    At Closer, most of the players are in the same boat as you, what with being busy with school and real life responsibilities, so give us a looksie!

    • Bishop City has always been a mess. From the very first moment it came into being, it stood slightly slanted on the horizon, alerting anyone who came close to it that in this town, they do things their own way. Within this city's limits, certain realities have simply come to be accepted: Politicians are crooked, organized crime is a natural part of the economy, wealth determines development, and perhaps the most troubling of them all: each day, certain areas and certain groups of people are simply forgotten, so that other areas and other groups may be remembered. It may be shameful and it may be wrong, but on the lips of every cynic or realist who's grown up on these streets and learned the way the city works, there remains the unchanging, everyday drone: "That's Bishop for you."

      Division is accepted as a natural part of city life: West is set apart from East as North is set apart from South, and while the West Side and the North End of Bishop form a solid alliance, South End would never make such a ready ally of the nearly completely neglected East Side. The rules of division are clear: In West, there rests the wealth that demands authority, and in the busy buzz of North, the foundations for this wealth is laid, but is always supervised by the wizened City Elders of West Side. In South, the everyday man and woman lives his and her everyday life, and they may live out their entire existence without having much say at all in how the city is run, beyond that very weak influence that a vote carries with it. But elections, like everything else in this city, is more or less a game, in which the West Side and North End players seem to make up the rules as they go along. Lastly, there is East Side, the city section where voices are rarely heard and are even more rarely acknowledged. They play their own game and live by their own rules, because as far as the rest of the city is concerned, they might not even exist. They are simply a dark smudge on the map, a place where storm clouds gather and a place into which trouble is knowingly ushered, so that the rest of the city may have a little less of it.

      Yeah, that's Bishop for you, and for as long as the city's had legs, it's stood like this: slightly slanted, nonchalant and, at times, even a bit cocky. But there are those within its borders who feel that the status quo doesn't need to be preserved. There are those who feel that subdued voices need to be heard, and that accepted wrongs need to be found unacceptable. In this sea of forgetful strangers, there's more than a few who still believe in human morality, and who still remember that justice and equality aren't supposed to be simply empty words.

    May I recommend the horror-themed Miskatonic University?

    We borrow a lot of the settings, theme and characters from H.P. Lovecraft's own works. Luckily, a lot of them take place in Miskatonic University. A poor cousin to classier outfits like Harvard and Yale, maybe. But what these Ivy League heavyhitters don't have is a student body peppered with moonlighting occultists, half-breeds, necromancers and mad scientists.

    We've very new, but I'd say we're off to a good and active start. If you're into campy Lovecraftian horror, then we're a snug fit for you. We're pretty flexible too plot-wise, if you want to create a new character with a unique angle to them. We don't have an enforced wordcount, but it's an Intermediate-level board.

    Thank you for considering us, and good luck with your search!

    Victorian England is a world full of hypocritical secrecy and repression. Objects or persons considered inappropriate or unconventional is politely yet firmly ostracized. Three years ago, the presence of wizarding families was discovered. The Muggles of London forced those who could wield magic to go into exile. They were not accepted at social functions, they were fired from their jobs, some were aggressively chased out of town.

    Slowly, the fugitives began to filter into the village of Hogsmeade- located outside of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Houses were built and refurnished, business created and reestablished, and the wizarding families created a society of their own. Even in their openly magic society, the rules of etiquette are strictly observed. It is a society of secrecy, repression, and magic built on a tenuous foundation of shifting beliefs and hypocrisy that makes one wonder whether or not anyone can find their place.

    Charming is a Victorian Era Harry Potter roleplay set in the village of Hogsmeade and the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We have upper, middle and lower class characters as well as a few non-humans including: Centaurs, Goblins, House-Elves, Merfolk, Ghosts and Vampires. Our storyline is constantly being developed by the players and characters.

    To help inspire creativity and plotlines, there are at least two - if not more - voluntary monthly events going on at any period of time. We strive to be a mature, friendly and drama-free community that focuses on quality over quantity and having fun.

    If you like a historical site, you would fit well “Before the Mast”. I am offering you the real life of the Age of Sail, with plenty of swashbuckling adventures. The site goes strong since August 2010, so it’s bound to stay around…

    You may choose any playby you want, and character opportunities abound: we have 4 ships of various allegiances to crew and islands belonging to the French and British crown to populate. Mostly adult characters, teenagers do exist, but they are rare. Men aboard any ship are strongly recommended as first characters. For those who are fans of secrets, we have these too; almost nobody is what they seem to be: the tavern owners and barmaids are spying for the pirates, the French governor is involved in shady deals with the pirates, the youngest British Navy sailor is a girl in disguise, the now allies have a blood feud between them, the new privateer captain has killed the previous one in a mutiny…

    What we offer:

    - A friendly writing community, without OOC drama or cliques, with friendly and dedicated staff, in a game which has won RPG-D and RPG-U Forum of the Fortnight/ respectively Month awards.

    - An original real life site within a historical setting, without magic/ special powers.

    - a semi-advanced to advanced site, with help for the newbies provided. Word count is of one paragraph, not diffficult to achieve, given that not everybody has English as mother tongue, but there are enough people who post 400 words or more (without any requirement of matching posts).

    - The site is rated PG-13 (L2-S2-V2), so it is not really limiting. In the spirit of those years, mature temes such as sex, violence, abuse exist, without explicit scenes (fade to black required).

    - A wild variety of plots and subplots where everybody can find something to his or her liking

    - Special community events and a monthly newsletter focusing on plots, characters and players.

    - Help with character applications and quick approval

    - Extensive information regarding the historical facts – no more torturing the poor Google on your own!

    What we are looking for:

    Dedicated and interested players. While we understand that real life comes first, it is also true, that a roleplaying game is a community project and other players might desperately wait for you to post. Therefore, we are looking for players, who are willing and able to post regularly. Activity requirement is posting at least once a week in each thread you have (unless you post an "away" notice - we understand about holidays, exams, etc.).

    We are medium active (new posts every day, but not in every thread).

    We don't expect you to be a history professor or anything, just to be willing to learn and to keep your character true to the historical circumstances.

    Yes, BEFORE THE MAST wants YOU!

    PLOT|| CREW LIST|| FACE CLAIM|| NEWBIE GUIDE

    It’s 1719 in the West Indies. War time, and pirates are also on the prowl. Sea fights, duels, plenty of swashbuckling adventures, intrigues of all kinds, mutiny, romance, betrayal – “Before the Mast” brings to live the Age of Sail like none before. Be ye a pirate, a naval officer, a slave or a lady, you will find a place aboard one of our four ships or live on a paradise island.

    There is no Sparrow here, mate. Enjoy our gritty, realistic historical setting if you like learning about those times while getting immersed in weaving our original story.

    Come live with us BEFORE THE MAST, sharpen your blades, load your guns, and drain that last sip of rhum!

    Can I interest you in two sites? One's Steampunk and one's Mediaeval Fantasy. They're both chillaxed and easy to get into!



    [IMG]

    The year is 1889, and the city of New Venice is a rustling, bustling metropolis! Steam-powered ships sail and fly in the sky above the city, and the economy slides up and down with the seasonal calamity, but that's not all! Wondrous people with abilities both fantastic and horrible mingle with the average New Venetian. With a history of oppression and the threat of being regarded with great fear, many of these wonders are forced to keep their abilities a secret.

    At Birthright we offer:
    • A word-count-free experience
    • A simple, character-friendly application
    • Lots of room to expand upon our world
    • An invitation to get involved in some crazy shenanigans
    Everyone is welcome, so come on over and join us!

    Over the course of the past few decades, refugees have been pouring into the Islands of Escova, fleeing a devastating war between an invading barbarian horde and the kingdoms on the mainland. Many have come to the Islands to wait for the end of the war, but because the war is still raging with no end in sight, many have settled in the Island Nation more permanently. Some refugees continue to cling to their traditions, even those that are incompatible with Escovan society. Others hold out in the hopes that they will eventually return to their homelands.

    With the social bond between citizens growing tense and isolated incidents of violence resulting from the tension, it is only a matter of time before things spiral out of control. A foreign Queen, a new king, a war encroaching ever so steadily on the country’s doorstep, and a large population of refugees are all beginning to take their toll on Escova.

    Welcome to the Islands of Escova.
    Play a soldier, a priestess, a noble, a mage, a fisherman, or a refugee. Play the daughter of a weaver or the son of a duke. Change the history of an island. Change the history of an entire world.

    Greetings and Salutations!


    I am a Admin (Bona Dea) for Modern Fates; Cedarbrooke is a fictional town based on a real life town I grew up near and currently live by, so many of the places and pictures are real. We are Real Life setting with a fantasy/supernatural twist to it. Semi Original new board (Open over six months and we have developed a nice little community of players under the count of twenty-five so far); eager for new players, welcoming to all sexualities. Species range from Human:Normal; Gifted Human, Witches/Fae Lineage/Demons and Therianthropes. Our species information has actually just been updated. Mature site(18+); very open and approachable. I hate censors so I do not censor myself and I would not expect anyone else to censor themselves unless it is a taboo subject.

(But if you can post over it, we'll love you forever...or at least I will) We are just starting a new board Event! We just got a new layout and moved from Invisionfree to Jcink for a better custom experience so please give us a look over! <3

    Long ago, in an age before history, in a time immemorial, reality was ruled over by a great and noble kingdom. This great Kingdom heralded an age known throughout the universe as the Crystal Millennium. A great and evil force rose up to destroy the magical kingdom. That force, lead by the evil Metallia, was only stopped by the intercession of the great Queen Serenity. She won the battle, but the cost was great and all of the Crystal Kingdom's heroes lay dead. Knowing that this evil would one day return, Queen Serenity sent the souls of these great heroes, as well as the souls of her twin children, far into the future where she knew they would one day be reawakened and fight to defend the planet from evil.

    Nearly two thousand years later, those souls were reborn in the American city of Portland Oregon. This is their story.......
    -------



    If you enjoy a fast paced Alternate Universe Sailor Moon game, then Requiem of Moonlight is the place for you! We are always open to new players joining our game, so take a look at our site!

    Requiem of Moonlight takes a different approach to the classic story of Sailor Moon. First and foremost, this site is rated MA or PG-17. Secondly, it encompasses a new take on the Sailor Moon storyline. Instead of star-crossed lovers, Serenity and Endymion are brother and sister. Their lives, while intertwined in fate, are that of siblings. Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask both possess pieces of the Imperial Crystal, and only working together can they harness its full strength. Once together, however, the Imperial Crystal has the power to make or break the universe.

    The storyline is otherwise similar to the Manga. It takes place in present day, mostly in the city of Portland, and focuses very heavily on the Senshi as a whole. All are important to the overall story, and players are expected to carry their roles as major canon characters.
    CANONS CURRENTLY OPEN

    Sailor Pluto, Deimos, Phobos, Kunzite, Nephrite, Danbrite, Flourite, and some canon civilians

    We are also open to any non-canon Civilian characters!

    Heya Grimm. I might have a game for you. We aren't fast paced and right now we're kind of small. Not a lot of stuff to read before you can just jump in. :) (Plot premise and membergroups list. Everything else is up to you.)

    We don't have a word count. Instead, write what you feel is necessary to advance the plot of the thread. It's pretty simple.

    Here's the info. I'm Bee and I'm in the cbox just about all the time, so come stop by and say hi! :)

    The banner in my signature is our ad.

    Synopsis: Ante Diluvium is set about 100 years in the future and science has gotten out of control. The industry has been privatized, so nearly all research and development is done for commercial purposes. It isn’t all evil science. In many ways, science has been able to help people by curing diseases and improving quality of life. But it hasn’t helped all people. Compounds have been built as mini cities centered around research facilities. The rest of the world has been left to waste.

    Living the Dream would be happy to take you in!

    The short version of the plot is that it's a modern day urban crime rp between the Irish Mafia and the Italian and Black gangs trying to take over their neighborhood. There's a lot of violence, crime, drugs, and pretty much anything flies! We wanted it to be pretty open ended, so members had a chance to stretch their wings and make many varied plots.

    Take a look any time! The ad and links are in my signature below. :)

I run three and they're all chill and laidback, with nobody pushing you to reply constantly (though we do ask that you post at least once a month per thread at least). The app process on all the games happens to be short and sweet.

    Aeterna Roma – Eternal Rome

    [IMG]

    Welcome to Rome, the Eternal city. In a place where the streets are running thick with wine, blood, scandal, ambition, and lust, events happen so quickly that rising to power one day and falling the next is expected. Sweet words, honeyed speeches, and purses of money might milk your way to the top, but one wrong move and it's all over. This is a place where one forges alliances to survive and where enemies can seem as friends until they stab your back. A place where lust and wine are entwined so quickly that marriages are made and dissolved in months. A place where the new young Caesar fights his own Senate for power while trying to find those he can trust.

    Welcome to Rome, the Eternal City.

    Where will you go in such a place as this?


    List of Features

    Premium cbox, paid hosting with no ads!
    Active & friendly OOC and IC community
    Plenty of adoptables and canons available for play.
    Allows and encourages original characters
    Welcoming for those who have extensive knowledge about Ancient Rome or those who just want to have some fun online.

    I'll offer Tales of Secrecy, the site is brand new and we are working on getting new members. The staff team are all students so we know how it is with school stuff and having busy lives that prevent us from reading thousand of threads or writing quickly. So Tales of Secrecy might be a fit for you, we do have a few threads to read but they aren't too long.

    Hey there!

    I have a multi-game, multi-period historical site that is super friendly and laid back. Some threads are faster and some are slower, but we don't stalk for you to post or even allow that sort of harassment :D We are all mature like that! We'd love to have you. As for reading, not much you'd have to read at all, and you can definitely pick up or learn what you want as you go along. If you've ever seen any period films or the Tudors, you could play any of the games pretty easily.

    Check us out!

    [IMG]
    Historical Universes is a multi-period, multi-game historical RPG, which means we have multiple role playing games all on one board, all historical!

    Historical Universes was conceived and created because we noticed, as drivers, that we come across many of the same people in historical RPGs and would love to have those fantastic RPers all in one place! For people who are crazy about RPing and love history.

    Our plan was simple: start out with a few different games and expand as we go along and gain members. We are opening with the Borgia Papacy, Charles I (right before the English Civil War), and Louis XIV and his Musketeers. The Borgias board will be more focused on intrigue, poisonings, bribery, sexuality in Rome and greater Italy in 1501. The Charles I board will be more focus one courtly life, religious and political upheaval, the beginnings of civil war in the 1640s in England. The Louis XIV board (1660) will be heavily focused on the lower levels of court nobility and gentry with Musketeers, actors, musicians, ladies in waiting, etc, with a smattering of nobility and lots of opulent parties (think lots of art and performances crossed with swashbuckling). Our new Tudors game is set before Henry VIII has taken ANY wives.

    *TUDORS GAME OPENED AND RUNNING WITH OVER 15 CHARACTERS ALREADY!!!*

    It doesn't end there. In the coming weeks we plan to open Charles II (The Restoration), Valois France (Louis XII to run alongside Henry VIII), and Ramses II Egypt! We have other dastardly and exciting secret plans as well, but you'll have to join to find out about those in the coming weeks!
