a multifandom LJ-based RP
P R E M I S E
There is a space between all worlds -- a space that is not empty, but filled. Filled with nothing. Filled with everything. Filled with The Staircase. The Spiral.
This Staircase connects all worlds, all life.
To traverse the Spiral is to travel.
To die. To live.
Do not climb so high. Only choose to descend, and you will no longer tire. You will no longer want. You will come to Here. Come to Now.
Come to the Spiral City.
Here, the decadence is absolute. Everything you ever wanted. Every dark desire. Every sin.
Everything for a price.
How much will you pay to live?
B A C K G R O U N D
This is a place beyond worlds -- a place that connects everything, and behind every door, there is a new experience. All doors lead to Spiral. When you die, you leave your world, and when you want badly enough to leave, you come to Now.
This is the place where worlds converge.
You may travel the staircase all you want, but in the end, you will tire, and like an escalator, you’ll return.
You can never leave, but you can always explore.
And when in doubt, there’s always the City at her Center.
Think New York. Think Los Angeles. Think Gotham City.
The City is dark and grimy. It has no name. It needs no name. Chances are, you’ve heard of it. In your darkest dreams or your most fantastic nightmares. The City at the edge of nothing.
The sun only breaks through in filtered waves during the day, and at night, there are times that not even the street lights seem to make an impact on the absolute darkness. The City lies at the bottom of a staircase, but the buildings are so high, you can only just barely see the Staircase, stretching away. A replacement for the sky.
In the City, there are all sorts of things to be discovered. Dark secrets to uncover. New tales waiting to unfold. Be wary; the City is not safe, but better to brave her darkness, than whatever lurks in the Stairwell.
In the City's center, a building looms. It is almost omnipresent. No matter where you go in the City, you cannot escape its pull.
Right up next to the iron fence that surrounds it, the darkness of the City is thicker. You can almost taste it. There are shadowy figures moving behind the stained glass windows. Sometimes, they come outside, but no one ever sees their faces.
Note: Your character can get in the City by either opening a door from their world or by dying.
R U L E S
We don't have a lot of rules here, and most of them are pretty much common sense.
We do ask that if you're interested in applying and playing a character within Spiral, that you visit the Rules Post so you can familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations of the RP.
Breaking these rules can result in reminders, warning, conversations with mods, and/or (depending on the severity) dismissal from the RP. We want to make this fun for everyone, so unfortunately, rules do have to be put into place. Please read them in their entirety!
Alternatively, you can read our policy on out of character behaviour here.
