Your Forum Persona
More information about The Collective, The Ark and the Multiverse can be found here
A Forum Persona
is akin to your playable character in a tabletop campaign and is often linked to the name or "persona" you naturally adopt for yourself when you join the forum. For many of us these characters have grown organically in areas such as the Shoutbox and have recently become a fundamental part of RP on the forum. If you require assistance in understanding or creating a forum persona please check out this
thread in the Writer's Guild. Once you have created your Persona, post it here in the Member Files
and you're ready to play!
The Collective and The Collective Ark
The Collective, as an IC entity, was born from the fact that members tended to adopt a certain Persona in the way in which they posted around the forum. Rather than continuing to allow this creative force to come to nothing, we designed an outlet for it and so Persona RP in the form of The Collective
The Collective are a group of individuals who, either as a result of their own special abilities or exposure to an external force, have become free of the constraints of only having awareness of any one world, realm or 'verse and have, over the years, been brought together to form a trans-multiversal organisation known as The Collective. If you are interested in the origins of the Collective, Forge has kindly written this up for you here
. The base of operations for this group is known as The Ark, a massive structure isolated in a dimension of its own and always roughly the size it needs to be. Within the Ark members of The Collective can find gateways allowing travel to almost any location throughout the multiverse as well as living quarters if they so choose to live onboard.
is the nucleus of both the Ark and the Collective. A large, open space adaptable in size, shape and style dependent on the whims of its occupants. This is the central gathering point for members of the Collective and any favoured allies that have been permitted access to our headquarters. This is both the brain and heart of the Ark. A place where members can gather, socialise, scheme and plan any number of adventures or quests across the greater Multiverse. The outer rim of this space is littered with doors leading to long corridors which are, in turn, littered with doors leading to a huge multitudes of realms and pocket realms (staff-offices and individual member-rooms among them) linking the Ark and the Collective with the furthest reaches of the Multiverse.
The aim of this solely IC thread is for everyone to have the opportunity to take their Personas for a spin on a daily basis, to develop relationships (be they friendships, intense love stories or fierce rivalries) among characters and to act as a spring-board for a multitude of different RPs across the expansive Multiverse. Much like the existing SB, this space can be whatever your characters wish it to be at any point in time. Want a tree to sit in? Have at it. A pond to brood beside? Go right ahead. In keeping with the concept of this new, improved persistent world as a whole, we want this space to be open to creative interpretation
This is where persona profiles are posted. Only one topic is permitted per persona.
People of Interest
For the following:
- Character Archives: These should contain any characters that do not have an awareness of the wider Multiverse or the Collective. To put this in context, this will be any character that is only aware of the world in which they exist. These character profiles should be consolidated into one thread.
- RP Character Archives: Having trouble keeping track of character sheets in an RP? You can post an Archive for characters linked to a specific RP here. These character profiles should be consolidated into one thread.
- Secondary Characters/NPCs: Secondary Persona Characters or other characters with some link to or awareness of the Collective and wider Multiverse. (Cupid, Stanley the Bunny, Protagonists from the Forum War). Each of these characters get their own thread.
his board is for the profiles of any network or organisation that may be of interest to the Collective. Factions, groups, organisations - if there's a bunch of people operating together within the Multiverse, this is where we want to read all about them.
The Multiverse is composed of endless realms, worlds and dimensions. This is where the Collective store all of the information its members amass about the worlds they visit. Looking for a destination for you next adventure? Want to share information on a world you've recently visited? This is where to go.
