Here I am! ... Friday update!

How time just slips right past me! :O

I've been reading every update and clicking every link sent to me about rpland. Thank you so much for them! I'm sorry that I don't seem active on writing these past few months. I promise I will catch up when I am done working on my current coding projects. It all has to do with my future writing with you. Thank you for your understanding and patience. I have so many ideas and creative steam but not enough time to get it all done quick enough. :)

Here is what I have been working on...

Back-stories are not available yet! I'll update with the links soon in another entry. These new chars are crucial to some major SLs coming up. Please look forward to these updates! ;D

Here are some notes I need to mention...

- Time updating new pbs for some chars I have to breathe new life into.

- This also includes some back story changes. Nothing too crazy.

- So far I'm doing this to my chars: Ian Choi and Draven Wu

I'll post the changes here when they come. <3

Any questions or concerns? Please post them in the comment thread below. :)

Have a great weekend! *BIG HUGS*

Leeman Master List

Sep. 6th, 2017


Here is part one of the vampire stuff I promised...

The next part will be the history bit I have for each coven. I'm keeping original ideas that are over ten years old and remixing them to where they make sense today. These covens do not need to apply to everyone else's chars, btw! But if you would like to plug in, that would be very awesome. I grouped my chars according to personality. The turned ones are in the same coven as the one as the ones who sired them. I can do actual sire and newborn list later if you would like. For now, we have this.

If you would like me to add your vampire char to the list, please let me know in this entries comments. ;)

Thinking back now... maybe I should have done the history first? Oh well! It looks good. If there's anything confusing, please ask and I can always add and fix what I have here.

That's all for now! -mwah!-

The Vampire Covens of Hannah (members)

And I banished every memory you and I had ever made... )

first & last update for August! lol!!!

Now that I got the char birthday list
out of the way, I can focus on other things.

I'll have updates on the vampire stuff up soon. It will be in several pieces and the updates will be gradual. I don't want it to be overwhelming. Following that, I'll be doing a mass update on my vampire char journals.

This is where I'm at right now.

Time to get to work. ;)

Happy Friday everyone!

Just a little heads up on some updates that I'll be doing for furture rp land stuffs. I apologize that I've been slacking on a lot of writing. The heat takes a huge toll on me and zaps my energy. I'm pushing through it and I'm going to make up for it all in a big way!

While I'm still working on coding for my new char masterlist which seems like a never ending thing, I'm working on some some important Hannah stuff. I'm going to work on vampire stuff because there's a lot going on there. Here's what I'll be working on in next few days or weeks, however long it takes -

-coven info
-purple ribbon militia info
-who da hell are the queens (i made 4)
-Mondragon info

I'm also going to work on location stuff. Remember this? -

That and a lot more. I'll post updates here.

So that's it for now. Love you all! ♡♡♡

PS - I'm always open for suggestions. Anything you'd like to add in, please share any ideas you have. It's all appreciated.

Extra note - I'm also bringing all gender-bend chars into the actual sl. I'll put more info up very soon. <3
