What is freedom? Is it the ability to do whatever you please? Or is the knowledge that you are an individual in a sea of millions, and you don't need to act like the rest of them? Our nation was built around the idea of personal freedoms, they call themselves "The Land of the Free", but what does it really mean? That's what we're gonna find out.
A group of friends (young adults and teens) who have never fit in are trying to discover what it really means to be free. They come from all walks of life and ideals, but the one thing they all have in common is that they are independent and adventurous. They plan a road trip across America; some of them want to leave home for the sake of adventure, and others want to escape, but they all just want to be free.
Setting: We will start in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and from there we can go anywhere.
Reason for leaving home/traveling:
Because this is a role play that takes place in so many settings, some characters may be hitchhikers, truckers, bikers, or even small town teens that run away from home. You may create more characters or stock characters as we go along. If you don't want to be one of the original friends, be creative. We can pick you up along the way. Anything can and will happen. This will be a graphic and racy role play, swearing is allowed, as is drug use and any kind of weird and twisted things you could find at a highway rest stop. There will be serial killers, and creeps, and old drunks and all the kinds of scum you can imagine. Living on the road is dangerous, what can I say? And with that, I shall leave everyone with a quote from Easy Rider.......
Hanson: What you represent to them is freedom.
Billy: What the he.ll is wrong with freedom? That's what it's all about.
Hanson: Oh, yeah, that's right. That's what's it's all about, all right. But talkin' about it and bein' it, that's two different things. Of course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free, 'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em.
((Um this sounds cool but how like graphic will the violence and such be?))
((I don't know yet, as graphic as we make it, I mean, it won't be a blood bath, but it won't be all rainbows and kitten either.))
((I mean I'm OK with PG13 type violence, but much above that I don't do.))
((I don't think the violence will be that intense, it's more of the free use of language and drugs that I was thinking would make it graphic.))
((OK, I'll joijn then. (I don't use language with my charries though.) Um It may take me a while to a put a charrie up I'm multitasking right now...Is that OK?))
((Of course, take your time. I'd like to have four characters before we start.))
(Mind if I join? I can't post until around 6:30 TI time, though.)
Name: Saoirse "Fiain" Mac Cuill
Appearance: Saoirse is average height, but not to big. She is thin, waifish and looks like a good wind could knock her over. Saoirse has pale skin and pale wheaten blonde hair that falls to her waist. Her hair is bronzy, with red and brown undertones and is very wavy. She has big blue eyes and soft, ethereal features that make her look like some sort of leprechaun. Saoirse is eccentric looking, she wears bizarre clothing and has a very interesting tattoo of the second battle of Magh Tuireadh that spreads across her back and shoulders. She's been working on it since she was fifteen and has many aspects of celtic mythology from the fae and the sidhe to the Tuatha De Danann.
Personality: Saoirse is truly wild. She does whatever she pleases no matter what the consequence is, and has no impulse control. Saoirse isn't particularly aggressive, but she is relentless. She is very independent and proud and extremely stubborn. Saoirse is fearless and spontaneous, and often finds herself in tricky situations due to her strong and outgoing personality. She hates when people underestimate her and will pick a fight with anyone, regardless of how badly they will kick her as.s. Saoirse is tough as nails, but not the sharpest tool in the shed. Her intelligence is more on the intuition and strategy side, she isn't much of an academic unless she's reading fairy tales, which can keep her occupied for hours.
Bio: Saoirse is an Irish American. Her father is an electrician who lives in Santa Fe, and her mother was a drifter. Saoirse was raised by her extended family in Lenanavea, Ireland county Mayo after her mother bailed. Her family was very old fashioned and tried everything with Saoirse, including but not limited to sending her off to boarding school and exorcising her demons. They finally sent her to America to live with her father when she was thirteen. She gets along fine with her father, a lot better then her family in Ireland, but she is bored in Santa Fe.
Reason: Can never have to much adventure, can we?
Other: Her name is pronounced Seer-sha, it is the Irish word for liberty. Her nickname Fiain is pronounced Fion and it means wild. Saoirse can speak English and Irish and she is trying to learn spanish because she wants to travel around Central and South America.
((Of course you may join.))
((I'll post my skellie later, maybe even tomorrow. OK?))
Name: Volya Alexeevich Gavronskii (Volya means 'Will' or 'Freedom' in Russian.)
Appearance: He has normal build, his shoulders aren't broad, but aren't small either. He is short for his age, but is muscular, but he's muscular and strong looking. His skin is pale, milky almost but not quite. He has hard to see freckles on his cheeks and the bridge of his nose. He has dirty blonde hair that's messy and curly, it's in a short cut, and some strands hang on his forehead and over his ears, his hair is a mess and stick out, it's never brushed or neat because well he doesn't care. He has some rough stubble on his jaw, the beginnings of a beard. He wears an old white v-neck t-shirt with the sleeve cut off a let of jeans with holes in the knee and tatter cuffs, a set of tan workings boots and a black web belt. On his right shoulder is a bunch of flames, it goes from his shoulder blade a little bit down onto his chest and back and then up onto his neck, the tatto is red, orange, yellow, and some hints of blue. On the small of his back is an hour glass that's half done with Время останавливается ни один человек(Time stops for no one) written in a circle around it. And wrapped around his right wrist is a thorn branch.
Personality: Volya is hot tempered, and is very out spoken. He is stubborn and hates to be proven wrong of too back down. He isn't an angry person though, he's just quick tempered, short fused, and very volatile. When he isn't angry he's a laid back guy with an 'anything-goes' attitude and a rather lazy aspect on life, he doesn’t do anything unless he wants to or he has too to keep from being killed or something. He isn't the brightest bulb in the bunch, but he's adventurous, and doesn't scare easily. He doesn't mind getting dirty, in fact he rather dislikes baths and shower, he has a childish dislike of cleaning up. He's also rather rebellious, the type of person who'd disobey a rule just because he can or just because the rule is there.
Bio: (optional): He grew up in a large Russian family. His parents were a bit young and not very controlled or mature. Both his parents drank and in the house there was a culture of drinking, vodka mostly. Volya got into trouble a lot with his siblings or his 'friends'. Mostly for hanging out past curfew, vandalazation, under aged drinking and petty theft. Because of the turmoil and lack of structure in his house Volya never really saw any reason or wasn't pushed to change his lazy. He dropped out of high school because he saw no reason to keep going and didn't particularly like school. He lives in a trailer park in Santa Fe.
Reason for leaving home/traveling: He decided to leave because he'd gotten in trouble with the cops again for hitting a cop while drunk and now doesn't want to go to jail.
Other: He reads, writes, adn speaks Russian adn English and has a Russian accent.
Name: Louise "Lua" Scott
Appearance: Constantly changing. Lua is a master of disguise and multiple identities. When she's in a secure location she tends to hang out in a tee shirt and jeans, but in public she's looked like anything from a janitor to a biker chick.
Personality: Cautious and intelligent. Lua might be considered paranoid by those who don't know her very well, but she's learned a lot of people are willing to sell her out and acts accordingly. She thinks and reacts fast but not rashly, while trying not to be noticed. She's always angry when she sees innocent people hurt and in trouble, and tries to help them out to the best of her ability, especially if it involves giving the feds the finger.
Bio: (optional) Lua grew up in Kentucky.
Reason for leaving home/traveling: Lua's dad had a patch of Cannabis behind his house. When the Feds kicked in the door of the Scott residence at 4:00 AM, he shot three of them before being killed. The two remaining agents murdered Lua's mother, but Lua had had time to dress and arm. She killed the agents and has been on the lam ever since, a little over a year.
Other: Lua always carries a .45, and in her backpack is a paratrooper Mini 14 and a dozen 20 rd mags.
(((Is it ok if I also do a boy character?)))
((Go ahead, if you want you can introduce another character later on as a hitch hiker the kids pick up.))
((Is Voyla accepted?))
((Da, konechno! Which I am told means absolutely according to my impish Russian buddy Alec.))
((Thanks.! YAY!! :-D
I know 'Da' (or да in cyrillic) means yes and I looked up 'konechno' (конечно in cyrillic) and it mean 'of course'. SOoyour Russian buddy did not lead you astray! :-D :-D
I may make anotehr charrie sometime, not sure though.))
(((Okay, maybe I'll bring him in tomorrow then. Thanks!)))
(I might bring in another character or two if this one starts to bother me. None of the names are in English, either.)
Name: Xiyrainia (pronounce zier-rain-niea) Jinx
Appearance: Xiyra (Pronouced zier-ra) has long, black as night hair that falls in loose waves to her hips with dark blue, almost black eyes. Her complexion is slightly pale and she has an athletic, slender build with delicately sculpted facial features.

She has a tattoo of a raven flying in front of a full moon on her right forearm and a dragon tattoo wrapped around her left arm all the way up to her shoulder, as well as snakebites.
Personality: Xiyra is unpredictable to say the least. One moment she may be your best friend, the next you know she could be at your throat. It's rare that she loses her tempeer, though. Oftentimes she will find a dark corner to sit in and keep to herself, preferring to observe rather than interact.
Reason for leaving home/traveling: It has to do with her past, but she's trying to escape who she was before in a way
Other: Xiyra has a twin brother, whom she hopes to meet up with on this trip
