This is a roleplay about a group of creatures living secretly in a city when another group of creatures calling themselves Rogues come. There is no set path. You may choose between being an outcast, a rogue or a normal person.Only you can choose how this story goes. there is no set plot.

The Outcasts. : These are basically humans with some sort of powers or mutation. They have banded together and try to fit into normal lives with devices called Shifters which allow them to assume the appearance of a normal human for short amounts of time but most of them live full-time in a place they call The Nest. They can nly hope to lay low and survive

The Rogues: These are more like Shapeshifters. These creatures are half shadow half beast and all Rogues can shapeshift, including turning themselves into shadows. However their most common forms are huge demonic wolves. they will turn human if the need arises. These creatures are bloodthirsty and will destroy anything that gets in their way although their purpose for coming to the city remains unknown.
