Exclamation Opening of the dedicated Roleplay website: atys.ryzom.com

Dear players,

After the latest patch 1.5.0 (See patch information here) last Monday, we are now very pleased to announce the opening of a new, official portal entirely devoted to Roleplay on Ryzom: "The Chronicles of Atys".

Ryzom is not just one of the first and only MMORPG's where RP is very extensive, but now it is also the first, in the history of role-playing multi-player games, to take roleplay to a whole new level! The site is completely dedicated to one of your, or even your only, passions: Roleplay! For those who do not know, Roleplay (or RP), is an experience and a unique way of living everyday actions in an MMORPG. The aim is to deeply involve your character in a living, evolving and interactive story - via a framework designed by our team and you, the player.

Through the new site, we invite all Homins and newcomers alike to delve deep into the history and life of Atys. To accomplish this, we offer you more than just a forum - like we have already with the official forum (which, by the way, will be closed for editing). Now you can chat directly with each other, and with the Animation Team, to create the game you've always dreamed of. With them, you can develop complex events that will have a direct impact on the world and your role on Atys - You can shape the events as they unfold. To accomplish this, other new tools and components are also necessary to help you build your story and that of the planet. But we will not reveal everything here! We invite you to discover everything for yourself on the new site.

But this is not all! The launch of the new site is not to be a singular occasion. Indeed, you are all cordially invited for an event on Saturday June 13th at 21:00 (French time, GMT+2). You can learn more by going to the news page on the new site.

On the new site you will also find the Lore, i.e. the universe and the history of Ryzom which you can use to to (re)discover the four peoples, the different eco-systems, the "Powers of Atys" (the Kami and Karavan.) It is an extensive library to help you better interpret and integrate your role and your life in-game.

So come now! "The Chronicles of Atys" at: http://atys.ryzom.com is waiting for you to actively participate in building the world of Ryzom, your home!

Ryzom and its living world Atys await you! If you are not familiar with Atys or Ryzom yet, come join our world, our universe and accept our offer of a 21 day free trial; no credit card needed to participate ...

Re: Opening of the dedicated Roleplay website: atys.ryzom.com

I'm struck first by the beauty of the header. Was it created by the same person who did the mission-giver icons?

As I explore the site I find it mostly satisfactory and ripe with potential.

Good move including REZ.

The interview-style chronicles need some formatting (bold the interviewer's questions and comments).

Registration: Which character do I register as? What if I want to post as a different character at some point?
Interesting that surname/last name is required. Not necessarily a bad thing as it provokes thinking on the matter if the character in question doesn't have one. Could be a bad thing in some cases though.

I feel like Atys is coming to life again after years in mothballs.

It would be nice if the marketing team got this out to all the main MMORPG sites as an official news article. Good free publicity here

You think they have a marketing team? xD

Someone should do it, in any case.
