    Alright I just had to make a joke on my favorite band Genesis, so the title was just something to be funny.

    @Miss Wood has been helping me rework this idea, I originally started it here and it went for some time, but then I realized it needed more than I was able to do with just one person. While I call a 21 page RP successful and it was, I am grateful it went that long. But something was missing, I don't know what it was but I think this particular idea serves best as group setting.

    So here it is. I've been working on this as a graphic novel since 2014, my daughter saw the third series of Once Upon A Time, and didn't like the way the whole Neverland, Peter Pan, Wendy deal play out. Granted she did like the idea of Peter Pan being a villain, she just didn't like everything else...so she asked me to do better justice. So I a couple of friends and I got together and began work...

    Right enough rambling...if anyone has seen Once Upon A Time, the Brothers Grimm Movie, any incarnation of the Twilight Zone, and Sin City, then you have a major leg up! If not no biggie it's a simple premise to follow.

    For sake of interest those that want to assist in this, can help come up with a name for this east coast city, bear in mind it's kind of "every city USA" type feel, so if you have things in your own hometown you can add them and it's not an issue.

    Imagine you thought you knew the famous tales you were told as children, were two things one very real and two well...not quite what you know. Sure the names are familiar but what they do is something entirely different, take Snow White and her seven dwarves, she's the mayor of the city and the dwarves councilmen on the city's board. Mulan owns a Chinese restaurant that the fortune cookies actually have fortunes that come true.

    Of course there havoc to be had as well, those mythological creatures such as the hydra, kraken, medusa, the minotaur, and more are all around. Even the Greco-Roman pantheon is here.

    So who helps deal with all the odd stuff this city endures? Simple, the famed sorcerer and his apprentice. Oh yes he also has a sister you'd be familiar with and well two very important women who have a score to settle with Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, Captain Hook, and his pirates...

    If I've not lost you yet...wow I must be writing something worth reading! Still two of us are going to jointly run this, and know this if there's something really awesome, it might just make it into the graphic novel---with whoever wrote it getting full credit...

    I'll put it out there that if anyone wants to do the skyline or go as far as outlining the city, you're free to do so. Just bear in mind, I am using a couple of cities I know as merely a basis (Arlington, VA and Calgary, Canada).

    But here's what I got from my kiddo and kind of what she wants to see...this isn't in stone, we can adjust as needed.


    Peter Pan's origins in this version was simple, he was formerly Peter Piper (from the famed Peter Piper picked a bunch of pickled peppers nursery rhyme), and a friend of Emrys (this is Merlin’s nephew and the sorcerer from the sorcerer's apprentice---hopefully we'll get someone to play the apprentice). Now that I know we're going with Wendy as the romantic interest...I'll be pinging @Miss Wood with a list of names to pick from.

    Now Peter didn’t like his lot in life being skilled at the pan flute and being stuck with his father’s pepper business in the city. As mentioned some of the pantheon of deities are in the city such as Hades, Odin, and even Aedian. So Peter wants something better than what he has, and the god Pan offers him a deal, eternal youth and guardianship of Neverland in exchange for secrets to the Unseelie (faerie, elf, fey) world. Since he knows Tinkerbell and the other faeries through Emrys, he agrees.

    But there’s a catch for both of them, since Emrys didn’t know what Peter was up to and Peter ended up youthful and guardian of Neverland, using Tinkerbell to get what Pan wanted, the pan flute that Peter has now which will work in a pied piper way and it is the source of his youth. Emrys gets punished by having to play guardian to the city and train the apprentice. He won’t be released from the duty until King Arthur returns.

    Now their bad blood, this will go through Peter’s jealousy:

    Wendy, Merlin arranges a marriage due to the Darling family’s connection to Neverland and the Unseelie Court. Peter holds Wendy hostage in Neverland while Emrys is locked in an urn for a time (determined by the start of the game). They clash because Wendy chooses Emrys and due to their past being what it was. The Lost Boys and Pirates are under Peter’s command in the city and Neverland. It will be Wendy saving Emrys as to how Hook loses his hand and has it replaced as a hook. Peter will get a firsthand taste of Emrys’ powers as well since he still views him as an apprentice. Now what I am thinking here is either have Wendy or Tinkerbell let Emrys out of the urn, but I would like other thoughts from everyone. Wendy and Emrys marital status will change after the Halloween ball, they are merely engaged to start, due to Merlin's arrangement.



    Other notes, this again is not in stone, but I ran this by Miss Wood, this what I got from my daughter, we can expand as needed. The only one I want in stone personally is Hades' note below:
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________

    -Sleeping Beauty (Aurora) owns a chain of furniture stores

    -Elsa is a bitch that is pissed off that Emrys didn’t have interest in her and has issues with Tinkerbell or Wendy having his favor. She wanted to have the famed nephew of Merlin as her own concubine.

    -Anna is a rich bitch, which made her money off of musicals.


    · Merida is still Emrys’ half-sister and at times his voice of reason (this hasn’t changed from the graphic novel, but whoever plays her has got to play off me or vice versa). Working on what powers or whatever she has.


    · Belle owns a florist chain.


    · Hercules owns gyms.


    · Megara is a businesswoman and successful corporate shark.


    · Hades and Persephone are close friends of Emrys and Wendy/Tinkerbell. What they do is best not asked.


    · Count Dracula is a curator of the local museum and one of the cultural elite.


    · Dr. Frankenstein teaches at a local college, the monster and Igor are with him.


    · The Pirates and Lost Boys are two separate “mafia” families under Peter, with Peter leading the Lost Boys and Hook leading the Pirates.


    · Rasputin is part of the Russian mafia in the city.


    · Geppeto is in the repair business.


    · Pinocchio is a paparazzi.


    · Hamish, Hubert, and Harris are Emrys half-brothers, they love Merida, but hate Emrys. They go out of their way to make things for him difficult.


    · Maleficent is Tinkerbell’s enemy aside from Peter. She’s based off “mom” from Futurama in that she’s a tycoon that appears all nice then is a real bitch behind the scenes.


    · The Mad Hatter and Alice run a casino called "Wonderland".


    · The Mulan cast owns a Chinese restaurant where the fortune cookies are accurate and a lost and found emporium.


    · Snow White and the Seven Dwarves are the mayor and her staff.


    · The “knights” of the round table will have their own personalities, I can tell you Lancelot is a lying con man, that’s a porn addict who has been in trouble for some incident that refers to a Puerto Rican woman (I leave this to the reader’s imagination). His son Galahad is a clergyman. Gawain owns the largest weapons collection in the city and works at city hall.


    · Robin Hood, Marian, Little John, Deacon Tuck, they are all leading citizens and donators to the cultural aspect of the city. Though Robin works hard to piss off the chief of police: Alan Nottingham (named for the late Alan Rickman). This can be expanded on---just a draft.

    Oh good, I am hoping the descriptions help.

    If there's anything where you live that you'd like the city to have (fast food places, stores, etc.) please don't hesitate to include it, I want everyone to have something they are familiar with and comfortable with posting.

    And multiple characters is fine. I'll be playing Wendy and deciding on a second but I'll list options as expressed by Macleod.

    1. The characters from Peter Pan

    2. The Arthurian characters (Declan is from this and the Sorcerer's apprentice)

    3. Merida and the three brothers, Fergus is optional.

    4. Demons (since we have a demon hunter)

    5. Snow White and the dwarves (mayor and citycouncil)

    6. Belle and the Beast

    7. Cinderella

    8. The Greek Pantheon and the creatures associated with their mythology

    9. Robin Hood and the characters associated there.

    10. Alice and Wonderland's cast.

    11. MUST HAVE Twilight Zone references (Serling, and the episodes)---this was deal I made to actually be allowed for RP with my friend).

    12. Any additional Disney/Faerie tale creatures or personalities that would fit.

    @Macleod. Do we have a limit?

    @Miss Wood, your limit is what you can manage character wise.

    I probably should add I am intending to let my daughter read some of this (aside from any sex scenes) since this really is all for her...I'll have an example character sheet up here soon.

    I am working on some of the districts if you will for the city, obviously there's old town, uptown, and the docks/port/bay portions. Each area's going to have it's own feel, but I am still working out fine points. I know I have to have a rather large park (kiddo) and neon district---this is like the clubs and casinos. (kiddo)

    If anyone wants to add anything I need to know sooner rather than later, cause once I start with the layout, it's going to go super fast with putting it all together...but feedback is always appreciated.

    More to come once I get a feel for the characters.

    Thought I'd add this as it's pertinent to the story line, but here's something to go off of in Serling's tower in the city. Now mind you Serling isn't a villain, he's just your typical eccentric person with money:

    Okay some people are driving me nuts, so I am going to input some more stuff I've been working at when I am given a moment of peace :yuck:

    Okay so the urn thing is done, the next step is going to be dealing with the famed cast from Alice in Wonderland, so I'll let @Miss Wood set up the meeting with Mayor Snow White, but that's the direction.

    I believe we've got her and the Hatter owning a casino now, so that could prove interesting, seeing as I have the Queen of Hearts as a mafia boss type deal (again subject to change).

    But I thought I'd list some of the "Mafia Families" of Emerald Star City and their goons.

    - Dorothy Gale, head of the Oz syndicate, she has a thing for ruby shoes and her goons are called the Lion, Tinman, and Scarecrow. Is known to be involved in the "Yellow Brick Road" drug trade.

    - Girgori Rasputin "The Mad Monk", Russian mafia head, fingers in many pots. Has a holy man feel to him, but piss him off and he comes up with creative methods of torture. Thinks he's quite the ladies man and is always trying bed various women. Though his eyes are almost hypnotic. Russian ladies and some typical beefed up Russians are his choice of goons.

    - Stromboli (from Pinocchio) typical Italian mafia head, is into theatrics with marionettes, typical fat man with a strange sense of humor. It's rumored he has people who cross him thrown into the wood chipper/carver after throwing them in cages. He's got some animated marionette's as his choice of goons.

    - Elsa turned to dealing with ice diamonds, still holding a major grudge against Declan for rejecting her advances and refusing her offer to sire the next line of wizards/sorcerers. Has been quite fond of freezing victims and leaving them in meat lockers. Olaf is her main goon.
