"The Soiling of Old Glory" by Stanley Forman of the Boston Herald American, 1977 Pulitzer Prize Winner

TL;DR List
  • Modern-Fantasy setting. 2012-2013 United States.
  • Magic returns to the world.
  • Not Twilight or Harry Potter; this has darker political overtones because humans know about magic and various supernatural beings and are scared shitless and are freaking out. You know how people are in large groups, right?
  • In the United States, the government starts rounding up people with magic.
  • By Christmas of 2012, animals and plants, places and things, start to emerge; energy nexuses, mythical beasts, spirits even. Coincidentally, that's around the time the Mayan calendar ends. Some people say it's the end of the world, the Mayans point out it's just the end of an age. Whoever is right, people are freaking out.
  • The characters are interned at Nellis AFB's containment camp, similar to the way the Japanese were during World War II.
  • The characters will be forced to make some stark choices vis a vis retribution, justice, the law and nature.
  • Posting schedule is something like once a week or faster, depending on how it works out, but I try to hold that 'once a week, minimum' rule to give time if needed.
  • Advanced Standards.
  • This RP was designed back in 2011, well before the current presidential campaign. Please don't try to translate this into a commentary on the immediate situation so much as a larger commentary drawn from more than a decade of watching it all slowly worm its way out.
  • Discord Chat here. Ask questions, collaborate, brainstorm!

I'll get an OOC up a little later. The honest truth is that I am starting this out in the holding camp, so it might do to have the characters in the same unit; they're probably housing most prisoners in air conditioned tents or something of that nature.

Oh, mind if I throw my interest in here as well? This all seems quite raw and... Real. I like it.

Warning - shy and reserved tendencies at first OOCly

In a sense, yes. Shadowrun, for example, is a setting where everyone makes their peace with the new reality. I prefer a setting that isn't nearly so settled or stable, where the variables are downright volatile.

I am back from a long break, and I would absolutely love to get on this.

Suess, you've always got the best setups, and everytime I see one of your games go up, I think 'I have to get in on this'.

Lemme look at the CS and wrangle something cool together.
