This wiki farm is largely related to the former chronicle and will be supplanted in time. Information on these wikis may refer to the old chronicle and no longer be relevant. The Reset Wiki is the temporary wiki for the new chronicle.

Due to the new website going live, the wiki login system is out-of-sync with the IoD user system. Usernames and passwords created before the 24th of May should be fine, but newer usernames are unlikely to work at present. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Isles of Darkness...

Welcome to the Isles of Darkness, a modern-horror live-action roleplaying group based in the UK. We run games across the country in an interconnected shared chronicle.

What does that mean?

That means that if you're in Edinburgh and you fancy heading down to London for a game, all you need to do is tell them you're coming - you can play your character in any game within the IoD. It also means that what happens in one game can affect what others. If your vampire starts a cult, someone else's mage might hear about it. If your werewolf starts a riot, then the changelings in the next city might find out soon. See the notes on the shared chronicle for more information.

What's this live-action stuff?

Live-action roleplaying (or LARP) is a form of gaming where instead of talking about what your character does, you dress up like them and act it out. It's a bit like freeform theatre - you decide what you're going to do, then do it!

What's roleplaying?

We like to call it "let's pretend" for adults. You remember when you were a kid, you'd play "cops and robbers" with your friends? Well, instead of playing cops or robbers, we pretend to be vampires, werewolves, mages, changelings, people brought back from the dead, and more. The way we do this is we make a character - we give them a name, a job, decide what they're good at - and then we bring them to life by playing them; just about anything is possible!

Where do I start?

First, find your nearest domain. Then, you can check out their page on the wiki, and find out who to contact. A list of all the officers is available, and you can find email details there.

Once you've found your local domain, you can start talking with your local storytellers about making characters.

If you don't have a domain close to you, you can always start one yourself, or you can play on IRC in the Online domain. The advantage of playing online is you don't need costume!

Importantly...

Importantly, the whole point is to have fun - so get in touch, get involved, and get ready for some of the best times of your life!

New Features

The wiki now has a Photos page where you can add links to your photo albums from events to share them with the society at large.

IoD General Wiki

This wiki is for OOC stuff. user pages, domain pages, game dates, general rules, anything that's not IC. If it's general enough to cover several genres, put it here.

Please note: At this time, do not add data to pages about factions (orders, covenants, etc), PC types (path, clan, etc), or sub-groupings (legacies, bloodlines, etc) that is either: A) copied from the books or B) copied from cam-wiki.org (which is mostly copied from books). Until we get clarification on fair use of WW text, it runs the risk of this site being shut down.
