    Terminus Est OOC - Mists of Izumo

    Please read:
    A personal appeal from
    Terminus Est founder Kodos

    SPOILER! :
    From Terminus Est founder Kodos
    Wizards of the Coast may have close to a milion computers. Paizo has something like 13,000 staff. We have 2 computers and 2 staff.
    Terminus Est is the #1 roleplay on the forum and serves scores of people every month - with hundreds of page views.
    Commerce is fine. Advertising is not evil. But it doesn't belong here. Not in Terminus est.
    When I founded Terminus Est, I could have made it into a for-profit company with advertising banners, but I decided to do something different. We've worked hard over the years to keep it lean and tight. We fulfill our mission, and leave waste to others.
    If everyone reading this posted once a day, we would only have to nag you to post for one day a year. But not everyone can or will post. And that's fine. Each year just enough people decide to post.
    This year please consider making a post, whatever you can to protect and sustain Terminus Est.
    Thanks,
    Kodos
    Terminus Est Founder

    OP UNDER HEAVY CONSTRUCTION. PARDON THE DUST. DEAL WITH IT. I HATE YOU. YOU’RE NOT MY DAD.

    INTRODUCTION
    What is this?
    Terminus Est is the (ostensibly tentative) name for five or so Dungeons and Dragons campaigns all being run by myself. The campaigns take all take place in the same universe (well, multiverse, really) and feature more or less the same recurring characters and whatnot. While each campaign is telling a more or less self-contained story there is an overall meta-plot to the entire meta-campaign and as the campaigns go on there will be increasing overlap between both player character and non-player character elements.
    All of the campaigns are ostensibly taking place at the same time unless otherwise noted, but really it doesn’t work out quite right. Just assume one or more of the player characters are Time Lords and things make a lot more sense.
    Giant fuck-off Dragons, nymphomaniacs, bipolar bisexual Succubi, autistic wizards, crazy spider-ladies, and asshole wizards! Terminus Est has it all!
    Dungeons and Dragons?
    Yes. We play using a heavily modified version of Dungeons and Dragons Revised Third Edition (AKA D&D 3.5). The modifications have been put into place by myself for a number of reasons, but primarily to make roleplay (traditional roleplaying) and rollplay (dice rolling, number crunching, and gamey things) more interesting, to make classes more customizable and balanced, and also to help make the game run smoother in this online format.
    Ultimately, like any good DM, I view the rules as suggestions to be taken lightly.
    I’m interested, but isn’t there a lot of story and rollplay to learn?
    Yes and no. There’s a lot going on and that’s happened so far, but between myself and the other players you can quickly be brought up to speed on the plot so far. As far as rollplay goes, that is even easier! D&D is very easy to learn and for the most part all the apparent complexity is simply the result of very poorly worded rulebooks. Most of the rules in D&D are very intuitive and simplistic. We can have you up and running in no time.
    Also there are a few upcoming campaigns that take place in other material planes besides Asul, the setting of most of the campaigns, so they have much less, if any, plot baggage. If you are interested get in touch – don’t be shy!
    Sounds awesome, how do I join?
    While there are often openings in one or more of the parties for new players, this is not always the case. If you are interested in playing please contact me on AIM (Kodos343) and/or in this thread and we can try and figure shit out. You’ll have to contact me on AIM at some point or another – and I usually am online – so your best bet is trying there first.
    Awesome art!
    Yes, yes it is. Many of the players are extremely talented artists and have been kind enough to share some of their talents with us by producing art for the campaigns. Praise them and their labors.
    Just like good roleplaying I believe this is something that shows considerable dedication and takes time and effort, so I believe it is something that should be rewarded. I award players experience points and/or items in-game for producing artwork, with the caveat that the first picture of their own character(s) does not count. If you are able to draw it is pretty much expected – but not required – as good manners that you draw him/her/it.
    Likewise if any of the players commission art, I consider it the same as if they had drawn it themselves, in terms of rewards – it still shows effort and dedication. Generally my ruling is more or less that 25$USD is equivalent to about half a level’s worth of experience. My feelings are that the time it takes a person to earn that much money is roughly equivalent to the time it takes the average artist player (I’m thinking Zizi or Reg) to churn out a picture of equivalent expees quality.

    I'm hoping if we all bitch loudly and often enough Rio will either change this forum to something less suck or let us go back to the old one.

    This forum is a bitchy effeminate sunnuvagun with no good parts aside from its scrotum, and even that part is worthless unless minced into fine pate and served with a fine wine. The old forum was an upgraded version of the old battle-scarred warrior of a forum and would bite your nuts off with its teeth and still have room for a couple of 20oz southern-fried steaks, which it would cook on its bare, tattooed muscles and then rip apart with its teeth.

    TL;DR: The new forum is a hive of scum and villainy.
