If youíre ready to give something new a try and be immersed in a totally original RP immersive sci-fi roleplaying environment you might be ready to give OtherSpace a try. Otherspace was founded in 1998 by professional journalist/ author Wes Platt who 6 years later is still the driving force between what happens at that Otherspace.
Storytelling is not just a hobby, but a passion for Wes and the other staffers at OtherSpace, who are all selected from current players helping us maintain a continuity of storyline while keeping things new and fresh. We have a little something for everyone both human and non human races from the British inspired Sivadians and Russian descended Ungstiri, to the warlike lizard race of Nall, the psionic Jellyfish-like Centaurans, the glowing Vollistan light singers and prophetic Mystics. Be a criminal, a soldier, a merchant, or a doctor, the possibilities are virtually endless.
We use a fudge-based tasked roll system, but combat is always human refereed and we have a variety of other coded systems that are all designed to enhance the roleplaying experience like +speak which allows conversations in various languages. We are eagerly awaiting the full implementation of OSpace, which will include a trading system and further promote RP.
Our focus is all about making the experience better for players. We have staff assigned to run events on individual planets so there is always roleplaying going on somewhere and never a dull moment.
Otherspace is perfect for the experienced roleplayer looking for a new challenge but we also go out of our way to welcome new players. We have a survivorís guide on our website at www.jointhesaga.com but you neednít grasp everything at first. The staff is always there to answer questions.
As the Journalism admin for the MUSH, I urge you to consider making a reporter character because it offers the perfect opportunity to jump into the thick of things almost immediately and continue to learn about the many worlds and cultures of Otherspace while roleplaying. My first character, nearly four years ago(which is the longest Iíve stayed with any MUSH) was a reporter and I found it a perfect way to become involved in our story. Keep in mind that our game allows for the creation of alts, giving newplayers to our game a chance to start out with a character in one of our humanoid races before moving on to something more exotic. What better way to decide your next alt than going from planet to planet in search of the latest buzz while honing both your writing and roleplaying skills by interacting with a wide variety of our experienced roleplayers.
Just log on and ask for Michela or @mail me if Iím not online. Let your adventure into the world of Otherspace begin and a brief hello to any former players who might be reading this. Címon back! A lot has changed in 6 years. Thereís always something new and weíre better than ever!
