a supernatural & horror rp

Phantoms takes place in Los Angeles, California. The glitz, the glamour, and the dark things that go "bump" in the night. These creatures have always lived beside us, in secret, in the shadows, until recently when vampires began to push for more publicity.

Repose [14 Apr 2018|12:27am]


Repose, Anywhere, USA.
Crawling along the inside of your skull is a voice that tells you something is out of the ordinary.

It's afternoon, but you can't see your shadow. It's night, but there's no sign of stars. The girl behind the counter at the corner store sells you paint and flashes a smile with fangs. Under the eaves of colonials with chipped siding, lupine shapes are roaming, circling. Did you hear that someone goes missing every twenty years on the same day? Or that someone saw the poetess who drowned herself a hundred years ago reciting verses to the lily pads yesterday?

You don't come to this little town for peace and quiet, or a good tan at the edge of the lake. You come because you're curious for a glimpse of the post-mundane. You come because of that restricted military facility and its high fences. You come hunting monsters. You come because you are the monster. You come because you don't fit in anywhere else. Adjacent to the big city bustle, the supernatural has made itself at home in Repose. Blend into the crowd of weird, and settle in for a season or two. There's a storm of strangeness, and Repose is drenched.

the bigger the crown, the heavier the burden

King Perseus II of the family Avery has led the Wizarding UK in relative peace and prosperity--until an extreme purist dictator began forcibly uniting the European magical nations for the purpose of world domination and muggle extinction. Unwilling to bend to another ruler, Perseus declared war against her and established a powerful magical military, commanding his troops to duel from air (brooms and winged creatures), land (foot duelists), and sea (magical ships).

As external violence plagues the nation, the kingdom also begins to fracture internally, with whispers of an underground rebel faction plotting to overthrow the king...

PRAESIDIO is a Harry Potter Militaristic Royalty AU set in the year 2001. Trio-era and Marauder-era characters are available for play.

Get ready to face your deepest, darkest, fear.

Deep in the San Gabriel hills, a portal has been opened. One which separates our world from unspeakably terrifying Hell dimensions. An ancient shape-shifting monster has escaped through it and is running amok in Los Angeles. Disguised as the friendly, yet unsettling, clown Smiley, it feeds off the supernatural population, leaving behind nothing but shattered bones and bits of chewed on flesh. Characters will have to work together in order to discover the way to defeat it, then work an enact a plan to do so.

smiley the clown is a group plot for the writers of phantoms@ij. please see this post for more information or drop box the mods.

Welcome to the Rift

The world is not as stable as you think. Ley lines, lines of magic energy, criss-cross the earth. Sometimes, where they intersect, form pockets, the walls between worlds get weaker. They put out siren calls that are nearly impossible to ignore. They open doors. Doors to other worlds. Other times. Other dimensions.

You have fallen through one of those doors.

Holds Rules Jobs Application Drop Box The Compass Foundation, founded by environmentalist and adventurer Walter Rutherford in the 1890s, has been a champion for nature and world culture since its conception. Rutherford's plan to bring sights and stories from around the world into the living rooms and onto the coffee tables of American households took shape in the form of Compass, a monthly magazine that was first published in 1907. In 1999 publication was reduced to a quarterly issue to focus on the expansion of the magazine's digital and multimedia presence.

Most people would say that they know the story of Peter Pan as a free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can never grow up, leader of the Lost Boys, and able to fly with just the right amount of pixie dust. While all of this is true, Pan’s residence on the island has been in place since the early 1900s, and Neverland has changed.

Physically, the inhabitants of the island are youthful in appearance, though unquestionably, no one would mistake them for children. The dark shadows of their eyes speak of the bloodshed they've seen, the loved ones they've lost. Blissfully unaware, Pan continues to stir the pot with his games, anxiously awaiting new opportunities to draw new alliances or fracture the ones he's grown bored of maintaining. Through constant use of the wormhole, tears have been open into new worlds, efficiently cultivating new species and walks of life throughout the island.

A game of Savages can't have a clear winner, but everyone is playing all the same. And when the island can change on the whim of a boy, it's important to know where you stand when the sun sets over Neverland.

X-Project - An X-Men/MCU RPG on Dreamwidth [27 Mar 2018|09:01pm]



Established in May 2003, X-Project is a journal-based RPG now on Dreamwidth. We use a combination of in-character journals and email/IM logs. There's a number of settings for a range of play, whatever your preference, and the slate has been wiped clean on all of our available and retired characters.

In January 2015, X-Project underwent a relaunch, which expanded the pool of usable concepts to all of the Marvel properties, regardless of who holds the licence. Using the X-Men franchise as a base, we are now pulling in elements from the MCU, Spider-Verse and other properties. We are also now on Dreamwidth, as of April 2017.

Check out the Wiki and the unplayed characters page to see what's available. Readers are highly encouraged! If you're looking for X-Men-based entertainment, X-Project welcomes you to read along and enjoy the ride!

A cyberpunk, futuristic game set in 2074. If you like Ghost in the Shell, Dark Angel, Blade Runner, and others take a look at New Dublin.

The year is 2074. The place is New Dublin. For the last three years the city has known peace. That on February 14th, 2074, that peace was broken. Now the tensions between the gangs have hit their breaking point, all bets are off.

But to know where things are, you have to know how it happened. New Dublin is a major harbor city made up of an amalgam of different cultures, races, traditions, tech. One thing it’s also made up of is gangs. Some say the city was established by gangs. For years gangs fought other gangs and people got in the crossfire. That was until the ceasefire and treaty signed in 2071. Five main gangs were given zones in the city to ‘rule’ over. Each had their own specialties and they knew better than to step on the others toes. As smaller gangs rose they were squashed and the peace lasted three years.

That is until Valentine’s Day. In the weeks leading up to the 14th, a new type of drug hit the street, the news named it ‘Kiss’ because those who took it were often kissed by death. The first death was a member of Camelot. Then the Sixth Street Rats. Eventually all the major gangs had at least one member drop except the Children of Darkness. The other gangs blamed the drug dealing gang and attacks started. Then on Valentine’s day at a party in the lower level of Warehouse 5, everyone was dosed with Kiss and died, 67 patrons. Having believed they’d been set up from the beginning the Children of Darkness started to fight back.

While the Treaty has been called off, daily life in New Dublin does need to continue. Territories are guarded even more closely but business goes on. Some deals between gangs still exist (ie. CoD escorts can still meet clients in The Wire territory), many have been called off. Neutral zones are on edge, but are sometimes the only place two gangs can do business.

In this new world of turmoil and war where do you stand? Are you a loyal warrior for your gang or a pawn just hoping to keep his head down and survive? Or are you an average citizen trying not to get caught up in the crossfire? Who will win the war? Can the treaty be saved? That’s up to you.

The town of Falling, Texas, has always been an unusual one. The Native Americans never settled anywhere near there, despite the overflow of gold, diamonds, and iron ore that can be mined there or the river that runs straight through town. It was abandoned until 1805, when George Falling landed there out of the river, and he found the mines. He set up a settlement, and over time, it began to grow.

Magic sunk into the town. Everything built there became something else. The library, for instance, was the world's first VR experience: read any book, and you'd be in that world for a time while you read.

And the people grew around the town. They found the things that the rest of the world didn't know about fascinating. They learned that their town was built halfway into a magic realm, and the magic from the other side was leaking through the buildings. The townsfolk too--it wasn't long until in 1876 half the children born in the town of Falling had some magical ability or other.

Fast forward to today: a town in Texas with no nearby outside influence, magic incarnate a part of everything. And then, something changed. People from fiction began to appear, one by one. Never in the same spot, but always in the same way: they were doing something in their own world, and then they turned around to do something, and then... then they were here, in Falling.

Welcome to Falling, Texas: the world's only magical hot-spot. Do stop by the head office and get yourself registered.

After Doctor Strange used the Eye of Agamotto to save Earth from being overtaken by the Dark Dimension, everything seemed back to normal. But the warnings against manipulating time are coming back to haunt him: "Temporal manipulations create branches in time and unstable dimensional openings." No one realized that time had already branched off. Not until dimensional openings cause people to suddenly and inexplicably arrive in New York City. Those that died before are now coming back to life. Threats of the past can take form again. The bill comes due. Always. And the lives of Earth's mightiest heroes are about to get a lot more complicated...

AVENGERS is a MCU game based in New York City that will explore the entire MCU universe. Destruction will happen. Future movies will be relevant. First time RPers welcome. Journal Codes available. 18+ only, Rated M for Mature.

On the surface, Point Pleasant, Maine certainly appears to be the kind of idyllic coastal town that every tourist would want to flock to during the warm summer months. It has that welcoming small town atmosphere that draws you in and makes you feel as though you belong. Locals will be sure to point out its gorgeous harbor, cozy little shops, the pollution free night skies, clear and full of stars... not to mention its disturbing fascinating history.

What the locals won't tell you is that for the past three hundred and twenty three years, Point Pleasant has unwittingly served as a nexus for the supernatural, the metaphysical, the evil and the damned. There are plenty who are dismissive of its history. After all, every town has a run of bad luck here and there. So what if Point Pleasant has an unusually high number of missing persons... strange and unexplainable deaths happen. That? That wasn't a monster you saw... monsters aren't real. Right?

Oh, everyone wants to talk about what's happening in their town, and yet no one really wants to talk about it. They're content with going on with their lives, getting through school, making another buck, getting through the day in one piece. But what they don't know is that ignoring the evil won't make it go away. Those who ignore the past are doomed to repeat it, isn't that what they say? Simply put, whatever has been drawing the darkness into their small town is only getting started, and nobody is safe.

The Shadow Before is an original, horror based game set in the fictional town of Point Pleasant, Maine. This game is inspired by various elements of horror and the supernatural, and will include both game wide plots as well as individual arcs. Warning: Mature and dark themes lie ahead.

Come try some stuff [28 Feb 2018|12:21pm]

A Multi-Generation HP-RPG
MY ERA RPG is a writing experiment spanning 110 years in the Harry Potter Universe. It's a place where players are encouraged to explore characters on a non-linear game timeline. Meaning, instead of having writers remorse because you totally got bogged down with RL and couldn't write that scene in time for a game event - you can write it whenever inspiration strikes! It also means you'll be able to explore your characters as young children, Hogwarts aged teens, flustered parents, and aging grandparents all in one space. You'll explore your characters in different milestones of their life with the same character connections, and the same game canon.

It's an odd concept, we know, but we think you can handle it. We're looking for mature and friendly players who enjoy building characters with family connections as well as writing and collaborating within various canon plots. For the most part we'll be taking the HP series and some of the Fantastic Beast canons and expanding on that as a writing community.

If any of this has peeked your interest take a look around! It's not as overwhelming as your making it out to be in your head. Promise
