Plot: You are but one member of one of four prominent families within the cities. This is a Slice Of Life genre roleplay and is to be treated as if you're living it as you speak. Your every action, who you decide to and not to speak to affects the overall plot, and can often lead to very caustic situations. Each family has a strong suit and an area the founding fathers wouldn't go near. There are feuds for different reasons between families but only those who have been in a position of power and authority for over fourty years will be privy to that information. The social standards and customs of each family will also be outlined and you are free to pick as you wish. The overall goal is to do your best to out skill the other families.
- The Family Must Have At Least One Set Of Parents. Brothers & Sisters Are Up To The Pick Of The Family Itself.
- There is a hierarchy that has to be followed and the company's that each family controls must be maintained.
- An expense report has to be turned in by a financial rep, if your family needs help with that, contact me and I'll appoint someone to watch over you, but it has to be turned in before the end of the week.
- You must appoint an heir if the current leader won't be active for at least a week at a time.
- Your characters must have a strong personality trait and a weak trait, and if you decide, they can have an ailment that threatens them or an addiction.
- Any research that is to be done must be done OOC if it doesn't pertain to the actual plot as in your character doesn't already know it. i.e. He is enrolled in law school and needs to find out financial advice to aid in Family A's struggle with a litigation process. or something to that effect.
- No killing or trying to kill ((Unless the plot permits, which could very well happen, or has already happened. *Evil Laugh*)) other players.
You may ask why all the rules are labeled 1. Well that's because all of the rules are on the same caliber!!! That and I have no idea how to change it. *Shrug.* Oh well. Sue me. ((Depending on what family you pick, you may just be able to. Hehehehe.))
