Shadowhunters MUSH



  • Not my game, but I figured people might be interested.

    Welcome to the Mortal Coil, a game based on the best-selling book series, Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, and the T.V. series Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments.

    Charged by the Angel Raziel, the shadowhunters have been protecting the mortal world for almost 1000 years against demonic attack. Besides being responsible for the human world, the Shadowhunters are the ruling entity of the Shadow World, a world of monsters and magic that exists alongside the mortal world, both separate and interwoven.

    Our game takes place in the fictional city of Hudson, New Jersey. Things have been remotely peaceful for some time now, but as 2016 ticks to an end, more and more demons are beginning to break through the wards that protect the human and Shadow World. To make matters worse more and more downworlders are coming up dead, their murders unexplained...and their people want answers! Is someone trying to threaten the accord, or is a much bigger threat rising from the ashes of the past?


    What do we have to offer? We currently accept: Mundane (average & sighted), Shadowhunters, Werewolves, Warlocks, Vampire & Faeries. We also have a fully coded character creation as well as a large IC grid, able to provide plenty of places for RP to happen. In order to support our own storylines, our game takes place on an alternative timeline, meaning our game is completely OC.

    We have just entered into Beta and looking for a few mature, responsible and experienced players who are interested in getting in on the ground floor and helping catch bugs and typos as well as test code while they RP.

    Interested? Check us out at:

    I cannot imagine what kind of technological and economic repression would be like in a world defending itself against an outside invasion for one thousand years. Sheesh.



  • Really doubt it's "invasion" in the sense of a "war" as we think of it.

    Pretty sure this would be like playing WoD and saying the world has been being invaded by vampires for 1000 years.



  • @Thenomain

    LOL. The world itself is none the wiser, from what I understand from the movie of the first book. It's like WoD or how demons are presented in Constantine, for example.

    @Thenomain As I have come to learn, you probably were the only one to have that interpretation that statement, thus you have the problem... At least that's the impression I'm given by the game.

    What problem?


  • Coder

    That you misread or misunderstood their implication.


  • Coder

    @Seamus

    Okay? I'm certainly confused about the intention or implication of your statements.


  • Pitcrew

    Apping here, however I do kind of wish I had a buddy to parabatai with because that would rock socks.

    @Cupcake

    Help me remember: parabatai?



  • @Ganymede
    A lifetime, oathbound battle partner, regardless of gender.

    @Bobotron

    Ah, right. Yeah. Now I remember.

    They're on the restricted list. I do love me some urban fantasy. I have to read the first book quick to see if it's of interest.

    The restriction is on couples who are parabatai. My understanding is that parabatai ate forbidden from entering romantic relationships with one another, despite the close "love" bond that they form.

    Ah, okay. Like I mentioned, no idea about the theme. Just happened to notice that word on the restricted list. About 1/3rd of the way done with the first book and it's not bad. Still waiting to encounter any Downsiders to see what they're like.


  • Pitcrew

    Yep, I'd want a GRRL Power parabatai, plus I also get to completely reimagine my character's Shadowhunter bloodline and I am more or less going to town with that with Razzle's blessing. Everything I've pitched he's been cool with, so far.



  • Oh, yay. The show is on On Demand. I have till the end of the month to watch season 1.



  • Okay, I'm Cade. Hit me up for RP.


  • Pitcrew

    I'm playing Naomi Morgenstern. I'm looking for more Morgensterns.

    Hit me up here, or on the game.

    Important Note: We are NOT the canon Morgensterns.


  • Pitcrew

    How sunk would I be knowing absolutely nothing about the setting except for having read the first book a million years ago with my horribad memory? It interests me as an RP setting, but I had a hard time with reading the book. ^^
