    “All of this follows camera footage captured by a Brooklyn teen of what appears to be these Vampires ...” She hesitated on her notes, seemingly flustered as she looked back up. ”Feeding off a group of people who seemingly did nothing to provoke their attackers. We've acquired this cell phone video and we're going to roll a clip of it. Please be warned, what you're about to see may be disturbing for some viewers.”

    The footage from the darkened street, grainy it seemed as two figures turned the corner and honed in on a seemingly rowdy and (probably) inebriated group of four figures. The couple's fingers and nails, in turn, lengthened into sharp points. Hunched over and impossibly fast as they moved on the group who stilled in a moment of frozen shock, their screams muffled through the glass of the window as the footage went shaky when one assailant grabbed hold of one of the women and lunged at their throat. The other off to the side and unnaturally fast as they pushed a second girl who attempted to run down and onto the pavement. Bleeping as the person behind the phone let out a string of curses as the attackers on the street below seemed to open their mouths impossibly wide. The screaming fading out to nothing as the phone dropped and they cut back to the bleach blonde on the street corner.

    “At this time we're waiting, like everyone else, to secure an interview with Mr. Maldonado. We would like to remind everyone that this story is still developing, Stan. Police and first responders ask that everyone remain calm and exercise good judgment while this story continues to develop, back to you Stan ...”

    A new species has been introduced to What Lies We Breathe! Forget what you think you know about Vampires. The Vampires on WLWB are a special breed designed specifically for this game. Read more about them here.

    Just a comment

    I liked the ad on here, but when visiting the site I changed my mind of joining due to the body of the forum. How things are arranged for the OOC, and Rp section while looking at it from the front page.

    The two looked bunched together, and I couldn't tell what was what.

    It's that time again! WLWB is hoppin' with stuff to do! Flash events, in character get togethers, new achievements to earn; you name it, we've got it. Right now we're even doing an advertising blitz so that we can get more people to come hang out and be friends with us.

    WLWB prides itself on being inclusive to everyone, new and old. What will your character do? What trouble will they get into and how will they react? Join us and find out!

    Here's an update to our numbers!:

    April 29, 2019 - August 13, 2019 (4~ months!):
    → accounts: (671) [Down from last update because we cleaned out old, 0 post accounts!]
    → threads (4,597→ 6,787)
    → overall posts (98,339 → 122,199)

    The numbers for threads and overall posts are all in-character numbers. Our members are wonderful and active but even if you don't post quickly, we welcome you with open arms! We love new friends and would love to have you and your characters join us in the fight to survive!
