up a bit once we're all settled.

I reinstalled The Sims 3 last night, so that I could make the new house for this or the other game. ;)

I guess, if nobody else wants to play a male, I can, but it's not my personal preference, not for this game anyways. So if neither of the boys want to play their gender, I'd be willing to play as a male. I just really didn't want to jump into the mix of a group game with a character that I'm not totally comfortable with. I am willing to try to make it work though.

So, if I'm going with a male character I have this in mind. He'll be a war veteran, having lost his leg in war. When he came back home, he found his wife had been cheating on him the entire time he was gone, being very pregnant with the other man's child as proof. He's bitter, but knows that not all women are the same. Perhaps he thinks this show will be a good way to jump back into the dating world.

Does that sound like what you might want?

I'll probably need some help along the way, so don't say you haven't been warned. ;) I'm a relative newb when dealing with group games like I said before, and I haven't had much opportunity playing males, so if I make my tough guy a bit non-guy like, please feel free to send me some constructive criticism, and I'll fix it right up.

Other than that, this seems like a really fun set-up and I'm looking forward to playing with you all.

First post has been updated, with some basic rules and a Character Sheet.

We'll probably get this started this weekend, unless we're at an odd number of players and need one more at that point. I'll start getting the game threads together on Friday, and have the OOC and Character List pages available immediately.

I have somewhat of a char concept I can reuse as female.  In the home stretch of another novel, though, so not 100% I can do something great if I have to come up with something original.  The original concept I was thinking would be pretty dark, though (attempted suicide and such) so might not work overly well in the game.  I'll have to think.

Offline Top CatTopic starter

Past attempted suicide is not an entirely unreasonable backstory, as long as he/she isn't inclined to try again any time soon.

I'm willing to lend the man in the image and the idea to someone else, or like I've said I'm willing to play him. So Andy please do whatever you feel the most comfortable with, I'll fit in wherever I need to. I was last to show interest and don't want to kick anyone out of their place or their desired role.

If you strongly prefer playing a female character, AndyZ, by all means, make your character. It's entirely possible that we could get two more men in, allowing Kerri to shift over to the female side without any problems.

I don't see why that age wouldn't work just fine. This is a perfect game for diversity!

It's on the upper end, but still within the stated range. ;)

This sounds like it's going to be an interesting game.  Too bad I'm just now seeing this thread, having gotten out of the habit of checking the group RP's wanted board of late, but I'll definitely be following along to see how this plays out.  It looks like you're all full up on characters, but following along and seeing everyone else's antics can be just as fun as participating sometimes!  :P

Not full up, still have 4 slots open, but they'll be joining in pairs. We're looking for 8 to 12 characters, and we're presently at the minimum, 8. =^_^=

Feel free to make a character, and you'll be the first on the waiting list, for sure.

So, I found out that I have to go on a recruiting trip (damn college athletics!!) the whole next week, so I will not be able to respond until NEXT Sunday (June 29).  I am so sorry, I just found out about it.  So, please do not think that I am leaving the story, I have to go to some areas that have little/no service and talk to athletes and families and stuff, attend classes, all stuff so I will not be able to write.  I can send short messages, so if you want to gameplan or anything on here on messages, I should be able to. 

OR if we get an OCC thread I can check in there.

I am interested though, sorry about that.  I leave in about an hour... please hold my spot??

I have a really good chance of getting this one particular job I just found out today, so I'm reluctant to try to start too many more games or I may not be able to keep up.  I'm going to pass my spot to Sarah Morgan.

Offline Sarah Morgan

Character name: Anna Foster

Age: 27

Gender and Sex: Female.

Basic personality: Anna tries to not let her past circumstances change what kind of person she's always been, though sometimes it can be hard.  She tries to be friendly to people she meets, though it's harder to do with men, and she's lately taken to being more observant when she first interacts with people, and it takes her some time to open up to strangers.  She's still someone who considers herself a nice person, one who doesn't manipulate others, and tries to find the bright side in life, optimistic rather than looking to find something negative to be depressed about all the time.

What happened to turn you off relationships? Anna was married to her husband Mark for three years, from the time she graduated college until a couple of years ago, when it was discovered that Mark, who taught college-level history, was having an affair with one of his students.  Needless to say, they divorced not long after the news came out, Mark having since married his student, and the two moving to a different town, though not far away.  Anna's just grateful she doesn't have to risk running into one or both of them every day, and still wonders how she could have misjudged someone so completely.  She wouldn't have thought Mark would be capable of such a thing, and is just glad the student was over 18, and a legal adult, and that Mark hadn't chosen to go into high school teaching.  Anna is hesitant to try a new relationship, afraid she'll make another mistake and be hurt again, and hasn't been with anyone since Mark.  Relationships and intimacy are something she still takes seriously, and she can't just sleep with anyone casually, using others just because other people do the same thing.

What are your strong points (pick three)? A good listener, loves to read most anything, as far as fiction, and likes to bake, especially lately.  It's
easier than cooking a whole meal, and she's taken to taking extra things to the neighbors, since she can't eat all of everything she makes.

What are your weak points (pick two)? Know-it-all or obnoxious and rude people, and her own fear of trusting new people.  She used to be more open and ready to be trusting until someone gave her a reason not to trust them, but now someone would actually have to work to earn it.

A picture or detailed description of my appearance Anna is around 5'6, with dark hair that falls to the middle of her back, and bright blue eyes.  Her hair is straight, rather than curly, and she weighs around 125 pounds.  She's not full-figured, but not completely flat-chested either, though she's on the smaller side, yet she thinks it fits with her height and weight fairly well.

Okay, now I'm a bit confused here... Is AndyZ's spot open, leaving a place for a female character, or has that been passed to someone else? I'm still waiting to see what kind of character is needed (Male/Female) before making a character sheet.

Sorry for the double post, but is there anyway we can get a current count of male/female characters for the game so I know what might be needed? I don't know if this is possible or not, I'm just throwing out questions. Sorry to be a bother.

Offline jessie20

I was hoping maybe I could join in, but...

1. Late to the game.
2. Unbalanced gender membership, I see.
3. Am lesbian (mostly), and would rather not write (too much) otherwise.

I was thinking, though...my character would have a failed marriage, because she wasn't terribly comfortable with sex and life with her male husband.  But she hasn't terribly come to terms with her sexuality.  The show's admin's divine this and are interested.  And...

Offline jessie20

Oh yes, and perhaps most importantly:

4. I haven't been in a Group game yet, and I wouldn't know my way around.

I know, I know, there's the door.

You're correct that it's gotten lopsided again. Let me run the numbers, and I'll get back to you.

First, you're not actually late at all. We haven't started, we're still enrolling.
Second, yes, it seems to be.
Third, let me check with my co-GM on this, but I'm fairly certain that we can have a bisexual, lesbian-preferred cast member and let that be one of the Director's twists.

Fourth: A new Group player isn't a problem, seriously. Stick around, I'll get answers for you, and if/when you join the game, please don't be afraid to ask questions, either in the OOC thread or PM.

Apologies if I messed things up, but I'm no longer 100% I'll be able to keep up and don't want to mess things over for everyone else.  This is a game where the exact pairing is important, so I'd hate to vanish.

I doubt apologies are necessary AndyZ, not that I have any say in this game ;) but I think it's preferable that you drop it before than during, I also think we all understand the importance of rl obligations.

Offline Top CatTopic starter

Here's the players that have expressed interest so far.

Keldia - No gender specified (Female, most likely)
KurganofPrussia - Male
Keaira - Female
Wisdomcube - Female (Player: Male)
AndyZ: Stepped out
Torterrable - Male
Lackinginheart - Male
Kerri - Undecided (Either, Fem preferred)
Sarah Morgan - Female
jessie20 - Female (Lesbian-pref)

So... presently if all of the players get their characters in as specified and preferred, we'll have 6 ladies and 3 men. So we need two or three more male players. =O_o=

And yet... we could run with this. I hadn't planned on having F/F play being a dominant factor, but if other ladies are willing to let it be, so am I. The only possible problem here is that audiences and directors like to have it seem like an evenly-balanced show... but we can just as easily say, "screw them," and go with what we've got. It'll mean that I need to adjust some of the plot elements, but there will be more tension, since it'll be impossible for everyone to "win." ;)

Since we haven't started yet, we can still bat ideas around a bit, and make changes and adjustments. I'd be happier with a group that's involved and helping create some of the subplots - that means that you'll be more motivated and interested, and far less likely to drop out after a week. ;)

Kerri's absolutely correct - dropping during the start-up, before the game actually starts playing, is massively preferable than losing you a week in. No apologies are necessary. =^_^=

I could possibly play a bi-curious female, that might make it have more options for a lesbian character if needed, or if you still need a male I can still do that. I will continue to wait and see what is needed then fill in the slot.

With the weekend nearing, I might not have a chance to log in much on Saturday and Sunday (I am never really sure if I'll be able to be here much then). So if you want to pm me with whatever type of character is needed once it's fully known, that would be great. If not, I'll keep my eyes out for updates and where you want me to fill in. Thanks.

Well...if I may put 2 cents in...I suggest we don't need an actual balance of M/F participants.  Just that the TV show would...you see.  There can be a certain amount of NCS (is that the right acronym?) activity...put some males in one's post that don't actually have an "Owner."  You see...or is that frowned upon.  Also, 2 females pairing up (perhaps to a degree) might level things out.  Yes?

Either way, I agree, we probably need one more male.

Unless we have a strong flurry of character applications and new players, it's not looking like we're going to be ready to start this weekend, so I'll be pushing it back to Wednesday or next weekend, at the soonest. Don't feel the need to rush on your end. =^_^=

Non-player-characters for games like this are usually not a good idea, because there's a different dynamic. If all else fails, and we can't get any more male characters signed up, I could always kick Greytrail to the curb as a player, not a GM.  >:) Or make Greytrail do a hybrid player-slash-semi-GM thing...

The bi-curious in and of itself is workable, but does limit prospects a bit. So, we'll keep working at finding a good fit. We're all creative people here!

May I ask how it limits things? I would think that it would make for more drama. A bi-curious character would perhaps play the field on both sides, needing to make a decision that could/would cause drama.

I think my character would go in without being confident of her sexual preferences.  Still trying to interact romantically/sexually with men, but...I could see drama there.

But you know, I'm really on Elliquiy for the smut.  Sorry.  Perhaps that wouldn't fit this game, anyway.

On the contrary. That's exactly the sort of thing this game needs - characters that are unsure of themselves in some ways.

We'll call it an 80% "yes" at the moment. As Greytrail said, we're all creative people, and we can make this work. =^_^=

And yes, you're absolutely right that it's drama that could keep this game going, with even the voyeurs reloading to find out what happens next. ;)

Rereading over some of the posts, I think I do need to make one thing clear - just like most of the other games, this is going to be about sex between the characters. The original premise is just somewhat of a brake to keep people from diving right into the heavy scenes on the first day. ;)

Character development, interaction, learning about the others and making friendships (and possibly enemies!) - these are what raises it from just a couple of people having sex. And while kinky, erotic sex is very much a part of E, it's also not the only thing that brings us here. If all you wanted was the sex scenes, you wouldn't have signed up for Elliquiy in the first place, I think. =^_^=

WHY the characters start knocking boots is an important element. ;)

Everyone else: We have only ONE application sent in so far. All of the "reserved" positions are being dropped; get your character sheets in, or you might miss out. Kerri's still got her Reserved position because of her willingness to help balance the game somewhat, and pick either side, and she is now the ONLY reserved position.

Here's hoping this game gets going too, though if it doesn't, I'm with Kerri in appreciating a heads-up when it opens up again.  At least if it doesn't get going, I'll already have a character written up.  :)

I'm starting up another group game, Not Your Normal Harem Show. This is unrelated to any decision for this game - whether this game moves forward or gets shelved depends on the character sheets we've received by Wednesday Night or Thursday Morning. The reason I'm doing this is that Harem isn't going to be as GM-heavy as Promises and Scholarship. I don't think I'd be able to run both of those concurrently; Harem, on the other hand, shouldn't interfere. ;)

Edit: Oh, and it's also much more light-hearted in nature.

Character name: Nina Michaels

Age: 25

Gender and Sex: Female

Basic personality: Nina is a sweet, fun loving woman. She likes being around people and having a good time. Nina can be an absolute flirt which was part of what lead to her downfall with relationships, or at least how she has brought herself to believe. Even with her sweet and generally kind personality she is the type to fight for what she believes in and can turn into the total opposite of what others expect her to be like. Since her break up she has tried the dating scene, but whenever things get too serious she tends to close herself off and push the person away out of fear of being hurt again.

What happened to turn you off relationships? It was the perfect romance. She had been set to marry him in just a month after being together since high school. They had both finished getting their degrees and were living in an apartment together. Out of the blue there were changes in him. They would fight constantly, he'd accuse her of cheating, even became rough with her during sex as a reminder of who she was with. At some point it was no longer venomous words that were thrown at her, but physical blows to her body. Still she stayed by his side and tried to prove that she wasn't cheating, that she wanted no one but him. In her mind if she changed what was upsetting him everything would stop. Then of course she saw the messages. The man had been cheating on her for months and from the looks of it- planned on seeing the chick during their honeymoon. That was the last straw and Nina moved out that very night while her ex slept never to look back.

What are your strong points (pick three)? Dancing, helping others, taking care of herself
These are things that you do well, enjoy doing, etc.

What are your weak points (pick two)? People who lie, if Nina finds out she was lied to she gets pissed. Being confronted/yelled at.
These are things that piss you off, make you upset, etc.


Might need a little tweaking, but here it is.

Write up the Male characterin the thread, please, Kerri, and send me the Female by PM, and we'll figure out which is best. You guys are starting to make me feel like we're actually going to get this rolling. =^_^=

While I think that 6 characters is light for the overall story, I'm willing to give it a go rather than kick it down the road a few months. And... if two guys sign up, I'm perfectly willing to give a Hollywood drama moment for the characters to realize that there's more women than men... ;)

Character name: Michael Jonathon Ashford

Age: 32

Gender and Sex: Straight Male

Basic personality: Mike is a jaded individual, after serving in the military, going to war, and losing his leg in a bombing while on foreign soil, he is a very cautious when getting close with people. His recovery went well, mainly because he was determined to do whatever needed to get back on his own two feet, even if one was a prosthetic. He is a man that many look up to, although he rarely sees that, and doesnít understand why, after all, he feels heís just living the way anyone would.

What happened to turn you off relationships? Mike was happily married, or so he thought, to Monica. They married 2 years before he was sent overseas. He missed her while gone, but did everything in his power to make it easier on her, skype calls as often as he could, and always trying to be understanding. He missed her incredibly, but he always put up a strong front when talking to her. He wanted to be her rock. He returned home from the Medical Center, only to be greeted by a very pregnant wife at the airport. The shock and discovery completely shattered him, but everything suddenly made sense, no wonder she hadnít been willing to come visit him after his first couple of months in the hospital. She obviously must have been getting larger and larger, and she wouldnít have had the benefit of the drugs he had been on to keep him unaware of her condition. She told him then that things were over, that his things were packed and at his motherís house, and that the home he shared with her was occupied by her and someone else.

What are your strong points (pick three)?
These are things that you do well, enjoy doing, etc.
Camping, hiking, running, anything outdoors and active. He mainly does these things alone.
Shooting, he loves to go hunting, or to go shooting at the range
Anything that people think heís unable to do because of his disability, he loves to prove people wrong.

What are your weak points (pick two)?
These are things that piss you off, make you upset, etc.
Talking about the war, or the things heís done there, political talks of any kind, and those who disrespect those in the military.
People telling him what he can and canít do because of his disability, those who greatly underestimate him because of the loss of his leg.

Character name: Daniel Macon

Age: 24 going on 40

Gender and Sex: Male and straight, but he's had some past morning afters that have left him haunted.

Basic personality: Wounded nice guy. Recovering addict.

What happened to turn you off relationships: Dan grew up a nice guy in the burbs with decent grades and playing sports and just being a normal kid. Then he met Stacy. An high school love affair with the new bad girl in town spiraled into drugs and debauchery of a sort that he can't speak of outside of therapy. Honestly, he has no idea how he won the karmic lottery and doesn't have some horrible social disease or a headstone. A nice cop in Vegas-- he still has no damn idea how he even got to Vegas-- scraped him off the street and got him into rehab before it was jail or dead.

What are your strong points (pick three)? 1) Hitting worse than rock bottom and then climbing back up in rehab and subsequent recovery made Dan realize that he's stronger than he thinks he is. 2) Likes to be busy, to keep moving and get shit done. That goes withÖ 3) Creative as hell. Sketches, paints, dabbles in writing, plays the guitar, has a passable singing voice.

What are your weak points (pick two): 1) His high school moniker of 'Macon-Bacon'. Taunting is for punks. 2) Being over-manipulated. Dan understand that there's a certain amount of manipulation that goes on in any relationship, be it a lover or the gal at the drive-thru. It's when someone revels in it that his ire gets up. Been there, done that. 3) Hates laziness/weakness of character due to his former life.

A picture or detailed description of my appearance: pale brown hair, a tad scruffy with strikingly bright blue eyes.
He's a buff guy because exercise helps keep the demons at bay and strengthens a formerly abused body. He never wants to be that wasted junkie again.
Has some scars that make him look like a war survivor, as well as some deliberate ones to remove some ink that needed to go.
Sometimes gets the shakes and will withdraw from people and activity to calm down. Not a good idea to press him when he gets that feral look in his eye.
Looks older than his 24-- acts it too-- due to his experiences. Few would suspect him to be younger than 30 or so.

Don't sweat it, we'll provide you with a code set for that. =^_^=
Edit: Although if you want to work it out so you know how to do it in the future, by all means go ahead.

I'll probably just wait for the official code, but I'll ask if what I was thinking would work.  Basically what I did was go to the post where the picture was, hit the "Quote" option so that any coding would show up, copied the line that started with the img tag, and was going to paste it somewhere on my character sheet, probably around the description field.  I'm thinking that even if I do put the picture in, I might leave the description I came up with in too, just for reference for my own self, so I don't get mixed up and say she has green eyes instead of blue, or something similar.

I will most likely get the first bits available tonight, after we get home from some off-site chores we need to take care of.

At the moment, we've got exactly three things stopping us from launching tonight.

1.) Finding out whether Black Howling is interested in playing.
2.) If he's interested in playing, whether Kerri wants to play her Male or Female character (It'll be 4-3 either way if Black joins).
3.) Getting a sleepy co-GM up to help lay out the pre-show interview questions.

The fact that I don't have the Sims house designed yet has NOTHING to do with this delay. None at all. =>_>=

LIES! BLASPHEMY AND LIES!

Edit: I bet it all has to do with the SIMS house.

Right now in the approved character thread, I'm seeing 2/1... Am I missing something here?

The others just haven't posted their character sheets over. Slow start of weekend. Everyone must be busy.

I went through all of the character sheets, and if we take it as it stands, we have six - 3 male, 3 female, with you as your male character. As Keaira said, not everyone has bumped them over to the other thread.

Okay, well, if Black joins, I'll finish up my female character sheet, (sorry I haven't done that yet, I've been busier than I thought I would be) if he doesn't I'll go ahead and play my guy. Depending on his answer, I'll get the other character sheet in to you shortly... or post the finished one in the other thread. Feel free to pm me and give me a good swift swat if I hold anything up.

Sorry to hear about your internet problems. You're definitely welcome - if you join, then Kerri can go be her blonde bombshell (or whatever female character she's actually trying to create) without problems, regardless of whether we hear back from Black Howling. I can delay a day or so to make the game work better, definitely.

The weekends tend to be slow, anyway.

Says nothing about Sims maps...

APROVE ME, PLEASE!!!



A picture or detailed description of my appearance 

Character name: Matthew D'Arnaud Kinkaide  "Matt" or "MDK"

Age: 38

Gender and Sex: Straight Male

Basic personality: About as easygoing and laughable as you can get.  Kevin is a real charismatic and lovable guy.  He has many friends and loved ones around at all times.  Since he is a teacher and a coach, he also has former players and students around.  But, Kevin does have a dark side as well.  When he gets pissed, he gets pissed.  He can be very explosive and violent.  Not often, but it can happen at times.  Has been known to be on the freaky side as well...

What happened to turn you off relationships? Chole and Matt were college sweethearts.  Matt is from Canada, and made his way to Pittsburgh for school.  He met Chole and they were madly in love.  She was an asipring lawyer, and Matt was a teacher/coach/wrestler.  As they grew into adulthood, Chole's career took off.  She became big time and wanted to move to Boston.  Matt was a new teacher and coach at an area high school, and he was set as an assistant football coach, wrestling coach and could pursue pro wrestling on the weekends.  They tried to make it work, but Chole outgrew Matt.  She worried more about the money and power, and Matt fell by the wayside.  She did move to Boston... without Matt.  He was left back in Central Pennsylvaina by himself.  He is a coach at Steen High School.  He fell into a depression, and worked out of it by wrestling more and more.  His character changed, and it felt good.  He also began exploring more deviant things...

What are your strong points (pick three)? Talking with and meeting new people (especially about sports or teaching and while drinking Coors Light), working out/physical stuff, Mental Challenges
These are things that you do well, enjoy doing, etc.
What are your weak points (pick two)? Dishonest people, Users (as far as people who use other people)
These are things that piss you off, make you upset, etc.

Still looking for more players. The game is just barely starting, and the current count is 4 women, 2 men.
