Underhill

The land of the Fae is both home and refuge.

Home for the Elven Fae, Seelie and UnSeelie both, and to the creatures who dwell Underhill, the pixies and sluagh, nixen & phouka, to all the creatures of myth and legend.

Home also to humans, stolen away or come willingly with an Elvish lover, some practitioners of magic, many hiding their secrets.

Far from their place of birth, they weave a new life, a new story, beneath the boughs and branches of this Elven sanctuary. They move between the realms, hidden by the magic of the Mist and make their homes in the Fae lands safe from discovery.

Underhill is an OC-driven, small game/gpsl with a quick application and an emphasis on player creativity. World-building and character creation are open-ended. Played-bys are both optional and welcome.

WELCOME TO KINGWOOD, CALIFORNIA.


The sleepy, rural town of Kingwood, California may seem like any other small town, but things are not what they appear. For in this little town in Northern California, the people that live their day to day lives, year after year, are not what they seem.

Imbued with the memories of our most beloved characters out of storybooks, the citizens of Kingwood are living, breathing reincarnations of these legends. No one knows why they exist.

In fact, aside from dreams and memories that sometimes spark up, no one is even aware that anything is different about them or their town. However, they are different and it is the town's magic that sparks the character deep within. And with more and more people moving to Kingwood, the lines between real and make believe continue to become more and more...

Savage Gardens: A Neverland RP

Savage Garden: Into the Abyss

Unwanted, unloved -- these are apt descriptors for the boys and girls who come to live in Pan's Treehouse. Promised a better life and a family of sorts, their unknown role is as pawns in a centuries-long war between a band of unruly youths and a legion of undead pirates. Peter Pan is their prince in this war, and his Lost boys play the role of his generals, sworn to protect the imaginaries in their charge. In exchange for this protection - as well as everlasting life and the love they were once denied - they are expected to fulfill the terms of the blood oath: whenever a Lost needs or desires, an imaginary must allow him to feed. A small price to pay when darkness looms ahead. All must prepare for a war unlike any Neverland has seen, for the newly arisen captain of the pirate ship The Devil's Whore awaits... and he has a blood contract of his own to fulfill.

Bizarre City - Modern Fantasy/Supernatural

Creatures of fantasy now called 'supernaturals' interact every day with humans through the mystical protection of THE VEIL.

Some were once known as gods and goddesses, the inspiration for human fairy tales, and the foundation of human folklore. Most have adapted to a mundane life beyond THE VEIL masquerading as humans. Others have chosen to remain behind it outside of the prying reach of humanity out of fear.

Yet, not all the supernaturals are content to have humans deceived by this convenient 'gift'. There are those who would see it destroyed along with the AGE OF REASON. A global corporation called AEGIS exists to train individuals capable of piercing THE VEIL to handle these uprisings.

Welcome to San Francisco, CA. A very bizarre city setting established as the heart of this struggle in modern day for original fantasy, folklore, paranormal, and supernatural characters.

The community has been around since 2010.
Game is currently OPEN for applications from active players.

CHARACTER DIRECTORY | FAQ


"It starts in San Francisco, a very Bizarre City...

There once was a time when magic reigned supreme and legends could be made.

Before the Age of Reason, creatures of power and fantasy roamed freely, but then
The Veil fell, blinding humanity to the Wonder of the world.

Now, in modern times, beneath the streets of the cities, a new movement has risen. The mythological beings never left the world, they remained hidden by the fear of humanity.

While agents of The Veil seek to keep humanity in the dark, those who wish to bring a new Age of Wonder about seek to make themselves known to the human world."

Bizarre City, set in modern day San Francisco, is a high fantasy scenario. The idea is that beneath the mundane mortal world we live in; there are hidden pockets of magic from the old, mythological world.

Creatures of fantasy, what are now called supernaturals, exist in the city though they remain hidden to most human eyes: elves, fae/sidhe, maybe even goblins, they’re out there. It's a fantasy set in an urban, gritty environment.

These creatures can't go exposing themselves to humanity (though some try) without repercussions. When the Age of Reason began, what supernaturals dubbed as ‘The Veil’ blinded humanity to Wonder and Magic. In order for an elf, fae/sidhe, or any other fantastic creature to reveal himself to humans, it had to be through an act of will, and the possibility of driving the human mad came as a consequence.

Not everyone believes The Veil is bad. Some enjoy the power it gives them over humanity because it allows them to pull strings from off stage and out of sight. Humanity is a violent and selfish race, keeping them ignorant to magic may be the best way to control them.

Some want The Veil lifted again, but others don't. There is a constant war between the two opposing sides. It doesn't mean they will always fight if they meet out in the open, however. The Agents only interfere when a threat to the stability of The Veil presents itself.

With that said, you can play out nearly any plot imaginable. Yet, keep in mind a character can't walk through the streets flashing around their true magical self without someone taking notice and the consequences resulting in potential insanity for a passerby human, but may well even involve a character death!

We're looking for Original Characters only. The guidelines are for the most part pretty flexible and if you want to play a race not listed, just give us a shout on the journals or AIM Chyleiah or TheMelisande. What we're going for is a friendly modern-day fantasy RP that is fairly freeform and not over-modded, and where no open thread remains open. If you want to play with active, experienced RPers, we can give you that from the start.


Most Wanted:
Kaylee Moreau, Evil Magic User, Aegis Members, Haskel Coven Members, Fae Court Members.

Chimera Springs, Maryland, a small suburban town just outside of Washington DC. At first glance, it's just another quaint southern town. But stick around, and you'll notice something's a little different. Like the fact that lives of the townspeople bear a striking resemblance to your favorite stories and fairy tales...what tale will you tell?

Each character's story line is based on a classic fantasy story or fairy tale. How you interpret it is completely up to you. Everyone eventually ends up in Chimera Spring, be it as one of many generations, or a newcomer seeking refuge. They can all make a name for themselves in this town, be it as shop owners or a do-gooder in the community. Or they can choose to lay low and ignore that personal fate of theirs. The decision is yours.

PREMISE
Once upon a time, a build­ing was built on a vacant lot in Cam­bridge, Massa­chusetts. The area had been left alone for years, un­claimed by state or owner due to a technicality in legal work. The lot was rumored to be haunted, because of a ghastly ghost story which circled the area. In the late 2000's construction began, creating a building that was advertized as reinventing the apart­ment complex - Mar­chen Heights. A place to raise a family, be safe, and offer this opportunity to multiple classes. Thanks to the generosity of several unnamed benefactors, this was able to happen.

Marchen Heights is a fairy­tale and folk­lore based game with a set time frame. Char­ac­ters are based on figures from tales around the world and will be ensnared in the mysteries of Marchen. A smaller, fast-paced game, with an over­arching and game-wide plot, Mar­chen intends to be a unique roleplaying experience.

FOR RENT
ALADDIN has been shuffled through the foster care system more times than he can count. Along the way, he’s lived with a host of families – at one point living with Thumbelina and The Baba Yaga. Now that he’s of age, he’s happy to settle down in one place and figure himself out. He wants to find out who his family really is and maybe, make a little money in the process. The Djinn is willing to help with the former and Ali Baba, the latter. All he needs now is for Scheherazade to stop looking at him so oddly.

Marchen Heights


Once Upon A Time is such an innocuous phrase. No one says when that time is. There’s nothing to say that it wasn’t 1838. 1924. 2012.

Once Upon A Time, a building was built on a vacant lot in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The area had been left alone for years, unclaimed by state or owner due to a technicality in legal work. The lot was rumored to be haunted, because of a ghastly ghost story which circled the area. In the late 2000’s construction began, creating a building that was advertized as reinventing the apartment complex - Marchen Heights.

It appealed to the wealthy, looking for a new place to claim. For some, it was an escape from bitter exes or a past rife with scandal. It appealed to the poor, when a lottery offered spots to a select few. For them, it was a chance to flee an abusive home or try to make it in a grim world. It appealed to those who fell in between, not realizing they needed a change. Moving across the Charles River – or further – wasn’t always their intention. Marchen Heights and the people who rented out the apartments were impossible to resist.

What few realized though was that those given the chance to live in this complex were not there to seek out a fairytale life. That had already been granted to them. There’s reason to fear the man with rumors about past wives – to be kind to the maid with ashy feet. Each resident has a story even though they’re not aware of it yet.

Marchen Heights is a fairytale and folklore based game with a set time frame. Characters are based on figures from tales around the world and will be ensnared in the mysteries of Marchen. A smaller, fast-paced game, Marchen intends to be a unique roleplaying experience.
