Introduction

Image


ImageIn Crescent City, California exists a (mostly) happy and carefree population. On the northern side of the city, most families are thoroughly middle class and live without fear of crime or disturbance. The teen population attend Del Norte High School, where they receive a top notch education, (among the higher scoring in the region) and have no shortage of extracurricular activities to occupy their time. On sundays, the majority of the city packs together inside one of several churches for various denominations and enjoy a peaceful weekend of fellowship with their neighbors. However, the north side of the city is not what were focusing on in this story. Our story takes place on the southside of Crescent City.

On the southern edge of the city life is much bleaker. The southside of Crescent City is basically a ghetto with a smattering of long abandoned warehouses and meth cook infested trailers. The youth of south Crescent City tend to drop out of school at a young age. Those who can’t get a good job due to dropping out of school either become drug dealers, addicts, dead, or prisoners. These people are the ones who have to break the law in order to survive and provide for themselves and their families.

ImageLiving the fast life to make quick cash in large stacks. Or for those not built for the life of crime they work doing menial labor to support their family. Working long hours and putting in a lot of hard work for little pay. The poverty wracked families in the area (basically all of them that aren't involved in crime somehow) struggle with various addictions, depression and domestic violence. Living here, you learn to enjoy the little things; like parties, friendships, family, and stealing water heaters so you can have a warm shower. You never know whats gonna happen when you leave the comfort of your home and enter the streets of Crescent City, which are filled with drunks, homeless people, and drunk homeless people that’ll try and snag your wallet when you aren’t looking. The thinly spread Police Department has just enough men to keep the peace in the northern part of the city and because of this, they have a very small presence in the trailer parks and ghetto, showing up only when called (which is rare as the people from the southside prefer to handle things themselves.)

So here’s to the misfits, the sex addicts, the drug dealers and the party goers. We’re young, and we’re shameless.

Rules

1. There is no character limit so there is no need to reserve characters. Just don't make more characters than you can handle.
2. Be polite to the other players, I love drama in the ic but keep it out of the ooc
3. No one-liners. I'd like to see at least two descriptive paragraphs.
4. Commitment is the key to a successful role-play so please do be committed if you join. If you don't post for a few days I will pm you, if I don't hear from you I'll kill off your character in some dramatic way and open the spot back up.

Re: Crescent City

I'll have my character in by hopefully tonight but if not sometime tomorrow

Re: Crescent City

I really like the idea of this rp. I still need to think of a fc but I think I'll be making a male character.

Re: Crescent City

Coolio. I'll be making a character with Lily Loveless as an fc (in honor of the skins gif in the intro)
