In Cardiff

If you've ever seen Doctor Who and/or Torchwood, you might know that Cardiff is a bit of an interesting place. We're not here to re-hash Whoniverse canon, we're not here to fight aliens, we're here to live... In Cardiff, where anything and anyone can turn up.

The thing about Cardiff - it's built on a rift in time and space.

[livejournal.com profile] incardiff is a panfandom, LJ-based roleplaying community which accepts characters from any and call canons, set in present day Cardiff. It is intended to be a low-intensity, high-quality game, with a minimum of fuss and drama. There are no scheduled, game-wide events, or contrived mod-plots-- just characters living, working, and interacting within the city.

The city in-game is a semi-realistic representation of the real-life Cardiff... With some inclusions from Doctor Who canon-- such as the Rift. As per the canon, Cardiff is situated on a "Rift"-- a fictional tear in space and time, one end of which is located in Cardiff Bay, Wales, with the other end floating freely through space-time. Matter and radiation can pass through the Rift, allowing extraterrestrial and extratemporal artifacts, and occasionally life-forms, to "wash up" in Cardiff.

It is described as being 'a gateway for alien creatures, weapons, technology and time anomalies to enter our world'. This means any character from any canon could conceivably arrive in-game, and it provides an interesting backdrop for an RP, since characters can find, interact with, or experience almost anything they choose.

Have a fantastic life.

It's a cold, dark night in New York City. The ground is wet from the evening rain, but the sky is now cloudless. You walk along the sidewalk, pulling your coat more tightly against your arms to protect from the sharp wind that's blowing. You hurry past a pack of homeless men, smoking cigarettes and downing bottles of beer in the alley.

A few blocks more and you hit your first patch of prostitutes. They eye you from the street corner even as you avoid their gazes. There's sex and sin on their skins and you bypass them as fast as you can.

But this is New York City. You know that there are lowlifes everywhere and if you've missed poverty and sex, there's death and greed waiting just around the corner.

You can hear the sounds of Manhattan beginning to covalesce around you and soon you see all of Manhattan spilling out every which way. It's been a long walk from where the taxi dropped you off, but you live in Brooklyn, not Manhattan, and you can only afford so much for a night of fun.

It hasn't been so bad, anyway, and you adjust your clothes as you spy the night club ahead of you. This is what you've been waiting for all week.

As you enter the club, you hear the last refrain of a familiar song.

So just lay your head down low, and don't let anybody know
That it's hard to live, yes it's hard to live in

The City.

Inside the club, everyone's waiting.
