You enjoyed a lot this year from Terminus Est.
Please help Terminus est and post for 2010.

Spoiler! :
I’m a volunteer.

Like the tens of others who write and draw for Terminus Est, I don’t get paid a cent. But I have been here from the beginning, and I can tell you, we weren’t prepared to get this big.

We are a non-profit, but we are the fifth most visited thread in the forum. Last year we operated with around 3 staff and dangerously few servers. The top ten websites are hundreds of times bigger than us.

This year we are finally adding critical technology and people we’ve needed for years. We can’t wait another year to take this step.

It’s a stretch. We’re the only major thread in the forum that is primarily supported by its users. It’s worked for 1 year, but this year we are struggling to reach our goal with only 6 days left of 2010.

Please help us keep Terminus Est free and stable with a donation of one post, two posts, three posts or whatever time you can afford, Lord Windy.

INTRODUCTION
What is this?
Terminus Est is the (ostensibly tentative) name for five or so Dungeons and Dragons campaigns all being run by myself. The campaigns take all take place in the same universe (well, multiverse, really) and feature more or less the same recurring characters and whatnot. While each campaign is telling a more or less self-contained story there is an overall meta-plot to the entire meta-campaign and as the campaigns go on there will be increasing overlap between both player character and non-player character elements.
All of the campaigns are ostensibly taking place at the same time unless otherwise noted, but really it doesn’t work out quite right. Just assume one or more of the player characters are Time Lords and things make a lot more sense.
Giant fuck-off Dragons, nymphomaniacs, bipolar bisexual Succubi, autistic wizards, crazy spider-ladies, and asshole wizards! Terminus Est has it all!
Dungeons and Dragons?
Yes. We play using a heavily modified version of Dungeons and Dragons Revised Third Edition (AKA D&D 3.5). The modifications have been put into place by myself for a number of reasons, but primarily to make roleplay (traditional roleplaying) and rollplay (dice rolling, number crunching, and gamey things) more interesting, to make classes more customizable and balanced, and also to help make the game run smoother on this online format.
Ultimately, like any good DM, I view the rules as suggestions to be taken lightly.
I’m interested, but isn’t there a lot of story and rollplay to learn?
Yes and no. There’s a lot going on and that’s happened so far, but between myself and the other players you can quickly be brought up to speed on the plot so far. As far as rollplay goes, that is even easier! D&D is very easy to learn and for the most part all the apparent complexity is simply the result of very poorly worded rulebooks. Most of the rules in D&D are very intuitive and simplistic. We can have you up and running in no time.
Sounds awesome, how do I join?
While there are often openings in one or more of the parties for new players, this is not always the case. If you are interested in playing please contact me on AIM (Kodos343) and/or in this thread and we can try and figure shit out. You’ll have to contact me on AIM at some point or another – and I usually am online – so your best bet is trying there first.
Awesome art!
Yes, yes it is. Many of the players are extremely talented artists and have been kind enough to share some of their talents with us by producing art for the campaigns. Praise them and their labors.
Just like good roleplaying I believe this is something that shows considerable dedication and takes time and effort, so I believe it is something that should be rewarded. I award players experience points and/or items in-game for producing artwork, with the caveat that the first picture of their own character(s) does not count. If you are able to draw it is pretty much expected – but not required – as good manners that you draw him/her/it.
Likewise if any of the players commission art, I consider it the same as if they had drawn it themselves, in terms of rewards – it still shows effort and dedication.

Pfft, you picked the worst of the demon gods to make a pact with.

We all know Slaanesh is the greatest.

As many bonus points as crab claws win with Reg, I needed a god that saves me from being ill, not one that shows me how to fit a stero speaker inside my mouth. :P

What's the point of being healthy if you can't burst people's eardrums and require help opening cans :(

The important part is that Reg is alive and well, and back in the fold.

His Ruinous Power of Choice is irrelevant.

I let Hello Panda replace you, man. Sorry.

Anyway, for Panda: The Evil Party is resuming soon. I am still waiting on a loser or two.
