The site has just recently been launched and, as such, is sparsely populated with content and thickly populated with errors. The “engine” that runs the site is still being tweaked and adjusted to offer a custom experience that a play-by-post RPG and fictional setting requires.
If you’re new to the site please stop by the “Introductions” thread in the General Discussion to introduce yourself.
The General Discussion forum is also a great place to start an out of character dialogue
If you’re unfamiliar with how to upload your own avatar, add the date that you started role-playing on MT, or include a forum signature with your posts I’ve created a brief video walking you through the steps. Hopefully it will allow you to customize and make your profile fit you more!
The site is now out of maintenance mode and accepting members! While the role-playing is primarily focused on the setting of Lycosia, other sub-forums have been created and are available to explore. If you have an idea for an additional sub-forum or are looking for a new, free home for your role-playing setting/group/discussion then look no further! MT can provide free sub-forum hosting with the potential for future site/sub-domain hosting. If you’re interested reach out via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
The enormous effort of rebuilding this storied entity will require lots of help. As such, I am desperately searching for people interested in becoming a “community guide”.
This role is sort of a mix of moderator, mentor, and storyteller. Some of the tasks that could potentially fall under the purview of this role:
Moderate forum content (move/edit/delete posts).
Provide assistance to members (greetings, suggestions, answers).
Develop new content (In Character development, forum areas, WikiContent, rules).
Engage in dialogue regarding the direction of The Mystic Tavern.
Encourage growth by serving as an ambassador for The Mystic Tavern to other communities.
Although there are no set attributes or requirements for an applicant being familiar with role-playing (forum/chat/email) is helpful. A basic technical aptitude is also helpful since this forum and wiki (forthcoming) can require you to tackle tasks specific to those platforms. If you are interested reach out in the comments of this post or shoot an email to email@example.com and let me know. Community guides are receive a cool forum badge and their own @themystictavern.com email address!
A once sprawling, enormous community that was largely housed on Lycos but eventually spilled over into dozens of forums, chat systems and web pages before going dark.
Over the years, numerous attempts have been made to resurrect the play-by-post RPG setting cherished by many and this site is just the latest example.
