LoA-RP: Legends of Aria Roleplaying Community

edited September 15 in Roleplaying Discussion
LoA-RP is a community for the roleplayers, storytellers, and lore-lovers of Legends of Aria. The site is primarily focused on the official Citadel Studios servers and lore, but community server players and admins are absolutely welcome. I expect things to be quite slow for a while, but I'll be looking for some help as the community grows. If you're interested in moderating or contributing in some other way, please send me a message. If you have some feedback or suggestions for LoA-RP, please post to our Suggestions & Feedback forum.

Community Features
- A roleplay wiki for guild and character profiles.
- Forums for discussion, storytelling, and roleplaying.
- A calendar for in-game events. (When the game is live!)
- A weekly article highlighting player fiction, art, and notable events. (When the game is live!)

Q&A
Why start the community before the game launches?
We want to build a solid foundation for roleplayers in Legends of Aria from the get-go. That means we have to start now!

Why not just use this forum for RP stuff?
Many players likely will, but it's helpful to have a distinct community tailored specifically for those interested in RP and storytelling.

What about the old Shards Online RP forum?
Some will remember that TonyTheHutt previously hosted a Shards Online RP forum. Tony is short on time these days and he's given me his blessing to go ahead with LoA-RP.

Why use Enjin?
Enjin is extremely popular with roleplaying communities in other games. It makes sense to use what's popular rather than force people to create yet another account. It's also very easy to manage and has a ton of prefab modules to pick from.

    I'm looking forward to this growing. It feels much like old UO stratics where you can create your own stories and group with others in a roleplaying element, and it is also community driven. It'd be nice if the direction was also focused in this forum with character development and possible in-game events but you have multiple admin servers discussing features they want for their servers and mostly talks about new races to add to the game. Those are nice and all too, but as a place where I can come and read other players lifestyles and the adventures they are on, the enjin rp community is extremely nice. Great work Zeph! I will be there often.

    Thanks for the kind words, Nocturn. I'm very much inspired by Stratics but I'm not sure I could pull off something that big. LoA-RP has the benefit of a narrower scope since we're not setting out to cover every facet of the game.

    Your point about this forum being a little muddled is well-taken. We have a lot of different folks looking for different things on the official forums: players just interested in official LoA, community server players, admins of said community servers. Things can be confusing for newbies trying to discern what's relevant to the official game and what isn't. I really think there ought to be a whole forum category dedicated to community server discussion.

    LoA-RP is back at http://www.loa-rp.com
  • Looking forward to a RP community (and as well server) !
    It also reminds me the old UO time ! Where we were gathering in Skara Brae to run dungeons on a RP way ! :)
  • ZephZeph LoA RP Community: loa-rp.com
    Me too, Romain. Great times roleplaying in Skara Brae. Are you interested in a community roleplaying server or playing on the official servers?
  • I still don't know yet. Running a server can be interested too. I'm not yet familiar over the connection between shards - Public and Private if any. But as far I experienced, having a RP community on a public server is quite hard. unless the server is tagged as RP and admin enforce a minimum the server's guidelines.
    For me the most important is being able to set-up a player town with RP event. When people leads the way it's easier to follow.
  • Hi all,

    I can't seem to post in the LOA RP Community forums so figured I'd post here. I'm an oldschool UO player (As I expect most are) and RPed from 99 till around 2005 and they were the best MMO years of my life. Would love to link back up with old CoY, CoRE or ERPA players or RPers from others servers and build an incredible community like it was back in the golden days.

    Is this community global, US, EU, etc? Also, are there any old CoY, CoRE or ERPA players from Europa server back in the day? Be great to make contact again :)

    Cheers
