What is the persistent world?
Rather than restricting members to a set of lands or singular world where our characters interact, our persistent world consists of every RP created on the forum and is referred to as the multiverse. At the core of the persistent world is The Collective and its headquarters/home on The Collective Ark.
Is participation in the Persistent world mandatory to RP on this forum?
Not at all.
What is the multiverse?
The multiverse is the term we use to refer to the collection of worlds, realms, and everything members create on the forum. Create a zombie RP or write a short story about a superhero and they're considered part of the multiverse just by way of existing on this forum. At the core of this concept are the more traditional aspects of a persistent world, Personas and The Collective. More information can be found below or by clicking here.
What is a persona?
A persona is essentially a member's main character on the forum and is based on how that member prefers to portray him or herself around the forum. This character is not restricted to any genre or setting, hailing from anywhere in the multiverse, and can be whatever the member wants. Persona's are the multiverse-traveling characters that can be members of The Collective. More information can be found below or by clicking here.
What are The Collective and The Collective Ark?
The Collective is an organization within the Multiverse of the persona's created by forum members. The Collective Ark serves as the home and/or headquarters for the persona's of both members and staff. The persona's of the staff make up The Collective's leadership but don't hold any real authority over the members actions safeguarding the Ark.

Does the Persistent World have a Plot or Timeline I should know about?
The persistent world has no specific storyline or plot as it is made up of every world and role-play created on the forum. That said, The Collective will have it's own ongoing history and there will be opportunities driven by staff and members alike for you to use and develop your personas while contributing to our 'Collective' history.
