Quick FAQ



Check out the Guidebook below for complete information on the group.

:bulletred: How do I join the group? :bulletred:
Otherworlde RP Group Application by viralremix
Fill out the application and submit it to the Students folder. If the application is accepted, you will be sent an invite.

:bulletred: What are the activity requirements of the group? :bulletred:
One deviation (roleplay, story, art) per three months. You don't have to pass your classes but your student might be sad... granted, it's not hard to pass a class if you turn in a quick picture, short roleplay, or short story twice in three months.

:bulletred: I'm intimidated by the group. I don't know if I'm good enough? :bulletred:
Well, you shouldn't be! We have a large range of roleplayers with lots of different skills. Beginners to experts... you'll learn a lot while you're here, or teach a lot. But everyone's welcome.

:bulletred: What submissions do you accept? :bulletred:
Logged roleplays, short stories/long stories, artwork (traditional or digital). Just about anything!

:bulletred: What is EXP used for? :bulletred:
It is most useful in tournaments, but as a general rule, EXP gauges how strong a character is in comparison to his/her/hir peers.

:bulletred: Where do people roleplay? :bulletred:
Get new partners by commenting on apps of characters that interest you. You can also join the Skype Group and join into random small RPs that start up to flesh out your character and get others used to them, or ask if anyone wants to start one with you privately.

:bulletred: How do I join the Skype Group? :bulletred:
Send your Skype username to the group!

HOLY. SHIT. I thought I was intricate when it came to writing stories but this is on another level. This is the biggest breath of fresh air after sifting through endless mounds of poorly crafted academia rp groups. I read through the guide and I looked through all the departments and I'm thoroughly intrigued with the pure artistry of this group. I feel pumped!

(Btw I don't know if this was an accident or something but the side bar with all the departments on it doesn't have chronomancy on it)

Hi there! We're glad you're interested. Our founder has poured quite a lot into making Otherworlde, so I'm sure he appreciates your words the most.

(And no, that is no accident. Our Chronomancy Department has recently closed down.)

Yeah, another student told me about the shut down. But now that there are gardens being grown in the building, maybe the plants will gain special time related properties Sherlock Holmes Giggle  Idk. It's just a theory.

Lol! Quite possibly. You'd have to bring that up with the new professor of Herbology ;)

Wow. I didn't know (I'm new here if you couldn't tell already 😂😅) That's really sad but at least the building is being put to good use now.

It's good to ask questions! Sometime you'll get a response deepening on what you ask, and who you ask.
True :'7

Also Otherworlde opens again around September, so if you really want to join, it should give you enough time to craft up a character to use! ^v^9

I am very interested in submitting an application for this group, but I'm not sure which journals I need to read first. Could someone help me find them?
