Roleplays that feature horror elements.
Welcome to the new world, delectable friend. The world has finally, after so many centuries of trying to hide its secrets, relented to showing its true colours. It's a new age, the year is 2020, and the streets are rife with new social issues, adventures and - oh! - did we forget to mention supernatural creatures?
<p> The not-so-secret secret is out; aristocrats are desperate to show their importance by aligning themselves with these fantastical beings, politicians are covertly preparing methods of destroying other species in case of an uprising, and the working class find themselves getting desperate now that the competition for work has just upped its difficulty. Mortals thought they were alone, and now, they have started to make the true discovery...</p>
<p><b>We are one of them</b>.</p>
<p>In this new world, there is no such thing as 'normal'. Everything is something, but not everyone is someone.</P>

What had once been a small, homegrown operation in the Mid-City district of New Orleans, has since grown into a large and far-reaching organization with locations across the United States. The agents of SCRI—Supernatural and Cryptid Reconnaissance and Investigation—have fashioned themselves the guardians of humanity, the buffer between ordinary people and what goes bump in the night, the protectors against the things that would harm the living. Having successfully worn down the vampire threat that had once run-rampant in their neighborhood to more manageable numbers, SCRI sets its sights on the broader paranormal and supernatural world.
They were not always here but managed to insinuate themselves into society almost seamlessly. If not for a particularly annoying band of humans, a higher concentration of the Vampire population would have remained in New Orleans, in Hester. They spread themselves out; those who did not learn to blend in suffered and perished at the hands of SCRI, their nests burned to cinders, and their homes destroyed. They formed bonds based on the hierarchy of ascribed status and have learned, despite the class stratification, the importance of staying together.
They are better than humans; more refined, civilized, cultured, and certainly more intelligent, but for now, they hold their places in the dark, waiting.
However, those at the bottom of these hierarchies recognize the system for what it is, and they aim to change it, to destroy it utterly. Those on the fringes of Vampire society reminisce about the old days of chaos and how, if things were done their way, the right way, they would be set to inherit the earth or at least all of Louisiana.
But there is a rumor, a salve for the ailment of the modern vampire who wants to have it all, the power, the old days of disarray: the Sauria.
As of July 26, 2020, Ghosts& Gadgets is officially open!
Dark Tranquility is an 18+ original supernatural set in a modern day fictional city of Disturbia. A city where supernaturals walk as imitation humans, blending in with society to keep their true identities hidden.
To humans, supernaturals are merely a myth. A legend. Those with a sane mindset doesn't believe in supernatural creatures. They're alien and only exists in fairytales.
The City of Disturbia is rich with businesses, heavy in tourism, overwhelmed in violence, and bustling in the nightlife scene. It's a breeding ground to attract individuals from all walks of life. This includes the fabled supernaturals!
It's a Fae World
Supernatural beings are collectively known as "Fae", while humans refer to them as supernaturals, or mythical creatures. Some even work in high profile career positions such as government and law positions to assist in covering up traces and evidence of their existence from humans and their colleagues.
Slavery; The Claim Game
Most humans that end up believing in the supernaturals, or Fae, ends up as slaves to them. Whether by choice from the human, by force from the supernatural, or through the slave trade market, any species of the Fae can claim a human as their pet. Pets are often devoted to their owner(s) typically if they choose to be claimed by a supernatural. A bond is solidified between a Fae and its pet through a pearl stone infused into a piece of jewelry or collar of their choice. This jewelry or collar can only be obtained and enchanted from a witchcrafter.
A witchcrafter's enchanted slave collar or jewelry neutralizes the abilities and powers of any supernatural slave forced to wear it.
Humans who end up knowing too much about the existence of supernaturals could find themselves on the wrong side of the creatures, as it could lead to them being hunted down. As an alternative, these humans are given the option to become slaves where they will be unable to tell what they know to others.
Supernaturals can also become slaves to other supernatural. Like humans, this can be done by will, force or through the slave trade market.
The City of Sex & Sin
Disturbia is a city often named the City of Sex & Sin. Known for it's nightlife scenes, it's red light district vibes, it attract many lusty individuals; from humans seeking out the thrill, to opportunistic Fae looking to take advantage of the eager and the submissive. Disturbia has a rich district of BDSM enthusiasts. Clubs are plentiful where live public sex shows and entertainment exists.
A strong LGBTQ community is also present in Disturbia, attracting human and Fae from many different backgrounds and preferences. No one is off limits in the City of Sex & Sin. Slavery is also prevalent within Disturbia with humans and Fae, whether they are interested in the BDSM scene or not. Some are against their will, and this is typically present in the underground. Most slavery crimes goes unreported for obvious reasons.
Rape, kidnapping, and sexual assaults are also something individuals must keep a look out for in Disturbia. Sex and violence are a constantly rising statistic in the city and with the rising population, that doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon.

The Past, The Present, or The Future… Where will your story take you?
The Past, The Present & The Future
Where am I to post? I don't understand? All will be explained, I promise. In the event of having numerous boards and begging to have this or that. We've opted for the following loose eras but are fluid:
The Past is the medieval domain of the Creatures: the vampires, werewolves, and others have kingdoms ruled by their own. The humans either submit to rule or take up with the hunters to try to attack the battlements of the strongholds.
The Present is the modern-day world as we know it, where the creatures and most gifted live in hiding or in communities that keep them safe from the Templars and the hunters.
The Future is the world of totalitarian government, dirty technology and where controlled borders are the norms. Your life is under their control... all for the greater good, of course.
We'd love to see some fresh faces and meet new friends! No word count, no app... Loads of potential!
All member boards are open for your reading pleasure and to get a feel for what we have to offer.
A note about "plots" or Era ideas... as long as your creature characters fall in line with the outlines or have contacted the staff about modify, etc. you are free to post as you like. We're an anthology board, dare I say borderline sandbox. Have fun, write, share, it's what we're here for!
Time is irrelevant anymore, lol. We have no activity checks for this reason, we're adults, and reality is far more important than posts. Please remember this. We're here for you to take a break with. Stay safe, stay well... AND Post boosts are staying on throughout the summer!!
Come take a look! We'd love to see some fresh faces and meet new friends!
