• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

More amazing than the dictionary!




An all-volunteer group stationed in Baltimore, Maryland the B.R.O.S. (as they are commonly referred to as) are dedicated to creating the most mind-blowing, face-melting, gut-busting theater ever. Specifically, rock opera. What started with a small group of Goucher college graduates has encompassed a bevy of multi-talented twenty-somethings, whose talents include dance, music, puppetry, fine arts, and craftsmanship. With a total of three original shows, the B.R.O.S. pledge to continue to bring rock to the masses for the next seven thousand years.

The shows created by the B.R.O.S. are as follows:


In a land where music has the power to grow crops and win wars, the dark king Lothorio usurps the throne and bends the people to his will using the foul creature known as the Gründle, an ancient beast that feeds upon the musical talent of others. Only the young prince Bennadon, raised as a farmboy, can wield the Gründlehammer, the ultimate guitar, and save the kingdom.

Double Feature: Amphion and The Terrible Secret of Lunastus

Amphion tells the story of a forbidden love between a court musician and an ambassador's daughter during the time of ancient Justinian. It ends with a guy getting amputated in the name of love. Now that's metal.

The Terrible Secret of Lunastis takes place in the far-flung future. The moon has exploded, and it's up to a small crew to seek out a new homeworld in the depths of space. They land on the planet Lunastis and meet its inhabitants, the Abzug. The crew soon discovers that, though thousands of light years away from Earth, the two planets have a strange connection....

  • The Grand List of Overused Science Fiction Clichés: This show utilizes every single Sci-Fi trope, and loves every minute of it.
  • The Reveal: The connection between Lunastus and Earth is that the Abzug possess a machine that dictates everything that has happened on Earth. They were responsible for every war, genocide, and moon explosion throughout the 120,000,000,000 year history of Earth
