Welcome to our Slice of Life RP set in Sol city, very roughly based on Seattle, Northern Western US coast and Canada.
If you enjoy a slice of life RP and want a committed and long lasting RP then this is the place you have been looking for. We have a committed GM team and genuinely enjoy Slice of Life. We have plans for regular events and to keep on adding to the RP to keep things fresh and create a growing, expanding environment.
If you want to suggest a idea, location your'e more than welcome. We invite players to add to the world if they think it is fitting and adds to world that we as a whole are creating.
So, to the main event, Sol City.
Sol City is the largest city in the area loosely based on Canada and Northwestern USA with a twist. Bright, light and shining Sol city gained it's name from being a beacon of light to early travelers, and still to this day draws the young, the adventurous and the thrill seekers looking for a new start.
So explore, enjoy, and the mark you make is your choice.
Not scary don't worry
1. Observe standard RPing rules. No godmoding, no-metagaming, stay in character, and stay within the storyline. If you want to make any major changes to the story, ask us first. Be polite to the other members. You know the drill.
2. Write in third person, past tense. Try to make your writing coherent and legible. Although there's no official word requirement, avoid one-liners when possible.
2b. Move the plot when you post! This is a “slice-of-life” RP, but please try and focus on forwarding the story with every post you make. We don’t want every other post here to be your characters leisurely having tea or monotonously deciding on what clothes to wear. We have a very dynamic world here that you can use to develop your characters.
3. You are not your character. Your character is not you. Please don't be offended because someone else's character was mean to yours. Likewise, please do not carry real-life arguments into the RPG world.
4. Character images need to be in an anime-style. Also no crossovers and no Mary/Gary Sue, please.
5. Try not to let anyone get left behind. If you and another person have posted back and forth several times, take a break and let the other players catch up. Of course, there may be times when only a few characters need to be involved in a particular scene; just don't get two days ahead of someone without giving them the chance to respond.
6. Stay active! Everyone gets busy from time to time, but if you’re going to be absent for a while just let us know. There’s no set amount of time allowed for before we start working around dormant players, but if you leave and stay gone without telling us, we’ll move on as we see fit and the plot will roll on without you. If you wish to come back after being naughty, we’ll talk.
7. This game is rated PG-13+, so just about anything goes as far as language, violence, sex, etc. However, you will need to observe standard guild rules should you feel that your posting is headed in this direction. Please read the Moderator posts concerning these topics.
8. Obviously this isn’t going to cover everything, so the GM and Co-GM’s reserve the right to make decisions as situations arise.
Thank you for reading the rules! Hope you have fun RPing with us!

Swan Songs: by aladdin_sane
Located in our beautiful historic district Swan Songs has been Sol’s number one provider of records and tapes since 1976.
“My father Isaac was always adamant that a healthy city is artistically vibrant. And at least to me music is the most important of the Arts” says Rupert Kingsley 44 who inherited the business after his father at the age of 87 retired with his wife Mandy to the sunny shores of Florida in 2004.
Rupert and his staff have curated a large collection of music from all genres; they also offer great selections from both mainstream staples and more eclectic artists. While they do not carry everything ever recorded Rupert ensures us that Swan Songs is always adding new stock and the store would be more than happy to appraise your collection if you wish to sell.
Throughout the years, the shop has offered more than just albums; they have provided a spot for our more musically inclined residents to congregate and perhaps perform. Rupert prides himself on supporting local bands and the windows of the shop are normally plastered with ads for upcoming gigs or “musician wanted” posters. Swan Songs also sell albums, EPs, and singles from local bands and artists; some these great local selections include Lyclene obscurilinea from the post-punk outfit Louis-Pierre Gravel, Bottle Rocket the latest release from the darkwave band Kremlin, and the somber new album from M33 entitled L'Estaque, Melting Snow Once or twice a month the store will transform itself into a live venue for a local or touring band to perform.
“Newcomers to the city are always asking about the local scene and what bands they should check out” says Kingsley “Our helpful staff are always happy to point those folks in the right direction.”
So if you are looking to expand your musical horizons you would be doing yourself a huge disservice by not visiting Swan Songs. They are located on 412 W 18th street next to Café Clover and Lawful Good Gaming.
