THE SHADOW BEFORE
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.

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.

Paper House — a Forbidden Game rpg


[info]shadowmen
[info]insane_games
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. Then everything changes and you're playing the game for real. You can't leave until you face your deepest, darkest fear. Something you haven't told anyone. 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.

No one was ready for it when the fanatic occultist group Ordo Templi Orientis revealed the truth about vampires to the world five years ago. At first, the public didn't believe and centuries-long rivals, the Templar Knights, did their best to keep the supernatural world a secret. The Templars, despising this new faction and the image they portrayed to the public, set out to stop the extremist group at all costs and protect the secrets kept by the supernatural. However, the extremists of Ordo were all to eager to show the world these supernatural monsters. Worldwide, vampires were forced to register with their governments or risk being hunted, legally.

OPEN SINCE OCT. 2015
PLEASE LOOK AT THE WANTED LINES FOR IDEAS.

St. Margaret's Academy - A Supernatural High School RPG


[info]saintlymods
[info]insane_games
St. Margaret's Academy
not your average boarding school
Rule #1 - Keep your fangs and claws to yourself: no snacking on any of the student body.
Rule #2 - No magic in the hallways.
Rule #3 - A full moon is no excuse for not having made your homework.

The '16 - '17 academic year is well underway and students are looking forward to the year's first holiday tradition. Hallowe'en is a big deal at this school. According to the Christian learnings, it's when the gates of Hell swing open and the restless spirits haunt the Earth. It's half-true. Hallowe'en is when the restless spirits that haven't yet passed on come out of their resting places and hunt the earth. Problem is, the Academy has lots of those, and not all of them have been buried in the graveyard. On Hallowe'en, all of them will come out. While they're not evil, these spirits, ghosts and phantoms can be mischievous and loud, which makes falling asleep on Halloween practically impossible. Will your costume fool the spirits? Apply now and join in the festivities!
Open since 2013, St. Margaret's Academy is now looking for more great RPers and fresh faces to add to the fun. We're a fun and laid back group. Enrol your progeny today!

New OC supernatural game, open now: City of Saints


[info]cityofsaints
[info]insane_games
The Archangel Michael has been under a lot of pressure for...well, his entire existence. Still, it was a hell of a shock when he walked off the job, choosing to join Lucifer's side instead. With his ancient nemesis out of commission, Lucifer has been picking off his favourite island holiday spots, one by one: he started with Ibiza, swarming the late-night party crowds with demons. City after city went down, with armies of demons possessing the locals. Lucifer's not slowing down. Who's gonna stop him?

Well, it's not going to be God. The Almighty isn't taking calls.

Montreal is the next city on Lucifer's list. Home to a 17th-century vampire coven, a wealthy and powerful nephilim family, and a secret society of exorcists, the City of Saints has a dark underbelly, but it's here that the remaining archangels are taking a stand.

Join the forces of good, or revel in the chaos. This could get messy.

Open now!

After two failed attempts to complete a study, the Management are on their last strike with the higher ups. This time, they're going to finish. This time, things are going to be a little different. This time, they'll get it right.

You've been chosen to participate in a social experiment orchestrated by The Research Department. When you awaken in the woods, you might feel a little woozy and disoriented, but you'll find yourself free of injury (unless you count that little point of injection on the side of your neck). You're in the woods and you're in whatever clothes you were last wearing. Beside you is a small box with a little silver plating on which there is a label that reads:

REMEDIUM




The scent of earth fills your lungs and all you can hear is a dull ringing that pierces your already throbbing head. You’re in pain, and you feel weary as if you haven’t slept in days. When you open your eyes you find yourself on the ground surrounded by overgrown greenery and trees shading you from the beating sun overhead.

Once you sit up, you notice a small journal with a pen set neatly before you, as if placed there by whatever or whoever dropped you in the middle of these strange woods. Ahead, you see a massive stone wall, one that stretches far above your head and a mile each way, and past it through colossal stone doors you see people and what looks like a housing development.

You open the journal and it’s completely empty, save for a message written on the inside of the cover, just for you:

We greatly appreciate your assistance in helping us find the Cure. The pain in your head will subside soon. We know you may be frightened, perhaps angry, but know that your sacrifice may save the lives of billions soon enough.

You are welcome to explore your new home. We ask that you stay within your commune at night before the doors close. Wandering subjects are difficult to observe and will be terminated from the study.

We look forward to monitoring your progress.

Remedium Clinical Specialists.

You might want to get in there and figure out what’s going on; you don’t know what happens when those doors decide to close.



Redemium is a survival panfandom RPG with a concentration on character and relationship development focused through both journal entry-style posts and written logs as well as via mod-initiated game-wide plots.
