Telescope is based in fictional Croatoa, Tennessee, where the bodies of influential town folk were found in the abandoned church in the mountains. Even with the small town stories of the monsters in the woods it has not deterred the tourists who have come to visit the healing springs hidden away in the mountains. Where will you find yourself in Croatoa -- On the front of a missing poster, or the reason behind it? Register accounts with your character's first and last name in all proper capitalization. E.g. Johnny Cash

do you have a certain character that you need to complete your characters plot? does your character have a long lost brother or sister that they need to find; or maybe the sire of one of your vampires? this is the place for you to post. look over the wanted ad to see if something snags your attention and maybe lights a fire under a new muse for you.

In celebration of the day Croatoa, Tennessee, was founded, the town square is turned into a carnival. This carnival was once a celebration of both the birth of the town and the summer harvest during Lughnasadh, but the pagan beginnings have long since been forgotten by general population. Instead, Croatoa simply celebrates its founding fathers and the day the town was born with an array of rides, games, vendors, dancing, and more.

there is nothing quite like going to the movies on a saturday night with their friends. the theater itself is old, but it does have one big modern screen that is 3-d capable which is still the biggest thing to happen in croatoa in years. on the weekends the movie theater lights up the old drive in theater which has been a staple in the town for years.

old croatoa has a range of homes that are either extremely beautiful or barely holding on. older homes in croatoa have an elaborate history, beautiful and ugly things have happened in these homes, listen to the walls and they may have a story to tell.

even a small town such as croatoa has a nightlife though it is limited to the local bar and a new club that was brought in by the mayor as means of bringing younger tourists to croatoa.

a town as small as croatoa is limited to a small sheriff station and an even smaller fire department but they get everything done with the help of the locals. there is a local clinic where people go for common colds, anything more serious and they are sent to chattanooga where they can be seen at the larger hospital.

while the classes are small Croatoa has a fully functioning elementary, middle, and high school. All sports are played at Croatoa High and there are even a few graduates who have gone on to play professional sports. There are a few rumors that there is a ghost in the basement of the finearts building, but no one has lived to tell the tale.

on the edge of town where croatoa meets the woods is an old playground that was long ago considered abandoned. few children come to the playground as of late it is more teenagers and adventurous young adults who come to play on the creaky swings and rusted merry go round.

tourists and locals alike use the cabins as a middle ground between the town and the healing springs near by. rumors of missing people from the cabins are quickly squashed by the cabin owner and locals. try to enjoy the lake and the trees around you, maybe even go for a trail ride while you are here at the cabins.

people come from near and far for just the chance to take a dip into the healing springs. few outside of the supernatural know that the healing powers of the springs come from the weapons hidden away under the old church for years. just remember do not come to the springs alone, and better yet come with a guide who knows how to get in and out of the woods.

hidden away in the mountains is the croatoa caves, the gold and jewels once found in abundance in these caves was the reasoning that croatoa was founded in the first place. the caves long ago went dry but tourist still like to come visit and try their hand at finding gold. vampires and witches have both been known to frequent the caves for their privacy away from mortal prying eyes.

the old church as it has so aptly been nicknamed by the individuals in croatoa is by far the oldest building in croatoa. there are numerous rumors about this place being the source of the bad luck that lingers around croatoa and just as many rumors about the church being the only thing that is keeping the real bad luck from wiping croatoa out. few know of its deepest darkest secret that the horsemen's weapons were hidden underneath the old boards, a beacon for supernatural creatures in its own right.

being so far away from the big cities Croatoa has become very reliant on the local famers who grow crops and raise livestock. the homes are usually large and spacious some of the most beautiful houses in croatoa are in the country.

Croatoa is only a small little town in the big wide world, people sometimes feel trapped by the small town when the rest of the world is out there waiting on them. from the castles in ireland to the great wall of china itself.
