Welcome to Never Cry Mercy, an AU shadowhunters/the magician's forum roleplaying site! We have taken and combined the settings of both shows, so while it can be useful to know them, you don't necessarily have to. We are a no-canon, original storyline only site, meaning that we do not allow canon characters of either setting/show to be played or made here.
While you may see recognizable faces, they are not the characters they portray in the show. The site is mostly player-driven storytelling, but occasionally throw up events, mysteries, and other exciting activities to push the narrative. We are set in present-day New York City, so dive in and join us today!
All the fairytales are true. Faeries, werewolves, vampires, magicians; you have probably passed them in the streets and just didn't see. Unnoticeable for the common mundanes, the so-called Shadow World exists right alongside the world we all know. The Shadowhunters are the ones who were put into this world to keep the balance on earth and protect mundanes from the demons, the forces of evil. To the day they are fighting the never-ending battle between heaven and hell, right in front of everyone's eyes but invisible for the untrained eye.
How long can the apparent peace be kept?
The Christmas Spirit has come to the Downworld of New York in the form of a handful of select festivities including the Institute's Annual Christmas Ball and the Christmas Village. With the Void fairly quiet since their attack on Halloween where they blew up the New York Times building and exploded a magic bomb in Central Park that lowered everyone's inhibitions and landed many in a lot of hot water, but there have been stirrings of a different kind. Major character driven plots are threatening to come to a head, so stayed tuned!
