One Big FAMILY!

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby lom.conor on Sun Jul 01, 2012 7:40 pm

There’s a small town in the middle of America called Round Town, USA, with white picket fences, church-going townspeople, a beautiful Main Street, and rambling rose. Round Town certainly is the epitomé of the All-American experience. There’s at least four baseball fields, a brand new public high school, Round High, a prestigious Catholic college, St. Thomas More Liberal Arts Academy and Seminary, a classic town hall, and a cute little farmer’s market.

But Round Town is hiding a secret. A little ways off from town is a family. A large family. The Lorraines came to town about ten years ago, and instantly fell in love with everything. The Lorraines enjoy Friday night baseball games, send their kids off to Round High, attend various churches throughout the town, participate in local government, and enjoy Saturday mornings at the farmer’s market. They appear to be quite a happy family. But there’s one thing that hasn’t escaped the townspeople: there seems to be more adult-Lorraines than the original count. Though Lorraines have yet to officially open up about their family life, it is well-known the Lorraines are polygamists.

Image


Can the Lorraines prove that it's possible to unite such a large family, despite all their human faults and dynamic relationships? Can they do it before the town tears their family apart? Will their family tear itself apart? Or will the Lorraines be able to successfully convince Round Town that they can be perfectly normal members of the community?



We Still Have One Heart is a literate+ RP devoted to the inner workings of a multi-faceted family in classic America. Characters are based on many interchangeable faceclaims, and role-players are welcome to come and create living, breathing avatars. Reservations last two days and are renewable. This RP will be slow-paced, so it can be juggled with any number of RPs. The GM, although new, is ready to help, entertain and immerse all players, as he draws from years of many different kinds of RP as well as outside life experiences.

There aren't any polygamy RPs on roleplaygateway, and you'd be hard pressed to find them elsewhere. Occcaisionally, you might see a diluted form of polygamy as a small feature in some RPs, but still that's cutting it. I wanted to create an RP that was refreshing, dynamic and yet somehow both familiar and unfamiliar to players. Players are expected to create characters they can be proud of. The pace of the RP will be slow but not dead, so that both enthusiastic players and busy players can fully participate in the game.

I am new to gamemastery, but I am creative, determined and inclusive. I am always open to ideas and advice, and I want the players to be just as responsible for the content of the RP as I am.

Note: This RP is inspired, but not based on, the Sister Wives television series on TLC, which features the Brown family of 1 husband and 4 wives. This family is FLDS, but the religiosity in We Still Have One Heart is fluid and dynamic, and any character of any creed (or lack thereof) is invited.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM lom.conor (that's me! :D). If you feel I'm a DB, then you can still PM but I ask that you don't :D!

Thank you for your time!

I think this would be a lot of fun, and would definitely be interested but have a few questions. How many people will there be playing? who will be playing the husband? Please let me know :)

Hello maddenbaby


Right now we have about four or five players. But really, we would take as many literate players who are interested in playing. Overall there's a total of 19 faceclaims, some of which are currently already taken. But I can and will add/change more upon request.


I will be playing the husband, "the head of the family", however there are two other husbands as well. a total of 3 wives and 3 husbands. It's more of a equal, group marriage.

You have the same name as I do ^_^
Never before have so many come together from all quarters of the galaxy. But never before have we faced an enemy such as this. The Reapers will show us no mercy. We must give them no quarter. They will terrorize our populations. We must stand fast in the face of that terror. They will advance until our last city falls, but we will not fall. We will prevail. Each of us will be defined by our actions in the coming battle. Stand fast. Stand strong. Stand together. Hackett out.

Ah! That's because you need at least like 25 posts in the forum to be able to send PMs. I didn't notice how new you were.

Don't worry. If you stay involved with our RP and the OOC, you can earn your 25 in no time :D

And I'll reserve him for you.

there are three husbands and three wives.

The first husband is my character, Thomas, whose face claim is Harrison Ford, and he is the "head of the family".

the other two husbands are married to him, but Thomas is just first among equals. it's a group marriage more than anything. check it out via the link on the first post. if you don't like an FC, or want a different one, please let me know I'd be more than happy to help you out.

Alright, I think I'd like the play the second husband (FC is Justin Bieber) if possible. I will be honest I am great at role playing, but usually don't have ridiculously complicated characters. Lom, would you mind PMing with me a bit to throw ideas back and forth, or maybe I could fill the char sheet as much as possible then you could help me flesh it out a bit? You seem to have a good idea of direction you want this to go so that may help.
