This is a sequel to the successful forum game The Ruler of Darkness. This forum game takes place completely through PMs. I send you a message saying what happens, and you respond with what you do about it. Then I tell you the result of your actions and so on. Do not discuss specific story elements in this thread. (For instance, you can say "Why would someone steal a bunch of swords?" since everyone knows that that happened, but you can't say "Who is this Typhoon guy who keeps getting in my way? If he's a player, he better stop.") The reason for this secrecy is so that you will not know who to trust and who not to, and you will be forced to use your own judgment in the situation.
If you would like to join, make up a character and PM me his or her name, basic appearance, and abilities or skills. Optionally, you can post in this thread saying that you join. Do not post character information in this thread (again, for secrecy). Also, you may not use your user name as your character's name.
This game, like the original Ruler of Darkness, will take place primarily on the continent of Tenebrae. Here is a map of the continent and the major cities in it:
What if I wasn't in the first Ruler of Darkness?
Not a problem! This game is a continuation of the first Ruler of Darkness, but it contains all new characters and all new plot elements. You'll be able to catch on quickly.
How often is this game updated?
My goal is once every 48 hours. However, life happens. On some days, I will be unavailable. And I will not update if a lot of people have not responded to the previous update yet.
I'm going on vacation! Can I quit and come back?
Yes, just try to let me know so that I can mark you as temporarily inactive. If you're around other players, I'll choose actions for you, and if you're not, you'll be frozen in statis until you return.
I was in the first Ruler of Darkness. Can I play as the same character?
No. Everyone has to create a new character here. Now that I've released the information about each player from the first one, everyone knows who your first character was, so you need to make a new one that no one knows about.
The game has started. Can I still join?
Always. The Ruler of Darkness is always accepting and welcoming new players.
Can I throw the can into this topic?
No. Due to the nature of this game, I am hereby placing a can shield on RoD2.
I heard this topic used to be a sticky.
Yup. It's just that awesome.
Chapter 1: The Three Divine Crystals
Chapter 2: Greed
Chapter 3: Guardians
Chapter 4: The Beginning of Peril
Note: This topic has been copied from the YYG forums where it was originally created. If you participated in the original RoD2, you are already a participant in this one. Just let me know what your username on this site is and you'll continue from where you left off. If you were not a participant in the original RoD2, you may still join this game at any time.
