    Good Evening,

    I am in search of anyone with creativity who loves gritty, psychological, plot-based roleplays to join me in my newest group roleplay, DARKNESS.

    It's an Urban Fantasy roleplay based in a modern day New York City. I expect there will be a supernatural edge to this roleplay enabling all those fantastical characters from werewolves to Vampire hunters to come and make their plays for power on the streets of one of the most famous cities in the world.

    I intend for this to be gritty (18+) with murders, corruption, sex, backhanded deals, politics, family feuds and more because this mishmash of conflict makes for great roleplaying. I do intend for there to be those sided with justice to make things even more interesting and we'll see just how far those characters will go to rid NYC of it's underworld.

    So where do you come in? Well i invite you to come and create within the city, bring your characters, roleplay out history and enjoy the process of creating a very intricate dynamic.

    I'd love feedback and idea's i can implement through maps and visual representations of the world.

    I have already begun building a reference website for it where all characters, factions and such will be advertised and promoted. Along with a short list of rules, conflict resolution steps and maps of the various areas.

    If you want to get involved then i'd love to hear from you, whether you just want to create a character, have an idea for a faction or want to become an integral part of the rise of DARKNESS.

    Thank you for reading.

    Whatever you wish, as loong as it can be justified with a story then it should be allowed. I think i am going to write a bit of backstory just to set the scene. Naturally vampires x werewolves angels x demons are going to have reasons to hate each other, i'll develop some reasoning and some general idea as to how that works on the map..

    Well if it must be with the story, it would make sense it would be just humans but they have some special people in there that hide what they are...h'm it is a idea that can be played with. But I can't wait to see the backstory....

    First draft, open to suggestions, alterations and such.

    New York City was once a vibrant metropolis, illuminated by Lady Liberty herself a symbol of hope to humans looking to follow dreams and find a fresh start. Then the day came where the Mother of Exiles promises strayed too far, and began attracting more unsavory characters. Exiled, solitary demons, vampires and werewolves all traveled from distant continents plagued too by the malice of their own kin.

    While at first they remained illusive and undetected, over time these individuals grew bold and began to strive for the power they witnessed in the privileged part of humanity. They lashed out in their attempts on a day referred to as ‘The Ark’, or the day when the world brought new creatures into the world. Many people died, whether in protest, as food or for sport as the first families staked their claim in various parts of the city and even more fled in fear. The many humans that remained knew that life now had to be about surviving the damage the fleeing members of humanity had done to their reputation.

    Of course the consequences of The Ark could have been much worse, as the First families became distracted by those, that had for generations, sought justice upon them. Angels, Hunters, Slayers and more descended upon New York City in response.

    Now sixty years later, the situation is bleak as the First Families are now bigger, some angels have fallen into darkness and the black market is overflowing with blood, drugs, slaves and promises.

    The Ark was like a day that literally Darkness took over

    If this is where the World of Darkness campaign is continuing I had an idea for the role I would play. The thought was a demon who was formerly a slayer belonging to the reconciler faction who has shirked their duties; but not their powers; to walk among humans to try and understand mortality. He would be grossly unfamiliar with the politics and lore that are common and I find may amusingly misunderstand situations.

    Well, regardless as to whether you know it or not, onto my idea. My idea is that there could be a small group of people(wouldn't exactly call it a group though, besides being the same creature, there really isn't many similarities). These people, whom I'll currently refer to as Jesters, simply exist to cause chaos. Jesters, are immortal, however, not in the way you expect.

    Every Jester is everywhere, yet nowhere. They exist, yet they do not. Simply speaking, they can be anywhere at anytime, regardless of the circumstances. They can also be in a state of nothingness, basically meaning that you can't find them, no matter how hard you look. They simply don't exist when they're in a state of nothingness/nonexistentence. Jesters can feel pain, and can "die".

    Jesters can also mold their bodies into whatever shape they desire. However, there's always a strange symbol present on the Jesters forehead, allowing for quick identification.


    Anyway, how's the idea so far?
