~*Interest Check: Life in a Rock band*~
« on: June 11, 2013, 03:40:13 PM »
~*Life on the Road with a Rock Band*~

The story is about a local band on the road to hitting the big time.  The band is based out of San Diego Ca. having also toured through most of Southern and Northern Ca playing gigs and shows.  The are about a month a way from their first really big out of state gig.  Opening a show for an already popular and successful band out of New Jersey.  The gig will take them out of sunny Southern Ca and into the heart of the big apple where they are scheduled to play for 4 nights. 

Also accompanying the band on their trip is Elliott DeFey... road journalist  working on her last year in school to get a degree in Photo Journalism (Played by Nevaeh).  As her final project for school she will be riding along to document life on the road with the rock band Sole Regret.  (Elliott will also be paired up with my character the lead guitarist/back up vocals.

This idea actually started out as an idea for a solo game.  In the process of coming up for names and pics for the band members my partner for the game Nevaeh thought that this game would actually be a lot more fun as a small group game.  After some thought and arm twisting.. (kidding of course) I began to see things her way and decided that it really would be much more fun with a group than just the two of us playing out all the parts needed. 

In the process of brainstorming the game we came up with Models to serve for the images of the band members.  Their names and personalities will be completely up to you to decide upon.  Although we would like for one of the band members to be bi sexual but keeps this little secret to himself.  We also thought it would be interesting if one of the band members was into bondage.  This particular band member may even have a girl friend who will be traveling with the group.  The last idea we would still like to see is a nic name we came up for the drummer.  They call him "Sticks" not because of the drumming but because of the fact he is because he has a very well "endowed"  But the images we really would like to keep for looks we decided upon for the band.  Aside from the band members we are also looking for a possible Manager, bus driver, roadies and a few girlfriends/groupies.  The pictures for these characters will be completely up to those who wish to play the parts just as their names and personalities.  Choice of band members will be on a first come first serve basis.

~*Photo Journalist and band members*~

Elliott DeFey road journalist   AKA:  Elli
Played by: Nevaeh

Model: Carmen Bala



Lead singer/rhythm guitar
Played by:    Strifesblaze7

Model: Myles Kennedy   
 

Base player
Played By:    roninc30

Model: young Paul Stanely


Keyboard player
Played by: EnglishMaster

Model: Ben Lovett


Drummer
played by:    eiselmann

Model: Jukka Nevalainen


Lead Guitar/backup vocals   Edward Theodore Swanson AKA:  E.T.
Played by: Nim

Model: Andy Alexander





As Nevaeh just mentioned we would like to see 2-3 posts a week for the game.  Barring real life issues that we all know pop up on occasion.  If anyone ends up vanishing for more than 4 weeks and has a spot writing for a band member that person will be replaced unless there is communication with either myself or Nevaeh that you will be gone.  We can always write in a substitute band member if need be.  Until you can return to game.  The band members are key to the game so we do need to keep those spots filed.  however we also know that sometimes people lose internet or become suddenly extremely ill and people vanish for months at a time.  (I know it happened to me... tis not fun.  lolz) you will of course be more than welcome to return back to the game again. 

As far as paragraph length 1-2 paragraphs will be fine as long as you are giving who ever your writing to enough information to write a decent post back to you.  Think about it as if you were reading a book.  Would you really want to pick up a book where all that was written were two sentences being passed off as paragraph with out giving a hint of detail?

Stifeblaze, can you pretty much commit to a minimum of three posts a week?  I mean we realize RL comes first but we don't want the game just held up if one person can't post.

Nice start Strifesblaze7

Also when you do his personality, if he is a womanizer or anything like that please put it.

I know this is a rough draft and that's fine just saying.    Its just so others will know and them not all be the same way.

And that is great but anything like that, remember to put it in..... we can't have a rock band of loners and such.  LOL So if he likes to party some then put it in there. 

I'm just saying we should know as much that way about them going in to help with the game and so we don't all have the same quirks.  LOL

I'm working on a rough draft as well and I'll add to it when I get time..... as the next two weeks for me will be busy.

Character name: Edward Theodore Swanson  AKA: E.T. a nic name given to him by the band and caught on from there.

  Age: 26

  Position: Lead Guitarist / backup vocals

  Description :


   
Edward is 5'10" 210lbs and covered nearly head to foot in tattoos.  Bald, clean shaven with gauged ears. 

  Character Personality:  In the public eye E.T. plays the typical roll of a Rock Star where partying and playing the field are supposed to be the norm.  Away from the band in his own time Edward is far more reserved even a tad on the quiet side.

  Hobbies - Interests: when he's not practicing his guitar E.T. Loves to skateboard when he gets the chance hanging out with some of his old buddies from his Junior High and High School days.  His band however E.T.'s number one love and passion.  Performing is what he lives for.  He loves the thrill of being up on stage and performing for large audiences.

Character name: Joshua(Josh) Reichmann aka Sticks

  Played By: Eiselmann

  Age: 24

  Position: Drummer
 
 
  Description : as per picture above Slim 6ft1 small goatee otherwise clean shaven and short hair.

  Character Personality: At heart he's a good guy , isn't into the drinking and drug culture, but neck deep into the sex and rock and roll, when it comes to women as long as its legal and has hot packaging he's up for it, when it comes to woman and sex there's no such thing as too many. Takes his drumming very seriously and regards it as a craft, the only thing more important to him than his kit, his band and women...is his family, he's still incredibly close to his supportive family and most especially his young daughter age 3 Emma. (The mother subsequently married an old fart who she definitely married for his money ...Josh regularly has sex with the mother of his daughter despite her being married)

Josh can be a calming influence when tempers rise on the rare occasions when his temper flares you know he's serious
 
Hobbies - Interests: His daughter, family, his kit, women, band and x box in that order.

I really liked the bio  eiselmann.  I'll be setting up an OOC thread for the game probably either tonight or tomorrow. 

We're still short a Base Player, keyboardist  a couple roadies, girlfriends/groupies and possibly a manager though the manager wont really be needed if we don't get one.  We can always just NPC that part.

ok third time is a charm and got the players we need right this time.

Hi.  I don't know if I can offer a different angle on keyboards: an Englishman.  He's also into bondage (which would enable me to indulge my bdsm side :)).  I imagine him as writing material for the band.  He didn't quite mean for all this to happen, though it excites him.  He's split up with his long-term girlfriend over it, she's English and went back home, didn't take to America as he did.   He has aspirations as a writer, this might draw him to Elli?  But he certainly has aspirations for rope and chains, hm, who might he find to be interested in that?

Well, let me know if you're interested.

The picture is of Ben Lovett who is the Mumfords' keyboards player.

Hello EnglishMaster,

Long time no see.  We had originally wanted to have only the pics used which we chose for our solo but with the keyboardist that was one we kept going back and forth with and finally just settled with.  If you wish to change the pic used in this case you will be more than welcome to do so. 

I loved the ideas you have proposed for him except that Elli and E.T. are actually set up to become a couple in the game.  Hopefully there will be plenty of groupies or even some interest for someone to become girlfriends to the band members who do not yet have one.

Welcome EnglishMaster,

Doesn't mean that Elli and your guy can't be friends and discuss writing and such.  Might do for E.T. to have a little bit of jealousy to bring him out.  *grins at Nim* 

Still I'm sure she could use a friend along the way.

Thanks for wanting to join our little game.
