    She is 22 and has been pretending to be male since she was 14, and has got very good at it?

    Don't forget that urinals weren't a thing back then, in fact most "toilets" were a hole in the ground with a wooden box over and a small shed built around it... And people very rarely had baths and rarely changed clothes...

    Of course if your question is the other way around - how does the leader know if no-one else does, well, she probably told [him/her]...

    If you really don't like that bit I can remove it.

    That’s true. I was just confused a bit. You don’t need to remove it. Just wanted to see a further explanation :)

    Just a head’s up for everyone, I’m going to be busy tomorrow through Sunday. I’m not sure how often I’ll be able to get on. Just a heads up. But I’ll be back, don’t worry

    I really want to do this RP so I’m way too eager to get back and figure things out if we don’t get more people. I’m fine with a small group that controls some other characters and such. I honestly prefer smaller groups for group RP’s.

    If we can’t get anyone to play the group leader, I’ll just double up as the Princess and leader. It might help us for sake of plot reasons if I do both. There will be NPC group members as well. People can still join the RP if they want to. But since it’s proving to be a tad bit difficult to get people, we can just do this and start it. I’m more than willing to do that. Smaller RP groups are easier to manage and plot with anyway, I’ve found too :3

    I have found that people don't like joining a group once it's going... I have also noted that while a smaller group is indeed easier to manage, it also folds more easily...

    However, I'm happy to mosey along with it and see what happens...

    Seeing as no one has posted yet for trying to be the Gang leader I will give it a shot and if not I will pick a different role

    Name: KissofDeathDeliliah
    (Delilah Sutton)

    Appearance: 6 ft, curvy. Outfit in spoiler
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Age: 35

    Sex: Female

    Sexuality: Bisexual

    History:
    Delilah grew up on a farm with her family a little ways out of town. They were always quite folk, never any problems with the law and never a problem with any gangs. Her father was a kind and forgiving man, never judging one who came to their doorstep looking for some work and food to fill his belly. Her father however offered refuge to the wrong man one day. A man not much older than Delilah at the time (16) came to their farm looking for work. He was kind, but it was clear that he was in rough shape. Delilah and her mother cared for the mans wounds and feed him and her father put him to work. He became a brother to her over the few months he stayed with him. She knew he didn't come from a good place but her and her family never let this cloud their judgement of him. He did honest work and that was all her father cared about.
    One afternoon, the law made their way to her family's farm, looking for the young man. Her father was an honest man and said he was there but asked the lawmen why they wanted him. He was their new hand and was doing honest work, whatever his past was no longer mattered, he was working to make an honest future. The law men looked at each other and laughed. One got down from his horse and went inside, she heard her mother scream and heard a gunshot, her father looked at her and she knew she needed to run. She could hear more gunshots behind her as she did. tears streaming down from her face she made her way into the barn climbing atop her horse she rode into the night. The lawmen never came looking for her.
    In the morning she made her way back to her farm only to find it torn apart. Her father dead on the front step. She knelt down to him and cried wishing she could understand why the law would kill him. What had he done, but help a man trying to turn his life around? From that day Delilah came to the conclusion that the law was not always good. That there were evil people in charge and good people trying to change things for the better even if their past was cloudy. She started her own gang and started taking down bad law, freeing innocents from wrongful incrimination and freeing those being forced into lives that the law choose to ignore. She became known as DeathKissDelilah because every evil lawman she kills she leaves a kiss mark on their cheek. She is now 35 yrs old and even though the law is still not pure, she keeps trying to fight it for the better.

    I know its longer than 2 paragraphs but I figured for a gang leader, there should be an explanation as to why she started a gang in the first place.​

    I absolutely love this character already. I’ll give you leadership position, specifically for your explanation of a gang. It makes sense.

    That’s interesting, I’ve had the opposite experience. I typically had experienced larger group RP’s crashing and dying relatively quickly, whereas the smaller groups tend to go farther. I think I’m all honesty that it depends on the people who are in it. If they want to continue, they will. If they don’t like the direction, then they leave. But that’s interesting to hear what you’ve seen, nonetheless.

    I’ll try getting a character sheet out today or tomorrow. I’m not sure when I’ll have the time to.

    I think it depends on the scenario and the group dynamic. The group game I ran for the longest had 25 people in it at it's height. The second longest and third longest were similar. I have found that, if you have a dynamic for getting new people in and existing people out, it doesn't help, but what always crashes a game is if every player character is "vital to the plot", because then it only takes one player dropping out and the game dies. Equally, I have learned that letting one player have too many characters is lethal...

    I have tried all sorts of things to keep a group game going and none of them have worked... About the only one that I have seen work is the continuity break reboot (in a game someone else ran) where it died, they left it a while and then restarted it with new players and new characters. Sadly, I've never had the opportunity to try that one...

    Hm, that’s, again, different from my own experiences with group RP’s. But that’s some info I’ll keep in mind. I created this RP with the intention that no one character is essentially supposed to be too important to the plot. Like the Princess, while she is an important plot point, the story can still go on without her. The intention with her is to bring up a possible, interesting plot point (and furthermore an interesting character that will have a definite character arc). But for her to be too vital to the RP, I have no intention of that. I think all of the characters need to have their own story, but also have the gang as the thing that unites them all that they all can share a similar storyline with.

    I suppose we’ll see how this goes. I’m going to try and start working on my character now.

    Name: Alexandria Winchester

    Appearance (real picture only, brief description optional):
    D6A60818-0614-4141-AC8D-E7EB6FF3D609.png 4CFF9EB5-B9F9-412E-B9FB-CF9E7132AF91.png


    Age: 29

    Sex: Female

    Sexuality (straight, bisexual, or gay/lesbian): The character is unsure. But now she leans bisexual

    History (Two Paragraph Minimum):
    Born to Edward and Victoria Winchester, the respective King and Queen of the British Empire, Alexandria was the only surviving daughter of the two, as their son died shortly after childbirth, Elizabeth grew up in Buckingham Palace, living the spoiled life of royalty so many wished they could have. Growing up, life wasn’t exactly easy, however. Her mother died when she was 15 years old from an illness that they couldn’t cure. This death drove her father, Edward, to become more cynical and ruthless with his power. He became bitterly angry that he did not have a son to take the thrown, and his view of his daughter was one that deteriorated as the years went on. The people grew to admire Alexandria, as she was kind and caring to all she met. People began to really like her as she grew older. But her father, Edward, wanted her to marry her cousin, a man who was charismatic and had a way of moving people he spoke with, so his name and blood lineage would continue to pass down the thrown. But Alexandria wanted none of it. The ensuing fight between the two caused a serious tear to appear in an already unstable relationship.

    Around this time, rumors started to float around that Alexandria had had some sort of intimate moment with a female worker at Buckingham Palace. It was said the two shared a long kiss. But, the identity of who it was remained a mystery. Edward, hearing of this, went ballistic. When he confronted his daughter about the rumors, she denied it. But Edward saw through the lies. He could not have a daughter be attracted to those of the same sex. His blood lineage could not be passed down through history. And to make things worse, the King has contracted an illness that was causing him to die. At this time, as Edward knew time was running out before he would die and Alexandria would take the thrown, he started having his nephew go around and build up a reputation for himself, while in secret, they started enacting a plan to get rid of Alexandria. They even went as far to stage events that made the nephew look heroic and like a leader. In secret, the nephew and King Edward, both with mutual interest of power, decided to have Alexandria kidnapped by human traffickers who would bring her somewhere remote and dispatch of her, leaving no trace of her so that their crimes would be unknown to the world.

    When the time came, the Kind had Alexandria drugged. When she was unconscious, they had the traffickers come and take her away to be killed. But when the traffickers got ahold of her, they had different plans in mind. Realizing the price she could bring, they decided to take her to America, where they had an established underground human smuggling business, and sell her into sex slavery.



    (The character is really supposed to be more uninteresting now. I plan to have a whole arc with her where she changes and becomes someone completely different, badass and interesting, just a head’s up.)






    Okay, with that out of the way, the way I was imagining this would start would be that the gang gets word of a new auction with people being sold, Alexandria being in it this one. The idea I had was that the gang finds the place it’s happening at, and kills the people there and sets the people free. There would be corrupt lawmen there and also politicians that would be bidders on the captive individuals. But the gang would arrive a bit too late, and most people would have already won some people and left, and only the wealthy ones remained. As I said, they would attack the people who were there, and rescued her, and bring her back to camp with them.

    That’s what I was thinking. But, if anyone has any ideas, I’m also up for hearing them. :)

    Yay!!! I'm glad I was accepted. I think that is a good way to start. Definetly gives the gang a reason to be there. Should I do the first post then when we start since we have to start with the gang learning about the auction?

    If you want to do that, sure. Or I could make the first post with the Princess being held in the house the auction is at.

    Oh, and in terms of location, I was thinking the auction would start down in Louisiana, somewhere off the Mississippi River up the state a bit more.

    I did have an idea that, while the rescue of Alexandria is successful, some lawmen get the word out the the other authorities and it suddenly goes south for the gang and they’re forced to flee the area and head West.

    Regardless of who does the first post, I’ll need to make an IC thread. I’ll try to do that soon.

    I don't mind either way who starts it. Don't want to seem like I want to take over or anything so whatever you want to do :)

    I thinks that a good idea for moving adds more drama and plot :)
