Welcome to Somerville, Massachusetts!
We are a dark city and crime based role-play group. There will be a little bit of everything from drugs, sex, murder, as well as many other dark and taboo themes. We will not ask anyone to change their creation because it makes others uncomfortable, we do not stiffle anyones muse here in The City.
For any role-playing group to survive we need to see activity. Without it, a group simply can not last. Of course you are not expected to be here every day, but there will be activity checks and the owners will check your owes list. We understand life gets in the way, but your owes list should not be sitting for longer than a month with owes on it. You are expected to have at the very least, three active storylines within the group. We will do group blasts as well, and while they are optional, you won’t want to miss out on the fun. If a hiatus is needed please reach out to the owners and we will be happy to provide some flexibility with acivity. Eventually we will be having a bi-weekly activity check. There will be plenty of notice between checks. If an activity check becomes challenging or you need extra time please feel free to reach out.
This is a ‘create your own’ type of roleplay group, we do however have a few things we ask of you; your character must be 21 years of age or older and 100% human (no witches, warlocks, wizards or werewolves). We will only allow one character per writer in this group, if we find out that you are being dishonest and playing more than once character, both will be removed immediately.
Discord is a must here in The City. Discord is where group conversations will happen. If general chit chat isn't your thing that is totally fine but you will be asked to participate in blasts.
No one is perfect and we understand that, we all make mistakes. But please have the general basic of grammar down. We are a multi-para role-play group. Your replies and starters should be at least three paragraphs in length with six to eight sentences per paragraph. In group blasts para writing is completely fine. Quality over quantitiy.
We have a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for out of character drama. It will NOT be allowed. We are ALL adults here so let’s act like it. If you feel you have a problem that can not be solved with another member then please come and speak to the owners and we will be more than happy to help. In character drama is HIGHLY encouraged!
We reserve the right to change our update these rules as we see fit, at anytime.

Davis Square is a major intersection in the northwestern section of Somerville, Massachusetts where several streets meet: Holland Street, Dover Street, Day Street, Elm Street, Highland Avenue, and College Avenue. The name is often used to refer to the West Somerville neighborhood surrounding the square as well.
Davis Square is located approximately four miles from downtown Boston, and two miles from mid-Cambridge. The square is served by the Davis Square Station, one of the stops on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA)'s Red Line. Davis abuts the Powder House Square, Magoun Square and Spring Hill neighborhoods, as well as Tufts University.
Davis Square is today a vibrant commercial, retail, nightlife and dining district. Businesses in Davis range from stores to restaurants to even a martial arts school. Davis fell into decline after World War II. After the Red Line was extended to Davis in the mid-1980s, however, the area began to experience a prolonged renaissance.
Assembly Square is a neighborhood in Somerville, Massachusetts. It is located along the west bank of the Mystic River, bordered by Ten Hills and Massachusetts Route 28 to the north and the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston to the south. The district's western border runs along Interstate 93. Located 2.5 miles (4.0 km) from downtown Boston, the 143 acres (580,000 m2) parcel is named for a former Ford Motor Company plant that closed in 1958.
The area is home to Assembly Row, a 45-acre (180,000 m2) mixed-use, smart growth development that broke ground in April 2012 and opened 2014. It includes retail outlets, restaurants, residential space, office and research and development space, a 12-screen cinema and a 200-room hotel. Other amenities include a marina, revitalized waterfront park, bike paths and other green space.
Assembly Row's first stage of development was the Assembly Square Marketplace. Completed in 2006, the marketplace is a "power center" that comprises retail stores Christmas Tree Shops, Burlington, Trader Joe's, Staples, TJMaxx, and Bed Bath & Beyond.
The area is served by the MBTA Orange Line at Assembly station.
Union Square is a neighborhood in the southeastern part of Somerville, Massachusetts. It is centered on Union Square proper, which is located at the intersection of Washington Street, Webster Avenue, and Somerville Avenue.
The name "Union Square" comes from the square having been used as a recruitment and mustering site for the Union Army in the American Civil War. A plaque commemorating the mustering site sits at the southwest corner of the square between Somerville Avenue and Washington Street, and the Prospect Hill Monument is located several blocks away atop Prospect Hill. Union Square is now the commercial center of a primarily residential neighborhood with many restaurants, bars and neighborhood stores.
As the oldest and largest commercial area in the city, Union Square is home to a number of community institutions, including the Somerville Police headquarters, Somerville Community Access Television (SCATV), and Boston Free Radio.[
Ball Square is a neighborhood primarily in Somerville, Massachusetts, but also extending into Medford, at the intersection of Boston Avenue and Broadway, located between Powder House Square and Magoun Square. It is primarily a residential area with a handful of shops and restaurants along Broadway. Located on the edge of the neighborhood surrounding Tufts University, Ball Square contains a mix of businesses serving the student and academic populations as well as those reflecting the more blue-collar neighborhoods to the east. These establishments include Kelly's Diner, Sound Bites, and Ball Square Cafe, all popular for breakfast; True Grounds, a coffee shop; Taco Party, Lyndell's Bakery; House of Kebab, an Indian restaurant; and Avenue Kitchen and Bar.
The Brown School, opened in 1900, is located on Willow Avenue and serves the neighborhood's children from kindergarten to fifth grade. It's the only K-5 school in the Somerville School District.
Ball Square was formerly the site of the storied Willow Jazz Club. In the 1990s, a fire destroyed several commercial businesses on Broadway, and as those businesses were replaced, an economic transformation began that continues today, with long-time businesses such as Lyndell's Bakery, which dates to the 19th century, along the same stretch as Ball Square Fine Wines and Liquor, a high-end wine shop, KenkoDo Clinic, an Acupuncture and wellness clinic, Amal Niccoli Salon, Salon Cu and Lindsay Griffin, hair salons to name a few of many businesses.
Ball Square is a planned stop on the Green Line as part of the MBTA's anticipated extension of the surface rail line.
