04/05/2018
  • In the OOC Area under "Trading Cards" can be found two banners, one going to RP Topsites the other going to Shadow Play Topsites.

SP Banner - Click, and you're done!
  • Check out the Parlour for ways to kick back, get creative, and have a good time! Studdy's Classic Lines is still playable until 4/15 for the March Madness Edition Need a source for an unusual word? Check out the revived Word of the Day thread!
04/06/2018
  • Spring Cleaning is underway! As we wake up and get the stories moving again, this is the time we update everything from threads, apps, subforums, etc. Let staff know if you plan to archive a character, need a subforum for a home or business, need help closing a thread, or jump starting any ideas! As a reference, items in Archive can be pulled out using the Archive request which can be found here. Thus far:
  • Welcome Himms' newest character Rani Sharma! Give her some love, and get her in the mix of all the action!
04/07/2018
  • Give three cheers for our new Story Moderator, Violet! We're excited to have her on the staff. She's passionate about our setting and our stories.
  • A new channel was added to our server in the OOC section called Voting. This is where you will find links to daily polls for top sites, or alerts to competitions we've been entered into across the community where members can vote! It will also serve to alert you to things in house, such as polls for game nights, movie nights, events, and more!
  • Tabs has created for us a glorious area known as Expansion! You've heard of expansion packs for Magic: The Gathering and other games you've played, yes? Here, you will find that you not only can explore your characters and share more details, family trees, mood boards, etc in Extended Biography, but can also:
    • Can keep track of your characters' threads, where you can use doHTML templates as an option, or bbcode if you prefer. Please consult the doHTML Guidelines that have been added for further details on how to use this feature and for what is/isn't allowed in the area.
    • Have fun exploring characters and concepts beyond the world of 18th century India in the AU forum.
  • The first part of updating for the Subplot Directory is complete. Changes to note include:
    • Better clarity of language throughout the Directory and Subplot list for explanations, ease of use, and eliminating any confusion when trying to understand how a plot works or who is involved.
    • Updating to both the submission code and the listed subplots. "Paths to Linking" was replaced with "Link Plans" so you know if the subplots will cross/or have cross potential into other stories. "Whose Involved" was changed to "Whose Kicking it Off" so you can see what person(s) or group is responsible for starting/running the story and who to contact for information on getting involved.
  • Subplot and Event Brainstorm has been updated. Old documents for reference have been removed. The Pre-Planning Plot Form code has been updated to include a question concerning what you hope to achieve with your ideas when you submit them for help, all to better help you get your ideas off the ground.

  • You will notice "The Key" section is empty beneath each subplot header. As stories open up for each subplot to continue, the cliff notes of this area will feature the most current summaries of threads. Be on the look out for a full story write up known as The Ultimate Cliff Notes Collection, a g-doc that will hold all the story information of the past and things yet to come!
