Welcome to Aphelion, Guest! Please log in or register!
Hello, and welcome to Aphelion! Also known as "Many Vampires in Nebraska" ( jokingly, of course ), we're a supernatural / modern/urban fantasy with a crime streak, and an optional boarding school. The school permits both supernatural and non-magical students, and features a middle school, high school, and college on the same campus. We're a no application, no word count, no strict activity check, no cap/ban/ratio, sandbox-y game with larger optional plots to partake in, and feature only six member groups, with a mere four distinct races ( you can also play reborn gods! ). Quite honestly, we're very easy to join; the easiest thing to do is create a mundane human for your first character, pretend we're slice of life, and learn as you go, you legit only need to read the rules and joining guide with this method. This first mundane human can also technically spontaneously develop magic later and become a witch, because magic can manifest at any age. Disclaimer: feels may occur. Disclaimer two: anyone that asks for threads in cbox will probably be told to post an open thread, join an existing one, or post in plotters. If this is off-putting to you, this is not the site you're looking for. We are default rated 3.2.2./high PG-13, but we do go above that via users inputting their birth date.

Joining Guide

Joining Aphelion is fairly straight-forward, but if one needs a step-by-step guide, the Joining Guide is here to help!

First, we need to register. We ask that everyone register first with an OOC account, and then create character accounts by using the subaccount system. Once you've registered, it is recommended to log out, and back in, ticking the 'stay logged in' checkbox on the way back in; the software automatically sets one's session to expire in an hour after registering and being automatically logged in. You will lose data if your login session expires while you're doing something, so we advise you just side-step that entirely.

Once registered and logged in, hover over the top bar's "User Controls," and click Manage Characters. Alternatively, you can find the button at the top (it looks like three people in a small group, the second icon from the left). Once here, click Create/Link, enter a character name (First Last, proper capitalization and spacing), the same password twice (no one can log into it but you through the switcher, so it doesn't matter what it is), and then click Create/Link again.

Now, you'll have a drop-down menu to the left of the user bar. Use this "Switch Account" drop-down to change from your OOC account to your new character's. You can find "Edit Profile" under User Controls to go to your profile edit screen. Fill out as much, or as little, of this as you like. Biography can be done, or not, at leisure. We recommend at least filling in the play by field, so that others know who you're using. Some players may not mind sharing a PB, so if you're interested in doing so, PM them.

Once this is filled out to your liking (you can edit it later, don't worry), go to Modify Profile at the top of the edit profile screen, and find "Group Membership." Sort them where they go by clicking Join Group, and you're done! Go play!

We recommend you have a plotter, a lot of members don't feel comfortable PMing, and find it easier to plot in threads. Alternatively, post an open!
