Exhausted by the years we can still escape this barren misery/But even with our shackled wrists we can fight our way through this/And we'll power all aboard the ship to total liberty!

My mom found one of those old 1950's 'how to be a good wife' books. According to dad she's spent the entire morning laughing uproariously at it. I think she's gonna burn it.

New job is going well. Greenhouses are shockingly like factories.


Hello there.

I'm Ophidian, as you might have guessed, I have a certain fondness for snakes. I'm also interested in history (with middle eastern and mongolian histories being of particular interest to me) and anthropology. Aside from this, I tend to enjoy lovecraftian fiction, various genres of sci-fi, historical fiction and low fantasy with the occasional tidbit of high fantasy.

Ah yes, I'm gay. That may be pertinent. If this is an issue, I kindly direct you to the nearest den of starving lions. Or wolves. Whichever you prefer.

I’m back to normal here.

Seems my sacrifices to the Lords of the Far Ether paid off.
Glad to see you here!

I hope you have as much fun around these parts as I do!
@Ophidian Could you give me an example? I would draw the line at like demons or whatever, but maybe someone with vampire like abilities like blade would be acceptable.

That answers my question actually, I wish you luck with the RP.
I might, depending on what precisely the power restrictions are. Would supernatural characters be accepted or is this purely modern-day super types?

I ask because superhero comics sometimes mix the two, so I am unsure of what to expect.
Yeah, thanks but no thanks then. Sorry.
I've got a Star Wars character of mine that I'm pretty eager to use, at some point. An old Imperial of mine.

Though I admit, I much prefer the old EU to Disney.

Understood, what I was half-toying with as a concept probably won't work then, since the idea-an independent colonial government's agent, there to stir up trouble-was somewhat dependent on space travel being a thing.

I wish you the best with your rp!
I'm always up for some slave liberation*, though I'm curious as to how sci-fi this is. Are there offworld colonies? Etc.

*My spirit guide may or may not be the angry ghost of John Brown. Incidentally I've been told by a trusted source that broadswords are essential for slave liberation.

For reasons.
I might be interested. There's race I've been wanting to try out. army on the march.

Hello, hello hello. I'm Ophidian. And recently, I've had a few slots on my RPing schedule open up. I've been on guild for awhile now, and I've been blessed with some truly great partners, I'm still RPing with some of the people I met during my first days here. I've come to consider this website something of a home, to be honest. I've never made an interest check before, so excuse any errors and confusion.

I'm very flexible in terms of setting-I can write sci-fi, fantasy, post-apocalyptic...basically anything you see tagged in the topic in all honesty. I have the most experience with fantasy however. And I tend to prefer darker fantasy, as such things go. Realistic without being....realistic. Heh. In terms of what I write, characterwise, I've written everything from Imperial Grand Moffs, scheming princes, to vampire counts, werewolf knights, communist catboys (who are also somehow cowboys)....and everything between. Heh.

If you want a list of fandoms I know-off the top of my head, Warhammer 40k, Warhammer Fantasy Battles, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Fallout...etc. If it isn't listed here, just ask. I might know it. I tend to prefer nonfandom RP's however, with the exception of Star Wars and perhaps Fallout, which I'm always game for. But overall, I like to develop a setting with my partner, make up lore, worldbuild. I'm a sucker for that.

And regardless of setting, I'm also a sucker for good romance. Indeed, I work it into almost everything I write.

I won't wear out whatever goodwill I have here thing by prattling on. Let's get to the thrust of it, eh? My rules are fairly simple, as such things go.

1. I want someone who can write-I don't ask someone be perfect. But if all I'm going to get is two sentences, then we might not work. I prefer paragraphs. I myself can reliably give you three paragraphs, sometimes a small novel. I just ask my partner be able to meet me in regards to quality, and failing that, effort.
2. I'd like my partners to be over eighteen, for my own comfort. I don't want to quibble over what amount of violence in an RP is suitable for young minds. :p
3. Consistency wise, I'm willing to wait. Believe me, I know life wears at you. I just ask for a heads up if it's going to be weeks. I also expect the favor to be returned, I try to post as much as I can. If you feel I'm too slow, tell me and we can talk it over.
4. I only write mxm, in terms of romance. This isn't negotiable.
5. I don't shy away from darker themes, but I don't write incest, rape or anything of that sort. This is a hard line, and I won't budge on it.
6. I prefer to RP via PM or discord. PM over discord.

I don't really have anything solid in mind, I just have some openings. So I'll end this with two samples of my writing. One for sci-fi, one for fantasy. Fantasy was written with a partner, sci-fi was written on my lonesome.
