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.

The Order

THE ORDER
Five hundred years ago, the island of Holuan was occupied by the Elentori Empire. The continent of Holuan was relatively small, but strategically important and abundant in resources. The fact that it was already home to many races and creatures was of no importance to the empire. The elves were driven into the forests, the dwarves underground, the dragons into the mountains. The empire fought tooth and nail for control of Holuan, determined to make it their latest jewel. A small colony of settlers became a bustling city. The emperor seated his younger brother in control of his latest province. He came to regret that choice.

Within a year brother waged war against brother. The emperor, a bloody and war-mongering individual, came to hear the whispers of his nobles. Rumors circulated that they favored deposing the tyrant in favor of the younger, fairer brother. The emperor vowed to crush his brother, but in the end Holuan proved too treacherous. The emperor chose reason over the sword, and proposed a peace treaty. He would allow Holuan to secede from the empire and set his brother on the throne of the new kingdom, but in exchange Holuan could never again take up arms against the empire. The bargain was struck, and the kingdom of Holuan was officially founded.

But some wondered how it could be so. The Empire had every possible advantage over the island. How could they be beaten as far back as a truce? The answer may surprise anyone not native to the kingdom. It was all thanks to one man and his order of followers.

The Order of Galchobhar runs strong today. Will you strike a bargain of your own?



The Order is an original high fantasy roleplay. The game is set in a fictional world, on an island continent known as Holuan. All characters are part of the mysterious Order of Galchobhar. In exchange for something they desperately needed, each and every one of them took the oath to follow Galchobhar unto their deaths. Are you ready to take the oath?

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.

Gallows Humour: Fable III



The Nightcrawler may have been defeated, but It and the Children had definitely left their mark on the united kingdoms. Ever since the war, further crises have befalled Albion. A coup d'etat at Ravenscar Keep over a month ago, the collapse of the economy despite Reaver's return to Reaver Industries, the Sophisticated Balverines in control of Mill Fields, and last but not least: the crisis at Bloodstone.

The port town of Bloodstone has recently been brought to the attention of Queen Rose. In spite of being isolated from the rest of the Kingdom due to Wraithmarsh, compared to the Bowerstone region... Bloodstone as a community has flourished. In this sea-rover haven, lawmen are as rare as hen's teeth. Organised and disorganised crime is the way of life in Bloodstone. Nearly everything is for sale, and work is easier and more profitable than anything that is offered in Bowerstone.

The Royal Family have no neighbours to rely on for help. Samarkand is too far away; the Court's troubled relationship with Aurora has yet to change for the better, and now trouble is brewing at Bloodstone.

Airialan - Original and Mature High Fantasy

Though it was opened several centuries ago to other cultures, the Elven city of Airialan has recently seen an influx in its foreign population. This rising number of outsiders is due to the troubles which currently assail the country side and nearby kingdoms surrounding the ancient city. Dragons seem to be the main issue in these events. Though they've always been known to be fierce and dangerous, their attacks are growing more frequent and more deadly as of late. Some say that these creatures, believed to be little more than beasts by most, are trying to cultivate a true war with the other species which share their lands. Others say that it may mark the end of an era, or even the end of the known world. Regardless of the intent, two things are clear - the Dragons have no interest in prisoners, nor do they wish for peace.

Unknown to most, there is an allegiance brewing between the 'winged beasts' and a species largely thought to be myth. The Dream Wraiths have always lived in hiding, masquerading as members of other races while feeding from their numbers. Having long ago been exiled due to their natures, these two species have come together to exact revenge on those they feel have wronged them. Those whispers of coming war? They are right. As this villainous pairing of cultures expand their plans, they have taken to including others who have been ousted from the accepted graces of the various societies. A number of human mages, those ostracized for 'dark arts', have been taken in to the fold of these fellow black sheep. Slowly, the seeds of vengeance are coming to fruition...

What will the dark days ahead bring for those who have found haven in the Elven city?

Airialan is an original high fantasy roleplay game which largely takes place in the confines of the Elven city of the same name. Though game play will include the coming war, there will also be strong emphasis on the daily lives of the residents and refugees in the city. This game will hold mature themes, so we ask that all writers be at least 18 years of age upon seeking membership. We are hoping for a thriving community filled with talented writers and unique, wonderful characters to interact with. What will Airialan hold for your creations?


Game opens on Feb 1st

** Notes an adoptable character.
Once, long ago, the creatures known collectively as 'the Fae' lived among the mortals known as humans. Often, they would shepherd the younger race in more positive directions - though at times they could cause discord due to their natural tendency towards dominance or mischief. After a span of time, however, humanity began to grow in to its own. Their cultures expanded in earnest away from the Fae and their teachings. As humanity swelled and built itself up, those of the Fae watched with growing tension. Thus, most of the Fae races came together to birth forth their own place of sanctuary - moving from the human world, and in to their own realm. From time to time, they would visit humanity to give help or to use it as a retreat from their own woes in the realm they'd created. To this day, there are portals which lay open between the realms. While the traffic back and forth is slow, it still does happen. What is it like when these worlds collide?

Welcome to Mirage, a modern fantasy/supernatural RPG which takes place in the fictional town of Greenbrier, New York and the Faerie Realm. While most of the citizens of Greenbrier are unaware of it, their town plays host to a very large and well used portal in to Faerie. Writers may house their characters either in the human side of the portal, or in Faerie itself - according to what is appropriate for their character. We are hoping for a thriving community filled with talented writers and unique, wonderful characters to interact with. So, what shall Mirage hold for your creations?

Note - If you need an invite code, please leave a note.

GAME BEGINS ON 6/5/13 OR WITH 10 CHARACTERS. Join today>>>>>

Remnants of the Earth - sci-fi fantasy goodness.


Welcome to the future, where magic combines with technology and possibilities are endless; where pop stars are the new gods and media the religion; where dragons and their riders dominate the Earth, cowboys roam the frontier, and pirates rule the skies...

Remnants of the Earth is an original sci-fi fantasy RPG with a broad, unique setting based around the damaged planet Earth (not to be confused with our Earth), the newly terraformed planet Edanith, and the broad, dangerous depths of outer space and its resident space stations.

You don't need any sci-fi knowledge to play here. We follow the Rule of Cool and take the "it works because it does" approach, and the technology isn't too far removed from our own--we've just got space ships and magic. If you're comfortable with a modern setting, you'd be comfortable here, too!
