The year is 1926, in a library in St. Louis, Arthur handled his books and patrons as he normally did. Join me in a murder mystery, one that could go on for a little while, but at the same time, it could be rather short, still, it will have a rather dark tone, and Noir undertones that could bring even the most even-tempered librarian to the breaking point. Hoping for 2 or 3 players that wish to post on a semi-daily basis. Even with one, I can post on a regular basis and develop a fun story. Please reply with any questions you have, and please adhere to the rules as best you can.

Hmm... sounds interesting. I have a few characters who might be fun for this... Tove and Aina, or Åke... or maybe Max or Erik. Lemme know!

Even if it's 1 on 1, I'm okay with this. Which character would you want to play with?

I don't mind playing more than one, btw. I'm not sure who would work best - could you take a peek and let me know which one(s) you think would be the best? :3 There's a link to my chars in my siggy.

Aike Kivla seems like he would work quite well. If you were to join, I also have another prospective roleplayer in the form of Tobi. So if I get you two in the game, I will go ahead and close the submissions. It's up to both of you, of course, but I think three players is enough.

I actually agree. Four is like. . .absolute limit, I've found, for a thread to actually run ok. XD More than that is just. . .a nightmare (re: Read'Em & Weep).

But that sounds fun! I've never RP'd with Tobi, so this should be fun! :3

Åke is so bookish... XD Should be fun!

Oh, for a darker tint, you could also have me toss in Kaspr or Kain. . . >.>;;;

We will discuss more characters as we get deeper into the roleplay. We'll see how it goes :lol:

Well, seems I'm in! First RP (ever), so I'm nervous, but looking forward to it!

Aww! Its okay, Tobi! No need to be nervous. :3 I've barely used Åke in English, so I might fail a bit with him myself. We'll figure out our chars together! :3

And it's up!

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=15482

Either one of you can post, and if you really want, we can set up an order of posting. It all depends on what you guys want. Honestly, I don't care who posts when, so long as we are not completely shutting anyone out. Between three guys, it should be fine I suppose.

It's weird, though, throughout the post, I kept thinking of Arthur's voice as that of John Cleese (if you don't know who he is, shame on you) and for some reason, it just kind of fits with what I had for his personality. I think I'm going to like this character.

So either one of you can post as you wish. You can either already be in the library or you could be the one who is walking in. If not the one walking in, it's no matter, I've got a plan for that one already. Then there's the third option of being outside of the library, and then finding it. If not any of those, feel free to surprise me, I have no real expectations of any kind, it's all on the table at this point.
