Welcome to the Solaris RPG website and forum community. This website along with the community, player base, and staff members are dedicated to the ongoing development and evolution of the strictly text-based role playing game Solaris RPG which has been an ongoing project since summer of 1996. By text-based, we mean that the game itself is completely played out through chat rooms. Participating in Solaris RPG is like working with others on a collaborative story. Each player has a role in the game world and the more involved they choose to be the greater their role in the game will be. We try to focus on mature and literate game play to provide a creative outlet for all players involved. We welcome all those interested, from those completely new to the idea of role playing and those who are intermediate or even advanced in the art of role playing. The game world of Solaris RPG is always evolving and growing, and the more involved a player is the more important their role in the game world becomes. This eventually leads to players improving upon and adding to the game world in their own way.
After familiarizing yourself with the way the game works you may create a character by clicking on the Register link in the navigation menu above. There will be several pages of information followed by a simple form to fill out. You should also visit the community forums and register using your characters first name (we prefer first name only). Registering on the forums directly after submitting a character is recommended for a quick acceptance, especially if you make a post introducing your character. After you have registered on the forums and your character has been approved it will appear on the character page within two days. You should be aware that Solaris RPG is a private game and every submission is checked personally by a member of the websites administration. The second step is to register the same character name you used on the forums with the chat rooms (again, first name only is preferred). This does not require validation and is a very simple process. We keep the chat room registration separate of the forums because players usually make multiple characters and prefer logging in separately sometimes. If you're having trouble finding another character to role play with you should post a message in the community forums under Solaris Discussion. We look forward to meeting all new players.
Recently an event known as The Undoing took place. This occurrence sent the present warriors of Solaris back in time nearly 30,000 years. The event was caused by a Watcher by the name of Krauser Killener as a last resort to save his friends and fellow warriors from inevitable doom. While the planet was nearly destroyed in their future, things are as they once were in the new ancient timeline. This is a time far before the Attack of the Neolarions, The Second Flux, and even The Great Wars took place. While many things have changed for the warriors, certain things are still very much the same. Life in the old world is mostly the same as it was in the future, but the world itself is very different. There is much to be explored and discovered all over again and from the future standpoint they once held, the warriors of Solaris who have gone back in time may very well be the ancients they had once only heard stories of. Perhaps this time around, things will turn out differently... or not. The fate of the world depends on the warriors of Solaris this time around.
