Nepenthe Roleplay Community LaunchesJuly 2, 2007
by Onder Skall
Can’t wait for White Wolf’s MMORPG? Now you don’t have to. I caught this one from the forum:
The Nepenthe Roleplay Community is proud to announce the opening of its premier roleplay environment “The Domain of Nepenthe”.
The Domain of Nepenthe is based upon White Wolf’s new World of Darkness setting and its gamplay focuses on Vampire: the Requiem, Mage: the Awakening and Werewolf: the Forsaken, set in a custom designed, modern-day island city off the coast of Maine. Caught in the grasp of urban decay, criminal organizations, gang wars and even darker things that go bump in the night, the troubled city of Nepenthe, Maine has been beautifully rendered across three sims, the mixed architecture, decaying slums, bleak high-rises and the long shadows they cast adding to the dark, disturbed and dangerous theme that permeates every corner of the Domain of Nepenthe Roleplaying Environment.
The Nepenthe Roleplay Community offers options for beginners, casual and serious roleplayers, making use of the DCS2 as well as a modified version of the Mind’s Eye Theatre Live Action Roleplay ruleset.
Players have the option to simply join in the play at the basic level, creating a DCS2 character and taking part in the many oppurtunities for roleplay and interaction offered in the Domain of Nepenthe, including taking up ‘jobs’ in various venues (including a strip-club, a local diner, a posh but disturbing restaraunt, a hospital, asylum, courthouse and police department just to name a few) where they can earn tips, or on a more serious level by applying for membership in the Embraced Roleplay group, which offers weekly sessions for Vampire: the Requiem, Mage: the Awakening and Werewolf: the Forsaken (currently, only the Vampire group is active, meeting on Sundays at 2:30pm SLT, with the Mage group just forming and the Werewolf group to be coming together as interest increases) as well as defines the overall storyline for the Domain of Nepenthe, with sessions for individual/smaller groups at Storyteller discretion.
You can find our rules and a great deal of out-of-character and in-character information regarding the Domain of Nepenthe, as well as contact information for the GM & ST Teams in our OOC Lounge, located in Lost Nepenthe.
We hope you’ll find the Domain of Nepenthe to be as interesting as we’ve found creating it, and we look forward to seeing what you can do with it.
