''The Town'' is a (mostly) fantasy freeform [[PlayByPostGames Play By Post Game]] with origins at the Giant in the Playground forums. It started when a werewolf and a [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Dragon]] had a feud that climaxed in an arena fight, which led an [[FunnyAnimal enterprising cat]] to make some money off selling dolls and making a Milk Bar, not to mention ascending to [[AGodAmI godhood]]. Make sense so far? No? Good; most of the longtime Townies don't really get it either. The Town has since developed into many stories and plots, so many, in fact, that there are doubts that anyone knows all of them.

After a while and due to some disagreements between Townies and technical difficulties with the Giant in the Playground, the Town was split into two different sites, most commonly called [[http://enupnion.myfastforum.org/index.php New Town]], where many people emigrated, and [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=32 Old Town]], where those stayed who didn't want to abandon [=GitP=] due to various reasons. In either case, it's devilishly difficult to join the town at this point without stick-to-it-ivness.

New Town also created three other [[RecycledINSPACE Sub-Towns]]: Modern Town; which has more of a Modern motif; Sci-Fi Town, which has a Sci-Fi motif, and The Hamlet, which is a lower-power Western-style setting. The Hamlet has since been abandoned.

In recent times, the improving servers of [=GitP=] have lead to New Town being nearly abandoned as people returned to Old Town - and, especially, to the "Acronymia" universe...

Both worlds are now one and the same, is known as a world called "the nexus". This is basically a world where everything is possible, and where people can come from any universe, fictional or real. A concept known as the "omniverse" is sometimes invoked, referring to the infinite expanse of every possible universe that ever was/is/will be/can be/could be/would have been/might be/should be/sorta is/et cetera. The Nexus is sometimes said to be an omniversal crossroads.

** Thryza wears this trope like a pair of favorite jeans. As does The Many.

* CanonDiscontinuity - Taken to the logical extreme; everyone has their own view of the town and hardly any are consistent with one another.
** The [=ACROverse=] is rather more consistent, fortunately.
* CensorBox - In the Town's case, the Censor Box is a curtain that appears whenever characters have sex

** Pesty is nearly a patron saint of this trope, along with being [[TroubledButCute Gr]][[ProudWarriorRaceGuy an]][[CowboyCop t's]] [[GenkiGirl Genki Wife]] and a StrangeGirl and AttentionDeficitOohShiny and... let's face it, Pesty is a relatively tropey character.

* DeusSexMachina - Faye.
** Angela. Ye gawds, Angela... her followers, the Angelicans, extend this.
** Pixie used to do this a lot.
** Carrie used to be this.
*** Beans took a look at his characters one day and said, "Well, shiver me shamrocks. Most of my characters are lesbians, emotionally scarred, and/or wacky." In self-parody, he created Carrie's followers called the Sable Guides, who are lesbian emo ditzes.

* EldritchAbomination - Draken. As well as Zee, Dyna, Avatar, and sorta Pesty, though they're generally [[DidWeJustHaveTeaWithCthulhu nice.]] The Arch-Dadaist might be a less-nice one.
* EmotionlessGirl - Umbrella-Chan.

* {{The Grim Reaper}} - Carrie (that is, Carrion the New Death Inaugurated) except sort of not. She is a death goddess, but a [[DontFearTheReaper really, really nice one]]. She nurses "newlydead" babies at her own breast if their mothers aren't around, and enjoys helping souls get to their afterlives.
* GunFu - Yamako Katsuragi's favorite fighting style with some Wuxia mixed in.

* {{Loads and Loads of Characters}}

* MamaBear - Most mothers in Town tend to be this. [[PapaWolf The fathers]] aren't all that different. Especially Tobias.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast - Carrie's full name was ''Carrion McKaura'' (that's a negative-ish word [carrion is essentially roadkill] and two hard K sounds)... but later, after marrying Chris, she became '''Carrion Grimm'''. However, Carrie's not evil at all.
* NeutralGood - All of iElf's non-evil characters, especially Din. Also, Carrion at times.

* {{Psychopomp}} - Among others, the Psychopomp Pantheon Confederacy; its members are [[WellIntentionedExtremist Cruelty]], [[BoisterousBruiser Anger]], [[EmoTeen Despair]], [[HardDrinkingPartyGirl Psychosis]], and [[DontFearTheReaper Joy]].

* RealitySubtext - Din has a lot of this. offten also happens if a player is banned, or leaves.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter - played straight with [=DeBunny=], Mini-Maph, Atreyu the Masked Llama and Deadly the Raccoon, and subverted with District.

So many.



* SweetPollyOliver - Thryza sort of does this a lot. Her previous outfit was a man's three-piece suit that looked like it was stolen from the set of ''Public Enemies''. Not a {{Bifauxnen}} due to not actually looking like a dude.



* WalkingWasteland - Carrie was this.



** Carrie. She was cursed to harm everything her hands touched, and her parents were killed for it. She lived on the run, was nearly raped, was captured by hobgoblins as a living battery, then made it to HALO. There, she had oodles of relationship trouble, ended up being manipulated by an evil half-goddess, killed herself, came back as a death goddess, broke up with her lover, but got married to her! Yay! And then DIVORCE. Then she got hammered and slept with Chris (A dude?!) and PREGNANCY. However, since the two of them fell in in love and got engaged with the blessing of Carrie's ex-wife, she's getting better.

** Summer, the catgirl who was recently freed from slavery, is this.
** Din... just Din. Bushrager (the player ) recently stated that he'd love to giver her a hug every time something happens to her.



* UndyingLoyalty- Din is a good example as she listens to what her adoptive family has to say, and is loyal to them, but also will not let them come to any harm.
