It’s been a while but wanted to post another Update!
We are continually learning and adapting and ironing out kinks. After experimenting with some fun sandboxy themes were are excited to announce our next Plot-Driven theme which is set to officially start on October 29th.
Shadows Over New York will be a 1920s, fully powered setting. You can read the full timeline page here: https://elseverse.aresmush.com/wiki/timeline:earth-son
The big apple in the 1920’s: a proliferation of illegal alcohol, smoke, jazz, and a certain lack of concern for the law. After all, the cops are in on it. The criminals are in on it. Hell, even the heroes ain’t all saints in this City. Day by day, it only seems to get a little darker, a little weirder, and a little less safe for those who try to only walk in the light.
There’s a well-known speakeasy for those of a certain nature, just a flight of steps down from a Manhattan subway entrance and a few blocks away from the Flatiron Building. They call it Limitless. A thing that will last no matter the change in the ever growing rush of the city.
It’s for the heroes, the villains, the cops who steal and the cops who rise above, to put aside their allegiances - at least for a drink.
Yet as the City grows darker, those who live at its fringes, both the highest peaks and the lowest lows, must come together to navigate a new threat beyond day to day crime and conviction. They must fight the shadows that threaten to swallow the city whole, a horror that has no name, no known origin, but creeps insidiously as a rat along a pipe. It wants to swallow the City.
It’s up to them to stop it. Or embrace it. One way or another, the City is never gonna be the same.
