Yes, though our activity differs than that of a normal roleplay. We focus on literacy and intricate plots so even if our dash seems to have not been posted on for a few hours, it is only because our members are working on their next big thing. Our out of character is just as important to us as our in-character, and we constantly have to-do’s that involve both.
No we do not. We believe that there are more than enough pre-written character biographies to choose from and it seems almost impossible that one of them will not fit the needs that you are looking for.
Tell an admin asap.
Your character is not allowed to leave the country. We want to keep all gameplay, history and present day, in Athoria. We understand that in the past we had many character histories and biographies stem from different areas of the world, but we are attempting to move into a completely different world setting in the future and this is just the start of that. There are a very few selected character biographies that may have traveled here from Vinsor (see Cato Appleby for example), but we have made it so that they either do not remember or their minds have been erased, or something similar. If your character has family that was from Vinsor, you can talk to an admin about how to incorporate that into some history pieces or headspace.
Anyone who was born in the country prior to Vinsor does not know of any other lands in the world. The country itself was heavily warded from the Fae siblings Din, Fafore, and Naryu in order to protect the portals to The Realm of Seven Islands. Needless to say, these people were stuck.
