A few years ago, I was part of a lovely rp you might remember as elysiumisland. Their main plot was about an island that was considered paradise. It was a safe haven for mutants that were seeking safety from the mutants on the Mainland. Another large part of their plot was the divide between the “good” and the “corrupt” mutants. The Good half believed that humans were equal and strives to bridge the gap between mutants and humans to reach peace. The Corrupt half however considered themselves superior to humans and wanted to displace them from power.
Now today I found an RP with a very similar plot. Their plot is about a mutant island that is a sanctuary to mutants with a divide between Peaceful and Righteous mutants, much like the plot of Elysium. And as if that wasn’t fishy enough, I noticed that it was run by one of Elysium’s old members.
I’ve messaged them and they’ve refused to respond so I’ve decided to go public with this information.
preterislandrp is a ripoff of elysiumisland. They may not have taken the work word for word, but they did steal the bare bones of another RP and are trying to call it their own. They have slightly reworded almost everything they have and it’s an insult to the original RP and Admins. One of the admins [ cecaelias ] copyrighted the content of the original RP before it closed and is looking into taking legal action if the RP is not taken down.
Please reblog this to spread the word. Please do not join preterisland, an RP that has stolen someone else’s plot and ideas.
Elysium was the first roleplay that I joined on tumblr. I personally went through some of the pages of Preter’s with my sister and screen shotted the similarities. I understand having a plot about mutants, maybe even a mutant island, and maybe the similarity in a divide aspect. But there are so many similarities in the details that it’s hard to ignore. Not to mention the fact that this person was previously in Elysium, and that they had an rp with a URL that was very similar to the planned sequel to Elysium. This is just very suspicious behavior and unfortunately I have to agree, I would call Preter’s Island plagiarism.
