A Brent Weeks AU Modern Fantasy
Welcome Hello, and welcome to Black Prism. We are an alternate universe, modern fantasy roleplay based off of the high fantasy novels written by Brent Weeks: the Night Angel and Lightbringer series. We are a player-driven community that strives for a welcoming environment where players feel comfortable contributing ideas towards the development and progression of this universe. We would consider ourselves intermediate to advanced, but we welcome all levels of roleplayers as long as they continue to grow as an RPer, that is--after all--the whole point, right?
Black Prism has adapted these novels/universe in such a way that reading them is not required to join in on the fun, so even if you've never heard of Brent Weeks and his highly imaginative universe, please feel free to join us! Even if it's only for a little while.
Magic exists in multiple forms here in Lochstone, Washington--a fictional city--and there is tension rising between the two ruling bodies of this expansive city: the Sa'Kage and the Chromeria. The latter hides in the light, shining brightly for the world to see the facade they shape while the former hides in blatant shadow and embraces the corruption they represent. Each want full dominion of Lochstone and all of its inhabitants.
Please see the 'Embark' section for more in-depth/detailed information or feel free to chat us up in the chatbox if you have any questions or simply, if you just wanna chat.

A little late but the announcement is here. This month brings two big plots, a new class reveal, and lots of aesthetic updates! With always more to come!! Black Prism loves you, keep enjoying us and we'll keep things going for you!
While we unfortunately had to cancel the class release this month (or rather pushed it back to March), we did do a smaller version of the intended Cupid's Carnival. We have averted the Imgur Crisis and added a cutsie banner to showcase our wanted ads, inspirations and events! Thanks for being a big part of our lives!
Holy poop! A new year! This month we bring you an announcement that tells all about the new class, upcoming misc. sub-classes, site updates such as the removal of the "spotlight" feature and so much more! We have two new skins since December did not debut with one Storybook Ending featuring Paige Bradley and Jaxon Press made by our very own Marie -- and Let It Snow, a hat-tip to our new annual December event!
So, we understand you're just dropping in to either Link Back because we've advertised on your site, or to drop us a line of your own, but why don't you stick around for a bit and take a look around? Even if you don't stay with us, maybe you could offer us some suggestions on how to attract more members in our guest friendly area (or even in our cbox provided you don't advertise there)!

FOA: Four months since the Forgotten Ones Attack, and Lochstone more or less remains still in silence undisturbed...How long will it last this time?
FOA: City fully restored and healed it seems from latest Lochstone attack, but people are still weary.
FOA: Many people are still without homes since the attack, or are left scarred, scared and broken. The last of funeral calls ring however, spring brings healing...all hope.
Tensions remain bubbling in the South as the profitable high from the city attack is slabbing off finally as the city is on the mend.
Graduation from the High Chromeria is just around the corner, the Sending just around the bend.
It's Musical Chairs High Spectrum style! They really have a hard time keeping Council members don't they? The Orange, The Black, The Blue, who's next?!
Warmer weather, warmer tempers. The Shinga's Block Party ended with the man near strangling another until would be victim was escorted away...More info inside.
Rumors abound of once more troubles in paradise for Julian Silverlin as witnesses confirm it was Jake Epson who pulled aside a man from the party that Julian attacked.
Prism Luxlord Jaxon Press appears to be a bit worn down as of late maybe even ill, and Paige Bradley obviously affected. Speculations arise.
The Superviolet throws a fantastic charity awareness event where several fellow Spectrum figures support with enthusiasm along with many wealthy donors.
Spring brings baby showers! The Orange is pregnant?! And in love? Photo's of Luxlady Orange with a rugged man as they sit in the sun to soak up the heat, and we see a baby bump! Who's the daddy?!
LPD (Lochstone Police Department) complain to the High Spectrum that there is a rising death count in the city, blame thrown at Meisters occur and Spectrum inability to contain them...More inside.
Older male reported to be seen munching on person, rabid shapeshifter? Cannibalizing Fata? Zombies?! Witnesses cannot confirm the nature of the sighting except to say it was horrifying.
Local artist Dionysus Ganymede shared to Instagram a picture of the Shinga alongside a man with unmentionables painted onto his face. No reports on who the man was. Is this a new form of punishment by the infamous Shinga?
The Green is to sponsor an upcoming charity event at a gallery, she never fails to give her support to citizens of Lochstone.
It happens every year, yet this time people are ravenous in gossip about the Sending. It's the Spectrum culling 'monsters' of society right? After so much devastation people want a justice, a cleansing they can cling to.
Cityscape was made for Black Prism exclusively by Delphi. Many people were helpful during this process and many of them have been added to the Credits section in the banner. Cityscape may not be duplicated or replicated without expressed consent from Delphi.
