HP Clue - A Murder Mystery


HP Clue is a Murder Mystery game, modelled after murder mystery dinner party games. Players will play either one of the suspects, or one of the 19 people on the outside deeply connected to the suspects. They'll form allegiances, ask questions, and defend their own characters profusely. Each week, more clues will drop - and players will be able to sign up to 'discover' each new clue. In the middle of September, the final clue will drop, and the murderer - and his/her possible accomplice - will be revealed. How many secrets will have been revealed - and lives ruined - in the process is anyone's guess.

HP Clue is intended to be a limited short-time game, with game play lasting just two months. Focus is on character development and intense character interaction.


HOLDS CLOSE JULY 10TH; GAME BEGINS JULY 14TH!

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.

Max DiGiovanni. The one to take the throne. The one who was meant to rule them all.

Until he killed his teacher at twelve years old and was hidden away like a dirty secret. The rabid dog of the DiGiovannie family, Max was meant to be the heir, the one to lead the family into the second half of this new century. Those dreams are his sister's now. Arienne's got big plans and they involve more than just their family.

So what if he's overly depending on his sister? He can deal with the fact that she's bringing a Konovich into their fold and he'll lead the Romeo and Juliet through the underworld of mob politics in Eidolon City. He may no longer become the head of a new world order, but he'll be his sister's Hand. The one to strike down their enemies.

So you better stay on their good side.

Eidolon City: Where Stars Burn Bright.

It's the 1940s and metal pipes rain down on innocent memorial goers as the foundations of a mob war is being laid. Romeo and Juliet are planning on taking over with Hermes guiding the way. Scarlet O'Hara is cleaning up the ruins of her fallen family to open up the hottest nightspot on the town. Snow White is being blackmailed and Lillith is your city coroner.

War In Windy City: A Multi-Fandom/OC Urban Fantasy Game




This ain't Sweet Home Chicago.

It's an old, well-worn story, a common fear for societies throughout the ages: things that go bump in the night, monsters stalking the shadows and coming for the children while they sleep. They have different names, and different powers, but they are powerful, and no matter how hard science tries to abandon them, they survive in the imaginations and superstitions of many. At the turn of this new millennium, society's fascination with the supernatural seems to be at another peak. Tales of vampires and faeries, of little boys growing up to be wizards, litter the best seller lists and win the lion's share of the box office; diversions to ease the sting of tough social and economic times. But are they really just diversions, children's stories and fascinations?

It could never be that easy, could it?

The creatures of the night do exist, living right under the noses of 'mundane' folk. Surprisingly, their society is much like our own- filled with conflicts, politics, and unrest. And as these tensions rise, and more and more 'supes' seek shelter (or power) from their mundane neighbors, the line between their reality and that of normal humans begins to fray. The carefully-constructed veils of those living alongside the 'straights' begin to falter and fail. More and more, those with supernatural leanings begin to make themselves known- subtly, of course, but they won't go unnoticed for long. On top of it all, wanderers from strange and distant lands (realities, even) begin to show up in Chicago, lost and confused; it is, after all, a crossroads of the Worlds.

There are those determined to stem the tide, reaffirm the boundaries between the normal and paranormal; knowing humans, some gifted with magical abilities, work together to try and waylay the ancient powers from interfering in the lives of everyday America. So far, they've succeeded. The White Council of Wizards, and its Wardens, work to enforce the Seven Laws of Magic and keep the peace between the civilizations occupying, and traveling through, their territory. But now, with tensions on the rise, and the wanderers coming in seemingly unaware, can they hope to keep the peace?

War in the Windy City is a panfandom game set in Jim Butcher's Dresden Files universe. Knowledge of the series isn't required to play; any pivotal information will be made available by the mods.

You think you know London, its streets and alleys like the creases of your palm. You don't know all its secrets. In its depths are places to buy amulets and tarot readings, a talisman that permits the wearer to manipulate luck hangs alongside bottles of herbs and demon's blood. Books so ancient the pages are tissue-thin jostle against postcards of buses and telephone boxes. There are bars where the clientele don't just find the dim light flattering, but downright necessary, and the smell of brimstone lingers in the nostrils. There are corners and recesses where magic isn't trickery or sleight of hand, but blood and bone and flesh and you might -- you might -- catch sight of feathers pure as snow and light, if you know where to go. If you know how to see. There's a pitched battle being fought for this other London and your London besides -- one in which every human in existence is being counted in a gamble for souls, Heaven and Hell trying to tip the scales and grave-faced Librarians holding them steady. And all the time, people go about their lives with a little pinch of something extra in a London you'll never see.

~EIDOLON CITY~

Welcome to a world built from ideas and imagination

What do you want from a game?
Do you like things simple, or complex?
Would you prefer to deal on one level, or work towards a larger end?


Eidolon City is a game with a difference. It is a game which works on a number of levels, with elements which you can pick and choose.

Maybe for you, Eidolon City is just a city. A noir world of the 30s and 40s where rival mafias war for control, where the nights are dark and dangerous. Where bright lights make the rich and beautiful glitter and gleam, but cast dark shadows to hide the shady, the homeless, the forgotten dregs of society. There in Eidolon City, characters live out their lives never realising that maybe there is more, that they are not actually what they seem. And some of them may never, in fact, find out the truth.

Or maybe, for you, you want to know what's behind that curtain. Get involved with the origins of it all. Investigate the mysterious village, the theatre, the colleseum - all of which stand on the outskirts of the city, so very out of place, but seemingly accepted by all of the city inhabitants as a normal part of life. But yet, life there is different, odd things seem to happen if you go there. People change.

Because Eidolon City is nothing like what it seems. Underneath it all, it is a world constructed from dreams. Nothing is real, nothing is true. And some of the citizens of Eidolon City are actually its creators. And they have other lives. Because they are dreaming, dreaming of this world whilst in reality they lie in comas, throughout the world. And maybe, eventually, one day they will wake up - if they can find their way out. The escape routes are there, if they find them. If they can realise the truth.

If they even want to.

But what would they be leaving behind? Because this world is there, and they have lives. And not everyone can wake up - because some of the people there are not dreamers at all. Some of the people are figments of the collective dream and imagination, needed aspects of the world, taken from ideas and concepts, characters and mythology. There would be so much to leave behind.


So, what do you want from a game?
The simple, or the more complex - it works both ways.

TALES OF OBSIDIAN CITY

The Lieutenant

Half the force is owned by one family or another, most of the other half are owned by their own desires more than any kind of work ethic to do the damn job they've been sworn to do. A few try to keep their noses clean, but they don't last too long in this city. And me? I'm the asshole trying to rope in all the corruption and bribery and put the bastards back to work, protecting the city.

I've got a serial killer running around my city, killing whoever he pleases, bold enough to kill his own copycat in one of our holding cells. I've got someone tearing up the German district with racist graffiti and threats of violence, and I have the Petrovskii and Pavoni families at each other's throats and just gearing up for another war.

I'm getting too old for this shit.

~EIDOLON CITY~



WHAT'S YOUR REALITY?

It's a time where the mafia has taken hold of a city, where the local government is just as corrupt as the crime families that pay them off. There's the upper class that glitter with diamonds and luxury, and the lower class scrapes by for food and shelter. It's a place where there are the highest highs, and the lowest lows, and little in between.

Welcome to Eidolon City, a place where dreams come true and go to die in the same breath. A place where heroes and villains are constantly viying back and forth for power. Everyone needs those figures, those from the collective unconscious to commend or condemn.

We're looking for new blood in an established game with friendly, active players! There are many characters wanted, so check out our wanted character pages! We're specifically looking for more mafia members, some of the higher ups in the organizations and families. We'd also like seeing more hospital staff, reporters, business owners, and homeless.

Dark Obsidian: An Original Noir Game



One does not walk lightly into the Ruby District.

Not anymore.

Welcome to Obsidian City where the sun never shines, the crime never sleeps and love never dies.

A dark city in all sense of the word, Obsidian City is lucky to see one day of sunshine. If the city is dark at night, it isn't much better during the day. Too much smog and cloud blocks out the half decent light that struggles in between the skyscrapers. People make do though, possibly a little angrier than those who live under the undivided sun, a little more miserable, a little more hopeless. This is no city for the weak, and it certainly isn't a tourist hot-spot.


Obsidian City was never a shining city on the hill, it was built and born as if already crumbling down. Beneath the heavy, dark clouds that rarely seem to let up, lies a sprawling mecca of theft, corruption and greed. It really is no wonder that in such sunlight starved streets, there is little light to be had in the city’s inhabitants. Each jewel-named district hardly lives up to its name: The Ruby District, a self-sufficient community of its own, ruled by whores, who are the law. The rich are safely tucked away in The Onyx Towers, far from their poorer brethren, the utterly impoverished who languish in the Ivory Narrows.


Outside of The Ruby District, where the only laws are their laws, it is not the oft corrupt and always under funded police force that holds the most sway in the run of Obsidian City. No, the city is divided up and controlled by three major crime families, in close environs that seem to speak of a constant threat of war between two or more of the ruling families.

The Russians led by the Petrovskii Family, from their base of operations, Duma, an upscale nightclub known for its beautiful women and for the illegal deals made in dark back rooms, lord over the Diamond District. The Irish led by the O'Donnell Family, from the Irish pub that the first O'Donnell to come to America founded, long ago, loud and busy and full of their history, control the Emerald District. The Italians led by the Pavoni Family, from their Italian family restaurant in the center of the Topaz district, and come with as much flourish and ceremony in both their illegal deeds and their lifestyle.

The Families are not the only ones that the populace should fear, as there have been recent whispers that there is a serial killer preying upon the inhabitants of the city, lurking in the shadows and bringing death with them.

As if the population of Obsidian City didn't have enough on their plate, they now need to look over their shoulder at every step.

And so do you.
