When Darkness Falls is a multi-location original character role-playing game set in the iconic ciies of New Orleans, Louisiana and Boston, Massachusetts. The story began in November 2012 when supernatural beings were still hidden from the public, living alongside unsuspecting humans who were never the wiser. Werewolves, vampires, shape-shifters, gifted humans, and others struggled to keep their secrets, while still maintaining relatively "normal" lives.

In 2014 a group of humans, bent on exposing the supernaturals for what they are, began cropping up in cities across the globe including New Orleans and Boston. Their cause grew quickly, and despite resistance the supernatural community was exposed to the world in grand fashion.

In New Orleans the initial reaction was to condemn supernaturals, to lock them away and to keep their kind away from humans. This proved futile, however, as the supernaturals banded together and fought back. The war between the human and supernatural worlds did not last long, however, before the government began to intervene.

In Boston the news of the supernatural world was swallowed with a bit more ease, though unrest was soon apparent. While no fighting broke out there was a push to separate supernaturals from human beings for safety reasons, a movement that was quickly squelched out when the government stepped in to run the show.

Presently the world is still making a shift toward a new era, where supernaturals and humans can co-exist together in a world no longer segregated by lack of knowledge. There are those who still oppose this movement, though laws and regulations are now in place to protect the interests of all parties. While humans must learn to cope with the new world order, supernaturals must learn to adjust to no longer lurking in the shadows; darkness is no longer their ally.

Opened in November of 2012 and currently seeking new, active players for both New Orleans and our new city: Boston!

Expunging users

We have corrected the issue that was causing users to not get expunged. They are currently expunging now.


I'm exhausted and fussy as hell today. I've been I'll since last week and it's been especially bad since Tuesday. I had a migraine, then post migraine nausea and now the migraine has rebounded back.

My icons have gone down. I want to cry. I'm stressed and numb and I want to get lost in fiction. But it's time to make lunch and I have things to do and I wish I had a time Turner.

I'm dealing with the photobucket issues. The site I'm moving to has some transfer tools that I've put in a support request but I'm still in a sort of shock about it.

So many tutorials are lost. And there authors haven't logged onto their journals in years. Some are semi dead but some images were hosted elsewhere.

My icons are still up for now but immortalje's icons have been down for two days now, I can see them because I follow her on photobucket but her icon journal is all broken images.

I have 5,600 icons that I've made through the year. The icon project I had started was transferring them to another account to separate my fandom life from my real life as well as to show from oldest to newest just how much improvement I've made through the years.

But now it's on hold.

The new icon hosting site is for fandom arts and RPGs I'm hoping it's a good one.

But I'm also mourning the site I've used since 2004 and the icon communities that have been dying through the past few years but at least you could still find the old icons and tutorials but now so many are replaced by unsightly images.

Fuck you photobucket. You could have said, hey you need a paid account to use this feature. And I would have happily paid for the cheaper plans to host my little icons. It's a hobby after all, wouldn't have even complained, would have just paid up like i did years ago. But demanding nearly 400 dollars a year?

It's just little things I made in photoshop for fun. It's icons that I do to give something to the fandoms that see me through my anxiety and depression.

You cut off your nose to spite your face. And people don't need you anymore for that price, especially when I could create my own website to share my icons for less than 200 a year... and I could have my own domain name...
