Welcome
September Featured RPG


"And the Dreamer Dreamed of Mutants" is an original superhuman RPG with a hybrid narrative and sandbox style. This means that, in addition to an on-going often reality warping board-wide plot that you, humble members, can influence through your character's actions, we also adore the more personal inter-character plot and give you free-reign to explore our unique setting.

We are rated 2-1-1 (or PG-13) and welcome all, no matter who you are or where you come from.

The year is 1946.

It’s the night of the 19th December.


An allied military transport flying supply runs into war-torn China finds a young girl of 8 wandering the eastern Himalayas. While they couldn’t be certain what she was doing there, it was clear to them she needed help.

She was tired and weak and when she eventually fell asleep in a British Royal Air Force base in India, she couldn’t be woken.

Codenamed the Dreamer, she was quickly transferred to a top secret base somewhere in the US.

Fast forward to 1970s.


“It is clear now that the Dreamer is no ordinary child. She should by all accounts be a 32-year-old woman, yet looks no older than 16… Still she sleeps…“

Those were infamous words of one Dr. Stein just moments before the Dreamer woke up. No one knows exactly what happened next. Stein simply stopped existing and the girl fell back to sleep once more.

That day in 1971 is now considered the turning point, the day when reality itself was altered.

1% of all children born since the Dreamer last woke were born different.


For lack of a better term, they were dubbed mutants in part due to their unique triple helix DNA. It wasn’t until that first generation hit puberty that the true extent of the situation revealed itself. They had power, special abilities, the potential to become real life superheroes.

The Year is 2014.


Mutants are now a significant part of the world’s population. Most of the world’s governments have countermeasure in place to protect against evil mutants. While no country on Earth wants to discriminate against them in any official capacity, life is not easy.

The general consensus is that trouble follows mutants like a plague. Very few people trust them.

But not all hope is lost.


Professor Alvin Stein, the only son of the unfortunate Dr. Stein, has devoted his life to continuing his father’s work.

In order to protect the world from the less savoury of mutant kind, he set up the Foundation. Their mission is to 1) find and contain all threats and 2) research mutants.

But the Foundation isn’t alone.

Many private companies jostle for control. Some see mutants as the saviours of humanity, or a menace to be wiped out. Some see them as a means to an end, and would use them as the tools of war. Many of these companies are so well funded that world governments must be involved, but no one is willing to own up.

And through it all, mutants are trying to live their not so average lives, unnoticed.

“The Dreamer is considered a Warper under the New Classification of Mutants (NCoM-14). She is perhaps the most powerful to ever exist and indeed the oldest known mutant alive today.

"How old is she really?

“Despite everything we know, it's still impossible to say that she’s the creator of the Homo superior race. There is no data available to confirm that with any amount of certainty. All we really know is that one day the world was normal, and the next she stopped dreaming and everything was different.

“If I know anything at all, it’s my professional opinion that we keep her dreaming. The first time she was awake we were in the throes of world war two. The second time, she killed my father and we got mutants. Who knows what’ll happen if she goes three for three.”


- From Professor Alvin Stein's keynote speech on "The True Nature of the Dreamer".
