Dark Metal is a MUSH - a 'Multi-User Shared Hallucination.'  A MUSH is something like a complex, heavily customized chatroom in which players can create characters, move from room to room in an interactive world, and participate in text-based roleplay, with tools to help track stats, calculate and roll dice, and many more elaborate toys.  This particular MUSH is based on the White Wolf Old World of Darkness theme (revised edition), set in a futuristic, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic version of Los Angeles and the surrounding territories.  We support many of the OWoD systems, including Vampire, Werewolf (Garou, Bastet, Corax, Ratkin), Mage, Mortal+ (Sorcerers/Psychics and Cyber), and garden-variety humans.
