Drama is better kept IC. Respect is key between members; if you want respect you must give respect. If there's a problem with a member please contact either one of the mods or one of the admins.

Site Rating
TAOE is an intermediate to advanced, mature rated site [M], so we ask that all members to be just that; mature. There can be some pretty heavy subject matter so be warned. No characters below 18 years old. NPCs like children and such can be mentioned. ​There will be no child molester characters allowed on this site.

Word Count
Though there's no word count, we ask that you try and match your partner's number of words. It's no fun when you write a nice big paragraph and you get a couple sentences back, right? Then don't do it.

Number of Characters
There's no limit to the amount of characters you can make, however before you can make a second character, we ask that your first character has 10 IC posts. Same goes for any subsequent character. PLEASE KEEP YOUR CHARACTERS ACTIVE IF YOU WANNA KEEP THEM.

Register your character as "First Last" on the site, with your character names. If you messed up somehow talk to an admin, they'll be more then glad to edit your name for you. OOC accounts are reserved for Admins and Moderators, so please do not make them!

Avatar pics are 250px by 300px. The personal image on the minioprofile is a square and will resize automatically. This can be an image that represents the player, much like the avatars on the cbox! The Gif is 230px by 110px. Since the skin was so nicely coded by YunoTheNine, we ask to have high quality images please, keep the site pretty. Here is a link to help crop images and gifs: EZGif | PicMonkey

We ask that all faceclaims/play bys to be of actors of age (17 and older). We also ask them to be of real people (actors, models, etc, someone you can get pics and gifs), no anime or other cartoon characters. If you want to use art of your character you can put that in your signature, if you wish.

There will be none tolerated. There are rules to character powers and such for that reason, please see those sections in order to make sure you're not making your character too strong. If you have any questions contact an admin or mod and they'll be more then happy to help!

We simply ask (please) that you use the basic template which is provided within the posts, super easy, either click on the button that says "template" when you write your post or write [template][/*template] at the beginning and end of a post (minus the star). Plotters are required to have a template, but there's lots of resource sites for that such as Caution to the Wind

Generally speaking, the only classification changes characters can undergo is from Pure to Imperfect. Characters can POTENTIALLY go back to Elisium pretending to be Pures, but that would be a very elaborate plot that needs to be discussed with either By or Jonah before it happens.

Everything on this site is copyrighted to the said members or individuals here on TAOE. Skin was made by YunoTheNine of Shine. Templates and Graphics belong to the rightful owners, and there will be no stealing characters either. So we will put it frank, you steal ANYTHING without giving the proper credit, you will be banned. No warning.

We're all here to have a good time! So kick back, write loads, and have fun~! Make some friends! Like, for instance, Steve Buscemi, who also happens to be the password that you need to send to an admin via PM in order to get accepted. ;)



TAOE is set in the biggest city, Haven, of the Isle of Man, an island reserved for those the government deems 'imperfect'. Sexual orientation, gender expression, mental and physical health, intelligence, your willingness to cooperate... It all leads up to your ultimate downfall, the one that brings you to the doors of Haven. The weather is harsh, the streets are filthy, and most of the inhabitants live in poverty, fighting for sport and profit, and joining gangs to get by. It's a tough life, that in Haven, but hey; someone has to be a scapegoat.

But little does the government know, there's something about the Isle of Man that changes its inhabitants. They call it the Flux, and it's quite the phenomenon, leaving people who were once only usual in spirit or body, now unusual in ability. It's like a power, one that can come suddenly, or over time, or even not at all. It all depends, person to person, and is, for whatever reason, all based around the citizen's personality. Whether you're Pure or Imperfect, you have a chance of being blessed, or cursed.

Yet, through this rejection and hardship this is where home lies, and this is your chance to make it so.


The Authority is in place to protect us. They serve us to the best of their ability, they protect the citizens of this country until their very last dying breath. Long ago was a time where there was no peace. War raged upon the land, death and destruction ravaged the people, destroyed their homes, split them apart into chaos. In their desperation for control over the anarchy and disarray, the Authority stepped into their ranks, unannounced, unwelcome at first. This did not last.
They lured the people into their grasp with the promise of peace and prosperity, a vow to food, the end of crime and violence. Of course, the good, the bad and the ugly wanted in on this pledge, and many started taking advantage of the system. Like leeches they sucked, squeezed what they could of the government, to the point where there was general alarm, the populace began to notice! And thus began the weeding.
At first it was but criminals, the worst of the worst, all raided and plucked from the public eye, sent away to an undisclosed location for the safety of the country. But their haul through time grew in size; illness causes panic, those who are sick must be put somewhere else, disability, lest it be mental or physical, leads to voids in the community, gender should be a norm of two, no more no less, and those who do not confirm are to be re-educated or removed... the list for their demands grew longer and more elaborate.

Soon, correctional and holding facilities for these so dubbed Imperfects were so overcrowded you might as well akin them to cans of sardines. The Authority realized they needed a different strategy to keep these people from their Pure society.

They found an island, abandoned from times past, a city crumbling from within. The Isle of Man, reclaiming the city as their own they called it Haven in order to mask the true atrocity behind their Elisium.

This was sixty years ago. We are now the year 2021, three generations into Haven's rebirth.

I'm not completely dead inside, but boy, am I on my way there! I'm a lean mean posting machine, and I like to just eat chocolate frosting sometimes. I just eat it. Right out of the thing. Give me your love.



I’m a die hard potterhead, metal head, and coffee addict. I have four dogs, two chihuahuas named Tali and Liara, a pitbull named Surri Dog, and an American Staffordshire Terrier named Norma Jean. I’m a bit of a crazy dog lady, but I’m okay with it.



Yo, I'm Roman! I'm a little noodle who wears too much black with hair as red as a fire truck. I am a firm believer in the power of art, and one day I hope to free all the animals from Sea World while Fall out Boy's "Folie à Deux" album plays in the background.

I just love to read x3 Anywho I've been doing this whole roleplaying thang since way back in 2008 and it's safe to say that I've become addicted. So why not come and be addicts with us all? Okay, yeah. That's a weird way to put it. Just join us pretty please~? We're nice peeps, I swear!

Beyond just the coding itself, though, I love helping other people figure it out. So, seriously, if you ever want some help coding something, learning how to do it, or simply fixing a bug that you cant find; feel free to hit me with a PM~!. You're also more than welcome to make requests on my CTTW Bird House. Love you all, happy posting! -Regards; Yuno

In loving memory of Kaityn Rayne.

Whether you're new or old to this community, one person we have always got to remember is out loving friend Kaityn Rayne. She was a very creative and great person, easy to talk to and always there. Anyone who knew Kaityn knows just how nice she was.

For a lot of us, she was the first person to speak to us and welcome us to the community. As of the 28th of June she has no longer been with us. It's a very sad thing, although Kaityn was the kind of person who wouldn't want us to be upset with her not being here. That being said, in her honor we are working hard to write amazing new stories. Her memory will always be with us. Kaityn, we love you. ♥

One morning, early as can be, a boat floats into the docks of Haven. Dawn has just broken through the horizon, promising heat and humidity, promising one heck of a hot day, once again, as it always has. The boats that usually roll into the harbor are full of imperfects, those deemed to be doomed and rot upon the shores of the Isle of man, but not today. Today it seems to be packed to the brim with... younger people it seems, ranging between kindergarten to the end years of high school. What is happening? What could these children be doing here, and with their educators no less... and chaperones?
You ask around, poke noses into their conversations as they walk by you, not a single one of those children daring to make eye contact with you... and that's when you find out; they're on a field trip, to learn about The Imperfects and how they live. You've become the next attraction, serving as an animal in this zoo of a city, an example of how not to be.

You are these children's lessons in life, of what happens to you when you are not Pure.

No New Posts Headquarters
Spanning the width of the bay, this building serves as the working and living environment for the Pures upon the Isle of Man, as well as a dam to control carrier traffic. The building is several stories high and is one the biggest building around. It being so wide within the center there is a long stretch which is considered the courtyard, where Pures can go out without fear of being bothered by civilians. Here no Imperfects can be found, the front gates are highly guarded, and this area is off limits.

No New Posts Hospital
Created by the Authority as a training grounds for doctors to come perfect their skills, this building comprises of the most high tech medical equipment available to Elisium. Rooms are separated into sections depending on the need of the patient and their treatment with mostly sound proof walls so not to disturb the patients that are resting. Scientists and professors alike have no qualms both treating and performing research on patients, for the betterment of mankind as well as to satisfy the curiosity of if an impure can be fixed.

No New Posts The Docks
These docks are massive, made to hold carriers from Elisium transporting hundreds of Imperfects unto their new homes. Don’t try and sneak on though in hopes of returning back to Elisium, stow-aways are always caught, and they are never heard from again. Every morning on the edge of the docks truck sized holographic billboard displays an array of jobs Imperfects can sign up for to gain extra income. First come first serve, you snooze you loose!

No New Posts The Wall
The wall that separates the Imperfects from the Pures is of monumental proportions; fifty feet in height, decorated with towers where spotlights allow the watchers to keep an eye on things. It is impenetrable and no Imperfects have ever been able to breach this concrete facade, though it has been defaced with graffiti. Those that get too close to close to the wall, or have been known to defile the wall, much like the Imperfects at the docks, have a habit of disappearing and never heard from again.

No New Posts Broadcast Station
A tower adorned with a crown of powerful megaphones, this spire pierces the sky, its four faces giant screens to display broadcast video. Announcements happen at least twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, but they can happen more often if the Pures feel the need to broadcast breaking news. It is said to be so loud that its very frame rattles with every announcement, producing an ominous hum which can be felt for many yards through the ground. A few even claim that if you are close enough that you can feel the vibrations through your bones.

No New Posts Park
Rundown and now reduced to a much more bleak state than what it once was years ago, the park has long since been reclaimed by the wild plants that have overgrown the area. A fountain sits at the center that no longer works. Swing sets, monkey-bars, teeter-totters, a slide and a few benches, can be found there as well. For the most part it’s completely abandoned but it’s a fairly popular hangout for teens or the more adventurous children that aren’t deterred by the plant’s activity.

No New Posts Ruins
The ruins are in the city center, mostly occupied by old skyscrapers that block the most of sunlight from the streets. The area is the number one hangout for gang members, and has become and citizens who cannot afford proper housing. Gang fights are very likely to break out over any little thing from just someone looking at another person wrong to territory and drugs. It's incredibly dangerous, even the Watchers won’t venture here without good reason, so it's recommended that steer clear.

Too poor of a district for anything but housing, the low-income apartment complexes and shotgun homes here are shoddy and run-down, the cheapest you can get around the city. It also happens to be where you can find the Foster Strip, street 18, affectionately dubbed "Sesame Street", a row of houses where minors who have been relocated are sent to live.

The Recreational Center is where people go to enjoy themselves... to their best ability. One of the most protected places for Imperfects on the Isle it is mostly overseen by the Sentinel group. They do their to provide Imperfects with games to play such as board games, card games, arcade games (if the machine wants to work), to organize sporting events with friends, or you could even come here to just enjoy the positive atmosphere around you.

Dubbed by most as "The Sindicate," this entire street is dedicated to the more pleasurable of vices. Whether one is looking for a place to enjoy themselves among clubs or drowning away their sorrows in the many bars, the street has plenty to offer to anyone who visits. At nighttime, the area only seems to become even livelier with an almost Mardi Gras atmosphere. Just be careful on who hooks you up, or you might really lose your soul as payment for your momentary pleasures.

Welcome to the unofficial middle class housing. In the South End it is at least a touch better than that of its North counterpart. The area is cleaner, with functioning houses and apartments, less risk of stabbing, and even a few children. It's a fantastic place to call home, even if it is still small and unappealing. Not to mention the few pickpockets that seem to have taken up these streets as well, as long as you don’t walk to close to anyone your belongings should be safe enough though!

No New Posts The Market
The Market is a busy place— tents of food as far as the eye can see, keep your expectations low and your nose plugged. Most of the food sold are scraps sent from Elisium, ranging from stale bread to mushy fruit and the occasional fuzzy blocks of cheese. Rarely, something that might actually resemble real food will appear, but it’s usually snapped up by the top dogs of the gangs. Keep your heart hard and your wit about you as well though, because there are beggars, usually children, that will follow you around with no end if they think you will give them just a morsel of food.

Generally overcrowded with large amounts of people on a daily basis, The Mall has fallen prey to old age, crappy conditions just the same as everything else that surrounds it. Various merchandise can be bought on the two levels of the huge building. It is not uncommon to spot merchants themselves spread throughout selling their goods. Did I mention there are escalators too? Note: they don't actually work though, so if you were hoping to ride your way up and down, think again.

Much like the rest of the city, Wright’s Square is pretty run down. The air smells thick of grease and burning metal in this part of town, and most of the people that work here often walk out covered head to toe in coal, dirt, and grease. This is where one could find the carpenters, riggers, welders, and anything else industrious that they may need. From twilight on till dark it turns into mostly a trading center though so if you want something, make sure you have something they want, they’ve been known to be picky!

Here we find the best homes available on the market that money could buy. The East End of town contains actual houses that most find quite cozy, along with apartments without bodies in the dumpsters, or any disgusting types of critters wishing to make a home alongside the human occupants. It's actually a nice place to live, if it weren't for the prices on the monthly rent, that most of our citizens, unfortunately, cannot afford. But hey, if you can? Congratz!

No New Posts Tunnels
The maker of these series of tunnels is unknown, but rumor is that they've been around since the beginning of the Isle. Some of the first residents tried to dig a route into the wall, an escape completely off the Isle no one knows for sure. Either way the underground passages are put to good use. The black market is situated here, conducted out of sight, but there's a price for using the tunnels. There are rumors that something lurks in the darkness, no one knows what it is, but it is always on the prowl from the shadows, watching and waiting.

The Beyond in and of itself, is a main factor in helping to keep the people inside the city of Haven, because outside the walls, there is nothing but seemingly impossible terrain: large jungles with dangerous creatures, deadly deserts where life is scarce for as long as the eye can see, to freezing mountains that will chill you to your core in mere hours, and dense forested areas. The majority of citizens choose to remain inside Haven due to it being safer and that fact that anyone who's ever ventured out, has never come back.

No New Posts Elisium
The true utopian society, the grass is always at its greenest and the land is never to hot or to cold. Elisium runs on a mix of pure, clean, renewable energy sources and urban life is in balance with nature. Animal and plant species are protected and care for and every citizen does their job with a perfection that most could only dream about. But this perfection comes at a very deep cost, and perhaps perfection is not quite as perfect as it seems?
