If you would like to add your own setting to this list, feel free to do so. Just leave us enough information that we can join in!

The Nexus Library - tag: [Nexus]

At some point in almost every civilization a Great Library is constructed. By some twisting of the fabric of the multiverse, there is almost always a door concealed from most eyes that leads to the great Nexus Library. The Nexus exists in a pocket dimension that touches many worlds. Watched over by a man known only as the "Keeper of Knowledge" and his librarian staff, This library holds the massed knowledge of each world it has ever touched.

A Feudal Era - tag: [AFE]

Set in Feudal Japan around 500 years ago, this world of demons and magic-wielding priests is based on the InuYasha manga and anime series. Please do not try to interact with main story characters (InuYasha, Kagome, Naraku, etc.). We're borrowing the setting, not stealing the characters.

This was a unique place, a special place. These walls existed in many places and in none. Where waking worlds touch dreaming worlds, as all do, there is a... space. There is no better word for it. Some powerful minds are able to visit this place, though few truly realize what they've done. Some attempt to create their dreams in the waking world. The most powerful of those succeed. When a Dreamer of any world creates something from the Dream, it sometimes takes on a piece of the Dream... and sometimes becomes a part of the Dream. This was one such place. Many great minds had created this very library in many worlds. Each of those worlds have a door to this Nexus Library.

But time passes and worlds change. Sometimes the great Libraries that connect to the Nexus are destroyed - and sometimes just lost. Earth's Library of Alexandria was one of those. And Torân's Conclave Library. But the Keeper had seen a young lady from Earth and on shape-shifter from Torân here, recently. Earth, he could see... the great library there was destroyed - perhaps another Dreamer had built one. But Torân... the library to his own world was lost... sealed by the world's Closing. How did she get here, and what did it mean? Surely the kageh didn't miss the significance. It too would be searching for the door to Torân.

Seeing her puzzled look, Keeper realized she had not spoken her concerns.

"Worry not, your concern was written on your face when I spoke to it earlier. And as I said, it is natural to be uneasy around one of them. It cannot actually harm you here, however. The enchantments laid into the walls would not permit it."

Elaine walked over, only to see Keeper staring at a wall. She stood next to him and looked at the wall, wondering what was so fascinating about it. He seemed to be feeling the wall, as though it concealed a secret passage or something. As weird as this library was, she wouldn't be surprised if there was. There'd probably be more than one secret passage, and she still wouldn't be astounded.

She replied, feeling rather flustered,"Oh...uh...nothing. Thanks."
What was she going to tell Keeper? That she felt creeped out by the weird guy in the black robes? The stranger hadn't said anything to her, but just the general vibe she got from him was not so good.

She was definitely from that clan... her markings... Realizing that he was being watched, he regained his composure and turned to face the young terran from earlier.

"Ahh, my inquisitive friend. What can I do for you?" His face showed no sign of the concern from only moments earlier. If someone had slipped through the Seal...

2007-07-03T12:12:23-04:00 2007-07-03T12:12:23-04:00 <![CDATA[Open RP • Forum Rules *Updated 11/26/09*]]>
  • Treat others with respect. These are RP Stories , not Games . There is no winner, it's about cooperation and collaborative writing - not winning a competition. You are trying to get along with the other posters to create a story together, not beat them out.
  • No 'one-liners' are allowed. We are trying to keep the Role Playing up to certain standards, no matter what the storyline.

    A 'one-liner' is a post (usually one line, but can be longer) that does nothing to advance the storyline and gives no one else something to work with.

    Johnny walked into the pub and eyes the patrons suspiciously. He finally strutted over to a table in an empty corner and hollared for a bar wench to get him a drink. when she brought his ale, he slapped her on the backside and took the drink.

    There's three lines (on this screen anyway) and we know that Johnny's got an ego and doesn't like other people. There's absolutely nothing for another writer to work with. Three lines and it's still a 'one-liner'
  • Do not use an RP thread/OOC thread to solicit players for other RP's, OR to advertise your RP. This includes placing "RPers wanted, Please Join", "Calling" certain people, "More People Needed" etc. in the title. These are soliciting type things, unnecessarily lengthen the title and are a disruption. These will be removed.
  • Do NOT bump your RP threads without a normal post! This is annoying and clutters up the story thread. If someone wants to reply to the thread, they will find it themselves. If you feel a need to know where your thread is at and who and when it is posted to, please subscribe to the thread. (This ability is at the very bottom of the page.) This function will alert you to each post made to your thread. Having it at the top of the Forum should not be important.
  • Multiple accounts are allowed for RP purposes. However, it is required that you use the Primary Account field in the user profile page. This can be done when you register your account, or later from your Profile.
  • Only post in ENGLISH. Brief bits are okay if it makes sense in context (spells, etc) but if it is important to the post and the Admins or Moderators can't read it, it will probably get zapped (and you Warned).

    The 'brief bits' also need to be 'romanized.' Yes, some of you can type and even understand Chinese or Sindarin characters... but not everyone can... and most don't even have the fonts installed to see it! (If you don't understand the last bit, it probably doesn't apply to you)
  • Further guidelines:
    1. Do try to use proper punctuation and capitalization. Use Word or any simple word processor to first type up your post then run your spell check program. This will give the RP a professional feel. - Firefox 2.0 has a spell checker built in. Works well (I use it!)
    2. Pay attention to what other posters are saying and doing.
    3. Keep up with the thread. It makes for a much more enjoyable time if everyone posts regularly. These are RP Stories, folks, not Games. There is no winner, it's about cooperation and collaborative writing - not a competition. You are trying to get along with the other posters to create a story together, not beat them out.
    4. If you are going to leave the thread, write yourself out. Don't make the other members carry your character. Use your best judgment when taking a break from your RP's. We all take a few days away some times but if you are gone for more than a couple of weeks, then you should consider writing your character out of the thread for politeness sake. You can always write yourself back in again later on.
    5. Try to avoid wacky posts. Nothing is worse than all of a sudden being thrown into battle with Morgoth and Balrogs in the 3rd Age of Middle Earth or being inside a fortune teller's hovel and a ship pulls up to drop someone into the story. It has happened before.
    6. Do not do anything that affects another's character without their permission. This is just common courtesy. NEVER kill another character unless you have permission to do so.
    7. Writing dialog or describing actions for another character isn't too bad. Just keep in mind that the person might not like this. So I suggest you ask permission before touching on other people's characters - use your judgment.
    8. Creating dialog is one thing, but moving someone else's characters into a new situation isn't really a good idea without consulting them. Some people take it very seriously, while others won't mind at all. Please try to contact the person first through PM or IM.
    9. Sometimes it is necessary to move a character along if they haven't posted in a while, for to a variety of reasons. (This is called 'carrying a character'.) Hey Real Life(TM) happens to us all! Just don't be too drastic in actions or dialog.
    10. It is generally a lot less confusing if your user name and character name are the same. While this is not required, it is strongly recommended.
    1. The Conclave of Wizards operates a three strike policy. Users will be warned a maximum of three times for any and all rule violations in a three month period. The third warning a temporary ban will be put in place of between 1 to 7 days.

      Guideline violations will generally not result in a warning, but you may receive a reprimand from a moderator in particularly severe cases. Repeat offenders may receive a warning, at the moderators' discretion.
    2. Arguing with moderators after having received a warning will lead to an immediate additional warning. Should this exceed three strikes a temporary ban will be put in place as above.
    3. Users who feel they have been unfairly warned are welcome to contact another Moderator or Administrator. If they feel you were treated badly they may remove a warning. Remember, be nice! (see #2 above and #5 below)
    4. Any attempt to circumvent a temporary ban will lead to that ban being made permanent. Circumvention includes re-registering under a non-banned username, changing IP addresses to evade an IP ban, registering a new email account of evade an email ban. Circumvention includes posting as an anonymous user.
    5. An exception to the three strike rule applies when users contact team members personally (via any method) with insulting, indecent or vulgar material. Such users may be subject to an immediate permanent ban.
    6. Permanent bans are a last resort and thought is given before implementing them. While The Conclave of Wizards may consider lifting permanent bans from time to time this is a rare occurrence.

    Note: The majority of these were 'borrowed' from The One Ring's RP boards and from phpBB's web site. I just polished them up a bit and added my own touches...

    Edit 11/26/09 by Drakkim:
    Minor stuff :-)

    Edit 9/14/07 by Drakkim:
    • Added Rule #6
    • Fixed the 'Three Strike policy' Third strike is a temp ban, not fourth.
    • added note on Firefox's Spell checker
    • used Firefox's spell checker
    • Did a few cleanups and rephrases.

    She scuttled off to a random shelf and began perusing, as though there was an important book that she was searching for. Her attempt was probably not very convincing, but she preferred to be away from that strange person. Perhaps she was better off trying to find Keeper.

    She quit her charade of trying to find a book, and focused on finding Keeper instead. She began to walk down one of the many aisles, leaving an unconscious Lexium behind, since he otherwise appeared to be fine.

    Raylani stared at the Keeper in shock at the casual nature with which he spoke. When he continued, her expression turned to a glare. "You know, it's not like I was discussing your close friends. There's little possibility you are even related..." Keeper's speech slowed a bit as he continued. You don't much look like one from the African plains, anyway. I'd say by your appearance that you were from the wooded hills.. East of the Tower?" At least I hope the Tower still stands... Much time has passed since then.

    Raylani's glare darkened to suspicion. Few in this region knew her kind existed, much less where their home lay. At least he was discreet enough that he hadn't revealed anything to anyone who didn't already know."Who arrre you, and how do you know my people?" she finally asked.

    "I am the Keeper of Knowledge, one of the guides and guardians of this library."

    Raylani's eyes shot wide. It was an incredible claim, even indirectly as he proposed it. "Belw-"

    "Hsst!" Keeper shushed her. "That name means little to most here, but holds power you'd best not tap. As I said, I am the Keeper of Knowledge. We'd both be better served if you left it at that."

    "Y-yes, sirrr," the ocelot was not accustomed to deferring to anyone, but if he was who he claimed, he deserved it.

    Keeper chuckled. "You needn't kneel or bow or curtsy. I am a person, same as any human, elf, ogre, or changeling here. I merely have a duty to serve the knowledge held in these shelves. And," he added as an afterthought, "to seek ways to expand that knowledge. For now, enjoy what hospitality we can offer." He gestured toward the pair who had just finished replacing the fallen books. "Any of the keepers can help you, should you have need."

    With that said, Keeper abruptly turned and left the aisle as if he'd just remembered some important errand.

    Keeper's eyes caught the lady and widened slightly. He paused and whispered a few words of a spell that confirmed his suspicion before blinking away his surprise and taking up the book she was still glaring at. "True Cuisine of the Orient," he read. "Truly, this is more irony and sick jokes than fact. Most people from the writer's home kept cats and such as pets. A few kept them as snacks, but they didn't often write down recipes."

    The piercing screech that followed a minute or two later did nothing to quell her fear. This time, Elaine did drop the book onto the unfortunate doomsayer.

    Eyes wide, she glanced over at the Keeper anxiously. There wasn't anything.... dangerous in here, was there...? She certainly hoped there wasn't, and was afraid of the answer she would receive if she asked this question aloud. Knowledge was supposedly power, and perhaps that power wasn't as positive as most people made it out to be.

    "What was that?!"

    If there had been a stuffed animal or something cute and cuddly to cling onto, she probably would've by now, however childish it may have seemed.
