Gryphons of the Mist, or GotM is a public forum used for gryphon-related roleplay also known as GRPG. GotM ran the strongest during its prime between the years of 2001 and 2006. The majority of GotM follows rules set in place by a specific GRPG style sub-categorized as GRPG:SE.
The GotM forum allows any species of character to roleplay, but it is preferred that all characters be of gryphon origin. Veteran players in the guild may make outside species feel unwelcome and neglect any roleplay that would otherwise be welcomed in the forum. The players on this forum seem unable to trust any different breed of character besides their own and those that resemble them, i.e. the main leaders - Brute Gryphons.
Due to the fact that the forum is very old and contains moderate pornographic material, most fresh GRPG is done nightly in private conferences with no interruptions. In GRPG, most races of furs are welcomed but, unless they are of gryphon origin, they may not feel welcome.
 Brute Gryphons
Brute gryphons are a strong, durable breed of gryphon created by Gryph, and thought to be originated from the very first breed of gryphon forged by the gods. It is for this reason that the brute gryphon bloodline cannot die from natural causes, although they still age. In their prime, a brute gryphon can go thousands of years without appearing much older.
Brutes gryphons are uniquely identified from normal gryphons because of their size difference, which allows them to tower over normal gryphons.
Their teeth resemble snake fangs but there are more than sixty of them in an adult brute's mouth. Like fangs, they can be hidden inside the recesses of the maw, but they are pushed in/out through the use of a complex hydraulics system inside the beak.
GRPG:SE is a sub-group of GRPG that takes place in a secluded beachside forest setting, created by Gryph and led by the character Gryph Sylvr who is the Alpha-male of the main clan in GRPG:SE. This particular RP revolves around a clan of gryphons known as the Silver Elite, and their struggle to survive against the Hunters who want to kill their breed for their teeth, which creates a very potent cerum used as a base product in many aphrodesiacs.
 The Plot Thickens
Knowing this financial gain, a certain select few brute gryphons in the Silver Elite choose to sell theirselves and their lesser kin in order to make profit, seeing as the teeth can grow back in time, and the cerum is in the roots of the teeth, which can be extracted from a living specimen with careful practice.
One other motivator for a few less-than-reputable clan members is control over the astral entity known as the Chronogryphon. This being is worshipped as a deity by most members of the clan. It is rumored that the very first gryphons were crafted in the image of the Chronogryphon, so in a sense, this creature is their father. Control of the Chronogryphon can only be obtained by the righteous, and it is whoever has control of this deity that certain members of GRPG:SE seek to capture for evil purposes.
