Those that know me well know I have a fondness for writing. I've been writing since I was a kid, silly stories about the ABC's or holidays. It's kinda cool to see Kathleen doing that now as well. But that's beside the point of this blog. My fondness for writing got me involved in play by post RPGs first at Dragonmount and now pretty much exclusively at The First Age.
The First Age like Dragonmount is based on the Wheel of Time but with a different twist. It's currently 2045 and channelers are just reamearging. The world building to start off with is pretty great, but with such a small site and with so much unwritten stuff the world is your oyster. Since the creation of the site, there have been two player classes that have been added above Channeler, Civilian, Atharim, Government, Military and Wolfkin. Furia and Sentient were created with the help of members by our Fearless Leader, Ascendancy.
As memebers join, new monsters are created. Wait? What? Monsters? Yes! There in lies another twist. The year 2045 holds many different kinds of monsters as well as strange new classes. Things form myth and legends are true. They are tied into the Wheel of Time universe as well as our current myths and legends. In chat you can debate the theory of the wheel and the pattern, which we've done on many occassion, but mostly it's a great place to get to know your fellow writers and plot your next adventure.
I didn't know how much I missed a small writing group until I came here. I missed interactive writing. I can write Cari all day but it's so much more interesting when you don't know what's going to happen next.
If you miss it too, or want to give it a go, stop on by. There is almost always someone in chat and we are only a post away.
