"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.
