The Yellow Brick RowAbout Emerald City
Just for those of you who don't know...
Emerald City is a nice city somewhere between Seattle and Portland. It's a bit of a reputation for being somewhat of a Silicon Valley. New technology business are popping up all over the place. This is great for Emerald City as there was just a economic downturn that had folks struggling for awhile. The New business avenues have also lead to a resurgence of college activity in Emerald City; Folks are trying to get into college and work their way into one of the local companies.
The Yellow Brick row is in downtown Emerald City. It's a big out door mall with plenty to do and plenty of merchandizing and booths to attract visitors. There's a movie theater and everything you would expect to find. There also a strong Asian flair to the area thanks to the influence of Jade Town, Emerald City's Chinatown.
Also character should be on the periphery of the mall, and shouldn't be deep in the district.
The sun is shining and everything seems alright. The yellow painted streets seem to glitter in the sunlight; the birds are chirping and sound inviting and comforting. The kind of bird chirping that you hear in movies, too perfect to be real. Mostly that's because expensive speakers attached to the three story buildings that make up the Yellow Brick Row mall are playing it. The stores and new and pristine. Everything around the mall makes you think you should be smelling fresh plastic. The big bay windows and modern architecture of the mall show off the new and expensive renovations. Next door the mall is a well-planned park complete with small pond and manufactured gorgeous streams rolling through the water ways.
Outside there are tables and chairs with umbrellas overhead, booths set up to sell sunglasses, cell phones and other knick knacks that no one would care for anywhere else. Music plays out from several shops, college students dressed in aprons and trendy clothes set out to sell drinks, display items or pass out filers for the trendy restaurants and bars. "Try out Smoothie!" "Try our Coffee!" "Our Cappuccino!" "You going to be at The Red Door tonight?!" "Come by tonight, we'll have drinks and open mic!"
Every one of you are at the Yellow Brick Row, for your own reasons. Exploring the mall, shopping, relaxing, or going to a second home to work out school or projects. You might be working in one of the shops, a comic book store, a coffee shop. You might be displaying a trendy clothing stores apparel using your unique looks to attract customers not used to seeing the strange sights like in Freedom City. The day seems perfect, the sun is shining, and everyone seems happy and blissful.
Okay, so feel free to post here. Explain why you are at the Yellow Brick Row, what your doing and we will move on from there.
A Note on Post Length: Word Economy is really still quite important to me. Three paragraphs is really what you should aim for, except here in your first introduction post. Feel free to embellish, but don't just stack paragraphs to try and be impressive. Good use of word economy is more impression then lengthy posts, sometimes less is more.
A Note on Dialogue: Do your best to maintain a realistic display of conversation. Most of the time, people don't talk in run on sentences, for paragraphs and paragraphs of text. Also most of the time people to wait to listen to someone rambling on and on. Just, don't overwhelm the post or the other players with lots of dialogue.
With that being said, Let's get started
