Welcome to the Anita Blake Alternate Universe



Under the Bright Lights of Vegas (Clicky for entire forum) is opening it's doors for the summer crowd to boost new plot lines featuring human interference, and missing preternatural creatures from Sin City's streets. This Big group game has been functioning and evolving since mid 2010. To keep our game going, we've rebooted to make it easier for you, the players to jump into the waters. We recently remade all the IC-threads and pushed the setting forward so it is easy to transition into the game. Which is good, since there will be no mountains of past IC stuff to read.
We have quite a few different species available as player characters from the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series by Laurell K. Hamilton. Since we are an alternate universe, we do not have any of the canon characters to play, or interact with. You do not need to know the series intimately to join! (See reference Anita Blake Wiki) We have links that can help answer your questions, as well as knowledgeable GM Staff. Below are some useful links to bookmark to read and keep in mind while you consider joining our ranks, or making a character profile to send to the GMs.



Links - Anita Blake Style
Rules & Guidelines
The Story so Far (Information &Updates)
New Character Profiles (PM Profiles to the GMs for approval- The Golden Touch ll Aiden ll Caela)



To help out, here are the playable character species with the active PC threads linked, as well as the Rules & Guidelines subpost! Please keep in mind all of our Game Specific Calls/Rules/Changes as you browse.
Our player characters include:
o1. Humans: Human Guidelines ll Active PC Humans
o2. Werewolves/Weretigers: Lycanthrcope Guidelines ll Active PC Wolves ll Active PC Tigers
o3. Vampires: Vampire Guidelines ll Active PC Vampires

Lastly, our newest addition to replace our Werehyenas are the Wereleopards: Wereleopard Guidelines ll Active PC Leopards.

Character Creation



Anything without a character quoted in Active PC lists is up for grabs unless otherwise specified. We also reserve the right to tell you 'no' flat out if we do not think you can handle the position, etc. After creating your character profile, send it to the three GMs to begin the approval process. We may, or may not, need you to change some things around to suit the universe as we have modified it to fit.
Just grab and use the template given below for you character writeup.  Remember that certain traits and weaknesses are universal with certain creatures, so make sure to check out the Anita Wiki for this information as well as the Rules & Guidelines.  Also, please do be mindful of the width and height of pictures you submit, adjust them when necessary.  And I cannot stress this enough, please do not fiddle with the code unnecessarily; keep the font, format, and colors untouched.  You may add pictures wherever you like, float them to the right or the left, just don't make it look ugly; thank you.

Code: [Select]

I would like to add, while this game has been going on for over two years.

We recently remade all the IC-threads and pushed the setting forward so it is easy to transition into the game.

Made the tweaks we talked about Goldie, and here's the finished CS! :D

Natalia “Lia” Smith



Age: 27
Gender: Female
Orientation: Straight
Classification/position: Wereleopard/Zakon
Eye Color: Dark chocolate, almost black
Hair Color: Chestnut brown with slightly reddish highlights in the sun.
Height: 5'9

Appearance:
At a statuesque 5'9, Lia, easily draws eyes with her creamy skin, dark eyes and riotous mane of chestnut curls that flow toward the center of her back. She usually has a small smile curving full lips and a glint in her gaze, as if she knows something she isn't sharing with those around her.

Alternative Appearance:
As a large black leopard she should be intimidating, perhaps even frightening, except that in this shape she tends to want to do nothing more than laze about on a warm rock and soak in the sun. Only a rumbling belly can make her stir and then she is a sight to behold as she hunts with all the grace and speed of a natural born predator.

Portrayed By: Vanessa Marcil

Character Talents: A good cook, painter, can play both the piano and guitar fairly well but not on a professional level, she is also an excellent shot with both a bow and a gun as well as being a skilled knife fighter and has a brown belt (G3) in Krav Maga.
   
Character Flaws: Lia has a bit of a temper on her and can be manipulated through her anger at times. She also tends to be stubborn and hates asking for help, thinking she should be able to handle just about anything on her own.

Character Abilities: Increased speed and agility and strength in her human form, some due to extensive training and some due to her feline nature. In her feline form she is at the upper end in speed and hunting ability.

Personality: Lia comes off as happy and sarcastic at times, with a quick wit and sharp tongue, though she is careful with her words not to deliberately seek to hurt anyone with them. With her airy demeanor it is easy to underestimate her and miss the predator that lies just under the surface, even in her human form. Loyal to the end she would die to protect any one of her Pard, though not before taking out as many of their enemies as possible! She can be the best friend you could hope for, or the most vicious enemy but she's usually willing to let the other person determine which she'll be.

History: Lia doesn't talk much about her past before she came to Vegas. Her Queen knows some of it, that she was made a part of one of the, experimental, groups the US military had for shifters (before it was determined that they were too dangerous and uncontrollable) for a time, after being infected while out with her unit and many of her combat skills come from her time in the military. She doesn't talk about her life before that, at all, with anyone, and let's people simply think anything from that her entire family is deceased to the idea that they disowned her because of her lycanthropy.

Since coming to Vegas she has worked a variety of jobs, from working tables at some of the casinos, to simply cashiering in the many gift shops that mark the hotels along the strips. She doesn't stay any of them for more than a year before she grows bored and moves on but while at each one she is well liked for her hard work, attention to detail, and ability to keep the customers that come in happy. She's still looking for something to be a “career” instead of just a job, but is happy enough for now so long as the rent and bills are paid.

 Anita Blake... Now here's a game I wanna get in on :)

 I've read about 10 books but didn't go beyond that, so I have a good feel of the universe and can answer general questions if they come up.

 Honestly I want to play a lycanthrope (type undecided, I'll have to look at species available as I doubt I'd want to be pack-less and at the whim of others), but I'll see later; Currently I'm reading through the threads, rules, etc and will reply once more when I have, perhaps I'll even have a full character concept ready.

Most of the time, the GMs will have it covered when questions come up, especially if it has a special rule.

I'm interested to see what you come up with.

 Sent you the first draft, I'll work on it in more detail in time to come and fully flesh him out; However I'm basing him from a few of my own qualities/quirks.

I'd consider playing if I can be a human hunter similar to Edward.

So you want to be a mercenary/bounty hunter essentially? This is a possibility, though you will need to be able to map out exactly how similar your character will be to Edward. When/if you PM the profile outline to the GM staff, we will be able to tell you which skill/abilities/etc will be possible, or need to be changed to suit UTBLOV.
