This world is a lie, a grand illusion that none of us can see through. We are trapped here, living lives that are not ours in a time that is long gone, and a place that never was. This is Eidolon City, home of the captive dreamers. Are the lives we lead here unspoken wishes? Personal hells? Or a twisted echo of the waking world we cannot remember?

We are not alone in this place, this reflection of ourselves. We are the dreamers, but with us are the Aspects. They come from religion, from fairytales, from primal concepts of life and death, from everything that man has ever given a name. But as we are different here, so are they. Unbound from their origins, a hero may fall, a villain may flourish, and every god and demon looks no different from you or I. It falls to us now. To the dreamers and the dreams, let us choose what this place will be. Wake up. Enter the dream.

Eidolon City is a newly revamped and re-opened noir-themed game in a 1940s setting seeking players in a vast number of different roles, from mobsters to policemen, business owners of every stripe, and everything in between. Our Aspect system allows you to adapt a concept from existing fairytales, fables, or myths as a noir-centric character, with plenty of room to rework your concept as the game goes. We actively encourage character-driven changes to the larger setting of the game, from owning notable landmarks to vying for power among the crime syndicates and police.

Unsure about what kind of character to play? We have examples to help you get started, and a list of wanted characters and frameworks for characters to help you get right into the game with personal plots and connections! Don’t be shy, come take a look!

Who are we?

We are an original character supernatural game based in the very near future, in a world where the lines between 'normal' and everything else are fracturing all over the place. A world that seems to be pretty much falling apart and where everyone is having to adapt to stay alive.

The game focuses on certain areas around the world. These areas have been cut off from the world at large, but are connected to each other by a series of mystical doorways. Each area has it's own issues and problems to deal with - whether that be rampaging vampires, supernatural gang warfare, food shortages, or just learning to get on with life.

We have a friendly and welcoming game environment and player base and dynamic plots that range from the small, involving just a couple of players, to overarching game plots. A supportive mod team ensures that everyone gets as much as they can from the game itself.

We're also looking for new characters! Could you play one of them?

Who are you?

You are Noah St James. You're an eighteen year old musician from Marquette, Michigan. Last summer, your dreams came true and you and your high school band were signed to a small record label and moved to New York to work on an album. Well, you and two out of the three other band members moved - your best friend and lead guitarist, Thom Harkin stayed behind and left the band. Only you know why - Thom has a secret he cannot tell. He is a protector, sworn to protect your little sister, Kaysen, with his life. You know his secret, you know why he had to stay behind as you left the small town for the bright lights of Manhattan. Only then Manhattan got cut off and the world around you changed.

You are Devon and maybe you've been a hunter all your life. Or maybe not - your past is pretty much your own. One thing's for certain though, you can handle yourself. You're capable, and assured and maybe have a few tricks up your sleeve. Life lately hasn't been good to you though, because currently, you're missing. At least, you are according to your best friend Deacon, and according to the teenager you took under your wing a few months back, Rori. They're both looking for you and all they know is that you're alive. They'd really like to find you sometime soon.

You are Heidi Ramone. You're an air elemental, but life for you was fairly normal until you took that job after college working at the Stanley Hotel. And then suddenly there were ghosts, and the place got cut off and well, there's not a whole lot to do out there in the middle of nowhere. Of course, then that door in the ballroom appeared, and you found out you could visit other places - places all round the world. And damn, but you're a curious one...

You are Jen O'Reilly. Born and raised in Manchester, England, if you have any kind of a supernatural ability, you've never revealed it in public. You lead what seemed to be a perfectly normal life. You had your friends (even if one of them, Dean Conway moved away to Marquette, Michigan last summer. Things changed for you at New Year, when you and your boyfriend, Stuart (Stu) headed out into the city centre to celebrate and you've been trapped there ever since, in a town full of vampires. You've been fighting to stay alive. hell, as far as anyone knows, you didn't make it. So many people have been turned into vampires, after all. What does the future hold for you? And what does the future hold for your boyfriend?

You are Switchboard. The voice of Manhattan, the nerve center of it all. You are holding it all together, playing music, playing emergency call operator, you're the sense of humor that keeps people going, the woman with the power to touch lives. Touch everyone's lives, since everything happened. There's a bright side, damnit, and you find it. And when you do, you're going to share it. Light up the dark, fill those sound waves with your voice and music. Rock on, Manhattan. You'll be there to guide.

You are Maxine Bennet. Or maybe you are her husband, Brendan Bennet. Either way, you're trying to support your daughter, Roxie, who you adopted when she was 11 years old. It was only then that you discovered that she was a dreamwalker. Times have been interesting since then, and you've tried to support her. You've also tried to bring her up in the ways of your church - the Church of Harmony. you believe that all creatures, no matter what race, devotion, subset, or supernatural species or ability, deserve tolerance and peace. Unfortunately they don't all believe that in return.

Eidolon City

Welcome to a world built from ideas and imagination

What do you want from a game?
Do you like things simple, or complex?
Would you prefer to deal on one level, or work towards a larger end?


Eidolon City is a game with a difference. It is a game which works on a number of levels, with elements which you can pick and choose.

Maybe for you, Eidolon City is just a city. A noir world of the 30s and 40s where rival mafias war for control, where the nights are dark and dangerous. Where bright lights make the rich and beautiful glitter and gleam, but cast dark shadows to hide the shady, the homeless, the forgotten dregs of society. There in Eidolon City, characters live out their lives never realising that maybe there is more, that they are not actually what they seem. And some of them may never, in fact, find out the truth.

Or maybe, for you, you want to know what's behind that curtain. Get involved with the origins of it all. Investigate the mysterious village, the theatre, the colleseum - all of which stand on the outskirts of the city, so very out of place, but seemingly accepted by all of the city inhabitants as a normal part of life. But yet, life there is different, odd things seem to happen if you go there. People change.

Because Eidolon City is nothing like what it seems. Underneath it all, it is a world constructed from dreams. Nothing is real, nothing is true. And some of the citizens of Eidolon City are actually its creators. And they have other lives. Because they are dreaming, dreaming of this world whilst in reality they lie in comas, throughout the world. And maybe, eventually, one day they will wake up - if they can find their way out. The escape routes are there, if they find them. If they can realise the truth.

If they even want to.

But what would they be leaving behind? Because this world is there, and they have lives. And not everyone can wake up - because some of the people there are not dreamers at all. Some of the people are figments of the collective dream and imagination, needed aspects of the world, taken from ideas and concepts, characters and mythology. There would be so much to leave behind.


So, what do you want from a game?
The simple, or the more complex - it works both ways.

You are Mackenzie Quinn and you've been on the run for the last two years. Ever since you woke up from that accident and realised that you made everyone around you go nuts. You don't mean it, you don't want it - you'd just like to be a normal 16 year old girl, but nobody asked you what you wanted.

AN ORIGINAL SUPERNATURAL GAME

Civilisation is on a downward spiral. The weird is on the rise.

Governments are in panic, cities have fallen. Everything seems to be crumbling.

But yet life must go on. The only choice is to adapt, or die. And death is no choice at all.

Available:
Angels, demons, dreamwalkers, elementals, fades, fae, half-demons, lycanthropes, psychic vampires, psychics, spirits, vampires, witches.

Something for everyone, friendly players, plot-driven environment.

Join today!


WHAT'S YOUR REALITY?

It's a time where the mafia has taken hold of a city, where the local government is just as corrupt as the crime families that pay them off. There's the upper class that glitter with diamonds and luxury, and the lower class scrapes by for food and shelter. It's a place where there are the highest highs, and the lowest lows, and little in between.

Welcome to Eidolon City, a place where dreams come true and go to die in the same breath. A place where heroes and villains are constantly viying back and forth for power. Everyone needs those figures, those from the collective unconscious to commend or condemn.

We're looking for new blood in an established game with friendly, active players! There are many characters wanted, so check out our wanted character pages! We're specifically looking for more mafia members, some of the higher ups in the organizations and families. We'd also like seeing more hospital staff, reporters, business owners, and homeless.

The end of the world is no longer nigh - it's already here...


All around the world, society seems to be falling apart, civilisation crumbling. The modern world is tearing itself apart under the weight of a reality it has denied for so many years. The reality that the supernatural does actually exist.

It exists and some of it is actively aiding that downfall as people wake up for find that they're voted demons into office, that their laws and structures were made by the things that really do go bump in the night. Mob rule has taken down some places in the world, and global communications are failing quickly.

But some areas are holding out, trying to keep it together. Communities who are standing side by side, willing to fight to preserve their way of life. But what is their way of life? Who gets to decide that? And does 'supernatural' automatically mean bad?

What do you think?
