Rock and Roll Dreams (Band Recruitment Roleplay)CLOSED!
« on: October 14, 2015, 10:44:45 PM »
In search of an manipulative, sleazy, greedy manager! Please apply while still available, just message me for more details!



To reach our dreams we must go beyond our own limits, to excel and put everything on the line...but if we make it, will it be worth it?


Every teenager at one point in their life has always dreamed to be part of a famous band sometime or another, who wouldn't want that life? The fame, the wealth, the recognition?Millions of fans lining up just to hear your music, your woes and dreams put to lyrical form, there is little doubt the appeal in becoming famous in the rock and roll world and yet it's an straining if not fleeting pipe dream for many.
This is the story of one such band, a group of friends who's dream to make it big has finally come true after years of struggling and putting their hearts out to be smashed time and time again. All the disappointment and suffering finally seemed to pay off, but now that the hard part is over what will it be like now that they're growing in popularity?

What I'm looking for in this story is the day to day life of our band, their own inward struggles as the pressure of fame burdens them, how they cope and what sort of drama may occur. Maybe there is back stabbing that could result in the band splitting? Maybe one member can't take the fandom and simply dives into whatever vice to cope? Maybe romance ensues and brings more turmoil than what they could have ever expected? It's all on the table, and really something I want to experience in.Along with fame many outside forces could be turning heads, a few stalkers and obsessive fans, the wear and tear of the lifestyle on the road, groupies getting over their heads and even egos getting out of control;there are many possibilities.

I am looking for a few key roles to be taken, this short list can be altered and such but we need them mainly to of course bring the band together.


Singer
Drummer
Lead Guitarist
Back up Guitarist
Keyboard- Soft maybe
Manager- Inquire in PM
Groupies/Assistants (No more than 2)



Rules:


So because I am apparently an glutton for self punishment I decided on another group idea I've had tinkering in the back of my head for a while, as I have only one other group story and it's going fairly well. By no means am I an expert yet, though I figured I would give another one a chance. That being said, I will not tolerate drama.The first little snippet of it I will not hesitate to kick people out. In the past I've seen drama completely tear a story apart, so please for the sake of common decency just try to be respectful to others okay? If there are any issues don't hesitate to message me and I will clear up the matter quickly.

As far as posting length I want to maintain at least 3 to 4 paragraphs if not longer as my normal rules apply to this as well; no one liners and god moding. I want to create a story full of emotion and depth, so posts should be detailed and be much more than sheer reaction if it can be helped. Any OOC chatter will be in it's own thread that I will set up as the main thread is nothing but IC posts.

I live in South Carolina so my time zone may vary compared to others, that being said I tend to post in the later afternoon going to the wee hours of the morning as I tend to not sleep all that well. Some posts may need to be paused in order to get into a routine though that doesn't mean we skip over due to an inactive partner. There may be posts that can further explain your own until we can move the story along, but try and be courteous to others given we are all in different time zones. That said as well I at least want one post a week from all players, nothing too extreme but any inactivity longer than an week unless stated will result in a character being taken out in some form.

As always all are welcome so don't be shy, as well as if anyone has anything to add do message me as I don't bite too hard ;3
This story in particular will have sexual elements as well as drug abuse, alcohol, and most anything that can be associated with the rock and roll lifestyle.




If interested please message me with the sheet as well as any other questions you may have. If accepted I will message privately, so do not bother me on the matter. Those who are accepted will have their character sheets listed on the OOC thread, unless specified that they want their character to remain secret or not. Along with the character sheet I will require a sample post, to narrow the decision.
Please list in this sort of format:

Name:
Age:
Sex:
Orientation:
Height:
Weight:
Character description (pictures are accepted):
Personality:
History:




As well as character sheets, if there are any questions feel free to ask them here and I will answer as best as I can. Thank you and all be well.

I might be interested in playing a bass player who develops a drug habit.

I would like to know what posting length you are looking for.

I know you mentioned 3-4 paragraphs but that seems to mean different things to different people.

I prefer a word count range, which is easier to uniformly apply. So what would be the word count equivalent of those 3-4 paragraphs?

Thanks!

The only positions that are open are what is on the list.

I mean a paragraph is 4 sentences, so really I'm not sure what the word count would be. If I had to guess I would maybe say at least semi literate and up, so complete sentences and no one liners.

Well to give you an idea, this is what I would consider three paragraphs:

Is that more, less or pretty much the same as what you had in mind?

 I usually don't do word counts only because an sentence is not always the same length and such, so you can write a lot of words down but it's not very complete.
I read over the link and I'm sorry but you have a lot of short, fragment sentences as I am looking for something a bit more literate and complete.

That is fine. Now I know.

Does gender matter? Also are we looking at anime type pictures or real people pictures?

Bio is like personality, traits, quirks.
History is like family and how they got into music.

Great, that means we have an bassist and lead guitarist at the moment.

Still need singer, drums, back up guitarist, and keyboard.

Not to mention we have three roadies, but can certainly use more.

Putting in my interest as Drummer based on faceclaim Skin Diamond.

What kind of music would we be playing? Personally I'm more of a funk and rnb girl, but I can go for some old fashioned Pop, Rockband maybe through Nu Metal (Evanescence / Within Temptation direction). Not sure I'd find myself in the direction of black, death, or speed metal.

Rolling around and heavily debating between... Singer and back up guitarist.

I've played a decent amount of singers before but also a really big role to take on. Oh the debate is real!

Working on my profile now but I do have one question...

Is there a particular age preference range?

Hmm those are quite the choices...

It's up to you deary though, so don't feel pressured for one or the other really.

As for age it doesn't matter, as long as they are at least over 18 I'm happy; mostly so we don't have kids touring around the states with worried parents in the mix.

Another note drummer has been taken!
