Indigo Way is quite the colorful place. Many LGBT people flock to this Chicago neighborhood to live. Here there is no fear of being called disgusting or an abomination, and there is no need to stay in the closet, for everyone here is among their brothers and sisters, and mommas and daddies, of the community. It's become quite the safe haven for many, but, of course, between the hot sex and merry times, the residents have their squabbles--what can you expect from a place full of queens? So, come, the residents of Indigo Way invite you to join in on the fun.
Hi, and welcome! Basically, this is a sandbox roleplay taking place in a fictional gay village in Chicago. Here's the setup at a glance:Sexualities:
The focus is on LGBT individuals, but heterosexuals are welcomed, too!Smut Level:
This roleplay will focus more on story, so conflict and character development are grand. That doesn't mean smut can't happen, but if you're just looking to get your rocks off, another roleplay might work better for you. The RP will be placed in ____. [I was leaning toward bondage because I don't want to limit kink too much, but, personally, I'm more light, and I'm afraid that tagging it as bondage will make everyone expect BDSM. Or am I overthinking this?]Post Frequency:
At least once a week, though it's understandable if real life gets in the way. Just keep us updated. Being gone for more than three weeks, without word, will result in removal.Post Length:
At least two paragraphs.Writing Style:
Humans, aged 18+. Otherwise, all character types are welcomed! Character ideas that could have a substantial impact on the roleplay, though, should probably be run by me first before tackling the skeleton. Up to 2 characters per person, if you can juggle both of them.

Indigo Way, located on the north side of Chicago, is a snug community full of various shops and eateries. Most apartments, such as Crystal Lake Estates, are better suited for the middle class, with an affordable one, called Parker Commons, tucked off in a southern corner, and a luxury high-rise, The Kensington, in the north, closer to the lake.
There will be a club. Otherwise, the exact establishments within the neighborhood can be primarily up to those who want their characters to run them, but for at least the club, there should be some additional player input. There'll be a limit on establishments: they must be unique from each other, so no two restaurants (a coffee shop can be separate from a restaurant) or two clothes stores, for example, and, at least initially, only a few will be accepted so we don't spread ourselves too thin. [Does this sound good?]
The time of the year in which we'll begin is open for discussion, but I'm thinking September or October. We'll begin with some kind of special event to get the ball rolling. With that said, October (obviously) offers Halloween, but if anyone has any alternatives for what events we could use, let's hear 'em!
As far as thread layout, everyone can have a room for their character, if they don't want to room with someone. As far as the other IC threads...[I'm really not sure. I'm used to there being only one IC thread, which would be easier to maintain, but I do wonder about the possibility of this gaining more than a handful of people, in which case one thread might not be such a good fit. But I also don't know how well creating a thread for each establishment would work if everyone were to create a thread for their character, since two threads will be devoted to OOC and characters. Would it be better to wait and see how many people join initially?]
When it comes to time lapses, we'll all stay within a two-hour period. [Or would one hour be better?]
I want to give more specifics on how quickly time will progress, but we'll see what the pace looks like when we start.
And that's all I have to say! Questions and suggestions are welcome! [Yes, this could probably use some suggestions!]
