Welcome to Imythess, the border between dreams and reality. We hope you enjoy your visit.

Imythess is a creative writing board where you narrate the story of a character in the medieval land of Imythess, on the planet Chaon. Each topic is an opportunity for your character to interact with the world and its peoples by cooperatively writing pieces of a story with other members, one post at a time. We call this role-playing, because you assume the identity of your character as if it were your own.

In order to play, you must register an account for each character you would like to write about, and begin their tale by filling out their basic profile information: Race (human, elf, demon, etc.), class (warrior, mage, etc.), physical appearance, and any other personal details you would like to describe. You are also encouraged to come up with some background history information for what your character's life has been like up to the point at which their story in Imythess begins.

There is no approval process or application required to join, so long as you follow the rules then you are free to write whatever character details you choose. Registration is simple, fast, and completely free.

Merry Midwinter!

Thank you for being a member of Imythess. After spending some much-deserved quality time with your family and friends, join us for a celebration of the writing hobby here on the site! Festivities will last until the end of February 2018.

After all, writing is the reason why many of us came here in the first place! Whether you use writing as a means to tell crazy stories, or you're using the site to hone your technical skills, this hobby is what brings us together. Writing is how we collectively make this fictional world move and breathe!

For Midwinter this year, check out the load of writing games and practice exercises that you can do for rewards. Some of these revolve around basic prose, like a word prompt game, while others dig deep into the core of your character. Each time you write and post something IC on the site, don't forget to redeem that post toward unlocking a massive community gift!

The below list is a comprehensive guide to Midwinter festivities.




Guide to Midwinter 2017-18

All of these events last until the end of February 2018 unless otherwise stated. Pace yourself so you don't get overwhelmed!



Short-Term Midwinter Festivities


Writing Games and Exercises

  • The Midwinter Community Gift: Make IC posts on Imythess and redeem them here in order to help the community unlock a huge gift! Bonus points if your posts help you practice your writing goals.

  • Family Portrait: Write as many short descriptions of your character's relevant family members as you can.

  • Inner Landscape: Write a short story that involves your character answering a large number of prying personal questions, interview-style.

  • Confession: Write a micro-story (500 words or less) about your character confessing something they've kept to themselves. Needs to have a beginning, middle and end despite the small size.

  • Word Prompt Chain Story: Players make short posts that add to a single ongoing story, then decide which two words the next post needs to incorporate. Last person to post within the timeframe wins a bonus.

  • Give Poetry a Shot: Write poetry related to your character or Imythess. You get a bonus if you've never written poetry before, rarely do it, or haven't written a poem in a really long time. If the thought of writing a poem freaks you out, read the link for some information, tips, and inspiration to help you get out of your comfort zone.

  • A Year in Roleplay Visualized: Draw or doodle a scene, character, or other visual element from a roleplay that you enjoyed participating in this year.

Does the Inner Landscape have to be a short story, or can it be an RP?

New Years new features will be a little later than scheduled. We're ending up doing a bit more than expected and putting the finishing touches on all of it. Sorry for the inconvenience!
