The News Branch
Scriptor Bay is going to be receiving a full over haul come August 2nd. Not only is it our one year anniversary but we’re going to be adding to our story and changing everything about what you know!
Exciting news, isn’t it? Stay tuned for more awesomeness to follow!
Therian | Red Deer | 27 | Straight
Dashiell Adrien Prideaux has an interesting background. His family is loving, all Therians, and they all tend to take on more equine and other hooved animals as their shifting shape. His mom took on the shape of a British White Bovine (not the most majestic of creatures, but it fit her) and his dad was a Lipizzaner Stallion, all priss. A strange match for a different couple. You see, Dash’s father was a cross-dresser or more specifically a drag queen. A straight, drag queen, but one nonetheless. His mother was a normal caring mother, almost boring, who just happened to love her husband’s fabulousness. Not many people understood it, not even really Dashiell. But how much they cared for each other doesn’t really matter, what matters is the Dashiell and his sisters were brought into the world and cared for by two loving parents, who both happened to be extremely mothering.
The Disappearing Act (Open to all!)
The Disappearing Act - the museum plot where a small group of individuals try to steal an exhibit. Will it be for the good of the city or will it only do damage?
This plot is an open thread where anyone can join. If you’re human you’re limited to just having fun at the party, or even spotting the thieves. If you’re not human then you have the chance to join in on the heist.

The Scriptor Bay Museum was known to host several banquets throughout the year in order to keep it funded. Although they made money through the tax payer’s hard earned dollars and tickets that they sold for certain exhibits, it was hardly enough to keep the museum funded alone. Not with the staff that they had on hand, the outside company that they hired to move out old displays and bring in new ones. And of course, can’t forget the cost of storage for the old displays before they were shipped elsewhere!
So the museum held banquets and always sent invitations to their most valuable clientele. Of course they didn’t have to pay to attend these parties, but those who didn’t receive a formal invite had to purchase a ticket for $60! Of course all the proceeds went to the museum directly and not a third party, which made it much more of a bearable price to the working man or woman.
Giant lights shone and rotated, illuminating the museum like some sort of flashy advertisement. It was to draw everyone’s attention to it and it worked well. The pillars that held the up the front of the building were decorated elegantly, another thing to make it aesthetically pleasing and inviting.
Around the perimeter of the building was security as a precautionary procedure just like every other banquet that was hosted there. They didn’t want someone to sneak in and steal anything of value. Not to mention it made those with money feel much safer knowing that they wouldn’t be pick pocketed while they were enjoying a glass of champagne over cool conversation.
Cars were pulling up to the front of the building as a valet service that was hired just for the night would take the keys and park the vehicles in a parking structure that was just across the street. They outdid themselves like they did every time. They knew they’d get enough donations to pay for the cost of it all from the guests of the banquet. And if not? Then they’d hold another in less than a month’s time.
The banquet didn’t start until eight but the building was already filling up quickly with guests.Read more:http://scriptorbay.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=museum&action=display&thread=979&page=1#ixzz1nzGe7bwI
We’ve made it to March! I hope everyone is doing well and had a wonderful February! This year is a leap year so there was 29 days in the month of February making the month a little longer. (Although it was still quite short if you ask me!)
We’re in a brand new month however and I’m here to bring you brand spankin’ new news! So sit back and give your fingers a break and see what’s in store!
The Welcoming Crew:
Unfortunately we haven’t gained any new members in the last month. But we have gained a few new characters! So if you haven’t had the opportunity to check out their bios yet I’ll gladly point you in the right direction!
Prestine Davenport: Gargoyle
Although Prestine may appear young and cute don’t let her looks deceive you. Because she is a Gargoyle she looks late twenties but she’s actually 88. Not only does her looks lead you on but so does her sweet act. She eats men for dinner. She loves all of the men who are in her life for a short period of time, giving them the nickname of “kitten” and using them in whatever way she pleases.
Sebastian Davenport: Gargoyle
Similar to his sister Prestine, Sebastian too sports good looks and a charming smile when it’s convenient for him. However, he’s different from his sister with the way he treats the women (and sometimes men) in his life. He can be cruel and abusive, feeling a sense of power over those who aren’t of the Gargoyle species.
Zoey Clark: Blurr
The bubbly blonde can most likely be seen all around the city supporting different community benefits. She holds a job as a Professor at the University teaching both Paleontology and Creative Writing. Although she appears young, because she’s a Blurr she ages slower and is actually 46.
The Story Thus Far:
The Scriptor Bay Museum banquet is being hosted! Will the McLeester sisters, Griffin and Flynn pull off the heist or will they run into trouble?
The formal black tie event is open for anyone as long as you show your ticket at the door. Enjoy a night of art, music and class. Or if you’ve heard through the grapevine about the exhibit and feel that it shouldn’t be revealed to the public then join in on the mission at hand!*
*NOTE: In order to get involved with the heist the character cannot be Human.
New Features and Updates:
I’m going to be working on a new advertising video. I’m hoping that it will bring more members to the forum! If there’s anything you might want to suggest for the advertisement video whether it be video clips, a song or just a general theme then feel free to let me know!
Riddle Of The Month:
So the answer to last month’s riddle was: The Letter E
Whoever makes it, tells it not.
Whoever takes it, knows it not.
Think you know the answer? Reply and see!
We’ve added a new section to our forum - Scrapbooking & Photo Albums. Where you can put pictures for visuals of anything that is character related!
Our first entry is Griffin’s Condo.
A Brand New Look!
So the board has had the same skin and format for the last three months. It’s been decided that it’s time for a change! We’re saying our farewells to long gone members and saying hello to a new and better layout! Of course, it’s still in the making. But do expect a beautiful new look by mid March. Followed by new plots, characters, and even a brand new species!
We’re hoping our new look and species will attract more new members to come and play. We’re very excited and welcome everyone to check it out once it’s done.
