RP Theft Altert: Heroes of Humanity

It is saddening that I have to make another post like this, but its been brought to my attention that the RP Heroes of Humanity consisting of several of our former members and some old mods have stolen a large amount of creative property from Save This City and our previous RP, Into Each Generation. And we aren’t the only ones who have noticed. Here is an ask that was sent days before any of us found the RP.

Each mod of this RP is one of our previous members. Some members are our old mods. These were mods who were recent additions to the team when our structures had been in place for some time, not mods who brought those ideas to our games. I believe this is an important thing to distinguish.

Just a small number of things they have stolen are:

  • Similar themes and color scheme and both comic themed RPs
  • Similar rules format and near identical wording in places, all in the same order
  • Use of “seasons” for telling plots
  • Plots of the Week
  • Previouslys
  • Our etiquette guide
  • Our locations format
  • Online interactions with person to person interactions only allowed to take place in chatzy or para.
  • Costumed/Masked PMs to differentiate personas
  • An OOC quotes tag on the main.
  • Para mashups
  • In character questionnaire challenges
  • Same character bio format and use of both tags and singular character pages for preferences (most rps use one of the other)
  • Same relationships, triggers page and follow page formats (all the same categorization and formatting)


Some of these are minor things and some far larger but the fact all these things exist in the same RP and our statcounter shows them having been stalking our page (which we will not post screenshots of for privacy reasons) indicates they have almost identically copied our whole structure and mode of operation. A lot of this is very unique to our games, which have been around for over two and a half years now. Some RPs do one or two of these things, but no other RP does them all, in the exact same way. We will always say that we don’t mind the occasional idea being used for inspiration here and there and have given previous games and mods permission to implement some of our ideas in the past. A problem arises when someone copies almost our whole game identically.

We also have reason to believe the members of this RP have been spreading discord, attacking our mods in their OOC chat and spreading rumors that have disrupted the course of our game and begun to create an unsafe environment for our players. This is not acceptable. I urge anyone who is considering joining this game to think twice before doing so. I have included screenshots below as evidence. Please reblog and get word out.
