Welcome to the city of Sicily; an alternate universe filled with fantasy elements, bustling street-life, thrilling adventures and gorgeous scenery.
Unfortunately, in the grimy underbelly of the society grows corruption - and it's getting stronger.
Before we get into this roleplay studio, I want to clarify that credit for the plot and universe idea goes to the webcomic Lumine, written and illustrated by Emma Krogell.

--- ................................. ---
Here in Sicily, dwell witches, humans, and were-dogs. ( DOGS, not werewolves. )
------------- W I T C H E S --------------
The witches are among the elite, and wealthy. They use their magic to enforce self-assertive opinions and laws, and by that I mean they harness their magic to physically intimidate anyone that stands in their way. Witches also have very rigid values - They think of themselves as "higher" of class were-dogs, but they do hold humans with a reasonable amount of respect.
--------- W E R E - D O G S -----------
Were-dogs, on the other hand, are of much less fortunate. They are constantly used by the higher-ranking members of society, including both witches and humans. They usually have jobs as henchman, or "bodyguards", and they protect their employers ((Usually wealthy politicians/gang leaders)) by transforming into their dog-form and viciously attacking anyone that holds a threat to their boss.
---------------- H U M A N S --------------
Humans are aware of the abilities of their fellow inhabitants of Sicily- And they are slightly intimidated by the prestigious magical properties of the witches. Even so, humans live very normal lives, and they can hold great power in the city.

So now that you know about the relationships between the three different types of species, you probably want to know about the plot. Well, recently there have been reports of witch children being stolen, or more like kidnapped, all over the city. The witches, enraged, have blamed the were-dogs for the disappearances of their young. The gangs of witches and were-dogs are at a constant war, and bloodshed is common. What they don't know is that the witch children have been taken by certain human gang-leaders, because they've discovered that witch blood, when drank, can cause normal humans to have surging magical potential pumping through their veins; and they want to use this to rise into power.
~ So that's one side of the plot.
For managers - You can be something called a werewolf. Werewolves have been in hiding for centuries, and they're incredibly rare. Like witch children, werewolves are valuable in the black market and are hunted for their capabilities, which are...
------- W E R E - W O L V E S -------
Were-wolves are very, very different from were-dogs. They are immensely huge, and usually have very unusual coloration, for example a pure cremello coat with violet eyes. Were-wolves also have ancient histoy- they've been around Sicily for thousands of years, until the witches and humans came to drive them out because they were fearful of the beasts' sheer power.

In the more dingy side of the city there's an old warehouse. Go around the left corner and knock thrice on an old hidden door and you're in. Inside is a massive room, a makeshift bar on the farthest wall(made of a decrepit shipping container). In the middle of the room is a large, high fenced, cage with blood spatters on the ground. This is where the cage fights happen. Some wealthy people with were-dog bodyguards take them here and sign them up for cage fights. All fights must be done in dog form and bets can be placed. Other were-dogs can sign up and earn some money. There are other, smaller cages around the centre one, this is where the fighters sit and wait. You can also buy meals and eat here whilst watching the fights.
Are you up to the fight? ☢☢☢
