Sometimes characters come with a lot of extra info they like recorded. Mood boards, house plans, the occasional one-shot. All members are welcome to have their own forum to keep track of character extras. Simply fill out the board request if you would like one.

Characters love keeping in contact with one another. Whether it be texting or phone calls, instant messages and Skype, or even the age old fashion of hand written letters, it's the age of constant communication. The communication board is a great way to keep in contact with family, significant others, and friends.

With its prime location on the Chesapeake Bay, this part of town is the main hub for tourists visiting the city. The coastline is covered in sandy beaches that run alongside a boardwalk. A walk down the main strip will find some of the city's best restaurants, bars, clubs, and hotels.

While this neighborhood is lacking in some of the charm and character of the others, it is certainly not lacking in things to do. The commercial district is filled with your office parks, plazas, and a handful of factories. It is also the low rent district, housing the majority of the city's low income and subsidized housing.

The heart of the city, Downtown Lillian Bay is always bustling with something to do. Shopping, entertainment, you name it! Most city run offices can be found here, including the main branches of the police department, fire station, and public library. Along the water you'll find the modern port, popular for both shipping and recreation.

While Lily Heights is technically a suburb of Lillian Bay, it shares the city's public transit and is considered by many to be a part of the city itself. Lily Heights is much more rural than the city, however, and most properties come with at least an acre of land. There are also a few stables, farms, and historic plantations out this way for those who still want the country life coupled with the convenience of being so close to the city.

The oldest part of the city, this is where Thaddeus Mountweazel landed in 1650. The streets are filled with beautiful old colonials as well as homes reflective of the various ages the city has lived through. The majority of the homes are very well kept and as a result this is one of the higher income areas of the city.

Located on the bank of the York River, this district has lots of prime waterfront property. There are some great quiet neighborhoods as well as apartment complexes for people to live. The businesses here are geared more toward the local crowd than the tourists that file in and out throughout the seasons.

Virginia has quite the history and a number of other great cities and towns to explore. Whether it be the gardens at Monticello, Shenandoah National Park, or a trip up to Arlington and Washington DC, there are plenty of interesting places to see.

The United States is a pretty big place and not everyone is a local of Lillian Bay. It's nice to go home every once in a while. Or maybe it's just time for vacation.

This board is for the threads that don't take place in the present day Lillian Bay. Want to explore something that happened in the past? Perhaps a first date or the epic story those two best friends just cannot stop telling? Or maybe explore something yet to come, a sneak peek into the future. If you feel like bending time, this is the place to do it!

Whether you're going on vacation, bogged down by work or school, or plain ol' run out of muse, please post here if you're going to be away for a while. Absences ensure your characters won't be set to inactive during one of our activity sweeps. While we don't need all the gory details, we do ask that you provide an absence and approximate return date!
