DAUS is an original supernatural genre forum RP with a murder mystery twist. There is no word count and we have a very easy freestyle app. Here we like to encourage creativity and member driven plots and offer a lot of freedom in terms of your characters and the stories you create. DAUS takes place in a small town outside of Seattle, WA called Cheshire near Tiger Mountain Park. It is currently:

Feel free to poke around all you'd like, we'd love to have you join us. To answer a frequent question from the c-box, we are active. We are, however, a small site right now so there are times when no one is online. If you have questions and no one is around to answer them, leave them in the Suggestion Box forum and an admin will get to them later that day.

New Posts Main Street
In a town like Cheshire, Main Street is called Main Street for a reason. This is the road that runs straight through the middle of the town and is the only way in or out at both ends. Along the North end of Main are smaller middle class two and three bedroom houses. The ones directly along Main are older styles and Victorian influenced where the ones along all the side streets and neighborhoods get to be newer house the farther out you go. Directly along South Main is all businesses and community buildings like the Library, Town Hall, Police and Fire Station, the couple local Banks, and so on. Like with the Northern half there are side streets full of businesses as well.

New Posts Restaurants and Cafes
There are restaurants and little cafes scattered all over Cheshire though many of them culminate around the center of town. There aren't a lot of chain stores here, you'll have to go to a bigger city for those but they do have a lot of locally and family owned substitutes. Diners, Sandwich shops, Chinese, Italian, Pizza, Smoothies, Coffee. There might not be a lot here but you're almost guaranteed to find something to fill your cravings.

New Posts Entertainment
Have I mentioned that Cheshire is small yet? With small town comes a certain level of boringness and you'd have to head to Seattle for anything really exciting but there are some things here to keep you entertained. We have a movie theater and a bowling alley, a skating rink, an arcade, a playhouse, a concert hall, and a few other exciting things to do on your Friday and Saturday nights.

New Posts City Park
Cheshire actually has three main parks. One is behind Town Hall in the center of town and the other two are located at opposite ends of the town in the north east and south west areas of residences. There is lots of safe play equipment and benches and shady trees as well as pavilions for rent for parties and cookouts.

New Posts Cheshire School District
The school district of Cheshire includes an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school. These are all pretty standard school districts, K-5, 6-9, and 10-12 and run like any other school district would though will very small class sizes. There is usually one or two teachers per grade in elementary school and subject based teachers that rotate to whatever class in middle and high school. There are day cares and preschools and homeschooling done outside of the school districts as well if that's more what you need. Though Cheshire doesn't have it's own community college there are community classes that can be signed up for through the local Rec Center.

New Posts Residential Areas
The majority of residences in Cheshire are mostly houses and a few town homes. There aren't really apartments here in Cheshire though there are some rented houses that have been modified into apartment size pieces. Most of what you'll find here is two and three bedroom homes varying in condition and size. The more expensive homes are located in the west with the privacy of the woods behind them and the cheaper homes are in the northeast section of town. Everything else is rather normal and pretty much just varies on the amount of care the owner has for the property.

New Posts The Woods
The woods are all around the east and west portions of the city. The eastern woods merge into the Tiger Woods after awhile where the western woods are thinner and more flat. A lot of townies like to go for walks through here or just go out for camping. The supernatural community know that the closer you get to Tiger Mountain the closer you are to the wolf packs that call those woods their hunting grounds. They are only truly dangerous on the full moon but there is still that knowledge that going in there alone - especially at night - isn't something you want to do.

New Posts Seattle
Seattle sits about 40 minutes away from the town of Cheshire. Just take the road out of town and hop on the nearby Interstate 90 and take it right into the heart of downtown Seattle.

New Posts Tiger Mountain Park
Tiger Mountain National Park sits right in Cheshire's backyard. Within Cheshire's borders sits some woodlands but outside of those borders is the thick and twisting woodlands of the Park. This is open for everyone and free of charge and popular for hiking when the weather allows. This is also a common meeting ground for the werewolves of the area.

New Posts The Past
Here's where you can play out any events in your character's timeline that might have happened before they started here on DAUS. Do you want to write when your character was bitten or first shifted? Maybe when their powers manifested? Or perhaps when some tragedy happened in their life or they met someone important. Whatever it is you can play it out here.

Here is where you can play out whatever creative ideas you might have for your characters that might not fit in with the site story line. Gender switching? Species switch? Or perhaps you just want to explore them in another setting with different characters around them. You can create any situation or universe you want here. Just make sure you're clear about the differences.
