*welcomes you to the conference and helps you take a seat* *lights turn off* *runs onto stage* Welcome everyone to this very important meeting with all the details for The Legend of Tanith! We’ve got a packed post full of information. *hands everyone note books* Let’s jump right in!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a second! I’d like to thank everyone who has signed up so far! You guys really surprised me! I had a lot more sign up than I thought would, which makes our adventure even more fun! I can not wait to take this journey with you guys! *hugs*
|The Legend of Tanith page|
I’m so excited to announce that I’ve created a new page titled The Legend of Tanith! (You can check it out here!) This page displays all the posts in this series, the members on our team, and a place where you can contact Rae. I’ll also be putting challenges and interactive games on the page so make sure you check back on it throughout the series! P.S The Legend of Tanith main theme song is on the page too! 😉
|How and where will we play?|
Here’s a question I’ve been asked a lot, how will this roleplay series work? Well, it is your lucky day, because I’m here to tell you! I’ll be posting a post every two days (unless otherwise said) and you will get to respond to them in the comments. Then, depending on how you guys chose the story to go, I’ll post another post and so forth. Think of it like a choose your own adventure book that mixed with a roleplay game. Since we will be playing the game in the comments, I highly recommend following the comments conversation so you know what is happening.
There will be some posts from Rae’s point of view, other character’s points of view, and some posts from an above/narrator/3rd person view etc.
|Am I on my own?|
No, you will be roleplaying in a team. Everyone who signed up is part of one team and we will all be trying to save Tanith together. Don’t worry, more will make sense as we further progress in the series. (More mysteries will be revealed. *evil laugh*)
I know that if I was in your position, I would want someone to tell me which posts were coming out so I knew what was coming next. After this post, we will have a “meet your team” post where you will be able to see everyone who is playing in our game, meet their characters, and see what they look like! That post will also include character role rules and limitations. After that, the series will have officially begun and we will go into roleplay mode. The finale post will come out July 24th.
I recommend two-no wait three things. 😉
First, I would love it if you guys would read the posts on my blog instead of in the reader. It will get you more in the fantasy mood, you’ll see more of the widgets and stuff, and you will be able see the decorations.
Second, I highly recommend following the comments conversation so you will be up to date on what is going on. If you don’t know how to follow the conversation, let me know!
Third, once we go into roleplay mode, I will be changing my profile to my name with my character’s name to the side. Like this: Alexa (Rae). I would recommend you add your character’s name to the side of your name, but I totally understand if you don’t want to since I know most of you run your own blogs too. (This is completely optional!)
So, when I say roleplay mode, what does that mean? Well it means that you will be playing as your character and you won’t come out of your character until roleplay mode is done. You will respond to posts in your character, you will contact Rae as your character, and you will do hunts and searches as your character. I think you get the memo.
|What is Tanith?|
Tanith, a beautiful, but broken and greedy land, is the fictional place we will be roleplaying in. We won’t be going out of Tanith. Legend has it there’s a lost scroll willing to grant a wish to whoever finds it. Because of this legend, people have gone insane trying to find the scroll. Is there still hope to save this torn land?
|Three different types of posts|
This is very important!! There will be three different types of posts throughout this series. You will know which post is which by looking at the icon in the corner of each featured image header.
This type of post is where you guys will all discuss as a team what you want to do next and have someone give me a final answer. There will be no “live action” going on in these posts. Example:
This will be the type of post where you all jump immediately into action. This will be more of the classic type of roleplaying post. We do have to make sure these types of posts don’t go on forever though. We will need to find a stopping point so I can post the next post in the series etc. Example:
This will be the type of post where you will have hunt around my blog (or maybe other blogs, I haven’t decided) for a clue to continue the series. Once you find the clue or code, you will return back to the post and write the answer in the comments.
Sign-ups are due July 10th at midnight MDT! If you would like to join the series, click here to read the sign-ups post! Any forms submitted after the due date will not be counted.
I also need some character catch lines. When I introduce your character in my upcoming post, I’m going to put their catch line in their profile. Tell me in the comments below what your character catch line/funny saying/quote is and I’ll add it. (This is optional. You don’t have to give me one if you don’t like.)
Here’s Rae’s catch line: “I’ve heard legends all my life but now it’s time to become one.”
Submit yours down below for me!
And that’s it! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out! We are one post closer to officially starting! *squeals*
