The Old WestOld West...OOC
Hey all, looking to put together an old west group RP. One concerning a group of bank robbers that well...Go around and rob banks. That is the basic idea and can be adapted to fit around the type of people we get as long as they breach none of these rules...
1:) The year is 1875. KEEP THIS IN MIND! Guns, events, all that! If it happened in 1876, it hasn't happened yet.
2:) This is going to be realistic as possible, meaning no invented guns, no magic, no super abilities. You ever see the movie 'Appaloosa', that is how these guns fights are gunna be.
3:) Ladies, I'm sorry but sexism is alive and in full swing. Remember that when making characters. I'm not saying your gal can't shoot a gun and be good at it. I'm saying they can't walk around like any swinging dick in cowboy gear and expect for everyone to be fine with that. Basically no Sharon Stones from 'The Quick and the Dead' *great movie though!*
4:) This is not so much a rule as just a way to get attention. In rule 2:) I stated that gun fights would be quick. To make it that way I am thinking of incorporating the dice system. That being said, quality of post, character history, and situation will have a lot to do with how I may add or subtract from that roll. If everyone is alright with that we can keep it, if someone has other suggestions I am open to them.
5:) Have some damn fun! It's suppose to be fun. Suggest idea's, make observations on characters and just be polite.
6:) That's it! Post in here if interested and invite friends who you think might like in as well. Profiles and who is and isn't accepted will begin later. Right now, everyone's welcome!
Name: Donald 'Don' Brescott
Physical Description: Tall with short dark hair, Don has a constant five o'clock shadow and tanned skin which makes his dark blue eyes stand out. He has wide shoulders and is slightly built, though lean would be a better word. His clothes are simple in that he wears either black or dark brown trousers with standard brown boots, white shirt with a black or dark brown-light brown mixed paisley vest over top a dark brown coat or black depending on the rest of the outfit. In the end he appears far less a thug some would consider him to be.
Weapons Carried: One 1875 Army Colt and one 1873 Winchester Rifle chamber to the .45 Long Colt. Also two knives, one a bowie kept at his waist, a far less flashy one than some others he's seen, and a small straight blade kept in his right boat.
Name: Daniel 'Pretty Boy' Venarson
Physical Description: Somewhat lanky with long arms and legs, he does have muscle to him. His hair is short and light brown, his face pale with a mustache against it and his green eyes. Always wears some kind of brown, usually with a blue and brown mixed paisley vest and a hat of a brown almost gray colour to it. Handsome, he is used to the attention of woman and is still young enough to give them a good time.
Weapons Carried: Two 1875 Army Colts, a single somewhat flashy, but not overly flashy bowie knife at his back. And his baby, a 12 gauge double barrel shot gun.

Name: Juan Cardozo
Physical Description: A sombrero covers his smooth, blue-black hair. His face is square with a strong jaw and thin lips. He is clean shaven when he's time for those niceties and sports a full black beard otherwise. He wears a worn, colorful poncho over a white shirt, brown leather pants and suede boots that once were brown but now are too covered with dust and grime to sport any recognizable color. Juan is left handed and wears his weaponry accordingly with the gun on his left hip, whip at the right and daggers strapped in a bandolier over his chest.
Weapons Carried: A colt 45 (six shots), several throwing daggers, and a whip coiled at his side.
