Hey Beautiful people,

So, I hate these things, but gotta start somewhere I suppose?

I have been RPing for a very long time, with like a 7 year hiatus for school and such (as you do~). It's gonna take a lot of shaking to get the rust off but I'm always down for a challenge.

I'm into all things urban fantasy, historical fiction/period dramas, political intrigue (assassins and spies). But if the storyline seems interesting, I'll join other things too.

Gonna go lurk the boards now. Hope to see y'all real soon!

A :heart:

Hello hello, Aurelia, and a very warm welcome to the Collective. Don't worry about the rust - I'm sure you'll find plenty here to help you get back in the swing of things.

So. In the interests of getting you settled in, I'm going to chuck an info dump at you. I promise that it's not as bad as it sounds - in fact, it might even be helpful. First and foremost, here's a link to our Newbie Guide. This is something of an introduction to the Collective, and contains a bit of information on things like our our rules, the site layout, our Persistent World, which floor tiles are real and which will drop you into the Rancor pit - you know, little hints and tips. In all seriousness it's a pretty good starting point in terms of getting to grips with the Collective as a whole, so have a look when you get a moment. Also, on the off chance that you have any issues while you're settling in (or if you just fancy a chat) remember that you can always grab a Staff member - we're the ones with the snappy green or purple usernames, so that we can't hide from you among the other members.

As a side note, if you're looking to jump straight into writing, you could check out our list of Always Open RP's. Most are low pressure, "drop-in, drop-out" games, so they're pretty good for scratching that roleplaying itch when you've nothing else going on.

If you like what you see here, you might also consider voting for us on Top RP Sites and Top Sites List. Votes are massively important in helping our community grow, and they're a great way to make the Staff feel loved, so definitely click those links if you have the time.

And that's all from me - you're good to go. As a side note, mostly because I'm nosy, you said you were studying. We have a few students (and ex-students) here. Feel like sharing what academic pursuit you chose?

Hiya Forge!

I was actually already in the middle of the Newbie Guide cause this place is set up a LOT different than my old forum(s) haha. And I found this site through the Top RP site list! So thanks!

Annnnnd I'm on the tail end of my Masters in History (finished all course work, starting my thesis in like, a week and a half). My focus is global/European perspectives of 20th Century war and society. I really really really enjoy WWII (I've never been able to take a WWI class but I'd be interested in any book recommendations in that area if anyone has/wants to send some my way).

My thesis however will be Cold War era ideas of changing nationalities in Eastern Europe based on some 'mythical heritage' (at least that's a fancy phrase I read that sounded cool and now I just have to read all the books to prove it).

But this is the greatest compliment of all. I don't remember what exact controversial thing I said, but I blame it on the tequila.
