Zenith

When your eyes open you're staring up at an unfamiliar ceiling. The world is hazy and you feel as though you’ve been in this place a long time. Slowly, awareness filters in. You’re lying in a strange bed, an IV in your arm. You wear a hospital gown and a bracelet identifying you as a subject number.

Not patient.
Subject. This is all wrong.

You sit up and take in your surroundings. You are in a room tailored to your tastes. With a jolt of alarm, you realize a camera points at you from the ceiling. You are being watched. On the floor near the bed sits a cardboard box. Slowly you make your way to it and find whatever clothing you were wearing last.

You remember now. You’d been going about your daily life when someone approached you. You had a moment’s warning that you were in danger, and then—nothing. You opened your eyes and found yourself staring up at fluorescent lights. Something vaguely like a hospital room. The feel of restraints upon your wrists. Those restraints are gone now. There's nothing else for it: you must open the door.


Mount Zenith is an original psychological horror game centering around the abduction of a seemingly random group of people, and the experiments they are subjected to. Every day the characters will be tested against strange scenarios and harsh stimuli. They will have no choice but to live and work with one another in the strange town they have been placed in. Play by the rules and be rewarded. Refuse, and be punished. They have no contact with their captors, but one thing is apparent: escape is impossible.

Through the course of gameplay the characters will come to realize their selection for this involuntary experiment isn’t random at all. Each and every one of them has something in common - a secret that’s been kept from them their whole lives...

Hall of Doors


There's more to Wonderland than Alice could have ever imagined, and the fantastical creatures she met on her adventures through the land didn't just fade away when their parts in her story were over. Alice may have gone, but Wonderland is alive and well, just as it ever was.

The Queen of Hearts still rules her Monarchy with an iron fist and a penchant for decapitation; the people of the Looking-Glass Lands still live in the shadow of the Red and White Queens' games. The Hatter's still mad and the White Rabbit's still late; Humpty Dumpty is all patched up, and Tweedledum and Tweedledee never have quite had that battle.

The people of Wonderland have their own stories to live and they aren't waiting for an Alice to stumble through and set them in motion.

Welcome to Wonderland, where the impossible is possible, and the improbable is commonplace. Are you a Card in the royal guard? Perhaps you're a Living Flower with songs to sing and gossip to whisper. Or maybe you're a cat with an especially unforgettable grin...

No matter what you are, we assure you—you're entirely bonkers! But we'll tell you a secret... All the best people are.

The Meta Game

THE META GAME
NAVIGATE the meta game
scenes

ooc
There is a theory. A theory which states that all fiction has a basis in fact. That no idea is entirely original, but simply a divine glimpse into an alternate reality. A secret world, where legends live and breathe.

This theory is not just a simple idea, but fact. And only a small percentage of the human population will ever glimpse beyond the veil. The veil between our world as we know it, a façade that has been so carefully constructed to keep humans safe, and the true world. The Metahumans see the world as it truly is. And they are its guardians.


The Meta Game is an original superpower game, in which all characters have undergone an awakening, becoming metahuman. In this universe, there is a secret organization - referred to only has the Agency - that keeps tabs on all metahumans and preternatural activity. In this world, everything is true, and nothing is impossible.

Upon an individual's awakening, they are recruited into the Agency and offered a deal. Have your newfound powers and memory wiped, and safely return to your old life unchanged - or, embrace evolution and join the Agency. As a member of the Agency, your entire world opens up. The secrets of the world's legends are at your fingertips; an endless supply of knowledge for you to study to your heart's content. Money, more money than you have ever dreamed of. Luxury, travel, and of course, power. You are given a shortcut to devoting your life to whatever it is you've always dreamed of. But in exchange, you agree to become a guardian, and fight to protect the world from things the average human is incapable of facing.

When zombies rise in a Louisiana bog, it's you fighting on the frontlines. When aliens harass cattle in the English countryside, you're on clean-up duty. Some poor archaeologist has triggered the wrath of an Egyptian mummy's curse? It is your duty to send him back to the afterlife where he belongs. You will face creatures of every mythology, and stand triumphant. Thanks to you, the human world will never know how close they come to a new apocalypse each and every day.

It can be a thankless job, but hey. It's a living. And at least you don't pay taxes anymore.

GAME STARTS THURSDAY.

Goddess' Island: Multi Fandom Game

Goddess' Island

The last hope for the Goddess.



Toto, this doesn't quite seem like Kansas anymore. The island is far from the world you remember. This isn't your home, this isn't even Earth from as far as you can tell. But why? How did you get here? It seems the whims of an unknown and forgotten goddess has decided that she needed your help, dragging you from your world and timeline and placing you on an island that is about to die. Welcome to Goddess’ Island, where the world is ending and you are its savior.

The island is clouded mostly in darkness but there is a spot, a beautiful valley, that is still flourishing. That is where you find yourself when you wake up. But you’re not alone. There are others stuck on the island just like you and if you’re lucky the goddess didn't just steal you away, but friends and family you know as well. Let's also not forget the creature that you bond for life with. Best idea though? Make friends, powerful friends. Make sure there are people to watch your back because when the God attacks, you're going to need every little bit of help you can get.

Will you survive, or will you give up and break under the pressure? Apply and become one of the saviors that the Goddess is depending to keep her alive. Canon and original characters are welcomed. The game starts on September 16th, 2017. Go check out the Wanted Characters or Holds page and get your application in!

Islington School

Could you thrive at a school like this?

We live in a world where people are either Mundane, or Gifted - and the Gifted have the ability to control an element, even if only in a small way. It's not a secret. It's not even all that taboo. It's something of a fact of life. The great thing about schools like Islington, is that there's no real emphasis on how different people are. If you're Gifted, you will be taught how to control and use your Gift here, but you won't be made to feel like an outsider, or a freak, like can happen in other places. If you're Mundane, you'll be given just as many opportunities as the Gifted students - they might be different, but they will be just as numerous - and you won't be made to feel less-than.

All magic aside, no matter where your talents and skills lie, there is a place for you here at Islington School.

Islington School has been completely revamped and retooled! It is a het and fem/slash friendly, original character roleplaying game on InsaneJournal, set in a boarding school environment with a supernatural twist. This game will focus on character development, especially on the way the Gifted are perceived by the Mundane and vice versa, but there will also be non-supernatural issues based in and around boarding school life, as well as some larger plot. We are looking for writers who are 18+ and who enjoy seeing their characters grow as people!

Opened now!

When Darkness Falls: A Multi-City Supernatural RPG



WE ARE A MULTI-CITY GAME FEATURING NEW ORLEANS AND BOSTON! WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING HOLDS AND APPLICATIONS FOR BOTH LOCATIONS!

When Darkness Falls is a multi-location original character role-playing game set in the iconic ciies of New Orleans, Louisiana and Boston, Massachusetts. The story began in November 2012 when supernatural beings were still hidden from the public, living alongside unsuspecting humans who were never the wiser. Werewolves, vampires, shape-shifters, gifted humans, and others struggled to keep their secrets, while still maintaining relatively "normal" lives.

In 2014 a group of humans, bent on exposing the supernaturals for what they are, began cropping up in cities across the globe including New Orleans and Boston. Their cause grew quickly, and despite resistance the supernatural community was exposed to the world in grand fashion.

In New Orleans the initial reaction was to condemn supernaturals, to lock them away and to keep their kind away from humans. This proved futile, however, as the supernaturals banded together and fought back. The war between the human and supernatural worlds did not last long, however, before the government began to intervene.

In Boston the news of the supernatural world was swallowed with a bit more ease, though unrest was soon apparent. While no fighting broke out there was a push to separate supernaturals from human beings for safety reasons, a movement that was quickly squelched out when the government stepped in to run the show.

Presently the world is still making a shift toward a new era, where supernaturals and humans can co-exist together in a world no longer segregated by lack of knowledge. There are those who still oppose this movement, though laws and regulations are now in place to protect the interests of all parties. While humans must learn to cope with the new world order, supernaturals must learn to adjust to no longer lurking in the shadows; darkness is no longer their ally.

Opened in November of 2012 and currently seeking new, active players for both New Orleans and our new city: Boston!

Marauders!: An 80s AU




Marauders! is an AU 80s game based upon three major 'fixes' to canon. First, Peter died rather than give up the Potters, and despite Voldemort ripping the secret from his mind that fateful Halloween night had a rather different outcome. James and Lily survived, and Voldemort is presumed dead. Harry's still got his scar, but Dumbledore says not to worry about it. Second, Regulus got the ring to Dumbledore and Dumbledore was able to destroy it without cursing himself. Regulus was presumed dead as well, but not everything is as it seems. Third, the Lestranges were defeated before they could drive the Longbottoms insane, and are currently languishing in Azkaban while the Longbottoms (among others) are alive and mostly well.



Current game plots: A dark-wizard cult has been kidnapping and killing people in the name of power. An unlikely source comes forward with information on how to stop them. Oh, and Harry Potter's pirate-themed birthday is a go.

Wanted: Ted Tonks, Fabian Prewett, Molly & Arthur Weasley, Auror Proudfoot, Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs, Parents of Trio-era characters.

PHOENIX BAY


It is the year 2017 and the Torchwood team has done its best managing the rift with only a three-man team, (Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Martha Jones) for the last 12 years, that is until things started to change. While it was always expected for people and other beings to slip through the rift here and there, the numbers seemed to be on the rise. The thing that worried the team the most was that not only humans were coming through. The team was finding that beings such as vampires, werewolves, and so many other kinds were arriving and unable to register who was safe and who wasn’t led to Jack Harkness to consult with other experts: the Watchers Council, led by Rupert Giles, and the Cullens, led by Carlisle Cullen and his family.

The Watchers Council had moved to Wales after the fall of Sunnydale. They had to find a new place to form their base of operations once the First Evil was defeated, and while Giles would have preferred to return to London, it became obvious that Cardiff was where they needed to set up. Two years after Giles made his new home Cardiff, he reluctantly agreed to work with Angel and his team as well, once he became aware of their actions to bring down Wolfram and Hart. While Giles had seen a rise in vampire and other demon activity, he wasn’t aware how bad it had become until he was approached by Jack Harkness. Again, Giles reluctantly agreed to work with the Torchwood team, if only to maintain the safety of the citizens of Cardiff.

The Cullens were an odd choice for Jack to choose, but he had become aware of their presence in Cardiff only after they defeated the Volturi in Italy. The battle between the two began after the Cullens were falsely accused of creating an immortal child. That was only the tipping point in the beginning of the end for the Volturi. The Cullens always knew that there had to be laws in order to maintain the secrecy of their kind, but the rule of the Volturi always seemed to be too much. The other issue of their rule was Aro and his penchant for “collecting” those with special abilities that he desired to be in control of. The Cullens knew that none would be safe if Aro remained in control so that left them no choice but to stop the Volturi as a whole. The Cullens and their many friends prepared for the battle, and while they nearly lost everything as they fought, however they managed to pull through defeating the Volturi in whole While Carlisle didn’t relish in the thought of having to kill others of their kind, but he knew there was no other way.


The three groups now work together to keep the city of Cardiff and the rest of the world safe from whatever makes it through the rift. Those who have been deemed safe by The three groups can find jobs and homes within the city of Cardiff, or they can attend or teach at the local university, Phoenix Bay University. Each person is given a laptop and money to get started, a debit card with £2000.

Veiled World - Actively recruiting Vampires, Dragons & Hunters

Veiled World - Open since January 2016


The supernatural is all around us, vampires and werewolves live next door to you and to be honest, your senator's likely a vampire, incubi and merfolk serve you coffee in your favourite coffee shop . That alternative looking woman that runs the herbal shop down the road? She's a sixth generation witch. The bank manager that sort of weirded you out but looked excited when you handed over your family jewels to put in a safety deposit box? Yeah... good luck getting that back: you just handed grandma's gold to a dragon.

The Supernatural Government kept peace for years, brokering a tentative peace between all of the supernatural races and making sure that they stayed out of the light, as it were, out of sight. Ten years ago, a number of the elected officials were executed, assassinated by an unknown party. The peace that had been on a knife's edge was shattered and now the supernatural world is at war within itself. It's an underground war, fought with polite words and veiled threats, but a war all the same.

With a recent surge in the death rate in the city, and an increased reporting of ghostly sightings all over the state there's more going on than meets the eye. Between the possessions and the mass- induced hallucinations that are plaguing human kind and sudden increased tensions between the werewolves and vampires, with malcontents on both sides stirring the pot to cause whatever trouble they can, maybe it's time to start thinking that what was initially thought to just be a war within the supernatural world isn't as simple as was first thought... Perhaps there's a bigger threat out there that they need to face.

Welcome to the war.
