Expanding Horizons


For the past week or so, myself and several members of the community have spoken in Discord and began the process of building a large, open-world setting that will exist as a Persistent (or in this case Progressive) World. The point of this is to build something that can involve anyone willing to put the work in, and who wants to play in a world where what you do, and how you do it, matters! Currently we’re gauging interest and working on building and crafting systems that will, eventually, be used to govern the world we’re building and the groups and people who inhabit it.

Right now, we’re simply seeking people interested in having their voice heard and their opinions given in an effort to help build this into something the whole community can enjoy and be a part of. Currently our discussions happen on an unofficial Discord server for the RPGuild. However, with one incoming that will be the official server for the forum, we’ll begin to have meetings and discussions there – and when that happens, you’re all invited!

So, if you have ideas – or just want to express your interest or lack thereof in this project, feel free to post here, or come see any of the people currently running the project on Discord.

Current Expanding Horizons Staff:
Zyamasiel – Founder & Creator
Circ – Co-Creator
Ruby – Helpful Person
Rilla – Public Relations & Face of the RP
Yoshua – Conceptualization and Design

Currently, we’re seeking two more staff members to help us build a world and design our
systems, if you think you’d be interested in making that happen feel free to Private Message
Zyamasiel with a short explanation of why you’d be good for that job.
Thank you for your time, and for reading.

Let’s all come forward and expand our horizons together!

@Rilla, given I am fond of the idea and the news still yet to be spread, the official Guild Discord can be found here.

So, I feel first and foremost the question that every reader of this might have is what is already in mind and in the works? What level of writing and talent are you speaking to? What genre and style? What is considered canon appropriate? A bit difficult to apply one's self, mind and energy without the general of this.

Even if unofficial to the point of, "We have nothing set in stone as of yet.", the opinions of those involved already provide us outsiders much appreciated insight.

Currently the plan is to form an ever-evolving, Nation-style roleplay. Though individuals are more than allowed, and in fact encouraged to integrate themselves into the world - groups of five unique individuals will be the ones who control the most territory and have the most influence and power on the World Stage.

Currently we've gotten a concept for a group outline designed and ready to be put into place on launch. Our goal is to create a persistent story that involves everyone who could possibly want to join.

What level of writing and talent are you speaking to? What genre and style?


All levels and genres. We're not going to be picky and say only this can come in, only this can do this. Everyone and anyone is welcome, as long as they intend to further the stories we're building together. Obviously the better players will be the ones who end up holding the most influence and control ICly, but everyone is welcome to join us in our world - regardless of writing level and skill.

What is considered canon appropriate?


While we would, of course, prefer custom characters and groups - canon is whatever you want it to be. From mundane, every day humans with base technology all the way up to groups capable of using their technology or their magic to terraform worlds to be suitable for their lives.

A bit difficult to apply one's self, mind and energy without the general of this.


Understandable, we're currently in the process of finishing up the systems and we're hoping to have enough interest to launch the program early next week.

Even if unofficial to the point of, "We have nothing set in stone as of yet.", the opinions of those involved already provide us outsiders much appreciated insight.


Very true. We're hoping to have ideas and input from the general community here, too. Right now, groups will have to go through an acceptance process in which a member of the RP staff will approve or deny groups as official based on our guidelines. Characters will be approved or denied with a similar guideline - but will be far less strict in comparison. Groups, being the most influential people in the RP, will have the option of beginning with a planet, a large ship, or whatever other type of livable entity they can come up with. This will be known as their territory. They have full control inside of their territory as far as stories go.

Territories will have 2-3 "crucial" places. Places that are so intrinsically important to the group itself that they're high-value targets. If another group, or even an individual, wants to capture that territory they can attack those crucial points via a judged-fight system. If they attack, and the judge determines they won, then they gain that point - and the losing group loses that point. If a group loses all three crucial points, they no longer control any territory and become nomadic by nature.

I hope that managed to answer some of your questions, and if there's anything else you want to know you can find me on the Discord, or post the message here.
