Premise
2018 was the year of The Great Failing. The world over, monarchies fell. Governments, law enforcement and militaries and other authorities disbanded. Even the Council of Mages was abolished.

For a few thousand years, as chaos ensued and the world fell further and further into dystopia, a few hopeful people tried unsuccessfully to turn back the tide. Until one day in 3517, a young apprentice mage - hoping to safeguard the future of makind - led as many innocents as she could to a previously undiscovered underground cave and, a year later - in 3518 - attempted to open an outgoing portal to a parallel world, with the intention of bringing them all back when it was safe.

But, due to her youthful inexperience, the mage's spell went wrong and, instead of creating a portal, she created several one way time slips, bringing people from different realities and time periods into her world, and trapping the cave and everyone in it - including those who come through the time slips - inside a time bubble that keeps them in 3518, where they have remained and thrived, ageless, for the last century and a half in real time.

Upon arrival everyone is provided a cellphone, laptop, a small amount of money to get them started so they can find work, and keys to a home where they can set up residence. It is then left in their hands to decide how to live their lives in this new place.

Arcane City is a panfandom, original character friendly game, set on a parallel Earth, that welcomes all fandoms.

There's more to Wonderland than Alice could have ever imagined, and the fantastical creatures she met on her adventures through the land didn't just fade away when their parts in her story were over. Alice may have gone, but Wonderland is alive and well, just as it ever was.

The Queen of Hearts still rules her Monarchy with an iron fist and a penchant for decapitation; the people of the Looking-Glass Lands still live in the shadow of the Red and White Queens' games. The Hatter's still mad and the White Rabbit's still late; Humpty Dumpty is all patched up, and Tweedledum and Tweedledee never have quite had that battle.

The people of Wonderland have their own stories to live and they aren't waiting for an Alice to stumble through and set them in motion.

Welcome to Wonderland, where the impossible is possible, and the improbable is commonplace. Are you a Card in the royal guard? Perhaps you're a Living Flower with songs to sing and gossip to whisper. Or maybe you're a cat with an especially unforgettable grin...

No matter what you are, we assure you—you're entirely bonkers! But we'll tell you a secret... All the best people are.

JUNCTUS
About Junctus
This year, Crosshaven Community Centre opened its doors to magical and muggles members alike. Located in the heart of Godric's Hollow, this unassuming building plays host to community clubs both new and old. First and foremost, Crosshaven is about building a community. The committee welcomes new clubs, and anybody is able to get involved. Artists hosting still life classes cross paths with socialites attending amateur dramatics performances, while muggles are invited to join a community choir. Reusable portkeys allow people to visit any time the centre is open, to meet and mingle.

Opportunities abound, and the wizarding world is changing. Muggles are being offered an unprecedented chance to socialise with their magical counterparts and to learn about the world their magical relatives inhabit. In exchange, muggles can invite witches and wizards into their world, to experience all that 2018 technology has to offer.

Will integrating the muggle relatives who already know about magic bring the community closer together and ensure a peaceful future for the wizarding world? Or will the differences between those who have magic and those who don't be too great to overcome? While some witches and wizards are willing to share their experiences with magic, others hesitate, uncertain where this road will lead. When you invite muggles into the wizarding world, where do you draw the line?

Would you believe that all the gods that people have ever imagined are still with us today?


Across America, just beneath the world we see, exists another world. One full of gods and monsters, of immortals and saints and demons. They walk among us every day and although we don't know it, our every thought fuels their lives.

Nevermore is a well-established, long-running game set in the world of American Gods. This particular game has been kicking around IJ in one form or another for years - at the moment our player base is quite small and so we're looking for fresh blood to come join us.

In 1981 Peter Pettigrew kidnapped Harry Potter and brought him to Lord Voldemort. The resulting battle ended the Wizarding war. Harry Potter survived, as did his parents, but Voldemort was dead, Dumbledore was missing and presumed dead, and many Death Eaters and Order Members alike were in Azkaban.

Now, in 1999, the political tide has changed. Faced with the reality that exposure to Dementors is inhumane, the Ministry has closed Azkaban and granted all the prisoners a full pardon.

As the Wizarding world struggles to adjust, a new threat looms. People are being attacked by an unknown foe. Only this time, it isn't Muggleborns and their sympathizers who are in danger. It's purists.

Verso is a Harry Potter AU game that explores what happens when the tables are turned. Will the Order reform and defend known and suspected purists? Will the DMLE take the threat seriously? Will the former Death Eaters brush up on rusty skills to exact revenge? Will the threat be enough to bring Dumbledore out of hiding or is he really dead like the rumors claim?

***


Verso still has a wide variety of availale characters. In particular, we are looking for the formerly incarcerated, DMLE members, and purists. Extra plot is available for the formerly incarcerated if desired. Full lists of wanted characters as well as the current cast and holds can be found below.

There will be some driving plot, but the game will also be heavily character driven.

Seventh Gate: A First Age Silmarillion RP
Gondolin, FA 473: Nearly a year after the disastrous end of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, Gondolin is preparing for spring after a long winter. Gondolin welcomed all comers who limped home from the war, whether citizen or foreigner; but behind them, the gates were shut and the Dry River permanently blocked, sealing the city in isolation once more. The Gondolindrim, new and old, have made it through the winter—and while the city is still in mourning, things begin to seem brighter with the change of seasons.

Is it a false hope? How long can the city stay hidden? And can all the newcomers be trusted?


divider

Seventh Gate is a canon-divergent Silmarillion game, set in Gondolin during the aftermath of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. Turgon, now the High King after Fingon's death, has chosen to offer a safe haven for those fleeing after the battle, but everything is far from peaceful. Times are messy and confusing; resources and tempers are short; the fight against the Enemy seems hopeless.

But maybe, with new faces and new circumstances, things will end differently this time...

Gameplay begins May 8!

Do You Believe?

Rachel Berry is the girl who lived.

After the dark lord was defeated, the world thought it was safe. When Rachel Berry was attacked at age 15, she was sure that she was going to die. Sue Sylvester had been a devout follower of the dark lord and enraged by his defeat, she went after Rachel. It was a shock and a pleasant surprise to everyone when the girl survived.

Hunter Helmsley School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is one of many magical schools in the United States but is considered by most to be the best. Situated in the dense mountains of North Carolina, it's the perfect secluded place for a magical school and nearby town. The quaint little town of Helmsley's Landing supplies and supports the school and becomes a nice little escape for students on the weekend. A short ways away are Andrews and Marble, NC but those are populated by mostly Muggles and are too far to travel for students. Students get their magical education here in a quiet, idyllic setting.

Meanwhile, Sue Sylvester is out gathering followers. Her aim is simple: to rule the world. Rachel is now 16 and in her sixth year of school with five more to go. While everyone at Hunter Helmsley goes about their own business, Sue is out there gaining strength. Where does your character lie? On the side of good with Headmaster Figgins? Or on the side of evil with Sue Sylvester?

This game has now expanded to other fandoms and is a panfandom game. Only students may apply right now, after the game gets on the ground we will consider other characters.
Must be at least 17 to apply.

It was just like 100 years ago. No one knows exactly why or how this is happening. People, who claim to be from different worlds and have different lives, just suddenly started appearing. 100 years ago, the Titans appeared out of nowhere. No one remembers why or how they came to be. The Walls were constructed then to keep the Titans out and to protect humanity and we lived for nearly a century in peace.

Now, strange people, from strange worlds, are suddenly appearing. You find yourself in a world far different from your own or perhaps eerily similar, depending on the world from which you came. This is reality now. You live behind a city protected by three Walls: Maria, Rose and Sina. You are told not to go outside the Walls and that you cannot escape from this world, because this is all that is left of humanity.

Upon your arrival, you are greeted by a soldier. He seems a bit crazy, but he tells you that you have a choice to make now that you are here. You can choose to join the military or you can choose to live out your life here behind the walls. The technology of the world is not like modern technology. The most advanced vehicle is a horse-drawn wagon. Canons and guns exist, though they are limited in their resources. No television or movies are available. There are schools, bakeries, restaurants and other jobs available if you decide the normal life. Depending on where you are from, you are given a choice as to which wall you live within. If you choose to join the military, you are offered the option to attend cadet training.

You are informed that the top ten cadets of each class have the option to join the elite Military Police, those who work with the crown to keep the peace inside the walls. They live the furthest inside the city, thus the safest from the danger that exists outside the walls. This option is only open to the top ten cadets. The others have the choice of the Garrison Regiment, who will work to protect the citizens of the city, or the Scout Regiment, who set foot outside the Walls and work to take back lands already lost to our enemy. It's your choice what you do now that you are here.

Which option will you choose? What will be your fate?

Is there a way back to your world?

Holds are opened June 25. Game will open July 9! We welcome you to write with us.

Twisted Island

The playground of the forgotten goddess.



Toto, this doesn't quite seem like Kansas anymore. The island is far from the world you remember. This isn't your home, this isn't even Earth from as far as you can tell. But why? How did you get here? It seems the whims of an unknown and forgotten goddess has decided to make you her plaything, dragging you from your world and timeline and placing you on an inescapable island. Welcome to Twisted Island, where anything can happen and it usually does.

The island changes with the mood of the goddess. It’s her playground and you are one of the very many toys in it. But you’re not alone. There are others stuck on the island just like you and if you’re lucky the goddess didn't just steal you away, but friends and family you know as well. Best idea though? Make friends, powerful friends. Make sure there are people to watch your back because when the island starts to change, you're going to need every little bit of help you can get.

Will you survive, or will you give up and break under the pressure? Apply and become one of the many playthings that the goddess loves to toy with on Twisted Island. Only canon characters are allowed. The game will start May 10, 2015. Go check out the Wanted Characters or Holds page and get your application in!


Game will start on May 10th. APPLY TODAY.
