Mounted Police RPG

Recommended Posts

This is a revamp of an RPG that's been around for a while, but needs some new blood. Please join!

In this RPG, you will play mounted police officers In Washington, D.C. The station is a new construction located in the middle of the city, and hides what could be considered a farm. There are a few acres of paddock space to let the horses get a bit of excersize, and a large barn with a tack room and a lounge. There is also a bit of office space. Now, while the area is a police station, all the horses must be under complete supervision at all time, because there is a chance they may be stolen. At night, the horses are kept in the barn, where each stall is securely locked, as well as the barn door, with a security guard keeping watch. There are more than enough stalls for all the horses there. And as with all jobs, there are shifts.

Officers take 12-hour shifts every day - 8:00 am to 8:00 pm (shift one), and 8:00 pm to 8:00 am(shift two). All the policemen/women here have been tranferred to fill up the ranks, as the department needs a lot of help.

You may have multiple characters, and every single character played will be on shift number one. Having multiple characters for seperate times will just get too confusing. Each character may have only one horse. There are no breed restictions, but please stick with breeds that would be good for the job. Please feel free to post pictures too. And all characters will be moving to the new facility from their previous placement.

The rules:

no pp-ing (without permission)

no god-moding (that's for something like getting shot in the head; no one would be able to survive it. But hey, your character can survive all sorts of numerous small wounds [Wink] )

no cussing (but words like dang and crud are OK)

I also have a little bit on ages:

23 is the lowest age possible. Any younger than that, and they would still be in some kind of training.

Ages 23 to 30 are still kind of new to the game, messing up every now and then.

Ages 31 to about 37 or so are an intermediate level, they know the ropes, but they don't know everything yet.

Ages 38 and up are old pros. They know everything in the book and then some, and end up helping out the younger people a lot. And the older the caracter is, the more experience they have.

Kennedy walks into the barn area where everyone else is. Bobby and Corey trail him, talking between themselves. Kennedy turns aside to go to Miles' stall, and Bobby and Corey see everybody else.

"Whoa!" Corey exalaims, looking at all the girls. "Where did everybody come from?"

Bobby grins, nudging Corey. "And they all look like they're around your age, too."

OOC: Just an FYI, for the sake of this RPG, there aren't going to be any really bad fraternization rules. Just no (really bad) PDA.

"That's not exactly what I meant, but that works too," Corey says, in reference to Sam's being from Manhattan.

Bobby grins as he hears Viv. "Exactly what he said," he says, pointing at Corey.

"Hey, I'm Bobby," Bobby says, grinning.

"My name's Corey," Corey says, "And the strong, silent type over there is my brother, Kennedy." He points at Kennedy in Vodka's stall.

Kennedy looks out of the stall, and waves once, smiling, before getting back to work.

"And I am the only one who really knows how things work around here," Erika laughs, still brushing Lee. "I'm Erika. And if you'd like, you can call me Mom."

"Well, I'm glad we're all getting to know each other!" A new voice comes from the barn door. A tall man is standing there, his arms akimbo and a smile on his face. "I'm Joe McKenzie, and I'm the chief here. We're going to let all of you out a little later today, becuase I know you and your rides are all going to get used to the place. I know it's almost..." he looks at him watch, "Quarter of eight am now, but once you get all your things set up, we'll start sending you out to patrol."

Keith was already there, getting Rhythm settled in her stall. He talked soothingly to the mare as he spread another bag of shavings over the floor, then grabbed her two water buckets and went to fill them. Returning, he hung the buckets, and gave the mare a bit of hay.

Jenna had already arrived at the station barn. Leaning against Sunny's stall she watched as the mare at. After a little while she walked into the tackroom to retrieve her groomign kit and her police tack. Brinign it back to Sunny's stall she began groomign over the palomino's back. She was quite clean actually but Jenna made sure her white fur on her side was pure white. After throwing her blue police saddle pad on, she placed the saddle up and tightened the girth. Deciding she didn't need to put her bridle on right that second, so she haltered her and put her on the stall lead line. Letting herself wander down the aisle she ame upon Keith in Rythmn's stall and stopped to start a tad conversation. "Hello! I'm Jenna Wallingford." She grinned. She was quite outgoing and normally was always the conversation starter.
