On the surface, Point Pleasant, Maine certainly appears to be the kind of idyllic coastal town that every tourist would want to flock to during the warm summer months. It has that welcoming small town atmosphere that draws you in and makes you feel as though you belong. Locals will be sure to point out its gorgeous harbor, cozy little shops, the pollution free night skies, clear and full of stars... not to mention its disturbing fascinating history.

What the locals won't tell you is that for the past three hundred and twenty three years, Point Pleasant has unwittingly served as a nexus for the supernatural, the metaphysical, the evil and the damned. There are plenty who are dismissive of its history. After all, every town has a run of bad luck here and there. So what if Point Pleasant has an unusually high number of missing persons... strange and unexplainable deaths happen. That? That wasn't a monster you saw... monsters aren't real. Right?

Oh, everyone wants to talk about what's happening in their town, and yet no one really wants to talk about it. They're content with going on with their lives, getting through school, making another buck, getting through the day in one piece. But what they don't know is that ignoring the evil won't make it go away. Those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it, isn't that what they say? Simply put, whatever has been drawing the darkness into their small town is only getting started, and nobody is safe.

The Shadow Before is an original, horror based game set in the fictional town of Point Pleasant, Maine. This game is inspired by various elements of horror and the supernatural, and will include both game wide plots as well as individual arcs. Warning: Mature and dark themes lie ahead.

PREMISE
Most people would say that they know the story of Peter Pan as a free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can never grow up, leader of the Lost Boys, and able to fly with just the right amount of pixie dust. While all of this is true, Pan’s residence on the island has been in place since the early 1900s, and Neverland has changed.

Physically, the inhabitants of the island are youthful in appearance, though unquestionably, no one would mistake them for children. The dark shadows of their eyes speak of the bloodshed they've seen, the loved ones they've lost. Blissfully unaware, Pan continues to stir the pot with his games, anxiously awaiting new opportunities to draw new alliances or fracture the ones he's grown bored of maintaining. Through constant use of the wormhole, tears have been open into new worlds, efficiently cultivating new species and walks of life throughout the island.

A game of Savages can't have a clear winner, but everyone is playing all the same. And when the island can change on the whim of a boy, it's important to know where you stand when the sun sets over Neverland.

Phantoms takes place in Los Angeles, California. The glitz, the glamour, and the dark things that go "bump" in the night. These creatures have always lived beside us, in secret, in the shadows, until recently when vampires began to push for more publicity. They came "out of the coffin," so to speak, and since then the struggle for survival has been on the rise as other supernatural beings have begun coming out to the world. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is left to grapple with their existence.

The year began with a worldwide march against vampires and werewolves. There was another march, later in the day and night, which was in favor of vampires and werewolves. The two groups met and a brawl followed. Te death toll rose to 10, 5 humans, 3 vampires, and 2 werewolves. A state of emergency was declared and vampires and werewolves had all of their would-be rights revoked. They are named unofficial public enemies and the supernatural war begins.

Supernatural species, who were once in silent war with one another, must now work together in order to stop whoever is framing the vampires and werewolves of Los Angeles.

Welcome to the Rift
a panfandom rpg
The world is not as stable as you think. Ley lines, lines of magic energy, criss-cross the earth. Sometimes, where they intersect, form pockets, the walls between worlds get weaker. They put out siren calls that are nearly impossible to ignore. They open doors. Doors to other worlds. Other times. Other dimensions.

You have fallen through one of those doors.

NEW LEGACIES
We all know the stories. A man from Brooklyn is injected with a serum that turns him into the hero of WWII. Four people gain mysterious new abilities on an interstellar mission. A kid from Queens is bitten by a radioactive spider. A man forms a team of five mutants with hopes of changing the world. A god from another world finds himself trapped on Earth. The Avengers, The X-Men, The Future Foundation, SHIELD, and many more teams forming to help protect the world and stop threats faced both on the Earth and throughout the galaxy.

Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Wolverine, we all know their names. We know how they saved the world, the great deeds that they accomplished, what they sacrificed. But what happened as they got older? As they realized that they weren't going to live forever (well, some of them were, but that's besides the point), they realized that there was more than just saving the world. They wanted to have families, someone to carry on their legacies. They started to have children, and juggle family responsibilities with saving the world.

As their children got older, some of them decided to follow into the "family business". They started to take up the mantle's of their parents, or create something completely new and their own. These are their stories. The time of the old guard is past. Now is the time for the new generation to shine and start making their own stories.

[info]newlegacies is a next generation game set in the Marvel 616 universe. Original character friendly and adult versions of current canon children in Marvel Comics are welcome. The game is thread driven, with a focus on allowing players to plot not only for their characters, but for the game as a whole.

Deep inside the basement of the Museum of Natural History there is a secret, a disregarded and long-forgotten artifact, hidden away decades ago. Some call it the veil, others would say a tesseract, but all agree that it is a portal. Defying the laws of physics, this artifact can visit other dimensions, hop across universes, even speak to the dead and, some say, bring them back to life. It is an object to be feared and an object to be protected. After nearly a century of lying dormant, the portal sparks to life.

Now, fictional characters from all manner of universes are pouring into New York City. And they aren’t the only ones - from all across the globe, others are drawn to the Big Apple by something equally as inexplicable. While these individuals have only ever known this world and this universe, they are also elements of fiction in other times and places. And yet they leave homes and families, jobs and friends to come to New York and make a new home.

[info]thefiveboroughs is a panfandom game set against the backdrop of a modern-day New York City and focused on bringing multiple fandoms together to interact via monthly game-wide plot points. The game combines established “native” characters with refugee “fictional” characters for a multi-layered RPG experience. For more information, visit the FAQ page.

Miracle Country - a CLAMP-inspired panfandom RPG





The worlds aren’t just one.



You know how it goes – the way a pendulum swings – one action causes another reaction. The world you live in is not the only world that exists. Across the universe and its dimensions, there are countless other worlds – and now you and others have been brought to the place called Miracle Country.

You awaken in this new world in the hope a miracle will take place. Gifted with a jar that houses your good and bad intentions – you were brought here for a purpose, something only you can do.

The world survives on balance. No light without the dark, no good without the evil, no right without the wrong. The worlds across dimensions are falling out of balance, and you and the others brought here hold the key to their survival. Through your actions, through your choices, through your thoughts, you can control what becomes of you, the others, and the worlds you know and don’t know.

Everything here permeates magic and you are not an exception, drawn into the fate of all worlds. That magic grows the longer you are here – your good actions causing good rewards; your bad decisions causing strange happenings with the magic.

You can’t go home yet. Miracle Country is peaceful enough – but even the most beautiful of places isn’t without its shadows. Everything exists in balance, after all.


Miracle Country is a panfandom roleplaying game based on CLAMP’s works where characters are gifted with a jar of konpeito candy that represents their good and bad actions. Through their actions, relationships, choices, and thoughts, they affect the fate of the multiverse and prevent the worlds from falling apart around them.

It's the city of Manhattan, year 2145. An island of extremes, where the rich have it all and the unfortunates who aren't born into it have nothing. Where the highest heights are seen in the skyscrapers above the hovels on street level.

Welcome to the street. Everyone's struggling to make ends meet by any means necessary. A cureable disease keeps the population low. Crime is booming. Hackers, programmers, engineers and mechanics are royalty who can keep the automated authorities away from your operation while fixing your cybernetics. The subway is a wonderland of insanity and the deep underground tunnels are feared like a dark fairytale.

2145 is an original character sci-fi game set in future Manhattan. Apply today!

T
his Asylum is dedicated to all writers over the age of 30/ 35 years old who can't find someone to write with in the usual communities which seem to have been taken over by twenty something's or even younger people.

Please. Don't take offence in this. It's just that sometimes, some of us prefer to write with people closer to our ages and more experience in life.

There is also the matter of:

* Communication. Which I found sometimes it's not the same between younger people and older than 30.

* Fandoms. Some of which younger people have barely even heard of and we still would love to write.

* Actors & Actresses. Sure we watch TV. Movies and we read. We keep adding PBs and characters to our lists all the time!

But truth is. Sometimes we go to the usual communities and we have NO idea who the person in the icon is! (This doesn't makes us old. We just don't move in the places that perhaps you do. Like perhaps you guys want to play people from reality shows. You tubers. Fighters from the Mixed Martial Arts. Wrestlers. etc. And some of us are just not interested in that)

This is a place in where people who wants to PSL or find partners for GPSLs around their age. They can.

Needless to say. If you are under 30 years old you won't be accepted in the community. I'm sorry. I'm doing this with the hope to make a place in where my decade can find partners who will hopefully communicate and commit like we used to years ago.

* To join the community please fill in the short application and wait to be accepted.

FAQs

In an alternate present, humans live in uneasy peace with orcs, elves, and other intelligent species after the Nine Races had interacted in an almost constant state of war for thousands of years. Chicago, like any other modern metropolis, is a city wrought with unrest of every kind; equality of the species is only a recent idea adopted into law, but is still a far reaching reality for many. Poverty, speciesism, and political activism is all on the rise, and many believe the Peace is destined to come to a violent end. Whispered rumors of the return of Magic and those who can control it are a constant undercurrent of society, but those who know anything for sure rarely leave witnesses.

Disillusioned is an OC-centric RPG set in the universe of the Netflix movie Bright. It is a dark reality game involving fantasy creatures, humans, and the problems therein set in Chicago, 2018. There is an ongoing metaplot that drives the game, but most play is based on personal interactions and aspirations of the characters.
