Town: Silver Springs, CO
For those who are interested in being a part of the Western RP, I have decided to set up a few more setting ideas.
Above is a map of the town, where it is located in Colorado and the population. Obviously this is a small community, a new town still in the wild west though there is some law and order to be found.
If you are interested and would like to submit a character please use the above form to create your character and PM the profile to me! Maybe we will get this town rolling soon!
A couple things I want to include in the group game....
1. Please be sure you will be around for the actual game. In previous RPs I have noticed a trend of people wanting to join a game and create a character but then....they disappear and never actually post more than once or twice. If you are not sure you will have time or you think you might disappear after a week or two....um...please don't join?
2. I believe in storytelling. In every RP there are times when a post will only need one or two sentences, that is normal and to be expected. However......as the NORM, I expect people to post replies with at least 2 paragraphs, 3 sentences each. That is not much to require for those who truly want to tell a story, which is what I expect for those I RP with please. I like to make my posts several paragraphs long and would like my writing partners to feel the same way.
3. Homosexual characters and couples are welcome in this RP. It would be a sticky situation, filled with difficulties in the old west but if you want to go for it, I welcome it!
My two characters~~~
Name: Belle Fredrickson
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Physical Description: The perfect whore, or so she has always been told. 5'3/118 lbs./36C/22/36 Small body frame, thick wavy blond hair(natural) that falls to hips. Big brown eyes that hold shadows and loneliness, soft silky lips that are naturally pink and plump. She is small but with the curves of a voluptuous woman, rarely wears makeup as she has smooth, colorful skin that beckons men to touch.
Personality: Belle is a mixture of many various personalities. Having spent her life in the business of pleasing others she tends to wear a mask, making many wonder who the real Belle is. On the one hand she is a fighter, never allowing anyone to push her around or tell her she cannot do something she wants to do. Hot tempered and known to smack a man's face or tear a room to shreds once she snaps. Then again, Belle is a people pleaser, never letting her smile fall, though many can see the falseness of her grins. She is desperate to have the approval of others, trying hard to be happy and respectable at all times. In private....nobody is really sure.
History: "You were born a whore's get, you will die a whore's get." Belle will never forget her mother's dying words and she will never believe them.
Belle does not know who her father is, he could be any one of a hundred men who passed though Denver, CO. Her mother was the daughter of a whore and thus the tradition was to continue with Belle. Raised in a fairly well ran whore house in Denver, Belle was introduced to her first customer at 13 years old. Her mother took great delight in the $20 she sold her little girls virginity for. Belle worked in the office of the house as much as possible however, paying close attention to the money matters, the business side of things, her mind soaking up everything she could and her heart making plans for a better future for herself. Saving every penny she could get her hands on, Belle waited for her moment of escape to come. Two years ago the time finally arrived.
Her mother lay dying of some unknown disease, her body ravaged by the horrible abuse it had endured. Belle told her mother of her dreams for a better life, her mother made sure she set her daughter straight with her last breath. Belle decided she would not allow her mother to be right, she took her savings....and the savings of the whore house owner and disappeared into the wilds of northern Colorado.
The residents of Silver Springs know Belle in a fallen woman, she cannot hide that whore stain she has in her eyes. Unable to prove this however, she has been accepted into the community, though her hold on acceptance is very very fragile. She owns the local hotel and works hard to make her business a success. A small restaurant is in the hotel and Belle's has become the hot spot in town for food, gossip, and chatter. She has been told her hold on respectability cannot last unless she marries a honest man but Belle is staying stubborn, the idea of being under a man's rule repugnant to her after the life she has led. What respectable man would have her anyway.....
Name: Annie Doyle
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Physical Description: Sweet, angelic, and soft. 5'6/132 lbs./36C/25/37 Thin and willowy yet soft and curvy enough to catch men's attention. Raven black hair that falls in tight thick curls all the way past her bottom. Soft brown eyes that remind everyone of chocolate, pale creamy skin that has never been burnt by the sun or harmed by illness. Strong body, ready for hard work, though she is clearly a proper lady born and bred. Her stubborn chin and pert little nose gives a small clue as to how tough she can be.
Personality: Quiet and fairly subdued, Annie is relaxed and not one to get worked up...unless pushed. Fiercely loyal to those she cares for, Annie can be hell with a shotgun and is an excellent rider. Dreams of being a wife and a mother, wants a home of her own and a man who she can respect. She is happy and spirited, though somewhat innocent and naive where men are concerned. Hard working and sweet to a fault.
History: Born and raised on a small horse ranch in Tennessee, Annie has arrived in Silver Springs, CO looking for a dream. Her mother died when she was only 11 and her father married again within a year. She has 3 half-siblings, all of whom she adores and loves and practically raised as her own. Her stepmother has no use for her, causing her trouble constantly over the years.
Annie was engaged to the the local preacher's son but he was killed in the War Between the States in 1862, leaving an 18 year old Annie devastated and alone. Over the last few years her situation at home has become intolerable and Annie realized she wanted more from life than to simply exist. Deciding to leave the devastated Southern States and try for a life in the West, Annie signed up to be a mail order bride.
She has just arrived in Silver Springs to meet her intended, full of hopes and dreams....and more than just a little fear.
