    Information

    Welcome to Sinsomnia, an AU, mature RP site inspired by the Antia Blake series. We have been open for over two years and boast a welcome, talented community of writers and an active, exciting site.  

     

    Sinsomnia is based in present-day New York City where lycanthropes, shapeshifters, vampires, psychics, witches, and other species both born human and not make up the preternatural community. It's been over two decades since the Supreme Court judge, in the case of Addison v Clark, declared vampires legal citizens of America and entitled them to the same rights as the living. Following vampires being declared legal the preternatural world had a new light shed on it and many states revoked varmint laws which made it legal to kill lycanthropes regardless of reason. It's true that many citizens still actively protest the rights of vampires and lycanthropes still face discrimination in life and the workplace but in the growing years, acceptance of those living in the preternatural community is becoming widely met with acceptance or, at the very least, tolerance.

     

    On Sinsomnia we always try and keep things interesting; along with player driven plots we also have board wide plots curated by the staff open to the entire site to participate in, group events run by the leaders of those groups, monthly contests for you to enter to win prizes, and a store where you can spend the points you earn from posting on powering up new or existing characters. 

     

    Familiarity with the Anita Blake series isn't necessary (the majority of our current members haven't read the books).

    This is a great site to be apart of. The community is very welcoming, the staff is very understanding and active and the characters and their plot lines are amazing to be a part of.  The way things are handled on both an IC level and an OOC level makes you feel comfortable to be a member there.

    Sinsomnia staff are some of the best staff I've ever had the pleasure of working with and beside, as well as being a regular part of a site beneath them. They are quick to respond, fair, and non-biased in every decision they make. Sinsomnia itself runs like a well oiled machine, events are scheduled, sign ups are handled, and everything runs like clock work. I've never had a complaint about the mechanics of this site. While there is a large amount of informational threads, many of them are on a 'need to know basis', which basically means if you're not making that species you don't really need to inform yourself on them. That being said, having never read an Anita Blake novel, nor played in that realm before, I was pleasantly surprised to find there was PLENTY of information in an easily understood form that I never had to look anything up. 

     

    Not to mention I have a nasty habit of asking about ten thousand questions every single time I make something new, and they never once expressed exasperation with the amount of questions, even if they were redundant. 

     

    On another note, the members tend to be the type to be all inclusive. For the most part you don't get the feeling you're walking in on a clique here, even though a lot of them have been RPing together for a number of years. They welcome you, talk with you, plot with you, and, yes, will RP with you without hesitation. I've never felt left out here when it comes to the usual member base, and if you ever do all you have to do is open your mouth and say something, and they will do everything they can to make sure that is never the case again.

     

    Sinsomnia is worth a look, it's also worth the join, worth the time writing, and worth the time getting to know the people...because some of them are the most amazing, loving, kind, caring, and talented people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    I've just recently joined but I've known the staff (Samantha & Sakaira) for years and have had the pleasure of RPing with them before Sinsomnia but overall, the members are incredibly welcoming and they don't make you feel as if it's just one big clique like some other sites might do. The array of characters on site give a newbie a LOT to chose from when trying to find someone to thread with. Species are not a whole lot but enough that one can not only plan one character, but you can plan far into the future if you like. I'm already doing that. My favourite by far has to be where you're allowed to create a character concept. While I've yet to participate in one of their events but just hearing about it sounds like a blast and I am looking forward to that very much as well as what sort of situations I can throw my character/characters into. 

     

    Most importantly, you are never pressured to do something you don't want. The staff will find a way to make your idea work!

    Hands down, I can easily say that Sinsomnia has been one of the most welcoming sites I've come across while I've been at this RPing malarkey. Joining a new site, especially when you're not familiar with the background lore that it's based on, can be daunting but the staff and members are friendly, helpful and inclusive. Not having read the books, the guides are in-depth and detailed - and if there's ever any doubt, questions are encouraged.

     

    Scheduled events and board-wide plots help keep things fresh and from getting stagnant - and the member-driven input is amazing. In a similar vein: the little, more personal plots are equally well played-out and there's no lack of people to play with (if I've not threaded with someone yet it's only because of my personal limitations on how many threads I can handle at a time).

     

    It also helps that the site looks fabulous!

    I have not been on a public role playing site for a really long time, choosing to remain in private forums with close friends I'd made when I first started role playing. However, circumstances changed and it meant that my friends couldn't write as often and I felt a longing to get back into the world again. In honestly, I was just looking for a supernatural roleplay site, which seemed to have decent writers and a good word count and I stumbled upon Sinsomnia on a topsites website. 

     

    I joined the site when it was relatively new, probably only a couple of months and I have never received a warmer welcome than from there. From the start people have always been up for helping you make your character plots work, or finding a way for them to work if it might not be conceivable. And there is so much imagination that sometimes it can feel overwhelming. I'm not restricted in the way I think, but rather encouraged if it might not be possible to do it how I originally wanted to do it to try another way (which does ultimately become a better plot if I'm honest!) 

     

    The best thing I found was that regardless of me not reading the Anita Blake books it has never been a hindrance; there are enough players to help keep the canon where its canon but because of the setting there is no need to. Not to mention the in-depth guides that explain absolutely everything you need to know about species and bloodlines and even terminology. But also that the staff have always been on the ball to answer questions if there was something I felt I didn't understand in the guide. 

     

    The other is the constant updating and changes; many sites become stale because they keep it the same all the time and I become bored. But the plethora of events combined with even things like introducing a wider board so that those who are HTML inclined to make tables for their graphics wider a better choice of sizing. (And for those that are not there are plenty of coders and graphics makers who will make one for you to use!) 

     

    The community is forever welcoming, I have never felt unwanted in Discord server, and I have always found people willing to plot and write with me. Whether its serious plots or even just kind of funny ones, there doesn't seem to be a challenge that someone won't take. The site is worth a look, definitely worth a join and a hit up in the discord server!

    I had been lurking a little on Sinsomnia before I officially joined. It grabbed my eye, so whatever guide that was available to me as a guest, I was all over it. After I finally joined Sinsomnia and Discord, I was not disappointed. I have yet to see a chat that was as active as the Sinsomnia Discord server. And there's loads of activity on the actual site as well. You have options, you have opportunities to work your way up and develop your characters. I love it on Sinsomnia, and frankly, the site has been the longest RP home I have had.

    This is one of the most unique Anita Blake inspired rp forums I've come across. It has fascinating board wide plots while also encouraging and supporting personal character development as well in whichever and however you want to journey with your character. You'll never be bored and you will be welcomed from the get-go!

     

    The members are enthusiastic and excited. Why wouldn't they be? The chances to thread are there, you'll never find yourself sitting in the shadows trying to find a way in, far from it. You will be encouraged and supported and will find it near impossible to walk away from for very long.

    Good Anita Blake are far and few between in our amazing rpg world - Sinsomnia is one of the good ones! 

     

    Friendly staff and helpful community equals the ability to really craft that amazing character and storyline you’ve always thought about making as you read the books! 

     

    Great site that’s hold true to that LKH feel and still manages to be unique and different from the rest!

    Sinsomnia is an amazing site.  They have events for different species on site, and board wide plots that are open to everyone but are never mandatory. But even if you don't participate in those, all the members are exceptionally friendly and willing to answer questions, plot with you to make your own storylines and make you feel welcome. Honestly, I've gotten a lot more plot and play here than I have in quite a while and right from the beginning.  I love it here and don't see any reason to leave. Stop by and see for yourself.

    Sinsomnia is a wonderful site run by a dedicated amazing group of staff and with a community of inclusive and fantastic writers.  No sooner had I joined that people had reached out welcoming me, assisting in any questions I might have, and looking for ways to RP with my characters.  They have a diverse group of species one can play while maintaining a rules system that allows for the creation of character goals through advancement of power.  Board wide plots happen often and are regularly advanced by the staff while personal character plots are encouraged.  Overall it has been a wonderful experience since I joined and I look forward to continuing with the site.

    I love the site. The people are fun and friendly and the staff is very helpful and patient. The storyline and the events they have going on site-wide are very fun. Even though I am a slow rper I do feel like I can still be engaged in every event I participate in.

    Have you ever found yourself looking for a supernatural site that isn't like the rest? A site that offers more than the usual mundane plots that come with supernatural beings? Well,  Sinsomnia is that site. Sin, as the members like to refer to it as, is a place where the staff pride themselves in considering themselves one of the members. It's a site full of immersive plots and events that you simply can't help but to sink your teeth into. The community is always welcoming and there is always someone wanting to thread with you even if they already have upteem threads with you already. And of course, it's a community that fosters making more characters in the name of plotting! 

     

    It's also a site that is nice to look at, too. Their site is not only easy to look at but it's also easy to navigate. Everything can easily be found and if you can't find something, someone is always happy to help you out. 

     

    And we can't forget the amazing point system that is in place, complete with a store to spend said points at. As well, as the ability to create your own creature (within reason, that is) through a purchase of points. Staff never outright rejects your characters either - instead, they aim to help you and your concept fit into their lore and tend to go to any lengths to ensure that it does. 

     

    If you  haven't checked this site out, I highly suggest that you do. You never know, you just might find that you'd rather be awake than go to sleep... it is Sinsomnia after all~
