  • London is safe - more or less, I think. Monica and I are free of Jassim’s and Enkindu’s direct intrusion and influence upon us, Paris and Lena have broken the curse - we think - and have the time now to love and be with each other without fear of...

  • Director,   I cannot say I disagree with Hogan-Howe’s reinstatement. From what I know of him and learned from his file, he was as competent a director of IS as could be expected. We do not necessarily have the time to investigate Sullivan thoroughly enough to allay my concerns. However...

    About this game

    The gods of Ancient Greece cast shadows across London. As they did in ancient times, the gods today do many strange things that mortals would not be allowed to do. Perched precariously between gods and mortals, heroes and monsters of the present shape the evolution of myths from the past.

    In London, the Invisible World is controlled by four major Circles:

    1. A secret government agency known as “I.S.” that the other Circles have empowered to police the other Circles; they're based in  Scotland Yard 
    2. The Underground, a network of outcasts, hunters and informants that guards the city’s places of power by night and control the London Underground 
    3. The Pillars, a cultish organization of knights and wizards that maintains the city’s places of power by day and meets in an inner hall of Temple Church that is visible only to the enlightened 
    4. Enkidu Ltd., a mysterious corporation that brokers intangibles like beauty, power and immortal souls from the non-existent 88th floor of The Shard, which is the tallest building in Europe.


    Rules can be found here.
    We will be using version 1.1

    This may be the easiest way to get in touch with everyone.  I set up a game on Sunday March 30th, it's a one shot and I'm offering it to you all first since we were gonna play that day, for anyone  that's available.  


    Ready up and if you like it, just let me know, and you can sign up for it first.  You all have priority before I open it up to others.

    Hope to see you all Sunday!
