Welcome to Solaris

The World of Solaris is a text-based role-play environment set on a world called Solaris. The planet of Solaris orbits a binary star system in an alternate plane of reality referred to as the Nomaverse. Planet Solaris is filled with mixed fantasy elements intertwined with technology and science. We have everything from pixies, goblins, and dragons to floating cities, flying space trains, and interdimensional travel. Interaction between players is completely acted out via play-by-post forums. We have a very dedicated community of role-players who strive to develop and improve our role-play environment. In one form or another this role-play environment has been an ongoing project since the summer of 1996.

Participating in the World of Solaris is like working with others on a collaborative story. Each player's character has a role in the world and the more involved they choose to be the greater their role will be. We focus on mature and literate role-play to provide a creative outlet for all players involved. We welcome all those who may be interested in role-play here in the World of Solaris. It's an endless adventure and we always have a new storyline in the works. Speaking of storylines, check the next section for more details on our current storyline.

About the World of Solaris

The World of Solaris is currently equipped with fourteen individual character races, with seven job class selections, and seven different personality types. Each job class has eight unique abilities available to it. Players are also allowed to create completely unique custom abilities for their characters. This allows for thousands of possibilities and keeps characters completely unique.

Every character begins his or her story differently and develops uniquely over time. The World of Solaris is a place of endless possibilities and outcomes if you are creative, as each player drives his own characters development. While each character of Solaris can be made to do whatever he wants, for the most part, the environment itself is driven by an ever-changing storyline that's been ongoing for over 19 years.

Current Storyline

Shortly after the destruction of Elyndrel Village, the collapse of Grey Fenrir and his armies, and the move to Elyndaar City; the Elyndrians are greeted with a frosty wind from the distant southern reaches of planet Solaris. This cold front is like none they have ever encountered before. It is both unnatural and foreboding. Soon enough the land will freeze over and even the tropical beaches of Xhan Tarn will be left as nothing more than a frozen expanse. The southern oceans are all frozen solid. The creatures of the world flee to the north and those who can't escape quickly enough are becoming frozen in their tracks, left as solid statues of ice as a magical wall of frost sweeps over them.

Soon enough the Elyndrians will uncover the truth however... The Dragonkin consort of Lord Kelthuron, Queen Vishera, has become corrupt and seeks to freeze the entire world. Her mind has been bent and twisted by a mysterious and unnatural force. Her power has been greatly amplified by this corruptive force and she has grown more powerful with every passing day. Will the Elyndrians stop her or will her powerful ice magic consume the entire world? Only time will tell.

So, what's next?

A band of powerful Elyndrians must travel to the distant south, navigate the treacherous Frozen Region, locate Vishera's Vale, break into the Den of Vishera, and stop the Ice Queen from freezing the entire world. It won't be easy and it will require four to six level 100 characters to raid her den and take her down.

This storyline is the stepping stone into the further development of level 100 raids and taking down the new World Bosses who threaten the World of Solaris. There are many riches to be earned and quite possibly some impressive loot to obtain. It's all up to the Elyndrians to figure out how they want to go about getting it done though.
