THIS WEEK IN UNNATURAL:


🎵Let the bodies hit the floor

Let the bodies hit the floor

Let the bodies hit the floor

Let the bodies hit the... FLOOR!🎵


Two bodies have been found murdered with in a week of each other. Coincidence or do we have a serial killer on the hunt? What is Chief Blacach's plan to maintain the safety of Ashmore citizens? Inside sources say he may be too busy with his new role as City Commissioner to assign the resources needed to solve these cases. Let's hope that isn't the case.


In other news, it's sweater weather! The fall colors are bursting through Ashmore! It is a great time to get out and snap those photos, drink up pumpkin spice lattes, pick the perfect pumpkins.

ROLEPLAY INSIGHTS OF THE WEEK: Keep in mind...


While we understand that certain scenarios, characters, and personality types are completely plausible and happen in real life (the world is full of assholes, as you know) and that RP is FICTIONAL, just like any book or movie (and those are full of realistic assholes too), we ask our players to refrain from roleplaying sensitive real-life issues that might offend other PLAYERS OOC’ly.


For example - being an asshole that blows up the hospital - okay. Playing a character that claims to be an ISIS operative and blows up the hospital--not okay. Playing a character that hurls racist insults at vampires and werewolves (think True Blood “fanger”, “fang-banger”)--okay. Playing a character that is bigoted and hateful towards the LGBTQ+ community or other human races--not okay.


If you are broaching a topic that may be a bit sensitive or more explicit, it may be wise to give a heads up to those involved with the scene. It will allow those who do not wish to participate the chance to exit the scene.


Happy Fall Unnatural!
