Hell'o

Post by Skaldia » Wed Oct 17, 2018 10:11 pm

Hi. Name's Skaldia. Call me Skal, Skaldia, or that ugly bastard. Your choice. Although I might not answer to the last. Alas, the Gods are fickle.

I'm 28. RPing for 17. You name it, I've done it. My favorites are FT (Future Time for you plebes) such as cyberpunk and science fiction, modern fantasy (dragons burning LA, like we all haven't wanted that to happen), and medieval fantasy, although I'm a sucker for a well-crafted OOC. I tend to prefer grittier, mature themes over lighthearted ones. I tend to love crafting my apps and even get in on some world-building and what have you.

More about me, let's see: I am a father of one adorable little boy. I like long walks on the beach, blecch. No more, please. Suffice to say I am a living, breathing, beautiful man. I think. Therefore I don't know. Whatever.

Anything else, just ask.

Howdy, Skaldia, and welcome (again) to the Collective. As promised I'm going to start you off with a little info burst to help you settle into the site, so brace yourself. Ready?

First things first - check check out our Newbie Guide. The Guide's a good starting point exploring RPC, and is packed full of useful information; things like our rules, how our persistent world works, where we keep everything, where we've placed the bear traps - you know, basic newbie stuff. Also, keep in mind that if you ever find yourself absolutely stuck, you can always grab a Staff member - we're the ones with the fancy green or purple usernames, and we're at least 91.6% helpful.

If you want to jump straight into writing, we have a list of our Always Open RP's. Most are low pressure, "drop-in, drop-out" games that don't require too much pre-planning or character building, so they're pretty good for getting accustomed to roleplaying here.

If you're looking to get into a more involved roleplay, but either don't have a specific idea in mind or haven't fully fleshed out your own ideas, you can check out our Interest Checks section. This is where people post ideas that they're thinking of turning into a game, and it's a good place to find people who are looking for the same thing you are.

I'm also gonna give you a quick run down on our RP sections, just so you know what they all are;
  • Worlds of Magic - For typically 'fantasy' roleplays
  • Worlds of Technology - For typically 'sci-fi' roleplays
  • Worlds of Balance - For roleplays with a mix of technology and magic, like modern fantasy
  • Worlds of Realism - For realistic roleplays
  • Private Roleplays - For small roleplays between two or three people, of any type
And lastly, if you like what you see here, you might also consider voting for us on Top RP Sites, on Top Sites List and on RPG Fix. 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.

That's it! Hopefully you'll find all of that helpful, but like I said, if anything stumps you don't hesitate to let us know. And with that done, how about an ice-breaker? Where did Skaldia come from? Is it a tried-and-tested username you've stuck to down the years, or did you whip it up just recently?

Welcome Skaldia, it's nice to get a bit more background than our little introduction over on Discord allowed.

I'm Nay, officially the friendliest member (as voted in a not so recent poll, so I might soon lose my crown 🙁). As My little outburst in Discord might have indicated, I am also 28! I also have an adorable little human, however mine is a girl lol, you'll probably get to know a lot about Small, she's kind of an unofficial mascot.

I'm sure you'll find plenty to interest you here, it's a little quiet right now but things are starting to pick up again. Hope to see you around!

Salutations, Skal. Pleasure to make your acquaintance and I do hope you enjoy your time here among the Collective be it swift and fleeting or a more enduring union.

I wanted to say, while it was fresh in my mind, that whist I am not one for FT styled roleplays I found the OOC for and read the entirety of your Ark City roleplay and was quite enthusiastically impressed. I won't be joining. I'm the sort who has to be dragged kicking and screaming into the future. That said; it was quite good. Well organized for the most part whilst being both informative, and at times given just enough flavor via word-choice to keep the majority of it engaging.

I look forward to potentially roleplaying with you somewhere down the line.

While I am saddened to hear that you won't be joining the RP, I understand. To each their own. I thank you though for the welcome and hope to RP with you down the road as well.
