[New Banner, thanks to Lady Kama Succuboss]
_____Gaia Prime is a world of chaos, a disorganized world of random wonder and unimaginable magic. In one place legions of armored warriors clash in the sweltering heat of battle, while just past the mountain a lich scientist makes a breakthrough on the perpetual motion engine. Cities like the futuristic and cosmopolitan Durem (nicknamed "The City of Bars," for its popular assortment of clubs and pubs) are the hub of commerce. The more quaint mega-suburbs, like Barton, serve as the well-to-do homes for many of Gaia's citizens. However, there is no city like the planar metropolis known as Sigil.
_____Sigil is a city steeped in magic of numerous origins, the Gaian crossroad of the Multiverse. This place is the reason for the presence of elementals and their offspring on Gaia. Bards call Sigil the City of Doors because of the large number of portals scattered throughout, but the locals aren't usually that poetic. To some, the city is a cage because it's tough to leave once you've tasted all that Sigil has to offer...
_____A New Dawn has come to Sigil but darkness always come before the light. After several demonstrations demanding a central government by a budding political party known as The United Workers Party, the Merchant Guilds of Sigil (Sigil's defacto Rulers) violently dispersed a large rally. This has been called the Odessa Massacre and this event has triggered a public outcry that has a potential to grow into a major conflict in the near future...

The Nuts and Bolts.
What is Sigil?
How to Join the Roleplay Easily
Front Page Update
_____Alright guys, its crunch time. The Lady of Pain will be returning to Sigil which will usher in a new age of roleplaying. This means that we need to get plots contingent on her not being around done within 3 months. The cut off date for this is august 19th. On that date, all plots must be summarized and we will start at the return of the Lady.
_____A list of available DM's has been added in the Rules section.
_____The Civil War, plotline has been updated.
Plot Event Night Poll
_____Plot event night is a night in which we promote players to post in higher volume and to conduct important plot scenes when the most people can be around. This is the day where we will try to really get the plot moving forward at a more expedient rate.
Saturday was the day picked
What Has Happened so Far?
_____Please check the bottom of the page. I will complete this later. If I didn't mention your character or their name, let me know, but I intend to try to fit in as many name drops and thread drops as I can into the short synopsis.
The Guildhall: City of Business
_____It has become necessary of late to reorganize the way the OOC thread works. The Guildhall: City of Business thread is a plot focused OOC thread, for those whom want to keep topic of conversation centered on the roleplay. The rules of this thread are tailored to create a constructive atmosphere.
Sigil: Hall of Epics
_____Sigil: The Hall of Epics is a story Synopsis OOC thread. Here you can post short (or long) synopsis of what is going on with your character in the thread. I'd like everyone to post here. Don't feel pressured to do anything long or extravagant, we just need short updates that can give people a halfway decent understanding of what is going on with your character in the story.
Sigil Alert System and Time Tracking
_____When you first post in Sigil, you will be added to the Sigil Alert system. This will allow me to send people new updates and information daily about changes in the thread. Also we have implemented a system of time tracking, that allows us to get a better understanding of the flow of time. A day of RP will take two weeks to play. At the end of two weeks, all ongoing scenes must be concluded and the next day must begin. Of course some scenes take a long time to complete and cannot be summarized or fast forwarded. In these cases we have extension request forms that you can submit if you need more time for a big and pivotal scene.
The thread will transition over into next day at the conclusion of or 8pm pst on 9/6/13. Scene may be completed later, just the thread may continue moving at that point. So still, no rush.
