Twist & Turns
"The things that make us different, those are our superpowers"
PREMISE
Fifty years have passed since the first Supers appeared in the world and the world has changed. Any person shown to have superpowers will be taken from their family and put into the care of their local authority and branch of Supers Control Authority. This is where they will be monitored until they are the age of 21 at which point they will be relocated to The Dome. Inside The Dome they will under close observation and inspection partake in a range of activities that will determine if they are what would be deemed a “hero” or a “villain”. The outcome of these findings will be used to dictate next steps and action needed.

Two Minutes to Midnight
A comic-inspired real-world AU
PREMISE
On the 25th of January, 2018, the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists set the Doomsday Clock to two minutes to midnight. While typically focusing on nuclear risk, climate change, and emerging technologies, the Bulletin was forced to take growing metahuman policies into consideration which culminated in a response that the world is heading even more rapidly toward their own man-made doomsday.

This game expands on the idea of this imminent danger by placing superhuman characters in a world where the tide of metahuman panic is at an all-time high.

There are no Avengers or Justice League to save us. Only the everyday citizens who choose to stand up and fight against tick-tock of the doomsday clock.

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.

Legacy


After discovering the means for viable space flight humans began to leave the Earth. Whether it was to seek personal fulfillment or fortune many joined the intergalactic stage. It was soon apparent that they were not alone.

In the decades that followed, about 50 years, humanity started to make its mark as other species made theirs. For some this meant great achievements in science, efforts to make further human society and legitimate business enterprises. For others it meant finding new and interesting places and people to offer less salubrious services to.

Once it was an intergalactic shipping and trading freighter, but now the Phoenix is a waystation in orbit around a desolate planet on the edge of a lawless zone. Over the generations it has changed hands many times and has been added to and modified as needed to suit the needs of those living within its walls. The size of a city, it holds numerous docking bays, living areas, markets, clubs and more. It has become a place where anyone can get damn near anything. Humans are here too now. For some it is a stop on the way to somewhere else or a place where they can get what they need. Others have insinuated themselves in the cutthroat world as surely as they did on earth.

Legacy is an 18+, OC-only, sci-fi themed role-playing community. We're very excited to meet all of you writers who are ready to create and explore new peoples and worlds!

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.

NEW HAVEN
the return to Willowbrook

Long after being shut down for its cruel experiments, the mutant secret has come to light. During a time of turmoil and transition, the newly outed mutants are looking for a safe haven. A facility built to house such people has long since been abandoned, but the space and technology are greatly needed once more, though this time to aid rather than to harm. With the help of both government and private funds, Willowbrook's doors open once more, though this time with a mutant at the helm. Renamed New Haven, the site is a work in progress, but offers mutants in need a safe place during the coming days while the world decides what to do with the knowledge that extraordinary people live among them.

>FRONTLINES
Ten years ago, a team of archaeologists and scientists unearthed an ancient artifact from beneath the cradle of civilization. It unlocked the superhuman potential in a small percentage of the human population, and these new beings were called atavists. The US government founded Project: Ascension to study, understand, and train these atavists in secret. But not all agreed with their methods. A schism shattered the foundation of the Project, and those rebels formed the Movement for Atavist Liberation, bent on subverting the government and freeing atavists from military control.

Choose a side. Build a future. Will you find your power?

[info]insane_games

lost codices
an auish dragon age rp

A blight upon the land. Darkspawn have risen and the archdemon brings plague and death wherever he lands.

The year is 3:24 Towers. For fourteen years, the third Blight has ravaged Thedas while Tevinter and Orlais war with each other. They have provided aid to Nevarra, a country desperately fighting to keep the Blight from consuming them. But their help comes with a price, and it seems as though Nevarra is doomed to fall, either to the Blight or to the ambitions of their more powerful neighbors.
LOST CODICES is an original character roleplaying game set in the Dragon Age universe during the third Blight in the port city of Cumberland. No knowledge of the Dragon Age universe is needed. We offer your typical slice of life and an over-arching plot, complete with a healthy dose of politics and saving the world from the archdemon Toth. Come and shape the future of Nevarra or become the hero that stops the Blight.

We're a small, moderately active community. We'd love to add some new players! This game does require at least one log a month for AC.

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.

New Dublin


[info]newdublinmods
[info]insane_games



New Dublin is a harbor city that has been plagued by gang war for much of the past ten years. Five main groups rose up, each started for different reasons and each have evolved from a few people into much larger entities which control much of the cities nightlife.

Many groups grow fast and die out equally as fast, but the smart ones stick around longer. Each gang has different reasons for being; some for profit, some for security, while others act as guardians for their territory there are some who act as thieves. The tensions between the gangs are harsh and one member caught in another’s territory without a pass is met with severe punishment.

There are smaller gangs but the main five control the greater area of the city. These five came together three years back and created something of a treaty. They all agreed that the wars had come to the loss of to many lives and thus some sort of peace was needed.

In a city where an unsteady treaty is the only thing that binds the gangs in peace, who do you pledge loyalty to? Or are you one of the brave who stands the middle line? Where tech is big, crime is high and brotherhood is more important than blood, where do you call home in New Dublin?


The game is currently in PREJOIN. Looking to open in May. (That or if we get 5 players or 10 characters)
