Welcome to Givin' the Devil His Due, we are an AU 6th Season Supernatural RPG. The plot diverges from from the show canon at the moment of Crowley and Castiel's Deal--in our world, that deal was never struck. Instead, a different and much darker bargain was reached, one which even principal players don't yet understand. Please register with your characters first and last name. DEAN WINCHESTER
It took them five months to get Sam his soul back, but once the younger Winchester was restored, things immediately started going to Hell. Literally. First the Wall that was supposed to protect Sam from his own memories failed. All of a sudden demons were everywhere, working on projects no hunter could understand, things that made no sense that anyone could patch together. Then the angels started acting openly on earth, making everything even more confusing and dangerous. Sam and Dean's relationship suffered under the strain, a few months ago they split and started hunting separately. Because there was so much to do, they said. Just temporarily, they said. But there are events taking shape that are already working to push the brothers back toward one another.
The dead are returning. Familiar faces, old friends and foes who ought to be long gone to their rest. Some, the angels have been bringing back. Others are Hell's avatars. The angels teeter on the brink of civil war, the demons squabble among themselves to find a new King, and all sorts of old debts are coming in due.
♔ Newly opened site! So come get the canons while they're open.
Originals are also welcome, so feel free to join in the fun <3

To survive in this world, there's a few things you might need to know.
The Devil's Trap:
This is a 'quick and dirty' trap, one which can be put together quickly and will absolutely confine a demon within its circle as long as whoever creating it is accurate with their proportions. These can be lain into dirt, painted onto floors or ceilings, even inked onto the inner lid of a car's trunk to capture and contain the unholy. However, this form of trap will not prevent demons from using their powers, even up to making deals or trying to corrupt the world around them. Anybody who has been fighting or even aware of demons for a while and who has done minimal research into the matter could learn about the Devil's Trap, and could have learned to recreate it quickly. After all, there's a lot of motivation to get it right.
The Heptagram Trap:
A far more elaborate form of Devil's Trap, one which takes seven days and nights to construct and requires special materials, purification rituals, and so on to create. However, once it has been created, a Heptagram is a far more secure trap for the demonic, there just isn't getting any out of it. Their powers cannot escape its hold, and they can't call to others of their kind while inside it. The heptagram is complicated and obscure. Only those who have done extensive research into the matter would know of its existence, much less how to construct one properly.
The symbol which protects against demonic possession is simple. The process needed to make it actually effective is not. It's not as easy as getting a tattoo or a cheap pewter necklace made up while claiming it's the logo of your favorite obscure metal band. The medium--whether it be a bracelet, a charm, or a tattoo--must have salt, cold iron, and silver mixed into it, and certain prayers have to be said while working different parts of the design. If you can find somebody capable of creating one, they're great, but they're harder to get your hands on than it might seem.
Angel Banishing Sigil:
Drawing this symbol with blood and then touching the center of it will temporarily banish any angels in the immediate area. However, at this time, angels are appearing openly on earth for the first time in centuries, and even then only to a selected few people. Only those who are dedicated scholars of angelic/religious/Enochian lore would have any idea of the existence of this symbol, and even then they would have no real reason to believe that it would work any better than the hundreds of other sigils that turn up in Enochian lore which don't do a damned thing. Very, very few people in the world know about this symbol and how to use it.

A - M
Vulnerable to Being tricked into consuming human breastmilk.
The Black Annis (one-eyed, features of a demon, claws, blue face) was said to hide in an oak; she was a cannibal who preferred children. The Baba Yaga (a russian Banshee) lives deep in the forest in a magical hut. While the Baba Yaga also eats children, she's also supposed to be a source of magical help.
Vulnerable to: Justice for their killer or those who wronged them in life will lay them to rest.
Black Dogs are most often seen on roads or other places where people move from one locality to another, including footpaths, bridges, crossroads, gates, doors, stairs and corridors. Another common haunt for the Black Dogs is graveyards, leading some people to suspect that these dogs tend to haunt Spirit Paths.
Some people believe that a Black Dog is an omen of death, and that to see one means either you or a family member will die. In ancient European folklore, the dog is seen as both the guardian and consumer of dead spirits; one such belief is referred to as the Wild Hunt, where a pack of dogs and a master of the hunt fly through the sky looking for lost souls. Others believe Black Dogs are helpful, leading lost travelers or protecting them from harm. Black Dogs should not be confused with hellhounds, which are an entirely different phenomenon.
Meanwhile, the children-changelings feed off the human mother's synovial fluid by suckling with their round, many-toothed mouth at the back of her neck. The changelings take their place in human homes as soon as they are formed, and feed off the mother until she wastes away. Any other humans who come between the changeling child and its prey are murdered.
The true nature of the changelings - their discolored, slimy skin, hollow eyes and round mouth with many teeth - can be seen only in reflection.
Vulnerable to: Fire. When the mother-changeling is destroyed, the child-changelings die as well.
The virus may be detected by traces of sulfur detectable in the blood within a few hours of exposure. Symptoms begin to manifest within four hours, and the disease is thought to be incurable. Infectees are not merely hyperaggressive, but show an ability and use weaponry in their attempts to kill or deliberately infect others.
Vulnerable to: Unknown. Possible angelic or demonic cures?
It is commonly described in legend as luring people by calling their name, drawing them deeper into the forest until the Crocotta would devour them. In modern times, the Crocotta has been known to contact people by phone or computer, imitating the voice of a dead loved one and convincing the victim to kill themselves.
Vulnerable to: Conventional weapons.
Vulnerable to: Destroying the altar that its master is using to control it. Very bright light.
Vulnerable to: Silver weaponry dipped in lamb's blood.
Vulnerable to: Salt or iron will dispel them temporarily. To dispel them permanently, their remains must be located, salted, and then burned.
Vulnerable to: Must be reasoned with or shocked out of their loop to dispel them.
Vulnerable to: Can either be dispelled as ghosts, or reasoned with as best as possible, especially if justice has been brought against those who wronged them.
Vulnerable to: Can be killed only by decapitation or total destruction of the head.
Hellhounds are invisible to humans. It is said once they have the scent of a person they won't stop until they catch them, but they can be kept at bay for a time with Goofer Dust, Devil's Shoestring, and salt.
Vulnerable to: Salt, iron, explosives.

N - Z
Vulnerable to: Brass weaponry.
Rawhead (also Rawhead and Bloody Bones):
The following rhyme originated in Yorkshire/Lancashire:
Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Steals naughty children from their homes,
Takes them to his dirty den,
And they are never seen again.
Vulnerable to: Electricity
Vulnerable to: Fire
Vulnerable to: Silver weaponry to the heart.
Shtriga (or Striga):
Vulnerable to: When feeding (and only then) they are vulnerable to being shot with consecrated wrought iron buckshot or pistol rounds.
The siren's call is transmitted through saliva. It first charms its way through the victim's defenses by reading their mind and pretending to be the 'perfect match' for the victim. It then infects them by fluid transfer. The infection leaves traces of oxytocin in the victim's blood - this is a love hormone that provokes feelings of euphoria.
Vulnerable to: A bronze dagger dipped into the blood of someone it has infected. The death of a siren releases its victims from its spell.
Various Native American tribes tell slightly different stories about this creature and refer to it by different names – Wendigo , Witigo , Witiko and Wee-Tee-Go – but each version roughly translates to mean the evil spirit that devours mankind . Around 1860, a German explorer translated Wendigo as cannibal.
Wendigoes are believed to live in the northern woods of Minnesota and in the north central regions of Canada . Kenora , Canada , has been given the title of Wendigo Capital of the World by many. Sightings of the creature in this area have continued well into the new millennium.
Wendigoes are generally rumored to be gigantic spirits, over fifteen feet tall, lanky and with glowing eyes, long yellowed fangs, terrible claws and overly long tongues. Sometimes they are said to have a sallow, yellowish skin; other times they are described as being matted with hair. The Wendigo's full powers have never been recorded. The creature excels at stealth and is a near-perfect hunter, knowing and using every inch of its territory – caves, hills, trees and bushes. Some stories posit that Wendigoes can control the weather through the use of dark magic.
Vulnerable to: Fire, explosions
In shifted form, a werewolf has canine-like teeth and claws, and enhanced strength and agility. They do not remember anything of their wolf-time activities after they revert to human form.
Vulnerable to: It is believed that the only way to kill a werewolf is with a silver bullet, but in fact can be killed by any wound that destroys the heart or the brain.
Woman in White
The story involves a beautiful woman in love with a nobleman with whom she had two children though her lover refused to marry her. When he finally deserted her and married another woman, the girl went mad with rage and stabbed her two children. Authorities found her wandering the street, sobbing, her clothes covered in blood. She was charged with infanticide and sent to the gallows.
Ever since, it is said, the ghost of La Llorona walks the country at night in her bloody dress, crying out for her murdered children. If she finds any child, she's likely to carry it away with her to the nether regions, where her own spirit dwells.
Women in White are ghosts who seek out living people (usually men) who are unfaithful or dishonest and punishing them with death which usually mimics their own.
Vulnerable to: Forcing them to confront their own sins.
Vulnerable to: Silver weaponry.
