Welcome

Table of contents


Newgulf is a forum-based roleplay that takes place in a fantasy setting for people who are ages sixteen [16] and above. The location is a western steampunk world, post-apocalyptic and restrictive, filled with magic, mythology, and danger.

All of the characters here are original, created by their respective owners, none of them taken from any other setting or world. Eventually, all these characters together will create an involved, interactive story, in which they will develop and grow and learn about each other.

Starting Out

As a guest here at Newgulf, you have access to the wiki and all of the RP areas on the forum. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this access.
  • Most importantly, look over the Code of Conduct, so as to know what's acceptable and unacceptable behavior.
  • If this is your first RP forum, head over to the RP resources section to read more about what this is and how it works.
  • Once familiar with RP, read up on the world information, learning about the setting, culture, religion, magic, social classes and what history is known.
  • If you have any questions, feel free to PM a moderator, post in the questions forum, or join in our chat.
  • Look over other characters to see what sort of people we have already, what gaps should be filled, or to get ideas on how to flesh out a character.
  • We also encourage you to read up on the forums, some. Look over some of the RP that has already occurred to get a feel for style of RP, quality of writing expected, and recent events that have gone down.

Registering

Every member must register with the first and last name of their character. If you'd like to register with a different name, and think you have cause to do so, then the moderators may allow it. I've you've already registered with the wrong name, feel free to PM one of the moderators to request a change.
