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.

Everyone loves events! To take some of the heat off our hardworking Storytellers while they are busy slinging Plot, let's have some hot PvP action (adjudicated by me, Snellopy). That's right, it's tournament season! But before you look at your roster of alts with a critical eye, read on as you'll soon see that we're trying something different, perfect for both new players and those returning after a long hiatus:

Imythess is inundated with the famous and important, but this time we're ignoring the big leagues. To participate in the Tabula Rasa Tournament, players roll a new alt, and will have access to starting gear and a free[1] inventory of 700g, selected from any shop[2]. No fusions allowed except for simple substitutions along the lines of sword to axe and such. Enchantments are allowed, but must be declared at the time of purchase.

You can optionally earn an extra 50g to use on your alt, by completing this GRP Short Story with your contestant to introduce the character and give them some backstory so you feel attached to them, if you wish. The GRP ticket will go to your main account.[3]

The brackets will be set up by Random Number Generator, and like with storyteller events, you fine folks will have a 3 day window to get at least one post in. If both you and your opponent have posted, feel free to have at it again. If your opponent does not post within 3 days, you may follow up with your next post, including the effects suffered by your previous round. All combatants need to make at least 4 posts within a 2 week period. Rounds will last for up to two weeks.

Standard entertainment judging rules will apply. The focus is on entertaining fights, adherence to item use rules, and basic roleplay etiquette. Scores (1 point for participation, 2 points for the winner) will not be announced during traditional round breakdowns, if you request feedback as it progresses, I will only list solid sections in your writing of the field of battle and anything that detracted majorly. Rounds will be entirely random, and not based off of current standings.

At the completion of the tournament, the inventories of all participants will be returned to the starter items only. You do get to keep the gold from posting, so like voting, post early and often.

If you intend to join, please reply to this thread with your newly minted alt, making sure you have already added them to your alt registry (I'd also appreciate if you gave them an avatar). Your single shop thread listing all your combatant's purchases should be placed no later than 11PM, 30th April MDT Timezone (so -6, Imy Admin Timezone), and the competition will begin on Wednesday May 2nd.





[1] The gold doesn't come from your accounts, but you won't get to keep any unspent gold, nor the items at the end of the tournament.
[2] Excluding Leadership, Ships, CIT, Trusted Agent and GRP Prize pools. No transferring itemst to them, no UITs
[3] If you choose this, then the gold and items purchased with it will also evaporate at the end of the tournament, so choose wisely! The GRP ticket will go to your main, and cannot be used by your tournament entrant.

Can we use these new characters in other topics as well? Before/concurrently with the tournament?

I think Snell wants people to only use gold they got in the tournament itself.

Okay, yeah, that's an inventory restriction for the tournament, but that doesn't answer the question.

Yeah mate, I am fine with you roleplaying them, its the empty inventory that is the gimmick for this tournament, mate.
