Welcome to This Is My Hell, a modern horror and paranormal role playing site.
Essex, New Jersey, is a lovely county to live in or visit. It is historical and cosy, welcoming and beautifully located in the east of the States. For centuries, it’s been the beloved home of many ignorant or paranormal humans, angels, vampires, werewolves, shifters, demons and hybrids of the before-mentioned.
And all this time, the human race has been the only acceptable one. All the other humanoids were labelled as supernatural beasts and abnormal monsters, ignored or hunted and forced to hide their true faces. Humans with innate abilities were locked up as mental patients. As time went by, the existence of other species was forgotten. Life has been a secret hell for the special ones. Sadly enough, none of that seems to change. Humanity is ignorant of the hypocrisy in their morals and most remain unaware of the fact that these so-called beasts are all around them.
Whether you be a socially acceptable human or a monster, you should hide under your mask of sympathy - or not.
Just as you got used to the hot summer heat it seems like only short lived. The trees that once held flowers and green leaves a plenty, now are starting to turn colors and fall on the ground. Night is coming earlier and winters cold breath is just around the corner. Make sure you wear a jacket or a scarf, for the nights are colder as the days progress.

Every self-respecting city needs a network of emergency services, including a hospital, police office, court and fire station. All these buildings have two things in common: they’re there to serve the public and their architects were all cheap minimalists. However, despite their uninviting and cold appearance, empty walls, pale colors and unimpressive sizes, these places keep the city going.
The majority of those that work need an office. Here, you can find all those tall, glass buildings in the city centre. Although the architecture is cold and clean, the office blocks themselves are buzzing with life, stress and the smell of coffee.

The ocean is close to Essex, in fact, it’s only a short drive away. Endlessly deep blue welcomes surfers, sun-lovers and tourists like no other body of water ever could. Here, you’re free to swim, sunbathe or recreate yourself by doing water sports.
The forest just outside the city is a most peaceful place, quiet and serene. It’s been left as natural as possible, which makes it highly attractive for animals and other, even worse beasts. It’s known to be one of the less safe spots of the area and entering it after dusk is at own risk.
