A Privately Owned, Privately Funded, Roleplay SIM
A roleplaying Revolution: Playing, is believing!
elcome to the home of serious roleplay!
ur Hyborean Adventure is now over - our special thanks to the players who stuck it out for the year, and overcame all the challenges and quests that were presented. You are the ones who endured, who understood roleplaying, and you survived where all the rest couldn't handle it!
he next adventure takes place in Mythia, an ancient mythical Greek world, you can visit us at : www.mythian.com
now, O prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and in the years of the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars - Nemedia, Ophir, Brythunia, Hyperborea, Zamora with its dark-haired women and towers of spider-haunted mystery, Zingara with its chivalry, Koth that bordered on the pastoral lands of Shem, Stygia with its shadow-guarded tombs, Hyrkania whose riders wore steel and silk and gold. But the proudest kingdom was Aquilonia, reigning supreme in the dreaming west. Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet"
-- The Nemedian Chronicles
Noble Family, A Dark Secret:
The Gehrings have arrived from distant Aquilonia, driven by their aging patriarch Lazrith. But what is it that he is truly after? The Vilayet sea is home to many small islands, some of which act as havens for small bands of buccaneers that defy the might of the Hyrkanian navy. Before the rise of that mighty nation some of those very islands were home to far darker inhabitants than mere pirates. These were alien to the world, having been spawned in the Outer Darkness and worshipped by the primitive folk that once inhabited the Vilayet's shores. Not all of these entites have gone completely, although with the passing of the centuries they become fewer in number and lessened in power.
An Aquilonian noble, Lazrith of the Gehring family, has discovered the legends relating to one of these beings and now seeks out help to find and use its power. He is in a race against his rivals, however, while hiding his purposes from those closest to him.
We're tired of SIMs where nobody roleplays, or where the roleplay is constantly ruined by the OOC comments and chit-chat. In the Isle of the Mists, we enforce roleplay. If you are caught speaking OOC, you'll suffer experience point loss, or ejection from the sim. You may also be banned for repeated infraction. We are looking for roleplay, we enjoy our world, and invite you to come along to experience it - but do it in-character!
any Avenues of Play:
The Isle of the Mists RPG is built around roleplay, with many layers for players to engage in. You may decide to get involved in political play, by mingling with the aristocracy of the Palace. If high society is not your style, there is the seedy village of Cove Town, at the Forgotten Harbor. Here a small cluster of houses have been built around the only safe place to land a ship. It has largely fallen prey to prostitution, slavery, gambling, and other corrupt vices that are a natural byproduct of the Pirates who frequent there. There is also the peasant farming village in the cleared fields of the eastern coast, where you may elect to farm, tend animals or venture into the dangerous bog. Some players may decide to study healing and alchemy, or perhaps dabble in magic.
Based on Pen and Paper RP:
This sim is based on the concept of pen and paper roleplay. We use a meter that enhances roleplay, and manages such things as skill checks.
You can learn more about the meter here.
The sim owner is an avid roleplayer with over 20 years of tabletop and professional gaming experience - and the support team is composed of amazingly talented roleplayers. If you are tired of meaningless sims where your roleplay is ignored because the cliques that have formed don't recognize you - or if you are tired of your roleplaying being marred by the constant ooc - If you would like to immerse yourself in the mystery of a lost island, then visit us in world!
Begin your adventure!
