WELCOME TO GODS OR MONSTERS! We're glad you decided to check us out! Take a look around and pop your head in the cbox to introduce yourself! There's a lot of stuff (and things) to see around here but what definitely makes us stand out is that we have Spaghetti Tuesdays every Wednesday. Come see for yourself!
Griffin's deceased mother was Rosemary's mother's best friend. When Griffin's father died, Griffin and his brothers were adopted by Rosemary's parents, thus making the six of them a big, happy family. Until the world ended.
Griffin's spirit animal would probably be some kind of bird! If Rosemary was a dog, she would be a beagle!
"He tried to save me. He killed probably eight of those bastards before they brought him down. He took five bullets and kept on fighting. There were only three left when he died. I got one right between the eyes. And it was one of the last two that put this fucking thing inside of me." She got her tears under control and looked back up at Griffin, pain and hurt in her soul, all expressed through her hazel eyes, puffy from crying. "I didn't want you to see me like this." -- Rosemary to Griffin, on what happened to their father.

About The Kingdom
The Kingdom is a utopian society that worships their leader as a king. After all, how could you not? The man speaks as if he is straight from a Shakespearean History and owns a tiger! The people of The Kingdom try their hardest to be neutral in conflicts, and those with authority in the group keep secrets from the other members about their dealings with the Saviors to keep the peace, and make sure that no Kingdom member feels threatened or unsafe in their own home.
I'm Gay, Not a Fairy is a tense conversation between the homophobic Merle Dixon and the closeted Daryl Dixon. This thread is Daryl coming out to his brother at last. (Warning: This thread contains triggering language and hate speech, because unfortunately Merle is not an open-minded human being.)

Best Quote from Merle Dixon
(To Daryl) "What now? You're gonna pansy out? Gonna start wearing dresses and doing your hair all nice? You're gonna be a nancy?"
Best Moment in the thread
Merle had a break for a moment, and his head turned towards Daryl to see if he'd been overtaken yet or not. He was surprised to see his brother still standing after the first wave of walkers was completed on his end as well, and as the second wave approached Merle pursed his lips. "Not bad for a fairy." Daryl shuddered with anger and half-spoke half-yelled, "I'm gay, not a fairy." He realized that was the first time he'd said he was gay out loud. The words tasted bad on his tongue from being used as an insult too many times before, but one thought of Rick and he embraced it. Hell yeah, he was gay. What of it?!
Kacie was antagonizing Gavin and his men, and Gavin brought her to the kind of overreaction to be dealt with. That King's sassy nephew has also joined in the fun.
Why are they enemies?
Kacie is a childish, overconfident survivor who has been on her own for too long. Simon doesn't really like other people trying to stand up to him when they are in the wrong. And Semaj doesn't like anyone his Uncle doesn't like. Safe to say: they are all butting heads.
Semaj can often be found dancing to no music. Simon's guilty pleasure is listening to "Seagulls". Kacie loves chocolate and will do just about anything to get it.
"Maybe if you didn't show us you don't know what to do with a gun you'd still have it. Wasting ammo to prove you have a pair of balls doesn't show us much but 'hey I'm a moron, what's goin on?'" - Simon to Kacie

The current group to join is The Federalists. Gods or Monsters is currently looking for more members in this group, and has rewards in mind for the next 8 characters who join the group! Your character does not have to be new to join The Federalists and receive the reward, but if you choose to move an existing canon to The Federalists, they will need to stay in the group for two months site time before you will be able to move them again. This ensures that people are not simply moving their characters to The Federalists to collect their rewards without helping the group to grow and thrive.
The rewards for joining The Federalists are as follows:
Whomever joins The Federalists will receive their choice of one custom made piece of artwork for the site! You may choose a gif, a custom avatar, a custom graphic, a custom template, a specialty thread tracker, or anything else you can think of and one of the admin will hand create your choice from scratch to your exact specifications! If you join The Federalists and do not want one of these things, you may talk to the admin and they will see if there is anything else they can do for you. So what are you waiting for? Make a member of The Federalists today!
Started by a man who had once been a historian, The Federalists got their name because of a former group of politicians and Shawn, the historians, fondness for some of the historical members. History was always prevalent with him, one can tell by the names of his children. One for the woman who started a war, and the other for one of the bastard children of Pope Alexander VI . He believed that the nation's capital was the best city in the world, and he wanted to make sure it kept standing. So, using the group he was able to pull together he cleared the White House with the thinking that it would help pull people together because some might come seeking shelter; and come they did.
He made a home for each and every person who came to his door and he made sure the grounds were well tended so people would know there was sanctuary there.
Though, eventually some people came knocking who were not so friendly and demanded blood for a bad run in some of Shawn's people had with them on a run. One of their own was taken out by this group calling themselves the Saviors and they demanded penance for the group's existence which did not sit well with Shawn, but he complied to keep the rest of his group alive.
The group took the demands lying down for about a year, but eventually it started to get old. Shawn was running out of things to give his own and the Saviors had to go. He started tracking them to their own location and when the time was right, his group attacked and they thought they won; but they were wrong and for that error they would pay a terrible price.
The Saviors returned in abundance and they killed Shawn and another in the group, a twin named Lucas. They were beaten to death by the head of the Saviors, a man who called himself Negan. Now the Saviors all said they were Negan but no one had any doubt that this man was really Negan.
After the deaths, the group has been trying to relearn how to keep going and some days are good and others are touch and go still.
How The Group is Run
The group is still reeling from the death of the last leader and roles are still shifting. But the main rule of this group has always been: work and you will be fed. There wasn't ever much else to it when Helen's father was in charge, so her plans are pretty much the same. Everyone does their part and everyone can stay and be fed.
The group is run by Helen, but she has people close to her that have to be kept in the know. Her father had people who were close and she tries to keep them close too but some of them doubt her abilities and she's trying to convince herself and them that she can do this. As long as everyone tries to keep going that is really all Helen asks, they're all figuring it off as they go.
The timeline will detail major group plot points since the opening of site. PM an admin if any major events are missing from this timeline.
September of 2013 - while on a run, Lola Gray was split up from the rest of a group of runners. She ran into another group while she was on her own: The Saviors. They roughed her up and took her bag, hoping for scavenged goods, but were surprised to find luxury items. The saviors appreciated what Negan's harem back at the Sanctuary would think of these goods, so they happily took them and tried to get the location of Lola's group out of her. Seeking more approval, Lola more than willingly sold out the location of her group, and lo and behold, a week later the saviors rolled up at their gates and murdered a woman named Laurel, and started making demands of the group's goods.
November of 2013 - The Saviors started coming twice a month since that day in September to demand things of the group, supplies and things. And it was fine for a while but they were starting to ask too much and instead of just rolling over anymore, the group decided to fight back. They started tracking the group that came to see them and realized where they operated out of and they decided that that was to be where they attacked and ended this.
November of 2013 - The attack left a lot of saviors dead, they managed to get the jump on them and really thought fro a second they had won; but that was before an even bigger group rolled up to the gates of the White House.
The man there turned out to be the real leader, his name was Negan and he was not happy, not at all.
He took out the leader of the group for the attack, and out to spite took another; then warned the daughters of the man he killed that he would be back and to make sure they understood where they fell in the pecking order.
Every group has a different method of accepting new members. In order to stay true to canon, we will need characters to follow these methods if you want your character to join their group. The following are site-allowed ways to join The Federalists. If you have other ideas of how you would like to join the site, you will need to PM the group's leader and/or an admin. Group leaders and admin reserve the right to refuse admittance into a group should the idea be too out of character for the canons or groups involved. Should this happen, do not be discouraged. Another option can be discussed, or you may choose one of the pre-approved methods discussed below.
The Federalists were originally run by Helen's father, and he was the sort of man who took in anyone who needed him. The group found people all over DC who were either native to the city and just had no way out, or they had come to the city seeking shelter. Taking over the ruins of the White House also made people flock to them because they were seeking Government Assistance, what they failed to realize usually was that there was no Government anymore.
Helen has recently taken over the group and she tends to abide by the same rules as he did, he took anyone who shows up and so does she. The only thing she asks is that you swear that you will help them defeat the Saviors, she needs fighters so she will take anyone who is willing to help.
Below is a detailed list of the different types of jobs/ranks within The Feds and what it means to fill that role:
LEADER- The leader of The Feds is Helen Foley and all people fall under her. She is determined to not only follow in her father's footsteps but also get revenge against those who killed her father needlessly.
ADVISERS- These people were close to Helen's father before his passing and advised him. Also in this category are those she trusts implicitly. These people help strengthen and motivate Helen and also give her the courage to make the tough calls when she has to by sticking by her side no matter what.
MEDICAL- All of the doctors, nurses, medics, and others with knowledge of healing the human body can be found in this category.
GUARDS- Guards watch the gates of the White House in shifts, there is always someone on the watch. They decide who comes in and who goes out, and they also take out any walkers that come close, in an attempt to try and thin out the constant herd in the area.
RUNNERS- These people go out of The White House to look for things to bring back for the group to use. They are strong and fast and not afraid to venture out into the nation's capitol, which also happens to be one of the most densely populated walker infestations in all of the country.
MEMBERS- Anyone else falls into this category, though they are likely used for general labor or other duties around the camp from day to day. If you are claiming a member, you must also claim what job they have within the community specifically, such as electrician, teacher, cook, etc. etc. This does not have to be their only job, but their primary one.
THIS CLAIM IS MANDATORY IF JOINING THE FEDERALISTS
Names red and underlined are unclaimed canons or wanted ads. To avoid certain jobs from getting too many characters, caps may be added to certain jobs and will be given on a first come first serve basis. These caps are changing constantly so keep checking back! Note: With the exception of Helen, Robin, and Lorne, the canons below have jobs that are subject to change by the member who takes them.
These Obituaries celebrate the life and death of those Federalist Canons and Original Characters we have lost since the site has begun! If you make the decision to kill off one of your characters, please fill out the code below. ♥
REST IN PEACE
Shawn Foley, 65, was killed tragically by Negan Black through the use of his favorite baseball bat, Lucille.
Shawn was the leader of the Federalists, a group of DC based citizens that made a stronghold out of The White House after the city fell and the government was lost. A historian before the apocalypse, he was the father of two wonderful girls, Helen and Lucretia. Shawn became a leader because he needed to step up, but he was a compassionate man at the end of the day. He treated his group like a family. While he was the patriarch and took responsibility for the hard decisions, he never wanted anyone to feel like they weren't appreciated or loved. They had a family in The Federalists, even if they'd lost their real one to the world as it was. He was loved by all, and his death at the hands of Negan's beloved weapon Lucille hit everyone in the group. Hard. As the patriarch, Shawn had stepped up to defend his home. He knew how appealing his campsite, The White House, looked to The Saviors, but he would not allow anyone to take what didn't belong to them. And in his refusal, one of his group lost their lives. He was taken out only a few minutes later, after he sent a bullet flying inches from Negan's head. He serves as an inspiration and a legend to those he has left behind and he can only hope that that he did not die in vain, and that his family will fight to avenge him, but above all for what is right.
Shawn is survived by his daughters, Helen and Lucretia, and his granddaughter, Marienne.
Lucas Trout, 24, was killed tragically by Negan Black through use of his favorite baseball bat, Lucille.
Lucas Trout, one of the famous Trout Twins, was fiercely loyal to his family and friends. He was always the first to offer to help in any situation, and was incredibly selfless and romantic, both traits that his girlfriend Savannah loved and admired. When The Saviors attempted to take over, they did what they always do and killed one of The Federalists' ranks. By sheer luck, Lucas was the first to be bludgeoned to death. Shawn was soon to follow.
Lucas is survived by his identical twin brother, Lorne, and his girlfriend, Savannah.
