In every metropolis, there are those searching for a dream. From the bustling commerce of New York City to the glamorous strip of Las Vegas, the inhabitants move with determination and hopelessness. There are no paths to follow, no maps given. This is a struggle for survival in a civilization willing to forget you, filled with wonderful and terrible stories of the privileged to the poorest. Though the prominent cities of the United States once served as destinations for the greatest opportunities, they now pale in comparison to a Californian city that had risen from rags to riches within a century.
Santa Verda depicts a world in which mortals and supernaturals intersect, or never do. The ideas of death personified, of shifting flesh, and the coveted divine remain legends, while Pride reigns over classes in the form of enslavement. Life goes on regardless if you’re ready or not. You are free to make your mark in the world or be forgotten, but one thing is for certain:
You are in the City of Truth, where skeletons don’t stay hidden.
We are a low/dark fantasy roleplaying environment. Our site’s overall theme is inspired by the “Western gothic” genre. Santa Verda is a populated city rife with luxury and squalor, with a strong religious past and Latin American roots; the rural areas are also steeped in violent history. We are inspired by atmospheres such as Silent Hill, Gotham, Vampire the Masquerade, Underworld, From Dusk Till Dawn, Breaking Bad, No Country for Old Men and others.
