dapoet, could you give me a list of the things that are set in stone for the female character?
In terms of age, appearance, personality, background and personal relationships. Thanks!
Yes, this is a story that has been written on other sites with varying success, generally ended after the writers stopped posting and they were forced to close due to inactivity, it's been written (pg-13) as a comedy more or less, in the very beginning, then was revised with new cast a while later with a different cast and some of the returning writers that wanted to continue, has spanned a couple different writing sites over the years until I came to Elliquiy.
The character of the farmers daughter or wife, actually started as a niece that was being sold to gamblers to pay her Uncle's losing hands and evolved as characters came and went. As for her appearance, the originals I dont' remember anymore, but the one that was used the most would be Rachel Nichols or a similar look, usually blonde, generally of the same build, generally 18-24, no older than 30 or the father (who is set in stone) is harder for me to cast properly for how I see him (In the previous versions he was played by Silas Welliver, spelling might be off from Deadwood, but most recent has been Peter Fonda).
The only relationships that are set, is that of her and her father, Pete Evans. The rest will depend on how the character starts, as far as if she is married, single, widowed is the same as married, but obviously no husband to have to deal with, only memories of him. Only other relationship is that of a adopted sister if that character was added, but it's not crucial depending on the character this is in regard to. The cast making up Sadlers Gang will be dependant on if I write them all, or if I cast them. I have done it both ways, usually if I write them all it's a tad easier to control the plot, but it also takes away interaction with others, so it's a matter usually if anyone actually wants to write a member or not and can go along with the flow.
Personality will largely depend on the situation she is placed in. I would imagine that someone living in Kansas in the middle of nowhere, perhaps homesick if there but her father, as an example is somewhere else and the husband has been gone for a long time, could be lonely and homesick, I imagine a little harder than perhaps someone living with certain comforts. But that said, if she's what I have come to refer to as a prairie whore, then she would still have the quailities I have mentioned, but likely wouldn't turn any of the men away from her bed for the right price, if she is the object of one or two of their advances, willing or unwilling, then that is another matter entirely. But really it will depend on how she starts and the situation she is being placed in. If the husband is there or there is a farm hand there, it might be very Little House on the Praire
in design, but with the twist of the gang coming in could go wrong in a number of ways, or could be nothing happens other than she sees no reason to stay there and goes with them. So for personality most of it will really depend on her situation and how the writer wants to present her in it.
color me intersted in this game, curious as to what roles you have available so far
Roles are all open. I will place mine based on what we need to tell the story after cast is in place. So for right now the only one that is in place is John Sadler, who is the leader of the gang; and then there will be another that runs the general store when they get to the town. Other that that the rest of the town and gang are open as well any other characters the writers can think to fit in this environment. I don't expect all charcaters to interact or for all the writers to depending on their stories, it's just not possible, but depending on the size of the cast of writers all might in one way or the other.
So for the most part what that means is: Sadlers Gang, which is made up of hardened criminals and former lawmen that have been one or the other over the years, might be one or two that joined up just because Sadler offered more to them than they had at the time. Then there will be the town itself with his basically on it's last legs..reminants of a bank and that can be seen and it will present itself as a town that was quite prosperous at one time, so if anyone applies as a member of the gang, think of what you want them to become more than what they were or currently are, unless of course they were a doctor or something like that which could roll over into the town.
