Edolon: A Mature Medieval Court RP

Years of brutal war have passed and a new king sits the gryphon throne, but new enemies rise up within the realm as nobles pawn their jewels, priests consign faithful and heretic alike to the cleansing flames, and enemies gather in the shadows...

It is the year 2005, and the Master, as Harold Saxon, has first taken over Great Britain, and then from there the Planet Earth. But there is one thing he has not realized. The Paradox which he created in order to take over has done damage to the walls between Time, Space, and other universes that he had never accounted for. Damage which is making them blur and blend.

These wanderers arrive in a strange new world, uncertain, untried, many of them needing to learn the language, and to find friends that can help them survive in an environment where even the freest are not free. Slave camps are common place, and death is an every day occurrence, though if you catch the Leader on a good day even that is not permanent. At a price.

Out of Time is a Doctor Who based pan fandom forum role play where just about anything you can imagine could happen, all it takes is a bit of cooperation and imagination. Romance, political intrigue, odd relationships, friendships between characters you would never dream of, all of it in a very fascinating and fun mix of just about any world you could imagine.

Het, yaoi, and yuri are not only allowed, but encouraged, and NC-17 material as well. This is a dark and gritty landscape, and such things are to be expected in such a place. The only thing that is asked is respect for your fellow players in all aspects of play.

There will be death, pain, rebirth, torture, all manner of twisting of reality.


Liquid Snake has returned from the Afterlife bigger and badder than ever with a new Machine to wreck havoc.
Having reunited with Ocelot, they have managed to get hold of the Tardis from one of the Time Lords, Ten --and blackmailed him into surrendering it -- now Liquid has a toy that he uses to randomly bring in people from all over the world--- all over the universe really-- and Life and Death are no obstacle.
Once he managed to unlock the secrets of the Tardis, Liquid rigged a way to remotely control its capabilities.
Sometimes for amusement, sometimes for malicious reasons, Liquid can bring in someone from anywhere, can literally raise the dead, because he can simply pluck them from a time before they lost their physical form.
He is not sane, far from it, and this only adds to the danger and threat to the world.
Shadow Moses Island is now a huge settlement with many people living around it, a massive Fortress that is watched over by Liquid, Ocelot, Loki, Vergil Sparda, many of the original SM crew.
Fort Freedom is the seat of the Resistance, and Liquid allows them to exist only because it amuses him-- that amusement could end at any time, and for any reason. They are located in the Rockies, in a fortified Citadel well guarded, and among the personages there are Big Boss and the Boss, who are the Leaders.
From time to time Liquid sends attacks of various sorts against them, and they have so far survived.
Don't Tread On Me - the DTOM -- they are the remnants of the USA government, with Patriot and Philosopher holdouts and supporters among them. They strongly desire the deaths of Liquid and Ocelot, and have already sentenced them to death by hanging in absentia. They have no love for Fort Freedom either, seeing them as radicals.
If you get pulled in here be aware that the cities are now all GEAR/GEKKO bases, and up and down the coasts there are rows of massive super-nukes, the Cronos and the Titan, and modified Minutemen. Life goes on, life always goes on, and there are drugs, whores, black markets, crying babies and housewifely drudgery in this world, just as there was before Liquid unlocked his terrible secret.
You might land anywhere, and your fate might be kind or cruel, depending on the whims of a mad God.
There's no rhyme or reason to things now: The TARDIS has begun to malfunction, upset by Liquid's toying with it, and although it's still under Liquid's control, it has started to pull people randomly, without the need of Liquid's express orders. Things can only get more insane, so feel free to join in the madness!

I apologise in advance for making this post so wordy!

Okay, so my fiancée and I are currently plotting out an RP-verse that we'll be making a community on dreamwidth for in the near future. I wanted some input from other roleplayers though, as I'm a little stuck with a certain aspect of it.

The entire point of the plot, initially, was to get a scenario that would give otherwise normal people a 'change'/'powers' and we've elected to go with the timeless trope of Radiation. Now since I didn't want to gloss over that fact too much, I actually did a lot of research into nuclear power plants, how they work and what can go wrong, and I have a fairly detailed idea in my head about how a plant will go about causing the mutations (with a good deal of suspension of belief still, but that goes without saying in something that includes sci-fi elements).

How much of that should I bother explaining in the 'prologue'/explanation of the RP? I want it to be clear that this roleplay should have a foot in the door of reality at all times despite the fantastical idea of people gaining powers via radiation, but I also don't want it to be terribly boring. What level of explanation do you like to see from roleplays?

The second issue is politics: since the blast radius will be contained, a good deal of the plot looks like it may revolve around the fact that the outside world quaratines those who have 'changed' and will go through the usual turmoil of 'Should we help them?' versus 'This is terrible, they need to be destroyed!' etc. I don't want it to completely overshadow the roleplay of the characters "inside" the quarantined area, but again, I'm looking to keep some semblance of realism. I was thinking of posting weekly or bi-weekly a fake 'news article' giving a summation of any changes in their public relations with the outside (will there be food drops over the area to help them, will armed guards now be posted around the area they can't go past, and so on).

Would that be useful to you in a roleplay, or would you join a roleplay with mutations and a post-apocalyptic setting (because to the people inside the blast radius, the world is now akin to that) more for just having fun with powers and not care for an over-arching storyline?

Okay, anyone who read that: thank you. Sorry that this comm's first post in nine weeks is so damn long. xD I'm really curious on feedback from other roleplayers/collaborative writers, though!

Hey all...

The normal way of doing this seems to be to drop your little ad bomb and run, then see who it hits.

Because of the nature of this community, we thought we'd make it a little more personal.

Pax Letale is a roleplaying community, yes, but we tend to view it and treat it as a collaborative writing community. There is a long-term, overarching story to which players are welcome to contribute, there are a variety of characters of many stripes. A few months ago, we had a change of management and a subsequent reboot, and we've established a strong group of writers whose characters are now getting to know each other, forging bonds, building story among themselves... but soon, things will take a darker turn.


We strongly encourage anyone with a taste for myth, narrative, an overarching plot that provides opportunity for everyone to get involved, dark story, and solid writing to take a look!

Hope to see you soon,

The Pax Mods


In Southern California, there recently opened a new luxury apartment building. Impeccably designed, impossibly convenient, ideally located, Pax Letale is the sort of residential Shangri La where Southern Californians spend all manner of favors and years trying to secure a spot. But Pax doesn't have a waiting list, nor can a place there be bought or sold. The people who find their way to Pax Letale belong there.

Every tenant of Pax is a reincarnated deity whose worshipers are by and large long dead. Once very real, these gods began to fade as science and reason dispelled the probability of their existence. Reborn as mortals, their essences remain, waiting to be awakened. Somehow, sometimes one by one, sometimes in groups or pairs, these creatures of destiny have discovered Pax, and have not been able to resist its pull.

For at Pax Letale, the awakening has begun. As these gods rediscover themselves and each other, the seemingly invisible but ubiquitous management tracks each of them quite closely, and the very building itself seems to have an agenda of its own. And as the gods made humans in their own image - or humans made them in theirs - so will the the behavior of the people of Pax turn as dark as their myths. Blood, strife, sex, petty plots, torture - even murder will wind their ways into Pax Letale.

A lovely place. A peculiar place. A dangerous place.

Available Tenants:

Enki is the Babylonian god of water, crafts, intelligence and creation. Twin of and best friend of Ereshkigal, goddess of the Underworld, he is often seen as a positive foil to his brother Enlil, utilizing his magic and cunning for the good of others; he brings aid to deities and humans alike, serving as a rare masculine nuturer in a chaotic and often oppressively patriarchal pantheon. He will likely have connections to Tiamat, Ereshkigal, and other Sumero-Babylonian deities.

Brighid is the Celtic goddess of the forge, inspiration, compassion and creativity, and a patron goddess of artists, craftsmen, and other creative types. In her mortal life, she may have connections to her parents, her siblings, or any of the Celtic pantheon.

Masauwu is a Hopi deity sometimes called the Skeleton Man, Keeper of Fire, Spirit of Death, and the Master of the Fourth (present) World. He is depicted as a dark-skinned man wearing a mask; sometimes the creature beneath this mask is described as handsome, sometimes as a disfigured monster. Connections to Native American deities and gods and goddesses of death or enlightenment are likely.


Don't see a tenant that interests you? Other deities and pantheons are welcome - pick one of the active pantheons in the game, or talk to a mod if there's one you don't see, and make your modern god as you see him/her/it.

Holds and applications are being accepted for all available pantheons.

Currently looking for ALL HELLSING AND MGS characters, all needed, for multi story RPGS board!

VERY Yaoi friendly, no censorship!!

Have you ever had a desire to take a much loved character, toss them out of their normal environs, just to see what would happen? Get them into situations that in their home "canon" would never be possible? Give them a chance to shine, in ways they normally never have the opportunity? Then come join us!

We are a multi-fandom, multi story rp,

We are Yaoi/Yuri/Het/gender bender/Mpreg friendly, and are willing to discuss other content you may have a desire to bring in. We are darker themed, for the most part.

NC- 17 very much welcome, but is not mandatory, and there WILL be sections for PG/R rated RP if asked for. Character death/torture very much allowed, but MUST be discussed and approved by those involved.

Plots are open, and the one who has created the plot for a particular rp story will be allowed to maintain creative control, as "storyteller", of that story. That does not however mean they are allowed to control the characters, simply the plot itself. Multiples of 'taken' chars are allowed, but must be in different RP's, unless there is reason to be mingled. There may occasionally be Shota, if that bothers you, you may avoid those stories. We allow for and encourage 'surprises', as long as they do not involve something drastic to another char, or a drastic change to the plot of someone else's story. OCs ARE allowed.

All in all, our basic motto is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Communication, and courtesy, and we want to provide a decent and friendly atmosphere for our players.

So if you are interested, please contact :

  With Live Journal being under attack .. and also thinking the DW is open to a trying to get a RPG going here, I'm wondering what you, other writers/gamers are looking for.  I have several interests but finding a group to play with.

What theme are you looking for?  What type of game do you wish you can find?

I myself like prison, post-war/end of the world, even celeb settings.

If a few people get with a same idea, I'm more the willing to come up with the community and get it going.

I stopped role playing about two years ago. But since I joined Dreamwidth, I've been looking for some place like this. :3 I'm very happy I joined.
OH! I'm Sam, by the way. Pleased to meet all of you!
You'll see more of me around here, I'll keep in touch!

Hello, all! I’m excited to find a community that speaks to my favorite aspect of role-playing – collaborative writing.

I started out on a small message board RP headed by excellent writers, got utterly spoiled, and never found another place that felt comfortable. Although I still talk – and occasionally write – with my two main partners from there, the last year has been dire on the RP front due to their lack of free time and my intense focus on finishing a novel. Now the novel is in the boring proofreading stage, and I’m nostalgic for the sort of immediate creative excitement that goes with RPing.

While mainly I’m interested in incorporating folklore and myth into fiction, character-driven plots, and writing for writing’s sake, I will get all idealistic and frothy about the great benefits of cooperative writing – which is why I keep making forays into RP, only to drop out because my basic narrative kinks (nonromantic relationships, neuroatypical minds, and mortality, among others) don’t seem very common in the community.

I’m rather curious, actually – what is it that drew you to RP, and what keeps you coming back?

(And if I’ve said anything interesting, do feel free to message me; although I’m a hesitant conversationalist, I really will be happy to talk.)

Hey, glad to find this community. Pretty nice.

I thought maybe some people would be interested in this genealogy software I use. It's amazing how much information you can get into this thing as it is. If you customize it with your own fields (you can find tutorials for this and everything else on the site), you can add pretty much anything you like, as much as you like. You don't have to have thirty generations of people for it to be full of more stuff than you can imagine. You can generate an online report of the information, which they'll host on their site for free. It'll upload all the pictures you include, and create time lines of the information for you. You can customize the style of the web page and all that. You can look through a bunch of examples of the web pages it produces here.

Sorry if it sounds like I work for these people, I assure you that's not the case. I just love this stuff. Hope someone finds it useful. ;)

Does anyone here have their own world (or worlds) that they enjoy building up, and are interested in having other players import characters (or create new ones, specific to the world) to run around in? It's a very common thing for group roleplays -- it's almost a necessity, really!

But... I never see this sort of thing in one-on-one ads. That could be because I'm looking in the wrong places (most ads include people speaking about what fandoms they play and what characters they seek/are willing to write for, and that's so very not my cup of tea!) but I so very rarely find anyone who has a world that they're building and is exuberant about it and wants to share it as a setting and a possibly massive plot bunny to work with. Or if they do have one, they're very hesitant to speak about it at all. What's with that?

So while waiting for posts to a 1-on-1, I think I'll work on writing openers and entrances of some characters I'm working on and post them to my dw. Not a complete waste of time, I guess. There are characters that are in my head but I'm not yet willing to commit them to a game.

What do you do between roleplays? How do you satiate the craving when it hits? Where do you go to find people to RP with?

And does anyone want to RP? :D

Given the sorts of ideas I've seen around this comm already, I'd like to open a discussion on RP Theory.

on methods and moderation )

That's just my opinion though, and that's only out of the methods I've tried. Have you had any luck in alternative RP methods? What's your RP theory?

Hallo all!

I just realized I forgot to do an introduction, so let me get that out of the way.

I'm Rachel. :)

I was a founding member of a massive Wheel of Time roleplay and loved it there. I was there for.. Shit, something like 5 years, before my disabilities kept me from keeping up.

I've never quite found a roleplay quite like that place. I've dabbled here and there, but that's it. Really, it was more of a collaborative novel than anything else. I would love to get back to writing like that, instead of what roleplaying tends to be nowadays. I loved the expansive plotlines and the ever-evolving world. Really, nothing I've seen gives me the same feeling. Or, worse, if I do feel there's a possibility, things devolve into very limiting cliques. If you aren't one of the "popular" characters, you miss out on almost all of the massive plots. Honestly, that's really quite depressing, because I find that, a lot of times, the characters with smaller roles can end up contributing a lot to the fabric of the story. (If that makes sense.)

Anyway, you'll probably see Sophie around here most, and maybe other characters of mine.

My main writing journal is [personal profile] pens_and_roses, and you're more than welcome to friend it. It's friend's only, but I friend anyone who friends it. You're also welcome to friend this journal, which is my main. :)

Anyways.. That's about it for me! Now I'm going to go catch up on posts. XD
