Hey sounds pretty cool! I'll probably submit a few characters later tonight :D

Edit: I figured I would submit a Shermen descendant and probably one or two other characters. (But probably just one other lol)

I love a good mystery. I'll make around three or four characters and send them in tonight, if that's alright with you. :)

Great! Two characters is perfectly alright... and Shermens are even better, since I wad seized by an unnatural paranoia that no one would be interested in them! I'll try and have profiles for my other two characters, Miriam and Bill up this afternoon at the latest.
Thanks,
Aggie :)

Two characters done, two more to go. I'll probably finish the rest by tomorrow.

Welcome to Wichita Falls! I am hopelessly behind on creating Miriam and Bill's profiles (classes and all that), but I'll hasten to them right now. Oh, and your character, Wilhelmina, she's meant to be Miriam's niece through her mother, right? Just so I know so I don't bungle it all up in-game.

Loved both your characters and am looking forward to interacting with them.

Thanks a bunch,
-Aggie

Read both profiles, loved 'em, and can't wait to see the next two! There's no rush at this stage in the game, as I still intend to finish my own character profiles, not to mention adding a few refined touches here and there (the Shermen family tree, especially, and details on the actual murders from back in the 20s).

In the meantime, though, welcome to Wichita Falls! :)

Thanks,
-Aggie

Turned in one character so far, I'm thinking his mother could have been one of Miriams siblings. Or a cousin or something, I didn't really specify anything other than her name.

EDIT: WOrking on a few other characters right now :D

EDIT 2: All of my characters are finished! Please tell me if anything should be changed :D

All three characters were amazingly awesome, first of all. I absolutely loved Charlotte (she's so badass), and I can't wait to see her in action. As for Zach, he can totally be Miriam's nephew. She's the oldest of the Shermen siblings, so it's entirely possible that Audrienne could have been one of the younger ones.

And OMG, awesome, we have a doctor who looks like Gary Oldman! :D I am indescribably delighted, because I kept telling myself 'Oh, we need a doctor for when folks start getting killed', and then I was like, 'oh, what will happen if no one wants to play a doctor?' But you have just assuaged my worries.

I desperately have to go on over and submit my profile for Sheriff Fleetwood; it's been hovering in stasis since last night, and we can't really get anything done without our friendly neighborhood policeman.

Thanks again, and welcome to Wichita Falls!:)

Hello fellow suspects!

I am more than overjoyed to report that we now have enough characters in our stable (10 as of now) to start the game properly.

The actual day when we 'start' the game will be this Friday. To prevent any confusion, there will be NO murders during Week 1 of gameplay. This should give us just enough time to establish our characters and their relationships, and will also allow whichever poor sap gets picked as first victim to have SOME time among the rest of us.

Tomorrow, Thursday, I'm going to add a few more finishing touches to the R.P...namely some articles in the 'Wichita Falls Gazette' section, as well as adding avatars to the rest of the location pages, and possibly adding a few more minor locations.

I'm also going to make a few more tiny OOC threads to be used for various purposes once we start the game.

Thank you again for your interest, and I look forward to RPing with you all on Friday and beyond!

-Aggie :)

Sorry if I sent in the rest of my characters a little late.
Can't wait to begin! :)

No problem! Both characters were great, and they're totally in the game now. I'm planning to start the game tomorrow, Friday, so there's no need to worry about being late. I would have been much more active with the game updates today, were it not for the copious amounts of classes I have on Thursdays.

Never you fear though, I'll have a few 'Gazette' articles up, and all important locations completed by tonight.

Thanks,
-Aggie :)

Christ, please disregard the fact I keep forgetting to change locations. I'm all drugged up right now and its amazing I can type at all. Ill remember for my next post. Sorry about that.

EDIT: it seems I posted Zachs intro at the same time as Pennys so I edited my post a little bit so that Zach appears some time after Penny does. Just to clear up confusion.

It's cool, I'm still terribly new with this site, and getting used to everything. And...now I feel terrible because I didn't even notice you'd edited this post! I'm gonna hurry on over to edit the Miriam one from before, so we don't rip a hole in Wicita Fall's space time continuum. :O

I must hurry with rapid pressing of the keys!

EDIT: Okay, it's all more or less smoothed out now. I just made a few minor edits, so Miriam sees Penny in the lobby and then sees Zach on the porch, at which point they all move off toward breakfast.
Again, sorry for any confusion my bumbling might have caused.

Thanks,
-Aggie :)

I didn't want to devote an entire thread to this, so I figure I'll put it here. This is a tentative look at the Shermen family tree, exempting any possible future characters folks want to add. I tried to be as comprehensive as a could about ages, but no doubt I've made a few deficiencies. This family tree is really just so we have a better idea of how everyone's related, exactly.

THE SHERMEN FAMILY TREE

Generation 1: Zechariah Shermen (1866-1929) [married] Hannah Shermen (1873-1929)

Generation 2: Joshua Shermen (1892-1929) [brothers] Yeardley Shermen (1903-1964)

*Generation 3: Miriam Shermen (1932- ), Theodore Shermen (1934-1958), Audrienne Shermen (1959- ), Isaac Shermen (1962- ), Monica Shermen (1964-2001)

Generation 4: Wilhelmina Shermen-Watts (1994- ), Zachary Bennett (1990- ), Penny Shermen (1995- )

*Miriam and Theodore are products of Yeardley and his wife, who he left not long after the company folded. Audrienne is the daughter of Yeardley and...someone, they never knew who. Isaac and Monica are the children of Yeardley and his second wife, who he was married to very briefly before his suicide. Monica was born a few months after Yeardley killed himself.

If I left anything out, or made any errors in age/or dating please let me know, and I'll be glad to correct it!

Oh, and also a belated welcome to our newest player, ShykKedid, who will be playing the town librarian, Karma Logan! Welcome to the game.

Thanks,
-Aggie :)
