01/08 - We have officially moved to chats. Contact an admin via AIM if you are interested. Also, since we have made policy changes, you do not have to be a registered member to follow updates. To our anonymous members: no worries, the members-only sections are still just that! You are welcome to edit and delete any personal data if you feel insecure, but please leave your posts. If you want those removed, contact Brittany.

Additionally, the forum may still be used for discussion and other RP, one-on-ones, side arcs, and CD, as well as just logging for people to read. I am not closing the forum, simply smoothing out the RP process.

10/14 - Announcement from Rook moved here.

Welcome! We're happy you're interested in our group. We're always looking to add new members to the family, so we're excited about your visit! Take your time to navigate around the first five links below. If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact the GM through the contact information listed in the Manual.

Introduction

      SonicStory is a Sonic the Hedgehog RPG, to put it simply. Classic, text-based, narrative RP format in AIM chat.

      Instead of freeform, we have a Story Lead and Game Moderator. The SL and GM structure a complete tale from beginning to end, giving both choice and direction in the role playing environment. The primary role of the SL and GM is to ensure no player gets left behind, that there are no surprise plot twists that conflict with another player's story goals, and that the story moves along smoothly with good dramatic structure. That said, you are more than welcome to bring your storyline ideas! Once approved, we will help you see them to fruition! Anyone can be SL for a plot once your idea is approved.

      Since want to remain true to the Sonic the Hedgehog video game, you may see use of item boxes, rings, star posts or springs in action-based stages (though we don't use them as much as we'd like). Zones with alliterative titles and Chaos Emeralds, and even really bad puns run rampant on occasion - you know, the good stuff. Item upgrades are planned to make an appearance.

      Additionally, we understand there is a limited number of canon video game characters worth playing to most of us. To make up for the limited options, we permit original characters and Archie characters on a limited basis, granted they are tailored to the video game universe. They will be introduced just like new game characters, meaning they will be complete strangers to the canon game characters, and the canon characters will be new to your character.



Where do you play?
      The group meets primarily in chats on AIM, which is why we highly encourage applicants to use AIM or AIM on Meebo (or any other multi-messenger application). However, you do not have to be an AIM user to participate in the side RP on the forums. Likewise, you do not have to be a member of the forums to participate in the chats and main storyline.



Who are your members?
      We're always getting new applicants, and some members have real-life take over from time to time, so the list changes frequently. Right now we have a good handful of players, both full-time and part-time. If you would like to see a list of members, they are available by request (with the exception of anonymous players). Just use any of the available methods to contact the GM.

Why should I join?
      That's a good question. Why should you join our group when there are so many other options available? Well, time permitting, we encourage you to join other groups as well! See for yourself which one is for you, or just participate in as many groups as you like. We're confident we'll win your heart over and make you want to stay, but if not, it's all about the fun you have while you're with us.

      As for what we do that's different, here's a list of what we specifically offer:

- Gameverse storylines with canon, OC, and Archie characters allowed (We're not alone in this regard, however)

- Story driven role-play as the main plot (rather than character- or fight-driven)

- Alternate, character-driven role-play as unrelated side plots (free-form)

- Alternate membership - if you're too busy to keep up with a full-time storyline, or if your application is not accepted, we allow you to participate in free-form on the forum with less restrictions than the main storylines.

- Complete anonymity by request. Some people like to remain anonymous for personal reasons. Some groups have restrictions on you participating in multiple boards because they feel it will retract from your time there. We believe that you know your own limits, so we encourage you to join under the guarantee that we will never share your identity or list you as a member.

- Open door environment - if there's anything, and we mean anything, that we can do to accomodate you, let us know. We want you to enjoy your time here, not endure a stressful situation!

- We believe in evolution. The world is an ever changing environment. We keep what works and change what doesn't. If someone has an idea that works better, we're not opposed to using it. That's why we're always under construction. This started out as one big experiment, and we've come a long way, but we'll continue to grow through everyone's effort together.



How to join.
      IM me (preferred), message me on deviantART at http://kingofmoebius.deviantart.com or apply on the forums under Character Select. Guests can post in the application forum, so there's no reason to wait for registration approval to apply. For a list of Characters taken, look under the Character List. Just because there is a profile does not mean that character is still in use.

      If you would like to join as a spectator only (if you like to read RPs or lurk, but not actually play), I am trying to work out a system for you - just let me know! You'll be considered a part-time member as mentioned above, but you will have a different application since you do not have to write anything for us.
