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.

Paper House — a Forbidden Game rpg

PAPER HOUSE
You're at a birthday party for your friend. She brought a game, but she can't remember where it came from. You and the others set the board and roll the die. Then everything changes and you're playing the game for real. You can't leave until you face your deepest, darkest fear. Something you haven't told anyone. Something that makes your blood run cold and your muscles tense. This a game for the Shadow Men, but not for you. The only way to win is to overcome your nightmare and make it to the top of the dollhouse. You're not alone but that's not a guarantee for survival. The clock is ticking. You only have until sunrise to finish.
Paper House is a limited-run original character role playing game based on The Forbidden Game trilogy by L. J. Smith. The game will run over the course of 24 weeks. It is a writing-heavy survival game. The game will commence once we have a minimum of 6 characters. Applications will close 4 weeks after.

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.

[info]watchersplease

Watchers, Please

In the beginning, there was only the Creator. And She created the world; its lands and seas, peoples and beasts. She created the Keeper, to rule over the dead. She gave the world to her people, whom She loved dearly, to do with what they would. The people multiplied, forming their cultures and societies, and were faithful to the Creator. And when there were many, the Creator made the Watchers: lesser deities to watch her people and report. You see, there are simply too many people for the Creator to keep track of, too many prayers to answer. The Watchers watch, and tell Her what her creations need.

But they speak in His ear, too.

She gave the Watchers free will, and perhaps that was Her greatest mistake. Not every Watcher is good. Not every prayer is answered by the Creator. The Keeper speaks to the Watchers, too, and He does not want for good in the realm of the living. He wants only to rule all, with the death of all things.

You, the player, are a Watcher, and the choice is up to you. Will you do good or evil? Which prayers will you answer? Which side are you on?

Watchers, Please is an original high-fantasy game in a medieval setting where the players themselves are the gods. You are a Watcher. Characters pray, and players submit requests. Every week, players will vote on which prayers and requests will be answered – and by whom, and how. How do you want to rule? Only one thing is certain: characters should be careful with what they wish for.

Havenwood

HAVENWOOD, NY
PREMISE / RULES / SPECIES / TAKEN / WANTED / APP / DROPBOX

Havenwood, NY boasts of a long and varied history since its founding in 1661, and takes pride in the numerous agricultural and industrial endeavors it provides. However, the normal citizens of Havenwood don't really know just how varied their towns history actually is. The strange occurrences have been rationalized so much that it's simply become a charming and interesting aspect of life in Havenwood. Life after Virgil Hughes grisly revenge has returned to normal (or what counts as normal), but the warlock isn't finished with the town. As he bides his time in the shadows, a new threat from far eastern Russia makes it way to Havenwood...

If you enjoy writing in urban fantasy, slice-of-life settings, and like both character driven plots, we encourage you to check us out. The Mods are always flexible, so don't hesitate to drop them your ideas, and the community is friendly and always on the lookout for new members.

[info]thehereafter

The Hereafter

In the winter of 2015/16, the US experienced an increased rate of missing persons, murder, and violent crime. An alarming number of these cases remain unsolved. It all becomes additional political fodder, written off by many as a sign of the darkening times. But a small percentage of the population knows better.

They are secret keepers. They live in the shadows, their true selves hidden from the world. They understand the things that go bump in the night. Because they're one of them. Vampires. Werewolves. Witches. And everything in between, all the creatures of myth that aren't supposed to exist.

In the spring of 2016, as the snows melt away in Chicago, a small group of supernaturals decide it's time to take matters into their own hands. One day, the supernatural residents of the windy city begin receiving mysterious invitations. A club in the middle of nowhere, some one stoplight town no one's ever heard of. Inside those walls you can find just about anything, or anyone; from the pillars of society to the lowliest of criminals, you'll find them there.

In the Hereafter.

 
The Hereafter is a modern day urban fantasy game for original characters, set in Chicago, IL. We offer both a supernatural slice of life environment, along with an over-arching plot, open to all players and characters to participate in.

In the world of the Hereafter, an unspoken rule has been broken. Someone isn't cleaning up after themselves, and is risking the worst sort of exposure to the underground supernatural world. A vampire house, a dark coven, and a werewolf pack have entered into an unholy alliance, united by the belief that they are superior to humanity. They are gods on earth, humans merely peasants beneath their feet. It will be up to the supernatural denizens of Chicago to decide: oppose them, or join their ranks?
THE HEREAFTER.
