Haven City is a forum based around a large, urban city. Drawing thematically from Anime & Manga, especially of the Seinen and Josei variety. It's a fun forum dedicated to telling the story of people whom wind up in a new City of Adventure after opening a mysterious Portal Door. These people are offered a Reset Button for their life .
The forum has a broad central concept that allows the telling of many kinds of stories. You can be anything from a evil wizard to a scheming corrupt official to a silly hero. Whatever you desire. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join. We'd be honored to have you. There is no 'test' for entry, because everyone is welcome! Please, come and tell us your story!
