Too New For Skool

Tips: 50.00 INK Postby Venuskyy on Mon Jun 15, 2020 3:52 pm

Well, I have no clue what I'm doing at any point in time.

So I suppose an introduction is in order. I'm all for internet safety and anonymity so the only info I'm willing to give out is that I'm Venuskyy. My username is derived from Venus (The Roman Goddess, not the planet,) and Skyy Vodka, both of which are of interest to me personally. I'm a bartender that dabbles in writing in their free time.

This is my first time in an online forum roleplaying type thing? I usually do in person things but with the whole Covid thing happening I've got limited options and too shitty of an internet connection to try zoom calling or whatever it is the kids are doing these days to keep their social circles from dissolving into nothing.

Anyways, it isn't my first time dabbling in collaborative writing so at least I've got that goin for me.

I'll probably poke around the site for a bit first before I determine whether I've got the chops to exist here.

Thank you for reading my admittedly poor attempt at introducing myself.

I look forward to checking this place out.


Sidenote: I have a never ending hard-on for commas and improper punctuation. I know, its a problem.

Hello, welcome!

Tabletop rpg has a special place in my heart, too, but forum stuff is particularly fun.

There's a place for everyone here, so I'm sure you'll fit in just fine. Hope you find a space here where you belong! <3

Welcome. I also have a really unhealthy relationship with commas. Anyway, I have a copy-pasta for you, but it should get you around the site.

Anyway, here is my generic copy-paste information plug!

First and foremost, RPG has a chat app that just launched. You can actually download it to your mobile device, so that's pretty cool! Pop in and say hello.

We have a few different ways to roleplay here! We have our persistent RP world The Multiverse. It has an expansive list of worlds to adventure in, and you can take any of your characters anywhere and delve into whatever plots are ongoing. This place has web of many Universes so that you don't feel you only have to go to one place or end your character's story.

Then we have our Universes, and these are our niche and individual Universes. What makes them different from the Multiverse is that they typically have a smaller cast of characters, require GM approval, and a storyline that is much smaller. You can find the newest ones at the top! Some are private or 1x1, so don't apply to those. However, there are plenty of open ones, and if you are not sure if someone is accepting - just send the GM a PM.

If you don't know where to start and you just kind of want to play around until you figure something out, you can find a list of Starter Locations here. Also, Ambassadors on the site are dedicated to helping new members navigate the Multiverse, among other things.

I also encourage you to stretch out your creative fingers and participate in Freaky Freewrite Friday, of which update every Friday, and then Weekly Sunday Prompts. I update both of these weekly, and one is a brain dump and another is character exploration.

@Nonconformingrole

Hello and thank you!

I've been poking around and it certainly does look fun and I think I'll get settled in fairly easy enough.

@Mombie

Commas are my one true love and weakness. It truly brought a tear to my highschool English teachers eye everytime she had to read one of my essays haha.

Thank you for the copy pasta, I've gone ahead and checked most the links out and downloaded the chat onto my phone. I've been poking around the multiverse a bit but haven't had the time yet to fully dunk my head underwater there but I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

The multiverse certainly isn't for everyone, so don't feel bad if it's too overwhelming or you can't get into it. (Not that I'm trying to discourage you! In fact, if it's your thing, by all means, get in there!)

I wish you nothing but the best of times here! <3

The multiverse is in spirit supposed to be for everyone, for roleplayers of all skill levels, while it can be large scale, and appear quite intimidating, the limitless aspects of the various settings are more than accommodating.

Make a character and dive right in! :)
