There are a few things to note when it comes to The Arena Inbetween, and that is that everything is structured and has a schedule. Please, if you haven't been confirmed for a character yet, then DON'T post here in the IC yet. The game is open and ready now!
As I said before, There is a schedule for this game, which basically means there is an order the posts will go. Here's the system for you, read over it if you want to get aquainted with it.
Story Post- A Story post is any post made by me, Liseran. These posts will advance the over all narrative of The Arena Inbetween. Story posts will not directly conflict with player posts, so you don't have to worry about me forcing an ending on your characters that you don't want. The Story posts will mainly be here to add some new element to the Arena Inbetween, and everything else will be influenced by the players. The very first post in the IC will be a Story post.
Event Posts- An Event post is a post that will detail the most recent arc, or in this case, event in the Arena Inbetween. Think of it as an announcement for what your characters will face in the Arena next. Event posts are where you will find out whether or not you will be partcipating in a battle royale, or a twisting maze of challenges. Only I can write Event posts, but if you have an idea for a really cool Arena event, than feel free to share it!
Player Posts- This is where you, the Travelers, come in at! Everyone who is participating in the Arena Royale will make a serious of posts at whatever length they prefer. You stop making posts when your character is finished with the Event. Your character cannot finish the event in the length of one post. You must make at least three posts before comppleting the Event with your character. Once you have finished the event, you can make a few more posts wrapping up any loose ends you may have had while writing the posts.
Intermission Posts- This is a type of post that only I can make. Once everyone has wrapped up there Events, I will make an intermission post that reveals what The Staff of the Arena are doing. You can think of it as a shorter Story post, and in fact, because they are so similar, after the intermission is done the next Event Post will be made.
The story will advance in this order.
Players have a generous amount of time to respond to the game, if you are unable to continue because of outside circumstances, then it is perfectly fine if you don't respond right away. Just make sure to tell the rest of us in the OOC, or rather you can tell us here, at the Official Arena Inbetween Discord server.
other than that, welcome to The Arena Inbetween!
