Calaveras MUSH


  • Pitcrew

    Tucked against rising hills and the San Juan Mountains, Calaveras seems a sleepy Colorado town; at least on a postcard image. Here people live their lives. From first responders on hand to rescue stranded tourists on the slopes of Antler Pass to the men and women that bust bulls and broncos at the rodeos over at Jackfield Stadium; from the ranchers out at Granja Basin to the few hipsters on Smelter Street. Calaveras is a typical small city in the Great American West that is Southern Colorado.

    Calaveras is a MUSH focused on adult drama genres. Take any adult drama series and this is a place to play out similar drama. Looking for the troubles of operating a university and facing its challenges from sports team drama to any 'isms the school may face (The Quad), we have it. Looking for living the down and out life (Shameless) and trying to get by from day to day, we have it. Power play and drama among the wealthy (Dynasty, Dallas), executives and agents in the corporate life (Mad Men), crime and medical drama (take your pick of the many), hardships of life and middle age dealing with the past (This is Us).

    We look forward to meeting, Jack and Sally.

    Just wanted to give a bump to this and let everyone know that the rest of October is jammed with events (at least 1 a week until Halloween). November is likely to be very similar. There's also a semi overarching plot that's begun regarding a tech company that is starting to make its mark on the small town.

    That being said, we've got an active 'black hat' group making trouble on grid! There are a handful of active cops & medical people as well. And lots of shop owners/townies to make life fun! We're a good group of solid RPers who are laid back OOCly. So if you're looking to find a place with a chill OOC community where you can have lots of fun Rping, stop on by :)



  • Omg jack and sally!

    I loved one of the games they put out and was looking forward to doing the campaigny thing they had set up but they closed the doors cause no one bit



  • Do they do like Burn Notice style of stuff too? Or is it all slice of life drama?


  • Pitcrew

    @magee101 can you clarify what you mean by burn notice stuff?


  • Pitcrew

    Burn Notice is a TV show from USA where a BURNED US spy is living in Miami and doing this serialized 'mission of the week' for desperate people who are in trouble. Google it, decent show.

    A lot of it is self-started. So, like, @thesuntsar, @bear_necessities, and I decided we wanted to play criminals... so we created some criminals and started doing stuff.

    If you wanted to play a Michael Westen type, I'm sure you could, as long as you take ownership for coming up with stuff to do. Jack and Sally have put some things out for the game at large and individual players, but a lot of it is "what do you want to play? cool, play that."

    The PrP policy is really flexible. Want to burn down a store? Go for it. Want to burn down the town? Ask first.



  • The show burn notice, burnt spy fighting against the ppl that burned him and trying to get his life back thru a series of whacky advenyures and explosions

    With that chick with the horrible accent. Jesus.



  • @shincashay Horrible, but accurate.

    @magee101 You shouldn't have too much difficulty with a character like that, as long as there's no problem with sticking to the confines of the town. You can go elsewhere with the TP rooms, but the RP will be focused on the town and the people who live there. I'm sure we can dig up people (PCs or NPCs) that might need your help. We're all willing to do what we can to make sure everyone on the grid is having a good time. And as @krmbm said, there is a criminal element to contend with as well, so there's that aspect to consider.

    Just to toe-kick this thread a little, I had a tremendous amount of fun running a pretty chaotic scene tonight for a bunch of people. I feel like this is important to highlight because so often anything with more than a couple of people turns into hell on wheels as folks scatter or someone gets grouchy and needs to make their grouch A Thing right then and there.

    Didn't happen tonight, just was a real pleasure to ST for some super nice players. Good crew on this game. :)


  • Pitcrew

    There was definitely A+ storytelling going on tonight. We have a few people who do awesome scheduled PRPs! And there's a couple of us that will do impromtu stuff on the grid :)


  • Pitcrew

    The scene was epic and it was appreciated. Everyone involved did an awesome job. It's nice to find a place, after being on hiatus for so long, that was welcoming and doesn't go big on the OOC drama. Thanks again for the scene.

    I mean she literally got rid of the accent in the first non-pilot episode.

    But then for some reason they used a clip of her saying "moy-AHH-me" in the into sequence for years.

    It helps a lot when you have a great ST that makes it fun for everyone.

    Which you are. :D


  • Pitcrew

    As a recent player myself (just apped my first alt!), I can honestly say that this game is a blast! I was a little skeptical at first, but as long as you can find cool people to play with and aren't too shy about paging people to be involved in things, it's really easy to get into and the community is great and friendly!

    Fully endorsed!

    I was having a little bit of trouble getting back into the headspace of Briony, since it's been so long since I was active on her. (I'm not retiring her, but just letting that be for a moment!)

    So I made a new PC:

    Hellion Little Sister GO -- Ianthe Abernathy. She's from New York, so if you have a character from NY too and want ties hit me up!



  • I have tried out MUSHs before, but it had felt very difficult to really get into anything. I took a chance on Calaveras since I wanted a break from the other text RP site I am a part of and I'm glad I did. The people are great, the rp is great, and I am loving every moment of it.
