As World War II rages on, a new evil has arrived in Egypt in the form of the German Nazi forces. The Nazis have recently learned about Imhotep and the curse that gave him his powers, and now they want that power for themselves. With an army of soldiers wielding the power of Imhotep, the Nazi forces would be unstoppable.
The Medjai, the sacred guardians of the immense supernatural powers within Egypt, are now hopelessly caught in the middle. Severely weakened after the Battle of Ahm Shere, and unaccustomed to taking sides in political conflicts, the Medjai remain equally wary of both sides of this war, seeking only to keep the magic they guard out of the hands of those who would abuse it. Nevertheless, the Nazis have made no attempt to respect the Medjai’s neutrality. The Medjai know the secrets of the Hom-Dai, and for that, they must yield to the Nazis’ will or face utter extinction.
Here begins the O’Connell family’s next great adventure. Never quite losing their thirst for adventure, the patriotic Evy O’Connell and her swashbuckling husband Rick enlisted as spies for Britain very early into the war. Now, as the only ones with any real experience in dealing with the Hom-Dai, Rick and Evy have been dispatched to Egypt once again to thwart the Nazis’ plans and finally put a permanent stop to Imhotep’s curse.
You and up to four other hapless souls will get to embark in the journey of a timeline to a desolate post-apocalyptic alien world in a quest to uncover the deepest secrets of an extinct ancient alien race and the hyper-advanced servitor race they spawned.
In this Story Arc, I will be playing solely the role of gamemaster (or dungeon master), writing out overall narration over the adventure, scene setting, and writing for NPCs (of which our setting will be the biggest NPC, an active force that will react to the characters actions). The conflict "level" and whether the resolution of such conflict is violent is entirely dependent upon the type of characters that join up. I am prepared to accommodate tremendous flexibility in the "spirit" of the Nexus. If all of the characters joining are superhero tier fighters, we will have plenty of combat encounters a'la tabletop RPG without the dice. A group full of normal human high school students would get more of a thriller with the scope adjusted to match. You bring who you want and I'll make it work. Mostly; don't over do it if everyone else is clearly going for something else.
The plot revolves around a mysterious rift discovered within the sub-cellar of the Leaky Servo, a popular AI ran bar where the Va'nyrians make their home base in the Nexus. Through the rift lies an image that is very familiar to Nilin, the Va'nyrian All-Mother. A landscape where neither she nor indeed any Va'nyrian can safely enter. And yet, it is one where treasures and dearly sought answers await. It is thus that Nilin has contacted her liason with the Wayfarer's Guild and posted a sizeable bounty seeking not just Wayfarer's Guild members but any visitor to Nexus City to apply at the Leaky Servo to journey into the rift on commission by the Va'nyrian Consensus.
It sounds pretty good, right? A world where you can make whatever kind of character you want, with no limits? To create whatever you want? Sounds pretty good, right?
I'm not joking. This isn't that false advertising some people put onto their sites "Be whoever you want, DO whatever you want", this is a world with as few rules as possible. I'm not kidding. So far we have, like, one, I think.
So, come on down with your craziest ideas, your most far-fetched of worlds. This world is your oyster. You can befriend it, ride in it, see the world, live in it, or suck the last ever-loving marrow from its bones. The choice is yours. Just be careful. Even you aren't exempt from the consequences of your own actions.
Nexus is an open-world, multiversal, sandbox RP set in a fractured universe. Essentially, the universe was shattered and fragmented. Nexus the city serves as a stabilizing force to slowly rebuild and reconnect the broken fragments of the worlds and realms. Within Nexus city is a place called Wayfarer's Point that sits as a hub between all of the connected fragments for players to traverse from world to world. This allows for players to have larger continuous roleplay if they want.
Alternatively there's also multitudes of smaller or unconnected fragments that allow people to split off to do smaller or private stuff.
Any and all genres are welcome! You can mix and match genres, or have worlds that predominately lean towards specific genres as well.
In a magical world, in its far future, Humans make war, Elves dabble and plot in mortal affairs, and kings make way for an almighty Bank to rule the way. Powerbolt is a high-fantasy roleplay in space awaiting you to be it's mighty hero, diabolical cult leader, ravaging warleader, or shrewd merchant, or anything else you can think of!
Powerbolt is a pseudo-nation building RP (I call it 'faction building') where you can play as the leader of anything from a whole nation to a single ship's crew in a Galaxy that waits as a canvas for your imagination. I want to build the world alongside you guys, so imaginative ideas new and old are always welcome here!
Cordova was like any other normal High School. The kids complained about being bored and the teachers complained about the misbehaving students. It had been this way for eons and all assumed it would remain this way for years to come. That all changed however one autumn day when it was least expected. Best friends Meridian and Mataiya were set to meet after one of their classes in order to walk to drama, but when Meridian didn't show, her bestie went searching for her in the restroom. The door opened with a squeaking noise and Mataiya walked in only to stop in horror. In the floor beside the first set of stalls was Meridian. Her body had been ripped to shreds, most of her guts and organs were lying on the ground beside a pool of blood. There was blood all over the walls along with huge scratch marks. Screaming, Mataiya ran to the office to tell them of her horrific discovery. That very minute, a loud screeching noise blasted across the PA system. Just as abruptly as it started, the noise stopped but the silence didn’t last long. Those that ran outside found it impossible to get beyond the school grounds and it was as if no one could even see or hear them on the outside. The students, teachers, administrators, and security officers were trapped inside the one place they felt was safe. The two main questions that formed in everyone single person’s mind was in regards to what was doing the killings and how they were going to escape.
Okay, the point of this RPG is simple. It takes place in our world [on Earth] in the normal time period. You’re either going to be a student, teacher, or other faculty type person, such as a security officer, or even a cook. The phone lines are down and there’s no contact with the outside world, not even e-mail, or cell phones. No one in the outside world can hear or see them, it's as if the school and the accompanying grounds were stuck in some warp zone.
Aelora is a land forgotten. Legend tells of a blight known only as the Void that spread through Aelora two millennia ago. As nation after nation fell the last of the Aeloran races joined together to seal the continent of Aelora away in a final effort to contain the blight from spreading to the rest of the world. A veil was erected and Aelora was lost to time and memory.
For two millennia the veil held and none could enter nor leave Aelora, and for two millennia the war with the Void raged on. Nations were shattered, and entire races driven into extinction. What survivors remained retreated into mountain strongholds until the tides were turned with the return of the Elysian Vanguard - a fabled order of heroes and legends.
With the blight driven back the races of Aelora have stepped forward to reclaim their ancestral homes. It will be an enduring struggle though as much of the land remains tainted by Void corruption and unforgiving wilderness.

A historical dark fantasy roleplay set in Eastern France, it follows a group of individuals who become tied together through the effects of a mysterious book deemed heretical by the church. Now they must stand against the Inquisition, an invading army, and monsters that threaten their way of life. As these threats enclose on them, they must learn to survive them, and bring peace back to their homeland.
Based in a custom Eastern French Duchy in 1191, players will be tangled up in a number of storylines that will change the shape of the French countryside, and potentially history.
A unique science fantasy set on a megastructure of cosmic proportions fleeing from immortal horrors. A setting predicated on a ubiquitous hard magic system centered around constructs of solidified mana, and featuring eight races, seven of which are unique and alien in their shape. The setting is intended more as a backdrop for different tones and themes of RP rather than as a unified story setting, so there are opportunities for most genres of RP, including epic fantasy, horror, action-adventure, mystery, and drama.
The world of the Ark: a boat-shaped construct so vast that it would take up a significant portion of any solar system is was in, dwarfing even the largest stars in it's scale.
From our wiki: "Convergence is set in a fandom multiverse where events have been set into motion to cause beings from disparate dimensions to, despite all odds, meet each other. With the multiverse becoming more widely known, dark forces seek to reach out and take whatever power they can muster from these chaotic opportunities, and it’s up to those who would stand against them to put a stop to these evil schemes. The background and lore of this series is constantly expanding, creating a rich and varied history with a growing cast of thousands."
The Convergence Series is a multifandom crossover epic roleplay that follows an overarcing story and lore, featuring dozens of popular franchises and characters. While we are fandom based, we absolutely welcome OCs as well, and anyone of all writing styles or experience; in fact, we go out of our way to make our roleplays as newcomer-friendly as possible!
Convergence offers many different roleplaying options. Our Main Events are big, multichapter roleplays that serve as another chapter in our lore. Side Stories are smaller roleplays with a slower pace that tend to go on for a longer period of time. We also have a few casual jump-in Sandbox roleplays which anyone can join at any time. And of course there are One-On-One roleplays if you'd prefer writing a story with one other person. No matter what kind of roleplay you enjoy, Convergence has it!
You can find us here over in the Epic Roleplay Forums. We have a lot of different roleplays going on, there's bound to be something for you! Hope to see you over there soon!
It's sea otter awareness month! I guess I should include some facts. They are endangered and internationally protected, a keystone species, the largest of the otter species at up to 5 feet long and 90 pounds (40 kg), live almost entirely in the water, have the thickest fur of any animal, can stay submerged around 5 minutes, and the oldest known otter died at 28 years old!
