Bishop City, MA; a place filled with strangers who every day meet other strangers, by accident or design. It's a place where it's easy to disappear, but also to be found again, by strangers. For years, the city has been de facto divided into four separate sections; the wealthy West Side, the business district of North End, the realm of the average, South End, and the poverty stricken and gang ruled East Side, but the borders are bleeding, for better or for worse. There is hope in the city for a different future, but what kind of future will it be? Can 'Shop City really change?

Closer is a real life game and runs on a liquid time line that loosely follows real life. If it's July in real life, it's July in the game as well, and official board events will be held according to this. However, threads may or may not follow real time.

Closer is inspired by the movies Closer & Sin City. The plot is developed by Birthe, contents and graphics are by Birthe and Heidi, and Heidi is the creator of the skin. The tab widget was created by Kismet of RPG-D. The contents of this game are not to be reproduced in any way without consent from the creators. All characters belong to their individual creators, as does any written material posted in the game.

 Site's movie inspirations still stand?

One of the reasons why I was drawn initially in the site was because of the movie inspirations the site draws its plot from. Closer and Sin City are some of my favorite movies and finding a site that mash-up these two was a dream come true. That said, I've noticed the characters in the site lean more towards the movie Closer. I really want to make a male character whose personality and narrative draws more upon the style of Sin City but I worry he will not mesh with the rest of the cast.

That is not to say I won't be flexible. XD I can and will streamline him, make his posting style more in keeping to what is already in the board, but again, the qualities of the man, down to personal appearance and style and other aspects of him will clearly be more Sin City-ish. I was wondering if the admins (and older members) think the board has evolved too much to allow for such a character type?

P.S. I (also) think the concept of Sin City was more focused on the segregation of the four quarters rather than characterization, in which case ignore this post, please. XD

I think you should go for it. Honestly, we'll allow pretty much anything that is within the limits of reality. It's true that the game has developed more in the direction of Closer than Sin City, but I think that's probably a natural result of being a real life board, and not comic based. If you think your character can fit into the game though, we'll be happy to have him. Obviously, I don't know exactly what you're planning, but if it's something you want to do, I (and I'm sure Birthey is too) am very supportive of that, and I'll plot with you if you decide to make him.

Ah, excellent! Thank you for the encouragement! I'll get working on his application then. And if he's able to get integrated and/or manage to keep up with posting, I will likely make a second male. Maybe even the male canon I've been wanting to play since forever. XD

But I swear, these will be my last characters here. ;____;
