Summer started with a searing heat wave, which has gradually been tapering off. Now that the coastal winds have begun cooling central Rhyallia off, summer trading is again picking up. There are concerns that the intense heat may be a sign of a hard, hot summer and worries over crop failure.
Administrator and Creator: flippedside
For as long as I can remember, I've loved creating stories. Writing, drawing, role-playing--they all create stories, so they've all been a part of my life in one form or another. When I originally started Identity (2008!?! Where has the time gone?), I wanted a fairly open-ended role-play, where people were free to come and simply create. Of course, I also run the site. Mostly, that means I'm happy to talk with anyone who comes by. Feel free to add your suggestions (we have a whole board for that!) or comments or thoughts...or whatever.

I've always enjoyed writing, but I only started roleplaying when my friend recruited me to an RP site four years ago (where's the time gone?!). Since then, I've improved a lot (my old stuff was cringe-worthy, trust me) and become a staff member on several sites, Identity included. Being a Global Mod usually involves being online when flippedside isn't, so there's usually one member of staff present to help out, and taking care of the ads as well as general rule enforcement. Which I'm hoping you little angels won't need...right?

Brand new, Proboards v5 board! Open (again) for role-playing. Yay! That said, I am still updating some images, so if some of the images don't match and/or seem half done...It's probably because I haven't completed or updated them yet. I didn't want to leave the board in MM too long, and only I have a limited amount of time to work on it. So, there may still be some minor image updates. However, the code and layout is finished. Let the RPing begin!
In here you will find not only Identity's rules, but also information about the world of Rhyallia and the lands beyond. It's recommended that you take the time to browse the Great Library of Teth, which contains important records that you will need to know for role-playing here. The History board expands on the story and provides additional information.
Please read everything here before creating a character. It contains important information that you need to know. Also, use the form provided to start a new thread under Character Applications when you are ready to create your character.
Central Rhyallia is a low, heavily forested river valley with mountains flanking either side. The capital of Rhyallia is located here. It is the center of the country in trade, technology, magic schools, and power.
The Crescent Plains are low coastal flatland mixed with shallow marshes. To the west, the Plains rise into low hills before shifting to the mountains of the Castan Range. The Plains are the most fertile land in Rhyallia and farms, local markets, and river trade dominate the area. Some of the biggest rebel holdouts are located here, as well.
The plains are largely flat with high grasses and wild horse herds. There are low hills to the west. The people who live here are usually nomadic, with earth and air shifters being the most common inhabitants.
The southern end of the Isca Peninsula is a beautiful place with a mild climate and low coastal hills mixed with flatlands. Swamps, mountains, and heavy forests make the northern end of the peninsula far less hospitable.
They are not called the Kanat Highlands without reason. The area is mostly high mountains with thick pine forests. The coastal region is made up of sharp rocks and steep bluffs. Night shifters most commonly make their home here, enjoying the rough landscape. Wolf packs and wild sheep are often sighted scrambling over the steep rocks.
Advertisements go here! Please do not post more than once; there is a master list of all the sites posted on here. Nothing graphic in your advertisement, please, this is a PG-13 forum. Also, we must be able to link back to your site without signing up, using a form, etc.
