    Hello all! And thanks for taking the time to read this thread about how our RPG's will work.

    Many many websites do Middle Earth RPG's and Final Fantasy RPG's and whatever else you can think of. However not many websites(perhaps none at all) create a world in which all RPG's take place. This is something we are going to do.

    Every RPG will take place in a world called Elysium. However we are not going to tell you what races are in the world or what the landscapes are like. Think of Elysium as Earth. It has races of many kinds and landscapes of many kinds. It will be the duty of each individual RPG to base their RPG in this world and create it how they like. You will also be able to incorporate Kingdoms. Kingdoms will act much like Guilds except your kingdom is just that. It is a Kingdom. You have land for race whether you are humans, orcs, wizards, elves, etc you will have a kingdom for your race as long as there are enough people of the same race.

    So to clear things up there is no Final Fantasy RPG here. There is no Middle Earth RPG here. Everything takes place in Elysium and it is up to you to create this world.

    So that should end all the FF RPG talks and ME RPG Talks.

    Enjoy and get ready to be part of one of the most immersive RPG's around.

    Hmm, seems pretty interesting. What role will the oceans and seas have to do with Elysium?

    I really like that idea. I think it's better that we allow many races, and not hold any back from RPG's.

    Lol, just enter the OOC thread in said RPG and ask the person who started the RPG if you can join.

    I'm warning you, though, that most of the RPGs in TFF are dead/dying.

    As of yet, I'm pretty sure we don't have a Star Wars RPG, as most RPGs are our own creations set in our own worlds. :) But if you're interested in starting a SW RPG, you should create a thread in this section asking who's willing to support you. If you have enough support and a viable plot, you should probably be able to start one. (Although the official person who answers the questions is Nienor. :p)

    I have a question...can we create our own race? Or are we limited to the traditional Human, Elf, Orc, etc. sort of thing?

    So how would I go about starting an RP here? Am I allowed to despite I have 3 posts? I have an idea, I'll put it up to get support if I'm allowed tomorow. Just tell me where. And tell me where to put one that isn't connected to Elysium, I'm deciding whether to connect it or not.

    rpg's that aren't related to Elysium are kingdoms. And suggestions go in the suggestions section. also, I don't think post count determines if you can or can't make suggestions, it's just how many people support your idea

    Why on earth would you stop RPG's bassed on books (the FF thing I can cause they normaly suck).
    I have a RPG bassed on the LOTR books but it is set in the 5th age on IF.
    But then again it's your call I just think that it's depriving this site of some quality RPG's

    Boom left the site a long while ago. Come to think of it, I've never seen him...

    Anyway, we do have several book-based RPGs. We have a WoT one, a LotR, and even an ASoIaF one, though the last never caught on.
