Continent of Altrus
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Continent of Altrus is an original world that we have created where you will train to become the hero to save and recover Altrus from the grasp of its enemies, the outraging demons.

:bulletblue: We do literate RPG style
:bulletblue: We have our own geography that could help you imagine our world better
:bulletblue: We have an original plot that is easy to follow through
:bulletblue: You can roleplay even without applying for a character
:bulletblue: We have competitive admins and moderators to assist and guide you
:bulletblue: We have an 18+ Board for mature contents
Greetings, everyone!

We apologize that we put Altrus on a sudden hold due to real life being a monster for all of the admins and we weren’t able to look after the boards as how we have planned.

But do not fret! Altrus is back with its new training system and updates for everyone!

For details, they are listed below:

1. Choices for Old trainees

Old trainees (accepted applications) are being called back on duty to do what we must. You will be given three choices for your characters:

  • Graduate and become official soldier/elite (with discussion),
  • Stay as a trainee, and
  • Kill your characters

For your decisions and further discussion, please send a private message to Narrator in order to build your character’s elements, weapons, skills and units. You can also freely join in chatbox to talk it out with everybody.

You are advised to send in your upgrade requests not later than April 30th else your character will be “killed”.

For character upgrade messages, please put in subject “Character Upgrade” and fill up the following form:

Position: Which unit or you want to be Elite?
Element: For soldiers, you need to choose one.
Skills: You can make up to three.

2. New Training System

We decided to renew our training system from by batch to individual which can make players freely start topics with or without other players (Narrator/Admins/NPC will HAVE to interact, of course). For more information, you can proceed to Training Ground for the updated threads.

3. Thread Archives

We have archive open and closed old threads at the deepest parts of our forum boards. Everyone can still open and read them on their free time since they are now part of Altrus’ history.

4. New Missions and Quests

We will be releasing missions for all official soldiers and generals to participate in and brand new quests for everyone to enjoy.

These new things may affect your view of Altrus but we hope that you are still willing to become the hero that we need.
Thank you for giving us your time to listen/read.

So I'm a little confused, how does this all work?
AltrusContinent Featured By Owner Edited May 23, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist

We are an RP Forum. If you are not familiar with it, here is the definition:

It is a form of progressive story telling conducted on a forum. So each person adds their piece of the story involving their character/characters.

So for us, we have created a world (The Continent of Altrus) in which players can move around in and develop their characters based on the aspects and restrictions of the world.

In our story, Altrus was attacked by demons and is in the verge of destruction. The leaders of this land decided to create a Training Order to find and train men and women who can help defend the citizens or fight off the demons. These men and women (the members of the forum) will start off as trainees and level up from there.

As for how the RP works, the admins will give some prompts and events in which the members can base their RPs from. For example, we will give a side quest "to retrieve some minerals from this area"; the members can then build scenes with their corresponding characters around that prompt. The members can also start an RP among themselves without prompt from the admins (as long as they stay within the bounds of the main story)

For more information, please read this Beginner's Guide

Hey! I just found out about your Roleplay Forum and I have to say, it looks VERY interesting. :meow: I even already pictured a character just by reading the guidelines and backstory, haha. I'm in fact planning to join, but there's one question I have before I create a character -- I read that it's mostly fantasy, so about magic and the likes -- would mages be considered legitimate classes within the roleplay world? I checked the different topics but I couldn't find any specific information about whether or not magic-focused classes are allowed. (Perhaps I accidentally read past it, that's a possibility as well xD)
And if mages are allowed, are they strictly elemental? Is there any specific way magic works within the world? Or are player characters not at all allowed to use it?

Again, if this information can actually be found on the forums, I probably read past it. In which case, whoops, my bad ^^;

Thank you for your interest in our forum!

We haven't really included class system in the RP because we thought it might complicate things. But if you want to indicate a class, you are free to do so in your character sheet :)

So about your question, yes, a mage is a legitimate class in Altrus as we do have mage weapons in our selection (staff, orb, wand).

But the magic depends on the weapon itself. Put simply, the magic that a player wields come from the weapon and not the player itself. As of now, the players are only allowed to choose 1 from the 4 elements when they receive their Elemental weapon. We did this to prevent characters from becoming overpowered because where's the fun in that? :XD:

When a trainee graduates, they are given an elemental weapon and they are asked to create 3 types of (reasonable) skills that would fit within the bounds of their chosen weapon and element.

Please see here for more information about the weapons:

I hope this answers your question :)
Feel free to contact us if you have additional questions.

Awesome! That's a pretty neat system. :D Keeps things balanced, too.

Well -- knowing this, I think it's time for me to head to character creation. :P
Thanks for the information!
