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.
The Rain of Chaos had passed leaving the world of Solaris changed forever. The shards had stopped falling from the skies months ago and the havoc brought about by them had finally began to subside. Things were different though. The citizens of Solaris needed to learn new ways to use the abilities that had once been taken for granted. For a time the land had been quiet and somewhat peaceful, but a change was fast approaching. Elyndrel Village was still the sanctuary for all the various travelers and citizens, and the atmosphere of Roshema Village was still as temperamental as ever. Every day new discoveries were made, new areas found, and more new travelers from various dimensions arrived at random. The world of Solaris was itself and things were well, or so they seemed. Little did the citizens of Elyndrel and Roshema know that a war was brewing on the other side of the world. At the far western regions of planet Solaris there resided a city of the most brutal and sadistic people, the Vegonians. They were getting ready to venture out across the land and take the world by storm, and anyone in their path would fall… or so they would like to think.
