Pains of the Old Country

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by NorwayFOO, Jan 20, 2013.

  1. Our little village of Alnicta, we all are on the balance beam of life hanging miles above the ground. Why do we stay up there you may ask. Well that only takes one word, tradition! For instants, we always cover our heads, arms and legs. We all live by tradition hear in our village as other villages start to change we manage to stay the same. Where did these traditions come from you may ask, the answer is quite simple... I don't know! Everyone has our roles, the Husbands are the head of the house. We have the final say over all decisions for our family's. We work hard all day to feed our wife's and children. The wife's are supposed to keep the house clean, quite, and proper so the husbands can come home and study the holy book. The son's are supposed to go to school and study the holy book at the break of dawn, when they finish that they head and learn the trade of their fathers. The daughters stay at home and help the mothers with the cleaning and cooking training to be the wife for whoever the father picks for them.

    "Without our traditions our lives would be a shaky as... as... as a fiddler on the roof!" (Fiddler On the Roof)

    Character Skeleton
    Appearance: (Realistic or descriptions please)
    Traditional: (Likes/dislikes the traditions)
    Job: (Only for husband: poor job such as cow worker, tailor, or a couple of richer jobs such as butcher)

    I will be the grandfather as my main character (someone can be his wife if they would like), as well as playing extra characters that will come in and out of people's lives.

    Try playing multiple characters
    If you play multiple characters try to keep them in different family's
    Try to make posts descriptive of feelings, maybe environment, set the mood
    Play off of others posts (if someone says its a cold night then don't post its a warm morning!)
    Please don't make the loner! Socially awkward is fine but no off to the side hating everyone people!
    Oldest should be married first (If traditional)
    Older men may talk to god about their problems (Some younger too)
    Woman normally have their first child around the age of 18-20
    Please do not play as a baby! (You can have one but its a side character!)
    Most men have beards

    Iwaku rules
    All older men must like the traditions
    No less then 2 line posts
    When posting try and keep as many characters in one post as possible
    No cursing! (this is a religious village though you can joke around and be good humored)
    Try not to post more than 3 times a day, we want this to move slowly so everyone can keep up!
    (More rules will be up later)
