    Hello. I've just discovered this long running RP, and am now looking around.

    Just want to say I'm amazed at the sheer scale of things, as an amount of content and as an amount of time.

    Seriously considering throwing a character in, but it's been a long time since I freeformed anything, and I'm not too confident in my ability to craft a complex personality, and not just a weird mashup of archtypes. |p

    Complex personalities come later! I'd recommend throwing whatever at Trog's Tavern.

    I think I started with just weird mashups of archetypes. Personality seems to have come later, usually, at least for me.

    "Weird mashup of archetypes" is kind of a running theme of the Nexus.

    Trying very hard to keep up a good posting rate, with hopes of improving actual quality once I have the speed down.

    EDIT. My post in the name change thread a while back went into effect. Still the same person.

    Does anyone have any good resources for coming up with dungeons? I'm planning one at the moment, but I am... bad at this.

    If I might suggest one, there's https://donjon.bin.sh/. I'm currently trying to figure it out for a dungeon I'm running, because I'm bad at it as well (too indecisive)

    Hope it helps!

    Unless, of course, anyone else has a better tool for you (and I) to use, that is!

    The dungeon I'm running was pretty much 100% improv followed up by "if this is how it is, *why* is it that way?" - and then just keeping track of things I've previously said.

    tbh I feel like that makes for a decent dungeon, so long as you keep track of things. I've previously used Google Spreadsheets and Twine and Notepad to do that, so that's fine. Twine is pretty nice.

    These things won't help you come up with the dungeon, though. Just keep track of it.

    I use donjon too, only as maps. The details, inhabitants and treasure I improvise. Traps, too. It's not designed for something as free-form as Nexus, and I don't generally go for 'monsters' dwelling in such places. I swap them for bandits, cultists and so on. Or giant spiders and stuff like that.

    Good to meet you, Cheshire wolf! Trog's Tavern is a traditional place to start, in the sense it's where pretty much anyone can go and people have been suggesting as a good place for first posts for years. Otherwise, there's the Black Dragon's Den and Dancing Fox Inn, both also public houses, or one of the cities.

    We have a Discord, linked in the first post I think, you're welcome to pop in there and get to know us that way, and I look forward to getting to know you and interacting with your characters.

    Hi!

    Welcome!


    Earl of Purple is correct, I'd recommend Trog's Tavern as a good place to post; just introduce your character there.

    Hello.

    I have a roleplaying itch and few ways to scratch it. I was thinking of starting a character in Nexus. My current concept is to start with basic amnesiac swordsman washing up on a shore somewhere and go from there. Suggestions for where he could show up?

    Hey there!

    If you're into having someone wash up ashore, your best bet is probably the Outside thread!

    We have a Discord chat where most of our OOC chatter happens. Should be linked in the first post!

    Welcome to the Nexus! We also have the Seaside thread, which is more explicitly watery. Both it or Outside would be fine options if that's how you want to start.

    I think I'll make my guy be washed ashore on some Seaside island. I put a bio of him in the directory. I'm willing to hear comments either here or on Discord.

    Hey everyone! I think I really want to try jumping into this with a Dresden-style Fae character!

    So let's see... all I really need to do is post the character in the directory.. and then.. I guess wander into Trog's Tavern?

    I have to admit, I've vaguely heard of Nexus, though.. I don't know much. I think it might be overwhelming... but I've got to give it a shot!

    Hi!

    tbh you don't really need to post the character in the directory, but it helps some people to do that. So, if that's what you want to do, then do it.

    And, yeah! Trog's Tavern is a decent place. There's also a couple other places you can start, but Trog's is perfect.
