Welcome to Deadlight! We are a present day roleplay in an fantasy setting based on Earth, with both original elements and fandom re-imaginings.

Once Upon A Time, Man stopped giving the stories faith. But it was the stories that gave life meaning. Without the stories, there was no more worth within life. The Great Spider Anansi looked to the world, mourning what it had lost, and was moved to action. The spider wove his web, beginning a new story. And from that story, all stories that had been before – the stories that had been real, read, spoken or imagined – lit back to life. From that story, all things were made possible.

I've received endless help from various people with the board. A big 'thank you' to:

  • Tasha, for so many things that go beyond mentioning.
  • Spud for countless incidents of coding and graphics support.
  • All of the players for their fantastic participation and creative energy.

  • All re-imagined fandom properties are copyright of their respective, original creators.
  • All characters and affiliated posts and threads are the copyright of their players.
  • Plot, concept, board information and storylines are copyright of Seph.
  • All other individual properties are copyright of Deadlight.

    In the year 4000, Sker is a grey, barren land. There are few that know it, and fewer still that speak of it, but two thousand years ago Sker used to be Earth; or, at least, Earth used to exist where Sker does now. The Fractal Ones wounded Creation when they claimed it, slitting it open where all planes across reality met with Earth. The remnants of these planes collided and merged, forming a skerry within the fresh wound, even as it scarred around the rocky outcropping. Here, the Fractal Ones rule, as they do through all of Creation. Welcome to the end of the world.

    Myth Made Matter
    For millennia, these ancient civilisations have existed alongside humans on Midgard. Sometimes they were concealed, writ to their own solitudinous destinies. Sometimes their paths intersected with humanity's; but for the most part, they were thought to be nothing more than myth. Until recently; recently they have allowed Man to become thoroughly aware of their existence.

    When the stories of the world were retroactively given new life, the Gods of the faded Pantheons took that moment to latch onto its power and create a land they were more familiar with: Outopos. It plays host to Yggdrasil, the World Tree; Aeaea, Circe's island; New Asgard, the realm of the Elven and Dwarven and countless other realms within its body of mass. It hovered above Earth, bound to Earth by the rainbow bridge, Bifröst of Norse legend.

    Earth. New York City. Home, sweet home. No matter how much myth is reintroduced into the world, man is still the widest spread sentient being on Earth, and New York is just as busy and prevalent as it's always been.

    One of the largest and wealthiest cities in the world, Metropolis isn't at all shy about showing it. From its towering, Luthor owned constructs – symbolic of the heights Lex Luthor has raised Metropolis to – to its staggering '1930s architecture stretched like a rubber band', Metropolis is a marvel of a city.

    Gotham City
    With its gothic cathedrals and art deco statuary, Gotham is famed for its corruption and a sense of urban decay that never quite seems to lift. Its criminal element certainly attest to that, making the most of the city's darkness to fuel their wicked hungers. Despite it, the city has an undeniable vibrant, energetic nature and a resilient, resourceful populace.

    There are a host of organisations working on Earth. Some of them work for good, some work for ill, and some work toward purposes that only they comprehend; but each of them needs a base of operations to work out of.

    There are many things that lie beyond the spheres of this realm, this time and place. Tales from the future, tales from the past; tales from universes parallel to this one, or ones wholly tangential. Alternate times, universes and existences, all of which lie upon to you from these cross-roads.
