10:53 am - Community rules [sticky post]
This is a community for advertising games that use Pen-and-Paper game systems (Dungeons & Dragons, Vampire, Champions, etc.), either face-to-face or online.


1. Please post ads only for games that use or are based on pen-and-paper game systems.

2. Do not advertise celebrity or free-form games based on novels, movies, videogames, TV shows, etc. in this community. If you want to advertise one of those, try communities like rpg_promo or rpg_connect. Posts advertising non-pen-and-paper-based games will be deleted (ads for games that use pen-and-paper systems based on media properties [such as Eden Studios' Buffy the Vampire Slayer game] are acceptable). This means no ads for Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Final Fantasy, etc. games - unless you're using a pen & paper-based system to play them. Any posts that violate this rule will be deleted.

3. Please make sure that all images are no larger than 400 by 400 pixels, or placed behind an LJ-cut if they exceed those dimensions.

4. Please limit advertisements for a particular game to one ad per week for the first month, and one ad per month after that. Any posts that violate this rule will be summarily deleted.

5. Don't post quizzes, memes or the like in this community; save those for your own journal.

6. This community is for game advertisements, not discussion of games or promotion of LJ communities (even roleplaying-related ones). If you want to talk about games, try roleplayers (for general discussion of RPGs), gmworkshop (for gamemasters), or any of the other RP discussion communities. If you want to promote an LJ community, try community_promo.

7. Be polite. Insults and gratuitous name-calling aren't appreciated here.

8. If you believe that a post is in violation of the community rules, e-mail the Community Maintainer at pnp.rpgs@gmail.com with a link to the post in question, and I will decide if the post violates the rules or not.

06:20 pm - In a Nutshell: an In Nomine dressing room (Dreamwidth (http://www.dreamwidth.org))
In a Nutshell: an In Nomine dressing room
and count myself a king of infinite space
What if there was more than one Symphony, or more than one world within the Symphony? In a Nutshell is a dressing room-style game for any and all In Nomine and In Nomine Satanis/Magna Veritas-related characters, based on that premise. We welcome canon, original, and AU characters, and players of all skill levels (from complete newcomers to In Nomine and/or journalsgames to veterans of both). While the game is largely freeform, we also welcome players running their own plots, one-shot events, and other structured campaign-like things, as well as making their own posts or simply playing in the existing ones. Dreamwidth invite codes are available on request, and the moderator is happy to answer questions and help people settle in.
were it not that I have strange dreams . . .

08:10 am - The World of Domi RP Website
  The World of Domi 

There are many tales to be weaved, legends told of creatures young and old. Many stories etched on paper with ink and pen. Told of a world so different then ours, of secret corridors, busy streets and dark dam forests, of truths masked by lies, and lies told as truths. Quite whispers echo from the land, calling out to the great and meek. Close your eyes and focus on the inner beat, the throbbing sense rushing beneath your feet.

But before those stories are told, there are more that need to come. Stories of past struggles and present secrets. Tales long forgotten, needing to be remembered. I whisper them into the lands and people that inhabit them. If you listen closely, the world speaks. This is the World of Domi, this is me..

Live the Wonder, Join the Adventure.
The World of Domi.

The World of Domi is a fantasy world of mysterious history, strange lands and adventure. After a great war with the Giant rulers of Domi, the once slave races built a land of peace & prosperity. Then chaos ensued as many of the nations warred with each others and themselves. Much of their greatness was lost. Now the lands of Domi are rebuilding. Though some wars are happen, they are fairly contained. Adventures make a living on Domi trying to uncover her secrets, or taking part in the wars.

The World of Domi is a fantasy setting of my own design and creation. The world is slowly recovering from the chaos of war and has only recently gained its freedom from the Giants that once ruled over the world. The World of Domi comes complete with Mysterious lands, strange happenings and secret organizations. Come, create a character.

06:26 pm - DaeLuin: Open your eyes and dream
Visit Daeluin
Temples and Shrines
Western Continent
Eastern Continent
Join today!

Daeluin is a medieval fantasy RPG with a forum-based play by post format. Our boards currently boast over 6,700 registered users, more than 75 different RP areas, shops with hundreds of items and spells, a turn-based battle arena, guilds, and frequent, ever-evolving site-wide plots. Play style is completely free form; we do not have a set story line, canon characters, or limits on character design.

Daeluin is a realm of spell cast and swordplay where Gods and Goddesses walk beside mortals. On the eastern continent, magic reigns supreme and airships, floating cities, and ancient Temples are the norm. In the west, the population is amazingly diverse, but age-old wars continue to ravage the land. Yet now, a mysterious plague sweeps across the land, sapping all the magic from large areas of land. In these Dead Zones, all spells cease to function and life itself begins to wither. The Dead Zones are rapidly expanding, and pose a threat to the entire realm.

Come join us and experience the active roleplaying, dynamic plots, almost total creative freedom, and great sense of community on Daeluin. Daeluin has been up and running since 2002 and a short stop by will show you why!

07:26 pm - Homebrew Fantasy RPG via IRC on Wednesdays 6-10pm CDT (UTC -6)
We are looking for new players for a complex, character-driven series of one-shots via IRC at 6-10 PM CDT (UTC -6) on Wednesdays, starting May 12, 2010. Sign-up is separate for each game. We will help you get started if you are not familiar with IRC. While the games are usually free of adult content, we won’t shy away from it if it comes up naturally, so no minors, please. Please note, though we have moved to gaming online now, this started as pen and paper games in person. It's the same system, we merely use a dicebot instead of physical d10s. If this doesn't qualify for this community, delete this with my apologies, but it really is classic pen and paper in a digital setting.

The Book of Names setting mostly takes place on the world of Shem, an expansive and highly inclusive fantasy world where the world is physically transformed to reflect the dominant idea of the current Age and the Divine skirmish through mortal agents. The Ages of Water, Earth, Fire, Air, Weather, Flora, and Fauna may all be represented in the one-shot games. The games each revolve around different Gifts, which are immensely powerful, valuable, and dangerous artifacts made by the Divine and given to mortals.

We use a simple homebrew system which is easy to learn. We're looking for players who are open-minded, into experimenting with gameplay and characters, and from any level of experience. Our games tend to vary in focus from political thrillers to mysteries to standard quests and so on; however, they all include character-character interactions, dramatic problem solving and usually a glimpse of the grand conspiratorial mystery plots that tie the setting as a whole together.

If you enjoy these one shots, we are also looking for new players for our Saturday night epic Campaigns (these last years and take up your Saturday nights). If you’re interested in those, please, sign up for a one-shot so we can see how we’ll mesh. If you fit in and are willing to commit to a more epic game, we’d love to have new blood.

For each game, I will make a post detailing the specifics on our group blog. If you want to be a part of this, comment on the linked post (or here) or email me. Please let us know your experience level as a player of RPGs, whether you are a seasoned veteran or an innocent first-timer, and let us know in at least a few sentences what kind of character you want to play; some ideas will be posted along with the specifics of each game to get you started.
