"There once was an ocean of red.
Where the waves hit, death would spread.
Warriors of remarkable skill,
There's no monster that they couldn't kill.
You ought behave as you should,
Lest you dare to face a Red Hood.

"But times, they do a-change.
What was once weird is now far less strange.
The ocean of red has dried.
The Hoods either hid or died.
The killers of killers are gone
But the killers, themselves, live on.

"In the darkness, there is a great stirring.
Reality, itself, is blurring,
An evil power destined to return
To watch the world and its creatures burn
You can feel it in the air, the awful dread.
It's time to don the hood. Make sure it's red."


The Red Hoods saga started with The Red Hoods: Initiates. A squad assembled by Commander Blanchette Rouge, the original Red Riding Hood of lore, The Red Hoods were a team of monster hunters comprised of humans and monsters alike, unified to take on the creatures of darkness.

This was over 300 years ago.

These days, the Red Hoods are long gone. As a clause of peace between Man and the supernatural creatures of the world the Hoods were forcefully disbanded. While some Monsters were able to join society, there are still plenty who find civility impossible. Dark creatures of hate and instinct still lurk in the shadows and there is an even greater threat amassing, an Evil never seen before. Perhaps it's time to bring the Red Hoods back from death. Perhaps its time for a Rebirth.

The Red Hoods: Rebirth will be a narrative based RPG. It will begin on October 20th next month. Players will be able to pick from a variety of races with a variety of skills.

This RP will be borrowing several concepts from things like the movie Bright and the series Carnival Row with a central theme being human and mythical creatures living together in the modern age. Prejudice, social inequality, fear, horror, crime and mystery will all be points that will be touched upon within the game while we discover our characters and how they fit in this world.

Several players from the original game are set to return. These will be the only character that will start out as Red Hoods. If you haven't played before then your character is initially unaffiliated. That's not to say your character can't start out as a vigilante in their own rights. The flip side of that is that you can absolutely make a character that has no fighting prowess at all if you feel you can stay interested in it and make sure the character still fits in the world.

Magic will be possible but it'll be limited and have its tolls. It's a modern world with modern technology. If the technology exists now, it exists in the game. As we get closer to the start date, I will periodically update this thread with more pertinent system, world and lore information. I just wanted to go ahead and dip my toe in the water to see what kind of pool of interest there would be to join.

Thanks and stay tuned!

@RedVII I have been reading the Initiates RP for a while now, so I would love a chance to join the sequel. Would it be okay if I created a human that hails from an old bloodline of Hoods??

By the way, our discord server is already set up from the previous game. If you'd like to get to know me and our previous cast before we get down to the nitty gritty, feel free to DM me for the invite.

Hey @REDVII, you magnificent Bastard! I actually find myself at a time when I have no Roleplays going on. I can wait until October 20th. I actually have an Orc character from Blight universe. I may be able to resurrect him for this. He was a US Army veteran, but I get the impression, your world will be a fictional one. Still in. Hello @Xandrya.

Hey there :) I know I'm not Red lol, but I do actually know the answer to that last question there haha. It's very much going to be a modern version of the fictional world the last RP was in, so not the US. I'm sure there's armies and stuff in the world though, so it'd probably just be specifics you'd have to change around (although that really is something to discuss with Red)

Hello, @Gunther. Looking forward to RPing with you again. May I suggest you make the Orc a Navy SEAL if you go such route? He'd be more badass... ;)

Sorry I haven't been as attentive on here as I should be due to some offline events.

I love that interest is growing and, given that, I want to put out a cautionary reminder that anyone can apply, but please keep in mind that this game is not meant to be too big and there will be a selection process such as there was with Initiates. That said, we have almost a month to try and get details hashed out. I'm working to get the OOC up as soon as I can and we're still crafting some of the more specific lore. As soon as I get that fleshed out and posted, character submissions will be welcome and we'll start the selection process.

Thanks everyone!

I was invited to make a character for this, and I'll go ahead and do that.

Thanks @RedVII for the opportunity, 👍.
