By Esmeralda Siamendes
TYPE: CD Offical Business
BACKGROUND: Brian O'Shea, the current owner of the butchery, and Isolee Crow, my character, have had stories in the past, leading to the current roleplay which would put Isolee in charge of the Slab if approved. Isolee and the Crows would not have a business implication in the butchery. They do not deal with money and they do not possess enough sanity to handle a business as it normally should be. However, the location would serve for their purposes: easy disposal of bodies, preparation of their meat, playground, and a new location to snare and snag people from. To the world, Brian would remain the owner of the butchery and he would try to keep the place running, hoping to counter the poisonous influence of Isolee on his business. Having a Crow behind the wheel will mean a lot of changes for employees and customers alike. The most noticeable one will be the barter system. Isolee might have been greedy once but her new family does not believe in money so they will be exchanging meat for other goods. This will create various interesting situations such as: • Defining what is worth a pound of flesh • Employees realizing they are being paid in barter in turn (could lead to potential RPs with the thrift shop and pawn shop as they try to resell what they received) • As time goes by and funds grow low, the source of the meat will get less and less certain In general, this ‘take over’ will aim to bring further horror and terror to daily lives of Hathianites. You might simply go in to purchase a slice of ham but you would never know how or when you might come out. The origin of the meat would be more often than not questionable, likely to create situations in other businesses (Gein, The Pie Hole, Diner etc if they got their meat from The Slab). The business will slowly degenerate, employees possibly too scared to quit or embracing the chaos. As time passes and rumors grow about the strange happenings at the Slab it is likely to attract curious onlookers, some wished for and others unwanted. Isolee is a very possessive being, therefore she will go to many extents to protect what she considers hers. That would of course include the shop as well as the employees. It is likely that the business and people that worked there would gain her protection. Whether they would wish for a Crow to meddle with their affairs is another matter entirely. The aim and direction taken for this proposal is to bring a new source of violence, horror and terror to the city. Crows are not the easiest to approach and, while it is unlikely you will see any of them simply tending the counter, they will be lurking around and about the business, making for a new opportunity to interact with them. With Brian remaining as a visible figurehead and trying in the shadows to keep the business afloat, the butchery should not collapse on itself even if Isolee's and her family's actions will put a strain on that. The dynamic that will emerge from this will probably catch the employees in its wake as well. It is likely the Crows activity and presence will ebb and flow depending on the storylines and the pressure put on the business but Isolee herself will never wander too far.
EXPERIENCE:OOCly I will welcome each and every employee to the group, my aim being that working at the Slab is not just tending a counter for a few hours a day but actually bringing you a real storyline linked to it. I personally believe that a CD business' strengths lies in the people that work there. I am hoping to create an alluring experience that will have people wanting to RP at the store often. From this point on I hope this will act as a snowball effect as the stories they bring will only keep feeding into others, making for an active and fun location to work in. At least on an OOC level! I have not yet led a group in CD but I am looking forward to the opportunity and feel I will be up to the task. I have been playing in Crack Den for more than a year now and I have been a constant presence both IC and OOC. I really love helping people work through their character's roleplay and being a support to it, which is something that I am hoping to help further as a community leader. In addition, this proposal has been worked on and thought of with Brian, the past owner for the shop, who will be around still as his storyline remains deeply linked to the proposal. I will make good use of any guidance he offers both IC and OOC!
