[close] This RP is based on a story written by me personally with copyright law in place. I'm attempting to create a saga and may even ask about using certain characters designed by creative people such as yourself. In this world, there are four linked realities; Mortaea, Heaven, Hell, and the dream world, commonly referred to as The Fade, which connects the realities to each other. Magic exists, though is restrained by where the energy comes from as well as consequences for certain uses.

[close] In a world where the only thing humanity knows is the truth, one group of people are trying their hardest to keep their own lives a secret. Living in the small town of Cyprus Hill can be pretty easy, if that's what you want it to be. The town is full of people from all ages, infant to elderly, but one age group overpopulates the town. This age group are the ages thirteen to nineteen... Teenagers. These kids are obedient, there isn't much of a between. Though, the catch about Cyprus Hill is quite a flip. No one lies. In another world, the majority of the teenage population says a lie daily, but here? The truth is always told, no one lies, everyone knows everything. The price for saying something that is false can result to prison or even execution. Except... One group of people are rebels. This one group consists of a few teenagers in Cyprus Hill, and these few teenagers aren't known well by the rest of the town. They live their lives in secret, keeping their whole existence to a minimum as they run around without a sound. This group of teenagers call themselves The Cryptic Secret. They believe that keeping things from each other isn't so bad. They are the ones that lie. They are the ones that run Cyprus Hill's black market. They are the ones that don't believe every bit of the truth is necessary. So.... Are you part of The Cryptic Secret? Or are you one of the 'Normals'?
