Prohibition ran from 1919 to 1933 in the States.  We're in the early 1920's, yes.  :)

Everyone should have their roles, so jump in whenever you like!

"Did you see that hard-boiled Bull near the Moll's jalopy who pinched the goon at the dive with a heater at the Juice Joint? The hood who don't know nothing talking all bunk to the Dame who is the bee's knees, the It and has the finest gams about some hood who sells rods and took the swell for a ride?"

I added that to the main thread.  I mistimed and had to run to lunch just after I sent the PMs, so I forgot that useful detail. *blush*

It feels awkward to use "dialogue" when no one else is doing it. xP

The first vote is tough.  I'm glad I don't have to vote.  *grin*  You don't have to vote in your first post, no; just dive in and start roleplaying a little and see where things go from there.  That seemed to work all right in the Roses game.  :)

And bopping already?  Tsk.

I hate losing the first person especially.  It's so sad to see someone go so quickly... *sniffle*


On the plus side, though, I love all the gangster chatter.  It sounds great!   ;D

Though it was strange to see Stattick talking about vampires in a 1920s thread.

Oh, no, vamp is an old slang word that I added to the glossary a little while ago.  Heh.  It isn't short for vampire... I think it comes from 'vamping it up,' dressing up and acting all sexy.  :)
