Direwood is a town of supernatural beings, namely werewolves and vampires of folklore. The town has mysterious origins, the founders themselves being something other than human. While both factions, consisting of the local pack and coven, are in relative peace, forces are at work that may spell trouble for the town.

Founded in the 1860s, Direwood, Wisconsin began as a small town prospering from lumber. Its founding families, most of whom were foreign immigrants, consisted of the Lyall, Faolan, Voros, and Fabian families, who all worked together to make their home town thrive. The Lyalls and Faolans were werewolves, while the Voros and Fabian families were vampires. Now in 2012, the inhabitants of the town find they are not too different from their predecessors.

Read the rules, because you will not be accepted if you do not.


1. Please remain active! If you will be absent from the story, please inform the crew or myself so we can progress ahead of you, or if the role is vital enough, take on a temporary/permanent replacement. I understand that you have your own lives.
2. If you haven’t already noticed, we’re entitled to follow Gaia Online’s rules. It’s their site!
3. If or when you have new ideas, things like new locations, don’t be afraid to share. It’s our story, and as such, your creativity is appreciated always. I’m willing to listen, though please use common sense.
4. Romance and drama is encouraged always, though if things get too nasty, be considerate and time-skip.
5. Don’t god-mod! It includes auto-hitting or controlling other characters without the user’s permission.
6. Let’s keep this semi-literate and above. I’m not expecting fifteen paragraphs all the time, but at least put some effort into your submission so other writers have enough to work with. I’d say five sentences is the bare minimum for a post.
7. If you’d like to join, put the word blood into your join request so I know you actually read the rules. Include a sample of your writing at the length of a paragraph (unless I invited you or already know).
8. Do not begin posting until your character has been approved by myself or the crew.
9. Do not speak out-of-character too often in the story. It’s okay occasionally, but there’s a thread for that.
10. When quoting other people to notify them that you’ve replied, don’t quote their entire post.
11. No, there is no limit to the amount of characters you can have, just as long as you keep up with them.
12. You are expected to be respectful of other role-players. It’s common courtesy towards others.
13. Please include a date and time if you're introducing a setting on a thread. It helps to organize things chronologically.
