By daylight, your average urban setting, with inhabitants going about their day-to-day lives. By nightfall, the city comes to life and not everyone on the street is what they seem. Vampires. Shapeshifters. Fey. Witches. All can be found throughout St. Louis if you strip away the skin and find the blood within. Welcome to Obsidian Butterfly, an active intermediate-to-advanced Anita Blake/Merry Gentry RPG; if danger and mystique is what you’ve wanted, we’ve got it. We’re here in the shadows, where monsters lie – and we’re waiting for you.

Obsidian Butterfly was created by MANDI and is set in St. Louis, MO, in a unique fusion of the Anita Blake and Merry Gentry universes as created by Laurell K. Hamilton. The skin codes were created by their respective designers (see the footer of each skin) and were edited by JAYME, MANDI and RU. Graphics were created for each skin by the three admins as well, unless otherwise stated in the skin itself.

Powers, descriptions and board information were created either by the staff or the members and should never be used outside of Obsidian Butterfly without permission from their creators. The same goes for graphics. We work hard to keep our content fresh and original; if you ask, we'll probably share most things with you, so don't rip shamelessly from us. View a complete list of graphic base credits here. If you want to get in touch with the staff of Obsidian Butterfly, please email us at obsidian-butterfly @
