    INTEREST CHECK Lead and Glamour

    Lore || Sign-up || Discord The streets of 1950 New York seethes with discontent, from the vague tension even unwitting citizens could sense in the air, to the near instinctual agitation of cut-throats and thieves who unconsciously grow to fear the dark, to the pervading unspoken dread...

    The Dark Depths (Subterranean Medieval RP)

    Alright, so this is a bit out of my normal RP zones. First of which, I've got most of the general lore down to pat. It's not something I do, and it's not something a lot of people enjoy. Based on that fact, I'm dumping it right in front of this form so people can see it, absorb this...

    Betrothed To The Unknown. Open idea!

    Okay so I have a real craving for a medieval arranged marriage RP. My main idea is that the two characters come from completely different worlds. I already have a character for this, her background is a mix of norse and celt. This idea will require some world building as it obviously needs to...

    Lady Di's idea thread. Open with new ideas!

    I'm still getting used to this site so bear with me if things are out of place or don't make sense. But the main point of this thread is that I'd like to start a couple RPs.

    CLOSED SIGNUPS Strangers in a Strange Land Recruiting

    Hello! Thank you for reading my introduction to this rather ambitious project of mine. In full disclosure, this roleplay idea is inspired by and draws a lot from the manga Drifters by Kohta Hirano, the same mind behind Hellsing. That being said, this will not follow the storyline of the manga...

    Strangers: Onwards Towards Linia

    Prologue The carriage carrying Craig and Kassim moves through a darkened forest, Keldar himself seeming quiet the whole of the time.

    (Peregrine x Jackalope)

    The North American Trade Convention took place in the same location every year. Right in the heart of downtown Toronto resided a massive structure, a behemoth made up almost entirely of glass and triangles.

    Strangers in a Strange Land, Prologue
