Welcome to Will to Live, a RP set in the fictional town of Monroeville, Maine. Orginally a small fishing village turned college town turned tourist trap, long-time locals are now outnumbered by newcomers in their ever-expanding hometown. Plots are primarily member-driven, with a wide range of interesting and diverse characters to interact with. Feel free to jump right in; fresh perspectives and ideas are always welcome.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE

Like last year we've decided to do an advent calendar for the 12 days of Christmas. For these days, you'll have a prompt and you can do whatever you want with it (fic, art, poetry, etc anything else). Only this year, we're looking for some help. Let us know some of the prompts YOU want to see for this season.

PM JDash with three (or less, or more, whatever you're feeling) prompts and we'll try to ch0ose one from everyone. Prompts will be revealed on December 12, and Advent Calendar will start on the 13th!

Hey everyone! The holiday season is here, and with it we'll soon be closing out another year here on Will to Live. It's a time for reflection and evaluation, figuring out what works and what doesn't, what to carry over into the new year and what to change. With that, we have an announcement and also a need for feedback from you guys, our lovely members!

Starting in January, we have decided to get rid of the MHS and MPA usergroups. Though Will to Live originally started out exclusively as a high school rp, these two groups have seen less and less use over the years. At this point, we feel it is misleading, especially to new members, to join with high school characters only to find out plots within that age group are extremely limited due to low numbers. Current and future high school characters will still be playable, however we will start including them in the Townie usergroup, as we encourage members to consider these characters' place and plots within the scope of the town instead of relying heavily on school plots that simply don't exist at this point.

But speaking of the Townie usergroup, this is where we could use your help! Townies have become our largest usergroup, and with the absorbtion of the high school groups we're wondering if it might be good to split into two smaller groups. One possible way would be to split the townies between new arrivals and people that have lived in town for more than five consecutive years: an easy way of telling at a glance if someone's been in town long enough for your characters to know them by now.

However, there could be other options we're just not seeing, and we would really appreciate your input. Do you think we should leave the Townie usergroup as it is? If you'd rather break it down into smaller groups, how would you like to see them separated?

We will leave this thread open throughout the month of December so that everyone has a chance to participate. Depending on the feedback recieved, staff will make a decision that will be implemented in January during our next activity check.

Thank you in advance and we hope all of you are having a safe and happy holiday season!

CALENDAR OF EVENTS
  • 1st - The town hosts its annual tree lighting ceremony in the square, presided over by our gentle leader, Mayor Joe Dashington.
  • 1st - For the rest of the month, Bernard's French Cafe and Bakery is offering new winter special crêpes - including gingerbread, cranberry cinnamon, Nutella® hot chocolate twist, and more.

NEWS AROUND TOWN

COMPLETED THREADS

Hello everyone! This December, we're excited to debut an official monthly newsletter, the Monroeville Herald. The Herald will be used to publicize IC events for the upcoming month, to broadcast rumors and town gossip generated by the previous month, and to anthologize threads completed since the last issue of the newsletter.

It'll rely on your submissions! Throughout each month, you can submit event suggestions, updates on your characters, and links to your completed threads to Mayor Joe Dashington via PM. At the beginning of each month, we'll compile them into a new issue of the newsletter! Submission guidelines are as follows:




EVENT CALENDAR:
    Open mic nights, restaurant or shop specials, college talks, open-invite house parties and any other planned public events. Include the date of the event and a brief description.

    Example:
    • 12/1 - The town hosts its annual tree lighting ceremony in the Square. Apple cider and hot cocoa are passed out during this traditional Monroeville event.
TOWN GOSSIP:
    Last month's hookups, breakups, breakdowns, and anything else that warrants whispered discussion around town. Include the character(s) or NPCs involved, a brief description of the event, and a link to any relevant threads.

    Example:
COMPLETED THREADS:
    Any threads completed since the last newsletter, regardless of when they started or what time they are set. Include the season the thread is set, the thread title, and a brief description of the thread.

    Example:
    • Fall - I Wanna Hold Your Hand - Joe and Martha Dashington share a tender moment at the Swan Lake Fundraiser Ballet.
Submissions will be collected via PM throughout the month and must be in before the last day of each month in order to be included in the next issue of the newsletter. We're excited about this as a way to inspire plots, celebrate completed threads, and keep everyone up to date on what's happening in the town!

As always, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to let us know.
