PREMISE
Most people would say that they know the story of Peter Pan as a free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can never grow up, leader of the Lost Boys, and able to fly with just the right amount of pixie dust. While all of this is true, Pan’s residence on the island has been in place since the early 1900s, and Neverland has changed.

Physically, the inhabitants of the island are youthful in appearance, though unquestionably, no one would mistake them for children. The dark shadows of their eyes speak of the bloodshed they've seen, the loved ones they've lost. Blissfully unaware, Pan continues to stir the pot with his games, anxiously awaiting new opportunities to draw new alliances or fracture the ones he's grown bored of maintaining. Through constant use of the wormhole, tears have been open into new worlds, efficiently cultivating new species and walks of life throughout the island.

A game of Savages can't have a clear winner, but everyone is playing all the same. And when the island can change on the whim of a boy, it's important to know where you stand when the sun sets over Neverland.

Welcome to the Rift
a panfandom rpg
The world is not as stable as you think. Ley lines, lines of magic energy, criss-cross the earth. Sometimes, where they intersect, form pockets, the walls between worlds get weaker. They put out siren calls that are nearly impossible to ignore. They open doors. Doors to other worlds. Other times. Other dimensions.

You have fallen through one of those doors.

GAME OPENS ON MARCH 1ST

New Legacies: A Next Generation Marvel RP

NEW LEGACIES
We all know the stories. A man from Brooklyn is injected with a serum that turns him into the hero of WWII. Four people gain mysterious new abilities on an interstellar mission. A kid from Queens is bitten by a radioactive spider. A man forms a team of five mutants with hopes of changing the world. A god from another world finds himself trapped on Earth. The Avengers, The X-Men, The Future Foundation, SHIELD, and many more teams forming to help protect the world and stop threats faced both on the Earth and throughout the galaxy.

Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Wolverine, we all know their names. We know how they saved the world, the great deeds that they accomplished, what they sacrificed. But what happened as they got older? As they realized that they weren't going to live forever (well, some of them were, but that's besides the point), they realized that there was more than just saving the world. They wanted to have families, someone to carry on their legacies. They started to have children, and juggle family responsibilities with saving the world.

As their children got older, some of them decided to follow into the "family business". They started to take up the mantle's of their parents, or create something completely new and their own. These are their stories. The time of the old guard is past. Now is the time for the new generation to shine and start making their own stories.

[info]newlegacies is a next generation game set in the Marvel 616 universe. Original character friendly and adult versions of current canon children in Marvel Comics are welcome. The game is thread driven, with a focus on allowing players to plot not only for their characters, but for the game as a whole.

Now open!

The fest is open to any writer, artist or podficcer aged 18+. All characters and ships from the wider Potterverse (including Fantastic Beasts and The Cursed Child) are welcome. When considering what constitutes 'horror’, feel free to think broadly – psychological thrillers, dark and twisty angst and chilling tales, mindfuckery and so on, as well as the classic tropes of the genre. Creations focused around creatures such as werewolves, vampires, zombies, inferi, acromantulas, dementors and the like are very welcome, also elements of the Potterverse itself that are 'horrific’ – the Horcruxes, splitting of souls, Imperius and so on. Claiming is open for this year's HP Horror Fest.
