Y
ou don't know how you arrived here. What you remember of your past is foggy at best. All you know for certain now, is that you were chosen for a journey you didn't ask for. You arrive in Providence in a ruined keep on a hill. Here, you discover a single token of help: a Ring of Power. It calls to you, and brings out a power and potential you may not have known you ever had. There is an unknown force that threatens to consume this world. You have been tasked by a mysterious entity, only known as the 'Benefactor', to stop this force of destruction. But how you go about that is very much up to you.

Providence RP is a "people-with-powers" roleplay that focuses on exploring a chaotic world and making the unknown known. It is a world of imagination and strength of will, where belief and expectation play a major role in shaping reality itself.

NEW PLAYER GUIDE

Familiarization

  • I. Rules
  • Our rules are very straightforward and expected of most roleplaying sites. To review them again, please click here.
  • II. Setting
  • Your character wakes up in a dream-like world with little collection of their memory. They are granted a ring upon consciousness, which acts a vehicle for their powers. They arrive from their beginnings at Fallen Keep to the hamlet named "Providence". Providence is a refuge guarded by walls and a watch tower, as the world outside them is unstable and prone to danger and threat.

    Click here to read the story synopsis in full. For other details and mechanics of the setting, check the FAQ.

Application

  • III. Registration & Sub Accounts
  • We expect everyone to have an OOC account upon registering. To create a character account, you must create a new account, and register with their name. Your character account can then be linked under "Edit Sub-Accounts" in "My Controls". That way when posting, accounts can freely be switched by a drop-down menu.

    After approval, an admin will sort your character account into the character usergroup. Don't forget to register for the cbox to communicate on the board!

  • IV. Character Creation
  • Our Application is minimal in information, and we will work with you through PM if there are any issues. Make sure you start the topic in Character Application for reviewal.

    The things we look for in the Powers Section are a description of the physical ring, the theme of the ring's powers, and the talents. Talents are specific skills that can achieve a singular goal or outcome. There is no need to account for limitations or any hard numbers (such as limitations of uses, how many posts, etc) within writing talents.

    To read in-depth about how powers work, check Psyche, and the Rings of Power. If an admin isn't present to answer questions, you can ask something in the Character Creation Megathread.

Integration

  • V. Plotting and Topics
  • We encourage you to make topics whenever you want. As a starting point, it would be good to explore your character's beginnings in The Fallen Keep. Also, use the Personal Plot forum to your advantage! To be clear on topic tagging, anything unmarked will be considered open to others.

    For plotting and chatting, we also have a Discord server where most of us are located. Check the table below for a glossary of topic tags.
