LaFourche Crossing is a brand new RP, owned by Jeremiah and Amira Xuanzang. Five sims make up the town, giving an authentic feel of south-eastern America. Nestled in the swamps of Louisiana is the small town of Lafourche Crossing, a place laden with history, mystery and tradition. At first glance, the newly remodeled buildings of this classical town center seem friendly and inviting. However, citizens will tell you there are secrets to be found, and questions to be answered. There are forces mingling along the edges of the mist, all with special interests in the direction this small town takes. One being the self-proclaimed Queen of the Swamp. No one is left unmoved by an encounter with her. There are some however that would warn you to use caution when dealing with her and use this motto often: “Ira Regina Mors Est” It is wise to take this caveat to heart. Story After a rash of killings in the mid-1970’s, Lafourche Crossing had almost lost its incorporation status as a city. Residents of this small town fled in fear as these deaths could never be solved. While some thought it was a drifter, others felt it was “The Big One” a gator, feared for not only its size but it’s unusual strength. As time passed, a series of setbacks would spread across the area; from contaminated water to an eventual drought that all but destroyed the fishing industry in the area. With a population dwindling below 150, businesses closed and anyone who still lived in the area had to travel well out of their way for jobs. Years later, a pair of massive hurricanes would move through and finish off most of the city. With Lafourche Crossing and the surrounding parish underwater, people had no choice but to move out and move on. One resident would remain, the lady in the swamp. Rumors had swirled around her for years, but to some, she was known as a direct descendant of THE Marie Laveau, and had been taught the ways of both Voodoo and Santeria from a young age. Her studies in numerous ancient paths and traditions had made her well known in some circles as specializing in rare, original voodoo occult items, from hand-made magical fetishes and wards, to voodoo statues and good luck charms. Many believed that she used her knowledge and abilities to contain the darkness deep in the swamp, and she was soon known to offer charms to any who chose to return to the area. In recent years, many have returned to the Louisiana Bayou, opening businesses and settling in with their families. Workers had even been able to refurbish older buildings to their original state and reestablish the town municipal services. Whether through coincidence or the conjurations of Priestess Laveau, Lafourche Crossing seems to be thriving. http://lafourchecrossing-rp.com/ http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lafourche%20Crossing/129/195/1499 https://www.flickr.com/groups/lafourchecrossing-rp/ As storylines develop, the RP is gaining new members daily.
