Ulysses RP : Enter the Dragon
Welcome to our “New” Kalidore RP Experience!
The Story of Kalidore is truly at the core of Kalidore’s experience, no matter how involved (or not!) you choose to become: it drives the adoptable as we grow the world. After all, how many new species have grown out of an RP experience? So if you want to keep the world growing, it seems the answer is – RP!
The Ulysses RP began in the fall of 2008, and then fell unfortunately silent (when a certain wee whimsy made an appearance) but was never written off nor forgotten. The intent was to bring it back to life once sustainable, and to create a new, thriving environment for friends to engage and characters to thrive.
We believe that the time has finally arrived, and we hope you will all join us NOW!
Our RP experience is engaging, richly detailed, and evenly paced – we don’t expect a post every day, therefore is perfect for people busy with school or work, and don’t want to be left behind because they had a busy day.
We also view our RP more as “shared storytelling”; while standard rules are in place (ie, no god-modding, respect others, watch for key directions) we encourage participants to be proactive, suggest and lead plot, and work with others (including crossing boundaries or even sharing characters when necessary).
Of course if you have something BIG in mind, it’s a good idea to run it past Lady Whimsy first!
Who can join? Anyone with an >approved character< can join, at any time.
I don’t own a Kalidorian Unicorn; can I still RP? Most certainly – you can RP as a human who has simply not found their unicorn companion yet.
Does my unicorn have to have a companion (or vice versa)? Absolutely not! Not all Unicorns take human companions, and sometimes, a human is not ready to become one.
The advantage of having a companion is that through this bond, eventually the human will be able to use magic. It’s also good time to remind that humans and unicorns are two difference beasts, from very different cultures, and to play them accordingly. For more pointers about the different creatures of the Isle, and life on Kalidore in general, do check out our Guide:
Some other quick notes:
• At the point in time when the RP was started, the most common unicorn breed was the Standard Type (those in the image of Kal and Kaedon). Therefore, for this RP, Mesopippens, Aviquinns, and Toregardes cannot be played… we are very sorry about this inconvenience, but it’s intricle to the plot!
• As well, because of the short time humans have spent on Kalidore, it is assumed that pet relationships – such as with pocket griffons, anagales, etc – have not yet been established. (The Skyree are also an Elvin species, thus not native to the isle) Plus one Adar is simply enough… D:
Want to know more about the Ulysses Story?
We don’t expect anyone to read through the whole Ulysses RP… unless you want to, and for those people who do, it exists in two forms – the original forum version, found here on this site, and a “stitched” version, wherein everyone’s work has been edited together to create a seamless story experience to be enjoyed. We’ve always looked at RPing in Kalidore as a sort of “shared storytelling”, and we are always impressed with how wonderfully the different voices work together to create a whole!
