Germany or Japan, c. 1925-1939
Characters aged 12-20
Themes: “Coming of Age”, “Through a Looking-Glass Darkly”

The characters find themselves stepping sideways into a strange fantasyland where creatures of legend dwell, and yet which oddly mirrors their own. This land is ruled by a terrible prince and his cadre of faithful champions/enforcers. The characters are swept up into a web of intrigue and mystery as they waver between realities and try to escape the penalties of crossing boundaries not meant for mortals to cross, while dealing with the dark clouds gathering over their own world. Soon, lines begin to blur on both sides, and they develop unforeseen new talents.



This RP would take place during the timeline of events leading up to World War II, and would be set either in Germany or Japan. (Feel free to note your preference.) Characters would be preteens, teenagers, or very young adults. It would involve a fantasy world influenced by the mythology of the chosen country AND the historical real world setting, complete with the relevant political climes. This could potentially be a jump-in roleplay, but I would like to get a dedicated group involved. NOTE: My current RP, Penumbra, is my main focus at present, and I do not intend to start this immediately. My best guess for E.T.A. of the OOC would be in two weeks.

Let me know if this sounds interesting.

Adventure stories! They can be fantasy, modern, sci-fi, all kinds! Give me some good world travel stories and I'm all over it! I also enjoy romance stories and even though I tend to play females I love playing gay men.
I'm interested in the German plot, but I'd love to be a Soviet from Estonia if that's possible! >_> (Even though Estonia was part of the Soviet Union at that point...)

Light fantasy, historical, steampunk, some post-apocalyptic (think, biker rust-punk), anthro (non-anime furry), modern, some sci fi...this & that, I'm pretty random. I don't mind getting frisky as well!
I said it before, I totally vote for Germany! I would love to be a Swing Kid during this time, or the complete opposite and be a Hitler Youth. :D

I voted Germany.

The fact of it being in Japan is just a complete turn off for me. D<

I know more about Japan than Germany, but I SUPPOSE research isn't entirely impossible. >_>
I'll consider this more when the OOC comes out.

I'm called Northern Italy in my group of friends in high school x3 (From Hetalia). As well as Chrona, and a lot of other characters.
