THE TIES THAT BIND
Joining: TAKING CHARACTERS. Post a Bio, get a thumbs up, play.
Genre: Modern Real Lifey Soap Opera Drama
Location: Emerson, Pennsylvania
Timeline: Present Date
Emerson, Pennsylvania is a fast growing city; home to several wealthy families, established businesses and of course the occasional nutcase. It's a city like any other, but when skeletons come out - everyone has their story. Jeremiah Douglas has recently passed away - his death striking unsettling news to many people. A single event that ties the binds of otherwise unconnected lives.
Like in any soap opera, you are playing a character in this interesting city. There's no such thing as a quiet normal life for someone living in Emerson. There is always a mysterious murder, a cheating lover, a stalker, a big trial, dead babies, kidnappings, charity balls, and bitch fights. Life is a never ending whirlwind of dramatic events. Events that you bring to the table with your characters and their history.
Our story begins at the end of Jeremiah Douglas' funeral. He was an interesting man - but with secrets! Characters might know this man - or think they knew him! His death will bring up mystery and complications. How does it affect your character? You tell us. >:]
In a soap opera there are many character stereotypes! This list is just a few of the most common ones. Because this is a modern date real life setting, supernatural stereotypes are not allowed. These stereotypes are just suggestions! If you have your own unique ideas, by all means, run with them! Anything is possible in a soap opera!
Old Money Families: There are always a few "old money" families in a big city that seem to own many of the business, properties and even people in their pockets. These families have been around forever, possibly even able to trace their families back to European countries, and they are always surrounded by loads of personal drama or tragedies. There is always a murder or two in the family, missing members, bastard children, money woes, divorces, the black sheep, the queen bee, and of course a deep dark family secret.
Professional Criminal: Be you a mobster, professional thief, drug dealer, or embezzler, there are bound to be those very prominent professional criminals. But beware, when more than one comes on the scene, there is always a scuffle about who is the best and who gets the gold!
The Cops: Cops come in the form of detectives, police chiefs/commissioners, FBI agents, spies, and undercover cops. A cop can be the good guy hero, always looking to catch his man... or end up being the bad cop - paid by someone else to cover up crime, or being a criminal themselves. Cop characters tend to get in everyone's business, especially when there is illegal drama unfolding!
Teen Drama: One can't have a soap without everyone's kids going around and causing some trouble. Runaway teenagers, boyfriend stealers, prom night, or kids just getting involved in grownup affairs. You can count on the teens and kids to create their fair share of troubles!
Foreign Heir: A mysterious foreigner that just so happens to be; A) really really rich or B) heir to a royal thrown. In some cases all of these turn out to be false, and sometimes they are true, and then... they disappear or end up murdered! Whichever the case may be, this person is always very mysterious and very little is known about their past until something very major happens!
Savvy Business Person: Those smart, beautiful people that have their own business or are excellently perfect at what they do. Lawyers, doctors, owners of night clubs, a giant business empire or one really popular establishment. Almost all of the character stereotypes tend to be one of these successful people.

THE RULES OF GAMEPLAY!
To Aid in knowing what is acceptable for your characters and game play, here are some quick rules!
- The default bio template is very small, therefore you must fill out the whole template. If you want to use a larger template (one that contains more details) you are welcome! Just make sure you have game essentials.
- Please use a real life person for your character pic if you choose to use one. This will help add to the real lifey soap opera atmosphere. That means no anime, fantasy, etc, style pictures.
- You can have as many characters as you can handle, but keep in mind that we're not going to wait forever for you to get around to posting if you take too long. This means that if you haven't posted in over two weeks and your character is holding up the game, you lose your character to an unfortunate in game event. If you have to go on vacation or will be missing for an extended amount of time, we need you to tell us so we can protect your character. (We won't kill you. Maybe. >:])
- Don't forget that this is all about developing YOUR character. Everyone gets to have a chance in the spotlight, just like in real soap operas. So make sure you have a good back history for your character, and think of all the things you want to do and accomplish! Work with other characters to create intertwining plot lines... this game is only as good as the stories you create in it.
We are using a small mini-bio for character profiles. You are welcome to use one of the more detailed bio templates if you wish to expand deeper on your characters. Because we're using the smaller template, we expect players to put a lot of details in to these few sections, especially the character's history!
Needing more MALE teens and female adults!
General Appearance: Be detailed! hair color, eyes, slim, bulky, types of clothes, personal style, etc! (Again, please use real life people for any character pics.)
Current Goal/Purpose: (for example, what they are really working towards for the moment or in life.)
General Personality: Note how they behave with other people, as well as parts of their personality that is private or only shared with special people.
General History: Details are best! Their family, how they grew up, their profession or schooling, important people in their life, big events that changed them as a person, and what they are up to now! The plot behind your character... IE: "Someone from their past is trying to kill them." or "They are looking for a lost fortune." Remember that this is a soap opera, so get creative!
