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.

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...

Pastiche.

Pastiche
An incongruous combination of materials, forms, motifs, etc., taken from different sources; hodgepodge.
It all started with a story. Several really, each one evolving in their own little reality in time and space. Everything seemed to be perfectly normal in each reality... And then people began to vanish. A mysterious cult known only as the Abyssimus had somehow become established in multiple realities, picking their targets wisely in order to utilize their powers for the own ends. Their goal? To recreate existence in their own twisted image. Worlds began to collapse from the sheer power they were using with survivors straggling across the multiverse.

Their existence shrouded in darkness on multiple planes, the cult forced heroes from different realities to confront each other to keep them off their trail. Many fell to the ploys of the cult, spending more time battling each other than looking for the real source of the problem. But there was still hope. A mysterious group of benefactors with untold power stepped in to give aid to those trying to save the multiverse.

...They all screwed up. Bad.

The damage was done and the would be saviors saved who they could, merging the remains of the multiverse graveyard to house everyone they could in a singular and mostly stable reality. Unfortunately, Abyssimus, which survived the destruction, quickly did the same in the hopes of causing enough chaos to allow them time to try again with what remained.

A new reality was born, one with heroes, demons, aliens, and more. Histories are similar, yet different... and in the dark corners where no one dare venture, Abyssimus still lurks.
