Welcome to Anson! | OOC - OPEN! | City RP [Character-based]

Postby Alozia » Tue Jul 14, 2020 2:15 pm

Welcome to Anson, Texas
>>>OOC Thread<<< | IC Thread | Townhall Thread | Map
Image


IC DATE: July 4, 2020
The Independence Day is here! As the town gets ready for the festivities, politicians rally their troops to make a good impression on the voters. Parties will take place across the city as will various forms of political agitation. Where will your characters spend their day? At official festivities organized by the Mayor and City Council or at a friends home? Or maybe on the streets, trying to win over the hearts and minds of the townsfolk?

Background Information

"Welcome to Anson!" (or simply Anson) is a character-based RP, located in the fictional city of Anson, Texas. The newly founded city (see the detailed map below) has attracted individuals of all walks of life over the course of it's short history, giving every player the ability to craft their character largely to their liking. A mix of social and political RP will have player characters engage in everyday activities, special events and - if they choose to - municipal politics.

Apply as a teacher, store-owner, local politician or teenager. Your character is limited only by your imagination and the inescapable reality of being a mortal human being.


Anson

Named after one of the Presidents of Texas, Anson is a recently-founded city located on the coast of Texas, overseeing the majestic Baffin Bay. Built on reclaimed wetlands and swamps, the newest addition to Kenedy County quickly became an attractive place to live. Low housing costs, newly built facilities such as the James K. Polk High School and potential for personal growth attracted a considerable number of individuals of all classes, backgrounds and ages bringing much needed wealth and skills with them. Soon, what was formerly the site of a small fishing village became a respectable city with over 20,000 residents. Located less than 90 miles from the US-Mexico border, the city of Anson finds itself in an interesting geographic position.

Currently Anson is a culturally diverse city, comprising individuals of all walks of life. It is up to them to forge their destiny in a new town.

(The rl Anson, Texas is retconned; we do not recognize it :evil:)


Rules

1) OP's word is law. You can argue your case in a respectable manner, but in the end the OP's word is final.
2) No real people as characters. This is a character driven RP and while role-playing as a celebrity sounds tempting, it is very highly discouraged for a wide range of reasons. Real life figures which would interact with the town will more than likely be replaced with stand-in characters under the authority of the RP's administration.
3) Keep characters realistic. The nature of the RP allows for a considerable amount of creative liberty, but characters, their wealth, power, influence, behavior etc. should all be kept within reason. Creating an incredibly powerful Mary Sue-esque character, while intriguing, provides for a very poor role-playing experience. Make sure your characters have weaknesses and problems they wish to overcome on their way to a better future. Don't go too crazy with your characters. A kind-hearted elderly lady with a passion for knitting will not suddenly become a serial killer or bank robber.
4) Keep it PG-13. Large cities provide for numerous events. Some of them good and joyful, others... not so much. While some of our characters will undoubtedly end up being involved in less than desirable situations, this doesn't mean that explicit descriptions of more mature situations are needed.

From the official NS One Stop Rules Shop
Offensive Material: As mentioned previously, we use the US movie rating "PG-13" standard. Mild swearing may be tolerated, mild sexuality may be hinted,
but explicit or excessive versions of either or both will result in moderation intervention.


5) No cheat-edits, godmodding or metagaming. Characters oftentimes have a far more limited knowledge of the events than the players controlling them, which has a major impact on their actions. Knowledge acquired through means other than character action based in their knowledge will not be allowed to be put to use. Controlling the actions of characters other than your own is strictly forbidden. Your characters have to conform to the reality of their situation - for example, a character with injured legs will not be able to run a marathon.
6) OOC and IC posts should be kept seperate. Please, refrain from making OOC comments in the IC thread and vice-versa. All OOC issues, discussions and questions should be posted/brought up in the appropriate thread.
7) Feel free to ask questions. If you are not sure if you're actions are in accordance with the rules, feel free to contact the admin either via the OOC thread or TGs.
8) Contact the admin before engaging in action affecting other people's characters. Action affecting other players characters without explicit consent from the admin and the other player in question is strictly prohibited.
9) Put effort into your posts. Not everyone is a Pulitzer Prize winner in the making, but your posts should exhibit a degree of effort. No one sentence posts, unless justified by the setting (eg. a conversation). Make sure your posts are at least a paragraph long (5-8 sentences minimum).

Tips for applying:

When writing your character's bio a couple of things can be added to give them more flavor:
1) Childhood - where they born rich or poor? In the US or are they migrants? How did this impact them in the future?
2) Education - Did they stop at high school or are they college educated? Or maybe they dropped out of school to do something else? Did they get to choose what they studied or were they forced into a major by their family?
3) Employment - How did they get their job? Was it planned or just a coincidence? Maybe they're unemployed and looking for a job opportunity in Anson?
4) Family relations - Your character has a family, great! Did they get along well?

The police department likely has more than 30 officers.

Either way, the app could use more work, the bio should be considerably expanded and the character needs weaknesses.

People interpret the Scripture differently. Therefore, it makes sense for a group to uphold the principle, that God accepts everyone regardless of their preferrence - as long as they acceptes His grace and salvation.

Birth date: February 3rd, 1964
Gender Identity: Male
Role: Captain of the Cajun Red, Fisherman
Appearance:
Image

Height and Weight: 6'2, 190 lbs
Biography:
William "Bill" Strowger was born on February 3rd, 1964, in Sudan, Texas. He was brought up in a heavily Conservative family, being enstilled with the ideals of Country and Faith. He was quite a dull boy, with him not doing well at school and constantly getting into fist fights with the school yard bullies. He would graduate high school with and recieve a diploma. This would also be aroung the time Bill moved to Anson, moving in with his Uncle Fred.

Bill liked living in Anson with his Uncle Fred. Fred worked down at the city's dock, ensuring that Bill got a job as a dockyard worker. In this role, Bill would mainly help load and unload cargo and mail, with him sometimes being given permission to drive the trucks carrying the cargo. It was also during this time that Bill's Uncle, introduced him to his future Father-in-law and his future wife, with him being a fishing boat captain. Bill and his future wife soon began dating, with him later proposing to her in 1986. He would continue to work at the dockyard until 1989, when his Uncle Fred tragically died when the cargo truck he was driving plummeted off the docks and into the ocean. 1992 rolled around and Bill took over the fishing business from his father-in-law. Nothing really major happened in these eight years, with the normal stuff happening, like Bill and Janice buying their first house, Janice began working in the local Store. Bill's wife Janice would fall pregnant during the June of 1999, however, Bill was not around much due to his fishing boat lifestyle. He was 15 minutes late to the birth of his son Fred.

When Fred turned five, Bill took him out on his boat fishing. This would be a catastrophe as young Fred fell overboard, nearly drowning. Thankfully, Bill had not opened his beer yet, so immediately dived in after Fred, saving his life. He would vow from that day to never take children out on his fishing boat again. He also became a regular at the local Methodist Church with him attending Service every Sunday, a tradition that he still holds to this day.

2020 will be a good year for Bill. After buying a new Fishing boat in late 2019, he believes that business will soon be booming and that he'll be able to buy a new Ford Transit Van.

Place of Birth: Sudan, Texas

OPTIONAL INFORMATION

Relatives/Personal Relations: Married and has a son, who recently graduated from the Police Academy.
Personality: Bill is a traditionalist, mixed in with him being a lone wolf. He likes to be left alone and to his own devices, rather than seek the company of his friends and family.
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Likes: Fish, Guns, God, Food, Family, America, Rock Music (specifically Christian Rock)
Dislikes: The Devil, Pop Music, Alligators, Teenagers, Politicians
Fears, Wishes, and Goals: Gays, alligators and dying in a hospital.
Distinguishing Marks: Tattoo on his left kneecap of Jaws from the original movie poster
Zodiac Info: Aquarius, doesn't believe in Zodiac Signs though!

Biography: Margaret was born on August 30, 1976 in Houston, Texas to a struggling middle-class family. Her mother, Elizabeth Woolridge (nee Rockwell) was an accountant and aspiring painter, a "free spirit" limited by the harsh reality of living in the real world. Her father Norman "Norm" Woolridge, an insurance agent, a hard-working, down-to-earth, pragmatic man provided for a decent breadwinner, especially to a family of five (Margaret was the youngest of three children), but failed at being a satisfying spouse for a free-spirited, wannabe artist. Margaret's mother, once joyful young woman, became melancholic, pushing away her children who enjoyed a decent amount of freedom in their everyday lives. While her older siblings were busy enjoying themselves and having fun, Margaret quickly grew to become more like her father, paying attention in class and starting work soon after graduating high school.

Choosing to seek higher education, Margaret focused on becoming a school teacher, goal considered "foolish" by her now aging and increasingly bitter father. As her father's bitterness continued the two grew apart with Margaret becoming more sensitive and emotionally available. It was during her college days when she was first introduced to Richard Winston, the man who would become her husband.

The relationship started out well, the opposites did, in fact, attract. The wild and outgoing Richard helped Margaret get out of her comfort zone and have fun while she made sure to curb the worst of his excesses ultimately keeping him away from trouble. The pair would marry shortly after Margaret graduated university and got her first job as a school teacher. The two would enjoy a good honeymoon period, but all gradually changed after the birth of their son, Charlie, named after Margaret's grandfather.

Having to balance her duties as a teacher and mother Margaret dedicated the overwhelming majority of her time to taking care of children at school as well as at home. Richard, feeling estranged from his wife started to seek love somewhere else, eventually starting a love affair with one of his co-workers. The affair would continue for a couple of years until the Winstons' divorce in 2017 when it became a regular relationship.

Looking to get away from the noise and the rush of a major city as well as the memory of her now ex-husband, Margaret sold her house and moved to Anson to start over. A resident of two years, Margaret has familiarized herself with the ever growing community and plans to run for mayor.
