For those of you who were wondering, yes, I'm still alive and kicking. I may be a little spotty at times, but that just means I'm extra active when I am here! So, don't be shy, reach out to me anytime you feel like chatting or embarking on a new role-play journey.

Current response times: Slow, I am back to 2-3 day response times for most threads! I am sorry for all the ups and downs recently, but this is all to ensure I don't disappear again. So I am trying to balance my time a bit better, but don't be afraid to say hi.

Behind The Mask
You can call me Troy, it has been my online persona since the dawn of chat rooms. He was the first character I created for a story in junior high and a name I stuck with when I started to Roleplay. I respond to it even in a crowd it has been used for so long by many friends over the years.

To say how long I have been Rping would surely age me, but I started online roleplay in AOL chatrooms, IRC, message boards, and then Private RP Ultima online servers (Shout out to anyone who was part of that small community). I strictly write long-form now.

I live in sunny CA in the PST timezone.

I am very OOC friendly, to chat and BS, and to plot up other Roleplaying ideas.

Yes, I have Discord. No, I don't Rp there. I am not super active on it but if you want to chat there all you have to do is ask and I'll happily share.

I often try to match response times to my partners. If you send a response once a week, I'll likely be doing the same less the muse suddenly strikes. I do get busy and can't often respond more than once a day, or every day. This is always in flux, but be patient, but also don't be afraid to check in and let me know if I am slowing down, or if you perhaps have more time and would like to speed things up too.

I have a family, pets, and a job, so time here is limited, but don't be afraid to reach out if you feel that our RP is being neglected. Though I can occasionally disappear, I am never trying to ghost people. If it's been a while reach out, and if I disappeared due to life or mental health, I will respond when I return.

I don't do social media, RpR is the closest thing I have to it. So I am a little strange about having a public persona here. (Online social anxiety?) In either case, don't be afraid to shoot me a line, I am far friendlier and more expressive in smaller settings.

Roleplay Preference

Paragraphs! Please I need at least 2-3 Detailed Paraphs to be able to respond.
18+ Writing partners only, please be honest, mature scenes are inevitable.
Story first, I enjoy smut, taboo, and dark Rp, but it must be building towards something greater.
Romance, I like some sort of romance in my RP, even if it is the toxic, twisted kind.
Character building, perhaps my favorite part, taking a character concept and turning it into something greater.
Open and honest communication, I will always try and be the same, with dark themes I need to know that my partners will come to me with issues, concerns, or complaints. This is important to make sure that I am not touching on subjects that might harm someone's mental health and to help with my anxiety to ensure nothing is taken personally.

Smut only, if short-term and expressed beforehand, but I prefer the character and story building.
Fandoms, Though I do not have a long list there are a few book series I might be interested in.
Worldbuilding, though I enjoy it, can be exhausting and limit how much I am willing to do.
Groups, as above, I find them enjoyable but with limits for reasons of both time and anxiety.
Multiple Characters, It is not uncommon for me to play side characters in a thread, don't be afraid to do the same.
Fade to Gray, Sometimes sex scenes drag on beyond one's muse, maybe someone had to take a break and we need to start a new scene. There is nothing wrong with summarizing scenes a bit to move past something. You only need to ask, I'll never refuse to summarize something if a writer reaches out and says something is hard to write.

First Person Writing, I've tried but my brain says nope, too confusing.
Permanent death or disfigurement, though if discussed marks, scars, and tattoos can become so.
Canon Character, I enjoy building characters, not the anxiety of trying to act like a certain character.
Fade to Black, The more gritty details are part of what I enjoy, gotta have something to look forward to.

Worlds, Groups and More

Take a load off, have a look around and even send a PM if something piques your interest.

A special thanks to all more the Roleplaying partners, contributors, and friends that helped inspire, live in, and build these special places with me

I only write with 21+ players, and I love to explore the more risqué side of things. If you enjoy steamy sex scenes, violence, adventure, and even the more extreme and taboo if that's up your alley. But, fair warning, my role-plays can get a little intense, so don't be afraid to put some ground rules before you join in on the fun.

When it comes to writing, I'm a bit of a mixed bag. I love writing short and snappy 3-paragraph responses, but I also love getting lost in longer, multi-paragraph posts that will leave you breathless. I'm pretty flexible when it comes to length, and prefer a good mix but I do require at least a few paragraphs to really dive into the role-play.

I have a few characters ready and waiting for action, but I also love creating new ones that fit perfectly into any role-play niche. And, if you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to send me a PM.

Rave Reviews

TroyLocke is a grade A RPer, he's detailed and thorough with a keen grasp of how to keep the story going and gives you a lotto work with. More so he is a great guy with an amazing attitude and kindness - VenatorNocturnus
Try was suggested to me by a friend and I couldn't be more pleased. His writing is sublime, story building is phenomenal, and I adore his character Einar! I have absolutely loved our writing and his kindness seems to have no bounds to it. He is worth every ounce of your patience, because his replies are always worth any wait period. He's been incredible! - Hades_
