Lucerne, The City of Life

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by StarDust, Apr 11, 2013.

  1. Lucerne, or as most people know it, Alfalfa. No, this isnt about plants, more so, the meaning. In the language of the flowers, Lucerne means Life!

    Welcome to our humble city! Lucerne is a beautiful city, respectable in size, however nothing like New York or Chicago. Lucerne is dotted with green parks, nearly every shop and attraction imaginable. from an amusment park, to museums, botanical gardens and pet shops. Lucerne is a port city with an expansive beach and a diversity of water and land sports, as well as rich culture and ,modern technology. This is a city of second chances, a place to reinvent oneself, so come on, dont be shy! Make your life here, be who you want to be, because saying the sky is the limit would be an understatement!

    NOW that I've hooked you in... this RP is something ive found to be successful before. it is very relaxed, you can have as many characters as you want, live how you want and stir up whatever story you want! Jobs, Ages, everything is up to you, so i hope you can build some interesting stories. this is something i want to go on and on, to see characters grow and mature, depending on what age you start at, even get married and have kids. how many generations can this last? well thats up to you!

    Rules, i have only a few~

    -please no super natural, this is meant to be slice of life
    -im all into drama and possible character death for story building, but please dont go psycho killer, and if there is conflict, dont kill a character without that persons permission.
    -have fun! if youre not having fun, youre doing something wrong.
