Terminus Est OOC

INTRODUCTION
What is this?
Terminus Est is the name for several 'Dungeons and Dragons' (there are so many homebrew changes and house rules that I feel the quotations are justified) campaigns all being run by myself. The campaigns take all take place in the same universe (well, multiverse, really) and feature more or less the same recurring characters and whatnot. While each campaign is telling a more or less self-contained story there is an overall meta-plot to the entire meta-campaign and as the campaigns go on there will be increasing overlap between both player character and non-player character elements.
All of the campaigns are ostensibly taking place at the same time unless otherwise noted, but really it doesnít work out quite right. Just assume one or more of the player characters are Time Lords and things make a lot more sense.
Giant fuck-off Dragons, nymphomaniac kitsune, Succubi, nerdy wizards, crazy spider-ladies, and asshole wizards! Terminus Est has it all!

Dungeons and Dragons?
Yes. We play using a heavily modified version of Dungeons and Dragons Revised Third Edition (AKA D&D 3.5). The modifications have been put into place by myself for a number of reasons, but primarily to make roleplay (traditional roleplaying) and rollplay (dice rolling, number crunching, and gamey things) more interesting, to make classes more customizable and balanced, and also to help make the game run smoother in this online format.
Ultimately, like any good DM, I view the rules as suggestions to be taken lightly.
Iím interested, but isnít there a lot of story and rollplay to learn?
Yes and no. Thereís a lot going on and thatís happened so far, but between myself and the other players you can quickly be brought up to speed on the plot so far. As far as rollplay goes, that is even easier! D&D is very easy to learn and for the most part all the apparent complexity is simply the result of very poorly worded rulebooks. Most of the rules in D&D are very intuitive and simplistic. We can have you up and running in no time.
Also there are a few upcoming campaigns that take place in other material planes besides Asul, the setting of most of the campaigns, so they have much less, if any, plot baggage. If you are interested get in touch Ė donít be shy!
Sounds awesome, how do I join?
While there are often openings in one or more of the parties for new players, this is not always the case. If you are interested in playing please contact me on AIM (Kodos343) and/or on Skype (Robochrist9000) and/or in this thread and we can try and figure shit out.

Awesome art!
Yes, yes it is. Many of the players are extremely talented artists and have been kind enough to share some of their talents with us by producing art for the campaigns. Praise them and their labors.
Just like good roleplaying I believe this is something that shows considerable dedication and takes time and effort, so I believe it is something that should be rewarded. I award players experience points and/or items in-game for producing artwork, with the caveat that the first picture of their own character(s) does not count. If you are able to draw it is pretty much expected Ė but not required Ė as good manners that you draw him/her/it.
Likewise if any of the players commission art, I consider it the same as if they had drawn it themselves, in terms of rewards Ė it still shows effort and dedication.

So, yeah, obviusly, T'est is going to be going down here for the foreseeable future, but hopefully not permanently. Hopefully Rio will notice her forums are broken sooner than later and fix them.
Anyway, I'll get around to restarting all the threads over the next day or two. I, sadly, was not able to access them via the Wayback Machine, but I do recall generally where all the threads were and can just toss an OOC recap in the OP. No big deal, thankfully.

Was all the old art and everything on MT lost with this *temporary* downtime over there (at least, one can hope it's temporary...)

I have almost all of that stuff saved, probably all of it. I don't think anything was lost. And, thankfully, I have the archives of the prior two forms of the threads on the prior two MT incarnations and for once the slow pace of these things serves us as there wasn't too much lost o the old forums, so yeah.

Kodo has been sending me such things on AIM; They are all pretty cool, but that DBZ-Karin is definitely my fave. ( ͡⚆ ͜ʖ ͡⚆)

You've definitely been improving a lot recently, man. Feel free to drop me a line if you need help with actual proportions and stuff.
