| Hemlock Valley is a typical American sub-urban small town. It is believed that Hemlock Valley is situated somewhere near the Dakota states. Within a short drive, others accessible places include shopping malls, university campuses, lakes, national parks and big cities. There are 4 seasons, but players are not required to date their threads.
Everyone has superpowers! Everything you read in mythology is true! Your neighbour could be an undercover agent or a comic book superhero! Though, not everyone believes it, and not everyone uses their powers. For any person, seeing a vampire walking down the street, is just a fairly normal sight in Hemlock Valley. Depending on who you ask, they would say it's a nightly creature who feeds on blood, though some others would say it's just a school kid dressed for theatrical performance.
There are those who are completely unaware and oblivious to the supernatural world that exists alongside daily life. There are some who have encountered such things but merely dismiss them as fairytale or newsreport, such as your typical parents. Then, we have those who use their powers to aid in their life like it's the internet, mostly millenials, though they keep it as a separate discussion from those who refuse to believe. Yet more dangerous still, are those who desire to turn Earth into a prized territory for their own agenda, whether through magic or technology.
The Hemlock Logbook is a book which records most information about supernatural creatures and powered individuals, though most adults treat it as fiction obviously. It is seemingly a magical book that updates itself and adds new pages of profiles whenever a new character enters the timeline. There are a few known bound copies in the town library, while the nearby university and skeptic fanclubs also stock a few copies of it. Limited editions of this logbook also exist within family generations as they are inherited.

| What is Hemlock Valley RP?
Hemlock Valley RP is a no-frills collaboration RP game, mixed social hub. The board aims to move away from certain aspects offered by other RP forums such as stringent RP requirements, non-inclusivity from staff and lack of creativity. We believe that there is something more to offer to players who are still searching for these features on other forums. Our motto here is: Stay as long as you want, leave whenever you must, come back whenever you can.
Though our genre is modern fantasy, we actually fuse multiple concepts into this board. We have supernatural elements for those who prefer to play non-human species in a small town setting, like characters from Vampire Diaries and Charmed. Our stories can also be more procedural with a series-like feel, such as Criminal Minds or NCIS. We also have action-thriller feels with the rule of cool just like your favourite moments in Disney movies or DC/Marvel comics.
What we are not: a dating site. In fact, we don't even have a shipper template. You can come here to make friends, but not to treat this place as writing practice for your next romance novel. We are also not a cartoon or anime/manga site, so while we do allow some suspension of disbelief, we do not have Looney Tunes or Dragon Ball levels of exaggeration.
Our forum also has other features in comparison to other forums. Read more http://hemlockvalley.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=2&st=0entry3.

So the teacher asked us to write an essay about games for English class today. How exciting! I easily finished it in less than an hour because the words came naturally, like I feel it's an ideal lifestyle. Sigh, mom and dad would never believe me though, but I know it's real!
I've seen fairies in the garden, runes glowing in the library, my bff conjuring flames, and sshhh, don't tell anyone, but I have actually used my telekinetic powers to secretly impress boys. Time to work on my SAT scores next. Maybe I will meet more fun people when I finally get to college.
