(This is a starbound based thread) Hello and welcome to an environment where your ideas of science fiction will flourish and our dreams may be combined to create a world of advanced role-play which may become a staple to the finished Starbound community! The idea here is to create a group interested in roleplaying with each other in the promised 'Dedicated Servers' that are in the expected updates for 1.0. I am Phaetum, an experienced roleplayer who has run guilds over several game platforms and who is passionate about creating meaningful interpersonal experiences between all kinds of characters. I seek to craft truly inspiring stories that forgo all basic dramas, cliches, and focus on creating an experience that is 100% STARBOUND. We don't need vampires, schoolgirls, etc. when we have the rich possibilities of the cultures already provided! I want to find others who are as interested in creating a rich environment full of character-driven plot fueled by creative collaboration and scheming from our best minds... rest assured that when we have enough people to create this experience, and when I have enough experience through playing the game, I will put my best effort into creating a literate and truly creative experience in a hand crafted universe, so long as my team is as willing to give back to each other in the same way. And keep in mind that the game is not yet completed, and when it is our experiences will be altered and enhanced so much! Any bond we form now will only be strengthened by this solidarity. There's no 'requirements' merely expectations, ideals that I believe will make this community great! . Roleplaying Experience- Basic knowledge of roleplay is the only requirement. I ask for nothing beyond your creativity and your ideas for the existing world. How can all these already fascinating races be expounded upon? The creators have given us great tools, so how can we as a community create our own lore based on them? No idea is beyond consideration! Friendly Attitude: Drama is great in the story, but if you can't separate character drama from real drama, or feel like your characters are you to a degree that you take insult at another characters actions, then maybe this isn't the place for you! There will be criminals, scumbags, mouthy ladies with quick trigger fingers, and frankly if you can't handle the roughness of space, it would be best you stay out of the fray! And on top of that, don't start nothin' outside of the field of creativity! If you have an issue, come to me as the admin, or to anyone who seems friendly enough to diffuse situations, and see if you can calm things, because the last thing we want is an interpersonal explosion! True Collaboration: If you are as passionate as I am and you want to attempt to create our own cultural experience, just like our own dimension of Starbound that each character inhabits, your voice will be heard and be just as strong as my own. If you want to be a fellow admin in this idea please feel free to send me a private message telling me about your gaming experience so far in Starbound and what you'd like to see roleplay wise, and what you think you can contribute. Don't be shy, it's not hard or difficult to say something, and if you are keeping to lore and seem to have prior roleplaying experience, you can easily become a fellow admin in this experience. Does that sound simple enough? I hope so because what I'm doing with this thread is generating interest in what would basically be an advanced server focused on literate and serious roleplaying through developed plotlines crafted by admins who love it all as much as those experiencing their creation. Roleplay is something which can bring out our inner child, play to our desire for interaction in worlds beyond our imagining, and give us powers we only dream of. Become a part of this experience with me. APPLICATIONS: There are no applications at present though when I've got enough feedback I will happily create an application for all those interested in the thread. In the meantime simply post about your interest and add 'I want to know more" which is code-name for, send me a message when there's apps! I hope to see all of you wonderful roleplayers in the future. Have a wonderful experience in Starbound until then! Play on!
