Hi folks!

For those of you that are big nerds like me and like to Roleplay, read on!
Those that are interested but not sure... read on if you'd like!
Those that hate Roleplay (RP) or just don't care for it... keep browsin' art! :)


I grew up on the internet as a teenager doing rules-based but still freeform live chat type Roleplaying. It was great fun and I had a blast! Sadly there are not many places around that have that sort of thing anymore so I made a place. It is MUCK based, which means it's text based  RP, sort of in a chat setting. It's a bit like role-playing in a living book, where you connect and it's all text, but each area is described and you can move around the textual world.

My Roleplay World is called Haezyn. Haezyn is sorta/kinda like an alternate earth with a bit of magic and talking critters.

General features:
- Haezyn has some 'base rules' that define the Lore of Haezyn and help create guidelines, to prevent unfair power-playing and so that there is some world immersion.
- You can play as nearly any real life animal, human, or any of many fantasy creatures.
- PG-13 rating. Since this is a realistic RP, some minor violence might happen between players, but never 'adult' situations.
- Real-time RP (like a chat, but where many players are logged in at once and in different 'rooms').


We are still very small, and so sometimes during the day it's very quiet on the server. Do not despair! Try logging in during peak times, which are usually in the evenings. Many of our players have day jobs and/or go to school and so people log in at different times.

If this interests you please feel free to read the Haezyn website! There are pages for the rules, species guidelines, and so forth. If you do sign up, be sure to keep the page with MUCK commands on it handy for when you log in! It has most of the basic commands listed for you to navigate and learn. It's okay if you've never done a MUCK before. Many of our players are new to them as well! No one will make fun of you if you are new.

Before I join, may I ask if people there are still active? I browsed the forum, and most of the posts are from October.

Right now we have a core of about 10-15 people that log on regularly, though there are times when there is no one on the server. Activity seems to cluster around the 'prime time' hours for Europe and then again for the West Coast of the USA.

Haezyn sounds really pretty after reading all of the pages on the site :iconxalltheyplz:

*sorry*

anyway, I was thinking a couple days earlier about "what if there were such a thing as text RPs?" (since I was reading the other comments and frankly, I'm not old enough to remember text RPs from ten years ago, since I wasn't an internet-tard back then).


ANYWAY

sounds like lots of fun! I requested a character

Nice! Did you ever happen to play in the "Chathouse" back in the day? There were so many channels there it was crazy. I always used to play in the gargoyle watch, wolves den & vampire court. Had tons of fun!! After that I really shifted onto mIRC channels on dalnet to rp. Thanks for the link! I'll have to check it out. :)

I prefer text RPing myself...(chatroom based nor forum based). I used to hop on a site called The Keep all of the time but some of the people there are real pricks. Last I knew a lot of them liked to get all anal about your character and what he/she is and whatnot. Then you get those 'elitests' who drive you just as crazy as the 'noobs' who don't take it seriously enough. I don't know...I mean I tend to paragraph post myself and prefer to interact with people who are there for more than just getting their character hooked up. But come on, if there is just a conversation going I don't need to type a full paragraph just so say "Yeah I agree with you." or something.

I'll have to look into this RP thing of yours. xD

We are semi-causal, I'd like to think. I don't mind folks that post long paragraphs, but at the same time, I don't mind just a sentence or two either, especially in some situations! I want folks to enjoy themselves. Be immersice, but there is no requirement to write a book either. If anyone gives you a hard time on Haezyn you are always welcome to email me.

Good to know. I prefer having fun during a RP...the plots that unfold are always so interesting to me and I love coming up with new stories and plot twists. Normally everything goes smoothly as long as the other person(s) involved are putting effort into it as well. I definately like quality over keeping to a strict length; like I said you need to write enough to cover bases and most converstation posts don't have to be a mile long in order to do so.

Hey there -- just stumbled across your new MUCK today, and I'm quite intrigued. I've been roleplaying on various games for over a decade now, and have been running my own 'talking animal' theme on Meadows as well, and unique new places tend to catch my interest. I've signed up for the forums (as I'm not yet sure what I'd want to play, and was hoping for maybe some leads on wanted characters), but I was a little curious to know more about the people behind it as well, and I found your posting here. Might I have met you before on any other wildlife games, past or present? :)

I played briefly on Aftermuck, unfortunately right before it went away. That was the only place I ever played though, sadly!
I have a character listing on the forums, and once you're approved (you should be, now) you can see some chat lots and get a feel for things. We have a stark overpopulation of predator type species to prey type species, and so while any character that meets the rules is welcome, if you want to play species that is NOT an apex predator (even if it's a second character) that'd be awesome!

SpazKitty Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2011
Very nice. I'll take a peek through the rest of the forums when I get the chance to try and come up with a character -- but in the meantime I was also wondering about exchanging links/buttons/ads/whatever between Meadows and Haezyn, if you'd be interested in cross-posting? (For instance, you're welcome to post an ad on our OOC board here: [link])

I wonder, what would be the best way of getting in touch with you? I'd love to chat a bit, wizard to wizard, about various MUCK-related things (for instance, if you need any programs, I'd be happy to lend copies of my own code)... Messages here, PMs on the forum, or should I just register a character and contact you on-MUCK?

The best way to chat with us is haezyn@gmail.com if you want to address general muck stuff, because my husband is the one doing all the coding. :) That way we will both get the messages and can respond in kind.
Otherwise yes you are welcome to chat with us in the OOC room in the muck! One of us tries to be in there any time we are at home.

Neat roleplay! I haven't done a MUCK in ages, I stick mostly to literate forum RP. If I had more free time I'd check it out, but between my job, art projects, and working/playing on a friend's site, I'd probably self-destruct if I added something else XD

If you have time yourself for more fantasy world roleplay, I'm involved in a longstanding one with a detailed world, free character art, and lots of dedicated players. There's magic and sentient creatures on that isolated world too. It's called Realm of Dreyrull, feel free to stop by and take a peek. It's freeform within the world rules, and there are various levels of RPers there, so there's a spot for everyone to get in on some fun :3

Oooh!

If I may pimp a site you may enjoy! It's called the RP Repository, where you can make free sites for your characters (or groups for your settings) and network with other RPers. The community is fantastic and while it's generally forum based, you can convert any thread into a real-time chat. [link]

:woohoo: Awesome! I have always liked roleplaying, but I live in a small area, so the spare time activities here are a little limited :( Have you heard of Mizahar? It's a little more author-friendly and so I haven't done anything yet, but it seems very good if you like writing stories :) It's very big too I think, "Mizahar - The Writers' RPG" is a forum category with over 5800 threads :XD: I'll check yours out, guess it's better to be there from the start also :D link to Mizahar: [link]

Sounds pretty cool and it is really a shame that the chatrooms have lost all their roleplayers. This is a great way to advance your imagination and your writing skills, I used to write novels as a hobby because so many ideas kept creeping in my head from all the roleplaying but since it all stopped, so has my writing.

I dont think Ive ever used a MUCK based for RP, but I am very interested. Love the setup of the website and forum, so I submitted a character to join. I probably wont be insanely active in the beginning at least until I develop a new routine. (will be having my first child in a month or less and there's a good possibility we might be moving as well). >.< But I do plan on being around as much as I can. I love RP and this has grabbed my interest. ^.^

oh!! Nambroth, you've got your own RP place? :D! I'd love to come check it out sometime. This is Essera/Akkra/Eidolen/Taeruk/Vaeryn/Asua/Syvvez/Saure/Sepherem... to name just a few... eh, i'm sure that's enough for you to connect the dots.
From Istaria? ^^.
Me and some others have our own place we typically RP, so I've got a 'home', so to speak... but if you're on this MUCK, It might be worth popping into from time to time. Never actually USED a MUCK, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. xD

Hi Essera! I remember you.. we RP'd together a few times, though I think mostly I was playing Vesper! Feel free to join us, it's the same type of RP we used to do on Horizons though obviously (and sadly) without the graphics.

I plan on it! :) I like the realm you've got set up by the way, although I do lament the lack of magic. And the ban on violence... heh... well, you might know how I like those dark and sadistic RPs. :p
Oh well. :P

I just hope there aren't stifling chat buffers. These days my posts range from two to five paragraphs... or plus or minus depending on how i'm feeling, of course, as well as whether my partner is reciprocating that length. Xd. I don't mind posting shorter, but my post quality suffers.

I don't mind the lack of graphics, though. It only encourages the participants to describe their surroundings and their own character more. :3.

:iconnambroth:
Nambroth Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2011  Professional General Artist
Minor violence is okay-- the world is not perfect! We just ask that if it gets graphic that it gets taken someplace private, since right now all the areas are public areas.

I think our buffer is somewhere around 1,000 characters per single chat entry. It's just there to prevent flooding, etc. :)
