I thought, maybe it would be a good idea if every new member tells us a bit about themselves and why they want to play a certain character? ^^; would be nice


So, I'll start. I'm Nicky, I'm 21 years old and a medicine student from Germany. I've been in love with Sherlock Holmes since many years, even before the new takes (Guy Richie, Sherlock, Elementary...) came out. I prefer the original takes like the version with Jeremy Brett or Arthur Wontner, though I also enjoy Basil Rathbone and RDJ. My favourite actors for Holmes and Watson shall forever be Jeremy Brett and David Burke, though ^^ for they are just perfect.

I chose to play Watson and an Irregular, because I needed to start somewhere. I usually am better at playing Holmes, but I thought that he is the most attractive character to play, so many might be sad if he's already taken. So I picked Watson instead. Paul, my little Irregular just popped into my mind :)

I hope all of you will enjoy this roleplay and please, if you have any suggestions or problems feel free to tell me. Or if you want any places to be added. Like we will need a Colonel Moran and he needs to stay somewhere as well, right? So just tell me and I'll set it up.


Enjoy yourselves,
Nicky ^^

Hi, I'm Erik. I'm an English student in the USA. I'm a fan of Sherlock Holmes as well, primarily the original stories, the Granada TV series (with Brett and Burke/Hardwicke), and Sherlock. He's been a big influence on my own writing, as I like the way AC Doyle sets up mysteries. They're almost like a proto-hardboiled style, getting to the seamy bits underneath the veneer of Victorian England.

I normally do original RP's, or at least original characters, but I think this could be fun and interesting.

So I'll introduce myself as well :)

I'm Loona (cause Luna as taken) and I'm 16 years old. I fell in love with SH when I watched the RDJ production, but since then I have read almost all of the books by ACD and watched many episodes on YouTube xD
I've not been roleplaying since a long time, so I hope I'll do alright. I picked Lily because I find the Irregulars very interesting and we can pretty much make up everything ourselves while still being able to play in the setting of SH. That's why I joined :D

Hi, I'm Aaron and I study psychology.
I find Sherlock Holmes very inspiring because it tells us so much about the everyday life during the victorian times. I also love the writing style a lot, very neutral and without the usual cheesy stuff.
I picked Lestrade because I think in most adaptions he is a rather underrated character, so I will try to put some depth into the little Inspector ;)
