Kindness coupled with deception. The city is under the control of the Patin Society, a group of powerful magically endowed aristocrats who use their seemingly kind and charitable acts to control the city's government.

This is a time of monopolies and barons. Deep in the earth, the fossilized remains of magical plants have become a fine dust, which can be used to boost ones' magical abilities like never before. The rich are the richest they've been in history and the poor/magicless are ignored and exploited. The line between the classes is cruel and sharp.

But in this city, the Patin Society helps the disadvantaged. Like olden times, magic users grant wishes to help people move through society. They give poor magic users free dust to get them on their feet. However, there is a catch.

Every person, every business the Patin Society helps must vote for the politicians the Patin Society specifies. In other words, through charity, bribes and the like, the Patin Society has a choke hold on the city's government. They control businesses, policemen, anything they can buy and the woman on top of it all, the Fairy Godmother is using her power to embezzle millions of dollars from the city's funds.

To stay on top, the Patin Society is known to strike at rival political parties with slander and violence. Under the seemingly caring persona of the Patin Society, murder and blackmail are rampant. It's kill or be killed in this great old city, and the righteous are few and far between.

So, are you a corrupt Patin Society boss? A minion? A rival politician or an average joe hell bent on exposing the government's corruption? Or more importantly, what fairy tale character are you going to spin off? 'Cause, ya know, that's what this rp is about.

Frankly friends, this rp is a twist on fairy tales. Try to humanize any character you plan to use, and think of them in the context of the story. If you need any help visualizing this world, read about Boss Tweed. The setting is a mismatch of historical periods. Castle like sky scrapers, primitive guns, horse and carriage... [NOOOPE] will provide some concept sketches. To help you get the idea, here's a list of fairy tale characters and suggestions about how they can be characterized > BMAFD Suggestions.

Character Applications must be sent to [Crankychangeling] for review. Please don't be offended if you are not accepted. We are going to be very picky. This is a very complicated story so don't get frustrated. We are sorry and appreciate your effort.

HEY BUDDIES! Ok, so school is over for both me and M and things have regressed back into normal life. I now have time to devote to this lovely project, thus I am reopening it. YEY! Oh, I also think I'm going to reopen the rp for new people to join. If you know anyone that is a good rper send them over. I'll leave it open for about a week and then it will be closed to new people. So let the magically enhanced fun begin.....again.

[NOOOPE] and I will be picking up the unclaimed characters as NPC's. If anyone already in the game wants to do the same, thats great. Just please let me know.

2008-03-24 [NOOOPE]: Gonna have to make some characters and throw them by crank. If she likes them, you can certainly join.

2008-03-25 [Crankychangeling]: Yup, just send me a character app. within the next couple of days, and I'll give it a read.

2008-03-25 [Rice]: Ok thankyou.

2008-03-25 [Crankychangeling]: No Problem. ^_^

2008-03-26 [Crankychangeling]: Last Day for new people sending character apps.

2008-03-26 [Rice]: Ok, i will send you mine in a few hours.
I am writing out the character now.

2008-03-27 [Crankychangeling]: First posts will be up Thursday morning.

2008-03-27 [Crankychangeling]: Everyone. It might be wise for you to read along with most of the rp's even if your character is not in them. This is kind of like a story so a lot of things will end up tying together at some point.

2008-03-27 [kay-chan]: ...I have no idea where I'm supposed to be. ;___; Would Ella be housed in a mansion? She sure as hell wouldn't live in the poor side. I'm lost.

2008-03-28 [Crankychangeling]: Well, she works for the godmother The godmother would probably wanna keep her close, She might even stay in the patin society building. 

2008-04-16 [Crankychangeling]: Very Very important note under the "The notes from Cranks". Please read!

2008-04-17 [kay-chan]: Oh, kk! I'm in the middle of a post, tho... I'll just finish that. >.>

2008-04-17 [Crankychangeling]: Thats fine. We'll pick it up when school gets out for me and M. Which is around the tenth of May. ^_^

2008-04-17 [Triola]: By late May I'll be in the middle of exams and not finished until the start of June, so my time on Elftown might be limited :/

2008-04-17 [Crankychangeling]: Thats fine. We'll work something out. 

2008-04-17 [Triola]: Great :) My characters can be off on... missions, or something :P

2008-04-18 [Crankychangeling]: Yupperoo. ^_^

2008-05-17 [Crankychangeling]: See note at top of page, my friends!

2008-06-09 [Crankychangeling]: Okay. I have been a terribly lazy GM lately, but life got in the way.  This rp really is not dead. So I'll be working the next few days to get it moving. Please, please feel free to update things because, after all it would be much harder to do this without you. ^_^

2008-06-09 [kay-chan]: I dunno, I posted on the page and I can't really do anything past that...

2008-06-09 [Crankychangeling]: Yeah I know. I need to update. Sorry, it goes along with my lazy GMing lately.
