Legends Never Die
Heroes get remembered but legends never die
I'll only risk my life for two things...Love and RevengeThe Story:
Rose Morgan was the youngest child to hard working parents. Her father and mother fought tooth and nail to make it across an unforgiving landscape, fought even harder to help friends and strangers make it in a small town. Copper Creek. It was small, modest, filled with hard working farmers and the odd man and woman who just wanted a quiet place to live their lives. Her daddy, Earl Morgan was the town Sheriff and he worked to keep everyone safe from the bandits and trouble-makers who occasionally flew through the town.
When the Chance brothers came into town, their Renegades hot on their trail, the entire town ceased living. Rose had no idea the trouble they'd bring with them, or the ways they'd forever change her life and the lives of so many others. The Chance brothers were known murderers, scoundrels and criminals. They're growing reputation had even reached her small town. When her daddy and several other men tried to ask them to leave, the brothers killed them with a smile on their lips and pleasure in their eyes. Then they let loose their Renegades on the town.
She'll never forget the sound of the screams as long as she lives.
Rose suffered that night, as did many others. The town was nearly destroyed, many died. By the time the brothers had finished 'playing' with them, there were precious few of them left. Afterward, Rose buried her family, her dad, her mother, her brother and sister. For what felt like an eternity afterward, she was consumed, by the memories they'd left her with, the knowledge that she was alone. Many of the survivors left, but some stayed, out of the need to rebuild their home, and some because they had no where else to go. Rose stayed for a time, she became a woman obsessed with the brothers, with news of them, and with making them pay for what they've done. It was the reason she drew breath, the reason she kept going, even when everyone else was gone.
The story will take place two years after the attack on Copper Creek. Rose Morgan, aka The Nightingale has left her home and is making a name for herself as a bounty hunter and gunslinger. The Chance Brothers are big time criminals and corrupt industrialists, who've moved on from petty thievery and murder to bigger ambitions. This story is about a quest for vengeance, the lines between revenge and justice, and the price of it all. It's about Rose meeting and falling in love with a outlaw with his own personal ties to the brothers, and them coming together against The Chance's and their Renegades.
How together, with a misfit band of outlaws, manage to take down one of the most powerful groups in the Wild West, and forever make a name for themselves in history through their deeds. Setting:
Wild West - 1870's sometime. I'd like to keep the general feeling and vibe of the old west as accurate as we can, though of course, changes will be make for the story etc. Keywords:
Romance. Love. Blurred lines of Justice and Vengeance. Legends. Main Character Death. Love Lost.
The Price of Revenge. Wild West. Seeking:
The male character. I'm looking for someone to play the Outlaw, the second half of this dynamic duo with his own deep history and a personal connection to the Chance's and Renegades. The connection could be as straight forward as he was a member of the Renegades, but left for whatever reason. He could be the third brother with his own personal vendetta against the elder siblings. He could have suffered a loss at their hands like Rose. I'm pretty open to what could work here.
I'd like for him to have a visual [real human person please and thank you] but his personality, and personal background are entirely up to his creator. I do have a fondness for dominant - alpha male types. Need To Know:
I intend for this to have a gritty feel, due to the setting and nature of the story line, but I love some lighter moments to help break up anything to heavy or dour. I do want the two main characters to be in a relationship/romance/ fall for each other. I also want one of them to die at the end of the story, right now, my mind is pretty much thinking it'll be Emma who eventually dies toward the end of their grand adventure, but I'm open to discussing that particular aspect.
I'd also like my partner to help me in moving the story along, contribute their own ideas to the plot and story, as well as help run a few NPC's of varying importance. Like the Chance Brothers.
I don't know where I'm going
Only God knows where I've been
I'm a devil on the run
A six gun lover
A candle in the wind
You ask me if I've known love
And what it's like to sing songs in the rain
Well I've seen love come, I've seen it shot down
I've seen it die in vain
And I hope you'll understand
'Cause I've lived life to the fullest
Let this boy's die like a man
Staring down a bullet
Let me make my final stand...
