Introducing... Vampires!


Thank you to all of the members that helped make this roll-out happen! For those of you that killed characters for this event, those characters have now been placed in the Transitioning category if you would like to bring them back as a Vampire! If you would prefer to not bring them back, please tap a member of the admin team and we will put that character back in the deceased category.

This is the part where we ask you to re-read the entire guidebook from start to finish before proceeding. There have been changes in multiple places that require your attention. With this in mind, anyone trying to Level their characters will be able to use the old level up rules until 11:59 PM 7/21/17.

We would also like to take this moment to welcome Bones to the admin team! We know that she is just as thrilled as we are to have her on board and expect her to smash do great things!

August 8:



Great googly moogly, ya'll are insane (in all the right ways). Over 1,200 posts have been made since we introduced Vampires 3 weeks ago! Thank you so much to everyone (new and old!) for making our rollout such a massive success!

A big congratulations goes out to Kiew for her promotion! That's right, Liars! She's fueled like fire! Our resident #plantlady and #actualunicorn has joined the admin team! Please extend her a giant round of applause and send her your love! — Gina, Caoimhe, and Bones

August 21:

Total Eclipse of the... Abilities?

For the first time in nearly 100 years, the United States is experiencing a coast-to-coast Total Eclipse. The occurrence is amazing and awe-inspiring, if you aren't part of the supernatural community, that is. For those Psychics, Vampires, or Weres that haven't experienced a Total Eclipse before, it can be very jarring experience.

The moment the eclipse hits its peak (for Cordova, that was just after noon, at 12:07PM), all supernatural creatures "lose" any and all powers and are rendered entirely human for 24 hours. Psychics and Vampires will not be able to use their abilities. Vampires will feel no urge to consume blood, and can even go out during the day, should they wake up from their sun-comas. Weres will have no attachment to their beasts. Again, they all turn entirely human, with all of the vulnerabilities that come with being human, meaning they cannot heal anything they might normally heal!

That said, feel free to start a thread with your character reacting to this event! Keep in mind that if your Were/Vampire was shifted at the time, they will revert to their human form. For Vampires, this isn't much of an issue, since they retain their clothing, but Weres on the other hand... Welllll...

Sept 1:

Mysterious as the Dark Side of the Moon Skin

It's been a long time coming but the dark skin has finally been completed! Huge thanks to both Caoimhe (and Shinka) for getting this put together. If you find errors or something that looks like it was missed, please feel free to post in the Maintenance thread or in the #AskAnAdmin channel! This is just one of many projects that have been in the works for you all and we are so excited to roll this out to you!

Oct 20:

Hey Liars, It's Your Birthday, Gonna Party Like It's Your Birthday

Officially, What Lies We Breathe has been open for a whole year and it's thanks to all of you! We're grateful to each and every one of you for making WLWB not only a fantastic community, but an inviting, happy, and comfortable place for everyone to enjoy. Your admin team could not be happier with the last year and we want to thank everyone for all the hard work you've put in! Head on over to the Announcement Thread for a full rundown! Don't forget to check out the Change Log either!

Again, thank you so much. We hope you all love all the new and shiny things, and look forward to writing many, many more threads with you all!

Love — Gina, Caoimhe, Bones, & Kiew! <3

An abnormally large tiger has been spotted roaming the streets of Crestview after tearing it's way out of a man. I repeat, WERES HAVE BEEN OUTED. See the News Broadcast located HERE.

Happy New Year!

It has truly been an amazing year with you all. From the Vampires being outed to the Weres running wild in the streets, this year, our characters have seen and experienced a lot! They've been stressed out, turned, and even murdered and there's only more turmoil ahead for them. Here's to all the friends we've made, the laughs we've had, and the support we've given to each other, and all the wonderfulness we'll share together going forward. Truly, we love and appreciate each and every one of you.

Happy New Year! Love, — Gina, Bones, Caoimhe, & Kiew! <3

Welcome to What Lies We Bleat!

Your admin team has unanimously decided that What Lies We Breathe is now closed so that we can follow our life long dreams of opening a Modern Day Goat RP. We are immediately changing to What Lies We Bleat. Your characters have been altered automatically.

Please note that any and all vampires regardless of level now have the ability to change into a goat. All humans and psychics have been gifted with a goat in one way or another whether it miraculously appears in their homes or a stranger on the street just hands them one. Both of these changes (as well as the Baby!Were random event) will be active for the next week.

— Gina, Bones, Keeva, & Kiew! <3
