Welcome to RPG-Connect! This community was designed as the middle ground for rpg advertising communities on insanejournal. When I was browsing IJ, I came across two types of ad communities: the over-restricted and the under-restricted. To me, most of the communities had lost it's personal touch with the roleplaying world. Here at RPG-Connect, our goal is to help quality players and games find one another. Are you looking for a home to place your character or find a person to fill your roleplaying needs? Do you want your game ad to reach the right kind of people? Look no further because you'll find that here.

A fine institution for young minds and bodies to grow and learn.


Based on the Broadway musical 'Spring Awakening' (and, by extension, the original play) Wedekind Academy is a modern-day AU RP set at F. Wedekind Academy, an isolated, ultra-conservative boarding school. Classes are segregated by sex (male & female, boys & girls, there is nothing beyond that, don't even bring it up). There is no internet access and the library only carries 'approved' books. Discipline is strict and physical. But perhaps there's a little bit of rebellion running through the place all the same.

BERMUDA

Welcome to Bermuda, a small, remote island in the North Atlantic Ocean off the coast of North America, known for its pink-sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and exotic natural wonders!

…among other things.

As part of the infamous Bermuda Triangle (or the Devil's Triangle, as some call it), there is a legend to be had, and with this legend comes chaos. A tropical paradise greets you at first glance, but upon further investigation, you'll notice that the island is deserted and appears to have been for years.

Those living here just vanished during their regular daily routine on March 15th, 2010. Do you know the story of Roanoke Island? Yeah, it's kind of like that. You'll find mysterious carvings of random words and symbols scattered over 21 square miles. What do they mean? Do they hold clues to what might've happened?

Only time will tell if they're total nonsense or justifiable warnings.

Wanda Maximoff is grieving. She has lost her brother, her parents, her love, and now her control. And she's finding that too many people are trying to break into her perfect world she's secured in New Jersey for her family she's rebuilt from the ground up.

When she expanded the border, she unknowingly began pulling in more people from all over the universes to play roles in her growing town. Perhaps some of them will aid in breaking the spell. Maybe others will find malicious intents. Either way, they are all trapped in Westview...forever.

Or, at least, until Wanda says.

A panfandom Marvel game! A year running and recently the town became a CITY!

Dread South RPG



The game has been open since the beginning of March!

Deep underneath Angelica, TN lives a force that was brought into this dimension by a pact of magic and blood. The original groups made a deal with this being not knowing if it was good, evil, or something else entirely. In exchange for sacrifices of body, heart, and soul, each group was given special abilities that keep the town from erupting in a state of chaos. Those that have pledged are bound forever.

Dread South is an old-school, plot-driven game with a southern gothic vibe, supernatural and horror themes, and a cast of original characters. We are looking for players who are interested in story-heavy, character relationships. As moderators, and as a collective, we are very into a collaborative and safe place for writers to share ideas. How well you write is great but how involved you are, how imaginative you are, and how willing you are to put yourself out there means so much more.


We are looking for the leader of the Witch sect but want to round out all of the sect groups.

We have created a list of pre-made character types to draw inspiration from but we are also looking for your creative OCs too!

Writers here strive for the dramatic, tension-based aspects of storylines. Dread South is not a ‘slice of life’ game.

Come and see what we're about and if you love friendly people, plot, world-building, and getting into the heads of your characters consider applying.



It's time to stand at the edge of oblivion and face the darkness.

The Lonely Planet
Premise

You are alone. Your people are alone.


Sometimes greed goes too far, it's even worse when that greed has access to technology they don't have a grasp of yet, it's even worse when that greed has magic they have no grasp of.

The year was 2374 and everything should have been fine. The Sol system had long been fighting with itself. Who had the right to roam freely? Who had the right to technology? Who did space belong to? Unfortunately, someone finally decided they were going to take what they wanted. The only problem? They weren't ready for the deck of cards they were about to draw.

There was an explosion, no one could explain it. No one can explain it even now.

Nearly 300 years later, it's 2672.

Cities were refounded, governments fell apart to be rebuilt at a local level, there was no possibility to travel beyond the asteroid belt any more. Say bye bye to hundreds of years of work to make a few of the moons and asteroids around Jupiter and Saturn habitable. Forget it. Donezo. Over with. Cancelled.

Those who survived were irreparably changed. But not just changed, tossed far into the future, ripples surrounding them as they stood on ground they once lived on - now long abandoned, a shimmer of light in the distance where a singular building had survived, thrived. And it wasn't just them either, there were new faces - other faces, new memories. But they'd survive again, they had to.

Welcome to the era of scavengers. Welcome to the age of mercenaries. Welcome to the period of every damn man for themself.

Does your cell phone work? Sure. Do you really want to risk crossing the desert that now is the mid-west to go on a little vacation to Malibu? Maybe freaking not.

SUBTLE KNIVES
a panfandom game
PREMISE
Once upon a time there was a knife so sharp, it could slice through the fabric between worlds. It was destroyed but now someone has taken the shards to remake one knife into the tips and edges of many, and the worlds are being opened up.

There are windows into other worlds. And people are coming through these windows.

Subtle Knives is a panfandom slice of life small town game with a giant mystery at it's core, a shadowy church organization, witches, a polar bear getting drunk in an alley, and lots of room to grow. And daemons. Everyone gets a daemon.

Will you choose to pursue the mystery or settle down and try to find happiness? Will you try to find your way back home? Will you challenge the powerful Magisterium, side with witches, or just keep your head down and work at the docks? And what will you do when you wake up to find an alethiometer sitting by your bed, trying to tell you something about your future?

DONE & DUSTED

A Post-War Harry Potter AU


Wounds that are picked at will never scab. Come to the Retreat, where we know the trauma and hurt sown by two generations of Wizarding Wars, and where we will help you find the understanding to try to heal.

Just mind the hands that won't let those wounds clot.


Done and Dusted is an AU Harry Potter game set in 2002, with its canon point divergence being post-HBP. So while the war ended and Harry did his hero thing, it didn't necessarily have such a neat and happy ending. We all know that major events such as this has an effect on people in both positive and negative ways. This game's intention is to explore the more messy and unpretty effects and how it affects both the characters and those around them. Done and Dusted is centered around a dark plot and will have dark themes.

Patients will not be able to use magic on the Retreat premises, and have no idea that the person in charge has every intention of ensuring mental wellness won't be achieved.


Please see our wanted page for character requests. Original characters are also very welcome.

Maine has always considered itself a great state: from the deep pine woods to the bays and the rocky coasts, Maine boasts some of the most picturesque areas that the United States has to offer. However, with tourism down, and the cost of housing rising, the Governor turned his sights to building up the more underutilized coastal islands.

Their first project was Portariva– an already some-what developed small town Island. The Governor put money into restructuring the downtown areas, giving liberal loans for start-up businesses, and just on the residential side they constructed Alcove Apartments, geared for young professionals and upstarting families.

Portariva is an original character game set in the fictional island of Portariva, off the coast of Maine. The island is based off Vinalhaven, Maine. This game is a slice of life game that centers on the lives of those in the apartment buildings and the surrounding area. This game supports diversity and is LGBTQIA+ friendly.

Marchen Academy

What is Happily Ever After?
(OC only Fairytale Game)
PREMISE
The Thousand Kingdoms has stood on the traditions of their legends for ages. Each sovereignty held their own weight and place in the structure of society leaving very little in the ways of increasing one's status. If there was ever a change to come, it would be slow. That was until the paths to the Outlands opened.

The Marchen Academy was established between the fairies of the Outlands and those in the Thousand Kingdoms, in an attempt to help integrate the new worlds into society and foster goodwill and close bonds between the youth of neighbouring kingdoms. Alliances are to be created and trade to grow so that each can bring prosperity to the lands around them and a better world for their children to grow up in.

Some see this as an opportunity. Some see this as a threat.

HP AU: Done and Dusted - Gauging Interest


[info]dusted_mods
[info]rpg_connect
Putting out a feeler to gauge interest in a post HBP Harry Potter AU game set a few years after Voldemort is killed. The game is based off a game called Done and Dusted which was run on Greatest Journal in 2006-2007. The idea is that the Battle of Hogwarts still happened, Voldemort still was killed, but we want to be able to say all of the unnecessary character deaths from book 7 didn’t have to happen!

We’re going to be very vague as far as what happened in Harry’s 7th year other than that there was a final attack on Hogwarts in Harry’s seventh year and he did kill Voldemort. But we leave it in shades of gray so that you can develop your character through this time as you see fit!

The game is based on the premise of a mental institution dressed up as a “retreat” for patients to come and deal with problems caused by the war. People are coming to terms with their emotions, and coming to terms with former friends and enemies. Call it an emotional rollercoaster of character development. Patients at the retreat will either willingly admit themselves (good guys), be committed, or be incentivized to get time knocked off their sentence if they spend a term at the institution (hello, Death Eaters!). They will be required to attend weekly therapy sessions with the on-premise counselors while being kept an eye on under the careful eye (and hidden cameras!) of the director of the facility and the Aurors she has employed to keep things in order.

Patients will be restricted from using magic in the form of casting spells while at the retreat, but creatures such as Werewolves will still undergo the magical changes that their condition demands they do (and yes, magical creatures are welcome!). Patients will also find that their emotions are heightened while on retreat grounds, feeling things much more intensely than they would normally.

We’re going to host the game in a journal forum setting, either in InsaneJournal or Dreamwidth. The patients will be given journals that have been charmed so that they can communicate with other patients and staff through them (wizarding social media!). In game days will span over the course of a few to several real life days, depending on if there are events happening in game and how much time we feel an in game day needs. There will be official day changes posted in game so everyone knows what day we’re on, and what’s going on.

If we can get interest from a few people we’re going to move forward in creating the platform and get moving! We already have the plot foundations worked out and it won’t take too long to get up and going if we are able to pique some interest. Please either comment here, private message me here, DM me on Discord (Schubaccah#6690), or email at doneanddustedmods@gmail.com .

*Done and Dusted is a darker-themed game that will have elements of trauma (mental and physical) and other adult themes. We will use cuts and tags to properly ensure content warning but we want to be up front about the existence of mature themes that will be present. Having said that, this is not a smut-based RP community. While we are sex-friendly, we don’t want this turning into a porno. Plot is always first!

***Please note that our want to play in the HP sandbox does not, in any shape or form, condone JKR's transphobia or TERFism. Her beliefs are harmful and just plain nasty toward people who just want to live their lives, and contradictory to the lessons many people around the world gained from the series itself.

If you'd like to help out with the issues transgender people are fighting against today, particularly in the state of Texas, here are two articles with information on what's happening and places you can donate toward.

CRISIS CRASH

Premise FAQ Rules Apply Taken Holds Drop Box
The year is 2022. It's as one would expect, the latest Marvel movie just made a killing at the box office. They just announced yet another reboot of an old tv show. People are excited for the next big thing on Disney+. Twitter is arguing about something in the DCEU. Again. Streamers are playing the heck out of the game that's trending this week. A senator was put in a hospital by a vampire attack and a dragon was elected mayor of a small town in Iowa recently.



So maybe it isn't as normal as one thought. That could be because a year ago a large empty metropolitan city appeared in Delaware. It was soon followed by the appearance of individuals the world once only knew as fiction. Soon after a mysterious organization calling themselves the Multiversal Acclimation Ministry (M.A.M for short) arrived to lend their resources to this mass disaster of the multiverse.



Apparently, there was yet another multiverse crisis and now refugees have found themselves displaced on Earth. This one. A world where magic didn't exist. Superheroes didn't fly by stopping crime. Well, that's out the window now.



Thanks to M.A.M, the displaced have found themselves starting their new lives in the city that was dubbed Metropolis (it was really hard to ignore the Daily Planet building) and the world may not be what one would expect after all.

Game will start at twenty characters.
